Quick question...:amazed:

Why do we only have one server now..? What happened..?

 

 

We only have one because the player base could not support 2 servers....aka was costing WG $$$ to run 2 sooooo down to 1. Plus it was a way to "boost" the server numbers to make them look better.

Not quite. I remember when you had 20K plus players on Both NA servers almost 24/7. Now look at the population on ONE SERVER !

 

That never happened.

Smaller game population, for my money ($), is the way to go.

Sort it out like Mac’s Islands hopping concentrations of knuckle headed people and problems, and by retracing the breadcrumbs to get back onto the right path, instead  of ever onward and over the cliff with the blind leading blind.

For WoT re-strategizing by going back to a separate but parallel 9.17 dynamic trajectory pathway, since 9.18 was the Moses like Exodus.

WoT yearly premium account membership required for everyone to play Random game segment.

The Forum outside of: News and Information, Support, Wargaming Community Feedback Requests, Tournaments and eSports, Clans and Clan Wars Discussion,  Community Zone, The Chieftain's Hatch,  Staff Corner, Wargaming Game Center (WGC) Beta , WGC Launcher Bugs and Feedback , will become Pay to Post.

The free word gets circulated…WoT is quality over quantity.

That’s more… Rather than…!

Quick reply.  We don't just have one server.  We have US Central and LATAM which are a total of 2 servers.

Another quick question...

How many people {roughly} play on that LATAM server..? I've never been on it.

I forgot about that LATAM server.

So, apparently we still have two servers. By the way how many people play on that LATAM server..? Do you know..?

Its basically a good game but the real issue is Wargaming is having issues transitioning to a long term revenue based formula so they attempt to ad hoc the cash flow by introducing more and more premiums. The problem is you can only add so many cash driven tanks to the game before the market is saturated and then you get the side effect of balancing issues. Then add to the patchwork OP tanks in the tec tree that entice people to burn cash to fast research them, then you get more balancing issues.

 

In simple economic terms: instead of milking the cash cow, Wargaming is butchering and packaging it (look at those overpriced deals in the premium shop right now). And that is how this game is being mismanaged..........:sceptic:

I've been passing on those sales, too...:sceptic:

I don't see anything in the shop that interests me. And I'm certainly NOT interested in yet another tier 8. Not one bit. I don't even like tier 8. I wouldn't mind seeing the little A-32 tier 4 Soviet Medium being offered for sale. I would consider buying that. I'm pretty sure it's offered on the RU server. Other than that, I'd like to see a Historical Battle PvE mode. That would peak my interest, if done correctly.

Nothing wrong with Spg's or pref MM, it's the players.

You need to clarify that was sarcasm. I am speaking from experience on that too.


While I see the problems with WoT's and I do get frustrated, at times, with game play.  I still find enjoyment playing at tier's 5, 6 and some times 7.  Shall not spend any more money on the game but for a free game (free now), its Ok.

 

If it was sarcasm I would have ended it with a /s at the end

So how would you "manage" it????

 

There are only so many ways WG earns money off of WOT

 

1. Gold Sales - Currently, a little gold can be made to last a long time.  Any ways to increase gold will likely just be seen as a "money grab".

2. Premium time - It appears Wg is looking at a "Ultra" premium time, but again, this will likely be seen as a "money grab" and/or P2W

3. Premium tanks - I do agree with you that there is only so much they can do with tanks.  They either need to make all the tanks fairly similar (which is boring) or make them drastically different....in which case, there will be some tanks that seem OP and some that are crap.

 

Pricing is based on marketing targets and "supply and demand".  If they are meeting their marketing targets at the price set, then they really are not overpriced.  If the price is too high where they do not meet their target, then they would be overpriced.

Hey WOT!  Thanks again for taking the game back 4 versions to totally unbalanced teams!  Getting 5, yes 5 games below 35% win chance in a row means that you indeed are playing to the "great" players and anyone under 50% can just pound FK'ing sand now right!!???  Thanks again and hope you are totally out of business in the next year.

I just cant bring myself to like the game.  I have tried.  The MM seems broken.  There should be some kind of system in place to eliminate suicide players from game play (die in the first minute 4 times in a row?  have an hour cool down) .  There is no point in "trying hard" when some tool (dead) is blabbing on about how bad the living members of the team are.  The fact that when I get on a t6 and the field is flooded w/ t8's don't help.  Dead tanks having the ability to spam ping the map is annoying as all hell.  The player base is toxic.  The LATAM players on central server is pathetic (im not going to learn a language just to play a game).  It has run its course for me.  .  I still get on and play, but I wont spend money on it.

If you think 3 tanks out of 15 is a flood, than maybe the problem is your perception of the game and not the game itself.

Less than 25% of WoTs so-called gamers were ever pro-WoT player/payers…The change everything, freeloading, majority of them have always contemptuously kicked the board over…And then WoT acquiesces to this mob with 9.18!

How can anyone knowing this continue to support that ilk?
