The World of Tanks team has been gathering a large amount of statistical data from the first iteration of the Version 8.2 public test. We have thoroughly analysed this data, and as a result, we have decided to postpone the release of the Chinese Tech Tree from Version 8.2 to the next update. This is so that we can take some more time to make corrections and improvements to them in order to give you the best gaming experience.
In the meantime, the rest of the changes that will be coming in the 8.2 update are still taking place as planned.
With the release of 8.2 update, the American Tank Tree will receive a separate branch of new vehicles. The main feature of this new branch is that the three top vehicles will use an autoloader device system. These vehicles are the T69 and T54E1 medium tanks, and the T57 Heavy Tank.
The list of premium tanks will be enriched with three new original vehicles: the Tier VI British Heavy Tank TOG II, a vehicle which became popular among public testers soon after the test started and also received many funny nicknames for its appearance; the Tier VII British Tank Destroyer AT-15A, which is distinct from other tanks of its Tier by its thick front armour; and the Tier VIII French Heavy Tank FCM 50t, which has strong features similar to all top French vehicles: good manoeuverability and excellent dynamics for a heavy tank.
As well as these new vehicles, we are continuing to rework and improve our maps to make best use of the new render. In Update 8.2 we’ve significantly reworked and improved four maps: ‘Prokhorovka’, ‘Redshire’, ‘Erlenberg’ and ‘Ruinberg’.
A more detailed coverage of the changes and specifics in Version 8.2 will be given by World of Tanks Producer, Michael Jivets in the next ASAP video.
Good luck on the battlefields!
