I am disappointed in the new callout choices.  They seem like things 8 year-olds would want to say in a game.  For those who are actually trying to play together as teams without mics, there are much more important things to communicate.  For example, "cover me," or "I'll spot for you," or "I'm following you," or "I'm moving to the flank."  There are many more possibilities than 5 new choices for affirming your teammates and one to apologize (although the last could be useful).

In the ops section what does it mean - Must be active as the battle ends.

The ribbons do not make a sound any longer.  Is this on purpose?  Can we have an option to turn it on?

You have to activate them with the "A" button, you may only have 3 active at one time.

overall im loving the update.

 

 

  1. pretty neat, shame they are restricted to X amount per account though :-(
  2. cool, getting used to it still
  3. eh, not fussed either way, i generally look at my profile on here to track how im doing (side note its not updating to show the tanks i've got today )
  4. Awesome stuff, however it isnt awarding me some of the achievements i already completed, most annoying one being owing a tier X tank. its sitting in my garage staring at me, i know i have it XD
  5. love them.

OK, that makes sense.  Ya think I'd been able to figure that one out.  Thanks!!  :great:

Another stupid question:  It says detect 5 tanks in a T71.  I've gotten the detected check mark for more than 5, but it's not moving the bar.  Do they actually need to be spotted and hit?

 

Got both answered by guess what?  Reading the info posted on the portal.  As my wife would say "typical male"  never read maps or check for instructions.  LOL  :ohmy:

Mostly seems nice, some of the new callouts could be made more useful, maybe roll awesome/great shot into one and create another slightly more useful one.

 

Also having so many of the OPs for one specific tank is not quite so handy, pehaps restrict to class as opposed to single tanks?

My first post--a couple things, overall I've been really enjoying this game. However, a few of these changes are ABSOLUTELY intolerable. The biggest thing I noticed instantly was the super-loud flames burning tanks after they're blown up. Not a big problem.

THE PROBLEM!! The spotting delay time has been changed to about 5 seconds instead of 2-3. It ruins the scouting abilities now as you can't stick your head over a hill anymore and wait to let your binoculars to kick in with time to back out if you're spotting. Instead, you stick your head over the hill, wait... suddenly you're getting hit from all directions as you frantically back up you get detected once you're behind the hill. REALLY???

 

Incidentally, way to go with the Tier X achievement. I've been enjoying this game, almost had my 5 skills achievement, and then you throw in a super grindy one like that. I have a job, and lots of other things to do, the amount of time to research a Tier X is enormous, unless I want to throw hundreds of dollars at the game.

 

   I'm very annoyed in case you couldn't tell.

 

   Thanks for the fun experience so far, but probably goodbye soon. Scouting was always my favorite plan, now it's almost impossible.

Well it is certainly not working for me at all.  A few friends and I were in a platoon and it is not working for them either.  BTW I deleted the game and cleared my cache before I ran the update before you ask. :)

"Changed the Functionality of "The 122 and U" achievement to no longer require ownership of the T-150":

 

Still reading that the T-150 is required. 

 

Others not mentioned:

Research a Tier X - Not awarding.

 

Battle ribbon award sound:

No sound now liked the silver jiggling.

 

Still missing the sound of tanks scraping each other and have never received a reply as to why it was removed.

 

Web portal service record not updating today.

 

Ops tab placement takes to much time to get to since the tabs on either side must load first and take a seemingly long time to do so. It does not glide from one to the next in a fluid manner.

 

Forcing a rebuy of the M4-E2-E8 to get the Sherminator is and a rebuy of the KV-1-2 and 1S to get these Achievements for those of us who already have been through them is a not right/fair or cost effective for the players. This is not the way to keep your player base in my opinion.

 

I like the new commands and the garage features. Malinovka Assault improvement is a fail but, a good try and shows that players are being listened to so far as this map and mode go

Still reading that the T-150 is required.  Note: Also seeing this on the Achievement page on XBL - passing it along.

 

Others not mentioned:

Research a Tier X - Not awarding. Note: This achievement is currently not retroactive and will only be triggered by getting a tier X AFTER 1.5.  See answer below!

 

Battle ribbon award sound: Noted as well, looking into this :smile:

No sound now liked the silver jiggling.

 

Still missing the sound of tanks scraping each other and have never received a reply as to why it was removed. I don't have an update on this one currently.

 

Web portal service record not updating today. Noted from another thread as well :smile:

This is not the way to keep your player base in my opinion.  Note: Understandable! This one is also currently not retroactive.  The server grants these achievements upon completion of the qualifying action; having the tanks in your garage is what triggers it, so if you used to own those tanks and no longer do, the system cannot grant the achievement.

when you select X to select upgrades, crews, consumables, etc, these option appear in a reel just like your tanks and crews.

I do get that but, the silver cost comes to 2,256,000 for just the Sherminator. When you are removing content to accommodate as PAIN said about 10% of the player base that are too cheap to even spend $10.00 on a flash drive you penalize those who have been spending money on this game even more with Achievements such as this one. That is a whole lot of silver to spend and in this game silver = time and money. This is a bad Achievement to add at this late date and once again shows bad planning and forethought by the folks who make these decisions at WG/WoT. It also shows a lack of concern for the players who have stayed with the game and continued to invest in its long term future. I just do not understand how a company that does so much right can again and again not get the PR part right when planning these sort of things. This is by no means a game breaker for me but they are starting to add up and for me it is sadly coming closer to that point.

 

On another note the portal has been broken since the July update and now this latest part of it breaks maybe testing these updates and the relationship to the portal in the future might be a good idea this game refers players to the portal and forums for information so when the game, portal and forums do not function as one it is frustrating to those of us that try and steer newer or learning players to them for information and help.

 

Once again thank you for the speedy reply and the information. I hope that my input is seen as trying to help and not just as a complaint for it is truly intended to be a help.

Need to put "Good Game" on first radial wheel. People still use Affirmative at the end of game because it is quicker.

Need to replace one of the new call outs with "GET OFF THE BASE!"

Tank Upgrade menu- old one was better, please gave us choice to choose between new and old style

New Radial Commands- awesome , funny,but i have this suggestion 3 radial comm wheels- one default, others activate with lt, rt, one can stay with funny things, other one should be like this " protect our arty" , " we need scout here" , " there s no one protecting flank on other side", " i will be bait, cover me and hit targets" , " track that tank" etc
