This was a ticket I sent to Wargaming support just as some feedback for someone to look at. They sent me an automated response which is fine but I hope somebody saw what I had to say. Anyway I figured I'd post it here as well, I know there's strong opinions about this stuff and I know many have heard this before, but I just wanted to put my two cents out there.

 

Why I uninstalled WOT:

Horrible experience for new players at low tiers, especially at tier 4 when matched up against tier 6's.

 

+2 -2 matchmaking, example: a M3- Lee should never meet an O-I, what is a new player in an M3 going to do against a seal clubber in an O-I? What about an O-I against a KV-4? For the top tier player, especially if that player is experienced, the game is a rampage power fantasy, just watch the best replays, the hero is almost always top tier. For those at the bottom, it is hopeless unless you can gang up. No vehicle should be completely helpless against another, that is not very fun at all.

 

Overpowered Premium Tanks; Defender, Patriot, Chrysler K, E-25 etc. These vehicles are TOXIC and PAY TO WIN. REMOVE THEM. REFUND THE GOLD.

 

Over-armored high tier heavy tanks; IS-M, Maus, Type 5 heavy etc. These vehicles have no front weak spots, they overwhelm players not firing premium ammo, and are completely useless against players who do fire premium ammo.

 

Players are encouraged to fire premium ammo, premium ammo is a pay to win mechanic. Players who do not run a premium account or purchase a premium vehicle cannot afford to run premium ammo in their high tier vehicles. The best players use premium ammo liberally, again, watch their replays. Their stats speak for themselves.

 

Rewards for ranked battles are unfair to average players, the best players are going to get the enhanced equipment much faster. Why would you give advanced players an advantage in random battles? Restrict enhanced equipment to ranked battle use only or replace them with cosmetics.

-Don't fight an O-I head on with a Lee 

-Don't fight heavy tanks head on in general (unless you have armor yourself)

 

totes, anyway

+/-2 mm, sometimes you is the big fish, sometimes you is the itty bitty fish.  Mixes things up.

 

Toodles, I guess.

If the Lee ignores his scouting and continues to approach the O-I, he deserves to get blown up.   The Lee has the speed to relocate away from the O-I.  But, lets back it up a hair and go with IV meeting VI.  Same principle.  Let the VI on the team go toe-to-toe with the VI.  Your scouts/lights or faster tanks will show you where the higher tier are at.  Also, you dont have to rush forward.  Play smart and keep the higher tier friendlies out in front !

 

As for OP premiums.  Okay, That I can somewhat agree with .  But, they can be beaten.  They are VIII afterall.  The shine wears off them soon as people learn how to beat them

 

The OP heavies.. having no weak spots frontally.   Thats why you flank them.  Thats what mediums are for.  Heavies keep their attention, mediums flank and blast.

 

Your last two points have some validity, but arent ruining the game.

I completely agree with this post except for the pay to win part as a new player you will be frustrated to no end and it will get worst as you climb the tiers even when you learn the game there is no way to stop a premium round if you are 2 tiers lower and matchmaking is still broken at certain tier 6&8 (cough) but they are to busy polishing turds I mean there old maps instead of working on their penatration mechanics for this game premium rounds should have a trade off like less DMG

I lost interest when MM spread was complained about....seriously does anyone remember when there WASNT a proper MM spread? ( Loltractors vs Maus anyone?) Or even +4/-4? or +3/-3? MM spread is fine. If you are consistently trying to face an OI with a m3 lee, the tank is not the issue........

MM tier spread is a nil subject......

Wow, enough already. I, for one, am gald your ticket fell on deaf ears.

WoT is not a government office where social justice warriors and politically correct snowflakes run the show.

 

If you wanted a vanilla tank game where every pixel shot offers the same damage, every pixel tank has the same armor, speed, size and mobility GO BACK TO ATARI.

I know what I can do in an IS-M, and its pretty dirty for my skill level.  I cant imagine what a unicum could do with one if they ever chose to focus playing one.  I'm near 300 battles and its become the best tank in my garage, easily.

Capt. Ronald Speirs:
We're all scared. You hid in that ditch because you think there's still hope. But Blithe, the only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already dead, and the sooner you accept that, the sooner you'll be able to function as a soldier's supposed to function. Without mercy, without compassion, without remorse. All war depends on it.
