Some have more access than others. Anyone without a premium account would have to run at a silver deficit trying to keep their tanks competitive. #Pay2win

 

The so called competitive modes are the only avenues that are fair but they don't track your stats, this makes them casual modes. 

 

Not wanting a rebalance is a clear sign that you want to have an unfair advantage over others. That makes you a cheater.

 

So now anyone that doesn't want to follow your Amish Tanking lifestyle is cheating.

 

It's fine if not using repair kits, premium ammo, or fire extinguishers gives you some kind of feeling of being a superior player. But nobody's cheating using things that everyone can use. It's even less pay to win than it used to be, since they've given out so many premium tanks over the years. Everyone can afford to shoot premium because they can drive the free premiums to get silver. It's made premium use common. WG isn't going to take those tanks away, so premium use is here to stay.


WG lied about keeping special skills.  WG made my many extra trained crews useless.  WG can't expect me to support their product unless they fix this.

A rebalance for various standard rounds to have better pen, sure. Nerfing prammo with a damage reduction has already been tried on PC, and the conclusion was that it was the wrong way to go about it.

IF you really want a premium nerf, why not put a cap on the amount a player can load per game, say 10-15 rounds for light and medium calibre guns (I'm including 130mm here), something fitting for tanks like the dreadnought (maybe 4 or 5), 2 clips for autoloading non-tds, 0 for artillery (it's just a class that doesn't need it and AP/HEAT should be nerfed standard anyway), and TDs themselves would need a case-by-case (5 for the E4/E3)with buffs to the standard. 

The reason is simple: reducing the amount carried means that players have to decide when to use their rounds and will need to aim their shots better to guarantee they don't waste an important shot. This separates the lol full prem-spam idiots from actually good players because one will dump their rounds into a soft target then die and the other will switch when needed and make good use of it.

Of course, It's cute that you think premium usage makes us cheaters.

Most of the time their standard would've penned anyway or it's some player whose only hope of doing damage in the situation is using prem because his standard rounds have been powercrept to worthlessness. so a hard limit would work fine, unless your goal is not to limit the amount of prem fired but to make it so other tanks are near-ineffective against heavies and super-heavies? Then that would give rise to a very slow and boring heavy meta filled with arty and a sprinkling of TDs.

Not that you'd know this but if you pen your premium rounds and a few standard you often make silver in tech tree tanks, not lose it. The trade-off for firing prem is that you sacrifice a little bit of silver for more XP since you can reliably hurt things that would otherwise have free-farmed a flank (279e). But I'm sure all those reward tanks are p2w cheaters too right?

For a lot of high blue to light purple players, prem ammo (and OP seal clubbing tanks) is what is getting them the 100-200 extra wn8 to be unicum. I personally spam prem because I have the silver and it's just sitting around so might as well. It reduces RNG's effect on the game, a standard round might low roll pen to bounce off of a weakspot, I prefer the extra shell velocity of apcr prem, and I play in competitive leagues where it's only prem ammo being shot and I'm too lazy to change my loadouts

I spam apcr on certain tanks because I prefer the better muzzle velocity. I think increasing the muzzle velocity on standard rounds would be a great move.

 

If I good get wargaming to work on one thing it would be far larger pool of maps in rotation. 30 maps in constant rotation would be awesome.

 

I remember reading on the forum that during a developer Q and A one of the developers said there's a system in place that means you're more likely to get a big open map in a heavy, small corridor map in a medium. I hope that forumer was just trolling, but if so removing that would be first priority.

 

I've certainly had that experience when I've not seen Westfield in a month, pick a slow heavy I've not played in ages and boom heres Westfield

Reminds me of when mercenaries came out and there were something like a hundred maps (variants included) stuffed into rotation. I personally like having one or two variants of maps like Malinovka and arctic region but for now WG should focus on a rotation that has more popular maps while they rework the rest (which they seem to currently be doing to ghost town and others). The map weighting right now seems to love sunset coast, Arctic region and Abbey a bit too much.

Cool I was just thinking of you played mainly heavies that would explain your dislike of premium spam. It just makes a lot of tanks guns more reliable. Plus there are quite a few maps where flanking to get side shots on tanks may not always be possible.

 

One thing to look at after every game is how many shots did you hit but not pen? Granted some will be fully aimed shots that suddenly dipped or flew up into a better armoured spot but if you could have got 5 more pens by firing some premium rounds would that have had an effect on the game?

Seriously people are more interested in how a game looks than how it plays?. 

It could be a 4k 60 fps Beauty of a game but with the shite balancing of tanks people would soon get bored again, or come on here to complain a tank is OP.

Any links or proof to back up that tin foil hat theory?. 

I'd certainly be interested to see proof they purposefully dump you on a set type of map.

Reminds me of the time someone told me they'd read an official WG statement that CC's get improved RNG. Funnily enough they couldn't find proof for that.

 

I'd say what you read was somebody trolling or pulling your leg.

I genuinely hope so.

 

I mean wargaming wouldn't do something that stupid would they? I ticked the map graphics section as more maps\ better map rotation is more important to me atm. I genuinely believe that would do wonders for the game.

 

Watched one of your review videos recently nice format.

Apparently it's something to do with available memory. They can only have x amount in rotation and have to remove maps to add others which is seriously lame.

 

Perhaps there should be an upgrade wargaming servers option to tick!

That's raher odd though, as initially they claimed to not be able to go over 50GB due to MS restrictions. Then they stated this limitation had been removed, and we saw a max of about 75GB at one point in February, with that being compressed down to 70GB, and them removing maps from the game itself (not just MM rotation) presumably for rework (I think Ensk, Ghost town, and Province are going to be done first). Community map is in like it's 3rd iteration now too so that'll see a release soon after public testing.

There should be a question about Commander mode needing to exist at all?

Because it doesn't.

There's some seriously precious development time going in to waste in that mode.
