I really really hope I can make this one work and actually get into a battle.

9.19 has been a jinx for me up to now ;)

Problem with the server - can't buy/research modules or equipment.  It shows no  credits/XP/Gold totals

I cannot purchase with gold, free XP and bonds.

Also i am stucked in the queue and it does not want to get me in the battle or quit from the queue.

I think we should get a micropatch for it.;)

It worries me that the improved equipment is still in the test, in my opinion the game will suffer a lot from it. Why?

 

Well, there are four reasons. Firstly, better players will earn more bonds then worse players. This means, that on average, the better players will have an advantage over players that were losing already. This will frustrate them, and turn them off the game. Is that a problem? Yes, because new players are usually worse than existing players, and they will not get a fair chance until thy reach tier X, which is a long way.

 

Secondly, players that like to play random games competitively, need to invest huge amount of ranked-battle grinding, to max their tanks out. This turns for them into another obligatory time investment (besides crew skills and expensive equipment). For players who like to play many different tanks (and invested heavily in garage slots), it means you can only equip a few tanks. Players who play only a few tanks on the other hand, get a nice etch. 

 

Thirdly, as I already briefly mentioned, you will need an tier X to participate. This has 2 negative consequences: it takes a while to get there, and you will get stumped in your way grinding up; and it will be a steady loss of credits if you don't have premium.

 

Fourthly, the equipment might (and will) create huge imbalances in the game. Imagine a FV215b 183 'deathstar', getting way more accurate. Or firing under 20 seconds. Imagine an object 261 that can fire over 3 rounds/min. Those kind of situations are undesirable, and can potentially ruin the fun in the game. (Or make it even more fun for a few...)

 

As a conclusion, I strongly suggest to rework the special equipment, and make it so that you can't earn an advantage over players who do not play ranked battles.

First u eff up and makes arties even more irritating

Then u introduce lights and "balance" them

And to top it of u put in ranked battles this patch, where u can get better equipment to make the game more unbalanced for those of us who has a life or have no interest in ranked....even though supertesters flamed at u for this stupid move.

And we all know what will happen in a short little while.....bonds will appear in shop (even though u claim otherwise) and u`re forced to buy them to be slightly competetive.

Keep going in this direction and u will loose more players. I stopped playing when u released 9.18.

Please don't let arty into the new game mode.

Don't allow rewards in new game mode to be used in random battles.

While I don't think being able to use this equipment only in ranked is a good idea (why bother playing ranked at all then), nor is it THAT game breaking, I do not like it anyways. I might be able to get my hands on it rather fast and improve my game experience, but it is certainly going to hurt less experienced players, aka new players. I'd rather be able to buy cw tanks for example and special camo. 

To be absolutely clear here, I do not want my hard earned cw tanks to be practically free. But those who perform well and invest the time, yet do not like cw gameplay should receive another way to obtain those vehicles.
