Yup, it's Mercenaries and Downgrade 6.0 all over again. Paingod throws in some keywords to get people hyper about the upcoming change. Mercenaries was disappointing. Downgrade 6.0 was a disaster.

 

So three time could be a charm: will the third set of overhyped promises and expectations break the game?

 

400+ updates between downgrade 6.0 and release 6.1 and the game is still playable... We are still lacking:

- filters on commanders;

- show home tank of commander;

- show nation of commander;

- add commander to tank from the tank itself;

- stats filters not working correct;

- missing most maps;

- matchmaker is still crap;

- tank balance is gone;

- Moe stats are not there;

- Techtrees are a disaster;

- Commander mode sucks;

 

But we get a new game mode. Yippie!!

Era based MM? Where's the cutoff? How the f'ing f of f is the matchmaker going to cope with that. It can't even get team balance right with a larger player pool. And as separate mode? 5 v 5 anyone?


patch kits? True Vision? Wow. I'll pass.

I would move from tanks to planes, but wouldn't want to grind another tank game. I briefly tried boats. I'll wait and see what happens with 6.1. Maybe if its successful we may see the return of some of the much needed 'apex predators', along with new players.

I have yet to find a pastime that provides me with an equal or even similar measure of enjoyment, and capacity for repetition, as WoT did; for nearly all interests of mine, with this one exception, as soon as the novelty begins to fade I am at a loss and thereafter move onto the next. Over an extended period however, this endless change and influx of distinct hobbies becomes quite taxing to continue with, and more relevantly, prevents me from excelling in any of them because of how constantly my attentions are diverted in turn.

I've still got a 1/16th tiger 1 to finish assembling and painting from 2012. I think I'll have a go at the final push on that.

What would've been nice was for them to be truthful, not say we are doing the maps, fixing the bugs and listening to our community which is absolutely [edited]..

Why is it, that WG act like teenagers? They never learn a thing. Always go with the stupid ideas and think it's amazing. I honestly believe that they do not play this game nor even understand this player base. You'd think by now, that they'd get why we play this game, instead of the other two tank games on console. By the way, I ain't even surprised Lol its part of the course with WG console. 

 

They CAN'T !!!! :facepalm:

I'm responsible for what i say, not for what you understand !!!

I still have to take apart a Tamiya 1/16 RC Tiger II and Leopard 1a4 that my dad built when I was a kid,  not 100% sure if they would still run or I would need to do a complete restoration... I may just buy new model rc kits and leave these as display models.

I have been putting off fixing these with so much time spent on WoT...maybe I should quit before I sink more $$ into this game... 


78 Tier X's, All Tech trees & Mercs grinded/in garage!! Need to farm 2+billion to equip all tanks.

NEXT to do: Get a crew, from every country, to Rank 17 with 25 skills. GERMANY done (wait,what??WG deleted them}

GOAL: Have every Tank, ACE Mastery with min MOE1 Tanks in the garage263 GOLD+457 TT=TOTAL: 720

And I was concerned for a moment that this new mode would be something I would actually want to play and so would have less time to do other things. Luckily the information that it’ll have TV means I’ll have NO interest at all in even trying it now. I don’t enjoy twitch shooters anymore and TV just turns the game into one. 

I don’t know how to act my age! I’ve never been this old before!

I guess they're basically saying to established players that, like 6.0, if we don't like TV, we can take it or leave it. I assume they're betting on this new mode attracting new players to the game. It seems they're taking the gamble once again that they can take established players for granted.

 

They can. I would state names of players who said they were done after 6.0, but are now spending money again. ( IB---## ) The mass exit after 6.0 never happened and depending on who you ask. Player base might have increased.  Why would WG worry, most the people on the forum are all talk no action. People will continue to complain,  but will keep playing and spending money. WG knows it and does not worry about it.

I gave them a real hard time, but they've made the game at least somewhat playable again. 

its still a mess, but its better than it used to be...still not spending gold or $, but the core game still exists and is fun, its just buried under layers of nonsense that sometimes you just don't wanna bother with

The fool who still follows the fool who insulted him and his family, even after the fool was found out, is the more foolish.

 

No idea who said it, or when, but it's still very true.
