Excellent Extension. As the game has been overwelmed with many Mods out there it's nice to see Wargaming looking into trends on what is used and then adding it within the platform.

Maybe there is hope...

Maybe all mods will be forbidden and there will be a REAL cheat control...

Maybe we will stop to see external app like tundra, various aimbots, etc.

 

To be honest, i know that there are still players using forbidden mods but NOTHING is happening to them.

And i am not the only one who knows how things were and still are.

So long for wargaming say "we will ban players who cheat" but there is nothing concrete going on.

 

So hope is fading away over time. There is a strong need for stopping the cheating and the sooner, the better will be for the game.

Seems to me that they are implementing almost all the features that XVM contains.

By now it remains only the minimap zoom on pressing a key and the most competitive task for them will be the displaying of the players skill(if it will be such implementation in the future).

Overall they are good features, but some kind of a copyright not their competence and seems to me that it passed to much time for those to happen.

Highlighting prem ammo? Interesting.

Personally I find this bit information useful especially when driving heavily armored tanks. If I know that opponent lost patience with APs and starts shooting premium ammo at me, I may be able use this knowledge to my advantage.

In reality the opponent has no patience at all... if you get what I mean.

For quite some time the mods were deemed as uncool and unfair. Till WG started copying them all. The personal touch ofc, as usual. Damage log on top instead of the hitlog.:teethhappy:

It's good intel to have, so you can tell AP and APCR apart easily; HEAT was always distinctive of course.

 

Yeah, I would decribe it as "interesting" :)

the only bit i dont like about the way WG are doing it so far is that everything is i the same place making it difficult at times to get the information you want.  Would be better if there was a way to display damage done in 1 corner, blocked in another damaged received in a third and keep the ribbon as it is

Yes, thank you. :)

 

Now, if only you would add "auto return crew" and I don`t think I will really need XVM any longer :)

Its a good move though if it leads to blocking of all mods not included in the game I have mixed feelings.

Its good if it leads to a more level playing field but its bad for the mod makers who backed and mostly improved this game if they find there is no longer a place for their talents.

"Who hit you (vehicle name and type)"

Dearest Folau,

The Dinger Logo freely announces to every Tom, [edited]and Harry that you will be on the end of a gold spam fest.

Now everybody will be able too see gold spammers, and to cross reference they're damage hit log to the regular "gold hater threads".

How mischievous of WG to enable such a possible troll fest, when a regular gold hater gets outed on the forums.

I think large dolops of humble pie may be consumed;)

Regards

Tommy.
