I'm afraid my opinion is akin to some of the posters here:

 

Map

>In the announcement, the narrator clearly states WG's MO towards making them (HTs/AGs to city, Mediums in between, LTs/Snipers to fields).

So as long as WG maintains this map format, often for the sake of the mediocre players, no new map will ever have variety in it. No ability to flank, no dynamics, no way to counter or counter-counter a push, nothing.

The team that loses more HTs, that is the team that will not win.

 

In short: Without even playing it, we can assume - and we will probably be right - the map will not bring any more than others already provide: stale, tasteless, predictable gameplay.

 

Battle Pass

>Merely changing equipment, rewards, nations is insufficient. This alone will keep people playing in an arms race type of battling, though I suspect that is part of the objective.

I reserve further judgement as this concept is fairly new. It is good but so far. Nevertheless, the non-clansmen has very little use for the amount of bonds acquired. There was a player who showed 100.000 bonds on his account, with all lines unlocked, plenty of gold and silver and yet, nothing to spend these rare resources in.

 

I would suggest giving the opportunity to players to craft/manufacture a given resource that would bring them some sort of benefit over time. Buying virtual goods with the said currency alone is not enough, as there is few items worth spending it on.

 

Customization

>While I comprehend this is a different department that has an independent agenda as per, say, the balancing department, I will not question their expertise. I'm sure the stickers and additional options are favourable.

Yet, an individual vehicle looking good, will not offset its characteristics that are relevant in combat, more especially so when one takes place. I see it as a moot point, if the latter does not take precedence.

I will take pride in looking at such decals, paintschemes after a worthy battle where I've done what was required from me (regardless of defeat or victory) as I've given my all. That will not happen if the vehicle, or its class, is inherently and artificially handicapped to make up for deficiencies in someone else's game style in other classes.

 

 

To oversimplify:

This is a small patch, with very little content - if any - worthy of praise that took a very long time to be released, which does not, once more, address any of the issues the community has been asking for during a long time - nor what WG has promised over the last 12 months.

Berlin map:

>1/2 map is designed for wheelies to chase each other around.

All activity is in city (except wheelies).

Majority of obstacles do not save you from arty.
TDs go to 1st line in city or entertain themselves with snipping chasing wheelies through the bushes.

Fast/hard headed goes to the bunker, but mainly does nothing because all action and meat happens to be elsewhere.

Kinda useless update..

Patch day is June 11th and servers will be down at least half of the day? Seriously? It's a public holiday in half of Europe, dear WG.

Guess that's yet another proof how much WG gives a s*it about their customers.

 

What public holiday is June 11 for "half of Europe"?!

I'm going to ask:

Why was 1.9. such a big update and why is 1.9.1. so small?

I mean I complained when 1.9. came that it changed the game A LOT and had 3 big things all bundled in a single update. (1. Making 90 tech tree tanks 'collectibles' that have no real value now; 2. Changing tank tier's / classes for some tanks; 3. hp buff  and ammo increase for more than 50% of tanks in WoT) You could have done these things 1 by 1, then 1.9.1. wouldn't have to be so empty.

Usually when we have a big update like the 1.9 or 1.8 we go by 1 tenth (0.1)
For smaller updates or what they call content drops or patches in other games we keep the base update number "1.9" and add the additional 0.1, 0.2... Let's say for consistency reasons we always use "update" :)

Almost 10 hours for the patch ???

WHAT ???
If I took 10 hours for my production DB migration I would get fired...
You need better workers for sure...
And new game design team together with new balancing team...

So what?

Be thankful they work on holidays and do not postpone it....

You could have planned for the free morning years in advance as it is in the calendar. 

But no, you cannot wait to get the new decals?

  

Man, get a life, not mentioning a girlfriend...

 

What is wrong with you? You have no idea what you are talking about.

Holidays are NOT an excuse in this part of IT world. There are no holiday in this.
They should have postponed the patch to next work day or bring the patch one day earlier if day want to have holidays.

This is a disaster in IT world. To have a 10 hours downtime ??? Disaster.
Like I wrote before, if I had 10 hours of downtime for my production DB i would get fired... maybe even more people.
This is such a bad work.
Every DB-Admin and / or server admin will tell you that this long downtime is unimaginable.
This stuff should only happen when almost nobody is expected to connect. Like a work day like monday.

For WG, holidays are the WORSE time to have a downtime!
A lot of people are at home and want to have a good time while playing.

So, who the hell is the idiot on the WG team who had the idea to bring a patch with a 10 hours downtime on a holiday ???

Fire that guy right now, he is not fit to work in IT department.

This happened once at my work place and next time we had a new manager that did pay attention to this.

I'm not a technical guy but I don't think the 1914MB update that you can preload on your PC is the same that we're uploading on our servers! I suppose it's a bit larger and we run several tests and troubleshooting in the process.

Previously, it was said that bond shop will be refreshed at the beginning of the ranked season, however, although the new ranked season was mentioned in the update test, neither ranked season nor the bond shop was mentioned the content published yesterday. Could you tell the bond shop will be refreshed?
