World of Tanks newest update is live. And finally, the tanks that I’ve always wanted to drive – for no other reason than that THEY’RE ENGLISH! – are now available.
The first tank is imaginatively named the Mark I.
Playing with a 50% crew is really miserable, and doesn’t give a lot of insight as to how well the tank performs. It seems inaccurate; good armor; good gun; slow as anything. But given I have two projects with Tier 1 tanks already, I’m leaving this one alone. Not selling it, mind you.
Next, I reviewed the three lines of tanks that Britain has. There’s a medium tree, and two paths up the heavy tree. For the moment, I’ll move up the medium line, and that means buying a new A13 Mk II.
Other things of note : Prohorovka assault has been removed, so the first thing I did was to re-enable assault in the game. It’s worth a try, as many maps have very fun assaults. Dragon Ridge has also been reintroduced into the game.
Progress notes include :
- Panther unlocked! I will continue playing the VK3002DB for the moment.
- 134K on the VK4502A. Not much free XP will be needed to get the 4502B.
- KV-4 is getting better; the engine upgrade made it much less painful to drive. 12k of 15k towards the upgraded turret.
And golden joystick weekend is about to begin. Happy tanking everyone !
