Insider's view of MMO game development
Why there was a Maus-turrent mounted on the E-100?
Nice, but when?
In a weeks time, dont hold ya hopes up tho, they aint worth the wait :=)
So i guess thats the test 3 wich is final?No wonder they pit the german tanks against other german tanks at the end of the trailer, if they had chosen anything else the new tanks would be wreckage before they had got the shots finished :P
Aye, Test 3 speccs..
I waited for the E-series for soo long. Now I don't have any mood to start the launcher at all.And that's soo embarassing how WG s!@$ß on our head. I simple answer wasn't given for that answer "why did you nerf E-series in patch 3?" Nobody wrote a single post anywhere about they are overpowered...I trusted in you guys...until now.
I gotta say, They do a good job with those videos! they make them EPIC! lol
May the name of the game change to WORT?
Q: Overlord, could you please answer me on following,a, Have you played the new E-series in patch 3?b, Do you like how the E-series are coming out?Thanks
Keep your E-Series i dont want them.Come on say us what they final stats for this tanks are even if they arent there yet.Cause you fucked them all up i dont want a Heavy T8 as Medium T9 with less armour... but same Mobility!Nvm had enough time wasted on this "Game".
Hey Overlord!Patch notes in the "in development" section were updated. My question is as follows:What comes next? 7.0 with French tanks?Mzabalazo EU
Balance aside, they really know how to make an impressive trailer! 8-)
Dont usually post here or on forum.Have spent the bigger part of my vacation to grind enought XP forthe 3 new E tanks. Can´t put in words how dissapointed I am. I feel sicerely ripped off and empty. Been looking forward to have an nice autumn with the new E-tanks and around x-mas get the stug E-100. Now I havent got the motivation to even start the gameclient. Why should I bother anymore? Dont wanna play other then german tanks. Can´t understand what wargamings agenda is but I won´t support it anymore. Have probably spent 300-400 euros wont spend any more beacause german vehicles never seems to be competetive in this game. Really sad, and boring ingame. Seems like only fools play german vehicles. I was one of these fools. I wont be fooled anymore.
To the poster just above who thinks he was a fool. Apparently, the devs think so, too:This is a re-re-post from an anonymous poster 6.6.3 thread, at 9:35 p.m.:"You guys should have read some translated stuff from Russian forums. Yes in mother Russia there are players singing the same songs. The head developer, I don't recall his name anymore... Said, you must be stupid playing anything others than Russian."No Russian bias? Their head developer admitted that the bias is massive.
Hello overlord do you know when german tds are coming?thanks
Thanks WG! I have spend more than 1000 € since release. I was waiting for e-series all the time. If that are the final specs (not only e-series, even maus) I dont buy gold anymore! If devs think they can do what they want with there customers, let them do. You wont get money of me anymore! Unbelievable how devs only making good tanks for ONE nation and decrease the others time by time. Good luck WG, keep on and the game will be over before this year ends!4PzBtl393
I feel for the guys at wargaming putting so much love into the game which is ruined by a few who are deciding about the balancing. Also a lot of russian players don't like the balancing either.
Would still love to know if and when we'll be able to buy the KV-200 on the NA/EU servers :(
iam sitting here and waiting 4 news that the patchnotes about 6.6 are a aprilfool in the mid of august ... when does the news come ... plz overlord ... told us that 6.6 is a liddle joke from WG ... pleaaaaaaase ...
All we heard in the beta was how the E series would fix the German trees woes. Wait and see they said, you'll be happy.Then the E series is out for testing, E-75 is very strong but the E-100 needs improving. Result? Nerf the E-75 to oblivion. The IS-4 is now better armoured, faster, more agile and has comparable firepower. Sounds balanced.The E-100 still lacks the gun to go toe to toe with the heavy hitting tanks that abound. And I drive the IS-4 and IS-7 so that shows how bad they've done this. If they don't seriously buff the E series then it'll be very bad. The E-75 50% of its front is a bloody weakspot to anything T6+.
very very very nice video thank you :-)
They will learn it on the hard way, when their customers will stopp buying gold. I already stopped it!PvP needs balancing, but WG is at the moment far far away from it. And for the future, they want to start a ESL-Season...lol!Will be a hot dance for WG at the Games Convention in Köln this year ;)At the latest there they have to show one´s card!
