Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/262302.html Hello everyone, Storm recently posted a LJ post, where he is asking about patch 8.10 feedback. From the discussion: - apparently there will be no arty buff in 8.10, WG “never promised it” Wargaming reworked the personal rating formula a lot, Storm is preparing a detailed post for it, but in general: - hitrate influence was completely removed - the importance of the survival rate has been reduced - average damage per battle has been enhanced by adding spotting and detracking damage to the equation - analogically to the winrate and survival rate, there is now some penalty for VERY high average damage per battle, this will however not influence you unless you are a top 50 player - the battlecount multiplier has been removed, instead of it there is now a “functional dependence on the amount of battles” - Highway is scheduled for rework in next patch (after 8.10), there is some imbalance in it, but not as critical as to remove it completely - Dragon Ridge will not return apparently - Port will be removed without a “geographical equivalent” replacing it (for CW regions) - gun penetration in game is not based on DeMarre formula, but on real penetration tables - medals will be removed from companies, so cheaters don’t grind them in rigged battles - for now, the ability to remove 2-3 maps you don’t want to play in random battles from the map pool won’t be implemented - WT RhB has better camo factor both when standing and when moving than Object 704 - Storm admits it’s possible the TD’s (SS: unclear if only the new German ones are meant) have too good camo - replay settings system will not change until serverside replays are introduced - test server capacity will not be increased And what do you think of the test?
