World of Tanks is absolutely rubbish. I really dont know where to start how to tell you what & why. First off I will tell you that their forum admins are totally nazi's, on par with the moderators here. If they dont like what you write, no matter how constructive it is, the post will be removed (well here you risk both warning & ban, and since I have just made 1 post in the WoT forum, recently, that was deleted, I am awaiting a warning or something similar which happens here. Time will tell). . To put it simple; World of Tanks is the ONLY game that makes me rage as much as I do when I play World of Warcraft. And I have even played Darkfall 1, 2 years after its release and I was continuously ganked for 3-4 months before I quit DF1, no wining or raging. . The worst game mechanic part with WoT is the Tiering system; meeting tier 5 tanks when youre Tier 3 is just depressing. You have absolutely nothing to do there. I just drive right forward as far I can get towards the enemy flag and give a good **** about the enemy untiul I die. Then I go to the garage and log into another tank. When the game is that unmotivating I would dare to say its a massive fail. . Without bothering too much to go into details how much this "free 2 play" game costs, I will only quote my friend who said once in frustration (heæs a fanboi) "this is definately the most costly F2P game in the world". I totally agree. If you are not willing to spend a fortune on the game you will be forever stuck on tier 4-6, and even then you have to play like a mad WHILE you are cannonfodder for tanks that are 2 tiers above you. . The only bright side I find about this game is staying tier 1 or Tier 2, which 90% of the time you will be Tiered against same tier tanks; find a fast tank or one you are comfortable and give a damn about the rest. It is just not worth it. . Get yourself the tier 2 Russian BT2 tank or the English Tier 2 Cruiser 3. Both are inccredible mobile and have great firing power. Those 2 are at least the ones I feel I can have somehwat "fun" with, without raging, and both of the are easily obtainable fully equipped with a 1 days of playing. . Good luck and try have some fun.

It's a good thing you didn't play arty or scouts.  I have Tier IV scout that gets into Tier IX games regularly.  My Tier V arty also gets into Tier IX games.  This is where the skill part comes in.

Tier III in a Tier V match?  I wish I had it so good ;)

A good player can play Tier VIII and make money.  A bad player can play Tier VIII premium and make money, or play non-premium Tier VI and make money.  Playing Tier X non-premium and making money is like making money in the NFL ... most of us just dream of it.

Unlike WoW, there is no reason (besides ego) to rush to cap (Tier X).  I have >7000 matches and am quite content to keep playing Tier III-IX until I get good enough to play Tier X.  If I never get good enough, that's fine with me; I have a good collection of fun tanks to play and never a shortage of folks to play with/against.

There is no "I Win" button.  If you demand that gratification come instantly and for low effort, then this game isn't for you.  Tier IV separates the noobs from the tankers.  Watch some tutorials and learn to play.

I haven't played the game myself, but I'm quite sure it has something called "Golden Bullets" that you can only purchase with actual money and it is substantially stronger than any other ammo in the game. It's a P2W game. If it actually had an "I Win" button it wouldn't be a game at all. However, as I just mentioned it allows for people to purchase power and hence have an advantage.

How much money have you sunk into the game?

All gold ammo can be bought with in game currency was changed about a year ago.  You do not need to spend a dime on this game and be just as competitive with any other tank ( it will just take you longer).  As for being in a match with tanks higher in tier than you it can suck sometimes.  Different tanks have Different strengths and weaknesses the game has a high learning curve and will crush people who try to Level too quickly.

umm T3 tanks can kill T 5 tanks though that seems odd that you are in those matches unless you are platooned up... which is then your fault.  my M3 stuart used to mess up some of the low rank KVs... while kiling one solo is near impossible do to weaker gun.. light tanks are scouts anyway O-o spot for TDs or arty then bug the fk out :/ 

honestly WoT is easy once you know the hit points of tanks :/ i dont have much trouble with my marder 2/hetzer/stug3 popping higher T tanks with standard shell (havent used gold since CB when i got it free back when gold rounds were OP)

 

learn your tank role and work as a team to kill shit.. its the smartest thing to do. as you get points for spotting and damage even if you dont get the kill.

