I sense desperation on the part of WG. The 3.8 switcharoo, the insane cost hikes, the shuffeling of Premiums, collectors and the TT. And the mood in the forums, (mine included). "Its not fun anymore" seems to be the predominant theme.

 

Im really not feeling very optimistic about the future of this game right now. More like a feeling like a porcelain throne vortex. Cant bring myself to invest anything whatsoever at this point.

 

It is a good game, but to put it nicely, management seems lacking.

  If I could get a game where 4 guys decided not to play for the 1st half it would be different. That isn’t the case though, there are 4 guys who aren’t even playing every game. They just sit in one spot and only play after the others do the dirty work or are forced to engage a tank that runs into their sight picture. 

 

  Wonder why the luster is worn off? Because no one plays their tank to it’s role. You have to depend on mediums and lights for spots that play third line behind the heavies every game. When you play your [edited] off in a light or a medium and get spots without being spotted no one comes to engage or is anywhere near the correct position to be in to prosecute a target. 

 

  The whole game is an exercise in futility every match. Get did of those 4 guys or give me the means to win it on my own without themlile it used to be. Otherwise it’ll only get worse.

Sometimes I wonder if matches would be better with less tankers per bout. Lets say maybe 4 per team as opposed to 7.

 That would; A) reduce time spent waiting in queue. B) have less team reliance and allow players more control over their own fate.

Thoughts?

Dear Lord, no. Fewer players means AFK or nuubs have a bigger impact. I should have thought that bigger teams on bigger maps with longer queue times would be better. But just my 2c.

Bigger teams also severely lessens the impact you would have on a battle, and given the fact that the population of bad players is so high, it would only result in your WR dropping. Kind of like in PC, where your contributions to the battle are only a tiny part in securing a win.

Hmm, I disagree. If a guy can carry some, then I think that nub's would be less significant. Right now even the best players are getting routed because of reliance on team mates (that suck). If there are only 4 reds to kill, the hill isnt as steep to climb.

  It already is. I won a platoon game today where we had 2 afks at Desert Dands. They spawned in the dunes moved a few feet and then were ghosts for the duration. 

 

  The reds all hid inside the buildings not even in the brawling slot. I baited them out one at time and ended up dying with only 1 red tank left alive and my guys just getting around in the flank. They managed to pull off the 3 on 1 for the win, barely.

So, we're gonna call a move that happened in early 2017 a harkening to the death of Blitz? Really dude? At least have some originality.

The game is not going anywhere. Case in point, the last auction we had, some of the most expensive tanks got sold in big numbers and quickly. 320 Mk6's in less than 30 mins. More than 1,000 sold in less than an hour. You add up the numbers, those are pretty good sales.  Interest is still high.

ehhh...

 

not quite. Server population is still alive and kicking, and the devs are still throwing out new stuff like tanks and maps.


The E-25, skill ceiling so high it's in the next tier (basically, it's OP when used to its max. potential)

Just another demo account, nothing to see here

You think those are afk, but in reality their bots. Placed in game by war gaming to make enough players for a match.

Maybe you havent noticed, but a huge portion of the current forum threads are people expressing dissatisfaction with the game. It's not just me.

A big portion of the forum consists of about .01% of the player base.  They may be the best players, but regardless...

And then of the hundreds of forumers, about 5-10 are making posts about the game dying, many of which have roughly 10 forum posts total.
