Removing Silver wasn't a change that catered to purples, which is why when they did we went and made our own.

6. The 3/5/7 MM where good players can compensate for being bottom tier half the time, while the average player or less really struggles. Being on an unbalanced, crap team occasionally is no big deal, but having to be bottom tier constantly REALLY sucks for the average to lower skilled player.

3/5/7 isn't fun for unicums either. Sure we can have slightly more impact in lower tier games then the average tomato, but if I'm in a tier 8 and my tier 10's and 9's are crapno matter how much I farm it'll be next to impossible to carry. Probably why most unicums play mainly 9/10 tanks in pubs.

7. Only T10 CW. See # 5 above, can't allow the <crappers> to compete in the End Game Content.

TIer 10 was the original endgame. If you can't be bothered to grind for 2/3 tier 10 END GAME TANKS, why should you be given access to end game content. You don't get to level halfway in destiny or other MMO's and get access to end game raids and the like. Nothing to see here but stupidity. 

6B. I mean even then 3/5/7 is better for bad players because when bottom tier there is at least 6 other tanks of the same tier as them. As opposed to before games were there could be 7 top tiers and 4 bottom tiers. Or games were the opponent could have 9 top tiers to your 7 and your forced to fight the top tier tanks in your bottom tier becasue of the large number difference.

Now you can ignore top tiers while a bottom tier and focus on the enemy bottom tiers.

 

7B. Its the regular: I don't want to put in effort to get stuff just give me things for free right away so I don't have to put in effort into this game. Same reason that high tiers(8-10) earn credit losses for bad players. Makes it so that those who won't put in the effort to improve have a harder time playing higher tiers.

If anything, wot listens to the worst/average players.... they are literally 90% of the player base.

If you actually look at it properly:

 

I have 1775wn8 with an average tier of 7.11, and 3315wn8 recent with an average tier of 8.84. Explain to me how that is padding in low tiers?

 

Now if we look at yours:

You have 1458wn8 with an average tier of 6.53, and 1728wn8 recent with an average tier of 8.85.

 

Not exactly sure why you have taken issue with my stats and alleged low tier stat padding when yours are fairly similar in the tier department.

His point is that the guy is bad and plays lower tiers to pad his wn8. And that you're a furry. :^)

Thing is your average or so called player is like a bot bad to most teals and higher level players. The simple answer here would be improve at the game or keep getting clubbed. Who disagrees? It's a food chain to be honest. The strongest eat the weak, There is always the case where the weak survives an attack and the strong become the hunted. Wait..... That was before arty 1 shots nerfs.

The arty changes benefit everyone. It makes arty more fun for the arty player because theres less RNG involved, and more fun for the tank player because it doesnt run your game randomly. Most of the time.

Light tanks are still fairly weak. We need more than 3 vision maps for lights to become actually overpowered. I dont see why an underpowered class getting buffed benefits purples more than others though?

I dont think many purples were interested in/cared about T10 lights. Same as before. Why does this benefit purples more than others? And no, one has decent armour, and suffers massively in the gun department for it.

Also, literally NO ONE, and I mean NO ONE, purple or otherwise, thought bonds and the inproved equipment were good ideas.

 

He never said they benefit Purple players, he said they listen to their concerns more than the low classes.

Not sure if I agree with this statement but I do understand his statement

So you are basically saying that because purple players can adapt to any changes that wargaming makes and take every advantage to perform better, wargaming must be catering to purple players?

 

 

Congrats for twisting OP's wording and belittling him just to stroke your epeen ego.

Nothing short of a nasty toxic demeanor for no reason.!

Thanks for telling me what my intent was when posting and what my demeanor is. I thought i was just summarising the OP and exageting a little to highlight to absurdity. How wrong i was.............

 

On the other hand, since you say i have a nasty demeanor...

Thanks for proving you were dropped on your head out of a third story window as an infant. :P

they really don't. if they did Clan Wars and tournaments wouldn't be dead right now. 


WG caters to what they see. per arty changes, Arty has only been the #1 forum complaint literally since the game was launched. So WG finally changed it. Like or hate the new mechanics the result is MUCH less arty whining on the forums.

Why wouldn't they cater to their top customers ?

 

I understand what you're saying, but if they don't take care of everyone they won't be top customers for long.  If everyone green on down left, there'd have to be new green on down to the tomatoes.  Some folks would lose their "voice".  Well somebody has to lose when somebody wins, right?  I know it'll never completely happen...but if folks get too frustrated there will be an effect (if there hasn't been already).

But the counter-argument is of course that WoT is very counterintuitive and esoteric, and many of the tomatoes remain tomatoes simply because they have no earthly idea what's going on and therefore are completely unfit to give any sort of serious feedback to the devs apart from the request for a more relevant and comprehensive tutorial. In situations where the devs fulfill the requests of misguided players like these, the result is almost invariably disastrous for gameplay at all skill levels.

Do they cater to the Purple?  Hell yes they do, but not what the majority of the people think on the reasons why?

 

Anyone a few brain cells or do business in any market that deals with "Consumers" knows why this is happening.  Especially in the video gaming industry.

 

Conversely. WG is failing and has been failing with the decline of the average players who play this game.  They are still down 30% from last years player base and we are heading towards Holiday Season. 

 

Yes they are catering to the Purples.  This is nothing new at all, but WG's upper management fails to grasp, how to fully control their market share, which separates themselves the bigger game companies (hell I'll throw in a Good indie company that produces WarFrame, which as a greater internet interest than WoT) than what they are. 

 

War Thunder Should not Exist.  It should have been wiped out years ago BUT, incompetence, greed, and good o' Russian style of thinking has Kept WT in the game and has even made them stronger than they should be.

 

WoT are really just a bunch of "Dirty DEVS", running a mobile phone style of business on a computer game, failing to understand long term profits for ill gotten gains.

 

That pretty much covers it.

There is absolutely no reason to cater to unicorns. It’s an extremely small population slice with no relationship to spending. If anything they would cater to whales like any other industry.
