Normandy - In the Heat of Battle

 

 

Early in the morning of June 6, 1944, Allied forces landed on the coast of France. This day and its events will live on forever in the memory of so many. It was one of the largest amphibious operations in history: more than 3 million people were involved in Operation Overlord. 

 

When creating the map, we tried to convey not only the distinctive features of the region, but also the atmosphere of D-Day: the hail of shells, the roar of the flame and the thunder of thousands of airplanes.

New map looks good. However, are there any other real updates fixing things like the matchmaking or getting rid of abusing the ”military honor” or anything else? Looks a bit too concentrated on new camouflages instead of real content?

I would like to propose a new medal to be considered by devs. “Platoon Killer” :playing::medal: Twice in the last two days I have managed to kill both players in platoon from enemy team. Made me think there should be a medal for this? What do think guys?

Here’s another suggestion. When I activate premium time with a certificate the first thing I do is disconnect and reconnect to get rid of all the “receipts” and “premium time expires in...” notifications. Why do there have to be so many? Plus, I can see how much premium time is left because there’s a timer in my garage. Every time I log in there’s a news notification. I don’t need all these “notifications”, they’re annoying and fill up my notifications feed. I prefer to be able to see all my losses and occasional wins!

 

So please, just one receipt when premium time activated and stop the repetitive notifications of how much premium time is left.

Absolutely. And the random red dots that sometimes show up when you get stuff in a crate or from a mission.

Lets see; patriot *** camo for A45 as well as two very nice legendary camos for Type 59 and T-44. I still have my hopes high for the introduction of itasha camos in near future; stuff like STA-1 Rin but with even more coloring and anime all over.

 

@Ribblestripe Is Wargaming planning to rebalance medium tanks at tier 10? Currently they are very underwhelming in the face of heavy tanks and tank destroyers.

I doubt we'll rebalance tier 10 mediums but pinpoint adjustments are possible.

What’s the point of these avatar things that will arrive 5.6 ? 

This is supposed to be a tank battle game not some Christmas decorations collection!

They don’t serve any purpose and just take up space in containers.

 

I’m sure I’m not alone in wondering how much more dumbing down is intended.

As a suggestion, why not make every battle a rating one. That would help with matchmaking surely?

Well, I can think of plenty of players who should get the snowflake avatar automatically.

Christmas is coming and we want to set holiday mood in the game. This is why first avatars pack is dedicated to New Year and Christmas. 

Further packs will be more game-oriented.

It means removing the main game mode.

100 credits as compensation for 1 Twister support point seems really ridiculously low, I would have expected something around 5000 credits.

Weren't they for watching a live stream? Or even doing something else whilst the live stream ran on the tablet... Money for nothing, if so.

I must admit that I don’t find 5he meds need rebalancing at t10, the whole point of meds is thatbthey are mobile and act as flankers rather then head in to heavies and tds... like in the old op t62a/140 days.

Guys, c'mon be serious. What is that yellow thing in my tank line? A new trick to buy something I don't want to? Or are you gonna put it in an event as a reward so it's just pending there? 

And why can't I remove it?

You also earned them by winning rating battles. 50 coins (in gold league) for a win, 1500 coins for a container with 10 support points. So maybe 50-60 battles for 10 points and now 1000 credits. I had much preferred to get no compensation at all instead of 1000 credits for 50 battles.

New version 5.6 just crashes on iOS right after start (did not get even to the login screen). When are you going to release a fixed version?
