For those interested in mobile gaming, Overlord wrote the requirements for World of Tanks: Blitz - currently, HEAT shells are subject to 3-caliber and 10-caliber rules (SS: 3-caliber rule concerns overmatch, 10-caliber rule concerns the length of the shell flight within the vehicle) - Superpershing will be sellable for gold only before 8.9 goes live - SerB states that “tests will show”, what computer will run improved graphics in WoT at 50-60FPS, but it should be “normal gaming computer” - Radeon notebook graphic card optimizations for WoT? “I will tell when it’s done” - M6A2E1 too weak against tier 10′s and 9′s? “go hulldown, attack higher tiers from the side and if that’s too tough, don’t play M6A2E1″ - Object 416 M-63 gun changing length between stock and top turrets? “It was done so.” (SS: as in “we simply did it like that”) - SerB states that despite the second A-44 turret is called “ekranirovannaja” (with spaced armor screens), there are no special armor screens in the model. SerB also says that when a turret with additional armor is implemented, if there is no space between the armor and the additional plate, the armor is modelled as a single block (SS: as in if you have a 100mm armor and then 20mm plate riveted directly on it, it will be modelled as a 120mm homogenous armor plate) - SerB states that if the “Turbopanther” is implemented, it will probably have just the historical armor, as unhistorical armor is added only when absolutely necessery, but emphasizes that it’s just an idea, not a real plan yet - WoT HD textures? “I will show when the time is right” - captured tanks will not be in 8.9 - smoothbore guns won’t be implemented, because they have too much penetration - roughly 12 man-months are needed to implement one tank into the game: this includes historical research, modelling, textures, other effects, sound and balance (SS: later, SerB explains that the “sound” part is matching the correct (standard) sound to the vehicle) - the 25 percent penetration spread is not a “random number”, it reflects the quality of shells and armor and is based on how often did Soviet 76mm guns ZIS-3 and F-34 penetrate the Tiger flanks - when the researchable hulls come, tier 1 British Vickers Mk.I might be replaced by 1921 Vickers Light Tank and merged with Vickers Mk.II (SS: here I am not totally sure with the translation) - if you detrack a burning tanks, you won’t get assist bonus for the fire damage, as it is tied to the shell that caused it before the detrack - Lowe situation apparently won’t be changed (SS: the question was aimed at 3 T-44′s in existence (T-44, T-44-85, T-44-122), whether something similiar could be done with Lowe) - national battles (only German vs only Americans for example) won’t be implemented for now - SerB personally is satisfied with the Encounter on Mountain Pass, it will be changed only “when necessery” and apparently it doesn’t have bad statistics - when asked about the ban and compensation system being sufficient in game, SerB states he’d ban more
