Hey, everyone! 

 

I've got a bit of news for you regarding the Shop.

 

Our dev team has been working on a new in-game shop for several months, and it's finally available for testing! We plan to change the shop's interface and functionality, so we're starting a separate Common Test specifically for this new feature.

 

Why have we changed things? Well, the current shop allows you to browse through the list of available vehicles, modules, shells, etc. There are also filtering tools and special offers. However, the design hasn't been updated for a bit, leaving much to be improved. 

 

We have two main goals with the new Shop:

 

  • Functionality: We want "Shop 2.0" to become the go-to place for anyone looking to get new in-game content. Due to this, Shop 2.0 will provide extensive information about every item available
  • Convenience: Instead of small consecutive changes, we decided to make a new design from scratch and focus on usability and the overall look

 

We want to see what should be improved, changed, or even removed, so we'd like to ask everyone to join the test and share their feedback. Please leave your feedback over in my WCFR Shop 2.0 Post.

 

Also, here is the TEST CLIENT INSTALLER

 

I'm going to break down the new features in the spoiler below, but be sure to check out our article here: Explore the New In-Game Shop

 

Here's how the Common Test Will Work:

 

After joining the test, you’ll be provided with a certain amount of all in-game currencies (Credits, Bonds, and Gold) to buy in-game items.

  • 100,000,000 XP
  • 100,000,000 Silver
  • 20,000 Gold
  • 50,000 Bonds

 

We’ll be running an emulation of purchasing Gold and Premium Account with real money — to test the full-circle functionality. If you lack the Gold to purchase a Premium Package and decide to buy more of the currency, choose a bundle and click “Purchase”  — doing so takes you to the Premium Shop, where a payment operation will be completed. Upon release, Shop 2.0 will allow linking and remembering preferred payment methods by default, but during this Common Test, the operation will be automatic.

 

Features

 

 

What's after this test?

 

At this stage, it’s crucial for us to know your opinion about the new Shop. We'll continue holding internal QA sessions to make sure it’s fast and reliable from the technical standpoint, but we also want to be confident Shop 2.0 performs well in terms of user experience, too. Based on your impressions, we’ll introduce necessary changes both prior to and after the release. Please let us know your thoughts!

 

Thanks, everyone!

So we're getting a function to remember our payment method, which isn't recommended by myself, but we still don't have a check box to remember our log in server?  When can we expect that?

Maybe fix the fricken good luck playing your tier 8 and expecting to NOT feed the tier 10's MM? Oh and its just so bad [edited]how you guys have the global map crapgo on at the same time as you plan to do ranked battles!!! Just fricken sweet......Can you not just space this crap out? We go weeks to months with nothing but the same ol on-tracks for tier 10's most have or don't want by now. Its not like there's a huge influx of new players...

I think it's been proven over and over that all the games faults are caused by those Pref. MM tanks and their 4% total game play.  Calm down.

would have been better to pull out the background premium tank ( you know the one that you click atleast between 3-5 time per day for no reason ) in your garage.. it take what 20 minute coding to not see it ? a little check buttom : Do NOT show ANY Premium tank in your background ... is that possible... ? mayby in 5 more years... !!!!

I don't think that "shop 2.0" was on anyone's top ten list of things this game needs right now. If it sounds trollish of me,  it's not meant that way.  WG's priorities are wrong:

We want new maps and we want Frontline back.

In all my years of playing this game, in all the clans I've been in...I've literally never heard someone complain about the in-game shop.  They may have needed help finding a tab at first, but that was it.  There are soooooo many other things that need work done and improved on that I agree with you 100% that WG priorities are wrong.

Would their priorities be wrong if they WANT IT TO FAIL? I'm amazed at how the premium store has changed in the number of, and the cost of, tank bundles for ridiculous amounts of money....and many are crap tanks. I'm not one to say the sky is falling but it doesn't smell right trolling for money living by the "a sucker is born every minute" rule.

How about more maps and doing something to correct the abysmal 3-5-7 match making.

I have never heard anybody complaining about premium shop access.

Wargaming you should check your priory list because I assume you reading upside down.

I understand your position - point of procedure though, the team working on in-game shop stuff is composed of platform devs, not game devs.  There are separate teams working on both fixing/improving current 1.0 maps, completing more 1.0 map rebuilds, and improving Frontline for the next iteration.  More maps coming next (major) patch.

They aren't talking about premium shop, but the actual in game store where you buy equipment and shells and things.

 

But you're still not wrong, they could be working on so many other things that would mean so much more to the players.  My recommendation is to stop giving them money.

 

Also, @CabbageMechanic....Thanks again for getting back to me in those PM's.  I appreciate being left out to dry by someone telling me to send them info so they can help with a problem.

Gnomon or Cabbage, other than the Store update, is there anything else that has been added to the test client?  Polish line?  Maps?  Nerfs, Buffs?

 

Thanks.

"improving Frontline"? uh oh nerfs and unfun incoming

still though Cabbage could you pass on down the line that perhaps we'd like to hear more about what they're doing to improve the game? if they did this more often we wouldn't be so salty about hearing about something as trivial as making the store "easier to use"

I’m sorry, but I concur with what appears to be the majority.  This is not something any of us seem to want.  We want Frontline back, we want more maps, etc.  Priorities of the game maker are clearly get more money from us.  With respect, that will happen faster doing what we’ve asked for...

 

Edit: as always, thank you for replying to us, cabbage

I personally am excited for more ways to spend my gold, as I currently have too much between Christmas boxes and tank bundling. On the test server right now, they have tanks for gold that previously weren't, along with lots of bulk discounts, including with bonds (not sure how you'd get bulk amounts of bonds though).

Thanks for the response, the game has a content problem-as in three years of virtual stagnation. Sure they're a separate unit- but the money and resources spent on that unit are not getting spent on units delivering maps, etc. Just bad PR.

Personally I'm onboard with any additions... I'm more curious about how giving everyone who participates that much currency... could I get a little more detail on how that's going to work?  Thanks

Are you guys kidding me this has to be one of the most monumentally stupid things to add to the game that i have ever seen.

 

How about trying to do something useful for a change? like get rid of the Provence map and make a whole new map. lets not just re-run crap maps from the crap map list.

how about fixing the missing impact problem you know shot at a tank and nothing happens with exception of you reloading.

 

You know just minor stuff like that.

float down out of your inane cloud and fix some real problems.
