Public Test of 7.0. Finally!

The public test of 7.0 update has been launched which means we are one step closer to its release. Below is the changelog for the upcoming major update. In order to take part in test, visit the respective WoT website and follow the instructions there.

World of Tanks v.0.6.7 - 0.7.0 patch notes:


Main changes:
- Added system for working with multiple game servers (multi cluster technology).
An extremely important feature which is the heart of 7.0 update. It creates the basis for future merge of global map and server selection.

- Added tank horns. Default key for tank horns is “H”.
25 gold per horn. Test mode of horns, haven't decided on them so far.

  1. Awsome update! Lots of nice new stuff. Just a quick two questions:
    Q: Can you give us the exact degrees of new shell normalization? How much has it been changed?
    And also
    Q: Do the "ears" on the E100 also include the rest of the "police bar"( ie the part on top of the turret) or just the parts sticking out the sides?
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  2. So the T29 and T30 hitboxes were changed, but the T34's weren't? That's weird, considering... And no T28/95?

    Are you really going to make horns gold consumables? Seriously? Just suspend their use when someone hammers on it.

    T29's ears? Finally... I imagine a lot of people had wished for the E100 to have one of the two turrets people were debating, rather than the third one we actually got that no one wanted.

    So after the poll where a majority of people complained about team damage from ramming, you MULTIPLIED the effect? Is it April 1st already?

    Been waiting for the camo/binoc notifier ever since the game was released. It's so confusing for new players.

    The new sounds should go a long way, but keep in mind things like "added sound notification when the gun is fully aimed" will probably get very tiresome, considering how often that happens.

    Good update in terms of cleaning up a lot of minor nitpicks most players have about the game.

  3. Bob,

    A: It was a slight decrease, a few degrees.

    A: No, only the "ears".

    ReplyDelete
  4. Amazing update!
    Q: how much the size of the new update?
    i hope its less than before like 200mb

    ReplyDelete
  5. Eli M. ,

    It's the first revision of 7.0. Of course it will be polished before being deployed to the main servers.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Death,

    only full 7.0 client is currently available. ~2.5 Gb.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Q: is the "box" version going to come with a choice of which tank you want? So on the cover it will tell you which tank you get or when you enter the code in will you get a choice?

    Also I still have yet to see the retail version where I live.

  9. Q; What is "vignette" mode? Some sort of hyper detail mode...or something?

    ReplyDelete
  10. Q: I noticed that it is possible to "burn" replays of battles. You could write it and what you can use it somehow? (I have the files in the folder "replays" *. WOTREPLAY)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Q: Could give details about:
    - Added the notification about the impossibility of the tank selling at reaching the vehicle selling limit.

    - Changed the mechanism of the thinnest armor search at land mine damage

    ReplyDelete
  12. Overlord, for how long will the test be open?

    ReplyDelete
  13. How do i change from russian to english!?

    ReplyDelete
  14. The game client closes every time I join a battle. It's a bit weird since the regular client is working and I've had no such problem.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Wow, thats great buff for T29. But its good move. Dying after being shot only in ears was strange. I only worry that now T29 can be really OP.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Overlord can you explain this.

    In our blog its say this.
    Quote
    "- Added 7.5cm conic gun for Tiger (available for both turrets)."

    On the website it´s say this.
    Quote
    "- Added gun 7.5cm conic to the both turrets of Tiger tank. - this implemention will be present in this test game version and will not be added with the final v.7.0 update."

    What is right?

    ReplyDelete
  17. hi overlord
    i have a question considering the testserver
    why cant i sell tanks or anything else on the testserver is this a bug or should that be like that

    ReplyDelete
  18. For anyone having an issue with the client quitting to desktop during battle load screen:
    Do not use any mods for the game.

    ReplyDelete
  19. "- Some maps got animated birds added."

    Fuck yeah!!! I hope they will be on Komarin. At least we will have something to do while camping. :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. I heard e50 and e75 got buffed - if this is true... ARE U FRKING CRAZY?!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Overlord, is there going to be Fog of War and locked tanks after clan wars in 7.0 or 7.1 ?

    ReplyDelete
  22. when can we finally sell tanks on testserver ????

    ReplyDelete
  23. Cant wait for all the nice things you have planned for us. thx for keeping us updated Overlord! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Please add an option to choose 3 maps where you do not wish to play

    ReplyDelete
  25. Q about tracers:
    - what is when the spg-gunner is zooming in? does that mean just the target tank can see the shell?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Reticle mods and OverTarget doesn't work...Why?

    ReplyDelete
  27. my game just quits every time the map finishes loading...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Public Test of Update v.7.0 Started

    I downloaded almost 3GB some russian client! There was no information that test is only on russian client FFS! Are you mad? No everyone read those bushes!

    ReplyDelete
  29. English language pack/patch would come in handy Overlord.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Let me help Overlord a bit

    FOR THOSE WHOSE GAME CLOSES WHEN THE MAP IS LOADED - Disable your addons, then turn them back one by one and see which one is causing the issue... (For me it was the addon which shown HP, and exact damages.

