Hello tankers! Anyone who has the time and is kind enough, please list here 2017 main game changes.

I've not played WOT for a year, and i don't know if game changes worth it enough for me to return to the game.

Seeing your attitude you're better off doing whatever you were doing for a year.

There have been a lot of changes in 2017.

 

Main ones are MM changes, arty rebalance, light tank rebalance including tier 10 lights, new Chinese TDs, new German heavies, lots and lots of rebalances to vehicles and about 8 new premium tanks added.

Main things that have changed this year is the Arty nerf, stun mechanics, LT changes and mission changes really. The last few patches have only focused on balance changes and line changes.

 

Now arty is a support class with a stun mechanic. Stun is decided by caliber, so low tiers don't have it unless they have a 150mm gun on higher. HE pen was reduced by more or less 50% across the board, HEAT and AP gold and normal ammo was removed, and most SPG's don't even have gold ammo now. And most high tier arty had a drastic change is max damage. Most mid tiers remained the same. Stun on mid tiers is 5 to 10 seconds, and 10 to 20 seconds higher up. Med kits can instantly remove it. You drive a bit slower etc when stunned. That and damage done to stunned target is basically track assist for arty now. So that's their main XP income.

 

Scout MM is now gone, so now all LT have +2 MM. Thus some got nerfed in a way to compensate for +2 MM. Like the ELC, that had +5 MM when it came, and thus did not need 250 gold pen for tier 5 targets etc. Tier 9 and X lights were added, some lights moved up a tier, like most tier 8's. Tier III got +1 MM, so Pz 1C don't face KV-1's anymore either.

 

There is also a 30 vs 30 mode for tier X, but it's hidden in randoms. So about a 10% chance to get it.

Not really. It's basically the same gun with less pen, and a shorter barrel. The alpha etc is the same. And 260 pen is more then enough still, as it's still more then just about any tier 8 TD. Tbh I hardly did notice much difference as the gun trolls as much as before.. both in a good and in a bad way.

 

But yeah there have been a few line changes to. The next few patches will focus mainly on balance to. So the Death star, or 183B is the next tank to be replaced with a turretless armored 123mm gun TD. Obj 416 line is getting changed, 416 is getting removed and the tier 9 and X will go down one tier and a new tier X will come. T-10 might get swapped to, and the SU-100M1 TD line is getting reworked to, and the tier X replaced.

 

All replaced tanks so far have been turned into a special reward vehicle. So basically anyone that had the Foch 155 of 215b got it as a free crew trainer.

Now you can't pen superheavy from the front, but I didn't noticed too much differences. I play it as an assault gun, and did usually well. I would have prefered an alpha or cammo nerf more than a pen one, buy this is what we got and we should adapt. :)

Now that I think about it, we now have reusable consumables. They got a 90s cooldown and you can use it again. And you pay for it the same using it 1 time or 100...

If you can't even bother to do a bit of research by yourself then why bother to play the game at all? You seem like you don't care much, that's why I said it's not worth it for you.

You're wrong. I've tried to read Rita Blog, and was a real pain, didn't find nothing useful for like 20 minutes.

Thak you very much Dava and Balcora! Very nice of you for listing the changes i was interested for.

Oh yeah, MM was changed to. Each fight you are in have one of 3 stages, either 3-5-7, 5-10. Or all equal tiers. 3-5-7 means that you have 3 top tiers, 5 middle tiers and 7 bottom tiers.  And then ofc there is the +1 games with 5 top tiers and 10 middle tiers, and the last one is ofc +0 games. As in all tier 5 etc.

 

Now this is both good and bad. It's good as it gives new players more of a chance with their stock grinds. As they don't face overwhelming targets of +2 anymore. And have more targets of the same tier to go by. That and tier 1 to 5 can only get 5-10 games as top tier, as tier 1 to 3 now is +1. So tier 5 will only see tier 4 at the lowest now. That and it removes the odd games when you got a tier 7 game with 29 tier 7's and you as the only tier 5.

 

The bad thing is that it has shifted the MM queue around. So tier 8 has suffered a bit for it, in terms of it getting +2 games a bit more vs before. And limited MM tanks getting +0 games more. And for the IS-6 that's actually worse. As a game full of Defenders and VK 100.01's with 220mm weak spot armor, when you have 217 gold pen is not ideal.

So, what do you think? You're gonna play again? Cause if you left because of some problems, they're still here.

But the problems, small or big, are the same for everyone but the way how you deal with it make you a good player or a forum whiner.
