You want to know why players are leaving WOT? I quit for a few months back because I got tired of loosing 15 - 20 games in a row night after night. Just this week I decided to play a few games to see if things had changed. The very first tank I played took 3 games to get a win and the next tank took 11. The very next day I tried again and quit playing after loosing 4 in a row. Losing game after game sucks and is not fun. I accept that I am not the best player in the world however I do better than most. Yet over and over I am placed on teams that either all die in the first 5 minutes or do zero damage. The MM is still a piece of junk and if other players are having the same experience as me, WOT will continue to slowly die.

MM is fine. You win some, you lose some.

I can't wait until the gold nerf goes though so we can get less steamroll wins/losses.

You have to learn when to quit on a tank.  I usually play 3 and Out.  If I lose 3 times without a win, I switch to a different tank.  If that tank goes 3 and Out, I switch to a different tier.  If the situation repeats, I switch to my Pz. B2 740 or the Russian Light Valentine II - both of which have Super Preferential Match Making (only seeing a maximum of Tier IV, unless you are platooned with someone who doesn't have SPMM - then you get dragged into Tier 5 or 6).  If I go 3 and Out in those 2 tanks, I call it a day and go find something else to do with my time.  No sense in letting a video game ruin your day.

You win approximately half your battles... what % of wins do you want WG to guarantee you ??  MOAR than half ??

That's why winning is more fun. You should try it!

 

Ultimately, this game is quite simple, but it's also very difficult. Try watching the mini-map more often (seriously, like every 3-5 seconds), learn where the enemy likes to go on each map and read where they're deploying in your current match, then be sure not to get caught out unaware. Use this information to force the enemy into traps and crossfire, poke and shoot enemies that aren't looking at you, watch what your team mates are doing and try to help them from time to time. Conserve your own HP, take out low-HP enemy tanks first, etc. Whatever you do, do not simply drive into enemy territory and think "I got this!", because you will surely die.

 

A good tactic during a session is to pick out a few of your replays and watch them, trying to figure out what you did right and wrong and what you could have done differently and/or better. Be critical and honest about your own gameplay, because you only have yourself to rely on when on the battlefield.

Can't tell if this is satire or clueless.

I suspect accidental satire due to cluelessness (like there will be a correlation between ammo changes and steamroll games :facepalm:)

got to be satire.... the gold nerf will just add to the steamroll....    what really needs to be done is bump it from -2/+2 to -1/+1 and you would see less spammo  as with taanks like the defender, it's buffed up to be decent against 10's but that mkes it so the 6's that have to play against it have to use gold to get any damage on it.  

 

a few days ago I had a night that was 36 games, 36% win rate.  sometimes MM just sticks it to you nd no matter what you do you get kicked in the face many games with high damage and still lost.... that's the whole arcade-ness off this game.

Honestly that might break the game you realize how many tanks are revolved around using gold .Thats what they have built there game around in hopes you press that two key.It going to completely f the game up if they go through with it .But what ever its there game they can do what with it.I am just here for the ride.

I don't know why people leave. I came back this game helped teach an old fart a few things. Its a game A first-person shooter. No Blood No Guts No consequences. Just fun! The heck with the stats!  We all know when we have done well!! I'm still learning!!

100% wrong.

Players will always take the easy mode and/or OP tank.

I'm not saying the Gold nerf will fix steamrolls, there are obviously more things that contribute. But it will reduce their frequency, be it only a little.

 

My comment was mostly satire.

lol.....you have got yourself an imagination, if you think its premium ammunition which causes blowouts.

Steam rolls, are created through sought after positions. 

A team overpowers a portion of the map, that is usually vital high ground, that projects alot of power.

This leads to alot of spotting, alot of damage, vs hulldown tanks otherwise protected from taking damage 

Other team cannot recoup the losses, and folds. 

 

Camping in a way, counters potential snowball defeats certain maps. Because it huddles defenders and focuses them

But the probability and communication amongst allies is difficult to do that, and rarely happens. 

 

Certain tanks however, aid in quick snowball victories. FV4201, obj 260, obj 279E, 907 are common snowball tanks

because its a 8 year old game and people want to play something new? this is kinda like saying why is call of duty:MW1 a dead game, even though at one point in its life cycle it was hugely popular.

Ammo's got nothing to do with player skills.
