  1. It does seem that there is a fair bit of work still to do on the B2.0 reworking, the devs seem to still be hoping for a February release. Personally I don't really have a feel for what its all going to mean. I just hope it will be the beginning of a population recovery so i can get some PvP battles again. One thing I'd like to highlight again is the compensation plan for B2.0 implementation. There will be complete refunds on anything that is being changed. in particular if you have a vehicle that is being tier shifted then any camo, decals or battle hardening for that vehicle will be refu
  2. Well as I said, if you think you might want to play after the 0.19 changes then it might pay to have a look now because there are a lot of opportunities to benefit from the rebalancing and associated compensation. If you have previously purchased gold and its not doing anything consider buying a Centauro 120, Terminator or WZ1224 as they will all be uptiered and you will in the case of the WZ its currently on special for half price (750G for what will be a T6 premium, normal T6 premium price is over 3k). And hey if you haven't tried it yet check out the new GLOPS mode, its not really my cup of
  3. Hello folks, not sure how familiar you all are with the changes afoot in Armoured Warfare at the moment. Balance 2.0 Big ticket items 1) Indirect fire arty as a playable class is gone!!! They are going to test keeping the class as a high calibre assault gun but it might disappear completely in a future update. 2) major rebalancing of damage and HP. Damage from same calibre guns will be normalized across the tiers as will HP. It means that lower tiers will be much better able to fight higher tiers. 3) overhaul of the retrofits system so it will no longer be necessa

  5. If the Panzerschiffe end up in the cruiser you might see the torps but not necessarily. A lot of BB's had torps tubes as well IRL. I suspect they would leave them off the Panzerschiffe regardless of the line it ends up in. Dan
  6. I've purchased a number of Chinese tablets over the last few years for myself, my wife and oldest son. Models from Onda and Cube. They all use the Allwinner chips and offer some nice specs at very decent prices. There is a nice utility available for allwinner devices that allows you to boot from an SD card, it's really handy for flashing with new/custom ROM's (best way to get rid of all the Chinese bloatware) and it makes these devices virtually unbrickable since you can easliy reflash back to an official ROM if you have problems. However the build quality can be a bit hit and miss. My Onda V9
  7. Oh I'm sure its not something thats coming to us this year for sure but as statement about shifting positions its reasonably clear. Maybe as Rexxie says its just about getting out of a corner that previous statments have painted them into but I don't know why you would bother if you weren't at least giving it some consideration. I knew about the T132 but was not aware the 59-100T was a smoothbore. Thanks for that. The argument that smoothbores would be somehow gamebreaking has always been one of the more ridiculous ones. Dan We are talking about an arcade game not a realistic simulatio
  8. Its almost like Intel has found a new way to gimp its chips and limit OC returns while still allowing them to sell more expensive models of the same basic chip. Dan
  9. Of course the limted tank selection not what makes them fun. They are enjoyable in spite of it largely for the reasons you suggest. For some people though the fun is getting the tank. Like I said most players don't participate in the organised side of this game. All they want to do is drive tonks. Now obviously the population here is going to be heavily weighted the other way but there is probably no reason WG couldn't add an additional level to Strongholds for instance. Clearly for this audience this is an area where my own model is weak. Like I said its intended as a starting point for discu
  10. And that was my point, there are already areas where players on have a very limited selcetion vehicles to use and those stil manage to be fun. wrt to fire on the move I was perhaps not clear enough, I was saying that your accuracy both at the halt and on the move should be somewhat better therefore you should have a better chance of hitting any weakpoints that WG includes frontally while the inherent mobility of MBT's should allow for agressive maneuvering to achieve flanking and rear shots. Dan
  11. Well a lot of the competitive modes tend use a very limited selection of the available tanks and they still manage to be fun. I am under no illusions that WG is going pick up proposal and run with it as "the" model for higher tiers. This is when my own musings on the subject have led me, formed by the things I like and am interested in. I want to use it as a tool to see some discussion on the prospect of additional tiers. Frankly I have had more success here in a couple of hours than across the Asia, NA and EU forums combined. Dan Oh I'm sure WG can come up with some weakpoints, you would l
  12. Actually I was refering to WotLabs as a whole being more active than the offical Asia forum, fingers crossed. So far its promising. Dan
  13. I would disagree. In fact I already have in the OP. To summarise though we already have a whole new game for modern tanks. The problem is that in order for other vehicles to have a role there MBT's have been gimped. Vehicles like the Bradley, the BMD, LAV's etc are all designed to fullfill roles (eg infantry support) and address concerns (eg need for strategic mobility) that are outside the scope of a game like WoT or AW. Therefore in order to give those vehicles a role role, AW has effectively turned MBT's into WoT's heavy tanks. What I am sugesting is something that would give MBT's some cl
