Don’t want it, don’t care, another credit sink to clean us out.

On a positive note: Good to see that wargaming puts in a lot of time and effort. On the other hand: Unfortunately this feature is totally dumb and unnecessary though...

No video?

 

You can't possibly expect us lazy, spoilt people of 2021 to ever actually read a lot of stuff like that do you? Have you got the lazy bar steward short version anywhere?

Another thing we didn`t ask and don`t need. Wg just wants to mess up the game for free to play players

........and make the game even more complicated...

 

Less and less people will start this game.

 

Game-experience is allready total crap.

Nah, I'm sure if we read it, this time it says that SPG are finally going to be reduced to 1 per team max and that shooting a WV in the wheels will cause it to stop just like when you shoot the tracks off an actual tank. No doubt in my mind.

I wonder how MM is going to balance teams now. Stock tank vs fully researched and fully upgraded tank in opposite teams, both on the top.

 

Overall I like field modifications, I just have an issue with all tiers getting a nerf comparing to tier X where those get the biggest buff.

Giving top tier tanks even more bonuses...

 

WG forcing people to play higher tiers by making lower tiers worse and worse...

 

You are tier 7 ? No second special slot for you have fun playing again a tier 7 tank having a special slots and another bonus more than you in addition to beeing +2 tiers higher anyway.

 

This system is just stupid

Not sure what everyone is so dead set against here. It is simply an additional way to fine tune a tank you like. Can't for the life of me see what is wrong with that.

It doesn't provide OP bonuses because each plus is countered by an equal (or worse) negative.

I like the idea. Am I going to use it on all of my tanks? Hell no, I have neither the time, the patience not the credits for that. I will however, most definitely, use it on my favourite tanks.

How can the idea of customising your favourite tank, just enough so that it is clearly not the same as anyone else's, be a bad thing?

Just my tuppence worth :-)

I am sure that this was made to simplify the game for new players.

If you use modification 3, for alternate equipment. Does it consume demounting kits or gold or is it free?

More unnecessary stuff to break a broken game even more because Wargaming "care" about their game and players...

 giving progetto's an extra slot, so now they get mobility bonuses as well as firepower (for example), just makes it even easier to club T6/7 tanks which don't get that option for a 2nd slot...

 

that's my real problem with the field mods. the rest atleast has a downside, so it doesn't imbalance everything, but giving people an extra buff on T8 and forgetting the rest is just increasing the already huge gap between T6 tanks and T8 ones.

 

 

and no, not everyone runs full bond equipment on prog, so there will be people who benefit from the bonuses provided by the slot...

No it's totally free when switching loadouts, no need to use gold or demount kits, you only need to buy your equipment (or add them from the depot) to the second loadout and once you go into battle, you will be able to switch between loadouts depending on your playstyle and the map :)

How it works?

It doesn't.


At least not in the favor of the casual & laid back players!

A meaningless free exp laundry, just so peoples are tricked into buying more gold for something that will unlock a 5% bonus on something while taking out 3% elsewhere. That's just laughable.

Nope, you don't listen to feedback at all, the feedback is NEARLY UNIVERSALLY NEGATIVE:

Update 1.14 CT2 - Field Modification - General Feedback - Public Test - World of Tanks official forum

 

We don't want:

 - more grinding, now even for prem vehicles, tier 10s and elite vehicles

 - the players who play the most to have even more advantages over casual players

 - more credit sink (field modifications + 2 sets of equipment for every single tank in order to be competitive)

 

Instead we want

 - Nerfed Chief, 279e and ebr

 - Clan wars with only tech tree tanks

 - General rebalance

 - More balanced maps

 - New campaign similar to 260/279(e)
