- I support the removal/replacement of the consultant and staff working on France
- I disagree with that
Welcome to our (French Tech Tree Discord) feedback about the work of our nations consultant.
Before you continue to read please note that this is purely for France and not representative for other nations so please keep your concerns out of the comments. If you’re unhappy with the work of any other nations work please make your own post.
Now with that out of the way let’s go have a look further into the so called “work” with a few examples.
First off we have been working endlessly on reporting each and every wrong thing on french vehicles from tanks, vehicles and ships. Most of the reports can be proven wrong in a matter of not even half an hour with unclassified documents found all over the internet. All of them stating the same values on the exact same matter with no space for misunderstandings. A lot of our reports and suggestions for change have been put aside due to often conflicting with existing “documents” from the so called “expert” that is called the french consultant.
And no this post is not against the person itself but against the work they did.
My first example is the most recent one: VAB SANTAL
Not only is the model that was first added the wrong chassis but also a mockup turret without any function. After calling it out it got changed to be a completely made up vehicle as a mix match which has working and not working pieces put together to make it look like it’s complete. TLDR the vehicle got corrected wrong yet again afterwards.
Second example are the different AMX 50 (varying in errors) with a few of the reports below
While you might think a few issues are normal: All of these reports have been made with documents that had already been declassified by the time the french tech tree has been added to the game.
Another example can be the AMX-13
And many others. These would be fairly easy to change but conflicts with documents from whatever source the consultant uses conflict with ours which some even are first hand.
This is a similar issue found on Leclerc missing 25HP. This is just a single number in the code to fix it yet took a little over half a year and will finally be implimented with the upcoming patch.
Most of these issue should NOT have happened to an expert researching on their assigned nation when a smaller community of players can do better work in their free time than someone doing it as their full-time job.
As this topic goes public there will surely be many more reports coming in with more sources and examples.
This has gone on for long enough and things need to change.
Kind regards and vive la France
