To save everyone time by having to watch that video, basically expect situations like this:

It is the best update so far, i play a lot of heavy armored and inaccurate tanks, so it was a huge help for me.
Keep up the good work, i can finally enjoy TierX games!

Make a "Refund" option for SPGs. Their performance changed so much with this patch that the SPG I bought in 8.5 is unplayable for me in 8.6 update. I want a refund for SPGs because what I bought is a lot different than what I have now. I dont want utter garbage in my garage (thanks to you it is utter garbage now, take responsiblity). Giving players an option to sell their SPGs with %100 of their buying values would work.

You forgot to mention the fact that the new graphics system supposed to improve performance messes up the game for older systems and makes it unplayable.....
Please bring out a hot-fix for this within the next to weeks, thank you.

Otherwise nice vid!

Also, while we are on the subject, please hire either TheMightyJingles or QuickyBaby for doing the voiceovers because these Google-Translate voices are just bad  :smile:

Also also, since the maintenance work for the 8.6 patch the forums are dead slow, can you look into that?

Negrepping is for offensive posting, not opinions you personally disagree with.

Excellent video (1), extreme radical update (2).

(1) Each vehicle and each map, should have a wiki video like this one, with links from the tech trees in hangar.
EDIT: And from a new maps tree also with the rotation of the moment. :glasses:
King Tiger: http://worldoftanks....deo-king-tiger/

(2) Will take time to get use to the new gameplay.

The best for me:
"Increased income for high tier tanks";
"added a compensation mode for vehicles moving in Sniper mode"; Cool.

We will see, for me:
"New map added"; didn't saw it yet because of the poor maps rotation...
"Ammunition and Penetration Mechanics"; I saw a lot of bounces after 35 battles on 8.6.
"Self-Propelled Gun (SPG) Changes", the game tactics seems more free for tanks and TD now.

The worst for me:
"Improved after-battle statistics"; What?? Surely you have miss some bugs.
"Sound Improvements"; Nope.
I'm a bit noober again with the new Mechanics. I think I enjoy 8.5 more then WoT.


P.S.: "New birds have been added to Ruinberg and Lakeville", you also put the falcon in Airfield as last-ditch effort, to bring some loving birds customers...
"Removed the following inscriptions: "Popeye", "Mickey Mouse", "Betty Boop"". Yeh, I agree, a little bit weird... :trollface:

Well, atleast I won't get TD'ed by arties as often as previous in scouts.

'XP/credit bonus introduced, it works the same way as spotting damage' <- One of the best things available for scouts now!

"the artillery reload was increased by 10 to 20%"


LOL! thats a pure lie.

in 8.5 my M12 artillery had a reload of 17s.
now in 8.6 it has a 33s reload. that is not a 20% increase!! thats a 100% increase!

Hi all,
new method of tracking targets is upset. It is automatically snaps the enemy tanks when cross is near target. Is there a way to turn this off? I never used some automatic aim and i dont want it for future.

thx for reply,
Shakal

XP and Credits. It was a waste of time leveling those, seeing how we got treated.
