For Chinese tanks, the penetration of the APCR shell on the Po-471 122mm guns has been changed from 300mm to 250mm

since when do they have APCR, it was always HEAT as far as i know  :trollface:

Sadly we can't test any of the new Chinese premiums as they are not added to the store or tech tree! I understand WG want to control the numbers of them by not adding them there but you could at least give us a chance to drive them on the test server.

Bit of disappointed really...

No, I think it's the little thing at the end of the gun that they remove. The gun itself will be removed in 8.9

When your team is defeated but you get one of the Battle Hero, Epic or Platoon achievements, you will now receive х1.5 credits and experience (as for the victorious team).

That's acrually real good! Thumbs up!

"We’ve hit them hard" phrase has been removed from the voiceover.

Not that I'll miss it, but why the hell was that needed?

Please someone say that the chinese premium tanks will be in the tech tree! I've already bought a lot of gold to buy them in time...
If they will stay in the gift shop i'll stop playing world of tanks...

New Chinese Premium Tanks added to Gift Shop
T-34-3 (Tier VIII Medium tank)
112 (Tier VIII Heavy Tank)

They really did that... And you cannot test them in public test 8.8. Epic WG.

Very disappointed. These premium tanks are very expensive and I don't like the idea of not being able to test them at test server.

Besides it's only a small fraction of the playerbase who even go to the test server, what would have been the harm in putting these tanks to ingame store at test server? Now we have to wait for live 8.8 and some decent youtube reviews or replays.
