Watch there latest video or of course I time stamp it so make sure to pause to it.

 

 

If your wondering what that card said "Greetings, Tanker! We've known each other for many years now! During this time, you've proven that you can, beat the odds, smash foes, and stand your ground even in the most desperate situations. Let's celebrate our long-standing Friendship. Here's a gift (Maybe it's "from us" not sure) Forever yours Wg and Olga. Thank you for being here with us!"

What happened in Patch 0.7.0 that's a big deal?  The elevator flashes to it at the end.

While watching the video there's lot's of little details.

 

1)  Page at the bottom of things to do list has the phrase "Classic?" as in they hope it

becomes a staple of gaming in years to come.

2)  Patch 1.5 is coming and it's alluded to be either a big one or a hallmark.  Or both. 

3)  On Slava's desk (It is slava right.  Man I can't remember all these names).  There are 3

Documents.  One is titled "New Maps", another is titled "New Vehicles", and the last is "New

Hopes".  What New Hopes alludes to is a mystery as we already have an idea for some of

the new maps and vehicles through the supertest releases.

4)  The rest is pretty straightforward.  We're supposedly getting more credits, more bonds,

a return of the T-50-2 (Sorry but I personally hate that tank as I could never survive

encounters with it) as premium vehicle, and one last mystery for gifts.  But if you pay

attention you'll see SerB's nerfing tool.  Apparently he also picked up another along the

way after all these years..

I'm sure we'll see some of that.  For players like me, I remember how absolutely amazing this tank was...so if it's released as a total dog crap tier 3 then my memories will be harshly let down compared to my expectations of those memories.

 

So, I'm on the fence.  I want my memories of the amazing fun I had in that tank to come back...but a tier 3 for free...I'm skeptical if I'm being honest.  So, do you complain about a free tank...*shrugs* depends on how it plays out if you ask me.

 

Some might take this as a slap in the face from WG if it's released and is a totally bland tier 3 that turns out to be crap.  Why not just give us a different tier 3 and let the memories remain in tact.  This is ALL pee in the wind right now and well see how it goes...but if I'm being completely upfront about it...I'm skeptical and hope my memories aren't stepped on.  I'd almost rather have fabled memories of a fun tank that I'll never get to play again over getting a gutted tier 3 that will sit in my garage.  

 

Again, I have no idea how the tank will be and I'm just speculating.  I am excited about the thought of getting my 50-2 back but remain realistic of what I'm probably going to actually get.  Prove me wrong, WG!!

 

 

I think you missed the "non" part in "non-tier 3 vehicle gift".  So yeah, the whole point is that it won't be a tier 3 like the gift tanks usually are.  It will be higher tier, but yeah hopefully it won't be nerfed too bad like the MTLS-1G14... not that the MTLS is absolutely horrible, but they messed up how the gun fires so it is pretty bland and boring compared to what they could have done with it.  They should have made it fire quicker, if not simultaneously, without doing so much damage that it is OP.

 

But I digress... WG is giving away more gifts as usual, so that's cool.  Kudos to them.

I'm kind of left with more questions then answers with that response and was hoping

someone who was active at the time could answer it (Not trying to be rude).  The only thing

I could gather as majorly important is NA Server release, the implementation of camo

schemes, the replay system, and the release of Swamp in that patch.

The gun soft stats on the t-50-2 are roughly the same as MT-25 with a vert stabiliser. It's basically a faster MT-25 with the middle (in many ways better than the top) gun, and a free vertical stabiliser - so you get 3 equipment slots to use instead of 2.

T-50-2 is tier on supertest.

If you like the snipey version of MT-25 - this will be great.

I think I started around 8.0-8.5 so I'm just as clueless as you.

New hopes? Maybe they might finally get rid of scrubammo....

Essentially a nerf on reload and aim times for the Germans.  

 

Russian tanks get the buff.

 

Credit reductions for some arty.

 

The release notes indicate all the changes.  View range changes, model changes, ammo rack changes, gun handling changes, etc..  Didn't see any armor changes other than

fixes.

 

Also highlights some MM adjustments they are working on.

MAybe it will help against the armored car menace. It seems fast enough.

The link that was presented was from years ago, so non of those changes are about to take place...they've already happened.  Not sure if you caught that or not, not trying to be a smart guy.  

 

My comment about a possible German tech tree buff is because a lot of people think it needs one, and I agree, but more to the point was that patch was heavily geared towards the German lines...so I'm hoping that by dropping that patch number it's WG way of saying "we're gonna go back and look at the Germans again".  Wishful thinking, but here's hoping.