Fixws planned for 0.6.7:*fixed the butterflies movement during countdown*fixed some sky textures on malinovka map, now it's still blue*Koenig Tiger front armor decreased with 10%, top gun is now 8,8L71 for historical reasons*arty cap is now 8/team, as community have requested*modified some xml files, just for the fun of it*modules on german/usa vehicles are now 15% more expensive for balancing purposes*free xp convertion price increased with 50%Development of further patches stopped. The game is now perfect and working as intended.
Deleting postings wont change the facts! It is sad that the stereotypes posted seem to be true.
This What Were Waiting For, Not The Test Server Of course..Fixes planned for 0.6.7:*Koenig Tiger front armor decreased with 10%, top gun is now 8,8L71 for historical reasons - Should I hate bout this?
Development of further patches stopped. The game is now perfect and working as intended.Not until Stug E100 Released mate..
German TD are alreay seriously broken. Stug E100 gonna be the crown jewel in the fubar E-family.
I also think that the game is unbalanced. It is the balance still work to do.
Stug E 100 is going to get a 170mm derp gun which of course is what TDs are all about.
Object has 5% higher win ratio than JT, I guess they keep it with all Russian tanks like this. JT gets penned by tier 6 meds from the front, practically they don't need to bother to circle him. Again look at size of German lower glacies plate and Russian ones. Lol get it!
Other country tanks get small weak spots in the front, such as the v shape on the Object or whatever on the T 95.All German tanks have a HUGE weakspot in the front which anyone worth it salt as a tanker AIMS for. I do it when I shot other german tanks with my german tanks.I can't say the same about trying to hit the weakspots on Russians tanks which are smaller and ever harder to hit when angled right.So what do the devs do on the E 75. Make it slower and the weakspot more prominent by lowering the armor on the lower glacial. Once more adding a HUGE weakspot on a german tank.Because anyone being forced to move around the tank to hit the weak side and rear armor is just way to much to ask for.What do I do when I see a T 95 and Object? I try to go around. I don't ask for the devs to give me a HUGE weakspot to aim for in the front.Is that really why the german lost? Because they were dumb enough to add those weakspots in the front?I certainly didn't know that.
E-series lol, play Russian stop crying. Mooore cannon fodder pls. Maus only 500 HP more than my IS7 I don't need arty help anymore. I just facehug the Maus like in beta. Thx Devs.
Yup guys play Russian, we dominate all tiers. Only sour spot tier8 and 10. Tier 8 is taken by Americans maybe even tier7, so Germans had for a short moment tier 10. Do you guys really thought it stays like this? Are you idiots? E-series finally a joke, nothing to worry from. Lol E100 with KV derp gun. Now the Maus gets nerfed. Why I'm happy, I went for Russian after beta, even though I preferred German tanks by looks and history. It would have been a shame if the DEVs would have failed me.
Speaking only about the trailer - It looks very nice. I especially like the way you guys introduced the new tanks. The overlayed text looked VERY nice. Can you spend a bit more time going over the new map(s) in the future? With only one game mode, maps are one of the only ways that the players have a different experience in each battle.
Everybody knew since beta Russian tanks are way better, I hate you guys with all the crying for balance. Was there ever balance? Russians are brawlers, you get more XP for brawling. German tanks are huge, inaccurate Russian guns? Not below 300m. Russian tanks are great at stock, compared to other nations. A lot Russian tanks need less crew, are low as hell and have same vision and radio range. Russian repair bills are cheaper and the ammo. Russian tracks repair faster. With my Russian camo I'm seldom worried about a German sniper. I can go in any map without feeling, damn worst map for my tank. Yeah other nations might peak on paper over my tanks, who cares the battle counts. I have easy a 10% win ratio encrease since I played mainly Russian. Look at the benefits you get with having the Russian tree, when the changes to it will be implemented. Last not least look at the medals tank hunter and Maus trap, I just can't believe how ignorant you fail players are. You want to have fun join mother Russia.
