Aren't you curious to check out the entire Italian tech tree, though? :)

 

You guys are sneaky! Players like me well not get the tank because we can't finish the tier X mission or have the time to grind the xp, the player that can do it will be drawn to the test server to try the tank. They probably like the Italian tree and buy the premium at a discount (cuz missions). Is there anything else to it?

Is wargaing trying to stop some pople from completly finihing the mission but still buy the tank due to the discount?

by by wot....

make more and more bad changes and do not take into account the players' opinions. I expected version 1 in the hope that it would be much better ... nothing good, not even the graphics. Your problem is MM, maps and changes to tanks that you do in secret - including premium tanks.

Please, just nerf "gold ammo": if gold shell pens u get less xp / dmg dealt is smaller. Problem fixed!

 

 It will still only be aviable for players that sit on a mountain of credits. Problem not fixed!

My Saturday wake up make coffee make breakfast visit forum to see the latest player shenanigans, honestly it never gets old.

I recon wargaming gets the same kick out of it

 

Arty don't give a monkeys 9 times out of 10 you get killed by another tank type if I get killed by TDs or Heavy tanks and not by arty shouldn't I be complaining about them.

 

Premium ammo yep annoying isn't it well yes sometimes but its also useful if it gets changed to credits only they recon it makes them free to make changes they couldn't otherwise.

 

The really fun part is that from the forum you can see that the playerbase is split on both matters but people inevitably post as if they are right most people agree with them and its just a few who disagree with them.

 

Please don't stop though its very entertaining.

Hmm no mention of nerfing the 268v4... are you serious? Releasing a new branch before balancing the content that is in the game already?

 

Not to mention there are still no buffs/rebalancing (seen it in a video 2 years back what the hell happened to that?) being done to the:

 

IS-6

KV-5

JT8,8

KanonenJP

And half the tanks in the entire tech tree.

 

In other works the player who actually care about some balance in this game can go f**k themselves.  

 

Why don't you buff the AMX50B turret too so he can go face to face against a SwedeWagon in a HE shoot-out? Tier X that should be the pinnacle of the game is so atrocious to play nowadays words can't describe it, mediums and other tanks with unpennable turrets and weakspots that are now stupidly hard to hit that were FINE before the armor bloat flood that started happening.

From what i've seen WoWS is getting the same treatment, dumbing it down into something thats not fun to play anymore.

?????

 

It appears that the download link was not included in the portal article. We are sorry about this. We have reported this and link should be added to the portal articles soon. Meanwhile, you can use this link to download the CT or if you have the old version of the CT installed on your PC, you can use the launcher to update it to the new version.

"We disabled the sale of premium shells and consumables for ingame gold. We want to decrease their number in players' possession [..]"

 

I might be wrong on this one (I am judging based on my friends' habits), but players actually do not use gold to buy premium ammo/consumables instead of normal credits. This does not fix/change anything regarding the issues with premium ammo because it's still available anyway. So you could have been "working on other options" for the last couple of years, because the situation will still be the same even after this change.

 

On the other hand only 5% of shells fired are premium shells..

As it was announced by our developers in previous Q&A's, for the first step of the Premium Ammo changes, we will remove the gold price. Then after a while, we will apply the changes we are planning. Removing the gold price is just the first step of the changes.

i wonder one thing in this update ....

everything is fine except the premium shell balance... if you guys are going to limit them for the tanks that gona hit badly on low pen tanks very badly specially preferential matchmaking  tanks ... like T14 churchill III and ETC ( for example T 14 has the pen of the M3 lee and its premium pen is on par with with M4 sherman standard ammo for its top gun)....are you going to balance those tanks around those times as well??? because if those tanks dont get any change they are going to be a total waste of money and investment in future

please take these things into consideration for this update

Italian top tiers are a complete joke now, not even worth considering to grind them, lets see what changes will be made to them on 2nd test.

whut, they are quite good. Play them mainly as 2 shot autoloaders with the potential for a third or even fourth shell

I look at QB Stream and Italian tanks are very bad. These are not worth the development of tanks. 

 

Why all those tanks to bring the game?

ok let me explain, for example if you unload your full clip with tier 10 Italian tank, its reload gets ridiculously bad, in the same timespan T57 heavy, can reload TWICE. even if you unload only 2  shells, dpm is so bad its not even funny.

Why people asking these stupid question.

2. tanks will be buffed

Yup, this. Games need something to keep us coming back - and adding new tanks to be unlocked is pretty nice option. Lack of those was one of the reasons I've lost my interest in Armored Warfare - after few months of playing I've owned all the tier 10 vehicles. WoT wins here hands down - much more tanks offering unique playing styles - that's really nice thing.

 

Stuff like time-limited events offering nice rewards (like The Italian Challenge with Progetto tank / discount) are pretty OK way to keep players engaged  - I really liked the idea, too.

 

But in the same time WG makes everything they can to make self-respecting players quit the game on tiers 8+. Cheat-alike options like "press 2 to ignore enemy armor", that are abused so much (people who can afford it can shoot premium shells all the time). And then dropping tanks like Type 5 Heavy with 260mm "weak spots", resistant to normal shells (246mm in case of E100) - that's basically forcing us to use premium shells. Not to mention stuff like Type 5 Heavy shells - flat 27% damage increase when you can afford it... Balancing the game like that is basically calling us idiots in the face:

I have a slight problem with the tanks appearance. When I play in frontline sometimes the tank starts looking super weird, like all the HD features are gone and it almost looks like a single block with a stick as a gun.

played on Province few times now

didn't much like it - 2 big corridors where you climb towards enemy while the 'valley' below is 70% of completely wasted space AGAIN?

the valley floor is featureless a barren open area a Hugh kill zone, cannot understand this basic simplistic approach to map design

 

why with WOT map design is always 50-70% of total map area thrown away

also half of team cannot contribute as corridors are narrow and only few can fight at a time, sniping lol! any LT's in valley instand death so zero Sniping, any MT's or TD's trying to snipe are useless (on purpose WG? .... dumb :(

** WarGame simply do not care

which is why over time/ months/ years players simply leave the game a few return then see its as bad and broken as before then leave forever play better more interesting games

as when I first started playing the EU server weekends was 250k+ today on average its half of that, *WarGame not caring* cannot be good in the long term can it?

+1

 

You could also make premium ammo available to tier 1-8 only and thus giving players on high tiers their beloved end-game experience while giving lower tier players a chance to still deal some damage.

 

Or restrain premium ammo even more, to only specific tanks (of low tiers?).
