Balancing vehicles in Armored Warfare: Premiums will not be OP

I’ve read various comments in game chat and on the forums that certain vehicles are overpowered (OP) or underpowered. Vehicles out of balance is going to be an ongoing battle for Armored Warfare. One of the initial reasons I was attracted to the game was their willingness to accept this challenge and promising to meet it head on. It was made clear early in the game’s development that Obsidian wanted to have balanced vehicles. Sure, any game developer would...

Armored Warfare tips from ff8

Today the Armored Warfare portal pointed out community contributions, including several links to Armored Talk. They also highlighted a couple of posts in the forums that appears to be quite useful. Since there are some Armored Talk readers who can’t see the photos in the forums or just don’t visit them for some reason, I’ll reformat and add a bit of commentary for you here. The below is a tips post by Relic’s ff8. ff8’s original forum post has...

Armored Warfare listening to Battalions (clans) on ideas for Territory Wars

One of the attributes often associated with the companies behind Armored Warfare is they listen to the player base. Some players may not feel this is true when their ideas are not implemented. The cynics may believe Armored Warfare staff listens too much to the forums. I think most people would agree there is an effort made by Obsidian and My.com to get feedback, though. Any game developer should be listening to their fan base. The developers...

Black Friday trained crew, duplicating previous premium vehicles, and the lottery details in Armored Warfare’s contest

Black Friday Mercs vs previous premiums There seems to be some confusion over the Black Friday Merc tanks that are now for sale. For those of you who already have these premium tanks: [These] are standalone vehicles, not just camouflages. You will essentially have two MBT-70’s. If you don’t find that offer appealing, well, that’s just fine In the future we will be introducing cool camouflages as well, so it’s completely okay to wait until then....

Community driven Tankmania 2015 tournament update

Some of you may recall awhile back the announcement of what is likely the first tournament in Armored Warfare. This isn’t an officially sanctioned event. For one, clan play hasn’t been introduced to Armored Warfare yet, and secondly the tournament is being run by an Armored Warfare community. Still pretty nice. It seems like there have been a few rule changes (such as allowing premium vehicles) and they now have some pretty nice prizes for...

Armored Warfare special tank camouflage and red skull pattern revealed

So it seems the Russian portal’s video today may have showed off the upcoming Merc tanks. As mentioned before these are special versions of the: LAV-150-90 AMX 10p-90 MBT-70 VFM5 zhalo The video showcases other news (in Russian) but towards the end it shows off black camouflaged vehicles with red skull decals. Snazzy. I’ve embedded the video queued up to play the portion that shows off these tanks, but I also took some screen grabs from...

Black Friday event or specials to be announced tomorrow, MBT-70 Merc

Special Armored Warfare event I covered a SilentStalker quote awhile back that seemed to indicate the collectors editions were going to be altered somehow on Black Friday, but there hasn’t been much news about this. It seems like there will be some kind of an event, and we can expect an announcement tomorrow: The events will be announced tomorrow. ~SilentStalker, Content Manger [comment made November 25th, 2015] Yep there will be an event. A pretty cool...
