  1. From the Tank museum Bovington David Fletcher looks at the British WW2 Coventry Armoured Car. It never saw service and was already considered obsolete by the time it was built. View the full article
  2. NOTE: in this iteration of the sandbox, we test HE shells for tech tree and some reward tanks only, there will be no changes in artillery; the difference in the damage values of some artillery shells is a mistake The average penetration marker for HE shells has been removed – it sows 0 mm; except for artillery. RNG of +/- 25% remains. As already seen.

  3. Join the Testing! The next iteration of shell rebalancing tests is just around the corner, and World of Tanks needs your help again! This time you have the opportunity to try out fundamental changes in the mechanics of dealing damage with HE shells. The testing will again be open to all tank commanders and will be held on the Sandbox server—join it and give us your feedback! Why Rebalance HE Shells? In the two previous iterations of Sandbox, we tested changes in the mechanics of the two main types of shells in our game—standard and special. We reworked the parameters of standard shells, after which the demand for special ones also changed. The main goal of these changes during the previous Sandbox testing was to make standard shells more popular than special ones, and to slightly reduce the effectiveness of special rounds. These changes worked well, and now we are ready to take the next step towards the complete rebalancing of shells in World of Tanks, we need to rework HE shells. We couldn’t leave them unattended, because such significant changes in the mechanics of standard and special shells would inevitably affect High-Explosive ones, too. Moving Forward Changes from previous Sandbox iterations (the revision of the standard shells and changes in the number of hit points for all vehicles in the game) worked well, and they will also be included in the next iteration, in which you can try out the new changes. We’re currently testing the mechanics for dealing damage with HE shells only for regular tanks. This does not apply to SPG rounds or HESH. We will test them in a separate iteration, but only if we receive positive results from the current Sandbox tests. The mechanics of dealing damage with HE shells are perhaps the most complicated aspect of our game to understand. It consists of a large number of stages and takes into account numerous parameters for the calculation. Let’s take a closer look. The HE shell hits the armor, and the armor penetration is calculated depending on whether the armor is penetrated or not. If the armor is penetrated, damage from the full nominal damage is calculated. If the armor is not penetrated, damage is also calculated, but only from half the value of the nominal damage. Next, the damage application point is calculated. Simply put, a weak spot is chosen in the radius of the sphere where the damage is done. The value of half the nominal damage is reduced proportionally to the armor thickness and other factors at the damage application point. In addition, the damage calculation is affected by whether a Spall Liner is mounted or not. After all these calculations, we arrive at the total damage value. But when we talk about calculations of this mechanic, most of the current aspects are outdated and don’t match the current realities of the game. This doesn’t allow us to fine-tune the effectiveness of HE shells for specific guns, and that’s exactly the aspect we want to change. What Are the Current Issues With HE Shells? Our players rarely use High-Explosive shells as standard ammo for reliably dealing damage. This mainly happens when playing on vehicles with calibers of 150 mm and above. For lower and medium ones, HE shells are often used to: Reset the base capture progress Finish off an enemy low on HP Deal damage in a situation where it’s impossible with other shell types On the contrary, the effectiveness of HE shells on medium and small calibers is very low, and the use of HE rounds in the above situations doesn’t guarantee a result. At the same time, HE rounds can cause huge damage to weakly armored vehicles, and very often this happens by accident, when you shoot without carefully targeting your enemy’s weak spots. The amount of damage is always different, and even an experienced player cannot predict it in each specific case. Given all of the above, the main goal of the changes for us is to balance the effectiveness of High-Explosive shells for all guns and calibers existing in our game. We want to reduce the amount of total and alpha damage on large calibers from 150 mm and above, and to improve the performance of HE shells on lower and medium calibers in specific situations. How will we achieve this? Let’s take a closer look. 1. High-Explosive Shells Armor Penetration Removal Yes, that’s right—we want to completely