I'm curious, what does the community want? A stable gaming experience or more tanks, nations and whatnot?

 

I think WG should focus all their manpower on ironing out the bugs in the game, at least for one patch, rather than having one team work on bugfixes, while another team works on new content which more often than not brings MORE bugs for the bugfix team to work on...

 

:mellow: vvvvvvvvvvv

No artillery would be nice.

No game will be bug-free. It's impossible. However, they definitely should focus on better balancing of the vehicles as there are many lines in the tech tree which are currently useless and there is no reason to play these.

Fix that sound bug.

 

It's just woeful a supposed 1.0 game has such a glaring issue.

 

Until then I'll just curse WG in my LT everytime I take silent hits whilst trying to dodge incoming.

What about more game balance? That is what I would really want. The few bug the client have are just a bit annoying, but not as annoying as OP tanks without weackspots.

Yeah, I would like to see some balance changes as well. Apart from Bobject nerf and Object 430 II changes (might as well call it a nerf tbh), we haven't had any balance changes since 9.22. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if the Pref MM changes comes on next patch or a patch after, though. But there are still some changes I would like to see at higher tiers. Please fix the 430U and match it up against heavies like it should be (and nerf the cupolas).

Well, with this game being over 7 years old and in active development now, bugs aren't surprising and no amount of bugfixing will realistically sort it out. Would be good to see stuff like the rock outlines fixed, cause damn, that's frustrating. All in all I think the number of actual bugs is not that big, not nearly big enough to warrant shifting teams around. It's not like you can put a guy from one team in the other without a certain amount of training and adjustment. Probably a lot of them don't even have the right skills. At the moment the state of the game is not bad enough to start doing something that radical.

New content, especially more new maps like Studzianki,Pilsen,Minsk those maps reminds me the good old TD meta, really good for vision control.

Otherwise I dont really care for the new content, however most players do, u want proof?

Fine, before new polish tanks there was lot less player, with the polish tanks there are so many players coming back, as long as new content coming out the game is alive and well.

Bug fixes are should be strictly bug fixes, and not rebalancing which destroys games

Going by what WG said on tankfest. I suspect low to mid tier balance will be in focus more so then new content for the rest of the year. And ofc the map hitboxes that they did also mention. Tho there are new maps on the way that I suspect will appear now and then as new content. So I'm actually in favor of that. 

 

But I suspect most of the staff that makes new content can't fix most of the bugs anyway regardless if they broke it or not. So no need to stop making new content. As was proven with the massive bug on WOWS that took 5 months to fix. They even made a video about that bug. And then the team that added the content that broke the game code... was not a coder. So they had no idea what they had done until later. 

 

Tho... knowing what to look for don't always help either. Take Gearbox's Aliens game. AI on that was broken as all heck, and they did try to fix it. Years later a player studying the code found a typing error. That basically told the AI how to behave in the hallways etc. But since the word hallway was a typo. The AI locked up and did nothing or reacted to anything in them.

remove stun mechanic from arty-this is the one thing that will eventually stop me playing (and giving you money WG, lots and lots)

Neither: A community patch.

 

There should be a patch where WG focus only and solely on the problems the community mentions. But the stuff that can be address and not fantasy stuff (remove/limit arty; buff my tank, etc)

OP, you make it sound like the game is full of bugs. 

Apart from the hitsounds bug (occasionally) and chat bug (occasionally), I can't remember any. 

And there is no reason why we can't have both bug fixes AND new content in a patch, because it is done by different people/departments.

Never trust the community, they dont know whats wrong with the game. Wasnt the another tank game died because they listened to the playerbase?

Indeed.

Which is why I mentioned "stuff that can be addressed". IE the suggestions that are sound and reasonable. Sound bug, Frontline are two of them. Balancing is more complicated.

Fix the artillery and focus on balancing the tanks and the matchmaking. 

 

I think if you do those three the community will be very happy and if succeeded alot and alot of players will return

BOTH

I would like WG to run a one month experiment of improved team balance, i.e. the matchmaker tries to balance personal rating between teams.