    HOW TO CHANGE CLIENT LANGUAGE TO ENGLISH - Start the launcher, select a random language, then set it back to English, it should work.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi overlord,

    I am just curious, I see the various double and triple colour camo...but could not find the adaptive one?

    Cheers,
    Xerv

    ReplyDelete
  32. Slightly reduced normalization for AP and ACPR shells.

    what does that means? what normalization means?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Can i propose an improvement still?

    It would be great that u can chose the type of shell in the countdown time... so that u are loading the preffered and dont have to lose the first second to do that (if u dont forget at last xD)...

    Could it be possible?

    Thx for all! Nice improvements!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Q: Can we get a more precise list of changes for the following items in the changelog?
    - Fixed a number of bugs in tank models
    - Reworked tank hitboxes
    - Adjusted view ranges and ammo rack hit points for tier 7, 8, and 9 medium tanks.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Love the new graphics. If everything goes smooth, I guess the full 0.7 will arrive on beginning of December, right ? Any chance you will change T34 as a xmas present at least ?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hmm.. so many new features that are impossible to test in Russian :D No idea where the new minimap settings are, couldn't you atleast post a screenshot with some translations? :)

    I know there's some trick replacing LC files, but wouldn't the english 6.x files miss the new menu texts?

    ReplyDelete
  37. This comment has been removed by the author.

    ReplyDelete
  38. OK, I tried to rewrite it, but I am not able to find the right words. I REALLY hope, that the nerfed turret armor for T29, T34 and T30 won't stay.
    I just... I don't get it. 178mm of armor? The turret of tanks which got no hullarmor? (well, T29 has pritty good armor for its tier) I would really like to know the reason for that decision.

    Besides that: Good Job and thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Guys, I played on test server last night, so i can answer a few questions above:
    - Horns colst 25 gold per tank and not super annoying because there is a limit on how often you can honk and its not too loud in the game.
    - Unlike previous test patches this is a full client so you just install it into new folder (no need to copy existing WoT install first. Unfortunately this also makes download huge.
    - Many fancy mods currently no longer work and will cause game to close. Don't install them yet.
    - Normalization means how many degrees the shell can turn when it hits the angled armor. Reducing normalization means the angled armor will get bouncier.
    - To resize the minimap use = and - buttons. It will remember size for next game.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Overall i can say the new update is pretty nice. Code optimization definitely noticeable. Camos are nice but expensive. Horns are cute but useless (not as annoying as expected). Minimap improvements are awesome, from re-sizing to proper makers when people request help or support. Base cap siren is loud and very intense (needs separate volume control IMO). Good stuff!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Overlord, any info on how exactly HE damage is changed?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Major Russian Buff, shell normalization, OP IS7, OP new premium russian TD in all catagories better than maxed StugIII, the only reason why they buffed the Stug a little bit. KV5 major buff. Just because Russian tanks are #1 suicide rushers in 90% of the PUGs. That's christmas for the i***ts. Hey yoiu ruin your car a Ford and your insarance company hands out for free a new cadillac. I was hoping the new camo is negating the use of mickey mouse skins, no not so, they are still visible. Crappy patch, I'm sorry. But You'll gonna see me a lot less

    ReplyDelete
  43. T30

    http://www.abload.de/img/shot_0356a8hm.jpg

    left test server, right new.

    ReplyDelete
  44. anyone else cant retrain crew to another tank?
    if i have crew from previous tank in next tank crewmember stat wont open, if hes in barracks all his stats are empty and shot textField etc

    ReplyDelete
  45. I know you guys aren't really into re-releasing premium tanks. As a purchaser of the numerous Tier 5 and down tanks it would be VERY cool to be able to purchase the PzII J, BT-SV and MTLS-G14. Would be money for you guys and there not unbalancing to the game. I collect tanks in my garage, i am sure others do. I came late to the game and so these tanks which aren't reward tanks aren't available to players like me who collect the models in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Overlord, I wonder where is that option to buy all skins for a tank and then game puts automatically one that is most suitable for the map you are playing on?

    And horns, it sound weird, I thought you won't put them in game?
    Well, since they are here, will there be a General Lee Horn sound :)

    Another thing more, since this is already little customization of tanks, are you considering possibility for players to upload their own skins for tanks (and horns) in exchange for credits or gold?

    Cheers...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Why can't i sell tanks in the test server ? have no gold to buy a new slot - do u get daily gold ?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Yeah SOOOOO would buy the PzII J, BT-SV, KV-220 and MTLS-G14. Under what conditions do you get a chance at the new SU and Hydro?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Q: Im very off topic here, but just throwing it out there.

    Are the British tech tree, well under construction yet? Im suggesting the Tortoise SuperHeavyTank (as the US; T28/T95) would be a must for tier 9 British Tank Destroyer.
    //well, how could you have missed it, but just saying, in any case =)

    left test server, right new.
    ------------------------------------------
    What are you saying here? the test server shows turret armor value of 279, and the new patch will be only 178?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I really like the idea of a sound for base capture

    ReplyDelete
  52. WHERE ARE GAME MODES? There were going to be 3-4 different types?

