Okay fellas, what's new?
 

I can't remember the last time I played, i'm recovering from a bad illness and I have time to kill before I go back to work. What has changed in the game since 2017? Do we have map physics yet? Are there havoc physics on tanks yet (remember the IS-4 teaser all those years ago)? Are T6-8 still constantly being dragged into their max MM constantly?

 

What's new with me? Fair bit.

Hi Feet I remember you... welcome back. Ok long story short.  MM is better now, balance is worse, map physics is a thing but active physics stuff on tanks isn't.  

 

More P2W, better graphics. Skill still matters, RNG still does too...

 

Wheeled LTs have changed things, some would say for the worse. Mainly you have to be more careful passive spotting in a tracked LT and you can also get spotted earlier leaving spawn if wheelie is aggressive. 

 

Arty is less effective but more irritating. Friendly fire has been disabled, that is  debatable if it is a good thing..

I've had a couple of games in the StuG IV for that sweet MM, first game I made a huge mistake and died for pretty much nothing, second game I was pretty good. 

I'm probably going to just stick around in the mid tiers, no motivation to stress myself out in the higher tiers. 

 

Visuals are prettier, the physics are still not what was promised years ago (walls just disappearing when you crush through them).

Some new mechanics with hydropneumatic suspension. Works slightly different between Swedish TDs which need a setup time and Swedish meds (plus the STB1 Japanese tier 10) that do it automatically under a certain speed.

 

Auto re-loaders slightly different to autoloaders...they can load a shell in the magazine before the clip is empty.. down side if you fully empty the clip dpm is terrible. Unless it is the Russian IS3a which for some reason gets faster reload as it empties the mag. Italian auto reloader line one of the best lines they have added. Good tanks, not really a stinker among them.  Fun and challenging to use. Very effective if used well..

 

By the way if you have a KV3 untick crew training on it 2 barrel tanks coming on that line some time over the next couple or 3 months...

Alpha creep. Tier 8 HT's now hit for 440-490, Leopard now hits for 400+, Polish HT's hit harder than Chinese or Russian tanks, and LT's now hit for 390.

Armor creep. Since everyone now spams sprem as standard, weakspots have to be buffed, and tanks themselves have become tougher. Stuff like Obj. 252U, Obj. 430U, LT-432, Obj. 726 (279 e) warrant a minor weakspot study....Or just rely on the standard reticle which now compensates for angling.

 

Mid-tiers aren't too badly affected. Maybe the O-I and O-I exp rebalance, the funny Italian tier 4-5 tanks with 80-penetration HE shells, and the mid-tier SPG's hit harder per-tier as compared to higher-tier SPG.

I saw some of the new effects in Ensk. It's the stuff at Airfield that i was disappointed with, the whole clay houses just disappearing. Driving through the walls on ensk is awesome

True, the clay houses are the same on every map they're on.

 

It would be good if everything was destructible (within reason) to some degree - eg. 40 ton tank stopped by wooden staircase should not happen.

"People still play arty? Not cool."

Sometimes you will be lucky and you will only get 2 arty per team rather than 3.

If you play during the day or don't want to fight bots at low tiers (5 above) play on the HK server if your ping is okay. My ping is 130 - 150 and i find that okay for playing.

Another thing, Ezz is closing in on 40k posts, and when he does, WG will address him as "Lt. Col. Balance_Man" & award him a lifetime supply of Eggplants!

 

Oh Yeah, & Zynth will get a special edition Simon&Garfunkle Panther to the mark the occasion!

Aubergine....

The weirdest thing I experienced when I went to the Philippines was the eggplants there. They're long and thin.

I attempted some T8-10 games. T8 when I was top tier, perfectly fine. T9 and 10 however... I don't know. Why did I come back?
