Hi guys,

 

I follow QuickyBaby, a WoT YouTuber for the PC version and saw a video of his from the other day, which was about whether or not WoT itself was dying. Makes for interesting listening and is worth a watch if you've the time. Bare in mind that he's talking about the PC version, but I think a lot of what he's talking about can be heard within the community here too.

 

So here's the video for you all, let me know your thoughts bellow...

Yeah what I heard was almost identical to the complaints I'd seen from people here in the forum sadly, so I guess with Fortnite and PUBG outdoing wargaming, they're going to need to step up a tad...

Wow, someone made a video saying something. Does it really matter? I’ll be playing until I get bored or the servers turn off. Some people take this game way too seriously.

Until it turns out the bots will play at ultra super unicum level and their tanks will have boosted stats, further contributing to the declining player base until you have 15 v 15 bot matches. People will then be able to wager on the outcome with bonuses for predicting which bot gets which hero medal.

I watched it last night, to be honest I have always thought QB was a bit of a propagandist for WoTs over on PC, taking much he says with a big pinch of salt.

However, when he actually comes out with a video saying what he does in this one, then to you have to think things are getting serious.

Admittedly it is over on PC but a lot of what he says parrallels the course WoTs console seem to be following over here.

(One has to wonder what the Mercenary introduction would have looked like on one of QB's graphs?)

Which was basically why a former community contributor (AJ) left - Respect, or lack of?

 

I won't say anymore we seem to live in perilous times here on the forum.

 

Oh, before all the sugarcoaters storm in,  yes it's all my fault.

I promise I'll try to "Git Gudd" and think MM & RNG are brilliant here on console..

Or just accept that WOT is a niche game with a niche audience that will eventually die as it stagnates or evolves into something you no longer enjoy to change with the times. Either way WOT won't stay as it is forever

K...now where is that follow-up video with QB's solutions to improve the game?

 

The 13. (Tiger) Kompanie, of Panzer Regiment Großdeutschland, reported on the performance of the 88 mm KwK 36 L/56, when their Tigers engaged the T-34: "First round hits were usually achieved at ranges between 800 to 1,000 meters. At these ranges, the Panzer Granate (they are referring to the PzGr. 39 APCBC ammunition) absolutely penetrated through the frontal armor, and usually still destroyed the engine at the rear of the T-34 tank. In 80 percent of the cases, shots from the same range hitting the side of the hull toward the rear of the tank resulted in the fuel tanks exploding. Even at ranges of 1,500 meters and longer, during favorable weather, it is possible to succeed in penetrating the T-34 with minimal expenditure of ammunition" (JENTZ, Thomas L.; Germany's TIGER Tanks - Tiger I and II: Combat Tactics; op. cit.).

3 MoE tanks: T-34, Pz IVH, Tiger I, Pz.Kpfw. T 25, M7, T-50

Last time I saw someone post a video like this for console, they got moderated. Hmm.

When people have invested time and money into something, or in QB's case been able to earn money from it, then yes it does matter. Shocking that people don't want that investment to go completely to waste. :facepalm:

Console, by far. PC has always had a drastic numbers advantage over console.

I thought it was a good vid - We can certainly see the parallels here on console where bad decisions get piled onto earlier bad decisions and any dissenting voices from the players are ignored and just dismissed as moaning/whining. Commander mode being a real case in point - something no-one has asked for, has taken time and resources away from improving the core game and which also takes more players away from the main multiplayer game. 

 

QB has also started an alt account to see whether it is possible to play PC WOT for free in 2018. He's admitted frequently that its a real struggle to do it and said it is no wonder new players aren't sticking with the game. He's been compiling a list of problems he's seen with trying to play WOT from scratch, it will be interesting to see whether WG act on his notes to them.
