    Actually a new wave of Invites went out today.

    The devs don't really know how to do anything right do they
    They do seem to never meet their deadline... i've question the choice of game engine a few times... but it's abit late to turn back now.

    Weird I haven't seen anybody talk about it (WoWP forums and friend wise). Guess nobody I know is lucky enough to get into this "correct opinions only" application process.

    They must be really desperate for money huh.
    You would think with all the Lowes and KV-5s I see that they would be rolling in money right now.

    Not to mention premium.

    I know I sound like a broken record, but they seem to know how to drink vodka correctly and that is it for the most part.
    They know how to ruin their public image.
    They know how to run a game into the ground.
    They know how to form excuses

    Anyone got a some good diesel-y, big engine sounds? I'm trying to revamp the ones in World of Tanks and I'm having to cull them from damn odd locations.

    I don't see much of a problem. I understand the NDA and all but it's going to be a free game.
    When you join the Alpha you personally sign for the NDA rules and if you break them it really is your own fault, how silly some of the rules might sound. If you don't agree with the rules, don't sign up for the Alpha.

    I still don't understand how those 2 pics dark posted were major breaches. I mean lets be honest here, they really didn't show almost anything about the game besides the hud. However that one champ who posted all them pics with alot of stuff in them last night, I can see that as a perma.
    Only reason the the the super mod came here is because GWweasel decided to be internet cop and moderators butt toy and reported him for no fucking reason. Seriously Perma ban that little shit, scum of the fucking earth.

    I think the fact that people here compare World of tanks to a drug, and have next to no trust in wargamming. In fact, if we trusted wargamming any less, it would be nonexistent. You think they would have learned by now.

    I really don't see how those two pictures that were posted were warrant enough for a permanent ban. Neither showed any vital component of the game, and more than likely serve to further player's interests. I can understand if it is a detailed video, explaining the mechanics of the game, but screenshots generally build intrigue. Hell, game developers have even said that this is the case regarding leaked content.

    All that harshly attacking the relatively small breach does (compared to others) all but guarantees that wargamming will lose all control of leaks, being instead posted through alts, non-NDA signers, or others.

    That's really the most pathetic part.

    Seriously, think about it. he was around here ages ago but left because no one particularly liked his constant whiny and complaining attitude about everything, then joined up with a WoT clan that used this thread to recruit. So you have to figure he has been stalking this thread for even the slightest transgression for months. How sad is that? How downright crushing is that, to realize there are people who will stalk you for months just to try to get you in trouble over a video game?

    I thought he was a tool at first, but honestly he just has my pity at this point. You got your small victory man, it's time to let go.

    There was a time when people like him were taken out back and shot.

    Seriously, I wonder how many people like him there is in the WoT community. If its more than a handful, then its a sad state of things.

    It was also never proven that he actually took the pictures. Of course Wargaming can ban who they want when they want but it's sad to see them take the "guilty until proven innocent" path.

    Oh well.

    According to Overlord, the way the French lights will get nerfed shall be

    1) passing ability reduction - they will have a lot more trouble on difficult terrain (like karelia or swamp)
    2) RoF reduction within the revolver - it will take longer to empty it to a target, for example the current AMX 90 which takes 12.5 secs to shoot 6 shells will take longer in 7.2, and the AMX 75 will definitely be hit even harder

    Heres hoping that once it goes to open beta or full open MadcattMkII can appeal his ban and get his account back. This whole situation is just fucked.

    Second one seems okay, the game is so alpha-biased that the revolver mechanic was better than I think originally intended.

    First one is awful though and will gut the French speed supremacy

    To be honest, I expected them to put comp b charges on every part of the tank set to explode whenever any damage is taken.

    it doesnt need to be nerfed in regards to its speed


    the tank has no armor, why would you make it slow down so it's even easier to kill?

    Edited:

    I mean yeah the 6 shot revolver can be a pain if he gets up close but it's not like you're going to see any french drivers effectively going 60km/h while blasting their gun and landing every shot

    People chose to break the NDA. That isn't WG.net's fault so there is no reason to moan about the NDA like this. Just don't send screenshots, videos or tell currently private info to anyone and it's fine.

    Well good luck to everybody who hasn't got accepted. I doubt they're sending out more today so who knows, we might get lucky tomorrow. I'm really doubting I'll get in before the weekend, though, despite answering every question that wasn't opinion-based correctly and applying 30 minutes after they opened global alpha applications.

    I wrote the form you had to fill in, personally I think that you should have had to write an application like original AT's did. This way the people who don't care and want to just be horrible, ruining it for everyone else, will not get in because most are too lazy to spend time to write a good app.

    Should have kept the Alpha small scale and only open to people willing to spend the time and put effort into their app, it should have gone AT to CBT not to some Global Alpha... as a developer said to me. "Global Leak". That's more like the name this should have got :/

    Anyway, I don't choose what WG.net decide to do but I still feel what they chose to do was a bad decision.

    So basically the tanks which are good at flanking and doing damage in the sides/rear before the enemy can get a shot back in their direction will be made bad at flanking and make it harder to do damage before having to retreat. Great!

    Still don't see reason for a major nerf on any of the AMX,the tank isn't that good,it has paper armor,you need to get closer to hit something,you don't have much speed on grass maps or swamp and the tank can get easily killed by pretty much anyone since it has lower life than any of it's tier and it's frontal engine that get disable with almost every shot

    The Only good about the tank is the revolver,that can unload 6 shells doing a shitload of damage and your speed of flanking high tiers

    I still don't see why WG has to be all Nazi about it. People only want to play and see the game. Disabling someones WoWP alpha account I can't see as being a decent punishment, but permabanning them from both WoWP and WoT is just excessive honestly.
