I don't think they can undo the changes.  How are they going to give everyone their crew skills back?  Especially as people are playing with the new system today.  

 

I'm starting to think this update was meant to rid the game of it's longtime players.  We have too much built up in this game.  Perhaps the only way to get large amounts of new players coming in with their new money is to remove the highly skilled older players from the game.  The skills changes were designed to keep long time players from having super crews that were far better than what new players would have.  They basically admitted that on the Russian site.  But now I wonder if they want us higher performing older players to quit in order to give new, fresh money a chance at the game.  

 

Who knows.  I think they could have just made crew XP requirements lower so new players could catch up.  Simple solution, but one that means they get less money I guess.  


Bye Bye Forum.  It was fun while it lasted.

It's sad but it's true. I recently (last week or so) just reinstalled the game to see where things were with the current game after i had removed it about a year or so ago (whenever they had starting to work on 'balance' ) , only to find out that a new update (one of which was said to be a large change to the game) was going to come out soon. I was expecting it to be a disaster (in my opinion) as the game has yet to inspire my confidence in the team/decision makers running it.

 

To be expected, my feelings/thoughts were true.

 

And to those of you who say "I just wont give them money", you fail. Because by still giving them your attention/player-base. You are allowing the whales who agree or don't care about the direction of the game to pay for you. The only way to counteract this is to stop playing, causing the whales to get tired of the 'long wait time' for matches and move on themselves. Furthermore you stop WG from going to their parent company/others looking for partnerships by saying "Look how many active users we still have".

 

Stop buying into a game completely if you don't like it. Otherwise the cycle will just continue.

i haven’t played more than 10 battles since the season passes were introduced, after reading these threads i still ain’t coming back. *tinfoil time* maybe this is their plan so they can pull the plug on the game without upsetting too many players who still play

Pssst. I know who you are. Hail Sithis

My solo YT will cover various games maybe even some WoT

My other YT, a joint channel with a friend will mostly cover GTA stuff with a few other games here and there.

I am joining the strike

I played three games and gave up... was lost, then realised all my skilled crews had none until I selected them 9, couldn’t see my damage or health or even what I was shooting at... slowly figured some out but it just felt awful so very sadly I gave up my session and not sure if or when I will play next. I was going to buy a pass and looking forward to Xmas blast but if I’m going to learn a new game may as well try something else I guess

 

Im gutted

Skill cap for commanders is a good thing. Whats a point to have all skills applied? Players supposed to pick ones they actually need. It's all for variety. Moreover, overskilled crews are stupid OP and make a huge gap between new players and veterans. If you are truly veterans, you can win with no bonuses. Don't hold to your OP crews, but actually learn to play the game and enjoy a process as it's supposed to be played - smart way but using OP things.

Bring us 60fps to all consoles or make 30fps to all other way. Not fair to battle against 60fps, especially on light and mediums. Stop playing before that happens.

This was the biggest update in wot. Of course there were going to be problems.  It happens with everybody.  When Sony and Microsoft push out new things there are glitches as well. Give it a week or so to fix them or make changes. 

This update is so bad that I can't even tell what details are glitches and what details are supposed to be that way.

I’m on strike. Not playing until it changes back. If this is the end so be it.

 

this man has expressed it beautifully, I agree completely, and anyone who loves World of Tanks will take the same stand.

 

The current game is not World of Tanks, it is knockoff armored warfare, it looks, feels, and plays like garbage.

If you are not playing until they change it back, you might as well move on. You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube.

 


REMEMBER-It's just a game.

I'm pretty flexible and can deal with nerfs and changes.  The way the game played though...no thanks.  I briefly played and uninstalled armored warfare for a reason.  The way the game plays now just doesn't interest me.

 

On top of that I think it is easier to confuse and kill new players now.  TV made it where experienced players were able to crush new players more, this is that but turbo charged.  Hell the one game I played took me 30 seconds the figure out how spotting enemy tanks was working.  Being able to totally lose sight of or be unspotted as soon as LOS is blocked...lol.  Experienced players still know where tanks are and where they will be.  If Vets are having to dedicate extra brain power to maintaining the flow of battle how the hell are new or bad players supposed to?

Excited about this update.  With any luck, if all the good players stop playing I might just have a chance at being decent at this game.  The rise of the greens is upon us.

I have played one game and hated it so dropping this game for now, actually feel quite sad about what’s been done to the game.

Be careful what you wish for.  I adapted quickly and just do not care for how the game is playing.  Poor players, already frustrated by normal game play, will be more frustrated with the changes.
