    ReplyDelete
  3. I really hope to see tank turrets flying through the air!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Fix matchmaking pls

    ReplyDelete
  5. NO FRENCH TANKS! Why delayed?

    ReplyDelete
  6. More customization of your tank is great. I hope on the long run we will be able to change more aspects of our tanks such as skirts.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Fuck the french tanks... As long it has camos and horns its good...

    But when is it released on test servers? APRX?

    ReplyDelete
  8. so there will be no other update between now and the 7.0? (meaning no October updates at all)

    ReplyDelete
  9. fix invisible tanks please!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Q: But when is it released on test servers? APRX?

    A: Some time in mid October

    ReplyDelete
  11. Overlord,

    1. Adaptive Camo. What's it going to cost: Gold or Credits?
    2. Horn Sounds. What's it going to cost: Gold or Credits?

    Thanks.

  12. Another hold off on french tanks who the hell cares about camos and horns

    I think you will find this is to do with the fact that they are having problems working out how to get the 6th reverse gear in place and also the pole with the white flag wont stay down xD

  14. PUT THE GOD DAMN M103 IN FOR FUCKS SAKE!IT IS DONE AND THERE IS NO REASON TO MAKE YOUR CUTOMERS HATE YOU MORE.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Overlord,

    Why are you insisting on holding back on the M103? Please tell us why you are not releasing it if it is done.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Like this needs to be said, but you really need to either put the M103 in, OR buff the T34. Every single performance stat I have seen for the T34 shows it to be behind all the other tier 9 vehicles. So many other tanks are receiving buffs, why not the T34? That being said, the M103 would be much more welcome :-)

    ReplyDelete
  17. horn sounds ... YES Tütü tütü ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. I bet the only reason they have not released the M103 is because they know it is still not going to be a comparible tier 9 tank. They can not understand the concept of fairness and they never will, it is sad, I had high hopes for this company...

    ReplyDelete
  19. Any chance the M103 will be included in this patch? It would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks for all the hard work!

  20. Q: Any chance the M103 will be included in this patch? It would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks for all the hard work!

    A: no. Go look at this post. http://overlord-wot.blogspot.com/2011/09/2012-mystery-revealed.html

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like this, but please put some more focus into fixing the overall interface.

    And also, while you are fixing the company's, make a proper company browser, also platoon browser.

    This would be verry helpful =)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Please tell me you'll provide a check box in the audio settings so we can turn off the custom horns. I'm not exaggerating even a little bit when I tell you being forced to listen to horn-honking inanity will ruin the game for me and make me stop playing.

    I understand many people want it; that's fine. Just please give me the option to turn it off and leave all other sounds on.

    Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Agreed on some improvement to match-making. I think having a limit on the number of artillery units should be considered with 2-3 per side being the max.

    Armour skirts as an add-on for tanks like the PzKpfw III and PzKpfw IV would help them out as well as add to the historical accuracy for these vehicles.

    ReplyDelete
  24. 8. Crew skill reset option
    As in you can reset what secondary skills that have and get the XP back to spend on new skills?
    How much gold is this going to cost?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Na Overlord is going to sit back and be immature about it. He knows we want to know about the M103 but he is not going tell us a damn thing.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Pls say that you can turn the Horn´s off...
    mega flame item D:

    ReplyDelete
  27. I can see it already... a heavy tank rams you in the beginning of the match in your light tank and blows you away with his horn :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Overlord,

    I asked before, and would like to ask again:

    For the additions to the Tech Trees, will there be further announcements like: "If you have X tank in your garage, it will be move to Y place, and Z tank will be added to your garage"? (Just like the announcements for Russian and USA Heavies.) That way, we can begin to grind for the particular tank.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  29. well.....any idea on if the t5 lights are going to get lowered rep costs? other then that is this pretty much 6.8 or is there going to be a smaller patch before then?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Overlord,

    Please say something about the M103!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh...as someone else said, have the option to disable horn sounds. I can see it becoming incredibly annoying. Alternatively, anyone who honks their horn has their position revealed to the enemy team (no LOS required) for the next 60 seconds...let arty take care of them!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Horn Sounds? You people are seriously delaying the french tanks and the American Heavy line and instead putting shit in like horn sounds? Really? No seriously... Really?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Will there be some patches in between 6.7 and 7.0??

