Landmine-laying LTs coming soon?

 

  • Object 430U is currently one of the strongest medium tanks, but it’s impossible to say when it will be reworked.
  • At the moment, there is no point in changing vehicles (rebalance) until after the next Sandbox iteration. After, maybe yes, as vehicles will change depending on the new ammunition changes.
  • Landmine mechanics is quite difficult and complicated to deal with. In the upcoming Sandbox, Wargaming wants to test it further and make it easier and more predictable. EDIT:

    The sandbox server will be coming in October, with landmine changes due for the second half.
  • At the moment, one of the priorities is the overwhelming number of battles with 3 SPG in one team, especially at Tier X.  Wargaming wants to reduce this number by changing the matchmaker. These changes have already been introduced to the live servers, where the matchmaker will learn how to distribute battles with SPG, between 2-1-0 SPG. The number of battles with 3 SPG should now start going down, but on the other hand, battles with 2-1-0 SPG should increase.
  • About light tanks, at the moment, Wargaming doesn’t want to limit them at all. For now, Wargaming is trying to teach the matchmaker to create more battles with 3-0 light tanks, instead of so many with of 8-5. Making the matchmaking better distribute the light tanks, instead of limiting their number, should have a better result.
  • New branches/tanks: Wargaming confirmed they are working on British wheeled vehicles and Japanese tank destroyers. (Harkonnen: I’ve mentioned earlier this year that Wargaming was working on British wheeled vehicles, seems we might see them next year.)
  • Wargaming is constantly looking into archives for new vehicles, potential new branches, etc. and good Japanese vehicles have been found for the new branch.
  • Japanese tank destroyers will be announced before they are launched as always, keep an eye out for information.
  • A branch of potential double-barreled tanks is already selected and ready to go if Supertest results are positive. (Harkonnen: As I mentioned before in my posts, the vehicles are pretty much ready, the Object 703 Version II has now hit Common Test 1.6.1 and we should expect to see these vehicles either at Christmas or even sooner.)

Well they have said several times that British wheeled vehicles is next if the French go well. Going by this I suspect they are... Happy with how it turned out.

  1. obj430u needs a nerf of the armor as soon as possible, this tank is really too armored on the turret and on the front, it has no logical sense even after the tier 8 and 9 preceding the tier X
  2. many vehicles have been requiring improvements for many years , yet the wg seems to have other priorities instead of treating the balancing of vehicles, which are really ridiculous.
  3. landmines? pure madness
  4. yes 3 arty in a team are too many, even 2 are too many, limiting them to 1 per team is the only sensible thing to do, even if those who play arty have to wait longer in the queue.
  5. limiting the number of light tanks and WVs instead must be a priority, too many games with too many light vehicles for each team
  6. perfect, now we will also have English WVs as if the French weren't enough. For the Japanese td I have no interest in them.
  7. a branch of double-barrel vehicles, interesting, but absolutely useless. Introducing new game mechanics after the nonsense Italian tanks and WVs makes more no sense.
  8. reworking the special ammunition does not make any sense, we have already seen it in the first interaction on the sanxbox server, the game was completely distorted.
    The only solution is to limit the capacity of special ammunition that can be loaded into the hold of each tank, but the wg seems once again to not care about such a simple solution.

it would make more sense to talk about machine guns and smoke grenades on vehicles instead of mines without any meaning in a game like this.

  • so 430u will be buffed with the gold ammo rework along with the rest of the RASHA!!!! tanks
  • landmines ? really, is that what this game needs 
  • wheeled brit lights will somehow be more useless then the tracked lights for balance
  • raid the napkin drawer for more vehicles
  • double barrel RASHA!!!! tank will happen irrespective of feedback or 'supertesting' because wg knows best, the player count backs that up obviously

and 2019 continues as a year of negative development :unsure: but it's ok we have dog tags and decals :great:

I don't know why they want to wait for the ammo balance on everything. When testing even a small cupola nerf "as in not making the cupola weakspot 1 pixel big" is not gonna change much if they do it now or after the ammo change.

Like let's add some bloody mines to the corridors because why not. And you don't like pushing that silly strong TD nest that can turn the outcome of the game at the end? Well congratulations, while the battle went on earlier and they had some downtime they planted a few presents for you. My imagination is only coming up with bad things.

WG has a real odd way to announce the news.

They tell you after they release the related update.

I take it the update is:

"No changes at this time".

The SandBox was a total disaster. They made a wrong wark on HP values of all tanks and not on the penetration of the gold amo. Why? Because they are WG.

So now we are waiting for wat? A new sand box to test new tanks HP?

 

New wheeled vechicles... ready for race... RaceWotnait! :great:

GG WG... exixte a B plan?
