Wold of Tanks is a dying game?

 

Just watched QB's vid on the IS3a lootbox thing, six million euro's made by that alone, I think somehow the game seems safe for now

Imagine how much they would have made if they had the same amount of players as they did 2 years ago. 

 

The decline is a fact.

Fake news.

QB assumes a 1 in 10 chance of winning an IS3A and works out lootbox spend based on a hunch.

Plus the IS3A is not op, its a poor IS3 with burst capability once every 90seconds approx.

The game he features does not show an op tank owning all before. The player was lucky in the end that the enemy team had more than its fair share of noobs.
Therefore QBs argument is not valid.

He does not mention either the benefits that lootboxes have brought in terms of value of lootbox contents, gold, other tanks etc, compared to their cost.

How much misinformation and misquotes can you fit into one post?

We'll see in February / March.


Given what I have seen this Christmas period unless they implement the premium ammo and MM changes quickly I think there's a fair chance they will lose it. There's certainly an upturn in whine threads on here recently, even the one's which are valid concerns.

I never said it wasn't, and this time two years ago I was not even in the game so cannot possibly comment on that, to all other points raised,yes you are correct too.

"Dying" is relative. It can take just a second but it can also take years.
The people who are definitely wrong are those who claim that it's dead already. It's far from that. It's lying there with all kinds of tubes stuffed into every possible body hole... but it's not dead yet.

It's also possible to be brain dead, without being physically dead.  Seems apt.

He says 1 in 100.  I don't know where he gets that from, but probably based on the pile of loot boxes WG gave him so hardly scientific.  It could be even less often which would mean even more boxes bought.

 

IS-3A is somehow missing from his list of OP tanks which must be rebalanced or never sold again in his "how to fix WoT" video though so it must be fine.

If not for a reload mod that I have, I wouldn't even now that IS3-a is an autoreloading tank because nobody managed to put more than 1 shell in me. Either I've met only noobs in IS3-a, or the tank is not op at all.

AW with player base 100x lower is not a dead game. It lives. So stop with these fake news bull crap nonsense. This game will be alive at least for 10 years, easily. If it will have playerbase 10x lower so what? Revenue will be enough for servers and few employees.

Thanks for the correction but exactly underlines my point, picking a number from thin air to make a statement which is therefore invalid

It's not just his lootboxes, as I understand there has been a collaborative effort of players adding their results in a community spreadsheet. Iirc the sheet is also shown in the video. If they have a sample size if a few thousand boxes that is good enough.

But who comes forward with their figures?  Mostly the people who get lucky, that's who.

 

A few thousand would be good if they were randomly selected.  This is a self selecting sample so I would take it with a large pinch of salt.

 

The error is likely to be that his estimate of total loot boxes sold is somewhat on the low side.  Which is even better for WG's bank balance.

Wargaming gave all community contributors a 200 free boxes. When watching all the opening vids, it becomes with a 99% certainty that there is a 15% chance on any tier 5 tank, and a 1% chance of any tier 7/8 tank. As far as I know, whenever you roll that 1% chance, you will get one of the tier 7/8 tanks that you don't own yet. So rolling an IS-3A would be a 1:100 chance for someone owning the defender, e-25 and Skorpion G, up to 1:400 for someone not owning any of these.

 

Therefore, the 1:100 chance he used is rather high: for many it could be 1:200, 1:300 or 1:400. That makes the sales even more profitable for Wargaming, possible up to 20 millions worth of sales.

WG's profits had never been in question.

And that is exactly what makes their commitment to the quality of their products questionable.

 

WG owners are already too rich to care, and this circus is being kept open only because it would be an embarrassment to close it down.
