There was, but that was weeks ago I am afraid (not sure how actual that is). The Russian community was unhappy with it and the developers said they'd have "a look at it". Nothing since.

Translated - its working as intended, although we fucked up and wont admit it  :Smile_trollface-3:

P.S. forgot we were talking about community, not tanks, fixed.

Thanks anyway

Thx for your efforts.
Interesting that the russian forum seems to be even worse than europeans, sometimes one can't believe that ;)

Is it just me or does SerB come across as a right douche?

- the medal for 7 kills was removed because the difference between 6 and 7 kills is much smaller than between 7 and 8

Does anyone have a calculator this just doesn't seem right?

Basically they ran out of German tanks to nerf so they nerfed a medal instead.

It makes kinda sense. It's their way of saying "There are too many people with 6 and 7 kills and too few with 8+"

Trust me mate did you play any games last weekend cause there wasn't many people on my team with 6,7 or even 2 kills :)

Well done, +1 for you  :Smile_blinky:

Btw, was there any PzIV related answer?
Overlord mentioned something about it being a failure in Russian community eyes (shock!) and that there has been a lot of noise about it, but that´s all.
Are there really no questions about it, or is being heavily moderated to "avoid" that topic?

Thanks  :Smile_great:

I browsed the topic with PzIV related questions in my mind (with googletranslate, so I understood half or less of it) and I met something strange. Somebody - a moderator I think - warns a player who asks something about PzIV, that it is somehow forbidden, and the guy who asked will be banned.

I think many of the russian players became angry when they realized that old PzIV will be an overpriced T6 premium, and new PzIV will be poitless and unfun, so WG guys simply forced them to be silent.

I found only one bit of info. As somebody asked if they wanted to buff L/48 gun, the answer was: if necesary, as usual. So the old song again, if PzIV's win rate stays inside 48-52% range, they do nothing to make it less of a failtank.

I call BS on this one.

*This is not in anyway pointed at you @Silent, I really thank you, you took the time to give us such info. But since I cannot voice my concern to the devs, this is decent enough  -_-

Well... you'd have to see Russian forums. Can't say I blame him - the amount of twats and really dumb questions there is staggering. After hearing the same crap over and over (especially the conspiracy theories), you are bound to get sarcastic.

I have to disagree Sir.

Look at Ectar, he’s gotten some truly awful abuse on these very boards. He has to deal with us forum goers on a daily basis. That cannot be easy, as the most of us (and I include myself in this :D ) on the forum are fairly well opinionated and tend to voice what we think in no uncertain terms.
Yet, through all that bullshit he has to deal with Ectar has always been polite and courteous to us.

SerB is a dev, he has more responsibility to his paying customers, yet he can’t talk to them with respect. I don’t see why he should get any in return.

Very good work! Since this is the only source of information at the moment, you do a great job to keep us informed!

Keep it up!

- official rating system is NOT planned, quote: "it would kill the game"

Can you explain what they meant by that? Did they mean - "Matchmaking based on player ranks"?

Off topic: I understand Russian too but only passive, I guess we both remember times when we actually had to learn Russian language :)

As was said before, Ectar is community manager. If your job title has "community" in it, that means you need to have people skills.
SerB is a developer. Developers with people/social skills are rare :)

I think that most people are just pissed because WG took away their overpowered toy, but that's just me.

No. People (inculding me) are pissed because their overpowered toy became less then mediocre. From the best T5 med it became one of the most situational one, with minimal armor, below avarage firepower, and most importantly, less fun factor. We worked to reach old pz4, and now we have to buy it back for real money if we want to play it. But this is not another pz4 thread, sorry being offtopic a bit.

Thanks for the translations, anyway, you helped us (and lazy WG employees) a lot.

Agreed, Ectar is paid to communicate.  But I get the impression he would be polite regardless of pay.

I understand what you are saying, but at the end of the day the lads on the Russian forums are paying customers. It seems to me to be bad business practice to treat your customers with such blatant lack of respect.

I think a lot of it is simply down to the fact that WG have had zero competition for the last 2 years, they are complacent with looking after their cashcows (that would be us). However, there are 2 good games in development that are looking to compete directly with WG.

Both those games have devs that are very active (and polite!) with the respective communities. If they are as good as I suspect they are going to be then WG are in for one hell of a shock when their active player base up and leaves. Why should we show them any loyalty when their lead dev talks to his customers like that?