We may need to accept that because of the size of the Russian market the devs may always attempt to keep those players happy. It is, of course, short sighted and the fastest way to stunt their growth as a company but it will likely prove successful in the short term.I had high hopes for the Tiger and was anxious to play it simply because I was facinated by it as a child. As with most people I've talked with it was very dissapointing. So too has my brief time with American mediums been dissapointing.The bottom line is that no company will please everyone all the time. The biggest problems come when the company forgets why they began and what they are about. You can focus on a good product and let the quality of what you offer shine through and attract more people, or you can cater to a specific group and end up with only them supporting you.WoT offers something that no other game currently has- and I enjoy it. Long-term problems (including player retention) will see a significant contraction in their world-wide market- boosed by World Of Planes (likely)- but they will make money. Their business model is sound: I have never seen a game take in such large amounts of cash by individual players.The bottom line for the devs is their bottom line. I am sure they care about this game and want to see it balanced and fun but at the end fo the day they have to chase the money and if that means leaving the National tank-choice of their biggest customer(s) over powered I am sure they will.Pity.
"I simple answer wasn't given for that answer "why did you nerf E-series in patch 3?" Nobody wrote a single post anywhere about they are overpowered...I trusted in you guys...until now."The answer to this is a very very simple one.1-Most of their players come from Russia.2-players in russia cried when test2 was out3- 1+2 = 3 .....they nerf german tanks in test3 and launch the patch w test3 data to cater to their bigger player base. Because the majority is always right right?
To all you guys claiming WG.net is catering to their Russian players:You are wrong. Get Chrome and take a look at the Russian forums using the inbuilt translator. If possible, the Russians are maybe even more unhappy with the E-series than the European players.
I think on one hand you are right a lot Russians hate the new E Series. But the majority doesn't care because they play Russian anyway. If the E series would be released too competitive they would start to scream.
world of rus tanks ?
Looking forward to world of warplanes:ME Schwalbe 262: reduced max speed to 250km/h for balancing issuesMiG-1: increased max speed to 999km/h for obscure historical reasonsPlanning to introduce Mikojan-Gurewitsch MiG-31 next patch because we found a child draw dated to 1939 showing evidence of planed prototyp( maybe as well show a dog but who cares)
NEWS FLASH OVERLORD IS NOT GOING TO ANSWER WHY THE E-SERIES GOT NERFED, HE, ALONG WITH EVERYONE ELSE AT WG ARE SETTING THERE LAUGHING AT US BECAUSE THEY DON'T CARE!THEY KNOW THEIR TANKS ARE OVER POWERED THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS! UNTILL WG GETS THE SAND OUT OF THEIR VAGINAS AND REALIZES WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO THEIR GAME, WE ARE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO SUCK IT UP AND ACCEPT IT. THERE IS A RUSSIAN BIAS AND THAT IS FINAL. IF WE WANT FAIRNESS THEN RUN RUSSIAN TANKS ONLY.
Notice how they're all battling other German tanks only really? That's because German tanks are balanced against other German tanks, and only German tanks. You guys are so sneaky and underhanded with your agendas I'm disgusted. You didn't balance the E-100 at all, and you went ahead with the heaviest nerfs you can throw at the E-75 and E-50 at the last moment, 2 days before patch launch. Then you nerf the Maus, and now the T30, while the IS-7 got a 50hp reduction only? Come on... Your own precious Russian players are calling you guys out, they're trying to rally US and EU players against you now because all they want is to be heard and balanced. How does that make you feel? Probably as good as when you look at your game's income after this patch, especially when Battlefield 3 comes out.Happy Trails wargaming.
If the developers whouldnt have given you that much of informatiion about what exactly they do to the new tanks, everybody would have been happy with it!I played E75 and I think its an awesome tank, cant complain at all!
If the developers whouldnt have given you that much of informatiion about what exactly they do to the new tanks, everybody would have been happy with it!I played E75 and I think its an awesome tank, cant complain at all!Yeah because you play russian tanks and play around with German tanks only on test server.
The Problem is: Wg got the most players in RU not in the EU and not in US so they just hear when ru players cry.
Well...Seems like Russian tanks, especially IS have a huge advantage. Which isn't historically correct. Beside Tiger I was the king of the tanks during WWII and in this game it's can take a few shots.
LOL I saw the clip again. Just remember that was made with patch 6.6.2, before the big nerf. What an insult, now the tanks have half the agility. LOL
Have been playing for 14 days and spend 60 Euroes on the German tank line. Unfortunately after reading this blog it's obvious WOT have a problem and I certainly don't want to waste more money if it's correct what some of the more experience westeuropean players are sharing with bias Russian developers are favoriting the Russian WWII tanks.
"Yeah because you play russian tanks and play around with German tanks only on test server."No, I only play german tanks!I got everything ready to geet my E75 as soon as the patch gets released!
