Yay for:

- broken new tanks that totally outclass older ones

- MM still not fixed

- Arty still oneshotting tanks doing 50+ kmph

- Totally not pay-to-win premium tanks

- "people" whose IQ starts with decimal still part of game

- bots still part of every game

and your problem is what again?

If you deal with it and not whine you'll like this game better.

And as for getting nuked at full tilt by arty, Not even they expect that to happen.

If a bot is someone that plays better than you, I have no complaint. You deserve to get owned.

The decimal IQ is not the problem. even they get lucky. It's those who [edited]around like they're playing minecraft, not caring that they harm others with their horseplay.

I own a few dozen premiums. They do not help me win, just keep me in the black playing high tier battles with low tier players.

And if the new tanks are besting you, start playing the new tanks and give them payback. Biching is not going to change anything.

Let's see if this patch will have the included Battle Assistant (then I will say "bye bye" to Quickybaby's XVM, as I couldn't install solely the BA).

 

You can download and install the BA by itself.  I have always done this. It is a separate mod.

Too bad the Swedes are pretty much trash after all the nerfs/overmatch removal. Now they are one-trick/no-trick ponies. :(

#1) You mean the Swedish TDs that are about to get overmatched in every match, at every tier, by every enemy?  THOSE broken tanks?

#2) Instead of talking about problems, suggest a solution...  How would YOU fix MM?

#3) May I ask what the hell difference Arty one-shooting a tank moving at ANY speed has anything to do with anything?  This is an arcade game.  In order for arty to be IN the game, you have to completely rework the laws of physics, especially gravity, in order for artillery to even be used at all.  Artillery firing at the angles shown in game would cover kilometers, not meters.  As it is, the muzzle velocity in this arcade game for the SLOWEST SPG is still many times faster than even the Ru 251's fastest-in-game-speed of 80km/h.  There are a whole host of issues that would have to be reworked before we could even change arty given the game engine.

#4) Sarcasm aside, the new premium tanks may give one person better access to better stats, but better stats do NOT translate to more wins, as I, a true and real wallet-warrior, can show.  And yes I realize that the sample size is small, but as with all things, the better a player is, and the better a tank performs, then the more successful the combination would be.  Hence why I would suggest that an IS-3, generally, performs better than a Caernarvon.

#5) and #6) are the same thing.  What is it?  Medically impossible human beings functioning enough to utilize a keyboard and mouse, or computer programs used to AI a tank in circles on fiery salient?

 

Well, I, as a mere noob, would love to know what a vastly more experienced player would do to alleviate all of these problems you allege to exist in game.

 

I await a most fascinating educational experience...

The Strv 103B is very balanced, imho from last patch. It is fine. Don't touch it. The Kranvagn nerf to its engine was unfortunate, as the speed and maneuverability were quite fun, Also, the hull armor was nerfed as well, which sucks, because that was the ONE historically accurate, in-the-museum part of it.

Have you found out how to fix your game yet? MM is still garbage, needs a serious overhaul. RNG needs to stop picking sides, I've had thousands of game where teams that should have won lost because of low rolls, ammoracks, and cancer 1shotting sh!t. also winning matches that shouldn't be won because RNG lets me 1shot sh!t in my cancer. and the "balance" of every new line that comes into the game is amazing, and you show your "balancing" skills the very next patch by nerfing the f@ck out of them.

 

Sandbox was a terrible idea, ruined everything. Then the new Overmatch mechanic made your already OP russian meds even more OP(I have 140 and 62A, they are OP, and they make my day every time a seal cries), ruining everything yet again. both "ideas" have been put on "hold"... I wonder why. and every time we ask about fixes we get "Soon®"

So, am I just a cynical old bastage, or are they buffing the heck out of primarily premium tanks?  "Encouraging" even more pay-to-play.  As if the higher tiers don't have enough tomatoes now.

Everyone is talking about the Swedish tanks but for me.. I'm was looking forward to the current tanks being changed. But I was not aware of:

 

 

  • Enabled award windows for completed missions (previously, award windows were enabled only for Personal Missions)
  • Krupp-Steyr Waffenträger:
    • Increased vehicle profitability by 15%
  • VK 28.01:
    • Increased gun depression angle from -5 to -10

 

Interesting..

I thought the 72.01 and 121b were getting a buff this patch.  If that was not true, I'm sad.

If you have watched any of the dev talk videos that WGNA put out, they worked on tackling small issues this past year. Bringing in mods, fixing the sound, making UI and mini-map changes are just a few. In the videos they stated that 2017 is when they are going after the big things like MM and arty. Now, I know its WG and we have to take what they say with a grain of salt and temper our expectations, but they have been working on it and its not like they can just flip a switch and MM is magically fixed. Such a massive coding nightmare takes time and testing. Ill be happy if we just see them start to roll test ideas for MM fixes in 2017, at least we will know they werent pulling our legs.

Sweden is the best nation in the game. I would gladly debate anyone who doesn't think so.
