Nebylo by lepší dát nám českou verzi článku? Ne že bych nějak trval na detailech, ale možná by to někoho potěšilo víc 

 

Translation - Wouldn't it be better to give us a Czech version of the article? Not that I insisted on details, but maybe it would please someone more

Tohle je anglická sekce Spratkku :(

 

Za chvilku to napravíme, omlouvám se za zmatky.

Dear tankers,

Some of you might currently be experiencing technical issues with the survey due to a high number of simultaneous requests to the service. Anyone experiencing this problem will be able to return to the survey in a second moment. We understand the situation and we will keep you informed as soon as the situation stabilizes. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

And I was so looking forward to Death Star and FV4005 nerfs. What a disappointment.

Praise be!

 

The most negative feedback was around the HE shell changed and it *looks* like those ideas have been shelved!

One thing can be said for sure, armor-piercing shells turned out to be ineffective and undesirable in the shell paradigm currently tested on Sandbox.

It is already clear that the new paradigm of shells and the reworked HP pool of vehicles, together with the mechanics of HE shells and SPG rebalance, require further improvements and are not ready for release in their current shape.
 
Excellent.

"If these changes go into the main version, these vehicles, including those of Tier VI–X, will be accessible and available for purchase with credits. There’s no need to rush into researching these vehicles as you will be able to buy them at any time after the potential update goes live."

 

So does this mean that we will actually be able to buy the tier X tanks without researching them after the update? Is there any point in trying to research and buy them right now?

Hi

Do I get a notification in game for the survey? I don't have it?

I'm confused, the article talks about thanking us for filling the survey but I never got to do any survey? Where does one access it? Did I miss out on it???

We could finnaly have so much needed buff of AP shells and arty stun or dmg nerf. But we wont because unwanted HE rework and unnecessary arty AP addition are not working:facepalm:. Please, give us what you have:

1. More HP on low tiers (hopefuly will be live before christmas)

2. If you want, also give us that low tier tech tree tank whatever thing (I dont think it bothers that many players, espacialy in comparison to ammo rebalance)

3. Buff HP of all tanks as you intended (about 20%), buff AP and HE dmg +25% and let them have penetration

4. Give arty special HE +20% dmg (to compensate for HP increase) and remove stun from them, leave standard arty HE as they are now

5. Decrease armor of commander  and driver hatches on tanks which have 250+ armor on them

Resulst:

less special ammo spam = more skill needed

more aiming needed = less counter strike accuracy full HEAT chieftains

balance not touched = balance not broken

arty player have to think = less dmg or stun

From this news post it looks to me like you are saying that new ammo and HP rebalance will come no sooner than in autumn... Thats absolutely discourageing:( Many players are only playing because they hope that these changes are now really close... WG is talking about new balance for at least 1 year really seriously and if you postpone this update any further I expect to see lot of disappointment in the comunity.

Please, give us what you have, its better than nothing!
