SerB entered new trolling phase: he’s now being a “grammar nazi”, commenting on grammars of those who are asking stupid stuff. Nice form of trolling :) Check also the Soviet tree for WoT Blitz Overlord posted. - SerB confirms that you will need entirely new skins for the HD client (SS: the old ones will not work), but WG will continue to allow you to make your own skins - skill MM for random battles is not being developed (SS: it will not come) - SerB (when commenting on one player’s whine – a player who wrote something in Russian not correctly, claiming there is a conspiracy against some players): “There is a Wargaming conspiracy against illiterate people” - SerB states that they already checked into the garage battle issue of players in teams that are losing, intentionally sabotaging their team or just quitting, he mentions “mega punishments” for early leavers as an option - the turret being ripped off during ammo rack explosion will be computed by the serverside Havoc, so that it flies the same for everyone seeing it. SerB states he’s not sure whether the turret will drop always bottom down (SS: since the bottom/inside of the turret is not modelled), but states it’s possible that the turret will simply always end up with its bottom down - when asked about T110E1 and T110E2 tanks, SerB points the player towards Hunnicutt’s book “Firepower”, T110 section, first two pictures - SerB states that there are currently no guarantees, what kind of computer will you need for HD client maximum details, but states that it should work fine on GT760 graphic card - Object 278 tank is not planned (SS: experimental Soviet heavy tank with 130mm M-65 gun) - when shooting a large building, it will be possible by bring it down by shooting the ground floor to make it collapse - SerB states that it will most likely be impossible to destroy a tank by burying it under the falling house rubble, because a lot of the rubble will be computed client-side (Havoc) and it is practically impossible to make such calculations server-side without crashing the servers - the camera field of view will not be made selectable via a settings slider - apparently, a turret, ripped off by an ammo rack explosion, will keep its former armor (when calculating penetrations and shells flying through it) – SerB states that if it doesn’t work (if they don’t manage to implement it), it will be made impenetrable - A-44 V-5 engine having too few hitpoints (it has 120, while other engines of its tier have 190+)? “No comment” - AMX-30 will come (“it’s done when it’s done”) - new KV-1 and IS track model is not connected with (a part of) the HD model introduction - SerB states that LAN tournaments and team battles are two different things: that’s why team battles have “draws”, while LAN tournaments have winners counted by points - captured German KV-1 will be slightly worse than elite Soviet KV-1 (“as usual”) - apparently (if I understand it correctly), Germans could get some hightier medium premium tanks, such as Panther Ausf.F, Panther II prototype (SS: Panther II hull with Panther I turret) or East German T-54, but no more info (“details at our discretion”) - Tetrarch has no special MM rules (SS: apart from the ones already known) - apparently the lowtier Soviet tank destroyers, announced a long time ago (SU-76BM and IT-45 was it I think) were not forgotten, their fate will be disclosed in the future - SerB confirms that within the tank (after armor penetration), the shell flies the distance of 10 gun calibers - when roaming gets implemented, you will only be able to use it via client (SS: some Russian was asking whether he will be able to write something to the evil capitalists on forums or portal) - SerB states that fines for teamdamage were never directly tied to the amount of damage you cause - SerB states that things not controlled by server will have no influence on the battle (SS: as in, there will be no cheats abusing havok physics) - Havoc has nothing to do with modelling holes in the ground apparently - Overlord admits that the M60 might not have been a good choice for CW reward tank