What is your player name? I like to see if you tell the truth. I do not one player who plays mainly German tanks that not thinks the E series got nerfed to much. The only possibility I see you are lying o you are a paid Mod for WG.
wostok, north american server
Hi Wostok, I respect your opinion, you really play mainly German. You know you could increase your win ratio easily by playing Russian. 90% of our clan went Russian heavies, meds and arties. It's more competitive, also for future turneys. A lot free XP the Maus after bug fixes 6.4, that was unexpected. I care less about nationalities, by playing in beta all nations, it's easy to say the Russian tree is the strongest one. For too many little reasons that add up. But I'll wait and see how the E series will be launched. Ciao
thank you! I know I could increase my win ratio but I like playing the german line, its a nice challenge and after all Im german also ;)(no, Im not a Nazi and Im not even proud to be german)I got the KV and KV-3 for the free slots in the next patch.Lookin forward to seein you guys on the battlefield! Cant wait to get the E75!And devs, continue doing a good job and listen to the community! (well, not to everyone)wostok
Thanks Overlord, no more gold for me either. I totally lost respect for you, the shitty devs and the game.
The amount of crying on this blog amuses me! Lol
don't screamHe doesn' hear you, or most propably he don't want to...So don't complain about E-Series and just used to it that other nations can't be better that RU one
why did you nerf the T30? WHY THE FUCK DID YOU NERD THE FUCKING TANK WITH PAPER ARMOR AND A GUN THAT MISSES 50% OF THE TIME AND WHEN IT DOESN'T MISS IT DOES 0 DAMAGE CRIT? ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED , YOU MONGOLOID? IF YOU'RE NOT MOVING THE T30 TO THE TD LINE FOR A WHILE THEN WHY TURN IT INTO A TIER9? ARE YOU GOING TO BRING IN THE T110 AS A SURPRISE? AND AREN'T YOU SATISFIED WITH YOUR NATIONAL PRIDE BULLSHIT? WHY DON'T YOU GO JOIN THE VDV IF YOU LIKE YOUR FUCKING COUNTRY SO MUCH? BLOODY RETARDS GOTTA PISS OFF EVERYONE TO GET SOME FUCKING ATTENTION..
e-50 ok, like it is on the testserver now2-75 is ok 2, maybe a littel bit to slowbut the e-100 needes a buff like it is now... have all the free xp 2 get it after the patch, but i wont spent it for that tank like it is...gun suxx, armor is 2 week in the front, it is 2 slow and a arty magnet like the maus... a better lower front armor ,more pen 4 the gun, better turret front armor and 5 mor speed will do it
guys, I know, that this is about heart to play your favorite tanks (mostly germany). but it is russian game, so they buff russian tanks. ok, so let's play only russian tree. after that maybe developers buff other nations. if is still more germany drivers, they don't need buff it, all is ok.I looking forward, that germany E-series can compare with russian, but after nerf aren't.ok, so from germany side I stan on legendary tanks like panther and tiger, but mostly play russian side. more surviveability, better damage and penetration, maneuver, speed, cheaper repair and ammo. so WHY play another nations?
E-Series - Hello Losers!Source: Wargaming TV episode 6, 0:22can u please explain?
They nerf german tanks even before putting them into game (e-series) but keep for months a tier X IS-4 in tier IX.. LMAOThey are very fast to nerf Maus and T30 and still refuse to touch clealy overpowered russian russian tank line LMAOThis is WORT, not WOT.but...AS I DONT CARE BOUT NATIONALITIES AND JUST WOULD LIKE TO PLAY A BALANCED GAME, IMA NOT GOING TO GIVE DEVS MORE MONEY. THEY DONT LISTEND CUSTOMERS? THAY DONT GET MY MONEY. EASY.
Dear OverlordQ: Wargaming TV episode 6, min 0:22 bottom screen it says "E-Series - Hallo Versager".Which means HALLO LOOSERSNow this could mean "E-Series- everything else sucks", which i think was intended and also got the communities hopes up.OR "E-Series - New set of uselessness GL HF, lol"For obvious reasons, or rather after test 3 everyone thinks it means "E-Series = Looser", which, i will admnit is a thought i can follow.So which one is it, or are you yet to decide- or do we get to decide in that matter.
