A casual glance at the information available seems to indicate that Armored Warfare has not lit the world on fire. But the development team is most certainly not giving up on the game; instead, they’re making it something much better than it has been through balance. The extensive mechanical retool is being dubbed “Balance 2.0” and has an enormous amount of system information available for everyone so that all can see the problems with the game’s mechanics before and what’s being done to improve the game for everyone.
One of the major goals for the new balance update was to ensure that lower tier vehicles remain a viable threat for higher tier vehicles while still making the higher tiers a tangible improvement over the earlier counterparts. There’s also several vehicles changing their designation and several smaller tweaks to make the game’s core mechanics viable in moment-to-moment gameplay. Really, there’s too much to sum up in a few sentences; if you’re a fan of the game and have the time to read a detailed dissection of how the game is shifting, you should sit down and start reading.
