Still downloading the update, slowly, ... 

 

Some of the bug fixes and improvements are probably great.


Things I looked forward to the most:

 

- no more failtoons

- bug fixes & no more crashes ( AFK/AWOL)
- Trial By Fire tutorial map

- friends / chat / ... improvements

 

Have not yet heard failtoons is fixed. Is it???

Have seen 1.8.0 on Android crash in the middle of combat, live on 360's twitch stream. So clearly more work to be done. 

From the video the old tutorial does not look improved of changed as substantially as it should've been changed.

 

Then on top of that I hear (from android users) that the tutorial area is completely invisible / locked out for regular users?!  I use the tutorial real quick, when there's lag or the light in the garage flips between yellow & red, to check on the server PING! Without having to enter a live battle to find out I can't really play. Disappointed by that decision to say the least.  

No fixes for friends list. Game more complicated with missions ... :-/

I am now getting the message "Error: please reinstall client." I tried reinstalling it but get the same error. What gives? So far I have not been able to play a single game since the 1.8 patch. This is an issue.

Hopefully you're back in the game by now.   I had this issue on one of my devices too.   I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it from scratch.   Took awhile, but it worked.

I like the missions.   Trying to force some missions into some battle scenarios will be detrimental to your team.   If the battle isn't progressing in line with your mission,  be patient and help your team win,  try your mission in the next battle.

Haven't tried the tutorial yet.  

Favorite thing is we have a few cheap tablets that would kick us out of the app once a platoon battle started., very disappointing.   Well,  now post update,  we can platoon together.  
Didn't see anything in the fixes list that explains why,  but very happy about it.

PS: Still no fix for the silly support bubble bug. Every time it keeps (#) up there as if there's something going, but I have no open tickets!  How many more months with fake support alerts????

Rumor has it that credit earning has gone down for several premium tanks... maybe ALL?   Just a rumor at this point.

 

I find it interesting that the official patch notes don't always tell the full story.  For instance, If/when CptCheez compiles his updated guns spreadsheet... it will be interesting to see if other numbers have been changed? 

 

There could be some hidden nerfs and buffs in this release,  but we may just have to wait and see.

 

S.S.

 

 


P.S. I'm not a stripper... Lol.

 This was one of the main uses for the tutorial for me, let me check lag on the ipad and nexus, let me check frame rate on the android system if I was on a lollipop build without risking a game, would very much like to see it back. 

 

Hugely concerned on premium credit earning, don't care about the stock tanks, they are owned by WG, I'm just driving em (badly these days!) but the premie's are MINE!

No "if"s about it, just haven't had time to do it yet.  Will try to this weekend.

Yes, that will be checked as well.

Stats on the T82's guns have not changed at all, sorry.  Everything on it is exactly the same as it was before 1.8.

 

Now I don't want to sound like a WG apologist or anything, but I do have good news: I just finished going through and did not find any "stealth" changes to any tank guns that were not listed here in the Official Patch Notes.

A stealth fix:  The Wolverine can now buy the Hellcat, just as it can in the PC version.
