With this new mode potentially splitting an already low playerbase, will this reduce the chance of +1-1 becoming permanent? 
will it become impossible for the matchmaker to arrive at 15 v 15 matches with lower numbers than now? Just wondering, any ideas from the esteemed forum fellows?

Most are worried if WG has the resources to work on both games. But hey, I hear we're getting the maps back, some time in the spring/summer 2025.

Looking forward to the changes. Game is getting stale as it is. The tanks are all running a similar trend now. So why not try a new path.

Game is stale because we've had the same tiny handful of maps for months now.

the game is also stale because of the skills that turn every tank into a sniping tank. I haven't seen so many Russian heavies sniping sinds downgrade 6.0 dropped.

After mines I turned off and went to do taxes. That was a far more enjoyable experience.

Thats your opinion, my opinion is that the game is stale because the only tanks coming out seem to be on a single path.

faster higher alpha or dpm better armour. The ww2 era and korean war tanks are getting repetitive. Premium tanks are mostly reskins with a thrown in auto loader. How many is3 variants are tger. Same with centurions? 
 

so for me , i think a new era could be good.

A 15 v 15 match is not mandatory, very early in the morning I've experienced many 7 v 7 matches. So not a problem.

If they could do this why can they not return the color scheme, scaling, saturation & mechanics of pre-6.0 as a mode or as a separate buyable game with minimal updates or micro-transaction & any new content as DLC's? PAIN please answer this one...Thanks.

I just finished a tier VIII game in my Pz. V Wojtek. Great game, I hope +1 will never be permanent.

Good for you, I personally don't care either way but I'm thinking about the "new" players that WG seem hell bent on attracting. How long will the attraction last when getting constantly stomped while - 2?

If the player base gets split WG will have to do something to keep them spending!

OK but the majority don't play outside the "normal" times. I play really odd times due to my work patterns but I have very few 7 v 7 matches!

+1–1 should never be permanent

Ridiculous band aid by a development team of WOT that lost the plot on their own MM and tank balance a long time ago and then [edited]ed themselves even further by the crew and equipment changes in 6.0

It does not matter what anyone thinks about +1-1, if WG thinks that it will keep the players spending then they will implement it. If it makes them money no amount of foot stamping or teeth gnashing will stop the relentless pursuit of the dollar!

Oj, the shiny new players! For 6 years we all played - 2/+2 but now - 1/+1 becomes mandatory for the game. I'll say it again - - 1/+1 is boring, the gameplay suffers badly, it doesn't help make you better player etc. Hope - 1/+1 will be forever an event and nothing more.

If WGA were serious about the “new player experience” then they wouldn’t let them jump in a T10 game from the get-go. It was bad enough before but at least the earn ops required some effort, and at least they topped out at T8. Now, T10s are instantly available to them.

New players get no tutorial. They get no nursery mode. They’re introduced to tiers that include massively OP tanks crewed by massively OP Commanders. Everything is geared towards making them pay to compete, whether it be encouraging them to buy tanks, encouraging them to buy keycards to get tanks or Commanders, or encouraging them to buy silver to buy Commanders, equipment etc.

The only time WGA considers new players is when they strategise getting more $$$s out of them.

I aim to misbehave

When I started on pc it was +/-3 was the norm for most tanks. Prammo was gold only. You know what I said when they changed it? "Bad change, I have tough, you have tough!". Well maybe I didn't and realised that the change was for the better in the long run.
