When a new player passes through their bootcamp missions and they receive a token for any tech tree tier 6 tank, why do you only give them a 50% crew with it ? This puts them at a big disadvantage straight away with that tier 6 tank.

Good job WG, video is great.

But for this to be useful you have to make sure that as many new players as possible will actually see it - link it from client download page, from in-game client bootcamp etc etc. Otherwise this is gonna be wasted good work.

As a beginner myself, I'll admit i had no idea what was this whole crew system and I was completely lost when i found out that there was no sixth sense (I Played WoTb before this) and thought this was some hardcore mode. Sixth sense should be for every crew no matter how much exp they have earned. 

THIS ISN'T A REASON TO ADD CREW 2.0 THOUGH:angry:

"going 15 meters behind the bush and shoot, you will remain unspotted". This line is in the video, however, this is no longer true (hasnt been for quite a while).

Nobody knows when this changed, but we tested it on various maps in the training room. "Opaqueing" the bush adds camo, but you will not be invisible when you shoot. Easy to test: take a heavy with a big gun (japanese?) and test it. A scout WILL at some distance from the bush actually spot you, opaque or not.

 

Now that we are on the subject: There have been more secret or accidental changes: Many bushes and knocked down trees give up to 70% extra camo (kind of making your tanks camo a bit silly in comparison). Yes, that is why scouting is so unsuccesfull on many maps for a couple of months now.

Why give them an elite tier 6 tank anyway? Within a few games they play tier 7, not understanding the first thing of the game. On top, they skip tier 2-5 where extra provisions have been made to let them play against other beginners. And they will be recruited, so they will get free premiums far too soon and too high for them to understand.

The bush mechanics are absolutely broken thanks to patch 1.0. Some bushes work as they've always done. Other bushes act like they're not there at all. There's a phrase for that. It's a complete fluster cuck.

Trying to make the game more accessible for new players and simpler for older ones was a large aim for crew 2.0, and players obviously felt it missed this mark and we listened :) If it reappears in the future hopefully you'll give it a 2nd chance and give feedback again so we can continue to improve on these things so they work for everyone!

There have been videos and guides since the start, although perhaps not as good as Germia's ;) But we still have new players arriving to the game and we want to make them enjoy the game as much as we can :)
