I haven't had any epic damage games with since 8.6. Seems everyone abandons me right away. got surrounded by 2 T71's and the tier 9 panzer thing. I didn't last long but hit the Panzer for 1k damage

Imma take the weekend off and play in the woods.

I had one trundle across the bridge toward me in that alpine map with the glacier....

Good grief.

Do they make a left-handed version? I can't find any good choices except for the relatively basic ambidextrous mice. I have a Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 and it's starting to flake out on me a little bit.

I've never found a good mouse designed for left-handed use. There are some lefty mice out there, but all the ones I've seen have been junk. I want Logitech to make something. My backup mouse is an old Logitech optical mouse that I bought about 12 years ago.

It's fine.

What blew me away on this game were 2 things - first, I took no damage. Couple of ricochet's, but notice the lack of repair bill. Second, the goofy "get 3 kills, get a bunch of xp and silver" event I didn't know about, made for mad profit on that match.

For fun, observe the M103 on the other team with zero damage dealt before his death.

Just a reminder, guys, the 8.7 test apparently starts tomorrow. On one hand I am surprised that almost nothing has been leaked about it, on the other hand, the source of this info is very reliable.

- links from and to the British arty branch? “Wait for open test”
- IF the E-50 tanks are unified (definitely not sure), E50M will simply become a hull option for the E50
- a “Wittman-like” medal (for a big number of kills) won’t be implemented specially for lower tiers, because the developers don’t want to encourage experienced players to go hunt newbies, tier 5 (Walters-Radley medal) is already not sealclubbing/pedobearing
- the rule that “weak gun = limited MM” applies only for premium tanks
- if Sturmpanzer Bär was introduced into the game (SS: SerB emphasized the “IF“), it would most likely be a part of Sturmtiger’s branch

SS: Sturmpanzer Bär was a superheavy (120t) 1943 self-propelled mortar project,armed with a 305mm mortar. The project was basically rendered obsolete by the Sturmtiger project and cancelled. This is how it would have looked:



- with the introduction of researchable hulls, GW Tiger P won’t become an optional hull for GW Tiger, because otherwise there would be a hole in the respective tier
- lowtier tanks, previously leaked from supertest (such as AMR P103, LTP etc.) won’t be introduced at once, but at different times for each
- new British and Chinese tanks? “will tell when the time is right”
- SerB doesn’t know yet what the Japanese tanks’ base color will be
- JagdChieftain (CTR) in WoT? “No comment”

Jagdchieftain:



- SerB won’t disclose the exact mechanism, how XP points are gained from combat, he only states that the XP gain is judged by active participation in the line-of-sight tank battle (as in, tanks have to see each other)
- no plans to give additional XP/credits for protecting allied tanks with your tank’s hull
- it’s too early to tell, what impact the 8.6 had on medium tanks
- SerB states that while the statistics are yet to show, arties are unlikely to be directly buffed. Instead, devs have ideas about some new artillery gameplay elements, which would raise the arty effectivity, but the concept is not finalized yet.
- SerB states that while he doesn’t remember whether the IS-6 in the game has electrical or mechanical transmission, you can check it yourself, if the vehicle can turn on the spot, it’s electrical, if not, mechanical
- the German 50mm L/60 gun module is too light in the game, it should be heavier, but this has low priority
- terrain passability is counted according to the point, located in center of the hull (SS: if the center is located on the road, while one track is located on rough terrain, the game will use the passability of the road)
- Russian players started massive whining about the T-44 being underpowered after 0.8.6, it was dismissed as… well, whining.
- StuG IV in WoT? “No comment”
- SerB believes he does have the T92 light tank documents/drawings, because The_Chieftain (US forums history expert/developer) sent him a lot of stuff
- SerB considers the “miniquest” (combat task) principle okay, but its implementation was a bit off.

Well, its coming alright. The long awaited removal and replacement of T50-2 is finally at the gates.

First of all - the replacement - the MT 25 will be tier 6, so don't go comparing it with the Leopard ok?
Crew, XP and everything else will be either compensated or transferred. Oookay so what do we get?
The MT 25 will be heavier, a bit slower on the acceleration - same top speed but the engine has only 50 extra horsepowers. Armour wise we have an improvement - nothing serious, but you never know nowadays.





The top gun remains the same - the 57mm Zys. A buff in RoF is likely, since the tank goes to tier 6. Considering the MM of T-50-2, its previous owners should not feel any issues with the guns. They were facing high tier tanks anyway, where the 57mm barely qualifies for self defence (and setting tiger tanks on fire). At first look the MT 25 seems a bit inferior due to the not so cosmic acceleration, however it might be better at maneuvering and also - we don't know the ground resistance yet. We get an equal tank at worst.
