World of Tanks’ 9.8 update is live

    
15
World of Tanks updated to version 9.8 this week. New features include the domination game mode and dynamic platoons that allow you to group with friends in the middle of a battle. Wargaming has also added the option to pick either the standard or high definition client, the former of which caters to users with low-end PC graphics capabilities and slower internet connections.

Domination is basically a new version of capture-the-flag tuned for “anyone who likes playing World of Tanks a little more recklessly.”

Kodimus lol, My jgpze100 (as just one of many of my tanks as examples) can’t pen many, many, many areas on  many t10 tanks with reg rounds. I pick up gold rounds and there is no aiming necessary, i can melt all but a very few spots on t10’s. So, yes, gold rounds are pay to win, snapshot rounds. All gold rounds allow those in appropriate tiers to simply snapshot without care and win. if any of you want to try me in-game using your reg rounds and i’ll use gold, let me know, i’ll record it and show everyone how useless your reg rounds are to my gold.

No it’s not. If you think it’s pay to win then you’re really, really bad at the game.

scfs123 Damonvile Kodimus How can something be p2w when you can buy it with in game money ? 
That was changed 2 YEARS ago…people really need to stop crying about games they haven’t played in years.

Damonvile Kodimus Well no, it is a pay to win model.
Thankfully most people don’t care enough to actually PAY to win in anything except the top of the top content…..but the $$ ammo is definetly a massive difference in damage.

I’ve only ran into a few folks using it myself, it normally gets quite a bit of trolling in chat over it lol “OH WHAT YOU NOT GOOD ENUF TO USE REAL AMMO? “

Indeed. Quite a few things you can complain about, and rightly so in a lot of cases, but money providing an advantage isn’t one of them. Just a shame the game has that perception because of people like the ones in this thread.

Kodimus P2W in this game is just an excuse people use because they lost. No one that actually understands the mechanics and tactics cries about that….they bitch about plenty of other things but not that :)

I rarely use premium shells (usually only when I’m in my tier 8 and get matched with 10s) and have no problem maintaining a 54% win rate. You might need to look into the mechanics a little more if APCR is making you feel outmatched, because it’s not used often.

I have been playing since closed beta and only had a premium accout for @6 months. I RARELY use APCR or HEAT rounds and have found this to be issue only uttered by people unable to play with any skill.

Armsbend Kodimus I don’t really agree with that Armsbend.  I play, been playing for about a year, and rarely to I find that I’m shot with gold.