    ReplyDelete
  34. Overlord, Since it is fog of war in clan wars, so all tanks will be revealed even though you did not sighted them or you need to be near so they can be sighted?

    ReplyDelete
  35. "Tanks:
    To be specified (no French tanks!)"

    May you specify when you guys will know which tanks are to be specified? :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Overlord, tracers, so arty can counter enemy arty again....will they be back for 7.0?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Q:"NO FRENCH TANKS! Why delayed? "
    A: French tankers still on strike.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Q: So 7.0 is the next patch?

    A: Yes.

    Q: Will there be some patches in between 6.7 and 7.0??

    A: No.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Q: Overlord, tracers, so arty can counter enemy arty again....will they be back for 7.0?

    A: Unlikely, tho they are in the works.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Overlord!

    What's with cammo and horns? Would it be just cosmetics(cammo ) and annoying (horns)or additiona cammo will give cammo buffs for vehicle? would it be gold or credit buyable and transferable between tanks?

    And can you give some info on crew skill reset?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Q: Any chance the M103 will be included in this patch? It would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks for all the hard work!

    A: No, it won't make it. Not enough time to test the conversion mechanics, it's rather difficult and resource-consuming.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What about lowering graphic requirements so that the game is playable not only on the newest gaming computers.
    The graphic and FPS suck even at Low.

    And fixing bugs like turret aiming near houses and critical hits with 0% damage.

    People want that bugs get fixed before adding new tanks, unbalanced maps and gimmicks.

    ReplyDelete
  43. If i remember we will be able to buy camos for silver or for gold. Silver camos will be only for number of battles and gold will be forever and for every map thats right?

    How much gold for camo for every map for single tank?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Overlord, Clan Logo means we have our clan logo on our tanks?

    ReplyDelete
  45. Overload if we get the T34 as a stock setup will we get the 120mm gun on the tank as default or we need to unlock that in order to have it on the premium version?

    So, will the T34 receive some sort of buff, then? It really is having a hard time competing at tier 9 (ESPECIALLY without the 120mm). The other tier 9 heavies do not have this sort of problem.

    ReplyDelete
  49. (no French tanks!)

  50. It is this bug or its normal? In several games ally arty hit me a damage and i did not receive any compensation

  51. Fjords... who would put tanks in FJords... you know they are filled with water... :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I am looking forward to have some decent camo paints, as I am fed off with putting custom skins that are visible only to me and pretty useless.

    For me Tank costumization >>> French runaway-vehicles :D

  53. Dear OVERLORD,
    you said RU and German 2nd TD will come in Q4 2011

    so if you have 7.0 in Nov, 7.1 in December only for French bread Tanks

    are you sure any time for you guys to publish the TDs ?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Will there be any changes related to exp needed for secondary skills (I think those numbers are quite high at tis moment)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Why French tanks at all? Why not add the UK as a new tech tree. There are a lot of nice Brittish tanks, planes and ships. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Strange change, last update was poor only 3 LT with 50KXP to do for it lol with a LT as T3, and 1 chinese prem, now u said 7.0 november so no update during 2 months :(

    U said there ll be 1 update / month

    think lot of us are boring and have tanks they wanted

    btw i wait for french tree in december lol if it Q4 and 7.1

    ReplyDelete
  57. Q: The Swamp map... How will that go if it is a swamp?

    Maus goes in 5km/h and T95 1km/h ?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Is there possible to get a hint on how the freeze will work. Like if it will be triggered in landingzone, times and etc?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Are advanced physics still planed for 7.0 ?

