The last couple of months. Poor teams would be the main reason but I think it’s been amplified by the claustrophobic feeling I’ve been getting of late. I’ve been playing turret-less TDs and I’m fed up of seeing small maps.

Over a year ago. Only play a few games for my x2's then fortnite/warframe. More fun. 

 

i mean if you don't balance the game, it will drive people away. Simple really. 1 balance update a year is pathetic, and a weak lame assed one at that. 

 

Not to mention the shite maps/rotation. And turd game modes which i do not want to play over and over again.

 

My back aches already carrying these potatoes; even harder when my team don't know how to play different game modes.

 

You don't address the glaring problems; just churn out endless rip off premium tanks to milk the masses.

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

 

Tonight will be another all premium night. Usually start with 6s then 7s and finish off with 8s.

You know, thinking about this, if WG was smart, they'll put on some insane amazing sale this black friday to make all of us forget about last year's debacle.

 

I don't think WG is smart enough to do that, but I'd like to be proven wrong

 

That's what I would do if it were my company. In fact they may have no choice. More and more of my friends on my friends list when I log on are playing something other than WOT. Destiny and COD WWII have pulled a lot of my WOT friends away. They have to do something this holiday season to draw some back and gain new players or it truly might be the beginning of the end for me and maybe you and everyone else. LOL

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.

Removing content without some decent explanations why. 

Extreme Weather maps.

Pricing policy aka greed.

Boring maps.

No end game content.

No competitive modes.

Stupid nerfs/buffs.

European forum shutdown.

 

So i uninstalled after spending hundreds of €. They can even have my remaining prem time. Hoping for AW to be better.

I would love to have some of the old maps back.

Other than that, nothing.

I am still playing

No jump the shark moments.  Just constant bad matching, total boring/frustrating grinds, nothing really special about reaching tier X after doing all that grinding, just crappy game play with very expensive tanks and huge silver cost. Plus on the PS4, the player base is quite low.  800 players on the NA server this morning. Not good for tank match making.

 

Not finding much incentive to play WOT.  I play a couple matches and then want to find something else to do.

Letting the game go to PS4 was a stupendously bad idea.

split the player base and made mm worse.

 

But the biggest thing for me was premium betrayal.

 

Spend money because they tell you "this will never be sold again" , hurry up before you lose your chance, it's rare it's cool, its special, BOOOOOOOM here you go everyone can have it.

THEN its either free/earnable or cheaper to boot!

 

THEN the give you duplicate black tanks to tanks you already have/paid for, so you call their bluff waiting for them to be cheaper the second go around and OH guess they aren't going to sell those anymore!

 

THE ONE set of tanks they will NEVER sell again, not the fury, no the 4/5, not the t23.... but the black sta 2 of all things.

ITs like they have a dart board with random decisions written on it, and blind fold up the newest member of the staff, spin him around like he's going to whack at a piñata, and duck while he throws a dart.... Quick take a look, where'd the dart land? OK were going to do THAT!

seriously, a change of leadership/management hasn't happened at this point? It's honestly a joke.

Not letting the game go to PS4 would have been a mistake. Many people, me included would never have started playing or paying if the game would have stayed Xbox only. And I think I have payed my fair share as a customer.

Every company should have someone in charge that despises the playerbase, right?  

 

Right?

And WG does not even try to hide that their leadership despises the playerbase... At least they could put some energy and effort into making us believe they respect the playerbase, but oh no. I say like I always do, I love this game and I think some of the WG employees here on the forum seem like nice people but the management and some others are really not good at their jobs.

The WG people I have dealt with, for the most part, have been top notch..

 

A couple stand out as some of the absolute best, others not so much..

 

They can only do so much though, when the leadership seems bent on running the game into the ground..
