I can't see the video. It says Flash crashed. Tried refreshing. Other videos on YouTube working just fine.
EDIT: NO, wait.. now all of them stopped working -.-

Ok, after viewing it on another browser...
Gold ammo is a failed experiement, noticable by it's availability in the game. REMOVE THAT GAMEBREAKING FEATURE! Armos are obsolete. Better make our E-75s fast, rather than slow lumbering papers for the gold spammers. Not to mention the 105mm derps derping around the battlefield.
Also, you didn't really explain the special Teir X tanks, only that it's high tier (no s*** Sherlock, it's a Tier X).
What happened to the original voiceover guy?
But I'm looking forward to the other things mentioned :) You poor people, getting so much hate from such a wonderful game.

I saw an Su8 with a 203mm gun from the Su14 and S51, hmm i think the tiers will move up 5->7, 6->8, 7->9, 8->10 and they may add a new tier 5 and 6 to the arty tech tree lines, this would work :)

Hopefully they will be a bit more balanced with their own tiers once they go up to tier 10. I'm looking forward more to the 8.6 update than the 8.5 update tbh.

I do not agree with the statement that gold ammo is a failure. In my opinion this is a very good tool balancing clan wars because of weaker clans who do not have lands and do not have as much gold as strong clans can fight on equal terms from the technical side (despite the gap in skills). And that use of  gold ammo in random battles  it really is not a common thing, as to play in random battles with gold ammo is a real luxury for the most of players.

Rumor has it that there are three special tanks that will go as special prizes in clan wars.

Object 907  (think Ubber bouncy T55)

VK7201  (Lowe with a turret at the back or so-called FailLowe)

M60

Search for Object 907  and VK7201 and you will find images on silent stalkers blog (cannot link to it and you know why)


It is likley that the winners of these tanks will not be able to use them in pub matches as there will be such envy rage that they will be TKed before the other team get a chance to kill them

Its called the Type59G syndrome... or avaliable for all or all shoot them... and the Gold Type was premium... i dont see the point in gift a tank that the owner cant use in the game... to made this better made this tanks avaliable via medals, something like "have tech medal and you can buy the tank or you receive it as gift".

I am more interested in how they introduce arties... remember that to have tier 8 arties we grind same xp than trees with 10 tiers... they force grind med and TDs tier 10 but now we talk about 2 tiers more.

It may not be that SerB as the uber plonker puller and it could be that he is sowing misinformation and the three "prize tanks" are for something else entirely as you say.

Yes Tier 10 arty = Tier 8 arty with tier 10 repair bills and ammo costs.

Not so much of a promotion as a shadow nerf - pay for a prem account and play well enough to break even or finance you T10 arty by playing more profitable tanks in T5 and T6.

this is worrying me. They also mentioned somewhere something about new guns for research at SPGs.. D:

Btw, that Gw Tiger and even batchat.. seem a bit odd to me, dunno why..

FFS stop crying!!!!!!!!!! Today E75 bounced my 2 gold shots from ferdinand. And overall, e75's front magic armor is one of the bests if not the best in game. Seriously, bouncing ferdi's 311 penetration over and over again?

removing gold ammo wont change a thing now, people who has millions of credits will buy tens of thousands of gold ammo and you STILL see gold ammo spammers for next half a year. Maybe decrease gold ammo penetration same as normal shot but give extra alpha dmg?
