Hello Tankers, 

 

We've had some feedback from players that some of the wiggly bits aren't always in a great place. We are looking to compile a list of tanks that you feel have poor wiggly bit placement so we can investigate them. We will investigate the placements on a tank by tank basis and see if any adjustments need to be made or not. 

 

To report a tank that has issues, please make a post below following this format:

 

Country: USA

Tank Name: T1 Cunningham

Item 1: Wooden Crate

  • (Describe why it's an Issue) Wooden Crate is placed in front of the drivers view port. He wouldn't' be able to see to drive.

Item 2: Same as above if you have more items to report on this tank

  • Issue

Platform: 

 

Note:Please remember that reporting an item is not a guarantee that it will be changed. Some items may turn out to be fine after investigating.

Country- Germany

Tank Name- Pz. Sfl. IVc

Item 1- Jerrycan

  • Jerrycan is placed on the rear engine deck, and is apparently freestanding and not fastened down, but still manages to remain perfectly upright at speeds approaching 40 km/h and going round hairpin bends.

 

(Only on Xbox 360 by the way, there's no jerrycan on the One).

There's a storage box right in front of the driver's viewport, looks silly and doesn't make sense. Also the helmet on the hull looks a bit magically glued on.

The ammo box on the right hand side of the tank doesn't quite look right to me, it sits in the players eyeline in first person and bounces around while also appearing to be held on by nothing

Tank - Chi-Nu Kai

Item - Box sitting in front of Driver's view port, nigh-completely obscuring any view forward..

Platform - Xbox One

 

As already mentioned above by Metalrodent, and as I've brought up somewhere else - this is probably the 'wiggly bit' that annoys me more than any other in the game; it renders it impossible for the driver to see where he's going. Below, please find my photographs taken from the Xbox One to illustrate the complaint.

First, the frontal view:

Spoiler

 

 And one more showing it from the side:

Spoiler

Please fix this one, guys - I realize it's a premium and therefore fewer people are going to see it, but this is the dumbest one I've seen.

This is minor, but it bugs me.

 

Country - USA

Tank - M4A3E2 (Jumbo Sherman)

Item - The rear deck has two large wire sections, which I assume allowed venting and cooled the engine on the real tank. You've covered the vents with piles of tarps/blankets - I worry my tank will overheat and explode when I take it out! :trollface:

Platform - Xbox One / PS4

BTW, I just wanted to add that I appreciate that you look into that. The tanks are the stars of the game and most of those wiggly bits just make them look silly.

The Luchs has more wiggly bits than any other tank that I use. Specifically the extra-super-rubber bands that hold down the jerry cans as the tank power-slides around. They are more like weebl's when driving; it would be nice to see some straps to secure them so that they don't keep disobeying various laws of gravity and inertia ;) I will post a video to demonstrate at some point...

Platform: 360

 

Country: Germany

Tank Name: Pz. Kpfw. II Ausf. D

Item 1: Jerry can on left back of vehicle -- unsecured and would realistically fall over on the hull

The satchel and blanket pile on the store deck at the back appear to be held on with nothing, looks somewhat unrealistic. Could be solved with a bit of wire or netting holding them down or something.

Again same problem as normal, blanket and tarp sitting on the back seemingly held on by magic. Not complaining about them being there (though spare parts and track links would seem more likely), when your tank is that big and slow storing stuff on it makes sense, but not when it looks like it should just fall off lol.

This is not a rant thread. It's for serious post only for us to track tanks to investigate. I have removed any post that are not reporting a tank for investigation.

Considering the Mutant 6 just came out and is going to be much more visible/common, this seems like a good one to fix

 

And yes, that Can on the front looks like crap just standing there
