Hopefully the game will evolve for the better.The last patches have been pointing the game in the right direction.

I love the improvement to the game which prevents mods from working. I'm a huge fan of adding as many new maps as possible as well as reintroducing old ones, but this is even better.

How about permanently blocking in-game stats and removing clan-tags from the team list? Randoms are a team effort, it shouldn't matter what clan ppl are in or what stats they have. As of now, ppl get shat on if they are not in the happy medium somewhere stat-wise. And don't even get me started on "famous" clan-tags. :izmena:

 

And I do wish WG had a way of making the tank classes in-game more readable. My eyesight isn't good enough to easily tell the classes apart easily with the vanilla client. I'd like to go completely mod free, but I just can't handicap myself with those icons. Just a slight hue on the different classes would be all I need.

In short: we successfully broke all the mods!

I don't use XVM but I do like my damage panel mod... Anyway, yes the game must be further developed but sadly this development move is going to hit the modding community pretty hard. I hope a damage panel will be introduced as at least an optional setting someday.

Great. I hope they give up and XVM stays broken. Game would be so much better.

Well, without better tank carrousel (more than one visible row) and easy crew transfer between normal and premium tanks, I am just gonna vote with my wallet and play and pay for some other game.

I'm overjoyed, XVM or the WoT equivalent to Gearscore (WoW players will know what I'm talking about) can eat S.H.I.T. and die; more specifically the player skill indicator, it brings nothing but pain and misery and I hope in future version they make it possible to hide your stats from other players.

​While I don't disagree, that is something which should happen after fixing the MM, cause too often scores are 15-2 or something like that, or you get himmelsdorf, with 2 heavies and the enemy gets 5 heavies. The MM should be balanced in such a way that for every tank there is an equal tiered counterpart. Sure that will increase wait times, but I wouldn't care that I have to wait 30 secs instead of 15. (Added to the fact that you too often see the one team getting 10 green WN8 players and the other get 5 reds and a few yellows. It shouldn't always be 50% win chance, I do think they should balance the two teams on skill. Don't show it in game, but do use it in the MM)

 

edit: In the current game it is too important to know which team mates you can rely on/which enemies are the most dangerous in a bad match-up, which is the only reason I have used XVM, too often there is a 4v1 for my team and my team is still scared of that one guy, if I have a skilled teammate he will realize we need to push. (Not that I'm a great player, but my tactical awareness is my strong suit in this game)

 

p.s. 9.15.1 test server has bigger tank icons on the minimap, so that might help you a bit ;)

No mate in current game its more important to know which one of your team mates has brain and which one does not so you don't put your trust in them. Red enemy players can pen you just as easily as green/blue etc. I use XVM to see on who I can rely in a match. You see a red player he will push/block/shoot you.

So basically "WG is not responsible for anything WoT related happening at all." yeah we know WG is not a responsible company at all.

 

Screw you WG for not managing mods (fair/unfair) and after 5 years of unfair mod users getting advantage you finally decide mods are not cool and should crash the game. (Even the ones that don''t give unfair advantages) Ha, lol, gg wp.

 

You ain't even worth a detailed replay at this point in my eyes. Maybe nerf weekly tournament prizes from 250 gold to a used tampon. Maybe crash my game in garage and in battle (without mods) and keep blaming mods. Jajajaj 10/10 would unproductive hate on forums again.

So why are there always "ban XVM" or "XVM is evil/s**t" posts?  I mean if you don't like it, don't use it.  If you want to use it, then use it.  I've never seen an "XVM is amazing it should be compulsory for all" kind of post.... because those who choose to use it just get on with it, without pushing their views on others.

And Yes I use XVM but I have never thrown a game with that idiotic "we lose" mentality (or more accurately "loose" :facepalm:).  I have been part of victories in "5% chance to win" games and part of losses "85% chance to win" games.  That's probably the one most useless feature of XVM but I'm too lazy to turn it off!

 

It's a bit like arty players and arty haters...  what's the ratio of "remove/nerf arty" posts to "please buff arty" posts?  Arty players just accept and get on with it.  Plus, if someone posts an anti-arty topic, all the arty haters descend on it.  If someone posts a pro-arty topic... all the arty haters descend on it...

And yes, I play arty.  I was mega-peeved the other day when my tier 9 med got 1 shot by a T92, then a few games later I penned and 1.5k one-shot a Panther 8.8 in my GW Tiger P.  Did I rage at the first and gloat at the second?  No... well not in game chat anyway (I might have done so in my head).

 

XVM is like religion, some choose to have one, some choose not to.  No one is more right/wrong than anyone else, but when you start pushing your views on other people.........
