Jsut read a Q&A WG just did and my face is so red from having to facepalm at every second answer.

I advise you to tier your hands to prevent any dmg. I am not reponsible  for any personal harm.

 

About type5/4:

Spoiler

WG balanec department hard at work!

 

 

 

About the removal of weakspots:

Spoiler

Pls learn me how to flank on the current maps WG... 

 

 

About obj907:

Spoiler

Everyone that currently has the 907 had it vefore it was buffed. Reversing the buffs doesnt make it unfair.

 

After all that, are you ready for more?  I have to warn you, this is the stupidest thing WG said this year:

Spoiler

 

 

And one to finish it of:

Idk why it's so difficult to make the AP guns on the Jap HT's on tier 7 to X more appealing. As atm everyone runs O-I derp on the 7/8 even. And gold ammo on the Type 4/5 is a bit silly. Idk why it needs all that damage. It would be fine with the same, or even lower damage and more pen. Or even a AP/HEAT round with less damage with more pen vs HE... like the Russian 152 derps has. As I highly doubt many would be upset with consistent damage, even if it's AP with "meh" pen.

Not much more to say. Doesn't seem like WoT is heading in the right direction anytime soon. Incompetence galore.

Of course not, can't you see that they don't have the "statistics" or the "numbers" to decide on changes.
They can't feel how broken things are because they don't play the game.

Not too long ago I searched the internet for a picture of two men having intercourse, I then placed WG's logo over the face of the recieving man's face and the text "D A T A" over the giving man's face.

 

Hurr durr we can't balance tanks that aren't played enough.

WG, please arrange the following letters in the right order: Y K S

To an extent, playing the game can only give information from a certain perspective.  WG's data set is complete.  They see shots fired, damage done across the board.  Not in a tiny, encapsulated bubble.  If you are a player with a certain play style some tanks will feel broken and OP.  Others will feel weak.  WG has to balance the game for both points of view.  While it may be unsatisfying from your point of view.  From WG's point of view (fiscal and game play) I am sure it makes sense.

 

I will agree however, the game feels dumbed down.  Mass appeal trumps game play there.

I doubt strongly their statistics show the leo 1 is a strong tank.

Also:

 

The tvp vtu > defender meme is kind of old and getting boring. 

But no worry! WG got us covered, the new meme for 2018:

 

WG :

-We think that the Types are not breaking anything in the game. They are very difficult to play.

-The Leopard is very strong, it is a great all-rounder and it would be too OP if we buffed it.

 

LEOPARD1 > TYPE5 CONFIRMED

It was perfectly fine doing it with the T-22 med, though. Yes, I know about the rigging, but removing the tank and missions was the lazy way out. If they could investigate anything without the need to be sent replays, they would remove the tank and ban the riggers and let everyone keep trying to get it.

LEOPARD1 > TYPE5 CONFIRMED

 

THE MEME IS STRONG WITHIN THIS ONE

 

What are they thinking? The Type can't stay as it is now! It's gamebreakingly OP, together with the Maus. Few people play it only because it's

a) dirty as hell

b) O-Ho sucks

c) an arty magnet

d) gonna eat your credits, because of gold HE

They're just milking the game for all they can, and every buff/nerf and comment should be viewed from that perspective.

Nothing else expected from these brainiacs haha, i can just laugh about this... Cant take the developers for serious anymore. A drunken monkey or even a [edited]stone could balance the game better than these clowns :trollface::facepalm: Saying that Type 5 and 907 are balanced and Leopard would be too strong after a buff should be enough to consider a transfer to the mental asylum for these guys.

Well to match WG IQ I'll say it in simple terms...

 

  • Most things that works with HE sucks, some suck more than others, you gotta revise the retarded mechanic instead of threading the needle with every tank and class.
  • 907 nerf is bad because it's a reward but the standard leopard can eat ****, not a valid strategy in my opinion!
  • Every month you spend making HD rocks makes the game weaker and uninteresting.
  • Forums as they are have precious little of good ideas, try to use that instead of your friggin "data".

 

Edit: back to watching Orzy :)

After I heard a CC saying WG does nothing to people who cheats, even if they have proves, replays, etc to show them, WG doesn't care about it and just want to let the "automated system" work on its own. I was once part of a MMORPG team as a GM/Supporter and I can tell everyday they/we would ban at least 20 guys for doing anything against the rules, either cheating or using any kind of bug exploit. And videos/PM's worked very well to do so. Maybe because that game didn't had an automated system to do the work for us? But I like how non-sense this is.

 

Btw - I saw a few weeks ago something that seemed to be another Q&A from the DailyBounceBlog too (maybe was part of this one Q&A) where WG said the MM was working as intended and the data they had didn't showed anything wrong with the current MM system, where normal player is 95% of the games bottom tier, 4% middle tier and 1% top tier (in the 3-5-7 MM which works pretty well (cof cof))
