I am getting a little worried about the amount of players leaving the game since the last update.
Also about the Matchmaking, It is terrible and the amount of players complaining, I can see them leaving the game soon as well. Looking at the games I was having yesterday, There used to be 170 k+ on a Saturday. Last night was 90-100k. That to me is a MASSIVE drop in the past few weeks. I know of 10 players that have left because of the Matchmaking and Players Re-rolling their accounts For STAT padding. My granddad used to say. ( If it's not broke don't fix it). I am all for the making of new tanks, I would like to see tier 9 & 10 Premium tanks.( Especially a tier X Arty) And possibly new MAPS ( As the old ones are a bit dated now) I would like to see some of the old maps come back with a different lay out And maybe some new ones.My fear is the amount of players that have or are not playing since the last update. and the amount of players unhappy with the way the game is going. (Pay to play). Today (Sunday used to be 150 k + players on at this time of day. And now I look there is 99k.

Dont be worried.  All games that devs dont listen to the player base have a shelf life.

Yep. There you always have a certain drop.

And for the current state of the game, the player numbers don't even look THAT bad...

Great idea, tier IX and X Premium tanks, if you want to price players out of the game that would be the way to go. :facepalm:

Go to http://www.vbaddict....world-of-tanks/

 

Change the dropdown to "by day".

 

See that it's a normal seasonal fluctuation.

 

What you actually saw was the massive peak we always get around Xmas followed by a drop to normal numbers.

players who play for longer are bored, coz they missing new maps, not tanks some maps are since the start of the game and all are fed up with this.  developers need to make new maps and asap till we have players who willing to pay money for extra in the game.

Ive been playing tanks for a long time now and over the years the games been getting worse, you fix one problem and unlock 3 more problems in the process.

 

Maps are a issue, you make attack and defence games but the attacking teams are given so much camping spots the attack part goes out of the window, T8 scout tanks being top tier, so they wont scout but instead change genre and become med/anti tanks...

 

Chinese tec tree for example, when will we see chinese artys.....answer probaly never as your more involved in spitting out premium vehicles, and on the premium vehicle front why was there never a premium arty for each faction..... i own a sexton and never got a LEFH... but wheres the german prem artys or russian...nope more prem meds and scouts and heavys...so even if you wanted to grind a new arty crew in a premium your options are limited.

 

Personaly its time that i backed away from this game and spend no more money as the game is so toxic and most vehicles are broken...T32 heavy tier 8: why is the gun so awful on pen and why do chyslers punch straight through me seeing as its the same gun...well we all know its a gold ammo related thing.

 

Clan wars reward tanks, why do they get to play them in normal games and most players have never seen one let alone know where the weak spots are, personaly its a clan wars vehicle so it should stay in clan wars. Heres a idea why not reward players with a free tank when they hit 20,000 games and then at 30,000 and so fourth even if the tank was only a t5 at 20,000 then a t6 at 30,000....noooooo what did i get a shitty ive been playing for 5 years sticker...gr8

 

My wife plays this game and she stopped playing the other day, for the first time ever she earned a radley walters medal in her PZ T25 and some stickers and a mark of excellence too only to find at the end of the game a pm from the enemy telling her to "learn to play and i hope you die of cancer".

So much for a freindly gaming enviroment huh.

 

We could go on for ever sreaming at the top of our voices for change, but we are in a world of deaf people and no one can hear you so you either bend over and get shafted or leave.

 

I know a lot of WG brown noser bridgade are going to jump on this in defence..but hey do i care ..not realy...me and my wife have just saved money as i will no longer contribute money into a game that refuses to listen to players.

 

Before i go.... how many of you got a ripper patton at xmas in the buy a box tree thing...my brother in law got one, he aint played for over a year but when he did play he spent £60.00 to £80.00 a month on this game, i send him one xmas box gift and he got a R-Patton in one.... hmmm luck maybe or WG spotting that his come back and theres a chance his money is coming with him so heres a R-Patton to tempt you back...

Have u had a look at NA server recently ? ok... around2k to 3 k leaving there the game and nobody coming... and on eu server only the PL and Eastern playerbase makes the game a little bit bigger. but in fact the game is done. the way this company treats the players and payers is more than awful. now they want to mentise every bs, t shirts small tank modes, cups and soon printed WoT toilet paper ( which in fact would fit very well to the situation ). Has nothing to do with sommer or whatever, in former times , 3 years ago, the game had a stable base, now it its dropping all time. and people who come soon leave. nobody wants to stand this preprogrammed bot 3-5-7 BS , more important, nobody ( only the hardcore addicted ones ) want to spend money. why do you think are they selling prem tanks like pop corn ??? hmm ?

As has been said, traffic is always lower in summer months. Period average for last 12 months on eu1/2 is only 1000 below 3 year, about 1.5% so no real evidence game is dying.

Vacation tends to do this. Give it a month and a new patch. HD maps should bring some players too, whenever that comes.

They do listen, it's just that they only listen to the "silent majority". And since that majority is silent... Amazing how that works^^
