Aw come on guys it's not that bad.  The playerbase sucks but I still have fun.  It's a challenge to get a win right now, and I like challenges.

 

I got a Helsing and a Goose with my collector tank gold, I'm totally happy about that.  But in the process they made tiers 1-4 suck so much new guys must hate it, and you gotta have some new players stick with it long enough to get good.  They're going to have to revamp that mess to insure Blitz's future.  But I think the end is a long time away, and if it's sooner something else will come along that's just as fun.

I’m not saying the game isn’t still fun.  I’m over my 3.hate, and I still enjoy playing, although I don’t take it seriously any more.  All I am saying is that I see the writing on the wall.  It has been a good run, but I expect the decline to continue.

Flamm, actually you can sell some of those low tier gift tanks for quite a bit of gold (a bit under a thousand each if I remember right).

 

I literally bought the T-34-2 and Rudy with the gold I got from selling mostly low tier premiums.

 

I took a look at the hanger and it looks like tanks are only giving 25-100 gold for being sold (unless they were premiums, and then the price is several hundred). Did you mean 1,000 total gold for the tanks you sold? Because it looks like I'd only make 500ish gold from selling the collectible tanks which I could care less about. Anyone else have any input on this?

Some are missingnthe value, but there are several 500 and a few 1000 and 1500 gold ones.

Tech trees generally go for 25-100-ish gold. The few tier 5-6-7 collector tanks go for up to 100-1k(?) for the kv-13. The only real cash in option is to sell the former premium tanks that got changed to collector status.

I may have a few too many tanks. I think I was over 150 in garage by last count.

Ships is a lot slower than Tanks for sure, but I'm willing to trade some of the fast-paced action of Tanks for an actually reasonable and fun game experience. I think Ships will definitely grow on me in time, especially as Tanks seems to be floundering.

 

 

So instead of giving the EU server and others a better policy regarding tickets, they just jipped ours? Thanks Wargaming.

 

i go on boats from time to time but it's still like day 1, all the ships drive towards the others and the ones who focus fires the best wins. 

i don't see the skill level. 

Having said that 5.5 made grinding to top tiers even faster so you get tier 10 tank games like that too. it used to be bad but it's worse now.

That's where you can take advantage of having just a little bit more skill than everyone else and angling/using the right shell types/etc. to get the slight jump on the other team and pull off an easy win. Even better is if you platoon with someone. All and all, it's not much different than Tanks in terms of the skill of players, but Ships players at least have the excuse of the game being somewhat new and there not being a huge amount of guides and online content for Ships.

So I’ve tried the French cruisers and am at tier 3.  I’ve discovered that  COD fleet is dead.  I’ve sent requests to CSPUD and III, but the chat feature sucks, and I can’t tell them who I am.  You got a fleet suggestion?

If you start the process to sell the individual collector tanks (without actually completing the sell process), it displays the amount you’ll receive for whichever tank you have selected. That’s how I was able to determine what I would be compensated for when I was making that decision and if it would actually be worth doing.

 

Also, just before they made this change, they gave everyone a heads up what they were going to do. This gave everyone the opportunity to go back and repurchase some tanks (with credits or the singular exception option) that they wanted to hold on to, for actual collector purposes.

 

Hope this helps!

I haven't yet joined a fleet (even though I'm up to Tier VI), so I have no idea what some good fleets are. I figure I might start one at some point, but I'm not sure.

 

Do you know if there is a WoWB Forum or similar community?

There was a forum but it died and was shuttered in record time iirc.

The reason the game is dying is there less and less reason to know even how to play the game so the game is a shallow shell of what it used to be. 

 

Contrary to what I see many people say, I’d rather have a game full of great players then a game full of noobs.   

 

I don’t get the guys that enjoy beating up on people you already know you should easily beat up.  I mean is that really the quality of competition you want to face.    I know I hate that because I don’t gain anything by playing weak competition.  I learn best facing the best players as possible.

That's not the challenge blitz gives us anymore.  It's not about beating better players.  It's about finding ways to get your team of nubs to beat the other team of nubs.  

 

Finding quality players in public matches has gotten weird.  I had a battle the other day that eventually came down to a 1 vs 1, the green guy was a one shot, the red was full health, and the green guy danced around him, used cover very effectively, just barely evaded the reds shots, and made it look like a ballet.  I thought "here's a superuni to teach us plebes how to do it" and I look at his stats after, 47%.  The day before yesterday I had another match with just the worst team, on canyon, I took my jackson to the sniper spot farthest in the back.  The rest of the team camped up behind me.  Heavies, meds, lights, all camped behind the my TD which itself is camped in a position meant to be 3rd line.  Of course we got demolished.  Post battle I look at my team and 5 of them were 50% +.  None of it means anything anymore, you gotta make your team work.  What I should have done there is back out of my spot and flank around the hill, try to get some greens to come with.

One tank per year? What ever happened to three tickets per year with as many on each ticket as you'd like?

 

 

As I understand it;

It's one exception request per year, but you can request multiple tanks, within that exception.

So if you're going to use an exception, try to request as many tanks as you can, during that one exception request.

So I could, in theory, request all of my collector tanks back, provided I had enough garage slots and credits? Hmmm...

Nope ... one premium tank per year.
