Welcome back Mockney, I’m sure you’ll get in the swing of it again. Maybe you should get on discord to someone you know and go through the millions of changes with them.

awesome stuff.

So vents, GLD etc gone, and we get the same options for all tanks or are they class based?

I seem to have about half a million of these cog type thingies.

Will that get me far?

 

500,000 cogs (spare parts) will unlock about 20 equipment slots.  Each tank has nine slots.  The top row of 3 are unlocked with credits, the other two rows, 6 slots, you need spare parts.  

 

The last two slots in the bottom row are non-essentials (they boost consumables).  But Vstabs is very useful on most tanks.

 

Unfortunately you have to unlock all slots in the second row before you can unlock Vstabs in the third row.

 

So for most tanks, you’ll need to unlock 4 slots with spare parts.  So 500,000 spare parts will unlock 20 slots, upgrading 5 tanks to a competitive level.

 

Recommend not using spare parts on tanks below Tier 6, unless the tank is a favourite you will drive lots.  The lower the tier of the tank, the less cost effective spare parts become.

A lot of changes. Start playing in a toon with someone who is to upt to date and talk it out on voice over a few beverages. Simples. Also CanCracker has been superseded by whoever this Abides troll is - lol. 

 

Take ken some comfort in the fact that somethings, aka trolls, never change and are as sad, pathetic and meaningless as always.

GL HF NTMU GJ TY GG are also still acceptable shorthand’s :)

Hy Epic!! Glad to see you're well.

I get the impression you're not alone in the name changes, hopefully I'll catch up with all of the changes soon enough.

Yeah ikr, time bloody flies....

 

I'm going to abuse the DW2 as a sort of god mode whilst i work out all the new maps....lol, dirty seal clubber :)

Brilliant that’s all us seals need, it’s not as if there’s a shortage of clubbers, luckily there are many many seals :)

Mockney—light tanks, IMO, spot early, but don't fire first. Try not to get spotted.

how do they play on blitz?

I'm a big light tank fan on console but the meta of the bigger maps friendlier to TDs perhaps makes it a more viable play style (well, all the crappy broken city maps notwithstanding)

I recall the OP germans appearing prior to their nerf, but not been around for any subsequent lines.

 

In fact it has all just changed up on console with the release of tier X lights and the rebalancing of all the others.

 

But damnably good idea for learning maps, something quick. Probably healthier than chugging slowly around in the deathwagon like some arse!

Best line?

Uhhh. Russian?

 

Come on Mockney, you remember some things about the game, don't you? :) German are still good, Russians are better because they have armour, French are tricky because they have autoloaders, and the T49 is cheating.

We may see Chinese too before long. Probably another year though, only Meds Heavys and TDs have been confirmed so far to the best of my knowledge.

i've a couple of premium Chinese lights, but haven't really pushed up that line yet. As far as i can tell they're kind of al-lrounders.

My type 632 is verrrry slow, but great camo and an underwhelming gun. Type 64 is lovely though, especially now i finally have sixth sense...kind of useful on a scout.

 

Will be really interesting to see how scouting compares on blitz. Right, will start grinding the ruskies i guess.

For your entertainment and edification, I include my latest writings on Russian Light tanks:

 

The MT-25 got a new autoloader recently:

For extra credit, here is what turned out to be an in-depth (meaning: super nerdy) look at the new leKpz M41 90 "Black Dog":

I'll admit that when i mentioned to my old blitz mate and current console emigre radinko245 that i was thinking of picking up a tablet again, he rather scoffed and went 'why would you play world of lemmings'.

SO far, and this may be because I'm on tier 5 withthe T-34 to head up the russian lights, but thus far every game has been a lemming train vs random meanderings, and the lemmings have steamrollered every game, with me sadly on the receiving end more often than not.

 

Is this indeed the fate of blitz or should i just get the hell out of tier 5?
