is it not about time that someone from WG tells us why they did what they did..

what was the reason for a whole new game instead of the new maps players wanted.

and why was something so bad and broken released in the first place and not released untill it at least worked 

..

a lot of the frustration is down the the fact they say nothing and no-one knows why they just ruined everything?

It would be  nice to find out,    but I doubt we will.     

 

The  constant premium tank rewards and other events  ever since kind of makes a statement of how well the update has gone.


                 This game needs More than a premium M3 Lee

 

I refuse to add one of those WN8 sigs as requested,   I have not played WoTc since  14th Dec 2020.   The new game is bad,   I played a few games  on the 15th Dec 2020 and haven't played since.

I thought that they had?

 

The old UI code was apparently very restrictive and difficult to changed/ add features to, so they had to get a new one completely re-written, so that they could add features "we" request further down the line. And being that it was getting re-written, they took the opportunity to do changes that they thought we would like?

Just waiting for the permanent +/-1 announcement. That’ll be their tacit admission of failure and dire straits.

ok but how did they get the STORE  right but mess everything else up ????

the fact the store is the same and the only part of the new game that works still makes no sense since they messed everything else up ???

so they clearly had no problem rewriting that part of the old game so the rest should of been just the same ??

 

still can't fathom why they would release such a badly bugged broken game when it wasn't needed or asked for by anyone?

plus they have already added and removed maps, added new war stories and mercs.  so they have done it to the old game.

They've basically dumbed down the entire game,to what is now a glorified  ''run & gun'' arcade game.With the introduction of modern tanks on the way,the influx of little ''johhny's" spending their parents cash will make WGC a fortune!! It's a shame,but that's how it is.:mellow:

They'll probably add tank respawn's,a battle royale mode & have our commanders doing taunt dances in 7.0:P

Respawns would be fun. A team death match with tanks? Count me in.

In which parallel universe would a meeting sign off on changing the in game icons from green/red to whatever shade the new mess was called?

Green/Red is fairy universal. Traffic lights for example! And purple (i'm not colourblind) but seemed to work fine too.

So not only did some strange soul think it was worth changing, but no doubt a whole meeting enthusiastically agreed.

How? Just how!

If i was to hazard a guess i'd say they wanted a big xmas update, so they released this unfinished pile of ...

Overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer.

Really didn't think about the new perks effects on Arty did you?

They changed WoT to CoT, aiming for a new playerbase imo...

One thing that seems to be common with companies is - Never apologize, Never explain the changes, Deflect, and Stay the Course.

 

I've seen the same out of a couple other game companies over the years when they make illogical, off the wall changes, or do not release much if any of the game they promoted.

My theory is that they wouldn’t get a Christmas bonus if they didn’t roll the update out before they went on holiday break. So they rushed it out and planned to fix any problems when they got back. But there have been a LOT more problems that they expected. 

I don’t know how to act my age! I’ve never been this old before!
