Armored Warfare | Update 0.24 – Caribbean Crisis Part II

Hello tankers,

two days ago update 0.24 was launched on the live battle servers for Armored Warfare! This update is the second part in the Caribbean Crisis series.

We have the patch notes for you:

Gameplay Mechanisms

General Changes

  • AFK and inactive players will no longer receive the base payment for battle participation which would normally prevent them from lose credits in a battle
  • Improved Spall Liner retrofit now reduces internal module damage by 25% or 50% (for v2)
  • Updated the description of PvE consumables to correspond to their actual mechanics
  • Order of the Captor will no longer be awarded for battles that end up with a drew (simultaneous base capture)
  • We changed the way crew saving throws work – in a case of a successful saving throw, the crew will now take 15 percent damage instead of the damage being completely negated
  • Changed the icon of the “Specialist” commander skill
  • Recon and Master Gunner medals are now possible to obtain in Special Operations
  • We changed the way consumable stacking works – if you take two repair kits or med kits to battle (a larger one and a smaller one) at the same time, only the larger bonus of the two will work (they no longer stack)
  • Updated the description of several Epic Medals
  • Fixed the “Stuck on Authentication” issue
  • The In Your Face challenge (dealing damage while being within 150 meters) has been removed from the list of challenges

PvE AI Behavior Changes

In Update 0.24, in order to address the AI ATGM damage output, we are introducing two changes with significant impact on AI behavior:

  • The AI team composition was adjusted to include fewer vehicles that rely heavily on guided missiles
  • We adjusted the rules for AI module damage dealing and targeting in order to eliminate the cases where the AI opponents keep your modules permanently destroyed (this change applies to non-ATGM damage as well)

These changes, along with the previously introduced ATGM rate of fire reduction, will bring the general AI ATGM damage output to the desired levels.

New Vehicles

We are introducing the following new vehicles in Update 0.24 along with a new dealer, Oscar Faraday.

  • Rooikat 76 Tier 5 AFV

  • Sprut-SD Tier 8 TD
  • ASCOD LT-105 Tier 8 Premium LT
  • K21 XC8 Tier 10 LT
  • VT4 Tier 8 MBT (available in Zhang Feng’s vehicle pool)

The following items will also be available from this new dealer:

  • 3 dealer decals
  • 2 dealer avatars (one of them animated)
  • 3 player titles
  • 3 base colors
  • New commander, Andrey Zaytsev (sniper style, his basic ability is an increase of camouflage factor when stationary)
