Good Day Fellow Tankers...well actually it is not a good day!!

3 absolutely ridiculous tanks enter the game that have no place at all ! And I was angry when the manga tanks came out? That was nothing compared to how I feel about this tosh.

 

^ pretty much ^

When it comes to tanks that where concepts and blueprints, they belong in the game, the Chinese Td line is just made up, but at least they are designed in a way that makes them believeable.

The Merc" tanks" are just silly, and this last batch, is beyond stupid.

I do suspect that the rise in number of players had something to do with there being several very good ops that made players put in time and effort.

 

I completely agree with you on this.

It is just what to expect it is like to treat or learn a dog to not eat chocolate or unions they cant but they try anyway.

 

I dont get why this was thought as a good idea but i know what i feel about it and that is a big NO.

And on the flip side I have seen tons of IS-M, 705, 430U's, 257's, i.e. real TT tanks.

These last Merc"Tanks", dont create any exitement, when they released the "Trininty", people was saying "WTH is THAT".

 

 

The Trinity peaked my interest as I was pretty sure I knew how the tank would behave and was the first merc tank I thought about owning. I like the art direction behind the Mk2 which is slightly different than the regular merc TT line and more subdued than the Outcast release. An added plus was Sonic's backstory gave me an excuse to throw Italian onto a crew voice. Then the Sharpshooter came along, which might be the finest tank in the game for my play style where the 4202P is just a little short on punch, and the Chieftain is a little slow on the reverse without the camo rating to fall back on. The Sharpshooter took the best of each tank and combined them. 

 

I get that some don't like some of the mercs, and others don't like any of them. There are a bunch I have zero interest in but I won't begrudge anyone for purchasing or grinding. I am glad there's a new relatively unique good looking tank that came along I really enjoy as I've played all the lines I'm interested in.

Tbh I personally like the primo Victoria. Sure it was a band, but they sung about history/war, so it kinda was justified, and they didn’t make the tank look god awful.

 

As for the edelweiss/nameless, I played the first VC game and enjoyed it, so getting to play the tank again in my favorite game kinda felt nostalgic to me. I also was genuinely curious to see how that tank could’ve hypothetically stacked up against tanks of history.

 

now regarding these three awful looking tanks, just no :facepalm: I’d be embarrassed to be driving those, and I hope they are the last.

The fact I have rarely seen these new cartoon tanks and less and less mercenary tanks shows how wrong WG are here.

I play game for realistic tanks and if I want made up tanks I can play crossout or something

As of today there's been a total of 684 games played between the 3 tanks on both Xbox and PS4 combined. People don't want these abominations.

Like i have said before i am sure that someone are positive about the Merc "Tanks", but i do believe that they are the minority.

Another indication of this is when you look on 2 threads on this forum, the "How are your Brotherhood of glory ops going" that has 3 pages:1978 wievs: and 51 replies.

This thread has 12 pages:11642 wievs and 229 replies which for the most part is negative.

These threads started on the same date.

A good idea for a company is to produce content and products that the majority really wants, not to please a small minority and overlook or anger the majority of its customers.

Just bumping this tread, to suggest that anyone that has written comments here should check out Retro Jules latest video, where he mentions wargamings response.

For those who don't have the time, WG's response was "We have seen the video and are adding it to feedback received for further evaluation on what the community wants."

So basically "We saw that you sent us a video but completely ignored any and all criticism, then decided to continue to our yolo to bankruptcy instead of making even the slightest of positive changes."
