Soviet TD Changes: Update

21

Good day everyone,

Most of you remember our earlier post on changes coming to the Obj. 263 line. Well it seems that those changes have either been postponed or scrapped entirely. Apparently on a stream yesterday, Development Director Milos Jerabek agreed with players opinions that the decision to move the 263 to Tier 9 and place the Obj. 268 Ver.4 was a pretty bad idea.

The announcement has been received pretty well from the RU playerbase, and from the reaction in the comments of the previous post, I’m sure you all will be glad to hear it as well.

That’s it for now, everyone.

WoT Console: Volk T-44-100 and Verzila KV-4 K

3

Good day everyone,

Well, despite the World of Tanks Console team doing some good and offering long sought out standard versions of premiums for their actual base prices this month (including the Type 59/Patton, who’s “Legion” variant first went on sale over a year ago in November 2016) they just couldn’t resist slapping some paint on something an jacking up the price for it. So what do we have today?

The “Volk” T-44-100 and the “Verzila” KV-4K

Thankfully, they were kind enough to put a video overview out on this one:

WoT Console: Custom Flags

14

Good day everybody,

With WoT Console’s somewhat unexpected drop of update 4.2, there was little preview or fanfare to cover the new features implemented. So, despite being out for a day, here is a quick look at the new customizable flag feature for World of Tanks Console:

Flags are a new tab under Tank Customization, with the usual assortment of national flags:

WoT Console Update 4.2 Patch Notes

5

Good day everyone,

With a bit of a chaotic week preceding, WoT Console has launched Update 4.2, bringing Tier X light tanks, a tech tree for viewing rare premiums in the armor viewer, and a few other things:

New Features

  • Multi-Base Assault: new game mode featured in only five maps initially and currently only available in Team Training and Tournaments.
    • Ghost Town
    • Cliff – Winter
    • Mines
    • Mines Rain
    • Liberty Falls
  • Tank flags: Expanding our players’ ability to customize their tanks by adding Flags! Players can choose a standard flag or create their own.
  • Premium Tank Tree: displays all rare Premium tanks that are currently in-game. Look up the armor profile, modules, stats, see what’s missing from your collection, or just admire the tanks in all their glory.
  • Log Tab: You can now access up to 10 of your most recent battles and they are now saved across game sessions on the same server.
    Replays expire after 14 days or when server/major version updates are done and will show “replay is expired”.
  • “Detected” alert mechanics changed to “Targeted”
    • Removed the “directional” requirement. Now the alert will trigger no matter what direction you are looking.
