Public test has some interesting changes to the MM system. Finally.

Less feeding off of lower tiers for some peeps, more earning your keep so to speak. Should really make the biggest changes we have hoped for.

Looking forward to 8.0 update, hopefully it will be implimented within the next couple of weeks, more realistic lighting, but more importantly, new physics engine, can't wait to push someone off a cliff, or jump off one and crush a lower tier tank under my tracks. Should be plenty of fun.

Aloha, fellow tankers.
Started with WoT yesterday, got to PzIII A with all available upgrades. Everytime I do random battle I am facing KV-1 and other V and IV levels. Still got 5 kills on Malinovka in a single round, though. At 2:00am. Crap!

I have questions.
1. If my tank is destroyed and I escape to garage without waiting for the round to complete, do I still get xp / silver?
2. How to use platoons? If my friend and I join the same platoon, can we go into random game as platoon? How friends get to play, if they are level 2-3, not level 9 M1A2? I looked at tank companies, they are all level 7 or more, it seemed like.
3. I can't purchase HE rounds, no gold is required for them and I have silver. Do HE rounds make any difference?

Thanks!

Also, for some reason, no one is on voice comm. Sad.

1) Yes you can, I do all the time
2) Best way to platoon is with people close to the same Tier, barring Arty because they get special MM, Tank companies are reserved for higher tier players
3) Some tanks don't use HE, it depends on the Cannon Which tank were you trying to load HE into? ANd in order to load HE you need to decrease your loadout on AP.

Thanks, driving my first PzIII last night. Need 7.5cm gun badly. KVs are making burnt burgers out of me.

What if I have two tanks, T2 and T4. My friend has T2 only, so I have to simply chose T2 tank and then platoon with him, eh?

Only use the T2 with him. Dragging him with a T2 is pointless and just messes up the game experience for him.

And, can you please try and edit your post when you have another though to add instead of stacking posts.

What level is your crew at? It makes a big difference.

You're driving a light tank. Use every bit of cover you can. Pick targets that you can damage. Trying to go against any heavy is bad news - it's like a dagger verses a broadsword. Accompany some of your heavies and let them engage, then dart in to harass it - use your speed and smaller size to advantage.

Out of curiosity has anyone had issues with Multi-Card setups since the Patch?
Everything else I have runs great with SLI enabled except now WoT...

My Xfire config even before 8.0 ran like crap with WoT. It improved after I went back to single card, and 8.0 improved fps on the single card system. However by the sounds of the fan, WoT is actually finally using more horsepower from the card since the fan never revved before...

Perhaps it's due to lack of multi-gpu profile still?
