These new prototypes were the start of the usage of the Schachtellaufwerk wheel arrangements, but these also never passed prototype stages and were both cancelled in During the development of the prototypes above, the German invasion of France showed that the Allied tanks such as the Somua, Char B1, and Matilda II were impervious to their current anti-tank weaponry and a need for better armoured and armed tanks were emphasized. So on May 26, , Henschel and Porsche were asked to submit designs for a 45 ton heavy tank that was to be ready for demonstration by June During their development in June , Germany initiated Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union and was shocked by appearance of the T and KV-1 tanks that were invulnerable to all but the most potent anti-tank weapon in German inventory, one of which was the 88 mm FlaK cannon. The potency of the 88 mm cannon against the heavily armoured tanks that the Germans faced had Hitler ordered that the heavy tank design undertaken by Henschel and Porsche to utilize the 88 mm as its main armament instead of a 75 mm cannon. The designs of the tank was finalized and ready for demonstration on April 20, , Hitler’s birthday, and showed the VK The demonstration and subsequent evaluations on the two designs determined that the Henschel variant was superior to the Porsche variant, proving more reliable, more mobile, and more easily produced than the Porsche. This caused the Henschel variant to be adopted as the Panzerkampfwagen VI Tiger and production started in August The Porsche variant had many chassis produced as Ferdinand Porsche thought the design would win, so the chassis were instead used in the Ferdinand tank destroyer.
World of Tanks || Churchill III Review
World of Tanks 1. Dads and gentlemen in the Dad age group have limited free time, and Dads don’t have the lightning fast reflexes they had in their younger days. Their tastes have matured; they have learned to appreciate fine whiskeys and cigars, and glossy documentaries about the death machines of World War II. World of Tanks has been crafted to meet the needs of the Dad Gamer. Slow and measured, the arcade action has a veneer of historical authenticity. Most important of all, it does not require huge time commitments — each battle lasts 15 minutes at most.
The matchmaker takes tanks from queue, which can participate in tier 8 battles (see column number 8 in the table) and puts them in 2 teams. In our battle we can face Tiger II and for example M6 (both can participate in tier 8 battles).
Whether vehicles are stock or fully researched, how they are equipped, nor crew skill is taken into account by the match-maker. Vehicle Tier Vehicle tier is not taken into consideration when balancing teams. This is a common misconception among players. For example, under the current rules a tier 8 medium can be matched against a tier 7 heavy tank. The only relevance of vehicle tier is to determine the battle tier.
However, the top tanks of each team have the same vehicle tier due to the current balancing rules. The vehicle tier should be taken into consideration as it reflects a preordained operating range of a vehicle also known as classification. The range of each tier gradually increases with technology and tiers can overlap. If you are in a platoon, the entire platoon is placed into battles according to the platoon member in the vehicle with the highest battle tier.
This can produce unwanted results in particular for new players at the lower tiers. For example, a tier 4 scout can enter battles up to tier 7, whereas a tier 4 medium tank on its own can only join battles up to tier 6. If these platoon together, the scout will pull the other tank up into its battle tier, where the other tank will usually be hopelessly outclassed. The same thing happens when a tank with preferential match making is platooning with a normal tank.
Please take this into account when forming platoons.

It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.
Here’s an excerpt from our Word of the Year announcement in The national debate can arguably be summarized by the question: In the past two years, has there been enough change? Has there been too much? Meanwhile, many Americans continue to face change in their homes, bank accounts and jobs. Only time will tell if the latest wave of change Americans voted for in the midterm elections will result in a negative or positive outcome.
Tergiversate This rare word was chosen to represent because it described so much of the world around us.

Tanks that have the same base model, such as the WZ and the WZ Alpine Tiger, will get the same improvements. As a side note, regular Tier VIII vehicles face a similar issue with matchmaking, amplified by the fact that they also compete against Tier X tanks.
The Tiger II has passable armor for a tier 8 heavy tank since almost the bulk of its armor is concentrated on the upper glacis and turret front. Other areas suffer from the armor being concentrated in two main locations as the other areas are relatively weak for a tier 8 heavy tank, especially on the sides and rear. Fortunately for the Tiger II it has decent gun depression allowing it to hide its lower glacis and making it difficult for many tier 8 and under tanks that it faces to penetrate it reliably.
This guide for World of Tanks Tiger II weak spots breaks down the Tiger II into many armor zones with different thicknesses and angles associated with them. The index at the bottom of each picture describes a few abbreviations used and also the format in which the armor details are described in. Effective Armor EA refers to the overall effectiveness of the armor without normalization. The main weak spots are the lower glacis and also the center of the commander cupola.
You simply need to avoid the few turret strong points and also shooting the track areas with no hull armor behind them.

Vehicles with preferential status are likely to get matched into dual or single-tier battles, where their status combined with combat parameters does more harm than good. All-around vehicle rebalances on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis to improve their statistics combined with matchmaker rule revision. The underlying problem for these vehicles is too many battles versus Tier X.
Thus we go find the row for Vehicle Tier 2, Light Tank, and see to the right that this vehicle can fight in battle tiers 1, 2 and 3. The I, on the other hand, benefits from unique matchmaking, as it will never encounter tier 3 tanks.
The player has control over the vehicle’s movement, firing, and can communicate with allied players through typed or voice chat. A simple random match is won either by destroying all vehicles on the opposing team or capturing the opposing team’s base. There are other game modes that change the rules of the battle, but gameplay mechanics remain the same. World of Tanks contains multiple game mechanics such as camouflage, shell ricochets, and module damage. Game modes The players in World of Tanks can choose six primary types of battles: Within random battles, players can also participate in platoons, groups of two to three players who are put into the same team.
There are also missions to be completed in the game modes for varying amounts of rewards. Vehicle types The vehicles are modeled to closely resemble their counterparts in real life,   however certain parameters have been simplified or modified to fit game mechanics, and better gameplay. Each nation has at least one line of vehicles starting at tier I to tier X, players progress by playing games in vehicles in that line.

A History: ’s Word of the Year
I got involved with this too and I must say I was very surprised. You do not need major reflexes as tactics are a key strategy. Everyone starts off with a light tank but you can choose the upgrade paths for SPGs, Destroyers, etc and start earning your experience points to get upgrades. I like the authenticity of it all where if you trying move several tons of metal up a hill you slow down, a damaged track slows you down and affects turning angles etc.
We started with making characteristic and statistical changes to the 10 preferential matchmaking vehicles we currently have in-game to make them more competitive in same and +1 Tier battles, without making them perform better than non-preferential vehicles, as they will see +2 Tier battles.
We think it will worsen the diversity of battles. One of early WoT PC versions tried to consider modules, but this system malfunctioned and was unpredictable. As far as the matchmaker is concerned, we have to use what we have. We are waiting for improvements from WoT PC team. After they die, it is unfair! Impossible to penetrate him, he is as fast as you
