Tankers, we have some news for you. We have heard your frustrations regarding the Spare Parts system and Equipment, and we are making some significant changes to address those frustrations.

 

So let's cut to the chase. In Update 5.0:

 

  • Timers for unlocking equipment were removed.
  • From now on, equipment will be unlocked using credits instead of Spare Parts.
  • All Spare Part boosters will be converted into Spare Parts.
  • You will have an opportunity to spend your Spare Parts on some bundles in the in-game Store.
  • In the version coming after Update 5.0, all unused Spare Parts will be converted into credits.
  • All previously unlocked equipment slots will remain.
  • Each vehicle with at least 6 unlocked equipment slots will get the Strong-willed rare camouflage.

Morning has broken in Vineyards

 

In Update 5.0, we extensively reworked the Vineyards map. It was difficult to play on this map due to constant darkness, and its "heavy" graphics slowed down weak devices. Moreover, the statistics showed that the teams had unequal positions in some areas of the map. No one was happy about this, so we fixed it.

About time - it “only” took you a year to figure this out

 

Its a pity that we lost so many good community members because of sparts

 

perhaps reversing the decision will bring some back, but i fear the damage has been done and is irreversible

 

Hopefully we can have some variety in tanks again and build bigger garages

Finally!!!
I just hope that players who left the game because of spare parts and timer will have a reason to come back and play again. Good move WG!
It has been a long year of endless spare parts grinding and I still couldn't get all my tanks fully equipped... 

I hope WG's next move is to remove those cash-grab magical crates and just sell us the prem tanks as-is. Also please consider selling prem tanks without putting it in bundles. Some of us just need premium tanks without the extra goodies like boosters, prem time and gold. It may be cheaper but I'm sure you'll get more buyers than putting them in bundles and bumping-up the price.

When is the release date for 5.0 ?

 

When we sell a tank,

(1) will we receive the full amount of credits back for Parts mounted upon the Tank ?

    if so, then for those Tanks, which we have already sold, which had spare parts assigned to them, what will happen ? Do we get a refund ?

or

(2) will they be retained with the Tank for reinstatement when repurchasing it at a later date (just as is the case with current Parts).

Great decision and the communication has been crystal clear.

Brilliant turn around. Well done.

Nice Change, even though it's 1 year late. Finally seeing Wargaming moving on and correcting mistakes.

 

Next just need Gambling chests to be gone and modding to be revived and I am willing to sell my life for this game...

 

Thanks to the developers for listening and very big thanks for the Community Managers like RibbleStripe, MaxStyler and ZIoydd who are out here taking all the criticisms for the Developers and actually still doing their job here, at least our frustration has been heard and now addressed. this game cannot reach it's current level without these amazing community managers.

 

Now back to the job and make them reverse the decision of spamming us with gambling chests :trollface::P. Seriously, they need to be gone.

When 3.8 landed I had a garage of (iirc) +120 tanks, all fully equipped, and I enjoyed playing them all.

 

WGambling wrecked my garage with the inception of sparts. My garage instantly became full of tanks I now didn't want to drive. WGambling trod on nearly two years of effort. 

 

And now I'm supposed to be grateful when WGambling 'reverse' their offense? 

 

But is the offense actually reversed? Will 5.0 re-open ALL of the equipment slots on every tank I had when 3.8 landed? (I could accept the status quo for tanks acquired during the dark night of sparts).

 

No. No it won't.

 

So... meh.

I agree with your comments farly, but I’ve got to say that I have a renewed sense of enthusiasm for this game.

 

 I’m now planning which tanks I will buy back into my garage.  The tanks that I used to have fully equipped but didn’t use spare parts on because they weren’t  the highest priority for me.  Tanks like the panther or the hetzer.

 

Nonother game out there has the same level of interesting gameplay

A very welcomed change. 
I have around 110 and more than 70 of them are at least updated to 6 equipments. so i'll miss the opportunity to hoard the premium time but regardless very happy with the change.

Will it be possible in future to sell equipments in exchange for credits after 5.0 ? Also can u please create more bundles as shown in game news during 5.0 so that we can get even better deals if we had tons of spare parts left with us; something like 60/90 day prem time by exchanging spare parts. I would also like to know if all the changes of 4.11 open test will make it to 5.0 and will there be any more additions.And will we be ever able to unlock any equip in the future regardless which stage they belong to ,refined gun is a great equip but u have to unlock 6 equips before it which is a tedious job? Thanks

Hello Ribble, 

 

Now , i already have many tanks with more than 6 equipment slots open , so I should receive that free camo on those tanks. No probs with tank. 

 

However,  I also own Dracula, Helsing, Pz 4 anko, hetzer GUP and kuro mori mine... now those tanks don't have any camo but skins... 5 of those are fully equipped.  (With the infamous spare parts) .. so I won't get that camo as reward... so what will I get then for those tanks???

I guess no one cares, but... Tier V still can't join Supremacy mode games. If this isn't fixed in 5.0 can the docs, etc be changed to reflect that only Tier 6 and upwards can join Supremacy mode games.
