More upcoming vehicles and confirmed tweaks in Armored Warfare
Just a quick post to catch up on some of the confirmed vehicle changes in Armored Warfare.
Some more vehicles coming soon to Armored Warfare
Pretty much whenever my sources say vehicles are coming it is always with the caveat that Armored Warfare is still a game in testing. Plans change. Vehicles get delayed. But here is a response by Armored Warfare’s content manager that you may be interested in (pay attention to the boldfaced/red vehicles that are not already in the game):
T95 medium tank
Panhard AML 60/90
Bernardinin MB-3 Tamoyo
Denel G6 Rhino
Type 10 MBT
The bold vehicles are already in the game, have been announced or have high chance of appearing in relatively near future. No promises though. ~SilentStalker, Content Manager
Leopard 2 armor is being reviewed by Obsidian
I don’t think I had the Leopard 2 on my list of vehicles that needed changing, but then again, I haven’t played it yet in OBT
The Leopard  armor is currently under revision by the developers for potential issues ~SilentStalker, Content Manager
The C1 Ariete is getting a look over too
You know, I keep getting asked about this tank. And I know a few of the reader-submitted questions for me to ask Obsidian also deal with the Ariete. I confess, I didn’t play it much in early access. I have it unlocked on the Russian PTS so maybe I need to jump into it and see what the fuss is about. I know it is the ugly stepchild of the MBT bunch since it trades away some armor to be more mobile, but that isn’t always a bad thing.
The developers are checking the Leopard 2 armor for issues (same goes for Ariete) ~SilentStalker, Content Manger
T-72A is underperforming
Alright, chatted with Richard Taylor.
He confirms that T-72A is underperforming, they’ll have a look at it.
The armor is not bugged, that’s just a myth from EA times. They’ll have a look at the Ural and the T-72A (especially the T-72A) so a buff can be expected. ~SilentStalker, Content Manager
So we have been right that something is wrong, but the popular consensus it is the armor may be off. Either way here is hoping they get it fixed with one pass.
Ahh yes, I think somebody posted in my previous article about predicting buffs in Armored Warfare that I forgot to mention the XM-1 as being overpowered. I didn’t for the simple reason that I haven’t confirmed it myself by playing it a lot. Yes, a lot of players say it has OP armor, but there seem to also be plenty saying it is fine. When that happens I need to form my own opinion by playing it more or wait to see what Armored Warfare’s stats show. Looks like they are at least looking into it:
We are keeping an eye on the XM1. With that being said however, for a MBT to be practically impervious to penetrations from front alone is not a sign of being OP by definition. MBT’s ARE supposed to be tough – you fight them by flanking them (especially in anything lighter than another MBT), not by slugging it out head to head.
Star Wars dealer for Armored Warfare
It seems Armored Warfare just can’t escape Star Wars. I suppose that is what you get for sharing OBT days with a major entertainment franchise.
Behold, the Hutt Cartel dealer in a galaxy far away…
And yes, this is just a joke. Or will it be? Could we smell some future April fools special edition game in Armored Warfare’s future? Probably not, considering the time and effort that would have to be put into this, but the new Community Manager Spunky did have this to say:
This is now on my office window.
Hmmmm, with that last tidbit I am ducking out of this post before the non-Star War fans see it. 😉
