I got a pop up survey in game yesterday.  The questions were about the 6.8 release - that new map - and quite a few about Missiles.   Like most of the surveys WG puts out - there are some where the available answers are too limited.   

 

I wonder if I got the survey because I've drastically cut back my game play since missiles.

 

 

Peace-

Boris


I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.

Users have been reporting the survey on discord for a couple days, including many high playrate ones. So that's a no Boris.

my bad, ignore my troll. I do doubt they’ll listen. They have a bad track record for listening. C6 has suggested there is improvement. I ain’t seeing it.


:amazed:6.7/6.8/6.9/6.10/7.0 now we have LAME tanks w broken mechanic “Balancing” Missile tanks is a joke.
WATCH THE SPRING MISSILE TOURNAMENTS; SUPERHEAVIES & TRICK SHOTS. Top down non los magic “situational” missiles on a LAME platform is STILL poorly thought out. Urrrrgggg

My concern is how the player base will respond to the survey.   I think that the average player doesnt really understand how these guided missiles have changes the dynamics of the game.   They will respond favorably to the missiles becuse they think they are cool - disregarding the impact they have on the meta.

 

So WG will be able to say -- "Nu tak, we gived you survey. Kogda Ivan compile results seeing most players vote missiles very comfortable.   Missiles stay navesegda! "

 And if so, could you give us a brief summary?

Not complete but:

 

All T10 heavies will get an HP buff to help balance atgm’s and help them fulfill the heavy role. Missile use is down from 25% to 20% and is being watched. There are no changes to the mechanics but that could happen in the future. 
 

There was also discussion of new Japanese TD’s with nice camo, the new event, how testers are selected, & the current ratings challenges. Two new tutorials have been added and more will follow. UI changes the equipment screen and boosters will be buyable only as offers or bundles. Mad games and uprising will return but they didn’t say when. Ribble platoons and Alexandra is an average player.
 

For me it was a better stream than others. A couple of my gripes were discussed and at least partially addressed.

B5 -

 

They dont play the same game we play.  When we play Blitz - we have to grind for new tanks - or purchase with gold.  Then we have to equip them, level up the crew skills etc.   Emps of WG most certainly have comp accounts - so their experience of game play will not be the same as ours.   

 

Oh -- and they really don't want to admit that Missiles were a mistake  -  they died on the hill that was update 3.8  - and they will die on this hill of Missiles as well.

 

 

Peace-

Boris

Wait, so the T30 will or will not receive a HP buff even though it is, for all intents and purposes, a heavy?
Remember what the general said. We're the cavalry. It would be bad form to arrive early; in the nick of time would do nicely.

HP buff is for Tier 10 heavys -- not Tier 9 TDs

Just realized that and was about to change it to the E4 (I meant the tier 10 american TD and the T30 used to be tier 10 so I think thats where I got confused).

Them just buffing the T10 tanks must mean that they think T9 preforms just fine against them (although I would argue the T9 tanks need buffs more than the T10 because T9 is very rarely top tier and thus it would not matter that much for T8 and the T9 tanks still fight the tier X tank and they showed that they needed to buff tanks better then the tier 9 tanks because the at the very least the tier 10 tank is broken).

OH .. I'm p. sure that a HP buff to tier 9 will come soon -- they have to do something about these missile tanks.
