I am just curios how many actually use the HD client.

 

I wish they (WG, it seems many people fail to use the right word for they, but fear not ill lend you a hand) would invest this amount of effort in gameplay / balancing :( like they do in graphic.

You want the graphics department to work on balancing?  Interesting....

 

I'm going to get Ferrari to put their interior guys in charge of engines.  What could go wrong?

To be fair, it's not like they could do a worse job than the actual balance department is doing right now...

The graphics department is actually doing a pretty solid job, albeit a slow one. I'd like to see more focus on physics, since that actually impacts the gameplay pretty hard.

Altough I don't mind the slow pace, it's fine to retexture few tanks at a time. What I do mind is the balance department meddling into it once they do an HD retex. I understand they want to do one tank at a time, but soon we'll be firing gold rounds at tier 5 tanks, because they got an HD remodel lol
Not like we're already not firing gold rounds at the O-I exp.

Cushy engines with smooth curves.

Game looks nice which is a non trivial element of my engagement with this game.

if you got the pc for it having a nicer looking game isnt an issue right ?

 

also thinking that they havent specialized sections is pretty naive

 

do you think the marketing dep. does the sounds when there is nothing else to do ?

Upgrading the engine or upgrading TO a better engine should fix some stutter and lag, that appears even on high-end PCs sometimes, for example, when the engine mishandles a loading of some part of the game and has to do it again.

I don't care much for looks, but having high hopes that more than visuals were fixed. Using a year on remaking all maps, that kind of sets the course for what WG actually wants. If that is eternal basefapping TD-meta, it might be time to give it a break.

for a period of time you should expect it to get even worse

mainly when players had to "test" the new feuatures of  getting wet, shockwaves , destruction etc so at least for 2-3 weeks the focus might not actually be on fighting the enemy

HD content is great in the garage. You can watch your tank's details.

HD content is great when you wonder around in a map, without any fight.

But during an actual fight.... No point of using HD content.

A nice and simple analogy that I hope all those people complaining about one area of the game being 'neglected' in favour of another will be able to understand.  

 

Just because some departments in WG are working on areas other than the ones some people feel should be a priority doesn't mean that no one is working on those areas AS WELL.

 

I use HD on my main computer and SD on the dusty old (2011) laptop.  Game runs fine on both, albeit at opposite ends of the graphics prettiness spectrum.

I wouldn't be so certain about that. Sure balancing is crap currently, but imagine a WG graphics guy working on it:

 

- "these models look so naked, lets add some more details"

- "what do you mean 'collision model'? That stuff can't be rendered anyway without textures."

- "well, if it should have more armor lets just use a darker shade of gray. Don't need those dummy 'collision model' values, we should just remove those."

Its quite interessting to see that many actually use HD client. Im aware that this pool has no meaning, but at least it shows the trend from the people in forum.

You'll find that PC gamers generally have gaming spec PCs in Western Europe.  I doubt that many people only play WoT and most modern games have much higher demands than WoT.

Indeed, Wolfenstein The New Colossus looks like it's going to test my system - can't wait for that - looks awesome.
