Maybe I have been away from WOT too long but I almost forgot this...
It's kind of funny now...
This turned into a good thread on what MWO should not do.
This and the matchmaker make me hope the servers of WoT melt like Chernobyl
. Spent money and kind of regret it like meeting some hot chick where I spent the night and waking up with a nasty cold sore on the upper lip the next day
. Not that it ever happened though
Problem with WoT, there is no reward for the time spent in some of the matches. I understand that the higher end tanks are supposed to eat credits, but a lesser tier tank cannot compete because the best way to make money is to hit the hull hitpoints and score as many hull hits as possible. Problem with those lesser tier tanks...they can't hit very often because of the thicker armor, that same armor negates the destructive power of HE, and for one shotting something you get far better rewards on average
such a the top tier being level 5 (KV = 18k winning the match) shooting several level 4, but for a KV to shoot a tier 9 means you have to hit at least 5-6 or more good shots to see some significant credits generated (baring a KV setting the ammo or fuel to explode) but the KV just blows up yet it cannot out run, bounce, or take a hit against a tier 9...but a tier 4 can usually out run a KV but the KV can't out run nothing. Most often, the lesser tier tanks end up being nothing but targets to get the matches started faster.
And the maps...been playing again for about a week or so. Same freaking maps more often then not, yet there has been at least 4 new released ones since I gave up last december when I quit for 5 months. Played a total of maybe 12 times on the newer maps, which again are the size of a ******* boxing ring and I am supposed to scout (which I will no longer do because of WoT's failure system) when its easy to assume...yeah they are comming that direction. Why? Most maps have a total of 3 lines of travel, choke points galore, and a easy / west or north south direction in a boxing ring sized arena.
And based on real world stats...yeah when you got X stat trumped by Y stat then X stat tank is obsolete, please don't bother to tell me to L2P when in fact Y Stat tank just has to aim at me and Y Stat doesn't even have to challenge himself (BTW, 152mm is very innaccurate to shoot fast moving tier 3/4 but KV isn't fast against a tier 9). I would love the challenge of selecting my own matches, a nice 3 tier spread (example, tier 5 middle and -1 or +1 from there...not +3 to minus 1 of a tier 5) is far more enjoyable then a its current form. If I wanted to challenge myself, then I will take on a tier 9 and not be forced to be conscripted from a lottery system just to fluff up Mr. IS-4's score card
