Good morning!

As some of you may have now noticed, the Suggestion forums for the EU section are now no longer pre moderated. This means that when you post a suggestion there, it will be instantly visible to everyone and open for discussion. The 50 post limit before you can create a new topic is still in place (this may actually increase). In the near future we will also be adding a battle limit before you can create new suggestion topics also. This means for example that players will need to have a minimum of 50 forum posts AND a minimum of 100 battles (number not confirmed) before they can create a suggestion topic.

There is multiple reasons for these restrictions. Mainly it's to prevent lots of duplicate posts, suggestions for things that just simply are not possible to do/not within the spirit/design of the game, or are actually just a complaint. Some bad examples of this would be:

"Hay Wargaming, lets add Attack Helicopters!"
"Hey, I just started and this game is unfair, fix your matchmaking"
"I should be able to just buy a tier 10 instead of a tier 5"
"Why can't my friend in his tier 8 join my tier 2 battles and help me?"
"Suggestion: Add the M1 Abrams as a tier 12 premium"

In the Gameplay Discussion section, and Newcomers section there is now no need to put ideas there. Especially when people start a thread saying "I can't post in the suggestion forums, so I'll post here"  - These threads will be closed, sent to the Junkyard and not reviewed.

If you are a Clan Wars player, please check out this thread in the Ultimate Conquest section where we're asking players directly for feedback on Clan Wars.

The incoming forum restructure will help players navigate the the forums and we also have some awesome changes coming up on the portal (that's a teaser, you'll just have to wait and see).  Any questions feel free to ask.

Regards,

EU Community Team

To avoid any confusion, please note this thread is not the suggestion forums. The suggestion forums can be found here:

I would like to see 3 changes in the game, pls comment it how do you feel about it...

1. A huge bug which needs to be fixed, mostly near building if I want to shoot, the shot goes right in the building, when I keep the cannon on the target. (+ fix when you can't see the enemy at all near the building)

2. Huge bug, when the shot is just disappear. (+ the tank what you shoot is just disappear)

3. Take out the premium ammo from the game at all!!! It ruins the game! Take it out, even from CW, than the players who CAN play will win, not the noobs with the gold shells... We want to enjoy the game... not support the keyboard, and mouse factorys....

+1 a lot of my friends told me, they are not able to play with the superpershing at all, because without gold ammo it doesn't penetrate anything... but it used to be a good tank they said...

Notice from Gibbon28, Bulldozer1, Foresz1:

It would be good if you can have a look at the Superpershing, why it became a very bad tank.
Since there is no sense to play with it because of premium ammo, every tank penetrate it, even the tanks from the lower tiers.
I didn't pay for one free space in the garage, I paid for a premium tank.

Will old, previously Unapproved posts be added to the forums now?

I ask as I've posted ideas before hand which just dispeared into the eather, and I still think they had merit.

Hijacker, this isn't the suggestion forums. Please re-read my post. Then go to the suggestion forums and read the rules there BEFORE you post.

This was months ago,  Just after Gamescom. I put up some ideas on how to improve the stage show so that it wasn't just endless strippers and the same WoWP trailer.

Thanks WGCT,
English isn't my mother tounge, I couldn't find where should I post all of them, so pls copy it where it belongs, or give me an exact link...
As far as I understand the meaning of the topic: "Changes to the Suggestion forums", I thought it belongs here...
Thanks

"Pre-moderating" topic making with forum post and battle cap is all allright but the fact you can't even reply to a topic is a bit harsh. I can't count how many times I've been gnawing my fingers for not being able to participate in suggestions topic. That's where the really constructive conversations are and with over 10k battles I feel a bit left out when not being able to participate.

EDIT: Wouldn't want to spam my way in the suggestions forum...  :Smile_trollface-3:

"Suggestion: Add the M1 Abrams as a tier 12 premium"

I don't understand. What's wrong with these great ideas? I've got hundreds just like them (put cows and cowpats in the fields for more fun in tank battles), but I can't post in the suggestions because i've only got 49 posts.

Wait a minuit, I've got 50 now! Yippee! Where's the suggestion box? My ideas juices are flowing. Bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub bub ( how do you spell that sound where you run your finger over your bottom lip and blow out at the same time, my English is not that good ?).

That's all folks.


My God. That was quick. My suggestion has been implemented already.
Well done WG.

No offense, but this is unfair, if I write something valuable and it doesn't count because before that I have to Spam more or less 50 posts.... I don't want to comment on anything, I found a problem, and asked to have a look at it.
Actually as far as I know, that's the way to improve the gameplay, ask the players what's wrong, not send them away with this. I am not a child, and I didn't like the way how my post was treated...
Thank you!

On the Russian forums you need to have 5000 battles before you can even ask a question in the Dev Q&A section.  I think our restriction for suggestions are more than generous to help filter out well thought out suggestions that are not something we are already aware of, or have spoken about multiple times already (Such as asking for premium ammo to be removed).

Hi Ectar,

one additonal question, why does WG open a patch feedback forum where a lot of people give feedback and no one from WG is replieing?
If you do not need our feedback then state that, otherwise please make sure that people do not have the feeling they are talking with a wall :)

Thank you

With kind regards
