I can confirm this (just checked her site).

 

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

This can't be true number.

Adding the 0.46% decimal lends it credibility.

The game was definitely on life support for quite a while after their x lights landed with some weekends struggling to hit 10k online concurrent. 

 

It was nearly 17k concurrent at one point last night.

all game fade with time. This is no different. The game is out for a number of years. The playerbase is somewhat stable.  As new games come out, they naturally take players from games like this. Why this is news is beyond me. Games fade. They never outright die unless wg pulls the server plug. The game still can fill servers most of the day.  Only at odd hours does it have smaller teams.

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.

 

 

 

It has a new lease of life which I'm v.happy about. A few months back the servers were getting a bit quiet but WG have done a great job bringing it back to life.

 

Best multiplayer game ever made, alongside Battlefield 2.

Maybe look at the actual player numbers updated weekly in the pinned threads? 
Tier 10 lights saw a few campy cowards leave. 
Mercs saw a few pretentious history-buffs leave. 
Those downturns have been corrected and we're seeing high numbers again, for 2 months in a row. 
Threads like this are annoying for 2 reasons. 
1. You don't use facts, you're just attention-seeking 
2. You don't provide arguments, you're just attention-seeking

Still think they ought to have a look at lower tier MM though, +1 -1 below tier V. 

Most of those tanks are pre-war or early WW2 models, the guns on most struggle to penetrate some tanks that are one tier above them without Gold Ammo let alone having a chance against tanks two tiers up.

 

Another thing I would suggest is turning off that damned "Pay Gold" function on Ammo and Consumables.

It's probably off putting for new players who don't know it can be switched off, and for those of us who've had Gold nibbled away from their account who forgot to switch it setting up a new tank. (And those who've had it switched by an update without noticing).

Probably doesn't hurt WG's numbers that other games haven't been doing so hot. People coming back to something (relatively) more stable. The month Cyberpunk comes out, everyone's numbers are gonna tank.

 

 

….. Heh, "tank". :)
