Hello everyone,

after 5 or so years i finally came back to world of tanks, and im surprised how much it has grown! I was very excited to see some of my old favourites waiting to go out and shoot some more people. But, i also found some things to be very consuming, and i'd like to ask a few questions.

1.) What happened to my camouflages? Only a few tanks still have the ones i purchased on, and the important ones (like, IS-4) are missing theirs completely. I checked the customization section, but there are just 3x Camo's of each map type so i can barely equip ONE tank with camo....

 

2.) I heard there are a lot of changes to gameplay, e.g. Cover now works best if you are 15m behind the cover - is there a way to see what important things changed over the years, without the need to read every single patch note? Like, a comprehensive list of big changes would be nice.

 

3.)  What am i missing to be able to see web pages ingame (buy gold, check clans, supply tab) It keeps telling me "Data not available" while my friends can see everything.

 

Cheers

1. Camo was reworked twice and you should have your gold back, or camo in your depot depending how long ago you last played.

 

2. It's much the same as it has been since the game went live.  The change to what happens with bushes when you fire happened at the back end of beta IIRC.

 

3. Firewall issue?  The game has it's own web browser for these things which might be blocked by software firewalls.

Welcome back!

 

About question 1 can't really help you much. When the change came, I had just 2 tanks with cammo on, and both kept it as it was. You may try to check filters and remember that now cammo can be tranferred between all tanks that can mount it without costs and that just painting the hull gives you the full bonus (turret and gun are just aestetic).

 

For point 2, for all the details you should search for all the patch note. But since this is quite tedious, you may want to check WoT YT channle for a couple of video the released containing a quite fast recap of WoT history.

You only need camo on the hull to get the bonus, so spread it around.

Thanks so far. I couldn't find any issue with my firewall...  Weird.

Another thing that is weird is that my IS-8 is missing - and my stats for it got replaced with the T-10?

Lol yes a long time no see.

And then 277 was put after it, while IS7 went after another line. 277 was then to grind, while the new t9 b4 the IS7 was researched.

IS-8 and T-10 are the same tank. The name just changed during the Destalinization after Stalin death.

Any other anti malware software?

 

Did you update from your old client or do a fresh install?

Lucky you weren't going up the German tree.

 

I have a mate who was going for the Maus, was on VK45.02B when the trees got swapped, now has to drop back to the Tiger P.

The only question you should ask is... How to cure stress and blood pressure.

Not as far as i know, nothing intervenes. I will check again later on if i missed something. Its a complete fresh install.

 

*cough*

 

 

 

 

Techtrees are an absolute mess right now.

Gamechanges: Heavy tanks and armoured TDs are better then ever. 

Most maps favour heavily armoured tanks and TDs.

There are only a few tanks at T8-T10 that are worth getting if you want to play the best tanks at a tier (say 3-5 per tier). All other tanks on their tiers are way worse, often by quite a large margin.

 

IS-4 is a terrible tank right now for example.
