This system will be "integrated" in a Commander, who basically represents an entire crew.

Oh come on, give it a chance. :P We will test this, let you test it, and maybe you're going to like it better. :)

Do you plan to “pardon” banned players at the 10th Anniversary of World of Tanks?
Yes, we do, but we are not yet ready to disclose the details about which players and violations will be "pardoned".

Nope, sorry. I am not liking this now and never will. Tanks have a tiny crew from 2 to 6 and it should just stay that way.

Like the shell rebalance was "well recieved"? I doubt that, tbh. Also, from now on retraining crews or spending crew books/fxp will most likely be a bad idea considering that everything we do from now on can be a complete waste.

"This system will be "integrated" in a Commander, who basically represents an entire crew." so if I have full female crews in quite a few tanks, even full male crews with 0 skill bia, what will happen to those crews? Will they just go to gulag or what? I really don't like this idea tbh. Thanks and hopping for an answer. :confused:

"
There is an opinion that only researchable vehicles should be allowed in Ranked Battles (reward vehicles earned for activities on the Global Map and for Personal Missions should not be allowed).
Right now, we do not have a unanimous opinion on this issue. One of the possible solutions is to use the matchmaker for this purpose, but that is also debatable. Any new rule in the matchmaker extends the queue time. At the same time, players of Ranked Battles are already limited by the number of players, servers, and Prime time. Many players are not willing to wait 5 minutes or even longer for a battle.
For the time being, the developers and players need to come to a consensus on this issue. So far, everything is under discussion."
Make ranked only for researchable vehicle, and nerf the EBR (that unreal autoaim), arty to 1 /team or MAKE THAT ONLY LAST 5 PEOPLE OF THE LOOSING TEAM TO LOOSE CHEVRONS, not 10 how it is now. 
Now ranked is the most unbalanced and painfull experience. 1 team with 2 or more T95/FV4201 and the another team with zero.

For things like this we do not have an answer at the moment as the whole system still is actively developed. We take such things like specials crews into consideration and share details as soon as we can.

Let the number of crew members like in real tanks, don't loose the reality of tanks

The shell rebalance plan has been extensively tested and as you can see we are not going forward with it without the necessary changes. So, as we write in the article for Crews:

 

Changes to the Game in 2020

The version of Crew 2.0 that you will experience on the Sandbox server is nothing more than an experiment to test our ideas. Please note that any proposed changes may not make it to the final iteration, or may be released in a completely reworked format.

Equipment has been needed a fix for years. Just add a few usefull and change the current ones a bit was enough.

 

Gold shells is a difficult one and I really have no idea how to fix that. Sometimes I even believe it is unfixable due to the changes the game has made over the years.

 

HE - No problems with HE as far as I am concerned.

 

Arty - annoying but not that big of a deal. You should though stop forcing people who dont want to to play arty.

 

Crew - changes just plain suck. I am one who invested a lot of time in special crew for each tank I own and I just like the way it is set up at the moment and see no point in changing it. Perhaps change some skills a bit to make them more usefull and invent some new one. But this overhaul is a big NO from me. Tanks just need a commander, driver, gunner and loader.

 

Ranked battles. I do not participate in ranked battles due to the allowance of stupid overpowered reward tanks and these changes are not going to fix that.

 

Balancing. Some good and some really unnneeded. And once again dumbing the game down by making all more the same. That is a very sad part of the changes over the last years. Nice to make it more noob friendly but there are hardly any unique tanks alive since Wargaming are pretty hard making all the tanks the same.

 

10 years anniversary - no info what it will be so no comments. Pardoning banned players is just crazy. dont.

 

Blueprints. have no use for them so I dont care really

1. Nerfing EBR's - make it happen asap.

2. Banning CW or even Campaign reward tanks from Ranked battles - make it happen asap.

3. Bond shop update - make it happen asap.

4. Shell rebalance - nah, I don't think this is necessary at the moment, first the tanks should be properly balanced, any weakening of the premium ammo now will only result in making the OP tanks even more OP, regardless how it's made.

5. Crew and Equipment redesigns - I have mixed feelings, gotta see the detailed changes first to have any opinion.

6. 10th Anniversary - bring it on, I can't wait. :)

 

Cheers

Interesting times ahead, don't agree with pardoning banned players though.

How do they suck if you haven't tested it yet? Do you want to play the exact same game for years or do you want refreshing updates on already outdated systems like crew and equipment?

Hold your horses, it's being debated at the moment but there is no precise plan to address this yet. :)

"Developers", do you know difference between TANKS Commanders and SHIPS Commanders?

I really hope WG will take this stuff seriously and players with all these "special" crews won't just get slapped in the face with the new crew system. Also was wondering about this "Equipment slot properties will be based on roles. There will be no restrictions for setups but some equipment will be available only to certain types of vehicles" I really hope this dosen't mean for example that I will not be able to use optics on heavys or td's like I like to do now since I hate using binos for obvious reasons (if there will be such equip after the changes).
