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

4

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:

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

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.

World of Tanks Console November Q&A Roundup

3

Good day everyone,

Here is a quick collection taken from the weekly Battle Heroes segments of the World of Tanks Console site:

Will we be getting a driver/gunner view for replays?

Yes, we’re adding first person view to the observer cam in Team Training and Replays.

Some of us have racked up a large number of Premium tanks over the years, any thoughts on a trade-in event like in PC?

Interesting, we’ll have to ask the PC team how it went.

 

What’s the daily player count on each console (Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PS4)?

It varies depending on the day of the week and what promotions we’re running. The break down is basically 40/20/40 percent respectively for daily active users. Continue reading

WoT Console: Captured Tiger II

17

During yesterday’s surprise Swedish update, a new premium was spotted in the WoT Console website’s Tankopedia: A US captured Tiger II:

A801_PzVIB_Tiger_II

The entry was pulled pretty quickly do to the stats on the machine not being finalized, though from the looks of it, it will be a completely historical Tiger II. Whether it will stay at Tier 8 as it was listed or be dropped down a Tier like the historical Tiger Is remains to be seen.

Cheers to Rodent from the Status Report Discord for the historical image.
