Good day everyone,
Q&A video from WoT Console with developer Jeff Gregg going over the rhyme and reasoning behind the Frankenstein ‘Mercenary’ tech tree being added into the game.
Opinion time: I do find it pretty interesting how a dev team that ignores an entire forum “because they’re not representative of the whole community” in one video can then equate some hand picked group of people as “in collaboration with the community” for this, especially when the consensus in that community is that this iteration of the ‘mercenary’ line is nothing like what was teased over the years, and I personally feel that the game itself risks losing it’s identity with such a bizarre and unguided addition of content. Especially if such content will be overwriting actual historical content (picking the anniversary of D-day to announce your alternate history line, probably on par with forgetting Armistice Day to promote your comics WG). Especially when such content risks you losing your core audience when player numbers are at a low as it is (with Xbox global population numbering around 10-11k players at peak hours).
And for those who missed just what these “Mercenary” tanks look like:
Now for your opinions! I’ve heard some say that PC players will be envious of the upcoming exclusive content coming to console, so here are a few polls for you and another for everyone playing all versions of WoT (simple yes and no), and of course, feel free to express your opinions in the comments.
