considering the newest changes and how pourly the second test somewhat performed ( more for the negative feedbacks ).
with that being said, as i wasn’t really planning to interact with this post:
i couldn’t glance over.
as a “”“”“”“proud”“”“”" ( jokingly. to be clear ) biggest volkssturm larper around here, i have mixed feelings.
volkssturm aren’t widely known. those are just units that people are somewhat forced to play due to being tier 1 units and having them from the get go.
as you see in berlin, majority of players do not have volkssturms anymore.
another " thing " is, HA volkssturm is mostly a goal that someone puts them selves in when they feel confident and somewhat experienced. because almost no right minded would " shoot theirselves in the foot " by such equipment against full ppshes, avses, and the whole kaboozle.
and right now, volkssturm ( outside the kriegsmodel rifle and mp3008 ) are mostly in tier III.
which might go on berlin already.
and you can somewhat work around with another teammate much higer than the player.
but, i get that this doesn’t only apply to volkssturm.
with that being said, not sure.
i wouldn’t say no.
but wouldn’t that be the case for custom games?
perhaps i’ll let devs decide.
and as long it’s a button option for those few who wants, sure why not.
We want new players to have an optional acces to high BR. So make some weapons early to unlock and with high BR.
For example most (if not all) volksturm weapons. They are weaker so they should be at the beggining of the tech tree but they belong to berlin so they should have BR5.
Voila, BR5 accesable to new players.
similar to war thunder, except war thunder is much larger. hence has more queues.
but… given that there are literally 3 queues. and 5 tiers, you can do the math.
upgrading your weapons as in researching new ones, and replacing older ones.
that type of upgrading.
not upgrading and improving current weapons.
except, it all comes down because you wanted something like the old system.
which that was roughly the case.
( when you asked to those early/midish brs weapons to be hard locked to berlin with a “warning” )
hence, i’ll admit, it’s rare, but para does have genually a simple yet effective solution about it.
if you want, you click that option. if not, don’t.
From my understanding it means that volksturm weapons will be high BR (probably 5) due to the “historical background”.
So all it takes is to place those weapons early in the tech tree and I believe it’s already the case.
Why you always making everything unneccesary complicated ?
Br 1 and 2 should be able to cycle around all maps and all timelines against other same br players. Nearly all those weapons are pre war designs anyway.
Br 3 and br3 + low tier mixed bag gear should be able to fight in 1942-45 maps against equal opponents
Br 4-5 sent them to normandy and berlin.
Whit this way;
Newbies would be able to see all maps
And sweatlord wpuldnt abuse them.
Seeing kar 98 vs springfield in normandy is not immersion breaking or mosin vs kar 98 in berlin.
But time traveler tiger 2 in stalingard will be a facepalm.
All sides used crap light tanks during the entire war not maybe necceserily for fight at least for recon misssions anyway.
