Will there be article about balance changes? I want to know what was changed in those 5 tanks. Also, I'd like to know more about map tier changes... are there now more maps available for lower tiers or higher tiers? Were Mines and Port tier-restrictions removed or what was changed?

My Fix Wish List: IMO

 

  • Commander Equipped, warn me or don't let me go into battle without a Commander Equipped.

 

  • Silver Costs, things cost more with equipment and unlocking tanks so we need to keep Consumables cheaper or boost silver earnings.

 

  • Command Wheel Chat Update, add more commands back: Request Fire At, Follow Me, I'll Help, Attacking Target, Flank Left, Flank Right, Capture the Base, Advance Forward, I'm Stuck Help, Ready to Fire, Cover Me, Need a Target, Defend this Position.

 

  • Available OPs tab, get it sorted out.  Keep unfinished OPs at the top & completed OPs at the bottom.

 

  • If a tanks spotted anywhere on the map show the tanks: Health, Tanks Name, Players Name, Tank Outline & Type Tank on at all times.  Not just when you look or aim at them. Like the PC version.  Bigger more visible cross-hairs (x), so when your zoomed out you can see where your shooting easier. The update helped but it could be better.

 

  • Show '6th Sense' and 'Targeted' in the high center of the HUD, like the Bigger Bolder old version HUD.    

 

  • Make reloading time larger, like the old hud or PC hud.

 

  • Bigger team icons in the team line up (at the top of the screen).

 

  • Bigger bolder outline of tanks, & when spotted show the outlined tank and tank details.

 

  • Bigger more visible font text in general (in the garage, in battle, on map screen and end battle screen).

 

  • Color blind mode, the blue is too dark & the text on the map screen is harder to read.

 

  • MVP Screen, tell us the 'Tank Name' by the tank image: IS-3, IS-7, Tiger II

 

  • Make moving crews easier & faster showing the original tank first and that nations tanks first too.

 

  • Tech tree is more confusing now moving in all directions vs the better (old layout) being able to see and understand the whole tree visually.

 

  • Big Map view, show the teams on each side of the map with the Player Names (like the OLD version) with a bigger font. We don't need to hit the 'select' button a 2nd time just to see the players names and again to get back the the large map view.

 

  • End game Scoreboard screen, there is no view "Gamer Service Record" anymore.  Please add that back.

 

  • End game scoreboard is missing the battle stats results of each player with details: which tanks were damaged, killed, spotted, assist damage etc. Bring it back. (like the old version)

 

  • End game Scoreboard screen, show the Tiers by each tank.

 

  • End game screen is missing the time & date stamps of when the battles happened.

 

  • Bring back all the maps, the map rotation is getting sickning seeing the same maps; Abby, South Coast, Fisherman's Bay etc.

 

  • Bring back the 5 man platoons.

Whats with the tank sales lately? Seems to be more and more? And weekend sales as well? 

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

- I think this is better.  You can play a stock tank,  equip it,  improve it and play it.  You can make it even better by adding a Commander,  but you don't have to.

- Consumables stay at rabated price

-Agree. Wheel could need a STFU too, for those who think they are the commander of the whole team

-Agree. Tech tree is confusing

-Agree. 2 new maps help, but more should be soon to come

-Some want 5, some 4. Some 3. Noone's happy.

Hi MV.

Could you please explain this community what balance changes are approved for tanks?

In which slot people can put Rollover skill? 

All 9 are full, and we not see any adjustments to the amount of gold you asking for swap. 

Not everything is bad here but your employer has no even ounce of shame. 

What is sad many people don't even realise what you doing. That is one of the reasons why you WGCB flip this game. Greed has short legs.

Not sure I agree that "adding maps to more tiers" increases variety (unless you only play one tier).  Only adding maps increases variety and even with the 2 "new" maps coming in this update, we are still well down on the selection we had on 14th December.  Hopefully this change doesn't mean we'll have Tier 8-10 playing Mines, or Tier 3-5 playing Sand River.  The tier range is there for a reason!

 

It would be much better if you addressed the core issue, rather than trying to make it appear as though there are more maps, when there aren't.

What are the balance changes going to be? Hope my premium tanks wont be getting nerfed. 

Also after all the community has been asking for, Paingod gets his idea put in based on whos opinion? His own? Thats what the stream sounded like. "Oh i get flipped all the time in my light tanks so lets put a new skill in for that". Shame you dont play the game "all the time", even half the time would make you see the multitude of problems with this game that need fixing more than the bloody flip time. How about just not flipping your tank or sorting the physics out so tanks dont behave like paper planes at high speeds? But what do i know im just another member of this community whos opinions fall on deaf ears again and again.
