Damnit, if our Jagdpanther wouldn't have gone #yolo in the other direction we could've won this so easily <.<

Some more screenshots, HBs are fun, but can be a bit annoying when you get a random "special" person in your team like the above mentioned Jagdpanther.

HD models and graphic updates... are visible and look awesome, but not as awesome as I expected.

Well, my main computer is in repair at the moment and I'm using my old pc that can only go up to high and not max, plus of course

I'm a bit pre-damaged when it comes to awesome HD graphics from That_Other_Game.

 

New Pzkpfw IV Ausf. H feels better mobility wise than the old Pzkpfw IV.

couldn't test any of the other tanks, since they aren't available in HBs and the overall population is still low.

 

Currently only the two RU vs GER maps are available, Erlenberg and Prokhorovka.

Both maps seem rather balanced, but I only played a rough 5 games.

The outcome mostly depends on how good your team is... more so than in random battles.

If 4 T-34/85s just yolo rush into the 3(!) enemy tanks and leave the other tanks alone then it will probably be a loss... ...

 

Anyway, it's 0300 and I'm tired, have some screenshots while I do this thing with closed eyes while I'm drooling.

Wow they actually look like real tanks! All grown up from their 4 bit brothers.

 

While maybe not quite as good as WT from what I've seen, definitely a big improvement to what the models are now.

Nice graphics guys.

Sure can.  In fact, there are not enough players at this time to get in a decent amount of battles.  Have, on average, a 3 minute wait and end up with half teams.  That is for both, the Historical AND the random battles.

It's a bit early to get decent results in the new, Historical mode.  I have found that there are not enough players at this time.  I have timed-out waiting for battles and every one of about 7 that I have played have had a majority of 5 per side, some down to 3 on one side and 5 on the other.

 

Until we get more people playing, it will be hard to assess the new mode properly.

That hasnt been implemented yet, for whatever reason :sceptic:

Coming in with the 9.1/2 Havoc patch I think.

No, your account has been automatically copied over to the testserver.

You can just download the client, install it and then log in.

 

However keep the following in mind:

- The testserver is in russia, expect a ping according to your distance to the server

- The testserver is often full, because only a certain amount of players can log in at the same time

- Whatever you achieve/unlock on the testserver stays there

- You will get enough credits/gold/exp for whatever you want to test

First you have to download and install the Public Test 9.0 client http://worldoftanks.asia/en/news/23/public-test-historical-battle-mode/ (7GB-ish), log on with you IGN, and play.

 

There may be a long queue to be able to logon though when the RU and EU are awake and playing.