    ReplyDelete
  60. @Overlord


    Hi, could you specify more information about new tanks and the new fog of war visibility system? Why it wont be inplemented on normal fight and how does it works?

    ReplyDelete
  61. when we look at tanks in the store, could we see them in the garage before we buy? like the tanks we have in the garage. PLS

    ReplyDelete
  62. 1. Any timeline for when the M3 Lee will get its second gun operational?

    2. Any hints on how the gui/gameplay is expected to work for tanks with 2 guns?

    3. Any change so that when you are next to a building, your view won't jump 180 degrees when you switch out of sniper mode? Thats extremely frustrating.

    ReplyDelete
  63. what about fixing the drastic FPS drop in sniper mode

    Q: will all the bugs be ever fixed ?

    because the bugs are there since releasing the game but all updates only have new tanks, maps and occasional gimmicks
    and I have the feeling that with each update the MM is more and more crap -oh well I forgot, it's working as intended, like Pz4 vs IS3 - I know, the policy is make the game as unplayable as possible to force people spend money

    ReplyDelete
  64. 300 people working on World of tanks. And you add horns?

    Come ooooooooooooooooooon.....

    Either bigworld is the worst engine EVER! or something is way way wrong with the pace of patches and fixes for this game :((((((((

    ReplyDelete
  65. Malinovka, Komarin, no reworks?
    Artillery, no limitations or tracer fixes?

    Why not? What was the point of creating the pools about this issues? Just to find out how many ppl are pissed, so you can maliciously laugh at them?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Calling it now...

    M3 Lee
    "Orange / Autumn" camo
    Rebel Flag - Clan Logo (ok that one is a reach)
    "Dixie" horn sound.

    Just need the Physics added in...
    YeeeeHaaaw

    ReplyDelete
  67. Im sorry... You seriously lost me at "Tanks:
    To be specified (no French tanks!)."

    ReplyDelete
  68. 8. Crew skill reset option

    As Shigy said already...

    Do you get Exp for the reset Skill back, or do you start in the new point?
    And... Will there be the new skills with the 7.0 patch, or will it come later?

    ReplyDelete
  69. Q: Is the camo paint going to provide an actual bonus to camo or is it just a visual thing?, I.E it wont provide any bonus it just looks cool.

    ReplyDelete
  70. @overload

    Q: are there any plans to get ATI crossfire to work properly? The game launches but once i load a match and the match starts it BSOD.
    Q: anyway of removing the FPS cap of 124?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hello Overlord. I like World of Tanks,but there are some small things I don't really like. First,matchmaking is so bad. You just can't (CAN'T!) put heavy tier 8 heavy tank in same round with tier 4-5-6 light/medium tanks (just example),because he will spit in their face with one bullet,and it's over.I suggest making games with same tier only. Second thing: huge disproportion between tanks. Quote from magazine which made review: "StuG III with long 75 mm gun and tungsten grenade would destroy without problems M1 Abrams when shot from 20m distance,if shot engine or back part of the turret,while in this game,he will be lucky to get 10% of IS-2's armor...and then die.

    ReplyDelete
  72. why would one want to reset there crew skill level?

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think they are talking about reset all your exp? Would be nice.

    Turrets flying would be damn awesome.

    Too bad we wont have the new FRA tanks for 7.0 =/

    ReplyDelete
  74. Hey Overlord, what did you mean by "conversion mechanics" in T34/M103 question ? Just curious what you mean and how that exactly works.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hey Overlord, will it be possible for me to put tigerstripes on my Tiger with the new Cammouflage?

    Also

    Will I be able to stog from hearing 1000 pings from my n00b teammates?

    Thanks in advance broseph, totes fo sho brah!

    ReplyDelete
  76. what about physics? they were originally planned for 7.0 if I recall.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Guys do you really want physics, there are already enough bugs, no one cares about, in the game and I don't want to imagine how many bugs will come with physics.
    When I watched the video lol at flying tanks, "is that a bird, a plain, no it's T-54, wheeeeee" :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Overlord
    Do you even know what the word Priority means? Apperently not. The American heavy line is fucked and since your not going to fix it, you need to BUFF the T34 in this next patch. It can not get any fucking more simple than that. PLEASE buff the T34, and stop being a bitch about it.

