I agree with you 100%, I’m moving on as well, unfortunately they probably aren’t ever gonna fix what they’ve destroyed, it was a good run and I was on my way to being a true uni but at least I can retire a uniscrub haha

Aside from the game experience being objectively worse: new player experience, tech tree / research, crew experience management, equipment / consumables, HUD, accuracy balancing (KV2 sniper tank)

 

aside from all of that, there are still 77 bugs.

Wow,

 

I can't believe it because this game is owned by Wargaming. As i know, WOT Console has been available for more than 6 years. In the game that is more than 6 years old and owned by Wargaming, we are having a lot of basic issues that you mentioned.

 

There shouldn't be problems about HUD, tech tree, consumables or post battle screen results in 2021. Instead of being anticipated about what they are going to do in the future, we are here, just waiting for these problems to be solved. The article on the website about 2021 is pretty disappointing for me to read. It pretty much states no exciting news.

 

I was hoping to see the double barrelled Russian heavy tanks, more maps, a better matchmaking to make battles more competitive and fun, much more detailed HUD in the battle, much more details about tanks in the garage.

 

To sum up, personally, i was waiting for the new features. Not for those which were deleted and going to be re-added into the game.

This will be my last post on these forums. I've spent enough time and energy expressing my intense dismay and dissatisfaction with 6.0, and I feel it's time I take that time and energy and invest it somewhere else more productive. I've spent more time on the forums in the last month than I have in my prior 6 years combined. To put it plainly, this game - this studio - is just not worth my time or energy anymore. It's been made abundantly and painfully clear that Wargaming has no regard for their players, other than how much money they can squeeze out of them. So without further preamble, here's my final thoughts....

 

.......

 

It's been nearly one month since 6.0 irrevocably changed this game, and to possibly undo the irreparable damage that it's done to this game, the reputation of the studio, and its player base will take years assuming the game is still around that long. Honestly, I'm not entirely sure they can recover from this, but I'm certainly no authority here, and despite my long years of gaming and having seen the outcome of disastrous mismanagement in other games similar to this one (e.g. Trion Worlds with Defiance), Wargaming may yet somehow pull this out of the fire. But I have neither the time nor the inclination to continue supporting this awful game while waiting for any of that to happen, and I'm loathe to endorse a studio for its greed and incompetence with my playtime or my money.

 

Maybe this will be a watershed moment for their studio. Maybe they'll come to finally understand that without their players, they are nothing. Without industry standards such as a fully integrated QA and UAT process in their SDLC, the most well-intentioned development will wreak all manner of havoc in their game and amongst their player base. That understanding their own game, intimately, and their customers, and being fully transparent through open and honest communication about design decisions are foundations for success. That making the game good, or better, will do more for the longevity of the game than any myopic, short-term goals of surreptitious design intended to soak more revenue from their players. And the humility to accept that they, the developers, don't always know what's best for the game. As obvious as some of that sounds, it seems to have eluded them completely, or perhaps intentionally. Yet the cynic in me highly doubts anything will change with this studio until its forced upon them.

 

To the developers at Wargaming who are directly responsible for this unmitigated mess, you are literally your own worst enemy. Your failure to connect with the players, your open and blatant disregard for your customers beyond how much money you can make from them, your unwillingness to solicit and listen to valuable player feedback, your deceptive business practices to obfuscate your design intentions and to ostensibly steal money from your players that they wouldn't have given you otherwise, your inability to truly understand what was working in your own game and what wasn't, and your arrogance and pride that are even now preventing you from accepting accountability for the profoundly terrible mistake you have made here and realizing that your only course forward is to return the game to its 5.0 state and start over, will likely in the end be your studio's undoing.

 

Since you refuse to listen to your players, maybe you'll actually hear them when more of them vote with their wallets and withdraw their financial support from your game. Trust me when I tell you, more will quit and/or stop giving you money in the months to come. The consequences may not present themselves immediately in your next quarterly earnings report, but eventually, the fallout from 6.0 will reach your bottom line. And then, after it's too late to do anything about it, someone will be held accountable in your company as you have some very difficult discussions trying to explain what went wrong and how it got to the point where the console revenue dried up and the game became financially unsustainable. That's what I see happening in your future. I've seen it happen before for other studios that made the exact same mistake you are making right now. At the very least, if you don't learn anything from this, you'll only make the same mistake again down the road, perhaps with update 7.0, if you manage to limp that far. History has a tendency of repeating itself when those lessons are ignored and not learned.

