Yea I forgot about the PS4 players lol.

Well I still hold a pretty firm stance regarding not upgrading until they give me a reason to or until they give me some faith in the future of this game.

 

Seriously. It's not a money issue. I can go buy a Xbone right now but there is zero incentive to.  I don't have faith in the longevity of the game  nor do I believe they will do anything to improve the game other than more tanks and maps. 

 

Cant say I blame you. I basically only use my premiums now. Going to run my founders T23 tonight lol

Was the first tank I ran tonight.  Ran 3 tanks since and still waiting for the t23 game to end lol.  All I know is i went out with 20 damage ribbons 6 spots 6 spotter damage and 2 kills.    That was like 2 min into the game.  Might Yolo rush all night just for fun

Actually had a decent ( for me lol) game in it first match. 4 more were city/corridor maps and I kept getting blocked in by idiot teamates. Gave up after that. Got killed by a Bert the last match, been ages since arty got me.

Also it's an absolute embarrassment that the 360 is still supported in 2017 (and in the foreseeable future) 
Hold back the game until you completely kill it WG

For me, it began the run to the jump ramp with the reskins, and reached the midpoint of the jump with the physics change. Right now, the jump looks like it will end with a very happy full shark following the flawed release of War Stories and the refusal to adequately fix Ranked Battles. The Swedish line helped a little, but doesn't appear to be enough to save the jumper.

When we got Anime Tanks.

The "Naitcha Tanka" TocFanKe4

I stream inconsistently and often with beer : https://www.twitch.tv/tocfanke4 Stream contains language that is inappropes.

I first got salty over the "black edition" on the barrels of the tanks I wanted to buy, so I didn't buy them. Then I got even more salty when they bundled the V/IV that I'd been waiting to get. My $1,000+ a year donation to WG stopped after that.

I know the 360 is a burden for you but I don't recall any time after the Xbone release where the player base grew. I could be wrong since I stopped caring long ago and wouldn't debate any proof/claim otherwise.

 

 

Free T-Rex coincided with XBOX1X release...numbers were up on the weekend, lots of T-Rex's driving around.....

I know this might not be the worst thing, but my salt levels towards WG management really started rising when the bundler first struck. Paywalling tanks I wanted was the first indication that things were taking a turn for the worse and my purchasing became limited to just premium time.

I get the feeling you don't really get the meaning of "jumping the shark."

 

https://en.wikipedia...mping_the_shark

 

You're probably thinking, "going downhill." For me, WG jumped the shark with derp Hammer, which was the point I saw as them committing to earn-ops that at the time were still new. Technically they started with the Motherland, but when derp Hammer and its crappy design hit, I was sure they were never going to stop and we were just going to keep seeing more and more of the ops despite player and consumer fatigue.

 

As for when it truly went downhill, that'd be last year, when WG-CB's parent company started picking fights with YouTubers, which was also around the time WG-CB itself decided everything needed to be in a bundle, every bundle had to be at least $30, and some bundles needed to be $250+. They also just stopped issuing base bundles, period. It was Ultimate, Loaded, or nothing.


Be verbose - you have a vocabulary for a reason.

 

Good with words; bad with tanks. At least I can talk you to death.

When they decided catering to the 360 players and basing the entirety of the games development on 12 year old hardware and trying to convince us that it's a good thing.

This, plus anime tanks, plus non-optional comic book mode

 

edit: also black tanks, current pricing, and WG not caring certain tier Xs and most arty are hilariously unbalanced

 

I do still play here and there though, the halloween mode is something I enjoy yearly. I wish the halloween himmelsdorf had been in the halloween rotation too though.

So...I guess I’m gonna be the voice of dissent here, but I think in most ways the game has been improved over the years. New maps, tanks people have wanted, new game types, crew customization...etc. the earnable tanks have gotten me to at the very least complete that op each month. 

There have been some setbacks. I feel bad for the foreign server users who just got dumped over here with all us English speakers, I was really salty that the entire tank package I bought last year was an earnable prize this year leaving me nothing at all to earn, the anime tanks are horrible and shouldn’t have been allowed in. The news releases have become more sporadic and less informative. 

All in all I think it’s still a great game. I’m still playing.

I am working way too much to have time to play as much as I would like. The game is still fun and exciting for me and actually my only bother is the decline of player numbers. I really wish WG could see the game from the perspective of their players and potential customers  and not only as devs and as a company. WG trying to see the game with our eyes would hopefully make them see at least some of the mistakes they have made. My shark moment must have been when tanks went over 15000 gold for ONE imaginary tank that one does not actually buy, but rents from WG. I hope WG will cut the prices by half and try to make cool and enjoyable events in the game. We really need new players and the cost of the newer tanks together with a lack of faith in that the game will survive very long is not good ingredients to make veterans nor new player willing to pay for premiums.

It will have jumped the shark for me when I stop playing, stop appearing on this forum and move on to something else.........I have enough $$$ into this game, I'll be around until they turn the lights out.  Some nights I don't play, some I have the urge to play for hours......I took about a month off this summer, came back with renewed interest but feel another break coming......who knows.

Honestly, probably when they increased the price of the Liberte and Freedom.

I kept playing of course, but that moment was probably the start of all of the horrendous pricing.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.
