Plunging down hill game: 5.9 Worst update ever.
I’ve one of those fools with over 95000 battles. Been here since the beginning. Love the game, hate the game. As Wargaming continues to make this game more for children, and less for the older crowd, and making the tiers a free for all, no matter the skill level, the game is flat out not as interesting, or fun. Rage in the game is becoming an every battle problem due to the skilless toddlers (and other 40%ers) playing on the same teams as good players and unicums. Command a “left” side strategy, and you’ll surely see a nub go right, and more than one…. It has also become a unwanted challenge due to the increasing issues with lag, latency, packet losses, both outside of WOT and on their very own servers. The game crawls at times. Lag spikes are now as frequent as the clock ticks down. Ridiculous. As Wargaming is trying to make the game more intersting with various equipment changes, new tanks and such like, they ignore the 1000s of players cries for improved match making. Rather than listening to thier player that seriously play the game, they ignore them, and make the game more about the tanks battling the tanks instead of the players battling the players. You’ll see completely inept players (Im saying that nicely) in tier ten playing against far superior unicum 70%ers with over 2000 average damge. And some “JA” 30% (not even 40% these days) out trolling the game for God knows what reason. Why does Wargaming even allow this is beyond explanation. This last update, 5.9 is the worst yet. iPad users beware! The driver control has nearly lost all its accuracy and functionality. You’ll be a useless smoking dead tank until they fix the problem. I’ve watched my performances plunge into the abyss with this last update. Miserable. Do something Wargaming. This update was a total fiasco.
this game was great but it seems that the developers got very greedy, now shots vanish your tank performance is reduced in certain matches you hit the targets square and nothing happens also it seems that thier matchmaking program favors paying players so you only win if they allow it takes the fun out of the game because no matter how well you play with out a team you can never win….also the rating system favors paying players you find alot of bad players on the field with higher rating then yours?? thats my 2 cents and im deleting the game after playing it for 3 year now. if your a bot paying bot go ahead enjoy.
Bullies and Trolls
In the scheme of things, this is a well designed and maintained game, and despite what others have written, I've seen more expensive similar games to play.
The problem with the game is the hateful comments, ranging from degrading trollish attacks to suggestions of suicide, are out of control and the devs don't give you any meaningful tools to protect your privacy in-game. They implemented an "honor system" where you can grade other players for inappropriate coments in actual game play, but offer nothing to keep mean spirited players from direct messgaing after a game with their truely hateful attacks.
Game servers keep going down more and more
Matching of Players by Tier and Competency needs to be adjusted.
Graphics of game are good. Matching of Players by Tier and Competency of players need to be changed. Too many one-sided battles where one whole team is losing severely, while the other team suffers only one loss or no losses. Battles should be set up where all tanks within the battle are of the same tier. Also, the players should be matched based on their abilities.
I'll put on my tin foil hat and say there is an element of "rigged" matches. Sometimes the RNG is placing you in a bad batch of teams the entire session you're on. Sometimes the in-game play just singles you out.
I get hit by a weak tank and it knocks my driver out. I have a repair kit, a multi puprose restoration pack to heal crew members and put out fires, and adrenaline loaded on that tank. So I use the multi purpose restoration kit to heal the driver. The kit has a first aid kit, a repair kit, and a fire extinguisher. On that weak tanks very next shot it sets my tank on fire and reduces my HP to near zero. Effectively minimizing me to my team since the multi purp restore kit was in cool down mode now. I am only the 2nd tank destroyed in the match but the results showed I was the 3rd most productive on the team. So when I caught fire I had been the most effective player. Seems RNG wanted me out of the match. But that's just my take. It does happen too often.
Great game but...
This is a great game but there are ups and downs such as you need artillery plz it will make the game so much funner. LOL
I think I have written a review on apps maybe twice in my life. I am writing this review to give what I consider to be an accurate evaluation. First, you don't have to pay at all if you are willing to very slowly work your way up the ladder. The tanks people buy in most cases do not have an advantage over the tanks you earn by experience. Second, I think it is appropriate to pay someone for their hard work that you benefit from. It is reasonable that they should design this game in a way that allows, but not requires people to pay. Third, from time to time Wargaming makes changes I don't like as a player, but the game is still lots of fun and I enjoy playing it with my sons. The game deserves five stars in my opinion.
Great Game to much grind
I have been playing this game for over 2 years for a reason. Its free to start, and easy to learn the game. NOT much skill required to play, but hard to master. The only complaint I have of this game is once you get to the higher tier tanks , 6 and above it seems that if you don't pay and are just average you go in the hole,negative ingame credits, for just playing if you use consumables and armour piercing shells. It is almost impossible to achieve a tier 8 or above tank without purchase. I believe if the higher tanks would be achievable that even more player would venture toward World of Tanks Blitz.
WOT-Blitz gone south
By Brad NM
A great game turned south due to $$$ hungry War Gaming. The game appears to favor those who pay to play, and not the knowledge or skill level acquiring to progress through the various tank tiers. The match-making program is broken, as it does not take into consideration the winrates, skill level, or number of battles the individuals on the team, only the type & tier of vehicles in queue. Other than that great fun.
