World of Tanks is ripping people off through theft, fixed gaming, bad customer service, horrible pricing, theft of purchases and not delivering what you purchase without taking money back from products you already bought through in game purchases and leveling and reseting games so as to force you to buy the same item over and over again even though you know you have. Additionally games are designed for newer players to be used as feeders for those in clan's and has nothing to do with skills. Games are fixed for one side, usually (green) with a win loss ratio for newer players being preset, (it doesn't matter if you played 5k battle) in this game the newer you are they draw you in, then boom, your games become fixed and you are nothing more then a feeder hoping to be put on the side that was pre destined to win befor the game is played! Tanks will all of sudden become invinceable even with 1% life left and survive numerous hits and yet when you are playing that very same tank, one shot kills will occur and they are not gold rounds!  You can play until a certain point, in my case 44% to 45% win ratio but never get beyond that. This is a team event, one person doesn't make a team, so that doesn't add up! IF ramdom games then numerous people seem to only be destined for bottom of tear, more then likely those who notice the disparity because you can not improve your game no matter how hard you try or how experience you get!

When you purchase items, you pay horrible pricing for things which make this game not only extremely costly but what your buying isn't worth the money you use to purchase said items. It's customer service is absolutely horrible, and like many other on-line games, do nothing but send message to you that you havene't responded then if you do, give or insist on coppies of an indident that has already happened and you can't do so! So in essense if you can't prove it, you get nothing back even experience or money for items that you end up buying mybe twice because you upgrade to another tank and then the previous item that you purchased already you end up buying again! I have seen this happen at least 20 times. Don't call customer service or file a report because you can't prove it and they know this!

RECOMMEND never to purchase anything but someone somewhere start penalizing games like this for in essences it is a SCAM and because of no regulation of anykind they can easily get a way with it! Game could be great but like Evony, World of tanks or aircraft abuse their customers horribly and need to be banned from internet until such things are fixend and addressed!  DON"T PLAY THE GAME< YOU GET NOTHING FOR NOTHING ITS OVER PRICED AND PERSONALLY SUCKS

Agree with complaint

AUTHOR: fkwot - (USA)

I agree with all above accept for the green red team, from what I understand the other team sees themselves as grenn and you as red. I purchased a 45 dollar tank that lived up to everything they said until the end of about 3 games. Als have experianced the same as others. If you want to get anywhere in this game you better give them full access to your credit card.

I agree with this report

AUTHOR: Three Rock - ()

As of last Friday, May 23, I never experienced a single flaw in this game, it has taken me 1 and a half years, to finally reach 10 million points. Then i realized you could build other tanks, so i did, i stated to purchase the game tanks, all you pay for is parking and amunition.  So my score went from 28% to 43%. You do get alot of abuse from Fibre op, and High speed players, because their tanks do roll faster during firefights, but i thought i was doing well on dial up.  My last game, I knocked out two players on the opposing red team,Friday morning, who were sore losers and  reported me for being a --bot--- what ever that is, and running a program...i'm 75, i can't run anywhere.  Anyway after 20 plus attempts to sign on, and a dozen tickets to customer service, i'm permently suspended.

 

I really did like the game, but it's one from Russia, now i have uninstalled it. My second point, once you reach the 40% win rate, things change. You will be contacted by players who work for this company and watch the game, if they don't like you or your country, you can 't do anything about it. Their forever interupting your play by inviting you to follow them. Its a set up, and a scam.

 

Its another Lada! ( Lets all do Acid.)...where's your wallet.

For the None company comment and useless one!

AUTHOR: Smart shopper - ()

first off, your rude and more then likely the very person I am talking about in my complaint, its great for you, but this game is suppose to be an even level, MM isnt even matching correctly, you failed to address the disparaty I mentioned and all you could do was insult, So as I said before and I stand by what I said, THIS GAME IS A RIPOFF! If you don't like my comment fix it prove me wrong, you can't! Sorry to ruin your oh so precially little scam, but a scam it is!

Additionally, if all you read is wa wa, then this web site has my address, come see me and I will wipe your a** to the floor and use you like the b***** step child you are! Im not two years old nor am I some dispondent kid that sits on his computer everyday, (as you do) and play the game while watching porn and playing with himself because that is all he is good fo, you should be familar with that! SO next time b****, mind your f***ing business, if your not the company don't f***ing say s***! If you are then fix it!

Its a game...

AUTHOR: Tyg - ()

 Its a game and ONLY a game. Get over it pricess and find something else to play. Just because YOU have a issue doesnt invalidate the fun OTHER people can and do have. Just because YOU are unhappy doesnt mean that the WHOLE GAME needs to be shut down. Its obvious by your own post that you have exageratted the situation. Which is the standard course of a butthurt consumer. You seek to make yourself look more of a victim and them more of a bad guy. Not unusual but definatly transparent. Im guessing you may have reached out to them but once you contacted them you made UNREALISTIC demands that no company could EVER do.  When THEY ask for proof of this, and you cant show ANY, you turn around and attempt to use social blackmail in order to get your demands met. Yet another transparent act. Youre NOT doing this to warn other consumers. No if you did that your post wouldnt read as if a 12 year old child has been playing the game. No youre doing this as some form of vendetta against them and Im here to tell you that no matter how hard you try, youre not going to be able to effect them in ANY WAY POSSIBLE. Its not that they are that big, its that you are JUST one person. Its understandable to be upset, but most of your post just reads "waa waa I didnt get my way". THEY could nt do what you wanted, thats all. Try keeping your demands to a range that they CAN assist you. It just looks like you are spouting ANYTHING you can to make them look bad and its backfiring on you. So be a bit more realistic and try and have some patience. Your entire issue may take time to fix. Try giving them that time.

Or just find some other mind numbing no skill shoot em up to play. I suggest Left4Dead II.
