Armored Warfare: Armata Project 13

T-14 Armata, WZ-1224, Leopard 2A6, and more from 0.8 game files

Thanks to a reader’s sleuthing we have some tidbits from the game files to share today: T-14 Armata equipment This last spring when the Russians showed the new Armata platform to the world (is it autumn already?), Armored Warfare announced there will be tiers 9-10 brought to the game. We know one of the special developer question and answer sessions indicated it is a priority for developers to get tiers 9 – 10 out. With the partnership Mail.Ru Group...

high explosive shell damage in Armored Warfare 8

High explosive shells in Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare has a lot of different types of ammunition. In general if you know HEAT (high explosive anti-tank warhead) is going to pen, use it because it reliably does the most damage. If you need extra penetration or are not sure, use AP (armor-piercing). Aiming at a target you know you can’t pen? Use HE (high-explosive). The Armored Warfare portal posted an article by Andrew Rowe today that may shed light on why this...

Armored Warfare commanders in 0.8 18

New commander skills, Early access 5 begins in Russia, OBT is ?

Today early access 5 started on the Russian Armored Warfare: Project Armata server. I am not sure Mail.Ru refers to their testing stages in the same way as My.com does. However, with the 0.8 patch being applied to the closed beta server in Russian they are at a similar point to where My.com’s Armored Warfare will be when EA5 starts on September 3rd, 2015. The release notes are the same we have seen before: 11...

PTS patch in RU, with some shenanigans thrown in, bonus weekend in Armored Warfare

Yesterday the Russian PTS was patched to version 0.8.1356.  I would imagine a patch with these changes (and more) is coming to the My.com PTS server as well. Players should be grateful the below patch was applied to the RU PTS first, though. Why? Well, let’s just say there were some unintended consequences and after a few games I decided to move on. 😉 If you play on the Russian PTS I think the 300-ish...

Armored Warfare news: Developer Dispatch #31

Let’s take another lap around the forums to see what is up in the world of Armored Warfare news… Armored Warfare vehicle graphics I’ve caught flak before for not being one who is keen on tank graphics. If the tanks were like one of the first tank games I tried (Atari Battlezone!) I’d be more concerned. Since I spend most of my time in games looking for cover or concealment and enemy tanks…it is the surroundings...

EA5 is scheduled 11

Early Access 5 in Armored Warfare is scheduled for September

The 5th early access test stage in Armored Warfare is scheduled to run from September 3rd, 2015 until September 20th, 2015. As with EA4, the test will be available for 24 hours a day. There will not be a progression wipe between EA4 and EA5. Keep in mind that prior to OBT, progress will be reset since OBT is really a soft-release of Armored Warfare. With the Russian Armored Warfare: Project Armata entering OBT sometime in...

Garbad Ranks the Tier 2-4 Main Battle Tanks in Armored Warfare

Garbad provides this week’s guest article with images added by me. Just a quick quote from an earlier article about his rating system: Please note that I grade on a curve, and not every tank can get a high score. This doesn’t mean the tank isn’t fun, can’t do well, or you may not enjoy it. It just means that relatively, I found it lacking to its competition and peers. Garbad Ranks the Tier 2-4 Main...
