Google "Jumping the Shark" -- unless you've heard of that.

 

The image above is showing "The Fonz", a character from a popular TV comedy "Happy Days"  jumping a shark on water skies.

 

The term "Jumping the Shark" has now been used to indicate desperation.  In the image above, the OP is trying to say that the new halloween tanks are the "shark" and WG is "Fonzy" -  suggesting the OP believes that WG has gotten too far away from it's roots or has reached a stage of desperation.

 

 

This was not posted for you - I just wanted you to be sure that "others" will understand better now.

 

Peace-

Boris

 

Edit -- Here's the Youtube video of Fonzy jumping the shark.

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.

Only Fonzy could water ski in a leather jacket (and not get it wet).

Aaaaaaayyyyyy!

Unifying TRIARII factors:

1.How much money we've spent on this game (not to mention the new parking garage required for all of our M 60's)

2. The amount of alcohol consumed while playing tanks. 

3. How much fun we have with, and at the expense of, each other

The term is generally used to indicate that the franchise.. be it a game, movie, or TV series has reached the end of its glory days, and is making a last.. desperate grasp for popularity before sinking into obscurity and oblivion.

 

In Hollywood, one of the WORST insults you can give a fellow working on a series is to say that his series has "jumped the shark"

 

"NO! HOW DARE YOU!.. YOU TAKE THAT BACK!.. NO..NOOOOO!!.. Say it ain't SOOOO!"

 

 

As for me.. I don't think WOT has "jumped that shark' at all.. I believe there is lots to play with, and lots to do still. I"m having fun. And don't mind the goofy tanks. They just make me smile.

Eh, as long as the fantasy tanks are balanced, I don't have a problem with them. But I also hate it if there are too many fantasy tanks.

"I will club you".                                                                                           "HAX!"

With TIMERS WG let us jump the shark then cut the rope and watched as we crashed into the sharks and laughed as the water boiled with our blood.
