For the Record: 25.1.2014
- apparently, mastery badges won’t be rewarded with credits or XP (SerB: “Greed is bad”) - SerB states that the German captured KV-1 was not equipped with an 88mm gun, but with the 75mm - apparently, after the TD alpha nerf, their shell price will remain the same - Q: “Did you ever consider making a “sandbox” game with “free world”?” A: “You see, we didn’t do it for students and schoolkids, who don’t do squat. We made the game for adult men, who are successful in real life and have time for only short game sessions. Students and schoolkids – go play Warcraft.” - Q: “Why is there no US premium TD?” A: “And there has to be one according to User Agreement?” - apparently (SS: if I understand this correctly), CW format is changing to be more casual friendly - tier 8 premium German medium tank? “If there are any plans, I will tell” - apparently, the T-54 remodelling concerns only the 120mm frontal armor hull – when the alternative 100mm hull is introduced, it will look like the “old” (8.10) T-54 - it’s possible T-44-85 will not appear at all: “It’s better to implement a normal tier 8 prem than this poor guy” – a candidate for that tier appeared - it’s theoretically possible for the post-mission message (that appears in the garage) to appear on the map loading screen - apparently, the Field of View changed in 8.11 (SS: weird, didn’t notice), before it was different for various resolutions, now it’s the same - player asked Storm about the national battles, whether this is what the developers wanted. Storm: “Definitely. Almost an ideal setup.” - roaming is “being worked on and polished” - big maps (twice as big as the current ones) are being worked on - Sturmtiger being worked on, no ETA - there are plans for Chinese SPG’s and TD’s, no ETA - Storm states that 8.11 shouldn’t run slower on weak computers – in fact, some weak computers will see FPS increase - it’s now 100 percent sure that Wargaming will remove the class camo bonus when firing a gun for all the tank destroyers (SS: as in, tank destroyers will no longer be harder to spot when firing a gun of the same caliber than other classes) - generally, in the future, all large caliber guns will make the vehicle easier to spot than it is now - the two changes above will come either in 9.0 or 9.1, as it requires long testing Overlord on national battles: Vehicle balance has never been tailored to cater for national battles (same nation teams), so we might get some unexpected results which will require changing/fixing. This applies to particular vehicles and particular nation vs nation opposition. This is interesting – from the Reddit QA (author – Deception_WG): The developers are working on a different approach for clans but first we will get improvements on how the system works, which means better stability less technical problems. Currently we do no plan to increase the size of EU CW map. On creating historically accurate tanks (author – Deception_WG) Yes, we are in contact with many museums in the world, such as Bovington (England), Saumur (France), Munster (Germany) and many others especially in Russia of course. Then when we have the correct dimensions, plans and blueprints from them, the are taking the data to make the models and then re-checked by our historical experts to be as accurate as possible.