Funny I saw a developer talking about future updates and he was chinese. And another funny point that all russian tanks are totally overpowered, if they would be that much nazi's why aren't the german tanks are overpowered?:s

I recommend avoiding the Chinese tech tree if I were you. Match maker can be brutal on the M5A1 light tank. And is the game really pay to win if a player chooses not to use in game advantages i.e. gold rounds bought at the silver price?

"Gold rounds".  I've never bought any.  The people who use them use them sparingly; they are very expensive.  Plus, you can buy them with in-game currency if you don't want to spend real money.  I play an average of ~35 games per day.  Loading gold rounds in every tank for every match would cost around $100 per day, or 100s of Ks of in-game credits.  Gold rounds don't matter very much anyway.  If you can't play well, all you do is waste money.  If you play well, they aren't necessary.  It's like buying a teeny little dog to carry around in your purse -  it's really only good for impressing other idiots.

The only money I've spent is for a premium account (about $15 per month) which gets me 50% more credits and XP from a match, and to buy additional garage slots for my tank collection.

I played as a freebie for the first few months I played.  It gets tough at Tier VI and I enjoy the game so much that I don't mind spending $15-$20 per month.  I've spent $15 per month (or more) to play WoW, EQ2, ST:O, WURM Online etc; and this game is more fun imo.

WoT is easy to pick up and play, but if you want to get good you have to really study the maps and learn the tactics.  Nothing you can buy will compensate for not learning the skills.

The only reason to avoid the game is during special events when players like the OP come out to play who have absolutely no idea how to play the game. In all other respects the game is good, not great but still good and quite fun with 2 other friends in a platoon :3.

The game is actually fun, and for a quick play and log out fun always welcomed.

The only problem I had with the game is that you can't catch up enough ingame Credits after a tier 7-8 tank. You will loose credits after every game, even after winning, without having premium.

In other words without a premium you can forget to play your Tier 8 tanks.

Farm credits with tier 5-6 tanks (the ones you like playing of course) to support your tier 8s, I have two thus far and am supporting them without any issues :3 (advice: go for the new german medium line and the british medium line, the tanks aren't cheap to repair at tier 8 but their ammo is cheaper than their counterparts).

The OP is right the tier drop system is broken, but otherwise WOT is a good game.

 

Is it perfect no, do I currently play it, no.   But do I pick it up every so often to play, yeah. 

So much crap, so little quality.

My KV-1 tells another story.:)

Why would I bother with tier 9 and 10 when the higher you go the bigger chicken you meet? Everyone camps and yells at each other when hit. Real men play tier VI tops. And it does not cost a dime.

No fate but what we make, so make me a ham sandwich please.

I've become dependent upon spell check. My apologies for stupid grammatical errors.

Echoing other people who played the game and had fun, I played the game and had fun. I didn't spend any money either. *shrug*

I wouldn't recommend avoiding the game, I would just say be conscious of what you're buying and keep in mind that skill does seem to play a role in the game.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

You think I am there to "make money"?? Are you for real?

Jeez. I am there to have FUN, not to fight some rich brats that have  full access to their millionaire daddys VISA and so are buying IWIN ammo.

FYI: I did play a scout, until I realized I got to meet Tier 8 as Tier 4. My "scouting" carrier ended right there & then.

If they made the Tier +/- 1 instead of 2 for "normal" tanks, and SAME Tier for all Premium tanks the game would be ALOT more appealing.

I made it to Tier 7 in my IS, 1 round cost me 1000 credits i can earn 15k credits on average.
If i get detroyed it costs me money and if i need to shoot alot....its even worse -_-

Its a fun game, but rely's heavy on you paying money to maintain fun or you end up as cannonfodder.
Some tanks are out of line and get matched versus brutal tiers where your rounds bounce off again and again and again...

This game could have been alot of fun, but i gave up after playing in Tier 7 for a month.
To much hassle and more often then not you end up versus players who pay to win.
