World of Tanks Blitz update 3.6 arrives today and brings tank commanders a wealth of new content including new French tanks, vehicle enrichment, rebalancing and gifts via the giftshop. A new update trailer has been released showcasing the new tanks and other additions/changes, and you can watch it below
Ten new French tanks have been added to World of Tanks Blitz in update 3.6. The Tier I Renault FT light tank is reasonably quick and maneuverable and has a very effective armament. Other light tanks are not so quick or maneuverable but are ideal for close combat. The Tier V, VI, VII medium tanks, BDR G1 B, ARL 44 and AMX M4 45 each have a good armament and despite a long reload time they can inflict impressive damage. Unfortunately their armour is all focused on the front eaving practically no armour on the sides or rear. The heavy tanks are where players want to get with this line, with their good speed and maneuverability combined with the drum type autoloaders. The Tier X AMX 50B is the fastest tank in the game and has a very accurate high penetration gun.
This update also brings rebalancing of the armour penetration of several medium tanks that proved to be a little overpowered and also lowers the armour rating of 3 Russian tanks to make them a little easier to damage.
Vehicle enrichment is introduced in this update and will allow players to purchase this for their Tier V-X tanks. Enrichment gives the tank the profitability of a Premium tank and can be purchased either for 2 weeks or permanently.
Due to the misuse of the chat system, either by inappropriate language or by using the system for gain, chat between the two teams has now been stopped. Allies can still chat to each other providing their vehicle is still in action.
Update 3.6 will certainly keep fans of the game busy for some time with all the new tanks. For a full run down of all changes visit the World of Tanks Blitz website here.