 

That all being said, I want to make a few things clear. I absolutely loved this game, even at its lowest points, and I've spent countless hours and money (more than I'd like to admit) supporting WoTC over the past 6+ years. I've had a lot of good times with my friends in this game. I've had some amazing, crazy fun matches in this game. I've also had quite a few profanity-laced frustrations. I've advocated on these forums for positive changes, such as with matchmaking and balance issues. I've slowly but surely improved as a player over the years from "Average" to "Great" according to WN8, and was nearly at "Unicum" level right before I quit. It's been a long, sometimes hard, but ultimately enjoyable road I have travelled with this game. But that journey has now come to its inexorable end. That unavoidable decision is a consequence of 6.0, which bears no similarity to the game I loved to play in 5.0 and earlier, other than the fact that both versions have tanks in them.

 

I don't wish any ill on the players who continue to play this game for whatever reasons that compel them to do so, whether that's Premium time you don't wish to leave on the table, or Gold you don't wish to leave unspent, or simply because the prospect of having to find a new game to play is just too daunting. But that's where my good will ends. For the vapid fanboys - those who blindly support the game - you do yourself and the game a disservice. It's only through critical and meaningful feedback that positive and productive change can be facilitated - though I'll concede that Wargaming has certainly made it clear that they are uninterested in player feedback. Nevertheless, simply endorsing the changes because you set the bar for quality and value far lower than anyone else doesn't help anyone, not Wargaming, nor your fellow players for whom you indirectly rely on to keep the game alive and solvent. While you're fanaticism is not unique to this game, it is a cancer that eats away at every game on the market.

 

To the rest of my fellow tankers out there in this community, many of whom I've come to respect for your modesty, your sportsmanship, and your skill, I thank each and every one of you for all the good matches you've given me over the years, and even for some of the advice along the way. But I do not think any less of any of you who have suppressed your dedication to this game in the face of the sobering reality that it's not the same game anymore, and it's worse for it in nearly every way. It's unfortunate and sad, but when faced with extreme situations such as this, the only logical, reasonable choice left to most of us is to move on. If you've already done so, you should be commended for your conviction, not vilified for it.

 

For anyone else still on the fence, or for those who are new to the community and either just curious what all the drama is about or who are trying to research the game before you dip your toe into the murky waters of WoTC, I invite you to watch the videos below. The authenticity of the outraged reaction, the abysmal changes that were made to the game for reasons that no one fully comprehends or asked for, and yet nearly everyone hates, all of which continue to ring true nearly a month out from 6.0. For those who find themselves in agreement with the sentiment of the videos and decide to leave the game, maybe one day, we'll meet again on the other side.

Good evening
Good luck "Mournblood" on your future battlefield whatever it will be.
I can understand all of this and see many things that way and also fear your vision.
I also loved playing the game and at the moment only play half as much as it used to be, in principle only the most necessary to help my remaining 50% clan members.
That some are frustrated and players should turn away who have noticed for a long time, I claim that began with the introduction of the season events.
I thought that was a mistake at the time, especially the system that allows you to earn vehicles that can also be bought at the same time,
what is special about it then?
That didn't happen in the first 5 years! If you didn't reach a goal, there was a maximum of 50% discount on it and that was OK.
Everyone knew that and everyone could live with it.
The update 6.0 is the crowning glory!
Just equip and equip 335 tanks with me. 270 teams set new perks. A graphic in the garage and in the game where you can't see anything, wrong colors,
no contrast, everything is much too small for older players like me,
you can no longer see details of the opponent "where does the lower hull end where the upper hull begins where , is the driver hatch etc.

 

Communication in the radial menu, that has always been bad, but everyone has arranged it. suddenly things are missing that you could use before,
why? who changes that? what is the point?
Change of rep. And med. Kids the same question why? The description is not true at all because the little kids say repairs or heals immediately.
what happens if you use it? I tell you: "Nothing" totally ineffective Failure rate 90% or is it the new idea to intervene in the game:
ohh that his win rate is too high Ok then things like that don't work for the rest of the evening?
In any case, I don’t spend a cent more of my Sauer-earned "RL" money until some things change again, if not then I don’t care.
I've been playing online for over 20 years but I've never seen such ignorance towards my own players, sorry
