Can we get an update that fixes the lackluster economy in this game? It takes way to long now to grind anything...

 

+1 for you . WGing loves to punish the masses . Where as other games you get to where you want to be and are able to afford to play what you want . Probably one more reason so many left the game amongst many other obvious reasons they so choose to ignore …

It’s 20:00 CST 9 October and I still can’t download the update through the App Store. Why?

Is MM going to get fixed so [edited]ters will stop ruining the matches?

Anyone know what the point of pausing a personal mission is?

 

Does that let you choose a different mission without losing progress?

3-5-7 doesn't work. 2 things. MM where 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 are the matchmaking categories allows for better balance. The other would be a cutoff of skillset that puts you into a cetain category of skill based matchmaking. Many other games have done that, perhaps they need some developers not drunk on vodka.

The biggest problem with the matchmaker can't be fixed by the devs easily. The fact that a certain tier is "over played" forces the MM to use up as many tanks of that tier as possible to make the matches happen. This is a problem with tier 8 for example, there are so many tanks at that tier the MM uses 3-5-7 and 5-10 to use up as many tanks as possible. Skill based matchmaking won't change much.

Straight from this post detailing the changes they made: 

"Vehicles with the same base model, such as the WZ-111 and the WZ-111 Alpine Tiger, will get the same improvements."

As always, players with active Premium Time will receive 1 additional day of Premium Time as compensation for server downtime.

 

Wil there be any compensation for those that were running boosters when the server closed down?

 

NB: see comment below.

There has been a countdown timer on the main screen letting me know how long I have left to buy the 105.

 

Why can't we get a timer to show how long before the server is going to be closed off so that I don't load boosters and then get 1 game before the server closes.

 

PS, not everyone who plays is in the US and A. Your EST and Pacific times mean diddlysquat to us ANZAC's; just sayin'.

It means that you can swap to another tank for some reason and thereby are not stuck having to play the same tank continuously. Think of getting your daily 4X etc. You might be working a certain misison that you only want to play for a specific nation and pausing means you can go do something with another nation etc.

I never pulled the plug but pretty much just log on and let time pass by . Last few days when I did play was so horrific I about did pull the freaking plug for good . Couldnt even get my x4s done that I wanted it was that FU%$#@ bad . And easy shots wouldn't pen or hit the target  ....  But Armor Warfare I seen today was working on a global server so all players can jump on and play if they so wish . 

 

I have an AW account (playing it right now as WoT servers have gone away) and I am not sure I like the idea. I am in New Zealand and get about 275 ping to NA. I have an EU account and I get about 350 to there. I will have to wait and see if it works Ok.

This is what I wish....I wish that WOT would do an update that detects cheat files in your game folder on your computer...and then deletes your account. This would solve a lot of problems and make the game more fair. Cheat files downloadable to the folder on your computer have been available and created for online games since the 90's. Get REAL.

The Super Pershing engine nerf is very exciting, I used to have a platoon member push me when I played the tank and it may no longer be required to get to a good spot in time to face light/medium tanks at good places in some maps.

I know that 3-5-7 don't work. I would rather prefer to go back to the mm prior to 9.18.

interesting idea but there could be legal issues to such an action

you mean the best course of action is to go from a mm people hate to a MM that people also hated?

Don't really matter to me Domo.

I have 37 days of premium time left and when its gone I want buy any more!!!

From my perspective this game has turned into a bottomless pit.

 

Same here.  Once the gold is gone, I'll be running a standard account.  Fully intend to play for free until WG gets their act together.

^^ This. I've been saying this for years. You can still have a tier AND skill based MM, but skill MUST be part of the equation. Most normal people accept that you'll be bottom tier sometimes. What we can't accept is that we're bottom tier the majority of the time AND our teammates are potatoes at tier 10 (or whatever the top tier is) and can't carry their weight. If each team had an equivalent number of good players at each tier, the deck becomes more balanced. It won't fix everything, but it's a start. I wouldn't advocate for entire matches of only good players because the MM would almost certainly break. But when you see 4 unicums on one team against a team of tomatoes, the game is just simply broken. Losing in a good match occasionally is still better than winning a lopsided victory. I'm pretty tired of 4 minute matches or 4-15 losses (or wins). I've been here for a pretty long time, and the fact that WG has refused to address this is shown clearly in the dwindling player base.
