sorry, google chrome = auto translates languages. its the best browser out so you get use to thinking everyone has it translated automatically LoL!

ok so basically it shows the distance a regular 400m view range tank with 100% crew can spot all the tanks in the gamess sitting still (max camo) VS moving VS sitting still firing

No wonder my game has been off lately.
^ not camo skill, but camo paint. camo paint for most tanks got mega-nerfed which sucks

for example the difference camo crew skill makes on a terrible camo jgtiger E-100 on a normal 100% crew without BIA/vent/consumeable is being spotted at 369m (stock) VS 220m (bush+camo paint+camo net) vs 169m (100% camo skill + camo net + camo paint + behind a bush).
a drastic change 100% across the board crew skill makes. thats and extra 70 meters to get your first free shot in or play invisitank lol

Oh, missed that translation.

And with camo paint, not by my numbers. Paint used to be about 5% of the existing camo factor - about to 1-2%, assuming a good camo value to begin with. If you get 2.5% flat, that is a modest buff.

Yeah he made me regret it 10 seconds after doing so by moving Nathan from channel to channel to channel

I figured that since I published the password "to the masses" and I'm not always available I'd give a few of the guys that are in there a lot the ability to solve any problems that could occur by any non-team members.

8.7 goes live on…

Posted on by Silentstalker41 Comments ↓
Hello everyone,
I usually do this with Q&A, but since I am not sure whether there will be one today (SerB probably took vacation), I’ll post it straight away:
8.7 will go live on:
RU server – 23.7.
EU server – 24.7.
US server – 25.7.
Looks like 1 week to crank out silver and stock up on gold consumables......

This.

For average players, premium fire extinguishers are worth more than their weight in tier 8-10 games.

For any non-German T7+ medium or TD (which rarely burn from frontal hits), premium repair is an incredibly good replacement for the third slot fire extinguisher. Multiple module repair is game changing, and -10% to repair time (tracks!) is a life saver on it's own.

Edit: All premium consumables are 50% off until the 0.8.7 patch is released.
