OMFG Highway is a pile of crap.

 

I would rather see Komarin or Port. :angry:

Haven't watched, but pretty sure it's just talking about Supertest stuff and the upcoming / running marathon specials and how "excited" he is about all of it.

Quick summary from skipping through it: talks about every buff on every tank, to get the videolength up, shows the pictures of highway in HD that I've seen somewhere else, and mentions the T25 marathon, doesn't even mention that you have to enter a code, he has a pinned comment about it though, completely useless video, so it's perfect clickbait

I like his channel and his vids. But he is bad at news vids because those are always late and old news. For wot yt channels I only watch him and Claus, sometimes Lemmingrush. I think I just prefer entertainment over info because info I can take from other sources better and faster than watching a whole 15 min vid.

The entering a code thing is total [edited], the event should have just started without any need for that

I didn't even realise a code needed to be entered till reading this thread so despite having finished the polish missions none of those will now count towards the sprint mission and I have now lost a quarter of the time available for completing it

Good news about Highway, on that map I could at least make my Skorpion G work, I hope they have added more bushes too around the river area, doing the crocodile never got old.

agreed.

 

But you missed out where he shows us the pilotless helicopters and jets. Doesnt mention that you cant see the crew of a Hellcat or Wolverine, but he does highlight the lack of crew in the aircraft that are just there to create atmosphere. 

 

Also he points out cats in various places. Those cute, fluffy little pussycats. So he cant be all bad.

Highway was on my top 3 most hated map list pre 1.0. I can't say I'm happy to see it come back. As the changes to it are.... minimal to fix the things I hated with it.

Highway was not the best map, but was very far from the worst IMO, Dez seems to think it is one of the most hated but I can't really see why.

 

Would much prefer to play Highway over Abbey, Mountain Pass, Mines, Ensk, Paris etc. At least there are options for most tank classes.

Looking forward to the pref mm buffs, 112 and the t-34-3 in particular just wish that the standard ammo pen was a little higher. Are these changes all planned for the next update?

The Type 59 is getting over buffed to absurd levels IMO, and I say that as someone that has one.

 

It recently got armour buffs anyway and gun handling buffs,now they are buffing the turret again, buffing DPM, buffing gun handling again and buffing mobility.

 

It'll be the best tier 8 medium before the pref-MM is even accounted for.

Are these not the changes pack from the PMM change announcement, that was withdrawn? So, rather old stuff?

Doesnt really surprise me about the type59, they did the same with the t44 100 made a decent tank a lot better for no apparent reason. Perhaps they plan on putting the type59 in some random loot boxes again perhaps :)

 

 

Do you think the type will be better than the t44s ?

I like my T44, fast and mobile, sometimes I even hit things, good news on the SP though i was considering selling it, I am told back in the day it used to be powerful, now not so much, I thought by now the PMM thing would have either occurred or be sorted out.

Can't stand his mumbling Bulgarian accent.

 

If you want early info check out the American dude Sahm.
