I've been having bad and good teams mostly bad, recently ratings (is an abomination) or pubs (is meh or one sided) but the thing is why the bad teams. like how does a company even fix that or try and prevent it, I've seen a lot of people quit the game because of either new infux of nubbish players or longtime veterans who just started playing after a few years being off. Like it's really having me question the fact wargaming isn't doing great and the thing with them making cheaper tier 8 premiums or anything else that's cheap. It's really frustrating and I hope they change their meta about how they run this game. Because (they are in my opinion) I think they are going towards the newer player base than the veteran player base, like I'm about done with this game if this keeps up.

Yess! Correct. Teams can be bad and they can also be good.

If you play well and did your part, there is little else you can do

Relish in what you can learn to improve gameplay

Crying about it never felt good to me and will get no love in the forum

Can you even talk without using the word "like"?

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.

Like, you should go, you know, like do a search for the other 150 threads like have asked the exact same question since oh, Jan 2015.  Because it's been dying since then apparently.

One day can be good in ratings, and the next is ridiculous.  
 

One way WG could fix this is to take rating battle requirements out of the daily missions.  I have to believe that is how many end up there.

the answer is no,

Not at all.

I will also give you a bad news: many many players (especially veterans) are enjoying the game and even improving their stats (obviously not daily but in the mid term) and all the aspects of their game play.

The game is not perfect: I would change several things. But find me a mobile game with zero issues and WOTB is still one of the best game I have experienced.

 

All of us from time to time get a bad day but mostly we realize that you are talking about stuff you can't control (WOTB sales strategy): deal with it.

Remember WOTB is here to make money.

If you don't want to deal with it and don't enjoy the game  then quit.

Plenty of game.

Besides basically you already did it: you play less than 2 battles a day.

 

NB: you will hear some veteran (few compared to the number of players of WOTB) doing the same rant.

They should quit as well.

This game is much more better than before (maps, graphics, maps, modality etc etc)

Bad players will always exist.

The only news is that now you can find more of them in high tiers.

Welcome to the forums! 

 

To answer your question; no, the game is not dying. In fact its probably growing since WG supported Nintendo Switch.

Watch some early Buska.  Those maps, those graphics, the lack of information, etc.  

 

It's so much better in so many ways ...

WG's could give a root-toot-toot about player quality; as a bonafide business, it's priority is player quantity, and they can still milk a few more years of that

I know the particular time I get on there there's about 18-25 people in the ratings queue so the games are played with 1200+ pt. spread in the individual team ratings.  When there's more people it seemed better but just depends on your timing. YMMV.

When a game company still pushes out updates and releases new content on a regular basis, the game is not dying.  When the majority of the players you see have less than 2k battles, that means new players are still flooding in.

Teams, teams, teams....we need better teams WG, make it happen!  The teams are made up of random people from random places, and those people aren't good enough!  Tutorials might help some, but what you really need to do, WG, is to make people better.  Improve public education, instill a sense of personal responsibility in the general population, decrease apathy, teach kids the basics of logical thinking from a young age, these are just a few ideas.  The point is, WG, it's really time for you to get off your lazy butt and do something about how dumb, lazy, and irresponsible people are, because that's the only thing that will actually make people better players overall.  

 

TL/DR: Crying about the playerbase is really just crying about the sad state of our population, and it helps just as much as crying has ever helped anything else.  Which is none, in case that's hard to follow.  Crying about stuff has never helped anything.


 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

No game is far from dying. But I am curious, how long this game will last. Not that I want it to end though, I love it.
RNG is rigged !
