I started playing wot 6 years ago. Nowadays this game is so p2w that it makes me sick. Playing 20 rounds in O-Ni and 18 of those rounds i get matched vs T9. New "rebalancing" mechanics where they buffing turret armor of many tanks and nerfing standard ammo penetration or premium tanks without any weak spots. What makes it worse that popular streamers don't protest against it. It's feedback loop and with time it will get even worse. Don't waste your time, money and quit this p2w [edited].

Game isn't pay 2 win.

 

MM is nothing to do with paying to win. Getting matched as bottom tier 18 times when solo is next to impossible and I don't believe you for one second.

 

Buffing turret armour is a good thing since alot of the tanks being buffed where extremely weak. Brit meds etc.

 

Standard ammo has not been nerfed, you just don't know where to aim.

 

All tanks have weakspots, even the OP defender.

 

Goodbye, nobody knows who you are nor will they miss you.

The matchmaking is the problem. If it was pay to win trust me, my win rate would be much higher.

Six years and you haven't learnt that quitting posts only feed trolls that lurk on this forum?

It's not that the O-Ni can, like all derps, hurt any tank it meets. I also can bounce higher tiers well enough - you might either want to pick another example or roll with it.

Your last battle was yesterday, so you had like 18 hours before posting this.

"Popular Streamers" have their Stream to think about, and several of them are highlighting changes they feel have an impact.

Kinda feels like this thread should have been posted in the frustration therapy room :)

....and yet you're doing better in the O-Ni than in many of your other tanks.

He doesn't do well in any tanks. Maybe that is the real reason he quit?

Most that have a strong turret, have a weak hull. And most tanks are what we call hull down fighters. The hull is their weak spots. But some have weak spots on the turret to, you just gotta know what to aim for. Even the Defender as mentioned above, have two 150mm strips at the top of the turret. Small target, but it's still there. And if you don't want to fight it, and can't pen it. Why waif for it and fight it?

 

And ammo nerf? Only tanks have have had their ammo and prem ammo nerfed are SPG's and LT's of late for the most part. LT's since they don't have scout MM. I'm still waiting for someone to give me a good reason for the tier 5 ELC to have 258 gold pen vs tier 4. He faced tier X's when he was added, not anymore.  And the other tanks that have gotten it of late, the pen loss is so minor it makes no difference. usually to compensate for more alpha. That's called balance. And the only people it affects. Is those that don't aim.

Why should they? They can compensate for it. They know how to deal with most tanks. You don't see Circon or QB whine and rage about a hull down tank that has been buffed, and stay there and bounce 30 shots at him do you? They either leave, or force him out so they can bully the hull. That's why they don't complain. They do complain about other stuff ofc. But not about everything... or blame everything like most.

It forces you to use premium ammo.

it is in a lot of ways...but a lot of players just fail to understand how.

well...mm really have something to do with p2w...because in mostly games youre bottom tier and that means underpowered. You must compensate with gold...and this is p2w.

 

Buffing turret armour is a good thing since alot of the tanks being buffed where extremely weak. Brit meds etc.

sure, so the fact that even meds require gold ammo to pen them now is a good thing for you...great balance and not p2w !!

just stfu

 

 

Standard ammo has not been nerfed, you just don't know where to aim.

overbuffing armor and weakpoints removal is a indirect nerf to standard ammo..if you didnt know..:facepalm:

 

 

All tanks have weakspots, even the OP defender.

show me please weakpoints for Chrysler, Maus, Type5...just for example. Theres more retard tanks but just show me for those 3 :)

and i mean..REAL weakpoints, not weak only for gold !

 

 

Goodbye, nobody knows who you are nor will they miss you.

I wish people would just quit quietly instead of spending the next 2 months in the forums complaining about it,

just go already and don't slam the door on your way out.

 

PS: see you in-game next week after you got over your little peeve session.

So your protest numbers of players not taking part in an event includes those that don't even play the game?

I wish there were awards for stupid posts.

 

You pay gold for premium ammo?... thats funny, I can buy mine with credits I make in battle so I fail to see where the p2w is in there? Please enlighten everyone. Since you say it is P2w in many ways yet your single example in your post is complete nonsense.

 

Again, hull down tanks are designed to have good turrets. If you simply can't deal with the fact you can't run around shouting HERP DERP AUTOAIM then you're in the wrong game. Fact.

 

Any semi-competent player knows not to frontally face a Super Heavy. Thats kind of the point of them. Leave a Tier X super heavy until last as without support they're less than useless. Isolation is key. The Maus btw can be penetrated through the front drive wheel by the majorty of standard ammo in tier X tanks. Chryslers in the same place by any tank with a decent gun.

 

Just because you can't penetrate a tank frontally that doesn't mean it doesn't have weakspots...
