Wargaming.net has launched the 8.3 update which brings Chinese armor to the tank simulator MMO World of Tanks. The update is live today in Europe and Southeast Asia, while North America will get the update tomorrow. Korea will see the new Chinese tech tree on the 21st January.

8.3 introduces 17 new tanks from the mid-20th century which featured what Wargaming calls a "hotchpot" of designs, "including the first Japanese-made tank in the game - the Type 97 Chi-Ha. Heavy Soviet influences are reflected in the top-tier tanks, which also include a number of original Chinese models, some of which never went into mass production."

Check out the official 8.3 update trailer in the video below.

Instead of adding Chinese tanks, they should have added TD's and SPG's for the Brits or second TD line for the Germans. Also, they should have added more maps as they did in previous updates. WORST.UPDATE.EVER.

Another good reason to not go back to this camp-fest elitist game, by which I mean the big sluggers letting the newbies go forward to flag capture, die and wait for the heavies to finish. *snore*
