That sounds good though there is still nothing about the most expected change in spare parts attribution.

Beside, i hope you planned to reintroduce the mastery badge counter in place of others less usefull indicators (ie hunter or survivor)

Nice additions, although this looks like an after-the-holidays-release with bit light content. I am looking forward to rebalancing of Tier X and increase of Spare Parts supply. The current Spare Parts system is shooting WG to its feet since it demotivates people from buying Premium Tanks.

I kind of overread the whole boring Camouflage thing and came to the only important (and beautiful) point:

 

HESH IS BACK!!!!

 

Oh my beloved Centurion 7/1 and FV4202, great times are ahead. If I'm correct we will now have BOTH the Highpen-HESH and HEAT Ammo on them. Oh I can feel the love, I can feel it, yes I can!

 

(maybe I might even give more than 1 Star this time, despite the whole SP issue still being completely unresolved... I bought a Panther 8.8 these days, it's still rotting in the Garage because of timers... idiotic)

I have to say I think both HESH and HEAT on the Cent 7/1 and FV is a bad solution. From my perspective, I am getting high pen HESH back, but losing low pen, cheap HESH.

 

What is the rationale behind giving the Cent 7/1 and FV what is basically an overpowered HE round? For me, having two kinds of premium ammunition is not only unbalanced, it also doesn't make the high tier British mediums more exciting to play, it just makes them more expensive to run.

 

I would have been fine with the two gun solution.

The decision does seem odd... however I dunnot really care for the cheap HESH... come on it's Tier 9/10, thats no place to be saving money... I think the HEAT is WGs way to deal with the initial mistake that was Nerfing the APCR Pen on the Gun, which made the British Meds suffer more than any other mediums. As getting rid of Highpen HESH was destroying the very reason of existence for the two tanks I guess that the choice of both premium ammos was the most reasonable solution... well the most reasonable one wouldve been turning APCR Pen back to Pre-Nerf values but we all know WG would never fix a mistake in that way...

 

I think its fun, I think both tanks will still not be OP with all their weakspots and low APCR-Dpm but for good players they will be on par with the better mediums on Tier 9 & 10

The attack markers are incredibly annoying. They get in the way. And I was discussing with a friend after seeing the screenshots in the news that these will probably make gameplay for phone players impossible as they will be all over their small screens.

 

To revert the attack markers back:

  1. Button on top left of garage
  2. Settings
  3. Other tab
  4. Set the "Attack Marker" option to "Radial".

The radial one should be the default, not this new one. It just gets in the way and it makes the game look like it's played on a cheap arcade machine at a gypsy-run caravan site.

Well, the new camouflages that override the tank's name are just annoying as hell. Why would you do that? Just to put pressure on the players, to now study the new tank's names? Please give everyone the option to disable "nicknames for tanks", its not worth the time. 

 

By the way, the Deathstar is now known as Smashing - not Hammer - as you wrote in the Update Announcement.

The new markers are very distracting.

With the attack marker set to radial its still annoying.

We need the option to turn it off completely

Legendary camo's are thrash. And in upcoming event players will be able to get IX(!) tier premium tank from chest. I hate newbies at high tiers, you are giving them chance to destroy fun. I hope that WG is bad joke.

New markers ? Just a joke ! It is for the guy in 183 who will die in less than 70s. After his pathetic death he will have pleasure to see the damage he has done in one shot. Thanks for him !
