Every game 60%+ TD's.


 

Camping meta is stronker then ever.


 

Arty is focusing and one shotting light tanks.


 

Arty whiner are still whining but inivisble TD's near one-shotting anything trying to do anything else then kemp bush is ok for them.


 

Spotting system is no use. 85% maps corridor, city and close quarter combat.


 

Lets appease the whiners fully shall we? Ok I am for it now.


 

Lets finally remove everything that World of Tanks used to be.


 

I am for it now. Things cant go worse...and perhaps we will not have more arty whining threads or similar whining.


 

I suggest:


 

- Make all guns always hit over any distance if the aim is on target. Like in Counter Strike. No travel time of shells.

- Remove RNG completely from the game. Shells always have the same penetration. The damage is always the same. The kids want it like this. Same as Counter Strike.

- Remove arty so that we can get rid of the whining.

- Buff all TD's even more.

- Have scorpion G in tech tree but on constant 50% sale.

- Make maps even smaller with more houses, remove even more bushes . Any open terrain still left has to be sectioned or add houses and hills.

- Remove light tanks. They just make tomatoes think there are still scouts in the game.


 

Voila...here you have "World of Duty". Bravo! Whiners finally win! No need to learn maps and advanced spotting system...just either kemp bush with TD or press W in Maus. GG WP!

Foch 155 to premium if you have it in your garage, and STRV 105B is Top of the tree. 

 

I know fair well when i log in and Im grinding my T9 Swede that there will be a fair amount of TDs in the game.

Totally agree, like arty, TDs should have a maximum of, say, 3 per side.

Mind u TDs seem to be right popular right now, u see that in queue for battle, wonder why....

No he is right (on some points) there are a lot of TDs in the game at the moment, though obviously people trying to get the Foch 155 before 9.20 and the fact the Swedish TDs are TOTT don't help. 

 

I suspect what has happened is the super passive arty players, the ones that can only click have migrated to TDs much like after the 8.6 arty nerfs, basically going to the next easiest to play class (easy, not neccesarily effective).

 

However the game matches up TDs these days so it's not much of a problem, bit annoying when all your top tiers are TDs and they all camp because you have no one to support. But also makes impacting a game when you play a TD easier because generally all you have to do is find the W key and you are already better and more useful to your team than 90% of TD players. 

 

I;m not seeing arty one shots though, even lights most of the time get away with minimal damage and I'm not seeing that much arty full stop, still WAY WAY better than it used to be, arty generally IMO has a minimal impact in the average WOT game, the games are not long enough for them to do decent damage and it seems a lot of former scumbags have migrated to base camping in TDs.

Good time to go back to trying MT-15 for the 260 again then.

 

Plus I am one of the TDs as I'm grinding towards the Foch155 atm.

TDs are easy to play, lol.

 

Jokes aside, it's hardly any surprise. TDs are the easiest way of getting some damage done if you don't want to learn the game much (active TD gameplay is another story, that actually requires some situational awareness and map knowledge). No, it does not require any skills to sit still in the base and wait for the enemy to arrive, which a lot of players do.

 

3-5-7 means the vast majority of anyone's games will be bottom- or mid-tier. TDs can largely ignore what tier they're in - most can sit in the same bush and shoot down the same lane regardless. Strong combination right there. Maps don't exactly help either, both the lack of counters for basecamping and basecamping as a concept by itself. 

 

Credit gains depends on damage and spotting. Spotting is far from reliable. Damage is far better, if you're in a TD you can usually get a couple of shots off - and a S1/UDES has no real problems penning a Maus unless it's specifically angling for you.

That's what I meant by easy to play, as in if you just camp in base and wait for people to come to you then it;s probably the easiest way of doing damage as a lot of TDs have high pen and high alpha for their tiers.  They aren't easy to play actively but 90% of players aren't able to play heavy tanks actively.

Lets also remove platoons. Invites dont work anyway...except for making fake brothers in arms medals.

 

Lets not give the impression you are supposed to teamplay in a multiplayer game.

 

Add a PvE story mode so all can finally disconnect from the internet alltogther...

Yeah, your reply beat me to the punch. I do agree that TDs are in their worst form just LOS artillery, and arguably rather close to pre-rebalance artillery in how much fun it adds to the game. :)

TD easy to play - best joke ever! Its easy if your opponents are dumb enough to get hit. If you want to be effective, it is not really different in terms of difficulty compared to MTs. And I would say MTs have more tools to get out from tricky situations, leaving more room for error.

But on topic - MT-15 heaven.

If only this were true.  Unfortunately, if you play a medium with MT15 (do 2K damage to TDs), I can assure you that there is game after game after game with less than 3 TDs, many with none at all.

Then why is your most played tank a TD? I'm sure you can see the "appeal" then. As you played that 24/7 at one point.

 

Then again... mountain goats want's their last hurrah. Foch 155 grinds, and Swedish TD's are top of the tree. That's gonna be high tiers more or less until 9.20.
