Good day everyone,
Been a long time since we’ve posted a real World of Tank Console (sorry, “Mercenaries”). Quite a bit has happened, which I may cover in a more in-depth article at some point soon, though it’s with the confession that I haven’t touched the game since April, mainly because I’m someone who wants to play something with tanks and not armored clown cars. That said, some things are worth coming back and writing about…
For those of you who don’t know, WoT Console has decided to focus most efforts (that aren’t porting PC assets) into the Mercenary theme: tanks and commanders based around a Mad Max style continuation of WW2 (but without any of the interesting aspects such a scenario could bring. It’s mostly an excuse to put a punk-rock aesthetic to a game that never needed it) and has been met with, at best, mixed reception from players. However, their most recent addition has raised a few eyebrows. Mercenary tanks come with unique commanders with a full backstory, which isn’t the worst idea really, but this is something special (taken from the WoT Console mobile German language site and translated):
Once again, time to see what madness WoT Console brings to the table (it’s nothing too surprising for those of you who’ve been keeping up with the game) except that some actual PC content people have been asking for a few years finally made it’s way in! So lets see what we got:

Good day everyone,
Been a while since we’ve covered WoT Console, the last big news being it’s addition of “Mercenary” content (Because why add what people ask for when you can just make stuff up?). Three months after that update Console is going all in with the Mercenary line, and some balance updates that the community has been waiting nearly a year for. Was it worth it? Let’s look (Note- WoT Console only sees fit to do huge balance changes once in a blue moon, so the Tank Changes are reserved for the end do the large amount of them):
Mercenary Tree Additions
Eight new Mercenary tanks and commanders are being added, looking about as good as a T29 mashed with an IS-2: Continue reading