    ReplyDelete
  53. @ Leisure_Shoot

    Ooops, typo(sort of). Nope. The current testserver value is 178. The old/current server value (not new) is 279.
    And 17mm of armor in the back of the hull for T30

    Since things get changed while the testserver runs I really hope, that the american heavy line will not get nerfed that hard.

    ReplyDelete
  54. How are the stats Overlord?

    Nerf more US Tanks, buff rest and soon noone will bother with ur game except ur comrades!Continue that and noone will ever post here again!

    And never comment on things u don't have any idea, like the T30's "slightly decrease" -sic- of accuracy.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I cant belive this... is something like first of april in russian?!

    ReplyDelete
  56. U don't need to believe it, it is NOT final.

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Glad- you're given 15k gold to start...not sure how you can have none.... IF you patched over the Russian text you can't sell tanks...there is a daily limit on tank sales... Hope that helps.

    @pol- Really, the developer shouldn't comment because he has no idea about things? lol, get over yourself. I'd say the devs know more about the game than you.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Is the Test Server broken?

    I cant login anymore :S

    ReplyDelete
  59. Same, I can't log into the test server. Overlord, is it down?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Personally I get a "not a 7z archive" error every time I try to run the installer.

    ReplyDelete
  61. It's strange, I can't get into the test server. I see I'm not the only one having this but less then 24 hours after it coming online it's down?

    ReplyDelete
  62. I appreciate the irony here: Gold purchaseable horns and increased penalty for damaging teammates.

    ReplyDelete
  63. An update, maybe? But seriously, why would it be down?

    ReplyDelete
  64. @Gank
    Thank's m8t - reinstalled after i patched it to english - all is good now..
    @Overlord
    Your'e team is wrecking this game - sort it - T30 is just horrible what the hell are u doing to this tank apart from really p---ng people off to the point they leave!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. No idea I'm hoping an update. Yet why update this soon after though? THat's what's weird.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love the fact that you can now remap your controls.

    Will the alarm feature when the flag is getting captured be able to be turned on/off?

    The custom Camo is nice,but as its been pointed out,its also very expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  67. mainserver is lagging like shit today!!!
    in every match players complain up to 5 seconds!!

    first day where i dont have to work and able to play all my tanks once and than this..THX !!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I suspect that the servers are sipmly being hit to hard. Log out and give the server a lighter load for a while then try coming back in. Some of us can't even log in.

    ReplyDelete
  69. @OVERLORD May we get specifics on the hitbox changes? I saw the M4 Sherman on your list -- what will change? Also, I like the new notifications!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Hmm.. Here's a suggestion. For those of us that use custom skins, could you add a little check mark in the options that allows us to choose whether or not to see camo skins?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Can anyone actually get into the WoT Test server? Also can you guys get into the normal server?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Servers are down, not expected to be up by tomorrow morning. This is official, confirmed by tuccy.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Concerning T30 series of american heavy tanks, their armor values seems to be the same as in 0.6.7, it's just a matter of hitbox overhaul. It's said that turret front armor displayed now is the armor of actual turret. Previously gun mask thickness was included in this parameter. And about the rear hull armor of T30, it's said that it's just a bug.
    The information was confirmed by Storm from WG, on russian forums.

    ReplyDelete
  74. @LtTearGrant

    Normal servers are working, test server is down due to an unexpected crash.

    Confirmed here: http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/65593-public-test-of-v70-update/page__st__500

    ReplyDelete
  75. Overlord, please tell me the changes to the US heavies were some strange typo? I spent a lot of time grinding the US heavies, and now, just before I'm reaching the T30, your nerfing their only strength, the turret?

    Or is it because of the new armour classes, and is there some extra layer of protection not listed in the stats?

    ReplyDelete
  76. We need English language in BETA!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Question. You say that the Panzer IV Hydrostatic won't be purchasable after release. How will we acquire it? Because I really want one.

    ReplyDelete
  78. "- Quitting the battle leaves the tank in battle. In case it was not destroyed during the battle, it is automatically destroyed when the battle ends."

    I think this is way too nice. It must be much more painful. Such that you got banned in 999 minutes when you leave a match for no reason, like a player chicken out in a match. Personally I think it happens more frequently now and this must be stopped, otherwise people get bored of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Love the shoot effect, especially with a muzzle brake. Also i have 20 to 60 FPS on live game, 7.0 with full FSAA I had min of 35 fps, awesome job ! Now you better hurry with 7.1 !

    +Q: British tanks are gonna be in 2012 right ? which Q ? =)

    ReplyDelete
  80. - Fixed rare bug with reticle's horizontal jerking when switching to sniper mode.

    This one was not rare at alle and it occured everytime i was sniping near a house.

    - Fixed rare bug with ubreasonable decrease of Pz IV traverse speed.

    Do you want to marry me? :D

    ReplyDelete
  81. Nice amount of improvements. Looking forward to the actual release. However I noticed two, from my point of view crucial things.

