I can’t be more agree with your video Osirish, I feel exactly the same.
These last months, I’ve thrown quite a bunch of money (my money, with my credit card) on WoT, and bought a lot of premium tanks I wanted for a long time. And now, I feel cheated by WG, because all maps become a “counter strike on tracks” and I don’t want to play this sort of games.
As I said in a previous comment, that’s why I’m playing more on WoWs now, than WoT, because there is more tactical decision, and less lightining fast reflexes needed in order to perform well (this, and you get equivalent rewards, whatever you’re on the winning or loosing team, depending of your personnal performance in the battle, which is far less frustrating). But it’s sad I’m bound to play WoWs to find back the gameplay I liked in WoT !
Now, I won’t throw money anymore on WoT (and I won’t spend my remaining gold either), until they drastically change their line of development : I’m just waiting the link between doublons / gold and then will spend my gold stock on WoWs.
isn’t Mines also a low tier map as well? or is it only available from tier 2?
Honestly dont know what WG are doing to low tier games….. they remove this map because of puppy kickers when they have put a tank like the pz ii J up for sale….. which is clearly OP,broken and is a seal clubbers dream tank. Just seems very hypocritical to me even though you could pupy kick on every other map in the game
7 mins in and still waiting for the game to start. 🙂 This is not a criticism, it amused me on your map *RANT* (discussion) 😛
And your correct the S does stand for SOMUA, thus it is the Somua Somua 35 according to my mighty google fu.
I did not like Provence. But I like Mittengard even less. I don’t know why most good maps are taken out of the game. Also I don’t know why the deforestation on the maps keeps on going. It has become a game of reflexes instead of tactics. Wargaming announced this a long time ago by stating that the WOT game should get “faster”. Well here you have it and I don’t like the “faster” (but dumber) game. The game is now more suited to idiots.
The Province map was one reason I took to the game so well, I enjoyed the tactical nature of the map. If I was to join WOT now and find myself playing Mittengard more than a couple of times then I would have moved on and found another game to play. Mittengard is a horrible map with dreadful gameplay that does virtually nothing to improve a players skills. It goes hand in glove with some recent changes to maps that they have carried out lately in that they have been badly done and it has been detrimental to the game as a whole. WOT have really lost their way and need to get back on track if they are not to haemorrhage players from the game and deter new players.
It may be a touch of deja vu the same thing happened with WORLD OF WARPLANES and they dropped it like a hot brick after totally ruining it as a competent game
I agree with everything you said. I’ve got a poll going in the forums to re-instate removed maps. I refuse to play Mittengard every time it comes up I exit to garage I don’t earn credits so they cant take the punishment by having awards and credits taken away from me .Storm quoted on Rita’s status report that Province was removed and I quote” because it’s shit and Dragons Ridge was removed because heavy tanks tool to long to reach the top” .What’s the use in playing on a game run by dictators?
osirish what is a pedobear? is that just a pedophile and WG seriously said that pedophiles play low tiers to interact with kids? never heard the term before today?
I have encountered several players who claimed that they worked for WG, and the things that impressed me about them? First, they were horrible players. Second, they were obnoxious and insulting to players. Third, they like to threaten players with banning them. Those people just aren’t bright. Are they really WG employees? Can’t tell, but if they are, it explains their complete lack of understanding of armored warfare, and their grotesque blunders.
Wargaming continuously are dumbing down the game. And if they try to use fiscal reasons to try and justify that type of business philosophy, just take a look at Blizzzard and the last 3 expansions they’ve had. Blizzard tried making World of Warcraft as easy as possible and they lost HALF of their subscriber base because of it.
Subbed just because of your rant. Loved Province :,(
this map is awesome, new players and old players love it, i dunno whats goin on with wargaming
If they they gave everyone free Sixth Sense perk (to 100% skilled radioman, as promised year ago) there would be no problems with Province map.
“Let’s create a new Game mode – like 15 vs 15… but where 14 players of each team have to wait until player 1 of team 1 and player 1 of team 2 have finished their 1:1 battle… The wining player gets a point for their team and then the next 1:1 fight starts.. until one of the teams won the majority of the 1:1 battles. So it might happen, that some players don’t need to fight anything at all…
Great Idea, hey?”
“hmm – let’s remove some usefull maps 1st and see if we can use that 1:1 idea in a later patch…”
I agree that the tutorial is absolute garbage. It only teaches you to drive up to a tank and shoot at it. As if that isn’t the point of the whole game! It took me 1500 games and vids by Jingles to learn about decapping, angleling and sidescraping! Perhaps Russians learn about this game in school so they don’t need the tutorial…
Mittengard map sucks!! Thank you for your rant, you are 100 % right. WG may be going to turn the game into a Pv E Game (LOL). WG don’t care about it’s player base and they feel that players are to unfair to them by there comments.
