Since its initial release, developer Wargaming.net has expanded on the gameís formula based on player feedback - new vehicles, stat balancing, big fixes, that sort of thing. With the upcoming release of version 8.3, however, players are going to be treated to a taste of the Orient.
The rejigged tech tree consists entirely of light, medium and heavy tanks - there are no tank destroyers or artilleries here - with not an awful lot of emphasis on the latter. The first four tiers are dominated by light tanks, with the heavies appearing as late as tier seven (and are quite rare to boot). The Chinese selection is one that is focused on lightweight, nimble and strategic play.
Wargaming has tried to stick to authenticity when introducing these new models. Chinese tanks have traditionally amounted to heavily re-fitted or re-engineered foreign models bought from other countries - this is reflected in both the performance and variety of vehicles on offer. Even the highest tier tanks, although relatively powerful, are quicker on their treads than their equivalents from other factions.
However, up against even other Chinese tanks, itís a good idea to always stay mobile. Thatís because what these guys have in speed, they lack in serious firepower. A good Medium and Heavy tank can still stand its ground if tooled up, just not for as long as you may like. The trick is to move around corners of the environment, take a shot and quickly scuttle back to cover before a counterattack can be issued.
Thatís if you decide to go solo, however. One obvious benefit comes from working with your teammates to flank your foes and deliver multiple blows. There are no hero vehicles in the Chinese set - perhaps more than with any other faction, teamwork is especially important to survival, never mind victory.
that's tomorrow, according to Wargaming), you can expect the Chinese line of vehicles to be one that will be best for teams that like to deploy quick, clean and effective battle tactics. For beginners new to the game, they offer a set of great all-rounders too.
