BWC NEWS

Last month, Wargaming released the massive Update 9.18 for World of Tanks. The update alters many of the game’s core elements, such as an all-new, template-based matchmaking algorithm. Light tank branches were stretched to Tier X, which marked the introduction of the regular ±2 tier spread for them. Finally, comprehensive tweaks to SPGs reshaped them into efficient team players, making this class less frustrating to fight against and more satisfying to play and have on the team. Let’s give a few specific items some well-deserved attention.

Improved Matchmaker


The improved matchmaker introduces a new template-based algorithm that balances the “ideal” setup against the speed of matching. If assembling two teams according to it will leave you queuing too long, the system loosens its restrictions a bit to make sure you get into a match quicker. This way, you don’t get tired of waiting and always end up with a setup that’s optimal for the current situation on the server. You always face a team that has the same number of vehicles at the top/middle/bottom of the list as yours. Plus, whichever template the matchmaker uses, tanks at the bottom will always be in the majority and the middle is bigger than the top. Simply put, regardless of your position on the list, there are enough players in the same position to turn the tide of battle.

Stretching Light Tank Branches to Tier X


American, Soviet, and French light tanks now reach to Tier X and benefit from standard ±2 matchmaking, which should create more varied, enjoyable, and exciting gameplay. Following the addition of top-tier vehicles, LTs evolved into a standalone battle unit and received a number of balance tweaks. They still play as support units, but now have decent enough firepower and excellent speed to make an impact. The new Tier X light tanks are swifter and more maneuverable than their peers at lower tiers. Their gun stabilization, penetration power and hit damage allow them to excel in close- and mid-range combat. Their guns are just a little less powerful than those of medium tanks, and have enough penetration power to pierce through the side and rear armor of the majority of heavies. They have what it takes to punish opponents who might naively consider them harmless.

All-Round SPG Revision


The new stun mechanic transformed arty into long-range support fire vehicles: efficient team players, who cripple targets and help set the attack direction from afar. Instead of kicking players out from the game in a single shot, they now temporarily weaken mobility, accuracy, and reload time of vehicles in their splash radius. This negative effect can be reduced with Spall Liners or lifted with the now multi-use First Aid Kits. As soon as the stun effect passes you are as good as new and can fight on.

Wargaming also considerably lowered the penetration and damage per shot for HE shells and removed AP, APCR, and HEAT shells for SPGs. Now, they deal less direct damage, but benefit from the damage their teammates cause to stunned targets, similar to scouts. So, shooting at multiple targets is now more efficient than picking just one. This change, together with the introduction of the stun mechanic, should force SPGs to change their play style and aim to hit multiple targets.

Truly, 9.18 is one of the most significant updates ever introduced to the game, both in terms of the importance of the issues it tackles and the sheer scope of fundamental changes it simultaneously introduces.

What is Star Citizen?


From the mind of Chris Roberts, acclaimed creator of Wing Commander and Freelancer, Star Citizen is a 100% crowd funded game aiming to create a living, breathing science fiction universe with unparalleled immersion. More than a space combat sim, more than a first person shooter and more than an MMO: Star Citizen is the First Person Universe that will allow for unlimited gameplay.
