- SerB on why WG won Golden Joystick despite the overwhelmingly negative response on RU forums: “It’s simply because the whiners are always more active” - Slava Makarov (main WoT producer) states he didn’t know in advance WoT would win - historical battles will have gold ammo (and it won’t be limited apparently) - teamdamage/teamkill automated system doesn’t track teamdamage done to certain classes (SS: as in, whether for example arty gets more teamdamage) - it’s possible the tier 5 KV-1S will have also a 122mm gun, but it’s a short gun (S-41, something like the KV-1 U-11) - the White Tiger-like events (SS: a promo action a year or two ago, when the players were fighting a “White Tiger” supertank as a promo to the White Tiger movie) aren’t done for organizational reasons anymore - player view from inside a tank is not planned - apparently LT’s as a class are not dying and won’t be buffed - yesterday, SerB wasn’t celebrating the Golden Joystick victory, he was celebrating his son’s 20th birthday - SerB is fine with the fact WG won the Golden Joystick again, but he feels indifferent to it - tier 10 heavies rebalance? “As always – when necessery” - special “national” soundtrack (SS: as in tunes) for tanks of various nations? “Possible, but won’t be implemented for now” - Chi Nu Kai will most likely not appear in the ingame magazine before the Japanese branch is released (SS: that implies Japanese branch is scheduled for 0.9.0) - the statistics of how much certain tanks are getting critted is not collected continuously, it’s possible to collect it on demand, as it is too requiring (expensive) to collect it all the time - the terrain passability of Object 140 and T-62A is “roughly equal” - apparently a Capture the Flag mode won’t be implemented - WoT having the same aim reticles as WoWp? “We are still seeking the optimal solution for WoWp” - there was an obscure “IS model 1940″ tank, apparently with a BR-2 152mm gun, this however won’t be implemented, SerB states that it’s equal to the SU-100Y - before, there was an idea of making a new medium branch from a KV-13 tank, SerB however states that the tier 9 tank proposed for this branch was scrapped (unspecified reason) and so the developers decided to cancel the whole branch and to enter its proposed tier 10 as a CW reward tank (Object 907) - apparently, the guns in Jagdtiger 88 and Nashorn were not identical, they only had the same ballistic properties - SerB states that KV-1S will indeed turn into two tanks at first (tier 5 KV-1S and tier 6 KV-85/100/122) (KV-122 with D-25T will NOT be a tier 7 tank). However, later, KV-1S will merge with KV-1 as a hull option for KV-1, so in the end there will be just KV-1 and KVsomething - the solution to sell new premium tanks only via gift shop was accepted because “it’s easier to control them that way in case one proves to be overpowered” - it was “always possible” to make non-square maps (for example 500×2000), but this won’t be implemented - apparently it’s possible to make two teams balanced without both teams having the same amount of tanks, this is considered for historical battles - Q: “How do I make the crew appear in a hangar?” A: “Buy a hangar and hire a crew” :) - in the 7/42 mode, player skill is balanced to an enemy player skill: the mechanism that automatically adds players to your team does NOT add players matching the skill of the team - in 7/42, randomly assembled teams will play against manually assembled ones too - the option to hide player stats was scrapped because “it’s pointless” - it won’t be possible to hide one particular tank from your stats - a reliability of certain parts of vehicles is modelled by the amount of module HP (SS: as in, in real life an unreliable engine will have low hitpoints)
