I'm returning from a 4-year hiatus from WoT...

Apart from new tanks, what changed in the meantime?

MM puts you bottom tier 60% of the time.

Biggest changes? MM is now a 3-5-7 setup. As in you will face 3 top tiers max when bottom tier. Tier 1 to 3 is +1. So Pz 1c won't face the KV-1 anymore. Scouts have +2 MM so they can be top tier now. Some moved up a tier, some stayed, as tier X scouts were added.

 

Arty got all their HEAT and AP ammo removed. And their gold ammo now is HE with 1m more splash and that's it. Their had their HE pen cut in half almost, some got less damage, but a faster reload. So their focus is now support, not damage. As they get XP from stun assist now. Only SPG's with a caliber of 150mm or higher will get it. The exception is the Crusader SP, the is the only one with less that gets it. stun can be removed with a med kit.

 

And med kits and other consumables are now multi use. As in you can use it more then one time pr battle. It's on a 90 second cooldown. Cost the same if you use it 1 time or 4.

What OP needs to ask if whatever made him quit has been corrected, because chances are that if he's returning he's got some deep rose-tinted glasses on. Oh, and to not bother playing before 1.0 hits in a week.

Nice! Thank you

I like SPG's changes: i guess stun is crew less skilled for a short period of time?

I think i didn't like tier 9 games, so i stopped altogether.

 

Now i'm "relearning" the game, so i won't play last tier tanks for a while :)

I am now 4 years older, but still a completely broke university student, so nothing much.

 

Oh I did break up with my long time fiance like 3 years ago, so I guess that changed. Also I've grown to appreciate well made craft beers a lot more over the past couple years, a lot of it thanks to a friend who owns some stock in a local small brewery back here who has introduced me to some really tasty beverages.

Balance got worse than it's ever been and lots of popular features from mods got added to the game.

 

Other than that: literally nothing is new.

Oh, so not something in particular. I suspect T9 is kind of a speed bump for many. Not too sure why, it sure as heck isn't because there are more good players at the high tiers.

 

One tip in particular is to not play tanks that rely on armour; a bottom-tier heavy tank is more or less pointless, unless it can't pretend to be a medium tank. Important for overall enjoyment.

Sorry if I startled you.

 

The logic is that there is no point spending a week to relearn maps when lots are removed/reworked so soon. Also, since everyone else are relearning maps, he'll be on a bit more even terms than others.

Thanks for confirming the maps relearning bit.

Well, maybe some changes are not mentioned in this video, but still it's worth it to check it out.
