Once again War gaming has decided to do a survey about forum experience.

There is always a link and the thread is locked to avoid hearing peoples experience.

 

So here I am opening an off topic discussion so people can voice their opinions about the forums.

 

Lets be frank and to the point lets see if our voices get heard in more ways than a survey.

or will this thread itself get locked due to 

the wise words of

Col. Nathan R. Jessup "You can't handle the truth!*

What is my experience with the forums ?

 My experience is low to average.

I enjoy the video's that people post and some of the discussions about suggestions on improving this game.

Although many suggestions are not well thought out they are still somewhat good.

 

I am disappointed by the lack of interaction between the WG staff and posters.

We seem to be left alone like some teenagers that have been trusted to carry on by themselves while the parents run off on vacation.

 

I remember a time in my teens and my parents were gone every weekend leaving the house to me.

Every weekend alone what is a 16 year Lifeguard going to do......PARTY.

Spending Sundays cleaning the house and getting things back in order.

 

I could almost think that WG staff never visits the forums if it was not for the SPAM post being removed.

With the occasional Sasquatch sightings from GhostPrime

 

Even with the most mundane of posts I would think there would be some sort of staff acknowledgement.

As it stands now any post must be so unique and above normal to garner a response.

 

Like wise I feel the Moderation is far more unbalanced then the Match Maker.

Perhaps the rules are unclear even to them and it becomes more of a personal thing than judgement with in the rules.

I do not say this due to one of my videos being Moderated for language despite the parental warning.

I deserved that one...really I did.

But I see many people being moderated while the same style of post from another goes unchecked.

 

As for the forums as a whole....it is just a way to pass the time with no real substance or discussion.

+1, lost.  My survey responses echo your observations very closely.  The interaction from WG to account holders would be grounds for neglect and abandonment, using your parent/teen analogy.

This is good feedback. I appreciate honesty. In very recent weeks I have been trying to come back on here and make a presence on here. I will be continuing to do so. I am over on the WoT forums as well, I know a few of you who have seen me over there. 

 

Please keep the suggestions, and feedback coming.

Great, we understand you have problems playing the game and a good place to start would be to make a thread or send a ticket to support.

What about your Forum experience ? can you tell us about it.

Mods are pretty predictable. You can tell when something is going to be deleted. 

Whether they are fair or not is a different question.

I think they are OK, but I understand if people feel differently. 

 

As for the people writing in the forum, it's neither good nor bad by web standard. 

The only thing that really stands out is some people complaining about the state of the game (not players) without any suggestions or solutions. 

What's the point of venting on the internet? If they are expecting sympathy from others, real life is probably a better choice.

Proof that Sasquatch is real.

 

And, generally, I think Lost is on to something. The population is so low that there isn't the toxic level of one-up-manship that pervades the Tanks forum. Posting on there is usually looking to be trolled, even the most mundane posts turn ugly fairly quickly. Here, the responses are few, usually helpful or at least entertaining, a few exceptions must be noted, but he has quit the game a few times....  But even then, it would be nice to know that what we are posting is being read, if not acted upon, by wargaming.

 

I recently had an issue playing planes, I closed the ticket after six weeks. the ticket response times were running about 6 days. The tank ticket I had open was significantly faster, leading me to believe that their staff is much more dedicated to the moneymaker, which makes sense, but if they have written off planes it would be nice to know it is dead. Similarly, one of the things that I had to do for my tickets was ping wargaming servers. I am left with the assumption that planes is running on a tanks server, or maybe a hand-me-down server in a backroom somewhere.

  1.  this is merely a question, you have no battles, so how would you have an issue playing planes? just a thought
  2. as far as trolling, there are many people who assume to much or are on their toes and take every comment that even could have a hint of disrespect as trolling. For me in particular, i generally just try to be honest even if someone doesn't like it.
  3. I never criticize for the sake of it. i believe in CONSTRUCTIVE criticizim which is suppose to be respectful and helpful simultaneously

 first off ever think even remotely it could be fix your PC or the programs in it ,but here the subject matter was forum experience and in case you had not noticed hijacking a post (changing the subject matter) is a no no  look it up its in the rules. 

 

 

 by in large everything Lost has posted times 10 in my book

and this back and forth from WoT to us they have a basically ok forum its ours that needs help or needs shot or  rebuilt 

 

New player get badgered in the game then come here and get so so or no replies from staff and have to depend almost wholly on other players to reply . No wonder many move on to other games

because they wanted feedback on bringing it back.

 

And lost, you pretty much mirrored some of what I said in my wall like responses where I could put them.

 

I'd like to see more of a presence from WG and not just people like GhostPrime and KMaus but maybe some more dev interaction so we we know were not just the server equivalent of some empty wasteland in Siberia for isolation. It often feels like WG has abandoned this game, and this server, and that is what irks me the most among the other problems. That more than anything actually kills my desire to play the game.
