Dear Players,

For our active participants in the Storm Your Brain competition, we've changed the structure slightly starting from this issue onwards. The winners of the Storm Your Brain #35, Rayjones + Ruslanbear14, have been awared 500 gold each, congratulations.

Please welcome the newest member of the newsteam familty, OrangeDemi! OrangeDemi is our new cartoonist and will be producing a cartoon each week. Whilst we're on the topic of cartoons, the Loltractor Chronicles, which we have all been missing, will be resuming soon. It was abruptly stopped due to computer issues unfortunately.

Guys and girls, I know you all love reading the newsletter, but we could use some more regular helpers to keep it going! And for those that don't love it, well here's your chance to improve it! If you are interested, the information is available here.

Wishing you a great week!

The KV-5 has so much armor because the R2-D2 in the front produces an Electro-Magnetic Anti-HE/AP HEAT/APCR Ion Plasma Shell Deflector Generator that will bounce everything unless you take out the R2-D2 first.

Congrats RayJones!

I'm guessing that my addition of subsequent posts with revised answers (to avoid editing the original post) must also have been counted as "editing", even though technically I got the rest of the correct answers just before you did. Next time I'll read a little more carefully, make sure I caught everything... and I'll probably end up 3rd.  :lol:

Ooooh, Jumbo Sherman after 0.6.6?

Awesome! Now I can finally do something with this 80k experience racked up on this M4A1! Also looks like the T1H can be skipped, now - that's great news!

Q: Is it possible to make queue longer (even up to 1 minute) to give matchmaker time to make proper teams (filling all above rules) so everyone is happier because of proper team line-up?
A: That's not necessary.


I call BS lol

Q: Are there any plans to prevent games with large amount of SPGs in them (more than 3-4 artillery per team)?
A: More likely [it will be limited to] 4-5.


UMMM you need to limit to 2 per team, im starting to think you guys don't take the problems seriously.


Q: Why does the matchmaker tanks balanced by their tier? 2 KVs are no way near as good as an IS-7. Nor would i rather have a BT-2 and an IS-3 than an IS-4.
A: It does not work this way. Moreover KV (unplatooned) can't get into the same battle with IS-7.


I hate to say it but i have been in a KV in same match as a tier 10 a couple of times and was not platooned. I usually like these Q and A's but man im seeing a lot of well...not smart answers that are borderline lies. :/
Come on guys you can do better than that.
