Hello!

 

Check out the new Dev Diaries going over the American Heavy Yoh tanks.  Are they ugly? Yes!  Am I still excited for more American Heavies? Yes!

 


Finally, something new that isn't soviet or a soviet knock off.  We are so tired of soviet this and that.  Now, whats the status of the Rexon Premium that was supposed to be released?  Thanks Jam.

I'm as keen as the next bloke to see new tanks introduced to keep the game enticing.

 

The problem with the YOH line is that all the tanks were built examine various concepts and ideas. Every tank was based on the same design; 105 mm gun, 5 inches of armour, and the same powerplant.

 

WG are going to have to really stretch the envelope of possibility when they find ways to have suspension, engine and other equipement to upgrade.

New vehicles for the American branch is always welcome.

 

However, HE mechanics got changed because it was "too unrealistic".

 

Now, WG is adding new sets of blue print vehicles in the game.

 

What gives?!?!

So when can I have my 380mm RW 61 mounted on a 50B? I'm sure someone thought about that when designing the latter.

'Reserve tracks' is the coolest thing happening to WoT since the version 1.0 update announcement but the real question here is, How do we convince WG to implement it on the AE PHASE I tank too?

Why does Minsk, seriously its beyond ridiculous, INSIST on making a giant cupola on US tanks?

What do you want, another tank that's invincible when hulldown?

So no time like the present to start the xp and crew grind.  I suppose 35-40k should do it off the T1. Chuck finally gets a tank to call home.  Which gun is preferred on the T1?  Never played mine.   76 seems to be the ticket.

 

Crew @ 42 seconds looks like Commander, Gunner, Driver, Loader.

Ok, I get it, these are some funky napkin-sketches and as per usual the new tech tree line needs a new gimmick. That's all well and good. But ugh, these are some ugly SOB tanks, and with some damn impractical engineering to boot. But there's a way to reflect that and give these things a unique flavor- make their turret rings unusually vulnerable. The tier 10 in particular, there has got to be some reward for shooting at those two little pipe-cleaners that hold up the entire turret. Not to mention that shells are loaded up into the underside of the turret through that gap. There has got to be some way to ammo-rack this thing by shooting at the gap while its loading. Alternatively, the devs could take some artistic liberty and show us what these tanks might have looked like had the engineers been given just a little bit of extra time to make their designs... functional.

I seem very skeptical about this, especially if they end up being impenetrable from the front and sides. More dabbing of the 2 key in the future perhaps? Or are there going to be definitive and hittable weak spots? 30% seems a little low for impacting speed, but I guess that depends on their respective speeds and power to weight ratios. Initial concerns aside, I think WG has a chance to make this work really well, and I can say I'm pretty excited.

Just more crap tanks for the USA, the world wonders why we do not see weird looking Russian tanks? Perhaps a little bias from Minsk...LOL.