    Thanks,

    FROM THE ENTIRE FUCKING CUSTOMER BASE

    ReplyDelete
  79. Horns are going to be annoying... PLEASE Implement an option to turn horns off!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hey overlord,
    Will the new camo system impact the current custom tank skins at all? Will they still be usable?

    Thank you,

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hey Overload, seems this blog is getting more and more spammed by people who just want to whine and curse and generally act like spoiled brats.

    We all love the information you provide and appriecate it, maybe you could switch the blog to an internal blog, like on the forums where you have to log in with your game account to post, would stop a lot of the spamming here

    ReplyDelete
  82. Overlord, it appears that the 6.7 patch has made the E-75 and E-100 EXTREMELY vulnerable to splash damage and HE damage.

    The E-100 is very difficult to play.

    according to the forum info they will interfare whit playermade skins making the tank a visual nightmare. prolly done so by purpouse to try to remove the hit skins.

    ther is a discussion about it in the creative section on the forum.

  84. C'mon dudes .. no M103? seriously?

  85. Swamp map huh? Be prepared to move like molasses in German and US tanks.

  86. Q: When comes the better physics then? :) 7.5?

  87. Physics, wanted those ever since I saw that leopard backflip.

  91. I would just like to say how much I personally love how you keep your world of tanks gamers updated! Keep up the Good Work!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Q: Can we get options to put Derp Guns on all our T-5 Light tanks, the 120 for the T-50-2, the 105 for the M-24 to match the 2801 with the German short barrel cannon.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Overlord, Did you guys finalize the decision on what tank is going to replace Object 252 as Tier 9 heavy? T10/IS10?

    ReplyDelete
  94. Just be careful with the horns; there are a lot of kids that play this game that WILL mash the horn button NON-STOP if given the choice, so you'd better limit its use somehow or I will have to shoot them in the ass :P

    Curlyfries is right; the Chaffee and T-50-2 both need howitzers to match the ridiculously awesome german VK - historical accuracy be damned, you've already put the M41 Walker-Bulldog's turret as an option on the M24, give it a frickin' howitzer too :P

    Finally, have you considered modifying artillery to have a wider splash area but deal less damage? Might work out better that way (or it might not, it needs testing) Just a thought :)

    ReplyDelete
  95. hi, are there any weather effects in development ie: fog, rain, lightningstorm, snow, or playing in semi dark.. thanks

    ReplyDelete
  96. Can you guys work on adding support for multi-core CPUs?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Do something with arty, IMO make it an option to play with or without arty battles, and I would drive a VW bug around with a cannon duck taped to the roof and be happy.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Maybe the patch for the American heavys will come out in 7.2? Oh wait maybe will all the BS talk it will come out in 10.0. Overlord you know this is wrong to put off these tanks for so long after promising they will come out before 2012. What is it yall have againest Americans?

    ReplyDelete
  99. "8. Crew skill reset option" Really? What purpose will that do??? Seriously can you guys focus on things that are actually important, like fixing the match making system. Then maybe making the tech trees a little more balanced instead of making the American tree worthless. The excuse that I have heard is that the Russians do not know American tanks. That excuse is bullshit, get off your collective asses and actually ASK an expert.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Will a point limit be added to clan wars similar to the 90 point limit in tank companies in order to encourage the use of t9 meds and td's instead of using IS7's or T30/E-100 to do their jobs?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Thanks a lot for keeping us up to date. Great job development wise and great interaction with the community. Yet I have some questions:

    1. Will shell tracers for arty definitely make it back in? I am playing arty a lot (also before hard wipe) and I think that the return of shell tracers will MASSIVELY hurt arty. A low tier arty is fast and maneuverable enough to fire and get away. My GW Tiger however won't. This is sorta like the cold war scenario. I may fire first, but in the same way I will die immediately afterwards. Keep tracers out please.

