1.45.10.x - Specific PS4 Addition

1.45.10.x - fixes some but not all the crashes 'when flying aircraft in Tank AB' specific to PS4 - Developers do know about the issue and are working on a fix.

 

Since Sony is on holiday, unfortunately we can't  make any updates right now, it can't be released before mid-January.

 

For now, we have to disable Aircraft in Tank Arcade Battles.

 

We are really sorry for the inconvenience unfortunately our solutions are limited right now.

Having played some arcade tank battles over the last week, I'm actually happy to hear that planes will be removed for a while. The bombers stay in the air way too long plus they can see and bomb you when you are sneaking around the flanks otherwise undetected. Plus the moronic kamikaze fighters get old fast.

I'm totally okay with removing the aircraft altogether from AB Tanks.  It kind of defeats the purpose of using tanks, honestly.  Especially when you get suicide-bombed right out of your spawn by someone still sitting in their own tank spawn.  Given we now only have 3 spawns allowed now anyway, it was really an annoying aspect of these battles since the beginning of it being implemented, since 1 or 2 of your deaths are usually by a cheap suicide-attack.  

 

I hope this means PC won't be able to "abuse" this ability for the time being against the disabled-PS4-community and throw us right out of the matches from the start.  Otherwise I may have to stop playing this mode until (supposedly) mid-January, which is really unfortunate given that the whole point of this timeframe is the implementation/testing of USA Tanks.

 

On the other hand, I can't even play the game at ALL right now due to Sony struggling to even fix their own network.  I guess there are always worse problems at hand...

 

Thank you guys for at least responding to us and attempting to fix the issue - it means a lot to us!

Would have been better if they kept air battles activated and run the risk of crashing.
The disadvantage to ps4 GF players now is night and day.
No warning of impending bombers/attackers strikes. No chance to defend yourself. Hearing the bomb whistle and knowing your time is up.

I agree, only instead of keeping it active for us they should have just removed it for PC as well to level the playing field.  The worst is like you said - absolute NO warning of Air Battles starting anymore!  The state of this mode for PS4 players right now is probably the worst it has ever been thus far.  I would be totally fine reverting to the original Arcade Tanks that had existed in 1.41 - with 5 spawns for everyone and no Air Battles for anyone.  It's much better than having PC players just bomb us right out of the match every game, especially given that we only have 3 spawns max now... it's the worst timing given that USA tanks just came out for testing to be done and on PS4 it won't ever be done effectively.

Point made. Remove it until it is fixed.

 

Not only does the lack of warning mean that my tanks die as much or more from being bombed (at least once each match) as by tank (which usually means I've been flanked or rolled into a tank that never showed up on the mini-map), but I can't hop in a plane and get after the bomber; in fact, no one can. Previously, when we had "air battle starting," we had an opportunity to be proactive...even if we were spawned with an escort fighter right out six.

 

Bombing defenseless tanks with planes is a game-changer. In fact, it can swing a tank match decisively in favor of the team that gets the bombers, whether they're in the driver's seat to win (with tanks alone) or not.

 

One more thing to consider. If you're really determined to offer planes, then let tankers jump into an AA vehicle spawn in that way too, or better still add one a spawns that's an automatic, discretionary AA. I know I may take some flak for that comment (no pun intended), but I need to defend my team.

 

Killing tanks with planes should come with inherent risks to the flyer. Otherwise, it's like shootin' fish in a barrel. (Tanks being the fish; gotta love those idioms).

 

 

 

UPDATE: Today (January 2nd), for example I've played five tank matches in AB thus far and died 6 times (yes, six!) by plane bombs (twice in the most recent match) and had a couple of fortunate near misses. Otherwise I've only died three times in those five matches (by other tanks). This is SO FRUSTRATING!!

Hello all, I've been playing WT for over a year on the PS4 but this last week or so the game is constantly freezing.  It seems to only be happening on the new maps.  Yesterday it froze after about 30secs of play but today, every map has froze instantly as soon as i begin to move the tank.  The game is fully up to date and there is no problem with my internet connection or PS4, all other games are running fine.

 

Anyone else having this problem or anyone have any advice on how to fix it?  Its starting to really **** me off....

 

**don't know if this is the right thread or not**

This issue of ground forces randomly freezing for a couple of seconds at the start of the match is a known issue and has been forwarded to the developement team for review.

 

And BTW there is no need to use curse words on this forum. It is a 12yo+ forum and game. Childeren read these threads.

Obviously, I'm well aware of the issue with ground forces freezing for a few seconds, but then the game continues as normal...the problem I'm experiencing is the game/screen completely freezes, and the game has to be turned off and back to PS home screen.

I had same issue during one of the "WWII chronicles" events that occured on the new Eastern Europe map. It was simulator battle event and I was able to play first few games normally, but then the freezing started. What I noticed was, that it was gradually happenning sooner and sooner. So at one game, it froze before the end of the match and in the next game it froze sooner and in another game it was just about a minute after the match started.

 

But I experienced it only during the event, normal arcade matches on this map don't freeze.

Maybe it was related to the SB mode?

 Ok, if you are able please capture a video of this issue and report it in the PS4 bug reports section of the forum.

 

Press the Share button on your PS4 before you press the PS button. Aslo if there is a blue screen error associated with this issue please supply a screenshot of that too.

 

This would be very much appreciated.

 

Cheers
