    WG Doesnt Listen to Testers

    My wallet is closed too. It's not any single change that did it, but their reckless handling of the game suggests the lifetime of it may be artificially shortened.

    Often times when a large corporation buys another large corporation, especially those that are old and well recognized, it will be called a merger. But have no doubt that Fiat bought Chrysler. Don't believe me? Look it up for yourself. A quick google search would tell you that Fiat purchased Chrysler's shares for 4ish billion dollars. And yes, Fiat owns Ram. Fiat owns lots of things. They didn't merge with anyone, but they execs at Fiat did roll Fiat and their acquisitions into a larger holding company.

    1) I think you might be employing some survivorship bias. Sure we remember the current car manufacturers, but long forgotten at the dozens and dozens of car companies that no longer exist. 2) GM took money from the US fed govt twice in its existence, plus a Ch 11. It exists because our federal government decided it should, and for no other reason. Chrysler was bailed out twice decades apart and was later acquired by a foreign company. Since 1980 something Chrysler has been independent from a foreign investor for 3 years. The only reason Americans consider it to be an American company now is because its foreign investors find it to be a convenient marketing tool. Otherwise we'd be buying Fiat Wranglers and Fiat Challengers. I mean, you even called them Fiat/Chrysler. 3)But sure, we could think of a better example - US investment banking firms. Some of them were in existence for over 100 years like as in since the US Stock Exchange started, and because of their hubris, some out and out died, and others were acquired by more limber, versatile banks and again the only reason they exist is because their investors find it easier just to keep its name around. The reality is that we don't need case studies to know that the business world is littered with companies that overdosed on hubris.

    10-15% drop in players since update?

    Do you have a source for this data? I'd like to look at more germane dates.

    10-15% drop in players since update?

    There are tables floating around here from maplesyrup that suggest it's a good deal more than 10-15%. We will get a more accurate value when ranked season is over.

    CVs still the scapegoat?

    This style of argument is lazy and/or dishonest imo. Post your full set of matches in a period or don't post any. Posting a single match tells not a single story. Or someone else can. Up to you.

    Wichita is finally on sale

    Yep, great posting by you and @KilljoyCutter. I guess I cool too much stuff because I ran out of coolness. Hopefully a WG person sees the idea and passes it onto a decision maker.
  14. Yeah, my observations are a teeny tiny part of the puzzle. Who knows?perhaps the CV hunting high risk style shim player will have their dam output increased? I suppose wg has the data on that.