    The hitboxes of the American M6 heavy tank and the German E75 could use a little rework imo. M6 will often times take no damage, but just be tracked if hit with an SPG (talking GW Tiger here, which should blow that thing up). As for the E75: I feel that it is somewhat random whether or not you penetrate it. Its lower hull is harder to penetrate that its upper hull, you will eventually penetrate the turret from the front, other times you won't. Shooting it from the side depends on how high or low you hit the hull.

    Q: Are those going to be looked at or not?

    ReplyDelete
  82. From my experience, the T-59 still is a bit overpowered. Even with my Panther two fully upgraded it is a challenge to kill, while they mow through my HP like hot knives through butter. Even when I snipe them for a good half the map before coming into contact with them, I still struggle to kill them.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Dear Overlord! Just two questions for! The T30 tank nerf like how long? Just because it has always been funny, weak armor reduced http://www.abload.de/img/shot_0356a8hm.jpg the vote was not clear to you that this is the weakest tank? Now that sure is a Tier 5 level tank is shot with a laugh! Bust this tank should not be too small to reach a minimum level of the IS7. With even more incentive for people to lose the game!

    Next question: Jagdtiger frontal armor of any tank that can penetrate. I understand that the lower shell 100 mm, but the E100, E50, E75 tanks are similar, but more about the rebounds. Jagdtigert can not be assimilated to do? At least the bottom. Because it is the weakest of the TD Objects T30 tank still I can not always penetrate.

    ReplyDelete
  84. A short primer on the details of the camo system would be nice, as it's impossible to figure out from the russian UI. What's the difference between the 225g camo and the 450g ammo?

    ReplyDelete
  85. @wvdschel

    The extra layer of protection not included in the stats would be that giant gun shield in front of the turret. That, combined with the turret armor, makes 279mm. They didn't nerf the armor at all.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Dear Daedalus! And the rear armor? 50 and 19 was the testserver

    ReplyDelete
  87. Test server is just for test, dont go straight away WOOHAAA on devs.
    Maybe they are testing something that can be done when T30 is changed in to TD.
    As i m sure that they cant just transfer it on to TD line without some modification done.
    Lets see what Overlord has to say about that.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I thought it was a TD for teaching them the benefits of a large frontal armor, high-caliber tube, shoot accurately, high penetrating power,
    and of these only have a really high-caliber tube.

    ReplyDelete
  89. we have good reasons to go "woohaa" cause what they did to the us heavy line in the latest patches is just insane

    ReplyDelete
  90. Heard the test comes with "match recording" feature, care to elaborate further on that Ovi ? The reason it's not in "patchnotes" is prolly because it's getting axed from 7.0 ?

  91. Hello Overlord,
    I have one question about the revisions - will IS become IS-1/IS-2 after the revision of USSR tank tree? I'm still considering option to grind asap to IS-4 or if to wait until revision and have both lines of USSR heavies. Thank you for your answer.

  92. - The rate of getting team damage and team kill penalty points doubled.
    Penalties will arrive twice faster now.

    Overlord, Could you elaborate on this??

    does this mean ones loses twice as much credit and XP then before?


    While the idea of punishing teamkillers and such is great the realization once again is terrible. In 99,9 of all my cases I get punished because of the dumbness of my teammates - they drive around like crazy and ram me and since I usually use heavies they get damage and I not BUT ME gets the penalty - this sucks big time (e.g this week i got a almost T54 who drove full speed into my KT because he did not watch out - and he popped - so what am I supposed to do against such behaviour? !!!!! u need to discriminate angle of impact or something alike to get rid of that !!)

    Also, what are we supposed to do with all this dumb greedy idiots who literally drive in front of your gun - no matter how long you stood there before aimed and shot several volleys into the target - and they don't drive behind your barrel - NOOO they move directly in front of you with no consideration when u gonna shoot next time - which is exactly just then (for which they should be awarded a Darwin award) - and AGAIN it is me who is punished. Yes I watch out no but teammates, but one can't consider all dumb possibilities of ones teammates. If they get credits and XP for being dumb they will never learn how to play properly in the first place!

    PLEASE FIND ANOTHER SOLUTION FOR TEAMKILLERS AND FRIENDLY FIRE - hordes of dumb player hurt the game and the team way worse then an occasional accidental friendly fire!!!
    E.G. Divide the server into a zone WITH and another WITHOUT friendly fire - just like in any other egoshooter - problem solved with alomost no effort!

    A: No, it's not supposed to affect credit penalties. Violators will get penalties faster.

  94. Q: will IS become IS-1/IS-2 after the revision of USSR tank tree?

    A: No, we are not planning such change.

  95. Q: Heard the test comes with "match recording" feature, care to elaborate further on that Ovi ? The reason it's not in "patchnotes" is prolly because it's getting axed from 7.0 ?

    A: It's very raw at the moment, just a basic functionality that allows you to record battles. 1Mb per battle.

  101. Q: Overlord, please tell me the changes to the US heavies were some strange typo? I spent a lot of time grinding the US heavies, and now, just before I'm reaching the T30, your nerfing their only strength, the turret?

