  • Tank Trials and the "pls leave" request: what would (or do) you do?

    First of all, I don't know if this happens everywhere but I suppose it could be a common behavior on old servers - (at least it is on mine atm). Here's what happens:

    Two teams enter TT and they begin to fight. Once a team gains about 3000 points, its players start to ask to their "enemies" to leave.

    "We got our kills. Thanks. Please leave.". Losers are supposed to quit their game and find a new one before the TT time window expires. If they can't, tough luck. They could just stay there and linger, letting the others kill them repeatedly untill they properly win the match (which already takes a lot less time) but apparently this is irritating and brings bad karma.


    Why asking to leave? Because a TT match can take up to 20+ minutes and that strategy allows the "winners" to get out in 10 minutes or less (eg: 3 or so if they're lucky and powerful). Obviously, on high levels the whole thing becomes boring, repetitive and useless as well so... I understand them.

    This is what I don't understand: nobody forces anyone to play TT. Nobody forces anyone to fulfill all of the daily requests that the game suggests. Still, there are some players who despise TT but feel the urge to participate and also get mad if people don't leave when prompted to. Not to mention the fact that leaping from match to match in order to find a winning fight can seriously damage gamers who want to play TT for real.

    Today I missed the first TT completely so I decided to give it a try on the 2nd turn. I got scolded by a guildmate because I decided to linger there and get nuked to death instead of leaving immediately. This caused her to finish her TT match in 10 minutes instead of the 3 she is used to. Complaints ensued. She wasted 10 minutes of her life because of me. The fun part is that she skipped the World Boss and went to bed shortly after the end of the match so her in-game schedule was pretty much done.

    Now I feel guilty of course (), but I want to ask you: is it the same on your server? What would you do or what do you normally do when something like this happens?

    Match with an alt, do tanks in 3s instead of 3mins, 10mins or 30mins. Fast, simple and effective. If someone asks you to leave unless you're a total asshat why not just leave, if your server isn't completely dead you'll still get matched afterwards.

      Sadly it's not that easy. Sometimes you keep switching teams and always end up on the losing side, thus being asked to "leave" multiple times. If you keep leaving, you'll get no prize in the end (you have to finish a match the proper way, wheter you win or lose, in order to gain runestones and EXP). It's not a matter of being weak either: almost everyone has got a Predator now.

        First of all why is anyone going in teams? everyone on my server goes in alone. whoever gets killed leaves and then enters again. this way everyone receives first place awards. sure you may have to enter 4 or 5 times if you lag worse than the others but everyone gets the best rewards possible. and there is usually someone in your guild with an alt that is able to help. going in in teams or staying in after you are killed is just wasting time for you and everyone else

          If everyone tried going in alone, it wouldn't work, because the game will combine singleton rooms into a team if everyone is matching at the same time, and with enough people, that's unavoidable.
          And I understand that tanks is abysmally awful, and the part of the game I hate most, but complaining that the other team didn't leave to make your life easier is just being a whiny entitled brat. Complaining because they bailed before you got any kills is entirely valid, however.

            When one team gets 1 kill on each tank, the other team is expected to leave on my server. There are some people who like long tanks on server, but most of them are known and the opposing team will all autoquit on them.

            Most people hate tanks, and playing by the "first kill rule" allows everyone to win...eventually.

              that would be the case if people use quick start. people in my server create a room where they are alone inside, click start and either get a friend or another toon to do the same. if they match against each other they are alone in that tank battlefield and after one gets a kill the other one with zero points leaves room. the one with 1 kill gets both victory and first place chest. it's a quick way to do tanks, but the annoying thing is that too many do the same in my server and some who mismatch just leave the room without letting the other party get a kill, which means you only get the victory chest. I figured out their trick because too many have been leaving the tank battle when they were alone.
              therefore, I only got the "please leave" request once because I quick started into a room where two player were doing that trick. I just left.


              I am all for removing tanks and replacing it with something else where you can get runestones. It's such a headache for just a few runestones.

                I've never had this requested of me or requested this of another in tank trials. Frankly it borders on silly. No. It is silly.

                  I only do tanks when there's an event and I go semi-afk against a team with the weakest tank. I stay and let ppl complain because it's either they enjoy their easy win or I quickjoin and waste a team slot because I don't want to play. And I don't want to sabotage a team.

                  If it's 1v1, I'll just give a kill and leave.

                    No it doesn't happen on every server

                    Everyone has an entitlement to play parts of the game as they wish. Nobody should be 'bullied' into doing something they do not wish to do. If the players don't like how the battles are going, they are free to jump to another battle zone, nobody is forcing them to stay. In short, do what you want to do to make your game fun

                    If you do decide to leave TT battleground, it would be courteous to let the bigger team score points off you, or have a team member join before doing so.

                      what annoys me is when u enter as a team and the other team all leave b4 u get a kill and then it is over, those who entered as a team lose the chest rewards whilst the other person/people who left are free to join again and have a chance at rewards.
                      I think it should be made that IF u leave tanks you lose u`r attempt and cannot rejoin again at least that way we won`t get people leaving all the time and IF they do at least they won`t have a chance at getting rewards when they have just stopped another team from getting any.

                        That would be the worst possible solution, IMO. Almost no one likes tanks, and forcing everyone to slug it out for a full round every day would make everyone miserable, all the time. Or they would start making multiple alts, to match up any team that might be starting at the same time, and maybe quit on them just to prevent them from matching against their real team.

                          The only way to do boring tanks is 1 VS 1, the one who gets kill first leave the room, 30 sec at most. Or u can ask in chat to someone to help u with a fast win. Never go on teams unless u realy enjoy tanks.

                            doing 4 v1 is better. make a group, then ask a guildmate to go solo and start at the same time as you do. he can leave after everyone got a kill or someone else entered the match by quickstart. or stay as a handicap to the opponent's team if they dont want to leave.
