Once again, Wargaming has prioritized new content over fixing bugs. I love the new TD line, but not more than I would have loved the bug fixes you keep promising and not delivering. The overlay and aiming bug still exists on Winter Malinovka, people are still fail platooning, and there a multitude of bugs that the moderators said were being worked that still exist. The family sharing plan bug has existed since iOS 8 came out in September. 

 

Folks, we're not getting bug fixes without a public outroar. That's the only way they do things there. It was our outcry that brought the promise of ending fail platoons. Once we accepted that and stopped clamor ing for it, they moved it down on the priorities.

Or, y'know, they are fixing these issues, but just haven't applied them yet. The Malinkova fix is going to be in 1.8 for example, so it's possible for the failtoon fix to be in at that point, as well. If it's not in at that point, then I'd start making more noise about it, but 1.8 is when all of that is supposedly being fixed.

The fail toon fix should have taken a day...

 

In fact it's entirely server side, so they don't even have to update the client to fix it.  There is no valid external excuse as to why it isn't fixed.

Agree.

 

Failtoon could have been fixed ages ago. Restrict it to one tier difference on the server, just disable the battle button until a proper vehicle match is made.

The thing is, everybody thinks that WG cares about what the players think but in reality, they dont give two squirts of piss about what any or all players think! They know people are gonna continue to throw money at them, and if they leave, who cares because three more rejects will take their place. These fools wont fix all the stupid problems/bugs with the game like they say they will do, but they will introduce new lines of complete garbage, absolutely ruin tanks with their [edited]Russian biased nerfs, its getting extremely pathetic!

Thats the thing, the bugs and issues have been looming around for several months already, at least a couple/few updates have past, and still they exist! But they have released new lines, ruined others, added a couple new maps, and added a couple premium tanks. But continue to ignore the problems and bugs that should have, and needed to be addressed for way to long! Wargamming just needs to get off their greedy, money hungry asses and fix the damn problems already!

 

And the most irritating thing about this isnt even wargamming's choice to just ignore these problems, its all the these players that know these problems exist, but yet anytime a thread about it pops up, they immediately come to wargamming's defense!

From what I've seen and heard 1.8 will primarily be a fix on the tech side. It should fix these issues. I use the Malinovka bug to my advantage. It's seems a lot of tanks on the other side are reluctant to fire because they think they don't have me in their sights.

How can you be sure it's a server side thing only? It's possible the platoon interface and checks are entirely client side, meaning you'd have to update the client to change it. Much like how they can change the Hellcat's RoF server side, but the actual number it displays for rounds per minute won't change (apparently) until 1.8.

instead of complaining y'all, why don't you ever thank WG for such a great game and so many regular updates?

I'm back! 

You still remember me right? 

No?

You are right, Thank you Wargamming for taking mine, and many others money for premium time, premium tanks, garage slots, etc.... and completely ignoring the bugs/issues that the game has had for such a long time! THANK YOU!!!!  ..|..

I do ank them, especially when I make a valid criticism. I also thank them with purchasing oremium time, and premium tanks. I thank them in each private message to the mods about problems, and in nearly every support ticket I submit. But each time I get the canned answer that they're working on it, but little progress gets done unless they have to respond to the angry mob. So my tone now matches their actions for appropriateness. When they start keeping their word, I'll be glad to tone it back.

I agree. Overlord stated that the fix was easy but "educating" players about why it was a bad thing was the hard part. I'm of the opinion that most who do it know why its a bad thing, and thats WHY they do it.

They're keeping their word.  They said the Malinovka bug would be fixed in 1.8...1.8 hasn't been released yet.  They said Failtooning would be addressed, but never placed any timeline around that.  Every patch they release fixes some bugs.  It's not possible to fix them all, and sometimes even fixing one will introduce another.

 

It's time to dial it back a bit, bud.

I dont agree with "dialing it back" big shock right? But seriously, its the crazy amount of time that has gone by and still these problems exist, like 2 or 3  updates and patches, etc...

Its frustrating to say the least, and everytime someone brings it up, you get players coming to WG's defense. Heck its been a week since 1.7, and still no fix for the the pile of steaming hellkitten. With their rapid response to fixing problems, it might be 1.9 or after before they even fix it.