    Or is it because of the new armour classes, and is there some extra layer of protection not listed in the stats?

    A: Yes, the 2nd statement is correct.

  102. Q: @Overlord
    Your'e team is wrecking this game - sort it - T30 is just horrible what the hell are u doing to this tank apart from really p---ng people off to the point they leave!!!

  109. Quesion1: It seems to me like tanks with the five shot per click are at an advantage as to spamming useless shots, however against on tier things they are ridiculously overpowered. Is it possible to find a happy middle ground?

  110. thanks for the answer but I wasn't able to find out information about what will happen with IS after the revision if I will have it in my garage. It will just disappear?

    ReplyDelete
  111. On the test server even, I haven't heard any horns. I know I didn't bother buying them because they're too expensive for such limited use - a use that already is cosmetic. I wanted to use my gold to push up the German heavy tree. Burning 25 of it on the ability to honk at people three times is a waste even on a test server.

    If you're going to do something like this, just make them gold / credit-based, infinite use for that tank but have a suspension for use like spamming the minimap.

  114. I find it impressive how people seem to disregard everything Overlord says. Example: The above comment.

    ReplyDelete
  115. Overlord, I've noticed some bug IMO, why I was trying to check in-game reporting on test server. Ctrl and RMB where working only on enemy team and on a few (I think five) strongest tanks in my team. It didn't worked on most tanks in my team. I was checking it many times. Always the same result.

    Many things in 7.0 are great. Minimap is much more useful, notification about binoculars and camnet is really great, new maps are very fine, this horn which is tested is OK and completely not annoying, but:

    1. Camouflage is too expensive. 250 k credits for 7 days in case of E50 for example is just crazy. I would understand this prices if there would be some bonus in invisibility but there is none. This prices are especially strange if compared with camnet price (100 k and I have it forever). I would like them cheaper (IMO 10 times cheaper) because tanks with this skins looks really awesome!

    2. Great idea with sound alarm in case of friendly base cap. But i don't see a point in alarm in case of enemy base cap. And this sound is quite annoying. Please if you want to keep it make it milder.

    3. Smoke from guns fire is sometimes so intensive that I often lost visibility in sniper mode, I have seen only white fog. Sometimes I had to stop shooting afraid that I will hit teammate. This problem is most annoying in case of faster guns (10 shots per minute or more), or when they are two tanks close to each other. It is of course very realistic and maybe even intended but makes some problems.

    4. It looks that people are getting teamkiller status a little to easy. And I agree with Hypernaut comment above.


    And now something for many "omg Russian OP tanks" whiners ;). I am not Russian but I can read in this language and understand quite a lot. And I have seen many times Russian players crying on battle chat that German tanks are OP. One T54 driver even wrote that E50 should be removed from game because its too strong (he bounced me four times in a row, while all my gold ammo shots penetrated).

    ReplyDelete
  116. Hmm, could've sworn I posted here yesterday. Anyway...

    Thanks for getting 7.0 on to test for us.

    Overlord,

    Q1. Should we expect a full English version of the test client shortly, or is the player fix of copying files from Live install over the top the best we will have until 7.0 is Live on NA server?

    Q2. Should the new UI remember your selection of size (i.e. it now has button for 3 different sizes / info fields) - seems to reset every game which is a pain.

    Q3. A number of the camo skins seem to stretch badly on larger tanks, leading to looking really bizarre and slapped together (check out, say, Mutant 6), is this a bug to be fixed or just the way the camo skins are to be applied and will stay that way?

    Q4. With the hitbox changes, I am finding it more difficult than ever to damage the German & USSR Tier 9/10 tanks - specifically in the case of the Maus, it seems frontal lower hull hits can now track it sometimes. Is there an issue with some of the new hitboxes?

    Q5. Overall, the hitbox change combined with the normalisation change seems to have had detrimental effect on the already imbalanced high-tier heavies, at least from a US point of view. Specifically, it is now even more important for US tankers to aim very carefully (and given the gun accuracys, this means be fairly close range too) which, against US t anks, the other nations still don't really have to worry about. Has this been taken into account at least for the new US tanks incoming to restore balance, if not for further tweaking in this current patch?

    Q6. Some of the new sounds are really irritating - e.g. capping siren if the cap is being constantly broken and restarted gets particularly annoying. Are we likely to get options to enable/disable some of these sounds?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  117. Overlord. Some feed back for you.

    1. I'm keen to buy those special premiums
    2. I like the horns. Please keep them.
    3. German camo is rubbish. Inaccurate colors, missing more famous camo schemes and terribly washed out. Other nations are good! Especially love the type 59's selection but German ones are plain bad!
    4. I like the capping alarm but suggest that both teams shouldn't share the same sound.

  118. Overlord,

    the new Front armor of the IS-7 is now nearly impenetrable, even for Tier IX- X guns. Taking the speed and agility of the IS-7 into account, do you plan to adjust some values of it's front armor in order to prevent the IS-7 becoming slight OP (front armor from Maus and agility of T-30 is weird)?

