Into World of projects,blueprints,napkin drawings?because the tanks that saw active service and served in combat for years are misrepresented and overshadowed with tanks that saw neither of the afore mentioned things and worse thing of all are somehow better than it's real world counterparts despite that they have been either scrapped or just failed practically in every test that has been conducted on them like ie. obj430U,140,

Yep, and let's not forget arty sniping full speed tanks. They should really change the game's name to World of Bullsh**. 

Shame, really, becouse the base idea of it was absolutely brilliant.

Well, you certainly have a solid point. I do think its a shame, it really should be possible to at least keep the real tanks that were staples of real armies a bit more in the forefront of the game. I actually feel a bit guilty these days when I shoot at something like a Pz 4 or a Sherman on the other team, as I cannot help feeling they are endangered already.

Personally, I cannot really understand the obsession with "new content" either..I have loads of tanks in my stock,many of which i hardly ever play, and have got rid of loads more, and still there are whole nations I have never even touched.

It seems to me that a lot of the "real" tanks could be much better represented...for example, the Churchill in game hardly covers all the marks and interesting combinations in reality, let alone its incredible climbing capacity (which would make an interesting game difference if factored in) "real" two gun tanks can only have one gun, unlike the "concept" jobs.

I would also like to see far more actual cammos in game, or at least ones that look like actual schemes.

Sounds like you should play War Thunder.

 

WoT is an arcade game.

 

Goodbye. :honoring:

They can just rename the forum tbh. As it's not really a forum most of the time.

If anything it should be renamed to World of Missions... since that's what the game seems to be all about nowadays.

 

From the top of my head: Personal missions, daily missions, marathon missions, special missions, top of the tree missions, battle pass missions, frontline missions, steel hunter missions, clan war missions, twitch prime missions..

Oh I see...only your opinion matters. What makes you think I don't like it?....I think it's great!. Do you need a hug or something?

If i give you some 'Man love' (I know you would like that)...will you lay off the newcomers to the forum asking reasonable questions?

 

Just because you are bored of repeated quesions on this forum does not make them invalid....it just means you spend too much time here hence you think you control it . 

 

Leave em alone ffs (Not just this topic either)

Well said buddy,and yeah that's sad when historical tanks most of the time isn't even a threat on the battlefield(Tiger I,Tiger II),the game drowns in prototypes and they can do their stats as they please

So, newcomers have only 45K or 50K battles in your book....or do you have issues with big numbers?

I dont really care if the tanks we use are "real", but I do want them to feel "realistic". Like the Grille 15 just looks like it defies physics.
