Well, in most situations there is indeed no "I" in team but in World of Tanks, if you rely on your team to win, you'll just get average results at best. So indedirectly if you want to win more battles then you lose/draw, you will need to do the work yourself.

And that is where the "I" in WoT teams comes into play, so "tims" really instead of "teams".....

 

When I play, I'm part of a 15 man tim trying to win the match and that works fine.

You guys really should have reworked  your “Ctrl C - Ctrl V” specials...
Change rewards or change missions or add something new... Just a little fresh air...:(
Last interesting special imo was that one “Highway rock blablabla...,
A bit hard to handle for usual tankers:D, but it was variety of rewards, not like SSED :(
And bring back Matchday WoT Football :izmena:

There is no “I” in team, but there is a “me”.  :teethhappy:

 

Out of the 93k games I have played, I think less than 100 were in a platoon (at the start of the match).  I have also noticed that matches have fewer platoons nowadays compared to the number of platoons years ago.

 

WG have been trying to encourage social gaming for years, and has always prioritised clans, teams and platoons over randoms.  However, I doubt most players are interested in being social (if they were, they would be out with friends, not playing online :facepalm: ;) and WG’s prioritisation slowly alienates players.

 

For example, when I see the unbalanced team reward tanks (object 902, T95/FV etc.), I am not motivated to team play or build a winning clan, I just accept that WG despise me and just want to exploit me whilst making it easier and easier for their favoured unicums and streamers to rofl-stomp everyone else.

 

That said, I do quite like enemy platoons, and go out of my way to ruin their experience by giving them extra attention; especially if I’m driving an SPG.  I encourage everyone to experience the satisfaction of taking out an entire platoon.  
 

I think “platoon killer” should be a hero reward. :trollface:

At least this special goes well together with the current Tank rewards if you have access to the T9/T10 part of the missions.

I am not playing tiers 5,6,7 at the moment and won't be until there is a sale. Because every single one of those tanks will require me to spend full price on equipment since their change. The least they should have given us after stripping most of our tanks of their equipment and making much incompatible is an equipment sale. We all know why they have not.

One of the weakest "specials" I've seen in a long while. (not including the lame XP Fever)

 

WG stop messing us about and give us an equipment discount.

Players never asked for Equip 2.0, you forced it on us then tell us we cant have a discount until the economy stabilises. This penny pinching just makes you look petty and mean spirited especially as Equip 2.0 promised us diversity and choice. Seems only to be the case if you pay full price atm.

With hundreds of tanks in my garage, I need a discount to even contemplate trying different builds or re-equiping all of my lower tier tanks.

 

Btw whenever you eventually have a discount don't you dare put it at 25%.

A few years ago, I used to enjoy this game hugely. Now I just see cynical changes and a procession of "new" tanks, which are all about WGs profits and not about the benefit of the players.

The "rewards" offered for missions in the game....well.....it's absurd to call them rewards. Over the last couple of years, WG have steadily moved all of the worthwhile "rewards" away from being mission based and into the Premium Shop.

There was a time when the paying player of average skill could buy items to improve their impact in the game and these were not available for in-game currency. Now there are the elite few, financed by clan wars, who pay nothing for these items and perks, while the rest of us, when we choose to pay hard-earned cash, get very little in return.

it might be nice if WG remembered who the customer is - that's if they ever knew in the first place - but don't hold your breath.

Seriously you have a ww2 German officer clasping hands with a French officer of the same period in a special called "Come Together?

 

I guess we are talking about Vichy France now, curious why you didn't just make the French officer Marshal Philippe Pétain?

 

By the way seeing as Wargaming seems to be historically illiterate the last time the Germans and the French came together 75,000 French jews were rounded up and sent to concentration camps where 72,500 of them died. 

 

You forgot to change the artwork in combat intelligence all a bit awkward.
