I'll toss my to cents in-

1. Will you have Kilroy show up as an Emblem on US Tanks?

2 Multi turret tanks? I'm not the best with computers but I don't think it would be too hard to implement the same formatting used for the warship turrets in WoT. (would make the Lee/Grant a little easier to grind)

3. Is Karl still alive?

4. Will the Scorpion appear later? (like the Kannonpanzer)

5. Where is Waldo? 

6. Who shot first? 

7. Will France gain two more odd ball tanks? One with a AMX 13 hull and a Chaffee Turret, and one with a Chaffee hull and an AMX 13-75

8. Are you sure the T-50-2 won't come back? Not even as a premium?

9. Please tell us that Port is making a come back

10. Will you make another full city map like Himmelsdorf? 

 

Well my two cents turned into ten cents but why toss in two pennies when a dime will do the job fine?

What is the progress of the replacement for the T28 and when will the T28 Prototype go HD~?

There is at least 4 armor layouts for the T28. Plus there was a Pre-T28 design but it is nothing like WGs fake 'T28 Prototype' I would not expect to see it in HD for at least another 6-9 months. If not more.

When are WG map designers going to :

 

a.  Stop funnelling players into a few well known choke points?

b.  Replant some bushes?

c.  Make the maps larger?

 

Furthermore, why has it taken 2 years of complaints and the introduction of a serious competitor for arty to be redesigned?

 

A bonus question - what should I do with 11k Gold and 31M credits now that I have stopped playing WoT due to the points above?

well...

 

more maps,bring back removed maps,open up as many maps as possible to appropriate tiers,as many maps as possible in queue rotation...

 

prevent failtoons loading into matches

 

when creating matches,grab 30-tank groups and then split them as equally as possible onto 2 15-tank teams...not the present 15-tank groups looking for another 15tank group to put in match

 

stop the bundled sales,except for christmas sales

 

if emblem/inscription bonus must happen,let permanent be possible with credits only,and let us choose the bonus for the marking,like we do the skills for crew choosing

 

when patches are created,please have a location where ALL the components are listed and reviewable by players,not just what you might think is pertinent

 

multi-tier tank carousel with many types of filters

 

multi-core support

 

higher graphics settings for all, but enabled to toggle off for low-power computers

 

server roaming,i would like to play on RU server but also wish to keep my full garage

 

lessen RNG

 

if special modes are created such as chaffee racing,please ensure there is a worthwhile reward for playing. not as in the Domination mode.

 

draw box becoming the logical draw circle

 

enable rubble piles to actually be driven over(also other in-map obstacles that really should be passable)

 

im sure i forgot some,thats just some of my thoughts...

 

oh yes plaese have much more news and info be made fully available to players as much as possible!! communication as a priority would be nice.

 

glad to see some attempt s finally being made. thank you.

Are you guys planning to reduce Panther/M10 shell cost, 3k premium shell cost kind of defeats its premium money making status...  the Panther is a more reliable money maker! 

With 3k credits per shell you have to decide whether you want to make money and do little damage, or go negative and be competitive.  Something you shouldn't have to decide on a premium tank!

 

Panther AP-198 pen  APCR-250!  Panther m/10  AP​-150 APCR-194  

 

Just my two cents, would like to hear opinion of a dev :) 

 

 

EDIT:  Just realized that the Fury had that 3k shell cost from the detachment tonight.....  I'm not sure about other lower damage tanks..... but that is, in my opinion, a bit to pricey for the 100-200 damage range.

3k per shell is fine... If you really want to nit pick look at the 'premium' shell costs for SPGs...

SPGs use HE, they don't need premium rounds... What I'm saying is 3k per shell when you need to pen, and only being 100 damage will bring your funds on those money grinding tanks down to a negative.

 It shouldn't be a choice between staying competitive and making money on premium tanks but something like, making sh*t tons w/o gold or making ~standard tanks' profit w/gold

Ok, I am certain a few of these questions have been asked, but here we go.

 

1.  Will we hear female voice acting for tanks that are commanded by female commanders?

 

2.  Has the development team considered the need to rework all penetration values for all guns?  Under the present values, some guns have to run premium in order to stay competitive in their own tier, let alone have any chance against higher tiers.  The prevalence of premium rounds (rounds that give bounce penetration at additional cost) in the game is removing certain aspects of strategy and making heavy armor less useful.

 

3.  Is the development team going to continue to develop new maps designed for all tank types to have a role, or are we going to continue to see maps designed for the benefits of brawling tanks?  For examples.  Kharkov is terrible for artillery and provides few effective positions for tank destroyers and light tanks, but provides great brawling areas for heavy and medium tanks.  The latest version of Redshire has yet again reduced lanes of fire for tank destroyers and made a few more spots on the map that artillery can not hit.

 

4.  Map rotation can feel very static some days, does the development team have any thoughts or plans on improving map rotation?

I have 1 Female crew person.  I probably wont get anymore.  See, I suck at lights, and I haven't touched an SPG in, literally, years.   So.......................

.

Q:  Will we somehow get an opportunity to buy them, or tokens or something?  Right now, they are useless and just taking up bunks.

.

Q:  WHERE IS THE UK CHIEFTAIN  ????

.

also, please un-funnel maps and boosh them up.  Seriously, please do that <<<< .we need bushes back.

The above poster is correct^^^ is correct. The odd female crew members are a problem now. They block you from getting BIA on the rest of your crew. If you can't attain 1 or 2 crew members. Their odd an you can't use them in some cases. It's kind of a foul up. An the personal missions leave you hanging. 

 

Rumor or has it that Storm is RESIGNING. Is Storm leaving ?  Some people said he was leaving. Is that true?

Multi-gun support please. I'd really like to use the 37mm on top of my M3 Lee and Grant.

No kidding, hell, even warthunder managed to make that work. Nothing else in that game works, but they did make multi-weapon tanks function.

Will we at some point in the future get the ability to transfer between server clusters. For example transferring from the NA servers to the EU servers?

IF you watched their Friday, live stream Pizza and Chieftain said they would be forwarding on the good questions to the Dev's today (Monday). It may take a week or so possibly for answers though. But jeez this was only posted Friday early afternoon calm down. They got lives to you know!
