I noticing there is less and less player online even though WG has taken good steps to prevent it by;

 

  • Crewskins
  • Decals
  • Putting leffe arty and ebr prem tank on sale
  • giving klanplayers fv4201/t95  & obj 907
  • Making improved equipment more acessable for klanplayers, they earn more bonds
  • Nerfing arty
  • Female crews
  • Making more prem tanks
  • Promising to fix e100 and is4 a year ago
  • Hiring twitch royalty to play the game (I guess they just took the money and ran, dont see them play anymore)
  • Wheeled tanks + promising more of them
  • Battle royale mode (many claimed much cheating)
  • and much more

I can understand why players are leaving the game in hordes since its continuessly improved, just see what the lastest patch gave us. People should be more loyal to the game.

The game is nine years old and people get bored and move on to newer games....that is part of the problem too. The gaming world is not a static place.

They don't fix stuff which should be sorted

 

Frontline helps to relieve the insanity and boredom of corridor map randoms but is only one week a month

Map pinging has not been sorted in a decade and drives people NUTS

 

I can't be bothered mentioning the rest of it because that's a waste of my time

 

off back to shooting tonks

in my case I tried to play the game yesterday, but the game keeps crashing when I try to load a battle. (Total vanilla client) So, there you got another reason of the drop of players. If one needs to struggle to make the game work properly doesn't really worths it.

If you look at the actual numbers from WoT-news active player held up pretty well this year compared with the preceding years. In no small part due to the FL grind i would have thought, something that won't be anywhere near as effective next year.

Destiny 2 went free to play,  Borderlands 3 was released, it was sunny for a few days. the rugby is on, things are getting interesting with the Trump Impeachment.  There are a great many reasons people are not playing, not all of which have anything to do with the game itself.  Most games have a shelf life.  New games come out, peoples interests change, people get burned out.  It happens. 

 

WG's developers and marketeers will do the best they can to ensure retention and new player attraction.  Those approaches may not seem appropriate to some.  The thing is, us individuals looking in cannot know.  We do not have access to the information WG has.  Everybody has a pet peeve and mini axe to grind.  All any developer can do is try to keep 51% of its customers happy and not annoy the malcontents as little as possible.

Its curious that they've never done a game where everyone gets exactly the same tank

Ranked randoms kinda thing, to give players some relief from the rage inducing aspects of the game

 

Add in mods-hax tank-inequality bad-MM multiple-artys and a Troll-RNG and you get a lot of not very happy players

Sounds more like a "you" problem tbh.

Loyalty is a 2 way street and WoT have a poor track record

 

They just sold that mutant.... again

They are now after preferential MM

 

Can't be bothered citing more examples

  • Crewskins Not really a big thing
  • Decals something good, but doesn't fix the biggest problems in any way
  • Putting leffe arty and ebr prem tank on sale Leffe for sale is a good thing?
  • giving klanplayers fv4201/t95  & obj 907 the best players get very strong tanks and play against weaker players in their f2p tanks, doesn't sound like fun to me
  • Making improved equipment more acessable for klanplayers, they earn more bonds again, the best players got even better
  • Nerfing arty arty is still annoying AF
  • Female crews something good
  • Making more prem tanks if only they were balanced
  • Promising to fix e100 and is4 a year ago a year ago and still nothing has happened (although the IS-4 might be replaced soon)
  • Hiring twitch royalty to play the game (I guess they just took the money and ran, dont see them play anymore) you already stated the problem
  • Wheeled tanks + promising more of them not everyone likes to play against them, they can be annoying AF
  • Battle royale mode (many claimed much cheating) didn't play, can't say anything about that
  • and much more

Many things have changed and much new content has been added, but that doesn't mean the game got better
