If I had gotten an email, my response would have been that the Extreme Variants are interesting visually, but completely unpleasant and un-fun ingame

Raibot thank you so much for doing this. Its great to see WG willing to listen to something the community clearly feels very strongly on. Its a huge relief to know you're at least paying attention. Hopefully this will reveal the (hopefully) fact that they suck and the majority dislike being outcamped and sniped by unseen foes. They turn E100s into Borsigs!

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?

I got my survey, ''tis done.

 

I like some variation to alter my default play style.  Learning how to play a map over and over probably doesn't help my stats but it keeps me edgy.  Just don't run them match after match after match.  I need a few clear weather maps to restore my pride sometimes....LOL

Survey done.

 

I don't understand why someone would even like the visual effect of it because its just dirt, snow or rain flying around. You cant see anything that would be visually pleasing. Game play? Well I think we know how that is.

I appreciate that WG tried something new but It didn't work out (almost immediately) and should not have progressed to the state that it did.

 

I'm very happy I have not seen these maps for some time now.

The car headlights against sandstorm is quite visually evocative. It also makes different strategies viable on that map.

 

Also, typhoon kind of improves a fairly weak map.

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 have already written that I don't receive almost any emails from WG. That was a problem also in supertest. And yes my email address is correct!

If I am perfectly honest, I love the look and feel of the Extreme Weather maps but absolutely hate the reduction in view/radio range. If this reduction in view/radio range was removed, I wouldn't have any problems with them.

I'm very happy I have not seen these maps for some time now.

 

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......

Entire offensives were held off due to weather. Just ask Eisenhower why he held off Overlord from June 5th to the 6th.

 

on the other hand in Korea there was a tank battle that happened due to fog. The U.S. and Koreans each knew they were in the area and were scouting for each other during the night and actually found each other when they collided in the fog. Then shots fired.
