If World of Tanks 2 was ever to be developed as a tabula rasa (clean slate design, everything redone from scratch), what game features would you like to see?

 

I will start with 2 that I have been thinking about ever since I started playing this game since beta.

 

Fully destructible buildings

Right now, only certain buildings are destructible and they don't create rubble. This would very much act like Battlefield's V destructible buildings, except that it would be returned to WoT game mechanics, where larger caliber shells may damage the building more. Artillery would be really good for bringing down structures, potentially disabling tanks (or tracking them) as they are buried in the rubble. There may also be the possibility of shooting tanks around corners by chipping away the edge of the building.

 

The physical appearance of tanks changes with battles

Your tank starts shiny and with unbent mud guards and side skirts. As you play the game, dirt and other debris accumulates on the tank. The paint starts chipping off. Tank components are bent, items on top of the tank could be knocked off, tracks are worn out (physical appearance only, does not affect the tank's performance in any way). You can choose to go into battle with a tank that looks like it has seen plenty of action or you can restore it to its original condition (mechanism for this could range from paying a small amount of resources or by some sort of action, like having your mouse cursor behave as a magic broom and you would just sweep your tank clean in the garage).

 

Now that you have read through my requested features, what are some ideas that you have been thinking about which would make World of Tanks a better game?

I just want arty to be gone and he to be made worthless to be shooting as a standard round.  You should have to actually aim to do dmg not just hit a upper plate for 400 every shot

Artillery should be made more accurate and loading times shortened.

Artillery should be made obsolete and removed from the game....

For me it would be:

  1. Simplified crew skills
  2. No chinese copy/fake tanks (real tanks like type 64 would be ok) (only the chinese as other blueprint/imaginary tanks are at least unique, different and interesting)
  3. No wheelie bois
  4. Simplified lower tier tech tree, I like the idea of less tanks at first and more as you progress, like a real tree branch

Negative.  Artillery should be buffed and made more playable.  Would like AP rounds to come back as an option like it once was.

I would also like to see KV-1s be rebuffed and allowed to be a great

tank again.

destructible buildings sounds great

bigger maps

more real tanks

wheeled tanks for all nations or none

 

of course, this ain't happening so....

It's like imagining what you would do if you won the lottery :P

I would like to see Wargaming withdraw the release of player statistical information to 3rd party vendors, then institute a division of Random Matches that while not being SBMM would prevent the most accomplished players from playing against everyone else.  Essentially two "Divisions" of players.

Just imagine, WG already has an arty free tank game... :ohmy:

 

Can you say "WoT Blitz?" 

 

 

Sure you can... :great:

 

...and amazingly enough, WoT Blitz is free to play... :P

Fully destructible buildings would be great.  It would be awesome if Himmelsdorf could be completely destructible in that way, though with that being a thing, I'd like to see it be much bigger so it would be a veritable urban maze of buildings.  And when the destructible buildings crumble, have the material heap stay and be part of the map through the end of the battle.

 

Bigger maps would be wonderful.  Allow flanking vehicles room to actually flank!  Allow for more than just the usual 3 corridors of egress.  Add complexity to the maps so that "by the blimp" doesn't always have to be where heavys do what heavys do.  And allow for some randomness in bush and depression placement.

 

More tank skins so as an example, all of the different nations that used the M4 Sherman could have their own national look to it (beyond just a flag).

 

Grand battles at tiers 5 thru 10.

 

More SPG tech trees.

 

A seasonal rotation of premium tanks on the tech trees.

 

A seasonal rotation of maps;  Prok leaves the rotation during the summer and Fiery Salvent takes it's place.  Winter Himmelsdorf takes the place of Himmelsdorf during the winter, and so on.

 

A tier 1 thru 5 team players vs team bots, similar to WoWs Co-OP mode, so all players, not just new ones, have the opportunity to play in a more relaxed manner and work out the kinks in their play, while accruing only a fraction of the credits and experience they'd get in normal play.  Have the stats gained here remain separate from normal game stats so that while players could club bots all they want, the stats wouldn't artificially inflate their overall numbers.  And just like WoWs, no medals or badges in this mode.

 

Add more meaningful crew skills.

 

Keep the number of lower tier tech tanks intact; heck, add to them!  They tend to be more historical than the upper tiers which is an attraction!

 

Keep premium rounds superior pen while reducing their damage so that each different munition has it's good and bad to it.

 

Tank guns should not be phantom with respect to other tanks;  if they get banged around on other tanks, let them suffer repairable damage.

You mean like a new T6+ off branch of double-barrel Russian wheeled arty?

Lol!  I was thinking Chinese and Japanese need SPG tech branches, but sure, why not?

Get rid of those 45% and lower bots that only do 0-3 shots per battle and the server would be great again, larger maps are desperately needed for high tiers.

WoT Blitz is a simple and viable option for those of you needing an easier version of WoT... :great:
