I think when I joined this forum about 5 years ago, probably the first thread I saw was 'This Game is Dying' or something along those lines.  Since then, I've had nothing but continued enjoyment playing the game.  WOT has made numerous upgrades, included new tanks, new maps, updated the physics, etc.  One that players asked for that we got was the detection circle along with azimuth of aim.   The wait time for games is reasonable, and the match making is about as close to even as is needed.  Fabulous work.

 

I think what people really mean when they claim the game is dying, is they are miffed that something didn't go their way.  Then came to the boards hyperventilating with an oblique threat of quitting hoping to get their way.

Can’t confirm the game is dying, but it did have a huge die off in the population.  It seems to be holding steady at the moment.

Yup. If I received gold every time I heard "the game is dying" over the last five years,  I'd been one happy guy.

Totally agree OP. I mean, of course the game is dying. Just like every online game dies over time. I still have a lot of fun blowing up tanks.

But people love projecting that the game is dying because arty erased them or they got HESHed.

Eh, it is a running joke around here at this point :P

 

Every update prophesies the end of the game...people tell off WG...and then the cycle begins anew.

Blah blah blah, everything dies. The real question is:

 

 

Will her death be a factor in the sudden increase of World's population?

Global starvation? End of human race as we know it?

The speed of matchmaking has nothing to do with the health of the game.  In fact, it's probably contributing to its demise.

We're still down from the highs of 2015.  The Mercs update coincided with the worst numbers ever. WG finally noticed, took action, and provided more content and a balance pass.  I commend them for recovering from the Mercs fiasco and righting the ship.  

The acid test will be if they can maintain the numbers in the winter/spring as that was when we had the biggest drop last year.  I'm cautiously optimistic, but have a wait and see approach.

I think she is some kind of a humanitarian actress specializing in scenes of procreation, but I am really not sure. I don't watch TV much. :P

Valar Morghulis - applies to games as well. 

 

But despite the continuous prophecy of the disenchanted, that fate has not yet come to pass. And the population numbers have been trending upwards as of late, I would imagine mostly due to the pretty generous Winter Games Alpha.

When the stupid stuff happens,   like the removal of 87.46%  of the maps get removed for months.  The player base dies tend to die off,  who can blame them for not wanting to play the same 3 maps over and over.

Mostly agree I would also add that I think some people claim it is dying when there small group of friends either no longer play at all or play less. But though WG does somethings that baffle me or make some changes I do not like I do realize they build the game for a larger audience than just me & my group of friends.

This can't be true number.

 

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
