Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/273818.html Hello everyone, this Thursday, there will be the second round of the test and Storm is posting a bit more about 8.11: - Waffenträger E-100 will be nerfed by 200 hitpoints, otherwise everything will stay the way it is in round 1 of the test - developers are working on various 8.11 issues, such as client crashes and interface bugs, practically every problem reported will be fixed, how exactly and what exactly – Storm will tell that later - T-54 model in test 1 was apparently unfinished: it will get the same height as Type 59 From discussion: - Storm states that the new Soviet premium medium tank will most likely be the “light” T-54 with 80mm frontal hull and 180mm turret, but it’s not yet entirely sure, the developers haven’t started working on it yet - the log on T-54 was moved to the side, because that’s where it was on the 120mm frontal armor T-54 model - T-54 model change is finally “historical” after 3 years, Storm states it’s not in order to prepare for HD client, it’s just a fix - apparently the gold camo on test server (SS: the announced change with gold camo staying “saved” even if you sell the tank) is working correctly - Storm states that it’s not like WTE-100 allows 40 percent WR tomatoes to deal 5k damage, he adds that there is a difference between WT E-100 and other TDs in damage, but much smaller - Windstorm size is 1000×1000 - Storm: there are no camo changes in 8.11 and there will be no camo changes further (SS: that means the issue Edrard discovered with the missing camo loss when shooting coefficient is some sort of bug – or intended to hide these data) - apparently, the “fixes” Storm mentions concern also the FOV changes - there will be no changes in “national battles” between 8.11 test and live 8.11 - 9.0 is being worked on in parallel to the 8.11 patch - Storm said he played national battles, they are okay - it’s theoretically possible according to Storm to create a medal for hunting TD’s (SS: the way it is now with arty and light tanks) - apparently, in the future, any new vehicles might be tested the way premium tanks are tested now (SS: as in, first on CT for supertesters, a patch later for common players), Storm states that any new tech needs two rounds of testing - apparently, there is a bug where some players cannot use their accounts to log on the test server (SS: in this case, it’s a Russian player complaining, but I have seen a complaint from EU server too), this bug however will not be fixed, it’s irrelevant to the testing itself according to Storm - Lowe collision model was not changed (SS: some player was complaining about being hit and whatnot) - the model where stock tank would be of different tier (SS: or MM weight) than elite tank was scrapped a long time ago, this won’t be implemented - no plans to buff or nerf British tier 10 TD and IS-7 for now - current round of TD nerfs is “the result of complex testing of tier 10 tank destroyers” - standard mode (SS: as in – two sides, two bases) will not be made optional - it’s possible WT E-100 will be further changed after 8.11, but Storm said that more changes would require more testing and there is not enough time in 8.11 for that - Q: “After losing 200hp, WT E-100 will be too weak – so, the plan to make an OP vehicle and then nerf it so as many people as possible buy it for free XP worked?” A: “Yes. I bought four yachts and three Bentleys for myself. And a golden toilet.” - Storm states that the option to disable maps you don’t want to play was not implemented, because it would stress the MM mechanism too much - for now, tier 10 TD hitpoints (as a whole) won’t be nerfed