    2. Will there be fixed horn sounds or can I, let's say, import an own audio file and thus have a completely unique sound? Dreadnought sounds from WH 40K Dawn of war would be awesome then :P.

    3. Clan logos: Automatically assigned to all vehicles a player has or an optional extra?

    Thanks again and keep that Object 212 in the garage ;P.

    ReplyDelete
  102. any screenshots from the new maps?

  103. FFS guys stop the whining about matchmaking. Its perfectly fine.

  104. Q1: So when tracers will be back? This is annoying getting hits from the ninja tanks :(
    Q2: There is any possibility to change spotting system/match making system? Now it's wierd getting hit, by tank and he don't show up even on open field...

    ReplyDelete
  105. Will you add possibility that player can give gold to clan?

  112. "Vehicle customization: camos and horn sounds"

    Horns?! are you serious, ain't it enough with half the team shooting wildly in the air (or at teammates if they are stupid enough) now we face the horns all the time??

    ReplyDelete
  113. Will there be changes to tier 9 TD in next patch?

    ReplyDelete
  114. About the maps:
    1. Swamp (jungles, anyone?)
    Somehow I most think of Guadalcanal (http://www.ibiblio.org/hyperwar/USA/USA-P-Guadalcanal/img/USA-P-Guadalcanal-58.jpg) and the movie "The thin red line" where you need the river for movement and with the jungle so thick it looks like a wall (http://cf1.imgobject.com/backdrops/964/4d07bf457b9aa11bc3003964/the-thin-red-line-original.jpg), with thick green grass on the mountain ridge.

    About the Camo... I hope it will be good with alot of choices... I like the desert camo on the ARL-44 (http://overlord-wot.blogspot.com/2011/08/2000000.html) It looks like something the french would really use.. or even had use (I´m not an expert in camo stuff)... but if I may can make a suggestion; I would love to have something like the panther in Trier, Germany (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26cSk60Aj3Y http://www.christian-schmidt.com/images/Panther.jpg)
    About the camos on the Wargaming TV. Episode 5. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPE4zfR12rc) sadly I havent find one which I fall deeply in love :( but It was alpha so I hope It will come more and nice stuff :)...

    So my Questions...
    1) Overlord can we have some screenshots about the camo patter which are coming in the game?

    In Wargaming TV. Episode 5. is mention that all players have to change their tanks skins to default, because in-game camo will be totally incompatible with custom paint schemes...
    2) So Overlord is this the case?
    3) and if yes! is there a way to reset them (I just found this forum topic http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/27881-original-skins-dds-files/ and I even dont know if it all up to date)

    Last point... about the horn sounds.. I hope their will be s slider in the settings to keep the volume of this things down... I think many players love to have the feeling to be in a italian city on rush hour :) but I love more the roar of guns :)
    4) Will their be an option to volume this horns down?

    Suggestions about the next Polls:
    1) Would you like to have the option to buy a M6A2E1, PzKpfw V-IV and M3 Stuart Lend Lease in the Shop as premium?
    o Yes
    o No
    o I dont care

    2)Should the T-23 (http://wiki.worldoftanks.com/T23) Have a change to come back as a Premium tank?
    o Yes
    o No
    o I dont care
    o Yes, but not as a premium

    3) Which Gun would you like more:
    o The 15.0 cm KwK 44 L/38 as a huge damge dealer
    o Or a 12.8 cm PaK with a long barrel, which gives you less damage but the option to snipe like a lot of other german tanks

  121. What is the point of putting new tanks in when you still haven't fixed the core functionality?

    1) Matchmaker
    2) Spotting
    3) Zero damage criticals
    4) Tracers
    5) Clan Wars

    Without fixing the core you lose most of your subscribers no matter how much new content you pump out.

