Why did you say that? Just curious.

 

Looking very much forward to the new map since lately the only thing happening is maps being removed instead of added it seems.

 

============

 

As for the VK2801, it used to be one of my favourite vehicles until it was nerfed into the ground for really no reason. These buffs are very welcome but really the only thing it needed was the old penetration vlues back with HEAT and it would have been good again. That was why it was loved before, it had a relatively neat gun compared to the competition.

 

The Chaffee has view range and good penetration but low damage

The T-50-2 had speed and magic armour but average gun.

The VK2801 had alpha and decent penetration but was a huge target

 

This was a very good balance.

============

 

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

"certain light tanks will have their upper limit reduced in terms of battle range"

> any information about the Chaffee? On the testserver I recognized that I still joined tier 10 battles with this tank... so this tank has no changes?

 

the link with "detailed list" also doesn't give me more information. Can sb. help?

 

any Sources? Thank you!

It was said that the Chaffee will retain its current MM, you might find some info about that on the FTR blog

Probably saying that due to the  "Non-premium TDs losing their camo values where as premium TDs will retain theirs"

But that is quite logical although yes it's not nice. A lot of people paid with actual money for these premium vehicles in the gift shop and nerfing them can be considered a breach in contract for the service that Wargaming provides. EU/State laws put rules on the degradation of a service and it becomes ground for the disbanding of the original contract. That is why they pulled the Type59 from the store instead of massively nerfing it.

I think you are confused about the meaning of certain words. Pay to win would be if Wargaming sold tanks for money that you could not get with in game credits which were provably better than their "free" counterparts or for instance what premium ammo was when it was still for gold (real money) only.

That you can't repair all your tanks as a free player means that either:

 

A) You are playing badly yourself which limits your income to much

B) You are playing tier 9/10 tanks which are not supposed to make a profit to begin with (game design)

Nice of you to announce it on the front page 12 hours in advance... Even though everyone knew it was coming a week ago :-/

 

Still front page announcement is an improvement over some previous patches... +1

Please remember the downtime guys, along with the clan wars downtime.  We'll have a feedback section up tomorrow and would appreciate that everyone uses that section for their 9.1 feedback to help us collect all the info.

You are granted 7 garage slots at registration, with certain codes and promotions we gave out, even more. You do not need premium account to win, nor gold to preform well. Yes, with premium account you progress a bit faster, and with premium ammunition the game play is slightly more forgiving, but more than definitely, your fate is in your hands at the end of the day. Payables will not grant you victories - that is up to you and your skills.

 

Tier 10 tanks are end game content, and they are not meant to be profitable, with premium or without. Premium account softens the blow a bit, but that is it.

Ty for that, the voting system doesn't matter much IMO but I appreciate the gesture.

3k damage doesn't mean much if all that dmg was deal while someone else was spotting. That way you get 50% of credits and exp for the dmg done. If you spot and deal dmg, that way you'll get maximum credits and exp. Spotting and tracking can get you more credits because you'd spend less money on ammo (keeping the target spotted while others shoot or tracking it in the open only when it repairs). Use your ammo and your viewrange smart, and you'll start making profit even with tier 10.

That new map, Kharkov looks awesome. And MM for light tanks IV-VII is also good thing to do.

 

I really hope it goes all well, and not so much lags/freezes than on 9.0 patch.
