Just seen todays numbers and as of 15:51 GMT there are 73360 across both servers.

:ohmy:

Now, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't a weekend, especially a x4, see at least that number on each server?

:child:

That being the case, how does it affect gameplay?

:unsure:

Also getting towards the end of the month so people have probably been paid recently and are out doing stuff for the weekend

All anecdotal ofc, I have no evidence to back up my claims.

Maybe someone has a chart somewhere?

Also, it seems to be x4 day today, little reason to bother cause that always spells disaster (at least for me).

People is prolly just tired of the waiting times before the countdown starts. I usually wait 10-30 up 240 sec outside the normal cd, and then im not considering those times I play arty. I guess the MM algortim is to complicated for the server hardware so the burn times are longer. And anyways that 30 sec cd before battle should be 10 secs, people should have computer|s that can load faster now. We are beyond 2011 in most og europe now.

The longer they keep broken mechanics like arty and op tanks like 279 and defender in the game, the more people are going to leave. Simple as that.

Ok, the obvious question.

How would you have the game to suit your needs?

You've already agreed on my solution about arty so you know it. Basic nerf on op tanks is also simple solution.

So we all get to do what you want?

Sounds fair.

None of what I said points anything you just said. Exactly like last time you tried to "get it right" and completely missed the point.

If you look at the unofficial server stats you will see that this weekend is when the player numbers increase up until around February. As can been seen below, in each year this follows the same trend. However, in each same period the numbers are lower and lower year on year.
