It needs some improvements yes but I hope they are not going to throw the baby out with the bath water.

If they are gonna change it they are going to have to figure out a good way to refund us all the xp and gold spent on crews.

No. But they don't care about what do we want.

 

I want to buy extinguiser directives at 2 bonds like before. It is not profitable to pay 20k credits. But they thought...

 

I am sure they will mess up If they change something which is fine...

Well as they stated no exp would be lost in the transition, it's very likely a case of refunding the exp amount for the new system, like they apparently did when they last changed the crew skills, they resetted peoples crews for free and they kept the exp. I doubt they will give gold refund or anything other than just exp.

I have never come across any other organisation with such an extraordinary ability to start with what is adequate and "improve" it to make it worse.

I personally do not want it reworked, I do not know why war gaming is continually trying to fix things that are not broken. Instead of reworking, how about just change the XP for anything above 5 skills because it takes 1000's of games to rank up.

Fix the hitboxes on the maps, bring back a few older maps like swamp, dragons ridge, pearl river and remove Ensk, Paris and that Chinese map no one likes.

 

I do not mind the AP buff and the Tank health buff, HE not sure, it may benefit myself but not sure its good for the game.


Remove stun from arty.

 

Educate the pubs because its the player base that makes this game rage-inducing, not the game!

 

I do not care about the EBR, 279e or any other tank that is OP, it's fun out playing the players in them tanks.

 

Then the game is pretty good!

I think what we see in operation here is Parkinson's Law:  "work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkinson%27s_law

 

There are a few hundred or maybe thousand WG employees, all of whom need to do something to justify their salaries.

 

I have the same experience in my day job, where there are tens of thousands of civil servants in Brussels and London whose main purpose in life appears to be to churn out endless quantities of new and silly rules and regulations for financial services in order to give the impression that they are doing something useful.

I like how especially with maps, not one were made better when they tried to fix them. Not a single one. 

 

And lets not forget the HD maps that broke hitboxes in every map in the game, and after how long now, those hitboxes remain to be broken.

There needs to be far more choice re crew skills imo, repairs, BIA, 6th sense is just too boring.

They did but also last time they kept the format of the crews the same and kept the old skills as an option so it was a simple like for like switch.

Then they would have another Super Pershing situation on their hands. I, and probably many others, have spent hundreds, maybe even thousands of gold on crew retraining and crew role changes. The crews don't need to be changed at all. Just make sixth sense a given skill to every commander.
