I used to love this game. I used to tell buddies about this game to come try it, hell, I even almost got my girlfriend to play with me not too long ago. I was actually really excited about this game's future.
But this last update I just cannot recommend the game anymore.
Before this last patch I used to put up with the moon gravity, the subpar optimization, and the borderline 'P2w' concept, because I liked the devs and I paid a little to support them here and there.
But with the latest 'T' build, they nerfed the ♥♥♥♥ out of XP ribbons and grinding for something like the next tier of tanks is almost impossible... Unless you pull out the credit card.
Want that Easy Eight? $10, or dedicate hundreds of hours to get it. To get ONE tank out of all the career choices, all the tanks, and ALL of the factions you might want to play.
Want that fancy Pershing? Or Tiger? Or IS-2? $20 bucks or grind even MORE!
This just isn't a good business model, I understand F2P games need support and funding to keep going, and I was doing just that before the change. But to change your business scheme after you've racked up a decent playerbase is pretty lame in my eyes. Not to mention that these guys hardly even mention anything in the patchnotes about the ribbon nerfs... They just nonchalantly tell us to ♥♥♥♥ off and if we don't like it, well tough sh*t.
I was as loyal as they get to Reto and the game, check my hours. But I'm done until fixes are made, and I'm sure as hell not supporting actions like that.
