WG, please stop with that! One tank every three months ok, but this is madness, this is SPARTAAA! This is a tank game, not ReVolt, yolos are everywhere - lights, mediums, fast heavies - driving ahead like crazies. Today is a complete disaster, never saw such mindless tier 10 yoloing. I hope we will get better bushes after 360 support died, because I want some strategy, some skills, not to be chased all over the map by is7, t95e6 in my light tank from the first minute. Guys, take Your pills and start playing wiser :D

I think Long Haul is more of a cause than the Op.

 

Posted Edited as was too aggressive (Sorry OP), Shouldn't have posted it :)

I don't mind the free tanks, but I lack the time to play them all.

Then skip the Op? Don't forget Long Haul is still on.

 

I think the OP is suggesting that the ops are ruining game play.

I like the free tanks since many of them are actually really good. Keeps the game interesting.

Apologies OP, looking back it sounded aggressive. What i meant was that Long Haul has been running for weeks and that always promotes poor gameplay. What i posted was wrong :)

For what it's worth it didn't read as aggressive, just poorly worded. I see now you understood what the OP was getting at :great:

I’m very happy and motivated with all these free tanks but yeah, player(s) and match quality has become very unpleasant now.

Horrible matches just thrown away in a few minutes.

While I realize I cant earn them all heck I could barely keep up last year with all of them tbh its really nice that they have been so generous with the free tanks especially with them all being high tier tanks that you can earn just by playing the game. How easy they are to get depends on performance of course but at least its not some ridiculous lottery system.

Seriously considering buying the Valour just because I'll never make 800,000XP due to my real ability to play the game that much

If tier 10ers are yoloing, then bushes, killing the 360, etc, won't save you. That's just the type of players in that tier, and they won't change.

 

Yoloing is usually a symptom of the Long Haul disease. That's what needs treating, not earnable premium tanks. Earnable tanks actually improve the game by evening things up for newer, or less wealthy, players. A player's skill level then has a better chance of showing through. Which should help raise the overall level of play.

I think this is a temporary situation, commercially speaking it is a very good strategy to keep the maximum number of players while waiting for the cross games, new maps and updates that will appear when the xbox 360 is removed of the games. From that point on, it won't be necessary to be as generous as a gift to players to keep them and attract new players.

I use Google translator for english language

Lots of juggling in french text, sometimes translator in trouble with that. If you do not understand what I write, tell me.

At which point they'll realise they should have kept the 360 players around. And so will the 360 haters.

Remember the start of the year when we had to grind for one tank over three months and people complained? I think the sudden spike in free tanks is kind of compensating for that start to the year. Along with the free tanks being earned I'd like the trade in program to be useful again so we can get rid of premiums we earn but don't need. 

 

As far as yolo games, that happens with long haul more than xp ops or seasons like Valor. Hopefully long haul ends so we can get back to some sense of normalcy without people rushing in like idiots because they need to get 150 wins in a week for two chests that may or may not be worth more than a couple dollars.

360 players aren't the majority at this point, and the console is holding us back. Maps, bushes on maps, game modes, and certain features aren't available because of the 15 year old system. The Xbox One has been cut in price so much so 360 users are running out of excuses.

You are free to not play and you’ll not get any free premiums. Problem solved. :hiding:
