Been a question in my mind recently due to the "50 gb" discussions I've seen over the last few days. Personally, for me, WarStories has no incentives whatshoever to play and is currently just a waste of file space. You can't grind tanks with it, you can't make credits with it - it isn't even fun. It really isn't helping with player retention (or attraction) either. WarStories should be regarded as, "in hit-or-miss" terms as a complete misfire, and thus should be removed so we can have our maps back.

 

What do you think?

Waste of file space. Should be removed.

It's never going to bring back the maps and it's just a fun to play mode. Why on earth would anyone even bother to grind tanks through it? I normally play it to just let out steam when I get tired of playing with the large teams of idiots

I doubt the War Stories maps add very much to the file size.  By the looks of them they add very few new assets (except for the missile launchers in Cuba).

I voted with unsure.

So actually there are lots of games that are well over 50 GB. Even the WoT itself is little over thus border - it's 50.66 GB. So obviously these 50 GB are not the obstacle for the maps return. For me that 50 GB border is maybe some rumor or just bad excuse. :hiding:

There is basically no reason to replay them, so WG should just make them like limited two week events - perhaps throw in some medals for those who they're somehow a reward.

you blokes never really pay attention, do you.... the "lost maps" are MAINLY maps that have also been removed from PC.

It has nothing to do with 360, 50 Gigs, war stories or tin foil hats, because NONE of that stuff is related to PC and the maps are still gone from there too.

They are simply maps that have been taken out of rotation.

Why s that so hard to comprehend?

Because when they were removed, they stated it was because of some 360s, not because PC doesn't have them..

 

How hard is "that" to understand?

Oh, comparing ourselves to PC?  Then why the hell do we still have the Waffle, but have lost the awesomeness that was Live Oaks?

Yeah... but no. 

 

Voted unsure. It’s an assumption that the maps were removed in order to make room for War Stories. What if WS hardly takes up space and the maps were removed to make room for the Swedish line and German heavies?

First they said it was because some 360s couldn't handle the maps, and they also removed others that shared resources with the bad maps. They then said something about a file limit in a Q&A I didn't directly see.

I don't know if both are true, but they need to get those maps back in rotation.

Funny, I was watching a PC streamer on twitch the other day and saw quite a few of our removed maps. What say ye?

 

And yes, do what ever it takes to get ALL of our maps back.

XII doesn't even bear thinking about, XI is daunting enough. 10 down so far, 800 to go......

I enjoy war stories.... but not enough to justify removing other content.... esepcailly.when that content is just as important to the game as the tanks we play.

 


 

"Betty" is my Hellcat, and she's an amazing beast!!   I play for fun, not for stats..... but I always play to WIN!!

I play a fair amount of War Stories, but only the very first mission. With the Ops it can be pretty good for crew training, as well as lucrative on the Silver side pulling down 80-100k in Tier VIII Premiums. 

 

And I would give it up in a second to get the missing maps back.

PAiN touched on the 50GB subject briefly in a twitch, he said (paraphrased) that once you go over 50GB, a higher level of game certification is required so it sounds like WG won't stretch to the certification (which I presume means it costs time / money to obtain) and more importantly, he quickly glanced over that if they go over 50GB then they couldn't release (sell, a F2P) a physical disk version.

Sobriquet. Sohbrikay, Soh - bri - kay....
