Wow, 10 glorious years. An anniversary of this magnitude certainly calls for a celebration! Instead WG chooses to find new ways to fleece the very people responsible for their success with the equipment debacle, gutting the Italian tech tree (that nobody asked for), NOT meaningfully nerfing the 430U or the Ebolamobiles (as  promised) and yet buffing the Progetto 46 and, finally, nerfing the crap out of bond income for anything but Tier X (which will cause people to play more broken tier X battles and, shockingly, use more creds and line WG's pockets further). Yup, this is some celebration, can't wait to see what happens at year 15 (if WG is still around); perhaps a free cavity search for every player? Maybe at the holidays this year the "loot" boxes will randomly take gold from you, I can actually see this happening. 

 

The equipment changes wouldn't have been bad if the completely broken "commander's vision system" wasn't going to be implemented and people weren't going to get hosed on conversions. More class customization is always welcome if done right but, as usual, WG goes for $$ over everything instead of focusing on improving their aging game. I've played this game for quite a while and have never been more disgusted w/this game and the devs than I currently am. I don't know if i'll continue to play or not but I certainly won't give WG another dime.

 

I'm sure this post will get removed soon. Have a great day all!

Cavity search sounds interesting. Not sure I could wait 5 years for it though I am kind of wanting it right away. Bit of a lottery though on who conducts the search.. it could be one of those delicious tankfest girls :girl:or it might end up being Victor Kislyi:ohmy:

either way where do I sign?

I will only pop in for 5 minutes to get my slice of cake.

Got no present for WG as they have no future, way past it.

To be fair it has been and still is a pretty decent game which is why I am still playing it.

So you're mad that they nerfed Italians that did include the Progetto 46, but also that they did not do the 46? See the nobody you are talking about is the RU server, or 80% of the players. They have been up in arms about the "broken" Italians for ages. So WG suggested some balance changes that inc a premium. And you know how players get when they want to touch their premiums. So they undid it there. But could not leave it as is. Because if they did, the 12.5% rammer could still be used, along with a 8.5% vent on slot one. Vs adding it as a hidden tool locked at 10%. You see the difference? Sure you can add more top speed to it etc. But the DPM won't be way higher with vs what it can be now, but it won't be less either. And that's good in my book.

So you stuck around for 9 years to play a mediocre game?

Just salty personally, since the game has so much more potential.

I blame 2020. This year has gone from bad to worse and it just keeps going. Can't wait for it to end, but who knows?...maybe 2021 will be even worse!

The Mousetrap was never much of a play but has been running for nearly 70 years, even though everyone knows whodunnit.

I suspect that WG have found a niche with WoT that means it will last an awful lot longer than people here think

And I have been reading in the forum about how it is on its last legs for years and years

In what way is it "completely broken"?

 

Your targets will lose max 20% of their camo level, so something with 50% will have 40%.  I think it's been over hyped tbh.

 

And is...

I don't speak Russian so cannot help wondering if "celebrating ten glorious years" cannot be translated as "rape, pillage and a damned good kicking"?
