Good news for fan of tanks in the small and annoying variety, seems the ELC will keeping its 90mm gun.
With the 90mm equiped, turret traverse will be limited, equiping the 75mm will permit 360° rotation.
The 90mm will recieve appropriate changes to fit in the the new light tank balance.
Good day everyone,
A few notes here regarding WGs thoughts on the latest Sandbox results:
In the first stage, WG changed the shot distribution within the aiming circle, this was an an attempt to curb the amount of ‘lucky’ shots at weakpoints and critical modules while on the move or not fully aimed in. In that aim, the change was succesful, medium tanks did 20-25% less damage than on the live server, with heavies and TDs seeing less damage done as well. The amount of ‘lucky’ shots also saw a considerable decrease. However, it also negativly affected shots by players who were stopped and fully aimed in, so it has been decided that this change will not move to the live game. WG will look into alternative methods after further reviewing. Continue reading “Sandbox Test Results”
