Feel free to head back to the fetid confines of a tank as opposed to the bracing sea air of WoWs: not to mention the general nastiness over there. There must be hundreds of players like myself that bailed out from WoT... this is supposed to be fun right? A modicum of polite interchanges and respect?

Ships at sea lend themselves more to that ideal.

Tbh, ever since I saw Jingles' Frontlines video I've been considering reinstalling Tanks. I just hope that my progress wasn't wiped when I uninstalled.

I think part of the issue is the influx of steam players are hitting the mid-high tiers 7-8 at the same time en masse.

i wish the server numbers were there to justify MM taking win rate into account. If not per ship at least average team.  Might be doable. I would rather see that than the mirror MM that was implemented last patch.

Just humor and satire....BUT I am not really over the top here.  I played WoT 3 years and saw MUCH worse stuff than I paraphrased. Much worse. Carry on mate and let the cool sea breezes blow yer hair and lighten your spirits. I do now begin to see some of the WoT crap here.  Not a lot.  But on occasion.  I knew it would happen eventually...just hope it is rare.  Carry on mate. :Smile_honoring:

Since teams are random, the only real common denominator on your teams, is you. I am not saying it is your fault that your teams are losing more than winning. I am also not saying it isn't you. It is easy for people to throw blame around, but it is hard for them to hold on to it for themselves.

I had to take a double take on that one too.

Yea.  It's like when people are boating they wave to each other, and smile and stuff.

But driving our tanks on the freeway; well, we wave one finger at each other and scowl.

Plus 1.  +1. But my God the freeways will drive ya nuts. Nuts.  Lucky I don't have to drive em much anymore....cept when I go to Chicago to visit my daughter.  NUTS.  My nerves just cannot take it anymore. Try I-90 in rush hour. O wow. 80 mph.  Or more, bumper to bumper. DC is worse (just one huge traffic jam) and in my experience Boston is INSANE! Not so fast but crap driving.  Crap...heh.  Ha.  Sorry Boston.  Have not been to LA in 20 years however. Thankfully.

 

Additional thought!  Thank Hitler and Ike (Eisenhower). Hitler built the autobahns in the 1930's and when Ike saw them in WWII he was sold on the idea and we began the freeway system in the 1950's during his presidency. I remember that well. Huge project.  Thank Ike and Hitler.  Ha! :Smile_teethhappy:  I am old fashioned I do reckon. :Smile_popcorn:Build em and they will come. As they have.

Same here, but I stopped myself since I've vowed not to touch tanks until there is PvE content.

I really don’t miss tanks.  After 19k games I dropped it like a rock when ships came out.   Tried one game about a year ago.   Died fast.   A lot has changed.  Now there are all kinds of whacky indicators showing where you are getting hit from and stuff.   It was distracting and I didn’t really care for the experience.

I probably couldn’t even be competitive in the tanks I used to play and enjoy.  I’m sure even my Type 59 has been power crept by now.

Ships all the way.  Loving it!

I had WoT installed just to take advantage of any specials on premium time or the like. Probably have a dozen games there, all I know about the game is from watching Jingles. Without a PvE mode, just not interested in the game. I have no clue what everything means, watched the first "training" video that Wargaming suggested and the very first line was "play a game" and I thought that was stupid. I did recently play one game, just kind of follow everyone else around and blast away. When I got out of the game I had received all sorts of stuff I had no clue what to do with like coffee, honey buns, pot pies, etc. All I could think of is just how stupid all this stuff was, probably will never play it again.

I am staying in world of warships till it is unbalanced beyond belief like tanks is at tier 8. I don't care about a fresh coat of paint I care about results so far the biggest problem are unsolved unbalanced premiums at higer tiers and prem shells. I have gotten a lot more done in 2,500 battles than 7,000 + battles in tanks. Tanks is flawed and needs a massive overhaul in mechanics to be successful in the long term.

WoWS is a million times more balanced. It's sad how bad WoT is. You would think after 8 years they could have tried to change gold ammo. Just once. Or maybe reduce crew skill power creep. Or improve the game economy so you can play at high tiers. Or reduce equipment costs so you don't have to grind premiums for months on end to have a level playing field with a 50k whale. Or buff historically underperforming tech trees like the Leopard 1.

There are so many things that infuriate me about WoT, but WoWS is balanced enough that most of the time, I can only blame myself or my team. That can still be aggravating, but I feel like I have more control over my performance here. WoT is feast or famine. Sometimes you have insane rounds and other times you are in such a [edited] situation that you just farm a few thousand damage and go back to the garage. There truly are not many WoT matches where I can earnestly look at the result and say "I matter." Most of the time, I would have to do something physically impossible like 20k damage and a Rasaineai Heroes medal to have a chance of winning. This problem worsens with the template matchmaking because you're permanently bottom tier.

The best part about WoWS is that even when I'm bottom tier, fundamentally sound mechanics overcome differences between tiers. Heck, sometimes a lower tier ship is objectively superior. Here, it's really just a number and I love that. I don't have to worry about anything. I just focus on the team comp and try to win. The playing field here is about as level as can be.

I bailed on WOT console after the backstabbing they gave the STs last year and I have not looked back.

Got to pick a time when you feel better players to your style of play are on. Mine is about 7-9pm EST. Many smart team players. If you play after the kiddies are out of school or on weekends you are in sorry shape looking for smart team play.

Actually, front line kind of does look cool. Been watching a couple a streamers playing it. Plus a couple of youtube vids on it as well.
