Has anyone played enough battles today after the recent server restart to know if regular consumables are working fine now? Played handful of matches last night and first 2 games worked like a charm, then the usual not working after that. Kept trying the opening up the commander wheel to bypass as i read up here that sometimes works  - but to no avail

I honestly believe that an apology from WoT should be forthcoming. I'm not going to hold my breath.

I think they work if one module is damaged but don't work if you have multiple modules damaged.

10-4. I swear last night in a couple of games my engine deck would be the only thing damaged and i couldn't repair it. Appreciate the info. Do you know if they are going to eventually implement a way like in pre 6.0 of choosing which module you can repair if you had multiple ones damaged?

The lethal combination of horrible meta twinned with some B$ game mechanics...

When did it become popular on El Halluf for half of the team to just head down into the middle of the map?

That was the start of the game. The game ended for me when I went over a ridge to support a light which was engaging a medium. No problem 2 on 1, I’m a heavy, he’s a medium. Go over the ridge, where our light already is only to then discover that there are 3 additional red heavies just sat there. wthare these not highlighted on the map given that the light is practically right next to them?!

I aim to misbehave

Fixes will be meaningless without more maps.

Map fatigue will kill the player pop.

Played a game, minimap is alot better, thanks Minto. Can see better in-game, aiming reticle still needs work, hard to see sometimes, especially on certain maps. Should have played a game before I had a moan this morning. Games getting better, although still lots of work to do. It's a start though. Minto please get em to fix the aiming reticule.

That's why I posted about how I think they should reimburse players for wasted premium time while they've been running this... excrement display.

An apology would be good, yes, but an apology wedded to reimbursement of premium time would actually put some weight behind the words.


But honestly the longer it goes with no words of contrition, the more meaningless an apology would be. They clearly think they did nothing wrong.

Its funny, some of the fanboys here said " Dont be toxic, WG is listening" ..Yeah aha, did anyone ask for bigger stupid Chevron's? Or everyone asked to move back the tank info and health instead of the stupid Chevrons? WG NEVER listens. They pretend they do, but always do what they want. They can put all the lipstick they want on the pig. Its still will be a pig.

 

Funboys your turn now. Find them excuses again and tell us how you really like these new bigger Chevrons.

I don't know if it's me but it appears the "usual suspects" have been very subdued these last twenty-four hours or so.

Either their handlers have put them on a tighter leash or, perhaps even they are realizing what a massive clusterfudge they're being asked to defend?

Of course it'll be like buses; they'll all turn up at once now. :sceptic:

Ref Silver Issue

 

No Prem Fired either Game, No Consumables loaded. same tank (BC 12t).

Loss, Top Tier, survived, 1595 Dam, 684 Assist

- Silver, +14811 / +28368

Win, Bottom Tier, survived, 641 Dam, 1208 Assist (Less shots fired this game)

 - Silver, +16340 / +26841

 

No Prem Fired either Game, No Consumables loaded. new tank (Strv 103 ).

Win, Mid Tier, Survived, 1917 Dam, 24 Assist

- Silver +5279 / +19380

Loss, Mid Tier, Died, 1792 Dam, Assist 1140

- Silver +3727 / +17342

 

No Prem Fired either Game, No Consumables loaded. new tank (RU 251 ) Really don't like this tank

Loss, Top Tier, Died, 718 Dam (Set of Fire twice)

- Silver  -6207 / -293 (Kinda expected)

Win, Top Tier, Survived, 560 Dam, 84 Assist

- Silver +7194/ +15174

 

Finally, No Prem Fired either Game, No Consumables loaded. new tank (Mc Dragon)

Win, Top Tier, Survived (Just), 1887 Dam, 26 Assist

- Silver +50366 / +81795

Win, Top Tier, Survived, 3221 Dam, 404 Assist

"No Consumables loaded." <-- You're consciously handicapping yourself in-game just to make silver. Does that sound right to you?

 

Current silver economy is forcing you to omit a game mechanic that prolongs your life on the battlefield, i.e. the use of consumable kits. Spin it any way you want, this is not right. Game is turning into an actual pay to win scenario. Who can afford to drop 60K per game to use everything the game has to offer now? Prior to the downgrade you could run food, large consumable kits and still make money in any tank you played well (including tier X's). I would know, I was one of those players! Nowadays this is simply impossible. No matter how much damage you deal, you always lose money playing a fully equipped tank. Ridiculous!

That's what you took form it? You should be in politics they way you twist things to fit your own narrative.

 

1, It wouldn't make a difference anyway as I have so Many stockpiled.

2, I removed them because they don't work consistently (Technically, I run the McDragon with food, I removed it for consistency, and so I could say with 100% accuracy no consumables used, because thats what you do when trying to investigate something, remove as many variables as possible)

I didn't twist anything, that's literally what you said. You have highlighted that no prammo and consumables were used. Why? Because you know if you had used either, you would have lost money.

This wasn't a test to prove you can make money, it was to see/show what the earnings were. Yes, it may "prove" that using them will cost you silver, but thats not why I wasn't using them, thus twisting something to fit your narrative.

I have to agree with M4nTiX here. WG need to fix this. Just doesn't feel right and I have to ask. Is wg hoping players will buy silver in this new silver economy? Or if this is another amazing plan to level the playing field. Then why didn't they take the enhanced consumables out the game? That's why I'm pointing at using £££ to buy silver.

Then you, and Mantix missed the point of my post. And long with a lot of other people have a problem, you have such a hard on hate for V6.0 that when someone is showing, facts*, attempts to look at something objectively, instead of you seeing them as the moderates that they are, because you are so "right wing", those attempting to be moderates look like full liberal SJW's in your eyes (Sorry for the political analogy, it was the only thing coming to mind, I'm not saying I know what your political leanings are)

 

* Another example, people claiming there is only 5 maps in rotation. There is at least 12 (13 with the Xmas map), in rotation. Is that a good thing? Is it enough maps? No, not at all, it's something that needs to be address for certain. But stop with the Hyperbole.

 

Did I not put that something definitely seemed off with the Silver earnings for the TT tanks I played? Because I seem to recall that I did.

 

I have I not posted that the RNG is messed up, because I've done that as well (And ELI5'd it twice on reddit)

 

EDIT - Just found out there is 18 including Happy Holidays, though I haven't seen Mines
