Why is today's update 4.07 GB? 

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

Hopped back on to try it out.

 

1. Tech tree and garage look heinous - Probably one of the first things a new player does is go through the tech tree to figure out which line they want to do and its a total mess still...

2. In battle Hud is still bad as is the aiming reticle among other things.

3. Visual feedback in battle and the audio feedback (shot connecting etc.) are still terrible compared to the old version. I one hit killed a tank with my CGC and I couldn't even tell I hit him until the damage number popped up.

 

4. Brazil buffed but still has no AP or APCR [edited]

All my writing will be in crap cyan and orange until 6.0 is reverted.

Had to play 20 battles to see one of the two maps (vineyards) and still haven't seen highway. maybe raise the frequency these 2 maps appear? by now most people probably got bored playing the same maps anyway so it shouldn't be an issue. 

 

Since you are introducing only a couple maps at a time, why not make a 24/7 lobby with these maps just like a well known fps game does? just for the first week of introduction at least.

 

Also, it's been asked a few times but no answer: what happened to the trade-in event? any info on when it comes back?

Reticle flinch if hit - ok this horse**** needs to disappear. wthhas this come from? You’ll take a hit and suddenly your aiming reticle veers off at a 90 degree angle. If this is in response to criticism around the lack of feedback in-battle then that feedback has been addressed in exactly the same way as the “can we see a breakdown of XP” feedback was, ie totally missed the point.

On a related note, reloads being randomly reset when hit also needs to **** off.

 

Updated module grid - nope, still a mess. Not efficient and takes up too much space.


I aim to misbehave

Did the same thing after giving 6.0 a shot for a few days in late December. 

 

1. I was hoping the tech tree would have some changes/improvements by now. Also don't like how in some lines, they force you go research Tier X's that don't want. (ie. Obj 430 II line, they're forcing you to research K-91 first before Obj 430 and Obj 430U).

 

2. It's getting there, but battle HUD still needs a lot of work. Glad they brought red/green back and now able to move the mini map to the bottom right side. Things like reticle, targeted/6th sense icons are way too small. I read on a thread that they also made changes to text but it's still quite hard to read.

 

I also don't need a slot machine/sound anytime whenever I land a shot or gain XP. I know they're trying to turn this into a COD style game to appeal to newer players but I can't even think of any FPS game that does that.

 

3 Yup still hard to tell if I'm doing damage/critical hit unless I see the damage counter. I don't think they had this when the launched 6.0 so I'll give them credit. I know several PC players in the past commented how useful ribbons were so it would be nice to have it back.

 

Anyways, I didn't realize I've hit the 7 year mark and I appreciate that they still give out a week of premium. I don't think I'll ever get back to playing regularly but I'll keep an eye out on forums to see what other changes they make.

Colourblind-mode is now called Blue/Purple.... but in fact it's Green/Purple in-game. But I don't care how it's called as long as it works.

I tried out all the three colour-modes, and I can say that Red/Green is unfortunately too dark in game. The target indicator icons are still way too hard to see. Make them bigger, or make the black outline around the indicator thicker. Therefore Blue/Orange or Green/Purple are both better than Red/Green at the moment.

 

Again: Try to follow an enemy tank icon through vegetation with changing zoom factors while sitting 3m away from a television screen.

 

MVP screen with tank type is better than before. Good work.

Think the matchmaking is better now then what it have been for a long time regarding tiers.

One of the biggest reasson is probably that's not any 5 player pluton in the game and hope it stay this way with max 3 player plutons.

Because 5 player is 1/3 of a team and the impact with 5 players that are very good compare to 5 players that don't know how to play the game that match is already over before it even starts.

But you can make it up for 3 players that's very good compare to 3 players that don't know how to play the game, because it's only 1/5 of the team, which will lead to better gameplay experience.

Hope that 5 player plutons will permanently be history. 

 

For even better gameplay experience i would like to see limits to 2 arty and 3 light tanks from tier 6-10.

 

Keep up the good work WG and hope you working on the remake for maps like Live Oaks, Redshire, Erlenberg, Ghost Town, Overlord, Raseiniai, Thiepval Ridge, Airfield so we can experience them soon in the game again :)
