Do we need to re-download an installer, or connect with previous Test version for auto-update?

I liked Swamp, but I can understand Komarin.... even that map wouldn't have been TOO bad had you added more topographical features to the defense sides of each map to prevent so many artillery deaths in each teams area (the defense side overlooking each other's base capture points).

The mini map base indicators are still too big, and the tank indicators are still too small. There was no mention of that changing at least somewhere between what 7.4 offers and what 7.3 had. 50% reduction in the base marker, and a 50% increase in the tank markers on the minimap make the most sense here.

Will the submitted list of ST'ers be implemented for testing of the Super Pershing and Dickermax on this 2nd test?

NICE!!!

And platoons chat is EXCELLENT. There should be an option to toggle it on so automatically i "chat" in platoon chat (if I desire).

Cheers.

Whoa, removed Swamp and Komarin?  I don't get it.  I know lots complain about Komarin, but it's not that bad, and I know of nothing at all wrong with Swamp.

Duration of battle in Attack mode reduced to 10 minutes;

This is kind of a head scratcher for me. Prokhorovka is now going to be an absolute nightmare for the assaulting team....

Favorite part: Parameters of premium TD T34 returned to those in 7.3
Even WG admits that they nerfed from a Heavy into a TD LOL!

First, what is the "premium TD T34"? Should that be "heavy"? Was the T34 supposed to get nerfed in 7.4??? Does this mean that it was supposed to get nerfed in some way, but they withdrew the nerfs, so the T34 will remain the same? T34, not T-34, right?

No nerf is coming. Overlord (EU Q&A) stated that the change on the test server was a mistake. It will remain a heavy w/ the current parameters.

Well... IIRC, they lowered the RoF for 7.4 test 1 even more...

One thing to note... they called it a Premium TD T34... even THEY admit it behaves EXACTLY like the T30 which is now a Tier 9 TD.

Change the icon to a Triangle and finish the conversion... it plays like a TD, it acts like a TD... it excels as a TD if you equip it like one.

So can we get a list of the maps that still are in the random rotation for assault and encounter? The number of them seems to be steadily shrinking and I hope that more do get added back in at some point. Also, 10 minutes seems like way too short a time for assault, especially on some maps.

Okay on the 50. But the 51 is the very same Lorraine 40t. Why...

I enjoy the fact they moved over the guns on the Tier 5 TD of the French that's going to save a lot of experience...
Even though I will still Elite it. XD
