It's after all more important that people buy stuff then it is to solve age old issues like unbalanced premium ammo, botched MM templates (3-5-7), punishing platoons by giving them almost only bottom tier MM, over important of heavy armor, soapstone physics making tanks slide all over rocks even on flat ground and many many more issues.

 

Still, I guess changing the window dressing can be considered a step forward even though it adds nothing substantial.

I find the ability to view the equipment categories pretty good. I hate scrolling all those additional grousers, spall liner and other wet ammoracks that I never use.

BUT: did you just sneak in the idea of reducing equipment and consumable discounts from -50% to -20% or -30%? Please don't do this!

I don't like how real money items are in the same feature as in game items.

 

I especially don't like the 30% discount on consumables and equipment which used to be 50%.

 

I don't like the bundles for everything approach.

 

I don't like that its very slow (but this might just be the test client)

They haven't done it yet, have they? That might be the thing for me to give up on the game. Even more credit grinding, yep, that's fun in 3/5/7.

Wow.. so many things wrong with this game and you actually put human resources into something THIS useless.

I like the new in game store, it works seamlessly so far, and seems a lot better to me.

Not yet, only on testserver I think.

 

Might be a good idea, if you keep playing that is, to stock up on equipment and consumables if they happen to go on sale at 50% before the update.

Also annoying that you lose money if you buy on discount and then sell. It used to be same value so I simply bought everything I might need and just sell when credits are needed (like a savings account)

The game is suffering badly. So many game breaking issues yet good old WG just bothered about milking the EU region even more. This is a job for #wisemantis.

And why do people persist in believing that the SAME people are responsible for graphics, sound, 3d vehicle modeling, maps, mm algorithm, chat, promotions, customer service and videos? Wargaming does have more than one very overworked employee you know,

I don't think anyone believes that. However WG are singular. What happens in one department affects them all. It's not hard to understand.

What would REALLY be nice is the possibility to buy consummables or tanks or anything only buyable in-game from the mobile Wot Assistant.

 

Now you miss sales if you can't access the game itself : no internet, no pc or hollidays or whatever ...

This 'upgrade' (let's call it that for the sake of argument) looks questionable at best. The current garage interface is plenty usable and there are other, far more important issues that needs to be addressed, so the dev team spending 'months' for something like this makes me wonder where their priorities lie.

Also, I have a bad feeling about where this will go, I really hope I'm wrong but if it's true this will make the 'perfecting™ pref MM tanks' ****storm look like a nice chat among friends.

Really? Not how I read what you lot wrote. I don't see how the Marketing Dept effects MM, Maps and 3D Modeling dept's.

Channeling resources, time and money to things which really do not improve on existing problems or add anything that can really be called of value is wasting said money, time and resources.

So you're saying WG should fire all their PR, Marketing, Sound Engineers, 3d Modelers, Graphics Programmer's, Map Designers, Legal, Accounting etc and only hire MM Algorithm Programmers/Mathematicians and Programmers to work on chat issues? Seems like a really good business plan there.

 

Frankley I infinitely prefer the current MM, even when -2, to the previous where you could be stock and all other 29 players are +2 to you, and yes I've had that that happen to me in the Tiger, pre 88mml56 buff too.

Right. I'll simplify things for you. 

 

There's a restaurant you love. You eat there at least twice a week. After a while you notice the toilets have stopped getting cleaned. The urinals are blocked and the actual toilets are filthy. 

 

You bring this up and the manager tells you they've got a new specials board and even brought in a Michelin star chef to prepare it. 

 

Now even though the new specials might be the best cooked food ever you stop going to the restaurant because of the disgusting toilets. 

 

Now is that the chefs fault? No. But does it impact on the whole restaurant? Yes. 

 

Is that better?

No not at all, those people should be employed fixing the most glaring issues that have been with this game for years now.

- Sound engineers can get stuck fixing the issue where there is no sound when you are hit.

- Map designers should get stuck into creating maps which aren't a set of disguised corridors with no-mans-land around it.

- Programmers can get stuck into fixing the soapstone physics that cause tanks to spaz out when touching stone and spaz out even worse if this stone is on a slope.

- Map designers can then take these fixed physics and block off mountain goating paths instead of the current soapstone physics that are designed to discourage this which was a hatchet solution to begin with.

- 3D modellers can model new assets for new maps, new tanks and various other stuff which is actually needed.

- Accounting can indeed be fired because they are the ones causing all the push for money in this game which is causing it's gradual increasing decline. (Damage might not yet be visible at the moment but it's still being done regardless).

 

And yes, the new MM is better for sure in terms of balancing out teams. Problem is the main template they are using is utter garbage *AND* they still actively punish platooning by always making platoons bottom tier.

Thinking that WG is still spending money on specialized teams for all aspects of the game this many years in though. Can't say that I have seen anything that would suggest that would be the case. Maybe if they are all working at 5% or something.
