Nope not at all but you either have the choice to play or not play reagrdless of how you feel. Personally I feel the game is in a dire place but I still click on that battle. I just accept it.

It's always had the potential to be so much more, bigger and better whilst still appealing to the different demographics casual players, competitive guys, try hards and plonk abouts.

 

The company consistantly make ill thought out decisions regarding game balance, customer treatment, clarity of communication and end user satisfaction, there is more than one way to skin a cat.

 

They took out team battles rather than promote this mode, and look how many people are enjoying the 7v7 (which also was silly to have at tier 10 imo, to costly to play without running a premium account and many people don't have the 10 tanks or developed crews if using rentals, tier 7 might have been a nice change).  Many players weren't even aware the TB mode existed, similar with strongholds at the moment there are never any videos or specials highlighting this other mode as an alternative to randoms for players dont currently play it.  The strongholds also only run from lunchtim to 1am whre as you could team battle anytime aslong as there were other teams around.

 

Clan wars events happen, but there is scant information on how to get started, or for inexperienced clans with lower numbers allowing them to compete at tier 6 / 8 rather than trying to field a 15 strong team with a variety of tier 10's.

 

Later this year they will take out some lower tier tanks fro teh tech trees further alienating end users. 

 

Rather than more strictly punish the abusers of team damage and imnprove the reporting system, they remove the mechanic completely loosing some of the immersive risk reward decisions about taking a shot / using the enemy to shield your tank from his team etc.

 

Power crept often obsolete tech tree tanks...

 

Introduction of ridiculously out of balanced tanks like the Obj279, 430u and elaving them unerfed/adjusted for far too long, having some of the cw reward tanks perform better than tech tree stable mates rather than just have slightly different attributes or exclusivenes coming in models looks only.

 

Bots and players regularly being afk to leach xp have been around for years.

 

Destruction mods for mini maps and other "advantage/cheat" programs are still around.

 

Too many little advantages like food and improved equipment that stack the deck for those that either pay for premium or play a lot to afford them.

 

MM - seems generally ok from my perspective, limiting arty to two per team would be one change I'd make though.

 

Premium ammo - limit its loadout quantity and potentialy reduce it's alpha damage value.

 

Prices of premium tanks personally I'd reduce from £25-40 to around £10-25, over the years I would have spent more cash overall if they were cheaper.  This would also be dependant on prems NOT being better than tech tree's and just giving the original advantage of generating credits and sharing crews.

 

Carrots and donkeys, the current culture of overloading players with many overlaping, grindy events has got out of hand.  It's not a direction I like.

 

Imbalanced game which just could be so much more with the right team behind it....

If a reasonable alternative would pop up I would jump the ship in a heartbeat, but alas there is no other arcade tank game that would compete with WOT so here I am.

Given the fact that this game (+ WoWs and WoWp) seems to be able to keep me entertained for a good part of the last 9 years or so I'd be inclined to answer the question by OP as a 'Yes'...

 

There's plenty of things I'd like to see changed but overall It's one of the best games I've played over the last 30 years (yeah, I still have fond memories of the Commodore 64).

not happy with this unfair game at all.

russian tanks are too overpovered and you cant decently play this game any more.

 

worgaming makes  1 new russian tank per weak, it is not even funny any more.

they are so stupid that they still think we are not aware of it.

I've been playng for 18 months only, a latecomer to the game. It's great. I'm in an active clan who help, support and offer training. I have made some good online friends. Mediocre player but I still have those battles where I go "wow, magic". The game is about enjoyment and that is what it gives me 90% of the time. Everything else is just detail so yes, it's a great game.

 

As for money, don't spend if you don't want to.

WG do nothing about bots, balance is a joke, some tanks are useless, some are ridiculously OP, they don't listen to feedback.

 

The only person who is happy with this "service" is the moderator with 20k games and 5k messages invested in this garbage.

I love the game and have since 2013, but i have to take more and longer breaks to not start hating.
Played during christmas period, but uninstalled when it ended 14th of January.
If i stay away for a few months the game feels more fresh and enjoyable again.
 

The MM is OK, better than the original 3-5-7, but its way too harsh on platooning and tier 6.
Dont care about the ammo people use, if i get hit i have done something wrong in the first place.
I always switch to premium ammo when i get under 50% HP,  i face +2 tier tanks or just to make sure i do damage before i go down.
Maps are an issue, we need more maps like Steppes nothing like Minsk, honestly i dont think they know how to do it anymore.

if I hated the game as much as OP seems to with all the poorly written rage threads they keep creating, id have found a new game a long time ago....

 

I still enjoy the game, and that's all that a game is made for. Sure there are issues that could well be addressed, and new things such as more maps, but there isn't a game in existence that has nothing wrong with it or nothing that could be improved upon.

All good here. Things have improved a lot and I like.

 

Imho they could bring back FF but have a forgive function and harsher penalties for the wallies out there.

 

Marathons can be a little of a pain but that's my issue. After all WG are giving a tank away for free so you should have to work for it.

You've never played it decently!

 

Personally I just got bored of the game and play it much less now. Bored of the grind, bored of the utterly confused mess that are missions, specials etc which provided so many objectives as to render few of the identifiable. But I still enjoy the odd session. The trouble is that I am now much less experienced and more out of practice due to irregular and infrequent sessions and my own lack of performance hinders my enjoyment and reduces my desire to play still further.

 

Edit:

 

The fact is that being a casual player in WoT is not a very satisfactory experience.

I never realised how important the grind was to my enjoyment of the game until I got bored of doing them. It gives that element of just a few more battles and I can unlock that engine and then you think let’s make a start on the turret or gun. It the equivalent of just a few more turns in Civ so you can research or build X.

Had nearly a whole month since I replied "Yes" and even though I do agree with Gruff re grindy events I still keep coming back for more.

Perhaps the question should be why do we still play?

I think it´s the mixture between being a free game for some and a subscription game for others that creates problems. I feel that most of the time WG treats the player base as if everyone is playing a free game. If everyone was paying a subscription like with many other games I think the pressure would be more constant on WG to behave like a company with paying customers.

I want to play a tank game, they offer a decent tank game for me to play, ..so, yes.

 

Do I get a month's supply of toilet rolls for completion of this survey ?

As a free service? Sure! Free is always free.

As a paid service? Absolutely not. Broken crap ain't worth real money.
