[Official] Armored Warfare Open Beta Discussion thread

As of tomorrow Wednesday May 27th the early access testing will be live. Here's a place for anyone with access to talk about it and all that good stuff. I'll update the thread title as the game progresses and I'll fancy up this OP soon.

I did notice that I'm currently able to download the game biggrin.gif


As of today (Oct 8, 2015) the game has entered the last beta stage and is completely free to play for everyone. Also there will be no more stat resets.

Any news about how access will be after this first week? I'm interested in the game but I don't want to buy access yet for just one week. Also want to first watch some streamers play it just to be sure that it's actually better than WoT.

Circon will be playing during the EU uptime today.

I played a little on the EU server just now, performance of the game seems absolutely abysmal. Even on the lowest settings I can only manage 20-25fps with a 1402mhz GTX 970 and overclocked 5820k.
post #9 of 150
Circon said he had 55+ fps on high.

Interview with community manager from AW (Freitag on AW forums) on circon's stream.

Not literally paraphrased:

*After this week of testing, how soon will we play the game again?"
They hope to get the servers running 24/7 asap, shouldn't be within a month if no serious problems show up.

*What will be highest tier?"
Up to T10, T14 armata would be a T10 tank.

*Will progression will stay split up between the servers?" (there is roaming in the gaming)
For now progression between EU and NA is split up. Might change in future.

*Matchmaking?
+1/-1. (WoT is +2/-2). Tier 4 can meet tier 5 but no tier 6 except when there is a low number of players in the queue.
Skill based MM.

*Visible MMR?
Only privately visible MMR.

*Difference in EXP/credits rewards for higher MMR players?
Doesn't know. (doesn't seem like it)

*Mods?
We want to avoid until we know they are save. They don't want XVM. For now mods wont be a thing.

*Viewrange/spotting system?
Mostly like WoT.

*Will ramming damage be reduced?
It used to be worse but it probably still needs some tweaking.

*Will the headlights have gameplay effect, will there be night maps?
Yes there will be nightmaps, not in MM yet. Not sure, but he thinks headlights have no effect.

*Other gamemodes beside capture base?
PvE: Co-op with 5. 3-stage mission. Each stage is a different map. He didn't said anything about how it will actually be like. You also get EXP and credits from PvE. Nothing decided about the rate compaired to PvP.
Can choose any tank you want in PvE.

*Are the early access packages exclusive?
Some will be timed exclusives for at least a year. Terminator, expeditionary tank will probably look different if it then ever goes on sale again.

*Artillery hardcap?
Probably 2/team. Waiting for feedback from test.

*How longwill early access be available?
Until OB. (So no specific date)

*Buyable cosmetics to put on tanks?
Decals/skins. Maybe also a slider to change the color warmness of the tank. Clan icons.

*There are two dealers, how much dealers you think will be in OB?
(Dealers replace WoT nations in AW, tech tree with tanks from multiple nations).
There will come more dealers but it's not decided yet how many. Dealers allow tanks from much more nations like also African nations.

*XBOX or PS4 version planned?
PC is only platform so far, maybe once PC version is working the way they want it they'll consider it.

*Any special weapon systems?
ATGMs are in the game. Stop to fire and guide them with mouse cursor.
Swingfire, sort of a missile spray.

*EXP/Credits rate?
Still being tweaked.

*What can you buy with gold?
No premium ammo. Can buy premium time (+50% EXP/credits) and premium tanks (more credit gain like WoT).
*Can be used with any crew?
Crew can be used in any vehicle but have specialization. (I assume the penalty for using a commander in an other class is much less than it is in WoT.) Doesn't seem to be different in how crew is handled between premium/normal vehicles.
Is still being tweaked.

*Garage slots?
Right now you have unlimited slots. Might change in the future but probably not.

*How grindy will it be?
Still tweaking.

*System requirements?
More demanding on low than WoT on low but will scale better. (Pretty obvious since it's CryEngine) Most of the optimizing so far has been done with NVIDIA. AMD will be for later.

*Will low setting give an advantage (lower bushes etc)?
We'll try to not make it an issue. (Personally with the WoT spotting system don't think it can be a problem like it is in WT)

*Render range of spotted enemy tanks?
No idea.
*Range of shells?
No idea.

Realism vs fun to play. Shell speeds/damage etc are not 100% realistic. Seems like game balance > historical accuracy.

*Proxy spotting in the game?
Yes.

*Ban system to deal with friendly fire?
Planetside 2 has a good system. >describes system< We'll probably have a system like that.

*In WT you can see the inside of your tank "X-ray vision". Will that be in AW?
Not in the game, but we definitely like to add that to the game.

Switched a bit between 1st and 3rd person while writing down, hope it's not too confusing tongue.gif.
He'll upload it on youtube + some games.

After night 2 of testing I've progressed to the M60 Patton on the one dealer and this is the best result I've gotten so far. I'm loving this game biggrin.gif