    ReplyDelete
  119. New maps - good like them very much - could do with brightening up though especially swamp
    Is7 - way to go :-)bout time
    T34 - T30 WG get your shit together or loose paying customers these tanks are quite frankly - SHIT.. and i don't even use US heavies in main server..
    Type 59 - way too OP need hitting with the nerf bat (waits for the 59 crys)
    Stupid syrens/horns on base capture - get rid and shoot the idiot in the face who thought of that..
    Love the new effects
    Generally a decent patch..

    ReplyDelete
  120. Summary of what I've found.
    A) T-59 need nerf badly.
    B) German mediums need a boost in the pene department. I should not be bouncing every shot on IS3's.
    C) Good graphical and sound effect improvements, I have no complaints.
    D) A camo tutorial would be nice for a blog post.
    E) EXP Curve is still brutal for some of the lines, perhaps increasing the standard servers base payout might be wise? Casual gamers like me who enjoy the game and want to play with big toys, haven't the time to get to those tanks. The test server is the only time I have the option to drive 6+ tanks.

    If you shut up and use gold ammo like you're supposed to, you won't have this problem. I mean, God. We're running a business here, and the copious amounts of cash we're getting from premium subscriptions is only enough to give us 30% year-end bonuses. We need the Gold ammo to sell. What, you don't think we deserve a 45% bonus? Is that it? Why do you hate our families? How is little Sergei going to feel when he learns his Dad couldn't afford to buy him the car he always wanted? If you don't want little Sergei to cry, you'll buy the Gold Ammo and you'll use it like you're supposed to (to penetrate tier 10 tanks.)

    Pssh, you're being silly. My PzIV can penetrate Tier 10 tanks with ease. Well, the T30 anyway.

    In fact, my PzIV can kill T30s easier than my T30 can kill a Maus... hrmm.

    "German mediums need a boost in the pene department. I should not be bouncing every shot on IS3's."

    Which ones? E50? Panther II? I think that you mean only those with short 88 mm. Yes, this gun has insufficient penetration.

    "EXP Curve is still brutal for some of the lines, perhaps increasing the standard servers base payout might be wise? Casual gamers like me who enjoy the game and want to play with big toys, haven't the time to get to those tanks."

    No way. It would have been very unfair for those who already grinded to top tanks sometimes spending on it a lot of money and playing many, many battles against stronger opponents.

    Similar thing is with Type-59. People spend money on this tank. It can't be now nerfed. The only thing IMO WG could make with them is changing their matchmaker.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Even my E50 with the final gun unlocked and mounted, bounces most shots against anything bigger then teir 7. Which is sad.

    In respect to it being unfair I disagree. You could give them back XP based on what they would have spent originally. Thus giving them the ability to spend large amounts of free xp on units they wouldn't spend it on otherwise. So it could be handled properly.

    My Lowe has already been nerfed twice now, how is the T-59 any different. I have a E50 fully upgraded 100%crew fully geared, and in a fight. The t-59 almost always wins. That's a problem. The game should be about skill not who shelled out money for a unit. The reason I respect the lowe is it takes talent to Drive. A t-59 does not, ram and shoot. Especially considering my lowe has trouble hurting it, and that's a heavy. So does my T-25 AT a tank destroyer. So does my friends GWPanther, she bounces on it about 5% of the time in an upgraded arty.

  126. "The t-59 almost always wins. That's a problem. The game should be about skill not who shelled out money for a unit."

    If a T-59 almost always wins against your E-50, this game is clearly about skills. Your problem is, you don´t have said skill.

    ReplyDelete
  127. I can aim quite well. Why do people always assume that I'm the problem when my shots bounce? I can be firing on the flat facing of the IS3's treads line it up center it, and fire. Not even that high pitched "Chink" to tell me I crited. Only time it remains functional is if I swing around to rear armor. Which may be part of my problem. However it is really upsetting when You've got no play to hit but forward armor and you can't do squat.In my lowe, which in theory is worse pene, I can hit IS7's on side armor and IS4's or lower forward armor easily. Even heavies or other types crumple under that gun.

    I can kill a T-59 assuming it's not at close range, At long range I can snipe out treads and keep them there till enough shells go through. If I am missing skills instead of being nasty about it, might you enlighten me as to what I'm missing? I can reliably connect with areas that should go through. Side tred, rear hull, under carriage, etc. The message I get more then anything else, is "That one bounced" Or "Ricochete".

    It should take the E-50 roughly four or five shots assuming they all go through to kill a T-59. I have sat there on side or rear armor with a friend and I can't go through the armor easily. I've tried varying range bands, places I hit, momentum of the target. Angle of attack.

    Am I simply using the gun wrong? Is it's pene value truly that low at close range? If you do so well in your E-50 I'd appreciate the sharing of knowledge. (Which is funny because I do average about 700xp ish per round in that thing despite it's shortcomings)

  128. Overlord, on the EU forums in this thread (http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?/topic/57515-update-v70/) it was stated that the 7.1 is pushed back to 2012 - "Les chars français seront dans la version 7.1 prévue pour le quatrième trimestre de 2011.
    Edit: Les chars Français sont repoussés à 2012, suite à un problème technique sur la technologie multi-cluster ayant repoussé le lancement de la 7.0 à mi-décembre."

