Supertest: Pawlack Tank (Initial Stats)

Coming soon to the Supertest is the Pawlack Tank, a Tier VI American heavy tank, the starting vehicle of the Yoh branch.

The Pawlack Tank is not technically a Yoh tank, unlike its higher-tier counterparts in the branch, this vehicle does not have a reserve track mechanic. The vehicle has decent mobility compared to other heavy tanks in the American branch. Its maximum forward speed is 45 m/h, and its specific power is 16.2h.p./t.

The main gun has a calibre of 90mm and causes 240HP of damage per shot. Penetration with a standard Armour-Piercing shell is 160mm, and 205mm with a special APCR shell. The aiming time is 2.4s, and its accuracy is 0.42. The reload time is 8.4s.

The thickness of the armour plates in the frontal projection of the turret reaches 140mm, and it is 127mm in the hull area. The vehicle’s durability is 950HP. The gun depression/elevation angles are –5/15 degrees, respectively.

The Pawlack Tank is a rather mobile heavy tank compared to its same-tier brethren—it has a relatively well-protected turret but unremarkable gun depression/elevation angles. You will still be able to play it using cover and on not-very-steep terrain, but you should always remember that your gun depression will not always allow you to cause damage from behind a hill. However, thanks to its mobility, the vehicle will allow for more confident position changes.

Sprocket – A Tank Design Game

An interesting find if you would like a different tank experience. Design WW1/WW2 era tanks yourself and test them in battle!

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1674170/Sprocket/

Gameplay:

Design tanks in a dedicated and intuitive designer, allowing the realistic armour mechanics that make tank combat so unique. Explore tank design’s challenges through WW1, the interwar period and the early, mid and late stages of WW2.

Please note: There is currently no dedicated tutorial. If you don’t enjoy figuring things out or you don’t know much about tanks, it may be worth holding off until better guidance is in place.

Hull & Turret Shape Design

Easy to use and flexible enough to give you endless design starting points. Drag on a face or edge to move it. Bigger compartments create more internal space but have more surface to armour.
Well angled shapes may bounce incoming shells off entirely, leaving only a scratch and several ringing ears.

Armour Design

Set the thickness of each armour plate, allowing you to block shots from your foes. Though the weight and space used adds up!

Cannon Design

Build a gun capable of piercing enemy armour. You’ll need enough space and force to rotate it. Make sure you save enough room for ammo!

Crew Design

Humans are light but large and quite essential, squeeze them in and assign them one or more roles. Cramped and overworked crew perform poorly.

Wargaming under DDoS Attack (RU)

RU4 was under a DDoS attack recently. WG sites were also attacked (forums, wiki, WGMods, premium store, and so on.)

“Since November 27, some players have encountered problems playing on the RU4 server: short-term freezes, loss of tank control, problems with registering hits, and even disconnecting from the server.

Devs have determined that a targeted and sustained DDoS attack is the cause of the problem. In this regard, they decided to disable the automatic login to the RU4 server. This means that players will not be able to connect to the server when you select the “Auto” option in the main menu of the game, but they can still log in there manually. Players can also continue playing if they are logged into RU4 right now, but devs strongly recommend that you select any of the other servers available.

Developers will continue to monitor the status of the servers and keep you updated on the situation.

Developers apologize for the inconvenience caused and wish you a comfortable and successful game! “

WoT – Clan Updates: Old Tags and New Maps

Source: EU Portal

Clans have been an essential part of World of Tanks since the early days of the game. Millions of players have banded together under one banner to conquer the Global Map, fight in tournaments, defend their Stronghold, or simply team up with like-minded tank commanders and have a good time. Forming your own community is easy, and everyone with 1,000,000 credits can create a clan with a unique clan tag, name, and logo. However, keeping a clan alive is difficult, and many who have tried have had to abandon their efforts for one reason or another. In the past, clan tags once used could not be reused, even after a clan was dissolved. This left a lot of great clan tags in no man’s land. Many new clan commanders have requested to revive an old tag, but we were never able to free them up—until now!

Are you not part of a clan yet? Start your search for like-minded commanders today!

Freeing Up Old Clan Tags

The reset will take place on November 29 at 07:00 CET (UTC+1).

For the first time on the EU server, we will clear the void of old clan tags. This means that over 25,000 previously unavailable tags will be up for grabs. Gems like HAPPY, SWORD, EXIT, GETUP, WP, PIXEL, SUGAR, VOICE, MOON, EXTRA, X-RAY, LOVER, or FREAK will be back in the rotation and can be claimed by anyone by either creating a new clan or changing an existing clan tag for 2,500 gold.

If you’ve been thinking about a new tag for your community, this is your chance. Download the list of possible tags and see if the one you desire will become available. But be quick! You cannot reserve a tag, and once it is claimed, it might never be available again.
