Hello fellow tankers,

Apart from all the problems in this game, I wanted to talk about one of them:

We all know there are lots of overpowered and underpowered tanks. It seems (to most of us) that there is no real logic behind the nerfs and buffs, devs buff tanks which don't really need to be buffed, nerf tanks which don't need to be nerfed, they have no clue what the priorities are, and when they actually do something useful, they somehow f*** up most of the times ( look at the T110E5 which is useless now, look at the "nerfed" obj268v4 or type 4/5 heavy).

I was thinking, wouldn't it be nice if they added some sort of calendar with periodic tanks balancing? For example, every (idk) 3-6 months they look at a line, they do minor changes to every tank if needed, maybe they could make periodic polls on the forums to see which lines are the most urgent and decide based upon the community suggestions. Like this, even if they make no changes to a tank, or leave an OP tank as it is, we know that EVENTUALLY it will be looked at, and maybe we could know exactly when they will look at it. 

I feel like right now the problem is that we don't even know if they are looking at tanks like [insert random UP/OP tank], maybe they are ignoring those tanks. With this system, they will check every single line periodically. 

 

What do you think? Any ideas?

It would be goo if they react to customer's feedback a little faster. 3 - 4 years faster should do it. :coin:

IMO WG should do balancing patch quite often, with really minor changes every time. Have some frinds who play LoL and they said they have a balance patch every  week there. WoT could be a quite nice e-spot if the devs manage to balance it well. This require a balance team working continuosly and patching every tank every few weeks.

IMO we should have a rolling CTE server which they update with balance changes, people give feedback and they roll them out as mini-patches.

This works because in LoL you can buy the champ that could be OP at the moment right away, and it is not beneficial to RIOT.

In WOT you have to research that OP tank and that take time, and makes WG money if you pay premium time or use "special" ammo more to reach that tank.

It is business sense.

They already do this, they release a new T10 that overperforms. They put one or two absolutely awful vehicles on the way to the tier 10 so people spend free xp to get the T10. Then they nerf the tier 10 after 6-12 months and 2 years later they buff the free xp sinks.

This has nothing to do with what I wrote,  this is just taking shots at WG

I know, just IMO is not a well tought business choice to keep vital the game...