  123. As overlord no matter how much we complaint in here or the official forums there gonna keep there agenda anyway. And he said in a post a while back that the public is somewhat "suggestive" but wont be a BIG factor in the development of the game so figure. Anyway after my sub is over think i`m gonna uninstall the game and looking for other titles rather then spending hours grinding in random que and been frustated that people have high tier tanks and they play like they have a loltracktor.

  127. Q: "8. Crew skill reset option" Really? What purpose will that do??? Seriously can you guys focus on things that are actually important, like fixing the match making system. Then maybe making the tech trees a little more balanced instead of making the American tree worthless. The excuse that I have heard is that the Russians do not know American tanks. That excuse is bullshit, get off your collective asses and actually ASK an expert.

    If needed? In case you haven't notice those two tanks have always needed a buff. But chances are you guys are going to put in on the back burner again.

    Anyway, what's with this French tanks? The M103 was announced before those and it looks like it's coming in after the french tank?

  137. You need to address the problem of someone going back into a tank that has been elited. And they have to grinded out experiance to get to a new tank that has been added to the tank tree for there country. i.e. I elited the VK 3001(P)in order to move to the Tiger (P) I am back in the 3001(P) but since it has been elited I can not us any of my free experiance. I have grind out 22K exp so far. But since cant and my free exp I have to grind out the whole 42K to get into the Tiger(P)

  141. Dear Overlord!

    I am looking forward to patch 7.0! However let me point to some tiny but annoying part of the software, what would be nice to be fixed in future (maybe 7.0 releases). I don't think they would be much work for your staff:

    - MOST ANNOYING PART OF GAMEPLAY FOR ME: Turret fixed horizontally by holding right click at the corner of a house, but when i go back to sniper view i see the sky instead of the point where i aimed my gun.
    - Dont show the minimap marks of ignored players (spammers)
    - Private channel to anyone
    - Customisable groups on contact list
    - Smaller tabs (with icons in there for example) for general, tank companies, your clan channel (i dont see the point why it is so wide, when it is maximum 5 chars long)
    - When a private channel fits not to the bottom bar the right arrow should be flashing if a new message arrived
    - Let us order the special battle screen by time of arrival, and tier/name
    - ruler for spec battle reserves (i know mousewheel works)
    - Some of us use same computer and same user (who actually swich user in Windows? :), so it would be nice if login screen would support more player profiles
    - Show how much extra hp a turret adds to a tank
    - Show those more infos wotdb has oficially for all tanks. I dont see the point why you hiding those informations
    - Show a timer for special battles for team/clan members. Maybe a different color if approximated? That would be awesome.
    - Login screen: @ is AltGr+V in hungarian keyboard - but clipboard is also pasted before the @, like i would hit ctrl+v then altgr+v

    These are the ones come in my mind for the first part.

    Thanks for reading Overlord, and please ignore those matchmaking m103 invisible tanks etc troll posts.

    Keep up the good work guys, you made one of the best game ive ever played already!

    Regards,
    Legitimista

  142. Stick those poles where the sun don't shine.
    Activate tracers ASAP. I don't care about cheaters. I'd rather have some cheaters ruining 1 out of 20 battles than having ruining 19 out of 20 battles - the 20th battle being the one without any arty.

    ReplyDelete
  143. So Overlord, WG plan is to remove small clans and clans that don't have all tier 10's from the map completely?

    Its hard enough as is for smaller clans to field a tier 10 team, now they can't use it?

    This idea will KILL Clan wars for allot of people. I would suggest you watch your statistics, and just watch how many clans stop playing CW all together.

    Is there any plans to bring back tracers ? if not are you going to be reducing the number of arti in games as the poll showed you people are sick of it now and it's getting out of hand..

  148. If you were not so lazy and read the posts before this, you would have read that the tracers will come back and that they are working on it to fix it.

  151. Hey Overlord. when they say delete crew skills for gold. Does that mean you can change that skill to a different one with the same level. for example change a 83% fire fighting skill to a 83% mechanical skill)? if not why have this change when you can delete skills for free?

