Wow, that engine looks awesome! Also, my soon to be 8 yrs old CPU says thanks for optimization!

'resolving long-standing issues with the matchmaker'

 

lololololololol

 

'We designed miles upon miles of outland'

 

Great, hours of time wasted on pretty outland we can't reach or use. Definitely worth it, well done.

 

 

'redesigned maps'

 

New maps?? Or just some pretty detail on old maps that adds little to the gameplay?

 

BTW, did you manage to close of more areas used by scouts and TDs, preferencing gameplay even more towards meds and heavies? Cos we really need a few more well placed boulders or glass walls to reduce options and force us all into fewer and fewer easily predictable areas.

 

Ok, move on folks, nothing to see here.

 

It amazes me that a company which produced a fantastic game such as World of Tanks can work so assiduously to wreck it.

Is this irony or some sort of humble brag?

This year’s seen us fix the game’s core, resolving long-standing issues with the matchmaker, arty, and light tanks

 

Are u aware that these fixing long-standing issues in the way you did , made a lot of players quit or play less .

 

The mm is worse then before all the changes  .

Maybe the mm was never perfect , but these changes contributed to decline of game .

Players dont like 3/5/7 but wg keep saying its the best way to go .

 

The arty as is now , it often takes away from the game , the stunning is awful and top tier in 3/5/7 is terrible .

Most players find arty as is now less fun .

 

The light tank changes also did not bring any positive impact to the game imo , it did introduce new models to the game ,

but for me i like how it was before way better , also mm  even though u almost always be bottom tier before the changes ,

it was more fun to play .

 

Offcourse there has also been introduction of op premiums , bad treatment of playersbase and milking without any shame ,

maybe a shift to be more pay to win .

These are also factors that made players quit or play less .

Its not that the game was getting to old , or new games came up that took away players , it was all WG own wrongdoing .

 

But if WG feels that all these changes made the game better , it doesnt promise much for the future .

 

Now new hd maps , that is welcomed by a part of the playerbase as they have the hardware for it .

It could have positive impact on the game , personally i think would be better to keep old engine but then really fix these core issues , not make them worse , and releasing new maps instead of releasing all old ones in HD with some extra work done on them .

 

I dont think a new engine can safe the game as in the end its about the gameplay , if that is no good it doesnt matter it looks better .

Introduction of new modes takes too long , or is not done right , so now changes again to ranked battles when it would be possible to get it right first time , now 3rd time ranked changes in rewarding chevrons etc , and have to see if it works out as improvement .

 

First years i played this game was better , now more and more last years it feels like game in early beta stage , with all the bugs that come with it .

looking forward to slaughtering some dreamers paying more attention to the new landscapes and flowers than the game play... :)

 

but seriously my concern is not whether my laptop is able to handle the new graphics (I am sure it is), but the amount of heat the new graphics will generate and thus stress my system. I am already struggling to keep the GPU temps below 80% by playing on mediocre graphics settings and reducing CPU performance down to 70%

Anybody saw the clues about the next Nation tech tree in the 2018-video? Polish tanks? Hungarian? Italian?

 

Additionally a question to the mods: Are the tech tree connections fixed? I'd like to buy the kv-13 and grind some xp for the upcoming soviet branch!

I agree, also using Mac, will the game still run for me, or is it the end of WOT for me ?

HD maps looked great when I saw them on the test server they made the game look very different.

25 maps is a good start, looking forward to it.

Nope, even single one. I watched carefully but seriously, there are nothing to see there or they are talking about different clip. I suppose all new vehicles shown in 2018 video were stored in the garages.
