Maus & Other German Super-Heavy Changes

24

Good day everyone,

Following the changes made to the top-tier Japanese super-heavies, the German line will likely be following suit, as part of an overall effort to refine the role of super-heavy tanks while trying to make sure they don’t over perform.

So far the only one discussed in detail is the Maus (though the Mauschen will be looked at as well). In short, it’s role as an armored fortress will remain preserved, with the only real armor changes being to the bottom hull, going from a very incorrect 250mm to its original 50mm.

WG Tankfest 2017 Q&A

52

Good day everyone,

At Tankfest this year, a few Community Contributors had the opportunity to ask questions with a couple of members of the WG NA team, discussing everything from communication between developers and players, overpowered premiums, and HD maps. Here are some of the key points of that Q&A:

–  Part of the goal with the Defender and the Chrysler K was to build armor back into the game. This was accompanied by several changes to other high tier, heavily armored tanks such as the Maus and Type 4&5 Japanese heavies.

– While the Type 4&5 heavies will see some nerfs with the Maus, the Defender won’t be brought back for sale for a long time. At least not until some changes are made to armor mechanics. Continue reading

WarGaming Authentication App

16

Good day everyone,

Incredibly slow news day, but a short bit for those interested: WarGaming has a new mobile app that adds a new layer of protection for your WarGaming ID account. The app generates a temporary 6-digit code that is used to login, in addition to your already existing password. The idea being that the rapidly changing second layer will drastically reduce the chance of accounts being hacked.

Steps:

1- Login to your WarGaming ID and enable two-step authentication.

2- Download the app and scan the code. Then enter the confirmation code.

3- When you next log in to your WarGaming account, enter the current 6-digit code from the app to confirm your identity.

WoT 9.20 Japanese Heavy Changes

46

Good day everyone,

Something news worthy on an otherwise slow day, changes to a few select Japanese heavies in supertest, apparently for Patch 9.20. Even better, the screens are in English!

O-I Exp.

Overall frontal armor will be increased, allowing it to serve better as a breakthrough heavy. However, its 105 will be removed and overall mobility will be reduced.
