Also noticed that you now see when your opponents had kicked up the surrender vote process (and if someone voted it down). It's kinda funny when you think you're fighting an uphill battle, expecting they'll come back with hordes of heavy tanks but really they're about ready to quit; nothing motivates you to keep fighting than seeing that message.

Also several maps like Rzhev, both Pripyat, City 17 Winter, and Don River are now completely excluded from automatch because they're the most vetoed. Kind of a shame since I actually enjoyed playing Rzhev.

On rear armor with mark target maybe.
And its PTRS.
PTRD was a different one.

Yep, my bad. This one is PTRS.

another ninja changes:

So this is more of a bug, likely to be fixed. Damn painful for the host to add friends of friends just to have a 3v3 custom game.

It's most likely things they forgot about or didn't think were all that significant. It's not like they have some sinister plan to sneak in stronger fences while we aren't looking.

Rzhev is just tooooooooooooooo Soviet favoured, SU85 are almost uncounterable there, and too many chokes to mine or demo just fucked up.

This is a much welcome change, I love that I don't have to waste all my vetoes on those terrible maps. That being said, I did enjoy playing on Rzhev, and much prefer the summer version to the winter version. It does need some tweaking though, I feel the south side of the map has a distinct advantage.

Team balance, decided to withdraw these maps outside automatch. So this is not a bug, but is a feature:

Don river
Pripyat
Pripyat Winter

Rzhev
City 17 Winter


The tears of joy!
I hated that map since closed beta.

Very fun stealth change:

Flamers now deal massive damage to units garrisoned inside M3 (and probably M5, didn't check it out because I wasn't T3 in the game where my stuff got slaughtered inside an M3). Previously they did nearly now damage, now it seems like they might actually be doing the against building garrison extra damage on top of all the models being guaranteed to being hit because they're so clumped up.

The hull machine gun on the p4, ostwind, elefant, panther, tiger and tiger ace:
Damage increased from 2 to 4


Just tested this, and I can confirm. Average TTK from Tiger front MG 34 was about 16 seconds, now it's roughly half.

I only played a few games, however, it seems they might have tweaked how the StG44 shoots? more in a burst fashion than automatic fire?

Overall dps didn't seem to change, anyone else notice this?


It's a sound bug, is all. The StG 44 only makes a sound for the first shot of a burst, it seems. The rest of the bullets still come out and hit just fine, if you look closely you can see the rifle is still firing without making any noise.
