As the title states Enough is Enough, 

 

I started playing this game as did many of you on the NA server many years ago and then jumped onto the Asia server as soon as we could do so for that better ping, started a great clan with some of the best players in the game and then life got in the way for about 4-5 years.

 

Now that I have been back for 6 months I have to say the MM ( 3,5,7) is killing this game, I was reading a post from 09/08 with the stats for 50 games in one tank as you will see attached and it is the same results as myself over 50 games or 100 games in many different T8 tanks.

My Son started to play this game and gave up after Tier 5 when he spent more time getting killed and not able to do anything, he is now off playing Fortnite.

So when you enter a game now you will expect to be bottom tier 50% of the time, Is this to make you hit the 2 key and spend more money ? well thats what it feels like anyway, half the tanks in the game have very little chance against tanks one let alone two tiers higher then you.

Am I supposed to be satisfied with jumping in a low tier tank and getting three penetrating shots off out of 6 before being over run by bigger tanks?

I dont see why MM cant be +1 -1 most of the time not 3.5.7, I have spent a lot of money on tanks as I do like to play all types and tiers but it has come to a stage that unless you are in a 9 or a 10 get ready to have your work cut out in game.

 

The other thing is Arty in the game now, I recall years ago everyone complained arty was OP when I could one shot a E100 in my T92 but now I find the maps are more open and if you are in a large Heavy Tank look out. 50% of the games seem to have 3 arty and this stun crap has gone to far, you will be left permanently tracked at times or unable to move from behind a building ( Thats if you have a building left on these maps now)

I recall a time when you could play a match and not use a repair kit or med kit, NOT ANY MORE.......

 

So WG just a couple of things I would love to have a real answer too really,

 

1,  Why should I keep spending money on the game?

2,  Why shouldn't I just Uninstall WOT as it feels as if all you are after is money and the fastest way you can out of us.

3,  Why still have Arty in the game or more so allow 3 arty in any one match at a time?

4,  Why do we have to have 3,5,7 match making ? and please dont tell us its because of server numbers. ( E.U has it also with more people)

 

5,  Why would I recommend this game to others with the current issues in Arty and MM, Funny thing is Im not the only one with these issues as many of WOT contributors feel the same.

 

The only thing that keeps me playing at the moment is that I found a great group of people to play with otherwise I would walk away from this game again as so many have already.

 

Rant over.......

Had a game in Westfield with 3 artys on each team today. Both team were camping because if anyone make a sightly aggressive move, they get shorted by 3 artys at once. It was a stupid game that ended up with a draw.

 

And people tell me arty prevents camping, sure.

Which tiers are you playing? because in the tier i play (8-10 usually) arty is pretty rare. Playing this weekend and getting open maps with no arty was very refreshing. Maybe it is the times i play in.

I dont think you got the point, it was better when you could one shoot a tank with arty as they didnt have the stun affect they do now...... and people did complain about T.D's look at the 268-4 ?

I play all tiers and will switch between Hong Kong and ANZ depending on time and population.

Since you have 664 games in a tier x arty I will take your word for it.

Well, compared to you all I'm pretty new to this game....But as for there being 3 Arty in the game- what I observed in the few Tier 10 games last week in Skorp G, there is almost always only 1 Arty....Though yes, in tier 5-6-7 there is always 3 Arty-s in a game.

Regarding the MM problem - yup, MM over Tier 6 is shit...All my Skorp G games last week, I was the bottom tier...But somehow I got great teams who took care of the opponent Tier X-s and I also contributed as well as I can. On an average I can say that in Tier 6 games I'm getting top tier 1 out of every 3 games...And as I'm playing TD-s in general, I don't have to take the risk to go to the front and face the tier 8 HT in the other 2 games.

This justification gets brought up so often and yet you people always seem to forget the rebuttals. Anything to not feel bad about playing your [Content Removed], right.

Oh please stop complaining about arty.

It was not as powerful as it once was. I see now arty acting as a flusher, nothing more. The damage it created is now mediocre at best. It cannot one shot nor take out 2000+ damage out of a Maus.

 

Furthermore, there are not many arty players anymore, yes in a battle you will see up to 3 vehicles but mostly arty players who just graduated from arty academy. Most green up to purple arty players as quit long time ago.

 

And remember the great arty nerf ? For a while, people are actually complaining about how deadly TD was and how lazy a TD players is (just sit back and snipe). But I guess people had forgotten about it and back to arty haters.

 

As a person that has played 16,000+ battles, you should already memorized which mountains, rocks, houses, dog house, bird house that are big enough to hide your tank. And dont forget that arty loads long, so you should start counting whenever arty just fired and do your tanking stuff and back to cover before the next salvo. But if you still got hit, then it is your fault.


Please buff arty !

arty ruins random battles , 

 

I have been helping a new player and he points out these problems to me

 

1. The new bootcamp took him 6 hours of playtime to finish

2. He struggles to buy what he wants because he doesnt have  enough credits

3. In his  tier 5 the tier 7 tanks shoot him with gold rounds most battles  {the tier 7 is top tier}

4. Building a crew from 75% to sixth sense takes a long time

5. Arty just pound him to bits {has to run and hide just to play a tank game}

6. tryed to demount equipment but has no gold so cant do it and there is no credit option

 

I dont think he will get past tier 7 and he will quit the game


RIP MUM 02/08/2018 May your spirit carry me on till we meet again

1 sounds like more of an issue as to whether he then has a decent understanding of the game. Given how many bads are out there maybe they should make it longer. 

 

2 is their standard business model. Doing more damage will help as will sticking to the mid tiers, buying premium / premium tank. 

 

3 better to learn early rather than later not to rely on armor. 

 

4 fun fact, sixth sense didn't exist back in the day. Plus starting crews were 50%.

 

5 get him to play some arty. It's a good way to learn how to counter it effectively. 

 

6 stick to binocs, nets, toolbox when starting. More than enough for the lower tiers anyway. Then wait for one of WG's rare gold missions.
