Hey guys,

 

wargaming gives us a big surprise! The next update will finally fix an urgent issue with the game everybody was waiting for. The issue was troubling everybody and the priority was set really well by WG:

 

We gonna get SHOP 2.0!!!!

 

And because WG is so proud and excited about it they even forgot to post a "Discuss in Forum" link in the update News page (Official Statement), so I thought I'd open a post in order for you to cheer for WG finally adressing and fixing the important game issues. Really what we all wanted!

 

Discuss :trollface:

:popcorn:

Certainly a welcome improvement, even though there are bigger issues in other places...

 

Maybe once they run out of things to "modernize" they'll start improving core gameplay. :trollface:

By the time they run out of things to modernize, they'll need to re-modernize the first stuff they modernized :trollface:

I doubt any of the staff wasted to make that have anything to do with the MM, power creep, class fixes or even the chat issues etc. As some always make it seem like they do when WG does something like this. I suspect the only thing they pulled was the UI team that... already did such a great job on the mission UI's to confuse ppl. 

 

 

But as they have changed every UI besides the depot and store. I kinda expected them to do this soon to make it on pair with the rest. If it's as confusing for most remains to be seen.

If its as good as their improved 'Mission' interface none of us will know what we are buying ever again.

Whilst this is funny, there is something interesting about it IMO.

 

It looks very similar to the WOWs thing (can;t remember the name of it) and where you can buy stuff with free XP and their new currencies coal and steel. 

 

Now, what is interesting to me is in that article to test this 'shop 2.0' they are giving you free XP, now I am only speculating here but this might be preparing the way for them to sell tanks both for Bonds and for free XP. 

 

As WOWs has several premium ships you can buy with free XP (Missouri, Musashi, Nelson, Kronstadt etc.) and several ships that are basically CW and Ranked reward ships you can buy with Steel (which IIRC is only available from playing CWs and Ranked)

 

So maybe we are going to see tanks available to buy with free XP and/or bonds.

Such a usefull change... considering I used the store just a couple of time in all my WoT career, they could simply remove it and I wouldn't notice any differences...

They just put premium store inside the game and made interface touch-friendly just like mission tab... Newsflash: mouses are accurate so we don't need giant buttons. In fact, interface like this makes things harder since it takes more space and there is more menus to navigate.

 

I just hope new filters are more useful and we can finally see a list of compatible vehicles for equipment so you can finally easily buy suspension modules for vehicles you don't have yet.

Yeah, and how would you buy equipment and consumables during sales then?

to be honest with you

I don't buy consumables, just sold them from the depot when I have a surplus from the mission. And I buy equipment directly on the tank I want to equip. I only equip keepers, so I can wait a discount to pimp them up, and vents on LTs, but that's cheap, so not really a problem...

So, you think they should design the shop for you, rather than the vast majority who bulk buy everything at 50% discount so they can have every tank equipped and if they need the credits just sell back anything for what they paid for it.

 

Quite how you play without consumables is beyond me though.

 

As for the change, nice to see the depot moved out of the in game store.

No, I didn't say that. I said that I care so much about the shop that, if it got removed, I won't notice it. 

And, apart from people buying stock of premium consumable or equipment, some feature are redundant. For example module and tanks can already be bought from the tech tree (from my personal experience I guess this is the most common way to buy them and the more user friendly too) so I don't get why they put those in the shop at first...

 

About consumable, I supposed it was refered to premium one.

They sure know how to prioritize, their scrum meetings must be hilarious.

Huh, that's great info that I had no clue about. Gives hope I'm not hording bonds for nothing.

I ain't testing a thing until I see that I can buy the Death Star or Panzer VII E-100 with Bonds.

Yeah the important thing in life, selling more stuff.

 

Not fixing age old issues like premium ammo or recently overpowered premium tanks, or the ebola 3-5-7 MM template for that matter.
