Downgrade 1.10 or update 1.10?

 

 

 

Edit:

 

OK, I will elaborate why I think this update is not a positive but rather a negative change:

  • Buff of progetto 46 (-1)
  • Equipment;
    • Removing the ability to freely move bino/net/box around (-1)
    • Cheaping out with only 30 demounting kits (-1)
    • Adding some equipment to diversify the system (+1)
    • Adding more powercreep in the equipment section, new items, buff of bond-equipment & adding the role specific slot (-1) because vision system is already over the limit.
  • Implementing a communication system
    • in which you REMOVE the 'affermative' and 'negative' which were used a lot. (-1)
    • Not remove the map ping spam (-1)
    • Adding stuff which you need to look away from the battle to activate (-1)
  • Adding new polish tanks (+1, for content, have not tested them but feedback seems fine)

 

Verdict (-5/9)

New map +1

Equipment 2 -1

Therefore it is neither an update or a downgrade but owing to the perceived complexity of this 'new' Equipment I have awarded it another -1.

Therefore it's a downgrade.

Wait for the new equipment for heavy armored things: protection from 1st fire, ammorack, broken engine... more track hps... 3 secs tracks repair speed... immune to arty and HE ammo... immune to crew damage...

Wait for the new equipments for wheelies: more yolo speed, more acceleration, and spotting through bushes.

Wait for demounting equipment affaire: 30 max demount kits for +100 tonks.

 

You will see what a downgrade means: Rubicon 2.0++ incoming.

All updates now play into the now "cash per minute"-policy of WG. Everything they do is meant to speed up games so people need to spend more money on consumables etc. The new equipment 2.0 will further increase game speeds by providing super overpowered builds that will stomp those with bad/no equipment even more than before. 


So yes, downgrade every patch.

Therefore it's a downgrade. 

 

New map +1

It's an old map -1

Equipment 2.0 +1

Removing equipment will be a massive hassle -1

Premium Progetto gets buffed -1

Premium EBR unaffected by WV nerfs -1

Banned players getting unbanned -1

 

By my calculations, that's a -3.

 

One step forward and two steps back, nobody gets too far like that~

They should also use "moneygrab" and "bend over and get ready for it".

To be honest, for a while now its felt like any ACTUAL improvement in the game has been introduced under duress resulting in something much more negative being done elsewhere out of spite

 

The things I think were genuinely good changes were the daily missions and their inclusion of Bonds to try and tempt people to play more regularly, that actually made sense

 

But then there was the farce of "updating" the tech tree leaving droves of crews without a worthwhile tank and stranding thousands of XP locked behind a paywall as you needed gold to get it despite it being earned IN the tech tree to begin with, then topped off by how many people would have sold a tank because they didnt need it, moved the equipment and obviously moved the crew and sold many of the modules, only to have WG make them need it again to carry on up a line that didnt link to that tank originally which they then have to buy back at full price

 

Then there was the EBRs and now equipment 2,0 soon to be followed by what I suspect will be an equally BS farce of crew 2.0 which I will wager now will be unnecessarily complex, WILL require the spending of more gold and will probably also mean crews progress more slowly AND will require the use of even more gold to take advantage of  any actual improvements they might have accidentally left in the update

 

And then theres the more bonds on tier 10 no bonds on many other tiers nonsense they are trying to claim is a good idea when the absolute worst thing is to try and get players to rush to tier 10 too soon

 

But hey, its Wargaming, why would we expect anything that is actually designed for  the majority of the players and that doesnt end up making the game even harder to play without spending but without giving any extra value if you do?

 

That would just be silly lol

 

But until more people start complaining by not spending any money they will  just keep doing it

I have never seen yet a marketing for any other product were they say, if you don't like it move on to competition... that made my day :))

This game was once great, now is a p2w full of bots and OP tanks like Progg, ebr, bourasque... premium ones.
