So your maps are fundamentally broken, and you have spammed them with bushes ontop of this, to cater to casuals again that do not want to think but want the game to assimilate to their no brain gameplay.
But even tho all of your assault maps are non-functional and restricting gameplay, you could still improve them by adding in the destroyed vehicle, tank, plane models as static hardcover. These assets are not locked to any map type, and don't consume much fps.
And oh look the people that care about your game support the addition of hardcover!
But even tho the solutions are at your feet, you dont do anything, but close your ears to the community and let the anger boil and boil in your consumers.
That you have scammed with false advertisement too many times during the past.
But lets go further.
You have introduced a ninja change into Staged resources about a half a year ago, that completelly broke attacker, defender balance. You made that one attacker line out of the 2 does not have APC, recon and heavy tanks resources available.
Because you apparently think that it is balance, if the defender team floods the one attacker line with no apc and heavy tank resources with, these same exact things! How should this line defend against enemy APC spam and Heavy tanks?
Lets just create a theoretical scenario, where the attackers are Soviets and the defenders are German. Do i have to say more? Because i think every person that plays this game knows what will happen when the STG spamming GE staged team floods this no APC, no heavy tank attacker line with their armored and well protected APC's and their Tigers.
The fact that this is tolerated by the devs is outrageous!
And you are adding more AT riles, while there are no functioning bipods in game, and you, despite years of work in the game industry, are unable to make one god damn gun into a functional long-mid distance anti-tank rifle.
I have played this game for 3 years and without any previous experience in game development, i know how to solve these issue. So i doubt that you dont know how to solve these issue. at least i hope that, this is not the case here)
While we are at the topic of new AT weapons. Can we have a moment and ask the question, that why are you adding an already not functional buccaneer cannon to SU as an AT weapon, when none of the ranged AT weapons in the planned SU AT tech tree go near the max penetration capabilities of the planned German ranged AT weapons?
Why are you adding non-functional obsolete weapons to SU, when SU is missing its tier 2 LMG and paratrooper automatic lmg? Besides the lack of any well armored SU tanks that makes the SU tank tech tree the worst by miles?
Your priorities do not in align with what the games current status demands. And u are adding useless sht.
160mm GE vs 101mm US vs 93mm SU max pen ? really?
So the fact is Reto, that you as a company do not deserve the trust, money and the time of your consumers. You have failed at game development, even tho every tool to make the game work was at your hands, and you did manage to fix the armor and anti-armor gameplay. For 3 days. Than you chickened out and effectively reverted the unfinished update.
Everything was in your favor. During Christmas, the player count was up in the thousands. And when your dead game is flooded with new players what do you do? You go on a holiday and dont give a fug about the MM being broken and never-ending queues.
You should have ordered everyone back into the office, to solve the server and MM issues, you should have been active on the forum communicating to your frustrated players and capitalizing on this God-given influx of new players......
But i forget, this is Reto and Reto does not save their company!
I have given up on this company! You are lazy, irresponsible. You dont care about your consumers and you belittle them. You dont communicate and you make very logically questionable decisions again and again despite seeing that your logically questionable decisions are driving the game towards the Grand Canyon.
HnG could have been the ultimate ww2 game despite the shirty engine and terrible maps. But because of you Reto, it won't be. We thought that Reto has learned from his past mistakes, from the 2017 casual arcade player targetting policy and pocket pistols, but they have not.
You are doing the same with this Amor 2.0 as what you did with the old spawn system. Scrapping an easily fixable system and redesigning it again and again, but it keeps getting worse and worse.
You know what you should do to fix this broken post hotfix armor 2.0 that everybody hates? Revert the changes you made in the first hotfix and go through with the original plan for Armor 2.0..etc.
I will add below the list of changes you should do to fix this shitstorm you created with chickening out on this update.
And if we are at it:
Do what you set out to do with Armor 2.0 ! Stick to the plan cause it works! And it works the best.
Stop lying to and avoiding your consumer! Do you want to save your company? Make people trust you!
What you have been doing is pathetic!
This is all i could come up with now, forgive me for this not being a well-written essay.
And forgive me for wasting your time.
Here are a few other very insightful constructive feedbacks:
