well some stuff was made clear. Some stuff was actually revealed and at least one item was “possibly” teased. But I do wish a bit more info was provided. Even some quick screens of the new maps as they are in their dev cycle would have been nice. I understand the time issue of not providing anything, but some visuals would have been nice.

We get reminded that they base balancing on how players perform with them, so basically tanks with high skill-cap get nerfed all the time.

 

In his example about matchmaking I didnt need to imagine a tank that is so broken that it damages its tier. There is the Absolution, the Pz. V/IV, the Pz. B2, the Pz. 38H, the T1E6, among others.

I love these informative videos. Things i liked were Crossplay, Swedish Meds, Wheeled (Maybe not so much but new lines are welcome), 2 New Maps. I'm not a Clan guy but glad it's being looked at.
 
^ My feedback on the video
A suggestion was to do more, maybe every 3 months and i agree, it would be nice to see (or even every 4-6 months).

:unsure:

Swedish Mediums are almost here. Wheelie Bois with a year’s time.  Crossplay won’t include 360, but XB/PS cross-platoons will be possible.  2 new maps this year with more in development.  There’s a large balance pass in the works, but they’re trying to carefully consider all the new information from all the MM/RNG tests as well as juxtaposing that data against MM scenarios and player feedback.... personally I prefer the more careful approach than the “here, let’s see if this works” approach.

 

It was also confirmed that they’re ready to seriously consider new Clan features that matter.

Why was the T-29 given out not once, but twice? This is the epitome of laziness and scummy reskinning.

A quarterly report just like this vid would be great.

Just to give a simple progress report and let the customer base know what's happening. Wish there was some mention of the lag issue, but overall encouraging.

Yeah, roadmaps are always nice and while most is, "we're looking into this", at least it's a start on what to expect.

Much ado about nothing. 
 

“We’re working on ____ “ is about the most useful information this video actually contains. It’s so broad and vague it’s painful. 
 

I can summarize your video in “stuff is coming” and that’s actually quite sad. The community already knew maps were coming eventually, already knew Swedish mediums were coming eventually, already knew that tank balance would be looked at eventually, already knew cross play was be looked at eventually.... and so on and on. The most relevant new information was that wheeled tanks were actually being brought over. The “soon” schtick is worn out. A community supporting your game for 6 years expects more concrete information. 


#ConsoleTax

Why do the Defender and Patriot have higher costs on Console than they do PC?

Well, that is simple. The answer is because World of Tanks PC is a different game than World of Tanks Console. And their tanks are not always the same as our tanks even though they might look the same, the stats are sometimes different, the costs are sometimes different. So… uh.. You can’t ever, for anything whether it’s… uh… the maps, the gameplay, the costs of the tank, the look of the tank, the stats of the tank, anything like that. You can never compare the two. The only thing that they really have in common is that they are both made by Wargaming, they both have the name World of Tanks, and they both have tanks in them. So that’s uh… the reason.

I agree with you on the slow but steady approach.  I would say they did not answer all the questions, but a good start for the beginning of the year. No, not everyone will be happy and I am sure the toxic ones will be jumping on soon.  WG gave us more than they have in a long time and it does seem the know the issues and will slowly be trying to work on them.  I think cross play will be a huge plus for the game and will help it improve playing a lot...  Some of the other things talked about, sounded good to me as well.  Yes, I know it has not all been fix and will take time to fix everything, if that is even possible.  However, I do think it was a good start for them and hopefully, it continues as they move forward..  Just my opinion..

 

Thanks WG for the video..:)

I was hoping for a 4.13 preview... oh well, i guess i’ll have to accept the same ‘stuff is coming’ as we have had the last year.

I want to thank everyone at war gaming for all your hard work.  Great video! 
 It did leave me with some questions and thoughts . 
 Strum tiger on track event wasn’t mentioned sadly :arta: :teethhappy:


 since wheeled vehicles have been confirmed now ( one reason I play on console so often is no Ferraris zooming around) is there any plans to reinstate some of the old packages on older tech tree tanks ? Example M-37, M-41 , 59-16 , MT-25 Etc...   to compete with them . 
 

I would recommend everyone involved in their implementation to log in a sheriff account and play them . Lights on console are all ready the easiest class to play and wheeled vehicles are much easier to perform in.  


I'm excited to see the clan improvements  & the matchmaker is being carefully changed . Hopefully now platoons won’t be penalized as harshly. 
 

new maps!!! Heck yeah ! Nuff said 

 

Swedish mediums will come after the Leo I’m assuming? Any information on the experience required to unlock the first one? 
 

April fools is a great tease . Looking forwards to it . 
 

and lastly cross play. Sounds like it’s coming to fruition.  Will there be options to either enable or disable this feature like in wows legend's?

Pointing out the non-informations in this video (Swedish Meds were announced last October) doesnt make it a toxic comment. The video missed a great opportunity and no actual changes.

Guess they wont care much about that even when new console generation hit the shelves.

Sad.
