Lack of attention to detail in regards to vehicle balancing. Some vehicles got over buffed and over nerfed when they just needed slight adjustments. Moreover,  some over powered vehicles were not addressed such as the T26e5 and Lowe which clearly need changes. 

 

Overall,  I think 9.17.1 is reinforcing the idea of power creep. I'd prefer the balancing department focus more on fine details rather than giving into people's complaints and the marketing department who are both biased towards unbalancing the game. 

 

WG Marketing Department 

-How can we make lots of money? 

-I know! We can introduce new OP premium tanks every month. Then buff all the non-premiums later to give the appearance that our game is balanced and not Pay2win! 

-Genius!

I noticed that a while back WoT got rid of the screen aspect ratio settings under graphics.  This seems to cause an issue for some players because their game appears distorted and ultrawide monitors display the images incorrectly on some systems.  For some reason the game chooses an incorrect aspect ratio for some players.  It appears that the players named Wreckoning and Savage__Apples have that issue in this thread:

http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/532012-219-aspect-ratio-is-bad/

 

I manually edited the screen aspect ratio in the preferences.xml to get my ultrawide monitor to display correctly.  Also for windowed mode, there is no aspect ratio size option and no aspect ratio listed under graphics resolutions.

Ghostprime - arclight58 has a thread regarding no ability to select different aspect ratios. His complaint is that his $700 video card and $1000 monitor are rendered useless. He is now forced to run around in "squashed looking tanks". Please provide comments to this end. Thanking you in advance.

 

I replied to his thread with what fixed the issue for me.

The 50M looks like a bug now.

When I alt+tab then return back to the game it always goes to windowed mode.  I have to go back to settings and set it back to fullscreen.

(Implemented automatic selection of an appropriate screen ratio; thus removed the corresponding option from the “Graphics” menu)

 

 

 


 

Pls Wargaming remove this thing, give us back the selection of the screen ratio!!!

More notice needs to be given. Very irritated that I go to bed with nothing on the website, get up the next day and go to work only to find out the patch is on it's way, and by the time I get home the server is down for the patch. Goodbye to a day's worth of tankrewards missions.

 

Needs to be more than under a day's notice.

I was backing up, holding the S key down when Windows opens a help box in the middle of my screen " Need help fixing sticky keys?".  It disabled my game controls long enough to get me killed. Only happened once though, may be just a fluke.

9.17.1 bugs out on MacOS X when tabbing away (command-tab). Trying to activate the game only shows a tiny micro-size version of the window in the upper left corner. Never happened before.

PS. On the RU and EU servers was 252 u available the same day the update was publicized.  Wargaming has proven again that the NA servers are the red headed stepchild!!!

Why can i not choose aspect ratio of 4-3 instead of auto choosing toy boxy looking tanks? wth?

 

I'm able to chose 1920x1080 16:9. I didn't even see an auto selection.

That happens when I go in and out of sniper mode  (L Shift) 5 times in a row. I just then disable sticky keys.

the damage log needs some improvements

Today we see the Defender invasion, so as I was used with my onld QB mod to display damage dealt, whenever I hit the same target it said how many times I hit it, what tank, total damage and last shot's damage

My last battle my hitlog was:

Defender

Defender

Defender

 

Also it should include more entries as an option or show all entries on command

 

Another usefull thing you should implement is on holding down Alt, you get the last known HP of enemy tanks still in the battle

 

Also, add a "non-elite" button in the tank selection menu
