1. Introduce difficulty settings

     Easy : Facing tanks -2 -1 and = to your tanks tier

     Normal : Facing tanks -1 = and +1 to your tanks tier

     Hard : Facing tanks = +1 and +2 to your tanks tier

     Insane : All Enemy tank  +1 +2 to your tanks tier.

Have rewards scaled to the difficulty setting selected

 

2. Have the option to face tanks from random nations, or able to choose nation you're facing.

 

3 Introduce a Survival Mode on Random maps, where you are facing unending waves of enemy tanks, add an Ammo and Repair pickup at the end of each wave. Again, add a difficulty setting.

I think WS should be forgotten about really all it did was take away much of a dwindling player base. Maybe turn it into a tutorial that each new player has to pass before going into multi player? Give them a selection of tanks to try before going into the grind

I still like to play WS from time to time. Especially since I learned about the premium tank offers. In fact I may try them again this week, while there's nothing else to do here.

Yeah I wasn’t saying players don’t like WS I just think it took a lot of players from MP for a long time time.

Storyteller op gives rewards. If you haven't done it yet. Pretty sure someone has a list of the rewards. 

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm

That's bad news :( Could you guys at least modify Live Fire Excersice a bit? Suggestion: make secondary/bonus objective easier, now you have to keep at least 3 allies alive, make it so that 1 ally alive is enough. Currently it's very difficult or almost impossible to keep 3 allies alive if you play tier 8 vehicle with mediocre DPM and if your friendly bots are mainly light tanks and mediums. Also, you should also raise silver and xp income at least 20%, currently you can easily lose silver if you play tiers 9-10 (and even some tier 8 like T28 Proto), even if you have premium account, don't fire any premium rounds and complete secondary/bonus objective. This should be addressed, even if you don't want to further develop War Stories. Losing silver in War Stories not cool... :(

200 wins? Lol... it was much more, something crazy like 1500 wins if I remember correctly... and I've done it too :)

I saw the list once. It requires far too many wins to get to the good stuff. Maybe it was worthwhile back in the day, when I hear the game rewards were worth playing for.

That's a shame,  quite like to have a quick play through the stories sometimes when I've finished work and not really in the mood for MP, trouble is I tend to find them a bit too easy, a lot of the time you're facing tanks two or even three tiers down from yourself, I mean, last night I took the KV-220 out for a stroll and most of the opposition was tier II PzII's with the odd Leopard and PzIVA thrown in, it wasn't exactly a fair fight!

 

At present though, I think most people might only play them once for the goodies, the crews and the tank offers, adding a difficulty level or a horde mode might improve the replayability and give people more of an incentive to complete the storyteller missions.

So are they going to do away with that completely at some point?

If we are not going to update them anymore can we at least un-nerf the XP/Silver on them.  Some tanks as you grind a line just are flat painful to grind through and it would be nice to be able to just single-player-grind through them.  I know some would say that will lead to a bunch of inexperienced potatoes in tier X tanks, but to that I would just say, have you played this game lately?

Raibot can you at least adjust the silver . If you win and fire only standard ammo, you should still earn some silver. WS is a nice break to keep playing wot when teams are crap .
