I'd like to know why SPG's aren't allowed to platoon together, even if it's limited to two in a three man platoon?  The decision to disallow platooning felt like a knee jerk reaction with little though as to how it affected players, simply to placate the more vocal arty haters.

 

Also, limiting the 30 vs. 30 game mode to tier X only seems like another bad idea.  Why do that?  Every time you make a decision to separate or aggregate players in seemingly arbitrary groups it only serves to further alienate us.

So there are tanks in the game of questionable authenticity and at least one (removed) that was a complete Wargaming fabrication, but a whole tech tree branch? So there was a money grab on CN but honestly Wargaming what do you think you are doing?

When I told my son that 30v30 was Tier X only, he calmly declared he was done with World of Tanks forever.... he had been waiting on this since it was announced, and was so excited for it, but he only has up to Tier VIII.

 

I am sure you quickly stepped in and told your son that this is just an incentive to reach out to tier X faster, right? Or did you let him give up because things did not go his way, right here right now?

Biggest thing here is the arty nerf, which is fantastic: the more cover you have, the less damage you take.

Who'da thunk it?

 

not really a nerf. what they are essentially saying is that now alot of cover on the map wont protect you again from arty. essentially a buff

I have a SPG question. When will the shell cost for all SPGs be reduce by the percentage of damage/penetration lost? The current cost for SPG is too high for the very small damage that they do and this nerfing will effect it even more!

 

they should double the shell cost

because no one like to be on the receiving end of an endless barrage of arty. you only need 2 arties to keep a tank permatracked and stunned. It happens often enough now, with a coordinated platoon, i would much rather play hello kitty online

Will the 30 v 30 mode results go towards personal missions?

 

I don't want to repeat the same situation I had with ranked battles when I got my last Obj 260 mission done and got nothing for it...

No set date, soon ™.  Maybe not moving for range, but definitely for firing angles for shooting at vehicles in cover.

 

 

they're coming soon!

 

 

:harp:

 

 

Referring to the 30v30?  Now the aforementioned "Grand Battles"

 

 

My current understanding is that it will be optional and availability will depend on the Tier X queue population.

 

 

 

no by frontline I meant 30v30 with respawns on a 3x3km map

The work on fine-tuning SPGs didn’t stop with 9.18. The team spent a few months analyzing your feedback and came up with a set of tweaks to improve the experience for players in arty and those fighting them.

 

This is good news. We have been arguing for a better experience for arty players. It must get old hugging that redline with gawd-mode view and two aiming tools, "splashing" multiple tanks in random spam shots, and  to super-snipe without anyone being able to shoot back at them. Good to hear this!

i want to know if the brummbar spg will ever be introduced in t he german line.  it could even be a prem. tier vi since it has t hat absurd 100-115mm armor according to it's historical stats.  granted it's range won't be so good kind of like a stock gunned grille's is but man that armor would let it survive more than the other tier vi spg's can handle.  it's based on the pz. iv chassis as well so it's not a sturmtiger.

Question regarding the 30v30 battle mode. Based on the wording, it is implied the new mode will come up in the random battle queue along with standard battles, encounter, and assault modes, when you're playing tier 10. Is this correct?

 

Better not be and dont think it was implied.It will be a diff mode.

Wow, that got a little more attention than I think it needed.

 

Reaching Tier X is not the goal of this game. 

 

He's not mad about anything.  I said "calmly".  He knows WG don't owe him anything, but he had been waiting for this feature, and with it not being available for him, he's choosing to put his time into something other than something that left him disappointed.  Good for him.  It's not like he's quitting his basketball team because he had a bad game.  No one is relying on him playing WoT.

Apparently 30v30 will draw players from the random battle queue, in the same way that Encounter & Assault do.
