What a great news...

 

Block Quote

Commander's Vision System

All Tier VIII and higher light and medium tanks.

 

 

So wheelies may zoom around with this and Coated Optics and all tanks will be exposed even behind bushes. What a great news for all TDs, HTs and glass cannons. Never ever being hit by SPGs was so easy and fun.

 

Block Quote

All players will receive a number of Demount Kits equivalent to the number of Tier VI–X vehicles in their Garage, but no more than 30 Demount Kits per account.

 

Seriously, people have dozens if not hundreds tanks in their garages, each with three modules usually. These "generous" 30 kits allow to demount equipment from just 10 tanks, for another hundred of your tanks you have to buy the bundle for millions of credits. Yeah, yeah, there will be some missions. FFS, you are so greedy that it's going beyond human perception.

 

Block Quote

Equipment that previously had the status of Standard (Camouflage Net, Binocular Telescope, and Toolbox) can be dismantled according to the general rules, for 10 gold or using a Demount Kit.

 

Because why not to be even more greedy. All this equipment was useful especially during early grind when suspension has limits and you can't install anything heavier. But why bother - dear players, go fight in the even more stock tanks now or buy gold.

 

Last but not least - nerf of Bounty Equipment when just a few weeks back you've advertised BE as equal to the Improved equipment and significantly better than standard ones. And well, you advertised this equipment to get players to buy Battle Pass. This is scam, seriously.

With introducing these changes it will be time for another break for year or two. Maybe someone in WG understand something. Or well, looking at World of Warships I think nobody cares anymore. Just pay for prem accounts, gold and prem vehicles, shut up and you'll be this kind of player we like the most.

Facepalm

Just quoting my self from 1½ month ago.

 

"Let me come with a prediction for the release version of equipment 2.0. Something will be stupidly OP and it'll cost players multiple millions in credits to shovel equipment around because the amount of demounting kits is jokily small. I hope i'm wrong."



Dude I remember reading that somewhere.
If it really was you, you were spot on.

Can we just boycott this whole degenerate cash grab and just not log in the whole day on the 4th?

 

 

Crash the whole friggin Wg decade anniversary. Celebrate alone you filthy animal.

I'll tell my whole friends list this idea ang hopefully this will drop a nice, thicc middle finger straight into the birthday cake.

 

Never in my life have I seen a more thirsty, greedy company.

I can bet my left nut that they are litterally gathering each week somewhere in Cyprus like a bunch of disgusting goblins around the fat mahogany round table and basically discuss new schemes and ways to straight up **** us waaay up our colon.

It is, It was corrected.

 

 

Actually the majority of players are in favor of the changes. We have tested several iterations for quite a long time now, we have collected a ton of player feedback, not just on the forum, but also on other platforms and, most importantly, through in-game surveys - I can assure you that we are following up on what players want.


The majority of players who gave the answer you wanted ?

The only people I have seen on forums ,reddit etc have NOT been in favour, in EU and other areas as well.

Why not show the results of these surveys?

Don't buy anything from WG. They want to attract new players but they insult and alienate older players in the process. In the end they will get nothing. Vote with your money, do not spend a penny on them.

So you can buy demounting kits for credits now? I guess that's something, although I still feel there were better choices WG could have made in this area.

You can earn some for free or by doing some missions.

Some equipment will be automatically converted or demounted and sent to your depot.

Check out this article to understand what will happen to your equipment and maybe you can save yourself some credits and kits :)

@Dwigt can you confirm that Modified Configuration will have bonus like Bond Equipment?

Yes the Improved Toobox will be converted into modified configuration and will have its bonus.

Really..........in game surveys? When ? How can you say it was tested well when you go on to the test servers and there's only around 3-4000 players on it and nearly all of them are playing tier 10 and spamming nothing but gold and it was only up for a few weeks at most. Something this big should have had at least a few months. Don't know why you have a public test section on the forum, its obviously dosn't get read. 

Both sandbox testing rounds were available for everyone to join and test the new changes and were followed by a very detailed survey sent to the participants.
We do listen and forward the feedback from the forums to our devs but once again, we have different regions and sources for our feedback.

Well I did go on the test servers and each time I said just don't do it, of course you will demount tier I to III for free because they haven't got enough slots so not an act of generosity just had to be. You should have demounted and converted all the existing equipment and put it in our garages, that would have made our lives easier, but no an opportunity for more money raised it's head and you took it. Discount this and special offer that still costs credits and for some players cash.

I currently have 247 tanks in the garage so have invested a lot in the game over the years but that will have to draw to a close now, these changes and the proposed one to the crews (I have 1217 crew currently) were not asked for nor ever raised as an issue. You make it simpler and easier for new players which will upset any long term players who have had to research dozens of tanks for no other reason than to get the tanks they wanted and think of all that XP and all those credits that now seem wasted.

Please just send every player who's been with you for 5 years or more a free MUG because that is how we feel and that is how you treat us.

Oh yes and your oft repeated mantra 'if you don't enjoy it stop playing' is not a great one if I'm honest.

Unwanted, disliked, penalises veteran players with 100+ AFVs in their garage.

 

Please, please change your minds before you destroy your fan base.

 

too late man. if you think wg is going to change their mind at this point you're wrong. and rebalancing will take half to 1 and a half a year like the Type 4/5 heavy and Obj. 268 v4 nerf did.

@Dwigt - Do you know if War Gaming are planning on releasing Bond and Bounty versions of the new equipment at some point in the future, (i.e. Turbochargers, Aim Unit etc)? It could be interesting to get hold of this stuff. :)

This goes well with the previous announcement stating they'll be lifting permabans.

 

Because they know they F'd up both the game and playerbase with this and the only way out of this would be to get permabanned players back to game.

 

On a side note, there is simply way too many wrong things with implementation of this it's beyond ridicolous.

 

But all in all, we'll get used to this like we always do with any crap WG casually throws at us. Sad thing is the gameplay quality keeps declining badly.

Why the hell you need to BUFF purple equipment?!
This was chance to fix mistake you made by introducing purple equipment, and now you're making even more differences.

Non CW and non-ranked players (many of them out there don't want to be part of that crapfest) will have 1% boost on ONE specific part of equipment while ranked and cw players will be able to have 3 pieces of equipment, with additional boost.
Where the f is sense in that?

Why you don't send all the equipment to the depot ? Why we should pay to demount equipment ? This sux. Players don't want to spend gold/credits for nothing.

 

Also ... the changes are nice... the old system was 2 static. All tanks have almost the same equipment ... more or less. Good job . Don't know why many people are hating on those changes.