With full respect: just take the money is spent for this game till then, was my mistake. Al lof the other game developres wil lthank you too! ;) Cheap liars...
I would like to know if the exp. from elite Tiger will be given to KT or TigerP? I seen a post that has given me some confusion.
XP on an elite Tiger will be transfered to the Tiger II (King Tiger).
@ OverlordSo, how 'bout that foot in your mouth :)"Just you wait and see the E series... blah, blah... balance... blah..."I drive German mostly and will get hurt with this crappy update, but I had to lol :)
Q: When the Patch comes, do I have to rebuy my Elite VK 3001(P) to grind for the Tiger I(P) or is it allready researched?
Guys I think u r doing it wrong. What happened when the Jagdtiger cried about Ferdinand having mor armor? - Ferdi got nerfed.What happened when people sayed E-100 is a bad joke?- Maus got nerfed.PLEASE stop saying that E-75 is a bad tank. I do not want VK4502 Aus. B to get nerfed.Repeat after me:"E-75 is a absolutely great tank! It's German competitor doesn't stand a chance!"
Please make a new pole:"Do you like the new E-series AFTER the patch?"and one more:"Do you believe russian >>>> Germans and US?"
Overlord, when will the new USSR heavy tank line be introduced. In the patch 6.7 , i really hope so ..
Hi Overlord i have some question and proposition for you, players and for better game :>Ok i startFirst question:Getting experience on normal server is hard with premium too :/ 700 to 1000 if you win and do a LOT ! Can you change that experience will be 2x higher ? I think many players agree with me.Second question:Gold in Poland is really expensive :'/ If you can do for Poland private payment for our Zloty. 10 euro is 1/2 of new game in our country so is expensive. Can you do something with this ?Third question:When will be ending test ?Fourth question:Did you creating test players ? That who will be test your new tanks and etc.Fiveth question:T-54 is a little over power. E50 haven't chance with T-54. I think now is enough question :p Thanks for respond
UberFarter said... "why did you nerf the T30? WHY THE FUCK DID YOU NERD THE FUCKING TANK WITH PAPER ARMOR AND A GUN THAT MISSES 50% OF THE TIME...followed by more ranting"I always found the T30 to be the weakest tier 10 tank. Always from the position of having it as an enemy. So I too didn't see a reason to kick it again, while it's already down ^^
Video was quite nice. But there are few major problems that havent yet been fixed.
Don't bother asking for overlord to answer your questions. This is WORT and he is hiding his face because he knows how terrible the tanks are, and still nerfed them further into the ground so that the RU players are happy.Im don't spending gold. I waited months just to have my E-100 be a POS, and the Maus/T30 get nerfed away too.
What i can see happening here, is the Same as WoW. Private Servers. People will start to host free copy's of WoT where the tanks are balanced. And frankly, i would go play them just so i had a balanced tank.WG should stand up to the RU players, call them babys that they're tanks are not really that good and make the damn game fair.
This game will rock at LAN play. Release a LAN copy plz thanks
stop crying and vote with your wallets. they don't care what you have to say, never have and never will.
Was mad but now dont give a shit...Im playn BF3 in a couple months. Im actually glad I dont have to pay for mine or my kids account anymore. E75 was my deciding factor! WOT's can bite me and I hope they lose all EU/US players. I will never play or even try any wargamers sponsored games again. frigen commie bastards!
oh and now I definately agree with Patton's feelings on the Rusky's
I AM speaking to all the people here who are so polite to speak yo u rudey overlord.U are a pussy-man who works in fucked up money sucking company...BITCH....Now delete this comment so i know u ead it XDtrying to act so good by openig up a blog..lol SHUT IT OF NOW !! OR BALANCE UR FUCKED UP GAME!
Balance ur fucked up Game,BITCH!OR CLOSE THIS BLOG AND DONT ACT SO COOL!OR U KNOW WHAT i got a better punishment for u!go play with a tiger 1 XDand its not WOT its WORT
Why don't we hear any exact date about the 0.6.6 release? The absence of a it doesn't feel seriously WoT...
The russian WOT its patched in august.4 why we steal waiting?Why do not take seriously the europen players?WTF???????????????????????????????????????????
Funny, a jerk like you needs his own side to spread this bullshit. Well, you did it again. Fooling the Western Europeans, especially the Germans Americans.Well, hope your game runs good at the Russian market, because sooner or later it will be your only market, you fucking retard.
