Commanders!

 

You have surely heard of yesterday’s article about double-barreled vehicles we plan on adding to World of Tanks soon? You’ve heard it right: today, we’re testing a dummy tank with two guns.

We are especially interested in the gameplay concept, not so much in the dummy vehicle itself. None of this vehicle’s characteristics should be taken seriously. It will give all of you (and us) an insight into what a double-barreled tank could look and play like in World of Tanks.

 

So, let’s break the ice and take a look at the first-ever vehicle with two guns (no, Franken and Stein don’t count) as well as its stats.

Lets make some noise....prepare your credit cards! New premium is coming.

From the wheeled meme to dual barrel stuff.

What is next....pay 200 euro and get Laser Gun t3nk? Nuklear Arty ? 

 

THIS IS BAD FOR THE GAME...DONT EVEN TEST IT! 

 

p.s. WG do what WG pleases  :)

Can we have the Chieftain Mk6 first? Real tank vs fantasy tank.

Well if you can actually balance this thing sensibly for the game  you have no excuse to keep the Chieftain out of the British tech tree

I'm guessing the translator needs some coffee, or weren't familiar with this new mechanic. Proper translation, from someone who knows WoT and the languages:

Translation problem, read 'Preparation time for a volley: 3.5s'.

in my opinion it's a bad idea to add those tanks... once people get really good with them, they may just turn into tanks which oneshot everything (double shot at ammorack)....

I can't wait to have it in the premium shop .... because if something goes into supertest, and it's soviet, it will probably end up there.

I mean ... it's not like you guys pulled the plug from under the IS-3A buffs before Xmas lootboxes, right ?

Modeling tanks costs money, you (WG) told us that .... you are not going to let the hull without use later on, this will be a premium, most likely for lootboxes this yr.

 

On a non-sarcastic note, 40k XP to IS-4, and i hope ST-II ends up in the game with the IS-4 turned into reward vehicle. :)

Or work in platoons of 3, watching each other's back, exposing for just 1 shot and delivering 2.

But that takes 3 players & tanks, not a single one. Not to mention that you got to time it correctly, while at double-barrel tank the timing is basically build in the tank.

Hello,

 

This is looking interesting I am not sure how you will balance it, like a platoon of 3 aiming at one tank that is 6 shots errn.

 

But as a mechanic yes, I cannot wait for the balance results, or the plans of how would you handle them.

What happens on ammo rack, will the barells have separate health pools ?

I think release of such tank would kill a lot of current non premium tanks which are suffering already because of slow speed, long reloads and low dpm or pen. In my opinion before release of such tanks, re balance should be made.

 

Thank you,

The sad thing is they don't care what you think. They only give you the news, they are not interested in any feedback.

Spot on, and they know that everyone want the most OP they can lay their hands on, trust me though, the tank will be crap, bad dispersion, loading times too long, inaccurate guns (please make them lasers) slow and ponderous, weak points everywhere, nicely pre-nerfed before release, but boy  boy the money will come pouring in still;)

There is already no excuse as the clan thing made it into the game...

The clan thing is not a Chieftain, it is a made up hybrid with an American tank, although

the Mk6 is in use on the Chinese server.

Yeah but they are not that different by stats. Yeah the Mk. 6 has a better Gun, but has FV4201 has better armor all around (regarding the current stats on tanks.gg)

But yeah that's another good point, the Chieftain Mk.6 is already in the game in china and on console and it doesn't seem to completely break the game there.

Anyway, they will do as usual, not listen to the community so whether we give our opinion or not these tanks once a so-called "balance" is done will be added to the game.
