Since WG launched WoT, it's been all about draining your wallet. With the newer changes such as increased armor, decreased penetration, lower accuracy, stuns (for increased use of consumables) and now another failed MM... I dont think you should hold your breath. Aslong as people willingly purchase their premium vehicles and premium accounts, they will continue to drain our wallets and show us a big middlefinger.

 

WG doesnt care about fun game, just $$$$ - so STOP PAYING THEM and THEY WILL HAVE TO LISTEN TO PLAYERS!

Correct me if I am wrong but isn't a company's main objective to make money?

 

And if some don't pay you lose the game.....

I 'pay' for premium account because I enjoy the game and let's face it if WG don't make money WoT will fold.

So thanks 4 the advice, but I generally make my own mind up, so will ignore.

BTW u know you don't have to pay don't u?

No thanks.  I have no issue with the "problems" that people usually whine about on these forums.  I'm having fun.

Most of the people paying for this game thinks it's fun in the first place - and are used to the game having some quircks.

 

In case you didn't realize, the active forum population is but a speck of dust compared to the overall EU WoT population. You might as well stand on your porch and yell to your neighbours - an analogy also fitting for "feedback topics" created on the forums. The chance of someone collecting feedback and forwarding it to the right person (rinse and repeat a few times, probably), ultimately reaching the CEO, is probably the same as expecting your porch solo to be heard by a couchsurfing Victor Kislyi himself.

Well. Yes. The game is in such a horribly bad shape because, whatever WG does, people will still throw all their money at them. So they just throw out minor improvements and additions every now and then and be done with it. People will buy it.

 

Sooo... basically, I'm on your side. The only way to get a change of direction is stopping to pay. But there are multiple problems:

1. This post doesn't even reach 0,01% of the paying players.

2. There are many people who still think it's worth to pay, even though the devs openly poop on their shoes again and again. They enjoy getting milked. And who are you to tell them how to spend their money? This (sadly(?)) isn't how the world works.

 

Long story short: If you think it isn't worth it, stop paying. Other people have to make their own decisions.

Not paid anything in about 6 months now on 2 accounts and I'm going to be as big a burden as i can be. But this lack of gold is stifling my ability to grind easily.

I'll keep paying because I like the game and want it to be alive for many years to come.

Sure, there are issues but which game hasn't?

Funny.. I've seen plenty of topics recently to make armor valid again.

So you can hardly do 2 shots of damage to make a minor profit back? And it's the teams fault? Trust me. If WG "fixed" the MM. 0-15 games would not go away, nor would the average battle time go up. MM can't fix stupid. Nor can they fix the common thing that appears in all your games, you.

 

Not run a premium for 2 years. Still I have no issues making credits in a +2 game. As damage is not the only way to get that done, even in a HT. Bought the 155 when the news broke, and my credits went down to 1 million. I got 7 million again now... in 3 weeks, non premium. Even with the crap MM my tier 7/8/9 grinds are getting.

let me correct you a bit...

 

stop paying WG for THEIR MISTAKES !

i mean stupid OP premiums, inbalances, more and more p2w factors and stupid policy !

 

for good things (very rare in last period) they deserve rewards (money)...but for "mistakes" they must be PUNISHED NOT REWARDED !

Do you know Paracelsus?

Most game have issues. But this game has so many issues that it is barely playable right now. And it's not only about the issues. It's also about the developers who don't care about the players and just milk them. Somehow, people find it ok to support something like that online...

No, I will continue to pay for the service for as long as I see fit, even if it is full of issues.

If I don't pay for the game, you won't be able to play, so don't yell at me in ALL CAPS what to do, it's my fricking choice which games to waste money on. What you could have done to gain yourself some ground in arguing any of this is to ask the question of why and how people find it acceptable to pay for the service.

 

I'm not happy about how they handle the game and I still think a few bucks a month is fine.

I've come to terms around 6 years ago that this is simply how F2P games work, there is not one game out there that doesn't display these same symptoms in some degree, especially match-based or arena-style games and yet I continue to punish myself by playing said games just because of the good aspects of them. I'm not an idiot for liking something enough to pay money for it.

If you don't like the game, try another. Life is too short to waste your leisure time over something you don't enjoy, and constant negativity isn't good for your mental health either. You don't want to realize you've been bitching for 5 years straight, and only change you managed to create is turning yourself in to a [edited]in the process.

If no one else gives them money then you have nothing to play

In the European Union, someone could be the subject of this game - where does the money go, to whom and whether this money is supported by wars.

u understand, this game is putin game and game owner pay tax for putin. and where going money?
