Hi folks :)

              As the title says, returning player here. Played religiously since 2012 to about 2014 I believe, but then real life and monotony steered me away from WoT and I shifted away to WoWs for a few years. Decided to pick the game up again, but the moment I logged in and the whole UI overwhelmed me. It's clear the game has changed quite a bit since the days of gold shells becoming available for credits, so decided to ask the community about tips, guidance and/or prevention against any pitfalls/traps, before I roll into my first battle again.

 

Would appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

 

Regards,

LonerPrime

Equipment 2.0 and Field Modifications are probably the biggest changes you'll want to look into.
DezGamez on youtube explains it all fairly well.

Maps are different, and many tanks have had their armor and HP changed.

 

One important bit is the reticle; it's more reliable now. It now adjusts for angle, so if says green you will penetrate even if angled. It might even account for overmatching, letting you know what roofs you can blast open with your 122mm gun.

 

Thing is though, your enemy also has this feature and thus will penetrate you more reliably as well.

Wheeled cars are in the game now. They are fast and so you should try to kill them because you dont have 999 ping like your teammates. There are also annonymizer feature to hide your real name ingame and from xvm. Double barrel tanks and autoreloading guns (its like an improved autoloader) are in game too. You can no longer dmg teammates or use chat to talk to enemies. And all the other changes mentioned above.

New tanks, new countries, new HD client since then. Easier to progress since then with daily missions (first 3 can reroll eveyr 4 hours). Extra benefits for progression if you have a premium account.

 

Also, blueprints introduced which let you unlock xp of each tank (not modules), making progress quicker. Get those mostly from daily missions plus other events.

 

"Battle pass" is a 3x3 month event each year; we're close to finishing 2nd event this year (end August), so good to accrue points ASAP for this event to get the benefits (you get free bonuses without paying, but can pay for extra benefits if you want).

 

1.18 coming out soon, with a new map, and adding Italian TD tech tree. Also will be tweaking existing tank's specs.

 

Tier 8 is infested with premiums now, and they've started with a couple now on tier 9. At tier 8, progetto and bourrasque are most popular. At tier 6, M40 is most popular but will finally be nerfed shortly.

 

Tech tree was revamped, with quite a number of well known popular tanks hived off to a separate "collector" section so they're not part of the tech tree flow any more but can still get if you want them.

 

WG 12th birthday coming up later this month and there will be discounts then (including the first discounts on collector tanks ever), so if you want to buy any tanks for credits, wait til then for a bit of a saving.

M24 Chaffee has been nerfed, HE was screwed. Games are one-sided most of the time and WG places everything behind paywalls. The game has gone to waste since 2014. Honestly you should have stuck to WoWs .

Lots more cheaters in the game now.

Pretty much guaranteed anyone with a win rate over 55% are using illegal mods

They will cry and shuffle about the subject and will always bring up other players stats if those players have a win rate below 45% (case of the guilts maybe ??)

Gave the game up long ago

You can learn the maps and mechanics but you will never learn to beat cheaters

Superb. Not only illegal mods but we hacked the servers long ago to get better mm and rng. It's the only possible explanation!

I guess my first question is - is this a provable statement that you make? Cause I'm freaking stoked to provide EVERY replay from the games I play, just ask if you want to see my "illegal mods" (I play off a vanilla client, not even aslain's for me).

Hey look, spacey has aspirations. In about 30k more battles he too will be considered a certified illegal haxx user.

Yea nah totes defensive, all I ever feel is defensive. And the guilts, feel lots of those from my mega haxxors. 

 

Believe me bro, it's not that we feel guilty, it's more that we feel sorry for those less fortunate to have been provided the burden of logical thinking. But you keep on keeping on there soldier.

Denial of what? From the very first time I was accused of using hax by some barely literate swamp toad I knew what my goal for the game would be. Each such act of incredulity from the ill informed bottom feeders fueled my passion and urged me on. My highlight reel shifted from trivial esport and clan activities to matters of genuine significance. Pubbie tears. T49 derping became a particular passion. It highlighted both how ludicrous the accusation actually was, as well as how ludicrous the derp could be. So no, not in denial in the least. I love this shit. The more ridiculous the better.

Like I said the cheaters will shuffle shuffle shuffle-maybe you should try dancing

I suppose that when you are a below average player that you have to have some sort of crutch to explain why that is so.

 

So why do you only turn on your hacks when playing the Marder 38T? That 62.5% win rate screams hacks to me.The 80% WR in your SU-85I is also a tad sus as well.

Illegal mod user spotted.

 

Especially when he gets over 50% in K91PT, must be RNG mod.
