Love that you are finally including session stats, and I love the new ost of the reworked map. Any other maps coming back?

But its Average PR, not recent WN8....

 

Also, this is the least wanted mod to be added. Why not add a mod almost everyone wants? Like spotted status?

It's not as desired as spotted status but "least wanted" is a stretch.  It's nice to have this integrated into the game just like the tank carousel.  Not essential, but a good add.

 

And IMO I think they won't ever add spotted status outright as the directives now give you the ability to have it on every tank regardless of crew skill.

Looks like a great update!!!!!!

 

We still are having our PURCHASED boosters WASTED by lack of communication on launcher/within the game about server resets/mini-updates etc.....

That not what spotted status does..... It shows wiether an enemy is spotted (Never, Not currently, and Spotted).

At the top of the pop up box it tells you how many battles you played then if you click the "by battles" button it tells you under the battle performance tab how many where wins subtract one from the other, I know its not as good as some of the mods but its a step in the right direction

Will the Object 430U nerf be forgotten about again?

I'd really like to know what happened to this too. Is it postponed? Has it been cancelled?

I know how to calculate it... but that defeats the purpose of having session stats in the first place... since I can already count my battles played and battles won with out having this feature.

I see that the STB isn't getting its proper suspension.  It seems to me that you're severely nerfing the tank just to give it some worthless gimmick in the suspension.  Six degrees of gun depression is trash, especially for a tank that's supposed to "work the hills".  Sure, Soviet mediums can get by on six degrees of gun depression, but they aren't expected to play peek-a-boom on a freaking hill.  They have the speed and armor to make up for their limited depression.
 

I'd rather have the 10 degrees of depression all across the front and sides of the tank instead of 6 degrees to the sides and 12 degrees IF I'M STANDING STILL on the front.  I'm sure arty will love to watch me give up all my speed and mobility just so I can peek over a hill.  If you insist on making me stand still to peek over a hill, I'd better be able to do it from the side of the tank as well as the front.

STB-1 will not do what you are advertising it to be if you don't address the giant "HIT ME HERE"  cupola and driver's hatch/sides on turret / hull respectively.

 

You are advertising this tank as a medium to short range brawler/ridgeline so its comparison tanks are obj 140, obj 430u, Centurion Action X and the new UDES 15/16

 

none of which have a cupola or upper plate with sub 100 effective armour spots (STB-1 has horrible cupola and 3 separate spots on upper plate which are laughable, tanks.gg 1.5.1)https://tanks.gg/v10510ct/tank/stb-1/model?vm=live

 

Recommendations:

Give the cupola the Tortoise treatment

make the entire upper plate 80 not just the bottom portion.  Extend the armour model on the corners to match the visual model angles

 

must fix
