from the tanksgiving desk
Wargaming.net is celebrating Tanksgiving in World of Tanks, November 24th through 28th. During this time, some tanks will earn double credits during battles (M4A3E2, M4A3E8, StuG III, JagdPz IV, SU-5, SU-8). Plenty of other surprises await, but in order to witness them you’ll probably have to jump in-world.
All of this is in celebration, of course, of the American tradition of Thanksgiving, as well as the much-anticipated 7.0 patch update. The patch is bringing a host of fixes and augmentations to the game, including some new BigWorld features…
Improved game performance on some PC configurations
Added more settings for special effects
Improved game settings behavior when using Logitech keyboards and Alienware notebooks.
Added the new Antialising type – FXAA
Improved the quality of in-game voice chat
Added the ‘vignette’ effect
Added the camouflage system for all tanks.
Added 1 tank horn for testing purposes (depending on feedback, this feature will be either developed or removed completely).
Added the ‘Complaints’ function.
Added 2 new maps: ‘Swamps’ and ‘Fjords’
Added new ‘special’ vehicles: Su-85 I and Pz IV Hydraulic
On some maps animated birds were added
