Impressive, some improvements should be made. Super fun, great strategy involved, however there are some very rude players that cant handle defeat. Also, the matchmaking system often makes teams quite unfair, making one team almost guaranteed to win, while the other has almost no chance to win. Overall, the graphics are pretty good for a mobile game, and over time they are very much improving. I really like how the graphics are adjustable so that even weaker devices can handle this game. Since this game has started, the amount of available tanks has increased by a HUGE amount, and some balances and improvements have been made to tanks to make this game fair. A lot of people complain about the kv tank lines being too powerful, however they are balanced out by being quite slow, and their fire rates are slow, along with several weak spots that can be hit from the front. And some use of strategy helps to take out tough tanks too. Overpowered Oct 13, Destore 73 Kv is extremely over powered, one shots a Chi two! They are basically unstoppable!

Early history — Attendees of the Space Invaders Championships attempt to set the highest score The earliest known video game competition took place on 19 October at Stanford University for the game Spacewar.

Thomas Hobbes Thomas Hobbes is an Australian uni student hiding out in his mother’s basement waiting for the singularity to arrive. As a backup plan he is secretly hoping to avoid the perils of an actual career by becoming a writer and travelling the world. It was, it seemed, a time of great peril, when Britain stood alone against the monstrous tyranny of Nazi Germany.

Few myths are more enduring than those forged in conflict. Stories of the Trojan War, of the three hundred Spartans, of Genghis Khan and Waterloo and Trafalgar—these are some of the most enduring tales in our culture. Looking at them with a closer eye however, the reputation of these events tends to far exceed the reality. There were, for instance, not just three hundred Spartans guarding the pass at Thermopylae.

Modern estimates put the strength of the Persian army at between 70, and , men, rather than a million.

Starting from Update 2. Read below for all the details. Legendary Camouflage In Update 2. A legendary camouflage is a special colour scheme applied to only one vehicle model. Just like universal camouflage, a legendary camouflage can be installed in any slot for winter, summer and desert maps. Tanks were available for purchase before the introduction of this camouflage type will be able to resupply their legendary camouflages for free after each battle. The distinctive feature of legendary camouflage, in addition to its stunning design, is the possibility to temporarily remove it and repaint the tank according to its standard historical pattern.

In such case the name of the tank will also change to the standard one: Type 62 In the future, legendary camouflage will have the standard resupply price in credits, which depends on the vehicle Tier, for all vehicles with the exception of the already given out.

Release Notes

The improved matchmaker builds two teams with several key criteria in mind: Comparable in their aggregate combat parameters. Diverse in vehicle types and versatile enough to provide an engaging gaming experience. Balanced in a way that gives both sides a chance at victory.

Call of Duty: World at War from Activision for the Xbox redefines World War II gameplay Battle against fearless Japanese and German soldiers in epic infantry, vehicle, and airborne missions across Pacific and European locations.

At tier 5 it is one of the first true heavies encountered by most new players heavily armored, slow, good gun and many do not know how to damage one correctly. The index at the bottom of each picture describes a few abbreviations used and also the format in which the armor details are described in. Effective Armor EA refers to the overall effectiveness of the armor without normalization. The armor values are presented in three different scenarios for the angled view of the tank. The first one is the avoid shooting any heavily angled areas as you will bounce off a lot.

Even the UFG 2 can bounce a lot of shells since it is near the 70 degree auto-bounce angle although it is somewhat negated since it is low to the ground. Avoid shooting the beak at all costs as it will bounce shot after shot. The main strong points are the turret since it is thicker than the hull and also the areas where the tracks overlay the hull armor. Just fire away at the side hull armor and be careful of not hitting the purple track sections since there is no hull behind those areas.

Aim towards the rear of the KV-1 to set it on fire fairly often shots will do it. Use the side and frontal sections for turret armor information and for the hull all of the effective armor and armor values against AP are listed in the picture. The best locations to aim are the frontal weak spots unless the KV-1 angles a lot which opens up the upper side hull armor.

The upper rear hull armor is only 60mm making it easier to damage but with a smaller chance of hitting the engine compartment.

Matchmaking mechanism explained

You’re also suffering from tank destroyer effect on matchmaking. Think of it this way to make it easier – TDs are really counted more like a half tier above their own, so your tier 4 TD is really like a 4. This has to do with their ability in both cases to wield armament bigger than an equivalent tank can.

When my weapons do damage them it’s only a couple of percent and their weapons will one-shot me. If you’re really focusing on the TD line then you really need to be hiding and sniping rather than advancing to the point of being spotted and splatted. Once you’ve learned where to shoot the enemy tanks, how to take advantage of cover and knowing the limitations of most TDs, things will improve greatly.

We appear to be living in a clown world. Men are turning themselves into women, women are turning themselves into men, and brainwashed kids, god bless ‘em, don’t know what to turn themselves into.
