Hello you don`t see me often here, I just want to quickly show you the patch notes which are at the very bottom of the official news feed that you might have missed. In the video there are 3 main changes: Daily missions, Sessions stats and Ranked battles. Well I opened the patch notes and at the top there is a buff for wheeled vehicles... This is what it says: 

 

Wheeled vehicles can now turn at a larger angle when driving in reverse upon releasing the "Forward" key and holding the "Right" or "Left" keys. To take advantage of this feature, press and hold the Space bar (hand brake) together with the "Back" and "Right/Left" keys. This new feature will ensure higher maneuverability at low speeds in confined spaces.

 

Also the thing that they are balancing ranked battles in the way that there will be wheels matched against wheels and tracks against tracks, like cmon... they clearly know there there is something wrong with them yet they make them easier to use... 

 

Anyway this is all from my side, hopefully I showed you something that was kinda hidden from us. bb

Easier? It's a buff that only works at slow speeds in reverse if you have the "handbreak" on. Just like it already can do going forward. I doubt that chance is something you will see often, or will ruin all the games for you now.

I have whole EBR line and to be honest I am trying to do the U-turn quite often, for example tier X is slower in reverse and much easier to handle while driving forward, so in tighter spaces it will be easier to escape for ebr which was one of their biggest weaknesses. Also why isnt stuff like this in the video ? This is one of the 2 most discussed vehicle classes and players should know whats happening to them in my opinion.

Because its a minor change.

Do you remember the update which nerfed the arty around March 2019 ? There was whole dedicated video for it and you cant even feel the nerf nowdays. The nerf was so small that very small portion of players actually noticed it. That was a minor update in my eyes.

Well I’ve just gone from the 178 to the Hotckiss and the 178 pretty much drove as well backwards as forwards, but with the Hotchkiss I often have trouble backing into a safe spot because the backwards steering at low speeds is horrible. This will definitely improve the survival chances for wheelies and improve their close quarters combat manoeuvrability too.

A'ight then buddy, let's wait for the actual update to go live with that "buff" and see what an incredible difference it makes. I can't wait to read your reaction to the unstoppable OP menace they will become. Muahahaha!

You won't even notice it, it's just a QoL improvement.

Changes to the personal premium missions is interesting. Dunno if its an improvement or a nerf, but I guess we'll find out in time. 

 

Oh, and the Ranked MM being changed to match WV vs WV in stead of any LT tank is a good change imho. Hope the test goes well enough that it can be implemented in normal Randoms too...

I haven't noticed it Mentioned, but is any of the Ammo Rework in there at all....????

 

Had my Deathstar out this AM for a Drive, playing with Equipment Load Variations and I swear, I have NEVER seen so many 900 Damage Shots EVER with the AP....     It's a Base Ammo, Avg's 1150 with a Low of 800+ and I saw so many 900 and Change Hits with it...     I RARELY use the HESH because I'm Cheap for one thing, but the AP is just more Reliable overall....

 

But so many Low Rolls Back to Back to Back, seemed Odd to me....

Seeing as they are making this change it suggest they don't share that opinion.

I see it as more of a fix.  These WV should drive the same in reverse as they do forwards as they had two driving positions.  All this is doing is making them behave the same in both directions.

How much of the headless chicken driving in the WV's is a consequence of the lack maneuverability?

 

I would say plenty, because when I drive one i feel far safer going full speed in the open than standing still in a bush or a rock.

It was only small and unnoticeable if you're not doing the missions for them, the personal missions weren't adjusted even half as much as they should be making some of them virtually impossible.
