New graphics - awesome;

New sounds and music - awesome;

New effects - awesome  (one bug though, when shooting at water, like sea or lake, nothing happens, shots only get absorbed by water);

 

New Optimization - PERFECT!

 

Running on Ultra settings with constant 40 fps with instant loading of everything - no delays, no freezes;

My setup is Intel® Core™ i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz and  AMD Radeon ™ R7 370 Series @ 8 GB RAM;

Other than flattening maps and graphics, are there any changes?

 

Vehicles seem the same, not sure what to look for?

I suppose I'm used to it after playing many hours on the cursed test server.

I'm actually feeling pretty positive about this update.

Played one game, with the Strv S1. Got hit for 280 damage with HE from Ru 251, knocked out all 3 crew members; game over. Never happened before, and I've taken plenty of HE hits. First and last game played today. 

 

But, I did like the look of Erlenberg. Only thing I don't understand is why the bridges were narrowed, as now 2 vehicles cannot pass one another. Did not try to ford the river though. Framerate sat at a nice 120+, no complaints there.

Happened to me with Hotchkiss once.

 

IT's pretty rare (I hope so at least)

Yep, I recall only one such case which also happened to be a French lower Tier. Might have even been that Hotchkiss, I believe it has only 2 crew members, or perhaps 3, so all it takes is some bad luck on a machine gun/auto cannon salvo. Been quite some time though, possibly years. So having it happen on the very first game today kind of made it a mood killer.

it's happened to me once - e25, got walloped by, IIRC, old T49. Only took a couple of hundred dmg, but crew all knocked out.

I think the new patch is a big surprise for everyone, even for WG. Usually, every new patch bought some unsuspected problems that screw the game for a few days or more. Now, it was not the case. Maps looks great, the game works perfect and even the music is a nice feature. Too bad WG don„t do a god damn thing about balancing stupid tanks like the Obj 430U and Obj 268 4.

Pathc was a massive buff to every russian tank.

 

And a huge nerf to anything that relies on gun depression and turret.

STOP PLAYING AFTER 60K, awful they menage to make all game unplayable with one update, pointless why? Very simple this is war game where you have to use brain and tactics not holywood movie with special effects I'm not interested in game looking good just gameplay (how playable and fun game is), always play on minimum settings because I canot see half things when I put graphic on high settings (i5 16gb ssd evo 1060) and I like simple graphic so I can see my enemy,LESS IS MORE! Just unistalled along with half of my friends, WG UPDATE FAIL!!! It was a good game and in case somone wonder I had 58 percent winrate, and just like that years of my time and money I spend lost with one update:( see U in some other game!

All in all they’ve brought the game into line with what it should look like. Way too early to say what the changes to the maps will mean to the meta but they look bloody good now that’s for sure.
Had one match where the graphics went nuts but apart from that smooth and great fps.
More interested in the new tree and upcoming balance changes but nice to see they’re investing heavily in the game.

Yes it all works quite nice.. There are the occasional bugs and load times have increased a bit but all in all awesome update. Beautiful maps.

 

I don't buy the claim that all maps have been flattened, but some have and for most parts I think it's there to reduce the difficulty of the maps and as a casual player I think that's a good thing. There are fewer 'holes' and more ridge lines from what I have experienced today. (Only played around 10 battles on 10 different maps which also was amazing)

 

First battle I load in 10-20 sec after the battle have started, but the battles afterword I get in there well before the timer runs out. I have I7-6700K, GTX 970, 16 gb ram and are using HDD for both windows 10 and WoT (Though they reside on different hard drives) Whats even better is that I still get over 100 frames :great:
