    4. I'm happy about the separate stats for randoms. If only there was one for platoon v. solo!

  2. Well I'm quite glad that they may introduce second arty branches, the US have so many of them that it's actually a shame to have only one branch. Also, they said that the Soviets could get the second one so... I'm looking forward to it^^

  3. Lazy, or maybe WG devs are just stupid

  4. OK, arty-party is a problem? No worries we'll fix that introducing Tier 10 arty's and filling the tech tree with another ones and icing on the cake we'll introduce secondary arty line too.
    Just great.

    And also me a little sad that I'm not rewarded for those
    - no plans for extra rewards for players with a lot of battles played
    - also, no special rewards for extremely good players are planned

    And in the end player base is monkey-style? We don't care because we don't have in plan to improve player skills.

      Like invit code with pz38h.
      Old player will have nothing for jave played from 2 years.

    2. And more funny is fact that you have to do nothing to get some new year tanks like Tetrach and T1E6.

      Bring that WT Army faster I have enough of that arrogants.

    3. Here,take a patato, since you are a good player with lots of battles played.

      Are you feeling better now?Glad I could help you.

    4. People always complaining about arty...have any of you thought that maybe it's not arty to blame but the morons that keep being nuked by arty not knowing to take cover?

      I am an arty player myself and I can tell that one in 10 games I find a heavy player that actually knows how to take cover.....so go have more battles and improve your skills...bitching and complaining will not make you feel better..

      I can gift you another patato, just to make you feel good.

      Have a nice day!

    7. "People always complaining about arty...have any of you thought that maybe it's not arty to blame but the morons that keep being nuked by arty not knowing to take cover?"

      Nope.

      "I am an arty player myself and I can tell that one in 10 games I find a heavy player that actually knows how to take cover.....so go have more battles and improve your skills...bitching and complaining will not make you feel better.."

      Tanks must advance, you know and avaiable covers are not sufficient for everybody, try find me a cover for everybody on kampinowka. WG didnt change some obstacles to give less cover from arty (like on El Haluf) for nothing.
      Powerful arty change game into campfest and scouts didnt change situation at all (so basically these two concepts are broken).

      Delete
    8. Agree. On one hand we are told that arty brings movement in games, on the other they are bitching about "noob, you don't know how to use cover". And in most cases its impossible to be 100% arty save.

      Btw, while trying to do so, the tankers have to fight a batlle and not drinking coffee with one hand lazy on the mouse.

      Delete
    9. WG is a business ==> A business needs to attract as wide a player base as possible ==> That includes those with IQ less than their bra size ===> Arty must exist as the least challenging gameplay in any MMO ever ==> WoT gets 98.759% of all the retards in MMOs (the remaining 1.241% are unable to master the login process).

      Delete
    10. I still wonder why people are thinking that stretching arty lines to tier 10 will bring more arty to games. As the devs said, it will make them more evenly distributed through tiers, so the situation should get better not worse -.-'

      Delete
    11. Cause it will more arty on lower tiers - now whole arty is grouped in T10 (and T4) battles, after change we will have arties on each tier - so i.e. Grille which is sometimes fairly putted in T7-T8 battles now will rule T5 battles exclusively.

      Delete
    12. "I still wonder why people are thinking that stretching arty lines to tier 10 will bring more arty to games. As the devs said, it will make them more evenly distributed through tiers, so the situation should get better not worse -.-'"

      The devs say a lot of things the vast majority of which is bollocks, just prepare to see a lot more arty in all tiers rather then just T8-10, especially since they will be removing cap at somepoint.

      Delete
    13. "Btw, while trying to do so, the tankers have to fight a batlle and not drinking coffee with one hand lazy on the mouse."

      If you think that playing arty is so easy(one hand lazy), why don't you play arty and see how easy it is.

  5. The main issue I have isn't Skill based match making, but skill BALANCED match making.

    I don't mind playing with idiots, but I mind when my team is only made of idiots and the other team are unicum.

    1. Totally agree.
      During the last couple of months, 6/10 games are easy win or we get roflstomped the first 4 minutes....

      Where are the balanced battles that took place 1-2 years ago?

      Sad eyes:(

      Delete
    2. I could not agree more. Kudos.

      Delete
    3. Yes, i asked myself the same question many times.

      They just have to calculate with WN 6 or 7, and include if the player will be toptier or not into the calculation.

    4. Per tank WR is sufficient as long as there is enough battles in the tank. EFF and WN have significant multicollinearity problems.

