This is awesome. 

 

It requires active play as opposed to just invisible  sniping in camo for the big guns.

 

And scouting is harder but MUCH more fun than before.  The changes in spotting make scouting require more effort and closer range but also makes it valuable. At the same time the changes in spotting make active scouting much more viable. 

 

This is far and away the best the game has ever been.

You might like this game called War Thunder.  It’s free to play and is designed from scratch to use the kind of vision system WoT is trying to shoehorn in the game.

Not it isn't.

Not true, camping next to cover and shooting anyone who dares to move through open areas.

Scouting is much easier, you can see if anyone is there in front of you and don't get surprised out in the open.

You're just beating up casuals who haven't quite picked up on the changes. True vision is game ruining in its current form.

Don't assume, he has a 20% survival rating. Probably doesn't understand the normal system well enough.

It tends to be these types of ppl who say they like it. 

 

Just like the people you see celebrating when the better players say they are leaving. Those tend to be low-skill players who think that means they will suddenly look like good players.

I feel sorry for the heavy tanks I'm picking apart beyond spotting distance.  Easy farming for those that know how to take advantage of the system.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

That doesnt even make sense. In other thread people claiming its the high skill players that like it.

 

In truth its players who enjoy an active playstyle who like it and players who like to rely on invisible hate it. 

 

And Im actually an average player statistically. Especially since I play with an organized group.

Finally WOT's got camo paint,camo net,and camo skills working correctly instead of being cosmetic features!!!!! Could work on muffled shot skill but i will take this . At least scouts aren't just active now ,they r true spotters. Td's now can be true snipers.  To those thar r pissed you now just cant run over everyone  u actually have to use your brain  and think so good luck with that otherwise u wouldn't care.

I like the mechanic as well. But I can also see why some folks get very emotional about it. Can’t please everyone all the time :(

Welcome to the forums. Where you can call people stupid, just don't call them passive-aggressive.

If they keep it just like it is now, I won't mind.

Quite the opposite, you don't even have to think anymore. You go hulldown and snipe. Hide behind foliage and snipe. Poke out of cover and snipe.

 

Whatever camo you think you have isn't worth a damn on a 4k TV.

 

It's call of duty with tanks now.

I totally agree ...I'm loving TV also !!

The need to move far from base is almost nonexistent now , and the uninformed and newer players that don't understand how TV works now is amazing !

I'd like to thank wargaming for actually making a true skill gap between the good players and the casuals ! We have needed this gap for years !!!!!
