Will the previous launcher update automatically or do we need to download the entire test client again?

when i see

"- Rebalanced all vehicles introduced in 8.0: PzIV Schmalturm, Object 263, SU-101, SU-100М1, SU-122-54."

i don't have a clue what is rebalanced. Can we see some exact data? so even if i don't go on test server i can follow changes.

Also, there are changes to some other vehicles. Can we see data that are changed?

Thanx.

p.s.

and when i see this

"- Dramatically increased performance on all maps with new renderings" i am always more than happy, if this is true and is working :Smile_blinky:

p.p.s

- Reworked battle weight and Tier spread for T-127 and Matilda Black Prince

how? now is +/-1 or?

Rebalanced all vehicles introduced in 8.0: PzIV Schmalturm, Object 263, SU-101, SU-100М1, SU-122-54. - I would like to see a list of detailed changes by what they mean "Rebalanced"