remove the ability to penetrate armor with HE shells. If the tests are successful, then HE rounds will no longer have an “Armor Penetration” parameter. Initially, High-Explosive shells had this characteristic to simulate HE damage mechanics in a more realistic way, but as stated above, HE shells in World of Tanks are almost never used for reliably dealing damage. Even with a skillful aim, penetrating and inflicting huge damage is not guaranteed. We want to avoid a huge spread in the final value of damage, when players cannot predict whether they will inflict a nominal value damage, a third of it or no damage at all. 3. Nominal Damage Reduction Given the above, such a high nominal damage inflicted by HE shells is no longer needed, and we’ll significantly reduce it depending on the caliber of the gun. The proportion of damage and the specific caliber will also change. Previously, the base damage for the highest calibers (150 mm and above) was truly great. Now the damage gain with increasing calibers will be smaller and more consistent. Below is a table comparing old and new damage values for the main calibers in the game (parameters may vary depending on the individual tank or shell settings). Caliber Old values New values 76 mm 156–260 55–95 90 mm 270–370 95–115 105 mm 360–510 130–180 120 mm 440-530 180-190 122 mm 450-560 180-190 130 mm 580–750 210–270 150 mm 890–950 320–330 183 mm 1750 480 4. Damage Decrease From the Center of the Splash In the new system, damage is calculated from 1 in the center to 0.1 along the edge. The fundamental difference between the new system and the previous one is that splash becomes less “dense”: even at a small distance from the center of the explosion, the damage is greatly reduced. At the same time, it remains possible to cause low damage at the edge of the splash. The splash effectiveness will be reduced, especially closer to the center. Accordingly, HE rounds will cause lower damage to internal and external modules, as well as crew members. 5. Changing the Tracing Algorithm and the Minimal Damage Damage dealt will be much more predictable, not only due to the removal of penetration, but also thanks to two other components: 1. Changing the tracing algorithm—finding points for causing damage to various armor groups, modules, and crew members. The current algorithm often “doesn’t find” obvious weak spots, and HE shells may not cause any damage at all. The new algorithm “finds” the required points more often and more accurately than the current one. Simply put, the chance to “find” a weak spot in the enemy’s armor is higher and calculated more accurately, but the amount of damage dealt is much lower. The new algorithm is not fine-tuned yet, so it will be adjusted depending on the results of the upcoming testing on the Sandbox server. 2. The ability to inflict minimal damage due to the splash mechanics (more on this below). Damage done in this way will not be high, but in critical situations, it will increase the possibility of causing at least minimal damage (for example, to prevent base capture) to almost 100% (if you hit the armor or the module, thereby damaging it). Below, under the spoiler, is more detailed information on how the new mechanics will work. Splash Mechanics Splash mechanics will include three components: Shrapnel from the shell explosion Spalls on the outer surface of the armor Splash radius Now more about each of them. Shrapnel From the Shell Explosion Shrapnel is formed by the metal jacket of the shell, when the explosion breaks it into separate pieces. They scatter around in a sphere and get stuck in obstacles. After rebalancing, fragments will scatter only to the first obstacle in their way—this is the key difference compared to the shrapnel acting according to the laws of the current mechanics. As a result, shrapnel cannot damage internal modules, except for vehicles with open cabins. Armor damage from this mechanic is absorbed linearly—the thicker the armor, the greater the absorption. For the player, this change means the exclusion of illogical cases of causing damage when, for example, an engine inside the hull catches fire after getting hit in the commander’s hatch. Spalls on the Outer Surface of the Armor Armor spalls are formed on the outer surface of the armor during the explosion of a High-Explosive shell. They are scattered on a conditional “cone” perpendicular to the armor. It doesn’t matter at what angle the shell hits the armor. Spalls damage the armor and can damage the internal modules and crew members. Like shrapnel, spalls cannot penetrate obstacles. The damage from this mechanic is also absorbed linearly—the thicker the vehicle’s armor, the higher the absorption of spalls. For most HE shells, all three mechanics work simultaneously, but can be configured differently. For each armor group, each module, and each crew member, damage is