A) This was a Live Q/A as in he spoke this

B) The Waffle IS Balanced​ in this version of the game (Stat Performance Wise), with our current meta on Console. If you bother looking at the data provided on WoTInfo.

I don't think anyone would argue that the stats show its balanced same with the deathstar. Fact is the guns are broken and the amount of battles both have been used skew it all. The stats and reality are 2 different things. 

The wthstill has 4th highest avg damage in both xbox and ps4 and it's played 2-5times more than the top highest damage tanks and it still 1 of the lowest survival rates of the t10 tds in the last 30 days according to wotinfo. But that's OK though. The stats show its not overperforming because it's has so many more games over anything else.

Just to add on to that point, being "balanced" doesn't equal "fun". A game that rewards you with a 50/50 chance of a cookie or a kick to the crotch is statistically perfectly balanced, but by no means fun.

Well depends if you have a fetish for cookies or a kick to the crotch I guess. Haha

You could argue that's what the 25% RNG is for.

You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

So only getting kicked in the nuts 37.5%... or potentially 62.5% of the time.

 

Still sucks either way.

Cool. So I should expect that my 13 90 should remain as is when moved to tier 9  when the tier X lights come into the game? It's a very balanced and viable tank right now. 

 

 

Shhhhhhh. We save this for when they are added and wg [edited]up yet again. All us scouts get to go "but the waffle stayed....." ;)

Despite many here suggesting me it is not something I would do. WG avoid or misdirect any questions the community wants answered and just give [edited]back so would be a useless endeavor.
Hell I even got kicked out of supertest for calling WG on their incompetence with some choice words.

Maybe a poll should be made for this?

This is basic statistics, being ignorant of it doesn't solve anything.  If you bracket data based off WN8 skill you see just how ridiculous it is.  There are plenty of poor performance players who drag down stats in vast volumes.  This is why you need to look at more than just one sample.

According to WG they do look at more then one sample skill set of players IE not just everyone thrown into 1 group

If you look at the developer post regarding the Grille 15's performance, only the overall win rates were considered when justifying that the Grille should not have the on par 850 alpha.

All the question you see do come from the Community. If you want something answer, you have to ask it! If you guys don't submit questions, then I try to ask some for the players on their behalf. 

 

Here is where the question for the Black Stripes came from:

http://forum-console.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/177753-question-for-wg-about-the-isu-130s-paint-scheme/page__pid__3675901#entry3675901

 

Ignorance at its finest.  As much as all of us have different opinions, theres no way that minor cosmetic concerns out weigh all of the questions put up from all the forumers.  Examples being vehicle balance, button mapping, radial errors, map bugs, UI bugs, inconsistent vehicle pricing, future updates, explanations why some vehicles are removed and others are not.  I could go on with more but my point should be clear.  While some may favor other aspects over others, there is a clear consensus on the issues the community wants addressed/changed/fixed.  Max is blatantly ignorant to this which greatly dampens communication to the Devs.  Getting him the hell out and having just anyone with some logic in his place would be a massive improvement.

Max is not ignorant, he is limited in what he can answer, and which questions do get answered by WG. Everything Official WG puts up has to go through an approval process, blaming Max and calling him ignorant wont change things getting answered...

 

More united voices will, the main issue is everyone has thier own personal priorities, some of those asking in very inappropriate and disrespectful ways, its why I was doing my April Questions list, to give a more united opinion on things to ask, and to put them out in a sensible and respectful manner.

Do you really think that? I'm fairly certain they just wanted to release some initial numbers on how it was performing accross all games. This breakdown is alot easier for Max to release since similar numbers can easily be accessed on WoTInfo. Again, as I've said WG Info is basically kept under lock and key and needs Approval to release, some Approvals are alot easier to get then others

Most of those have already been addressed/talked about by PAINGOD. We try to not repeat the same question multiple times. 

Vehicle balance - Answered 

Button Mapping - Answered

Radial errors - If you have a bug, report it in te bug report section. Q&A is not for reporting bugs.

Map Bugs - See above, report them.

UI Bugs - See above, report them.

Vehicle pricing - Answered

Future Updates - Answered (I just asked this about 2 weeks ago, did you not see it?)

Tank removal - Answered

 

I would suggest going back and reading the Q&A's as nearly every hot topic has been answered and discussed. What's left are questions about random stuff. :honoring:

Did you not look at its damage output and survival rate? Currently #1 TD in damage/survival and you want it to be doing more? That would not be a good idea for balance.

Dancing around questions does not count as answered.  Bugs and UI errors are for the most part ignored now such as the repair wheel.  Your still latched onto global win rate as opposed to looking at different samples.  I do not know how to explain this any more simply since you don't seem to understand the effect skill will have on performance with skewing.  You spend so much typing putting out non sense responses that answer nothing and misdirecting questions further.

I don't answer the questions, only ask them. The answers are all from the big guy, PAINGOD. You may not like the answers but they have all be answered.

 

Look at every build notes released, tons of bug fixes so not sure what you're talking about. 

 

What makes you think we are latched onto Global win rate? We have answered many times that we look at data based on player skill, not overall. Win rate by skill is only 1 of the many things looked at for balance, not the only thing. Balancing tanks by win rate is a player made rumor so don't believe it.
