    So, after 11 years I'm struggling to find any reasons to keep going.
    Cost to participate is going up with every "update"
    Cost to advance is the same - More time required, more cost involved.
    Less people to interact with - my clan (was ranked 7 on the server) has disolved because everyone got tired of battling the advantages of bots and trains.
    I have way too many players in my contacts and sadly these days there are rarely more than 2 or 3 of them online.

    In the last 2 weeks RP for Basic Colonel has gone up by 3 million.
    2 weeks ago I needed 150k RP to get basic colonel back (again) then over night I need 3 million RP.

    While shooting bots is easy kills, it's actually worse than shooting strueners - After about 10 minutes it's just mind numbing and boring.

    Due to the current meta (trains), if you aren't in one of the top clans that hold all the bases (7 of the top 10 clans are run by the same small group of players), there is no point even trying.

    I enjoyed the challenge of getting rank but now that has gone, I simply can't compete with the trains and bots

    Events are dominated by trains and bots or the cost to compete (Astral) is prohibitive so that's out.

    I can't remeber the last time I managed to kill a mindfire but watch the trains kill them all day.
    Last night I thought I'd go do some Invokes - 18 ships (no real players) all shooting the same Invoke, so that was a bust.

    Everytime I login it seems there is less content to engage in - which adds up to less reason to login.

  3. Here is one example of game company controlling use of "mods"

    Penalized, Warned, & Banned Accounts
    Today, we have taken another step in this direction and placed a massive ban wave across all servers. In this wave, we’ve penalized 2,920 accounts in the EU region: 2,070 of these accounts have received their first warning, and 850 have been banned permanently.

    The Spirit of Fair Play
    World of Tanks has always been open to modifications and customizations, as long as they align with our Fair Play Policy. However, we do not approve of unwanted, cheating, and harmful software that manipulates gameplay and provides unfair advantages. We will do our best to keep the gaming environment as fair as possible.

  4. They can't very well ban bots on DarkOrbit now, they took to long, too many have switched to bots to keep up, its the only way for anyone to play, especially new players. What needs to be done is all players botting before Blacklight need to be heavily punished, the use of bots needs to be blocked, with unity and anti cheat, the ability to detect them will rise, and the ability for them to run will drop. All these train users need to be drastically punished, and personally, a nice Clown Emoji on them for the rest of their lives would be great.

    Those I know who use trains would see that as a badge of honor.
    They aleady boast in Discord about how DO won't ban them and they rule the server - Giving them a DO approved badge would only make them worse (if that's at all possible)

    Only way to deal with trains if they can't/won't be banned - 50% reduction of everything, EP, Honor, Credits, URI, Boosts, Upgrades AND (most importantly) Damage.
    Same for bots.. You can bot all you like BUT do it knowing you'll only get 75% rewards (URI, Credits, Honor, EP) across the board for anything you kill.

    I agree they did take far too long and people basically need to bot to keep up but that also says something about the state of the game. No use banning botters when playing fairly is far too time consuming.

    I feel like that would be a far too weak penalty. Bots have gained a huge advantage over regular players and penalizing them for the future will not take away what they have gained in the past. Personally I doubt DarkOrbit can't detect bots. I feel like they allow them because they make them money (rebate, premium, etc.).

    Well I must thank the CM's on US server - You helped greatly in my decision to Uninstall the game of cheats - BotOrbit.

    Premium and Rebate stopped on 3 accounts/servers. Payment methods Removed.

    I'm done - BotOrbit is down 1 more real player - Let the trains and 25/7 botters have it.

  9. It is because of sanctions against your country. Russia has been removed from SWIFT system in last march.
