So I have a stupid idea. World of tanks:vanilla

27 posts in this topic

So wow is going to make vanilla servers. I have never played wow so idk but I have watched some really old wot replays on youtube and got a stupid idea. What about wot:vanilla? Like dis:

 

Heavy tanks go up to tier 10

Medium tanks go to tier 9 (I'm not really against tier 10 mediums tho)

Tank destroyers go to tier 9 (This I definitely do want)

Artillery tanks go to tier 8 (basically to current tier 8 arty

Light tanks I don't know. Ideally I'd want the old light tanks back.

 

Old physics: 

Tanks get stuck whe driving into each other

Sidescraping against other tank slows down both tanks

Can't drive up or down steep slopes

Can't flip over

 

Old aiming system with 20% of the shots going to the edge of the reticle. Not so sure about this but would help light tanks, especially with old physics so you can motocross around the map.


No premium ammo or consumables

No 6th sense

Shell normalization from 2 to 5 (ap)
Matchmaker as it is today (no 5 tier mm)

 

Does it sound bad to you? I'm kind of semi serious about this. Maybe as a separate game mode so you could choose whether to play in standard servers or in vanilla servers. Credit and exp progression would be the same on both servers.

Splitting the server population is a bad idea. Also not interested in the slightest...

If you would also bring back the old tank stats, tech trees (rus, ger, us - remove everything else, maybe exept the french) and old tracer system I would start playing WoT again!

I WoT wasn't half dead i would be a nice "side game" to be added, interesting at the very least.

I think the old game balance was pretty poor compared to today. Not sure if I'd prefer the old balance. There were some absurdly op tanks. Old hellcat, old kv and old su-85 among other things were just on wrong tier. Old tanks is a bit like the old maps. Nobody wants old kampinovka, old el halluf or old murovanka... old redshit.... I mean nobody wants those things back for sure??

so basically throw the game back to 2011? but with the current MM and tech trees?

 

ehhh, nah. if it was 2015 I'd be interested. (IMO 2015, about the time of the 3rd campaign was when WoT was at its absolute best)

Unfortunately for the asia server, it was the peak of the VN rigging.

I do think WG should do an anniversary event where they bring back one of the builds from a couple years ago as a temporary "test server." It could actually be a PR tool where they say "see how far we have come." All the long term players would get a kick out of it for a little while. Everyone would realize that despite all the complaints we have about the game there are actually many things that are much better than they used to be. And since it was a temporary server it would be gone after just a few weeks.

Member only good shells for gold, i member. Member platoons only for premium users, i member.

 

This might be fun, release 0.8 or some old version without most of tanks and today’s goodies.

I want WG to go back to +/-4 MM just for a week to show all the pubbies whingeing about +/-2 MM how stupid they are.

and if they did that they'd be doing it WITHOUT all the old tanks and gun options on those tanks that allowed them to better fight higher tiers.

I'd like the same, for the opposite reason.

I'd like all the old-guard players in this game to play tier 6's with no prem ammo against IS-7s and tell me with a straight face that the gameplay is fun, interesting, and competitive.

Most of it is just flat out better today than it used to be IMO, except the accuracy nerf.  The very first tier X battle I ever saw was in a Chaffee when I had less than 3K games, fuck that noise.  Call me crazy, I actually mostly like the current iteration of the game except for the fact that they have ruined tier 8 AFTER selling me four premium tier 8 tanks.

Would be so crazy to back 4 years when you could solo 70%+ in a T67. Nowadays you can barely pull off 70%+ solo in it from all the work done balancing the game.

Imho "balans" is not the reason here. Rather everyone but the most retarded pubbies will learn a thing or two after 2-3 years.

Best example: Lakeville. When I started WoT I would be able to shoot pubbies heading into the town literally every game. Nowadays even tier V pubbies know to drive into town at the utmost rear (in the rare case where they don't push the swamp).

Nothing. When people want the "old" game back, they really do NOT want the old game but rather the old feeling of wonder.

Back in the time WoT felt new and great. There were many things to discover, many stats to pad and many CW to win.

However most here have between 20 and 50k games and any wonder and excitement they felt back then is very likely gone - forever. And only a fool thinks a game would be super again if it would revert to the old (crappy) engine/rules/unbalance from n years ago.

One thing that I would like from this charade is everything new with old maps, and by that i mean stupid El Haluf with that rock on B2, old Siegfried line, Port (i think it’s called), and new ones. Mayhem. :kappa:

8.6, when everyone thought arty was crap and stopped playing it   :kreygasm:

Yep, it would definitely be cool to have a temporary server up to experience the 8.6 again. IMO that was the best time, up until 9.0.

I'm not really disagreeing but for me the game has been unplayable after the hesh guns and broken tier 10. Getting rid of tier 10 TDs, getting rid of prem ammo, getting rid of of type 5 and bringing back old physics would already cure a ton of big issues in wot. The idea of vanilla wot is not really to roll back time but to roll back some features. Getting all those shitty maps tanks map back along with the old arty and mm would be just retarded decisions.

But for example getting rid of hesh guns along with tier 10 TDs would allow more aggressive gameplay when single mistake won't mean getting oneshotted by bushkemper. Type 5 and its prem ammo is just one of the worst things you can do to this game. Removing all that horrible shit would effectively remove oneshotting from top tier gameplay which has 0 negatives. Old physics would kill boosting and would help massively with map balancing. It would also help bringing back really mobile small tanks. It would also help medium tanks when in 1vs1 situation the td can not escape as easily as it can with later physics. Getting stuck to terrain was shitty when it happened with old physics but it was so rare that I don't really mind.

Wot vanilla is pretty stupid idea though because there is 0 chance wg will ever do it. And the average potato loves his arties and TDs and the hesh ammo. Taking that away would just end up in massive tantrums. Even as a separate game mode it would be massively controversial. And might not even work at all. Plus going back to something would be seen as downgrade. But still it might be enough for me to play wot again. I'm not sure about others.
