Brown Joystick Award 2017

 

We are rapidly approaching the end of this Year and it was a busy Year indeed. We've seen many "interesting" changes and vehicles added to the game we all love, but perhaps the best part of this must be the answers we've gotten from our dedicated developers. While reading this You all might as well enjoy a little a bit of music in the background to put you in the right mood. 

 

So without any delays let's move on and once again be amazed by the almighty wisdom of people involved in making this game "better" for everyone. 

 

Gamescom 2017 - TVP VTU can easily counter Defenders

 

There has been great unrest both on the forum or in the game about releasing OP tier 8 premiums. Patch after patch we could see new tier 8 premiums being released and the worst part about it was they were always better then their tech tree counterparts and also better then the previously released premiums.

But the "funniest" comment of all came from Milos Jerabek, his words will go down in history and shall never be forgotten.

https://www.facebook.com/WorldOfTanks/videos/10159422905185377/

 

Perhaps we went too far with buffs to the Maus

 

Who would have thought that Your buffs were perhaps a bit too much ? It's not like "Your" community told you many times on the forum that buffing everything on this tank will be a disaster. No, You went ahead with it anyway and then quoting Your words "it was a bit of a shock".

 

Ranked battles Season 2 was a huge success 

 

Really ? That's why You had to change the ranking system in the half of the season to make it more accessible for players to reach League 1. Nevertheless, I do enjoy Ranked battles and I hope they'll come out soon again.

 

Type 5 is hard to play

 

I am just going to quote this gem of an answer.

"Type 5 Heavy is hard to play"

 

The Type 5 Heavy is really situational tank. Lack of mobility, long reload time, no camo. Obviously when you meet him on Himmelsdorf, Charkiv, Ensk, etc. it's hard to compete against him (but not impossible), because the tank is excellent in holding flanks or corridors using his great armor values. If you find yourself in Type 5 Heavy on the open map ... different story. You can easily outspot him, flank him and kill him.

 

God bless this guy, he came to our Forumsseum as a young gladiator enters arena, full of ideals and dreams of crowds chairing his name in the streets after the victorious battle, but he was struck by reality and some really insightful comments made by Taji and WunderWurst. Oh reality you ruthless biatch.

 

Leopard 1 is great at sniping at ranges 600 to 700 meters 

 

Once again our young gladiator tried to reason with the old dogs full of scars and came out ashamed with his lack of fighting skills.

3. Because it is decent tank with sniper gun. I checked the video that someone posted here about the accuracy which is completely irrelevant, because trying the accuracy by shooting tank 300 meters away is ... how would it look like if the E100 was 400, 500, 600 or 700 meters away?

View PostKayi4ek, on 14 December 2017 - 03:08 PM, said:

Of course I do. And I love shooting tanks behind the draw distance. Especially on maps like Malinovka, Prokhorovka, Westfield, Lakeville or Redshire.

 

 Leopard 1 can't be buffed because it would make it too OP

 

The Leopard is very strong, a good sniper from 2nd or 3rd line. If you are the first one to get spotted, you won’t do so well, but with that penetration, accuracy, camouflage it is a great all-rounder and it would be too OP if we buffed it.

 

Of course we all understand this one, buffs to Obj 907 were clearly justified, and no one will be more happier then the owners of 907 to receive such a lovely buff's which made this medium one of the most broken things in the game. What the hell it's Russian so it's ok to be OP :). Should I also mention that there was no information in the patch notes about your changes to 907 ?

"According to Milos Jerabek (development director) and his yesterday stream, changes in the Object 263 line are cancelled for now. Or at least removing/downtiering 263 itself is out of question, since Object 268 v4 appeared to be an unsuitable replacement."

 

"The Object 268 Variant 4 will replace the Object 263 at Tier X, while the latter will move to Tier IX. This combination performed well during Supertests, and we’d like test it once again with you."

 

Confusion is the name of the game!

But I must admit I "enjoyed" reading some of the ones you posted again, it even more enforce my belief that the new balance director have no idea what the product he's employed to "balance" even is.

