Most of us have had thoughts on what we'd like to see done to the game to improve it. Here's a thread to collect and discuss all of them.
Here are two of mine below:
1) Overhaul the chat system - Turn off chat in normal pub games and allow it to be used to talk to your team only in company battles and Clan Wars.
In pub games most chat is just vitriol to begin with. What good does it serve to allow that to go on? Even seemingly harmless discussion takes away from players' focus on the actual game. How many times do we see a game start and someone asks another player whether they like their tank or not? There's a place for discussions like that - the forums. When in a game players need to be focused on the game. Time spent typing is time not spent watching the minimap, moving, aiming, etc.
2) Add a combat log, if not this add an after-kill screen to show how a player died.
For whatever reasons, which are completely beyond my comprehension, WG aims to keep players in the dark about how their game works. While that's a whole discussion of its own, the focus here is the total lack of information on how a player takes damage. Lots of games have combat logs which display everything that happens. A player can see it in real time as the game goes on or scroll back later to answer a question.
If WG won't do this, then copy an after-kill screen from games like LoL. In LoL, after your champion dies, you get a button on your screen. If you press it it details all the damage you took in a certain amount of time leading up to your death.
Doing this serves a few functions. First, it stops those players from screaming 'cheater' and other ridiculous things (which only show how idiotic they are and clueless as to how the game works). Second, it's some information where we currently have none which can only help players get better. If players don't understand how the game works how do you expect them to get better?
