Well all, your resident tomato, me, is back. I figure if AW is going to be wot lite, I may as well come back to the original. The "exclusive" Chietan mk 6 was the last straw. If they are going to pull these war gaming tricks I will just stay with WG. So if you want to say I told you so, go ahead.

 

What at else is eating my goat over there?

No server roaming-same as here.

I never had an issue with arty on wot, but I hate the machine gun arty in AW even with a warning.

 

However there are some cool features there that i will miss, such as the base upgrades etc.

 

Ah well back to attempting to achieve a 50% WR in my good old Lowe.

Ah yes welcome back to Wold of terrible specials, horrible balancing decisions and MM that seems to be drunk half the time. I bet you've missed it quite a bit. Just kidding, I like this game really, but some of this stuff is true.

I'am still advertising AW as awesome WoT killer in the battle chat everytime i meet someone who seems to be to stupid to sh.t for WoT or cries cheater when he gets ammoracked or just gets destroyed.

AW is awesome, much better than WoT and has a lot of fresh ideas, just go play it, but don't forget to tell the WoT support to delete your Acc before you leave.

 

Need to install the radial menu mod again and put the AW ad in there.

I had to try it for myself, quit a good while ago after getting to Tier 8.

So many OP/incredibly unbalanced crap pieces (I'm looking at you Chally 1), incredibly bad spotting mechanics. What really made me quit was the high tier MBT HE spam... Absolutely no fun. Oh, and the shot delay, which was so much worse than the ghost shells WoT had at the time. (Part of the reason I took a break from WoT.)

 

I've said it over and over again - AW will have a shorter grave than WoT, the devs are getting very desperate... And I kinda feel sad, because it was such a fun game when I first got in to it.

The teams were also just, for lack of a nicer word, retarded. More so than in WoT. Low tiers were so easy to dominate, you can easily guarantee 80%+ winrate if you platoon.

 

TL;DR - WoT is much better, and will always be. All hail glorious SerB.

Can't you play both?

 

I am really enjoying AW, well low tiers at least (5 max so far). Less annoying RNG, low tier tanks don't play like utter crapas they do in WOT. And AFVs/Recons are such awesome fun. And vision can actually win you games on most maps, unlike WOT.

 

It pisses me off less than WOT does, maybe just new game effect, but it's nice to alternate between AW and WOT so you don't get too burnt out on one.

If AW had no arty I would have played it for longer as I would have been more tolerant towards its issues.

well aw has some serious issues right now.

 

rushing the tier 9 tanks, no balance in high tiers! yes even WG does a better job, bad game mechanics (shot delay), no real innovations, listening to the players no much... the list goes on and is long.

 

no point.

 

AW lookd promising, however they failed (for now) and went down the same path as a lot of other games did and do and most likely will always try to do: rushing content and trying to land the big shot.

 

instead so focusing on quality and a slow but steady groth of the ppopulation they want to win with using sledgehammer tactics. did not work. good luck though!

Wargaming and WoT are in desperate need of a serious competitor to get the boat wargaming and wot are finally turning into the right direction.

I think AW has a few key problems.

 

1. Lots of bugs and issues due to the game being new. Bugs, balancing problems, new content being added too fast and so forth. I mean the game is in beta so this is understandable, but does not really qualify as an upside.

 

2. Lack of heavy tanks. A tank game just isn't the same without. WoT would be pretty boring without them as well.

 

3. Players have already spent lots of time and money on WOT. All the progression would be wasted.

 

4. Artillery. AW had a brilliant opportunity to fix this critical error WG made by never including it in the game. They did. Some believe they fixed it, I am not as convinced.

Welcome back OP,

 

The game has got even better, more infighting, more arty ,more tomatoes.

On a down note, the forum has a new sheriff in town and the troll postings are being clamped down on.....

 

Fav. bit New tanks, new maps, features (like free xp to skills).

a gibby for me as well.

i fail to se, and i played my fair share of AW battles, how aw arty is supposed to be any better than wot arty. yes oneshots do not happen but thats about it. instead i get hit for up to 700 damage (close to 1/3 of my hitpoints in tier 8 every 20 seconds...)

well after all arty of aw is a carbon copy of wot arty with some slight number tweaking. nothing different by any means.

Corrected.

 

Sad thing is, low tier AW is actually great fun. It is WoT, but then improved. But once AW goes into the terrotory where it adds things, balance is just skewed totally.

WoT by the makers of AW would probably be a great game.

Instead we are stuck with a good game with serious issues with WG adding more issues than solving; and a potentially great game that is just turning out to be bad.
