I've spent a lot of time playing WoT since closed beta - it's a great game, but the devs really need some proper competition. AD could be a nice alternative, especially as WT:GF seems to be a bit too hardcore for my liking.
Assuming he/she stopped playing before they reduced the tier spread, then it wasn't impossible at that time. It currently is now, and he/she is just out of the loop and hasn't played the game for over a year. Or like you said, playing a scout tank or failplatoon.
I concur, WoT needs some competition, all they've done is say "hey here's more for you to waste your life on by endlessly grinding.". They're taking too long to pump out content that refreshes and revitalizes the game, the last exciting update was physics, which it's been almost a year since they've added it. I got bored of the game, plain and simple, it had a ton of potential but they haven't been given a reason to try and make it better.
