This game has been getting worse little by little over the years, but in the past few months the rate of deterioration has increased a lot. OP premium tanks, destruction of the competitive environment, and pandering to the lowest common denominator to name a few things. 

I think this wouldn't have happened with SerB in charge, and I think it would be greatly beneficial to World of Tanks if he was put back in charge of the vision for the game. What do you think?

Things that don't bother me:

  • Goldspam®
  • Tier VIII MM or MM in general
  • SPGs
  • Overpowered vehicles and powercreep
  • Premspam
  • "Balance"

 

Things that bother me:

  • Elitism
  • Toxicity

 

In my opinion, the rest can go to hell for all I care and are of no use if these aren't addressed.

Doesn't SerB still run WoT though? Judging by the comments, no. I still don't care though.

If only SerB were still in charge, it wouldn't be like this.

For those not familiar with the man, the legend, here's a taste straight from better times: http://ftr.wot-news....07/08/8-7-2013/

 

- Skill MM: “There will be no skill MM. If you improve your skill, you will have the right to pwn”

- Q: “Will you introduce high penetrating premium tanks?” A: “How about a ‘pwn everyone’ button?”

 

And a good portrait:

That is a full bottle behind him, looks unopened. And he is using a coffee mug, which for most actually contains coffee. Do you actually abstain from drinking completely at work, not even water? Weirdo :hiding:

As a matter of fact I do. Ain't that a kick in the head, huh?

 

But no. I understand.

 

Should go without saying but just because I do, I do not expect others to do it as well.

Some time ago, actually. He hasnt been as balance lead for ages though (last time he was actual haead of balance was long ago, like until somewhere in 2013-2014 Veider rose as balance lead (he was not great either though, FV4005, AMX 30 B, prebuff Type 5 Heavy (seriously thought its balanced), are all his result). Veider got kicked and Murazor became head balance in 2016.

 

SerB was still part of WoT team, but he focused on other things like WoWs. Dont know what he is doing nowadays. Storm was also important when it came to balance, but he also left in 2016, mostly because of the fact he was just tired after 6 years, leaving all into Murazor's hands, as well as Slava's (the brony guy). Murazor first seemed very promising, but things started to get suspicious when not long after he rose as lead, Skorpioj came, then Liberte, Paytriot...but he lost all of his respect quite suddendly when 9.17.1 and superheavy overkill buffs happened, as well as Defender was released. It was then when people actually learned that Murazor was a former streamer and youtuber, who is Maus fanboi and literally thinks that "medium [edited]shouldnt be able to pen heavies frontally"

It seems weird to say this but yes, having Serb back as lead dev could only work out for the better.

Yes, yes I agree. So much. You can say much about him, but at least he doesn't want to suit game for bots. And that's enough for my vote.

If someone would have told me there would be a poll asking to bring Serb back to save our souls, I would have either died laughing at the time or have launched a poll myself to ask to send the OP to the looney bin.

 

But the times they are a changing......

 

I voted yes on this one

It's a shuriken.

Get it? Because it splits the wind?

 

On a serious note, why would think that I'm a snowflake?

Hell yes. SerB was in charge when the Aufkl Panther and old Chaffee were around.
