CA and WG said that OBT would be the last Wipe, as after that it will be like other Wargaming titles like WoT or WoW where OBT will continue into Release without interruption.

Same i didn't play much at the start of the CBT because of that + the lack of gold this time it's quite hard to motivate yourself to level something that will be wiped again.

At least this time we have confirmation that it will be the last.

Same here. I have no issue with grinding, but when I know that everything will we wiped I lose all motivation to play.

Personally, while it can be frustrating to experience wipe after wipe, knowing that one is coming is actually quite liberating (IMO).

 

This means I can simply play the game, at whatever Tier I have/end up with, and enjoy it or focus on other, more important things, like:

 

Bug reporting.

Balance issues.

UI glitches.

 

etc, etc,

 

But hey, that's just me.

:hiding:


...When ten to the enemy’s one, surround him;

...When five times his strength, attack him;

...If double his strength, divide him;
...If equally matched you may engage him;
...If weaker numerically, be capable of withdrawing;
...And if in all respects unequal, be capable of eluding him,
...for a small force is but booty for one more powerful."

we need more factions. they can add persians and carthage with units in them from egypt and iberia too. also persians can have scythian units too. I have played steam beta too for months,and i think we dont need that many tiers,we could have less tiers and more factions,so from the units they would remove with the tiers,they could easily create a new faction. also with less tiers matchmaking would be easier and faster. in high tiers there are not that many players,because players have to spend too many hours to reach high tiers with many generals. Also hoplites after tier 4 feel useless,romans can beat them very fast,romans are too op .too strong after 5 tier,there is no match for them in open area,steam beta players would understand for sure.

No we don't need more fractions...

WE NEED OPEN BETA FOR EVERYONE WITHOUT A WIPE.

 

Then they will have all the time in the world to implement changes.

If they go OB soon enough it means the game is ready, for no more wipe means you can't change much things orelse some players will be spoiled before others : the grind is too massive for people to change their mind after T5 without rage quitting the game, which means factions have to be consistent and balanced from top to bottom, but they currently definitely aren't.

If the game goes open, we old players wont have to [edited] your T5 units with our T4 units on commanders T9, just wipe, open the game, start playing, and if you keep on loosing, change commander, find your gameplay.

 

Because there is noone to play on high ranks, all people quit coz we fight all the same faces every battle.

 

LET THE GAME LOOSE....

 

WG and CA you will kill the game with time and stupidity, you dont really understand the mind behind gamers... And you try hard to make a game for them, but eventually all will leave coz you dont have a release date and people go on and on...And they will find another game to kill time, coz this game kills itself by constant wipes so all will leave...

GG.

I feel your eager impatience but imo the game is absolutely not ready for OB because devs did not even set their mind on their game or refuse to see the reality of the market: this is not WoT or For Honor, this is a team oriented RTT not a team oriented TPS. I remember having had such debate back in 2016 but looks like devs are too stubborn to deal with the obvious. They started this with a consistent antic time period supported with TOTAL WAR models as realistic kind of gameplay to make a team oriented multiplayer arena game, thus quite a demanding playerbase about pitch for a highly competitive market, they will have very hard time to get out of this without losing a significant amount of their playerbase.

 

I'd have no issue with OB if wargaming was offering at least one respec a player : meaning an entire faction as associated commanders progress are lost but used xp as silver are recovered to be spent in another faction as commanders, as the same if they change a faction too much after a major update for example, but I very highly doubt they will.

 

The game still suffers many severe balance issues between players (T10 commanders with T1 units, really ?) factions, commanders, units, unit tiers... and the xp wall is massive upto T10, this is too much for a competitive game. Not to mention consistency if not plain point of barbarians addition but marketing sake : I forsee unending barbarians players rage to descend upon forum mere a few weeks after OB, followed with as expeditive as punitive backlash for the game.

 

Thankfully they left steam...

 

Just my 2 cents.

Just going to repost something I posted on the TWA subreddit:

 

Block Quote

 (...) we're not yet ready to announce the end of closed beta/transition into open beta.

I went back and looked at some of the previous communication and the verbiage they used was along the lines of: "the first closed beta test will last at least 8 weeks". This is understandably unclear and could be confusing if you're not looking for nuance in statements.

To be crystal clear: We are currently planning on Closed Beta lasting at least through the new year. At this point, we believe that there are some new features we're going to be adding over the next few months that would benefit from closed beta testing and that should be in the game prior to moving into open beta.

In today's day and age, expectations around a title in open beta are very different than a game in closed beta, so it's on us as responsible developers and publishers to make certain that we're managing said expectations in a thoughtful manner.

That being said, we will be running some weekend events to open the game up to a broader audience, so please keep an eye out for those announcements.

TLDR: We didn't want to announce that we're not ready to announce anything ;).
