If I weren't planning to wait to see what specials they offer around the holidays, I'd pick up what looks like a very decent T8 heavy for less than $30(after 20% TR coupon).

the title of the sale is so outrageously funny, back by popular demand...

I am in the NA server chat room everyday, for most of the day.

I have never, ever, seen anyone remark about how they would like the sale of the vk.

nor have I seen anyone remark on this forum avenue.

 

I wish wot would sell in the premium shop whatever it is they are smoking, I would like to try some.

Didn't they just sell it last month? Who cares about premium tanks anymore anyways? I've stopped buying them because I have too many as it is.

Very fun tank, not that I've had a lot of games in mine yet.  Had a GREAT game - though still a loss - on Lakeville yesterday.  Lots of *bong* *bong* *bong* noises....

You should ask for a 50% consumables sale if your asks are going to be granted so easily.  :sceptic:

I've been resisting spending money on the game for quite a bit, even the couple of times you dangled the T-44-100 in front of me (over bundled) and even with a 20% off coupon.

 

then you threw a 30% off coupon in front of me after a couple of weeks after a rental...

 

well played, well played...

 

now imagine how much money you guys would make if you sold map blockers...

I did. It's a difficult thing to argue when there are so many ways to earn consumables for free in the game. Bundles, missions, Tank rewards, all offer consumables. 50% off is hard to swing when all you have to do is play the game and you get them for free.

WoT premium offers you to two Map blockers. If you don't have WoT premium you get one.

given their track record on maps, and how awful many of the new maps and reworked maps are, I doubt that would work...

I'm aware

 

two blocked for prem time is not sufficient given how many truly cancerous maps exist, and/or 8 year old boring maps that have been functionally identical this long...  thus why the only premium time I've had in over a year now is from missions, tank rewards, and/or battle-rewards (whatever you call those things that give out the blue print fragments, etc)

I already bought this thing twice and I regretted it, both times.  Good tank, don't get me wrong.  But, WOW, it is purely team dependent.  Get a bunch of tomatoes and you're toast.

Very true.  Here is the thing - the maps are garbage.  I have Overlord and Airfield blocked.  Overlord is a "moron beach parade" on what is really a great map but it gets tossed because of that one aspect.  Airfield has always been bad, especially given that 1/3rd of the map can't be used (hello mountains and water).  If I could buy more, I'd toss:

 

- Ensk

- Empire's Border (hello Sacred Valley 2.0)

- Mines

- Province

- Widepark

- Paris

- Serene Coast

- Tundra

- Westfield

 

Sadly, the maps, listed above, are good maps but they've been screwed up by imbalances on sides, overall size, firing lanes, the inability for some tanks to even function on them, etc.  You tell me that, because you offer two map bans, that it is ok.  Yet, you ignore the fact that we'd all probably ban 5-10 maps, if we could spend the money to do it.  Your analytics, alone, should be proof enough that your current map designs are bad.  Not to sound like a jerk, here, but how many face-punching corridor maps, with NO flanking options, are you going to keep throwing our way while completely ignoring the fact that we don't want to play that style?  What's more, you've got 3-4 maps, designed specifically for Grand Battles, that never get played because the bulk of the community doesn't want to play 30v30 on a map that is barely larger than Prok.

 

I get your point and I completely understand that 5-10 ban slots isn't feasible.  But, at some point, your counterparts, in Minsk, are going to have to come to grips that they're not good at tank balance and they're woefully worse at map design balance.  And, if someone asks for something on the board, it might be worth investigating, not to pursue, but to figure out the "why".

re: grand battles.  the issue isn't necessarily that we don't want to play those maps/modes - it's that we can't force them.  they're a surprise.

 

if they were a mode, I'm sure plenty of folks would turn them on to make personal mission grinding if nothing else more efficient...

 

my personal most loathed maps include literally any map that is less than 1km x 1km and/or the funnels and half and half maps.  half and half maps are bad, because the "half" that's for "field play" is always painfully too small to actually play field effectively.  (think ensk with 5 LTs and 4 TDs)

 

If I could block all of the following, I'd pony up to do so:

  • Abbey
  • Airfield
  • Ensk
  • Paris
  • Mannerheim Line
  • Mt Pass
  • Lakeville
  • Live Oaks
  • Ruinberg
  • widepark (very rarely see this based on the tiers I play most)
  • province (thankfully rarely see this)

 

it's not that I'm incapable of playing on, and even excelling on these maps.  it's that I loathe them.  if I wanted to play on a DOTA Map, I'd play DOTA...  (not that all of the above are, but there are plenty that would fit perfectly in that game)

 

I despised every single solitary second of this battle:  http://wotreplays.eu/site/5060530#mountain_pass-thepigsheflies-t-44-100  enough so that I tilted and spammed literally every APCR round I had, even when I didn't need it...  (that being said, the shell velocity of the APCR round is very danged nice)

I would much prefer to see map conversations in a thread of there own, you both have very good points and I would be interested to see if a thread about maps and blocking would get any traction.

I have 2 maps blocked and have been content with that and only because I really, really do not like them.
