Hi,

 

I loved that game - and I still kinda love it.

Back in the days I made about 700 games per month.

Today 300 is the absolute maximum.. I quit the game because I get tilted of major things WG could just fix.

 

Update 1.0 is great! But the Community would be even more happier, if basic things get a change.

I know, that Wargaming is making alot money with the stuff they brought out lately. 

The armor is getting heavier so premium ammo needs to be shot more frequently. Actually? - I am fine with that.

 

I spend quite some money on that game and I would continue to do so in the future.

But WG get your matchmaking fixed.. Here is my solution:

 

Just go +-1 per tier. 

Only do 5/10 or 15 instead of 3/5/7.

That would mean in theory, that you are 33% of your games top tier and 66% low tier.

I wouldn't even bother, if I would be 80% low tier, but that's just because I would have to fight only against one tier higher.

As a tier 8 it is so hard to have a good impact on the game. An Obj.268 4 is driving in your face, what can you do? Nothing!

 

Even the other way round it isn't fun.. 

Playing as a tier 10 against tier 8 is no challenge at all. That effects, that I get bored and the 14 tier 8 players in the game start to rage.

15  tier 10 tanks vs. 15 tier 10 tanks is a challenge. 

But not tier 8 vs. tier 10.. that is just dumb.

 

I'm always asking myself, what we could do as a community to get this changed by WG..

But I think as long as WoT makes good money, they wont do anything about it..

 

Thanks for reading and share your thought's

I've said it before. And I'll say it again. If MM goes +1 one on all tiers. That's game over for me. Tho not gonna argue that the 3-5-7 MM don't work on high tiers. It's still needed on mid tiers unless you want to scare off new players again.

And yet most of the targets my tier 8's hates to face are not on tier X. But on tier 8. Equal tier games on tier 8 is why I'm not playing my IS-6 anymore. Not because it faces tier 9's.

The community is happy, don't project your own opinions on others.

 

If you don't like the game then don't play.  Don't come here thinking you speak for other people.

For now atleast, in not too long the shine of 1.0 will wear off, as the bad memories of 9.22 and before slowly fade to the background to be forgotten. Then people will remember that this game indeed has a lot of issues, which aren't just limited to mm, but also overall tank balance, arty and P2W elements.

The number of people bashing that battle button, even before 1.0 arrived, does not back up your opinion.

-+1 MM would kill the game dead overnight, but congratulations on not coming up with an idea for skill based MM, or are you working on it....?

The ability to sell off, ie fob off unwanted tanks to your clan members would be kinda funny, not nerfing tanks would be another, maybe buff Brit tanks, like the Matilda Churchill and some of the TD's.

 

If WG insist on powercreep, then powercreep all nationalities and not just the Russian line

 

Fix the tier 8 MM

 

Sell more rarer tanks, introduce brand new ones, re-arrange the entire premium shop to include better tanks.

 

The list could go on and on but i don't think out voices will be heard.........

 

But in a genuine show of approval, many thanks WG for fixing the recent billing issues, I was really getting worried for the past 12 hours:trollface:

Hilarious considering some of the shenanigans which goes on already due to password sharing in clans.

Because there are 123438 people who think the game is in good enough condition to play right now.

 

This is what we call evidence.

You've got my interest, how's that possible?

Do you prefer to go against a Type 4 than to go against a defender?

In IS-6?

 

I'm genuinely curious cause I feel exactly the opposite and I play PMM tanks a lot more since the MM template came out.

Going in 5-10 against tier IX's is the worst you can get and if the tier IX in my team are total <insert_insult> I very seldom successfully carry my weight. 

Do you feel you're less focused while being bottom tier in the current MM?

I loved the game from day one and still do, i dont tend to over think things or dwell so much in to reasons of why, this, that and the other and just accept it but what would make what a better place to be for sure is by getting rid of XVM and/or Toxic Players that seem to forget its a game and take it way to seriously

Players get toxic due to how the game and the whole business model is designed, there's a topic just about that on the main page too.

 

I've actually got an idea that would solve a lot of problems without hurting WG's wallet:

Why not separate tier X into a different game?

You'd have to earn experience tokens in regular WOT and pay a flat fee to enter it.

So you'd have a whole tier that would only have to balanced against itself + skill based MM (sort of) and the illusion of f2p on high tiers would be broken. 

All in one fell swoop :)

What do you think?

 

edit: Answering your question as to who'd want to play it:

Everyone enthusiastic about reaching and playing tier X.

Unless you'd have to admit to yourself you're in this game for p2w noob bashing :)

Why would you do that?  Just why?  It makes no sense.  It's a game, it's entertainment, if you do not enjoy it then find something else to do.  Is your life so bad that the best thing you can find to do is play a game you do not like?

I'd settle for not every aspect of the game turning into a 'point-click-adventure'.

Some map changes look promising in that regard.

+-1 will NOT kill WoT +-0 will NOT do it either. It will make game much, much better. And if some ppl like Balc0ra leave it will be only good for rest of us. We should have freedom to choose how we want play:

I would love to see that, but i guess it is impossible.

Why dont just do 15 artys against 15 artys? That would fix the game too :D

Players unity with 13+Rush rating will do, gamee knowledge and fair play makes beautifull and tricky game and teamplay.

About +-1. 6 tier tank can flank is3 in any stage of battle, why removing it - it is part of game...the fun, yes it became more impossible cos you can fix your tracks 5 times per battle but still you dont have to fire gold.

+1-1 is the way to go, it wouldn't kill the game it would revive it. T6 facing IS3's and defender and t8 facing type 5's and Maus's is just dumb, resorted to cannon fodder is not good for the game.

 

Being bottom tier most of the time you're relying on your top tiers and when they're dumb, which they usually are, you are really just playing out the inevitable, that works both ways win or lose.

More so that ever the MM is really the one deciding the outcome.
