I know I don't have fun alot of times. Every time I hit the battle button It feels like someone is sticking a needle in my eye.
Tryed playing my t34 last night.... Lost 11 times in a row.
Here is some of the pain...
Have a look at some of those matches. Ask yourself how much fun are the tier 5s having being trolled by CR printing tier 8 premmies.
MM is THE main reason I don't enjoy the game any more. There are many vehicles that are fun to play IF you end up with no worse than 1 tier above, or maybe a few 2 tiers on top. But the MM serves you a TON of them over and over. For me, playing a tier 5-6, at LEAST 50% of the tier 8s in battles are premmies.
That's the OTHER problem. The game is seemingly designed to force you to higher tiers (thanks MM) which then forces premium account OR premmy tier 8 (economic system) which then combines to smash people at lower tiers.
It's all arse about face. It seems to be about brutalising the player base until you have a small core of addicts spending absurd (in gaminig terms) amounts of money. Wide appeal fun and a much larger player base is apparently not a concern.
Incidentally, OP, you have a typo in the poll: option "2 in 20" I assume should be "2 in 10".
SO I enjoy maybe 1-2 in 10 these days. I rarely play much; perhaps 50 games a week if that?
I certainly don't spend money any more. In fact I have gold left from the heavy pre-order. Their failure to address single game modes and the awful MM, plus the overall sense I have of their design philosophy amd their utter disdain for an entire playing/paying market, means they are not a group I will spend any further money with.
Am looking forward to MWO. Let's see how THEY handle balance and a FTP model as a comparison.
