Yes, very impressive.
The latest update for World of Tanks is all about making the game prettier. No, it doesn’t add the option to give your tank a nice sparkly paint job with unicorn decals, but it does overhaul the game’s graphical engine completely. Players should notice better lighting, better effects, and all around a better experience compared to the old version. There’s even a video just below showing off all of the engine improvements going on under the hood.

Several maps have also been refurbished and improved, with small details fixed and refined to further improve the layouts of 29 different maps. There’s also a new map, Glacier. And that’s not counting the new soundtrack for the game to make the whole thing feel better for your ears, to boot. If all that isn’t enough, you can take advantage of the game’s new AR app to put some tanks in your day-to-day life, perfect if visions of trundling war machines now haunt your every waking moment.

Did they fix the blatant problem with illegal mods?

I quit roughly 2 years ago, but at the time the game was poisened with illegal “mods” including aimbots and other gamebreaking features (e.g. showing destroyed objects on minimap, making foliage of trees transparent and more).

Wargaming never cared about it or at least us paying players never had problems. I quit after 20k battles when my clan told us we had to use illegal mods if we wanted to continue in clanwars. That was the state of the game 2 years ago: Highlevel clans sealclubbing newbs with unfair mods. gg.

I loved this game for a time but the community is garbage; watching people commit suicide because a mod gave them a low win chance and bitching about their team is just one example I encountered.

Also I got tired of the need for gold rounds for certain tanks like the American tier 8 autoloader, the T69, with its awful pen on non-gold rounds. I loathe to bandy the term pay to win about too much but WoT at least leans that way. They did add the ability to purchase gold rounds with silver but the price was exorbitant.

Still if you’re good at controlling your wallet to avoid spending money too often on these kinds of games and like this style of game the core is good fun. I had several tier 10s myself before leaving just after getting the tier 10 Japanese heavy tank.

I started WoT in early beta-testing, and played quite a lot in spells over the years. The new graphics engine does indeed look fabulous, and runs pretty well.

The only way I’ve been able to come out of a session of a couple of hours without feeling bitter is to ignore everything in chat except tactical information in the match, and use premium ammo only against targets that require it for penetration.

Honestly, it’s a bit too much work to play it casually, and have good chances for success. But at least if you run a premium account, you can afford to buy that ammo for credits. If you recall, for a couple of years, it was only available for gold. So there’s that.

If I just want to pop in for a few rounds, I stick to tiers IV-VIII, and leave those X’s parked. It’s not worth the misery (a word that should never be associated with an activity done for FUN).

Well, some already have tanks with a pink Angelfish on them and Japanese girls voicing the tank.
