Already asked my clanmates to boycott this game (i.e. stop spending any real money) for a week in support of Sirfoch. Lets see how WG reacts to this and then plan our next move. Most of my clanmates are free players anyways, but just to make sure everything goes as per plan...

I can't justify spending a penny on the game anymore. In fact, i just spent the exact same amount of money it would have costed me for a Chrysler K for an entirely different game. 

 

Well done WG balance department. Well done WG developers. Well done WG EU community department.

from Jingles is a more appropriate way to express the issues regarding recent prems...

although TBH my _private_ opinions regarding the prems are EXACTLY the same as Foch's.

was his vid OTT out of line, yup. considering the age of some of the player base, unacceptable.

does his opinion mirror the concerns of a lot of players. YES.

I haven't spent a penny on this game yet since I started playing it 3 years back. not a bright idea to spend money over a virtual game. But I have a ton of premiums by grinding only marathon missions and by winning in forum contests. So nothing lost here for me. But I don't want to see something which I loved so much die out like this :(

I dont think he wants to leave but voicing his opinion to stop WG from being too pay to win and stop creating OP tanks like the defender and new GF tank and thus telling players to use gold ammo to win

Not foch, but some of his goon that join this WG demonize party. Probably remnants of last "WOT is dead" group. But the coverage of this drama are not really wide in major playerbase, and among those who know are quite divided in their view. Doubt it will actually hurt WG prem to win policy, or kill the game.

I suspect many of us feel the same. My worry is if they continue to erode the core values of a F2P competitive game the game may indeed continue to fade. At least they can't say they weren't warned.

 

Placing balance back ahead of revenue as the primary motivator of releases would be a start.

Worst I can get is a warning & the topic locked; I don't remember reading anywhere that I can't post news about popular streamers. It'll only make WG look worse if they try to silence people talking about it.

From past experience not having a specific rule that addresses what you've posted does not necessarily preclude a post's or your removal.

Owners of WG are Russian, and their mindset could be from the Soviet era. I sincerely doubt they are democratically inclined. But since they are now a global entity, they will need to adapt to what the rest of us expects of them, or they can also choose not to.
What is clear is they are steering this boat straight into an iceberg. What is not clear is what do they want to do about it. 
​I suspect any course of action would require some time, because it would mean altering the philosophy of the company, all the meetings, approvals and general red tape that these decisions take. Turning a big boat just takes time. 
WoT would be better served with more maps that keep the interest alive because more pixel tanks are just the same thing with skins and altered stats. Proposed 'bonds' in 9.19 will/is not 
received well because it will divide the players further. New players will be even less competitive and may give up sooner. On the other hand, the Ranked Battles mode and Chevrons are great.
Every WoT streamer is playing the new BR game, perhaps a sign that they are looking for a lifeboat.

I agree on adding more maps. Even if they change how the MM select maps, it is still kinda feel repeating for (some) players that already fought 10k+ battles.

New maps appease the long term players. It would appear WG have moved to a shorter term revenue model.

Some rough numbers as an example.

 

$$$$$ Defender/252. $40 USD up to $80 USD bundles.

 

over 56k sold.

 

At least $220k USD on a single premium tank alone. 

Patriot/t26e5: ~48k sold, Liberte/M4 49: ~48k sold.

 

You can probably reduce the amount earned by ~25% because of the RU server. 

 

Skorpion G has sold over 100k. 

 

Just think at how much each cost to make and how much they earn.

they need more... and more... and more... even tho what they earn lately could enrich every single employees, develop the game to be better (without considering the moon base)

but when it comes to consider about the moon base... well, it's not cheap y'kno.... definitely need lotta paper

Tbh 20k battles and I still haven't learned all the current maps properly... I think game balance is the immediate thing that needs addressing.
