Common Test 10.0 Thread - Changelog Inside

Recommended Posts

So I'll be able to give my STB-1's gunner a 4% skill bonus? Hell yeah.

It seems like these all have the 20% HP threshold. Idk. I'm curious to see how worth it they will be.

play to win truly entered WOT now.

No, because you can rent them with credits.

The bigger problem is that I have to cover my nice looking tanks with graffiti to get top configuration.

There are mods that remove camo/flags/etc.

If the Chieftain will be as OP as the ActionX, then we'll have the 2 new best tanks in the game

That's kind of the point of this testing - making sure they wont be OP and if they are then they'll probably be nerfed and held back. Currently I think only the Chieftain might be nerfed because its got a bit too much going for it.

FV4202(105)? Does that mean it'll keep the L7 when reintroduced?

Ops, forgot to change the name, disregard the 105, it will use a  20-pounder. (Actually worse stats than Cent 1 afaik)

Would be amusingif it were to be introduced, basicly a big "fuck you" to all those fools buying the soon-to-be-released 100€-package containing the M4A1 Reverant (as well as 30 days of premium and 10 million credits)

Apprently it's linked to some "unbuyable premium tanks" in your garage (I went through 3 accounts, all of which had something like either a Type 59/E-25/WZ-111/Obj 907 etc.) before going to a scrubby friend's account that had practically nothing but a churchill III and finally got in.

Apparently the test server doesn't support those tanks, so rip.

I've got the E25, WZ111, Obj907, Vk72.... yet I still could get in with no problems.

Its account dependable, which basically makes it server-side related and the error appears to hit a lot of people.

Only solution for now is to borrow a friends account.

Added voice notifications to the functionality of Dynamic Platoons

This must be the one where you hear a voice announce when a dynamic platoon is made.

Who asked for this? If I recall the only major feedback WG got about the text announcement of dynamic platoons was complaints. This is just going to make that worse. Just why would they do this?

It's what WG wants.  Why would the players know what the game needs :rngfu:

First of all, this: 

8b5dccbfec.jpg

I had to use my alternative account for world of tanks to successfully log in to the technical test. 

Anyhoo, I got to play the Action X, and so far, I'm pretty disappointed with it, here are a list of my experiences with it so far if anyone is concerned 

PROS 

  • Good top speed
  • Good gun handling
  • Good overall mobility
  • Strong gun mantle that can soak up shots.
  • Fast reload
  • HEAT shells have good overall penetration

CONS

  • No armor - very prone to artillery attacks 
  • Cannot abuse and bully players with the UFP like the FV4202 can. 
  • Poor crew/module protection
  • 1950 hitpoints is an elephant in the room and is extremely annoying due to the tank having essentially no armor. 
  • Turret armor is the only armor on this tank that really matters when it comes to bouncing shots period.
  • The entire part of the turret above the gun is extremely soft and can be penetrated by tier 8 guns.
  • Long aim time on the gun
  • Premium HESH Shell with 200 penetration was removed, we instead get the less reliable 105mm HESH round. 

OVERALL 

I've had some fun games in the Action X Centurion, but I don't consider the tank as a viable replacement for the FV4202. The only thing I felt that was really wrong with the FV4202 was it's mediocre top speed. The Action X Centurion has horrible overall performance when it is fighting enemies by itself. The turret being mounted essentially around the center of the tank makes it hard to turn corners because you are exposing your side armor, I often find myself thinking that I'm protected whenever I'm behind a rock, but somebody still manages to shoot my side anyways and deal damage to my tank. The tank itself is extremely unforgiving due to the low amount of hitpoints and the tank having absolutely no armor.
