Hello all! 

 

Having gone around various sections requesting people for their top 5 desired features to return or to be introduced to continue or come back to playing. I have finalised the summary as follows. This has been passed on and we can hope for some of them, but no promises are being made: 

 

Top 5 Community desires from EU:

 

  1. Fix Bugs.
  2. Optimisation.
  3. End-game content (clan battles).
  4. New/More Game modes in rotation.
  5. New content (Aircraft lines).

 

Fix bugs:

General desire for most bugs and things that cause crashes and issues to be addressed and prevent interruption in game-experience. Such bugs like chat window bugs, flight accepting bugs. Issues in the hangar causing crashes and in-game graphics bugs like respawning spectating a bot aircraft or from inside your aircraft so you cannot fly.

 

Optimisation:

Improved optimization in the hangar speed, but also in game so that FPS is not only higher but more stable. Many people have issues on certain maps causing large drops in frames, slow loading and especially when trying to stream. A lot of requests for updated engine and the use of systems in other games like carousel in ships to speed things up for players.

 

End-game Content:

Main request has been for players to have something to do with their tier 10’s or at least for them to have a use for the clan system. This has included requests for ranked game modes like in ships where every few months you have a ranked “season” where you play a ship (aircraft) of a certain type to level up in ranks for a reward. The idea of clan battles and having more hardcore deathmatch style games that allow players to be able to purely dogfight one another and play as a coordinated team. Currently maps don’t accommodate this very well but is a frequently requested feature.

 

New/More Game modes in rotation:

Many players state that they would like to see attrition in the normal map rotation. For there to be more variety in game modes and to have the choice to disable them if you the choice is there like in World of Tanks, encounter battle modes etc. Some people liked the idea of invasion game mode as well and how this could be used for some clan wars content.

A lot of requests for hardcore or deathmatch modes for no respawn etc.

 

 

New Content:

Many requests for new lines and to extend the grind for many players. A lot of requests for French aircraft, finishing of lines that are currently introduced.

 

Other popular requests outside the top 5:

  • Bot AI optimization and improvement to also remove issues with odd bot behavior
  • Removal or change of daily missions requiring tier 1-4.
  • Map balancing and the changing of asymmetrical maps.
  • Free selection of equipment and consumable slots for specialist configuration.
  • Balancing and re-working of specialist missions to be more suitable for certain aircraft.
  • Ability to better personalize your plane; camo, nose art, emblems etc.
  • Material earning rate and methods to be balanced – earning on a loss, performance based not Win.
  • Test server – The ability for players to give more feedback before patches
  • Clan systems for upgrades like from World of Warships bases or Tanks bases to give clan bonuses.
  • Better game sounds and more feedback to be more visceral.
  • Plane anniversaries and birthdays to return
  • Gold consumables for credits.

-Removal or change of daily missions requiring tier 1-4.

could you define this? aka what does it mean?

 

personly im a low and mid tier and i cant complete all 3 steps of the daily mission cuz i dont have any high tiers, so if the complaint is that you must have low tiers to do the daily missions then my complain in return would be that you are forced to have high tiers to complete dailys.

After 2.0.5 I would give this absolutely highest priority, even higher than bugfixing

With the current system experienced players are forced to do sealclubbing.

That players cannot do missions because they don't have yet tier8 planes is a much smaller issue.

I think most people complain about requirements being retarded and impossible to achieve for daily mission on some tiers, rather than remove the 1-4 part.
Also you forgot to mention the totally unfair matchmaker, that put flight vs no flight, humans of different tiers and plane types , and usually unbalanced teams by having 3-4 humans in a team that score 5k+ , and muppets that score 1k on the other.

And the accuracy and damage of AA guns and defense planes. SOme low tier GAA have become unplayable( and overall most low tiers, also fighters with very low hp have this problem ), you are just shredded in few seconds the moment you get close to a base( its difficult for a good player to get a garrison by himself, cant even imagine how new people react to such deadly defense and most games i see in low tier are just spammed at start with dead/dead/dead/dead by AA or defense planes ).

Nope, I think it's the requirements insane for low tiers (rocket bases that don't exist down there, the required amount of damage etc.) In a 10 Token task, the requirements for low tiers must be lower.

 

And sealclubbers do it for the stats. All the missions of this world can't justify 3k out of total 5k games being flown in I-5. But that gives you 60+%.

I totally agree with you. Changing the missions will not prevent egoists and stats padders from sealclubbing and when I join the sealclubbing a have a chance of maybe 30% (I don't know the number) to get a map where I'm actually able to achieve what I'm looking for (capture plants or whatever)

But currently we are forced to do the sealclubbing and this must be really bad for new Players.


 

@eekeeboo: you forgot something.

1. Fix this stupid pseudo random Calibration feature. I don't want to get rid of it, there has to be a way to tune Bonus and Penalty but the current System is really bad.

2. Let us choose the Enhancement Bonus or at least let us reroll.

This is actually a minor complaint not many people expressed vs the majority of people who have said the other things stated were. 

