WTF wargaming? you deliberately trying to kill all MOD's in the game? 

because I can't see no other reason for all this micro patches every week that change nothing except killing XVM and mods.

Sounds like a good plan, it's just unfortunate that it hasn't worked yet.

Oh no! Who is going to close all the Arty/MM rant threads if they do that?

 

Save our MODS.

You don't need mods, anything you'd realistically need is already in the game, the rest is window dressing.

 

XVM is a blight on this game and it would be great if it was completely removed from within matches, it's fine to have that stuff in the garage but it has no business within actual battles as it only causes unwanted griefing for both the worst and the best players.

To be honest, I wouldn't mind if they just stopped all the mods from working. To me they yield more negative than positive things - and not only because I play vanilla.

8 out of 10 times all it takes is renaming the mods folder to have them working again.

don't want XVM don't install it, same goes for mods.

as for me, I refuse to play without XVM and my favorite "window dressing".

I want to know with and against how (skill wise) I play and because WG stock "window dressing" sucks.

 

any way if they're killing XVM for me it would be the last drop in a long line of disappointment.

Exactly - no release notes, no list of changes, just a number change in the version.

Your complaining about killing XVM? Can't come soon enough if you ask me.

Indeed. Than it's just play without them and wait for an update. But it is not as much as the OP tries to make us believe.

 

I just renamed my mods folders after the update from this morning and it is all working fine.

I suspect you would be one of few that would be upset about it. 5 years ago half the forum would go nuts if they lost it. Today? less so, as vanilla is the new mod everyone likes.

If "killing mods" in fact means killing illegal mods, then that is fine with me.

If WG added the following 3 things into the default client I would not use mods at all:

1. Auto Equipment return

2. Better contour icons (the default ones suck)

3. Default Zoom/sniper start point. (I push a button to switch between sniper and arcade view and I prefer it to always start at x2 when I go into sniper mode not go to the last zoom setting).

 

Add those 3 into the game and I would have no issues at all with WG then locking out all mods and XVM can go and die in a corner like it deserves. Ok I admit I'd miss the gun sound mods but they are not essential.

Saw the thread title and did wonder if this was a reason WG struggle to recruit good moderators.
