Challenger 2 coming to tier 9 in Armored Warfare 6

Armored Warfare African conflict / Challenger 2 trailer

I was just expecting a normal Armored Warfare tank trailer when they posted the Challenger 2 YouTube video. This is different though. Sure, the Challenger 2 video shots are there and a discussion about armaments. Along with that though is the continuation of the Armored Warfare story line. A bit is dropped about what happened in Africa, but I don’t want to spoil it: Armored Warfare Challenger 2 trailer / African conflict   Some of you...

Streaks and fast matches in Armored Warfare

Are matches in Armored Warfare too fast? Have you noticed matches in Armored Warfare are over sooner than in World of Tanks? I’m not sure I really have, nor do I think if the difference is only a minute or so that I would really think it is much of a deal. From the forums, though: Well… average World of Tanks match duration is 6-7 minutes (depending on tier), so given the fact the AW...

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...

Spooky's commander and crew in Armored Warfare 12

Crew and Progression in Armored Warfare

Crew and commanders in Armored Warfare are areas I expect to see a lot of improvements in over the next year. This doesn’t meant you should ignore them now and the Armored Warfare portal has a guide of sorts up (see below) explaining the crew at least. Different people have different play styles but I have to say I’ll normally go for acceleration choices, aim speed and shoot for the hip, and reload faster then...
