World of Tanks v.0.6.4 update: Discussion of preliminary patch notes

Дата: 11.05.2011 18:32:16
View PostJRzez, on May 11 2011 - 19:07, said: First of all, before I get into this, I would like to really thank you for taking some time and posting here so we can finally have someone to work with us and communicate what we're experiencing in game.

ChrisK: You're entirely welcome!  :Smile-izmena:

Quote One can't blame the tempermental nature of German tank's equipment, then ignore the problems the Russians experienced.

ChrisK: We're not - that was just by way of comparison. Mechanical reliability, training differences, tactics - that stuff is all out the window. This is only about tanks. None of the other factors impact gameplay, making it quite different from the historical experience of WWII tankers with air support, training, etc.

Quote ...EVERYONE (outside of Russia apparently) feared German tanks until the very end of the war.

ChrisK: No, they feared German tankers. The fact that those tankers were in German tanks is what made them tankers, but the German crews in the captured tanks from other countries (French/Czech/American/Russian) did very, very well, in spite of difficulties in ammunition and parts supply. Even in lousy tanks (Wittmann started out in armored cars and graduated to StuGs before moving into Tigers).

Quote You guys...

ChrisK: FYI I am all-American  :rolleyes:

Quote ...every surrounding and non-surrounding country got information from captured tanks to use it to their best knowledge in case of confrontation.

ChrisK: The Soviet Union conducted some of the most thorough tests on foreign armor ever made, but the commies didn't want to share very well back then. The bulk of the war was fought on their soil, and once they started winning it (1943), they had quite a lot of material to use for testing. In addition, they had Lend-Lease US and British tanks by the hundreds. I'll try to dig some up and post it. BTW, they hated the British stuff. :Smile_harp:

Quote It's called game balancing.

ChrisK: Hence all of the tweaking and nerfing that everyone complains about with every patch - trying to get the balance right. It's a long, tough process. BTW I have worked on a bunch of other games and teach game design, so I'd be happy to describe the process to anyone interested.

Quote Right now German tanks are at a disadvantage being "snipers", as the game for the most part doesn't present the opportunity to do so, and when you spot say a Russian tank due to view range cap, even though they lack accuracy, they still hit you, and when they hit, they hit harder than anything out there.

ChrisK: When I play TDs (about half the time), I play German. I kill commies without too much difficulty. It is a bit like sniping, which is probably why I enjoy it. :Smile-izmena:

Quote now the 88 buffs are not happening to beyond 6.4?

ChrisK: I'm still tracking that specific info down and I will post it when I get it. Honest.

Quote I'm curious to see what you guys do to the E-series tanks.

ChrisK: Me too!  :lol:  

Quote Thank you again for your time.

ChrisK: Once again, you're quite welcome and I hope I've explained our line of reasoning adequately. More questions are always welcome (just don't expect me to live online, LOL!).
