- the situation when a teammate runs into your shot (that is already flying) will still count as teamdamage, won’t be changed - SerB states that the assumption premium tanks should have lower average winrate than regular tanks of the same class is correct - SerB considers too high winrate for premium tanks a problem: “We don’t sell pwnage for money” - HE shells actually work better against destructable objects, buildings/objects have their own hitpoints and HE shells damage them more than AP shells - SerB states that the HESH effect on sloped surfaces is taken into account in their parameters - in the 7/42 battles, both the manually and automatically collected teams will play with each other - 7/42 battles: as written earlier, the skill will be measured by special skill rating. This rating will based only on 7/42 battles, everyone will start with 0 rating (“first few weeks will be funny”) - the maximum speed of vehicles in game is usually the nominal vehicle speed (SS: from documentation) - if tracks and spaced armor are hit by ramming, they reduce the damage the vehicle takes by ramming - it’s possible that weather effects will be implemented at some point, same goes for realistic shooting effects from bushes (“flashes”), day/night battles and ammorack explosion shockwaves - apparently the terrain destruction and effects like in SpinTires demo won’t be implemented - both premium arty and premium light tank of tier higher than 6 won’t be implemented - at first, the 7/42 battles you won’t be able to select a team setup for the respective map, but this option will be implemented afterwards - maps in team battles will be selected automatically - the killed crewmember XP (90 percent of a live one) will stay as it is now - you won’t be able to troll with useless tanks in 7/42 battles, the team commander will approve which tanks and players will enter the battle - minimum number of players for 7/42 will be 5. You can either pick the entire team manually, or you can pick only a few and the rest will be added automatically - in 8.9 old companies will keep the old interface for now, but 7/42 will have a brand new one - devs haven’t decided yet whether to buff the “113″ tank, data is being collected - apparently the 3 caliber rule will be cancelled for HEAT shells in 8.9 - player stats from 7/42 will be kept separate - ingame tournaments will be implemented after the 7/42 mode is live - there will be something like “7/42″ mode for tier 10′s too (smaller teams), it will be separate from Clanwars
