    I give up... (after 8 years)

    Hello all, After 8 years of wot, i give up. I started playing wot during the closed beta in augustus 2010 (so almost 8 years ago) and while i was often mad, the core of the game was so good, that all the small things WG did for the good or bad didnt change that much. The overall direction the game was goiing was also good so slowly the game grew more and more on me. This was the game i always wanted: tanks fighting tanks, without all the other lame ass crap** (except arty, arty was, is and will always be c****r) All i wanted (and did) was bashing random bobs in randoms while platooning with stronk pleyers. Hence i have been in 322 / 247/ FAME / 322 for 6 years, not for worthless cw trash, but for stronk plutons. Over the years WG showed the amazing abibility to: Make the worst maps in gaming history and despite rewoking some 4 times (cough *komarin* cough) still failing in making them playable Too retarded to fix the elephant in the room that killed the game as a whole (arty) Total lack of foresight when adding things you cant undo (tier 10 TDs and later on arty and light tanks) Toss in the fact the only person in the whole company with both common sense and real power was siderailed (our lord and saviour ) And the game never mananged to live up to its full potential. OP tanks were originaly always nerfhammered, to keep the average the average, and most ridiculous forum suggestion where ignored, and when they didnt ignore it, like gold ammo for credits, it lead to a shit show, which ofc took a year to fix (m4 sherman with 150 pen and 350 dmg anyone? etc etc etc. However despite all of it, the game roughly stayed the same: The real problems, gold ammo and arty got ignored OP tanks dont get fixed fast small all round improvements Yet, the past 2 years, it started to change. the core strengths of the game got slowly ditched: The menus / garage where updated, making it a cluster fuck of chaos, instead of a clear easy to read menu for missions (which the game always had!), the menu became worthless, i simply stopped following missions, too much work / clutter Historical accuracy got ditched, leading to fantasy tanks and bs armour models new OP tanks dont get nerfed, insead old models got buffed, leading to powercreep Due to the above, all tanks slowly become the same, they all got dpm and gun depression buffs, all tanks started losing weakspots The real changes, which would have totally revived the game, sandbox, never happened, while heavy tanks got better, they did it by buffing them, not by nerfing what makes them crap in the first place (gold ammo!! and arty) Toss in the awefull map reworks, and a physics patch which makes driving TDs a pain and the game went for me downhill fast and as cherry on the top, still tons of arty to ruin your game. The game is now back to square 1: camp 2 win, and you try? you die! It was fun the all the time i lasted, i think i never played a game longer as i played this one, but the game simply turned to shit because WG was unwilling to remove arty in 2012 and reduce dmg of gold ammo 20% in 2013. And now the player numbers slowly start to fall, ``forcing`` WG to milk the playerbase for as long as they can, ruining the game entirely (see all the new russian super tanks) I always said the only company capable of killing wot is WG, and for me they succeeded, after playing daily/ weekly from august 2010 till jan 2018, having 6 years of non stop prem account and playing more as 50.0000 games during those years, WG managed to make me basically quit. (i do have enough credits to keep playing for ever, but i probably wont even bother) Imo its a shame WG fucked the game up so hard, but so be it, i still got 6 months of prem left, so gonna play a bit. ps: perhaps the gold ammo changes + inevitable rebalance that will follow 3 months later will magically improve everything, but i somehow doubt that, ever since Serb left, WG never had the balls to really change something, they always backpeddled like coward weaklings... Wotlabs is also almost dead, so thats why i made a topic GehakteMolen, the biggest arty hater to ever play ps: something that always bothered me: unlike all the wannabe arty haters, my arty hate knows no limits** there are only 2 players who hate it as much as i do, everybody else i just pretending to hate arty. I never defend(ed) arty from scouts rushing in nor protect them in anyway way or shape, and the only reason i dont mass tk them is due to the ban system, anyone who helps arty win a game is a traitor for the good cause: trying to ruin the game for arty. All arty deserves is curses and friendly fire, they are the scrouge of this game and the reason everything is the way it is (open maps not working , heavy tanks badly balanced, TDs they way they are and so on and on). I also never platooned with arty (for 2 players i made and exception) and never told them gg or anything other positive (i thinkg, perhaps i made a mistake) what i always did do was report them for unfair play, untill WG disabled that feature, due to unicums getting falsly reported aswell.

    Knowing you guys, I wasn't sure whether to put this in "name and shame" or "name and praise." On my team last night in a ranked battle was TeamSizedBackpackUSA from Mahou. We were both playing CGCs. He counterbatteried both enemy artilleries, teamkilled me, then charged into the enemy to commit suicide. He then texted that he "killed every arty" and "did God's work." Because of his jihad/God's work, two hull-down IS-7s that we could have dug out won the battle for the red team. BTW, he had 3 marks on his CGC, so I think that he has the same attitude towards God's work as Jimmy Swaggart and Jerry Lee Lewis: there can be no great redemption without great sin.

    WoTlabs still the thing?

