BTW: if anyone wants to see how far the game has progressed -despite all the claims of haters who say WG never fixes anything- go look at Uni’s YouTube page and look all the way back at his first vid. Classic meat and potatoes Blitz five months after it was introduced. 

 

oh man that brings back memories

I disagree. WG should have better nurtured their hardcore base. They should have followed the 80/20 principle.  
 

Each temporary burst of new blood is a sugar high & and is junk energy that is bad for the body. Catering to newbs over a mature player base requires an endless chase and marketing spend for another hit of short term players. They should have treated this as a player’s serious hobby and not some kind of mobile game for kids with a short-term profit motive. 

 

Sure, but you forget that the people who take the game seriously are a small minority of the playerbase. Even though its a very well built game, in that it has a massive amount of tanks you can research, an infinite amount of different battle scenarios, etc; most players still treat it like a mobile game they play while taking a dump. 

 

And who is Wargaming going to really cater to logically? A small minority that pays slightly more and regularly per player, or a massive playerbase that will play for 6 months and dump 80 bucks into the game? Doesn't take a genius to figure that one out, and hence why the game has catered to the short term players. 

 

We're lucky to have some new players step up and take the place of veterans in the community, and do good things. But even if the active people on this forum pledged never to play another battle again or make another purchase, it would a small scrape in the body of WG's profit.

How about continuing to lurk and post on forums for said games despite knowing full well it's unproductive?  Think there'a a topical cream or ointment we can apply?

Oh yeah, and how're the WG staff now? I miss CC Sly and his antics lol

WG staff has pretty much abandoned the forums for the new girl in town, the Official Servertm. There is only one WG staffer around anymore, and he only posts the update/event announcement stuff. Almost all suppressing of the First Amendment moderating is player-run.
