  1. Yep, ultimately this is the only thing that can ever truly hurt WG. By playing the game in any fashion you are supporting their product. If you give them any money at all then they're laughing at you. The only question anyone should ask themselves are 1) Do I feel good about supporting WG by playing the game and 2) If I don't care enough about 1 to stop playing, does the game itself warrant my continued time and effort. If either of those question are yes, and you keep playing, you're just another player that WG don't care about. If you quit they still don't care, but at least you aren't actively benefitting WG.. It's a such a shame the core of this game could be so good with a different company in charge.

    Jingles comments on the "apology"

    It won't. Both of those organisations are operated by the computer industry itself. They aren't an EU or UK or US regulatory agency run by the government, and I imagine that for a company based in Russia, their views mean as little as ours do. And the ESA (the Entertainment Software Association that runs the ESRB) supports loot-boxes anyway. These industry groups don't exist for our benefit. They exist for the benefit of the capital interests that run them. The ESA and their European versions will spend literal BILLIONS of dollars if required in fighting any legal regulatory changes to stop lootboxes, gambling mechanics, pay to win mechanics & fake currency usage.

    First game in Ranked with Subs...

    Right before I quit (I'm here for the popcorn for a few days) the subs were doing testing, and in one match I was in a DD and an opposition sub was spotting me while I was in smoke and I couldn't see him, and another where a sub spotted me while I was in smoke while I couldn't see him, and his spotting allowed a DD in his smoke to blast me. It's terrible game design.

    WG's worst nightmare???

    Their "worst nightmare" is people stop playing and ruining the experience for the whales funding the game, and causing them to be unhappy.

    Anyone Monitoring the RU Forums?

    I wonder why anyone would sign up to be a volunteer for anything WG does considering how much contempt they hold for everyone who isn't a staff member.

    WG gets ZERO credit

    Yes, I should be more clear, I mean in terms of when WG do XYZ changes, that it impacts negatively on their income, not specifically that they actually lose money.

    WG gets ZERO credit

    WG change the game because it's losing them money. They don't care about anything else, even your forum post defending them. There's nothing inherently wrong with money being the key, but that focus on money comes at a cost to how good the game is.

    CV/No CV game modes

    Funny how people who claim that CV's are balanced, that most players don't care about CV's, and that only low skill noobs want to play without CV's in the game, are so vehemently against a no CV mode. Surely they'd be better off without all the anti-CV noobs right?

    "Pelt collecting" needs to stop

    So you're saying that it's only when a team has to smurf and get boosted AND be carried by a division that killing carriers is easy? Wow, that sounds like Carriers are OP and need to be nerfed. Good argument :) I agree.
  10. You have to be blind to not realise that subs, commander rework and CV's are massively disliked by the community.
  11. Don't compare me to that Orange fraud. My opinions do represent the majority. They also represent the vast majority of the high tier players.
  12. You don't need to "measure" this (but I'm certain that if I had access to WG's stats I'd be able to show a long term trend downward in terms of game quality). It's an inherent part of an online multiplayer game, that the larger and the better your talent pool of players are and the higher quality the game itself, the better experiences will exist for the players. The lower the quality of the player pool, the lower quality ceiling of the game, the less likely a game is to be a long term success. Also, WG isn't necessarily 'required' to actually want their game to be better. They want their game to be more profitable. Those aren't the same thing.
  13. By producing better matches & increasing the level of gameplay in random, ranked & clan games. This provides a richer gameplay experience and gives players who want to be good a way to develop at higher levels. I'd remove the entirely or introduce a noCV queue system, but sure, nerf them into oblivion. They don't work, they hurt the game. Always have, always will. The more CV's are nerfed the better the game will be. They have already been tested. They're going to be rammed into the game at some point for the same reason that WG push CVs, because it's wasted developer effort otherwise (and they want to sell new premiums). It will harm the game even more.
  14. Yes it will. Because those new players will not be the long term, high quality players that used to play the game. The quality of the player base will suffer. And because of the aforementioned problems, the actual quality of the game itself is poorer. The experience is poorer. Which will lead to more players quitting. Do you remember the days where Tier 3s could end up in triple CV matches? Do you think that helped or hurt how many players quit the game early in their 'career'? These changes (CV never getting nerfed, Subs, Commander Rework) are doing the same right now, and it will get worse over time. If the gameplay is bad, and the players are bad, it will erode the long-term playerbase. Because it's the last step, the raging against the dying light before people give up, there will be people who have spent thousands on the game reaching this position. "This is me reaching my breaking point" when they get angry on the forums. When there's no response to issues that are killing enjoyment of the game for you, the next step is to give up.

    The heat WG is getting isn't deserved

    The OP showed up here after less than 350 real PVP battles handing out "advice". It's perfectly acceptable to look into the player giving advice to determine if that advice is coming from someone who should be listened to.
