Hello.

My name is Daniel, i played world of tanks from 2011 - 2018, since the update 7.5

I quit this game mainly because of the frustration of being not listened to as a community back then.

The main reasons i quit are, from the top to the bottom:

1. 3-5-7 Matchmaking, it what caused tier 8 to be a pain, 90% of the time

2. Overpowered premium tanks, IS 3A, Defender, Patriot, Skorpion, you name it.

3. Overpowered Russian tanks, the main one being the obj 268 4 which after its release was the breaking point for me, and when i tried to come back the obj 279 appeared.

4. No notable tank buffs to American, German, French tanks. The only one i remember is M48 patton buff. Anything about tier 5 in the German tech tree is trash. In the American tree T32,M103,T110E5 are pure hot garbage, and those were my 3 most favourite tanks when they were somewhat balanced.

5. Gold ammo spammers, if you don't join them you're handicapped.

6. Artillery in general with and without stun mechanics.

7. Japanese heavies.

I do not know what has been fixed, reworked, or got better, but one thing is true.

The lack of communication and changes for YEARS is what caused this game to die out slowly but surely from me, and many many more.

It got to a point where me being in training at the army is less stressful than World of Tanks.

1) MM got reworked. Now it's far better as has more templates and also the tier distribution is more balanced.

2) OP premium tanks are, obviously, still there.

3) 268v4 got nerfed and now, while still strong, is not enjoyable to play so is far less used.

4) All those tech tree have good tanks: Maus, and Leo1 (yes got buffed and now is fine) for german in example. 

5) Ammo rebalance is on sandbox on those months.

6) On Sandbox too

7) HE gun nerfed and AP gun buffed.

They made HE guns for the T9/T10 japanese tanks obsolete.Other then that no reason to come back :trollface:.

No reason to feel stressed playing WoT,our health is above everything.

MM has been improved, mainly by the introduction of single tier games and Japanese heavies aren't what they were, other than that you'll be seeing similar stuff.

jap heavies have basically disappeared, but then there's more chieftains and 279(e) firing nothing but skill lol

 

the rest is still essentially as it was, mm is marginally better

Yes, everything has changed. Now we have an OP British heavy tank instead of a Russian or a Japanese one. It's a great opportunity to come back if you still hate Japan or Russia.

MM is okay - skill balance is most of the bad though

 

Obj 268 v4 was nerfed, non issue now

 

Jap heavies were nerfed theyre now okay i guess

 

everthing else on your list remains - and patton m48 is still garbage

I quit about this time last year, 3-5-7 MM was pure frustration for me, playing mostly T6 and 8.

 

Came back about a month ago, MM is a lot better now, seems ( yeah i know "feels" )  a lot better now, more same tier, +1 / -1 matches. Still as many one sided games but i doubt that will change.

 

Still see Defenders, IS3A's etc but not in the same numbers as when they were "new2 content.

 

I plan to carry on playing unless the new double barrelled Russian heavys break game balance at T8.

 

Why no German double barrelled tank btw? Should be a T6 on a Pz IVH chassis with dual 37mm Auto loaders, as they actually produced a limited number of these at the end of WWII

Well if it makes you feel better, these tanks are no longer OP.

 

It's because WG released even better and more OP premium tanks.

Fortunately, I qualify in both categories.

The biggest improvement, I think, in recent years, was binning the idiotic new 357 MM.

I find it incredible that WG a) introduced it; and b) kept it in place for so long when it was immediately obvious that it was a disaster, as some of us said at the time.

But at least they eventually recognised and sorted out their mistake.

As the game currently stands I would say that it is pretty decent.

To the OP.

 

All these things you listed are less annoying, then the wheeled vehicles added to the game.

Spotted in 3..2..1....  oh and if you have a slow turretless TD. :trollface:
