Five Reasons World of Tanks Fails
Well laddies and gents I think I have finally reached a breaking point. I have watched this game degrade from some time now and its just beyond repair. I just cant see any logical reason to continue PAYING World of Fucking Tanks a single red cent.
My hesitations to continue playing started back in 2013 when I attended a meet and greet in Mobile Alabama. If you have read that article, then you would have a pretty good understanding on my mind set. You can view the post here. http://exposingwot.com/blog/2017/08/09/how-wargaming-fucked-me/
Aside from how fucked up that was, there have been many other things that are so ludicrous it blows my mind. So, for the purpose of a nice little vent, lets go over them!
The Type 59 – The Type 59 was introduced as a premium tank and it was very popular. It was op, no doubt. Thousands of players, including myself, purchased this little beast. The glory was short lived though because the douche bags at WG headquarters decided it would be a great idea to nerf the shit out if it. No refunds.
So big deal right. They simply noticed that the tank was op and fixed it. Good for them. Right? Well its not like these tanks go thought any testing. However, I was forgiving and we all moved forward.
The T26E4 SuperPershing – So much hype of this tank it hit Youtube channels everywhere. Once again, an overpowered premium tank was released… and I bought it. Then the following happened. Here is Proof. It is posted directly on their website
The frontal armor of the T26E4 SuperPershing is not currently representative of its historical counterpart and its performance may see a dip once the 8.6 Update is released — due to overall gameplay changes coming with this update. As a result, we’ll be temporarily be removing this vehicle from the in-game store. Players who already own this tank will still have the ability to play it.
The changes for the T26E4 SuperPershing will not arrive in time for the 8.6 Update, but when we’ve finished tinkering it’ll once again become available. Which update that will occur in has yet to be determined. Most of the changes will center around altering the armor angles of the frontal plates, and an exact list of the changes will be provided in a future article. Owners of the T26E4 SuperPershing, who purchased the vehicle prior to the changes, will have the opportunity to sell it for the full retail price in Gold (7,200).
Right, historical accuracy. This was rhetoric tossed around back then. Players had a hard time with this concept because the game isn’t fucking historically accurate!
HD model upgrade – WG Sneaky little way of nerfing a tank without telling you. So now they can simply change a tanks armor characteristics and you wouldn’t even know it. That is until you take it out on the battle field and noticed its playing differently. They do this all the time.
Power Creep – The situation where updates to a game introduce more powerful units or abilities, leaving the older ones under powered. WIKI
For an example of this, lets take a look at the Type 59 and the Type 54 mod 1. Both of these tanks are premium tier 8 medium tanks. I configured both of these tanks with 100 crews, perks, and modules for the purpose of comparing the two.
Now take at look at the IS-6 and the Object 252U
This is clearly a power creep. You can deny it, but it doesn’t change the fact that newer tanks are introduced to the game rendering older tanks under powered and useless.
Number Five – The deliberate removal of a tank from the tech tree, making it a premium tank, and replacing it with a newer seriously op as fuck tank.
Why do this? It does make sense for the purpose of tank progression, to have players grind from a light tank to a light tank. However, so many other tank lines grind from light tanks to medium tanks. Why remove the tank though, why not just move it to a medium tech tree. This is poor planning on WG’s part and a clear attempt to exploit its player base for more money.
How about more examples you ask. I mean surely this is just a fluke right?
So there you have it. Five good reasons WOT fails!
