I uninstalled two years ago and never looked back.

It's like quitting smoking, dreadful at first but you end up way happier not having to deal with its problems.

I stopped playing 6 months ago... I think, something like that. When I stopped I still had over 250 days premium time left. I thought it would hurt, that feeling like I am wasting money but it actually didn't I was so happy to be rid of this shitty game. WG are in end of life mode with this game.Squeezing every cent out of it while it is still a thing. Even the glorious Russian fan base is starting to move to (believe it or not) games like PUBG. I don't blame WG I would be doing the same thing if I owned this game. When I realised that fact it made quitting easier. I really don't want to be part of the decline of anything let alone a shitty online tank simulation.

Look at twitch, even games like hearthstone destroy wot with viewership. Even QB is streaming other games more and more. Whether you like QB or not and I don't really like his style but think he is an ok guy. Anyway whether you like him or not he was always the biggest streamer of wot and now he is trying to diversify. I have watched pubg streamers get to 1000 concurrent viewers in a month yet wot streamers like mountain man are happy to get 300 viewers after years of streaming. The WOT reddit sub has only 35k subscribers after 5 years or so, the PUBG sub has 300k after 6 months (if that). The game is a dying beast and that is all there is to it. 

It was mostly fun for the first 2 years I played it but the last year it was just disheartening watching WG make one shitty move after another. Like I said I don't blame WG. The goose that is laying those golden eggs is a granny now, so they need to get as much for the eggs as possible before the granny dies.

One wonders whether their decisions have accelerated the down turn.

And yeah, quite a few of the content people are diversifying. Jingles and Dez having another crack at war thunder. PUBG showing up more often. If ever WG needed a better indicator of what people want it's the people who are trying to make a buck out of content that provide a fine indicator.

The game peaked for me about 2 years ago in terms of enjoyment. Been in decline since and have been playing various other games instead of WoT.

For sure it has but I bet even the guys who own WOT are probably sick of it. They like the money but sick of the community or more importantly sick of trying to second guess what the community will get the shits with.

Incidentally I saw QB streaming pubg the other day. I think PUBG is the death of nearly all other genres of game. I am old by gaming standards and I love pubg more than I ever liked WOT. PUBG still lets me get excitement but I can take it at a slower pace. I was top 100 at OCE 3pp for a while when trying hard but eventually got sick of it and started dropping school and pochinki for the fun. I am closer to 50 than I am to 40 (years old) and if I can get top 100 then pubg is a game that lets even older people (WOT's traditionally big spending portion of the userbase) move away from this shitty tank sim.

It would be interesting to see if WG will at any point admit to accelerating decline of the game. I do wonder how they evaluate the state of the product - players playing? cash earned? e sports popularity (lol)? No doubt the project will be financially profitable for years to come. The difference is who is playing and paying for your product - dedicated hard core playerbase or neverending stream of tomatoes.
