The vehicle’s armoring matches its exterior: a solid turret and hull featuring armor plates placed at rational angles. When facing lower- or same-tier enemies, you can take maximum advantage of the vehicle’s armor (especially that of the turret). In clashes against enemies of higher tiers, you should play somewhat more carefully and use the gun’s wide depression angle in combination with the turret armoring, or fight from the second line.

Although a modest 35 km/h, you can rely on the AE Phase I to accelerate quickly to its top speed, and maintain it.
   

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

Minimap Zone A

Expand
  1. Fixed bushes, cleared gaps.
  2. Added bushes near the bridge on the road and organized access to them.
  3. The bridge and adjacent facilities were moved, houses were added in the village.
  4. The slope is now more convenient for arrival.
  5. The pedestal with the tractor was slightly expanded.
  6. As a result of moving the bridge (point 3), another street was added in the village, with several houses.

Zone B

Minimap Zone B

Expand
  1. The walls of the ruins are deployed for better firing at the defenders.
  2. One pile of garbage was removed in the castle and the wall was changed.
  3. Added bush to help the attacking team.
  4. Added shelter.
  5. The tower in the ruins is slightly put forward to complicate shelling.

Zone C

Minimap Zone C

Expand
  1. The concrete zone was increased, which worsened the position of the defenders and created an additional balcony for the attack.
  2. Extended arrival at the firing position.
  3. Added concrete blocks that reduce the firing zone of attackers from the bridge.
  4. Concrete blocks removed.
  5. 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!
