​Greetings fellow community members,

 

​as for this subject regarding Tanktastic, in one of the Developer Q&A's we were told that updates after V2.0 would be more frequent. They kept their words and after the V2.0 update we've seen some updates without a two-year waiting time. Nonetheless, I feel like that this game needs more updates more frequently to keep the game fresh. Therefore, I came up with what I call a "Monthly Update" system that isn't too much work for the developers. I'll walk you through the ideas I had in mind to give you an impression and idea of what this "Monthly Update" system would contain.

 

The first thing that came up in me was that vehicles can be balanced more frequently. With the current version of the game certain tanks are significantly more powerful than others at their tiers. Although G.H.O.R. Coopeartion does balance those vehicles sooner or later, there always will be some vehicles that stay or become more powerful than others. A solution to this is top update the game and the tank balances regularly. This, as you might expect, fits into the monthly update system quite well. Every month, the so-called overpowered tanks will be nerfed etc etc. 

 

The second thing that crossed my mind is that Tanktastic needs more content to be added to keep the game fresh. The developers are constantly working on that, of course, but these new additions to the game most of the time only come after some months. Tanktastic needs more content more frequently and with "content" one could think of tanks etc. What I had in mind is that every month, the Tanktastic Community (or Staff) submits three (3) to five (5) camouflages on which the community members can vote to be added into the game. That means that every month, along with the tank balances, a new camouflage is added. Content such as tanks that require more time can be added every three months, and so on.

 

The last and probably my favourite idea is a monthly "order" system. What I mean with that is that every motnh new missions/orders are given to every player. These obviously are the same for everyone and with the monthly update system these are refreshed every month. For example, with every monthly update five (5) new orders are given and the orders from the previous update are removed. To make you understand what I mean better I have composed a small example of five (5) orders:

  • Capture 50 flags in the Capture the flag game mode - reward: 50 gold
  • Destroy 20 helicopters - reward: 30 gold
  • Win 10 deathmatches - reward: 50 gold
  • Capture 25 points in the control points game mode - reward: 50 gold
  • Disable 15 enemy weapons - reward: 30 gold

As you might have read, I included a reward for completeing the orders. That means that with this monthly update system there also is an option to get some gold by playing the game. 

 

Well, that was my idea for a monthly update system, I hope you like it. I'll add a poll to see what everyone thinks of it and you may comment as well. Feel free to ask any questions or add your own ideas. 

 

Kind regards,

Dave

Positive feedback:
In theory, I like all of your proposal.
Smaller, more regular updates, update issues should also be more manageable to fix.

Negative feedback:
Monthly?, very optimistic.

Question:
How would 'order' achievements be recorded.

If I do not answer straight away, please pick one of my standard responses listed below - mood dependent. <p>Realistic: Adapt your expectations, reality may surprise you. Cautionary: You always have a choice. Unsympathetic: Better you than me.

Thank you for the feedback! I know that the devlopers are only a small team but once the necessary code is written you can easily adjust it. Also, camouflages are not too much of an effort either. A month is quite some time. It is for the benefit of both the game and developers.

 

The "order" achievements work like the statistics of your profile.

Idea about monthly balance updates is very good, another - have no sense.
Bother with camouflage, instead of creating new models of tanks and maps? You really need?
Order system already was offered more than once and developers probably have long known about this propose.
