Nice patch with new features, I do like field modifications concept. But it's a shame WG has not responded to any issues community had about the 1.14 patch, it feels like community is being ignored even more than usual and no explanation has been provided by WG to chill things up after very hot and controversial 1.13 HE and arty nerf.

 

Some of the issues with 1.14 community had and WG said nothing:

 

  • Frontline with tier IX and heavy credits nerf as a consequence of the change. For me Frontline is dead and this is yet another fun thing that's been broken recently.
  • Indirect buff to all tier X tanks because of field modifications and it's permanent bonus, which is much higher comparing to tier VI - IX. Tier X will be few percentage more effective against tier VIII and tier VIII commonly fights against tier X in random battles. For me this seems to be a nerf to tier VI-XI and especially to tier VIII premiums fighting tier X battles.
  • Credits cost for dual modifications and the fact you have to keep purchasing it every time you change anything.
  • Recent WG WoT YouTube videos about sandbox/test servers changes have a very high dislikes to likes ratio, WG has not looked at any of the questions players had and has not responded in any way. Neither they calmed up CC's and players making things worst. 
  • I'd also add an issue about OP bond turbo reward in recent Ranked battles and the lack of Chieftain in Thunderstorm CW event. No explanation from WG whatsoever and everyone is complaining about WG giving a monkey. Btw, CW meta is ridiculous with only 3 tanks that are being played by teams.

 

With HE changes and Field Modifications, the game will be more expensive to play. Crew 2.0 will raise this bar even higher with paid instructors and nerf to all existing crews, since the new maxed out crew will be much more efficient than the old one.

The only thing that i'm excited about are the CZ heavies cause Field Modifications are a total scam, "set your tank up how you like" (ofc how WG has classified them) meaning some tanks that could do with a firepower slot won't get it or a Mobility slot won't get it either cause WG.......

CZ heavies seem good, field modification seems ok but I don't understand why you plan a new crew skill system after having this.

And if you keep pushing out the current crew 2.0, I'm afraid this might be the last anniversary of wot.

We are not pushing for Crew 2.0 but we are trying to improve it based on the feedback you are providing us. 

It's still not yet confirmed that it will come to the live server. But for now the upcoming weeks will be exciting and busy for many of us with Frontline and the anniversary coming our way!

As you already know the rewards are always changing and we're always trying to improve them to satisfy everyone who stayed with us over those past 11 years :) We hope not to disappoint you this time.

Buahahahahahaha, the joke of the day, simply THE JOKE. First Frontline gave us bonds, gold, t8 premium tanks, directives and some other rewards, while FL 2021 (the improved one, u know) will give us some directives plus BP points. And less credits cos of the t9s, on top of that. Hell of an improvent, u don't say!

In 2020 we got tank rewards with t6-7 prem tanks, some prem days, high quality personal reserves, etc., now there is tank wars with... hmmm, 2 crew skins as top prize. Amazing.

I kinda liked the rewards in 10-th anniversary, they were mostly visual goodies, yet nice and fresh. Now I expect another WG style "improvement".

Don't forget the important bit.

The premium Heavy comes in the shop within the next 7 days and my discount coupon can be used on it ;)

 

You just gave me another 30% discount coupon for a 5 kill victory and every tank in the store I already have except the Skoda T40 which I neither want nor need.

Got plenty of gold and premium time so need either some of the old premiums like the Panther Mit 88 showing up so I can get them for gold or a new premium.

Waste of time giving me the coupons otherwise.

I'm just using up my premium time at this point.

 

The chances of me spending more money on this game are extremely low.

Those would be the Chief, 279e and 907 ? ... and the ebr, 277, E3, Strv, STB, CS, CGC, 60TP, 50B, TVP, E100, Kran, S Conq, Manticore, 268v4, IS7 and 140.

no one cares any more war gamimg, when you failed to listen to everyone with the patches, people give up, i bet the player base has decreased over the HE issue alone, always have been dumb and think you know best, guess what, you players know better

If you don't play Chief, 279e and 907 you are not going to get far in that event. Yes you can play Type 5 Heavy, but you will not be wining much, just look at all top clans matches.

 

I'm not going to be surprised if the next CW event will be without rewards tanks, as were Ranked this year.

I have planned to this year - just as last year - to buy premium account time for Frontline.

I have planned to grind as much credit as possible. 

Last year is earn about 60 000 000 credit .

 

Now I see no reason to grind Frontline. So no reason to buy premium time.

Haha yes everyone cares.

Just **** off 

 

Getting back into this game was easily my worst life choice, and I have taken drugs at one point. Thats how bad this game is.
