Nothing's really changed in the last few months.

 

You'll still see whine topics in the forums because whiners will always find something to cry about, but as a whole the only reason people keep playing is because they enjoy it. Even people coming here to cry must be enjoying the game otherwise they would go & play something else...There are countless PC games out there worth playing through if you don't enjoy WoT :)

AFAIK, it takes a lot more to develop maps as of 1.0 Than before. Couldn't say for sure. That and after 1.0, they focused a lot more on other modes like Frontline and Steel Hunter.

If you didn't like the game back then, you won't like it now either. Find something else to spend your time on.

That depends entirely on what your views are on "better" and what balance works for you. As some will say yes or now regardless.

A consensus is a dangerous thing, as it is a body of opinion about something on which there is no conclusive evidence.

There is a forum consensus that some tanks are OP and some UP, that some maps are good and others bad, and there is always a consensus that the game is much worse than it was in the good old days.

In the past there was consensus that the sun moved around the earth and that blood-letting was beneficial.

In my experience, consensus opinion is almost always wrong.

For things that we actually know, like 2+2=4, no one talks about consensus.

Well... 2+2=5 if you ask most youtube mathematicians. Or 4 for the rest. So... even that can variate. Tho me thinks that WOT is better now vs before. Tho it did walk backward too at one point. As 2018 is arguably the worst balance year in the game so far.

I wouldn't give a youtube mathematician the time of day

For an example of consensus idiocy, you are correct, one need look no further than the insanely stupid new matchmaker introduced a few years ago after much forum pleading and no doubt deep thought within WG.

It was immediately applauded as brilliant except by a few idiots like me who immediately said it was utterly stupid

Two years later the view had come round to it being utterly stupid, and it was binned
