Yay, I can ask them where I can get the "good idea" stuff they smoke. 

 

Seriously though, I'm going to ask if there are plans to add a Japanese TD line.  Blitz is getting one, so why not us?

Wont be on since  I am an essential employee, but my question is bring back all the maps. Permanently . No excuses. Most of these maps should never have been removed.

The developers ARE NOT MAKING THE DECISIONS, their management IS, so what's the point?

The point is to let them know what we think! Maybe they will listen and say something to the Komisar Komrad Kommander, Or Peoples Communist control bureau.

It's a waste of our time and theirs.  I'd rather the developers be bug fixing or implementing something, even if it's nothing we asked for.  WOT's business model is so broken.

So how about accepting questions to be addressed via the feed or via email? 

 

I REALLY hate that there is no response from WG regarding issues of failure to produce maps, failure to follow through on prior promises of items to be delivered to their customers, failure to properly compensate players for 'exclusively available' tanks that are no longer exclusive in any way, etc...

Developers are not Public Relations/Communication Majors. They are (or should be) Professional Engineers working on fulfilling requirements determined by business development/management.  Engineers actually make no business decisions as to what to work on and putting them in this situation takes them away from their real work.  WOT, consider being honest about this.  If you want feedback and ideas, don't take your actual development team offline to pool up requests to pass on for management's consideration.

Great post.

From someone that has BTDT and, obviously, knows what they're talking about. 

 

 

We need some management / marketing types that we can stake out on fire ant hills to extract some answers from. 

How about this; have a thread that we can post questions that are read to these management/marketing types and they have to answer them. 

 

As a bare minimum:
1. What is the problem with getting new maps? It is long past the 'issue' stage. 

2. What steps is WoT taking to increase the player base? 

3. Given the server issues from the increase in players due to COVID19, what are they going to do to increase the player experience by decreasing server issues? 

4. Given the expressed desire that many want to play on the .EU servers and, some have done, for special events; why cannot this be an option for NA customers? Since we are 'customers' and not children of a lesser god, what does WoT have to do to standardize its customer databases and give us one common login. It is total male bovine feces that this hasn't been done and know that it can be done for I have worked on a couple of such projects at my last job. If I can play satisfactorily on the LATAM server in Sao Paulo, Brazil with a higher ping, then in 25 words or less tell my why I cannot play on the .EU with a lower ping. And "we're cheap and/or lazy" isn't an acceptable answer. Remember, we're customers. We're the ones that buy stuff out of the premium shop that goes towards your salary. Yeah, that bunch.

You can easily play on any server you want by just downloading a MOD that gives you the option to play on any server you want.  The Solo mod pack has it, as likely most of the other major mod packs.  Thanks again for helping to make the case that these Mods should be rolled into the baseline.  The only time WOT will listen/change is when their market share shrinks unfortunately.  I think they are trying too hard to diversify into too many other areas(other games, I'm waiting for World of Cars to be added) at the expense of their core business money maker WOT(where it all began).

Oh boy. Going to ask why are they constantly butchering the historical aspect of this game especially the US tree and its tanks with the latest being the T54E1. Also why do they make so many US premium and CW tanks and not expand on the US tree. The T95E6 could have easily been a Tier X for an alternate medium line.

 

Also why they do not sell the Valkyria Chronicle tanks. Surely their greed can see the other servers want them.

I'll ask why they insist on making changes that aren't needed nor anyone wants. And why do they keep butchering fun tanks that aren't Russian. Then depending on the answer, I may or may not give sympathies about their parents being siblings......

Well I can't argue with those facts but I think someone should still bit*h a little to let them know why so little of NA market is captured.
