  1. Always good to see more mountain goating spots being patched out. Also I’m curious about the exact changes they have planned for the second set of personal missions if they’re making them easier.

            1. This is kinda retarded, if 0.01% of the world population assigns that meaning to a simple number, you censor it for everyone? Where does it stop?

              1. Welcome to Germany where every Nazi related thing is banned without any questions, becuase it’s better to deny the history!

                1. funny how they get sensitive to all kinds of crap, but when you call a snowflake out on circumcision to appease a superstitious magical sky fairy, they come back with, “but but it’s more healthier, hygenic”.

                  don’t put ur care bear BS on us males, thanks!.

                  its genital mutilation of another human being without their prior informed decision or consent (most cases), end of story.

                  Condolences to all those men who were mutilated at baby age, and have a 14% or so reduction in sensitivity in that area.

                  STOP genital mutilation NOW!.

      1. Because “88” is a three digit number, isn´t it?

        Your parents will love how you show your education.

  2. Woooow i thought they were going to give the tier 2 wheeled tank to everyone during the chaffee event the Scum bag supertesters dont need anything -.-

  3. IMO this is another useless patch, you’re adding another new line of vehicles while more than half the lines that exist are useless.

    But thats what sells I guess.

    1. People wouldn’t bother with the missions if there was no significant reward. And as far as a classic heavies go, there’s not much to do to make them interesting and stand out from the others, apart from making them stronger.

      Maybe if they introduced a wheeled vehicle as a reward it would be worth getting just for the sake of novelty.

      1. aha so impenetrable armor for standard ammo is not OP anymore in this game
        sorry…f2p players still exist here and they have exactly 0 chances against this idiotic design

        dont know…maybe i should call it P2W not OP…since IF YOU PAY YOU DONT HAVE PROBLEMS AGAINST IT ! right?

        1. Yeah, great armor that tank has, works very well against derp guns. Oh wait, it doesn’t. I honestly think that retarded HE is a bigger problem than “gold” ammo overall. And you can definetely pen front of the 279e without “gold”, just not all the time.

          1. aha…just show me where please
            and no, cupolas are not the way because you simply wont hit them with a decent chance due to their size

            1. TDs can pen the upper plate straight up, everybody else can pen upper plate if 279e is angling, not too bad.

              1. thats same thing with…flanking
                when he angles….fk off please…and TDs..? Thx but main competitor for a heavy is another heavy…so tell me please how can i fight it with another heavy

                  1. there are only 2 tanks (at tier X) wich are designed in that imbecile way…ALL others have minimum 1 weakpoint, LFP in most cases

                    those 2 exceptions are Type5 and Maus

                    so thx but no…thats not a valid argument

                    1. Why? Other tanks need to angle their armor ar hide weakspots. 279e can’t hide anything and can’t angle and he can’t just sit in front of you all the time, I think that’s fair enough. At least check the armor model of the damn thing before complaining, ffs.

                    2. saying this is just like saying IS7 UFP is weak because when yo angle it can be penned…but….is IS7 weak???
                      fck off

    2. You do realize that those 279e missions are basically as difficult as many of the missions we had for the defunct rampage mode? Only the top 1% of players will ever get the 279e so its impact on the game isn’t worth crying over.

      1. since we have that option with orders….i dont think so
        you just need to complete 1 of 4 missions and thats it

    1. The gold round nerfs are being met with quite a bit of backlash and I hope they’re not implemented as it would completely destroy the balance of the game.

      1. You know what is destroying the balance of the game? The power creeped super heavies that you can’t pen with same tier tanks for the front without dabbing the 2 key.

        Should just reduce the RNG on regular rounds and remove special ammo altogether, while making actual hitable weakspots on todays rolling bunkers…

  4. Aren’t they going to put the tier VIII wheeled vehicle up for sale to the general public? I thought that was standard before adding a new line.

    1. Usually but its not like they’ll always do it and I’d imagine they will sell the premium wheelie soon.

  5. Finally it’s been almost a year since they released something that could be fun/game balanced improvements. Those extra fps and the new wheeled vehicles will be interesting.

    1. The way they described it it looks like these extra FPS will be for people with already powerful machines, who don’t need these extra FPS to begin with. Hopefully low spec players will benefit from the changes too. But I wouldn’t hold my breath.

            1. I can’t give you a link because of the spam filter, but if you search for “Found a bug where the sniper mode cam is offset way lower on the Pz. VII than the bore of the gun” on the WoT subreddit you can see a demonstration of the bug.

      1. The sniper mode view is below the axis of the gun which was supposed to be fixed in a micropatch recently.

        People are reporting that it wasn’t fixed.

  6. So the improvements to the Chimera I think is pretty good, the thing is pretty bad as it is, but the gun-handling buff to the Objekt 297 is questionable in my opinion, the improvement of the armor I still understand partially, but a heavy needs no 0.36 accuracy, especially no soviet heavy who fights in frontally in short ranges or hulldown posiotions.
