    Haven't played this game in a long time.

    Tried twice during the Christmas break to try out Baguette Tanks in RB, gave up due to queue times.

    And nothing of value was lost.

    I might very well be the only dude still playing this, but today the snail was gratious.

    I unlocked and bought my first tier 6 tank, the T-72A. A couple of games in I got a battle trophy, and lo and behold, a talisman for it!

    modern tank guns are fucking amazing, i'm having quite a bit of fun with my Ivan mobile.

    Nah I'm playing on and off, switching between the big three. It's fun but I am nowhere near high tiers. Tonks IS fun now that I got back into it, start to know the maps a bit better and got my feel for the dynamics of the game again, but the grind is still terrible :>

    6.7-7.7 is fucking ass right now, they've introduced the centauro at 7.7 which is a 120kph wheeled italian tank with a stabilized 105mm l7a1 with 400 pen heat. It also doesnt trigger fuzes and the ammo in the hull does not detonate. They also dropped the premium Leopard a1a1 L44 to 8.7 so it curb stomps t54's.

    So balance up to 6.3 is pretty good, every nation has decent options and interesting options. 6.7 - 7.7 is dominated by Italian and Germany mostly. It's a grab bag of 1945-1955 tanks and much more modern alternatives. Then high tier isn't that bad but the US has a combination of extremely meta tanks coupled with an insane lineup.

    There is fun to be had for sure, but you do have to work around the current stupid OP tank. Some assembly required.

    122mm AP deals with most threats center-mass but the grind was just too much for me

    i occasionally fly my Tempest to relax

    well, here I am having unlocked and bought the t64-a and having just got the t64-b with an over 50% win rate and over 1:1 (if not by much) K and this is getting more comfortable.

    Once you give up on the idea that you might be able to fight abrams on a relatively equal footing and you start living the ambush predator lifestyle it gets much better. I've found a bunch of comfortable nooks that I can get to early game to sideshot people rushing and i'm making a decent living punishing tanks that overextend.

    Now to see if the 64-b is a different animal.

    t-80U confirmed for the parentland, probably 2a4C for the other parentland and M1A1 for the usual suspect.

    They are changing the BR of a couple of very underpowered and some very overpowered tank while leaving some way tanks that are a bit too strong where they are. We'll get more devblogs about the next patch next week. All in all pretty positive about the next update as it stands right now.

    Next thing i'm hoping for is the tunguska, CAS is ridiculous mid game so that would help a. lot.

    Also I know most don't care but they just posted that they will reduce RP and SL cost across the board, and increase reward multiplier to ease the grind.

    I am very, very surprised.

    Economy changes in update 1.87 “Locked on!”



    In the next major update, there are several economy changes that are planned to be introduced, and we’d like to share those with you in advance.

    The following are decreases in the cost of Rank V aircraft (crew costs will be also reduced):


    Vehicle Nation Old SL costs New SL costs Difference
    MiG-15 USSR 1,330,000 790,000 -540,000
    MiG-15bis USSR 1,470,000 990,000 -480,000
    F-86A-5 USA 1,330,000 790,000 -540,000
    F-86F-2 USA 1,750,000 990,000 -760,000
    F-86F-25 USA 1,470,000 990,000 -480,000
    F-86F-30 Japan 1,970,000 990,000 -980,000
    F-86F-40 Japan 1,990,000 990,000 -1,000,000
    MiG-17 USSR 1,750,000 990,000 -760,000


    Changes for ground vehicles at high ranks:


    USSR
    To research the Т-72А, you will first need to research the Т-62М-1.
    To research theТ-62М-1, you will first need to research the Т-55А.
    To research theТ-64А (1971), you will first need to research the Т-10М.
    Japan
    To research the Type 90, you will first need to research the Type 74.
    Germany
    To research the KPz-70, you will first need to research the Maus.
    USA
    To research the M1 Abrams, you will first need to research the XM-803.

    Planned economy changes in the upcoming updates:

    We also plan to reduce the research and purchase costs for aircraft of rank IV-V and for ground vehicles of rank V-VI in one of the future economy changes in order to smooth progression times and research so that players can begin researching the highest ranked vehicles faster.



    Planned changes:

    Reducing the RP costs of researching vehicles and modifications.
    Reducing the SL costs of purchasing vehicles and modifications.
    Reducing repair costs.
    Reducing the cost of ammunition.
    Reducing crew training costs (including experts and aces).
    Increasing reward multiplier

    Only thing I care about tbh.

    Gone on hiatus again personally, but I would assume the player numbers/metrics reflected the shittyness of their changes enough that they are actually making the grind a little less awful again.

    War Thunder has a few really good aspects, but their business model/internal game economy has been a huge pisstake for many years now. Maybe several years down the road we will get some at least halfway modern gamemodes and non-shit maps, making it a game which is more than a lobby grind simulator /s

    server pops are pretty consistent even when they do stupid shit, the average russian is very tolerant of bullshit tbh.

    we'll see how much they actually decrease the grind by, but they're making a pretty strong commitment to it cause they put a popup message when you first log in with a short explanation and a link to the forum post.

    About time they fixed some shit.. I let my premium run out half a year ago and haven't been playing since, cause anything past Tier 5 in GF is just... Boring..
    The game modes are the exact same as when the game was first released, and new maps are just boring.. People either bumrush for the magic circle, or sit back in a forest and camp. With one team having the obvious advantage of being able to shoot from cover, while the other team has to do a gauntlet run, just to get out of their own spawn.

    Some good things with the new update I like though.. We finally get good counters to heli spam and ATGM jets (Tunguska for one), the RP/SL balancing (Which is only what, 1-2 years too late?) and my baby Leo2A5. I'm a bit on the fence about them linking up the Tier 6 tanks to previous ones (Get the Maus to get the KPZ, lolwhat? Or T-10M to T-64A).

    yeah, that's basically my view on the whole thing too except for the leo 2a5.

    As I understand it, that thing will be either very a-historically nerfed, or completely OP in the meta.

    for the linking up, I'm sure there's a good part of it that is to increase the grind a bit, but I will force people to have some kind of lineup before they start playing top BR.

    I'm the perfect example of the contrary, I jumped straight from mid tier V to the t-72a an grinded the whole t80b line with it before researching the t62 - t55 - t10m - t62m1. I played something like 150 games to unlock my second tank where I would die once and leave the game, making for some pretty shitty team play.

    It's also very common to see people doing the same with the abarms, 1 death and GTFO.

    who cares, A1A1 mit 120mm exists already and armor only helps when there's anyone to bail you out

    tanks can go fuck themselves with all the camping aimbotters, air and ships are gut
