Since my last post about numbers being down from 3k average to 2.4k at 12.00 EU ... we are down to barely 2k.

And the plan? Bring in commander mode to further dilute the player base. You just couldn't make this %*@* up.

Whoever is making these decisions must be a genius or a complete mad person. Commander mode doesn’t even contribute to the long haul op. There’s virtually no reason to play it unless you like 90’s C&C games

It would be interesting to know what the number of players is in the other game modes daily.

When it was "Killer Robot" mode, I made it through about 3 games before I had enough of it.

Only played maybe as many Commander mode games as well.

I stopped playing War Stories a long time ago too. I beat all the levels, played some extra battle working on ops, but gave it up, for it ended up just being very grindy and boring. The seasonal ops WAY out weigh anything Island Race or War Stories ever could.

They're not why I keep turning on my Xbox and loading up tanks.

I would be surprised if Commander mode is getting much play.
When a man with a .45 meets a man with a rifle, you said, the man with a pistol's a dead man. Let's see if that's true. Go ahead, load up and shoot.

Just imagine for a moment if WG had concentrated all its resources on the core game:

No commander, robot, toy tanks, water in Himmelsdorf, war stories.

Instead clan wars, personal missions, maps, lots of maps, proper balance.

We wouldn't be in the *%@$ we are in now.

I actually really like the Commander mode, and if it were given more rewards that affect the main game (like extra silver, vouchers, etc.) I would play it very frequently.

Maybe.

The match making team imbalance, tank imbalance issues are not as easily solved as creating entirely new games, formats, frankentanks, backgrounds, stories, mechanics, advertising, content,.... wait a minute!

I am pretty new to this game, but my time here has led me to conclude that MM is the core issue of the success or failure of WOT.  All other issues aside, the frequent landslide wins and losses are a drag on the fun factor.  The memorable games are the ones that get to the 3 v 3 and 1 v 1 critical endings where every shot counts.  Those are the games I relish and look forward to the most.

 

I like to win as much as the next guy but getting 4 kills on a 15 to 4 rollover is not memorable.  They lack all of the attention and focus a player needs to win.  They are nothing more than a run and gun and on to the next game.  Your opponent was not up to it and therefor not a good match.

 

The issues with WOT have been discussed and I am certainly not posting any fresh opinion here I admit.  Just my observation that MM really is so central to the game and is something I would hope could be improved upon soon.

Skill based MM. It's the only way. And ranks. Ranks would help a lot.

Skill based MM is one surefire way to ruin the game, as pretty well every way it could be implemented would result in worse MM, longer load times, and potentially even more blow-out losses that would punish skilled players more than average players.

nah. Although with a dwindling player base it might not be a good idea on second thought.