May I rant alongside of you irish as I agree totally with all that you say. As a 70 year old I also feel that WG have lost their marbles.
All of the premium American lights that I have are low tier. Don’t want to be down there, but need the crews trained. Wargaming has been making one big mistake after another for awhile now.
I don’t think they ever mentioned this when they removed the map, but I believe Province actually had a fairly large win-rate disparity. Something like 10-15 percent, which is fairly substantial. I’m not sure if it played a lot better over there on the EU servers, but on the NA servers and my experiences, that map has given me the most draws and 13 minute long camp-fests of any other map. I enjoyed playing the map, but for some reason I still disliked it, most likely because it took nearly 3 times as long to play out due to the overly cautious nature of all of the teams. I’m really not sure how I feel about it being removed anymore. Probably disappointed though, because that means I have to play Mittengard more.
I didn’t like province. I found it very boring. Camping on the ridges waiting for the enemy to slip up for upwards of 15 minutes often ending in a draw is not my idea of a fun videogame experience. I’ll just play classic duck hunt if I want that kind of sit there and wait to shoot gameplay.
I agree the most you say.
Well I do think that WG has a point. playing this map with cammo/binos/paint you have way more change to win. new players don’t use cammo net, paint and binos. so yes……..
Provence was so much boring to play ….
I agree with O. that Province is the far better map to learn the game. And new players should have a tutorial that teach about spotting and hiding.
The Wot Forums drones have complained about Province ever since I joined and now they have their wish. I hope WoT is also happy because I am not. Get rid of the bowl map, Mittengard.
Mebay you could find some way to get it…
I wish they would put in dragon ridge…
Gandalf:End?No,the journey doesen’t end here…
I’m with you, but province, if it was 5 v 5 it would draw every time
Thanks for another Province video Osirish. So more pieces of the puzzle are falling in place, wargaming staff have no manners: pedobears I’m offended even thou I only have just over 2000 games under my belt.
P.S. If you got anymore of Province replays please consider putting them on your channel.
P.P.S. When I started to play the game I don’t think that match making for new players was in place ( February 2015 please correct me if I’m wrong ) and I survived ok. I just had no expectations of winning for the first 100 games. By the 20 or 30 games I was making some progress and in no small measure thanks to this very map of Province that thought me to stay put and use camouflage and cover, and then wait for the right moment to attack. All important tactical lessons.
On mittengard I got 10 kills in the panzer 2, so yeah
If the Province abstinence gets too strong I guess you could always arrange a training room match with your viewers 🙂 I really hope this map gets put back in 9.11 though.
That is exactly right. The only way to limit puppy kicking is to add player skill to the matchmaker. This will have noobs play against other noobs, puppy kickers will play against other puppy kickers (which they will get tired of quite quickly), bots will play against other bots and so on. Imagine a game with 30 bots with 20 WN8 each “playing” against each other, i.e. both teams idling in the base for 15 minutes.
Problem solved, botting will be useless, puppy kicking will be useless. teams will be evenly matched and everyone will have fun because they either get a chance to do something. Games ending in 15-3 will be a freak occurrence rather than every other match.
i would imagine it must be horrendous being thrown into mittengard in your first battle. i’ve probably had dozens of battles on that map in my time and i still cringe when i get it. there is no time to settle in and see what is going on. I’d say it is easier to take advantage of new players of mittengard because they are like rabbits in headlights
@viridis lux. rant didnt end at 6:40 it went on 23minutes pretty much
They must have been drunk out of their minds when they made the decision to remove Province while leaving Mittengard. Or maybe there was an error in the communication, they meant to do it the other way but someone misread the email.
i allways start with a tier 2 battel then 4,6,8 and 10 then mowe back down and play a tier 1 then 3,5,7,9 i like to play all my tanks in all tiers, why is that bad? i love that ther is no bunny jumping in this game, that you can use the terrain, that one needs to think about mowement and placement, i dont understand why wg more and more twerks the game in favor for the heavy tanks, nerfing the the camo on the TDs nerfing the guns one the mediums, close in maps like mittengard, i am 39 and most that i play with are my age and above and i dont minde using a littet monny for somthing like painting or resetting skills or a some days of premium time but some day, when you can only drive russien heavys in close in figthing, i may not find it amusing anny mor and the i will drop WOT for another game, well i like your videos, thank you for sharring them with us all ;-)
Mittengard is actually pretty good, I had some of my best games in it. Province is a really good map too, there is not a SINGLE explanation for removing Province.
Also, I don’t mean to be insulting, but could you put a time stamp for when the replay starts please?
6:40 rant ends. also, i agree with the rant.
Oh god when Province was playable with tier 10s 😀 so horrible map.
are u going to stream soon?
