This sounds very stupid....if a get a top gun and lose i will get the same experience like i win..this is not normal...the players will fight for battle hero medals and not for the victory it self. WG please remove this!

I dont think, that they add all thede things...they talk only from the russian mediums and the 2 chinese prem tanks! And they wana switch the vk30 and vk36 to heavy tanks...and at last, a new map! All other things from this patchnotes are bullshit in my mind...

uhh, no they won't. It gives the same stats as a victory. Why would they fight for it instead of a victory? Remember! Stats! Everybody loves their stats >_>

They need to reduce that it's inline with the russian 122 premium shell , thats too high in my opinion still

Hmm. I like the "- aiming UI improved: added reloading time indicator in seconds, added new aiming reticle (a dot)"
No need for Jimbo's anymore.

XWM probably may be history because screen scraping will not work properly anymore. Let's see what happens.

Russia gets OP line? Lad, look at the ASAP video, 44th second where there is the tier 8 russian line vehicle. Hull armor 75, turret 100.. no armor at all, minimal slope. It only gets a great gun. It is like russian ELC AMX. Also ut had low hp pool ~1200. Take a look for yourself.

This is the link where you can see that you are the only one who writes bullshit:
http://ftr.wot-news....-8-patch-notes/

Besides ask your imperatore friends next time because they know about this informative site before you write a unnecessary comment...
