 Which part of the game is driving people away?

 

Well, to be honest, OP ...right now it's not the game, it's the beautiful weather. I usually take a break from video games this time of year to enjoy our nice weather. But I will be back in the fall. I may check in from time to time, to keep updated, but until then, enjoy your summer, everyone! ...:)

This is the only game that I have ever played, and there have been many, where so many people complain about the game being rigged. Even if the game isn't rigged, the persistent belief that it is, is an issue for WG.

In my own humble opinion, RNG is a huge issue.

We all know how fickle that damn number generator is, and that is precisely the issue.

Disparity is needed, but sometimes I envision myself beating up Wargaming Developers simply because the Russian Number Generator puts four shells in the exact same place - directly into the ground. Or I get consistent low rolls for damage/penetration for an entire game.

If RNG was reduced, I would enjoy this game a hell of a lot more.

Since the thread is three years old it needs an update.

 

Wheelies and unrealistic RNG.

So, many haters when it comes to arty, this game has been dumping players because WG has refused to do what the player base wants to see.. there was a HUGE drop off when they nerfed arty, so that's not the reason,.. the player base has always been bad. People who are in this forum make up a VERY small percentage of the player base... people get pissed off because WG keeps nerfing the tanks people work hard to get... because people come here and cry and WG then turns around and make the tank junk.. That's not how to do it.   People fail to understand that each tank has it's own purpose on the field.  Why can't my light tank pin this heavy tank!.. that tank is too OP, going to cry about it on the forums!

 

As far as Arty goes... I can't tell you how many games I have been in where people are crying that arty is not hitting the tanks they spot.. or when they are calling in a SOS and Arty doesn't help the person.. Seems like a lot of people [edited]on here but yet, have no issue calling on arty to help them in game or to get them some spotting damage.

 

The more nerfs that are done, the more WG thinks people in here make up the whole player base and then make nerfs to tanks because of people in here, the more people will just leave the game.

I see Arty but no mention of clown cars in the survey. Clown cars are worse than any arty.

That's because the survey is 3 years old. 

NECRO.

Can't be answered in a check box. I don't like all the changes that are steering the game away from being able to play a general tank. You can't play all kinds of tanks and feel like you're on even ground. Too many arties in matches, tanks getting tracked too easy and perpetually, weird optics engine which I've never been able to figure out, all the auto loaders, the clown cars, etc, etc.

Maps are ridiculous, poorly balanced, small, and turn each game into the same old experience.

 

Spotting and camo - bushes are godlike for no reason other than a poorly designed engine. bushes should matter but not the way its implemented currently.

 

world of chokepoints - as above, map design un nerfed arty as they can typically focus a small area. All arty need their trajectories flattened to use more skill.

 

RNG range needs tightened - and they have never really fixed phantom disappearing shots, or shots that just fly outside the entire aim area entirely.

^..Yep, I agree. This thread does need an update.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

On that note.....

I would never classify this as 'necroing' for the following reasons:

 

Spoiler

 

-Regardless of the few poll options offered, this topic is still extremely relevant to this day

-We are not permitted to make new threads on already existing topics

-Ask yourself if this subject is still an ongoing issue/problem? YES..obviously.

-Has the issue been resolved..?  Obviously not.

Dude, ease up on the bacon. Or you're gonna have a heart attack.

So much talk about these new clown cars {Wheeled Vehicles}....:unsure: Hmmm... maybe OP should add clown cars to the poll..?

 

Be honest everyone, have they really broken the game..? Honestly, I don't have enough experience with them to make that conclusion..yet, so... you be the judge.

The whole original philosophy of the game is out the window.  What used to be about tanks using map awareness and positioning and angling, is now all about go fast, snapshotting autoloading peekabooing FPS style gameplay.  Most newer heavies Tier 8+ are as fast as mediums now.  Mediums aren't worth using unless you are a semi heavy or an autoloader, and lights were made defunct by wheelies overnight.  Arty changed from trying to control heavies in the chokepoint to splashing moving mediums and lights who aren't even camping, for the most damage.

 

Most of the older tanks that were designed under the old philosophy should just be deleted since it's clear the devs don't even want that style of play anymore

 

Basically whoever got hold of the game said "A tank game? BOOOORING, lets make it fun!  pew pew zoom zoom!"

 

Everything that followed on is just a result of that mindset.

I'm surprised XVM isn't on this list. Nothing is more irritating than having someone whine about tomatoes and you, as a new player, have no freakin' clue what he's yammering on about until the 'green' or 'blue' begins losing and starts having seizures in chat.

 

Seriously that mod is cancer, even more cancerous than Gear Score in WoW.

XVM and bad MM have been complaints of every game with a similar system.  Otherwise every game with MM would be dead and MM wouldn't be used in any game because devs would realize it kills games.

This post is so old and includes very misleading information now. I laughed at people blame arty for leaving. The first guy said “ arty and RNG”; stop mixing two different things together. Plus, the guy is still very active in game despite “ arty and RNG”.

#1 Arty(bane) nothing like 3 Arty on each team.

#2 RNG(that time 95% of the reticle is on the tank, but that little sliver 5% is where the round decides to go).

#3 Normalization/Power Creep.. Over the last few years, WG in my opinion has let power creep spread throughout the game(Defender etc..). While not keeping older tanks up to par with the new releases. It's like we are in an endless loop of OP tank, Nerf Op tank..(Type 5!?).. rinse, repeat... :deer:

I've never played another team game where people suiciding due to undesirable stats on their team is a regular thing. XVM is a unique flavor of cancer. I feel that the stat tracking is nice on its own but good lord does it inspire some [edited]ery.