calculated for each mechanic (if the mechanics, in principle, can cause damage to a specific object). Splash Radius Unlike shrapnel and armor spalls, the splash radius is not shielded by obstacles. In this case, the damage is only reduced. Also, the splash radius doesn’t cause damage to crew members, and the armor absorbs it non-linearly (the thicker the armor, the greater the absorption, but the armor cannot completely absorb the damage from the splash). This is why HE shells will inflict at least minor damage on almost any armor. What Will Happen to HE Shells After These Changes Take Effect? HE shells will do less damage on average per shot (up to 66–75% of the previous damage value). HE shells will do less critical damage to internal and external modules and crew members. It will be impossible to set fire to the engine if you hit the commander’s hatch. There will be virtually no cases when damage doesn’t occur at all when a HE round hits the armor (excluding spaced armor). This will help to improve the “behavior” of HE shells, for example, when preventing base capture or finishing off an enemy with only a few HP remaining. HE shells will expand their scope of use. Now they will be effective not only at large, but also at small and medium calibers. Weakly armored vehicles will no longer receive such enormous damage from penetration. They will still take more damage than heavily armored tanks, but not 3 times more. How Do We See the Use of the Reworked HE Shells? We want to further increase the impact of situationality in the use of High-Explosive shells. In a nutshell, firing mainly with HE rounds will put you at a disadvantage. Instead, you should use them in the following specific game situations where they will be more useful than before: Resetting base capture progress. Now the chance to reset the capture is much higher. Finishing off opponents low on HP. Immobilizing enemy vehicles. For the reworked HE rounds, the chance of tracking or damaging an external module is higher. Join the Test—Your Feedback Is Important!

  9. Double-barrelled vehicles can shoot in two different ways: Sequential: allows you to fire the guns one after another. This works just like Italian autoreloaders, just with a two-shot clip. After firing the first gun, it reloads and the second one activates. You don’t need to wait for the first gun to reload and can shoot as soon as the guns have switched. If you do, however, the reload progress of the first gun will be reset. Double shot: as it says, both guns fire at the same time. Wait until both are loaded, then hold the left mouse button for a few seconds to prepare and trigger the double shot. After that, both guns are locked and will not reload for some time. Then they will reload one after another. IS-3 II (Tier IX) The main appeal of all the vehicles with double-barrelled guns is obviously firepower. The maxed-out IS-3 II boasts two 122mm guns, each dealing 390 points of damage. One well-placed salvo can blast off ~800 hit points. The gun takes 10.7 seconds to reload and 3.5 s to switch guns. A double shot is prepared in 3 s locked for seven seconds after. Aside from top-notch stabilisation, the accuracy is 0.4 m at 100 m. Its standard AP shells penetrate 243 mm of armour, the special APCR ones 292 mm. However, it has rather mediocre armour and just 1,800 hit points, so be cautious on the battlefield. Only the turret offers some protection, with 250 mm frontally and up to 130 mm on the sides. In terms of mobility, the top speed is fine with 38 km/h, the power-to-weight ratio of 12.5 hp/t is average, and the IS-3 II doesn’t turn that fast. Its view range is 380 m. ST-II (Tier X) Of course, it’s only fair to place the real-life project of a double-barrelled tank at the top of the new branch. The ST-II is armed with two 122mm guns, each dealing 440 points of damage. The gun takes 11.7 seconds to reload and 3 s to switch guns. A double shot takes 2.5 s to prepare and is locked for five seconds after. It boasts a dispersion of 0.4 m, an aiming time of 2.9 s, and incredible stabilisation. Its standard AP shells penetrate 258 mm of armour, the special HEAT rounds 340 mm. As for its survivability: the turret front is up to 250 mm thick, whereas the hull boasts 150 mm frontally and 140 mm on the sides. With 2,500 hit points it is more resilient than the previous vehicles. The view range is 390 m, and its mobility compares to other heavies. While the top speed reaches 40 km/h, the power-to-weight ratio of 12.2 hp/t is average at best. Beware of the turret traverse speed, it’s only 16 °/s. Overall, these heavy tanks feature strong turrets and fair mobility. In battle, play just like other tanks. But when an opportunity arises, take advantage of the sequential or double shot option to finish off the enemy . Note: The above-mentioned characteristics for both vehicles are subject to change.

