So I haven’t been around here.....in a long time, most of my friends were around with me back in 2014-15 and they haven’t logged a game in years.

 

how’s everything been? Has the game changed in any big way? I’m curious.

Anti tank missiles on the Sheridan and T92E1 at tier 10 and 9, respectively. Op Smasher at tier 7. I don’t know exactly how long you’ve been away, but there have been a Chinese line, a British light tank line, and the Italian auto reloading tanks (function like a French auto loader but can top off it’s clip again when not firing. All have a 3 shot clip, so if you fire twice, the tank reloads the other two of you don’t fire the third. So you can fits the whole clip, or two shots at a time, or one shot. The drawback is that the more shells you fire out of your clip, the less dpm you have. So you have more dpm when you fire one shots only, than when you fire the whole clip. Hope that makes sense to you. They end up being very versatile meds in the right hands.) So if you could tells us when you left we’d be able to tell you all the stuff you missed.

Maybe do a quick search for update 3.8, update 5.5 and ATGM 

That should cover things pretty well.

Everything's been great!  We haven't had a complaining thread since 2017....

 

If a person feels powerless or insignificant in their life, the easiest way to achieve power is to make other people angry; every internet troll has known this since 1993 and every toddler has known it since the dawn of time.

- Update 3.8; I don't know a whole lot about this update due to the fact that I wasn't actually there then, but it seems like a terrible update looking at PC equipment system

- Update 5.5; WG basically destroyed everything below tier 5 and nerfed them to the ground

- ATGMs; aka artillery in Blitz in the form of T92E1 and XM551 Sheridan

- European line; a mix of Finnish, Polish, Swedish, and Italian tanks

- Autoreloading mechanic as explained by generalhonks

- Japanese TDs; Ho-Ri Type I-III

- Yukon, New Bay, lots of new maps

- Kranvagn is coming soon; will branch off after Strv m/42

- Thunder Battlepass event happened a while ago and we're getting a new Battlepass with the Eraser BP44, a new tank based off the ARL 44

- AMX M4 54 to come soon, but most likely as a collector...

There have been lots and lots of balance changes over the years as the game has grown and progressed. Lots of tanks may feel different in combat than you remember. Overall, thankfully, the basic concept of strategic tanking fun is still the same! Also I don't think controls have changed much. Welcome back! :)

Edited by Markus_The0, 12 August 2020 - 07:09 PM.

It's not the RNG, the MM, the diameter of your shell, the thickness of your armor, or the number of premium rounds you carry that counts ultimately; it's the courage in your heart, the calmness in your mind, the hope and faith you have in your team, and the way you use what's at your disposal that truly determines Victory.

You guys all forgot about the sh!tbarn.

 

 

Instead of the 183mm derp you are familiar in WOT or WT, it gets a autoloading 130mm.

It's funny; the one on PC is the Stage II, while the one on Blitz is the Stage I. In real life the FV4005 Stage I had a three shot autoloading 183 millimeter gun. Just imagine that.
