Glad to check in on things and see stuff still declining. 

 

Nice to see K***e hitting up people's posts spewing toxic sludge everywhere...

 

awesome to see sub 5k battle punks fist fighting over who's got the better 3rd grade level come back on a forum...

 

I'm just sitting here watching. Not sure what to do or say really.


Win, lose, or draw - I'm gonna make it hurt.

It seems many are playing far fewer games, I'm playing a small fraction of what I did prior to 3.8 and then only in a few credit-positive tanks. I suspect this will be the impetus for many to step away from the game. And for the record, for me at least; it's not really about money.  I've gladly forked over many thousands during my tenure in Blitz (as have you Xim) and would have happily continued to do so... It's about respect.

 

The changes in 3.8 are not about furthering the game (in fact they do just the opposite.)  They are purely intended to generate additional profits with total disregard to the player base (paying customers.) 

 

Perhaps the phrase "Killing the golden goose" doesn't translate well to Russian.

OOF, because when the top 2% of the players leave it means all of blitz is ending! Silly goose

I would love for Wargaming to succeed, and I will push for success until I'm gone or Blitz is.

Really, really bad move. They need to rethink it.

Yeah prior to 3.8 even I started spending cash, but after update 3.8 not a penny more out of my wallet until they make things how they were.

 What about the golden goose? Are we supposed to massage it?  We supposed to take it to dinner? 

 

No, I think they say to kill it. 

 

Are you certain?

 

pretty sure.

 

ok, then we kill it! We will kill it well!

 It has been incredibly frustrating watching post 3.8. I honestly really like the game. I think we all do. But, after the introduction of timers, and  theft of our credits, it just isn't worth it anymore. I keep hoping someone at  wargaming will get enough sense to fire some people and revert, but it has, at this point become totally unlikely.

You really can feel it unwinding.  Fewer people, many of the traditional forum folks gone, my clan has become a ghost town ... 

 

... and it would be so easy to fix.  You really have to shake your head.

I love it...

Defending a greedy treasonous buttwipe, while complaining about Wargaming sticking them up the butt and charging for looking into your garage...  

Wargaming are fantastic capitalists, you should be proud.

You can't have your cake and eat it too.

 

Oh I seeeeee... It's okay to screw the other guys, just not you... :D

Well, they're not going to get much if any money from me anymore. Maybe a small gold buy to top up what I need to get the IS-5. 

 

Thier loss. Big dumb old farts like me who like to sell tanks, buy them back, rinse and repeat. Free XP all modules, gold crews to 100%, etc etc..... What's the point now? Any new tank has to be equipped.... And I'm not waiting for a timer, nor do I want to grind these stupid spare parts. The whole idea was ridiculous and whoever thought of it should be fired and simultaneously pee'd on by the entire player base (unless he/she is into that sort of thing, then another punishment may be in order).

Yeah ..... spare parts are IDIOTIC.  Let me buy them.  It is mundane to have to grind through in complete boredom to upgrade the tanks.  I have NO INCENTIVE to follow new lines now because the path to upgrade is A BORING GRIND. Better fix.  Im sitting on a bunch of cash and as of right now it's not going to be spent on blitz.  Really really sad.  Spare parts grind is ruining the game

Pretty bold (Arrogant) comment.  I'll be your Huckleberry and gladly take your wager  :) Ready to compare net worth? (C note to the winner?) ... LOL what a MORONIC statement from a 48% "christmas lights" player...http://wotbstars.com...&geo=NA&lng=eng At least the clan name is correct :)

They are busy comparing net worth and tanking skills to elivate their social standing in the group. That will allow them to advocate for their political surrogate, which they take as proof of the righteousness of their own value system. 

 

Dont bother to try and evaluate the actual logic of their arguments but step back and view the arguments for what they are.
