Wargaming is about to start a new closed Supertest for a hit point increase t all Tier I to VI vehicles. The idea is that with these adjustments to HP, low-tier and mid-tier vehicles will last longer in battle, and at the same time make the transition to top-tier vehicles more comfortable.
Why increase the HP for Tier I to VI?
While researching new vehicles and going up the tiers, all players can notice and feel the difference in the increments to their tank stats and overall battle efficiency. One of the key parameters impacting vehicle efficiency is the hit points pool. Currently, the HP growth curve is to steep from Tier I to Tier VI and more gradual from Tier VII to Tier X.
Playing low-tier and mid-tier is less comfortable than it should be due to this reason. When facing vehicles of a higher Tier in battle, you can feel a big difference between the HP of your vehicle and the enemies.
What is planned to be done?
To make the HP amount progression more even, Wargaming will test an increase to HP polls of all vehicles of Tier I to Tier VI. The increment will be different for each Tier and will be defined by the same quotient for every vehicle of that Tier.
As per the table, the Tier I will receive the largest relative boost to their HP pools (+114%) for the duration of the Supertest. The reason is that currently, the HP difference between the tiers is the sharper the lower the tier goes.
For example, the MS-1, a Tier I Soviet tank, will have an HP pool of 215 points (instead of 100 points; rounded up) in the coming Supertest. The T-45, a Tier II Soviet tank, will get to 280 points (instead of 140 points; rounded up).
These changes will allow to:
- Soften the transition from a lower to a higher tier while following a branch
- Increase the mean survival time in low-to-mid-tier battles, making them more comfortable both for newcomers and experienced players researching a new branch
Please note, this is just the first testing stage, the exact adjustments quotients are not final for any tier and may change in future tests.
