WoT hasn't been fun for a long time now and is unrecognizable from the game I used to like. I had more fun on the classic server during the April fools event than I'd had with live wot in a long time despite the arty spam, so I'd like for a classic server to come round again, but for good this time. Which patch in particular can be debated, but anything from 2013-2014 is good (7.0 is a bit too ancient for my taste). I know there are people who agree on this, and if this gets enough traction WG may be incentivized to make it happen. What do you guys think?

What is in it for WG to have a dedicated server that cannot possibly be upgraded, have new tanks added etc?  I suppose it could be on a monthly subscription but how many people are going to go for that?

Let's have a return to the classic forum. Everything is doom and gloom and complaints these days, it's been years since I've read a thread from someone demanding to be made a CC because they have half a dozen subscribers to their YouTube channel and are about to start streaming once they work out how to run a soundboard.

Even if it was for good. It would die out on some tiers at some point for them to bother keeping it up, vs now and then.

Let's not, supposedly the game is dieing so why divide the player base further?

It was also horrible IMO, looked horrible, played horrible and had poor gameplay.

Hopeless physics (remember crossing train tracks? or invisible walls near edges/cliffs?) Terrible spotting mechanics due to very slow server response rate meaning a tank could drive out of cover and be 10 meters from cover before they are spotted.  Terrible graphics, terrible sounds.  Even worse maps than now (Komarin and Dragon Ridge etc).  Also, remember that stupid noise whenever you got a critical hit on someone?

 

Do not miss those days...

 

Edit: And how did I forget the ridiculous match maker?!  KV vs E75?  No problem!  12 arties in one battle?  Sure thing.

No thanks. Played it two games and was already bored.

I asked eekaboo, when he was streaming a few days ago, when it was coming back - he said he wasn't aware of any plans to do so.

I liked it for variety, if it's a special mode I will play classic WOT gladly. When it's available all the time, I think I'd rather play the current version...

I dunno about that.... oppp north in Russia I'd be a bit more concerned about the (niet...it did not happen, situation normal da?...) radiation leak at Russian naval base, apparently some Boris hit a Missile too hard with a hammer (Russian style repair method) whilst trying to repair it...dohh!!!:facepalm:

Do people actually think it's just a matter of turning a switch on and off?

 

Even an old version needs to be updated when it comes to drivers and whatnot, and all that drains money.
