Tankers, 

 

We've got a host of exciting new features slated for update 1.7.1.

Today's Supertest kicked off with the new Soviet Dual-Barreled line starting at tier VIII with the IS-2 II and culminating at the Tier X ST-II.
 

IS-2 II

 

IS-3 II

 

ST-II



Additionally we're testing a new quality-of-life feature on Supertest: Equipment Demount kits. These kits drop randomly in the reward for merit and allow you to dismount one piece of Complex Equipment without paying 10 Gold. 

For more details and screenshots, check out the article on our news portal.

 

What do you think? Please feel free to leave your feedback below.

Quality of life improvements are always appreciated.

 

As for yet another Russian line.   Sheesh.  That tree is already bloated, though the Soviets did kinda throw anything into the tank R&D bin.

Domo, do the demount kits work for Bond equipment as well?  If they don't, pretty much the only time I demount anything is when I sell a tank....

But if they work on the enhanced gear, that would really be worthwhile!

I like the demount kits. I wish there were a similar item that likewise would let you train/transfer a crewman at 100% without spending gold.

yes :)  This would be great idea for bond equipment.... 10 gold isn't much of a reward?

I find the new line starting from the kv3 as noting more than a big "F" you.
Why would it NOT start from the IS line? (because ef logic amiright?)

The only (and even then still kinda dumb) thing i can think of is the kv3 has no branch off tree and WG is trying to make it "fair"

Another needless premium on the way.  

 

The equipment removal kits should be for BOND equipment.  That would actually be a worthwhile thing.

 

The tech line should have been released before the premium.

 

Really setting the bar for 2020

 

How about dropping 10 new maps this year.  That would actually be something.

Double barrels?  Think one of the devs drank too much vodka.

And the demount kits (if I were to ever get any in a merit drop) can't be sold either. So they can join the other piles of useless stuff in my depot that I can't/don't use but that can't be sold either. Yippee....(sigh)

Hey Dom, I know this has been brought up multiple times.  But, can you ask devs if they can make non-salable inscriptions, decals, and emblems, salable?

 

Inscriptions

PrimoVictoria, HEROES, The Last Stand, Bring the Heat, etc.

 

Emblems

Halloween 2017, Halloween, Meathead, Chieftain, Sabaton, etc.

They stated this back when they announced the doubled barreled line. they said the turret layout and the engine of the kv3 had more in common with the double barrel'd line than the IS2 did (for some reason) :amazed::sceptic:

Why is WoT even starting this stupid double barreled tank thing anyway? I know this isn't a simulation but up till now you have always sort of stuck to a certain "realism." This just totally wreaks that and the game. Hey let's add the triple barreled KV-2 from under our tree too! How about flying tanks too? I think you have forgot that this has for the most part been a historically based TANK game. One of the things that make the different gaming universes work is that they all stick to a sort of basic "rules of the universe". Sadly I think WG has lost that. :(

Its amazing when dev's drink too much crappy Vodka.....what will they think of next - hold on triple barrel tanks....ya that's it. Not that anything matters just new Russian lines not that any other line matters or how about some new maps? Drink the better top shelf Vodka less hangovers better ideas please.

Am I the only one that without a 3D model i a little wary of the T10 double barrel.  The IS-4 hull is pretty soft on its larger lower plate, and that cupola on the top looks rather easy to hit in brawling distance.  I think if both spots prove to be weak points it could make playing the tank a pain as there would be no way to hide both weak points while trying to deal damage.  That being said it'll be hard to say till we get an armor model and our hands on the tanks themselves.