  14. The ninth episode of Frontline 2019 will start on 14 October at 07:00 CEST and will be available until 21 October at 04:00 CEST (UTC+2). This is your chance to experience epic 30v30 battles, win heaps of rewards, and join the race for formidable reward tanks! We also have news concerning the final Frontline episode. It will take place between 18 November at 06:00 CET and 25 November at 03:00 CET (UTC+1). The drums of war are beating loudly, Commanders! The ninth episode of Frontline brings you closer to exclusive reward tanks, including the unique AE Phase I. If you haven’t grabbed other reward vehicles yet, now is the best time to jump back in and make the most of the penultimate Frontline episode! Just like in the last two episodes, you will have the opportunity to boost your progress thanks to Personal Reserves. You can get a maximum of 20 Reserves—ten for completing special combat missions a week before the start of the episode, and ten available in the in-game shop for gold. The cost of one Reserve in the shop remains at 250 gold. Fight on the Frontline, use Personal Reserves, and get your rewards faster! The AE Phase I: This Predator Is Worth Sweating Over! In the previous episode, only the most skilled commanders could get this Frontline-exclusive beast. This time, it will be available to a wider range of players, so don’t miss your chance to park this special Tier IX American heavy tank with four segmented tracks in your Garage! Featuring a free built-in Large Repair Kit consumable, the AE Phase I offers its own level of tactical versatility. It snipes well, brawls decently, and can jump into a 1v1 fight and come out on top. Its gun packs a serious punch, complemented by a good rate of fire. Remember: having hefty armor doesn’t mean the AE Phase I is suited to frontal assaults, so you’ll still have to choose your moments for doing damage, staying between the first and the second lines of attack. Kraftwerk: The Exam Has Been Passed! The previous episode was a test for the new map, Kraftwerk. Recreated in a winter setting, it offers a wide variety of landscapes and historical buildings. We’re still studying your feedback and have already detected some areas where we see room for improvement. In particular, episode 8 has showed that the defensive team had a certain advantage over the attackers, primarily due to the difficulty of capturing zones A, B and C. To make the game more fair and balanced, we slightly reworked the landscape of these sectors to make it easier for the attacking team to succeed. Let’s take a closer look. Zone A Fixed bushes, cleared gaps. Added bushes near the bridge on the road and organized access to them. The bridge and adjacent facilities were moved, houses were added in the village. The slope is now more convenient for arrival. The pedestal with the tractor was slightly expanded. As a result of moving the bridge (point 3), another street was added in the village, with several houses. Zone B The walls of the ruins are deployed for better firing at the defenders. One pile of garbage was removed in the castle and the wall was changed. Added bush to help the attacking team. Added shelter. The tower in the ruins is slightly put forward to complicate shelling. Zone C The concrete zone was increased, which worsened the position of the defenders and created an additional balcony for the attack. Extended arrival at the firing position. Added concrete blocks that reduce the firing zone of attackers from the bridge. Concrete blocks removed. Removed bushes. Finally, map lighting was reconfigured to make it more comfortable for players’ eyesight. Kraftwerk hasn’t come without minor flaws, but no critical issues have been found with it, so the map will remain in the map pool. Keep on exploring it, hone your skills and team tactics, and earn epic medals along with other rewards! Frontline T-Shirt Can’t get enough of Frontline?
