Server Split Up Discussion Thread

Дата: 08.12.2010 01:38:32
Tanitha: My version of what happened to the soft-wipe / clanwars..
I know a lot of you guys/gals are a bit annoyed that their is no soft-wipe in the short future. I also planned for it, I stopped grinding new tanks and instead played elite tanks knowing that the EXP on the elite tank would convert to free exp after a soft-wipe, So i have about 300k exp sitting in elite tanks now. Whatever, it happened, Maybe this is what I get for trying to take the easy way out... But the below is where the confusion came into things IMO.
For ages, we were always told, Full wipe on release, Softwipe will happen if its needed to be done, when its needed to be done..
A lot of players weren't happy with the "no date" comment above. So it was changed to...
The softwipe should be when the EU servers are released, the servers split, clan wars enters testing, new patch is applied,, IE before Xmas..
Now.. Two of those 5 things were delayed. Clanwars testing and the wipe..
Now we are just getting the new patch, new servers, a server split, and servers upgraded to handle 60k players each.
Either way, its hard for dev's to win, "Softwipe will happen if its needed to be done, when its needed to be done" wasn't good enough and got a lot of complaints, A expected date that's now changed, again isn't good enough and gets a lot of complaints, So its really hard to win either way.
IMO the reason clan war's is delayed is because unlike the majority of games, Wargaming.net aren't taking content out of the game during beta and scheduling it for "will come some time after release" like most other game companies do. In fact Wargaming.net keep doing the opposite, and adding more and more and more that they are trying to get out before release.. Dates are getting put back not because there is problems but because they keep adding more content in, trying to make sure the game is fantastic by release. With clanwars there was only originally a Europe map. With battles schedules for the prime time of the country you attack. IE all battles in Europe prime time. This is pretty useless to the USA players who aren't available at this time. So the USA maps that were scheduled for "after release" are now being coded up with the aim of adding them in before testing commences. So the delay on clan wars, is because they are making the system twice as big, and twice as good, instead of just rushing the game out of the door with a Europe only map..
Same with nations. At one stage there was only USSR and German tanks, + usa tanks coming. Now we have those three, and there's MORE coming, French tanks are now in planning and there is discussion of other nations in this post.. Link
I understand the misfeelings about the no softwipe yet. But IMO its all for the greater good, they are building up a huge game that will be fantastic on release. What you see now its only the tip of the iceberg.. Please be patient while they finish the project. They aren't removing content to rush it out, they keep adding more and more instead..
