Apart from giving you access to the Swedish lines, of course. Here's my take on it:

 

 

tl;dw: actually, not much is really changing. WG seems to have been playing it pretty safe with this round of balance adjustments. Some are welcome changes, others are clearly not enough. At least nothing has been nerfed.

First thing i noteced is that they broke the ability to see what kind of crew members a tank requires by hovering over it in the tech tree. At the bottom of the info window that would pop up, it used to show the number of crew and symbols indicating what kind. now...just the number of crew. I noticed this seconds into opening the game after update. I cant imagine how they did not.              ***correction*** i guess that was an MODXVM feature, because after reinstalling xvm i have the info again.

I like some of the prem tank buffs a lot. That alone makes the patch worth it to me. I don't even care about the Swiss tanks. I'm still waiting for Italian tanks.

In World of Warships when you're going through the tech tree, you can't see any information on modules or upgrades at all. You have to buy the ship to be able to see them.

 

Or go to the Wiki.

 

It's senseless why they do that, but maybe they're heading that way in WoT now?

I might seek having my Ravioli returned for the credits I sold it for with these buffs.  I'll be spamming even more of my premiums now.  Woooooo, credits!

 

FV 4242 buffs are welcome.  T34 also welcome (I'm a sucker who purchased 3 black tanks, so I have 3 doubles in my garage now) 

 

Just an all around good patch.

 

I still don't think I'll be solo playing again anytime soon, though.  And without a good crew, I won't be going up the Ikea tree anytime soon until I've weaseled away enough gold to 2 skill a crew for the heavies.

I just hope they didn't remove access to K1 on Serene Coast. Not a lot of people know how to get there, and I like to take advantage of that^_^

One I find interesting is the IS-3A repair cost being reduced by 40%.  It is has been a while since I have played it, but I do not recall the repair cost being that high.

They said they were going to buff the ripper patton armor, but they didnt.

It sill doesn't solve the problem of sky cancer and how it breaks the game. So good work Wargaming.... Way to tiptoe around the real problems with new vehicles, same old maps, and same old broken game mechanics.

For me personally this is one of the best patches in recent history. I own nearly all of the premiums getting buffed, and the 50b as well, and the Swedish tanks look fun too. The HD models were meh, I prefer milky's kv-2 anyways. Only bad thing about it, I Lost motivation to play the prems receiving buffs until the patch hits.

No 7201 buff or did they just forget it in the patchnotes?

Update  Q...

I thought I read somewhere that with updates you cannot play your old (previous update) replays...

This true?


 

Thanks!

You really don't know how to right-click on a ship in the tech-tree and select modules to view all the information on the modules you could ever want? Are you really that anti-WG that you can't even be truthful?
