Now, let’s go back to the update deployed on the 13th of June and see exactly what it brings for the World of Tanks players.

Soviet Tier X Additions

At the beginning of 2018, the main point of discussion among World of Tanks players was the need for a revision on the Soviet Tech Tree. Since Object 430 tank was moved to Tier 9 and the 430U took its place in Tier 10 position, the introduction of Object 257 left two slots empty in Tier 10. Well, for all the fans that were waiting for this moment, this update brings two new Tier 10 tanks in the spotlight.

The MT Line K91

Developed on the structure of Object 430 Variant II, the MT Line K91 is quite small which means extraordinary accuracy and movement as well as a very high shell velocity, among other great features. The downside comes in the armor department, as always with small and fast-moving tanks, as well as a weak alpha damage.

The HT Mini-Line Object 277

Seen as a follower of the might T-10, the Object 277 tank comes with a very aggressive approach, awesome armor and a higher Damage Per Minute, penetration and alpha damage. It also has weak spots, such as the Commander’s hatch as well as the lower armor plate that are not as strong as other Tier X Soviet tanks.

Updated Maps

Since the people at Wargaming are always checking feedback from players in order to deliver the best possible gaming product, several complaints from players regarding some maps that, put simply, weren’t fun. This update revisited those maps in order to increase the level of engagement and make them more interactive and fun for the World of Tanks players.

In this map revisiting pack, battle scenes such as Erlenberg, Fjords, Mountain Pass or Malinkova were tweaked in order to increase the action and make them a lot more enjoyable. The exact changes weren’t specified so you can board your best tank and give them a shot to see if the changes applied by Wargaming are really effective.

A Better Onboarding Experience for New Players

Something that all new players felt was necessary for quite some time now was a better onboarding experience. Well, the 1.0.2 update delivers exactly what was asked for. It Comes wth Advanced Training that follows the already exiting Boot Camp experience. It’s a whole set of new missions that will explain a lot of vital moves, tactics and maneuvers that will help you through the game.

With the same thing in mind, you will be able to experience a lot of in-game guides that should deliver a smoother experience for all players, experienced or not. These will help with the more in-detail things related to World of Tanks such as spotting, penetration, battle maneuvers and much more.
