Hello everyone,

Just realized this is my first topic in a while, hope this was worth the wait :)

 


I present to you, my master spreadsheet, documenting every buff and nerf to every tank tier 6-10, dating all the way back to the very first balance changes in Update 1.1.1 (that's over 6 years ago!)

https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing

 

Been working on this project for about a month and a half. This stemmed from my own curiosity, didn't see anything out there that would let me see how different tanks have been buffed and nerfed over the years. So, thanks to blitzhangar, I manually went through every update so some other unfortunate soul wouldn't have to. When blitzhangar failed me (4.10) I went to wotblitz.com. A lot less detail here but still lists most changes. That will take you all the way back to 4.1.

 

Please read the Notes sheet first, it should answer most of your questions. Formatting is still a bit rough but it should be readable at least. If you have any feedback at all, please let me know, either here or by leaving a comment directly on the document.

 


 

As for future updates to the document, here is what I will be doing:

-Consistently keeping up to date with newest updates

-Reworking formatting

-Checking grammar and general readability


And after that it is all up in the air. Would you guys like to see:

-more specific buff/nerf indication (possibly color-coded)

-association with WG balance charts Done

-low tier vehicles included
-condensed info for specific tanks Done

-separate sheet dedicated to special consumables? List each type, their function, and what tanks they are available on. Done
-anything else?

 

Let me know. 

 


 

If you are interested in this kind of project, please hop in my Discord server to see all my work and chat with some like-minded people.

Hopefully my work will end up helping some of you out, I have got great satisfaction from referring to it a few times already.

 

Cheers,

Interesting -- It's even more funny when you tie it to the balance results that WG publishes.

Major tip of the hat :honoring:

 

Having looked at some of the game's details and tried to keep track, present things visually, ... I can imagine what it took to get this far.

Thank you :medal:

 

Motivation was purely selfish at first, I couldn't find any solution for this besides combing through blitzhangar patch notes one by one. Then I realized that this could be a real resource for the community. I contacted Alexander from BlitzHangar, who said he had looked into such a feature but never really started work on it. CK_GoldenNuggets provided me with a fine template and from there it was just manual data entry. 

 

And thanks for your kind words everyone, glad you enjoy it. Working on an update that will add WG balance charts for reference. Also "froze" the headings thanks to a helpful comment.

Bump and update.

 

Added an update log in the Notes section, please check that out to keep up to date with the newest changes. I made sure to take heed of Cru6’s words.

 

Also, great news! SockRobber (the mastermind of BlitzStars) was kind enough to add my work to his Community section! Very cool :ohmy:

Per NMH's request, the introduction of special provisions and consumables was noted. Will work on adding more balance charts later today.

 

Thanks for the pin!

Impressive stuff mate, +1.

 

Maybe you could add marks for when tanks were released into the game?

Did that for tech tree tanks, * shows when they were put into testing (if applicable) and another * for when they entered the game. I only have the former for premium tanks, trying to find a solid source to include when they were first sold.

Began entries showing when premiums and collectors were first introduced into the game, indicated with * followed by the date. Completed Tier 10.

Also fixed a few errors and noted the addition of super consumables to the E3 line.
