Wargaming, you just can't resist the urge to knee-cap your own game at every term for short term financial gains can you?.

The defender is statistically over performing compared to it's competition, so is the E-25 and so is the Lefefefefe and by bringing more of them into matches, you are negatively influencing your game in the long term.

The fountain of good-will the community has for you is drying up pretty fast at this pace, and trust me, that is the last thing you can afford at the moment.


You really have to start turning around your "1 step forward, 2 steps backwards" way of working you've been doing for the past two years with this game.


Your community is telling you you're doing things wrong, your community contributors are telling you you are doing things wrong, your player numbers are dwindling ever faster and the only things you come up with are more broken/OP premium in the game, more over-importance of heavy armor, more free-XP/Money sink tech trees that are garbage up to tier 8, the terrible 3-5-7 template still hasn't been removed and the basic gameplay problems that have been plaguing this game since the beginning are still not addressed.

For the love of baby jeebus start listening to your players, they are telling you the game is becoming less and less *FUN* to play which is the thing a game should be, fun.


With these kinds of offers that give you cash hand over fist in the short term, you are actually damaging your game (and it's profitability) in the long term because you are only further unbalancing it and exasperating existing issues. Maybe, just *maybe* it's better to think about making a little less cash right now so you can make more cash further down the line. We love this game and we want it to be around in 5-10 years time still but by the way you have been running the show for the past 2-4 years it's becoming more and more clear you as the owner don't want that, you don't want your game to be around longer, you just want to make all the cash now even if that means you need to damage your own game in the process. 

And honestly, for someone who has been playing this game since CBT, that hurts because there is no need to do it.

NO NO  NO. Don't swamp tier 5 with ruddy leFH18B2the tank is horribly unbalanced in tier 5, it is a horrible tank for new players to play against.

YES YES YES. 3D styles for tier tens. MORE OF THIS! They look awesome (though lose the minigun on the T57).

They are actually putting bullshits like Defender/LeFe/E-25 on sale, more and more and more often.

What they do at WG shows that they don't care about WoT in long terms. They don't want to make this game better. They only want to milk people like us cuz PEOPLE ARE BUYING these bull shits, as I did yesterday (130PM at -80%)

Stop being silly, quit the game and hopefully WG will learn one day.

If they don't, quitting a dying game which is becoming worse and worse, cannot be a bad decision.

(I am saying this, mainly to myself)

So many less than good thing here WG. You are selling blatantly overpowered flat out broken tanks. But you aren't atually selling the tanks, you are selling the chance to win one.


I love how ompanies keep promoting gambling as if it isn't exactly that.


Atleast you have some cosmetic items. You are still gambling with them but atleast they aren't brokenly op tanks.

Cobra6, i always said this. The MM is not broken, according to eekeeboo satetments on facebook. And he is right. Its not broken for them. Case1. You are in tier 8, get to play 80% in tier 10 games. So you shoot gold ammo, which u buy with credits. So, you need premium time not to get into minus. Wg 1, you 0. Case 2. You are tier 6 noob. See defender, chrysler or other op premium tanks doing lol dmg and you bouncing. So you NEED to buy one of those. But hey, according to MM template you will get 80% in tier 10 games. So you shoot gold ammo, buy premium time. Wg 3, you 0. Get it?

Until whole EU server will noy boicot wg buy not buying anything for real cash a month as a warning, they will never ever give a flying fly about what ppl say!!

Oh, im free from this game, as i am banned :)

So i'm doing the calculations. 

last year prices - assuming these are the same was 40euros / 25 boxes. 

25 boxes * 250 gold = 6250gold for 40euros (that is the guarranteed loot you'll get) 

ratio = 156 gold / euro

Price in shop, is


7500gold for 27,45 gold 

ratio = 273 gold / euro 

or 14500 gold for 50euro 

ratio = 290 gold / euro

or even better ratio assuming you'll get bigger bundles, as you most propably will get more lootboxes than 50euros. 


Again i am talking about the guarranteed gold, assuming you might just get unlucky. The gold/euro ratio of lootboxes is almost half the shop value (in a non - special offer period, you might find even better prices sometimes...)!

However that is without including the 4rth -hiddenRNG- slot

Last year i got more than 100 euros of boxes, and i got ZERO tier 8 tanks. My gold earnings (including the 4rth -rng- slot) yes, they were a little bit more or arround the shop prices. ( i think i got like 2 times the tier 4 vehicles), so i cannot say i was unsatisfied, but not enthusiasted even. 

What i believe, is including the 4rth rng slot, your GOLD value, might end near shop's price. 
Then it's pure luck if you end with a special tier 8 vehicle, or not. 

PS. completing the collections was a good bonus too, we need to be fair, but... gold wise, unless you already have these tanks and you get a gold compensation... its not super-great.

I was a bit hyped about thiis loot boxes in the beggining - I admit!


Now that I saw the actual offer, I went on the other game site and bought a full game without any itention to spend a single cent on WOT this year, at last. So hugely dissopointed!

The pivotal point of their offer, that was originaly designed around the idea of festive ambiance - giving gifts to other players (which I truly and wholehearthetdly enjoy!) decorating tree for the surge in exp, credits and other stuff, is now gambling and investing huge money to get hold of OP tanks! Can you imagine that 2 out 4 tanks are Defender and E25!?!?!

In a single take - the whole Christmas event is a mascarade of an expensive gambling event with Defender as a main prize!


Sad... really sad..


For those who wish to know which other game I bought - it is a flight sim ;)
