WoT Update 1.9: release date

According to wotclue, the date of introduction of the new version on the RU server is scheduled for April 22. For this reason, two new mod folders will be created: ./mods/1.9.0.0/ and ./res_mods/1.9.0.0/.

The EU server should receive the patch the same day, i.e. on Wednesday, April 22.

  1. Wargaming hypocrites claim the following, I quote:
    “The Tech Tree interface will become more user-friendly, simple and clear, especially for new players. After its visual update and the relocation of low-tier tanks, it will be easier for everyone to navigate and calculate their optimal research path.”
    (source: https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/tech-trees-update/)

    So having proper balance has nothing in common with also being user-friendly. The 1.9 development team to date have NOT PROPERLY re-balanced these up-tiered low-tier tanks.

    All these tanks still have their original module layouts and module stats: like their top gun configs from the original tier. Which HAVE NOT been re-balanced to the new power level of the tier they have been moved to.

    A few examples:
    – The BT-7; with a tier 3 gun, with 53mm pen, as top configuration now at tier 4 mm. Or;
    – A-20; with the 75mm pen tier 4 gun VT-42, while the removed T-50 has the 90mm VT-43. Or;
    – The Covenanter; with it’s mediocre 63mm pen tier 4 gun, now a moved to tier 5 with no readjustments. Or;
    – The Crusader; now at tier 6, with it’s former 110mm pen top gun from tier 5!

    Oh, I almost forgot the new T6 Medium, guess what:
    it still has the 410 alpha tier 5 105mm derp gun, at tier fcking 4! Even with it’s abysmal dpm, it can still about two shot everything on it’s own tier and below!
    A 2000IQ decision right here!

    Fcking good job Wargaming 1.9 development team and Product Directors! Really top notch balancing here, especially and I quote: “…especially for new players.”

    This is the perfect shows their hypocrisy and their 2000IQ quality decision making capacity (Product Directors et.al.).
    And for whom do they claim to have done this…I quote them: “…especially for new players.”

    slow clap

    Ps. personally, besides the Covenanter, I have none of the tanks that are up-tiered. Also I’m not interested in those lower tier, but I AM interested in product balance, player and especially new player experience.
