It was a nice run, but I am going to stop playing WT (after all these years)

^Dat. = )

Glad to hear it ,would have been a shame in some ways. Not him having to endure the latest map changes though I doubt.

So was he wrong in everything he said?

That’s not for me to confirm or deny. I only have my personal experiences, and those don’t necessarily agree with his experiences, no. But then it IS an old thread and things have changed, as they always do…

Yes indeed, quite a few more have left since then.

I think the warbond grind etc… hook people in. The result is if people want the il8 (latest) which is just another Stormovik clone (there are many variations of this admittedly legendary aircraft in the game already) then players feel obliged to log in every day for fear of being left behind or something.

Okay, Gaijin say you don’t have to do it if you don’t want to, but it’s like a drug. Maybe go a bit easier on us Gaijin, or we will all feel like the OP!

Got account since idk 2011 or so.
Back then grind on planes was kinda ok. Unlock few planes buy ones that you’re interested in playing, skip most that are literally nothing different than previous model but a name. And game was fun.
Now?
You unlock something you have to buy it otherwise you can’t buy next vehicle after it.
Tons of stuff is literally same thing different name like 3x Leopard 1, Bf 109 fw and such.
So you basically have to grind through same vehicle 2-3 times sometimes.
It’s horrible.
Balancing is a joke.
They call it realistic battles but you face tanks from 1950+ while youre in a tank from 1942-44. Yea TOTALLY REALISTIC.
It would be realistic if you had simply tank timeline service match up instead of fake BR nonsense.
I play with Tiger 2 and get obliterated by swedish 5-6 sec reloading artilery shooting 155mm HE rounds Bandkanon 1C.
That thing was used in 1967.
Yea REALLISTYIC as hell
Me in 1943-44 tank against 1967 one. TOTALLY REALISTIC.
Plus idk what does that thing do in this game as its not a tank or tank destroyer but simple ARTY.
Now I get started on maps.
What is the point of making them, if your mm keeps giving me same maps all the time.
I keep seeing same 6-7 maps all day long.
All maps are made in a way to play front face with best armored tanks on front to stand a chance.
Playing with light tanks or anything to scout is pointless as maps are 2km bit MAX.
Back in the day you could snipe nicely most of the time and enjoy that 1-2km hits.
Ships?
OH my God, ships are totally horrible, waste of time…
Another interesting thing is that fake player count game shows me there are 100-200k players online, some ongoing amount of battles.
But simple calculation shows that amount of ongoing battles is not even close to how many should be there.
Not to mention I have to often wait to find some players on planes or ships.

Guess it about the time I join the club too.

Now you will enjoy life like if you were an old drug addict that succeed to flee its toxic addiction. This Warthunder shit is toxic.
