There is no denying that WG has displayed some pretty bad business practices in the past. I often see a lot of players mourning the good old days wishing we could go back; and for what? So we can have less tanks and less fruitful gameplay? 

 

 There are a quite a few tanks that has changed the way we fight our battles; for better or for worse. (looking at you, 183.) Good. This is a good thing, this makes our gameplay less repetitive and boring. One of the reasons I took a lengthy break some updates ago was because of the same stale repetitive gameplay for thousands and thousands of battles. I'm much looking forward to seeing how autoreloaders will effect our gameplay.

 

 I wanted to post this thread because I've been seeing noticably more and more doom and gloom threads since I took a break. Thanks for reading, happy tanking... And o7.

  Nobody complained about 183s before the medium nerf.

 

 Nothing in your OP has anything to do with why blitz is going downhill. It’s going downhill because of the lack of skill in the players and they balance and then neuter every tank that can be played dynamically.

 

  Catering to the unskilled and removing fun by butchering the tanks the skilled guys like to play makes the game boring. It has removed the fun out of it and driven away scads of players that were far better than the players we have now. 

 

  This thing is just idiots who trade themselves to death while trying to complete their missions so they can get free stuff compared to what it once was. It used to be every game fun packed and close with steam rolls being a rarity. That’s because the proportion of good players to bad ones was larger. Now it’s just bad players everywhere with no clue who don’t care whether they win or lose. 

 

  It’s like everything else, skrubs ruin everything cool eventually.

I'm absolutely stunned how many 39-44% players ive seen on teams in the last few months.  Its just staggering.  If I was that bad at something, i'd do something else.  Apparently tens of thousands disagree.

For every nuetered tank, a new one will be added/buffed to take its place.

as an average player: I agreed with this. The low tier nerf has made the problem worse. Players have always climbed up above their skill range too fast (me included), but now there are no skills learned below tier 5. Just lemming train up the tiers. Fun game but wg suspect in their decision making.


Positive Vibes: The only way I got to keep them Tigers busy is to LET THEM SHOOT HOLES IN ME!  To a New Yorker like (me), a hero is some type of weird sandwich, not some nut who takes on three Tigers.

I do not think Blitz is going down hill.  I feel like since I know more about the game now than I did as a noob I notice all the little problems a lot more, I notice the noobs a lot more.  But it's still an awesome game, while the playerbase has changed I think [based on zero research] that the numbers of players is the same, it's still multiplayer tank battles, and I can still enjoy it without spending money.

Global wise not. But NA and Asia are not looking good. I remember there were over 10K players during EXP grind event. Maybe long term mission with good reward(like PC OBJ 279e mission) will bring veterans back?

I could not possibly hate the player base at this game more than I already do.   Raging, seething hatred, that no known words can describe.   May every moron I encounter in this miserable piece of cr#p game rot in hell for all eternity.

You are not alone. 

 

The worse is that nobody accepts responsibility. If I ask someone, "why did you split from the team?", or "why did you yolo-die in 20 seconds?", the answer will be some bull sh it ... ... ... but it will never be a simple "sorry man, I didn't play well in that battle". It is amazing that the idiots have no idea that they are not playing well, even when they die in 20 seconds with zero damage...

I'd imagine that it could bring back some people, at least for a little while, but that doesn't solve the underlying issue of the playerbase.

 

Think about what the most popular topic to rant about is. Teams and MM. While MM may not be rigged despite so many people's warrantless claims, there is still the fundamental problem of morons loading up the queue. I don't remember Blitz when it started. I played a couple thousand games then stopped until about a year ago when I got really addicted again. I can't, therefore, say anything legitimate with regard to how "good" the teams are now vs back then. What I can do is observe that tons of people, myself included, are probably at risk of busting a capillary because of the stupidity of our so-called teammates.

 

I try to block out my irritation and just exit to garage then find the next battle, but it's hard sometimes. It might be even harder for others to swallow that pill.

If I get a DM from someone asking why I yoloed or died in a particularly terrible way, my first move is to check their battle results and then their stats. If they're fine and I was in the wrong, I'm big enough to admit that. We all have bad games. 

 

If, however, it's a 40% little guttersnipe who did nothing productive, I'll fire right back.

That is why I say if your win rate is down play your worst tank. Lowes win rate. Or tanks you haven't seen in a min. Players are like what tank is that. Change it up. I win in one I go to another tank. TD are for those who sit on the jobber. You 60% thank us 40% who spot for you. And thank you for your support win<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<, we spot for you.