 

View Postklbergmen, on 05 July 2018 - 11:29 AM, said:

 

 

I didn't forget anything. That list is of the most frequent top 5 things people said and sent me. Only twice did calibration removal come up, 3 times for 2.0.5 reversal come back. Bug fixes and optimization was in about 90% of answers. This list isn't mine. This list is literally counting the amount of times each feature was brought up and put in top 5 of most frequently mentioned. The others mentioned were less frequent but still arose multiple times.

I already have forum feedback, this is more than just going through forums for the same people's answers. This was going through forums, discord, streams, reddit, chatting with people in-game etc. This was a broad sample set from as many people as I could. Including the NA community. "several" would account for perhaps 20 people, maximum on the EU forums who have particular issue with calibration. That's who has been vocal and said something. That is a small portion of the player base not only in the EU but over-all also. 

 

When asked to prioritize desires and wishes, optimisation, bug fixes and new content/game modes were the top 3. Next it was a close tie on clan battles and increased combustibility. I chose clan battles because of the amount of times people requested "end-game" content like ranked also. So, that's why that was put there.

You are welcome and thank-you. I didn't do all the work, this is just a small task on trying to get more information across. It is down to the team in RU and the developers who are doing a lot of the heavy lifting and of course hard work and time taken by people who took my request seriously. Hopefully this sort of thing will lead to a positive move towards the things players whom I asked and others really want.

community interaction and feedback is very important. i stopped posting and reading here a while back because i never saw even a single response from wg to any question/feedback ever. well, except having posts censored and warnings given...

Since Priolia said they are working on those "points", can we have an ETA?

 

This summer? Autumn? Winter? 2019?

I mean, attracting new players and retaining old ones is really hard with current state of the game.

 

Its fun, no doubt, but frustration is slowly taking its place....

 

Anyways, thanks for your effort.

Bugs and optimization are not gamebreaking stuff...you reset the client and it's ok, as for optimization it helps stopping those 10 tabs in the background running pr0n/anime/hentai, stop playing on sh1tty laptops, etc

In regards to other "popular requests"

- Bots work ok, people just don't know how to take advantage... if they would react to commands like "Clear my tail" "Attacking sector x", i would take full advantage of it and people will start to QQ again about bots being too powerful.

- I don't support the REMOVAL of T1-4 missions, just a rework of some SPECIFIC ones that players has 0 control in it, and rework the damn values... you can get 25k base XP 5-6 games in the T8-10 bracket, but like 20-25 games in the T1-4 bracket and that is a huge waste of time and a sealclubbing fest.

- Free selection of equipment and consumables in the specialist configuration, THIS is just crap... "players" want to get 1 piece of each equipment to ULTIMATE 478value and after that be able to swap it around all their planes. It's plane laziness, how can you ask of them to grind mats for each plane.

- Balance for the specialist mission, another NON-ISSUE. The values and grind involved is ok, problem is that in the 5-7 bracket it's pure RNG... i got 5 games that could've progressed me 50% towards specialist but didn't cuz team lost, and no, it wasn't cuz the enemy was better... my human players were pure garbage, a mix of AFKs and incompetents that were beyond salvation or carrying them.

- Ability to better personalize your plane, is this "Hello Kitty" online or what?

- Gold consumables for credits... HOW ABOUT NO!

 

Add a mode for the 1.9 freaks, give them 2 maps for each bracket and let them go ape, with no benefits in terms of XP, credits, etc

More planes yes... start expanding the other tiers, add a heavy line and 4-5 bombers to the japs, fromage can get some love too, Italy as new nation to reinforce the axis side, more modes on rotation yes, a clan war 5v5 mode with garbage rewards and something like a season "ranking" to satisfy their e-peen.

I have to ask again - the only negative Feedback about Enhancement/Calibration comes from the Forum ? Everybody else is happy or at least doesn't complain ?

Then I should just shut up, whats the point if we are the only ones and everybody else is ok with it.

There are other complaints about the enhancement/calibration. But those players account for such a small amount of the community. In an ideal world we would have positive and negative feedback from all. But as it is, we usually only get negative feedback. Very few times good. If I were to ask for positive I can guarantee with 1 million % certainty someone will say "It's rubbish bring back 1.9" etc. 

 

Feel free to keep providing feedback it is valued and useful!

I cannot tell you when, or even if those things will be addressed. I can say those are the things that people said they wanted the most, or occurred most frequently in feedback. Whether it's possible to fix or when that may take place is a completely different matter. This was just to highlight the issues that people have provided me and features they want.

For some other than ourselves many of these issues are quite serious. It is unfortunate they are there, but this is purely what the community has given me. I felt it might be ideal to show this to people so they can see the priorities of what players are saying they want. And what some on the forums are saying they see everyone want.

It is a good list to start with and things can always be added later on.

 

Let’s hope we see some action taken on some of the points in short order.
