More 9.19 Details

From the portal, which apparently updated not long ago.

Sound

We’ve heard many of you wanted a female voiceover, and 9.19 delivers on this request with an all-new “Commander” set of voice messages. This option replaces the “National” voiceover in the sound settings. Just flag “Commander” to enable voice messages that correspond with the vehicle’s nation and the gender of its commander.

The German VK 72.01 (K)

Back in 9.17.1, the German line welcomed the new Tier X heavy, Pz. Kpf VII. Unlike the Clan Wars VK 72.01 (K), the newcomer was equipped with the 12.8 cm Kw. K. 46 L/61. The two top-tier vehicles were extremely similar in appearance, which caused quite a backlash. In 9.19., the VK 72.01 (K) receives an additional loadout with spare chain tracks and an AA machinegun. This should stress the uniqueness of the reward tank that gets credited for stellar performance during Global Map events. The armour protection of the two vehicles remains unchanged.

Perks

Remember how you needed to recruit an all-female Crew to benefit from the Sisterhood of Steel perk? And how that is just the same with Brothers in Arms? Update 9.19 gets rid of this unfortunate complication by uniting these perks into one. Mixed Crews will receive a 5% boost to their effectiveness just as all-new and all-female squads do.

    Yeah well WG, remember how female crews have existed for over 2 years now ? And how a huge amount of players already dedicated entire crews of females in order to make SoS work ? And how this meant we were forced to use them on tanks that had 4 crew slots or less ? And how you are now fucking them all up ?

    And I guess it is useless now to hope for a compensation. Female crews were supposed to work in entire crews, now you’re completely changing how they work and instead of having to get a whole crew of females to make them work, it’s just “here have a commander amd you’ll have female voices”. Probably thousands of people would have organized their crew differently if they knew it was gonna end like that, just like thousands of people wouldnt have bilought certain pref-MM tanks a few months back if they knew MM was gonna end like in 9.18.

    What is this now, you’re so tired of your game you are trying to push people to leave it so you don’t have to admit you don’t want to keep it up ? Because if that’s the case you’re on the right path.
    You fucked up arty players, you fucked up people with pref-MM tanks, now you’re fucking up people who put their female crews on tanks by default instead of tanks they might have prefered ; keep doing that and there’ll be fucking riots in the community. At that point you’re not just shooting yourself in the foot, you’re going all in with a fucking machine gun…

    They were so similar, actually Vk and Panzer VII share the same model files actually :D

    Notice there is no Panzer VII folder in the german tier 10 vehicle pkg, they shares the same files

    So how come when I import the VK 72.01 (K)’s crash collision model into Maya it looks like this and not like on tanks.gg?

  5. They should let us pick the role and tank for the females we already unlocked. Reset if you like, but ofc keeping the xp earned.

    Ofc that would be the only fair way of solving it. We still need to find a new home for or old male commanders.

    1. Yep, a free reassign for girly crew would be good. I probably won’t use it if they do but I would have gone for commanders only if I knew I just needed a 1 skill rest of crew to get SoS/BiA working.
