Source: http://world-of-ru.livejournal.com/2905500.html Hello everyone, Russians had today a stream with some community members and leadership, including Evilly and some developers. Here is the info, as summed up by Maiorboltach (RU server). - exclusive tanks will go primarily to clans. Random battle players will get exclusive tanks via missions similiar to the current IS-6 one (eg. heavy grind) - IS-6 won’t get a penetration buff - unification of two accounts won’t be implemented - next patch will not be 9.0, but 8.11 – it will contain UI features, such as disabling the chat - historical battles: the battle of Prokhorovka and the battles around Lake Balaton are planned (in the first wave). There will be the respawn mechanism and there will be non-equal balance (for example one team has 7 tanks and the other has 30). At first, there will be the same maps as there are currently in game, but eventually there will be maps made exclusively for historical battles - when logging on the test server, you won’t have all premium tanks at your disposal in your garage, you’ll have to buy them like it was until now - garage battles will be in WoWp - it’s possible garage battles as a separate game mode will appear in WoT - T-44-85 will come in 8.11 - newbies have a special MM now: for 20 first battles, newbies play only with other newbies (SS: eg. not sealclubbers) - there will most likely be new premium tier 8 tanks - small machineguns will not shoot in the game - T95 will not recieve a speed buff - Chaffee branch prolongement won’t be in the next patch - Italian branch will not be a separate tree, it will be a part of the EU tree - there will be a new game mode for clans in 2014 - there will be a possibility to choose map in “clan battles” (??? probably meant Team battles) soon - there will not be a separate server for noobs - very soon there will be a WoT Blitz stream - Mac OS WoT client is being worked on, it will be available soon, currently it’s being tested internally - T95E6 will be a reward for Clans with 90 percent probability - WG is experimenting with night battles, currently, there is a new system of spotting and visibility being tested internally - WoT XboX will be released in the beginning of 2014
