Let me know your thoughts :^)
Two things: 1 I find the spotting is WAY better, I don’t get as frustrated when is down to the wire at the end of a game in my IS4 and I have mediums on very low health trying to flank me. I can actually shoot them as they try to dart to cover rather than just see them pip on my map then vanish again. While my shot may not be fully aimed it at least gives me a chance. 2. I think the Paris map is extremely unbalanced, could have been my teams skill. I have played 6 games so far on that map, all 5 times I started from the east spawn we won and the one time we were on the west spawn we lost….I will have to play it more but something seems real fishy about that.
Just using XVM, as always… a little disaponted that the swedish tank is a 3 crew tank. Crewtraining is now awkvard for the rest of the lines…
i cannot get a strike for trolling/showing who the mentally thin skin people are. Now that that fun is gone, wot is pointless.
The damage indicators are cool and all but the major problems in the game (Gold ammo, artillery, medium tank superiority) haven’t been addressed. I quit WOT last year and this update does nothing for me. I’ll only ever come back to this game if the core issues are fixed.
the damage panels are pretty annoying, I just wanted the damage taken counter back :(
I’m obviously not a fan of the bush spotting bug, but other than that my only major issue is the lack of public chat. the game feels a lot duller when you can’t talk to *everyone* in the match, feels less like a game with a community. I get the whole toxicity and revealing player positions thing, but I don’t think that happens often enough for it to be a issue with me. I think instead you should be able to turn off public chat if you’re not a fan of the toxicity, but still have it available.
Paris summed up in two words…. Cluster fuck…. Haha everywhere you go there is someone flanking or you are flanking, played the map about 10 times, I think it’s pretty solid and a welcome edition to the game
Ugh,Thats pretty good
I’ve been running vanilla for the last 3 patches. XVM is too depressing when you see how many reds are on your team.
still using warpack
using xvm fog removal and sesion statistics. Now dont seeing that spoting bullshit what used to be. had paris map twice. it was fun. looks like main battle is going to be in city on the bridge and below it.
Im still using the Battleassist-Arty-Mod
I am not using any mods don’t need stats or anything … Paris … I played twice on this map and I don’t like it so far Don’t like the indications on the shells trajectory, it is good to know where you’ve been shot from, but it is too much on the screen when lets say 3 ppl shoot at you so that one is turned off Noticed that some of the sounds are changed and do not like them very much otherwise it is ok I think they are on the right direction
critical mods: auto return crew, auto return equipment. damage received log with simple direction indicator better than .16. too much info on your face as you mention. easier auto aim (no calculated lead). should be standard, too hard to auto aim driving fast light over rough terrain. wot should also add crew experience received after battle. this will highlight advantages of premium tanks and reserves, helping WG sell more stuff.
Paris is an awesome map, I’ve only played the bottom part of it in IS-7, but gave very unique feeling having enemy tanks sitting right above you while you hold the bottom of the bridge.
No mods here, I really like the new hit detection system and battle log, its not as cluttered as I thought it would be. Ive been tempted to install XVM but I feel it gives more negatives than positives. I hate loading into a game and hearing people whine based purely off a number displayed in a mod. “26% chance, why even play”….you’ve lost before the game begins with that attitude.
I think the best change is the dmg panel – since this I it is so much easier to get marks of excellence without mods – I stopped using them since 9.14
I really like this new patch and being mod free these past few patches and now this update, it gives even more reason not to use Mods.
The Paris map is completely all over the place and tanks meta has not yet set in but its a good map.
Shit patch, I can’t meme in All Chat, no reason to play anymore Kappa
I got the Paris map once, I was expecting to lose 3-15, but we won 15-3, so I was half right, the map is like Ensk or Himmelsdorf, 3 minutes battles with 3-15 scores.
Anyways, I love how WG is implementing the mods, I hope xvm will soon be forbidden. (that, or they remove the mutherfuucking arties)
I use to heavily mod, now I’m currently using no mods but will probably get my usual jimbos recticle… maybe… the paris map I found kinda fun, all the brawling was in the south while a few mediums/lights scattered north. the spotting rendering I feel is extremely good. I can now peak ridges and know where to aim instead of peaking a ridge, and clicking just hoping that when he renders in he has less hp from my shot I enjoy the fact I can see my damage and blocked now, especially assistance damage. I feel like the display is far better than the previous ribbons they had. However since they damage reciever is detailed to show who hit you, it would be nice to have a damage panel showing which type of shells hit you for how much. even if it didn’t say by which tank, I feel like it would be a nice feature. the carousel is a nice feature too. Most mods I previously found adds on another row which sucked since my screen is only 1366×768 which means it took to much of my screen and made it messy. With the carousel feature they implemented splits one row in half making two rows and not adding on any length.
I’m not a fan of wargamings patches but honestly, I can say I really enjoy this patch.
WOT’s biggest weakness i it’s socially very sterile for a co-op pub game. So taking out global chat, from a game that is multiplayer yet anti societal, was stupid. why not just let people opt out of it.Why not allow people to get rep from other players, and show their rep? Like only positive options but then you’ve got a reason to be nice to ppl, and remember who u were impressed by in the past. all good ideas missed in favour of ripping what little human interaction existed.
