Anyone know or care to speculate why M.10s would be considered bad at cross-country in Italy?  Apparently the British/Canadian AT troops preferred the cross-country performance of the Archer!?  (Per this document I just got from the Tank Museum)

Lack of torque down low, perhaps?

Figured out how to block that crap in my router's URL filters instead of in my firewall software.   Can see where the game is not happy about it, but unlike with the firewall it doesn't crash.

 

That's good.

Relatively narrow tracks for a high ground pressure?  The M10 had .941 kg per square cm, while the Archer had .72 kg per square cm.

Well I don't know about you, but I find my huge, throbbing tank masculinity becomes shrunken and impotent when faced with anime tanks.

God damnit Bungie, their attempts to fix the Destiny 2 API broke it completely.

 

The inventory/vault management system in the game is godawful bad; I just can't play the game without an inventory management app, which isn't working because of the broken API.

 

Me calling them Bungle is not a typo (BUNGLE vs BUNGIE). It is deliberate.

They can't seem to get anything right.

 

Well, it's working now, so whatever they did wrong they managed to fix.

You  can get the Edelweiss or Nameless, or both.  If you're on the Asian server :)  I don't think The_Chieftain is in favour of those two tanks appearing on the NA server, though, if I remember correctly.

One step closer:

 

https://www.reddit.c...odels_added_in/

 

WarHammer 40k tanks. Added in the new micropatch. Edelweiss will be on NA. SoonTM

 

EDIT: Read more here:

 

https://worldoftanks...fers/warhammer/

 

How long before people try and hand wave these tanks as being different from the Valkyria tanks, despite them not being all that different?

 

EDIT2: This is more than just two separate tanks... these are custom style sets. That are applied with the customization system and that load custom models. Buying the KV-2 gets you a preset style that when applied turns the tank into the Warhammer tank. The BDR is just a preset style for the tech tree tank. This is actually bigger than just another copy of the tank... these are the first two tanks outside of tier 8 premiums and tier 10s to support the full preset style system, meaing paint, camo, inscriptions, emblems, rather than just the rental camo preset.

 

But beyond that... this new system for loading custom models could be used to eliminate permaskinned tanks entirely. One tank, when bought that also comes with a preset style for the skin, instead of 2 different tanks. No more Object 252U and Object 252U Defender, just one Object 252U with Defender preset style. This could even probably allow WG to remove the permaskinned versions that already exist and give everyone who bought them the normal tank + a preset, if they so desired, without running afoul of legal issues.

I've been saying "one day" for many things in regards to this game. So far I've been thoroughly disappointed.

Yeah yeah, can get them on the Asian server. Don't think they've been sold since the initial sale.

 

As much as I love The_Chieftain, I don't care if he is not in favour. He should suggest things to Minsk that the players wants even if the animephobes are against it. It is beyond stupid, stupid, that WGNA decides to have some "integrity" after being so adamant in wanting to sell the pre-order vehicles. 

 

WoTNA is not growing nor is it even stable. WGNA and WG as whole need to step the frack up because I sure as hell don't want this server to shutdown. Not when WoT has an arcane net code which allows pings to heavily dictate gameplay. Not even a host state rewind mechanic. WG has spent so much resources to put lip stick onto this pig. It is time for them to work to bringing this game to modern levels mechanic and game wise.

Those naysayers can just say those are cosmetics additions to current vehicles so different from the VC tanks. Personally, I feel a bit meh with those vehicles. Reskins of a Tier 5 and 6 is just boring.

 

The only objection to the VC tanks that has any solid reasoning is balance. The Edelweiss is quite balanced. It is the Nameless that is the issue. It is not so bad balance wise but it is just an outright superiour Tiger 2.

 

But I bet WG would be all lame and just would use the same cosmetic items to make the Panther 2 and Tiger 2 into the Edelweiss and Nameless. Or worse, the Panther 8.8. and VK 4503...

If they can make cosmetic skins for tanks and label them as non-historical, everyone can have their cake and eat it too (don't want to see them? set that flag).  That'd be great.  I sympathize with feeling like you might get a worse tank as a result, though. 

 

And, well, the 40k stuff is here, so they might as well do the Valkyria Chronicles stuff as well.

Looking forward to seeing what they do with it.

 

 

If I were currently more interested in gaming in general I'd probably be playing this.

Welp, pointed out that it is hypocritical for Wargaming NA to allow the Warhammer 40k crap but no the VC stuff in the official announcement thread for the 40k crap.   Expecting to be shouted down.

The W40K stuff are just re-skins of existing tanks and the VC stuff isn't. As somebody that enjoys driving a KV-2 getting a premium version? Yes please.

I'm disappointed they didn't go full monty and add actual 40K tanks to the game, like the Leman Russ and:

Tempted to buy the thing. Although I think it is way too much for a Tier 6 premium tank even if it comes with a 0 skill BIA skill. Plus I don't want to give WG too much of my money already.
