Source: http://world-of-ru.livejournal.com/2890521.html Hello everyone, Stanislav “Veider” Kargin made one of his weekly streams yet again and Maiorboltach from RU LJ forums was kind enough to re-write the answers into text. Here’s a summary of what Veider said: - M26E4 Super Pershing will be buffed, but not in the next patch - Top tier TD’s will be rebalanced very soon, but how exactly is secret for now. It’s possible all top tier vehicles will be reviewed and rebalanced - in 9.0 there will be no new tanks whatsoever, apart from possibly one premium tank (which one is secret for now) - T-34-3 won’t be buffed, the tank is fine, if a bit lackluster - night battles will not come anytime soon, Veider adds that it will be like blind moles fighting in the dark and it doesn’t look too good - the new (SS: as in next) nation that is planned is the EU tree, but it is not sure when, WG has no plans so far ahead - apparently there will be no map choosing in team battles, the map will only be displayed before the battle starts - new Chinese vehicles have the same problem as the Japanese heavies (SS: holes in tree, not enough info) - Roaming is still being tested, not sure if it will come in 0.9.0 - Veider uses Jagdtiger 88 for farming - KV-5 will definitely not be buffed, the vehicle is doing just fine in battles - Lowe won’t apparently be buffed further either and IS-3 will not be buffed either, as it is “the most balanced vehicle in the game” - probably the most unbalanced (SS: overnerfed) premium tank is the Super Pershing, it might be reworked - the “Alien” M6 buff is not planned for now - Panzer IIJ is overpowered, it won’t be buffed - British tier 10 TD will not be nerfed, Jagdtiger 88 speed will not be buffed - the new upcoming map will be Kharkov: it’s much like Ruinberg, a 70 percent city map, only with higher buildings - it’s possible Maus might recieve further buff somehow, but Veider is “waiting for now” - when told that cybersports players are whining because arty is useless, Veider replies that it’s pointless to talk about artillery, since there are “other plans for them” (SS: as in, for cybersports) - Veider states that tank transfers from player to player (SS: as in, trading tanks) will be allowed only when players stop stealing accounts (SS: which means never) - E-10 (SS: the “Hetzer”) is planned for release, apparently the adjustable suspension is a small problem - US Christie tanks were postponed for far future - FCM F1 is not planned for now - SU-85i will be released soon as a regular premium vehicle - new French vehicles (TD/MT/HT) do not have the highest priority, the priority is in HD models and alternative hulls - Highway is being completely reworked by now - Wargaming planned new US medium branch, but it was postponed, its top tier is the T95 Medium Tank, very similiar to the Soviet T-54 according to Veider - current Wargaming player rating won’t be removed, Veider thinks it’s almost perfect now - RhB WT will not be nerfed soon, but its performance is being watched carefully - apparently, in far future, players will be able to reset their player statistics (SS: I am not absolutely sure I got that right) - Char 2C bis and Sturmtiger were both modelled already but later postponed, but the 2C bis case is that Wargaming doesn’t simply know where to put it in regular branch and don’t really feel like pushing it at all costs, there are 5-10 such vehicles on WG “shelves” - rear-turret VK4502B will be buffed - US premium TD: there is one very paper vehicle (SS: as in, not very well developed) for tier 8, but that one has not even reached pre-production stage in real life (SS: odd) - AMX40 is fine statistics wise, but really lackluster and it cannot influence the battle as much as other tanks of the same tier - it’s possible there will be a tiny buff of ARL V39 - Historical battles will come in 2014, maybe in first half - there will be changes to the T49 tank destroyer - Object 263 branch is “playable” according to Veider: “Noone promised it would be easy” - it’s possible T23 medium tank will return to the game, but not soon, WG keeps it in mind however - T18 will not be nerfed - Veider on T7 Combat Car: “Well, let me tell you like this, it’s not exactly an ultraOP vehicle” - new maps for team battles were not introduced, because there was a clash of two groups, the regular players wanted new maps, hardcore cybersport guys wanted to play only the old maps and since TB is meant for cybersports, WG decided not to put new maps in it - new tier 8 LT will come in 2014 - there will be no arty vehicle amongst the gift tanks - there will be no tank and airplane battles on the same map, Veider states that when he played Battlefield, he always got really pissed when he got bombed in his tank by a plane and he couldn’t do anything about it - IS-7 statistics are closely watched for now, this goes for IS-4 too - Q: “When will there be fewer noobs in the game?” A: “When you leave *laughs*” - the “quality of armor” parameter will not return - in near future, WG will buff tier 8 premium profitability, but not by much - Veider states that if he really wanted to get that IS-6 from the event, he could do it in 3 days
