I almost got scared you touch "Equipment" screen, but looks like changes are only for provisions and consumables (+ camo). Yay, so I can keep 9 equipment on my favorite tanks, btw what about tech tree changes "removed xx amount tanks" ?

At last a better matchmaking system,hopefully,which relies on a players skill instead of being steamrollered by a team of more heavies on Himmelsdorf....Yes it happened today & I was on the team with more heavies for a change :trollface:

"From now on, no more than three vehicles of the same type per team are allowed in regular battles. The number of vehicles of the same type in different teams is calculated based on the +/-1 principle. For example, if there are 2 medium tanks in one team, then there will be from 1 to 3 medium tanks in the other team." 

 

Thank you based Wargam! Finally no more teams of 4+ TDs on one side, none on the other.


Female crew voicepacks please!

Reclassify the M7 as a Light Tank! Reclassify the AMX CDC as a Tank Destroyer!

Yeah, it's a good move, though I thought it was supposed to have been implemented in January. However, when I do play a TD just now, the MM always seems to generate two TD-loaded teams, which is weird.

hmmm I remain sceptic, since the last 2 updates rather ruined the game. Also, in the past by selling a tank with equipment you were getting back half the value of the equipment. don't see that again as an option.

Wait i dont get it so WG is making a new mm system, for example no 4 TD  tanks for both teams so that mean, there will be a platoon of 2 FV215b (183) and 1 FV 183 to the enemy team ? isnt that will dominate the battlefield ? if they were unicums players with 60% stats? 

I mean if the toon is playing the same Tank this will benefit them alot in the grounds lol.. 

sorry for my english

Equipment changes and tech tree changes will occur in later updates, not in 5.1.

That update seems very good indeed except mastery badge changes and unnecessary buffs and nerfs. Hope you leave mastery badge system as it is. Currently, it is very good and if  you turn it into a medal, you'll force people to do show off with how many times they earned mastery badges in that vehicle. I find this absurd becase getting mastery badges are already very hard at the moment.

Wg, I believe you are trying to do good stuff, make nice changes but you don't need to change the good things in the game. ^^

on the contrary, it is good because of the change in mastery badges. I presume that many of us have gained plenty of mastery badges twice or more times in the same vehicle. I for example have gained at least 6 with the T34 independence and 2 or 3 with IS 3 that never sown up as achievements. What is doubtfully good is the new MM that doesn't consider number of battles and WR as parameters for it. So probably we will have to face the known combinations in less tanks.

Both the Tiger II and the VK 45.02 have definitely been powercreeped.  And TBH, they aren't the only ones.

 

I've been comparing the AMX M4 49 and the Tiger II, VK 45.02, T32, KV-4, and WZ-110 on tanks.gg and found some interesting differences between PC and Blitz versions.

 

On tanks.gg the Tiger II and VK 45.02 have -8 degrees of gun depression, not -6.  All the others have the same gun depression as in Blitz.  Why have the German Tier VIII heavies been short-changed on gun depression in Blitz?  Anti-German bias?

 

In Blitz, 100 mm guns, and 110 mm (& 10.5 cm) guns do 310 alpha damage, and 107 mm guns do 320 alpha damage.  Tanks.gg shows that in PC the 100 mm guns do 300 alpha, and 105 mm guns and 107 mm guns do 320.  Now, 105 mm is closer in calibre to 107 mm than 100 mm is to 105 mm, so it follows that the alpha damage should be in proportion.  So why don't the 105 mm (and 10.5 cm) guns in Blitz do 320 alpha damage, same as the 107 mm guns?  Russian bias, as the only nation with 107 mm guns?

 

These things need to change IMO.

Well, I have also earned mastery badges many times in specific tanks. I think, mastery badge is just a badge that shows that the player is mastered in that tank. There are already many hard to get medals that shows the players' proficiency in the tanks like Nicols' , Radley Walter's etc. It is unnecessary to turn it into a simple medal and also it kills the spirit of getting the mastery badge on every tank. I started to do a task to get mastery badges on every tank several days ago. Now, I don't care about mastery badges anymore. Wg can enhance the mastery badge system with marks of excellence just like in Wot Pc. If they want to do something better they can put marks of excellence according to mastery badges, for instance 3rd class players get one mark and 1st class ones get 3 marks and players with mastery badges get 3 mark + golden symbol that shows players' proficiency in that tank. Hope you see my point.

I don't play WoT pc so I don't know what's there. But if they had an alternative system and they didn't put it in Blitz means that either they can't or its much effort to them and their scope isn't to put effort to improve the game, but rather to make it more profitable for them, by throwing "bones" to the crowd..

What's wrong with showing the cumulative total aces on a tank? The achievement will be the same, and it's not going to stop me trying for at least one on each tank I've owned. Some I will never play again, but others are fun, so I'll keep playing them.

I heard that they were going to make the Mastery badges cumulative ... If that is true it means that they would not matter anymore, the number of mastery badges would not mean you are good in many tanks, you could play Tier 1 always with the same tank and beat anyone ... pathetic. Another crapfrom the wargaming apes. Why do I lack respect? ... Because wargaming calls us stupid with each new update.

It's embarrassing to play this game.
