I understand that all the feedback you get may feel a bit overwhelming and might be hard to process all at once so I'll make it simple[removed]:

 

DO NOT DO IT.

eekeeboo is NOT presenting his opinion here. He is presenting the upcoming changes and how you should approach it to get the best out of it.
With that said I hate most of these changes except giving low tier more HP.

He talks bollocks. The new tech trees seem empty and illogical with unnecessary and inexplainable holes and voids. Nothing to do with refinement or a cleaner design.

If they really wanted to make it cleaner they should have simply visually reorganised the mess they had created.

All they would have had to do was to separate the prems from the tech trees, and align the tiers, but noooo.

 

They decided to hide the low tiers, because skipping elementary math will speed up your advancement during middle school & university.

Lulz. Wg logic never fails to amuse me. Tier V is full of seasoned freebie farmers, and starting a new playstyle there is NOT rewarding.

 

I would rather make a copy of WoT, remove all the tanks from the game and replace them with 6 generic tier X tanks with "funny memes", rainbow skins, unicorns and all the c**p the new target audience finds interesting. For a few months. At best. Then they will return to fortnite and the other fast paced, simple shooters with more colours and more "fun". Because they care neither about tanks, technology or history.

 

Sorry if I was rough and a jerk, but I have wanted to write this down since this idea first appeared.

Ok, Wargaming.

 

You claim to listen to your community.

 

Who the hell gave you the following feedback : All regular tanks lose HE pen (except KV2) , but SPG keep it.

 

Go ahead, I'm waiting. I can't wait to know who wants that.

Dear WG let me walk you true the changes:

 

+ Hp changes are kinda good especially on low tiers.

+ standard ammo doing bit more dmg then "speshul" ammo.

+ arty AP dmg is low so i guess not much more broken then now

+ EBR 105 HE pen is 0 that make this tank less broken so good thing i guess

 

+/- "simple" tech tree not a game breaking thing but why???

 

 

- Blanket nerf to HE is just stupid and kill some derp dependent tank without giving them other choice then use "spehul" ammo...

- "special" ammo still cost much more then regular... WHY?

- arty keep pen on HE again WHY?

- KV2 still have  pen on HE many people argue KV2® its the reason but in same time all premium tanks get 0 pen HE so....

- many tanks loose that special flavor with high pen HE for soft targets like blackdog, HWK 30 or 105 meds that used to have ~100 pen on HE 

 

HE/HESH changes should never go live with this values. Not without making AP on that guns usable. Rework this guns or scrap HE/HESH changes.

I never use HE except on the KV-2, and I don't use gold ammo either, so I don't care about any of these changes. The one thing I hate is the removal of the majority of low tier tanks.

I have fooled around on sandbox server for two days and IMO HE changes should be cancelled, just leave it for some future update.  I had some ridiculous games against Tier 9 and 10 tanks  in my Lansen C  the gun rolls often over 400 (DPM 3140 but in reality it's higher than that)  and with my SU - 130 PM 3 shots 2050  damage....I stopped playing with it after that - it's just ridiculous.

Hey everyone,

I highly recommend installing the Special Test Client and giving it a try before complaining here. As this is a public test, you can participate and share your opinion.

Please remember to stay constructive to help improving the game.

Those tanks won't be removed but only moved away from the regular tech tree to a special tab for collector vehicles. Check out the article for all the details. ;)

So these monkeys nice thinking ppl force us to use more premium ammo. Here goes to where sun never shine this "free to play" game and welcome pay to win game. Do you even care of eu opinion and not only ru one? I know I`m a cow and all eu server are milk cows but without our money what do you do? US server is going to die, EU one soon after this changes.

I am sorry mate, but I believe everyone is quite familiar with the changes even without trying the test server.

WG for one more time proved that they don´t care about the public opinion.

These changes will be the end of the game we once loved.

 

My message to all WOT players is to start searching for a different game, this one is closing soon.

Who complained about HE? By nerfing them you make the game even more boring. A lot of tanks are balanced and exciting because of them. There are a lot of cases in the game now where HE shells are a risk with great reward. Lower tiers on test server now even more boring.

I don't see why the KV-2 is a special case, when tanks with the same gun have 0 pen HE. Either remove for all or remove from none.
