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...

Putin approves of Armored Warfare 7

Russian President Putin praises Armored Warfare: Project Armata

Normally I shy away from politics or people on Armored Talk, but any world leader commenting on a game like Armored Warfare is mention-worthy at least. Russian President Vladimir Putin was a speaker at the 2015 Russian Internet Economy Forum at Moscow’s World Trade Center earlier today. Internet economy is a big deal for all countries, so it makes sense he was there. That he walked the expo floors isn’t too much of a surprise, and it looks like he stopped...

T-72 in Armored Warfare with ICE camo 4

Armored Warfare T-72 legendary article

The portal today put up one of their vehicle in highlight type articles. This time on the T-72. Something a bit different is they are certainly taking the stance the T-72 is a legendary tank. I think there are a lot of legendary tanks out there. Certainly in their own countries there would be some nationalistic pride surrounding homegrown tanks, so maybe this is the new format of a series going foward. As for the T-72,...

ICE Leopard 2AV credit machine

Is the ICE Leopard 2AV a credit making machine? Garbad sent in a humorous contribution indicating that the weak one certainly thinks so… Leo 2AV? More like LEO 2 OP! by Garbad Do you like money? Are you a carebear? Do you wear winter attire year round? Of course you do! That’s why Obsidian Entertainment (OE) made the perfect tank – the Leopard 2AV ICE! This wonderous beast is armored with snow shoveled by Santa himself, using...

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...

Garbad’s How should I equip my Tank in Armored Warfare guide

A nice submission by Garbard supplanting his previous article on how to outfit your vehicles in Armored Warfare. How should I equip my Tank: Damage Stacking, Aim Time Stacking, or Accuracy Stacking? Several months ago I wrote a guide about equipment choices. This guide has been one of the most viewed articles I have written for Armored Talk, especially among casual players. However, things have changed, and I felt like I wanted to expand on...

One of the more interesting features of all but the 430 is the ICE premium vehicles are fully upgraded on the power level. Often premiums are middle of the road for their tier. Not the ICE vehicles, they are equivalent to their fully upgraded counterparts.   To celebrate the upcoming holiday season, My.com and Obsidian Entertainment are proud...
