Watch the video and draw your own conclusions. :) I just jotted down what was said in the video, I have no insider info.


Haha, your sucha tease you kitty! =P

Anyways,

timestamps for anyone that's interested;

150mm and 152mm are mentioned @ 2:33
130mm and 170mm are mentioned @ 2:42
Foch 155 rebalance are mentioned @ 2:50

It just seems odd, to me this will not have too much of an affect on the Foch 155 as it will only reduce it's Power to Weight ratio down to 17.36 which is not that big of a nerf. It is my opinion that if this is the extent of things then the Foch 155 is getting off very lightly.

Check the video: Foch 155 was highlighted.


With respect Dai, I was only placing an inquiry with someone who watched it before I had the opportunity to.

Not entirely sure about the "chat off" function. I understand the concept of not wanting to be verbally assailed by a mad 12 year old but chat does occasionally have usefulness. Part of the issue with this game has always been lack of proper communication, especially on pub matches, to just make that worse is...well...idk. Too many thin skinned people out there I guess...if someone you've never met, who knows nothing about you makes you mad, maybe the issue isn't with them....

I am happy about the new on fire icon. I have asked for this before as have a lot of us. This kind of feels like this is one thing they heard us on and fixed. Now another new map not sure I care. The last new map I have seen 4 or 5 times out of about 400 matches. So it seem it be another map that i will not see much.

i dont think its a lack of communication. i think its a lack of understanding, and an abundance of willful ignorance thats the problem. people, in general, are far more stupid than most like to admit

Highlights:

- Foch 155 loses the 1200 hp engine, keeps the 1000 one.

- Object 268 HEAT shell 'significantly' nerfed.

- Option to turn 'this is the tank that killed you' screen off. Finally.

 

1. Front armor need nerf too. Because it often bounce shot even at that one weak spot in front. Top of the horns! At same time hard to flank it, even with T-54 or similar fast tank. 

2. Of course, in every patch one of the Russian tanks/TD must be nerfed. It will be better to remove complete nation... 

3. Finally!

National battle mode sounds like pure crap. Some nations are blatantly better at certain tiers. I'll be turning that off without even playing it.

 

Yea thats what Im worried about too.

Dissapointed at the changes, expected more changes to TD's but oh well. One thing that does make me happy is the Erlenshit, Redshit and Highway changes, we'll see how that changes gameplay though.

Oh and the new mode not sure how well that will work out with a already thinned out number of players. Now you will end up with other mode with greater numbers of Japanese and Chinese tanks. I am not sure I will keep this mode on. I will likely try it to see how it works but I just not sure this will work out till we see more players online or the Japanese and Chinese lines are full and can pley in the new mode.

1. last thing this game needs is another new garbage map made of nothing but choke points. pro tip: adding snow to abbey doesnt make it new or good

2. td guns dont need a nerf. td vehicles need a nerf. hp nerf, forcing players to be more cautious with them. lowering the alpha of the 268 but keeping the dpm the same will do nothing but make them even more aggressive

3. multicore support has been offered by every major title for the last 5 years, yet wg cant seem to get it sorted out. since beta, it was promised that it would happen. yet here we are, over 2 years later, and rigs that run crysis 3 flawlessly crap fps on this game out at a slow and constipated rate because this company is too busy adding "new content" to fix the crap they pooped out years ago.

 

this kind of garbage is what makes money-grabbing companies tank (pun intended) as soon as a competitor shows up. star wars galaxies? shit the bed when WoW came out. Everquest? same story. why? because SoE is a money grabing garbage developer. as soon as competition came out, they folded. i have spent a lot of time on this game, and have had a lot of fun. but the issues that were ruining the experience 2 years ago have been completely ignored, and now there is a competitor about to loom its head, and these are the "improvements" they vomit out. its crap.

The vast majority of this game player base runs the game on a single core CPU with a high clock speed.

Reading comprehension, please.

 

National battle mode works like assault and encounter. Meaning you won't enter a separate queue for it with adjusted waiting times, but it happens or not when entering a random battle.

Because WT is a trash of a game when it comes to ground forces.


Have you seen those stupid tank flip videos? Does WoT really need that sort of gameplay?