    Is this really the case??

    As for the poster who is struggling to kill anything with an E-50... you have the two best penetration guns available to any Tier9 med, if you're bouncing, it's the angles you're hitting at that's the problem.

  130. Comments so far from Test Server:

    1) Allow to enable/disable horn sounds.

    2) PLEASE allow to enable/disable/control sound of base capture, I'm playing at night sometimes and this really wakes up everyone!

    3) Luckily camo has no boost to tank visibility, otherwise with it's current cost you'd make it into a 'pay to win' game!

    4) I like the graphics and effects, mini-map looks amazing now!!

    5) New HE physics are bugged I think... shot an IS-3 - 5 times at his side, 4 more times his rear , using HE shells while driving the PZ IV Hydro for a total of 0 (zero) damage. Surly this is not correct.
    Same happen several more times, HE should do less DMG and that's OK, but not 0 DMG every single time.

    6) Make it remember my choice when sorting tank lists in game.

  131. Hi

    Question though: What crew-voice options will we have (if any)? I hated the voices you added with the last release. It would be nice if we could select the accent that our crew(s) have as that american (I assume that was what was intended) accent was horrible.

  136. @ LtTearGrant

    My E50 took 95 prc of health from Maus before someone else killed me. I was using normal ammo. So I think it has good gun. And T-54 and Patton doesn't have better penetration.

    "In respect to it being unfair I disagree. You could give them back XP based on what they would have spent originally. So it could be handled properly."

    World of Tanks is business entertainment. It earns money mostly on people who are grinding, so your proposition is thus completely unrealistic.

    When Lowe was nerfed and how?? I don't remember nerfing it (I don't have one, so I could missed such change) but I know that very often people write on forums about nerfs that are only their imagination.

    ReplyDelete
  137. For those hating the t30. I once played it in a Clan War, using the Acc of a clan member. I have NEVER touched American heavies at all, but t30 rocked. I felt it to be a great tank. Its philosophy is pretty much the same of the derp gun KV. Hug cover, get out, shoot a target, retreat back into cover. It is not meant to go toe to toe against other tier 10s.

    One more question Overlord: When will information about the Sturmtiger be released? Up until now I have not payed a penny for this game, but the Sturmtiger could actually change that. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  138. The day you make the Hydro only available to few people (like contest or lottery winners) will be the last day I spend money on WOT. If it will be available for purchase in a limited time frame that'll be okay with me.

    So far I could get every German tank except the Alpha but I have the same tank from the pre order package so I could live with that.

    Can't believe! Out of 7200 games, I played most of the games with Pz IV (which I find best tank in game).

    Now I am waiting for spec. event to make milions of credits in a day. Greedy I am. And shame on you. And it WAS NOT rare bug, it was happened all the time on all maps.


    >>- When selling the tank you get quick option to remove its equipment and crew.

    Another great tweak - I just get bored when I am selling tank. Have you made an option to train the crew, all them at once, for another tank?


    >>- Added notification when it's impossible to sell tank due to exceeding selling limit.

    "Selling limit"? What is that?


    >>- Fixed certain problems with game display for multiscreen configurations.

    My secondary display is 50" plasma screen. I have asked that before - does this fix allows game to run full screen AT the screen where it was previously in window mode? Or - can I run the game at secondary monitor full screen?

  143. In respect to:"When Lowe was nerfed and how?? I don't remember nerfing it (I don't have one, so I could missed such change) but I know that very often people write on forums about nerfs that are only their imagination."
    Happened a few months ago. The unit is strong enough that most people don't care. The gun hits respectably hard, penes most things, and it's a remarkably durable unit.

    As far as why the E-50 was under-performing for me chances are it was merely the pure quantity of type 59's running around. I couldn't get a single battle with less then 2 of them. Alone they are not fun to shoot at because forward armor is so sloped. In packs I felt severely underpowered, these should be a tier below me but there gun seems far more powerful. May just be the increase in agility they have making them particularly annoying, but as of right now, I find the 59 to be the better of the premium tanks out there. I'd like for all of them to have merit, instead of being the go to medium. You almost never see real T-54's running around, they are so rare, despite being "better". That's a problem. I still see plenty of Teir 8 german heavies that aren't premium, so why do I never see teir 9 Russian mediums. The answer is that t-59.

    ReplyDelete
  144. @ LtTearGrant

    And what was nerfed in Lowe? Can you show me patch notes about this nerfing?

    Type 59 has weak gun. 175 mm penetration and 230 dmg. E50 has 220 penetration and 390 dmg. Also E50 rof is not much worse

(if you haven't the stock pewpews of T6 meds, but that count for any T6 med :D). If you are stock and the VK3601 have the 88, just do the strat of the medium tank: AVOID COMBAT :D

  157. Vignetting is a post effect which makes the corners of an image darker than the center. Almost like tunnel vision. I guess this is added to the gray-out effect after you died. Do you have a photo album where the pictures are cropped by a circular mask? That's a Vignette.

