Eye candy on newer maps, no game play effect. Someone in the art department though it'd be cool and Serb rolled with it.

It's to remind you what the game used to be like with 14 arty per team, and to be thankful that it's no longer like that.

My graphic settings don't show the explosions, I only hear the sounds and it's weird. Like in the upside-down world ;-)

they are there to remind you the most dangerous shells you will take come directly from the sky....there is no armor protection against it, and you will have

your reload and mobility deeply affected for 15/20 seconds everytime your hit...

I'm waiting for the day that a shell will land on a tank. It will one day, or I will shoot one of those planes that over fly every now and then. 

I surprised that there's no rabbits. Given many of the maps are open fields there should be rabbits.

I am still waiting for the day that you make a thread (or post for that matter) that isn't whining.

There's a better chance of Fluffy congratulating WG on producing a well-balanced premium tank.

We used to have dogs and chickens but PETA took offence to us squishing them.

I can imagine why.

Rabbits have gone underground. They are secretly working for the WG map development division.

It's because some dev thought it would look neater if some stuff was destroyed or trees knocked over, but the art department refused to work on it.  So they got the map guys to install boomstuff that goes off during the countdown timer.

Simples.

Same here. I also often play without sounds. The trees just falling down by them selves on Malinovka countdown is hilarious.

I can't believe you are only pissed off for 30 seconds. Look at all your other posts, you are permanently pissed off!

If this is the only aspect of the game you don't like you are doing just fine and dandy:)

Still shows trees falling over, doesn't it? I like to imagine it's SerB slapping bushes and trees away with his rasp.

I was told, by another player so dont know how true it is, that this only happens if the game detects a player with a particular cheat that allows them to move before the countdown timer ends. Could be complete fantasy, but it would explain why it doesnt happen on every battle. Never seen a tank get hit, nor moving before the timer ends, so possibly just an urban myth, but I liked the explanation,

 

PS, Thinks got so bad on the open maps that us bunnies enlisted, as they say, if you cant beat then, join them.

Urban Myths or Truth??

 

I heard that on one of the maps if you hit a certain airplane flying over you got 30 days of premium.

 

Did you know that Wargamming also track the number of trees that you knock over in the woods.  They do and when you get to 1,000,000 trees you get 1,000,000 free credits.

 

No really this is what i heard.  :)

 

Good chopping and shooting  :B
