All these damned handouts are ruining everything!  No you shouldn't get a first place trophy for participation.  You get a first place trophy for winning at everything.  Just like you get sixth sense when you grind that skill to 100% like everyone else.  The people that play WoW's are mostly retirees and need the edge!  If you want free sixth sense, go play WoW's or play WoT on console or do whatever all the other millenials are doing these days!  Slackers!

 

Sixth sense isn't just a participation trophy? 

'The people that play WoW's are mostly retirees and need the edge!' 

So they play the more balanced game instead of the one that gives more of an edge to the people with better collections?

 

The only rewards that aren't merely participation trophies in this game are things like top gun, high caliber, etc 

 

There is no required skill involved earning the buffs in this game.

:harp:

 

There should be a level playing field and the buffs that are given are customizable load outs (available to every player) and then there can be some kind of skill in how you build for each battle.

XP should be more valuable and more time be required to advance at lower tiers, all module cost built into tank cost etc. 

Everything is structured to milk $$ to just play the game normally. 

 

Yes, I tend to upset a lot of people who think the game should limit peoples ability to do things like see and shoot them depending on how many bot games they grinded super skillful games they played to earn these abilities.:bush:

People being against quality if life improvements are going to kill this game.

 

I've been playing WoWs for the past 2 years instead of tanks, and I can say that the quality of life differences between this game and that one are massive and make that game considerably easier to get into, and because of that, I have spent way more money on that game like hundreds vs like 80 that I had spent on 4 years of WoT.

 

It's not just the spotting though. The economy is much better in that game, it doesn't take days to grind credits to buy modules or ships. Flags and Camos make experience and money grinds much better for people that can't play all day. 

 

Just my opinion.

 

Definitely agree that WoWS is a lot better in the quality of life department! I'd love to see some of its features here for sure.

...including the weapons spam. No thank you. I tried Warships and it just doesn't have the depth that this one has 

 

They can keep whatever "innovations' they used to promote a rival game.

Why not make them all free. Why should folks have gain experience in the first place. Really, where does it stop.

This is the reason sixth sense should be free to all. This ""unicum" stat padder has 45,275 battles total. This player has 21,337 battles in the tier 5 T67 alone. Please see below for additional stats on this player. Most games played in low tiers. The numbers highlighted in red are the number of games played in each tank. It would be my guess this player would be against giving sixth sense free to all players.

avg. damage blocked - 1.59

avg. spots -                   1.32

 

When my tank explodes for no known reason it turns out to be either arty or T67.  And then people complain about others who do zero damage.  I've learned to not move forward because my tank will suddenly explode.

 

  Move forward and tank explodes.  Stay back and tank does not explode.  Cause and effect.

So you sit in the back behind a rock the whole game. You must because if you move forward you explode right?

How about every tank you purchase a tank you get 210,064 crew xp to spend how ever you like. And those who already bought the tank gets 210,064 xp to put on whatever crew member they want. This way all the people that got there skills by grinding will get compensated.

Maybe not as crazy as it sounds: why not give a single crew with ~4 perks ready for each nation at the start of a tree? That would give every player a single *good* crew to be their main-line crew for the nation, then additional crews could be trained as normal as the tree expands. Not ideal, given the weird crew arrangements of different lines, but might help even the playing field a little bit for the guy trying to grind out his first line.

Remember, if this game is going to stay strong, we WANT the new-player experience to be good. I don't give a rat's a** if it's a "give away" or whatever, there's still plenty of grind if you want more than one tank in a nation. But it might make the new-player experience a little less awful than hopping into tier 4 and running directly across some dude with 50k games and five perks that's just slaughtering everyone.

The amount of effort that a person will put in to justify their experiences with one match is amazing.

Imagine if the devs listened to every whine lol.

Pretty much.  My most played vehicles used to be light tanks and now they are tds.  There is no reason to move forward.

But now many didn't?  This game is aging, it *needs* to keep bringing in new people.  The new-player experience is still abysmal.  Doesn't matter if it was "worse in the old days", what matters is that it's competitive now.  If you can't convince that new player that this game is *fun* in the first probably dozen or so games, I'd guess you lose them forever.  It doesn't *matter* how it "used to be", just how it is now in comparison to other games they could be playing.

I have created this post because of the issues all new players entering this game have. If new players could obtain sixth sense easier It may help entice more new players to try the game. It may also help to keep new players from getting frustrated and leaving the game before they get a chance to learn it.

 

This is my first time setting up a poll. I hope I have done it correctly. Please select your choice and if you have any other options that pertain to Sixth Sense please elaborate. 

 

You may notice that the polling numbers are off by 26 contributors. The reason is that in the early stages of this poll it was streamlined or changed because of either suggestions or efficiency. Some of the early votes were lost. There will not be anymore changes to the polling questions. My apologies to the earliest voters who were clearly behind the idea of giving SS to the commander without a grind. I don't know if it is possible to go back in and check the questions that have been changed or not.  

 

Well I went back on my promise and changed the poll just a bit. I added one more possible answer to the first question. I saw how many people were viewing the post but not near as many were taking the poll. I thought maybe that some of these people don't care one way or another. 

 

Thank you. 

 

EARN your skills the hard way like everyone else and stop your belly aching and crying

people like you is why kids get trophies for doing nothing but picking their noses on the bench.. participation trophies are for losers

I WILL SAY IT AGAIN. IT IS NOT FOR ME. ARE YOU ALL DENSE OR SOMETHING. I HAVE A FULL GARAGE AND FOUR AND FIVE SKILLED CREWS. i CAN GRIND A NEW CREW WITHOUT SIXTH SENSE BECAUSE I KNOW HOW TO PLAY BETTER THAN NEW PLAYERS.

 

IT IS TO KEEP THE NEW PLAYERS INTERESTED SO THE GAME CAN CONTINUE SO YOU CAN ALL SEAL CLUB FOR YEARS TO COME.

Thank you. 

 

I reared this thread and I realized one mistake that you made.

 

Instead of saying it should be made free, you should have said that it should be made baseline.

 

You see the word 'free' is a trigger word for people of some generations that think millennials are all lazy, and soft, and looking for handouts.
