and why I play much less than I used to.......

 

The amount of bots and unbalanced games is horrendous, watch this after game report. Its a common game result to me. Watch tiers and perfomance of my allies.

You lost that one because your Jageroo did 0 damage.

You lost because they had 3 good arties.
08:47 Added after 0 minutes
So they had better spot.

Exactly.

 

That's one of the reasons why I spend less time playing this game as well.

 

It's like you launch the game and press "BATTLE" button just to become frustrated for the rest of the day...

 

I play less than 2 hours per day. Mostly.

 

Sometimes even less because game becomes toxic, frustrating and not fun at all...

There's a lack of teamwork in randoms which frustrates the game

The developers seem to have tried to force things via maps like himmlesdorf where we all spawn almost on top of each other and camping is discouraged/impossible, or a big open map where camping is easy and attacking without getting creamed is almost impossible

 

Frontline has been hugely successful because it lets you do your own thing, camp or attack, there's enough map variation and scope to do both, plus the time limit focuses minds

More team mates means a better chance of team players working together

Respawning helps too because it lets you sacrifice yourself without getting totally kicked out of the game

 

The randoms definitely limit gameplay and need sorting out, their biggest asset is harvesting credits and XP instead of game enjoyment

stats don't lie. EU server has lost like 20-23% of it's player base over time. NA server lost loads as well, that's why they get so much specials now to keep players in the game.

Exactly. Players leave because of a single bad game. Much usefulness, much wow.

 

@Moderators: lock and junk please.

But the stats also do not tell you why players have left. WoT has been around for over 8 years, it's perfectly normal for people to lose interest over time and for a myriad of reasons.

I don't know where that's based on, but based on actual stats there have been a lot of players leaving the game. I doubt you lose 20% of your players all because of losing a few games. QB made a video about it and used stats from a third party website.

For the same reason people ought to justify their thoughts to anyone: because those thoughts are worthless otherwise. Reality isn't a democracy, it doesn't care about your opinion. Games like the OP posts have been around since the start of WoT so claiming they are now suddenty the prime or even only cause of the drop in the playerbase is silly.

I am sure players have left over time, as is normal with any (online) game around for over 8 years. The thread OP created is just a non-constructive whine thread though, about bad performing team players which we all get, and have been around since the beginning.

 

Oh and I really do not care about QB video's one way or another. Especially when it's just a generic pointer that he made one, without actually providing any details. If it's relevant, then explain how. I'm not going to search for it, or watch it.

Ignore the personal flamers and stick to the OP subject, don't waste your time arguing with them, totally ignore them

Yes, terrible, all these specials are impacting my life, I spend more time playing than I should spend on family time and taking care of other real-life matters...it's absolutely tragic I tell ya! :(

Just how long would you be playing per day if you weren't frustrated by the games / teams?

 

I'm lucky if I have 2 hours per week (slight exaggeration).  If I wasted 2 hours (or sometimes less) a day on something "toxic and frustrating" I'd be mad too.

 

I work at least 8 hours a day and it's certain that if it was toxic and frustrating I'd find another job.  Coming back to play 2 hours on a frustrating game (something I can choose a lot more easily), when there are a lot more games out there to choose from  ????

Yep players are leaving the game, but its a very old game and that's what happens to games after years.

Still incredibly popular and years and years away from running out of players.

 

Changes they have made make players leave.

True

ANY changes or lack of changes make players leave, make some unhappy and others happy make some rejoin,

If they had a poll about what changes were needed to make the game better and they made those changes.

There would be a post the next day saying how stupid those changes were.

 

Random games its in the name random if you are lucky you win if not you lose.

Sometimes I get idiots on my team sometimes I am the idiot on my team and sometimes the idiots are on the other team or maybe both teams.

Don't play randoms or platoon up with none idiots to boost your chances.

Maybe he had no spots? Or maybe he sat at the wrong spots. Maybe he got isolated by their meds and lights with no help. That image doesn't even tell half the story. 

 

Either way, even with the "perfect" team balance systems. Stuff like this will happen. Just like camping fails and lemmings. Tho less often. But they won't go away. As team class balance is equally a big factor for it at times even with skill. Or both. As one team having heaviums vs super heavies. An their HT's goes the med lane with the meds and it's 7-0 before you know it. And the slower larger tanks can't react in time. And by the looks of it if I were to guess. Their meds and lights were more aggressive, or went in a pack. And swamred one flank before they could react.

Maybe because of the +2 mm, OP premium tanks (At the beginning they said that the prem tank would never be stronger then the tech tree, now it's just reverse or sell clearly broken tanks such as LEFH) , Arty which can damage you for a nice 300 dmg just by splashing you, corridor maps, blatant favoritism towards a certain nation in particular, discouraging aggressive maneuvers  tanks to TD's that wipe out 70% of your hp in one shot using HE shells and arty. I mean take your pick, they know why they are losing players.
