WG I have played this game since BETA but I am finally going to have to stop as you have got too greedy and broke the game.

I don't run premium but like to play at tire 9. Because now most of my standard rounds no longer pen and I can not rely on my experience and game mechanics to deflect the myriad of premium rounds coming the other way I just can't play this game any more. As most of my rounds dont pen I can't carry the game or turn a profit. I held a 56% win rate for years but now it is plummeting, did I change? no the game did.

 

In most of the screen grabs below you will see that while most of my shots don't pen, the premium rounds coming the other way all seem to have no trouble (with the exception of the E75 for obvious reasons). 

If you don't want people like me playing your game anymore that's fine but the game queues will shrink, people will get tired of waiting in them and the game will fizzle away and all your hard work will have been for nothing.

 

Don't bother trolling this post, I wont even read it, its for the attention of Wargaming Staff.

1. With that thread title you definitely won't attract the Wargaming staff. Even if they cared about what's written in these forums. Don't use terms you don't understand.

2. Yes, premammo is still a problem. A well-known one. But it's also perfectly possible to play without it. Not without drawbacks, but it's possible.

3. Did you play those matches in a row or did you cherrypick them?

Agree, I play mostly gold ammo free and I am fine. That net me 75.000.000 credits in the last period

 

Yes they are abused by tomatoes, but at least they have a chance (sure is funny when they spam heat on spaced armor and tracks but hey you can get only so much) :coin:

If that was true (and I'm not saying it is) then we are the closest he will get to...

You accidentally wrote in your profile that you are 43 years of age. Would you please correct that and turn that number into a 13? Because, statistically, 43yo human beings are meant to be mature, intelligent, open minded and able to take criticism.

13?  I think maybe he meant 4 or 3.

I still remember the time when every second thread on the forum was about some not playing a role in the game anymore. Now every second thread is about too much armor and gold rounds. I guess you can't satisfy everybody at the same time.

But apparently you can upset everybody at the same time (at least on forums) :B

And I'm a better player than you in wn8, recent wn8 and recent winrate. So following your logic that means your opinion is worth nothing if I disagree with it?

You're wasting your time here man. While your stats may be better than others your recents aren't and regardless of the reason I'd be cautious about it. SO first and foremost ignore what dingers say. Most of them are just yellows that will say everything is perfectly fine. I dunno why or how they always come to that conclusion but  they do. Second of all, regarding the post: 

 

My account was made in 2013 and I to feel like this game has gone no where but downwards. it's core game play is just degrading and the most worrying thing is WG claims these issues are hard to fix (or should I say the principle of the issues e.g to find solutions. I don't know how hard programming is so...) when they really are not  (ofc Wg probably has 'money milking' deeply tied into how 'fixes' would effect their pockets). Every issue in this game has somehow managed to become entangled and entwined that fixing this game now would be like trying to untangle a bunch of knotted string. Undo one and another issues will occur. I think it's safe to say that most beta players have long gone for one reason or another. It's a shame really because I could list 1000 different solutions to make the game better the problem is the game seems to be catering toward idiots more and more. Further more I feel no matter how many valid 'fixes' are presented WG themselves feel to me as if they are lazy devs.

So to break it down, Play the game expecting it to only get worse or don't play at all. I'll take war-gaming seriously when they make a forum thread for suggestions where only people with certain PR/WR/AVG. DMG/AVG. Tier, and even wn8, can post. I really don't see why they should take feedback from bad players such as oranges, below 54% win rate or people who have played a large sum of battles and only managed average stats. These players are run of the mil 'casuals' and will probably play regardless of changes; as they have done for so long. 

Too many aspects of this game are made to allow bad players to compete with the good, which is not they way it should be. RNG for instance, allows bad players to compete with good players, Arty is another example. Broken tanks that didn't exist before which changed the ''A tank is as good as it's player'' meta. Now I have 17k games 346WN8 botters charging me in 268 V4's and getting away with it, not because of bad position, bad aim or bad play in general just simply skill compensate tanks that allow players to perform better than they should. and all  of these are tangled in with each other. 

sad thing is being so invested in the game I'll probably be one of the last to stop playing regardless of how bad it gets. And im sure there are other who feel the same in regards to this. Kinda wonder if it was part of WG's plan/model business. In my eyes WG has surpassed EA and R* in terms of facepalm levels.

if you find a game similar let me know. 

 

PS: I play Blitz on PC for a bit of stress relief if main WoT becomes too frustrating. RNG is reduced and tanks are more balanced. The core gameplay on Blitz is what the game should be like minus the 7v7 layout. IMO the gameplay more than makes up for hideous graphics. Might wanna give it a go.

And what exactly are you hitting, and at what angle? Can't say my T-10 or E75 struggle with pen to make me only get 2 pens a game, even vs Super heavies. Unless you are saying that 250+ normal pen is crap in the current meta?
