we got a bunch of people in the clan who stopped playing WoT, from the feedback I get, here are the reasons:

(don't shoot the messenger, I just report back to the forum what people said)

 

1- powercreep by new tanks: WG keeps churning out new tanks that make the old ones obsolete, so players have to keep grinding to get whatever new good tank comes out that powercreeps older tanks. That reason was especially put forward by good players who are fed up with grinding new tank lines just to keep up. this is tiresome.

 

2- pay to win: new tier 8 premiums that kept coming in the past couple of years are just disgusting. this was said by all.

 

3- unbalanced teams: frustration from playing in teams that are hopelessly inferior or insanely superior to the enemy. In the first case, frustration from not being able to win, in the second case not being able to do more damage.

 

4- stupid map design: frustration from situational maps that severely limit some tanks' potential, such as playing a scout on Ensk (thank you very much WG) or corridor maps, or unbalanced maps (mines encounter or fjords).

 

5- RNG. RNG seems sometimes "rigged", i.e. some battles you can't hit anything, while in other battles any impossible shot is a hit.

You can also add to that list

6 . Rigged games makes all stats false and also makes the pro league false  .

7 . The game is a fraud .

 

Fraud is the crime of gaining money or financial benefits by a trick or by lying.

And you think that this is interesting or that anyone cares about your clanmates... because?
Look around, the forum is full of threads that explain all the things that are going wrong right now. No need for another one.

50,000 people did quit in the past 2 years, and many more will follow.

This. I grinded my tanks a long time ago and I've grown tired of doing it after 30k games. I'd like to play the tanks I have, but all the gold spam just renders them useless. I don't even have the ridiculous OP tanks that have appeared recently. I have the normal, average armor tanks like T57, E-100, E75... I constantly get spammed by scrubs that can't deal with a E-100 with standard ammo. Aparently that huge lower plate is not big enough for these losers.

It lines up with much of the other stuff people complain about here.

Basicly, his friends quit for same reason as people on the forum quit.

 

It further reinforce the idea that the MM is generally disliked, the maps are bad, powercreep is bad, p2w is bad.

Gold spammer said what?

 

Forgot to post evidence:

http://www.wotstats.org/stats/eu/enu_/

 

Yeah, because T32 with no gold ammo definitely is a 60%+ WR tank.

 

I won't even mention the Tiger II or the T59, on standard ammo... yeah, right!

 

Sorry to take the bite, but if you're going to pretend like the issues he posted are not valid, then I'm going to dis on your artificially enhanced performance to show that you fly above the issues by using p2w and so are blind to the current hard issues of the game.

+ ignoring comunity or answer to them in such way that feels like a insult !

yes, their Q&A feels like INSULTS when they say that "Type5 is hard to play, 268-4 and 430U are balanced, goldspam is only 5%, changing pref mm tanks but SELLING them more than ever beforethat....and more" and of course, after A LOT OF TIME, they just magically "realize" that players was right and remove / nerf tanks, etc...

those are just insults for everyone who is not dumb enough (like WG think) and cared to give them feedback or anything else usefull for game...

gj WG ! "Happy players ! " :facepalm:

Another valid reason is the fine weather!

Sun is shining and people are smiling, no need hunker down in a dark bunker playing WoT.

DERP guns at tier 8+ should be removed. They take away from the tactical aspect of the game. If armor is so easily pissed on by HE then why have it? They work at lower tiers as tanks are faster there and can avoid shells. Also, nerf the sh.it out of the japanese tanks. Either nerf their DPM to abysimal levels or nerf their armor. Delete OBJ cheat V4 and nerf the borken 907 and other such retar.ded tanks. I rather have 5 arties in the enemy team than on single of those tanks I mentioned.
