I ask this as i checked the players online this morning at 10am GMT ..and it was 32k EU2 and 70ish k overall on the 2 eu servers?...I thought it was a bit odd ..

 

 

..So i just checked now and the game has 37k EU1 and 94k overall?...Now i would expect to see more at those times as i have in the past but was quite suprised by this as its the weekend..

 

 

..The thing is for those that were not here then,many moons ago there was just EU1..and it got so populated with 120-130k players that they had to introduce a new server due to lag etc..so they

opened EU2 to compensate..then there was mabye 200k overall online at peak times over the weekend..But not now?

 

 

 

Tbh i uninstalled the other day but i thought id give it another go as i still like the total concept of this game and its gameplay..but i just wish the devs would stop being so greedy and money oriented..

but hey-ho one can wish eh?..

 

 

..Im stuck between a rock and a hard place whether to bother anymore with this game as i re-installed today...is there a voice of reason out there that can put some sense into what i am seeing??

 

 

...Is this game worth the investment in my time and inevitably my money (Cos they fu%*ed up tier 8 and 10 with over-buffs)??...or is it a case of a clean break is needed?

 

 

 

...Like i said ''Rock and a hard place''

If you like to play it - play it. If not...well, don't 

I do like to play it so i do. I have never even thought about player base - unless it is going down to much as like in US servers

It's a game, it's not worth anything.  The question is, does it entertain you?  If not then find something which does unless you are a masochist.

10.00 am and the children are still in bed, and at 5.00pm it's teatime, there's a football match about to start, and the children are getting pre-loaded for a night out, duh.

There's usually better things to do in the summer as well, so numbers generally dip a bit for the next few months.

 

Personally, I am on a bit of a break from the game, nothing to do with patches or recent changes, I'm just a bit bored of the game - actually trying to recover my old WT account at the moment, quite fancy a spin in my Griffon Spits again :)

Don't think the overall player base is shrinking (due to Seasonal variations and new games on market), but what is noticeable is the "quality" of the Game Play. This year has been really "varied" so far.

Totally agree with this. Asking the forum whether you should play this game or not seems like a convoluted exercise in narcissism. Play it if you like it, it's that simple.

Oh look, a mandatory "losing players" thread in the summer. Fascinating.

What would be the summer without at least one of those threads?

one Explanations for me is the last patch ranked battles - many of my real life buddies are worried about the new introduced Improved equipment and stop playing or playing something else - otherwise now it's summertime and we often went out grilling and drinking

What's actually funnier is the amount of games they've played in the last four weeks, or so, of this awful game.

Truth: My twisted and irrelevant opinion that everyone knows is utter nonsense because everytime I post on the forums it's some random BS:

There, fixed it.

 

Block Quote

Losing players to other tank games like "War Thunder" by the reasons:

 

No compensation when server is down.

Allow illegal mods for several years before wg took action.

Unbalance matchmaking

No new maps

Players dropping rate are slowly increasing that are not enough tiers for properly matchmaking

Siema players represent 98% of the wot player servers.

Illegal mod users getting banned are never banned so far is only limited and others are getting a "pardon".

Won't really bother to comment any of that nonsense. Players migrate to other, similar games because the one they play doesn't provide enough entertainment anymore. It's really that simple. 

 

Block Quote

Lies:

Toxic wot community said players aren't dropping from wot

Wot community said Illegal mods are okay because they used for they own

Illegal mod users getting forever ban after warning

Now... show us how much you are into that "truth" thing and show us some evidence to back up those three claims.

Oh, you can't? That's sad.
