INTJ, fun is fun except when it's not

Great game, other than a couple months break from it I've been tanking most days :P


The only real minus to me are the gold rounds but you don't encounter them constantly so it isn't too bad.  Overall this is a great game for anyone who likes teamwork based PvP and likes a game you can login for 10-20-30 minutes, get a few matches and logout again.  Great for casual play, imo.


Am ready for some x5's this will prompt me to finally maybe buy my Ferdinand, AMX 50 100, 4502A, T-44, Panther, some of the multitude of tanks I've been putting off buying lately, lol.

If you play the game past tier 5, you'll be paying. Not that that is a horrible thing, the price when you buy premium for a month is comparable to other MMO's. Just don't give in to the temptation I did and keep a bunch of elite tanks around and farm the xp for conversion to "free xp"... free xp isn't ;) lol. I spent more on gold to convert that xp than a couple years worth of sub money to a normal MMO. I learned my lesson.


Now I play mostly low level tanks to build up cash (credits), and the odd higher tier battle when I need to blast stuff big time. Having 22 tanks made my old habit of doing the "daily" double xp gain for a win thing take HOURS ;). Now I play 3-5 matches a night on average, and it's fun, and free.

No man controls my destiny... especially not one who attacks downwind and stinks of garlic.

This game is very popular in Russia, I have no doubt of those numbers.


 


It's also not a pay to win game, if you had played it you would not say that.  It's got some issues that piss me off royally, but it's not pay to win.  People just see that you can buy gold ammo and automatically think pay to win, it's not.  You will not encounter them very often if at all. 


 


It is a fun game and you can play it casually.  I play for free right now when I feel like it.

Play that tier 8 and nothing else. Tell me how that works out for you ;)

Me:

Battles Participated: 3 982
Victories: 2 204 (55%)
Defeats: 1 683 (42%)
Battles Survived: 1 065 (27%)

I do better than most ;).

Shanks123 on the other hand.... ;)

Battles Participated: 1 417
Victories: 682 (48%)
Defeats: 709 (50%)
Battles Survived: 264 (19%)

And I don't see any tier 8 vehicles listed ;) Maybe that isn't you.... but I bet it is. :)

So you have the time to grind big deal, the 99% of the rest of us do not.  A good gold ammo player will always own you anyways.  You can mock it all you want, it is still a pay-to-win game not to say you can't have fun at the lower levels, but like any the so called f2p games, if you want to play with the big boys, you can end up spending a lot.

Marketing spin is fantastic nowadays. Currently there are ONLY 1800 players playing simultaneously at almost any given time. This means, that on average, they have roughl 250,000 unique people logging in per week. Take note that it doesn't mean they're GAINING 250,000 per week. It means they do NOT have 24million players, but only around 250k.

 

Also, ANY registered account EVER is counted as a "Player", and they NEVER look @ activity, only registration. Not to mention the fact that WoT is so BADLY unbalanced & Pay-To-Win it's rediculous. Friend of mine has dropped around $4000 into the game since it launched (he manages 5 stores in my area...go figure?) and he has a higher rating than me, but a lesser kill-ratio. Meaning, since he had the money to BUY tier-8 GOLD tanks & get into higher fights earlier than me he's roughly a YEAR ahead of me in XP.

 

I still beat him in 1v1 duels so it's "OK" i guess :P? Money does NOT equal skill ....just saying!

You, sir, are a liar.


To say that only 1800 people are on at any given time is a complete fabrication. It makes me think you don't play the game at all to throw out such a ridiculous number. In fact, last night there were over 26,000 on. Yesterday morning there were 13,000. Not 1,800, but 13,000, in the morning, on the east coast.


I have been playing this game since closed beta and the numbers have been steadily rising. Just a few months ago you would see 18-20k on at prime time, max. Now it's in the mid 20's.


Fun game. Get into a good clan, get on TS, laugh at how terrible some players are and enjoy the comraderie.

So Shanks123 here is the same Shanks123 there?  BTW stats mean little other than epeen stroking for those that fail at the ultimate MMO - life.

 

Notice your name here isn't the same on the WoT official site.............hummmm.

You, sir, are a liar.


To say that only 1800 people are on at any given time is a complete fabrication. It makes me think you don't play the game at all to throw out such a ridiculous number. In fact, last night there were over 26,000 on. Yesterday morning there were 13,000. Not 1,800, but 13,000, in the morning, on the east coast.


I have been playing this game since closed beta and the numbers have been steadily rising. Just a few months ago you would see 18-20k on at prime time, max. Now it's in the mid 20's.


Fun game. Get into a good clan, get on TS, laugh at how terrible some players are and enjoy the comraderie.

Dont forget the russian and Euro servers...Hvent logged into Euro..but played on teh Russian for a bit..saw 3 servers..and the one I logged into had around 150k players..though that might mean 150k players through the 3 servers, irregardless, that's a lot of folks playing and more than likely enought to bring the numbers Wargamming Stated...is there gonna be some marketing spin on  it..sure..but for the most part they are "close"

Some of you forget the game is free to play. They will not delete any accounts (IMO) because someone may come back and play the game  again when they get board of killing computer run mobs. The biggest thing going for the game is your playing against players and not a computer program. I know of a few players that haven't spent a dime on the game. It's harder to level and make money in game but you can be done. Once you max out your crew training and equip your vehicle with the highest equipment you can research for your tank you will be on even ground with everyone else that buys premium. The only thing Premium give you is more credits per match.
