With the news this week of project X Cloud from Microsoft and a similar project from Google the player numbers could be about to rise in the future ..

So with crossplay in the future and the ability to play Xbox games on any device you don't think more will play tanks ? .. Er ok

We loose our player not because we don`t have croosplay...we loose them because devs constantly destroy their own game. As long as this trend stay, nothing can help us :(

Can't see this making a difference. Cross play will make things better though.

Ok think of all the people without a Xbox .. they will be able to play Xbox S quality games on any device .. You just pay a subscription like you do now with Netflix etc etc

It may entice NEW players to give the game a go, but how long they will stay for is a different matter

True but with influx of new players some of them will stay ..

If it does add players...I predict we will see even worse gameplay than we see now. Yikes

Hope so, but I feel the game is no longer cool.

Gotta catch them all! ^^

I think what most doom mongers forget is life keeps rolling and everyday new people are discovering new to 'them' films, tv, music, games etc etc.

 

And the vast majority of people who play this game never visit this toxic pool of negativity

Agreed.

 

If they do visit this forum or Reddit they won’t even give the game a chance, why would they?

That theory relies on the assumption there is a pool of gamers out there that would game if they did not have to buy a console.

At the very least.  I think it also relies heavily on the concept that there's a substantial pool of untapped players who want to play WoTC but are not already doing so.  There was a super bowl ad.  People are aware the game exists.  We've already looked under every rock for new tankers.  Short of rediscovering a lost civilization and giving them all xboxs, there is no new influx of population ever to be had.

To say something about the whole point of negativity turning people away from the game, I'd say that's only true for a very small fraction of new players.

 

Like you know when people make the PSA's for what not to do directed at people that just threw their game? They usually get told most people that need to see that aren't on the forums right?

 

And those are people already involved with the game, when we speak for the completely fresh players, and the  fact that the methods of seeing and speaking to the  community are merely tucked away to the side, how many are really going to be affected by the negativity here?

We already have millions of players that downloaded the game. Access to the game is NOT the problem

As I said before ..

"If you throw enough sh17 against a wall, some of it has gotta stick." ...

 

believe me I no fan of wgc policymakers as I agree with all of you that the main problem is the game, but people will always want to play a tank game .. I tried the other two and they don't hold up.

 

Eventually WG main office will look at the figures and move on the people who are making these strange marketing decisions.

 

I have seen it countless times before in companies who have failing divisions, the core idea of the game is great. The problem is in the marketing, customer service and management of the console game.