 

Edit: You might want to edit out the blank space at the bottom a bit :P

TVP one made me laugh a bit indeed. As for the Type 5 one. Well he is not right, but he is not wrong either. As most that complain about the Type 4/5 don't own it to know how useless it generally is on most maps. It's not a constant swing and hit. It's armor don't work as well as most want it to be on most maps. I got amazed every time I bounced more them my own HP on any non urban map. And as I did grind mine with the AP pre derp. Tho after the derp.. well.

I don't know how, I've been trying but nothing seems to work. Any ideas how to fix it ?

 

PS: Finally it worked, must have been something wrong with my PC or I don't know why there was so much white space.

He is wrong. Its a situational tank sure, but situational doesnt mean hard to play.  Thats a completely different thing. Even on open maps its easy to play. 

 

And i bet it still does better on those mapse than most heavys anyway.

Edit: how about the viewrange nerf tier 10 lights got just before release? Because why spot in a light tank, right? The UP result got a gun buff later because reasons...

"Type5 is hard to play" is extremely hard to beat.

 

As a bonus, you should add the famous lines we often hear from the support, about how they care and how they are thoroughly investigating things. Or maybe the comguys, who wanted to improve communication since years, when in reality it got worse.

Please do remember that nothing is set in stone until it is deployed on the live server and we are very interested to hear your feedback on the proposed changes.

 

There is a post with more information in the Supertest Information thread, we'd appreciate it if you gave it a read and gave us a response in that thread.

 Nothing is set in stone, except it totally is and we don't care about player feedback at all, even though we waste money on a test server from which we accept no feedback.

Have to go with the Type 5 line although the TVP  one is pure comedy gold.

Don't forget the evergreen 'Scheduled Server Maintenance' when one of the servers tips over. Totally planned that server going down, so planned they never have to announce their 'scheduled server maintenance' in advance to us.

 

Still 'Type 5 is hard to play' is very much the top of the line quote, with TVP beating defenders quote a good second.

 

Also on the Maus buff. Did you know they actually nerfed it a bit later. The fact people don't remember (nor raged) should tell you how 'significant' the nerf was (they reduced the rof, which I didn't mind tbh, as you got to turn away the turret face anyway between reloads)

That whole leopard fiasco haunts me still, playing leo1 extensively to 3mark it. I think it would be better if they simply removed it

I have to say...the TVP vs Defender comment has to be the most epic one.

 

I doubt they can top that ever. Then again...its WG.

Leopard 1 close to OP, TVP better than Defender, Maus was maybe slightly overbuffed, Type 5 is hard to play. Maybe it's time for WG to let insiders talk who actually play the game, or at least be up to date on what the ones who do play the game, have to say about it. 

 

My personal favorite has to be in the forum moderation this year. They do some stuff nobody would justify, and then give out warning points to those who point it out. Even this is risky: discussing forum moderation is "forbidden". Sounds to me like propaganda but hey, it's Wargaming.

I have another one, dnt remember the exact quote but it was something like this:

 

"Now that the 3 biggest problems of this game ( arty, MM, LT ) have been solved we can focus on new features to enhance your experience!"

 

Lol, completely solved ;)

Actually, I would like to dig up an oldy from 2012:

 

"The tables below feature the penetration data gathered by the Soviet tank forces during the WWII. Unlike some propaganda materials, these figures were used directly for military purposes such as the calculation (and subsequent construction) of the necessary protection level for Soviet tank armour plates."

 

Edit: I've not yet dug up the exact quote where Overlord states explicitly German guns have higher penetration in WoT than historically, but it can be derived from the blog already more or less. 

 

To understand the quote in its context, you'd have to check these links (and perhaps even then you might not understand its significance):

 

http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/145912-new-comparative-gun-penetration-data-from-overlords-blog/

 

http://overlord-wot.blogspot.de/2012/08/wot-digging-through-archives-some.html

 

I know Thread Title says 2017, and if OP feels my post does not belong here feel free to have it removed by moderators (or I can edit it myself of course). And to get back on topic, I would have to go with TVP first and Type 5 second. If only because I went through the gruesome task of stock grinding the TVP and I'm still not done (but only 6K more till Tier IX). The Leopard comment is rather epic as well though, and its inaccuracy (wrongness) clearly demonstrated by the lack of Leopards being played I would think.
