I am certain that I am far from alone but I've just about had it with the current meta that has gotten increasingly faster and faster and faster and faster and faster since late 2016 in high tiers especially on Edited tunnel maps that are basically no movement no fun allowed. The cherry on top of a poop sundae is getting stuck with swarms of 46% and lower excrement while having to almost constantly face off against top clans and other cretins that get to hurr durr durr durr durr durr around rolf stomping free wins in two or three minutes or less.

 

I am certain that this will trigger some snowflakes but really this game needs SBMM at some point even though it is far too late to save this dumpster fire of a server. WTB 2014 and 2015 back....

You get all those morons at top tier because of WG selling all those crap tier 8 premiums.  I blame WG for killing this game.  There is no way in hell would I give those stupid [edited]  money.

Agreed but what is worse is that those same players are running around in botted tier 9s and 10s often in platoons.

Complaint is about map design and tempo, not MM.

 

@OP,

Yes dumbification of game is a fact with corridors and weak point avoiding Japanese heavies also continued premium ammo based balancing (in fact no balancing to speak of).

I have to agree with the Op.I run mostly tier IX and when in a mostly tier X game its over in less than 3 min half the time especially on Ensk or mines.

  Tankers that can't figure out what to do when they have plenty of time are steam rolled when there freaked out over a platoon of 907s taking hill on mines mowing everything down in sight.

This ^^^

 

WG wants quick matches so they can maximize short term profits. What surprises me is that people still think WG actually cares about the quality of their game.

 

They have been doing everything in their power to maximize premium tank purchases/premium time/etc over the actual game being fun.

So obviously focus on yourself and all other stats but winning? Key to happiness in WoT random battles I'd say. I read a smart thing one time that said "in WoT you have 29 enemies every battle, but you only gotta shoot the red ones". I go purple most games in my E-75 holding off a whole side by myself surrounded by dead greens in the last month or two only for me to usually get rekted by a swarm of reds from the back or side cause I'm only one guy and also no unicum. This is a FTP online game it's gonna have these problems. Just be glad you didn't have to spend $60+ upfront before even seeing tier 1. And really y'all are shocked at foreign corporate greed like come on lol we're adults an this is the real world. The meta and maps could be better but WG aren't 20-30 year development veterans they're just average gamers trying to make something for you to enjoy without too much asymmetry. A lot of meta problems are actually us. We're the ones who pick and choose where to go and what to do there with what and yeah you can say "but the maps and such are designed for hover meds blah blah blah soft stats bias" but truth is we're the ones that posted all these videos and guides and crap on the internet then cry when everyone is the same. When everyone uses that "overpowered" tank who is to blame but the people showing it off all the time as "overpowered" and making it look like only a handful of tanks and styles are worth trying. I can go find plenty of funny video where people go TD in arty and rape but I don't see everyone doing that cause it has a couple thousand fews while the 50th T-54 vid that day has a million. You want the meta to change then start petitioning the big streamers and youtubers to change themselves and people will follow them. How many quickybaby and circon copycats are out there after all? How many people see a BC 25t vid then start down the french line they never had a second thought about before then cause a guys does Mission 15 for campaign 4 like it was nothing? How man people have a garage slot for the widely unused (compared to its peers) object 430 vs another high tier medium cause you gotta go through rear turret tanks that "aren't worth it" according to certain forum members? How many watch a vid where a unicum says a tank is crapso suddenly you don't want it anymore even though it's all you dreamed of for a couple months straight? These people you're trashing may be looking for help to better themselves but they'll never get an answer besides "uninstall" or "just get generic OP tank" or even "read/watch generic thing guy has been sitting on for weeks in his clipboard waiting to paste for noobs in chat/forum". Community problems are community problems. I don't expect anything from WG except the premium shop always being open and a patch when you least expect it... also my christmas tank. Ok I'm done that's just my two cents on whats a problem in a lot more games than just WoT lol I hope nothing I said is taken the wrong way and I look forward to you guys killing me out there.

Uber tier 8s and 7s are indeed the worst mistake made in this game. Profitable but terrible.

Basically, that's why I keep telling people that they need to stop camping and get into the game because this meta is pure absolute aggression and playing tanks that can at least go 35 kph
