Hello tankers,

 

I will be recording a developer's round table to show during Extra Life and I would like to get questions from the community to ask the development team.  The questions should come with a focus on everything we have done in game this past year.  Tank bowl, Earn Ops, Mercenary tanks, Maps - old and new, and game features!  This is a Q&A to go down memory lane 2018!

 

Who will be in the round-table?

 

Jeff Gregg - Lead Game Designer

Geoff Haines - Lead Gameplay Software Engineer

Gabe Bott - Lead Artist

Nick Guida - Senior Gameplay Designer

Darold Higa - Producer

Leo Flores - Senior Game Designer

Daniel Pinch - Game Designer

 

Please leave your questions, but please note:

Rude and or aggressive questions will not be tolerated or considered

Out of respect to other players and due to the limited time, one question per player

If you ask more than one question, I will not add it to the list! This is just courtesy to allow time for other questions to be asked.

I’m going to ask a question which has gone without an answer(beyond, “we’ll look into it”. ) for years:

Where are all the Clan features??

Hello.

 

My question is: will we able to get the big HQ update like PC on console in the near future? I am watching videos of pc version and their graphic looks so amazing! I feel like we play Tomb Raider 1 on PS1 and they play The Rise of The Tomb Raider for PS4 lol...

 

PS: sorry for my weird English, native German speaker here.

 

*edit* Again sorry, this thread was about 2018 and my qurstion seems to be more like a "2019" question. sorry for offtopic.

Can we get an ELC line for the French Tech Tree? There are enough historical tanks to do it and it would make the PC crowd very envious (Also, I miss my "tier 6" AMX ELC).

Can you talk about your decision to not retire tanks from the game. There are some of us who would like you to reconsider this so that we stay close to the PC tech tree.

Will players at some point be involved in the balancing process? The last update left a lot of players with a bitter taste about the changes especially when changes are made that go against the reason why players choose to grind a line to begin with (STB-1 dpm nerf that got later reverted comes to my mind).

Why did you not release tiger 217 in September like you claimed you were going to, and then why didn’t you tell us you were changing it. A lot of people were looking forward to this tank and hero crew, a little communication with your customers could go a long way.

I would like to know why the alt French heavy line has not been added yet? I believe this was supposed to come waaay before any new Russians were added.

Is there a process towards selecting maps that go into the rotation or does the team just grab a handful at random?

 

Have always been curious about how that goes.

When will the amx 30b be changed back or have the improved reload?? You've essentially made it worse in the last update. The extra turret armour is to thin to be worth anything, plus there is a huge cupola on the roof, and now the gun is worthless. You achieved your goal of making it different to the leopard 1 by making the tank un-competitive.

Why not do a ranked platoon battles 7v7 if you can't pull that off then 5v5 or what not that way clans (or friends not necessarily in a clan) could  join together and have a go all in good fun. i would suggest two separate leagues or run them a different times.

First of let me say the new ops are actually amazing, the 20x wins, the 150 consumables and the 1m silver. Please give us more of these, they actually make me want to play the game more.

So my question is on the war chests. In my opinion they are a good idea. I vowed to stop spending money on this game a while back but I was going to buy some war chest because of one specific reason. In the original portal post you stated you were giving the gold equivalent for duplicate premiums. For a player like me who has many premiums it ends up been better value for me to buy war chests to obtain gold rather then buying gold packs. This is how the pc loot boxes worked too which leads me onto the question:

Why did you change the war chest from giving gold equivalent to silver equivalent, you've ruined them?!??

P.S Please buff amx 30b :)

 

the question are too long.  Please simplify them or I won’t be able to ask them.

Is there any hope for cross play between Xbox and PS4?

 

What about Xbox and PC?

 

Are there any plans for a regular Clan competition?

Since update 4.5 we're forced to watch our tanks in Mercenaries themed jungle garage, which some of us (like me) don't like. Any change in future we could choose/toggle between "jungle garage" and "old miltary hangar garage" or maeby give us even more themed garage options?

My questions are:

Now we earn free gold from the war chest. Will be this year coming OP's where we can earn free gold like PC.

 

Are we getting clanwars, battle royale or the coins where we can buy or upgrade things from tanks.

 

Will we get the same mission like on PC where we can get premium tanks.

(finish 1st mission u get a engine, finish 2nd mission and u get a turret, and so on. When u have all parts u earn a tank like T-55A)

 

Can we get more zoom in and out on snipermode and driving mode like PC (put it into options where u can join what view zoom u whant)

 

Thx greatings
