Armored Warfare patch updates to 0.11 on the RU PTS

This may not be of interest to a lot of players, but to those who play on the Russian PTS and/or following how tier 9 vehicles play you may want to take a look at some recent changes. Back to back patches applied. Remember, the PTS is just that, a testing server for last minute changes before making the 0.11 patch live to the rest of the world. That, and these are translated from Russian...

Armored Warfare developer news on gameplay 21

Armored Warfare news from the forums, including no more team damage in PvE!

PL-01’s role in Armored Warfare For such a lonely vehicle, the PL-01 in Armored Warfare sure seems to drum up a lot of conversation. If I recall correctly when the PL-01 was first introduced to Armored Warfare, it sparked comments about prototypes and their role in the game. Initially, the PL-01 was coming to PvE before being placed somewhere in PvP, then it appeared off to the side on tech trees. Currently, you can see the PL-01...

Armroed Warfare’s story and why it is in bits and pieces, plus ENEMIES OF ARMORED WARFARE – ELITE LLC

Something I found interesting when I was out at Obsidian was a small comment by their CEO and owner, Feargus Urquhart. He mentioned their writers actually have stories behind the maps in Armored Warfare. There is a reason this certain object is knocked over on this map, or such wreckage is placed in this corner. Players may only see 10% of the story Obsidian writes for the game, but because they spend the time to detail it...

World of Tanks takes a jab at Armored Warfare

I did a post not too long ago where I pointed out some fun potshots Armored Warfare has taken at World of Tanks. Namely when Armored Warfare: Introduced the much sought after Type 59 Selected a 707m draw radius for their render range Made a ghost shell for Halloween That’s not a tank!!! Seems World of Tanks tried returning the favor with this animated gif: The joke is obviously putting the massive E-100 (tier 10...

Realism vs Arcade…and gun depression in Armored Warfare

Armored Warfare is a game about tank combat. Designers could have tried to make a tank game as realistic as possible by only allowing players to look through view ports and implemented a more realistic scenario of one shot kills. This type of game may appeal to tank enthusiasts, but it would not have a mass market appeal. Obsidian could have also gone a completely different direction. Instead of trying to be ultra-realistic they could...

Battalion (clan) contest in Armored Warfare

Even though it appears Armored Warfare’s end game content (Territory Wars) for battalions (clans) is a ways off it isn’t stopping them from ramping up the fun for people who want to play together. This looks to be a fun event and boils down to: A night of mingling on the official community TeamSpeak server (this Friday the 13th. Scary date, maybe I need to hop on. 😉 Note: The purpose of this even is...

Tier 9 MBTs in Armored Warfare: gameplay and a brief look at effective armor

Ever since I posted the vehicle specs and upgrades of the tier 9 vehicles in Armored Warfare it seems like I have been reading a lot of comments both here and on the official forums that certain tanks are OP (overpowered) or broken. Having had enough games on the Russian Armored Warfare Public Test server to form an opinion, I can say that while some are better than others, for my style, I don’t see any...

Tier 9 vehicle specs and upgrade screenshots from Armored Warfare 0.11 update

As usual these are subject to change between the time they are tested on the Russian PTS (where these screenshots were taken) and when Armored Warfare patch 0.11 hits on November 17th. However, I’d expect most (if not all) to remain the same. NOTE: the upgraded specs are shown with various retrofits equipped for different vehicles. These were set up to play once they had all the equipment unlocked. BMPT-72 Terminator 2 in Armored Warfare’s 0.11 update...

Custom game, new decals, spot warning, and new sound screenshots form Armored Warfare 0.11 update

Some screenshots from Armored Warfare’s 0.11 update showing some nice changes. And one addition, creating a custom game. Custom games in Armored Warfare Think of these as training rooms. Either for a clans to start practicing against each other or you and a friend or more exploring maps. Pick a match type Pick the privacy level of a custom game Or select a game from a list that is publicly available Custom game lobby once you...
