"7 vs 7 Team Battles game mode" - new random mode? we dont care
"a new line of German tank destroyers" -  new tanks with the same role as old tanks, boring
"a new map" - new bugs to learn, yupi
"some game improvements" - u mean pointless changes in personal useless rating? lol

New german TDs have the least armor of all tanks.

Regarding Panzerjäger I:

"5 cm Pak 39 L/60 gun is not historically accurate for the period"

Nope. Not "for the period" - the vehicle never carried it, it's simply unhistorical.

"We never encourage experienced players to participate in low level battles."

....by handing out free lowtier tanks to everyone. Make no mistake, it's appreciated, but in such context, this made me smile :)

"For the first time in World of Tanks, a Japanese tank is available and it’s the Type-3 Chi-Nu Kai!"

Technically it's the second.  :tongue:
