Not going to provide any links just personal experience feedback.

If you used to play WoT and stopped due to the awful matchmaking...it has improved greatly since 3rd April when the new algorithm was implemented. Single tier matches are far more common (so far) as are though with +/-1. Premium ammo still exists though is seemingly being fired a lot less.

That's the good news.

Bad news is that on the NA server WG clearly needed a cash grab and is selling the leFH18B2. For those that don't know this is the Nik/Kami of the WoTs world and is arguably the filthiest entity in the WG universe.

So yes try out WoT again but stay away from any tier 5 matches.

Already have that little monster, but I no longer play WoT. Pay2Win Gold ammo was the deal  breaker for me...and there is more bad news if you've watched Quickbaby's latest video, there is a new type of premium account in the testing phase that enables an even greater disparity between paying and free accounts. It's pretty bad.

WoT=wouldn't play it again even if WG paid me.

Yes lols like they migrated warships premium to tanks. So soon you’ll need to purchase game specific premium instead of universal premium time if that is how you roll.

I hated WoT economy so much I just bought a hellcat and only play that. A 5 skill crew later and it is a complete God. Fast, and bat crapcrazy view range. When I'm bushed up I will outspot anything. Then it's just cutting lose with that 90mm.

 

Was actually top 10 in NA monthly in M18 and M56 this fall when I was taking a WoWS hiatus. Both are sweet tanks.

 

Point is, if there truly is +1/-1mm, oh boy. Gonna club some serious nubs next time I have a WoT craving

I tried playing it again a few times, but because I play from Australia I can't really play properly since the US server merge with the high ping and lag that isn't present, honestly the toxic facist playerbase there nearly made WG destroyed the very game that brought them together with the elimination ingame global chat... but will give WoT a go again for their new mm mechanics, through I play the game fun(since my long absence from it has degrade what was once my semi decent skills there, and unwilling to invest time to git gud there) and leave my play to win and competitiveness on ships.

I have premium time and never got past tier 4 or 5.  Premium ammo and getting blapped by premiums made it easy to stop playing.

Yeah... I get that a gaming company needs to make money, but premium ammo has got to be the grossest's f2p idea yet. For all of WoWS's faults, at least it doesn't have that...

WoT is close to pay to win.  To close for my liking. I just got sick of matches where many players were ONLY shooting gold ammo.  $$$$$$$

Ohohoh, I played WoT on the console. Japanese heavies and premium ammo were not a combo you wanted. So much pain and suffering, but oh so many LoLs with oversized guns.

Here's a link to the upcoming changes to WoT premium accounts. Some decent changes with a couple of very questionable P2Win aspects that I sincerely hope never make their way to WoWs...but I wouldn't be surprised if it did.

I very rarely play WOT anymore. When I do it's almost always a lopsided win or lose within five minutes.

I have not played WOWS much since the CV rework.
