Worst part is probably losing streaks caused by arty / bad RNG which puts people onto tilt (Thus resulting in poor play and as such more arty hits & losses).

Wont be around for a while until some changes are made in this game and/or Some changes regarding my perception of WoT. I am uninstalling and taking a break from the agony. Tired of getting ammo racked EVERY battle and the kill shot always taking 2 or more shots... GLHF...

aren't you the same guy who said you had a fully aimed shot while moving and then blamed RNG for your own terrible play and called said shot "fully aimed" even though that isn't possible and proved no replay to back up said faulty evidence

TBH all of the above are driving players away RNG+MM and not being able to transfer accounts will eventually see me bin this game not being able to take part in the competitive side of the game kind of limits the appeal to remain

Oh man, I agree! Go on a losing streak and you start bouncing a lot more and ammo racked more. The game dynamics change so drastically it's amazing this is still on the market.

Experienced top players: CW 2.0, RNG, Arty, general inability of most players to be at least decent at the game.

 

New players: Seal clubbers, losing streaks, RNG, steep learning curve, stock tank grinding and grinding in general

 

Players with a high battle count that are not necessarily good: MM, losing streaks, gold ammo (sometimes), stat shaming, alleged Russian bias, alleged German inferiority, alleged rigged MM/RNG, sometimes Arty.

Long and ridiculous losing streaks are the worst part of the game for me. Honestly, that was what turned me off the game completely. *Now, [when I do play...which I admit isn't often..] if I lose more than 3 battles in a row, I quit and log out. And yes, I do try my hardest in each and every battle.. and I never give up, but I just don't have the patience or the stomach for the 'gaming S&M' anymore.

Besides the fact that that thread stirred up over 150 responses in under an hour it is just another example of why this game is going in the dirt. http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/505563-now-i-finally-have-proof/page__st__140#topmost

That is because you don't make any sense...don't know what you're talking about and refuse to let anyone correct your ignorance ;)

Why do people automatically assume that people are leaving in droves because of the game rather than real life issues?

Certainly some people leave the game because of various reasons ranging from being fed up with some aspect of the game, or just because they've lost interest in it.

 

But I would imagine that far more people leave because of a change in lifestyle.

I rarely play anymore because of a real life issue. But I'm not upset about the game.

How many people who used to play, no longer are able to find time for it because of work/school/family?

 

 

Why don't you add some real life choices to your poll?

This is the best - and most thoughtful, list.

 

Arty is there.  And I don't care, to be honest

 

The high battle count player issues are head on.  These are players that think they get it, but don't, thus are very frustrated.


 

This game has such a steep learning curve that new players, especially the CoD/ M2 "FPS/point and click" crowd get discouraged pretty quickly.


 

Both these player types are what WG needs to reach out to.  Better tutorials explaining game mechanics and how they differ from other games would help significantly.
