Return of General Chat, LOLz

SO much info on those pages, it looks like gold the probably the best rewards for the coins??  I kinda assume you can only buy 1 gold pack, because the gold per coin goes DOWN as you spend more.

I am blind. Where is the gold option?

You aren’t missing anything. I misread the posting. I thought you could use coins to get gold. They just give you coins with the gold bundle.

Ok, good deal. Just wanted to sanity check since i'm not too into anything they are offering for the coins right now.

Just read it and....

Wow. Biggest thing which jumped out on me is the thought that 3-6 months is too short for balance picture. And yes, they think they can get it right in one go. Let me use the example of literally every single asymmetric online multiplayer game ever, as to why perfect game balance will never work.

Is that a more recent Q & A than the one back in December 2019 at https://www.mmowg.net/world-of-tanks-the-future-of-the-game-qa-2020/

If it is please give me a link.

Yeah different one, and I would have linked had I realised there was about to be a whole bunch of translated qnas come out.

There are probably other translations out by now, but this is the one I'd seen...

On the note of powercreep, I think one thing that bugs me is its been so heavily relegated to tier 8 and up. We aren't seeing all tanks progressively gain a half tier, just the ones they really monetize. So when you actually get a tier 7 match it more closely resembles what WOT used to be. Meanwhile, driving a tier 7 in a tier 9 match more closely resembles what it felt like to be a tier 3 in a tier 5 match (outside of the really overpowered tier 3s)

Tier 7 is fucking unplayable anymore. Bouncing shot after shot of gold in a goddamn fixed gun TD against the flavor of the month new tier 8 heavy has gotten real old. Basically everything goes to shit from tier 6 on in terms of balance because 8-10 is just constant creep while 1-7 haven't seen rounds of buffs in literally 5+ years.

Unplayable on a broad basis, with some exceptions. The exceptions being tanks that really have a gimmick like the T29's turret armour, the T-44-122's alpha, good gun handling and depression like the comet, or really high mobility with decent stats like some of the lights. Tanks which are relatively balanced without a gimmick are suffering. I'm playing through the Tiger P now (save me), and playing it just drips old WOT in tier 7 matches, not to mention the old way of doing armour schemes.

Meanwhile at tier 9 now, I don't even think the old tier 9 IS-4 would be out of place, and the old Vk 4502B could have probably been passed off as a good tier 8.
