    Wheeled Light Tanks/ AFVs

    Ultimate tier 10 suicide scouts. Just what we needed in this game.
  2. The lovely feeling when a three man platoon tries to team-kill me from the start of the game for spotting the other side of the map, and I still end up top xp, and they fail to kill me.

  3. Did you ever work for a big company? The guys actually doing the work like balancing, MM and such, are probably 3-4 level below the managers, who make the calls. If some information is misinterpreted/misrepresented on any of those levels, then they will make a bad decision. This can happen quite often. I can make a possible scenario easily just to illustrate what I mean. Lets say someone made a case study right after the introduction of the 3-5-7 asking 1000 players if they like it or not. Lets say based on their answers one could conclude they like this MM if they are top tiers, and bad players like it more. The manager stored the information in his mind: "The majority of the players like the new MM." A year later on a meeting Data guy (joined the company 2 years ago): "Guys we are losing players since the introduction of the new MM". Manager: "No that can not be. There was a study that showed the players like the new MM. It is because of something else." Senior data guy (6 years in the company): "It is because of those pesky unicums. They ruin the game for the rest. Lets release a high skill floor tank. That always increased both the income and the number of active players." Data guy: "That is not a solution, and it will have a bad effect on the long run." Senior data guy: "You weren't there in the past x years. It worked every time." Manager: "That is it then, gj Senior data guy for figuring this out." Higher level meeting: Manager: "We lose players, because of the unicums. We have to introduce a high skill floor tank." Bigger manager: "Good idea, but we also should make base camping spots on the maps and discontinue WGL to fight this unicum culture." Manager: "That's it then I will give out the tasks." And kids that is how big companies work. I am not even joking.
  4. Am I getting crazy or did they ninja buff the dmg of the clickers. I don't think the tier 9s dealt 600 dmg with splash on 430Us

      Paranoia is definitely on the table. :look:

      I’ve found the 430U to be surprisingly susceptible to arty as well. Same “balancing” technique they used on the S. Conq... cause it worked so well there?

      I get 550+ rolls these days regardless of tank-type. Got killed in an sconq by a tier IX m53 on prokhorovka by 5 shots or so. Wonderful things. Permastun is just as bad as getting oneshotted. Unbelieveable amount of bots returned to play this game, I usually don't check other player's stats one-by-one but I had so many "interesting" battles that I had to. Basically I found out that in one day of a time (in a 2 hour long sesh) I had 7 bot (300<wn8) players on my allied team and every battle is a lost one because the enemy had 4 500wn8 players. All of these guys have 20k+ battles with 45%-47% wr and at least 2 arties played for 3-4k battles/.

      The game is just dying, it could be a wonderful game but its slowly turning to trash.. Probably I will make a second account and will have some fun in a t67 but nothing more...

    WG can't possibly dumb down the game sufficiently for this people to achieve something. They weren't afk.

      Naaah I just talked to a 53% wr player (not padded) who claimed he had to camp in his t30 because "gold pens" and "weak armor" (even on turret) and "Stock gun can't pen anything" so I'm not surprised.

    I give up... (after 8 years)

    I think regardless of the details how the changes are actually happened, there is a clear underlying philosophical change at WG that happened 3-4 years ago. It really boils down to this I think: Old days, I call it Serb-era: Equal opportunity can be summarized in two (actual) quotes from him: - Skill MM: “There will be no skill MM. If you improve your skill, you will have the right to pwn” - Q: “Will you introduce high penetrating premium tanks?” A: “How about a ‘pwn everyone’ button?” Currently: Equal outcome Oh, you are too dumb to understand the game mechanics? You can't use the keyboard and the mouse at the same time? You hate when you get penned? Worry not we at WG got your back comrade. Hop-in in your bobject and you will find a hull down with bushes right at your base and to not get bored you are granted to have shots on 2/3 of the map. We want every player to have fun!

    powercreep went over the roof when they decided the solution of the games problem is to buff the heavies, remove weak spots etc.

    I have 2 weeks of premium, 900 gold and 5 million credits left, and probably that's it for me. The reasons are the same as everyone else's, so instead of writing the same things down I will just leave this here: Number of players per week EU: RU: NA: TL;DR: Server pops are all time lows and even the Russians hate the recent changes
  9. I would pay a fuck ton of money to WG as a player, if they would just un-fuck the game to a point where I can play one hour straight without getting angry.

      No comrade, but you can pay them more to fuck you further and harder. Don't forget about this option.

    Steam Summer Sale 2018 June 21-July 6

    Any good VR game to pick up for vive?
  11. Did they change something about the arty damage in the last patches? I was deleted from half hp a couple of times.

    1. Hellsfog

      Hellsfog

      No. Arty is now properly balanced.

    2. kariverson

      kariverson

      Dude yeah. I've been thinking the same. I don't remember t10 arties to still be able to do 650-700dmg hits after the rebalance. 

    3. Haswell

      Haswell

      You got balanced. :serb:

  12. There was no direct nerf if I remember correctly. It was proxy nerfed by power creep and map changes.
  13. I tried to play randoms after playing frontline yesterday. It was fucking frustrating. I tried to grind the tier 7 spagetti tank. I had 75% WR over 24 battles, but I still hated every single moments of it. No amount of WR or Dmg will make me like the game anymore in it's current trash form. The maps and the MM are so fucking miserable in randoms, that I won't be able to play this game after the event is over. It fixes two out of three issues with the game (maps and mm) and also a lot of the frustrating things are not a big issue with the respawn. The sad part is for a second I thought WG did something nice here until I learned it's not their work. It makes sense now.,,
  14. WG looking at the numbers of the EU server:

      To be fair a large percentage of that is probably people who cant run the game any more on their potatos

    Rating the Premium Tanks (Tiers 5 through 8)

    First of all this is a rather old thread and it was last updated in february. On the other hand I am also not a fun of the patriot, but it is clear that I am underperforming in it. I simply don't like pew-pew guns with bad handling. I would also like to call it trash - since I don't like it - but objectively it is not.
