Ok, here we go...I was told, I should open a topic in the gameplay discussion as well, so I try to summarize, who we are and what we do? :Smile_glasses:

The WOT Armory

Or on the new domain

Or on Twitter If you see several simple coloured armor schemes of new russian tanks for example, that is probably made by us and people refer to it. It's all right, it does not bother us. :Smile_great::Smile_veryhappy:

The most important parts of the blog are these simple armor sketches. They are made via dozens of training room games and hundreds of test shots each. We are talking about 12-15 workhours for each and not yet complete "report". From time and again we post updates about those.

In that case you have other results, than those, it's not a problem, just send usthe replay and we will check it out as soon as we can. Randomgoddess is a heartless bitch.

The Armory started just in April, but I have just learned, that we already have a chinese version. :Smile_veryhappy:  We are aware, that we have improve a lot, especially in the looks, but working on it, any feedback is welcome, it's for you! :Smile_Default:

Tank for your attention and have a good read! If the mods allow it, you can follow the updates for the blog here in the future. See you around! :Smile_honoring:

Thank you for being the armor nerds! ;)
Your reports are an invaluable help for every ambitious WoT player and can save hours in the training room. I found lots of interesting info on general armor and weakspots; up to now I can confirm your results where I've been able to test it.
Thanks for the work and your time; keep it up!

Wow. Top work, chaps.

Any word on those 'Not Hitbox' areas? What's that mean? It's just graphics detail and just goes right through?

[EDIT] - Also, nice paedophile joke :p

No compartment behind them, just place for some tools, supplies etc. It's separated from  the inside of the tank.

Nice, really nice!

(and some nice inuendo, or however you spell it, Doug! )

Fortunately, or unfortunately, many players will not see this, and thus remain easy targets....pray they are all on the enemy team!

Nonetheless, very nice stuff!

thx for your effort
it is very interesting to read your site and look at those graphics but why do you waste time on IS-8? Better introduce a tank that actually has armor :D

Hmm, on the 7.3 test server i was able to penetrate a IS-8 in the gun mantle with my Panther 2.(facehuged him)

In the video here http://wotarmory.wor...tection-report/ nobody tried to shot the mantle, yeah, i know...wtf? mantle? that should be impenetrable, but trust me, it was working :O i'll try to find the replay to show you :)
So, if you are bored, can you test if it's still possible to do it?
I tried to ask random ppl in battles, but most of them don't even bother to reply. :(
Added a picture with the area i was shooting.
Spoiler                     

Later Edit: Here's a link with the replay : http://www.4shared.c...y-Panther_.html

Can't upload it to mywotreplays because they don't support test server replays :(

Each shell penetrated, each shell did damage(yeah, no 0 damage hits :O )

We did shot the mantle on the upgraded turret and got only zero-damage penetrations by the edges, gun craddle was penetrated though.

Will check it out. I 've seen claims about pierced mantlets numerous times.

One might think, the current matchmaking spread and the presence of the Types are tools for some forced evolution towards the more expensive and premium-demanding higher tiers…
