Anyone else watch the new 6.2 video, new map looked interesting with lots of level changes with under-passes and bridges/flyovers.  I really like Faust so hoping it is similar to that and something good being added...

Rest of stuff was all Business As Usual (altho Bugger All Use is better!) - more consumables/provisions for more credits and a new British event for a tier vii...

I agree the new map looks promising! It's New York though, not San Francisco (I'm not making that up, WG confirmed it on Facebook!).

What's the meaning of BAU? Never heard if it - I'm a ignorant Belgian after all :D

 

Another event, let's hope it doesn't cause another influx of useless players...

Oh Eazy you Victorian era British admiral... reactive armor and welding consumables are going to be game changers. Remember those games where it is a 1v1 with 2 shot heavy vs 1 shot light? Those games will now be purely in light tanks favour. Tier 10 heavy tanks and particularly Maus with the welder, reactive armor and sandbags... dare I say more? 

 

The long awaited autoloader for Foch 155 is here and that means I have finally a reason to continue grinding in Foch. Other changes I dont mind but what is the purpose of purchasing sandbag as it is already available as an equipment. Do they stack? Does healing take the vanilla full hp or improved full hp into account? Map preview is nice but cant say anything about it until it is released for the public.

 

Last but not least this goes to all the people whining about KV-2 nerf... KUDURUN ULAN!!!

 

I am calm now.

long time ago when leaks came out people in the NA talked more about detroit. It also made me think of Detroit tbh. 

Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

Edit I glanced at the video, 

 

we can see the iron, the Empire State, the Brooklyn bridge. The Chinatown gate and other things.

no more doubt it’s New York.

I thought it was Springfield crossed with Manchester. And a bit of Gotham.

Empros is recruiting! Message me in game to apply.

Lol I’ve been watching too much Warrior, I instantly thought of China Town in SF plus , I thought as  it was called New Bay the Bay was as in San Francisco Bay, I was watching the stream on replay scrubbing at high speed and with sound off so may have missed a bit ;)

Not New York because it's copyrighted, or something. So why not New Amsterdam, its original name, rather than the somewhat silly New Bay?

Will they enable friendly fire? Seeing as Americans tend to mostly shoot at their own side? :hiding:

Mostly???

I thought they already got awarded medals simply for the number of shots fired, even if they are nowhere near the target, or do zero damage against a target impossible to pen!

Amazing. Out of the hundreds of historical cities of WW2 to have a battle, they chose NYC which has never seen a tank battle and is too modern and out of theme.

I guess they are going to make a sales push to the merkins, as it’s a huge market they’re not really doing well in it...

I would really like to see an Ardennes map, lots of forest and hills. Would be historically make sense as well having the Battle of the Bulge in mind (and I would love to see a Belgian based map so yes I’m biased :D).