    The T29 has the best body armor of all tier 7 tanks. It has more thickness than any other tier 7 and it has more slope as well. The side armor of any tank is weak (except stuff like IS7 and Maus). Is is only on higher tiers (T32, T34, T30) where the body armor gets weaker, or stated differently: it does not get any upgrades like tanks of other nations. The T32 armor is ok'ish, the T34 armor is weak and the T30 armor is a joke.

    The T29 hitbox update is nice. Also the T-44 buff.

  159. 1. Didn't play with it, but it didn't seem nearly as annoying as everyone thought it was. I only heard a handful of horns through three or four days of gaming on the test server so far.

    2. Camos look generally okay, but pricing is still FAR too expensive. Pricing for the permanent camo shouldn't be more than 100 gold for the heavies. (And the 7 & 30 day pricing shouldn't be more than 100k credits. 30 days on a heavy tank at, what, 240k silver is NOT worth a camo net or half a rammer.)

    3. The English language workaround makes it a little difficult to really judge all of the UI features, but in general I don't see any problems. The notifications on the minimap are GREAT. I like the sirens/sounds with the base cap (though I would very much like to see one sound specifically for your own base being captures, and another "happier" sound for your team capping the enemy base).

    4. With such a small player pool to work with this weekend, it's a bit hard to really judge gameplay. By afternoon, it was becoming impossible to play any of the new small tanks.

    5. Working on a lower-end laptop, I had to delete some of the particles to keep my fpm in a decent range. The tracers are nice, and working on other machines, the hits look good. I've only had a couple of games each on the two new maps--other than the fairly typical "three battle zones" I didn't see anything bad that stood out (that'll likely have to wait until everyone learns the maps).

  163. - Quitting the battle leaves the tank in battle. In case it was not destroyed during the battle, it is automatically destroyed when the battle ends."

    This a symptom of the MM being fubar. So instead of fixing the problem we are going really piss people off who are already pissed off and quitting matches. I have a bank on wall st. I would like you to run.

    1. With the wheel removed from your bike, inspect ICAbike01 the outer ICAbike01 surface of the tire to make sure there are no sharp objects like a thumb-tack or thorn stuck in the tread.
      Remove Tir
      Remove the valve cap and fully deflate the tube bycarbon bike rimsdepressing the valve stem with the hooked end of your tire lever. There are two main types of valve stems, a schrader valve and a presta valve. This tutorial is based on a schrader valve, but I will be covering the different valve types in another tutorial.
      Now it’s time to remove your tire, one side at a time. Choose a section of tire that is away from the valve and hook one of the tire levers under the bead, directly in line with one of your spokes. Pry one side of the tire bead over the edge of the rim, and then hook the end of the tire lever to the nearest spoke. Insert another tire lever two spokes away from the first, and a third another two spokes away. Now the middle lever should fall out, and you can continue the process. When the tire is loose enough you can just run a tire lever around the rest of the rim to pull the whole side over.
      After you have removed one side of carbon fiber rimsthe tire, the other side should come off very easily.
      Inspect Tube
      Now remove the tube from the tire, and try to keepcarbon bicycle rimstrack of where it was positioned in relation to the tire. Inflate the tube to approximately twice its original size. This will expand the hole making it easier to find.
      Listen carefully to the entire circumferenceof the tube; you should hear a hissing sound that will indicate where the leak is. As a last resort you can submerge the tube in water and watch for bubbles, but you’ll want to avoid doing this as you’ll need the tube to be completely dry in order for the patch glue to work.
      Once you’ve found the leak, take note of whether it is on the inner or outer side of the tube.
      If the hole was on the outer side of the tube, inspect the inner surface of the tire in that spot to make sure the object that caused the puncture is not still stuck in the tire. Double check the entire inner side of the tire by running your fingers along the entire surface, feeling for obstacles along the way.
      If the hole was on the inner side of the tube,inspect yourzipp 404entire rim to make sure there are no sharp burrs in the metal, and that the rim tape is properly protecting the tube from your spoke ends.
      Now that the rim and tire are clear, it’s time to patch the tube. Select an appropriate sized patch for the hole. Use the sandpaper or scraper provided in your kit to buff the surface of the tube for an area a bit larger than the patch. You need to buff the tube so that it is no longer shiny. If the molding line is running along the area where the patch is to be applied, you must sand it down completely, or it will provide an air channel. Once buffed, avoid touching that area with your fingers.
      Apply a dab of rubber cement, and then spread it into a thin coat, using your cleanest finger. Work quickly. You want a thin, smooth coat of cement; if you keep fiddling with it as it begins to dry, you’ll risk making it lumpy. The thinner the cement, the faster it will dry. It is very important to allow the cement to dry completely.
      Peel the foil from the patch and press the patch onto the tube firmly, squeezing the patch tightly onto the tube.
