Rocket Launchers in WoT?



WG was recently at the Tokyo Game Show 2016 and… wait a minute..?


Oh Hello!

I don’t know the full context of why this was shown but besides the fact that WG doesn’t just randomly puts things out at shows, especially when their CEO is around:

As recent as last week Murazor answered negatively to WoT following AW and WT footsteps by introducing  Rocket Launchers to the game with the response “Don’t you have enough arties?” but truth to be told, a lot that he says is a load of crap and ends up contradicting itself.

Also, WG’s staff has told me once IRL and right on my face that they weren’t paying attention to other games like AW (Never believed in such) and look now, in rebalance they are adding the Arty Stun charges which are a clear take from Armored Warfare.

Anything is possible…

I will talk with some of my insiders about this and see what I can tell you. 🙂

    I think this is just a show they have talking about the different stuff that has to do with tanks. As u can see in another picture they seems to be in the same show with a different tank on the screen, doubt it has anything to do with what will actually be in-game. Not necessarily random, just more ‘historical’ stuff to do with tanks.

  2. Mark Bevis says:

    Oooh, T-17 Whizzbang, the 7.2″ rockets it fired were so inaccurate that it couldn’t hit a bunker over 300m away with direct fire. Technically it can be used as indirect fire like a Katyusha, but with bad dispersion. Nice bang if it manages to accidentally hit something though. And it’s still a Sherman tank once you’ve fired all the rockets.

    Wot 2.0 the AW edition….

  4. cherweg says:

    IIRC it was mostly a Military advisor from GuP presenting. the presentation was full of all sorts of Shermans starting with the distinctions of the normal ones up to all kind of Prototypes,

    Also they Sponsored a new Series it seems

  5. Nigmata says:

    T49 152mm gun is a rocket launcher IRL.

    “in rebalance they are adding the Arty Stun charges which are a clear take from Armored Warfare”

    Except talks (and demands) of that mechanics are way older than AW.


    – it’s possible that the idea to stun the crew for 3-5 seconds when the vehicle is hit by a HE shell will be implemented when the HE shells are rebalanced

    • Shade01982 says:

      Were you privy to AW internal discussions on this mechanic before the game was launched? How could you possibly know when they first started talking about it in AW?

      • Nya-chan Production says:

        “How could you possibly know when they first started talking about it in AW?”

        I know for quite sure that if I hadn’t heard it, neither did people at Wargaming. This date is AW pre-alpha, meaning nobody outside of developers knew about the mechanics (and AFAIk it got polished during alpha/beta.

        Saying “WoT stole it from AW” is simply not true.

      • Shade01982 says:

        Well, considering it isn’t pre-alpha by that much at all, it isn’t very unlikely this was already discussed at AW HQ as well.

        Also, for the record, I never said “WoT stole it from AW”. In fact, considering how close the information is to each other, I think it is entirely possible the two just came up with the same idea at roughly the same time. It is just to close to make it more specific without more information…

      • Rita Sobral says:

        Shade, Nya-Chan can make some good points here and there and is the main reason I let him/ her around the comment section, besides that I believe people are entitled to their opinion. But this is the same person I once had to go full CSI and used Paul Barnett’s facial hair growth as a proof to debunk his/her fanboy beliefs.

      • Shade01982 says:

        That sounds bad :P…

  7. Mark Bevis says:

    The weird looking Sherman with 3 tubes in a fat turret is the T-31 Demolition Tank, 105mm howitzer and two 7.2″ rocket launchers. Probably not worth the extra turret frontal area for the two rockets, in all other respects it would be the same as the M4 with 105mm howitzer.

    Oh no Gaijin Entertainment got command on the WoT managers and are now ruining THEIR game!

    What did they do on ur face? 😉

  10. Laserguided says:

    I am all for more tanks even if they do weird things. Flamethrower tank would also be nice: you hide behind a rock, and shoot an arc of fire at open top tanks.

    This tank would be perfect to kill an O-I.

    • Uggala says:

      Since when is the O-I open topped?

    • Dexter5021 says:

      If you want to play with flamethrower tank, play Battle Tanks Global Assault, and you will see, that its completely useless.

      • Laserguided says:

        Thanks for the suggestion, will give it a try.

      • Ragnarokbazil says:

        Not useless at all its mostly powerful as hell.. In battle tanx the flamethrower tanks damage stacks every 0.2 second. At first it deals 2 damage then it stacks per tick it goes to 4 to 8 to 16 etcetc flame thrower tanks are deadly are close like to see flame throwers in wot! They ignore armor!

    • wolvenworks says:

      in theory, a flamethrower might be nice since tanks are metal, so you’re basically a giant cooking pot…but practically all flamethrower tanks have big fuel trailers behind them, and that’s basically a giant bomb if someone were to HE it since it has no armor…

      also, if you’ve ever tried/seen a car reverse with a trailer, you’d know that having it reduces maneuverability by a big margin since trailers are unpowered.

      all in all it might be interesting to have a giant tank cooker, but i’m not gonna be suprised when some retard from the EU/RU/NA bloc will whine about how hard it is to steer them

  11. TDMillard says:

    I see that WoWS is partnering with the High School Fleet anime. Probably a better match than Arpeggio of Blue Steel.
    Also when are we going to get some Girls Und Panzer stuff for WoT PC…

  12. CounterMAN says:

    Stun mechanic are cancer, seriously

    • Uggala says:

      Indeed. This would be especially lovely with 3-4 arties per team where one tank after another gets stuncrippled to death. So instead of dying instantly, you die very slow and very painful…. very much fun!

    • Ragnarokbazil says:

      Better be stunned and receive 250-400damage then to be one shouted for 400000000000 damage right?

  13. Shade01982 says:

    – “they weren’t paying attention to other games like AW”

    Except for the fact I indeed doubt this is actually true, it would also be very stupid. Always know what the competition is doing, that is Business Class 101…

  14. … LOL, lets make the game really exciting… add random landmines to the game.

  15. Worst Gaming on crack says:

    Great, more fukcing arty. Who the hell is running the rebalance and how much crack does he smoke each day. Arty and derp guns are one of the biggest problem in this game, so lets add some more.

    • Actually the gold ammo spam is 10x more worse than some random arties is imho. It’s so sad trying to play the nicely armored tanks like the japanese heavies when all the time the first thing you meet is gold ammo spam right off the bat. Like yesterday was playing my stock Type 4 Heavy in the bottom corner of Fjord map and then on the other side there’s an IS-4! that starts off with gold spam, not evne trying out normal ammo. After the gameranting on omg how do you think i could pene you otherwise…
      The point being, i had noway to get away from him shooting gold trough my toughest armors, when against arty i could atleast go hide behind cower.

    I think something as big as this would have made it to gamescom if it was true
