Message from PAINGOD:

 

Hey Everyone,

I'm very happy to be able to tell you that adding the tank name and gamertag over the targeted tank was able to make it in to tomorrow's release.  As always thanks for your patience with these updates, the team's been working really hard to get them to you.
- PAINGOD

 

PPS.

  • Tank name and Gamertag have been added to the floating tank icon in the HUD.
  • Fixed the price display issue when transferring Commanders on dual-nation tanks.

Minto when will they bring back the 51 maps they removed, the current rotation makes the game unplayable and extremely boring, only 2 more maps to the current rotation is insufficient, it doesn't matter at all that the old maps are not in HD we just want more diversity.

new update and the most important errors remain unrepaired. not a single word from such small squads. tankers from the same platoon are not seen in the game. the enemy information will not be seen when focused. it seems that their cognitive abilities do not allow them to make several changes at the same time. they only fix new @##@#that appear after each update

I'm just watching the stream right now and it looks like they're working on adding tank info above the tanks again which is great. One thing I'd like to suggest is that the exact HP needs to be displayed rather than just a HP bar. Also, it all looks rather messy. I appreciate this may be due to it being a work in progress but thought I'd mention it.

It would be really useful if this information was displayed all the time like before 6.0 rather than having to aim over a tank to get the information.

Also, if the above is added, the enhanced target info box isnt needed as it just adds clutter to the screen.

Many thanks!

The maps and fixing the errors are not the priority, we see each update but to give you warnings by private messages if they have time. scoundrels

You know what is pretty funny?  I had filed a trouble ticket (bug report) with support about the purchase from preview problem.  I have been going back and forth with Support & they still cannot understand what I am trying to explain to them.  Msged them today telling them that the fix for the issue is rolling out tomorrow.  doh...

They are not ashamed. They pretend nothing is happening to me that they removed for a free software 150000xp error. I made the claim with a ticket and they don't give a solution. Neither forum administrators, game developers, "community representatives" (they do not represent anyone) wrote to me for a solution. that if, to threaten me by private message with a "strike" they have time.

I just saw the news that targeted tanks will now have GT and HP back to center! Chipping away at those fixes, thanks. Now please see fit to squeeze in more than 2 maps when the next version update comes.... seriously... 2 isn’t enough when we’ve only had 17 maps to play for the whole update.

The team is still working on

  • Additional colorblind modes

 

As far as I can tell for me anyway there is no colourblind mode in the game, so how can they be working on additional colourblind modes. Being shafted by the dev team.

Can Red/Green colorblind people see the Orange/Blue option? If so that would be considered a colorblind option.
