Hello fellow commanders, about the “Workshop” idea that was just " mentioned ", lets ay it like this , in a recent Q&A ( Source : https://thearmoredpatrol.com/2019/12/18/world-of-tanks-end-of-the-year-event-qna-session/ ;) , what do you guys think ? Seems like a good idea actually, im curiuos what the drop rate of the components would be ,and why they didnt implement this earlier....

 

MfG,

L.

Decreasing the number of low tier tanks is a bad idea I think. Also the crew rework. 

In my opinion FL should be a permanent game mode, or grand battles at tier 8. I really enjoyed those and I think they were popular among the community, so I don't understand why they want to decrease the number of FL sessions.

10th birthday - I'm expecting for some great (free) stuff, maybe sales of rare tanks.

Pearl river return is good but I'm not interested in this Berlin map. Another city map... Why don't they rework Stalingrad then, it was already a better map than ensk/minsk/paris/ruinberg. Dragon ridge should return as well.

New lines - Japanese TDs are interesting but I would like to see a Hungarian tech tree instead of Italian heavies or more wheelies - it is only my personal opinion.

I like that quote:

 

– In addition to the two maps already announced for random battles in 2020 (Pearl River, Berlin), we have nothing more.

 

"In addition, we have nothing"

Clearly WG is catering to F2P grinders..

 

Honestly don't get the point of doing that except alienating the wallet warriors like me...

T9 and T10 struggle when the T8s are all away enjoying single tier FL

 

Preferential MM T8s are also on WoTs watchlist, I use mine a lot to avoid T10s

 

It looks like feeding toxic Tier10 is still a priority for WoT, ugh

There were a lot of players that felt that FL was a grind in the end. I assume that the European forums were not alone in that observation. Considering the amount of complaints about wheeled vehicles and the lack of maps in FL I read, it's no great surprise I suppose.

I expected as much. Testing new modes usually presents a manageable grind, the next year edition is an obnoxious grind. It was the case with Frontline. Basically they are implementing their grind until you pay business model in any game mode. After you have a nice account, all the tanks that you want to play in random/team battles, they try to ram more grindy stuff up your throat, because $$$. That's what I don't like about WG. I accept that I need to pay. But I would like to see more investment in the core of the game, not in schemes of how to milk players more.

 

Oh, I forgot. The last nasty scheme I've heard about is that they are going to link frontline and steel hunter progression together. I mean last year after I finished frontline, I said never again. They got word of it, next year they say, if you want steel hunter rewards, you also need to play frontline, sucker. I mean why??? Why??? Why would I play frontline, when I'm only interested in steel hunter? Because reasons.

Did you bother to read the article? It stated that they will be linked together but you are free to just play steel hunter and ignore FL, or the other way around, and get all the rewards anyways. You are not forced to play FL, so there is no point to spread this misinformation.

What I'm concerned with is the fact that whiners seem to be winning:

 

Block Quote

– About Frontlines this year: yes, maybe we went too far and there were too many episodes. Next year there will be fewer.

 

– The number of turbo (15-0) battles will be dealt with using various tricks with the balancer and a number of other things. Two times more in total as all measures are introduced. And that seems to be the ceiling. But sometimes it happens that one team sucks, and the other is playing well, and nothing can be done about it.

 

FL episodes are getting fewer because people whined about them instead of ignoring them if they didn't want to play them.

 

15-0 results have never been even a common sight and to artificially get rid of them just to please the whiners... I do not like it.

Removing content and not replacing it is a very bad idea (low tier cull).

As is doing what they plan to do with crews.

Just my opinions tho.

Actually I did. There are going to be rewards for playing just one of the modes, and a separate combined progression. Now the question is where are the MAIN rewards. If the big rewards are on the combined path, then there is a problem for those tired of FL. Also, you can shove your sarcasm you know where. Thanks.

 – Next year, each episode of the Front Line will be more self-sufficient. And even if you only play Steel Hunter, you can get all the rewards. The rewards will be new. Steel Hunter and Frontlines will have a single progression, which will last a whole year with common rewards. However, playing all episodes or forcibly playing only the Frotnlines will no longer be necessary. You can play only in Hunter or Frontlines and collect all the rewards.

 

That awfully sounds like I can choose which mode I will play and still collect all the rewards.

Overall good news, but I wish all this development time was used

to alter all the tanks so they all perform at around 50% winrate.

 

So many tanks that under perform become just as viable to play.

And all OP tanks get dragged down to the performance level of all other tanks they face.

 

i do see what they are trying to do.

they are trying to improve the new player experience.

To that I think many players will say - they will have no more premium account either then. 

 

More and bigger maps is one of the things that this game does need.
