Soon means when?  And I love that when you post a question directly to cabbage that it doesn't get answered (my post yesterday about when we will get WOT Academy updates).  Soon?  What's that mean?

 

Soon™  means: "not in the distant future™"

You mean the plans for Havok that they canceled 3 years ago when they realized it was not a realistic option?

In other words wg is reducing the gold once again.

 

And trying to find a way to spin it so that it somehow looks like you're not really only getting a tiny fraction of the gold you used to get.

You mean like this?

 

 

Thanks DUDE, that looks SOOOOOOOOOO impressive, but that darn T3.  I can't get the master badge in it even with a 4 skill crew and FOOD and spamming premium ammo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Listen son, I am a better player than you because I am better at lower tier tanks which is where the skill lies.  Anybody can do well in tier 10's where there is little skill involved, unlike tiers 2-5.  U go play your tier 10's, lose credits, spam gold, play long boring camping matches where you side scrape corners for 10 minutes shooting each other in the cupolas and I will continue to have FUN playing the more high skill low tiers where the games are more dynamic, the maps are HUGE based on the size of the tanks and view range, matches rarely last more than 5 minutes, theres NEVER any camping and I play without a premium account and without spending any money on the game or needing credits.

 

GL, HF

How the hell can you play the T3 HMC 434 battles?

 

It was the T18, the most fun tank in the game, but I suck at TDs, LOL, and never got the Mastery Badge (embarrassing, I know). I suck at non-turreted TDS, but also in my defense I was a BRAND NEW player when I played all those games in the T18 and back then there were T18's pro's with 5,000, even 10,000 and 20,000 games just in the T18 which made it hard to ACE because they were so good in it. 

 

Now, it's so bad I tried to ACE it and it was hard.  It has such bad bloom and NO ARMOR.  I am going to give it another try this weekend as it is embarrassing. 

 

BTW, check out my Kamakazi medals.  I have 563.  My first major goal playing this game was to get over 1,000 Kamakazi's.  Back in the day there were only two players in the game with over 1,000.  I lost interest after 500, but it fun.  That is why I have so many games in the IIIJ as it is fast, heavy, turns on a dime and has strong frontal armor and the same with the IIIE (it was called something else back then).  I also have a lot of RAMS in the Auf Panther.  I LOVED that tank.  I wish WG would sell it.  I have not spent money on this game in over 3 years, but I would buy that tank in a heartbeat.

No they clearly stated that the downtime is being used to get rid of bugs before the new system is implemented.

 

And WG is soooooooooooo CREDIBLE.

PM'd about the WoT Academy question, as for "soon" - It's not an intentionally ambiguous answer designed to cause frustration.  Sometimes when we are working on new stuff we have a whole lot of ideas, and have to whittle them down to what is possible and what is practical.  While we're in that stage of determination it doesn't help to give out any details because nothing is finalized yet - but it's not that far off either.  

 

It makes ZERO sense to remove the old format and then say, well, we don't have a new one ready to replace it.  Why not "develop" the new system while the old system was still in affect and then have a seamless transfer?  Why not have the old tournament Director, DANCE, help you do that since she was the expert instead of shipping her off to Siberia.  You do realize you have a test server and a sandbox to test these things then it is a seamless transfer.  Hey guys, great news, we have developed a new tournament system so we are taking the old tournaments down for one week and new system will be up the following week. 

 

I predict the weekly tournaments with any sort of decent gold payout are gone for good.  We will see if I am correct, but from what we hear from WG they have not even STARTED developing the new tournaments so they might be ready in 2019 and if that is the case, why bother??????????

 

How long did it take WG to remove the Waffle?  Several YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WG says the Grille is OP and played so often they removed it from ONTRACK because they don't want people buying it on sale, but they can't nerf it a little more so it is not played so much.

Hey guys, I do apologize for the tournament limbo, but as Q's post earlier this month stated the tournaments are on hold for right now while we resolve some structural issues.  We are currently working on a new tournament format and will have more information for you soon™.

 

All you need to do is 1v1's on mittengard, but move the spawns closer to the cap circles to prevent spawn sniping *Boom, done*

The most battles I have in any tank is my first premium, the T14.  709 battles.  And although I have 2 Top Guns and 13 High Calibers in it (plus 1 MoE), I was SO CRAPPY in it that even now I have a 46.97% win record in it.  Jeez!  I do not even WANT to know what my record was in that damn thing before I started getting serious about playing this game as a more effective team member!

LOL, by 5,000 battles I was deep RED because I did not know anything about the game or stats and was just bombing around ramming stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!  I wasn't using equipment or consumables.  I just got tracked and sat there until they repaired, 15 seconds, ROFL.

I don't see any reason to believe they're not working on the bugs.  I've experienced them in tournaments before.

I do, subterfuge.  Rather than announce torneys are over, WG can just put it off, and put it off, like HAVOC, for YEARS
