Shooting long, shooting short, missing stationary targets, small damage with a large gun, and tanks can see us from our tracer. Why do I think we're not welcome anymore?

(Responding to the title, rather than the OP's post content.)

 

I have picked up on that, apart from making and posting only in "official threads", that there is more-or-less no meaningful staff interaction anymore. The only presence I feel these days is Volier_Zcit.

 

Although I have to say, the best gossip is now happening on Reddit as opposed to here, because the way the rules of this place is being carried out in such a harmfully-compulsive manner is just plainly defeating the entire purpose of having a forum board in the first place.

 

I've been monitoring the Warships forum for the last 9-10 days, and there's been a lot of staff presence over there, and I do not mean that from a moderation standpoint. If you ask me, they are setting a somewhat higher bar-to-jump-over than what's happening here, and I think the team on this side of things can learn lots from the Warships team.

I had a battle this-morning where my M46 missed every single shot (9 iirc) despite a good crew. 2 shots landed in the dirt in front of me.

 

I was having serious thoughts about my client being broken.

I don't remember the last time I saw an official WoT moderator make a meaningful contribution in the forums.

 

All we ever get from WG is more pay-to-win slaps in the face.

 

The Spirit of War grind is beyond ridiculous, even for the most committed players, and even the new field modifications are just more pay-to-win grinds.

I'm not asking you this question, but I am keen to know why threads now just vanish rather than the way they used to pre-2017 and end up in the locked section with information who took the decision to do so and their reason. As of today, everything is done silently and undocumented. Accountability is good for trust-building.

I think it intoxicated their success and increased their hunger for money but I think they will get the opposite or at least I will not invest another penny in this game too soon this with great certainty

Its a measure of how badly they have screwed up over there. Sinking ship- all hands on deck and man the bilge pumps.

 

Over in tank land the approach is best maybe keep a low profile and the natives wont notice.

Apparently the job of community manager  does not involve engaging with players on the company's forums. It only involves announcing the latest resale of a power crept trash premium from 2014  and the winner of the macaroni tank model contest honoring the heroes of D-Day.

Committed nothing... when even top tier Unicums like Quickybaby are saying the grind for one is ridiculous, you know its bad.

The 1.12 buff of armor against spall damage and stun from HE has pretty much ruined Arty as an effective force in the game. The XP for Arty effort is way down. In November 2020 I ranked 64th on the server in the G.W.E100 with a rating of 4,579, and in August 2021 I ranked 17th with a rating of a 3,341 (a 28% drop in XP, with Mastery victories in August and a higher ranking on the server). The new choice of rounds offers no advantage, the shell arch's are lower and with less team assisting stun and they ricochet with direct hits. Arty no longer is a contender for top XP in random battles, even while earning a Mastery ranking performance.

 

WOT needs to improve Arty HE damage and stun if they want to keep good Arty team players. I get that Arty enrages campers parked out in the open who get 25% damage per shell, but encouraging movement of opposition players has always been one role of good Arty teamwork and that role has been rendered almost useless. Close groups of opposing tanks no longer scatter due to the current excessively limited stun and damage, removing another role of Arty team play.

 

Fix Arty for better competition.

Investing time and / or money in SPG and LT tier 6 or higher is a WG scam. :angry:

....you are RIGHT-ON.......wanted to add that I am an experienced arty player and that experience makes me aware of the adaptations i need to make when arty is part of the game  and I am playing a TD or tanks.....I rarely get my [edited]kicked by arty.....KNOW YOUR ENEMY.

I remember the days when a shot-gun up the rear of an enemy tank was almost certain death. God, I miss the days when a decent arty player would routinely score 2-4 kills (often against full-HP targets) in an ORDINARY battle.

 

Now, players in heavy tanks will ignore a single hit from arty, and even tanks with thin armor, such as the hellcat, will regularly shrug-off a direct hit from arty.
