I think nothing has been more frustrating in this game then arty, especially higher tier.  I'm just talking about playing it, not getting hit by it.

People put time and money into a product that performs so poorly.  

 

Tried fixing it by making it absurd.  But it still CAN do huge damage.  Maybe.  But the accuracy is so whacked you can do zero damage or thousands of damage.  

If you're going to have such crazy dispersion/RNG... then make the reload faster and damage way less.  Getting taps on the turret isn't fun, but getting

one-shot not only leaves the tanker in stunned silence, but the arty player too because it so rarely happens.  

 

And if you can't lower the insane damage + buff the reload... then take this product off the market.  Lock the lines to new players.

And offer an incentive for players to sell their arty.  Whether gold/silver/poor performing premium/or even a regular tank that doesn't get much attention.

Nobody would complain about getting arty off the streets.

 

Make people feel good about you before they buy, during purchase, and after purchase and they will reward you with loyalty. But let any of these crucial elements fail and customers will come to question themselves first but then you second. And if they have been made to feel a fool, they will blame you. Rewarding you with negative feedback, complaints to friends and significant long term damage to your business.

Great suggestion why don't everyone do what you suggest and so WG can shut down the servers.

You do know that there a a absurdly larger number of players who do't have the skills, don't have any friends (and too introverted) to play any competitive mode that rewards them with gold

 

Sure you're playing it the way that is most cost effective by using your skills to get the free stuff. But those other players can't and have to buy gold for everything. Heck WG even said that a large portion of their money comes from players purchasing gold for premium ammo because they can't afford it with credits.

 

Just because they don't win all their gold doesn't mean they're doing it the wrong way

lol did you see the thread about the guy crying about the grille 15.  Guy said he dropped $200 on the line bypassing the entire line up to the waffle and he wanted a full refund plus camo plus a laundry list of other requirements.  It was priceless.

Honestly, if you buy gold so wargaming can keep the game running youre doing it very wrong.

I dont buy that excuse

 

I agree, wot is a great game and its fun as hell, but i dont pretend i buy gold so other people can play for free.

why would you want the old waffle back? Grille 15 literally prints wn8 and salt when you use it.

Good players will be able to do well in it, but the ***** that use to drop a clip in the waffle and do 1800dmg (yes i know that's low) and die but were happy about being able to do 1800 dmg in something will hate it.

I've purchased a few lower tier premiums when they were on sale.  Really the biggest investment is time

just spent grinding down a line to get a turd.  Not only a product that's no fun for the user, but no fun for

the poor tanker who RNG randomly decides: - today's the day your getting cancer.  If you were to buy

a .50 calibre sniper rifle, it might come with some expectations that hitting a target 2 kms away will be difficult.  

But if it had the accuracy of a musket, it's no damn good.  Perhaps it's just the slot machine of the casino and

you just deal with it.  Sit there and pull the arm, watch the wheels spin, and see if you're a 'winner'.  Blah.

Not everyone has the time on hand that you have, and also maybe not the skill to win gold in tourneys.

Also remember that it's because other players pay to play the game that you can ride this game free, else you would have to pay too for many things.
