Not sure if I never noticed it before, but, when I was playing my KV-13 medium tank, when I fired, the bullet looked like a......how to explain it.....it didn't look like a normal shell like the other tanks, it was more of a gray dot. Not sure if that made sense.

These fixes are all good. However, I wish you would have fixed the hull disappearing post mortem on the Blitzen, VK100.01.P and some other tanks, as it has been an issue since August.

RAIBot01 most of the update looks good. From the new tier 10 light tanks to the new premium tech tree, more replay features and some of the fixes. Now for the bad :hiding: Proving Grounds got the silver nerfed for the 3rd time. Proving Grounds and the War Stories enemy bots got the ammo rack bug again in which they will ammo rack you, then you use the repair kit and they ammo rack you again (Repair kits are expensive) and this started after the update.

It was like that before, I have seen it on night maps.

I am really questioning why the Elc bis and the Chaffee got nerfed. Like did the developers even consider any of the extremely overpowered premium tanks like the Pz. V/IV, seriously though when in tier 5 I never looked at the AMX as a true threat and yet they still needed to nerf it. And then can we talk about the problem of artillery, in PC artillery has been noted as overpowered for it's ability to one shot people so it got nerfed there but apparently console developers thought differently. Instead of any type of Nerf the artillery actually received a buff with the new spotting/targeting mechanic. So if the developers can stop taking steps backward instead of forward for balance that would be nice. Granted this update has had some nice additions for layout but  not enough to make this a good update.

Rant over.

Noticed in Redshire 44 and prokhorovka green team tanks outline when looking at them full view and zoomed the tank was outlined in red so when trying to shoot a red zoomed in it's a little confusing

Hi, 

 

Does the gun sound of the M-12 artillery will be corrected in 4.2? I didn't see any topic about this.

I've submitted a ticket about It sometime ago and I was told that It was a known issue, and that would be sorted out on the next update.

 

Cheers

I'll follow up and ask about this

Looks like mini map is broken. After I get killed and watch other players, I don't see their arc of view on the mini map anymore. Was this intentional or is it a bug?

This is a known issue that's being fixed

Same as above.  This is a big bug we are trying to repair

  • Leaving a match to join a platoon no longer causes a softlock. this means that the invite tab doesn't freeze anymore? and you don't have to wait to go to the garage or anything till after the match is over?

That is correct :)

Hi Rai,

 

I played last night. Mostly the patch is good, however changing the tech tree flow is a problem.

 

When selecting a tree, players often base their decision on tanks they want to work towards. For example, the T57. To have the rug pulled out from under someone who is grinding up to the T49 on their way to the T57 is very discouraging considering the time in game. It doesn't entirely make sense to me why there wouldn't either be:

 

1. A parallel branch from the T49 to the T54E1 OR

2. Some advanced notice of the patch drop date.

 

In my situation, as of Monday night I had enough tank + free XP to get the T54E1, and having advanced notice of the patch I would have done so. Now I'm stuck with the prospect of going back down to tier 4 to grind back up to the tier 9 and tier 10 I really wanted. That equates (based on # of games played Tier 5-8 for me) to between 32 hrs and 97 hrs (assuming rounds beteeen 5 and 15 minutes long) of 'wasted time'.

 

granted, it wasn't wasted in the sense that I had fun along the way, but the goal I was working for was taken away. It is very disappointing. Most patches, even if the features aren't that great, don't abuse the user in this fashion. Even though this is just one tiny aspect of the patch, the fact that it actively takes away from the players makes it one of the worse patch launches to date. 

 

Imagine working two weeks and expecting your paycheck only to find out you are being paid in gum. It's a similar feeling.

The game is nearly unplayable for me atm, i have massive lags all the time and it's definitely not my connection. 

I also heard this from my friends and a lot of other players as well. 

 

Honestly my motivation to play tanks is a free fall because of that.

Great update!!!

Seriously, it's one of the best. I especially like the addition of the premium tanks' tech tree.

 

Lots of stuff to do over the xmas holidays.

 

Would be nice if they would show the premium xp/silver multipliers for the tanks also.

Non Vi Sed Arte.

I could play the oboe

or tanks

I completely agree about the lights. With the introduction of many new tanks all the time the light nerf hurts. Its questionable like why? It hurts my heart more than anything. A reversal would be much appreciated. Loved my chaffee more than 90% of my life please return it I beg you.
