- apparently, there is a photo of a Japanese tank (fortification) A player asked, whether this is the picture of a turret of the possible tier 10 Japanese heavy (that was published earlier from Russian sources). SerB states that they held a long discussion about this and it seems that yes, this turret came from the tank. - Yurko2F states that statistics are collected for all tanks, even the gift tanks and their decision and these tanks are changed “when necessery” - Foch 155 weakpoints on its roof were not removed - those premium vehicles that have their profitability higher than Jagdtiger 88 will not be income-nerfed - Q: “What is the M6A2E1 (“alien”) supposed to do with tier 10 tanks?” A: “Shoot them” (Storm later states it will not get better MM) - regarding the changes in US tank suspension details (as announced in patchnotes 8.11): There are basically two models of US suspension – one is like this (T57): and one is like this (T110E5): As you can see, one has a “hole”, the other one doesn’t. They will all be unified, unfortunately I don’t know which version will apply for all (Storm hints that all the holes will in fact be removed, this change will come to other nations too apparently) - confirmed: T23 will be able to go back with the same speed as it can go forward with (SS: yes, this is historical, it was a type of transmission that allowed this), its maximum speed will be 56 km/h - the mode selection settings will not be implemented straight into the hangar - new US medium line will not come anytime soon - Storm confirms that the arty MM weight reduction was not an intended buff, but a measure in order to stop MM from balancing artillery with heavies on top of the team - Object 268 will also get a reversing speed nerf - the bug where a part of the Soviet camo patters (summer) looks “bleak” will be fixed - Storm “will see”, whether separate National battles statistic will have influence on balancing the vehicles - multicore support will not come in 9.0 – it will come later, it’s being developed - maps specifically for team battles were never planned and they are not planned now - dynamic characteristics in hangar haven’t been developed yet, but they are planned - more tank customization is also planned - Storm confirms: Foch lower front plate will be nerfed from 120mm to 100mm - IS-6 profitability does not lag behind the one of Jagdtiger 88, it’s fine (won’t be buffed) - fires on “Ruinberg on Fire” will cause massive FPS drops? “Various ways on various computers”
