I just double checked, no mention of this major nerf in the full patch notes. 

 

  • Description and value of the Camouflage Net bonus changed.

Kind of buried. http://wotblitz.com/...ate-25-summary/

 

Last item under Fixes and "improvements". Very quietly buried, to avoid fanning the flames.

I'll say it over and over: Not all of us want to race medium tanks into a central area and bruise it out with 13 other medium tanks. I'm totally okay with there being a few cage-match maps and more than a few cage-match tank lines. But some of us LIKE stealth, long sight lines, sniping, and finesse. We are not bad people for liking those things. And we are not bad people for lamenting their diminishment.

 

I would plus 100 if I could. Game is moving toward homegenity. Severe nerf to the options for td drivers.

I am really peeved for my jgpz iv and e25 and similar vehicles.  

 

How the heck am I supposed to survive in them and fix my wr? They don't have the frontal armor nor dmg per shot to run up front or second line like a medium. 

 

Oh and I'm far from a camper ... but in some tanks like cardboard box tds you have to hold back some and depend on camo to get a better chance at winning.

So, maps are small, camo net got nerfed, the camo skin bonus is tiny.

Is the camo net worth using at all, when that slot could be better utilized by Vents, GLD, VStabs, anything else.

I don't get this at all. They deliberately alter maps to make long-range engagement impossible, for what? Just to appease all the idiots who don't understand battlefield roles?

not true at all.  Camping is being forced out of the game and for that THANK YOU WG!!!!!  

 

 

Do you not understand the difference between camping and sniping?

they should probably bring back 5% of that 10-20% nerf, it feels like td sniping is now even harder

 

edit: actually, they might have redistributed the camo values:

 

the crew skill Camouflage might have been buffed by +1% per level

 

Yup looks like our camo skill got a buff. But I can't conferm.

On my Dicker Max, yes the Camo net is worth it! You want to stay hidden because a spotted Dicker Max is a dead Dicker Max!

Luckily I just finished my last TD grind for a quite a while.  Don't think I would bother with TDs anymore.  Its hard enough for the frontline to melt away every other game, not to mention an marked increase in brawling maps.  TDs, especially the ones that are reliant on speed and stealth is pretty much obsolete.

 

I would run the 122-44 every so often, but its a brawling TD at heart.

But now that your Camo net gives you only a 15% boost to your camouflage rating, instead of a 25% boost, is that still worth it over GLD or vents or whatever?

Im not a happy camper. Although I was never a camper, I do know how to snipe effectively. It was hard enough as it was, the camo net was barely useful in keeping you hidden once you fired, not sure it will be useful now. 

 

As for those who feel that it is a good thing because it will stop people from camping, it won't. Noobs will be noobs, if it was a bad strategy to begin with, a camo net won't help. They're just dumb. But for the skilled and effective snipers who want TD's to be valuable and effective, the camo net nerf really does hurt. I was hoping they would buff TD's...

Another semi-stealth nerf by WG... it actually was in the notes: They just chose to not mention what it was

The plan seems to be set up to force players to buy more premium time and premium tanks to fund your consumables and higher tier matches.  Or force you to join clans to accumulate some discounts, regardless of the fact there is no other purpose for joining a clan since we have no competitive modes allowing us to fight each other. 

 

WG.. here is how you can get people to spend more money.. give us more modes of play and training rooms now rather than later.  The fluff you keep handing is just not doing it for the hardcore players that support the game through premium time/tanks.  I keep buying it but I'm starting to really question why I have dumped all this money into your pockets..

Right, it should have stated, starting with the subject ...

 

" Camouflage net value changed for all tanks. From 25% to 15% TD, to 10% for, ... "

It's fairly obvious what they've done to TD's.  The last few map changes, and the last few new maps, have all been unfriendly to "sniping" TD's.  I didn't say campers, I said snipers, which potatoes seem to not understand.  Why would the nets change be any different???  Don't get me wrong, I love driving mediums and I absolutely hate that sniping TD that gets me from out of nowhere, but I do appreciate the skill they have IF they've set up in a good location and are doing it "right".

The camo net change seems a bummer to me too, even though it will probably benefit me personally (less death from nowhere).
