  • No patch kits in WWII. Please don't change core game mechanics.
  • Double barreled tanks are exciting, wheelie boys less exciting.

Running a poll on Discord to test the waters... It's 64 to 13 in favor of not adding them after 2 minutes. It's not going to happen :teethhappy:

Fictional Tanks are bound to happen though, Tanks like the Waffle but i started to notice when Chinese TD's got added as Paper Designs.

Personally I don’t want to see them in WW2 . Any news about the bots using smoke in coop mode? Seems it’s ok you can’t see them and I (dunno about everyone else) blind shot and always bounce, I’ve never penned whilst blind shooting, even thou it’s right in front of me , Except they always pen with every shot whilst using them? I’ve noticed if you face hug it’s easier and the only way round the issue.

I'd say there's a strong difference between engineer drafts/prototypes with existing tech, compared to something from a cartoon like valkyria tanks. While they don't really do any harm I can see where people are coming from when it ruffles feathers. 

There are some that want the Halo tank in game which to me is a bit ridiculous, just play Halo lol.

 

Big no to patch kits here, the community has addressed this many years a go when it was previously brought up by the Devs. The fact this is being talked about when there still is no  kill counter in the in battle UI adds yet more ammunition to the many voices saying that priorities are extremely misplaced by WGCB.

Could you please run those polls here on forums too? For people like me that are not using Discord or other channels...  ;)

Heilbronn and Dukla pass are meh maps at best, not too excited for them.

As far as upcoming tank mechanics, are you guys ever going to implement the special reloading mechanic for the already butchered Italian heavy tanks? So we at least dont get screwed with a ridiculously long reload if we have to fire a round just before we finish the previous shell?

No to patch kits in WWII. I myself am indifferent but the community really does not favor this so I am voting with them.

 

CW medals - at least the base Top Gun, High Caliber, Steel Wall, etc. Not sure why those could not have been included in the CW release initially. Most of the WWII ones carry over.

patch kits shouldn’t actually be getting talked about. Don’t even get why WG mentioned them and WW2 mode together?  Never mind a poll on whatever social media site . Seems WG have short memories. It shouldn’t even be up for decision . Never mind a poll.

Does this mean the M3 Grant/Lee will be able to fire both her 75mm and 37mm guns?

This would make me very happy!

No to WWII patch kits thank you very much.

Curious about multi turreted tanks. Japanese and low tier? M3 Lee kindof qualifies.
