Great year in Blitz. 

    1) We got rid of sparse parts 

    2) Low tiers got rebalancing    

    3) More Maps, more tanks 

 

For me the best part was finishing my ace chase.

Getting rid of spare parts and replays were the two huge (and positive) changes that I think of.

Getting rid of spare parts was good. Too bad it was needed in 2017 and because of the delay many good players quit.

Quick tournaments. Love em.  Pretty sure that was this year, I’m sure someone will correct me if it wasn’t.

I used to have a picture here but tiny pic took an arrow to the knee....

Spare Parts was a major factor in turning a lot of good players away from the game. That remains a shame.

The Good

Getting rid of Spare Parts

Won My CDC in an event

Our Clan grew stronger

New Maps and old Maps adjusted  to make spawn camping less effective

 

The Bad 

The decimation of Lower tiers including the loss of consumables which ENCOURAGES  seal clubbing, the nerfing of guns and buffing of armor making many tanks useless, and the removal of many teaching tanks like the DW2 and Luchs.

Daytime Vineyards ( no longer unique)

selling too many high tier premiums allowing more players without the necessary experience to drive them to enter high tiers. 

 

Hopefully it will not take Wargaming a year to realize thier mistake with the decimation of lower tiers like it did with spare parts and they will correct it in the new year.

seal clubbing in the duck tank and doing more damage then tier 5's when bottom tier :great: post low tier *rebalancing*

ALL CREDIT TO SpartacusDiablo

Don't play the game anymore. If you see me online, it is most likely someone else playing.

The fact that no one else can get the M3 Lee and opening up a hot one on a kv1 with my nerfed tier 4 and getting the highest damage!
