Lets outlet our biggest gameplay frustrations.

 

List three things:

 

  1. Your biggest flaw
  2. The games biggest flaw
  3. What gets you to stop playing?

 

I'll start us off:

 

  1. My biggest flaw is lack of concentration, I can play great for so long, but after a while I just start being lazy and stop concentrating on my play. This results in me getting toxic and I end up blaming my team, despite it being me who doesn't concentrate.
  2. Arty. The biggest flaw in WoT is arty. It no longer serves the purpose it was introduced to repel. Camping is FORCED by arty, not prevented.
  3. Ironically, winning too much (or too easily) I have this thing in my brain which prevents me from stopping when i'm playing terrible (or RNG and teams are treating me badly) If I win 5/6 in a row I get bored, especially if they're easy. The games are over too quick and they rarely feel satisfying.

1: Impatience.

2: RNG

3: Being handed stomp after stomp after stomp when I'm a hairs breadth from completing the mission - all completely 'random' ofc :sceptic:

1. Impatience

2. Piss poor balance of tanks in the same tier that WG seems completely unwilling to actually do anything. It's seems only to be for "create new / buff one line to make the next FofM" reasons. Not to mention the actually OP reward tanks, only to the best players, just because.

3. Constant 15-0, 15-5, etc rolfstomp wins or losses. Might be related to 2. or might not. Either way, it's getting tiresome.

1. Slow reaction times.

2. Lack of easy communication with team members. 

3. Those times when no matter how well I play (or think I play), everything goes wrong. The team melts away, or that unseen enemy TD ammo racks me early in the battle, or my OP arty only manages 23 hp dmg on that stationary KV-1 and then all my other shots miss by a mile. 2 or 3 battles like that and I stop and go and do something else.

1. Lack of situational awareness and tendency to tunnel vision

2. Gold ammo and everything revolving around it (such as armor that can only be defeated by gold ammo)

3. Too many losses in a row, I log out and either try again later or stop for the day

  • ranked battles "ranking" system is completely wrong
  • arty "stun effect" still the most idiotic stuff in the game
  • nerf chieftain turret
  • nerf or rework obj279 frontal hull armor
  • balance low tier vehicles
  • a lot of tech tree tanks need huge rebalance , nerf or buff
  • a lot of maps are rubbish and too little or unbalanced and badly designed
  • 2 arty per game is enoght , 1 per team

If you don't know who you are then this will, like the stock market, be an expensive and frustrating place to find out.

1 - Impatience

If the team doesn't move, doesn't shoot my spots, doesn't give a damn, I just do consecutive "mini-YOLOs" until I either have an advantage or my vehicle is destroyed.

 

2 - Tank Destroyers

Biggest bs in the game, hands down.

 

I can tolerate the disastrous map design.

I can ignore the blatant Soviet Bias.

I can look past the in-your-face cash-grab.

 

But I cannot, for the love of me, understand why do we have a vehicle class with camo, DPS, penetration and sometimes even armour AND mobility, offering absolutely no disadvantage whatsoever, with a skill cap almost as low as SPGs with the promise of extensive unavoidable damage and first hit initiative not only does not get rebalanced at all but also gets encouraged to the point there are anything between 3 to 7 of these units, per side. Nevermind the flak they don't get, which was exclusively kept to clickers but now shared by WVs, God knows why.

 

I kid you not, I am the most serene person you'll meet but one hit of these things make my blood boil. Makes my skin crawl. Disgusting. Recently, made 2.5K damage on the Skorp without being detected. Victims never saw it coming.

It simply should not be possible to deal the amount of damage a TD is able to (2/3+ MAX HP) in one shot with a DPM twice as high as a clicker. Period, end of story.

 

3 - Tank Destroyers

I didn't just stop playing for a few months. I actually stopped paying (was a P2P, almost 1K€;). Only reason I've been playing more was the expectations of a new game mode to take me off the abortions that are Random and Ranked Battles and because my old CO/XO came back to my old clan. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother.

 

I'm not saying to hell with TDs. But I've seen more class-wide rebalances to Clickers than to this vile cancer.

1. Lack of patience and the tendency to overextend/overexpose while knowing that i really really shouldn't.

 

2. The hugest and most stupid problem in this game: artillery.

 

3. See number 2.
