Pretty much, the chance of your shots going to the very outside of the aiming circle like they seem to do at the worst possible moment will be highly reduced. If you don't take time to aim, you still will probably miss, but there will be far less times where you line up the perfect shot, and somehow the game decides you should miss for no reason.

Arty accuracy is getting "nerfed" although it will actually be close to what it is now... Basically their aim time and accuracy is getting reduced to compensate for the increased accuracy of all guns.

Also, the battle results screen is getting a facelift: instead of showing "critical damage," you can actually see what module or crew member you hit.
Additionally, if you track someone, all the damage that is done while they are tracked will count for xp like spotting damage does for scouts.

As for sounds, the sounds of guns, as well as tanks getting hit will be changed (for the better, imo.) The messages from the crew are also more specific.

If any of you want to try the test server, you can download it here: 8.6 Public Test | News | World of Tanks

That's what annoys me most about the game now, I'm a hell of a shot. Screw the "luck" factor.

oh, and as a side note, they're doing away with "vehicle vibration during sniper mode" and instead I think it will be called "vehicle effects" or something like that, but basically the screen "moves" with the tank...
In other words, if you were travelling 40km/hr and suddenly jerk to a halt, the screen will jerk a bit with the tank. It doesn't really affect your aiming, it mostly just looks cool.

And you can turn the effect off if it really bothers you.

Ok, I think I'm getting them all back up there... I think I have almost all of the tier 4's researched... Managed to get everything up to tier 5 artillery researched still waiting on some silver for the French purchase.

Most people don't know that skittish is the proper spelling for "jittery". Don't believe me... Look it up.

Havent played in a while, but I could get 4-5 kills with the AMX-40. If I could get to the front lines before the battle was over.

oh, one more note about 8.6 for anyone not on the test server:

tier 8 artillery are getting moved to tier 10 (no, you don't get higher shell damage or more hitpoints) and all the other artillery are getting rearranged. Each country will get a couple new arty to fill the blank tiers.
Oh, and the M37 and M7 Priest are switching places on the tech tree, since the M7 was historically developed first anyway, and they both have the same howitzer iirc.

Additionally, artillery shells that are fired from short-barreled, mortar-type howitzers will spend more time in the air (as they should, due to their lower velocity.) This means that some arty players will need to re-learn how to lead targets, etc...

Why is it that every single bloody game I've played today ends up like this:



And just so you don't think I wasn't trying, the team results:



Earlier, I played the ELC in a tier 8 game, and did more damage than 2/3 of the team....

Nice. I am trying true sniper style and only doing damage to about 2-3 tanks if that.
