Well, for me at least, things are quite unpleasant now.

 

To be placed in almost constant +2 MM is something that I can handle to some point.

 

What I can not handle is not to have a chance to play decent. I don't know what is happening or if I am just unlucky, but almost all of my games are very boring. My hitrate suddenly droped from 70-75% to a hilarious 20-30%. I quited to play for a week and now I am playing again with same results (or worst).

 

My premium account will expire today and under no circumstances I will not renew it until the things will become more acceptable. Without a premium account, my requirement from the game is very low. From my own perspective (it may be wrong) things are out of control regarding all the aspects of the game : MM, balance, RNG etc.

Sounds like you need to aim a little better.

Yes, perhaps I forgot how to aim over night so, until I will learn again, I will play for free:) How does it sound?

It's like when playing roulette asking players to aim better numbers.

Indeed....I must take note of this thread for those who claim it does.

Too many negatives in this sentence. It makes it read that you WILL renew until things become more acceptable. 

 

I can understand your frustration, and I can sort of understand the feeling that Premium Account can affect win rate, but I havent heard of it affecting hit rate. Sometimes I think that some players, and I have noticed it with my own game, can fall into the trap of thinking that Premium or Reserves, provide a safety net and they subconsciously relax their concentration, or the converse happens and they feel that because they have Premium or Reserves running, they have to concentrate more on damage or some such aspect, and in doing so they forget about all the other components of their game. Is a bit like concentrating on a mission or trying to get a MoE. If you concentrate solely on that, other parts of your game can suffer. Some players can do that, some cant.

I really appreciate it when lots of people start F2P. It's like you guys are starting to wake up and realize that complaining about something won't fix it, but actions could. Hats off to you guys

I did not say that a premium account affects the hit rate. I said that in the current circumstances, when there is no fun at all, I see no point to renew my premium account. At best, I can play for free.

If there's no fun left in WoT then I suggest you don't play.

Find something else to play, personally I have great fun.

I don't mind the RNG, MM or whatever. Surely that is the crux, play the game for what it is/has become.

Sure, you are right. And if I want to play a few games per week I don't need a premium account, do I?:)

​MM is not why I did stop buying premium time 3 years ago. But that's what a 3-5-7 template gets you. Hopefully the Asian MM tests and the extra templates to give more room for top tiers will improve it.... when ever that gets here. Then agian most tanks I've played of late are as useless in equal tier as they are in +2. So it matters little. It's why my fun tanks are flexible tanks that work regardless of what they get. Inc the Swedish Leo.

Sure, sounds a perfectly fine idea so go for it, just don't expect it to make a difference to whether you can hit anything or not. :)

No such expectations but at least I don't need a premium account for a 7 days  -  30% winrate, 20% hitrate. It seems to me that I am too noob for this game. I let the professionals to do their job :)
