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.

at the end of the day we have to be honest (and I say this with tears in my heart); WGCB guys are not very "smart", they have always looked more like mules than reasonable and sensible people... if in their arrogance they have decided that the best way for WOT Console is TV and Patch Kits, all the posts against them in the world, all the negative polls, all constructive suggestions and all the prayers possible will have no effect on them... I've been playing since the first month of WOT Console's existence and if I've impressed one thing it's exactly this: they always and only follow their own idea, they are really "obtuse" (rather they delete threads, keep everything secret, remain vague and give no information, deceive players, make false announcements and don't keep their commitments..... all that is necessary for them to do only what they have in their minds, they never contemplate doubt ) ; the difference is that this time they have "done things in a big way" and if with the previous mistakes in the end they always got away with it, this time they really risk to end up like AW, but maybe this worries them less than having to change their mind, even if only for once.....

Posted this in the recap thread...

 

Sounds like a mobile game

 

TV - nobody wants it

COD regen health - even PC backed down from this idea after their community rioted

No arty - an attempt to draw people in.
 

Why do they want to create two games in one? the server pop is already small, and now will be cut in half.

I'd like to see them launch it as a separate game. Then the hard metrics will tell you which is more successful.

 

I really don't get the drivers of WGCB. Wot PC is one of the most successful and long lived games around. Its achieved this by establishing a user base, creating new content to fill the game and keep the grind/sense of achievement going, but by only tweaking the core mechanics, no fundamental shifts. Why can't WotC be the same? Why do WGCB keep needing to try and reinvent it?

We've had:

  • War Stories (removed)
  • Commander mode (removed, added back in, barely played now I would guess)
  • Contracts (removed)

Maybe the idiot developers and their narcissistic leader want to prove that they can do a better game than the original. :(

You have a poor understanding of words and a good imagination.  Quoted post so you can re-read, not imagine.

 

Please point out were I said I believe that they will fix 6.0 and I also never said there would be no problems with new content.  Please point that out as well.

 

 

 

 

 

My bad. I didn't know calling you an optimist was so insulting. My apologies.

So you want 6.0 fixed but have no faith they will fix it, but it doesn't really matter to you and your point then is? 

Basically you will just go along with whatever and give them the benefit of the doubt after all these years. You're correct you aren't an optimist...


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

It's going to be very interesting to see the season pass and Op challenges when this comes out. I don't think I should have to say more to any of you on that....

Especially since nearly everyone has been saying NO True Vision for months. WG should have read the comments on the feed from the last true vision test. 

 

WG is like a husband "listening" to his wife complain. Both WG and the husband "listen" to the complaining by "listening" to only what they want to hear and ignore everything else, then wonder why the complainers are not happy with the results. That is called SELECTIVE HEARING.

Curious, so no leaps in population due to 6.0 for the competition. Suggests that the genre is not attractive to new players anymore. Therefore the only option left is the destruction of the competition

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 still play this game however I have not spent any money on this game since I FOOLISHLY bought premium time in November. I am not going to spend any more of my money on this game, even though I spent quite a bit of money since it came to the 360 in 2014. I will collect the gold, premium time and all the premium tanks WG is giving to keep players. I imagine there are far fewer players spending money and even less money since December 15, 2020.

People, vote with your wallets. Mine is closed since 15th December 2020.

 

And when Nightmare 6.2 drops only play the core/legacy/legendary mode after you believe the new mode sucks.

 

There is nothing we can say to change these plans.

I don’t think there’s enough players to split the game into more modes.

Sounds like an idea for 50K players or more on at any one time. Not the 10K this game has at various times during the day, although it does peak higher than that weekends and events clearly. It could be close to dead before it starts.

What we need is maps, bug fixes, quality of life and balance in core. Not another niche mode barely populated, like commander.

Reserving judgement until actually playing the new mode is the most logical response. Unfortunately, logic is lost on the majority here.  

 

True vision being a part of it has made up many a mind already. Being only a part time player these days I wasn't around during the tests so have no direct knowledge how good or bad it is, though from a theory crafting perspective I have concerns. My problem with the new mode stems from the fact that the existing game still needs attention which I now know it has not been receiving because resources have been devoted or diverted to this.

 

A hyperbolic analogy would be if your house were burning and the fire crew packed up their hoses and left before the flames were extinguished to go get a cat out of a tree.

WoT is a free to play game. At the minimum, WG wants you to populate the server so that paying customers will have someone to play with.  It is safe to say that there are people that don’t care about what the forum feels about the current state of the game and they continue to shell out money. If you really want to inflict “pain” on WG, don’t be play at all.

If they had put 10 old maps back into rotation, continued with balance changes, fixed problems etc I would happily give new mode a try.

 

As none of this has happened I have no intention of trying out new mode.

Having thought about it more my take on the new mode is to get the longer term players spending money again. I can't see a change in era of tanks attracting substantially more new players. When CoD or BF change eras it's popularity is still dependant on how good it plays and is balanced, not what period in time it's set and I doubt there is many players out there that originally played WoT and thought not for me I'll come back when the tanks are modern. Other than some changes like TV it's still the same game underneath.

I disagree with that. Playing while not paying increases cost. A servercluster and network connection that runs hot with non-paying players will cost WGCB more money than a less populated server with paying customers.

 

Keep playing for free will hurt them more in the long term.
