The Boiling Point

 

Remember the good old days when IS-3 Defender was the main topic of rage amongst the Blitz community? Yea - the good old days.

 

I think the main reason everybody is so “outspoken” about this update is due to the fact that we have been “poked” and “laughed at” for the past year and we have reached the boiling point.

 

Update 3.8 was the final nail in the coffin.

 

1.First you messed up most of the maps.

 

Dead Rail – everybody loved the old map, nobody was complaining about it you had to go ahead and change it.

Vineyards – due to this dusk/dawn theme you have going on there, it is impossible to see anything on the screen in the sunny apartment or outside. You may call it “unique feature”, but then also make it unique on the map roster showing up only in the evenings and the town is a completely useless “bot trap”.

Copperfield – this is really a jewel. Whoever thought it’s a great idea to introduce this map to high tier play should get kicked in the head.

Falls Creek – Was another example of being an excellent map that was completely ruined and for what, yes, so you can set up cap circles for SUPREMACY

 

 

2. Supremacy

 

Again, nobody asked for this. And not only you have included it in the game but you have made it nearly impossible to avoid it. The amount of EXP you get from these battles outweighs the amount you can gather from a regular game. Meaning pushing up EXP required for mastery games to not so easily attainable level even having a great game in regular mode. The tournaments are only played in supremacy. And why would you persist of giving players supremacy missions when they have it switched off?

 

3. Chat

 

Really? Just switch it off? The worst decision ever made. And you thought censoring word SP1C was bad.

 

4. Enrichment

 

WOW, just WOW. Why would anyone do that, even with a recent 50% discount. On top of all that the tanks that could be worth it, isn’t on the list.

 

5. Instant Upgrade

 

This might have been a neat feature, when you run 25% discount promotions. But anybody with at least half of brain lobe would understand that paying £5 for tracks isn’t the wisest of choices (30.000 exp at tier 9 -> 1200 gold -> 1400 gold £4.99)

 

I probably missed something but I think I brought my point of view across. This list of constant fails has had everybody fuming for awhile now. And it has happened, the boiling point.

Update 3.8 was the final nail in the coffin.

You have changed 905, it feels weird. Don't let the sword of Damocles ban hammer alter you. Anyway completely agree as always.

ah, well said.

 

may i also add the constant nerfing of profitability? almost every patch for two years now, they have added a slight credit expense, openly or covert...

- the "rebalance" that was presented as an improvement, but was actually a nerf.

- provisions

- camo

- new super armoured tier 8 tanks forcing people to use more prammo

- nerf of standard ammo but not prammo, like ru251 (thats only a credit nerf, not preformance nerf)

and many other tiny ones.


REVERSE 3.8!!!  (and check out The Dassem Channel, youtube.)

I did that, now I get even more angry when I realise I'm paying 90 quid every month and not going, still it prevents me spending even more on other more meaningless hobbys like oh let me think!!!!!!

That's a bit steep, for that amount take a year worth, get some equipment at home and workout whenever you feel like it, assuming you have a space for it.

1. I like the new dead rail, copafeel and vinyards. And dont mention old Balls Creek, awful map. 

New dead rail is more or less the same but it has made more of the map viable. 

Old coppafeel was once used by tier X too and it was fine then also. They also got rid of campers corner, noob hill and that trolling area that you could climb to. All positives. Vinyards is clear for me. One of my favourites. 

 

2. Supremacy is awful. And it encourages bad play in encounter mode too. 

 

3. Chat, err, this doesnt bother me either. If you are so annoyed that you feel like you need to type something, just PM them. 

 

4. Enrichment is a rip off, end of. Waste of time bringing it in at that price. 

 

5. Instant upgrade is optional, if someone wants to waste money then its the button for them. You can gold the crew and buy free experience anyway so its just an expensive short cut

Its just a small glimpse of what's to come in the future.
Wg is a company and of course they will try to moneytize their product as much as they can.
3.8 is not a moneytization upgrade. Its finding ways to waste their players time for something they already had.

If calling for help, follow me, I know how to die!!

Has anyone managed to earn any spare parts in random battles like we're supposed to have a 50% chance of doing? I haven't. And I haven't managed to win any spare parts through missions cos I can't complete any missions due to having tanks that no longer behave like they did and not having enough spare parts to equip them, plus the usual problem of having team mates who have no idea what they or their tanks are meant to do e.g. Meds spot and flank. Instead Meds now hide and retreat. And because my view range has been nerfed through losing my binos that I can't replace I can't see f@&£ all. So I die!

 

So all in all I've now concluded that there's is absolutely f@&£ all point in ever buying a new tank again because the amount of spare parts needed to equip even a tier 4 level 3 piece of equipment (approx 18000 spare parts) is so unobtainable I can't be arsed. 

 

So well done WG you bunch of retarded cretins, as far as I can see you've just butt f@£&ed your own business model. What's the point of doing these stupid grinds to get a tier 8 premium tank when you'll never be able to equip it so it'll constantly get spanked by tanks that people already had and used their free spare parts to equip.

As soon as they realized that they will lose $$$... the game will revert back or they'll remove timers/spare parts or whatever to make it more viably profitable.

 

Pity that is what it will take... and not listening to their player base.

I played a few today. A Tier 8 mission earns about 1000 spare parts. A tier two module costs about 16000 spare parts. 

 

I thought the timers were the worst problem but no, the game is broken - there is no way anyone can earn enough sp to fully load out a decent garage.

 

all those great  tanks I was grinding towards - t62, obj140, tortoise, Death Star, grille, e100, is7 - no chance, and with the new system why would anyone ever look at things that are even slightly odd or potentially difficult?

 

Bye bye all those fun "elitist" tanks....

 

i think this game is done

Well you'd need to drive your hypothetical tank to Cyprus (handily placed RAF bases on the island). Odd for a Belarusian company one might think. Indeed they're probably the -only- company in Belarus with any global reach at all. Why Cyprus? It's a tax haven and so they're contributing absolutely bog all to Belarusia's already fairly weak economy, like the rotten parasites they are.
