Guess what, no HD maps in end of summer, coz they did not finished them yet. HAHA, who is surprised? I'm not. 

So to end of year, WG need to finish all maps, and make them into HD, add all tanks in HD and give us Personal Mission 2.0. They have 5 months and 2 updates, so yea. 9.20 big balance update, and 9.20.1 is small like this new one....great job WG.

With lack of news and screenshots recently it was obvious already that they are not coming yet.

Well, you have games like Metro 2033, not made by russians yet close to them. So those people can do good games, many are. But issue is WG. What this update we play now did give us ? One tier 10 tank, few buff and 13!!! or so HD model. If they dont give us new lines or maps, why we get so few HD models ? edited they doing there ?

Well considering they are going to do all the maps in one patch, and not a handful at a time like the HD tanks. I can't say I'm surprised. As I'm sure it's not a "quick" fix considering how many maps they have to work on. And that some of them are getting reworked in the prosses. Then on the other hand, HD tanks is taking to long. I suspect since they change the way they make them more or less constantly. First few models was not made in house, but sourced out by different companies. So results varied from good to bad. Then they started to scan tanks and did the models in house again. So for each time they change approach, it delays it further. Considering how long since the first one came, back then I would have guessed it would be done by this point in time.

 

And Personal Mission 2.0 is way overdue. Not sure why they have not done it yet. As the first one was gonna last for 12 months... That was about 30 months ago now since the first missions arrived. So way overdue IMO. As those missions was the only reasons why some of my mates stuck around. And now... they have not played for awhile, as there is no new missions to grind out.

I don't care about HD maps at all. For me it's useless feature, I play on lowest setting anyway and use only max render range. HD will not change my WoT satisfaction.

But I care a lot about map pool. And stopping map pool grow until HD comes is unacceptable.

I demand now bringing back all old removed maps. If map is unbalanced I demand MM mechanics swap map spawn side each one I join particular map.

It's simple solution to make map pool bigger and less boring. We need more maps anyway but if WG fails add each month few new map they should bring back old ones. NOW.

Well, WG is big company, I dont believe 5 people work hard on making maps into HD. 

Lets look on this with more details. This year we wont get new nations, no new tanks, so WG will talk how hard they working on HD maps, just to show us they do something. Best part no maps to end of year if not longer. PM 2.0, we know nothing, still WG have no idea what to do, but then again they will just give us new premium tanks to buy, and this will be going. 

Tiger I should be remake into better HD quality, bo WG works hard on maps. What about rebalans of crew perks ? Do you remember when WG was talking about making 6 sense radioman ability when he get to 100%, how many years ago they said about doing that ? Too many.

I really couldn't care less about HD maps. If you ask me, that is last problem on the list in wot.

Regardiing maps - we need new ones. I would like too see some new maps, or some old, also... And i mean proper maps, not those coridor crap like Pilsen, Paris etc.

HD maps.... do not care.

Who cares about usless HD maps when game is unplayable and not fun at all?

 

WG is seriously just ignoring the most common issues of this game...

Do you get that WG said no new maps until old one are in HD ? This is reason why I said this is joke. We will wait to 2018 to get new maps in WoT...

hd tanks should be donewithin a year  and that year was 2014 or was it 2015 ?

 

reworking swamp took them 4 years

 

with their usual working speed and the 40+ active maps right now we should be happy if we see hd maps by the end of the next century

New and shiny HD content sells like hot cakes to the masses! Because shiny HD = good and balanced game! /s

 

Think about this: how much money do (have) they throw(n) at projects, that become delayed and fail to reach their release deadlines (or get scrapped)? Developers aren't really the cheapest personnel to hire, even in Russia.

So how do they keep this business doing, without going tits up...well see recent *cough* premium content *cough*

Maybe, and this is just a wild theory of course, this delay has something to do with WG actually having to work really hard to transfer the maps into HD? As opposed to copy/pasting Tigers and Panthers for the Premium Shop, which is kind of, well, NOT hard?

It's cheaper to torture us before reintroducing Gulag Valley Severogorsk and Komarin. :D

 

Jokes aside, Severogorsk was badly recieved as one of the first 'corridor maps', but not bad for what it was. Komarin was one of the first maps with the lovely positions for TDs to camp the base - a precursor to how some of the maps have become recently. If we go with 'not worse than some of the current maps', it's probably a good idea for variability.

 

Oh, and it's pretty damn retarded to halt 'old map development' when there's plenty to work on. Reminds me of something in the past... Project HD rocks is approaching Havok-class vapourware status soon.
