Honestly, this will be one of the smallest full scale update in a while. Maybe 1.5.2 would have been better. I was expecting 1.6 to be the great QoL update. But, it is not. Just 4 tanks, removal of friendly fire, and some visuals. Nothing that warrants a full update.

 

So, what would I like to see?

Change the number to something like 1.5.2

Make 1.6 the great QoL update, as expected. Adding highly used mods, and fixing alot of bugs

Point? I can still have an opinion.

 

Plus, I only quit the game because I dont have the time for the grind, and have found another game that is more enjoyable. I still have the game installed, and updated. I also am still creating/ maintaining mods, so...

Removing team damage to stop trolls doesn't solve anything. It's also now exploitable to turn people blue since they may not know that can still happen. If someone runs into your shots repeatedly and/or starts pushing you out of a position and you shoot as a warning knowing you won't cause damage, you could turn blue then be killed by the troll without being able to defend yourself since they will keep the friendly protection.

Remove friendly stunning or keep team damage as it is.

well the british lights i was looking forward to -- but after testing and review of the stats of each tank -- these are the worst tanks to ever come into the game - either by stock stats, pen, dpm , damage potential, view range, camo values - as all these stats are either the same or below the current tier lights from tier 7 to 10. Crew layout for the tier 10 is asking to be killed from any HE arty shot with only 2 crew members, you will need at least a 7 skill crew commander for the tank to even think of being playable. This is overall a very very poor update. Either give the new British lights a role - either buff the camo values make them similar to how the ELC is - or do something to make them unique and fun to play at the moment its lackluster and NOT FUN at all to play

Wrong that you do no team damage but you still cause stun which is a very bad part of game.

This, to me, is the best thing wargaming has done in 4 years. I hate doing team damage when they drive in front of my shot by accident or on purpose. Trollers will troll. No way to avoid it that I can see, but this helps a LOT!!!! Thank you, thank you thank you.....

I'm really ecstatic about the new customization features available to personalize one's vehicle. It is a great way to further express your individuality on your tank of choice and help separate yourself form the masses.

I am not looking forward to anything in this update.  Once again, in stead of fixing the game, they are adding more content to make it that much more unmanageable.  How stupid is this?  War Gaming, pull your collective heads outta your butts and do something good for a change, instead of throwing more fuel to the fire. you are burning down your own house, not the player base.

No team damage on FL is fine.  I don't think it's suitable for Pubs.  Increasing the penalty system, especially for arty would of been a better approach.

I posted a very nice explanation why this line of reason is wrong in another thread about this. Go check it out.

Here is my 2 cents on this patch. The new British light tanks are really bad/under powered and I don't care much for team damage removal. Happy to see the mission revisions. Also I don't know if this a bug or on my end but it seems consumables no longer resupply automatically and yes, I checked the box under service for it to do so....

Overall looking forward to the patch but I would like to see the new decal options available to more tanks first. For instance, I have an Eagle 7 and I would like to be able to put a big Allied star on the rear engine deck or the turret - that was what they did to identify themselves as friendlies. But last time I checked, I can't, because it's a tier 7.

The British LTS are just sad looking, less DPM than wheeled vehicles? potato gun handling? almost no ammo count? mediocre mobility? middling view range? why would anyone want to play them other than wanting something British? in what way on the real server are these "fun"?   The only thing they do is make some of the German LTs (T7, 8, 10) look okay by comparison.

COMMENCE THE FLIPPING! 

 

Seriously though, I'm assuming if a player is on top of another tank and not causing them to take damage, this means that trolls can work even harder to flip an allied tank without repercussions...
