You claim that they "increased" arty accuracy. I'd be curious if you'd be able to prove it. Not only have they done exactly the opposing, saying that the increased width of the area-of-effect of the stun compensated (they made a video specifically about this when they released the update following the introduction of the stun), they also reworked the shell dispersion, meaning that when an arty fires the shell can land just about anywhere at the same odds unlike the typical dispersion patterns used by the other vehicles in which the shot is more likely to hit the center than the edge. You claim they decreased arty reload. I found similar claims on the forum. Maybe they did for low tiers? I don't know. However, it still takes 55s to 65s to reload my high tier ones, and it hasn't been reduced a bit, except when I achieved the BIA perk. They also REDUCED the ammo capacity of several high tier arties. The S-51 only holds 14 rounds with the best gun, meaning you'll run out before the end of the round while also having no accuracy worth noting in arty mode but you make a great peek a boom in normal mode. This said, unless you've played hundred of rounds as an arty before the change and after the change you can't really sympathize, as I myself used to curse a lot when I was on the receiving end of an arty shell grinding a med or open top TD.

 

Regarding your two next paragraph, I'd encourage you to go on Youtube and check the various post about the cheats performance. (it's a strike level offense to directly link one in this forum)

 

Regarding your last paragraph, of course there are also other factors. But in my opinion, cheating is one of the worst. I can't support that it is, you can't support it's not, I do agree with the other factors you provide are serious issues (except regarding arties). I guess two people can never fully agree together.

 

https://worldoftanks...ease_notes_918/

 

 Thats the patch where they introduced the stun mechanic. This actually says that they've also decreased aiming time alongside accuracy improvement, which I didn't know, oh well.

 

Couldn't find where they would go into specificity, however you could go to Tanks.gg and at the top right you'll find a little drop down menu with patch selection, and if you go to obj. 261 for example and play around between 9.17.1 and 9.18 patches, you'll see that its reload time was decreased by 3 seconds, aim time decreased from 6.3 to 4.3 (!!!) seconds, dispersion dropped from .63 to .57, and explosion radius doubled from 4.93 to 10. The higher the original values were the more significant changes got. Conqueror GC dropped a whopping 11 seconds off of its reload, from 55 to 44 seconds. These are extremely significant improvements and they really put things into perspective when talking about how lightly to medium armored vehicles feel now.

 

But yes, I suppose we can never fully agree. That is the beauty of debates.

 

As a side note, alphadogg and george really are not the same person. GeorgePreddy is a character of a whole another magnitude, he even deserved several posts on one scandalous website that I'm pretty sure I'll get striked for if I were to utter its name.

Nailed it 100%. I agree in every conceivable way. I've been playing 6 years and overall quality of game has declined so much. Typically see 10k on weekends playing in entire NA server, that is the population of one tiny town in a small state, pathetic. I now play solely for laughs and giggles. All that disagree with your post know for a fact that game is dying, so they lash out with their rude response. The only fix for this dying game is SBMM, and that will never happen. End garbage one way, two tier spread, but that will never happen. Game is based on imbalance and making battles as short as possible. Soon, one day, game will be completely gone for NA server, that is why I no longer spend $ on this dying game. Peace out. CH.

All one has to do is look at player numbers for NA server. Numbers and facts do not lie. Game is dying in NA.

I couldn't have anything to do with the fact that the game is nearly 10 years old, could it ?. Or the fact other game are out there, or people just get burnt out. Totally couldn't be anything to do with that, right ?. 

 

Name one game, that is as old as WoT that still has the same numbers now as they did 10 years ago. The only game that comes close is EvE, and the numbers are down on that game too.

Don't get me wrong, I l enjoyed game, but devs killed it with nonsense. Game could be great again with 2 things being done. SBMM and 1 tier spread MAX. But those things will never happen. Game is based on imbalance. EvE is too complicated to play IMHO.

Can you get decent Ping playing on EU server? I'm genuinely curious.


it been around 100-150 ms for me. More then enough to play without any issues. There normally like 80-100k players on during peak hours and 6-10k players during the early morning(their time around 4-6am)

How could you know the amount of players back in 2011 if you started your account in 2013, OP?

that just shows it is clinging on. better stat would be the count of active players and how much they spend according to server.

This is still one of the most profitable PC games in the world, well in the mid top 10.

A moronic forum troll claiming to spread logic! I had never seen that before! Just like I had never seen a mere forum troll meatpuppetting 3 accounts (Rokinamerica, GeneralPreddy and Alphadogg64)! :popcorn: What's next? You'll pm your troll buddy Tolos so that he brings his 10 or so meatpuppets as well?

 

How the hell did I get dragged into this. Keep me out of your childish rants.
