Changes that don't come are given a reason why and things balanced in a way are given a reason why. In the whole time of the game, ever. At no point was there a dicussion, point or proof from anyone on rigging, ever. Not once. On the contrary multiple statements and points of evidence from players proving otherwise. You can acknowledge the truth or not, but insulting me as lying to you is not something that will be tolerated on the forums. 

 

If you are clued-in with the development team then explain the blatant lies about the new British LT line which was pushed by the community teams.

I'm perfectly willing to accept that proven scumbags are scumbags. I'm also willing to accept that since there are some uncovered scumbags there are probably going to be scumbags who remain hidden. But I'm not going to ascribe scumbaggery to a specific entity without proof. 

 

Proof is so 2015, get with the times :P

It seems the moderators sometimes might completely remove posts in an attempt to keep a thread vaguely on topic.  If you want to avoid this try to keep comments on topic & constructive.  I'm not saying yours wasn't, but that's been my experience.

They dont remove posts to keep it on topic, they remove posts to keep the topic theirs.

 

Its a difference.

Well now, I'm completely intrigued as to what that post possibly have contained that could transfer ownership of the forum :amazed:

 

Bad news dude, Stalin died & if posts break the forum rules we all agreed to follow, then they're perfectly entitled to remove them without being accused of such.

 

Actually scratch all that, they just closed another arty thread.  Censorship!!! :izmena:

Not really, came back recently just to find the game has power creeped to the extreme and now more or less fully pay to win.

 

Frontline might have kept me but thats turned out to be a hot steaming turd as well, so ya...

No, I’m not. Took a longish break and tried this Frontline thingy. It is kinda good to see how bad this game has become. The RNG is hilarious, it is so easy to notice when the switch is on the good side when every snapshot connects and you survive against all odds with 1 HP left and when the switch is on the bad side when a low roll is promptly followed by a godawful RNG miss.

I’m literally laughing my [edited]off. Too bad that this ”game” was once good.

Welp, I'm on a break myself right now. Been so for a month. WoT remains a fun game for me nevertheless. Obviously I'm on a break because certain things must be taken care of IRL, not because I can't be bothered with the game. 

I intend to get better at the game and eventually explore the competitive gameplay modes and more platooning and stuff. I believe that with WoT, you've got to give yourself a challenge; I play only with standard rounds, for example. It makes my experience a little more interesting.

As for RNG; as eekeeboo said, if we didn't have it this game would be very boring. I guess you could consider WoT as being a game with variable difficulty; sometimes it can be on "Easy" mode, other times it can be on "Impossible" mode. Unicums are those who manage to do well whatever the circumstances are.

 

P.S. To all those complaining about impossible penetrations and the like, get the Battle Hits mod; it's definitely worth knowing exactly where your shells impacted and where enemy shells struck your tank. It's always shed some much-needed light on frustrating in-game performances (like a double bounce off the front of a WT auf Pz. IV)

Well thanks for that, your post gave me a good laugh as well.  RNG is pretty much the only thing they've never changed at all, yet now it's made a good game bad?

Suggesting that you should receive an imaginary award for your imaginary complaint wasn't inflammatory in the slightest.

 

You suggesting that I was incapable of feeding myself?

 

If you can't understand the difference, then maybe you shouldn't be posting on a forum where there are rules.

Not really. 90% of the games are 15-2 or 2-15 and last few minutes. I guess people like that since they are playing and dont want mm to change. I dont, but still havent found another game to supstitute this one.

If you're not having fun then go and find something to do that IS fun

Good quality flounce though, you even managed to entice the tin foil milliners out of their lairs

I have to add that up till tier 8 I was having fun. but now I have a tier 9 its just gold spam and cash loss. I don't mind only making say 1k per game but I had about 29 games at tier 9 and only won 8 and lost more cash than I made. Think I might be retraining my crew back to to tier 8. I did start go to a new line and start at tier 2/3 and that's the same people with 20 to 130k game just spamming gold ammo. for new player under 2k game its not that much fun and for a new player seeing that its going to turn them away.

One of the changes for you that you consider wrong was the mm change? As from my experience in the community and talking to the player base on so many areas. "Fix mm" was one of the most spammed statements 

 

So you guys consider you've fixed the MM? Well, you didn't. You have merely patched it, there's still a lot of work to be done on it until it can be considered ok. And even that patch was heavily overdue, since you have created the problem yourselves, with the "brilliant" idea of the 3-5-7 template. That was what completely broke the MM, and it took you forever to admit there was a problem to begin with, then even longer to actually do something about it.

And yeah, "fix the MM" was one of the most spammed statements, while "fix/remove artillery" was the most spammed statement. What have you done about that? NOTHING AT ALL. Zip. Nada. Still you have the nerve to pretend you were/are listening to the playerbase. Really?

Further to this with the onyoing changes to ammo and hp pools. When people ask for ammo to be looked at and for low tier games to be made fun and so forth. These are not irrelevant things. These are things you probably personally don't care about. But a great many others do. 

 

Gold ammo still isn't fixed, so nothing to brag about there. The "ongoing changes" might take forever to actually go live, be implemented wrongly or simply completely shelved at some point, in true WG fashion. We'll talk about it when it's done, if it ever will be.

As for low tier games to be made fun... they weren't made fun. The M44 is still there, the Lefefefe is still there, and arty still horribly breaks lower tier games. What did you do about it? NOTHING AT ALL. So with all due respect, what are you talking about?

For more concise message =rigging does not exist. 

 

The game feels rigged. I'm not saying it actually is rigged, but it definitely feels so. Which is a problem in itself. If people feel that the game is rigged, they'll just leave at some point, becouse it does feel frustrating and unfair.

You can state that it's not rigged all you want, it's not enough of an argument. Volkswagen would have also stated that their cars' CO2 emission values weren't rigged. Well, surprise, as it turned out they actually were rigged.

You can't expect people to just take your word for it, especially given your record (as a company, i mean, not you personally). But you could at least lower the insanely stupid 50% RNG range to 20% (as in +/-10%) and that would make the game enjoyable enough to not feel that rigged anymore.
