The anime tanks remind me of the presidential election. It is very difficult to believe that something so mind boggling bad may actually happen.

I hope it is all just a rumour, it may break the camels back honestly, fingers crossed.

 

At least give us a setting option to turn them off in game so we only see a normal tank skin, please WG.

 

 

Oh and "boglingly" sounds better, just looks worse.

Honestly in light of recent events I think the poll needs to be restarted because there isnt an option for overall balance being utterly broken deliberately by seriously OP tanks at various tiers but most particularly tier 10 to encourage grinds. Then a 2nd related option for utterly broken tier 8 OP premiums that are so much better than most tech tree tier 8s they might as well be tier 9s with preferential MM only without any downsides.

Fair but it should be a new poll because people who originally voted may have voted differently if these options had been in the start. Also MM has been changed which might effect the responses. Also over buffed tier 10s needs to be added also. We need the results 0'd otherwise it gives misleading view of the community opinion.

Poll is a reasonable representation of a year ago. Not that WG would ever listen, but if they did I'm sure they'd understand the context.

I wold most definitely say MM and Illegal Mods.

But to go  a little further if WG wants to be innovative and keep the game alive look at those simple mods that people choose to use just for their practicality such as the "Automatically Return Crew" mod in garage that does not impact game play or give any player a distinct advantage in game and introduce it into the game, not that hard.

The current MM has just broken the game, I will never go intentionally AFK in a game but since the introduction of the new MM there has been a few where I have just gone YUP this one is gonna end bad. x 3 Maus and x3 E100 on enemy team and you get x3 T57 Heavy, x3 AMX 50B on yours on a town map, always going to end well NOT and no platoons where involved on either side.

An earlier suggestion was to break the HT's into Attack, Support and match them 1 for 1 accordingly, this should also be true for Mediums where you get 1 side stacked with Autoloaders and the other with single shot meds. The lack of armour on one side does not come into the equation when you are talking about the player skill level on the server.

Been having a discussion in the COAFs in regards to this, and we had mixed answers.  I have my view but want to see what everyone else opinion is.  So putting up a survey, maybe WOT might even take notice if we get enough votes. I will certainly present this to Tanitha for his review.

 

Happy to put up more options, just let me know and can add.

 

I have updated options/voting from other peoples comments.

 

The annoying part of the survey is you can only pick one.....

True but this is the problem with long term polls. The results become irrelevant or even misleading often as the game evolves. Poll can really only be relevant in the contect of at most a patch or two. For instance on the whole I like the MM changes since 9.18...with the exception of the CF at tier 8. However I strongly feel mostly that is because if the gross imbalances at tiers 8 & 10 with certain premium tanks way overbuffed relative to tech tree and certain superheavies being way overbuffed also. And this i feel is distorting the MM. So a year ago MM on the whole was something I really wanted WG to address and would have voted accordingly. A year ago we certainly already had some of the OP premiums and an overbuuffed e5 at tier 10 but it was no where near the issue it is now.

 

Things change and while it is interesting to reflect on what mattered to players a year ago surely we want WG to be focussed on or at least hear what really matters to players now.

Just an observation but would you really say that it is the new MM that has broken the game or actually it would be fine if the disparity in power between some of the tanks was addressed? In other words it isn't the MM but the tank balance that is the problem?

Both... mm was a bad move apart from finally addressing the top tier imbalances. Tank balanced is more pronounced as an issue because of how prescribed the mm is.

I just cannot understand why they are doubling down on unpopular decisions. MM is simply awful, and they know full well that the premium tanks are over-performing yet still keep pushing interviews downplaying that.... not to mention the impact of premium ammo and it's cost effectiveness in premiums.

 

The fantasy BS tanks are really the last straw. Trying to pander tot he Japanese crowd by offering tanks that are so ridiculous that I'm seeing 10+ in some matches on a team. They don't appear to apply any of the design constraints of other tanks.... even as loosely as the other cash-grabbing recent efforts.

 

Are WG so confident of their market that they feel it is acceptable to disrespect the players that have built their business? "Good will" seems to be worth nothing to this bunch.

The thing that irritates me the most in WOT are all the SPG players who feel the need to drown themselves when things start to go badly for them. Today I saw a member of PYRO drown his SPG when the tide of battle turned against him. There were still 7 tanks left including himself when he decided he needed a bath. This happens far too often and I personally feel there should be stiff penalties for doing it.