Only mod I think the game needs now is an all chat mod :3
I dont get why they changed the Sounds.. the 100 or 105mms sound like the E5 Gun Pre Patch.. Just why.
session stats and arty assist
Paris is very nice (especially for Heavy Tanks). The damage taken shit is pretty annoying. I’m using a reticle mod (that’s about it). I feel that the E5 has been nerfed massively; mantle is easy to pen for some reason. The sounds are nice though.
As far as mods go, I feel they are no longer needed since the vanilla client gives me all the information I want. The only mod I would consider running would be session statistics, but at this point I don’t really care about knowing exactly how well I am playing. I find that the game is much more enjoyable and less stressful when I do not worry about being a performance rating number. On top of that I just play better when I’m relaxed and not frustrated.
SEA server…. still hasnt got 9.16??
Going to try not using mods this update and go full vanilla.
I don’t need mods now it’s great
Did Anfield stop updating his modpack? And if so, I’m just curious as to why he did that, his modpack was the only modpack that had the blue aiming reticle that I liked. Anyway, just curious.
Paris is really campy with tds and mediums
In regards to the damage panel I think it really makes a difference being able to see exactly who you are getting spotting damage on and who is hitting them for it; because its easy to work out as you now get the exact value. Blind firing a tank that is unspotted shooting me is also way way easier than last patch. These are the 2 things I’ve noticed the most
Hey Anfield for the first time I have stopped using any mod packs because I was mainly using them for the damage panel but now that gone I see why you would like to remove xvm from them game as now I am winning and extra 10-15% of my games because that constant “oh look he a unicorn must play safe or target him” style is gone now..I just wish wg would completely remove xvm.
Wow crazy amount of feedback thanks guys 😀 It seems overall most of you view the patch in a positive way
Will let you know whenever we get it. It is Tue 11 Oct here and still no sign of Patch 9.16 on the SEA server. There must be a knot in the cable
i dont really like 9.16, i dont notice any enhancements to the spotting, the interface features are OK but do not show enough informatiion like shell type you got hit with, also the biggest complaint is removal of cross team chat, its like they removed a feature trying to improve the game without actually doing anything on their end to fix the problem, its pure lazyness. and because of this now there is less team chat, its like im playing with a bunch of shitty bots.
Haven’t really noticed the spotting, but I was prepared for it. I was already cataloging the places where you can expect to be spotted now.
I came into the new patch fully prepared to ditch all mods and then I noticed the Automatically Return Equipment and Crew functions were part of XVM. So in no time at all XVM was back. I’ve disabled win percentage for years now, and I expect I won’t extend the XVM period.
I despise cs_paris, I think it looks like a bad counter-strike map. I rate maps more for atmosphere then for being in any way fair and balanced, so I am pathologically incapable of seeing anything wrong with Stalingrad, Pilsen and Overlord, and I despise anything that looks like a competition map. I do know the street plan actually matches the real thing, but it has no atmosphere whatsoever.
Patch is crap, 9.16 was supposed to be a rebalance of the broken crap ass arty mechanic. Until they do something with the shitter powered cowardmobiles there is no sense coming back to the game, maybe next year.
I like 9.16 and agree with the need to tone down the info presentation or at least give us some sort of ‘transparency’ setting. I still use Jimbo’s Contour icons as they’re clean, simple and make it much easier to assess the relative team strengths. Also still using alternate crosshairs.
Love your work, cheers for all the ‘assist damage’.

I do feel like spotting is a bit more responsive, and overall most of the features are a good add. As for Paris, most tanks like to bunch up field side and entrench, while a few smart players work the angles and elevations at the bottom of city and push. Good map to flank
9.16 = -50 fps
still using xvm,aim assist (cause auto aim is broken and doesnt lock on unless u click 50times on the tank), probably gona reinstall carousel since the one wg put in is way too small. WG didnt dissapoint, new patch came out and of course something that was working gets broken again. minimap scrolls down to really small at the start of each battle. not a big deal but annoying as fuck
Imo, 9.16 is one of the best patches in wot, since the damage counter/panel thing is something i really needed (since i use a vanilla client) and the spotting system is just great now. Paris is an amazing map and everyone likes it i think
1) spotting system seems to be more or less the same, albeit with less random materializations 2) Paris is just more of the same chokepoint/hallway/corridor crap WG has been doing for as long as I can remember, nothing special at all about it 3) I don’t run mods and likely never will
Even thought I like all the new features added in this update, I still think its crap. They added some stuff to the UI that should have been there for years and added another cookie-cutter hallway map, but made no attempt to adjust the balance of the game anywhere. I sound like a broken record every time a patch drops, but I feel like WarGaming is making balance tweaks to their game less and less (and they didn’t do it very often to begin with).
SEA Server gets 9.16 on this wednesday
Best patch in a while. I particularly like the indicators.
I quit WoT years ago
