To be quite frank, I am still fuming about what WarGaming did in 5.5. I miss the derp guns and the variety that was in tiers five and below. Now t's the complete opposite of that, it's boring and painful to grind the new lines because you see the same tanks over and over and over again with the same guns.                                                                    Let me be clear, Wargaming removed HALF the content in the game, and if they think that a new line will in any way shape or form remedy that.. they can shove that up their BUM.

That's why they jacked up tiers 1-5.  They are all little tanks.  You wouldn't want to try to put a Maus in your bum.

There's a reason why a big chunk of the community said NO to this update. And I'm still butt hurt about 5.5 because I miss the fun times where I could one shot the noobs with my T82. Now it's just tiers 7-10 that keep me going and with the bland lower tiers, the newbs don't have any incentive to stay down those tiers. Tiers 7-10 nowadays is all about who can use the noobs on their team the best, I'm kinda happy and not happy about this at the same time. Sure, I've been getting 3k damage E100 games like every other game or so and it raises my stats in it significantly but it's just not fun going to the post game stats and seeing the fact that you did more than half your team's total damage. It's like having to do everything; dealing damage is your tank destroyer's job while holding the front is the heavy tank's job, and I had to do BOTH. It's fun having high stats and all but I just wish I could go back to low tiers and have fun without the pressure of having to do super unicum levels of play especially when I'm just an average player.

I have 11k WN8 and 2.5k WN7 on my Leichtraktor (Nano_Virus of the DAMGE clan). Not sure if I should be proud of this...

The only things I hated about 3.8 was the fact that I could no longer have both vents and gun rammer in my T-34 medium and also the removal of spall liner. I use Spall Liner on my cruiser and it was fun ramming other tanks in it as well as finishing them off with your 2 round burst autoloader. And with Vents+Gun Rammer (Gun Rammer used to have -10% reload time) my T-34 could have a 2.7 second reload with 90 alpha. That equates to 2,000 dpm which is quite a lot for tier 5 if you ask me.

They both stank in terms of making the game more interesting/exciting.  

 

There were some great tier 3 - 5 trainer tanks that were very instrumental in training the masses.

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Lots of things come to mind ...

 

Economy changes, M60, 3.8 equipment and spare parts + timers, medium nerfs, low tier tech tree simplification, more fake tanks, loot boxes, collector tanks, gambling events, 5.5,  ...

There's a story about somebody visiting a 95 year old woman who was a child during the Civil War... she was rocking on the porch of her home complaining about how she could never forgive the Union, because since the Yankees kicked in the cellar door, she couldn't keep the pigs out of it to this very day.

 

mmm.  pork.

in fairness, you were only one of his targets. However, what did you like about 5.5? And please tell me it’s simply not that you don’t play low tier and it doesn’t matter to you. I rarely play low tiers but they were at least interesting on occasion, you could grind new lines and enjoy.  And I came up after you but I learned a lot in low tiers: don’t get derped, auto loaders, angles, side scraping, etc.

I would much rather prefer 3.8 over 5.5, because i would rather prefer a lack in equipment vs a lack of tanks.

3.8 Indeed.

5.5 the only negative thing is that new player learn even less than before.

The tank roles don't exist because....well they are almost the same.

I'm playing some tier 3 and 5 (and before some tier 4) to rehabilitate few tanks stats and I can tell you those tiers are so boring now (pretty sure nobody can say I'm seal clubbing since those tanks are some of the worse now. LOL).

The players instantly adapted with the new meta: just sitting back. Does this remind you something you see in the higher tiers ? 

Sure they eliminated seal clubbers but the cost we are paying is that nubs just skip the lower tiers as fast as they can.

If you add to that the premium tank policy you get what we see every day.

Amen
