Here's some direct feedback for you from Priolia with regards to some of the concerns mentioned in the forum.

 

Crashes.

 

Starting from 2.0 we were constantly working on removing OOM (Out of memory) crash from the top of the game crashes list. We removed all severe performance peaks by 2.0.2 that allowed us to see the next layer of performance issues. After that we added texture streaming for static and part of dynamic objects and this moved the main performance load from CPU to GPU and finally in 2.0.4.12 we moved OOM crashes from the top of the  game crashes list. And in it' s turn this moved us to the next layer of performance issues which was constantly hidden from us because of OOM crashes. So next steps will be taken towards further game logic and load distribution optimization.


Bugs.

 

90% of reported bugs are knows issues and you probably want to know that bug fixes can only be delivered with the updates, so if you report stuff and there's no update it means that we know the issue but it is not fixed yet.  Also bugs have priorities. Not all the bugs get the highest priority. Please make sure you report to Support  - preferably. Please know that we’ve raised the priority for WoWP reports for Support so the tickets reach dev team faster. Also please mind that support can give advises and solve issues mostly on account and in-game property, and in most of the cases won’t be able to advise anything on game client issues as those need to be investigated first. 


Glitches

 

This it probably about server performance + bugs. Which would have the same answer as above. Except just that server glitches sometime can be caused by user internet connection and global internet connection issues in data centers. All server issues are monitored by Global WG Server support department and every incident gets a proper notification to the development team.

 

Clan functionality

 

This is a bit stuck at the moment because of the clans transferring and separating from other games clans system. Work had to be finished already but there’s a delay due to technical and team overload reasons. 

 

Processing feedback

 

This is what I hope will be improved with a new CM on EU. The development team have to have back their regular community feedback digests which was interrupted due to EU WoWP Publishing Team reorganization.

 

Thanks for this Eekeeboo and Priola, I appreciate getting some clear answers, even if there is some room for cynicism remaining.

 

I'm not an expert on all software/hardware stuff, so I can't be certain on all of Jakub's responses, but when it comes to the  'WG Check' and it's reporting system I have my own concerns as well. I won't be touching that again. The amount of mess it leaves behind and the unfathomable amount of crap it seems to process and dump is fishier than a fishwife's fishsticks with extra sardines on top. The best thing I ever did for my PC performance was get rid of that and scour out all the crap it left behind.

 

Otherwise, thanks for the info at least, genuinely appreciated to get clear comms here. Cheers Eek.

Hi eekee, so your "mysterious" travel to Paris is finally and officially explained now :). A hearty wish of good luck in your new position, I sincerely hope it will help to fulfil EU´s community´s secret dreams of being listened to for a change. Of course you shall be but one wheel in the greater machine of WG and therefore will have your limitations but nevertheless I wish you that your enthusiasm for the game lives on and helps everybody - WG as well as the rest of us who love this game and who have been around for a while. So good luck again! :honoring:

 

 

You mean you didn't believe I was a man of exotic travels and jet setting ways? And thank-you as always a true gentleman! Here's hoping with the help of the community we can get where we would all like to be.

You are welcome, I am aware this is perhaps not the perfect answer you were looking for. But hopefully an illustration on how concerns are being listened to, information is being passed on. Now and moving forward hopefully that information can be more fluid and more 2 way. As for the WG check that is fair enough, and understandable. I have been in a position previous where I've run out of ideas on a fix and had to resort to whatever I could find and I have (as of yet) come across no issue etc.

Having my father in hospital, the last two days, wasn't able to visit the forums.

Having a CM is a surprise, and a pleasant one since its you m8!

At least you play the game and can understand well our problems. Hope to survive in this post and eventually help this game to evolve to something playable and fun.

I will constantly express to you my (wrong or wright) objections about the game, in hope, that will be passed to developers, in order to have changes or additions that at last make the game

pleasant (also) to old players who liked the old format.

All the best  :)

I'm sorry to hear your troubles and you have my sincerest sympathies! I wish your father a speedy recovery and that your own health continues to prosper! 

 

Thank-you for your kind words and I'm happy to have such endorsement. I aim to do justice, and know that in whatever capacity I am able to do so I will try to help when I can. Objectives and feedback is welcome. Criticism is crucial! But as long as it remains constructive and not insulting etc then I will always listen. As long as you can acknowledge I don't have to and will not agree with everything you say and in turn I will do the same we shall get along like spotted dick with custard!

