Just read the somua's little advertisement blurb....equal or lesser tiered opponents in one shot eh? More like shooting yourself in the foot once again WG. It's one thing to tell a white lie to sell tanks, but to blatantly lie to our faces like that? You must think we're all as ignorant as yourselves in terms of how this game works. You just keep shelling out the bullcrap, and people that know better will continue calling it out.

 

If you say your marketing department is terrible, THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Every single screw up like this is just further evidence that no one at WGCB plays WoT:Mercenaries, and thus has no idea what is going on, nor how to resolve the simplest issues.

Where does it say "one shot"?

This is what the page states for me:

Block Quote

DESTROY ENEMIES WITH A SINGLE CLIP

You can potentially inflict 1,500 damage thanks to the Somua SM's 100m five-shot autoloader, enough to wipe out enemies of equal or lower tiers in a single clip!

 

Edit: Next time post a screen-shot in case they change something.

Edit 2: Followed my own advice and quoted OP

^this an looks like someone either misread themselves or is just plain bitter at wg. However even if it said one shot most ppl understand its french an wg is talking about clipping anyways.

I can perfectly read that "one shot" as i start the game. Perks of living in one of those european countries WG C-B doesn't want to know about :popcorn:

They obviously meant one clip.

 

I do think they make a few too many spelling mistakes but this is the silliest thing to get upset about.

They obviously don't give a damn about the game if a mistake as stupid as this slips by them. How hard can it be to proofread your advertisements before you finalize them and put them into the game? THAT is the real issue.

They covered it up. I saw 'one shot' as well. They quickly fixed it as soon as they realized people caught on to their sneaky play on words

Spelling is one thing mistakes is and can be forgiven but there are to many flaws hickups and where the H is dubble check before going to print ?

 

Where is the quality control wake up you are a company not a kindergarden you are dealing with money and customers paying you for it.

Lol

90% win rate tonight .

Obviously i found the real secret to getting good rng/team, positive WG votes.

They're watching people, don't tell north Texas princess.

 

I personally feel it was just a simple mistake not a malicious ploy.

No one said anything about being malicious. The words we're looking at in this thread are negligence and apathy.

Neither of which you want associated with a game developer, yet they've turned into WG's calling card.

I've seen it and read it straight away as a mistake. I had read the Souma reviews first though. If you buy any premium on the premise that it'll one shot anything that is equal tier, you need your bumps felt. Unless of course they introduce some sort of tier eight FV 183 merc hybrid.

 

Now there's an idea.

Small mistakes make big ripples.
If this were a legal issue I could take them for on where false advertising claims were involved you bet your bottom dollar they would clean up their act.

Regardless of your opinion of how serious it is, it's a mistake, fact, and WG need to do a better job. If you disagree then you're encouraging a far less professional service and quality game.

ROFLMAO..... Yes, get a lawyer who charges $300 an hour to sue to get $50 back on a pixel tank under the premise of false advertising.

 

I vehemently disagree with the premise of perfection as it’s a fool’s proclamation.  There isn’t a single business in this world that has employees who provide their product and services free from defect with infallible word selection.  Not one.

 

If a player is dense enough to think they can purchase a one shot wonder, they are the ones who diminish the quality of the game.

I guess you're getting your wish then kiddo, because WG is about as far from perfection as is literally possible.
