For the Record: Q&A for EU/US
Hello everyone, okay, I must admit I’ve been thinking about this for a very, very long time. Why isn’t there a real Q&A thread for EU/US people, apart from that thing Quasar posts, which is slow, clumsy and has wrong answers on occasion. Well, long story short, what we can try (for now, as an experiment): You will be able to ask your questions for developers under this post. I will pick SEVEN (I will let you know which), will translate it to Russian and then, Edrard (who has enough battles on RU server) will post what I write in SerB’s thread. And you’ll get your answers from SerB and Storm directly. If it works and Edrard agrees, we could do this regularily, perhaps even daily. Now, before you get all pen-happy, there will be strict rules and I will ask you to read them and obey them this time, because otherwise it won’t work. Please, read everything below, it’s important. Rules, what you can ask and what you can’t: - don’t ask about buffs and nerfs of any vehicle: even if I translated it and had it posted (which I won’t), the only answer you’d get would be “if necessery”, “your opinion is important to us” and “don’t play that tank”, completely pointless - don’t ask “when will XXX happen” – the only answer you’ll get is ASAP/KTTS (“when it’s done it’s done”) - don’t ask about really old stuff that was answered a million times before: skill MM in randoms, multicore support, hardcore mode and such stuff, on such questions SerB answers always “read previous answers” - don’t ask about clanwars in particular, SerB and Storm do not develop those and won’t answers - don’t ask about regional stuff, such as events, developers have nothing to do with those. - and please please please, don’t ask dumb stuff, such as “will there be Abrams in game” Please be aware, that these rules are not only for you, they are for me too: if you adhere by them, I won’t have to dig thru garbage to find interesting answers, it will be a complete waste of my time and I simply won’t be doing this. The rules above are not based on my whim, but on nearly a year of translating that very thread and on rules posted by SerB in first post of his thread. Please also note that while this sounds easy, this is actually a very time consuming operation, especially since it will not replace the original QA, I will keep on translating, so you know which way the developers are thinking. If it’s too requiring, I dump it. Important: at some point (when I gather the 7 questions), I will lock the comments. If there are more than 7 good questions, I will pick 7 and discard the rest: if there is a second issue of this, you’ll have to ask the same question there again. Sorry, I have to do this, otherwise we’ll get swamped in “that was a question from previous issue”. Let’s see how it works. PS: I’d ask you NOT to discuss anything under this post – just post your questions. If someone asks something blatantly stupid, you can answer him, but please, no long threads. For me it is all about time management, I fully expect this thing to add one hour per day to the time required to keep this blog, so don’t make me regret the time spent on it. Thank you.