Its good to have some official active on forum, but i doubt it will have much influence, since they never listen to community anyway.

Hello, I would like to know, is there any plan of update in future with option to play only PvE (only bots)?

 

I play almost daily bombers airplanes, other classes I play too but just for lucky win when bonus x3. I like to play with bots (both own team and enemy team) because human players capture base too fast.

In a previous Developer QnA it was stated there's a plan for potential PvE style game-mode but plans and timescale are, as of yet uncertain. But the possibility is being explored.

Scenarios like WoWs, maybe recreating certain battles, or things like escorting some massive bomber/zeppelin pve only with various difficulties levels/rewards would be more welcome than mindless bot massacring.

Well,  as someone already stated,  you do have "mission impossible" ahead.

Assigning old player as CM is IMHO good thing, but it only matters if they are willing to back you up.  

If you are here only as a buffer zone between WG and community, it's going to eat you in few months.

But you took the possition, so maybe they supplied you with something you could believe. Plans, prices, planes, Priolia's promises, whatever it was it raises my hope a notch.

I love to play this game, and I am maybe one of few who is not completely annoyed by this 2.0x "again" version.

There is nothing to prevent you from re-creating scenarios in the training room and having set criteria battles as we did before. For example popular nights used to be gathering most of the experienced community and having a night where everyone queued in tier 3's. Or using aircraft only available historically at a battle etc.

Hello and nice to see you. I saw a lot of things I could do to help the community and ways I along with others would be able to turn it into a positive force for both new and old players. As for eating me.... I am a firm believer spotted dick and custard is enough to fill any person no matter the size of their appetite!

The thing that prevent me from recreating scenarios in training room is the fact that for past months, i couldnt even find a clan ( nor did i saw one at least recruiting or being a clan ) that had more than 3-4 people online at any hour ( even tried a polish clan 302 or something that had 100 members , but for the 2-3 days i stood there i never saw more than 3 people online ). Dont know what planet you live on, but if you could point me to where there is such community that organize such event i wouldnt say no.

You don't NEED a clan for this, though helpful. Past organised events have been created through the forums and social media parts. I know what it's like to see many older and veteran players leave the game. But it wouldn't stop me organising an event of challenge with people i knew. 

 

All you need to do is look at the forums, look at the community and actually listen for things that going on. For example the NA server a few months ago trialed a community Clan wars event. Though not overly popular, they at least tried something and it got a fair few teams together. I've done and had conversations with people when I was streaming from other servers to try out funky things like no UI games and spitfire vs 109 only battles etc. 

 

There is nothing to stop you taking the initiative and creating such things yourself as well. Just a suggestion.

That would require being dedicated fully to a game, which im not. Not to this game. Not that i didnt intended at some point, but because it fails big time and at the state it is at now, it doesnt deserve dedication. Completely unfair matchmaker, tons of bugs, unfair or badly designed events , developers that do nothing but completely opposite of what people complain or wants and i could go on.Farming of tokens for WoT premium time is the only thing that prevents me from uninstalling it atm.

And are you trying to have fun of me or are you living in a completely outer world of yourself with community events? Cause the most recent topic i can see on contests and events forum page is like from 2015.

I think you're reading too much into what he said and actually looking to take it personally. You can't blame everything from WG's past on him, you know he's just started working for them and not even he knows how much influence he will have in shaping WG managements response to current issues.

Yeah i know, and he probably is forced now to only speak positive. But when i cant find a clan to have at least 5 people online at the same time and 99% of random games are 3v3 humans the most, suggesting that there is actually a community here and we should make interesting event in training rooms , i get the feeling he either take us for idiots or he is some sort of John Lennon of WoWp.

Or it could be when I and others found there were not enough community events we were proactive and took action to remedy the situation. This is how all community events are organised and begin. I am happy to help you where I can and when I can, but I will not be dragged into a negative downward spiraling tit-for-tat. I'm sure you as well as myself have far better things and more productive and positive things to do with our time. 

 

The clans are there, with recent recruitment pages open. I know of people in-game who recruit through private messages. There is nothing to stop you private messaging someone with a clan tag you recognise and see a lot in game.

These clan tags should be put back in the player list at the loading Screen And ingame screen of the player list.

I never understood why this was taken out as one can see them in chat and in the After-match screen.
