… there's as many wheeled vehicle threads choking up the forum as arty threads now.

 

Or change the name of the arty pinned thread to the 'arty and wheeled vehicles' thread. :P

indeed, that would be awesome. Not just 1 comedy thread, but 2.

Somewhere else for all those comments to rot and make it far easier for mods to simply close threads and redirect. It sounds like a great idea.

Better all that repetition is in one place than spread out all over the place. I'm willing to bet most forum users don't want to see half the subforum endlessly recycling the same 2 issues.

Hello, 

 

It would be possible, but at the same time, wheeled vehicles are not at the extent a continual discussion like matchmaker or artillery for instance. There are those who feel strongly for or against and many who don't care. 

 

Cheers

eek.

Sounds like he thinks the issue will die away, I have my doubts, when were wheeled vehicles released? Regardless of the merits of the arguments, I certainly feel like I've been reading: WV are impossible to hit, their autoaim is too good, they ruin the game for LTs, they need to be nerfed... etc over and over again. I think a deadline needs to be drawn when we conclude that it is indeed a continual discussion.

Sure, just store all the hate in single threads so that the problems and complaints will be less visible and we will have a clean forum for our "perfect" game. What is a forum for anyway?

Spamming the forums is like people marching on the streets. It's the only way to get some attention.

When you pin major problems to single threads you're doing more harm than good.

Theres no evidence anyone beyond moderators read the forum let alone get influenced by it. On the one or two occasions I've seen a moderator say they will pass a suggestions on it certainly hasn't been a 'copy and paste' arty or WV thread, it's been a legit idea with a bit of originality. And on the off chance anyone from WG did look at the forum for arty input the first place they'd go would be the pinned thread, not endlessly combing through a backlog of dead threads, the same would be true of WV if a pinned thread existed.

You may think its a 'protest on the streets' but the only people on those streets are a tiny handful of the same players that walk past the protestors every single day and hear them say the same old stuff.

eek is wrong. As always. Just like he never learned to play warplanes 1,9.

I voted yes.

Why?

Because WG's worst ideas all have their thread already. this will be some sort of recognition.

The forum is just a pile of ignored customer feedback, putting the unread feedback into single post has no logical plus point for us or them. You either close all the wv threads and direct them to the ignored post in the ignored forum or you just leave the posts... meh

Its still ignored, just as the arty one is.

When we have stooped to creating polls on how ignored posts should be dealt with... it does seem like a organising the deck chairs on the Titanic moment does it not?

Eek pretty much told you that the forums arent really relevant when they were askkng for a new deck chair attendent :)

And i'm willing to bet most WoT players would rather see those 2 issues taken care of, instead of the threads about them being dumped into a useless sticky just to make it easier for WG to listen to the players' feedback ignore the obvious problems that break the game.

 

Disclaimer: just to make things clear, i don't think wheelies are gamebreaking in randoms (the premium EBR is in FL mode tho). But if a massive part of the player base does think so, i'll bow to that.

Artillery, on the other hand, is a broken mechanic, gamebreaking beyond belief in all game modes except for CW and SH.

Too many conflicting interests for these 2 issues to ever be considered 'resolved'. God knows why people think having multiple threads that slide into obscurity days after they are created have any more impact than writing your bit into a dedicated thread is beyond me.

It is not so that the threadstarter are spamming here.
Normally they make only one thread about Wheeled Vehicles here.
 
On the other hand, there are always the same people, spamming in every single of the threads.
Wouldn't it be better to silence them instead?
Paradoxically, it is this group of spammers that calls for a pinned thread.

 

This poll can be closed. Because we already have a poll:

Restrict Discussion of Wheeled Vehicles to One Pinned Thread

Well I certainly don't spam into WV threads and neither does the OP of your linked thread so that total rubbish.
