I don't bother reading all the threads on the site lol but ta.

 

But was it really so hard for Rai to simply not provide that link? People who opted out of emails shouldn't simply be left out when there's plenty of alternatives.

 

yeah and i did not receive anything, while i still get their monthly mail about buy this tank or play for this tank news mail.......

If you would've read the thread you'd know by now that the survey only went out to a random selected group of 125000 tankers.

Really no need to send to all. The result will be the same with that large sample group.

It seems that its a 50 50 split on this. So I propose a compromise. I love the look of the weather maps but have to admit that sometimes the mechanic can be very frustrating.  I propose keeping the visuals of the maps but remove the mechanics. Then every so often WG could do a fog of war even like ranked battle where the maps and mechanics are in full force. 

 

As i have never seen on person say they hate the look. They just hate the mechanics.

I think the weather effects look good, but what kills the game mode is the fact that spotting range is nerfed, but the render ranges remain the same.  That promotes camping, hiding, and very passive game-play (which makes it a lot less fun, IMO).  From my understanding there were technical reasons why the render range can't be changed and that is a shame.

No, they actually came and told me why it was deleted, its because, you could vote multiple times on it with said link, tried it out and it was true so putting out a public link could skew the results with multiple people voting multiple times

... and you can tell them that it's bad and should be fixed, and in the answer you'll see the middle finger, because paying the money typical idiots would not be able to play the game and most of them never came here.:trollface:

Survey done! 

I personally like the different weather variants. I would like to see new weather variants and maps as often as possible. I enjoy variety and new challenges. It forces players to get within visual range.  But I mostly play heavies and mediums, so I like to get up close and brawl.  lol
However at the same time I could say I don't like maps which aren't favorable to heavies and mediums. And are more favorable to TD's and arty.  But I look at it this way. You have maps and variants of maps which are favorable to each class of tanks. Which means it will balance itself out by playing more battles. You won't always get the map or conditions you want. But you will eventually if you keep playing battles. The point being that each tank class has it's favorable conditions. So getting rid of the weather variants might help some people but hurt others who's tanks benefit from the it. We can't keep asking them to change the game to suit a specific class of tank or a specific playing style. That would ruin the game and keep it from becoming more interesting, challenging and in turn less enjoyable to play in my opinion.

I like them as they add variety, but that is because I don't see them very often, which makes them something of a novelty. Creating many more, or upping the frequency in the rotation might make me change my mind. I think that may already be the case for many others that might otherwise like or tolerate them more. 

 

Maybe the view range mechanic needs to change to preserve the inherent qualities of each tank. In standard maps that has already been delicately balanced for each tank. Maybe a fixed reduction of view range like -200m, or make it a figure depending on the battle tier of the match (tier 3 battles lose 100m but tier 8 lose 225m) to make it more consistent?

Personally, I love the weather maps... But, that's because I prefer to play max camo spotting type of tanks.

 

With most tier X tanks currently having 400 view range, a light tank is less useful on non weather maps... But that extra camo boost from the weather makes them as vital as they were last year before you guys drastically altered the games spotting mechanics as well as soft coverage placement on various maps.

Ultimately as light tanks are the hardest type to effectively play, and since too many light tanks are newer players that are unfamiliar with previous mechanics... The advantage of this is generally only realized by a slim portion of players.

If your spotters suck weather makes for a lopsided loss.

I can't speak for all but will happily share what appealed to me.  On clear weather maps, the fight zones are terribly predictable.  People go where their strengths have been proven and they play the map pretty much as they have done countless times before.  We all have our honeyholes whether it be for spotting, sniping, flanking and (ugh) camping.

 

With the weather, it changes all that.  If you go where you always go, the predictability is all but trashed.  Your expected outcomes are severely compromised.  That's what I like.  It forces me to find a "bad weather" ambush point, a different scout point, a different sniping point.  The guys getting shot and hating it are either still trying to learn this variation of predictability (and dying like I have repeatedly done) or going where they've always gone and getting the undesired outcomes that will bring.

 

I know the weather variation can be learned and exploited as I'm finding new places to do just that.  Not quite there yet but have been able to repeat success with some predictability.  Sadly, that in itself might be adding to the frustration of the guys not quite there yet and getting caught and shot where they wish they hadn't......

I believe that the Extreme Weather Maps, don't occur often enough to be worried about.

 

I am more concerned about going over the same maps, in the same weather conditions, over and over, as it does seem to happen recently.

 

I reckon that I have played 1 Sandstorm, 1 Typhoon, a couple of Thunderstorms and 2 Blizzards, in the past 200 or so games!

 

I don't think this is too often.

 

Don't people get bored of going to the same parts of the map, playing the same game style, racking up the same number of kills?

 

The Extreme Weather changes this.
