FTR News

1.9.2014
If you missed it, check out Listy’s article on the Conqueror turret and – if you are interested how it could be implemented into the game – my followup. Otherwise, not much today, but the test should start this Thursday. - Leopard PTA is doing fine statistically apparently With that being said, please note that currently, FTR is in “limited mode” because of some unforseen issues. At this moment, everything is in the state flux, so I can’t promise anything, I’ll see in a couple of days, ideally tomorrow. Don’t know how exactly will it be from now on, I will try to keep at least the translations daily, but it might not be possible, so no promises. Thanks everyone for their words of support (and for your financial aid as well), it is appreciated and helpful, but I need to sort this stuff out before I can start giving time to FTR again. I’m sorry, it’s the best I can do for now.

FTR Limited Mode
Please note Hello everyone, today… well, just now, I discovered a huge problem in my life that I have to fix and it will require quite some money and time. Dont ask, it’s personal. I just wanted you to know the impact it will have on FTR: From now on, I will be posting only the translations in the evenings until I fix it. They will come later, 9-10PM CEST or so. Furthermore, the chance I will reply on any mail is very low from now on, I recieve too many and takes too much time. If you want to drop your Patreon support as a result, Ill understand. I hope to fix it as soon as I can to return to “normal” mode of FTR, but tbh I am not optimistic about that. Will do the best I can for you. Sorry for this.

New Premium Tank Bonus Incoming?
Hello everyone, an interesting thing appeared in the supertest client. Yesterday, the site gamemodels3d got it from somewhere and posted a list of changes, that happened between 9.2 and 9.3 supertest. One of the changes that caught my eye was the following: Коэффициент опыта экипажа 1.5 ( 1.0 ) What it means in English is that all the premium tanks (and reward tanks that act like premiums, such as VK7201) recieved a 50 percent bonus to crew XP gain. Whether it’s just a supertest thing or a seriously considered change, that I do not know (given the fact that something as big would be announced, I doubt we’ll see that in 9.3), but it’s certainly not a bad idea.

Buff my Conqueror!
Hello everyone, today, we are going to be talking about the Conqueror. Listy made an interesting historical article about what he found in the archives and it’s quite interesting. With it, the British line could be changed somewhat. There are two potentially useful things he found. First is the 14mm “Burster” applique armor plate, added to the hull of the vehicle to detonate HESH and HEAT shells. Pretty useful little thing, but nothing that was unknown before (there is even a report on that online) and quite frankly, in the game, the Conqueror is more like a sniper, it doesn’t need to be covered with troll spaced armor. Second is much more interesting. A lot of people are sort of… not happy with the fact that stock Conqueror in the game uses a Centurion turret. Listy found an alternative: a “paper” turret, proposed for the Conqueror. The armor of this turret is (in milimeters) 342/177,8/? (presumably 70), with an improved commader’s cupola armor. This could of course be a serious upgrade to the Conqueror, allowing the “elite” turret to be moved to “stock” position. Of course, tradeoffs would have to be made for this insane frontal thickness. These tradeoffs could include: - reduction of upper front plate from 130mm to 125mm (per another document, found by Listy) - reduction of the rear current elite turret armor from 70mm to 63.5 (source is the same document) - possible reduction of gun depression from -7 to -5,5 (the peculiar fire control system did not allow the gunner to fire the gun below 5,5 degrees of depression) - other soft stats nerfs Obviously, additional research would be required, but it could be an interesting change to the Conqueror.

AMX-40 is OP :)
Thanks to Hector M. for sending me this nice little video :) From RU server (but the Russian text is largely irrelevant) – a “test” of the dreaded AMX-40. It starts slow, but you’ll see that it’s totally OP and deserves a nerf! :)

Saumur Pictures (Part 2)
Hello everyone, this time, a bunch of pictures from outside of the Saumur compound. I am not sure, but I think some parts are not accessible normally (like the place where the parts of tanks are). In any case, here are the pictures. I am sorry, but I have no idea what’s on half of them, so if you help with identification, that would be great :) Sherman with 75mm gun (Free French units – M4A2?) Roland SAM launcher I think (AMX-30 suspension) French WW1 gun, Schneider 152mm howitzer I think Notice the 75mm KwK and mantlet (Panzer IV) amongst the discarded barrels T-55 T-72 of some sort Some sort of Stuart tractor? Panther. This one drives.

31.8.2014
Not much today. - Storm confirms that the new 9.3 light tanks will come straight away as HD (some Russian player was claiming the tanks are in SD in videos) - according to SerB, WT E-100 is not the worst thing invented by Germans, they had even weirder tanks (SS: of course it isn’t, since Germans didn’t invent it, WG did) But if all goes well, you can look forward to some very interesting insider info tomorrow – after all, who wouldn’t want to see SerB raging? ;)
