I was excited to hear that once we could possibly have 5 man platoons which would be great (even if premium) and I guess that never happened. I voted other to put that option since I enjoy the game play with a huge bunch of my friends all at once in the same battles. Even if on the other side because there is no greater feeling than killing someone you know or in your clan that you know is a good player! Its especially fun to play with them and help as a true team player working toward the same goal! To me that would make this game ultimate! This is just not the same thing as a Tank Company as those you are not allowed to think since you are under a commander with orders as opposed to the random anything goes, think on your feet-public matches!
So therefore, my vote is for other-larger platoons would be ultimate fun filled feature or improvement, especially since I have 8 of my real life friends playing this game with me now.
Thanks for asking!

2) Tighter tier spread for match making ...(tired of trying to damage an E-100/ IS-7 in my panther II)
3) Educate the dumb ass matchmaker that Heavy and medium tanks are not equals....tossing in a couple TD's doesn't make it balanced.
4) Reduction of artillery per match to 3 MAXIMUM even less per match the higher the tier.
5) preferably an "arty free" game mode, but I know this will never happen.
Every player "trying to win as a team" faces disadvantage enough with careless, stupid, unskilled players, and bad personal decisions during a match. The above only compound the overall frustration incurred.

I have a hard time understanding how MM works, or is supposed to work. If I'm in a tier 5 tank, I get stuck in a tier 8 battle. If I'm in a tier 8 tank, I get stuck in a tier 10 battle.Can someone explain why we can't have straight tier battles? Why not have light tanks, TD's, and SPG's for each tier? That way, you could have a tier 5 battle period, or a tier 8 battle period, etc. I realize my T 50 is a scout, but it gets a little frustrating being cannon fodder for 4 or 5 battles before being able to actually fight with it for 1 fight.

-> MM issues, deal with it. You're gonna have a bad time until a seriously large number of people play this game. This is because the matchmaker doesn't have a huge crowd to choose from so it's forced to put people in games where they shouldn't be.
-> Moar game modes: Sure what the hell, but this isn't the most important thing IMHO
Here is what I think are things that make people not like WoT as much as other F2P games: (this is gonna be a longish post)
->No *good* dev/community relations
Honestly I look at the posts on the homepage and the forums and I get this feeling that the devs just don't care about what the players want. Game has been out for years and they have basically added very little important changes. Bugs that have been around for years go unfixing. The MM is the penultimate example of community negligence. People like it when they know that their complaints are heard and acted on. the devs could learn from this
->Paying for Garage slots
Please read this through before you dismiss it as THIS GUYS A NOOB FREELOADER BLAH BLAH BLAH. I bought at least $75 into this game over the course of a year, and I have 18 total garage slots and I own a Churchill(I bought it because it's British then fell in love with the 6pdr) so I've put my precious money into this game, which for a poor college student(I study Software Engineering so I can laugh at this games 'engine') is a huge deal. On to my points. First things first paying for garage slots means that you have to sell your tank to get a new one unless you want to fork out 300gold for another slot. This also means you can only work on a couple of things at a time(money grab) without paying for more slots. This also means that you can't collect tanks and just stare at them for long periods of time or go back and play your old favorite tanks for nostalgia's sake. Or you are like me and hold on to your M4/PzIV/Hetzer because you like having historically accurate tanks. Okay now to the advantages of allowing free or perhaps credit cost(Nothing ridiculous like over 50k) garage slots: This would encourage people to branch out more, and allow them to have more tanks at any given time meaning there is more things for them to do, ergo people are spending more time on this game. Not only that but because you have more tanks, you now have more things to research at once, which means you aren't necessarily grinding one tank at a time now you are grinding several tanks at a time which is even more time consuming. Because of this people are more likely to spend money on this game so they can grind faster because now magically they are spending a hell of a lot more time grinding their 30 tanks at once. All in all it's nothing but win for the developers because they will make more money in the long run from people trying to grind many tanks at once(not to mention premium consumables/ammo/cammo!!!) than a handful of people paying for extra garage slots and the players will be happy because they can have as many tanks as they want.

READ the MM FORUM and head WG. You'll never get a good subsription rate on the NA server if people are quitting BECAUSE of the MM! FRUSTRATED PLAYERS = EX-PLAYERS. Offering more content (game modes, bigger maps and more tanks) is a panacea because in the end, players will quit playing after all of that anyways because they are totally frustrated on having been matched in those new game modes, with the bigger maps having the new tanks and still finding that they are fodder for those same Tier 8-10 tanks.

Whatever you Dev's did to the track damaging model, please reset it to previous settings (before the 7 series patches)
Tracks get destroyed every time now instead of just damaged as before. It was pretty frustrating before you changed it. Not even repair kits, and having 100% repair skill makes much difference once they turn red, which seems to be every time they get hit regardless of what hits you. All this change has done for the game is cause people to camp more since you can't get across any open spaces before being blasted because the tracks are junk, and cannot be repaired as fast as they once were.

I get that too on occasion. When one is playing sniping German vehicles, esp TDs, it can really ruin your day.

You know, you're right. Improved Matchmaker has 925 votes... That's not even half! Meanwhile every other choice combined has 1036. Clearly, "everything other than matchmaker" is a higher priority.
(Some people really do think this way)
