They look like good changes to me. Super Pershing's gonna be a BEAST.

Very happy about the zoom reset. One of the most annoying things about the vanilla client.

"Finally, Steel Hunter won't have its own progression system this year. Instead, you will earn Battle Pass Points based on your position in the post-battle ranking and by completing special missions in Steel Hunter. Enjoy playing Steel Hunter and boost your progress in the epic Battle Pass activity!"

 

Geez, I hope this doesn't mean they're eliminating reward tanks for Steel Hunter and Frontline. :unsure:

All great stuff. I especially like hitting Shift for immediate sniper mode. That is the single biggest issue for me when switching from Tanks to Ships and back (it's been in Ships for years).

 

But I hope we get an option to disable the previous game's results while in battle. The last thing I need is yet another distraction. I can wait a few minutes to find out what just happened.

SP and T-34-3 changes look like they may make those tanks viable again... looking forward to trying them out. Pretty much all the tier 8 pref MM tanks need some love as well. Make KV5 great again please.

couldn't exchange anything.   screen stayed the same

"Update"  it works now but the options are too limited.  

They need a option to see what the skin looks like on the tank before you trade "general" blue prints for it.

  Also i think it should have a option to trade "country" blue prints for the tank you are adding the skin too it instead of "general" only 

(example)  USSR blue print for the IS-3  tank you have and you want the 2D style for it .. i have more USSR blue prints than general and i am done with the USSR line

That's what I fear. I see no where that says you will be able to get a reward tank. I was looking forward to that but no vehicle will make this pretty much worthless now.

On the premium tank rebalance, it is nice to see some forgotten vehicles getting some love.  Although, I think some non-premium tanks could also use some buffs.

 

On the interface improvements, I love everything that I see.  Having the team HP bar will be a great improvement for battle info.  However, I don't see anything in the video that extends this to clan battles.  Maybe something to do in the future.  Adding the spotting indicator on the team list is another great addition.  Battle results in game is not really something I need, but I suppose some people will get some enjoyment out of it.  The sniper zoom preset wins the medal for "things I didn't know I wanted."  Overall, great work on these interface changes.  Maybe pursue something similar to the battle hits mod in the future?

 

On Steel Hunter...honestly, this is a mode that I want to love, but the progression system in it is just absurd.  The First Episode of last year was actually enjoyable for me because people could complete the progression by completing missions, which is especially beneficial for players who are not as strong.  Then, the later episodes just flushed that playability down the drain.  Ironic how the progression was made harder to prevent "grinding," yet the changes made the grind significantly worse.  My recommendation: fix the progression in this mode, or bring back Frontline, which was much more enjoyable.

 

On Blueprint Exchange, I think this is a good change; more freedom to the players resources.  I doubt I am going to use this much (if at all), but I definitely know people that will use this change extensively.

 

For the proposed changes, I think there is a lot of great stuff coming to the game, and I am very much looking forward to it.  There are a few catches here and there, but overall, good work.

There are no tier 9 reward tanks for SH and FL this year.

I tried to install the Common Test 1.12 via https://worldoftanks...public-test-w5/ "Getting Started" Section and the link    sent me to a blank page for a second and then sent me back and nothing happened. Please fix this.

That's a bummer, I wonder if they'll have a different way to get them this year.

Everyone here being like "The Super Pershing will be slightly less slow! It'll be viable now!" lol. No it wont... it'll still be trash, it'll just be less slow trash. Biggest winner int he changes is the STA-2 which alreayd has a really good gun thats gonna just get better.

 

All the interface improvements are great! Slowly pruning out mods that I normally install. Love it.
