Next steps unknown…

It will come as no surprise to anyone still coming to this site that the chances of my return to Armored Warfare have been greatly diminished. By the time I returned from my hiatus, started a comeback, and had a personal setback….Armored Warfare had lost momentum. Not just for me, but for many other players as well. My hat is off to Obsidian and My.com for keeping the lights on and continuing development this past...

Spooky, Where Art Thou?

So by some of the comments, texts, skypes, emails, PMs, and search parties looking for me, I’ve gathered I’ve been missed. 😉 I wanted to give you all a sign of life so you know that yes, I am alive and well, and yes, I am peaking back into Armored Warfare realm…but not fully back yet. Unfortunately, Armored Talk doesn’t pay the bills in Spooky Mansion (ha!) and I am still waiting for some other...

Armored Talk hiatus

Many of you know that for the most part Armored Talk is a one-man show. While this means you get a consistent viewpoint (other than guest contributions), it also comes with a downside. I can’t be in many places at once, no matter how ard I try. With some major life changes (don’t worry, they are overall good) and having had 6+ months of frenzied activity in Armored Talk and Armored Warfare taking up a...

Year end bonuses and discounts in Armored Warfare

400% Reputation boost for first win of the day on January 1 will be nice, although I probably won’t be able to play much that day sadly. If you were a holdout buying the Collector’s Editions now is your chance to save a bit of money, 15% discounts. Stuff in real life goes on sale all of the time too, but I am guessing some players who recently purchased these packs are going to have...

Developer Dispatch: Armored Warfare news from the forums on PvE rewards, new dealer, map…ranked combat?

It is that time again when I try to catch you up on some of the most interesting topics from the Armored Warfare staff… PvE changes: AI bot shot delay and AI artillery bots “cheating” Prior to the last patch AI bots at times had near-instant snapshot ability. While this may prove to be a tougher opponent, it meant you couldn’t reliably count on poking out, hitting a bot that wasn’t aggroed on you, and...

Armored Warfare tricks and hints videos…break out the popcorn while enjoying your 3x weekend

First, remember there is a special bonus weekend for the holiday: My.com and Obsidian Entertainment are proud to announce the holiday bonus weekend! From the 24th of December, 2015 to the 27th of December, 2015, the players can earn three times as much reputation from each battle than usual. Second, Armored Warfare had a Tips and Tricks contest where they asked members of the community to submit their best videos. Maybe I need to do something...

Best performing vehicles in Armored Warfare: Project Armata

Ask and you shall receive? I’ve often opined I wish Armored Warfare would release heatmaps, vehicle stats, etc. after each patch. They run the risk of players flocking to perceived stronger areas/vehicles yes, but that shouldn’t really matter. And the interest value in such statistics is high with a lot of people, myself included. Well, the Russian Armored Warfare: Project Armata portal released at least a glimpse into vehicles today. Keep in mind these are...
