  1. Recent changes to autocannons ("balance") multiplied issues with red critters, which before were elevated by adding aggressive suicidal waives of Hunters, sphinxes  bots etc. ATGM bots firing barrage of rockets with no delays. Officer bots with visual range normal nullify all player camo tactics. Spawning bots which immediately shot at player. How enjoyable.

     

     


  2. @sdt16How hardcore AW battle path is the matter of individual approach. If you play smart and without the goal to finish the BP entirely in 1/2 or 1/3 of allocated time, BP is not hardcore at all. So if you begin BP challenges 1.5-2 months after whole BP started, you have almost all challenges unlocked and 8 of 10 of said challenges are easy, so playing that way requires less time and you have higher gain. Each challenge gives you 10 points (1 point per stage) to progress equipment in BP vehicles, same points come from each stage of standard missions and from each opening levels. Also, I was lazy to unlock whole equipment within one BP,  instead I just waited for next BP to continue progression and easily complete it. Up to 60-80 points should be very easy to get per one BP, above that value requires grind. 


  3. In this BP i suggest to focus entirely on buying offers in shop.

    Derivatsya is fine vehicle worth getting, and a player should assemble it in cheap way using most attractive daily offers - rare unique and special (got mine already after less than 1h rotation).

    T72CZ (based on my test drive impressions) is vehicle for inadequate price of 140K coins (50K is rank 20, and 20 next ones are 90K for rank 40). to For lesser amount of coins spent in shop a player should able to get - either 1 tier 10, 2 tier 9 or several tiers 7/8.  If one decides to spend whole pool of 140K on rotations alone would give a chance to return some coins and maybe find truly attractive offers.

    TR-85M1 - collector thing, rather not so great impressions from test drive. (my plan to get it in this BP).

    As for this BP main prize, the possible strategy is to ignore T-15/K, and assume it will be obtainable in coin shop in one of next BPs. This shit can be attractive now because of Draco style DPM on steroids, I know how it works and where it ends.

    Got Chally 1 ODS skin, because i wanted it.

    It just seems incredibly stupid that all MBT front plates and turrets are completely invulnerable from the front unless you shoot he or hesh.

    Just...why?

    I do come from WoT and WT. But from a general point of view. The current armor design for MBT dont make sense.

    AW is arcade game. presently with no focus on technical reasoning or common sense.

    I am talking about driver hatches and view ports and cupolas being removed as weak spots

    Most of these things went away in 2017 as part of balance 2.0 (0.19). I may mistake but cupolas as a weakspot was charged even earlier (in 0.14 or 0.15) by applying reduced damage rule to them.

    Rationale is simple - player can hide LFP and cannot cupola. Cupolas are WoT thing,  which makes bunch of tanks vulnerable simply based on this trait alone, in AW even before balance 2.0 the damage was reduced to them (mostly), and in 2021 for more than 1.5y AW there is a new balance 3.0 with whole LFP thing (unless you play low tiers where that thing came just recently).

    T-15 Kinzhal Tier 10 Premium TD (for reaching the maximum Level)

    Correspondingly, we’ve increased the number of Levels from 50 to 60

    What about the feedback that the top reward T15 is not worth effort even with rank 50 and nevertheless they push it on rank 60.

    The Battle Coin Shop will of course be also updated. Aside from the same items as the last time, you’ll be able to find (if you’re lucky or persistent enough) the following new items in it:

    CV90 Mk.IV Tier 8 Premium AFV from the last Battle Path
    CV90105 TML Tier 7 Premium LT from the last Battle Path
    Stridsvagn 2000 Tier 10 Premium MBT from the last Battle Path
    Jomsviking skins from the last Battle Path
    Desert Storm Raid skins (excluding Asad Babil)

    Expect Samurai/Desert Storm/Jomsviking skins spam prevail in shop daily offers.

    Looks like some confirmation to my personal thought that Asad Babil was most interesting and worthy skin from that raid.

    here will also be a special Camouflage with one environmental version awarded per each of the three basic Mission sets.

    (As per desert camo preview) it looks decent and useful compared to every BP camo released since Black Eagle event, but on other side it is very much alike to what you can purchase with gold.

    The biggest one definitely is that the Wars of the Past Battle Path will last 120 days instead of the usual 90 days. In other words, the event will take place between December 2021 and the end of March, 2022.

