WoT 9.20: New 60 Player Mode

29

With news from 9.20 coming out, we have a bit more info on the latest go at a 30v30 mode, this new “General Battle” (yeah, that’s probably just an off translation) will apparently be variant on Random Battles. Here are the basic rules:

  • 60 Players: 30v30
  • 15 minute battle time
  • Tier X only
  • Victory Conditions:L Capture the enemy base or destroy all enemy tanks

Matchmaking

  • Players will be drawn from the Random Battle queue
  • Tier X vehicles only
  • The occurrence of the new mode will be largely random
  • The new mode will be enabled by default for all players, though you can manually disable it in the same manner as the other game variants
  • Each team will be further divided into 3 subgroups of 10 each (cannot be manually chosen, this is determined by the matchmaker)
  • The composition of each team is still bound by the new MM 2.0 rules
  • Each subgroup will try to be matched as equally as possible with a subgroup on the opposing team
  • The number of SPGs per team will be limited to 4
  • When matching up platoons, there can not be a difference of more than two players when matching platoons between both teams
  • If one player in a platoon has the new game type selected, then it is possible for the platoon to be queued into the new mode

9.20 Balance Overview

21

Good day everyone,

WG has released a balance overview covering all of the tank changes we will be seeing in 9.20. However, rather than repeat things we’ve put up already over the past month or so, we’ll provide links to those articles and note any new developments, you may even like a few of them:

USSR

So far no major changes from the previously released info

Medium Changes

Heavy & Tank Destroyer Changes

The heavy changes will likely continue in the future, as WG wants to further distinguish the IS and KV lines, bringing back the KV’s old role as well armored damage dealers.

France

First update: After reviewing the test data and feedback, the Bat-Chat 25t will remain Continue reading

The Average Console Player, How The Meta Differences Matters and Why None Of Us Speak For Them

11

Good day everybody.

As part of our attempt to gather a variety of views and opinions from the World of Tanks Console playerbase, we’ve reached out to one of those in our Community Contributor program

By Jackth4Rippa

So I’m gonna start this off by saying that I DO NOT speak for the average player, as much as I maintain any ability level is achievable by any and all, I am aware that at current I am above average. But I don’t think personal rating, winrate, WN8 or any other form of generated number tells you about the person behind the controller, whether keyboard and mouse of a console controller. I make these points because I want to disassociate skill levels from the term average, and myself from it being claimed I consider myself to be among the core playerbase.
