As above, plus for me, I feel that the outcome of the decisions made in game produce results along the lines you would expect, without the trolling results cooked up via RNG.

 

 

Yes, 10% is a lot lot different than 25%. RNG plays a very minimum role in AW - for the most part it's not even "felt" and that's how it should be.

 

Just gonna add something up that forgot mentioning: the only thing I "dislike" in AW is the scale on the battle's interface. Now I understand why in WOT there isn't much proportion between tanks and every other object part of the scenery. That's actual beneficial for the game-play and AW should perhaps copy it. Do you know when in WOT you park a tank next to a house and both objects are almost the same size? Doesn't make much sense of course but it's better than in AW. Because in AW everyting is in proportion the tanks look too small. Even 250m or 300m away is often hard to clearly see the enemy tank. That's so far the only drawback I see in the game. All else seems clearly on the right track.

AW... well someone may like it I don't way too much mess out there. Or just my roots in WoT are too strong...

WoT for Siemka Klanu Temaplu, and I play Rocket League around it. Tried AW but can't be bothered with another tonk game just for the sake of it.

 

Amusingly my complaints about being matched with utter muppets are still true there, but there is very little RNG so I feel like the result is more a reflection of my abilities (or lack thereof).

Tried it. Too much stuff left to polish and tweak about the gane in terms of balance and mechanics and im not the kind of person to be willing to spend my time being a test subject. Thats why i also left WoWS for now.

   You compare an Beta version game with an very old running game .. is it fair ?? That game is still in development .. and , in my opinion is very close to WOT and in some areas is much better ... first .. you have the PVE , where you can learn your tank .. you can upgrade it .. i do not knowthere , bu here the premium + auto aim + WG help + RNG help .. have an immense WN 8 and a lot of shells just pop up from them or just fly through , i see that few times

   i saw many times that if Wg want you to loose a battle , well RNG start to work very hard .. and you have a lot of miss and the other team .. no miss at all no matter how they shoot , they always hit the target ... and the arty sattelite view .. pls ... what is this AW ?? and the tanks here are moving so fast like they have modern tank engines .. scout tank moving with 70 in desert or forest ... pls ... is more Sci Fi then AW .. 

   and those who defend WOT .. pls spare me with your mockery ...

Don't care about either game just now, but I'll probably play more WoT than AW in the near future, not playing WoWs or WT either at the moment, so I'm all about Equality :)

Playing AW for PVE (in platoons) and WoT for chatting in the garage and some solo action (only been playing my T20). Sold off just about all of my tanks/prems in WoT and use the money to buy some old favourites back, i play4fun now. Not going to spend any more money on either game and will let my WoT prem time run out. Even play some WoWS occasionally, i find that game very relaxing.

Thing is: the more people leave for AW - the better both products will be.

 

AW - bcs they might get higher revenue to continue development further

WoT - bcs of competition

 

Now that AW in in Open Beta - everyone should try it.

I've been playing AW since early access 1 and I have to say it's not as good! the maps are to cluttered,the spotting mechanics needs work and tank balance is a major issue. Oh and the mm is in retard mode! Still the arty seems to be much less annoying and its in beta still so it will be slowly sorted out but I have to say wot plays a lot better. They have pve however which is great for unstocking your tank but pvp is way to broken to play atm

Don't have the time to play as much WOT as I would like, so I am not going to even try AW. I have invested too much time and money in WOT, so as long as there are always people in chat to toon and laugh with then I don't see the point in playing another game.

I am happy with where I am in WOT, I have unlocked many of the tanks I want, I have a good variety of decent tanks and crews, I am still learning how not to be a noob and although it does have its faults, I still look forward to powering up the PC and hitting the WOT button. Until that changes, or everyone else goes then I guess I will be sticking with it.

If people are staying with WoT out of 'loyalty' then I seriously question their sanity and ability to rationalise. I once had loyalty toward WG but found myself alone in the hope of them improving a few glaring issues that have been in the game for years, and since it was mostly a one-sided relationship with WG I've learned that the only person that can make me happy is me. I play games where I have the most fun, and by no means does it mean I have to stick with one title, I can play whatever grabs fancy, from company of heroes, fishing planet, AW, WoWs, various Star Wars titles, etc. It's how I feel at that particular point in time. The only game I truly don't feel like returning to is WoT, but maybe that'll change over time.

 

The beauty of competition is it gives us choice and we should relish in that. If players are really enjoying WoT then let them; if some find their kicks come more from playing AW or anything else, then so be it.

I'm sticking with WoT. I only really have time for one online game  and since I struggle to enjoy the grind in WoT I very much doubt that I'll do so in a game which is so very similar but of much less interest to me. I can't even find the time or enthusiasm to play and grind WoWS and that did interest me right from the off.

I tried AW for about a week, as I had premium time & premium tank from Stress test. For a couple of first days I was thrilled, but now I don't really know why I should play. PVE missions were fun but are too repetitive. They also have an annoying habit of spawning enemy tanks out of thin air, even right next to you and then consecutively shooting a round at your butt before you can time to even turn. They also seem to spawn at exactly same spots, so you can really farm damage if you know exactly where and when.

 

I must admit that my personal performance in that game is so awful that it isn't encouraging. In the first couple of days I was somewhere near the middle in PVP and PVE battles, but now I find myself last or second last. So I was outskilled pretty quickly. And I don't need two tank games where I do poorly, so I will be playing AW less.

Trying to raise my battle count in WOT so just don't have the time to play another fairly similar title. I have downloaded the open beta and had one battle, was a tier 1 against mainly tier 3s.... blimey! Tank felt clunky and handled like a wardrobe. Overall the experience was somewhat unpleasant and unsettling. It usually takes me months to get into a new game, but those first impressions are all important. First time I played WOT I played it for ages straight out the box, it just sort of felt 'comfortable'.

Many will probably stick with WoT.

 

Not because WoT is better mind you, but because it's more comfortable, they got used to it for years.

 

Switching would mean leaving some old friends behind, it would mean getting used to a different metagame and having to learn everything anew, it would mean starting from 0.

 

Does not mean WoT is better, just that it was here first.

That's a good point on the 'grind'. Even with me playing WoWS more I'm finding the grind tedious so have decided to stick to tier 5 to 7 as my target across all lines and hopefully never progress to tier 8 and beyond as a goal. It'll happen when it happens and for once in my miserable gaming existence I've dropped worrying about stats and actually having quite a bit of fun. It does becomes monotonous quite quickly, so extended gaming sessions are a no go, but at least they're adding night battles and a bit more variety soon.
