Thanks to TollhouseFrank for allowing me to repost this.
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend as I sure did. We once again return to the miniseries where you do some reading, I do not offer you a TL;DR, and people reminisce about how much better World of Tanks used to be, because every single patch that WG has ever brought out has been the death-knell for the game, and it will never recover and people will abandon the game in larger and larger droves.
Though to be honest, if patch 9.0 couldn’t kill the game (and trust me, it seriously tried), then all the others will not kill the game. Just look past the hysterics and the fear-mongers and hate-mongers and realize that the average person just loves the game and just wants to play and make something go BOOM.
Sorry for being so long-winded. Where was I? Oh yes, this time, I will go over the year 2015 and why it was the downfall of WoT and why nobody plays this game at all anymore. Ever. The numbers in the queue are Alternate Facts and made up.
Patch 9.6 We start off 2015 with the first patch in February. Artillery Strike and Airstrike are introduced to Strongholds. Reddit Main posts videos of them being used to hilarious results on Mines.
This patch was a nerf to the Accuracy/Sigma change that made tanks super-accurate. The amount of shells going towards the center of the aiming circle was way too high, so WG nerfed this a bit so that fewer shells flew directly at the center.
