9.1 first thoughts

9.1 first thoughts

Postby Spack » Wed Jun 11, 2014 6:03 pm

Got WoT updated this evening, and so far 9.1 is looking good. Getting a few more fps (up from around 25fps to 30-35fps in normal mode, kicking up to 40fps in sniper) with the same graphics settings, and the new sound effects are nice - love the tinkering of shell casings when in sniper mode, and the booms are a bit deeper which is a vast improvement over the somewhat tinny sounds in 9.0.

Will be interesting to see what the football game is like tomorrow :)

I did have trouble with XVM though, got stuck at "Updating Tankers" when logging in which is a mod issue. Removed XVM and it loaded up fine, but obviously now I have no idea what the other players are like :P

Just assume they are the usual bunch of mongs that inhabit the game with the occasional CW egotist thrown in and you won't be far wrong. Anything else is a bonus. :)

How do you have 9.1? I am still on 9.0 and it says my client version is up to date.
The only "hobby" GW is interested in is lining their pockets with your money.