    Well BP starts in first days of December to make that 120 days till end of March, 2022, right ? This 120 days of BP doesn't make it better, actually it is very boring and exhausting.

     


  7. This next BP can be a breeze a first time for me. T-15/57 is so lowest priority and non-importance to me. If 72M4 is on rank 40, then it is totally flop and no go, if it would be a sink for pieces in shop - doubtful I spend coins on it. Which means i have high chance I stop on rank 30 without issues.

    So i assume, If TR-85M1 is first tank to pick on BP rank 30 and Derivacya is shop-based piece basis, it is perfect awesome deal. Derivacya is fine and unique vehicle too. I like TR-85M1, at least with some footages it gives a deceiving impression of pretty modern, cool looking, agile tank (as for extensive T55 mod). 


  8. This campaign could work better if individual effort and choices had direct result to personal rewards. Active players do whole heavy lifting, but in the end it what is matter are sheer numbers of inexperienced, semi-dead participants from buy-ins. What is always important to player are his rewards, and instead here we play a sort of communist roulette. Yeah, whole drama of story could be still driven by all "choices", but who cares.


  9. Previous raids had this difference that you could some specific reward, such as bp coins, boosters. Now nodes have a mostly camo/skin fragments -- not all of them bad, but doing raid puts you to two choices - either you plan do unlock all nodes, or you skip this raid entirely. To me filling the map with fragments of camos is pretty bad design.

    EDIT:

    I just noticed that node reward also can 1 part of some premium tank, i see CATTB, 2 places with 490 etc. Well, probably useful for people with ~90-99 parts.


  10. All depends.

    There are some over-progression modules and abilities, special retrofits (unlockable on tier 9 leclerc and ttb )

    Battle Path is almost substitute of progression grind, but way more rewarding. 

    What about commanders leveling to colonels? Not sure if you done it, but it is more massive in effort than progression vehicle grind.

    Special Rules:

    • Driving while Black: In a previous article, you chose dark colors for Perihelion’s vehicles. These, however, are not very suitable for hot environments as they absorb heat and make the crew compartment as well as training extremely uncomfortable, even for the accompanying troops. Added an extra 5% difficulty modifier (already reflected in the requirement above)

    Here is where lore-based, narrow-minded rule meets my in-game experience. 

    By playing tier 8/9 I keep seeing 3 GLOPS maps - Narrows, Ghostfield and Roughneck (23 matches so far it was one time Barren, another one is Waterway). They all either forest or winter ones. Not a single time it was desert style map.


  12. I made a comparison of nicknames from present episode 1 list vs the list from old storyline AGDS prize winners https://aw.my.games/en/news/general/storyline-campaign-conclusion 

    I was curious how much nicknames could stay same over the time since 2017 (some were could later changed by user request, some might automatically renamed during merge). 

    The answer is 75

  13. Well if SS and Co plan for greater participation, they should not throw such requirements on verge of BP ending time when players are rather exhausted and burnt out. Even current event for M69A3 SLEP is like 23 total matches/missions played over 25 days is much more relaxing and you actually know what are goals and rewards are in reach. Player has UI tracker to support and simple rules.

    When i read Episode 1 intro, somewhat I felt that it is the end because the timing was wrong and requirements were pretty steep. A lot of filler lines of texts to read through just to find one number (vehicles to kill), I am not saying that 3-4 missions daily is a lot. And I rather think now that community could have better chances with tier 10 prems. When you locked to some tier 8, well at least two vehicles are prems (t72b3 and t2017) so it makes some sense to play them and it all felt to me as "forced" playing, no fun despite RU vehicles are very capable in game.


  14. The game needs to introduce new mid and long term goals (individual and group ones), so it could better engage and motivate players to play the game. For now annual events/contracts/BP/Raid are quite repetitive and boring in their mechanics and nothing seems to change in this scope.  

    Tier 1-3 PvE was dumbed down several years ago with balance 2.0 introduction and further simplification. Tier 4-6 PvE is not in healthy shape either and i have very low expectations they can make the vehicle balance in pve right (and devs never pursued such goal). What once used to be adequate gameplay on low-mid became most silly, trashed version of its own past.

    True and satisfactory CATTB re-balance is never late, except I heard these promises several times already.
