Last played as the 1st Frontline of the year landed, thinking about returning, well at least until WoW Classic launches at the end of August.

 

How's MM now 3/5/7 isn't the default template? ( 3/5/7 was the main reason I stopped playing.)

Are T6 /  T8 more enjoyable now?

 

Logged in  to the game last night - seems to be loads of new crew training vouchers, and wtf are Blueprints ?

MM is improved, I find all tiers are better. 6 & 8 are also fine now. 

You can simply ignore blueprints, pointless imo.

Most important change are crew books, basically you can buy better crews for credits. First skill is cheap, next start to get expensive.

I wouldn't bother.

 

If you left because of 3/5/7 you'll soon be unhappy again.

 

3/5/7 meant that there were never very many higher tier tanks on the enemy team.  Now it's not uncommon for there to be 4 or 5 tanks 2 tiers higher than you.

 

You'll be just as unhappy with the other things you previously disliked

Tier 8 is much more playable than it previously was for me.

I came back also. I myself like the new premium benefits...one of the best changes they did. But there is still space for more. Can t say playing feels better or worse...it s wot with its ups and downs. I would say: check your fun level...if it feels like work ...stop...

Blueprints reduce the amount of exp needed to research a tank - I guess they'd be useful to newer players, but if like me you have big lumps of a tech tree researched, then the ones left are the ones you're not interested in anway!

 

New MM seems better at tier 5, 6 can still be brutal, 7 seems ok and I don't play tier 8 any more so can't comment on that - queues to get into battles seem generally longer but I don't know if that's just "feels" on my part... :)

12mil credits (6 books) and you basically go from a crew with only 100% on the major qualification to a crew with 3 skills completed.

I would say give it a try.

Check the doomsayers and see if they are still playing. If they are, ask yourself why they advise you against it but still play it themselves. If they still play then maybe it isn't as bad as they would have you believe. 

In the end, only you can decide if you enjoy playing it.

I've returned after 1.5 years and enjoy it, but just remind yourself to play for fun, and not for any other reason.

X ] - Crap Maps - Literally, the root of all evil.

 

X ] - OP Premiums - And reward ones too

 

[  ] - Wheeled Vehicles

 

X ] - Tank balance - Very, VERY poor.

 

X ] - Team Balance - Personal efforts are brought to naught.

 

X ] - No New Maps - Not that it matters since new ones would still be favouring HTs over all other classes.

 

[  ] - Weekend specials

 

[  ] - Mid week specials

 

[  ] - Marathon Grinds

 

X ] - Personal Missions - Still have the "Block X damage" with HTs which is nonsense with the corridor map design, overbuffed armour meta that encourages a goldfest  shower spam

 

X ] - Frontlines - Used to be great. Now, not so much. Too grindy and the rewards are not worth the effort.

 

X ] - HomeFront - Too grindy, you start on a small map, limited fuel for no valid reason, overall a good idea but poorly implemented, against DE.

 

X ] - Clan Wars - Too biased to the "top clans". CWs are an oligarchy.

 

[  ] - CW Reward Tanks

 

[ X ] - Strongholds - Very inactive

 

 

No wonder...

Just returned myself just over a month ago now.

 

Looking at how the game is i wont be renewing my premium subscription and i wouldn't recommend anyone else wasting their time on this game.

 

WG just let it run like the wild west ... afking, botting, abuse, ramming own team, some dodgy shooting from people .... the list goes on.

 

Such a shame as it was once a great game to play.

 

 

Also forgot about I'm sick of my tier 6 tank been pitched against tier 8's every match.

I took a break around the same time you did, came back a couple weeks ago and to be honest, tier 8 is probably in the best place it's been for a long time. Tier 9 is still phun, and you can grind trash tier 8s in frontline. Also the new perm xp bonus and cred bonus is a nice touch.

 

Still get 3min games though but I say overall the game is so much better than it was at the beginning of the year. But at the end of the day it's just my opinion so have a few games, see what you think.

Came back after 2 years break about a year ago and I still enjoy the game. Few couple of months I was surprised, how much worse I have gotten (or how much the general gameplay has improved), but I am slowly climbing to skill level I was before I took that break (still far from that).

 

There are still games, where you cant do anything, but usually if you cant win, you can do well yourself at least. Unless you screw up, which I do a lot :D
