Armored Warfare news bits from the forums including buffs and PvE’s beginnings in a Developer Dispatch

A quick Friday edition of Armored Talk’s Developer Dispatch…I stopped counting at the 40th issue. This is where I bring you the most interesting news from the forums, developers, publisher staff, and other confirmed sources. Chieftain is being buffed I know you know this already if you follow Armored Talk, but it sounds like it may be in the next patch. Chieftain will very likely be buffed in 0.11 ~SilentStalker, Content Manager What surprises me...

Tier 9 token system in Armored Warfare

We I talked about the upcoming TD special ability and tier 9 vehicle screenshots in Armored Warfare I mentioned there would be a different system for unlocking tier 9 vehicles. Below are the details.

Armored Warfare pumpkin blood trailer – Spooky’s crew wasn’t amused ;)

So today Armored Warfare continues celebrating the best season on earth with a nice little trailer for the game. I have to say though, neither myself nor my crew were too happy about the subject matter being blown up!!! Especially since there was not a disclaimer at the end indicating no pumpkins were harmed during the making of this video. I’ve been offering the crew hot cocoa with marshmallows all morning. I think some are...

Armored Warfare Halloween contest

Now this is a contest Spooky can get behind. ūüėČ If I had any skill whatsoever in carving pumpkins I’d give this a shot. I generally can’t even get a smile to turn out correctly.

Although not being able to find orange hair dye that washes out very easily in time for¬†a special budget...

Shell types in Armored Warfare

There are a lot of different shells in Armored Warfare. I’ve heard the number 61 tossed around but never verified it. Most will fit into a couple of categories and we have our own ammo guide for Armored Warfare that helps in selecting the best shell¬†to use in different situations. Today the portal also put up an overview article that is a nice read if you haven’t seen it yet.   Developer Diary – Shell...

One of those presentations discussed an interesting mechanic being added to tank destroyers. Let’s take a look at unique class abilities and I’ll throw in some tier 9 images at the end. Although one thing many of you may be interested in up front: Unlocking tier 9 vehicles is going to be handled a bit...
