While contemplating on the contemplation throne an idea struck me and I had to share it.

 

Why don't WG make it so that certain "annoying" game features are disabled during certain days (or for a few hours).  For example:

 

- No arty Tuesday (this could be at all tiers or a specific tier each week)

- No special ammo Wednesday

- No derp Thursday

- +1/-1 Friday

- Overpower free Saturday

- All of the above Sunday

 

It would be a good way for them to gather data on the impact of certain balance issues and allow players to see if removal of certain "annoyances" really does have an impact on their gaming experience

 

Just throwing the idea out there so that it can be trolled, made fun of, shot down in flames, told in detail why it would never work or otherwise discussed.

Yeah i’d like that! That’s actually a good idea! Though you’d probably have to rebrand the idea because I don’t think wg will admit having “annoying features” and op tanks. Could be on just select servers too, e.g. eu1.

Friday is Fish day in many households, so would that be Dinger's Only Day? - Just asking.  :hiding:

Well, they could rebrand it as "balance study days" and could determine the tanks to restrict on Saturday based on statistics from the previous week for "overperforming" tank.

I'm afraid Fridays will have to be open to everyone, but maybe everyone can be considered as a temporary Dinger for a day.

The real question is, would any Dinger show up to play on Wednesday?

Nah, arty free day would be at least 100 times better.

 

Also with that post that day can’t be today.

No, of course not - that would be in breach of clan rules!  :facepalm:

Like the idea, but the true implementation will be:

 

- All premium Tank Monday

- Only prem account Tuesday

- No open tickets Wednesday

- Make a purchase Thursday

- All special ammo Friday

You have the alliteration all wrong....

 

Make (a purchase) Monday

Total Tuesday (bonus for purchasing a premium tank, filling it with premium ammo and giving it an a-historical camo, then drowning it within the first minute of play then quitting play for the rest of the day)

Wet Wednesday (Double xps if you drown!)

Thankful Thursday (no tickets)

Flashy Friday (bonus for using an a-historical camo)

Sane Saturday (double xps for not playing at all! :D

Superior Sunday (bonus for firing nothing but premium ammo)

Maybe an optional "rotten sprouts" special ammo to replace the normal special ammo on Wednesdays to avoid an impact on player numbers

:amazed:

 

.......Oh, I've got good ideas, actually:

 

- Money Monday -----------> 2x credit income

- Two-for-Tuesday ---------> 2x Crew XP gain

- Welding Wednesday ----> 50% off tank repairs

- Thunder-free-Thursday -> no arty allowed

- Free Friday ----------------> 2x Free XP gain

- Service Saturday ---------> 50% off consumables

- Super Sunday -------------> ALL OF THE ABOVE^

 

:ohmy: Ain't this lit?!

How can they force you to waste first aid kits without stun?

 

You know in 7 years I got hundreds of those unused, now I need to use 3 / match :coin:

I love the money-monday, two for tuesday..... idea as well
12:52 Added after 1 minute
I'm sure they could adjust the RNG to ensure that their rate of repair kit, fire extinguishers and other consumables dont suffer from the idea

While some might love this. Others might find no reason to play on Sunday etc for WG to feel it's worth it. As in alienating some parts of the player-base. As their derp only tank can't be grinded that they have yet to elite. Or they can't grind credits in the only tier 8 prem they have that is the IS-3A or Defender. Or they have the worst stock grind in the game, and they can't grind it two days a week as they can't use "special ammo" to even pen equal tier targets. 
 

Or why by a premium tank you can't use twice a week?

Balcora, 

In answer to your worry, they could always just implement it on one of the two servers so that people who want to play with the standard configuration still have the chance to use their premiums, arty, etc.

 

Of course, if they see that the standard server is empty regularly on "no arty day" or some other day of the week then it would send WG a pretty strong message

This would require that WG accepts that there are annoying features in the game. Remember how quick WG was to accept the fact that there was a problem with arty? I mean it only took them a few years and 6.4 billion forum posts before even admitting to it. Then it still took them ages to do something about it (not saying their solution was any good, but at least they finaly tried to adress the problem).

 

It simply wouldn't make any sense for them from a PR viewpoint. An advertising slogan like "There are plenty of really annoying things in our game, but hey at least we give you a few days off where we remove these annoyances." simply wouldn't work.

 

What WG needs to do is adress the problems swiftly instead of letting them fester for years while also pretending that there is no problem at all. But as long as there are enough ppl mindlessly throwing their money at WG to make the game slightly less annoying they won't change. It's your money that decides what WG does, and apparantly the current annoyances make WG lots and lots of money. You can't blame a company for taking the money if the playerbase is dumb enough to give it to them.

 

I stopped playing because the playerbase keeps rewarding WG for introducing poop to the game, with the playerbase cheering them on for it. Everyone whines about the OP tanks, but hey, as soon as these things are in the shop, there's plenty of ppl lining up to buy them.

 

The playerbase is just as guilty, if not more than WG itself.
