Long time player and first time poster but I feel some things need to be said.

 

Can we please start making use of the test server to try out some of the MANY player-based suggestions?

 

For example;

+-1 tier matchmaking

Nerfs/buffs

 

And then at the end of each period just do a simple poll (survey monkey or Google forms even!) to see if players think that the changes made in the test improved overage game quality and should be implemented live.

 

I feel like there is a lot of potential going to waste with the test server and it is just used as a means to push out new content more than fix what is already started.

 

And keep the tests simple! This game is wonderful and I think some things may be over complicated. Simple tests and simple solutions. If players give negative feedback then scrap the change! and by keeping the tests simple then there is minimal work wasted.

 

Thank you for listening to my rant/suggestion.

They have trouble implementing their own ideas never mind ours.

The test server is completely useless for anything other than finding bugs. 98% of players are in tier 10 tanks or tier 8 premiums and most people spam nothing but gold. Not even close to a realistic representation of standard game play.

 

Though I should mention there is talk about a new invitation only test system where specific players will be chosen to test specific issues.

For example;

+-1 tier matchmaking   READ THIS STRAIGHT FROM WG: 

 

April 11, 2016- Storm Q&A

– +/-1 MM will not be introduced, it would completely break the progression

 

Apr. 2016

– There are no plans for +/-1 MM (with the exception of lowest tiers), but if that ever happens, all vehicles will have to be completely rebalanced

 

Nerfs/buffs

How do they know if they never even try it? That's such a cop out answer.

Why would you even want +/-1 MM?? +2 matches are where you earn the most exp and credits. Maybe they should do the poll/survey BEFORE they try out new things. Because I would definitely vote no on +/-1 MM.

They ignored the native screen resolution/full screen mode BUG on the test server, yet they brought this mess into a LIVE patched game, not professional guys. Very amateur mistakes from the devs. Someone needs to be held responsible for letting these bugs slide into your live games. It was perfect on patch 9.14 why did you tweak anything screen resolution related? Not called for. My 2 cents. Learn from your mistakes please.

 

Customer support final solution is telling me this, "At this time we are going to place your ticket on hold and escalate this issue to our product specialist."?

 

Serious issues were ignored on your Test Servers. Too many inexperienced mistakes on WG side. I've seen regular players do a better job and they are free volunteers on the forum LOL!

 

Read this and look at the screen shots provided, how do you lack basic knowledge of not providing me my native screen resolution? It's embarassing, my programming teachers would fail you in class. No apology, no nothing? No compensation for lost premium time for the last 7 days? This is honestly unreal.
