I shall preface this post by saying I’m sorry in advance for the incoming rant.

 

1. Maps. For the most part I am okay with the removing of some maps to make way for new ones, that is not what I’m here to complain about. It is of course the tier structuring. Whoever thought widepark at tier 9/10 was a good idea is just plain clueless. In fact the game has been transitioning to bigger maps for a while now, and then you throw a wrench in that by giving is tiny maps at tier 10. Brilliant! 

 

2. The update brought along a slew of bugs and glitches. Everyone knows what they are. Why haven’t they been fixed? And a bigger question would be, why weren’t they tested and fixed before the update? I would rather wait for an update that was released smoothly, than one riddled with bugs. 

 

3. Weather variants: please for the love of God change the spotting mechanics. These maps just promote horrible gameplay. Whoever camps hardest, wins. 

 

4. The replay system. Great job. I think it’s one of the best things implemented in a long time. Can you implement a save feature? I realize PS4 and X1 have recording features but to be honest they are both rubbish. 

 

5. War Stories: I love it. I hope you have plans to keep going with new stories from different nations. Each nation should get a chance at a free crew imo. I do think it’s a great way to teach new players. For us veterans can we get a slight bump to silver earnings? Seems a bit too low to make it worth our while. 

 

After the recent the end is nigh threads I would like to add that you do have a good game. And I will continue tomorrow play it, fund it, and love it. But the aforementioned things really do need a change. Especially the maps and weather variants. Thanks.

Agree 100 %. In fact, I don't bother anymore with Widepark, I yolo myself away and be done with it.

Normally I would say: Deadline, but WG is sloppy with announcing release dates that this can't be the reason.

Are you still angry, or are you just angry? Apparently, frequency of weather maps was decreased a lot, and they brought in new spotting values. Let's see how this works, even with the render range issue.

I don't mind the screen-to-video feature of the PS4, but a replay is so much more than a video. I would love to save some of them. @Wargaming, last I checked I have a hard disk in my console. Please feel free to use it for this. At least use it to save the battle logs so that your log issues and server downtimes don't affect us.

I wouldn't say "love it", but it's a nice idea.

1 -  We already addressed this with the community.  The maps will come back, but no ETA.

2 - The build is always tested prior to release by the QA team.  You have to realize that a build will always show signs of issues when thousands of people play the game.  Bugs are inevitable.  

3 - There will be changes on how tanks perform in weather variant tanks.  We spoke about this in a developer stream.  

4 - Will pass your feedback to the development and design team

5 - We will be working on other nations.  No intent to give players free crew as of now, but that can change in the future. The economy will be the same for everyone with no changes in the future.

 

Thanks.

5. That's a shame as after achievements only real way to play WS is with a Tier 8 Premium.

Thanks. 

Thanks for responding.

As I said, I’m fine with the maps that were removed. My gripe was with the unlocking of tier restrictions on the smaller maps.

widepark, tundra, etc should not be at tier 10.

 

 

Sorry for for the rant, just a few things making me rage more than normal. 

 

I’ll go back in my hole now

I would like the war story maps in mp instead. Honestly, they are better especially Caen with the beach nearby. Some of the maps that got removed happened on PC for good like Dragon Ridge including a couple to a few others.

1. This should be your top priority right now, your losing players. Wait until the big games like PUBG, Call of Duty WW2, etc. Be released... you will see.

2. Why not do a public test server like PC does? Honestly it's no secret what tanks are coming out as they were already seen on PC.

3. We have enough weather variants please don't make more.

5. Please don't waste our map designers time on doing war stories... we want the old maps back. War stories is like a training session, there's enough now we don't need more. They lack rewards and player base. Story teller achievement says it all... 2.54% of gamers unlocked this and only 0.26% people completed all chapters of 4 stories on xbox atleast.

Filter is messed

doesnt show who I’ve spotted just the ribbon

spotted sound beeps like I’m playing operation 

when I make a platoon I can’t see it until someone joins

 

this is just off the top of my head, I’m sure there is more.

 

 

maybe it’s my ISP?

Too add on RaiBot...I think it is a bit of an error to keep the old Redshire and have the new one alongside. If this has to be...Tier lock the original to lower tiers.

Favorite Tanks: Panzer IV, Churchill VII, FV304, Tiger P, StuG III G

How can there be no ETA on the missing maps after 5 months? Get your priorities straight.

For me Constant detected beeps and the scores reversing are the main ones......

how could the scores flipping bug be introduced ? and why has it not been fixed yet ?

Would also be good if some of the bugs from earlier updates were fixed, for example the tanks that suddenly lose the normal engine sound and are like electric cars

I need some Screne Coast, Severgorsk, Pearl River, and Live Oaks in my life and far less Ensk, Widepark, Liberty Falls, Ghost Town and Windstorm.

Maps in bold might all be good maps if they were made bigger or restricted to low tiers.
