Why on earth does the guy (if it's a guy and not a bot) pronounce the Jagdpanzer with J and not correctly as "yagd", Panzer shortcut Pz as "pee zee", Ausf as osf etc...? Otherwise - nice video.

Hello there
He does this because in the English language a J is never pronounced as a Y unlike most European languages.  :Smile_amazed:

Steppe had some arty covers removed....WHAT?!?!  Sry, but it never had real arty cover. So arty
is one of the bigger WoT problems and you are trying to change that by rebalancing it and
spreading it out to tier ten, but in the meantime lets make a map more arty friendly...
REALLY WARGAMING, REALLY ???!!!???!!!
Some very...special people seem to be responsible for the map design. I always wondered,
if the map designers actually played the game in a higher tier than tier 1 and are even
grasping the concept of artillery. Like the ...very special person that wanted every cover, even rocks
to be destroyable by arty, so that these flipping cowardly campers can hide anymore from
their courageous arty!

To be fair, except for that stu..special commentary in the video, Steppes is still exactly the same
for me.

The PzKpfwII Luchs, VK1602 Leopard and VK 2801were all 'bumped' to a higher tier and slightly 're-balanced'...

*nerfed*

'bumped & re-balanced'

Yea gj wg you f..... it up again .... put more tanks cause so you can earn money but f.... gameplay no problem. BTW with the f... up you did again arty are presented as tank ingame so we cant put sights .. also we lost our sights in tanks .....
instead of working in match making and other bugs you just more tanks every 1-2 months .... GJ

Yes well, I figured that out... just... you know... kinda thought that when I am supposed to publicly read something, I generally find out how is that stuff pronounced, so nitpicking twats like me don't go on forums and make posts like the one you are currently reading.

I like how he specifically pointed out that there is now less arty cover in Steppes, like anyone complained about too much arty cover in Steppes...or in WoT....or like....ever.


So let's see;
First you gave every nation tier 10 TD's which had unpresedented guns at tier 10, to make people grind them, ofc.
Then you gave Brits a TD that could do double the damage of the JpzE100, to make people grind the Brit TD line.

So what kind of TD are the Chinese getting? Considering their tier 7 heavy has 300 pen with APCR ammo, I'm afraid to ask what kind of stats a tier 10 TD gun will have.

Edit:Found it! Looks like it will have great gun elevation for a TD to boot.  :Smile_trollface-3:

But the question is, how will the second German TD line top even that, since not all maps in WoT have double lanes of train tracks on them...if you know what I mean  :Smile_smile:

HAHAHAHAHA! ............. HA!
More fail than ever... OK, guys at WG, can you stop sing this program narrator and hire a real narrator for videos??? It isn't expensive! And you would avoid all this shame that you put on your "serious" company...
And this British TD line is EPIC FAIL! Tortoise should be tier 10, and FV215 b was never planed to be TD... -.-'' ... Do you guys even check history before you embarase yourself??? OK, let's put this embarasing update behind us and focus on adding the rest of British TD's and moving Tortoise on it as a tier 10...

I would agree the choices for the British Td line are bad and illogical. when real service vehicles such as  17pdr SP Achilles an M10 variant &  Valentine, Mk I, Archer Self Propelled 17pdr which both saw service and are logical for use with other vehicles in the game as models for both chassis are already in the game and as such both should be fairly easy to implement. instead we got a bunch of prototype and fail designs that didnt even get to prototype stage.

As for the map changes, all of the map changes to date seem to be taking cover and making slopes rather than the old sudden drops. The only real changes that needed making were access points and egress slopes from water, and some access to higher ground areas.

Logic & balancing aren't in the knowledge base of Wargaming, money and nerfing the german tanks are always top priority, any of the 'old timers' can tell you this.

As for the actual update, 2 of the 10 tanks from the new Brit TD tree were considered for use afaik, the A-39 Tortoise had 4 prototypes made and personally I think it should be tier 8 (since stats-wise it's virtually the same as the american T-28), apart from the Tier 10 (1 dummy was made) the rest are made up, I'd re-echo previous comments about the other TD's that should be in there i.e. the Achilies, Archer and possibly the Sherman Firefly, but I'm guessing these will either be in a later release or (shock/horror) they will be premiums...

Hmm 18.3 inch gun? I like that, no wonder plp are saying that the T10 brit TD is OP  :Smile_veryhappy:
18.3 inch gun, then that would probably mean somthing like:
Caliber: 465mm
Damage: AP 2900, HESH 4450, I know, who needs HESH when you kill EVERYTHING by 1 AP shot  :arta:
Penetration: well i dont know, maybe few houses
Cost of AP shell about 5700-6000

PS: Then why dont they put the Sturmtiger here, that poor guy has only 380mm  :Smile_trollface-3:

Still happening. patch after patch, they are attacking German tanks by buffing others and nerfing Germans.
And they can for the German tankers are the only ones whom stick to thier choice.
Playing the "HARD"mode.

I play for having fun... it's getting harder every patch but what the heck!
But to those who look up statts,... If somebody has good statts but play mostly Russian tanks,.. I consider it to be less relative, just fine "EASY"mode statts.
