Hey all,

looking for true assessments on state of the game. I have been away for 148 days according to wot stars and plan to re-enter for what I hope to be a good Halloween op. I quit the day before modern dropped, I have no interest in ma. I stuck through the 6.0 debacle and although I was/am pissed about that it’s in the past. The game just got way to stale and boring a la… maps, teams, ops, season passes etc…

 

So sell me what has improved? Thanks in advance

It appears some veteran players are returning.  Thats always nice...

If you don't know, ask someone who does.

They have slowly been fixing some of the stuff they broke with 6.0 in the menus and HUD.  WWII is much the same; some larger maps have been added but overall the map rotation is mostly small corridor maps.  There have been some balance changes at high tier, mostly armor buffs for super heavies and armored TDs.  More are on the way. 

 

 I haven't really played Cold War.  It looks like people are complaining about unbalanced teams as new tank lines are introduced ("OMG there are 20 lights on each team RN!")

Quite a bit has improved and/or changed since you played last actually. Most of the remaining issues with 6.0 have been fixed or at least addressed, such as the PBRS having most of its previous stats available again, crews being made easier to move between tanks, damage and pen RNG being changed to even numbers (+/-20%) instead of acting as a global damage nerf/pen buff, more tank stats being visible in game, and so on. There have been a few new equipment pieces added with the most notable two being "speed equipment" which improves a tank's top speed by 5% and 10% (along with some minor traverse speed and horsepower improvements). We've had four new "Cold War" maps that are also available in tier IX and X of the normal game along with three-four other returning maps and even more returning maps coming out later this month. And of course there have been some other additions as well, like new tanks and tank lines, quite a few balance patches for different tanks, and of course a whole bunch of additions to the new Cold War mode (which I actually enjoy now personally despite not caring at all about it when it first released). ​

 

There are still problems with the game of course, but overall it's significantly better than it was after 6.0 and seems to be steadily improving. It's also worth mentioning that there's another major update coming later this month, so there's a good chance of even more notable improvements being made then as well.

If you need Silver, CW is great for farming it, especially if you have no interest in CW.

Play say 10 games, be mega aggressive, do damage ASAP, die and repeat.

Easy money, then load WWll and go shopping, or play Tier 10.

Everything that FusionStar has said and having played for a couple of weeks now, it’s actually not bad!

Still things to fix but most of them are on the ‘to do’ list. 
Looking forward to Halloween mode hopefully they’ll put out some decent skins to earn/buy and Halloween themed commanders?

Slow but steady improvement over the last 8 months. More maps being added fairly regularly, more players playing over the last 2-3 months. I took 2 months out, for the same reasons that you state, and felt refreshed when I returned.

 

(Sorry OP forgot to add your opening post that I was responding to).

Everything is still bad and is not going to be good either. If you didn't played 148 days I think you should not go back. But if you are curious why not try it maybe you will like this new game.

CW co-op is really good for silver.  A good match in co-op gets 60-80k in one of the earned premium tanks.  Well over 100k for a great match. Add a silver boost and you get even more.

 

You can just take it easy in co-op and earn a lot of silver
