Do you agree that current tier 10 meta sucks more than it ever did? It could be down to me not caring as I used to but man, do all games feel lame and boring/frustrating? Can you guys who play tier 10 regularly share your opinions?

i very rarely play 10s as it seems infested with players who have under 3 or 400 battles and shouldnt be above tier 4 or 5. I guess thats what you get when WG want them as high as possible as quick as possible in the hope they spend money.

It is boring.  The meta in team play is very consistent but some do throw a curve ball occasionally. However I prefer team play to randoms as my blood pressure can’t take it.

Maybe they should make tier 8 the highest tier and down tier all the tier 9 and 10 tanks, badger for instance 272 pen at tier ten, that is tier 8 levels, mine has gone now, I just see tier 10 as an endgame, you get the tier 10 just to elite your tier 9 vehicles, no fun up there thats for sure, but then no fun in the game period.

Your struggle for terms and words is amusing, but it has gone so another one not needing worrying about:D

I infer you're proficient in at least two languages, correct?

No, about 6 years ago, when there were always(exageration) 8 TDs +5 Arta in the match it was worse. Nobody ever moved, one mistake and you lost a huge chunk of your live.

I actually made these screenshots today:

The only things you pretty much see are literally:

-Russian tanks

-Super Conq

-183's fully loaded with HESH to ignore one's armor

-EBR's

-Otherwise often JP E-100's for their high alpha and pen, some ocassional autoloaders like Progetto's, TVP's or Kranvagn's

 

Seeing anything else that is not in that category is just a rare occurance.

 

Will clarify that I myself were contributing to the "Russian tanks" category. Only really play it to get more Battle Pass progress though. Otherwise I would play something more fun right away.

Avoid Tier 10 at any cost.

 

Avoid Tier 9, because you will meet alot of the same players as you do in Tier 10.

 

Avoid Tier 8, due to people with 100 matches buying premiums and roam like muppets.

 

You are basically left with tier 6 and 7 (and perhaps 5).

 

Tier 1 - 4 is not interesting due to obvious reasons.

 

The game has unfortunately turned into a s***show. If you don't believe it take a look at Claus Kellerman streams on Twitch. He is close to giving up the EU server.... the insanity in some of the matches are outstanding. You simply can't believe it's human beeings playing in some of those matches. I simply have no words and rest my case.... let the streams explain the rest.

seems to be that i am the only one enjoying it with STB1, Patton, Leo 1, Cent AX and AMX 105 xD. The biggest issue i think is the unbalanced teams, resulting in 15-3, 1-15, 4-15... but sometimes you find really interesting matches.

Tier 9 is where the fun ends at the high tiers for me... got persuaded by a friend to play a few round at Tier 10 the other day, but man, I was shocked be the retarded EBR, arty and high alpha TD's meta there. No fun at all.

 

Seems like Tier 10 is in an absurdly broken state at the moment.

Tier X is horrible. What other game would have an endgame where players can play without having mastered any basics in the game? 

 

Once you get to tier X you're not grinding any more. You're playing for the actual game. If there ever is a tier where you could start to implement some form of limited skill based matchmaking this is the tier. But with the integration with tier 8 and 9 to make games that's practically impossible. You could do it other ways by saying you could only play tier X once you have the Stug IV or some form of really basic achievement?

 

A few years ago tie X was fewer than 2% of all games. This week it's 2.16% of games. I doubt WG will be bothered about the gameplay, and our non-existent community team won't include that in their feedback.

 

They will just look at those metrics. More players playing tier X = hopefully more people buying premium accounts.

 

Gameplay is probably not even on their agenda.
