Dear W.o.T;

World of Tanks is a great game and I love it! In two years I have 45,000+ battles, (13,672 of those using my 43 SPG's), and I hope this massive amount of experience in the game that I have will lend more weight to this feedback than from the average casual player or the artillery-whiners, (who are in the minority). I am not a spoiled child without a job that doesn't put any money into this game and constantly whines in the Forum about artillery. No, I'm an adult who has run my own business for over 30 years.  I, (along with thousands and thousands of other artillery players), have money to invest in this great game, financially supporting the game and have done so many times. I hope this vast base of experience in the game and my business experience of over 30 years lends much greater weight with the developers than the typical, "feedback", they receive from mere children still living with their parents and constantly whining in the Forum.

 

Let's talk raw numbers here and what they mean to Wargaming, as it's evident this aspect is being overlooked by the developers regarding the proposed nerf-hammering of artillery.

 

The video that announced the proposed nerf-hammering of artillery at this moment has 142,499 views in only 20 days, which equals 7,125 views per day. This sets a record for most views of any Wargaming video you have ever posted. The proposed nerf-hammering of artillery is extreme and deeply angers untold thousands and thousands of your artillery customers all over the world, as these numbers clearly demonstrate. The proposed nerf-hammering of artillery is a very hot topic and the outcome will determine whether Wargaming has a successful future or not. A successful, established business such as Wargaming should not be making extreme changes to their business or they invite financial ruin.

 

The total number of thumbs up and down votes for this video at this moment is 4,355.

 

The number of thumbs down votes is 1,653 and this is a whopping 38% of the total, almost 40%. That's huge. Any business that even lost a few percent of its customers would be cause for concern and there would be meetings to determine what they were doing wrong and how to correct it. But a business losing almost 40% of its customers would be red alert time and they clearly would be doing something incredibly wrong. Even 10% would be a serious problem.

 

This means statistically that of those 142,499 total views, that about 38% of the people viewing that video do not want artillery nerf-hammered, or "rebalanced". 38% of 142,499 equals a whopping 54,149 of your customers that have watched that video that do not want artillery nerf-hammered. Angering 54,149 of your customers is not good business and that is not good for the game in any way, shape or form.

 

At latest count, World of Tanks has 110 million registered tankers all over the world. 38% of 110 million is 41,800,000 of your customers/player base, almost 42 million of your customers that do not want artillery nerf-hammered, or "rebalanced". 42 million people, customers, is a staggering number.

 

Does Wargaming really want to lose 38% of its business? How many millions and millions of dollars in lost revenue would that total come to? Would it be wise to lose so much money? How many jobs would be lost at Wargaming?

 

When he visited the offices of Wargaming in California several months ago, your fine C.E.O. Victor Kislyi said in a video that, "everyone hates artillery". With the utmost respect to Mr.Kislyi, the numbers above indicate otherwise and every time Wargaming nerf-hammers artillery you are angering a very large percentage of your player base. This is not wise and not good business.

 

Wargaming, as the numbers above clearly demonstrate, if the proposal to nerf-hammer artillery is implemented, you would be making a huge mistake. Please do not do this. Cancel the proposed nerf-hammering of artillery.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration. Have a super day! :)

I have PLAYed it.


 

I want it changed into a mortar firing TD with thin skin, that can barrage (clip), cannot reload on the move, and only fires HE.

If that is not going to happen... then nerf it.

Nerf it like Nerf Herding Nerfer who is Nerfing a Nerf.


 

 

 

Just sayin'.

Your math is nonsense, you really think that the number of people who thumbs up or down account for the opinion of 9 million (avg number of wot players per day across all regions) players?

YOU don't want it "nerfed" but everyone else wants it rebalanced.  You don't speak for all.  Stop the salt

Aren't bots supposed to be banned?

 

This one just keeps regurgitating the same sentences in different order.

Lol what? One youtube video is not a demonstration of what the bulk of the player base wants. Are you bloody daft? Thats now how statistics or analytics work.
 

Also, even if World of Tanks died, WoWS is enough to keep the company going; {And whats the alternative? The other ones nearly dead, and the other other one is nothing like WoT.}

Both pro AND anti arty players are a vocal minority. The majority doesn't give a [edited]either way.

No, the 85% of players realize the game would be mostly better if arty was gone

Not everyone wants to see arty nerfed to nothingness. I'm with OP. Arty is not my main staple, but I play it here and there especially when WoT's BROKEN match-maker is throwing out crap match after crap match then sometimes the best thing to do is either hop in an arty or head over to World of Warships. I have a hard time knowing how they could possibly nerf some of the higher tier arties much more with a reload time of a minute or more, horrific aim times and frequent misses (despite the point and click rhetoric). Especially if they bring the nerf bat to the LeFH premium (which allegedly from some sources - WG "can't" nerf premium's). That arty is a light weight as it is, nerf it much and you can give me a gold refund, thank you.

Hell, I'd pay to never have to see arty again. Nerf it until it is unplayable I say!

Remove arty and give no compensation to those whom played it. That is the ultimate solution.

This customer wants arty nerfed if we're counting.

 

I even sold my tier 10 GWE 100 so I can buy something that takes skill to operate.

Have to agree, don't nerf it into non-existence, just keep working to improve it's functionality. Lots of "artillery" here were used as bunker busters, how about better non-artillery mode play-ability? The recent proposals for stun sound good. Frankly, there are few things that can dislodge a hull down camping heavy in some spots, and that is more annoying than artillery. Anyways, those who really whine about arty also whine about everything else, pretty certain the stats would show that to be true.

He probably hit that forum bug where it shows oyu have no battles if they see your "Posts" pop up by using the inbuilt "Show new posts" Feature instead of refreshing the page.
