Well now we at least know why there has been no bug fixing for weeks / months. You have moved the resources elsewhere.

 

Everyone who thought 6.0 could not be topped, WG shows impressively that it is possible.

 

When u have a playerbase like Rocket League you can allow yourself such great jokes, with just 10k on the server you should maybe concentrate on your main game.


Critical comments on the game are now interpreted as Insults towards Wargaming Staff, lol. Its not my fault that the Shitstorm will never ends !

Google translator is my friend ;-)

Paingod did say they would be testing new ideas in the new mode.  Then some ideas might make into the core mode if they are well received. Similar to a ..............test server.

If that is the case, then the one part of which that could conceivably be redeeming, or worthy of our time, won't actually be implemented and thus every expectation which I have maintained up to this point as to the developers' incapacity to do much of anything, is correct. 

 

This, is your cue to naively tow the party-line by emphasizing how wondrous and how great an improvement the upcoming changes will constitute, such as you did before. Or, have you already forgotten the universality of what backlash the transition to v6.0 generated and how very opposite the reality of things then was, with respect to what you claimed? 

 

I look forward to seeing how well you shoot yourselves in the foot for a second time.

I'm extremely disappointed in the direction the dev team is taking with the game. From the sound of things, it sounds like they're going to spend more time and effort developing this new modern mode instead of actually working on the base game. A game mode with silly things like smoke grenades, true vision, and patch kits is not something I am interested in playing. Honestly think this update will rival the poor delivery of 6.0, if not surpass the fallout.

 

They don't have the resources to develop one game, let alone two.

 

Very well said. I share the same concerns and many more. The base game is why I play. More modern armor is of no interest. I was really hoping WG would take more time and spend dev time on quality of life improvements and working on community wants (comp game mode, more custom games options, tank balancing, etc). I am very disappointed with the direction the game is going at the moment. I know Minto is working hard to help us out, but it takes the entire staff to fix the wrongs of 6.0. Not just one person/team. :)

Similar to CoOp Scenarios in WoWS PC?

Im confused, will we still be able to play the game as it is today? tiers 3-10 wouldnt change? 

 

and then they are adding the new modern level with TV, smoke, and this will be in tiers 11+?

 

also - what is a patch kit, sounds like a the re-usable repair kit we have

The current game will remain the same.  They said popular features may be ported over down the road.
The new mode isn't tier 11+, it's functionally a separate game like commander mode, but using the same resources (silver, gold, xp)

Patch kit will actually replace some lost health.  We had a revolt when they tried to add that to the base game a couple years ago.

Is the player base large enough for another mode? And is it using the same currency economy? 

Currency/resources are common to all modes.
As for the player base, given that they said the response to True Vision was a pretty stark 50/50 split I am guessing this will split our player base accordingly.  Those who prefer the more realistic TV system will play the new mode.  Those who prefer the classic vision system will stay with the WW2 mode.

 

I'll be staying WW2.

50/50 on TV is being (extremely) generous.

I am going to give the new mode a fair shake.  If I have fun playing it, I will play it.  It is that simple.

Minto....please answer:

 

I would like to know that, if there are indeed seperate modes, would any XP earned, free XP or Commanders & XP carry over from our current game, to go with Modern? I would think Gold and Silver would? Or are we all starting from scratch...... from the bottom?

 

Going to be interesting.

I might have a fair degree of faith in the potential of this upcoming mode, if the developers themselves didn't have such an established track-record of botching the final execution in the worst of ways, or degrading the functionality of those mechanics which existed before, through arrogance, and a complete lack of reflection as to where the state of the game ought to be beyond their own misguided wants.

Good questions. I'd like to know a well. I don't think we're going to find anything out until next friday, as they stated thats when they would be allowed to freely talk about it.

I'll give it a go, I'm guessing it's not really aimed at players with an investment in the current game, though. Will be interesting to see if silver and gold will carry over, I'm assuming yes.

Pretty much my view as well.  I just know from many decades of tank games that the vision system is one of the keys that attracted and has kept me here.

Again Twitch wont work on an Xbox 1.

WOT admits nobody on the console side usesTwitch.

They get a couple hundred views.

Meanwhile they can't bother to post on the forum.

It's only the main source of information for hundreds of thousands of players.

I guess we are supposed to wait with are thumb up our......til we get something.

The fact they had to say "we aren't abandoning the core game" tells you everything you need to know about this new mode.

 

This is how they want WOT to look going forward, so they'll clearly throw resources at their 'vision' of the game and let the old mode wither away.

 

We are still desperate to get all the maps back in the game and see the functionality of pre 6.0 restored, but instead WGCB have been beavering away on a bunch of new supersized maps for their new project.

 

:angry:

 

Yeah it's so disappointing they seem absolutely determined to ignore and alienate the current playerbase. Please can we have all the content we had years ago that was removed?

 

No you can have a new gamemode that no one has asked for and will take up all our resources, oh and as a bonus new gamemode will have true vision.

 

Where do they think all these new players are coming from? Don't they get that this a niche product? Bring back all the old maps, plus some new ones and this game would thrive. Lots of players would return.

 

Bitterly disappointed

Yeah I'm getting it, new mode, try n' get some of the other tank games player base = £££ and 6.0 was all for a new game mode. Either way, it's bad for the game. They ain't gonna do two games, struggling at the moment as is. 

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