Common Test 9.20, Third Iteration Improvements

7

Good day everybody, quick post on the changes going into the third iteration of the 9.20 Common test:

  • Marks of Excellence can no longer be earned in the Ranked Battle or Grand Battle mode. Battles in these modes have no influence on the player’s Marks of Excellence.
  • Fixed the issue with duplicating confirmation windows in Team Training lobbies.
  • Fixed the issue with camera binding to a destroyed vehicle.
  • Fixed the issue where it was impossible to disable the chat with allies in a Grand Battle.
  • Fixed the issue where a pop-up hint about the prime times of Ranked Battles was displayed on certain dates when switching months in the calendar.
  • Fixed the issue with the display of mission conditions.
  • Fixed the issue where the commander’s cupola was missing in a destroyed Tiger 131 tank.
  • Fixed some technical issues.
  • Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. D: Fixed the issue with the display of Inscriptions on the tank’s second turret.
  • Fixed the issue with the display of the hint about Premium Account discount.
  • Fixed the issue with the inability to switch to 1024×768 resolution correctly.
  • T-34-2G FT: Fixed the issue that caused strong rocking of the tank’s hull when braking.
  • Bat.-Châtillon 25 t: Visually adjusted the size of the tank’s top gun.

 

That’s all for now folks.

WoT Console: War Stories

Good day everybody,

In an interesting move, WoT Console has announced a new mode exclusive to WoT Console: War Stories, a set of alternate history single player campaigns that will be introduced at the end of August.

The War Stories that will be available from the beginning will be:

Future campaigns will include a German Invasion of Britain in “Operation Sealion” and the Cold War going hot during the Cuban Missile Crises in “Kennedy’s War“. Continue reading

WoT & Sabaton “Primo Victoria” (and Other Music News)

22

After being announced several months ago, we finally have the music video collaboration between World of Tanks and Sabaton. Set to the bands existing song, “Primo Victoria”, it’s as delightfully mad as you’d hope:

In other World of Tanks soundtrack related news, WG will also be collaborating with Japanese game composer Akira Yamaoka (whose previous work includes Silent Hill) to create a new soundtrack for World of Tanks, along side work with Sabaton. Continue reading

Tank Mechanic Simulator

Good day everybody,

Slow news day today, but seeing that we love all things tanks here, we have a trailer for a new project coming out next year: Tank Mechanic Simulator.

Cruising around in your SUV in searching possible sights for abandoned wrecks to recover and restore. Bring them back to you’re shop and restore them to their former glory:

Supertest- British Heavy Tank Changes

27

A few changes being made to select British heavy tanks, in this case, Conqueror and Caernarvon. Among the changes, it seems there is a possibility that Conqueror might be getting the Super Conqueror turret with spaced armor it the armor card is anything to go by (Super Conqueror at Tier X will have better soft stats and hull spaced armor however).

The overall goal here is to adapt the high tier British heavies to a more heavily armored and traditional role for heavy tanks, rather than the quasi-medium support role they have now:

Super Conqueror- Supertest Stats

39

Good day everyone,

Brief, but neat, bit from supertest: The Super Conqueror. In case you don’t know what this is, it is a British Conqueror with a historical spaced armor layout (the turret at least), the rendering of which we linked to a few months back. From the supertest card, it is looking to be a new Tier X. Whether that will be an alternative to the FV215b or some form of clan reward has yet to be announced in any official capacity, though some are saying it may be a replacement in the same way the Foch B replaced the Foch 155, with the original remaining as a special vehicle:
