Some unfortunate news I am afraid.

That's just great......Thanks for all you guys did, now go away.  I feel so much better knowing it was a hard choice for the to make, but not hard enough to refund money we put into the game or time... They could have worked on making a mobile game, but its just easier to screw us over. Another in the growing list of WG failures, and the people they hurt are just their customers and they don't really care.

Wot Generals is the least advertised game, in all of my time I have only gotten one email about the game and other wise would never have heard of it... not having a big player base is the cause of stopped production but tying wot missions or specials to this game would greatly increase players who try this game out

Can you pass along message to WG, you can have best game in world and it doesn't matter if players can't PLAY it. Get enough players into game before you try to micro balance them. Put bots or w/e in game so we can keep playing. Best game in world would have shut down with this much mm waiting.

They never advertised it, it was always like an after thought. You see all kinds of free games advertised,  but I have NEVER seen any kind of ad for this. This game screams for mobile play, but instead they stick with that P O S mobile game they have. So many things could have been done to turn this game around, if any one at WG cared, but they are to busy with WoT2 and other game to give this one any attention. I will play some of their games, I will never again spend any money on any WG product and every night before my head hits the pillow I will ask the good lord above to close the doors on WG forever. Have a nice day.

Sly, how COULD YOU?

 

Wargaming, I do respect your decision, but I really do not want this to turn into a *koff koff World of Warplanes koff koff*.

I don't know, maybe you could still update the game, but don't make it your priority. Whenever you guys have time, do it, and if not, we will wait (no worry, we are used to long waiting times).

Oh well, *plays last post*.

I would like to see what your next plans are, as I am an enthusiastic supporter of Wargaming.

 

See you guys on the batt-

Oh yeah, I forgot, longer waiting times.

I am very sad. Can I take over the social media for it and plug it everywhere.

I would have played more if it was available for Android. I kinda think global matchmaking might be able to save this game....

WG invests years of development into a game, then invests 0 into marketing said game, then abandons ship 6 months after release and wonders why people didnt play. theres a difference between a title failing because its awful, like WoWP, and a title failing because no one knows about it, because you didnt tell anyone it exists, like with WoTG.

Literally if they just posted a few advertisements around the other game forums, they could have probably tripled the playerbase in a matter of weeks...

this. and at most tiers the playerbase was already almost at good levels. the game would have really gained momentum exponentially

I hope wargaming will at least allow us to move our unspent gold to tanks or ships.

Very very sad new's. As much as I hate to say it this game in 6 months or less will be withered away and dead with a couple people still trying to play. The game starts to die now.... :(

I agree a 100% with votato. The 0 amount of ads for WotG was just crazy. I've been here since alpha like most people who replied to this topic, let me tell you my experience with WoTG as a "farewell gift" to WG, maybe they will learn something, who knows:

 

I was pretty excited when I heard about Generals. Then I got an email that WoTG is recruiting peeps for Alpha and then Closed Beta. Great! I joined in, started playing, enjoyed the game even though it was a bit weird at first. Then a while later they announced that Closed Beta is over, you'll get a reward but not until it comes live. I'm like, ooookaaaay, sounds fishy but whatever. Then the NA server was closed for months and months and months, while EU/RU Open Beta'd... 'lolwut'?

I kept checking back and made sure that I was signed up for any news regarding the game (nobody sent me anything, by the way. No 'hey, we are still alive, testing is limited to this area, here are the patch notes just in case you were wondering', nothing). One day, the game was magically back up! lolwut 2!!! No emails, no announcements, nothing, it was just there. Now, months later it's closing time.

 

Protip #72: if you want a game to succeed, you should try advertising it. But you should know this since all the other WG games are plastered all over my google search results and my facebook wall.

 

Great game with immense potential (the last patch was wicked good), and ignored by the marketing department. Not cool, peeps.

This is where I say goodbye. Game will slowly die so I will not spend my time and money on this game anymore. Anyone I played, thank you for sharing your time and gaming with me! Back to blitz full time for me! o7 and good luck all! I have played my last generals match.
