    Worldwide Global Server?

    theres a good topic on the world of tanks forum calling for a global server... especially with diminishing playerbase just an opinion for positive constructive discussion: isn't it about time to join the big leagues like other mmo's??? if other mmo's can, why cannot wg? re latency, lag and ping: other mmo's manage this with np steam manages this for decades already wg can always give the option to join a multi-regional server, while also keep the options for regional servers .. so the players can choose. wg have been advertising this since they commenced.... it should be easy; segregating regions and player populations is foolish , unfair, and self defeating for game growth and sustainability ... its ridiculous that we cannot play with friends worldwide, unless you dl different regional clients for each this is so out moded and impractical ? all players eg from Africa who do not have a server at all would support this. people who move and travel a lot for work or study etc. would support this players with friends around the world would support this. all my recruits and most friends that have tried wg have quit because it excludes some... we play mmo's on steam, no matter where, or what time zone... and the latency is actial'ly even better than the segregated wg regional server. wg its a globalized twentyfirst century world already other sustainable MMOs have used global servers or eg. the steam platform for years already the competition, wt, uses a cross platform server too ...) the naval battles across regions shows how easy this could be if other MMOs can, surely wg can manage it seemed it would be so easy to have one client and one portfolio , and then choose the global server but keep a regional server option

    175k coal... legendary commanders, a poll

    IMHO for casual players.. and new players: is it logical you can grind two commanders in campaigns, but not the others? is it fair to ALL players that you can only get the : opportunity to grind the other two IF you can do an event: what if players cannot participate in a once-off ;event; because of work or whatever - is it fair that casual and new players miss out ? walling them behind once off events is very short sighted by wg. it makes it kinda unfair for new and casual players. Now casual and new players have to try compete with the others who have the leg. captains.. do wg realise: this makes people stop or avoid those factions where the leg capt is unobtainable (in past event, or because overpriced) eg. USSR or frg - deutsch factions altogether, and go for factions where you can get a leg capt for free... have stopped playing USSR and doesn't seem even an event to get the german leg capt at all??? this is actually a kind of discrimination against that faction, isn't it? most casual and new players would prob. prefer to get a (non USSR, FRG) ship for coal than the extortionate cost of the walled leg. capt's. using a REASONABLE amount of free XP or else doubloons would be better. else campaigns or even collections are actually fun and always available. make getting leg. capt,s FAIR for all ; keep all factions equal.... ???

  6. Yep Wows so stubbornly obsessed with grinding And with biases to unicums, instead of incentives attracting new players to grow the playerbase., or casual players to be a bit competitive against the best players with their boosts. Do they want no new players, no new recruits, and no part time or casual players? Possibly.. If as the RB/NTC, or PR geared for the minority of unicums and whales, they want this to no longer b a free2play mp MMO? (The RB/NTC was supposed to give free premium consumables to all.. conveniently forgotten credit sink fallacies or selling "free" (!!!) Xp , demolishing the playerbase with more erosion. Cv re-rework , some contributors actually expressed that they hoped RTS cv mains would just leave.. cv was gonna be dumbed-down to low skill level arcade playstle, to make it "more accessible".. cvs were never broken, but graf zeppelin-gate (premature sale of a non functional premium vehicle ) gave a convenient excuse to rework the class , so they could bring wowp in, effectively removing cvs as warships, since the "year (and counting) of the cv" so they converted cv warships over to planes (?!?).. doubtless salvaged from their costly implosion of WoWp; and the ship is a bot ai that cannot even autopilot. The logic and marketing confusing.. the bizarrely obvious and blatant disregard and disrespect with this rude offensive insulting attitude to the community and playerbase.. must/ can only be deliberate. is all this to reduce the PC playerbase, except the whales , so they can try to match the competition , on other platforms? With especially so many alpha and beta testing 'veterans' quitting, how sustainable can the title remain on PC, and why do they insist on sabotaging their own title? I guess wows with just unicums could be e-sport on PC, and they can then grow it on console and mobile? Possibly planing to merge wowp more into wows ? But to become a real MMO they need to stop segregation of regions, to catch up and go global like other MMOs, eg on steam type platform. Just trying to understand whats really going on with their business model and (apparently counter productive ) decision making. (It's now opposite of what WoT has been doing, apparently positively, to rescue and salvage itself.. eg reducing grindiness (!) drastically, making crew training much easier to catch up, reducing many Pay2win options, levelling the matchmaking - levelling the playing field). Wows going to more grindiness, and strong unicums and rich minority , more gambling, more rng, more reworks fixing stuff that ain't broken.. which nearly sank wot and did sink wowp. Whatever s going on in the background which we can only speculate on, not sure purchasing anything in wows would keep it's virtual value. Like the alpha and beta testers quitting, not sure how welcome we are .. the title is not being changed around for oriented to the present community. Also communication seems to be only one other fora, eg Reddit, not their own fora... And are contributors banned from comments in this forum in their 'nda's'

    Make the correct choice this Christmas.

    Laughter is the best medicine.. Since the Puerto rico- gate heist is 'no laughing matter, but also a 'laughable '' disappointing deception, humour is good alternative to the grind! so, since whale hunting is banned by international law.. wows , you may not hunt whales Besides, Russia is a oil producer anyway! but if whales can afford the Puerto Rico, is WoWs considering a whaling ship class? And a Greenpeace sea Shepherd faction? We should have a Moby [edited] campaign!?! A Hemingway captain? , the old man and his fish Anyway, yeah, $300 can get you a real week safari in (South) Africa, including whale watching!

    Even CCs complain about Puerto Rico grind

    QBs "shame on you"
  13. 'tis the time to show some love for each other, and please remember those less fortunate than yourself the poor, the hungry, the ill, the refugees, and all those in need.. Also there's the planet, the environment, nature and the wildlife c past the commercialization and consumerism, materialism and monetization. remember what Christmas is really about do something good and selfless for somebody deserving and in need.. every day. ggg - generosity giving and goodness "The world could use more love... People don't need to be so mean to each other.. there could be a lot more love in this world" (Elon Musk, South African entrepreneur, pioneer, etc. and gamer) https://g.co/kgs/V5mfLb

    The Puerto Rico Dumpster Fire...

    How much how does wows have? If they keep torping themselves, like their re-rework unbalanced cv's? Why is wows so stubbornly obsessed to make wows much more grindy, and more expensively Pay2win? eg ntc/RB and 'not'-free ship grinds They sank their expensive wowp re-work overnight. Wows must now be among the most expensive, and profitable Pay2win (not really-free to play ) MMOs now? Btw call Greenpeace . Hunting whales is illegal in international law.