      Delete
    5. Yeah I totally agree.

      Because now as a good player you can get a good player to your team or to the opposing team and that sucks.

      I want the good player to always be on the opposing team. That will be so awesome and fair!

      Delete
    6. Skill balanced mm would feel good the first few months, but always having the same challenge for every player would even out the global winrate, until everyone is back at 50%.

      Delete
  6. - statistics for company/CW's and randoms will be made separate (unclear as to how exactly will this deal with past stats)

    Does this mean that the devs aren't sure if they can dig up the info from older data or are they just not telling?

      Gun looking up around a corner / wall...anyone remembers that bug since beta???? bug being fixed around 2-3 patches ago......

    3. And still happening,even today....

    1. Imagine 5 arties in TD mode waiting around the next corner for your maus.

      I've seen maus on redshire doing fine in an arty party game.




      So the problem isn't the map or the tank.

    Well... true... fair enough... but we don't need to buy premium. I wonder how long before they realize their business model of "we don't care if you want it or need it, we made it, you must buy it" is flawed.

    1. Probably we will have that model till some other company dont make tank game beter than WoT. only then they will have to lsiten to players.

    2. They are terrible at business. They only make a million or so profit a day. You would be able to do better of course, and they should listen to your unique snowflake view, along with the other less than unique snowflakes who disagree with their every action.

    3. Not a single eurocent from me from a year (now i don't remember what pissed me so much - maybe SuperPershing or chinese branch) - all money which should go on premium account (20 euros per month - not to much I know) I have transfered on other games - addons to Train Simulator and premium packs for War Thunder. So, yes you see one angry customer who switch his money to other games :)

    4. Knobby,
      Suck MY D, and then you can Lick WG A** all the way in.
      you little company bitch.

      I stopped paying them money. period.
      they don't a shit about their customers. period.

      you can keep pay them to rape you, if you enjoy it.

      WG = EA, yep it's getting there....


      Delete
    5. What a whining cowardly child. No-one cares if one or two anonymous whining cry babies leave the game or stop paying them money. It's about making money from the masses.
      Every time I read "I stopped paying....." I see self-centered spoilt brat who thinks that anyone gives a shit what they do as a pathetic little protest.
      Entitlement culture at it's worst. When you start wearing long pants you will be rightfully ashamed of yourself.

  12. no premium account buff no rewards for Players with a high ammount of battles.... why wg WHY??????

    ReplyDelete
  13. They need to do something to make premium accounts more attractive now any free player can invite 3 people. Maybe they should open a premium account only server cluster, that way we will get to play against other people who are willing to pay for the game and (in theory) get the most out of it instead of being just a mindless bot/lemming on a free account.

  14. "in 0.8.6, when an arty vehicle you already unlocked gets moved to a different tier, its replacement will be unlocked (but not purchased) also"


    So, if I have a GW Panther bought and GW Tiger researched, but not in the garage, in the 0.8.6 I will have them both researched, plus their replacements?

  19. that hing about "Team Captains", I think that it won't work in random battles, encounter and assault mode but if they added an "Flag Tank" mode (chosen randomly in each battle or the player with higher winrate) it could work
    it would be a mode to work together and protect a single tank and that could be a big step to improve teamwork awareness for random battle
    it could help to reduce the number of times a player can't win, no matter how hard he tries, because his team doesn't work together

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just imagine, what would happen:

      The dedicated Captain asks the others to do something, the other players answer:

      'Shut up noob' 'FU noob' 'L2P noob' or they will just continue the random movement or camping.

      Majority of the players don't give a f*ck about what other players think or say.

      Delete
    2. not to mention what will follow after orders gone bad from the captain.

      Delete
    3. Indeed, imagine the very exotic situation, where a team is made up by 40-42% WR players, and the best player has 44% WR. Or when someone just bought an account.
      (BTW I'm not obsessed with the WR at all, but I simply can't imagine how some players can "achieve" such stats)

    2. In your case it's the M40 GMC / M43 HMC, you will still have the same arty, but it will become tier VIII (+1 level), if I remember well.

      And no, no extra arties will be given.

    3. BTW, here is the article:

  22. Oh look, the usual list of problems with WoT that the developers are ignoring or claiming are not in fact problems.

    And the whole 'we dont have to do anything' to the premium account? Well we dont HAVE to play your game, you ungrateful fucks. How about you make it more worthwhile for the dedicated players that pay your bills.
