And for Pete's sake step up the advertising.  You need to spend a little to increase player base.  Spend money to make money or you will get to the point where it is too late for the game in NA.  You actually do have a great product idea here so don't mess it up. And be more supportive of this forum.  We are here to help you as much as ourselves.  Adios

 

 

This, I think WG expected more crossover from WoT but unfortunately the 3D movement environment seems to turn off most of the tankers. They need to get players from outside the WoT universe. Something that would help would be getting the game onto Steam as WT is which would go a long way to what I said in the previous sentence.

While I agree with the post and the points contained ... I think it does a disservice to all to by "taking a break" or "going on Strike".

 

The number of members are not increasing and in fact slowly getting less & less ... the most important points noted above regarding the low population are #1 & #2.

 

I have seen times when the playing population is back down to the 300-500 members.

 

To lose the full participation from KEY person's such as pappabear does not make this game any better.

 

 

Well who wants to do a service to a company like WG who ignores every thread sayin' the same thing?

 

Hell the last time a decent player left the whole thread was sayin the same thing the guy who quit did. I posted simply WG should take notice and that it's entirely their fault, which it is, because we ain't devs. Next thing I know forum banned for 3 days. Course like I said, they can ban, and delete...anything, and everything almost, just not the problems. So again let me repeat:

 

WG

Another player quits/takes a break

It is entirely your fault.

By having key players leave, smart companies would sit up & take notice of this & wonder why.

For the population to keep going as if nothing is wrong will NOT help the game get better.

With people leaving, WG would want to do something to keep them along with trying to gain new players.

 

We are getting more and more proof etc that MM is broken and WG still ignores it. With the wowp version of xvm now running, we are seeing more and more stacked matches. And for the record, I am not saying the stacking is intentional, before someone tries to berate me for it. But the fact remains that it does happen.

ALTHOUGH, I think someone said that 1.2 was to have MM changes?

 

Will have to wait & see.

It's time to take a break till some of the things in this game are fixed. The game is supposed to be fun and it isn't at the moment. It's more like clocking in for work.

 

Most of the reasons have been brought up in other threads but here are just a few.

 

1. Troll flights

2. Match maker

3. Repeated nurfs to certain planes.

4. Low population

 

These are just a few.

 

I'll still be active in the forums and willing to answer any question I can.

I have been on that buss for over a week now pappa , see you in a tank !

I had no idea how bad it was until you started telling me the quality of players on each team.  I would have thought luck would have prevented how often it happens, but no.  Most games were heavily lop sided.

The only problem I'm having in tanks is I keep hitting E for flaps to try and turn faster. :teethhappy:

I disagree with repeated nerfs.  There has been only one patch, so that would imply one nerf.  =)

LOL Yep technically your right. They nurfed the line repeatedly before going live so new players wouldn't have any ideal just how bad they have made the line as far as performance.

Been seeing you a lot in battles flying your GA... Sorry I won't be seeing you for awhile, hopefully it will be short hiatus. I like seeing familiars in battles. I sure hope WG takes some "Hints" on this, as its beginning to become a trend among more seasoned players..

Hi, IMO WG should fix some things before making an ad campaign, the problem is not to bring new players, but to keep the existing ones. As of today, for me the game is not better nor as fun as it was in Beta, planes handled better, firing was better, everything felt more responsive than now. When game went live, the only enhancement I've noticed was the reduced hangar loading time (which was broken on previous patch), and the highlight of the 1.1 was changing the chevrons in plane specs to lines, no fixing the unusable Fortress map or at least removing it as they effectively did with Eastern Front. It's not an ad on TV what will save this game, on the same way the lack of it is not what is choking it.

 

See ya, these are not happy days, I hope they will return (good times and the good old players)

 

:honoring:

The problem is both. They need to bring in new players before the old players get bored to death of the same stuff over & over again.

If things are well done, existing players will keep, and new players will come and keep. Imagine yourself as somebody new to the game, how many time would you think you'll hold it? If new players come to play a week and then leave I don't see big success on it.

So being a new player I am not completely off the mark when I tell people that the planes in this game handle like pontoon boats?

Hey WG are you seeing this? another one.

Well Pappabear I don't think we've ever communicated but I have flown with you and against you and consider you one of the best, much respect.

I hope your hiatus won't be to long as this game needs all the good players it can get. :honoring:

LaSandren you might want to edit your post naming the game that can't be named in the forums before you get a warning from the mods.
