Update 1.7.1 for World of Tanks has been previewed by the team, as the festive season has come and passed.
Perhaps most importantly, double-barreled vehicles are headed for a supertest. Just what is a supertest? According to the team,
“Supertest is the process of testing a project in the early stages of implementation, if necessary. The test involves checking the concept of a new feature or version and searching for the most critical issues. In World of Tanks, Supertests are divided into production tests of individual features, performed during feature development (such as testing a new map, or balancing a new vehicle), and version tests of full releases.”
The purpose of these tests is to test this new content with live but limited players before sending it out to the greater playerbase. The vehicles include The IS-2-II (Tier VIII), The Soviet IS-3-II (Tier IX), and The Soviet ST-II (Tier X).
All three tanks have five crew member slots including:
- Commander (Radio Operator)
- Two (2) Loaders
