Hello peeps.

Old timer here (like, beta access, type 59 owner level of old timer). Quit the game 2 and a half years ago, installed and played 2 games one night while drunk.

Saw some youtube videos today, felt like installing back. Anything particular changed in the last 2.5 years?

Cheers mates.

Uh.. there is no way that i'm getting it all and i'm not sure when all got released but.. HD maps/tanks, enhanced physics (you can roll over and stuff), arty damage got cut and got a stun (lowers the effectiveness of your crew for a short duration), french wheeled light tanks that zoom around at mid high tiers?  oh right, team damage just got disabled.. uh.. not sure what else there might be

Disabled team damage? They finally did it after all those years?

Yup, but as expected there are a lot more people coming on here complaining about physics abusers (pushing, blocking etc), haven't played in quite some time so i have no idea how frequently it happens though

The old "imma prevent you from playing". Still remember when physic was not implemented and you couldn't push anyone.

Things look a lot better but the players are worse. Welcome to World of Tanks.

There are a bunch of gold shooting stat padders that ruin the game. They have no life so they sit in their moms basements using only muscle they have, one that clicks the mouse. Game changed visually but player base is worse. Stats ruined it. Too many care about them, not the game.

Well, it actually does look quite fancy if you can crank up the settings https://worldoftanks.eu/en/one/ (check the release trailer too, the one in the middle, "quick" summary but doesn't show quite everything as it is a tad too quick and short)

Basically yes. They have tweaked a whole lot of things that have made some things different (like arty) that have created a new set of different problems (like arty). They brought in wheeled vehicles that are fun to play but that p*ss everybody off. You know the drill, the usual.

If you did mountain goating in the past, 1.0 negated that.  You can put your Camelots and Carabiners back in your pack.  Think you'll find the game play was more enjoyable on the less restricted maps of years past.

 

Speaking of maps, there is a Frontline mode for tier 8.  It's a lot of fun.  Give it a go.  Enjoyable for every line of tank.. Lots of maneuver room.  Duration is 1 week a month.

Then there is a Grand Battle mode for tier 10s on larger scale maps.

Biggest change since the beta days is that the aiming is now completely broken. Hitting anything now hardly depends on where you point the mouse, the server just makes it up I think.

They just polished the turd. Game still has all the same issues if not more. I better be careful what I say or the green-texted WG shill might climb out of his basement in Ohio to inform us all of how great this game is. :hiding:

Biggest two changes in the last 2.5 years was the great arty rebalance and the rise of the premium tank from crappy crew trainers to battle beasts. Not complaining of course because I'd rather buy my way to an enjoyable tank than have to do the grind. Otherwise its the same ole wot with a new coat of paint and some general mechanic tweaks you won't really have to worry about.

Try the Tanks.gg website. It's really helpful with armor models and stats of every tank. I think you should just play the game and come back here with stuff you don't know, instead of people trying to recap 2.5 years of patches.
