I'll be dumping screnshots of <special> teammates. As per rules I'll be anonymizing screenshots.

Ummm, what's the point?

 

Potato team mates are part of the game.  Sometimes you get them, and get to eat it.  Other times, you get team mates who can just kill it, and you can coast.  Heck, when I get a stock plane (no upgrades at all), I have to potato for a few battles to figure out how to make it do stuff.  I've seen normally-great pilots have crap battles, too.

 

Fly your battle, and don't worry about what others do - you have zero control over that.

Logic is a feeble reed, friend. "Logic" proved that airplanes can't fly and that H-bombs won't work and that stones don't fall out of the sky. Logic is a way of saying that anything which didn't happen yesterday won't happen tomorrow.

And your point is what ? 

 

Stop worrying about how other's play and start flying and playing your own game. 

 

A lack of intelligence is proven by: 

Not taking age into account. 

Not taking internet service into account. 

Not taking computer system into account. 

What about being called away for some emergency. 

 

Really who knows what is going on with the other person that he can not meet your expectations of excellence.

When people cant meet your expectations the best thing to do is take another drink so you stop caring.  

 

I was in a match the other day with a mix flight of tier5 plus tier9. 

Thought they were good enough to carry the match and I could just work on my daily mission attacking the airfield.

 I have never been more wrong in my life. We lost by a landslide because they can't carry together. 

Heck I am on a different computer in Florida instead of being home in Maryland. Different internet, different ping I have to get use too.  

Of course was also AFK some of the match trying to take care for my dad but still got some points towards my mission.

You need to be grateful to have at least one teammate, i mean, look at that screenshot!.....10 bots per team...oh god!...How can people keep playing like that??

What do you expect? FYI ..You're playing Warplanes!...Do you want to wait half an hour or 45 minutes until someone with the same W/R, same number of battles, same average aerial/ground targets destroyed etc, shows up!?...

I was thinking it might have been me, but

I don't own that plane and...

I was busy making drinks around that time & date

.

.

.

if it had been me you'd have prolly won,

MM gives my BotS SuperSkillz to handicap for me being on team

that's why I have a win rate over 49%

stats are what makes a man a man

:sceptic:

sugar and spice are what makes...

:facepalm:


if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I know what you are fishing for with that rhumb line of yours:

it's been awhile...

but I think it still has pertinence

.

you be the judge here

The first line is about bad teams, but what about the second?    

Well, I do agree with the second line, but tell us why you're so upset about this?

Was he 'toxic' in-game?    Were you?    Are we allowed to guess?
