Catching up on news in Armored Warfare (ranked play, ERA, etc.)

Christmas was full of good cheer and family time, but I wanted to do a quick catching up to some things in Armored Warfare land… T-80 to get ERA added We are preparing an upgrade to the T-80 that will amongst other things add an ERA kit. ~SilentStalker, Content Manager Ranked mode coming to Armored Warfare Rich Taylor dropped this tidbit in the Obsidian happy holidays video I posted a few days ago, but SilentStalker...

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...

Rich Taylor answers NA/EU Armored Warfare community questions

The official portal posted the below question and answers and a few of them are probably of interest to most of you. Armored Warfare Special Question and Answers session Question: Will there be more Commanders added to the game? Answer: Yes, more commanders will be added in the future. We also intend to expand the skill selections available for existing commanders. [I need to ask sometimes if the plans for commanders still call for specialized...

Armored Warfare developer responses to high tier questions from the Russian community

Armored Warfare: Project Armata portal posted some developer responses to questions from the Russian community about higher tiers in Armored Warfare. I’d thought the NA/EU Armored Warfare portal may bring these out so I held off doing my usually less clear Russian-English translation. But here we go anyway, with some attempts to further clarify where needed. Armor effectiveness Obsidian is working on the interaction between armor and penetration between the classes. Question: Will armour be modified...

Spooky’s thougths on ICE vehicles P2W and the Armored Warfare developer’s stream answers

Obsidian held their first developer Q&A stream last night. I wasn’t able to watch this live, but was going to provide a synopsis since the recording is available to watch (YouTube video below). However, the portal already has a summation that I can comment on after perusing the stream’s recording: Summation and Spooky’s thoughts (bullets are from the source link, my comments are inside of brackets and orange) It’s possible the tank destroyed ability will be improved...

Obsidian Developer stream coming on Thursday (now Friday)

There is an upcoming event you may want to put on your calendar. Obsidian will be having a developer stream on the Armored Warfare Twitch channel. In the past Obsidian has had a few developers in a conference room at their headquarters in Irvine, CA answering community questions. I don’t know if the event below will be similar, but I hope they keep the replay up too. Also check out the Challenger 1 featured post from the Armored Warfare portal...

Armored Warfare even more news from the forums and elsewhere

Some more news from the forums (and elsewhere) gathered over the last week or so… Using Suppressing Fire does not render your vehicle I think a lot of players forget that Armored Warfare implemented a mechanic that causes your vehicle to be rendered when you hit another tank, regardless of whether you were spotted or not. This rendering is your tank model in the game, not a spot on the minimap. And it only happens...

Armored Warfare Developer responses to community questions

Once again we get some developer responses to some questions from the RU community. This is looking to be a weekly thing after all.   INFORMATION FROM DEVELOPERS Tier 8 premium vehicles are still far away and won’t come before the introduction of tier 7 premiums and tier 10 regular vehicles. The first tier 7 premium will come within a month or two – it’s a variant of a vehicle often requested by players. There...

Developer answers to Armored Warfare RU questions: unbalanced vehicles, base buildings, alliances, and maps

Apparently this has been the week of developer responses to questoins…the below is from the Russian Armored Warfare: Project Armata portal. I’ve tried interpreting the Russian translation but as always, it is a bit rough. If you are not familiar with it, Armored Warfare: Project Armata is just Armored Warfare published by Mail.Ru in Russia. The games are the same but at some point in time, including between the NA and EU regions, I wouldn’t be surprised...

News from the Armored Warfare forum

PvE bot spawning changing soon There have been some hints in the forums that the PvE mode has some nice alterations in the next patch. Having bot spawns be a bit more randomized should be a great addition. In 0.12, spawns get randomized ~SilentStalker, Content Manager When is Armored Warfare patch 012 coming? I’d guess it’ll hit the RU PTS next week, and a release date what, 1-2 weeks after that? So middling December or a...
