having every time i tab out or get a notification from windows 10 (the great annoyer) it takes the game from full screen and forces it back to windowed mode i can't say this is an improvement.

UGGHH... Fix my aspect ratio please. screen at 2560 x 1440. The only option is 16:9. I'm guessing this is why my tanks have all gotten tall and skinny? At any rate it used to be the only issue was my interface being too small. So you brought back the scaling option this patch, but you still only have x1 or x2. x1 is too small, x2 is waaaaay to big. I need x1.25. is that too much to ask? 

 

To summarize, my tanks look weird and my interface is still broken. Like seriously, high def monitors have been around in droves for 2 years? And still no fix... :(

Bring back the advanced technical characteristics option, having to click on each section is cumbersome and annoying.

Bring back advanced (non-simplified) tank characteristics... this simplified view is annoying

 

Add filter to "non-elite" vehicles. (from XVM)

That's part of XVM, and possibly other mods, and wasn't in the vanilla client before.  That being said, yes, I think it should be part of the vanilla client.

The new Missions Tab is not working properly.

When you click on it you are taken to the middle of the list every time and always to the all missions tab

Even if you click hide completed the setting is not changed and you have to check it again next time you go back.

 

Then if you click the 3rd tab for the specific tank it takes you to the bottom of the list instead of starting at the top.

 

Also, when you hover over the missions tab it just list 4 of them and most are not the relevant ones.

 

So can someone take a look to see if there is something that can be done?

 

Thanks

Yes.  This.  The simplified menu is, basically, useless.  I don't care what my "survivability" number is.  It means nothing.  Advanced stats, please.

 

 

 


 

p.s. Stop changing stuff that doesn't need to be changed, spend some time on spotting because if there's one thing I feel is completely broken, that's it.

Wargaming,

 

In regards to your Simplified Technical Characteristics Display...

 

Please just put it back to the way you had it before? you know with the option.. I too enjoyed the old interface and this was really a simplified technical characteristics display...

 

I don't want averages, I don't want to expand categories that make me have to scroll to see quick stats on my tank, I don't want all the fluff that distracts rather than helps...hence simplified...

 

anyone else feel the same way?

I couldnt find another thread that might be the correct one to post my question in besides this one so i hope im in the right place, lolz. I looked all over the "Patch Notes" but couldnt find the answer so here goes. Going by the screenshot below from the Garage, when i mouse over my tank in the lineup at the bottom of the screen it gives me a number in parenthesis & a percentage number. What are they for & what do they relate to?  :unsure:

 

 

It means you have a 67% win rate in that tank and have received a 2nd class as your highest mastery badge in it.

I would guess 98% of the players feel this way.  Thew numbers for the "simplified" characteristics are simply meaningless.  If your survivability is 203, how much frontal armor do you have?  How many hitpoints do you have?  If your firepower is 597, what is your reload time?  What's the average penetration of a standard round?  How about your gun depression?  How does a fire power of 597 give you any indication what your gun depression is?  Give us the important numbers again (without the cumbersome process of expanding dropdowns and scrolling through the specs).  Get rid of those dumb simplified numbers (send them back to the kids on console).

You might have to edit the aspect ratio in this file: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Wargaming.net\WorldOfTanks\preferences.xml

 

Substitute your correct path.

 

I have an ultra-wide screen (2560x1080) and aspectRatio is set at 2.370370.  There is a new parameter I haven't seen, aspectRatio_override, that I suspect you have to change for it to use a new aspect ratio.  I would try '0' or '1.0' if changing the aspectRatio doesn't work.

 

For 2560 x 1440, I think you would want aspectRatio to be set at 1.7777777.  Just divide horizontal by vertical resolution.  (That's probably how they do it in the game.)

The new "For tank x" listing on missions tab is incomplete. The mid tier learning missions are listed under the "All Missions" tab but not the "For x" tab.  Checked on mostly tier V and VI but premium tier IV. None of them showed all the missions available for these tanks. Also the Tank Mastery did not show up on the "For x" tab for Jpanther and O-I experimental.

So still doing nothing about Aimbot I see. Either give it to all or take it away. Punkbuster is not hard to set up but WOT does nothing

This.  This.  This.  A thousand times this. 


EVERYONE is asking "how do I get this back?" and "Where'd the option go?

 

Why the HELL would you take away an option?

 

Please bring it back.

Couldn't agree more.  You can see the turrets 'searching' in replays.  It's ridiculous.  It's so rampant, it will just make more people do it to counter it.

 

Please, ban mods.  You can seperate them into ones that are acceptable and aren't.  do something.

I'm facing the same issues with aspect ratio myself in  Screen is set at 1366x768 4:3 ratio before the update now not only are my tanks tall and look like cartoon tanks but in the menu there are TWO 1366x768 options BOTH with 16:9 ratio options I have submitted a ticket for workaround in the 20 hours since only answer was to run a diagnostics tool and upload the report that I did.  Still no response back Customer service needs to get there crap together.

This a thousand and one times 

Why in the world did you remove this option. If you can only have one option have the option everyone wants. And it is not the current one in case you are wondering.....
