Indeed, it's been a good year for WoT(except for a few distinctive failures...)

Overall, keep it Up

Bragging about assault mode and inscriptions. Risky stuff.

I also just want to add that some new topics/poll will be added to the forums soon to help gather feedback on some key areas/aspects of the game to help shape things for the future and also help with community interaction and coverage.  Compared to this time last year it's been a very very busy year. Our concurrency numbers (amount of players logged into the game client all at there same time( have constantly gone up with our peak recently being over 217,000 players logged in and playing World of Tanks in EU alone. Our forum traffic and portal traffic has increased greatly during this time also.
It's crazy to think that British tanks for example didn't arrive until November 2012 bringing with it the new physics engine. Looking ahead we have more awesome content to come along with fixing up those things that deserve more focus and attention.

This should give a face-slap to those moaning that the game didn't improved very much over the years.
And as imperiumgraecum stated, except several fails that dissapointed the community, the game really went in the good way.

You should add - added many game breaking unbalanced tanks into the game and refuse to balance them for 5-6 versions straight.

You should also add - each version we release on purpose too OP new tanks just so people can free exp to them ASAP.

Also add stalin.

Greatly is a big word in some cases, but the game got better at some fronts in the past years.
Thanks for updating Swamp, I loved the map from the start and it even got better. Komarin an Serene Coast still feel like campish maps to me.
Edit: This forum is degrading by the day. Even giving your honest opinion gives you a neg-rep.

Focus your attention to improving the mm, please. Also, give players more control over maps to be played on. Example, play only maps in the African theater, western front, city maps etc. etc.

Would really like to see platoons locked to + OR - 1 TIER.
Too many Troll Platoons who match Tier7 with Tier 1 just to piss people off.
Also would like to see a matchmaking mode where platoons of high win rate are matched with similar, and also the same for just singular players.. or maybe games played?
The ultimate would be to match WN7 but I understand the problems that would bring.
Its just a shame that for every one 'fantastic' game I experience, I have to be involved in 20 really rubbish ones, through behaviour such as lemmings, rock hiding base campers, tactical idiots/ trollers (even though have 20k+ games) and AFKers.
Even when playing tier8 arty in a tier6-8 game, I know its going to be over in 5minutes.. not enough time to get 4 decent shots off.
I don't have a solution to these problems, but the fact is that two people who shouldn't be in a team can ruin the whole 15minutes for everyone else.
Can we have a 5v5 mode? maybe smaller maps? 10minute games?
As has been said, let people choose which tank to take to which map.. everyone might turn up in a heavy, but so be it, at least they would have had a choice.
Or how about letting people be able to swap tanks in the 30secs before start? how many times have I turned up with Himmelsdorff in a tier 8 arty?
We really need to be able to let the dedicated, good players be able to play good games, matched with similar skilled people, without being affected by people who haven't a clue.
Just to match make by tiers is ridiculous. its so easy for a 1K player to acquire a tier9 tank but not have the experience to use it.
Needs more thought please, WG

The good things hardly compensate for some epic failures:
- Match Making is still horrible; Players just quit at match start-up screen....
- Multi-Core Support  --- yeah...maybe in 2020...
- nerfes for most of german tanks ; t50 and t50-2 gone; destroyed all arties;
- fps going down exponentialy ;  lag & server failures;
- copy/paste Customer Support;
- no more in Store Offers ....just junk...;
- epic game physics failures like terrain stucks; penetration/dmg values have no meaning anymore....epic bounces and 1 shot kills...;
- zero XP and credits at the end of battles due to server failures;
- ....should I add more?
yet you still keep adding 1000 vehicles .......and 3 maps.....
Thumbs down WG !

Don't agree with everything but indeed, they keep throwing more and more content in the form of vehicles each version... WTF?
Just fix all the problems and fix all the long awaited stuff.

Change the title to 'Reminder for Golden Joystick'. :)

Nice improvements you have done, but you need to listen community more. For example less work on new tanks but give this effort to balancing the game.

Keep it up. :blinky:

Since 8.5 game is getting worse and worse.
- T57 heavy was a mistake to put into the game.
- Ridiculous misses, ricochets, tank-trough shoots, zero damages etc..
- Still 1 and a half core working in my 4 core amd cpu.
- Ingame chat ruined
- Arty ruined, well i like it but most of the players doesnt. I should be just limited and not nerfed that much.
- Autoshoot. We really need this?....
- Matchmaking really should be skill based to avoid 3 minute battles.

- Hidden nerfs.
- Some players are still too [edited]for the game... instant cap on encounter, attacker team camping on assault. They cant understand capping is crap, you dont get exp or credit either. Maybe they need more tutorial videos.
- Physics system still horrible. Sometimes my both tracks contacts with the ground but i cant move.
- The damage from fall is ununderstandable, sometimes i get 800 dmg sometimes 200 when my td's front hits the ground when coming down from a bigger cliff.
- 90% of players still doesnt know how to use their tank, camping heavy who lets meds get hit first, rushing arti. Well they wont be normal players ever so.. you cant do anything with this.

- Camo ruined.I really liked that thing when you were behind a bush and did nothing and it completly covered your tank enemy wasnt able to spot you. Only from 50 meters. But you had too ruin this too. Now enemy can spot me from 130-200 meters behind the bush with full camo + bia + ventillation. Yes.... you are brilliant, now its unable to calmly spot because you can get spotted in every sec in the most ridiculous situations. You made a good game, and you started to ruin it. Idk why is this so good, making everything random, and dont let skilled players prevail. It is enough to have one kamikaze in the enemy and he can spot everyone in the forest because of this new shitty camo system. Wait no, because some tanks have awesome camo...... Yes, the "invisible" td-s. Object268 can shoot me from 100 meter without get spotted..... BRILLIANT!
- And the biggest hit, i read serb doesnt listen to the community, its a big fail.
Looks like Wargaming has got enough money to dont care about the game.
And one more thing i cant understand. You said you wont put arty limit because it wasnt in real wars. And you keep making everything more realistic.
But when someone ask you, why is the Tiger weak(i dont think it is weak), or something(does not matter right now.) you say, "its not a simulator".
WTF!
Keep it up! The game is already annoying! You are not far from the unplayable status!

Japanese tank fans will be pleased to know we have a new Japanese tech tree in development. Initially this will be made up from Light, Medium and Heavy tanks, with even more vehicles to feature later.

Where did I left my glasses? I can't find any heavy tanks on the initial Japanese tech tree.
