When are we going to get invites to do that?! Just saying.

 

Haha TWA is still in Closed Alpha, so codes aren't readily available. I would suggest keeping an eye out on Social Media or the forums for any contests that may happen or for more news about the game.

What is your opinion on re colours? Are they OC or are they just stolen reposted ip by delusional fandoms?

 

 

My opinion is that its spelled "colors" :trollface:.  Also def copypasta

also how much anime do u binge watch on the weekends

 

Very little, I have seen some anime I enjoy (Watanabe's stuff is great) but mostly it's not for me.  I'm currently doing a full chronological Star Trek watch through (Finishing up Deep Space 9 for the first time)

Hey, man! I was just wondering, whats your opinion on arty? I find it pretty balanced how I can be stunned for a whole game. It adds an extra scoop of gfuel to my addiction... 

 

I personally don't enjoy the playstyle but I also don't find it that difficult to avoid getting chain stunned.  Granted, I mostly play more mobile tanks and it does make me a little more passive than I would otherwise be.

Welcome!

 

My 1 recommendation to WG is better communication with the players.

Example, we know the in-game chat/contact list has been a problem. We know WG is working on in.

...well, we assume this as WG never told us they knew it was a problem and were working on it.

Many complaints (arty, RNG) are polarizing and I can see WG not getting into the middle of them, but a problem universal to the player base (like broken contact list) should have WG pushing info out to let us know that 1) they know, and 2) that they are working in it.


 

Thanks,

~MDM

 

I agree, and I will be doing my best to fill that role adequately.

You got my attention at iRacing because I used to own precisionracingleague.com which has a bunch of iRacing leagues (and Assetto, F1 201x, Project Cars, etc).  Ovals or Road?  What cars are you mostly racing?

 

LBT and other events have ruined my attempt to run a full season recently but generally I enjoy the Lotus 79 the most.  I am terribly slow compared to the top guys but I have a lot of fun in the CTC.  I also race Skippys, Fixed Trucks, and Fixed Indy Oval occasionally.  I have most of the dirt content but haven't put enough time in to feel good about racing it.  I'm interested in the Ford GTE as well but haven't put enough time into it yet to race.

OMG, we need to be best friends! :) L79 is my favorite car in any sim of all time!  I ran in the CTC for about 5 seasons in a row maybe 2-3 years ago... and Skippy might be my second favorite!  In fact, just finding someone who plays both WoT and iRacing is a rarity!  I haven't had time to keep going in the CTC, but I jump in a L79 practice a few times a month just so I don't forget how to drive it entirely.

I think the forums could use a thread to be used by Wargaming only to publish known issues.  Communication is a two-way street.  Just a simple place to acknowledge there's a known issue could save

a lot of fuss.  You'll see multiple threads started about player's contact list for instance.  I myself have un-installed mods, the game, cleaned my registry, and downloaded everything again in the past thinking 

the problem was on my end.  A lot of wasted resources for everybody by keeping players in the dark.  Even mentioning problems with 3rd party add-ons.  If you know XVM screws up Boot Camp, put it there.

Doing tech-support, we would sometimes put a notification in the phone system about certain problems like a virus that had just come out.  Instead of tying us up, customers would be contacting their antivirus

company.  Time is money.   

 

Coming to the forums, I'm most likely to come check out what is new through the 'Recent Topics' section.  And although I think it's great that player's issues be heard, it's often nothing but whine, whine, whine.  

It floods out the rest, and just adds to the game's toxicity.  I would suggest having an area to vent, which would have it's own 'Recent' section.  Compartmentalize the negative vibes to one spot.  Let the recent topics

be about Game-play, guides, etc.  Besides a 'Recent Complaints' section, I would consider a 'Recent Compliments' section as well... that allows mentioning of a player.  If you were tracked, stunned, and a one-shot kill,

and a pub pushed in, to take a hit in order to save you.  If a teammate flipped your tank back over.  If you were completely out-numbered and a scout lite everything up so your TD could smash the enemy, etc.

It would be nice for a place to give players props.      Recent Topics/Recent Complaints/Recent Compliments

 

BTW, welcome to the insanity.

Good luck dealing with this crowd, I hope you have the patience of a God because even a Saint would have shot themselves by now. This community is more needy than the spoiled daughter of a five star actor and more toxic than a an ill-mannered, uneducated pirate from the old days in England.

This. WGNA needs to communicate more with the community out of the usual standard announcements and news.

Nice!  The L79 is a ton of fun and the CTC is a great group of guys.   L79 is such a fun car for me, having to psych yourself up to trust the downforce and go faster is intense.

@CabbageMechanic. I don't know if anyone else has thanked you for this yet, but as soon as @moon111 brought up the known issue about the Contact List, wargaming higher ups tossed a notification onto the main page. So thank you.