  152. Q: Can we get options to put Derp Guns on all our T-5 Light tanks, the 120 for the T-50-2, the 105 for the M-24 to match the 2801 with the German short barrel cannon.

    hate to repeat but you seem to skip questions you don't like.

    ReplyDelete
  153. wow, i see whining never ceases in these posts.

    Fix tracers by bring back old stracers and removed the ability to use custom skins, esp now with new camos incoming. No more outside modification..
    Hit skins are a basically a cheat anyways so fix all problems in one stroke of the keyboard.
    People, as usual, have abuse the generosity and liberity of the game, so fix it and remove them.

    btw can't wait for my new german td's, too bad the american heavey's don't get what they need. I guess u guys better keep looking for hull down spots in the new maps

  154. I was just wondering with the Q1 2012 section of updates, is the T34 still becoming a premium tank in that patch? And if so, will it be nerfed down to T8 standards?

    ReplyDelete
  155. @ Glad, lol, nice to see you getting pissed off like that.
    But it say's clearly that it is in the works, not that it's planned. In the works means they are working on it and they will not work on something they do not put in the game. So that is a definite yes there.
    Just asking the same question that has been asked and answered 100 times before is just a sign of your lack of intelligence.
    Have a good day.

  158. Q- Is the US server exempt from Tank Freezing? Seems odd to do this..why?

    Thoughts about tank freezing. This will favor owners of LZ's. As clans fight in the LZ brackets they will no doubt lose tanks. So unless they have extra tier 10 tanks, they will end up fighting the land owner battle without their strongest force. or It'll make people go into early rounds with weaker tanks and try to slip by without losing their high level tanks. Either way this will drastically change how CW works. For better or worse is yet to be seen....

  162. Just asking the same question that has been asked and answered 100 times before is just a sign of your lack of intelligence..

    You really need to back to school dude - yes it's in the plans is not a concrete answer of yes or no - plans change - Given the fact that WG f---d up allowing players alter (or hack) parts of the game which are not server side to enhance their ability to cheat.
    Without major alteration of game mechanics i can't see how Tracers will be back in the said near future so they just feed you with "yes it's in the plans" just to keep you happy..

  166. Overlord, this tank freezing in clan wars.. is this going to effect tanks in the knock out phase or just battles with the owner?
    I ask because its going to end up with people going in to battle with just tier 8s against an owner.. after you have played five rounds to get to that battle.. and with the fact that its rare to get through unscathed.. your going to have a lot of tanks knocked out by that final battle lol

  167. NERF that f----g 59 premium tank or up the price like you did with the lowe, all ya see now in this game is premium tanks - granted it brings in the money but there must be other ways to do it than infest the game with premium tanks, matchmaking system is a peace of shit always has been, always will be

  168. October 25th BF 3 - MWF 3 Nov 8th - WOT - Dead on it's feet..
    Features:1. Vehicle customization: camos and (horn sounds)!!!!!!
    2. Company battle divisions: tier 10 max with no overall tier limitation, tiers 8, 6, and 4 max with the respective overall tier limitation.
    3. Mini-map customization and new functionality.
    4. Quick in-game violation report system
    5. Clan logos (Clan Wars only)
    6. Fog of war (Clan Wars only)
    7. Cooldown period for destroyed vehicles (Clan Wars only)
    8. Crew skill reset option (why the hell would u want to reset crew skills)
    9. Improved special effects

    None of this crap is gonna save this game - Too slow to bring out new game modes for the paying customers who are prob starting to use up their last bits of gold waiting for the new game releases, You need to kick your devs up the arse with the thick end of a size9 boot or this game is dead..

  169. Well Overlord, I want to thank you for saving me alot of money. Just by what you posted and by what is projected in the future patches. I will find another game that actually listens to there PAYING players.

    I do not see this game having a long future if the developers continue to cater to the minority, and ignore those that actually are PAYING for this game. Good luck.
