Wait, did they change the Object 140 somehow?

I sometimes drive Warships too.

Yes. Much better for CW now IMO.

Ooh, nice.I heard that it was rumoured to be nerfed, not buffed. Good to see the tank I got yesterday isn't gonna be nerfed to bits.

Yes and no at the same time. I can't say more but you will see for yourself soon.

Essentially a new map and what looks to be a good one. Great job in the video showing the different regions - this new map looks huge but with intimate little killing zones. Not sure the area in the corner with the mosque above is necessary for anything but hiding but maybe the corners provide for some stealthy, unspotted flanking mid-game. That gully down the middle should have a bit of water here and there to slow down those pesky mediums.

[BRSKT] may or may not be recruiting you.

One thing I haven't seen anyone mention yet was the sheer brilliance that Alex showed with his choice of backing music choice for this video.  It was REALLY hard for me to not mention it during the narration, but I've got to now...it's just perfect.

 

In case you've been living under a rock for the last 2 years or haven't turned on a radio, the song is called "Pompeii", by Bastille.

 

The lyrics in the chorus go:

 

But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all?
And if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like you've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

 

I don't think there's a single song in existence he could have picked to better fit this map preview video.  Hats off to you for that, Alex!

Come with us we'll sail the Seas of Cheese."

Awesome video! I was wondering if you would be able to drive a low tier light tank up the stairs at:

You mean to get up to that building thing? I tried in a leopard, t2 light, and a few other speedy vehicles with adrenaline.... But the only way to do it is with an assist from another driver....

 Good videos guys. But why would they screw the map that much? I'm not impressed. Why not just add a new one instead of screwing with one? It was actually my favorite map. Are they just dumbing them down so that more people can get better scores or what's the deal ?

 

 Of all the maps that needed help this was the last one on the list as far as me and my platoon mates are concerned.  I mean I understand they have to get new people involved but is it just for the newbies is that what they look as far as the statistics? Or is it just arbitrary?

Call me curious ?

If I recall, they said they were going to rework Oasis Palms due to it being the map with the highest % of Draws out of any of the 14 maps.

Any chance a light/fast tank can get up the stairs of that mosque or will it just run into the building.

Alex already answered that earlier in the thread.

So he did. Sorry, no excuse for missing that. One of those "Here, let me read that for you." moments.

So they are dumbing it down basically. Thanks!  But honestly that sucks. I noticed you said 14 maps.  Any chance of those getting to the iPad version? As far as maps go, the one that I have found the by far most people do not like is Fort Despair. Now that one one needs and overhaul. As far a Draws that is a great thing.  It gives people that may have some skill a chance to at least survive when they have a bad team. When that happens and it is down to only one player on one side they should get credited with half a win or at least not get counted as a loss in their WR ratio.  If it comes down to only two players. they both should get half a win.  Would make the game much more interesting and fair I think.

I don't understand your first question.  There are already 14 maps on the iPad/Android/iPod/iPhone version.

 

  1. Black Goldville
  2. Castilla
  3. Copperfield
  4. Dead Rail
  5. Desert Sands
  6. Falls Creek
  7. Fort Despair
  8. Lost Temple
  9. Mines
  10. Middleburg
  11. Oasis Palms
  12. Port Bay
  13. Rockfield
  14. Winter Malinovka

 

As far as the rest of your comment, just no.  Both teams get a win to make it "fair"?  What is this, Little League?  This is battle, my friend.  If you don't earn the win, you don't get a win.  Everyone doesn't get a Participation Award.

Ok my bad on the maps.  For some reason I did not think there were that many. :)  As to your comment about being fair, that is exactly what they are doing by making the map easier by dumbing it down. :)  They are making it easier for the little league. Not sure what their whole audience demo looks like, but they should do some demographic studies.  They could make a whole lot more money if they did.

Take it from someone who has played on the new Oasis Palms: It is not in any way "easier" or "dumbed down".  If anything, battles here will be MUCH more challenging than they are today.

 

Today, teams either go to one of the corners (or both) and snipe most of the game.  It doesn't get a whole lot easier than that.

 

Battles in 2.0 will be a lot more interesting than they are today.

After youv'e played it in 2.0, feel free to come back here and post if you disagree.  This is just my opinion, after all.  I'm not always right. ;)
