So basicly no game development or balancing?

 

on YouTube you can see videos of a PC wot where the developers actually take the game and it's player base seriously.

Most of my friends moved on to other games this year because of the lack of innovation or even to address its players about it on the forums.


Hit points are to be used!

I already made a thread on 2016 catastrophies. A sad time for our most spectacularly failed developers/marketing teams

Wow! That's a lot of stuff in one year on the PS4 side! Given the amount of progress in such a short amount of time, I don't fully understand all the complaints.

Boom! There it is. Copy and paste. 

 

I think anyone who participates on the forums wants the game to do well (or is just doing so because it's really hard to play the game at work, and this is as close as you might get!). But they seem to be a doing a pretty decent job for a freemium console game; there seems to be a constant influx of new challenges, tanks, tank lines, and other things to keep people entertained. Perfect is the enemy of the good, and it also helps to remember that not everyone has the same views (just bring up arty, for example).

So it looks downhill until Aug 26th. Which is when the downhill spiral catches the car on fire and kills everyone inside whilst plummeting towards a cliff
