World of Tanks (WoT)

Community Update – Stream Recap – 10/08/21

Hello Reddit!

So, Sturmtigers! Let me know what you all think. We'll know a bit more on Monday when we can play them live! Aside from that, some big changes to maps to read about, and some really nice changes to the prices with the season pass next season. As always, let me know what you think below and I can answer any questions asked next week!

Here is the latest Community Update Stream recap from our WoTConsole Twitch stream.

  • Added some missing commander portraits
  • Adjusted a rounding issue for MoE in PBRS
  • Removed press and hold for researching upgrades
  • New Western Alliance Détente Heavy: MBT70 + skins on October 5
    • Seeing a lot of comments about how its pen is subpar. Comparing to other heavies of the same tier:
      • Win rate: 50.3%, out of three vehicles of the same class/tier it is 2nd place
      • Damage: Marginally 2nd place nearly tied for first place with the T-72B

Next Week

  • New WWII Sturmtiger Tank Destroyer line on Tuesday! I will play them live on Monday on Twitch

  • Removing CW maps from WWII, adding Ghost Town
    • Now one rotation for battle tiers 5-8, one for 9-11 (3 fewer maps than 5-8)
    • Tier 7 and 8 vehicles can be in either map rotation
  • Last week’s Tanks Reforged: Strv 103B Tank Destroyer Tech Tree line went live Sept 28
    • Win Rate:
      • Tiers 9-10 increased by ~1%
      • Tiers 4-8 increased by ~2%
  • Next Tanks Reforged is the E 50 M:
    • Improved the alpha damage and DPM of most of the guns from the Panther to E 50M
    • Removed bad stock guns from the Panther II and E 50 so they start with a more tier appropriate gun
    • Improved turret armor for the E 50 and E 50M to help with brawling:
      • Kraft panther will see increased alpha damage and all-around gun improvements
      • Pz. III Ausf. K received improved hull armor and accuracy
  • Next Tanks Reforged is related to Mi6… Can you guess?
