Protection against the shotgun turret has also been added to several existing paints. In their case, the Hammer protection is an additional one, so their prices, and the ranks at which they become available, have remained the same.
“Storm”: 5% against Hammer added
“Desert”: 10% against Hammer added
“Roger”: 15% against Hammer added
“Jade”: 15% against Hammer added
“Rock”: 10% against Hammer added
In the near future, we will also introduce paints offering protection from both Hammer and Vulcan. They will be added to the game with the release of the machine gun turret.
This same update has also brought a small but handy change to the game’s interface. If you access the lobby while in the middle a battle, you can choose whether to remain in the fight while visiting it, or leave the match altogether.
Finally, some maps have received additional drop zones for gold boxes. A while ago, we made the drop points for gold boxes less predictable on the most popular arenas. Now it’s time to extend this to all the remaining maps.
That’s all for now. Enter the game and check out how the new paints look on your battle machine. And make sure you share your impressions about them in the forum and via the poll!
Today we’ve rolled out numerous changes and additions to the game. Get more information on each of them below.
Adjusted impact force for Railgun and Smoky
With the introduction of the auto-aim feature for enemy turrets, light hulls started flipping over too frequently when hit by Railgun or Smoky. This was especially noticeable in format battles. We analyzed player feedback and decreased the impact force of Railgun and Smoky. Now, flipping over a Wasp or a Hornet is still possible, but it requires some skill!
By popular request, we’ve added an updated version of last year’s New Year map to the game. It is called Aleksandrovsk. It supports all battle modes and is available in both summer and winter themes.
Updated rank limits for higher ranks
We have decreased the rank limits for players of higher ranks. Previously, a Warrant Officer with M1 equipment could easily end up in a battle with Generalissimos on M3 turrets and hulls. This was undesirable for both parties. The former had practically no chance of winning, while latter were unhappy with lower rank tankers being unable to affect the outcome of a battle. Now, irrespective of the rank, players will be facing opponents of the same weight category. You can find the updated rank limits on our wiki.
New opening ranks for maps
Most maps now have different ranks at which they become available. Tanki newbies will have access to those arenas that are easiest to learn. More tactically diverse arenas will unlock as a tanker earns higher ranks. Also, all maps are now unlocked upon reaching the 11th rank, rather than the 14th rank as previously required.
Email notification after every crystal purchase
If you have an email address linked to your game account, you will now be receiving an email notification every time you purchase crystals. This will include the date of payment, the number of crystals bought, the payment system and the payment method.
The Madness map now supports up to 32 players. We’ve also increased the acceleration of Shaft’s scope in sniping mode.
That’s it for this update. You can share your impressions on the changes in the forum and via the poll. See you, tankers!
