Interesting, what are you guys building up towards? I just finished the war stories and it has led me to believe you all are planning something big with either another  grand war story mission or something for all of us to enjoy in multiplayer.

 

I like the pillboxes, I thought they were a neat idea but maybe have them look nicer or different tiers of pillboxes? The hellcat turret for it is alright but that can be a light anti-tank pillbox. Maybe have an 88mm for a medium sized pillbox?

 

Mission 2 was a drag, forcing a hellcat to play like that is just pure evil. You are better off putting a sherman instead. 

 

War stories are fine, but the replay value is low.

 

 

The only war story mission I liked was the cuban missile crisis one, cause special force tanks

Sounds fun, but no thanks.

 

I'm not touching these until can afford more gold.

 

I did the first ones & missed the chance on some pretty good deals, wasn't ready to purchase gold & wasn't running specific lines/nations where some of the tanks would have been useful for training.  Not happening again.  There should really be a way to earn the savings again.  

 

The reward parameters weren't clear when 'Runaway Tiger' was introduced: 

65% savings! 
AVAILABLE FOR ONLY 24 HOURS UPON COMPLETION OF RUNAWAY TIGER

Cost

1,280

https://console.worl.../runaway-tiger/

 

Wasn't clear, as it didn't specify anything about only being available for the 'first' completion (I do see that it is clearer in the 'newest' story tank descriptions though).

What tanks do we get for finishing these war stories?

I am sorry but I would find this update more appealing if.... I played war stories, but there is 0 incentive to gain by it.....

You can get a premium tank for a nice gold discount, but what if you already have those tanks? You can get silver or gold but you can get double that in an actual pvp lobby or should i say AvA lobby (armor).

 

There has to be something to draw in people in the same boat I am in. 

 

Increase the platoon size to match PvP lobbies of 5? 

 

Make it simpler to control AI. Lets face it AI is actually DI (dumb) in any game you play. 

 

Maybe run tournaments or Community OPs in War Stories, monthly? The player with the highest score, or Xp, I dunno, wins something, If the prize was worth it, you would have much more of the player base heading that direction. (prem time more than 1 or 3 days, War chests, Prem Tanks, a Camo or Emblem Voucher just please  NO MORE CUSTOM FLAGS!!!)

 

Im just spit-balling it, leaving my opinion.

Interesting...

Instead of 1 story with 3 chapters and one tank, we get 3 stories, one chapter and 3 tanks. I understand it's a theme based string but in essence that's what we got. I like the idea.

Introduction of packages... another place to spend my silver.

Why the same countries? Why not Japan, Czech, China, and Swiss?

I play ws to pre-train crews for multiplayer and make a little silver

I think War Stories, overall, was just a big dud they keep throwing money at, in the hopes to make it work.  Seems like there would be better things to spend money and resources on that the game actually needs.  The whole thing seems like a glorified Proving Grounds and that it could've just been included in that part of the game.

Well the new country is Germany, that we get to play for.

I like the new War Stories I played(the one with the Panther and with the Arty)

But:

The one with the Panther has a Fountain that has a hitbox bigger than what is visible. I tried to shoot over the base of it, clearly having line of sight and I hit an invisible object.

Can you teach the narrator to pronounce Staupe right?

I don't like that every of these War Stories only has one chapter. I saw the new WS and thought: "Nice, 9 new missions."

 

BUT:

The worst part is this:

Starting a new War Story in a platoon is damn complicated. If you go as a leader in Multiplayer in a platoon and change to war stories, the second person goes to the garage and can select the tank. You on the other hand are in the welcome screen of that story and can mash the A button as often as you like and nothing happens. Then you go back in Multiplayer to shut down the platoon, to form it newly in the garage of that story. So you go to that story, press A on the welcome screen and it skips the garage part, and starts the intro, which you skip, because you don't want to be spoilerd, because you want to play the first time with your mate, or in my case, my girlfriend, and then after the battle loaded fully you need to go back to garage. After all that loading and skipping, you are finally in the garage, can invite your mate and start the mission. Seriously, what the hell?

Not really. The Petite Tiger is a German tank "stolen " by the French for the story. You can use it as a dual trainer for german & french crews.

I sent in a ticket explaining that I blew through all 4 War Stories scenarios before I had any idea what a premium tank was, knew how to get gold, etc., and asked if I could be offered the tanks again. The request was denied (I understand and accept their reasoning though).

Green team "Calvary Alpha" & "Calvary Bravo" should be "_CAVALRY_ Alpha and "_CAVALRY_ Bravo" -- not an uncommon misspelling, yet unacceptable among professionals such as yourselves.

_Calvary_ was the hill on which Jesus Christ was crucified.

The CAVALRY are soldiers who ride into battle on horses, tanks, etc.

Thank you for the anticipated prompt correction.

Why do you use valuable disk space for this war stories thing? We want more maps and not less due to space limitations!!!

 

Seperate war stories as an add-on that people that actually play it can download!

 

Thanks!

Wow, more USSR is the enemy stories -sigh- the whole Russia/USSR is the enemy thing got old way before you guys at Wargaming implemented war stories. Stop. Let the USSR be good for once, and I mean not in a USSR vs USSR scenario (the arty story doesn’t count as it’s a unit going rogue).

1 level each down from 3? Sure I’m ok with that, less time consuming etc.

USSR vs USSR - Ok cool we get civil war storylines, just wish it wasn’t the USSR. Sick of seeing the USSR/Russia painted as bad guys all the time.

USA vs Germany - stop giving us American stories please, we get it the West is good, east is bad. Stop. Let us have a few stories free of good westerners. Let us acquire more eastern crews (China, Japan, USSR, etc.)

Germany vs USSR - ok I like this one while it still makes the USSR the bad guys, it gives us a German crew, and we get a German point of view in a WW2-ish kind of battle.

But seriously stop making the USSR the bad guys!

War Story Sieben Ritter:

If you play a tier I tank, the defense towers destroy the enemies too fast for the game and a trigger isn't triggered so no new enemies spawn after the first wave of tanks from the south are destroyed.

The arty never really bothered me to much . Mind you, I was playing very conservative. I hung back on the first 2 encounters and even approaching the city . I got straight between the building. It was close. When there were only arty left . I put the hammer down to race over to repair tool box . But once arty saw me. Even at full speed they were landing shots close to me.  

I was giving orders every second I could to my team , my heavy was the only tank that actually did anything useful.
