Really  yes , but change graphic engine so the game can play with  2-3-4-6-8 cores processor.  This is 10 days  until 2014  guys , this is not the age of pentium 4 .

What about the sound? In film making the biggest difference between amateur and pro productions is the sound, not the video! And the sound is still pretty lame. + the localised languages aren't nearly as good as I expected...

I have to confess - the difference is not that huge for me - better sound improves atmosphere much more for me then some optical changes.

Physics improved wot massively!

The lightning comparison 7.4 - 8.1  is nice. However the curent oversaturation of some maps like mines - annoying as hell - for me a bug.

Or why is sth which is yellow in my garage on some maps green (camopattern on chinese tanks), why do some maps have this strange colorfilter ... also not desired for me.

Moreover - compared to other games I have, wot runs very slow for its look. Even wowp runs better!

having "better" lighting doesn't make it better, neither having "realistic" motion blur

neither of those make a "better" engine

 

BigWorld is still trash that WG keeps insisting on using, even if that technology is from 2004 - that's 9 years old

what about night map.. and the lights of tanks would make the game more realistic and everyone would say "that kv-1 has OP lights !! "

It would be cool if in the next period you could optimize the graphic engine so that it uses more then 1 CPU cores,  also you could add weather conditions (rain,snow) and night time battles, as well as adding new and realistic sounds of tanks, the sound when the tanks moves its turret etc.

as long as all the new extra bits are optional, bloom, motion blur etc, being visually impaired all i want is a game that is clearly visible and runs smoothly with a decent frame rate, i stuggle seeing through some types if foliage already, (i have to move my head closer to the screen)

 

and i'm assuming extra bloom / blur would make it worse :honoring:

Multi-core support is essential and it should be their highest priority. The game needs to run smooth no matter what the graphics are like. Even some high-end PC configurations have trouble pulling over 50 fps on highest settings. And that's just sad.

Oooooo, lovely.

 

Now introduce weather, night games and mulitcore support the way that people have been asking for as long as, I dunno, you've been titting around making realistic birds.

 

PS They aren't that realistic by the way; they don't seem to be disturbed by 30 ton battles tanks flattening their habitat and firing [edited] off great shells around them, and I've never seen pigeon crap down the side of my Churchill.... :glasses:

Dear WG, please repeat after me:

1. WE   NEED   MULTI-CORE   SUPPORT.

2. WE   NEED   GARAGE    BATTLES   AND/OR   BOSS   FIGHTS.

 

Everything else is welcome, but pretty much optional.

I'm pretty sure I won't be able to play the game with new patch... must fix my desktop... Can you suggest Specs for a new computer to run this smoothly?

or at least what should my config have? CPU, RAM, grafic card...

Go for highest GHz CPU and half decent GPU. For me upgrade from GTX260 to GTX660 gave nothing, and upgrade from 2.5 GHz P4 Quad to 3.9 GHz AMD 8-core almost doubled fps (game is still running on 1 core).
P.S. RAM 4/8/12 GB changed nothing either.

i dont know, would be nice if instead of adding new features they actually tried to optimize game... you know so i wont run this game with 25 FPS on machine that can run Battlefield 4 on full details on 90 FPS

If you are worried your PC will start to let you down when playing the games you really want to play then first focus on the basics of your machine.. if you haven't started putting components in yourself, a good way to get onto that (better value for money) habit is Barebone bundles.. i.e. you buy a case, motherboard, processor, power supply, ram.. no hard drive, no forced purchase of an OS, no optical drive, no graphics card.. like these : http://www.novatech.co.uk/barebonebundles/ <-- these guys check their bundles before shipping and give their own guarantee separate from the manufacturer's, If they aren't a suitable store for where you live, have a look for other barebones bundles.. 

 

The reason i suggest this is because when upgrading a PC don't worry about graphics cards, etc.. you don't need to worry, just focus on getting the core of your machine to last you as long as you can, and then anything else will come and go as the years pass

 

ps. to clarify. this is because a good graphics card wont help a poor motherboard/processor, and changing those parts is basically a new computer, even if it happens to inherit peripherals from the older one

 

pps. Andrenas is right about the processor, though i don't think 8 cores is going to be useful, that's my opinion. The logic however is quite robust.. simply put regardless of (total) power, a single core's power is the number to look at because not everything will use more than one... or 8.... so additional cores are only useful some of the time. 

Personally - i just got a 4th generation i7 with shiney motherboard and stuff, nothing "too" flash though.. and a GTX 770 card, i can expect to replace the card in a few years maybe but i don't expect to have to actually replace this computer now for many years, by the time i do it will possibly be because electronic processors are no longer in vogue.. or should that be "electrical" as the device overall would still be ...bored of typing, have a nice day :honoring:
