So with the implementation of 1.0 and the new year, I've taken it upon myself to try and learn tanks again.

 

Anything I should know going back into the game after a long time? It seems like a lot has changed, and I can't really figure out what the current meta is.

From a limited amount of game time, it seems like the changes to the old maps, and the new maps, favour close combat and tanks with rof/dpm over alpha.

Also, is armour relevant again?

Plz help.

 

Btw, the new graphics look very flash indeed. Most impressed.

Why not both?

 

The only thing that hasn't changed seems to be the sea of red I get when I enter a game. Higher tiers seem to ween that out tho.

There's stacks of new* tanks I'll never be able to name.

268 4 - new russian TD. Ivan's greatest balans yet. Only marginally OP*.

 

*Might be blatantly OP.

The best way to rekickstart your tanking would be to buy a Defender.

the meta may have changed, but i disagree that you need to fire gold to play the game, you dont really need to do that, firing gold does not garantee that you gonna win, its just a situational thing, and that situation can be controlled by you. You can play big heavies too because they are easy to get good win ratios (if thats what u looking for), but everything depends which tier you want to play and your type of play style you have, the french and american MTs have good standard pen, i dont get the joke people saying its all about firing gold, sure tier 8 is kinda broke depending which tank you choose to play, but just avoid using tier 8 tanks and gold Its not really necessary to play the game. There are alot of new tanks and some crazy pen TDs if you like then choose a class that fits your play style and go!

 

There are some tanks with very good pen without gold btw, T30 has amazing pen so zero gold required, e4 too (just bought mine yesterday to use in ranked in a nearby future), sheridan has crazy pen for a light tank, t57 heavy have 258mm pen, my god if thats not enough to pen 88% of all tanks that it can meet in MM then i dont know what a good pen is. Also follow your heart sometimes, and by heart i mean dont get angry with the game and quit again, because its all about adapting and trying your best.

Due to match maker making players bottom tier more often and top tier less often.  The game has become even more PTW than it used to be.

You can really only play t10s on the ANZ server. Queue times for t8 time out half the time for me even during peak. Forget about lower tiers, just not happening.

In a bid to actually make armour worthwhile again, they introduced the 268 4.

Even 330mm HEAT gets problems.

Imagine other shells.

Yeah, 268 4 probably on par with Defender or something :)

Nah, its worse. Its a Defender with medium tank mobility that same tier tanks will have trouble penning even the LFP. 

 

Balanced though. Its able to stand on one leg.

You WoT m8? I never time out playing a tier 8 tank. I have at tier 10 occasionally. 

 

Tier 7 and 9 are fine too I don’t often play tier 6 and 5 because MM being bottom tier and also my grinds are mostly 7+, but when I occasionally do I have got a game without trouble. I don’t platoon hardly at all so that may make it harder.

if the 268 4 is not hulldown you can calmly and easily pen it with around 250-260mm pen frontally, i guarantee :great:

 

i saw QB saying on youtube review that its "impossible" to pen it frontally (with standard ammo), i learned not to trust 100% QB tips long ago. But i still watch his coz it makes such good videos

What you've described is in fact the META. Just make sure you add "drive to the red line" and "shoot stuff faster than they shoot you." :bush:

1. the final stage of a game such as chess, bridge or World of Tanks, when few pieces, cards or players on the server remain.

Because they don't understand all the Japanese and Korean on the ANZ server.

 

Not been playing much and found myself on the ANZ server by mistake and nearly the entire team had japanese/korean type names. 

 

Of course it could have been due to a rash of account renaming going on, but there were an awful lot of [] flying about in chat.

Based on their stats it doesn't appear to be working. In fact based on what i've seen, most of them are the baddies.