    Everything game mechanic-wise has already been discussed to death already and the only new mechanics introduced in the last couple of years were the swedish siege mode (basically forces your to bush wank), the arty stun (a different kind of annoying as fuck compared to the previous version) and the Italian autoreloader (or whatever it is called)(just a more flexible autoloader). Discussions about maps boil down to "Here are your 3 corridors! Pick this one if you got armor, pick this one if your are a bush wanker or pick this one if you want to die quickly!". Discussions about new tanks usually boil either down to "Tank X basically is Tank Y but with 10mm more frontal armor and .1 seconds better aiming time!" or "Press W, left click red tanks, win".

    (First off, someone give me my PP back kthx ) When it comes to winning and your damage output you can easily increase one at the cost of another, at least on a small level. Just playing more passive one game in a hundred is a full percentage in difference. It's all about mindset really. What you should focus on is understanding the maps and how the game flows in them. Try to predict the outcome of something that will likely happen later based on the information you have right now, make a judgement call and base what you're going to do next on that. This is a very good way to try and be at the right places at the right time, and making habit out of it. Just by looking at your sig I'm just guessing that you're pretty decent at your tanks and how to handle them, but lack in the information aspect. Do you ever analyze anything you come across in the games you play and how it will affect the rest of it? If not then that's where I think you should start. Getting a tuned aim and nice micromanaging skills will help you as well but that's a considerably easier feature to acquire. Ultimately wanting to do the right thing, knowing what the right thing is and possess the skills to execute it is how you're going to start singlehandedly winning games. That said just being on the road there to understand game flow should easily put you in the 55-60 area of winrate. And don't bother with WN8 too much, the metric is sort of broken right now and maximising damage outputs and maximising wins are two different things, and focusing on winning will eventually result in learning the other anyway. Play the metagame, the game should play just as much in your head as it does on your screen

    The return of Garbad?

    Yes. Please let him come back so that his extremely out of the loop ass can pretend to tell us something about a game that has nothing left to be explained with an ego larger than the US's military budget.

    Nope, kitten fucked with the metric (with my wholehearted approval) because some people are BAD and get what APPEAR to be good results from it. Somehow I doubt daki or mailland care to much about this update. I'm not sure where you got the idea that anyone is truly responsible for it's care, it's a volunteer position that pays only in shit sandwiches and headaches. Anyone who uses it is being well cared for, those who misused it are being fucked with RIGHT NOW. Good on ya about work in the applied math sector though, it's a good solid field. I think if you do well to try to deepen your appreciation for the tenuous relationship between numbers and the realities they attempt to describe, because fundamentally that's what's gone wrong with you (plural, general) and WN8

    What's more disgusting is your sub 55% WR. Maybe you should lay off padding and actually try to, you know, win those games? All those numbers say is that you're a padded teal who's pretending to be a good player.

    So I just finished grinding the m46, my recents went from 3300 to 2850 Apparently 100% marking the m46 and 3500 damage is barely uni wn8, good meme But for real, please lower it just a tiny bit, maybe so that 3500 is like barely super uni? I'd be happy with that.

    3 MoE and the 4k barrier

    Since my name has been mentioned I'll post some random things here that come to my mind. First off I'm gonna answer these specific questions though: - Work more on not getting shot at. Don't push first, hiding behind teammates etc. If a map doesn't have a specific spot to farm damage from a distance (take for instance Sacred Valley or Hidden Village) you wanna be in the main brawl areas taking occasional shots without taking damage back. Most of the enemy team's health will be concentrated there, usually it's heavies that can be outmanoeuvred and you'll have teammates as meatshields. That way you can slowly gobble up damage and once you have a decisive advantage use your health to bully stuff and farm hard in the cleanup phase. - Don't be reluctant with gold. The above point means you'll shoot heavy targets a lot. Just straight up load it if you expect to face something big, no need in bouncing the first two shots just because you're cheap. - I run optics on all my meds but not on the heavies (vents on E5 and GLD on IS-7). They help with marks for sure but the main reason is that I have the feeling that optics give me such a large advantage in certain great damage farming places (ridges on sand river assault, karelia assault, erlenberg assault, prokh middle for instance) it outweighs the vent buffs. random stuff: - mods in this game are useless if you aim to improve. It's just visual gimmicks and you don't need a single one of them while most actually hold you back. - find some twitch shooter to sharpen your aim. You don't want to take ages to lead fast moving targets. For me it's CSDM. You'll see how WoT will slow down for you. - Play with balls. Just cause you took a JagdE100 hit once or twice in the north brawl corner of Sacred Valley (its just a good example) doesn't mean that's gonna happen all the time. Next time be there again and just don't get hit, bad luck happens. - Don't give a fuck about arty. Unless they're platooned or there's like 3 of them ignore them until they're on your dick. If you're too afraid of one-shots that's gonna cost you a lot damage. - Session management was really important to me. If you have one or two bad games in the tank you wanna go for it immediately quit, don't give tilt a chance.When I play M60 for instance and I'm below 3k damage twice I'm done with it and play something else. I tilt too hard to play through it. If I could always follow through on all of this I'd be a way better player, too. Nobody's perfect. So gl with your endeavours
