This is the regular daily QA thread. There will be one more special QA post after this today. - Storm states that the player opinion “there is less than one arty and one scout per battle on average” is not true according to WG’s statistics - how much arty in battles on average? “less than Storm would like” - Storm on Superpershing armor: “We are not hiding anything. As usual, we don’t comment on armor.” (SS: when accused that they are hiding some nerfs of SP armor) - the WT E-100 model is final - gold shells for T69 will (in connection with their penetration nerf) be automatically sold for credits for their purchase price in 8.8 - according to RU support, the “Lucky” achivement is bugged. Storm stated that it was not fixed in 0.8.8 - it’s technically possible to have different reload times for different shell types on one gun, but this won’t be implemented - Storm on MM fix in 8.8: “Some problems with settings of servers on which the MM runs were fixed – we will give them more computing power allocated on handling the battle queues, which will lead to better battle balancing.” - no plans to buff Soviet tier 10 heavies - IS-4 mantlet is penetrable easily. This is not a bug according to Storm. - 112′s characteristics are now final - no plans to improve IS-6 maximum speed - Storm states that the lower frontal plate of King Tiger is historical now (100mm), the 120mm picture circulating on the internets is wrong - VK4502P viewrange nerfs were done for “balance reasons” - it will not be possible to buy 112 or T-34-3 for gold in 8.8 - Storm confirms: the Sherman/T-34 “massive nerf” (aimtime, spread) are valid only for those special tanks in tutorial - Superpershing won’t recieve limited MM - regarding the VK3001H/VK3002M relationship: 1) VK3002M stats will start from zero 2) if VK3001H was unlocked – VK3002M will be unlocked 3) if you have VK3001H in the hangar, you will get a free VK3002 with a garage slot and 100 percent crew, but without ammo, equipment or consumables 4) if VK3001H had camo, this camo will be cloned to VK3002M (with same expiring time), this goes for decals/inscriptions too 5) any accumulated experience on VK3001H will be transferred to VK3002M - new VK3601H heavy tank MM weight and profitability “will be the same as on other tanks of its tier and class” - it’s possible Sacred Valley will be reworked, specifically the issue where upper team can light up the lower team easily, but not vice versa - Severogorsk won’t be limited to low tiers only - Superpershing will be sellable for gold only until 8.9 comes out - SerB states that the alleged experimental E-75 1200hp diesel was not real, only a wish of the designers. Maybach managed to bring its HL engine only to 1000hp until 1955 - if VK4502P is ever moved to tier 8, its armor will be nerfed to historical values (SS: in real life it was lot less, roughly like the one of the VK4502 without rear turret, the turret was only 80mm thick) - 128mm L/55 wouldn’t fit historically in top E-75 turret - GW E-100 not being able to dispose of a low medium tank because of bad depression? “Don’t let him reach you” - combat missions font might be made bigger (SS: Russians are complaining about its size) - in 8.8, teamdamage to a platoon mates will count as normal team damage (no free platoonmate killing) - all the removed engines can be found in your depot - the reason for the mid tier German changes was aligning all the tanks to roughly the same pattern (gameplay-wise) - in the new rating system, average XP counts without premium account
