World of Tanks used to be the best rated and played game of this century. Looking online at the rated games of this year it is now rated in 5th place. A game that used to have on average on the US Server 24000 players at one point. Now they are lucky to get 13000. Why is this? Cheat mods, Gold Rhino Professional Players, MM Matching top players against lower players, and the list continues to grow. BS people say but I beg to differ. I have played off and on since 2011. Yeah my player rate PR is low because I am not on 24/7 like some but, when I see someone who started 8/2019 with a PR of 7647 and a player that started 5/2016 with a PR rate of over 10k...the game is broken. You cannot tell me that they play a lot of I am a poor player.  Say what you will folks, the game is totally trashed by cheat mods, gold rhino professional players, and bad MM.  The programmers want money and they are allowing these things in hope people will buy more tanks, more mods, more ammo.  I have said this before...since 1.0 patch the game started its spiral to hell.  This game used to be fun to play and now it is a worthless heap of digital crap.  I beg the programmers to prove me wrong on what I posted. I beg the players to research each player that has joined in less than 3 years with rates of over 6k. if this were a poker game, I would win the pot because I have done the research and it shows that WOT is screwed.  Thank you WOT!

For one thing,they made xbox and playstation versions that took many away and now they cant seem to do anything right and can only come up with lame ideas like 2 barreled tanks.So the only way is down,tho many of us left are addicted to our tanks that we have and cant let them go,all the time wondering wthis going on.

There are cheats, yes.

 

They aren't as prevalent as you think. 

 

Playing well does not require cheats, just because you can't doesn't mean they can't.

 

And no, I play vanilla.

World of Tanks used to be the best rated and played game of this century.   This century is relatively young. WoT hit its peak only about 14 years into this century... online games are born, rise to their zenith, then decline... that's just the way it is.
 
A game that used to have on average on the US Server 24000 players at one point. Now they are lucky to get 13000.  Actually average peak time population used to be 40k+ and it's now about 20k. See above for why.
 
Why is this? Cheat mods, Gold Rhino Professional Players, MM Matching top players against lower players... All these things existed when WoT was rising to its 40k+ population peak, why do you believe they are the reason WoT has declined ??
 
I have played off and on since 2011. Yeah my player rate PR is low when I see someone who started 8/2019 with a PR of 7647 and a player that started 5/2016 with a PR rate of over 10k...the game is broken...I am a poor player.  Why do you feel that a player who re-rolled in 8/2019 and quickly achieved 7647 PR plus a player who reached 10k PR after 3.5 years play equals "the game is broken" ??  Do you believe that just because you haven't done it, no one should be allowed to do it ??
 
Say what you will folks, the game is totally trashed by cheat mods, gold rhino professional players, and bad MM. Nope... cheat mods have been in the game since day one and are not very powerful or plentiful due to the game being largely server-side and efforts to punish cheaters are in effect... baddies love to blame their baddie-ness on cheats, MM, and RNG. MM is better than it has ever been in this game right now and WG's decision 10 years ago to NOT use SBMM is still correct today.  What the heck is a "gold rhino professional player" ??
 
since 1.0 patch the game started its spiral to hell.  Nope, it simply followed a normal course of birth, zenith, decline, and is now in an approximate state of equilibrium.
 
This game used to be fun to play ...  It is more fun to play now than it has ever been, and it gets better in every passing year.

A few years ago it was not uncommon to see 25-30k on a weeknight and 35-40k on a holiday weekend.

 

Sigh.

[edited]. I think he means the people that know when to use gold because you won't do damage otherwise. So called Gold spammers.

We got old, left school, got jobs, house payments/rent, met people real life, going out more, got families, spouses, kids, expenses, need I say more. The fanbase is still there it just isn't on as much as it use to be. More work less play

Whats happening is wot is destroying the game. Its way to unrealistic random. The tanks are becoming unrealistic. The game is fast tracking people to 10's that dont have a clue what they are doing. All the major clans just keep winning pushing the average players out. Things keep changing and at the same time dont , people get sick of it and quit playing i Guess.

Still playing, still having fun. Personally, the game keeps getting better and better, with more options, better gameplay/graphics/and matchmaker. There have always been cheats/mods, that's nothing new. People will always spam gold, but it is part of the game. Some tanks just won't penetrate without it. It's all good, people come and go.

Serious overkill on the cash grab and not enough on the quality of life grab.  My opinion, anyway.

 

Just waaaaaay to much greed.  People are getting tired of it.

LOL, 5th out of all the games available is actually pretty good.  Especially for a decade old game.  Also, NA is a small part of WOT, the numbers are a "bit" larger if you include the other servers.  Regardless of the "WOT is dying" threads, the 4,000+ employees and 20-years of experience are still around because WG treats the game and metrics it has very seriously.

Yes, it does keep getting better in some ways. Still a very fun game to play.  All games peak and drop off, WOT has held up comparatively very well for a video game. Some of the new tanks they've come out lately have hurt the game for some and made more excitement for others.

 

Irregardless of the "the game is dying" crowd and doomsayers that have been around for as long as I've played the game WOT probably still has many  years of life ahead.

13k is not a correct number... it's more like 20k weeknights at primetime and 20+ on weekends.

New player here, played online games since 1998. 2003 eveonline kill the game I was playing, for a good reason, it was better.  I left EvE because it lost its newness and I could see the owners were struggling with the lack of edginess the game started with. WoT is a different game, easier to get into and the fun level is above the work level.

 

Though I miss the gold on my premium account, I understand why they took it away. f2p shouldn't be really free forever, some payment should be required to filter out the riffraff. 

 

After a month I have one T7 heavy, one T8 heavy, T6 medium. I Don't mind playing T10s in some games, but I may need to buy a new keyboard if I keep pounding the esc key with my fist LoL

WoT doesn't "take away" gold from any accounts... maybe you accidentally spent it ?

George I see you are still a WG shill that continues to spew garbage.

 

And your numbers are incorrect as usual.
