It may just be my Windows 10 installation, though within the Application under News, the Video doesn't have a play button, that said the link above works.

Who actually asked for this?

The nine pairs of slots in the video did not include binoculars. Have all of my TDs just been nerfed?

More like discourage TDs to camp because players think TDs are meant to camp when they were actually meant to support just from a longer distance and easy to hide

I'm not sure who requested this change, but this is a major change... bigger than new game mode.  This affects all the game mechanics within the game, I just hope it's properly tested before release.  *fingers X*

 

This is more like major release (R4.0) and not a dot release!


 

Good luck on the battlefield!

>>>>>>>>>GUYS HELP<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>GUYS HELP<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>GUYS HELP<<<<<<<<<<<<


So, I leaned that in 3.8 update the hole equipment system will be changed. I have 2 simple questions about it.

I have currently around 60 tanks at my garage and all of them are equipped with all 3 slots. It cost me more or less 30-40 million credits. I also have grind myself with all tanks up to tire 9.

Questions:

#1. After the update will i get all my credits back as 3.8 update will remove the current equipment system?

#2. Do I have to play with each tank to unlock the new 2-9 slot equipment system? Or, do I have to play to unlock the new 2-9 slot equipment system on one single tank to access for all the other tanks for the same tire?

 

Note: Depending on your reply I'll decide to sell my all current equiments, as they will give me back at least half of the credits back which I have spend currently.

 

Thank you

Its my understanding that any tanks currently fully equipped will be given full access to all equipment , partially equipped will recieve refund

I'm not gonna play now. This update will make go out. What's happen to other player that doesn't have gold. Wargaming just show us we need gold to skip. I think 3 equipment system is enough for blitz. Even WoT doesn't change their system. But why blitz?

according to Sk8xtrm who already has access on contributor account & has made a video explaining everything u would be wrong. A fully equipped tank gets as compensation only first level unlocked & a bunch of spare parts.

WOW, russian meds just got nerfed even more. RIP russian mediums.

This new update sucks especially for me as i drive the obj 140 a lot with its low pennetration.

Every heavy tank driver will be using the extra 5% armour equipment. Can u imagine maus and is 7 with extra 5% armour, not to mention plus 5% armour to the lower plates of t110e5 and t110e4 tanks. How am i gonna pen them without choosing the extra 5% pennetration  and loosing the gun rammer for my obj 140.

I am forced to give up my improved dpm which is the only thing special about the 140. With the current patch i can pen weak spots of heavy tanks while using a gun rammer but this new patch basically gives me a handicap of not being able to use gun rammer if i want to pen reliably .

I bet the refund 4 equipment gonna suck too. T.T

Update 3.8 equipment changes are a joke, WG dont give a rats about improving the game, making money is their prime concern.They have no respect for their customers or the Blitz gaming community. This update is nothing but a blatant rip off, getting players to pay again for equipment they all ready paid for is just a blatant disregard for players. They also added timers just to add insult to injury. Now they need people like Bushka to help them sell their rip off scheme, I mean the guy makes great videos but when I questioned his "always positive" opinion on everything WG do and suggested he is practically a WG employee he resorted to insulting me personally and calling me names, not much class at all I'm afraid.

How can WG possibly expect anyone to have any respect for them at all, the M60 caper, the IS6 debacle, now this, honestly for a multi million dollar company they sure as hell must have an under-paid recruitment officer!

Your own reply explains why TD's need good eyes.

Sadly, I have to agree with a lot of comments here... the 3.8 upgrade has completely separated those with Gold from those without.  Having Gold will improve your WR, and unfortunately without Gold, you are effectively back to a Stock Tank performance. If like me, you've gone back levels to try and improve WR, then it's now no longer feasible.

 

Also, the recent change in Tank garage Scenary should result in some law suits against WG since it's Racially offensive.
