Let’s Talk Swiss again & QnA collection

9

Greetings everyone, It has been a while since i last talked about the Swiss tech tree and while it may seem that not a lot has happened since then, there has actually been quite some things happening behind the scenes.

-Scroll to the end for the QnA part

Now i really need this tree to get as much attention as possible, so please share it everywhere you can, be it the many european forums, the NA Forum, Asia Forum, Russian Forum or social media.  I am not allowed to say anything but maybe WG is very well aware of the tree and is just shelving it for a later date, and maybe when it gets enough attention we’d get a new nation instead of yet another Russian tier 8 premium tank, who knows 😉

For Starters, let’s talk about the Changes to the tree since last time. First one are changes to the Wheeled top tier vehicles, tier 9 and 10 mainly, Tier 9 will stay the Piranha I but instead of a 90mm armed turet it gets the FL-10 turret with a 75mm autoloading gun. Tier 10 will be the Piranha ARES which is a Piranha APC with a HV 75mm ARES autocannon. My idea about these top tier tanks is that they would bring something new to tier 9 and 10, until now tier 10 tanks usually carry at least 100mm or larger guns, tier 9 is generally 88 or 90mm or above, at least for a viable build, there are tanks with 75mms at tier 9 but those are worthless guns for the most part. However these vehicles would have 75mm guns with similar penetration to other tanks of the same role and tier. Look at them as the high tier variants of the AMX 13 57

Supertest News : Projet 4-1

12

Today we welcome a new French Tier IX medium to the Supertest, the Projet 4-1, with great dynamics: a top speed of 60 km/h and a power-to-weight ratio of 26.7 hp/t. As usual for French vehicles, it’s not a tank to push enemy lines with. It may have 120 mm of well-angled frontal turret armour, but only 55 mm of hull armour. As for hit points, it has 1750 HP and a view range of 380 m.

The Projet 4-1 is armed with a 105 mm gun that boasts several excellent parameters: a 4-shell drum, 390 damage per shot, a reload time of 4 s per shell and 36 s for the entire drum. The penetration of a standard shell is 264 mm and with an HEAT round at hand you can punch through 330 mm of metal. As for dispersion and aiming time, it is 0.32 m/100m and 2 s respectively – extremely good for an autoloader!

The Renegade Challenge:

How to Get the M54

Are you ready? From November 29 to December 9, the Renegade Challenge will be available in World of Tanks. There are ten stages with missions for mastery and commitment. Complete them and get credits, equipment, days of WoT Premium account, and much more. And most importantly, after you complete all 10 stages, you’ll receive the Premium Tier VIII heavy tank, the M54 Renegade, adorned in the unique ‘Dead or Alive’ style.

Sandbox: Rebalancing SPGs and Their Shells

6

Commanders, the Sandbox server will be launched on November 25 to continue testing the global shell rebalance, and will be up until December 9.

In previous iterations, we assessed the changes to all shell types for non-SPG vehicles. Now it’s time to move forward; in the upcoming version, we will keep all the changes from previous iterations. You can read more about them here, here, and here. However, this test will affect SPGs, another important aspect of the game that has remained unchanged through previous iterations.

Thank you to all those who participated in the previous test. The data we received and your perceptions have proved to be extremely valuable.

The new test iteration will include changes to SPGs.

In this Sandbox iteration, we will not change the parameters of the economy, Personal Missions, or the display of players’ statistics. We will get to them only after finishing the work on shell rebalancing.

Our Plans for the Test

Under the conditions that have been previously tested on the Sandbox, the parameters of SPGs became completely irrelevant. The results of the previous tests support this conclusion. Thus, they require changes. The main goals of these changes are:

WoT: Developer Diaries: Anonymizer

22

The Anonymizer will hide a player’s nickname, generating a new one with every battle. Do you suffer because your stats stand out? Are you tired of hearing “noob”? Or is your nickname so well-known that it just draws any and all enemy shells? Remedy all this with the Anonymizer. By using it, you’ll be protected from unwanted attention and enjoy your favorite game even more!

WoT: Supertest: Object 752

17

Today we are starting the Supertest for the Object 752, a Tier IX Soviet heavy.

An oscillating turret and a gun with an autoloader (a quite uncommon combination for a Soviet) are the signature features of this vehicle. The autoloader is a fast one: three shells, 2.75 seconds between shots, and 21.8 seconds for a complete reload. As for the other stats, the gun dispersion is 0.4 m per 100 m, and the aiming time amounts to 3 seconds. The basic AP round can penetrate 256 mm of armor, and the special APCR can pierce 318 mm. The gun’s one-time damage is 440 points, and the vehicle’s view range is 380 m.

The protection of the Object 752 is adequate for a heavy: up to 330 mm of armor at the front of the turret and up to 180 mm at the front of the hull. Yet keep in mind that there’s a weakly armored oscillating part behind the turret’s frontal plate, so you better engage your enemies at mid-range. Keeping the distance between your opponents and yourself is not a problem with a power-to-weight ratio of 17.4 hp per tonne and a top speed of 50 km/h. A gun depression of -8 degrees lets you use terrain folds to your advantage.

The Object 752 combines the aggressiveness of the Soviets with the cautiousness of the French. The dynamics allows it to take advantageous positions first, and its firepower lets it dish out lots of damage over a short period of time. Still the tank’s operator should think beforehand of a place to wait out the reload time (while covering the weakly armored parts). The key to efficient play on this tank is reacting quickly to changes in the tactical environment, while making use of the vehicle’s strong sides.
