Recently World of Tanks the online MMO tank warfare game received a pretty sizable update with it’s 8.3 version. 8.3 adds a new Chinese Tech Tree that features an assortment of new tanks for gamers to enjoy. The Chinese tanks like their real world counterparts ar a “hodgepodge” of different tank parts. While this might not sound as appealing as the American armor that’s in the game these new tanks offer some special advantages. The biggest advantage this nation’s armor offers is in the light tank class, as you’ll be able to work them up to tier VIII which give you some amazing speed on the battlefield. For those that like the bigger tanks you’ll find the medium tanks have a bit of a damage dealing edge while the heavy class can take a pretty healthy amount of damage.

If you have been playing WOT for a while the new Tech Tree gives you a 17 new tank to work towards parking in your garage. Getting into these tanks was quite fun in-game. Being able to zip around the battlefield in a light armor tank could be great when your team is keeping you covered as you make a dash to hold the enemies capture point. This new line of tanks gives commanders a new strategic tool to use in battle. Also like every MMO update, 8.3 also brings a ton of balancing to the game’s other tanks, you can check out the full release notes here.
