World of Tanks: v7.5 Goes Live in the EU

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe CitadelPosts: 20,752MMORPG.COM Staff Epic

Wargaming.net has announced that the World of Tanks v7.5 patch is now live on EU servers and will go live in North America on August 2nd. Update 7.5 features new Tier 10 medium tanks and tank destroyers, premium vehicles, battling arenas, as well as new medals and titles.

The American tech tree has been updated with the E3 and E4 modifications of the T110 destroyer, as well as the M48A1 Patton III medium tank. The Germany Tank Destroyer lines have also been strengthened with the mighty JadgPz E-100 and the E-50 Ausf M, which now occupies the spot as the nation's most powerful medium tank. The heavy destroyer Object 268 and the medium T62A joined the ranks of the Soviet tech tree, while the French have received the Tier 10 Bat Chatillon 25t medium tank and the AMX 50 Foch 155 tank destroyer.

    To be fair they both were pieces of crap compared to their tier9 counterparts, and the American T10 heavy tank has been owning them in 1v1 fights.

     

    The German, Russian, and American tier10 TD's are all terribad, but the French's Tier10 is flipping crazy.

     

    Still no nerfs for Artillery (lobbing 3000dmg shells across the map at 80 degree angles over mountains) makes the game continue to be off my list. It's called World of Tanks, and not World of Exploiting Laser Artillery.

    Oh, i also forgot to ask why World of Tanks is on here? It's NOT an MMO simply because it has "Online" in the title. It's a LOBBY based Tank Game. NOT an MMO?

    People think massively means something like world size when it means number of server connections.  Back when 500 connections to a game server was a break through in mmorpg technology.  Anyone who doesn't understand that should just shutup on the topic!

    On thing of note that happened in this patch was that they finaly got the matchmaker right. Normal (non-scout/arty) are now matched at max +2 tiers.

    this was a fun game indeed... sadly they dropped the ball maybe not to hard but i should say they're letting the ball slip? lol

    Another FAKE FREE TO PLAY,  unable to play for free after tier 7-8 tanks, ammo price is too huge even if you win you cant use best tier  weapon to shoot , also very bad ballance , german tanks =hardcore mode,american tanks =medium mode, soviet tanks =very easy mode,any heavy tanks is overpowered, any tank destroyer is useless in any battle, no one playing them for real in any tournaments, so dont wast your time on this unit, should be deleted from game!

    If you run up the german line be prepared to be very challenged in your frustration tolerance when you get the Tiger. If the WoT version of this tank had been used in the war, Germany would have lost a year earlier.
