I started in June 9th 2011 and it was patch 6.4

At that time there were like 50-100 tanks in the game(including gift and premium tanks).Right now it is estimated to have more than 300).Back then there were only 3 tier 10 heavy tanks:Maus,T30 and IS7.3 nations:Usa,Ussr and Germany.There was no arty above tier 7(i think,maybe it was tier 8),no mediums or tank destroyers above tier 8 and no light tanks above tier 4.Also arty back then was the most OP thing in the history of this game.Oh yeah and there was no ingame physics(or rather it was very limited).The tier spread which is now +/-2 was +/-3 back then.

 

If my memory serve me right,in 6.5 tier 5 light tanks were added,and in 6.6 the E-100 line was added together with tier 9 medium tanks.In patch 7.0 or 7.1 we got the French tanks and the AMX 40 had actually good armor back then.

 

Are there perhaps any closed beta players still around?

I have played since the closed beta.

And after 8.0, it has only been a downfall of WoT.

You can see the older MM, old tech tree style (vertical) etc. on this video (not made by me) :).

Dunno what version, it was around September 2010.  There were only 2 nations, only 2 tier 10 tanks and you could meet a Maus in your PzIII.

 

Seems we got 0.5.5 in the October.

 

Other differences - no physics, you could hang your tank over a cliff but not drop off.  No pushing wrecks so you could block bridges with light tanks.  Blocking someone into the corner of a map then dying was a valid tactic to take a higher tier enemy out of the game.

 

No way to buy gold - you were given some each day, if you saved for 17 days you could buy 1 month of premium so converting exp was limited.  Gold ammo was only for gold so not something you would squander it on very often (unless you drove VK3601H).

 

Panther and T-44 were top tier mediums (both tier 8).  Hummel and SU14 were top tier arty (tier 5 and 6), ISU-152 and Jagdtiger were top tier TDs (tier 8 and 9).  Most feared tanks were A-20 and VK1602 Leopard because they brought the arty rain with them and due to tank warping were virtually impossible to hit.

 

And both EU and US players used the NA server.

I started in june/july 2011. So it's something like patch 6.4 or 6.5. Don't remember correctly.

 

Kind of funny to see what is changed/added to the game since then (tier 5 lights, tier 10 meds/tds and arty, other nations (FR, CH, UK, JPN), physics etc.).

I started back in closed beta. Don't know which patch exactly it was back then. Free gold and if I recall correctly higher exp modifiers. Also Maus vs Tier 1s.

Good times. :glasses:

 

Still have the shitty Sherman for closed beta testers. :P

15th May 2011, Patch 0.6.4

 

A long time ago, I vaguely remember things like immovable dead tanks, a load of hype about the new tier 8 arties (of which one was my first grind attempt....still not there - I'm at M40/43. Longest grind EU?) plus the introduction of tanks I wouldn't see on the battlefield for at least a year, namely the Löwe and the KV-5.

 

So, not quite a beta tester. I managed to get a Tetrarch though, thanks Italeri models!

I started in 8.4 I guess, so physics were there, mediums and TDs went up to tier 10 already, but arty was tier 8 max.

0.8.3 - Arty was outclassing everything, with "scout-MM", was crowded in tier 6 and above. LTs everywhere! Think 15 ELC AMXs in one battle. Malinovka Assault. Sandriver Assault was completly flipped. Fewer maps. Westfield Assault with base in SE-corner, glhf braking that defense. Add that I had no clue how to play this game.
