Not at all, only played the 6 so far and it's pretty crappy. Not seen many in frontlines either so can't be that game breaking.

The only thing I've really noticed  is that there is a little bit more HE flying around then usual, apart from that I can't say that they've had any major impact apart from the occasional yoloer that now can live out their yoloing dreams.

Not many people play wheeled vehicles. So wheeled vehicles did not ruin WoT.

Don't worry OP, it's still the same.

 

You just have to go drown a bit sooner when playing arty, so you wont get caught.

My recommendation would be to do it at the beginning of the battle. 

 

Just in case.

Interesting that the person who's most played tanks are either TD or arty, doesn't like wheeled vehicles, seems like someone is unable to adjust their playstyle to meet new challenges, here is a tip, use the WASD keys.

And why did they ruin the game? Not even sharing your opinion makes this just another dumb spamthread.

Now the mad rush is over they are just another light,  the tumbling ball of flames when you whack one on the move is bloody funny though so maybe they have brought something, comedy relief!

I was about to start looking at his profile to see if he mostly played heavy tanks but you saved me the effort really.

 

Another player that plays "easy" classes complaining about people playing skill based classes, nothing new.

I hardly see any, so they don't have much of an impact on the game as I have played it

Playing HTs you can basically forget about WV. 

Or most LTs in general, to be fair.

My guess would be that he's been spotted a few times more than usual, probably early in his TDs and arty, and hasn't moved, so has died for it. So now the game is 'ruined'. 

 

The game for too long now IMO has babied players, giving them easy low risk, low skill playstyles like arty, OP base camping spots for TDs, idiot proof heavies, corridor maps with no flanking fire etc. and players have got too comfortable with this and have not learned anything. If wheeled vehicles slightly threaten this comfy safe playstyle then that is only a good thing IMO.

 

If players leave so be it, survival of the fittest, its the way it should be, the overall playerbase would IMO be better and the standard of gameplay would be better if they game had remained more challenging with a steeper learning curve like it used to be.

Sounds about right.  Gotta learn to move when spotted.  Failure to learn that basic rule is how the game is "ruined".

As a TD player, I can honestly say that the wheelies haven't really changed anything.  Managed to kill one who was trying a circle of death on my Marder - that's a mistake he won't make again ...

Nothing changed honestly except for 2-3 wheeled tanks per game which Zig Zag around. If you take aggressive spotting bush you might be in a bad position now, but apart from that i dont see a big difference between small lights and those wheeled vehicles

I see no problem with wheeled vehicles. Sure, nobody asked for them, but let's get real - hype period isn't over yet and WV are already meh.

WVs are kinda hard to play, so majority of players just suck playing it. Usually they die within first three minutes of the battle.

Typically, WVs won't even reach enemy arty location.

I play SPGs a lot, and I think WVs are rather beneficial for arty, since they can just yolo and spot majority of enemies right from the start so I can shoot em.

Are they a real threat to SPGs? Definitely no. I shotgunned a dozen of wheelies so far, and got killed once or twice in return. Good deal.
