About the 8.10 FPS drops: if you have bad FPS issues on the test server, try disabling both track effect tickers. It worked for me, the track effects seem bugged. - Port confirmed to be completely removed in future – Storm: “We couldn’t find an acceptable solution for balance change on this map” - Storm confirms that it is possible for 150-152mm tier 10 TD guns to have alpha lowered to 750 (with appropriate decrease of reload time), but this decision is not confirmed yet - there will be new sound tracks added to WoT - in 8.10, the color of Chinese premium tanks (112, T-34-3, Type 59) will change, this change will apply only to premium tanks (SS: to distinguish them from the 100+1 Type 59 clones) - the abovementioned solution to change color will NOT apply on all premium tanks in WoT - the first of the new city maps will most likely come in the patch after 8.10 - according to SerB, winrate is the (best) skill indicator, average winrate is 49 percent, if you have a 55 percent winrate, you your skill is much higher than the average player skill in game. Other developer later adds: “Skill is the ability to win, not to deal damage. If you dealt a lot of damage and lost, you dealt in wrong place” - all destructable objects will be destroyed when penetrated - it takes only 5 minutes to add or remove maps from Team Battles
