How long does it actually take to "collect data" related to Update 3.8? I mean it has been long enough to figure out that spare parts have broken the game. The creative director (or something like that), Igor Iliketoscrewuprov, is gone. Everyone in the player base hates the spare parts system. Spare parts have made it to where most people can't even play one-fifth of the tanks they own and forget grinding new or buying premium tanks. Even Bushka hates the spare parts system/idea (see his latest video at about 13:50 minute mark, https://youtu.be/F_XjYJRx9ok).

 

So, Wargaming get off of your fat butts and fix this. You can either:

 

1) Get rid of spare parts all together and use credits like in the pre-3.8 versions of Blitz

2) Fix the spare parts economy so that they can actually be obtained at a reasonable rate and method.

   a) One idea is to allow premium tanks to grind credits and spare parts

   b) Under this option, I don't think premium tanks should require spare parts for equipment at tiers 2 and 3.

 

Oh, and get rid of the [edited]timers!

Because the Creative Director is out doesn't mean the focus will change, those decisions come from far up in the chain of command, we might hate the spare parts but that doesn't mean they will change it, and im sure everyone is playing all the tanks anyway (having all equipments or not) and Bushka doesn't mean anything to WG.

Bushka may not "mean" anything to WG, but he has a big voice in the community. So many people watch his videos that that is now Buska's full-time job. He has the power to energize the community and him speaking out/up about it can create similar ripples as was caused by SirFoch and Jingles about the whole Chrysler K debacle.

 

If we the community get complacent, then we can only blame ourselves if things don't change.

^^^^^^^^this 

 

Also, not sure if it's related to not having all the right equipment but lately I've noticed ALOT of bouncing shots, mainly since last update.   I know there's been nerfs etc but it's ridiculous. And still Ghost shots..and disappearing tanks when they are in the WIDE OPEN SPACE?.  Really frustrating..


So tired of people tired of negative comments...they're just brainwashed idiots, going with the flow instead of speaking up...punks "

Refunds are possible. But given most are to lazy to follow thru and in turn just whine. You settle for taking what Wg tells you.

I think the reason they haven't changed it is that they made a long term plan, and they have had two events now where the reward payout is largely in parts.  Changing it all of a sudden would make those rewards seem smaller than they should, and they will most likely find a gradual increase in parts earning which will coincide with a bigger payout for missions, standard battles, AND for event missions.  Basically yes it will be solved in time but not because of data collection as much as they don't want to be all twisty with what they're giving out.

I'd be happy if this simply made it so you recoup 50%-75% of your spare parts when you sell a tank. The fact that you don't get any in return when selling is asinine

Yes I don't know what they expect us to do for grinding new lines.

WG probably have no choice but to increase the compensation of SP per battle. 

 

As for other ideas, I am not against them, but they are difficult to implement because,

 

1) It means another massive overhaul of the entire system. And it would also mean WG acknowledging the failure that is 3.8.

 

2) It will tilt the balance in favor for premium tanks and reinforce the idea that this game is pay-to-win. 

 

WG really shot themselves in the foot. As it stands, purchasing a new premium vehicle does not make sense, but to fix the problem, they have to reverse-engineer the entire system.

I think you should be able to sell equipment on a tank for a full refund of spare parts. That is more in line with the previous system.
