Which one do you prefer?

 

Old World of Tanks (before 0.8)

+Balanced Standard Tanks

+Balanced Premium Tanks

+No Gold spam

+Better MM system

+More Players

-Bad Visuals,Sounds etc

-Overpowered Artillery

 

 

New World of Tanks (0.8 and others)

+One of the best Visual and Sound effects

-Artillery still overpowered but not like old world of tanks

-Unbalanced Standard Tanks

-Overpowered Premium Tanks

-Trash MM system

-Gold spammers

-More and more players quit WOT, downfall has started

 

I miss old days guys, everything was better. Of course it was more p2w when it comes to premium ammo but it was like %0.1 chance of encountering a player using them. Tanks was a lot more balanced, MM system wasnt that bad, premium tanks wasnt better than standard tanks they were equal so it had only more income advantage...

 

What happened Wargaming?

Pre 2015 WoT - netcode was terrible, visuals were utter garbage, p2w was insane, arty was cancer AF and UI was just, well there were no UI compared to what we have now. Balanced tanks? Auf E100, anybody?

It had a brilliant gameplay concept of a slowpaced shooter though, but that was all good about it.

Sometimes you do not need rose tint, but introducing the 1.0 update sure brought a lot of that. In game it is called "better graphics" but as a whole it means squat to the game experience...

Tanks was a lot more balanced, MM system wasnt that bad, premium tanks wasnt better than standard tanks they were equal so it had only more income advantage...

 

What happened Wargaming?

 

 

I like the new WoT better because in the old times:

 

  • Provence and widepark on tier X with 7 arties wasn't fun
  • Tanks were not really balanced and there was smaller selection so you see always the same tanks
  • Premium tanks were almost just bad, Lowe was easily farmable with tier 6 tanks
  • Driving a tier 5 light in tier 10 matchs was a disaster for new players
  • 7 arties per side (might have been more I can't remember)
  • Worse graphics and some bad modeling with invisible obstacles
  • WTF E - 100 :trollface: (even if I miss it a little)
  • Low variety of nations / tanks

 

The biggest problems left now are still

  • SPG (please turn them into actual tank rather than a one shot - end round - leftover, rework the stun and arc speed, made them visible after shooting and inform if you are getting targeted by arty)
  • 3 5 7 / 5 10 MM, it's just bad, it failed hard. Nobody have fun in playing tier 8
  • Rework gold ammo and reduce the amount you can carry to get rid of gold spam
  • Make Japanese Heavies weakspots actual weakspots, rather than gold ammo weakspots :coin:
  • Stop introducing high Tier Derps

 

The first 3 have always been a problem, still unresolved, the gold spam is fault of the Players only since the Pay 2 Win ammo is so popular that they start spamming pure gold since tier 4. :coin:

 

The game balance is having a big problem because of gold spam, and the best thing that could happen it's an effective rework rather than trying to balance the game around Pay 2 Win ammo, because it will just cause normal ammo to become more obsolete and encourage derps and "2" key :girl:

Did some things get worse? Yes, definitely.

Did everything get worse? No.

Was everything better before? Hell no.

For me personally the old version was much better even with all of it's problems. Update 1 has been a bit of a disaster from my perspective.

Old World of Tanks (before 0.8)

+Balanced Standard Tanks True

+Balanced Premium Tanks False = Type 59

+No Gold spam False it's always been there.

+Better MM system True

+More Players Marginally true but not by very much

-Bad Visuals,Sounds etc  Acceptable for the time

-Overpowered Artillery Completely true. It was not until 8.6 that arty was nerfed

 

 

New World of Tanks (0.8 and others)  Should be 8.6

+One of the best Visual and Sound effects False that comes after 1.0

-Artillery still overpowered but not like old world of tanks  False that comes after 8.6

-Unbalanced Standard Tanks True - Type 5, overbuffing and then nerfing of Maus and Object 268 v4 - blame that idiot Murazor (now thankfully fired from the balance department).

-Overpowered Premium Tanks  True - Object 252U/Defender another mistake by that idiot Murazor.

-Trash MM system  True - although when first introduced in patch 9.18 it worked, but the immediate micro patch at 9.18.1 ruined it.

-Gold spammers  False always been there

-More and more players quit WOT, downfall has started False - old games expect to see a drop off in player numbers in fact WG has done none too badly with player retention.

 

I miss old days guys, everything was better.  No it was not. Arty was hideous, and packs of Type 59s beating up tier V was horrible.

 

Of course it was more p2w when it comes to premium ammo but it was like %0.1 chance of encountering a player using them. No players still used it.

 

Tanks was a lot more balanced, apart from SerBs favourite the KV1S, the pre-nerf Hellcat and T69.

 

MM system wasnt that bad, True

 

premium tanks wasnt better than standard tanks Apart from the Type 59

 

they were equal so it had only more income advantage... False most of the premium tanks back then followed SerB's doctrine that they should be better than the stock equivalent tech tree tank, but not as good as the elite version see Lowe/Tiger II, and T34/T32 as examples.

 

What happened Wargaming? Murazor arrived in the balance department, signed off on German super heavy line and the Object 252U/Defender. Thankfully he got the sack from the balance department but the damage has been done.

It would be nice if WG would create a test server running an old version of WOT. (poll for version?)

That way people can actually experience the differences to form their opinion.

Could be pretty surprising for some i think.

New World of Tanks (0.8 and others)

 

- over-designed maps (junk, fences, walls, barrels - everywhere) - so annoying

- arty stun (own teammates shoot me trying to steal kill and stun me too and my crew member is dead. - SIC

- soap rock 

- 80% T10 tanks now is out of date - there is no point to grind, to buy and to play (obj 268, obj 140, is4, k91, 705a, grille 15, jgpze100, maus, e50m, leopard1, rhm.pzw, sheridan, t57heavy, e3, e5, all french t10 is pointless only arty is playable, centuri ax, 121, 113, stb-1, TVP, 60tp, kranvagn)

- ofc SUPER RIGGED MM - pre-programmed losses

- prohorovka, malinovka - u light tank player is noob and u lost game

 

Every year the wot actually gets worse.

Then stop trying to steal the kill.  If arty kills it you get half the credit anyway.
