The Ask Ectar Some Questions Thread

878 posts in this topic

 

If you start up a new thread, I'll be your Huckleberry. Couple of things though:

 

  • I'm not a dev, so please don't ask technical questions or questions about future content
  • I can't guarantee I'll be able to reply to every question
  • I'll only be able to reply about once a week
  • I especially won't be replying to any question dripping with passive aggressiveness comments, straight up angry comments or where you give closed options (for example "Are you going to admit arty is a fail or will you continue to mess up the balance of the game").   

 

 

 

If a new thread is made, yes, I'll come back in about 3 hours time to answer what I can

 

 

I guess I'll make the thread to ask Ectar some stuff. Not like I got much else to do at the moment.

 

Can we get a mod or admin to move this to the appropriate section?

What does Ectar do? Not necessarily a question for him, just curious.

I believe Ectar answers questions in attempts to calm rustled jimmies.

Edited, didn't read the OP properly, excuse me.

 

What would you say is the most pressing issue WoT faces at the moment?

There's been talk of 'big changes' coming in the next few patches - what would this refer to? I'm guessing the penetration nerf will be one of them, but I'd like to know more.

He's not answering dev questions ._.

I got a question.

 

Ectar, unsure if you'd be allowed to answer this or not....

 

We've heard through various leaks and statements from RU devs that a certain NA player (probably Garbad) was infamous for his anti-arty crusade. Are there any other NA players that have become well known (or infamous) to EU or RU employees?

Why does support not manually deal with trolls and ban them based on replay evidence? For example the latest case of the violet stet pedder;

 

 

Any implemented system to catch people can not compete with the complexity of the human mind and the way trolls behave.

How much communication is there between the different server groups?  Does each server just do their own thing or is there some form of central leadership?

OK, this is a question that's been bugging me for a while now.

 

Why on earth can you get banned for team damage in strongholds? This changed a patch or two ago and I can't imagine why. Before the change, we in LIMBO/AWFUL would end every game in a glorious group hug (see one such hug at the two minute mark in the following video).

I like to think the change was caused by a clan complaining about team damage without realizing they could just, you know, kick the player from the clan.

Are you currently a regular on any streams? I really enjoyed it when you joined Circon (even tho that was more than a year ago).

Is there a chance that specials on NA and EU will be the same again like they were more than a year ago? Also is it possible to know why this practice was discontinued?

btw: You rock.

Are there any plans to remove the IS-6 on account of it being OP, and if so, by when do I need to get it.

Speaking of which, I don't even need to pay for my prem tanks because skirmishes basically bathe you in gold if you're on a half-decent team. Whose idea was this originally, and why? Not complaining, just curious.

Finally, were most of the new maps coming out right now concieved during the pre 8.6 era of arty dominance in high Tiers? When can we expect more dynamic mixed maps like Normandy?

Ectar,

What are the biggest challenges to the game from a community perspective?

You realize that Ectar is from WG-EU and that there are no things like Skirmishes on EU server (population is big enough, not much promotion needed)?

Ectar do you like Anime!?

 

More serious question...

What do you think of the Wotlabs community? And do you ever plan on making an account to chat with us more directly rather than going through a middle man?
