Stopped playing 2015 and coming back due to well the quarantine and I guess giving it another try.
What did I miss?

The minimap has now circle that show draw range, view range and spot range (no square anymore). No more team damage and no more ALL chat, these 3 changes combined is what changed the meta. Ah, almost forgot, SPG is now more annoying, consumables are now resuplyable during battle, and lots of maps were removed.

 

You quit the game almost in the same year that I joiined the game, I created account in 2015 but didnt play for more than a year i believe.


Having META problems?

A lot has changed in five years. New lines, new graphics, new physics, just to say the least.

I'd suggest tuning into a few twitch streams just to get yourself up to speed and ask questions where you can.

The changes are too drastic to tell you exactly what has changed. However, I'll try to jot down some of the massive pointers.

 

  • No more ALL chat
  • No more team damage
  • XVM Minimap features have been incorporated
  • You can preview tanks in garage
  • Blueprints (to make grinding faster)
  • Reserves (XP, Combat XP, Credits, Crew XP)
  • Wheeled Tanks
  • Italian and Polish Tech Trees (and Swedish?)
  • More broken Tier 8 premium tanks (Defender, Skorp)
  • Tech tree reworked
  • Collector's Tanks included (tanks removed from tech tree)
  • Bonds
  • Improved Equipments (purchasable only by bonds)
  • Directives and Bounty Equipments
  • Japanese Derps no longer as effective
  • New Premium Account features (reserves, map exclusion)
  • +15% xp and credits in platoons (not sure if this was added or already in the game then)
  • Frontlines and Steel Hunter (for Tier 8s)
  • Bots in lower tiers for ANZ server (Great for statpadding... learning the game I mean)
  • New player token after completing beginner missions (you can now skip to Tier 6 just completing these simple missions)
  • Consumables are reusable (90 sec cooldown between use)
  • Premium ammo is only purchasable by credits (no more gold!)
  • Marks of Excellence (the new trendy thing to grind)
  • New Camouflage System
  • Decals to design your tanks!
  • New features: Siege Mode (Swede TDs), Autoreloaders (Italian MTs), Enhanced Autoaim (French Wheelies)
  • Lower tier tanks have more HP now
  • Personal Missions Stages 1 & 2 (StuG IV, T28 Concept, T-55A, Obj 260, Excaliber, Chimera, Obj 279 (e) as rewards)
  • Artilleries reworked (they now do less direct damage and inflict more stuns - makes them more irritating)
  • New Maps (Ghosttown, New Kharkov, Minsk, Studzianki, Empire's Border)
  • New physics (you can now flip your tank and die, turrets fly off your tank when ammoracked)
  • Game is more HD (previous point)
  • Armor is taken into consideration when HE is fired on it (not sure if this was already in the game in 2015)
  • Tier 10 Light Tanks 
  • Light Tanks enjoy regular MM (no more +3)
  • On Asia Server, +/-1 is very common 
  • Loot Boxes during Christmas/New Year (very controversial but you can also get gold at good values and some rare/exclusive tanks)
  • WGLeague no longer as popular (I think?)
  • Clan Wars is semi-dead (not as it was in 2015)
  • Double Carousel in garage for those with many tanks
  • Anonymiser (hides your real nickname and stats from XVM users)
  • Obtainable skins for some tanks 
  • Tanks for Bonds (M60/121B - 15k bonds, FV215b - 12k bonds, Patriot/Mutz/Guard - 8k bonds, Pz IV hydrostat - 3k bonds, M10 RBFM - 1.5k bonds)
  • Daily Missions (50k credits rewards)
  • Singapore Server moved to Hong Kong Server

 

Some future changes that you might come across when you start playing again:

 

  • Polish MT tech tree (Tier 10 comes with new funky feature)
  • Equipment 2.0 (Sandbox server phase)

Why do I still play this game?

    I still think it's morally wrong so in fact I'm right.

Well, those are obvious changes that you'll see. Meta changes are a whole new story.

Is there not? I am pretty sure some tanks from 2015 are quite obsolete lately.
