I had mixed feelings when Ijoined up during their closed beta period in December , but reckoned that it would be good enough to pass a couple of hours during the christmas holidays. Boy was I wrong..

Matchmaking was among the most problematic and complex elements we addressed in Update , and it’s something we’ll keep an eye on and fine tune moving forward. Since we rolled out fundamental system improvements, we continued to work on it using a .

Free to play, destructible terrain, easy to get started, tons of tanks. World of Tanks has never exactly been a tank simulation, nor is it meant to be one. It is an action game and in some ways bears resemblance to a car-racing franchise along the lines of the Need for Speed or Gran Turismo games. Much like those racing games this one includes the option to start in the garage, tweak and customize and then head out for the fun bits.

But instead of players racing high-performance cars against one another, in World of Tanks players blast away at each other with, well … tanks. There is no infantry to pose a threat with bazookas or panzerfausts—just tank-on-tank action. Today some 78 million registered users climb into the virtual copula and charge into battle. Microsoft took notice along the way and called in Wargaming. This in itself is an interesting move given that Microsoft launched the new Xbox One console back in November, but Microsoft seems committed to the more than 80 million gamers on the aging Xbox It is a downloadable game that requires no monthly subscription and only costs as much as the player is willing to spend.

There is a catch, of course. World of Tanks Xbox Edition is free but it is only available for absolutely nothing for just seven days.


Whether vehicles are stock or fully researched, how they are equipped, nor crew skill is taken into account by the match-maker. Vehicle Tier Vehicle tier is not taken into consideration when balancing teams. This is a common misconception among players. For example, under the current rules a tier 8 medium can be matched against a tier 7 heavy tank.

The only relevance of vehicle tier is to determine the battle tier.

In certain battles, they can’t compete with Tier IX and feel inferior against regular Tier VIII tanks. Goal: Improve the experience for preferential tanks while keeping the preferential matchmaking parameter and their unique characteristics intact.

Matchmaking World of Tanks The composition of tanks in each team is a task of matchmaker. It works in following manner. It takes one tank from the queue and looks at his tier. For example it is IS – russian heavy with tier 7. The matchmaker takes the corresponding line from the table below and sees that the IS has battle tiers from 7 till 9. Randomly is the tier for battle selected.

In our example let it be 8 from 7 to 9 incl.


A massive losing record, mostly concentrated in that first day of the special. However, what is my record for the overall period? How to reconcile this? Well in reality this is not very difficult, apart from the second portion of the period concerned I have had three weeks of losing records, which adds up. Finally in certain tanks I have had some quite long losing streaks, and once again that has magnified the effect of this difficult patch.

What to do about it?

The matchmaker starts by trying to create a ±2 battle using the 3/5/7 template (three vehicles at the top, five in the middle, and seven at the bottom) or one of its variants (e.g., 3/4/8, 3/3/9, etc.).

Considering MM improvements that came with patch 7. On to another forgotten tier 3 jewel: Most of you will be probably be surprised by the pick. What made the gun interesting was weird ammo choices. First two HE shells as seen in the photo are both standard shells, they cost 75 and credits, respectively. As the second HE shell costed twice as more only credits but did nearly half more alpha damage, it was the best shell to use, and coupled with great RoF and high shell arc in a moment , this is what made the tank great.

The high arc of fire allowed the shell to hit the engine decks and roof of some turrets, one of the weakest parts of the tank currently one of the most if not the most armoured tank in the game, the mighty Maus, has 50mm of hull roof armour, and 60mm of turret roof armour , 61mm of penetration proved sufficient to penetrate and deal maximum damage including module damage to enemy tanks, therefore crippling them.

Grenache at Ventana Vineyard. Cinsault at San Lucas Vineyard. Not to worry though, as the unanticipated excess will go into our next vintage of Vin Gris de Cigare , which has been continuously a vintage sell out. In the broader scheme of things, this year seemed to fall in line with the more historic pre-drought years. Picking times were about weeks later than they have been in the last 4 years, and quantity was above average.

They only have one standard set of modules, so you cannot unlock better modules than the ones they have when you buy it. The generate a lot of in game credits per victory, the increase in crew experience is higher, and you can put a crew from a different tank in it, as I explain below. However, there are several differences: The gun on the IS-6 only has far worse penetration, at mm, versus mm on the best gun on the IS-3 The rate of fire is better, at 5,13 shots per minute, against 4,51 at the IS-3 The IS-6 has a lower top speed, at 35 kph, versus 38 kph with the IS-3 The armor is weaker, at least on paper, but in reality the difference is negligible To make a long story short: The premium tanks have distinct weaknesses and strengths and have to be played accordingly.

It is slow, has a long reload time, but the gun depression is great, and the gun is quite good. A very popular premium tank is the german E It is very fast and has an excellent camo rating is difficult to spot behind bushes. The point of using premium tanks is — besides getting more in game credits per battle — to increase crew skills on the crew from another tank.

Nov 06,  · The MM table tells us nothing new really. All the new tanks have normal MM, Type 64 and Chi Nu Kai included. I can’t see the T7 Combat car but I imagine it has a Pz I like MM, at least I haven’t seen tier 3 while playing it yet.

Now, during Personal Rating calculations, the amount of battles is a coefficient which multiplies the sum of other formula components.

Northwest This rustic, rural location may have been a peaceful, agricultural haven at one time, but these days, it is only host to hostile machinery.

Northwest features a scenic, pastoral setting marked by farm equipment and open fields. This map provides a good variety of high and low hotspots, as well as plenty of camouflage opportunities, as the map is peppered with trees. Don’t get too distracted by the scenery, because getting caught in the open on Northwest is a recipe for destruction. Check out the screenshots:
