Howdy Tankers & Happy New Year!

We’re very sorry that today’s stream was canceled due to unforeseen technical difficulties, and we look forward to resuming our regularly scheduled programming next week! In the meantime, here are the notes of what we would have covered in today’s stream:

 

Last Two Weeks:

  • 32k people have completed the season pass for British Invasion so far!
  • 12 days of Tankmas had 858k redemptions and 50k players have completed all 12 days
  • Naughty or Nice random drops = 7.85 million
  • Santa Needs New Tracks had 360k stage completions and 50k at stage 4
  • Toy Tank Mode saw 1.166 million battles!
    • Stocking Stuffer random drop had 524k redemptions
  • Krampus 3D Commander was the hands-down favorite at 2:1 to Tactical Santa
  • Slay Bells Vasquez and Phantom of Falun bundle was #2 behind Krampus
  • Merry Tankmas free bundle had 119k redemptions
  • We released the Cold War British Lights and TDs on Tuesday, here are the 3 days of data so far:
    • 39,867 Battles played in the new Lights
    • 32,640 Battles played in the new TD
    • Win Rates are all currently all over 50% with the FV4005 Stage II ‘57 sitting at a 59% Win Rate. This is likely due to the early adopters being higher-skilled players.
    • Tanks Reforged for the Two UK TD lines have all improved by 1-2%

 

Next Week:

  • New Premium: FV4201/T95E1 CW British Heavy (see image)
  • Fixes:
    • Tech tree tank cards now properly show contracts in overtime
    • Fixed contract celebrations for tanks that are already owned
    • Fixed an issue in the HUD where the first ally destroyed would not update in the team bar
    • Fixed an issue where the Tusk would be seen instead of the Chisel on some contract screens
    • Fixed an issue in the HUD where APDS and HVAP ammo would display as APCR
  • WoT’s Happening This Week

 

Other Topics:

  • Community Tank Skin Poll yielded 1700 responses, Tier X and Era 3 won!
    • Look for a follow-up “Which Tanks” poll in the next couple of weeks (you’ll be able to find this in our discord!)
  • Radial Wheel Commands Poll yielded 305 responses and we learned the most used commands were:
    • Reloading!
    • Help!
    • Defend the base!
    • Great Shot!
  • Marks of Excellence: We did a data pull from September 2021-present and found that it's slightly easier for lights and mediums to achieve this with no real change in difficulty for Tank Destroyers, Arty, and Heavies
  • Next Tanks Reforged will be French Heavies Tiers IV and higher, looking at armor and gun improvements

 

  • We removed the New Player Efficacy on damage dealt just normal RNG
  • We reduced the New Player Efficacy on Penetration to within normal RNG +20/-7%
  • More information on this will come next week!

 

  • Light Tank usage in Cold War has been going down quite a bit according to recent stats. We expect this to improve in a couple of weeks after the recent Light Tank line release.
    • Era 1
      • Heavy Tanks: 0.37%
      • Medium Tanks: 68.20
      • Light Tanks: 14.67%
      • Tank Destroyers: 16.76%
    • Era 2
      • Heavy Tanks: 49.24%
      • Medium Tanks: 18.42%
      • Light Tanks: 29.66%
      • Tank Destroyers: 3.67%
    • Era 3
      • Heavy Tanks: 81.36%
      • Light Tanks: 18.64%
  • Wheeled Vehicles are going into the second round of super testing. We are still fixing some bugs and tuning them to get them right!

 

 

WoTConsole Twitch Streams - 1400 CDT (1900 UTC):

  • Friday, January 14, 2022 - Weekly Assault with PAINGOD & Tankz0rz

 

DISCLAIMER - These notes are translated to the best of my ability. As with the Update Preview Notes, these notes are subject to change. Complete and final notes will be made available prior to any update. 

 

Fight with Fury,

Modern

Deal more damage, recive less damage and pen more. What else? What other kind of bonus do selected players get? 

 

Why even bother about playing this game as usual when WG riggs RNG and with it the outcome of battles?

Settle down dude.... This is for new players for only the first 10 battles. They have enough handicaps already, so why make a fuss?

Kept an "In memoriam WoT Console" for a long time, but since recent updates the game is enjoyable yet again. And then they dropped 7.2....

They was doing it only YESMAN's and WGCB staff vigorous dismissed all attempts about this topic.

Rigging this game is the only way to survive for WGCB but funny part comes with people who actually was able see it and work around it.

Recently FV4211 became marshmallow, just for start. I can pen it almost every time but on the beginning that was hardly possible. It's just sad and pathetic.

Manipulation is manipulation, and with this a line is crossed and trust is broken. So who knows what else is manipulated.

I always called people tinfoil hats when they said WG is rigging games, untill WG admitted they do. 

 

Why not make a proper tutorial that teaches new players the basic game mechanics and let them fight their first battles against bots that get stronger? 

There is not a single reason to rig a match.

Christmas and New Year. Apparently they was too busy , every other game managed okay 

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

Very light on “what’s coming” next week.  Specifically is the French heavy rebalance coming this Tuesday?

 

If not, a new CW premium and a few fixes is pretty underwhelming.

No, they want you to part with your money / resources twice for the same thing.  Once for WW2 and then again for CW.

 

This is just another example of WG-centric (not player-centric) design.

 

No thanks.

It is worse then that. There is two centennials/ chieftain t95s in cw and ww2 mode. That is 4 tanks that are the same LOL. Quadruple dipping is just taking the mic.

Soooo of the limited/heavily curtailed list of comms wheel commands the most used commands were:

    Reloading!
    Help!
    Defend the base!
    Great Shot!


Any news/signs of the old messages such as 'defend this position' or 'fall back' (targeted at teammate) back?

So they won't fix the game that I play for hundreds of battles but they will make a tiny change to the first 10 battles someone plays where they ll do barely anything anyway, and a change they won't even notice? Priorities in the wrong place as usual.

(Forum wouldnt let me actually type anything, so here it is)

Once again proof that WG favours a small group of people on Discord and is perfectly happy putting polls on there for all of 305 people to respond to when what they claimed was the biggest part of the online community (the forum) has seen polls (posted by us) with thousands of people responding and yet they haven't been acknowledged at all, despite the topics of these being far more important than radial commands. And yet WG has never thought to put official proper polls on here. I remember you guys setting up an "Official Arty Chat" on here and that disappeared one day with nothing done and artillery still [edited]despite you guys promising to do something about it in the "first half of 2021". 

 

WG you are a [edited]disgrace. I hope the community liasons can pass this on to your idiot devs and whoever comes up with this rubbish.

Nice to know the Poll on what Tanks will get skins will be on Discord.

 

As I have stated in DM'a to TeeKanne, Australia & NZ will LOSE access to Discord by July 2022 due to new security legislation which is coming into effect NOW!

 

Oh, and here's something to pass onto your colleagues in the Sydney office.  This legislation is going to significantly impact businesses which are foreign managed and operate in Australia and NZ.
