Some of you might be interested in the fact that with the current weekend event, WG EU achieved a fail hattrick. First, there was no discount on E-25 (and now it is), then the new 8.9 TD’s were included even though this was not indended and now, they can’t even make the icons for them right. As a bonus, when you click the new TD names, you will not be redirected to the Wargaming site, but to Wotwiki. Sometimes I really wonder whether this is an intentional trolling or not. - there are apparently no systematic plans to increase the overall skill of players in WoT Q: “Why did Zlobny leave Wargaming?” A (SerB): “To every thing there is a season… a time to be born, and a time to die, a time to kill, and a time to heal, a time to break down, and a time to build up, a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together, a time to keep silence, and a time to speak, a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” (King James Bible, Ecclesiastes 3,5,7) - machineguns on the top of the turret are not a part of the collision model, they can’t be hit and they do not count towards tank height when it comes to spotting (you can’t be spotted because a machinegun is sticking above the bush) - SerB doesn’t know of any tanks with turrets without crewmembers, that would fit World of Tanks – there was the idea of Leopard prototype C (SS: Borgward), but it won’t be implemented - some dive bombers (their modifications) like Ju-87 and Pe-2 will appear in WoWp - some vehicles have machineguns on the top of the turret in order to be easier to recognize (at first glance) - whether TD’s will or will not be nerfed is not connected to the fact whether Zlobny is or is not working in WG - in connection with Zlobny leaving WG, there will be some changes in tank balance (SS: well, that didn’t take long) - so far, WG has no candidate for a tier 8 premium British tank - there will be no optional hulls for premium tanks - SerB will not be rebalancing tanks personally “like in the old days” (he adds he never actually did that even before)
