Yo, WG, a question for you: On what basis should anyone pay money for a tier 8 premium - given that the vast majority of the time they'll be facing tier 10s?  People might as well just play tier 10 and be done with it.

In case you forgot: you're a business, not my employer. I used to play the game because it was fun; continuously facing tier 10s is not fun. You want my money? What my support as a player?  Remember why your customers are here.

Bring out the tier 8 artillery and you might see me open up my wallet.

I would not advocate buying a T8 premium to anyone these days, unless it has the firepower and mobility to avoid/deal with TXs (so... pretty much just the Spaghetto).

But for something mediocre and slow like the Caer AX... forget it! That's just madness.

 

Even buying tanks as trainers isn't really worthwhile these days. Though I do wonder how the average XP/game returns over time for T8 premiums from before 3/5/7 to after it.

Apathy comes in a variety of flavors. Overall apathy for WoT is only one of them.

Prem MM tanks, problem solved

Noobs don't snipe because they are good at snipe; noobs snipe because they can't do anything else / People don't lose because they lemming; people lemming because they are losers

Do not confuse team strength with individual strength; a single enemy killed in a 1v3 is worth more than two enemies killed in a 4v2 / Lanchester's Square Law predicts in a 2v1, the side with 2 will end with 1.5 tanks remaining, so if you won with less than that remaining, you're actually noob, not pro

When you are not losing because you outnumber the enemy, your other flank is losing because they are outnumbered; it's just math

Law of mirror: When you are holding a 1v6 against the enemy, you own team is also getting 6v1 held by the enemy

Noob self-balancing theory: When you release a good tank, enough noobs will flood to play it, until the server stats become average again
