They need to move on from the 360 and commit fully to the xbox one and on.  If they do that, then those kids will go find a used xbox one, if they want to continue playing.

All I get from you guys about the 360 is assumptions. And I get called a child foe asking one simple thing. Show me from WG that the 360 is in fact the reason they don't improve there game. You can't because its not true. There are others reasons but its not the 360. So again my point is show me facts. When you can't find any. Maybe a light bulb will appear above your head. And you will figure more plausible reasons for WGs directions.

Why am I hearing that all stages for the Tusk can be bought out?  There are Tusk already in the game.  Are we to believe that people already ground out the 900k xp for the final stage?

 

Please clarify which stage of the Tusk cannot be bought out.

 

They would be lying to you/exaggerating as all stages cannot be bought out.

Stages 1-4 cannot be be skipped/bought. These stages also require players to have the Tier IX-X tank in order to complete.

Its true, are you really so daft you can't notice the truth? Wargaming will not admit the 360 is holding them back. Hell, I wish I knew the profit margin the 360 is making them for their continued support of it. Are these people on an ancient console paying wargaming so much they cant afford to get a next gen console?

WG has said that certain maps had to be removed because the original 360s couldn't keep up running them.  This came from PAINGOD back last summer in a livestream.  You're never going to hear them blame 360 directly because they don't want to alienate that portion of the playerbase.  The closest thing you'll see is that map statement.  Just because WG can't say it because of bad publicity didn't make it not true. 

 

But they've said that they'll support 360 till MS drops it ,so all this is spitting in the wind.

The buy out price is a bit extreme tho. Might have gotten more buyouts if it wasn't so much.

A map? That the 360 can't render under the low graphic field they (WG) are using now for the 360? Sound PAINfully like an excuse to me. But you would have to believe him. I must have missed that stream. I mean he wouldn't mislead us right? Ok you win its the 360s fault. Carry on.

It's pretty fair when you account for the value of the time saved for not grinding. I think most people forget about the value of time when looking at the prices. Players always have the option to earn the tanks for Free aswell!

TUSK got the AMX 13 105 chassis so its faster than the sheridan :hiding:

 

Not really... have checked how terrible it's track traverse speed is? It turns slower than most tier 8 medium tanks.

You guys required only enough "earning" so that you could say you weren't selling tier X tanks.  Surprised you can do it with a straight face.  What makes it laughable is that you let people buy out the hard part of the contracts.  What a joke.

 

Congrats to you Tusk owners.  You paid a fourtune for a mediocre tier 10 with no silver bonus. And by buying it you have emboldened Wargaming to just do more of this.

 

I want to renew my previous offer.  I deeply regret starting this game on Console rather than PC.  If you guys will give me a code for one tier 8 premium of my choice on PC I will delete this console version and my 20 tier tens.  I regret not forseeing how lame this console version would become.

I believe that Stages 1 through 4 can not be purchased. Of course, they are the easiest to do an can be cleared pretty quickly.

 

Stages 5 through 8 CAN be purchased, though they are exceedingly expensive (adds up to something like US$200 combined).

 

Stage 5 - 2,125 Gold

Stage 6 - 4,975 Gold

Stage 7 - 11,655 Gold

Stage 8 - 27,300 Gold

 

Grand Total: 46,055 Gold. If you buy the $100 gold packages, that equals $184.22 US. 

 

If a Tier X Premium tank costs $200 I'm not buying that, either.  

 

Wow that's a shed load of gold and bloody ridiculous. whole new level for WG and players think the Merc update was for the game. Lol.

This is almost worth tipping Quickybaby on his stream to point out.  I am sure the PC players will get a good laugh out of it.  This game should be renamed:

 

World of Tanks: Pay to Win Garbage Tanks: XBox 360 Edition.

It was few maps from what he said.  The oldest of the 360s hard drives couldn't keep up with rendering.  They current transfer data fast enough.  They took them away to be reworked.  I think they're the maps we just got back.

 

It's all a moot point.  They're going to support 360 till the end ,and our server population isn't big enough to take the loss of 360 players.

That is the sad truth, the game is not popular enough to bother making better.

It’s not for sale. It won’t be for sale. The Tusk will be earnable only. That is confirmed from the mouth of Jeff Gregg on today’s live stream.

Any other crisis you’d like to manufacture without any facts?

But as you guys have stated many times these are not premium tanks. Do therefore they shouldn’t have any gold options to bypass a stage. I understand that they come with other things like premium time and boost ops. But I think some of us would just prefer to earn the tank without all the bells and whistles attached. 

 

Also since they are tech tree tanks without any benefits the gold price is kind of a cheap tactic. If we can buy mercenary tech tree tanks with gold one could argue that they would like to buy other tech tree tanks with gold so they don’t have to grind them out. And before you say you can buy paying gold to convert xp from premium tanks or elite tanks to free xp, to do that one has to grind out enough xp for that to happen. There is no way someone can buy gold and just buy a tier 5, 7, or 8 tech tree tank unless they have a bunch of xp saved up on their premium and elite tanks. But someone can do that on the merc tech tree. Someone whose never played the game before can just go and buy the bigtop or the slapjack or the smoothman. Kind of a slap in the face to players who have grinded to tier 7 or 8. So get rid of the gold buyouts. If people want premium time or boost ops they can buy it from the store. If they want the tank make them actually play the game and earn the tank instead of taking the easy way out. 

 

Sorry for the long post. And have a great day

A chain is only as strong as it's weakest link. Out of the three consoles in question, the 360 is obviously the weakest and by a big margin. Would you agree to that?

 

Because there's cross platform play between the Microsoft consoles, the basic game experience has to be the same for all players. The stronger consoles can add some graphical effects here and there, but the map layout has to remain the same. Another big offender are the game physics, which can only be as complex as the 360's CPU can handle.

It would only take.... over a month with just the goal of exp. The whole idea of mission is that it is supposed to be something difficult to acheive, not just tank grinding. I.E assist with 6000 damage. Get a Radley Walters medal. Assist with 5k damage and survive. EXP takes away the whole challenge. Also with the last parts being purchasable it removes the whole challenege. 

I really hate how mercenaries were added with just the intention of money grabbing, monetised in every way possible. Most disappointing update since the addition of Double Cap Assault


(And yes i do need a new banner i can't be bothered to change it yet)
