I'm just hoping that any new Achievements are not RNG-based. I like ones that I can work towards or try for as opposed to just hoping I luck into the right situation. 

 

And didn't the 360 players get an achievement for having all achievements in the game? That would lead me to believe that any new achievements would be next-gen console only. (Which is fine by me, I play on both the 360 and the X1, but I can see some 360 players taking issue with that).

I tried, but I can't see "dedicated replay system" fitting in that "more!" section.

 

I need that feature so much. The 5 minute recording really sucks, since when I have a good game and record it, it only shows the final moments, which is a shame.

On xbox one you can have two controllers signed in to the same profile.

 

 

ooh, that's a cool feature.

If I had an XB1 I'd definitely try that out when my brother visits :)

Okay female crew? As far as I am aware the only nations that gave women anything remotely resembling front line positions were Germany and Russia. And in Russia most women served as medical personal . Notable exceptions  include the 586th Fighter Aviation Regiment , the 45th Taman Guards Night Bomber Regiment , the 125th Guards Bomber Aviation Regiment. And we have various positions in the infantry particularly snipers filled by women like Nina Alexeyevna Lobkovskaya and Lyudmila Paylichenko whose body count isn't nothing to sneeze at .Positions in the armoured core were rarely filled by women and I can think of no famous female Russian tanker off the top of my head. 

 

And as far as I am aware German women under the Third Reich served mostly in back line positions. A few became camp guards and if the rumours are to be believed served quite capably if a bit more severely then their male counterparts. . 

 

So what gives?

In the game with fictional tanks (and some completely made up), that's what bothering you?

There was some one  ( Stalin help me if I can remember their username ) that once said there is a line between realism and creditably. You can bend realism a bit , especially for a game. But when you start going beyond even a suspension of disbelief   and start breaking creditably it becomes too much . We have a clear and defined source material that we have been somewhat faithful to. Female crew are just not even remotely credible.

except they are, because THEY ACTUALLY EXISTED - thus your entire post/complaint is null and void

 

That said, if you want to talk about "remotely credible" then talk to WG about fake Bee-Ess like the Waffle and some other Tier10 embarassments

Actually, there was a Russian female tank commander: https://en.wikipedia...andra_Samusenko

 

Anyway, this is a tank arcade game, with the new phisics system, we're way pass any credible material, so this is just a fun upgrade, nothing more.

Really prove it cause all the research I've done only points to a smattering of drivers. I can't even find loaders or gunners let alone commanders. A driver does not a crew make.

Extra achievements are always separate from the original base game set. It's about time we get more trophies. Nothing has been added since the British line.

I find it funny some of you will use a singular example to justify something like a female crew. Yet will baulk when someone uses a singular example to justify an entry into a nations tech tree.

You said that there were no female tank commanders, I showed you one. Can you show me a photo or blueprint for the waffle E-100?

neither is the waffle, yet its in the game, if you don't want women crew voices, DON'T BUY IT/USE IT, simple as that, stop whining over a voice that you aren't forced to use.

I am not justifying the Waffentrager auf E100 in particular . And about the only thing that can be said in defence of it is at least the gun and the chassis existed if never together. But  I am not defending it personally. There are plenty of other tanks people complain about cause they only existed in blueprints or limited prototypes .

 

To me a female crew is at best a prototype , sure we  find smatterings of them here and there. But if people can complain about the credibility of prototype type tanks facing off against  battlefield proven designs I can question the credibility of female crews at the very least.

What are you smoking mate. We don't choose the random crews that come with new Tanks. I can't for ( as an extreme example ) choose to only have white crew members on my American tanks.

I think crew customisation would help you there.

 

No wait it might not change genders.

One of the updates talked about in the Q&A was exactly crew customization, whatever that means, so maybe in a couple of months you can.

It looks like Tournaments are arriving for Xbox One Insiders in the next month, with the new Arena feature.
