Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/274677.html Hello everyone, Storm made a summary post, asking players, what they would like WG to address in WoT. From the discussion: - Wargaming knows about bots and Storm says they will fight them, but he also says there are much fewer of them than what players think, “less than 1 percent of all players” (there is an analysis running, after that botters will be banned) - new anti-bot system is in developing process - Storm states that saying every battle has 1-2 bots camping spawn points is exaggeration - Storm says that AFKers and leavers will be punished - according to Storm, North-West map in 8.11 is just fine - Storm admits that Severogorsk and Sacred valley have some balance problems - all the new “problematic” maps were made by the same people, who made the old maps - Komarin will be either once again reworked, or removed altogether - Storm uncovers plans for light tanks: “We will introduce top high-tier light tanks (tier 7-8) for main nations – USSR, Germany and USA. Old light tanks will get their battletiers changed and maybe some buffs” and “in any case, we will try to make the LT life easier” - regarding tier 9-10 light tanks introduction: there are no candidates even for main nations - US LT branch will start from Chaffee, candidates are T42 and T92 light tank (both for tier 8) - roaming will come in 2014 - a player was complaining that it makes little sense to do full damage to a tank by shooting a tiny copula or other external weakspot, since the shell doesn’t actually go through into the tank. Storm states that the developers have the possibility to assign reduced damage coefficient to a certain armor group, but if a 100-damage shell did for example only 50 damage when shooting a copula, there would be a lot of confusion amongst the players - the same thing as above could be said about HE shells (they are also confusing), Storm however states that the playerbase already understands that “HE = strange, AP = not strange”, removing them would just piss people off - developers are considering an option, where damaging the tracks or the gun (external modules) with high power shells would transfer some of the damage to the tank HP itself, if it came, it would be tied with additional text and sound info - Storm states that WoT has constant optimization, for example in 8.11 a lot of players report higher FPS (SS: including me – IF they fixed the new maps, haven’t tried) - optional blocking of showing your stats “has a huge number of opponents” - KV-220 will not be nerfed, there are too few of them to make a difference on battles - MM works fine ATM, the only real problem Storm sees is longer waiting time on tier 8, it will be solved - Storm states that currently it’s not as interesting to play arty because of large aiming time - there will be a US premium TD, a candidate was already found - there will be no maps especially for Team Battles - no hardcap for TD’s is planned, TD’s will be regulated by the means of balance - platoons (as whole) are doing okay statistically - historical battles mechanism will come in several rounds, for example the garage battle mechanism, that will be a part of the historical battles (“spawning”) will come later
