Hi guys I had to queue up twice to get one game 8mins I waited in total to day in a platoon of 2 or is match maker just looking to put us in a rubbish match ? I was going to buy a new tier 8 prem  but I don't think this game has much legs left so I'm going to hold off. I mean they stopped tournaments because of numbers r low on the servers and frontline doesn't seam to be coming back and there seams to be more and more advents to bring players on but still long [edited]queues in any tier just worse in 10s.

I get into matches in less than 10 seconds most of the time.  You need to realize it is 922am eastern standard time on a Wednesday most people are sleeping or at work.

 

Is the game dying?  Of course it is, probably has a few years left before it gets merged with the EU server.  Personally I would not suggest buying a tier 8 premium though, you will be seeing Tier 10 non-stop, so unless you like being bottom tier save your money.  But no the game is certainly not on its last legs, aging but not dead.

The game is definitely aging, but let's hope for an influx of new maps and reinstatement of Frontline mode. 1.0 gave it a bump but they have to keep delivering content. They should have a date for frontline's return by now. I suspect that because it is so popular Minsk is trying to find a way to suck all the credit earning out of it. It wasn't online three days before they micro patched the bond earnings.  I totally blame the Russians for these moves. They don't understand customer service.

Supposedly two new maps coming "soon".  Also plans to add in more of the old maps, which while not new will give a little more variety.

As earlier poster, I get into matches in less than 10 seconds usually.  I can count on my hands where it took almost a minute to get into a match.

 

Its a fun game and hope it is around for many years.

But:

Game has a steep learning curve

To many whiny trolls that need a muzzle so as not to deter new players.  The trolls are the biggest problem in the game.

Needs more maps

While getting to tier X is nice there is no point after getting there to play much as it is too difficult to make any money to advance in the game

Frontline was okay, hope they bring that back and open it up for other tiers

Gold ammo is a somewhat of a detriment to the game

Artillery is fine and should be in the game

Bonds are awful and super gear bought with bonds is even more of a detriment to the game

Team killing and harassing should have even more of a penalty

 

Play and have fun. 

If focusing on stats is your kind of fun then great, but do not grief or harass those who do not care about stats and just play and have fun.

Hi Blagger.

 

Yes, the game is dying.

The sun is also dying.

And your liver.


 

:P


 

Seriously though, what tier?

Usually I'm in a match w/in 10 sec.

But tried running my Hydrostat (tier 5 pref mm) late last night (~1am EST - couldn't sleep) and waited almost 2 min.


 

I don't think its dying.

Actually the wait time in WP isn't too bad now that you mostly play against bots.

I rarely get to 1 minute and if I do I just exit and hit battle again. Usually start right away after doing that. Yes, everything in this world is "dying". WOT will probably outlive me. :)

Make sure you are not on the Latam Server. Sometimes the Auto will pick that server where you can throw a Turkey Day feast before getting into a battle.
