Always looking for improvements in graphics and performance.

 

The good:

  • 3.2.2 had real major delays when moving from the garage to chat.  That has been fixed.
  • The game is faster in navigation, and in-game performance is good, with Foliage at medium (at high FPS drops are noticeable) and Effects Quality at medium (at high, exploding tanks freeze the screen for a moment).  Too bad about the game effects - at high you get sparks when you make contact with another tank, which is cool.
  • Equipment replacement is intuitive and works well
  • Slight battle UI refinements
  • T95 doesn't feel much different: it's still slow!  Traverse nerf isn't noticeable - and hey, I have 140 more horsepower.

 

The bad

  • Chat STILL defaults to clan chat when in platoon.  REALLY?  Whatever, at least I'm habituated.
  • Slight stuttering every 3 seconds or so - like the game is missing a beat.  Doesn't affect gameplay much but it is noticable

 

Jury's still out...

  • New Mines map looks great but we'll have to play a ton of games before we can really comment on it.

You forgot about the Valiant Effort!

WARNING: The player "KempBushThe3rd" is no longer active. This is the last message he has left us:

 

"I've supported this game for too long. There are too many frustrations with playing this game. And I believe that it's not worth playing anymore. This is not because of Update 3.8. I have been losing interest in this game for a while now. I believe that it is time for me to put the game down and finally move on with life. A big thanks to the forums for helping me on the road to 60%, and sometimes giving me a good laugh. o7."

Camouflage. What happened to the concealment bonuses? After reviewing my garage, +3% remains the same for lights and mediums, while heavies were nerfed to +2%, and TDs were buffed to +4%.

 

And the Triumph camo from the Blitz tourney was nerfed from +4% (now only +2% on my IS3)!

 

Not stoked. Not stoked at all.

Every time a tank is destroyed my game lags for about 1.5 seconds.  Drawing, image rendering, whatever you call it appears to be off.  I can be deep behind a corner of a building and have a tank 90 degrees to me and scouted around the corner and get shot by it.  Apparently it can see me, it shot me (several have been kill shots so I know exactly which tank no mistake or unspotted enemy), but from my view point I should be deep behind solid cover.

 

not happy with this update.  It's laggy, buggy, and has made the game very unenjoyable.  It's already bad enough with all the massive speed introduced with Dracula tanks on such small maps. This update just about kills it.  I've spent some money on premium time and a few premium tanks but if game play doesn't get more reliable I don't see any reason to spend money on game I won't play anymore

Got to give these guys credit, with every update, they find ever more inventive ways to make it play worse than before.

 

The stuttering fame rate, the swings up and down ping, and the ever popular fire button delay is a WOTB gift that just keeps on giving, and giving, and giving.

 

Running my graphics on the lowest ends, doubled my internet speeds up and down, and once again it sux the life right out of any hope of joy playing it. Yeah yeah yeah all the noise too about disappearing tanks just a matter of not understanding spotting, rings even more hollow and louder, as I watch tanks wink in and out in short distances, and combine that with the rest of the issues, means you wake up dead while your fire button "thinks" about letting off a shot. 

 

3 days of FREE Premium play or no, I have reached my limit of interest in this kludge, major no fun any more, and further away from anything historical or remotely like anything close to "real tankery", just watch the Lights doing things no real tanks in their class could ever do. 

 

Makes the thought of just going back to building models of real tanks a merrier and more rewarding undertaking.

I like the noticeable improvements chat speed (despite the continued default to clan chat), game crash reduction, and noticeable ping reduction...the operative word being "reduction", not elimination.

 

The gun delay is still totally apparent; painfully so in those nose-to-nose duels for the last shot. Shots I know should fire when two tanks swap death blows. It is almost as if the server is making a last millisecond calculation as to who "earned" the shot by tapping first. At ~200m, I can promise you there

are moments in a duel where shots would be "exchanged" rather than only one shot  "chosen" to get fired. 

 

As for the new Mines: after 20+ rounds in the map, I like the fact the hill isn't so critical to hold for a team's win strategy. Thumbs up.

The explosion effects are an FPS killer. I have Game Effects set to medium as a result. 

 

No lag issues and the stutter issue seems to have dissipated.

If we should have to contend with poor FPS performance for the benefit of the cool explosion effects, WG should introduce turrets getting blown off when a tank gets ammo racked. That would be something.

My issue is when I first started I was building up credits quick. Then the other day I lost 30,000 in 3 games and now can't get over 5,000. At this rate I will never have enough to buy a better tank.

As you get to higher tiers it gets more difficult to earn credits. You will need to play better and win more to make credits. One easy fix is to purchase premium time - you don't need to, but it helps the credit situation. It is also a good idea to have a good credit earning premium tank that you can run - they earn more credits - run that when you need credits in game.

You need to trouble shoot your connection. I do not have any of the problems you describe. Run a trace route and post it here and we can help figure out the problem.
