This update will introduce a new skill “Precision Fire” and changes in the acceleration procedure. You will now be able to accelerate skill training using just Elite Experience for skills of levels I-V only, and when you use Elite Experience in combination with gold, the Crew Experience bonus will increase to 1,000%. Read on for the details.
Changes in Acceleration of Skill Training
Starting from Update 4.8, you will be able to accelerate skill training using just Elite Experience up to level V. To accelerate training of level VI–VII skills, you will need Elite Experience in combination with credits or gold.
Conversion of Elite Experience with additional payment in gold has become more profitable: bonus to Crew Experience increased from 300% to 1,000%. Now 40 plus 1 will give you 400.
These are major changes to the familiar mechanics. We tell you about such changes as soon as we can to give everyone an opportunity to convert Experience under the previous conditions.
New Skill—Precision Fire
Each vehicle class allows for training 5 different skills. And only light tanks were discriminated: there were only 3 skills to train for this vehicle class. In Update 4.8, light tanks will take a step towards equality.
What is maximum damage?
According to the game mechanics, each shell inflicts random damage within a range of +/-25% of its average damage. Thus, the IS with the top gun features 400 HP of average damage with an AP shell. This means that it can deal from 300 to 500 HP of damage with one hit. And with Precision Fire applied, it will inflict 500 HP of damage.
And what about HE shells?
This skill works for HE shells as well, but due to their specifics, the effect may not be as noticeable. The main rule: 3 shots must inflict damage, and after the skill is enabled, the fourth shot will be set with the maximum possible damage. But the final damage inflicted will depend on the shell penetration, armor thickness in the place of impact, and the burst radius.
Precision Fire is not the last skill for light tanks. This class of vehicles may receive the 5th skill in upcoming updates—players who like scouts will have something new to train! Stay tuned. And now—roll out!
