Oh... a T-57...

Bah, obviously they wouldn't hand those out... Even though that'd be nice

I guess I will be making a decision on my next Tier 10 after Test 2 is over.

Still struggling over either Leo or T-62A... as it will probably be my last tank unless I free up garage space.

*sigh*

I will be very happy when there is a skin to remodel the T-62A into a Type 74. That would be an immediate deal-sealer, right there.

Is this game especially difficult to get into for new players? I've been in the mood to try this out lately but the amount of jargon in this thread is pretty intimidating and the new player guide on their website doesn't look all that helpful at first glance. Are there any comprehensive fan-made guides that anyone would specifically recommend?

Not difficult for new players.

If you have a question, ask away, and we will do our best to help. It may sound intimidating, but we all started with a Tier 1, when I was still driving a friggin' lawnmower late November of last year.

Do you have an online ID yet?

@RWBladewing - The game has a tutorial now for when you start but the complexity increases significantly over time with very little to guide you. I'd take a look at the WoT wiki for some good tips. There is also an increasing emphasis on statistics and performance.

The community is basically a shithole .. think of it primarily as any player base that plays FPS like CoD or others .. and then make the average age older and more grumpy. It's why there's a psuedo meme about this:

Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

That all said it's a fun game with tons of work put into it considering it's F2P. There's lots of depth with both broader strategic thinking as well as twitch gamer skills playing a role.

Thats why you should ask questions here. I never post on the WoT forums and I don't imagine I ever will.

But here... we nice people.

Most of the time...

Q (by a player named Mishkas88): "Will there be any changes in German tank properties in 8.5 test 2?" A: "No.
Well, it looks like there will be no changes to the German tanks in 8.5 Test v.2. T-62A it is.

EDIT: He might just be trolling... great...

I hate this tank it would be sold off long ago if it wasn't a premium. New garage is bright as hell btw.

Ah, the Schmalturm, which I decided not to purchase when I saw its horrid power-to-weight ratio.

For the record

- driver's hatch on IS-7 does not count as external module, but as armor
- it was considered to reduce the scale of shell penetration decay with distance
- M551 Sheridan is "not planned for now"
- PT-76 is not planned until bigger maps allow for amphibious tanks
- the aim spread after moving the gun/turret is not influenced by gun length or gun weight or other hidden parameters, but by gunner skill
- no composite armor will be implemented
- it's not yet decided, whether parts of client physics will be switcheable off, or just the physics as whole - experiments are in progress
- XP is awarded for first enemy module destruction (eg. chaindetracking will give you XP for destroyed tracks only once)
- devs are discussing the idea that old replays could be converted to new format
- upcoming Maus buff is confirmed, but it's not know when will it happen and it will not be significant
- WoWs has the tank drawing distance removed (or rather, it's much longer), but tanks won't have it removed, the parameters of both projects are different
- 8.6 will bring the sound engine overhaul (SS: unknown what it means)
- Leopard 1 might be too high, it will be rechecked
- acceleration is a balance parameter, eg. the acceleration of Leopard 1 doesn't have to be historical
- the +/-25 percent random factor came to be thru experience, in the beginning, it was 50, it won't be reduced to 10
- Leopard 1 might get better accuracy on the move
- new sounds (of shell impact) might come until autumn, but no promises
- dynamic garage tank stats are planned for distant future
- the Leopard 1 Bundeswehr cross is an exception, there won't be post-war insignia for (for example) US and Chinese tanks
- the tank icon indicator on the top of the screen won't get (apart from classes as it is now) also tier designations, it would be too much
- a mechanism is planned for all the "collecting" archievements (medals) to display, what do you have left to do, will come around 0.8.8
- in 0.8.5, only the most obvious objects (fences, walls) were fixed in order not to reduce the speed of a tank too much when running them over (thru them), the rest will be fixed in time

Not yet, I have plans for tonight so I likely won't be able to get on till tomorrow. I'll let you know when I do though. (Though I am a bit hesitant to accept that social group invite at the moment because I don't yet know if I like the game and in the event that I do, I'm still currently more or less just a random who nobody knows.)

Ah, and now 8.6 will be one where a lot of balancing will be done.

Keep fingers crossed!
