Is it just me or am I missing the time before uppdate 9.11? When the the game just felt so much smoother? Am I the only one missing the old gun sounds from before update 9.14? I think they sounded much more satisfying than the current ones. They may not have sounded realistic, but I think they where more satisfying.

Just to mention the enormous variety of maps that once existed!

 

What's your thoughts on this?

I prefered old 122mm and 150+mm caliber sounds

 

The game ran like poop before though, i have the same computer from 2015 and i can actually max out the game at 40-60 FPS and 1080p + FXAA, this was not possible without all the optimization they've done so far.

 

Old MM was much better, IS-3 and IS-6 were the only broken OP tanks at high tiers and there were no dumb T-34-85M's, O-I's and other troll crap to ruin the game balance.

 

Also missing the awesome events like that Winter Tetris 8bit thingy, The cool Halloween garage, and AFAIR we had more specials (like this WoT EU team just doesnt care anymore lol, takes months before we get tank and equipment discounts)

Hi!

> Back in the good old days

... when tier-spread was 4,

when one couldn't buy "gold" ammo for silver,

where arty was twice as accurate and deadly...

No. There never was anything like good old days. ;)

Ah, "back in the old days" threads.  We used to get these all the time, they were much better back then.  Nostalgia is not what it used to be.

 

Oh to view the world wearing these:

Like 1-2 years ago the game was better agreed, further back than that. Not really I think.

I like most of the changes except the sound and even then its just the sounds from inside the tank.

Whether it is accurate or not I want the guns to make what to me sounds like a tank gun not a rifle or pistol and that's what some sound like to me.

More crack than boom.

Its like they really researched exactly what each gun sounded like when you are a crew member wearing a headset and the sound will be muffled.

If they did it was completely wasted on me.

Yeah, I'm sorry, I meant after that, about 1-2 years ago. I remember the time with +3/-3 MM xD. Terrible!

Yeah....back in the days when cars were much better.....at least they were ( mostly ) better looking and had more character, now you can only tell them apart by the badge because everything looks the same.....not missing those iron coffins tbh.

Back when t110e4 obsoleted all t10 heavies or when every game had at least 3 wtfe100s red line clipping you for full health? Back when arty 1 shot you every 4th game for trying to actually play the game or back when "artillery was the main firepower of your team"? Back when type 59s made grinding any non t29 tier 7 impossible or when gold firing m6 mutants  steamrolled everything that was not an m6 mutant?. No, if it wasnt for new age p2w premiums and superheavy crap, stupid paris-like maps and useless smm tanks the present patch would be perfect. No matter nothing can beat the wtfe100 patch for shittiness, the introduction of that tank was the worst thing in wot history

lol. I must say wte was my favourite t10 enemy. The monster with glass legs. Still remember those 1k hits on them with t9-10 tds. ech.. They were the reason to carry some HE back then. Everything looks logical but i jus tcant understand why before 9.17 i was able carry games have stable wr and feel joy and it is so hard now. Sure i am not an unicum mb because of that i feel 9.17 as huge nerf to me:)

I miss the time before I managed to pen most of the game's tanks without loading APCR. The time before Wargaming decided we're not wasting enough credits on gold rounds :facepalm:

I still remember all the lame [edited]that used to load full > 9000 pen apcr ammo with that thing and just autoaim and delete stuff, worst of all they would come back to the forum and claim that its ballanced because of the low armor and bad camo.. It was the only time in my wot carrier that i wanted to play arty just to watch them rage (all chat was a thing back then mind you)

No it is not just you. I also preferred those gun noises. Even though there are more "variety" now, they just sound bland to me.

The game itself has hardly changed in my opinion......the primary change being the money making strategies.

​We should have a virtual reality game by now. Producing HD maps, when every other new game that comes out has the same high end graphics isn't enough.  Wargaming should be striving to be inventive / creative and looking for the new game that's going to bring back the gamers to Wargaming products......not continually playing catch up and wasting time producing low end alternative WOT ports to other platforms.
