do we get credit compensation for purchased equipment in depot - tool boxes? - seeing as they are being removed from equipment?

are we able to swap slots for equipment the same as in common test? or is it a demount & remount for gold or demount kit scenario?

You're lucky. I have 700+ pieces of complex equipment mounted.

 

How is 51 free demount kits going to fix that? Or, if I buy every single demount kit package available per account, that's 90 more kits. How am I going demount the rest?

I agree....it's one of the worst Equipment Upgrades in all the years to date that I've been playing. If it ain't broke... don't fix it! It will definitely negatively affect my enjoyment of the game and reduce the frequency of play from daily to, no more than, weekly or monthly. This is probably the warning shot I needed to start looking for other game platforms out there in the real world. Advise to to WoT... don't change the Camo, Telescope and Tool Box from the way it currently works. It will cost too much to use in the future and greatly change game play and strategy. I give it "10 Thumbs Down"!

You don't want any feedback unless it's positive; there's been plenty of negative feedback already so this is obvious.  Hang in there Krzy

You have got to be kidding me. We have to pay for bundles or play missions to get more Demount Kits? Are you for real?

Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

Changes to equipment are coming up fast and here is some information on them.

More information on these changes can be found HERE.

 

For more information on compensation please click HERE

 

I look forward to collecting more feedback about this from our community :)

 

 

Incredibly stupid choice to continue as is, but not much else to expect from Wargaming recently I suppose. Such a pity.

I agree accept for one thing.  I would change "in a long time" to "EVER".   Add to it being the worst...it is also the most complicated and unclear update ever.  I have never seen the forums with so much uproar and confusion as to what is happening on Aug. 3rd......And to think they have taken such a great game and continually hit it with a sledgehammer.

Sorry worst change ever goes to artillery stun and clown cars.

This will be a financial bloodbath for me. I have 515 tanks in my garage and they all have some form of multiple complex pieces of equipment mounted.

 

I have played this game for 7 years and have supported WarGaming with my wallet all of these years, but this update may possibly close my wallet to WarGaming permanently! This is an absolute insult to all of us collectors who have supported this game financially over the years. 

 

I'm not a very good tanker and my goal has been to own and play every Tech Tree and Premium tank in the game. I've worked hard to get my dismal stats from deep red to where they are today and have equipped my tanks with the best equipment and crews I could. I see now that I have made several huge mistakes, especially with the upcoming crew changes, and the worst mistake was in believing that WarGaming actually cared about its customers.

OK guys granted WG's communication skills inhale sharply, but I may have to get some Grey Poupon with the crow I'm about to eat given all the hell I've given them on demounts.

 

Copy pasted from another thread.

 


 

Folks go to the CT and check.  Honestly just now thought about that. :facepalm:

 

Granted things may change from the CT to the live update, but I don't think this will.  Maybe hope is a better word.  But given the graphic, etc... I'd say this will stay the same.

 

All my depot in the gear is class 1 which includes stuff demounted from lower class tanks.  Exception is nets which are all class 2. 

 

My gear on the lower tier tanks are CLASS 1 and they have that notification arrow stating if it's dismounted it won't be able to be mounted back on the current vehicle.

 

Almost scary that WG is at least taking the, in my opinion, the right approach in this regards.   Provided that it doesn't change from the CT to the live version.

 

For example my Pz38nA has Binos, Optics and a net mounted on it in that order.  It now has Class 1 Binos and Optics and no net (but I run Auxillium's so it was likely demounted).  But all my gear that we can currently demount is class 1 in the depot and of course toolboxes are now Improved Configuration gear.

 

I'll edit in screenshots momentarily.

 

EDIT:  Tier 4 should be Class 3 folks.  Also note the arrows on the gear and the tooltip warnings.  PLUS if you really want any of the "wrong class" equipment dismounted just wait it out till the next update*.  Only downside is you will have to buy Class 1 gear, but the cost offset will take care of that and then some at least in some instances as we'll net silver.

 

* BUT also the tooltip states it can be demounted for free.  And on the test server that is also the case.  "High-class" equipment can be demounted for free.  If it's not "high class" it takes gold or a demount kit to remove it.  Point being if this doesn't change all the "high class" gear will be demountable for free after the patch hits.  If you don't demount it it will be demounted automatically on the patch AFTER 1.10.

Rip my hard earned and spent credits.  This change without a free demount or refund of all equipment is just sticking it to players that have a lot of tanks with equipment on it.  From what it sounds like I get more credits if I go through all 500 of my tanks now and strip the equipment off then getting shafted on the credit value of equipment when it converts to lower tier stuff on those tanks.

 

GREAT IDEA

Rubicon 2.0.....I mean Equipment 2.0 is nothing more than a blatant attempt to cash grab, especially from long time players who have hundreds of tanks and all the complex equipment mounted on them.  Unless there is a change of heart for the compensation for mounting/demounting equipment, this will drive even more players away.

 

Congrats War Gaming.  You repeatedly find new and amazing ways of punching yourself in the d*** in the search of more money.

The equipment was not broken at all. This is just another way to penny ante us to pay for their employees. Yes, it's a free game but honestly, this has the ear mark of plain simple greed. Try being generous, you will entice more with honey than vinegar. I've spent enough on tanks. If you really wanted $$ you'd just simply sell bonds and be done with it. True, every gun jockey would have a M60 in the garage but it be part of the game. It would not be a sign of skill, just depth of wallet. Not sure If I really keep playing a game that just well, not that friendly. Ban folks then give amnesty; did they earn their ban or not? Not saying I haven't been in a bad mood and done dumb things I should not have, but that is what temporary bans are for; to remind us to be nice to the other players, because without the other players, it just would not be as fun. Good luck and have fun out there! -Bamamn
