Time to make tiers 6-8 enjoyable again before you sell anything around those.

Make more aesthetic and cosmetics...

Stop selling tanks or at least just put them all in the game and premium shop and let them there!

(Sorry for the french post I am using both languages ...)

I recently bought the Thunderbolt and I am 100 % low tiers. Running all the time around the map to skip shots is unfun.

And if I am not arty focus I end in front of an unpennable tiers 8.

I don't even know if a good game is possible in full tiers 6.

WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ?!?

 

Joe Ekins wasn't a tank commander, he was a tank gunner (later radio operator). He might have been the one firing the shots that killed german tank ace Michael Wittmann from his Sherman Firefly (there are other candidates). But his total wartime 'score' was four, which certainly doesn't make him a tank ace.

 

Here, please read the Tank Museum's article, it is after all supported by World of Tanks:

Sorry u'll translate.

Nan c bon, j ai acheté le Thunderbolt et 100 % low tiers ça gave grave. Courir partout comme un lapin pour éviter les tirs c'est fun.

Surtout que ça fini régulièrement en 1v1 avec un tiers 8 complètement invulnérable à tous les tirs.

Quand je n'ai pas été focus par les 3 (plutôt 6) arties.

Je ne sais même pas si en full tiers 6 ce serait jouable. Enfin je parle d'une bonne partie, pas de juste survivre.

 

I thought so too.

I don't get why they missed a chance to give this it's real life "additional" armour and toughen up the hide a bit. 

 

 

I mean common wargaming we know the firefly is crap because it can't bounce shots, you had a chance to make a unique premium with a unique look and instead you just copy paste the tech tree.

That is a lot of spare tracks they carry with them.

Firefly is an ok tank the entire point about it is its a sherman with a somewhat better gun its not amazing just a slowish medium with ok armour for its tier.

Had they made the armour better then it would have been a premium version of a standard tank that was better and players complain about that.

Premiums which are pretty much copies of standard versions are a good idea they are akin to the cosmetic changes some players say wargaming should be doing.

 

Yes 3 5 7 needs changing Its not that the numbers are wrong its perfectly reasonable for me as a tier 6 to be in a game with Three tier 8 tanks, Five tier 7 tanks and Seven tier 6 tanks as long as I am also top tier as much as I am bottom tier.

Firefly in a game of tier 4 5 and 6 is a lot of fun, well for the firefly owner.

I do have it, and the [edited]tank as well but #walletclosed, and as someone else mentioned you had the chance to make the VC something special but was to lazy to do so.

 

However......

 

if you were to release some more new tanks from the game files like the newly released Brit heavy, it might be prised open.

 

Tanks such as these.....(hope the link works:teethhappy:)

mate

that ship sailed years ago

WG have released so many OP tanks since 2016 that now today 'making normal balanced Premiums' is simply a marketing fail (see how many "Caernarvon Action X" Wargame sell in bundles or alone

in the premium Shop - not many!

 

its truly feeble 20 pounder with 230 alpha will be a 'poor seller' outside of the UK and even we Brits aren't that impressed with 230 alpha (no matter its DPM)  and only the turret is good, rest is meh!

  v the T8 Soviet 'Defender' 440 alpha with almost T9 ~ T10 armour (which was sold/ designed to hold its own v T9 ~ T10 Tanks ~ the British T8 Caernarvon Action X is not, big difference one is a winner, other is meh!

 

we the players are now used to and want Premiums that are 'OP' ~ thanks to Wargame €€€ greed were used to it and now expect it as normal
