I love this game but I wonder why you talk about HD models and the game is totally busted.

Most of my game friends have left the game because of the contact list& chat issue and in case you have not noticed people leaving this game because they cannot socialize!!! 

 

PS. Why you ignoring the NA server population?

Ever think of the possibility that there is more than 1 department in WG working on stuff? Art team isn't the balance team, nor is the balance team the dev team

Besides the point what is it to you if I ask a legitimate question and possible would like to have an answer as well.

dance210 has replied in the past on the chat issue topic questions.

Hello,

 

The staff working on the Common Test, including HD models, are not the same staff working on fixing the contact list issues.

A-HA!  Soooo, someone is working on fixing the contact list issue!   Is this an official WG statement on the issue?   Hmmm?

 

I may have missed the press release, but outside of customer service responses to players putting in a ticket, this is the first "statement" on the issue I've ever seen.

 


 

BTW, its funny to see you're the only WG employee posting anything on the forums.  If we listen carefully, we can hear your keyboard clicks echoing in a giant empty office somewhere...

Maybe you should have more staff working on the contact list issues.

HD models have and will always be a waste of resources.  They are not content, i.e. new maps, tanks or battle types.  As such, they bring no real value to the game and until 90% of the issues brought forth by the player base is addressed, there should be zero effort put into HD models that in no way contribute to the enjoyment of game play.

If someone needs to justify their job by saying HD models are needed, that person should be let go to free up payroll for other area's that are productive to the game.  Otherwise, all you're telling us is that every excuse ever given as to why some things haven't been done in the past, due to poor pc's used by the RU group so what you ask for wont be implemented, has been a lie.  The HD models will cause these poor PC's to operate worse than with out them.  So perhaps we've been mislead from the beginning?

there's people working on fixing the contact list issues?

 

Kappa

 

while my contact list has not rebroken, his point is valid.  as a corporation you guys are expending way too much resources on meaningless eye candy and not fixing playability issues, or you know, things that lead to enjoyment of the entire player base such as diversifying maps.

 

the map rotation algorithm is obviously still not sufficient for NA.  in stanked battles, back to back battles on the same map, and even on the same side was common.  so too it's common to get the same crappy tiny maps like ensk 2 times out of 5 when playing mid-week-day.

lol, well yeah nothing gets fixed from WG they just stack bugs on top of bugs and broken crap on top of broken crap.

 

Work on useless issues like HD tanks needs to stop until the game is fix, balanced, and not the same crap maps constantly. Put large open maps back in the game.

New HD Models:

 

Universal Carrier 2-pdr: Tier II TD - Really? Is anyone asking for HD models down in Tier II? How many people actually play this thing longer than is necessary to move on to the Valentine AT?

Pz. Kpfw. IV Hydro: Tier V Premium that is currently not in the store. Gonna bring it back to milk the cash cow a little more? Otherwise, why bother?

SU-25 & SU-5: Tier III & IV Arty. How many people are going to get to see them camped out on the redline?

M36 Jackson & the Easy 8 Sherman: Tier VI TD & Medium. Finally! A couple of tech tree tanks at a reasonable tier that lots of people drive and face off against.

M3 Light: Tier III Premium that isn't in the store. Another item coming back to the store for a quick cash grab?

AMX 105 AM mle. 47: Tier IV Arty. Again, who cares how pretty artillery is?

Churchill Gun Carrier: Tier VI TD. Good, another actual tech tree tank.

Lorraine 39L AM: Tier III Arty. Another one?

D1: Tier II LT - More of this low level stuff? Are the seal clubbers down at Tier II really lobbying for HD models to shoot at?

AMX 13 105AM mle. 50: Tier V Arty. Again with this French Arty?

AMX 13 F3 AM: Tier VI Arty. Oh. My. God. It's like a broken record.

 

So, okay, let's tally it up:

1) 13 new HD Models. Not a bad total, but let's dig deeper.

2) 6 of them are artillery, 2 Russian & 4 French, and nothing above Tier 6. Arguably the least played and most hated class in the game and it gets almost 50% of the new models. Excellent allocation of resources, gentlemen.

3) 2 Premiums that aren't in the store. (Yet???) Are there a lot of people calling for HD models of tanks that are this uncommon? Or is it just a precursor to putting them back on sale? Is it really all about the money at this point?

4) A Tier II TD & a Tier II Light. HD Models for low Tier tanks that people move through as quickly as possible to get to whatever is next. Time and energy well spent, I'm sure.

5) In the end, we are left with 3 new models that are actually worthwhile: the Jackson, the Easy 8, and the Churchill GC. Some people might argue that only 2 are worthwhile.

 

In any case, 3 out of 13 isn't good. After the K-Car HD model mess, I would think that you guys might set the bar a little higher. I guess not.
