Developers are slow to fix to problems that the community points out/rebalance tanks/arty/gold ammo. Are they burned out or are the wg owner craving money to much to let the developers fix the problems?

They know what the real problems are better than us. They are just doing anything to postpone fixing them as long as they can because money.

WG isn't going to fix for the player that which is bringing them in the most money.

 

Premium ammo completely breaks armor balancing over the knee with a sickening crack but since it also nets them a very healthy profit, they'll happily sacrifice balancing for financial gains. This is just one of the many examples present but unless players actually stop using premium ammo and simply lose engagements (highly unlikely) it will persist and WG won't properly balance armor to standard ammo only.

Yeah... all of the above, or when player database detoriates even further to the point of their earning becoming unacceptable...

I feel bad for WG devs. A new player, a noob, average player and a 60% player all expect different things to be changed. They are all certain they are right and everyone else, including the devs are wrong and don't know s*it. Whatever change they do or don't do is going to upset some group of players. So they're stuck making compromise after compromise, which will upset everyone.

I reckon if you ask 20 players what they consider needs changing you may end up with 20 differing answers.

Whether it be MM, OP tanks, arty etc etc, there is even a thread about the number of pop ups in garage...

My philosophy is fairly simple...

Play the game for what it is not what it used to be or what it may become....

As developers they should know whom to listen to, that way you don't have that many different standpoints anymore.

Besides that, they also fail to fix the stuff that most players agree on.

 

@ topic: Why should they fix anything when players constantly tell them that everything is fine and that they love everything WG does? You are still one of those players.

There was a patch 10 days after WG messed up carriers in world of warships based on feedback  from CC's and players.  Meanwhile at WOT HQ we are still waiting years for stuff like that, they repeatedly lie to players and mislead CC's face to face and lets not forget threats to take away their you tube channels.

Premium ammo makes WG a lot of cash by pushing players to use gold ammo on heavily armoured tanks, which in turn, pushes them buy premium time in order to earn credits while spamming gold.

Yes. I can see that you finally understand it after 24000 battles.

the game is free to play, everything else is a player decision
yes they have some pretty good mechanics in place that makes people want to buy things in this game but i dont think the company is greedy, if anything the capitalize on the greed of the consumer who wants more,better, faster, stronger  and willing to pay any price for it.

If people wouldnt buy 50€ tanks they'd probably cost 10$ by now.

I have never felt the need to have premium to pay for premium ammo though, but rather because advancement feels too slow without it.

Maybe because they can? Maybe they feel that current balance earn them more money? I mean, if it was your company, wouldn't you do the same?

Check the list of "known issues" with every patch. They have been the same for over a year...
