Forum represents very little of the general player base. what you get out here are usually meaning less perception of how people really think. Game is not really as bad as you think.

Glad they won the award, maybe the NA server will keep on going for years to come. I am not looking forward to the day my account has to be moved to the EU server. Everyone invite a friend to try out WOT, see y'all on the battlefield.

Biggest problem with that is how much they have fractured the player base. (WoT PC, Blitz, and Peasant) Even if you find someone who likes it they probably already have it on a different platform.

The category WOT won was "still playing", The Golden joystick is based out of London, over where EU and RU servers are running strong. If the Vote was casted in NA, WOT would have gotten the "dying game" Award. Congrats WG, for keeping the EU and RU customers entertained. 23k is the most I've seen on the NA Server lately, and that's during a period WOT was giving away $50 tanks..... just sit back and soak that up. NA used to run 35k stronk a year ago, now, they cant even get people on with $50 incentives.

With all the experience they have rigging MM it was easy.
