    I would really love to see some attention put on a few problems that really effect the game play.

    1 - The first round lag ghost tank bug where people move but the screen doesn't show it till after the first shot. This is a game changer bug. The shooting team is robbed of scoring a hit for an accurate shot and they often lose a very nice weapon as well as making their turn useless. It also effects the other team who often move on top of one another because they thought the tank in front of them wasn't moving and try and pass, only to end up stacked on the tank(s) ahead of them.

    2 - Sitters who troll by skipping 2 turns and not firing until the countdown is almost finished on their 3rd turn. Then they sit 2 more turns and do it again. Can we make it a total of 3 missed shots instead of just 3 in a row? Or better yet, make it 2 shots. Sitting through 2 countdowns is just boring. Obviously they are trolling, have no real interest in playing and don't care of the inconvenience they place on other players while they scan through other tabs or windows, or are having connection problems that are just dragging the game down.

    2.1 - I know its random, but it seems to me that when someone sits and other players get fed up and leave the game tends to put control of the sub to the sitter. Just make it that if someone skips a turn then the sub's control changes to the other player if they are still alive.

    3 - When the host leaves the game it often places the last person to enter the room into host position. More often than not that disrupts or destroys a room because either they are too inexperienced to host properly, are not someone that fits the room's restrictions (the level limit setting doesn't work btw), or someone who changes the game settings and ruins a good game. The new host position should go to the next person who's been in the room the longest. They would be more inclined to maintain the game's settings and restrictions. If that doesn't work then maybe assign it to the highest ranking player? That would at least eliminate giving it to players that are too inexperienced to host.

    4 - Quitter penalties. The current penalty just doesn't offer any encouragement for people to stick it out. I get that some people really have to leave or suffer a disconnect, so make it a progressive penalty system. The more you quit the more you are penalized. After a period of time the quit counter can reset or decreased. The penalty can be experience, or maybe just having a mouse-over in the lobby to see how many times the person has quit a game in the last 24 hours. Being able to see how often someone quits would at least offer the host an option to prune out undependable players.

    Just my thoughts on the parts of the game that are suffering.

    I think the most frustrating bug right now is when people press the quick join button to enter your room when the settings are set to private match, or when you have a certain level requirement and people, who are not in that level range, use the quick join button to join.

    I'd vote for XP too...seeing that achieving new Prestige levels is very challenging.

    Well kChamp.. Although I don't like that seagull has been nerfed I can understand that this update is good for other people who don't have the packs.
    I appreciate the time you spend in this game. Keep up the good work, please! ^-^

    :| all player unlock wp pack 3 for seagull
    i want 80 coin for wp pack 3 ،now i hate the seagull and wp pack 3 :|
    I think you could change it other something.
    For example
    Deathmatch start 100-200-300-400-500-600 or Reduce seagull point or ban shot seagull in shield or x-randomness in 90 degree
    And some suggestions for you​
    1.why no add new theme or tank ، custom tanks(create custom tanks) and new maps(You can select the best custom maps from all players );
    theme and tank.jpg
    2.no Filter For Deathmatch Game;
    filter.jpg
    3.why no bug fixes for invite only game or limit range of player levels ، only you hide this room for all but he click in Quickjoin and join in invite only room(Reform Quickjoin and 1v1-2v2-3v3 for this bug)
    4.add black list for each room
    5.send a message for offline user
    and finish :D
    Regards,
    Mortaza

    I think the daily rewards should go like this.
    Sign in 1 day. 100 Xp
    Sign in the next day, 200 Xp
    Sign in next day, 500 Xp (Maybe)
    Sign in next day, 1 TC
    Sign in next day, 1 TC
    Sign in next day, 1 TC and 100 XP
    Sign in next day, 1 TC and 250 XP
    Sign in next day, 1 TC, and 450 Xp
    Sign in next day, 2 TCs. and etc. See where I am going?

    Btw, seagull is terrible now. Here's what I did with stacking, and shield...

    That makes it sound like you can get rich if you just log in every day, the count should just go up to the 7th day.

    Ya, ok. how about, you get 5 tank coins if you sign in 7 days in a row. That's reasonable.

    You could add that you have to earn 300xp everyday to get coins.

    I have to agree about the seagull nerfing. Being constantly creamed when it was used on me I spent the better part of a year saving up coins to get that weapons pack specifically for the seagull only to have it nerfed so completely 2 weeks after spending my hard earned coins for it. If it did too much damage from a 90 degree shot and shields then the better solution would have been just to reduce the damage amount. There are many weapons that have the exact same effect of focusing damage when fired at 90 or 91/89 degree angle on another player so I cannot fathom how changing how the seagull released its bombs was considered a good fix.

    I don't think there was anything wrong with Seagull. I liked it for what it was. I haven't had a chance to use it since the revision, but, I'll have to check it out and see what all the hoopla is about.

    stuff like this could be easily abused

    It should be based on amount played each day, like the amount of time you spend in a game, not the amount of times you logged in.

    How can it get abused? You get one reward per day and if you don't log in it resets. It also resets at 7 days. I don't see how it can be abused...
