As you might have noticed, the next EU tier 10 on discount is the Jagdpanzer E-100, not the IS-4 (or E-50M), that was predicted earlier (based on the Russian/SEA pattern). That makes the next tier 10 on discount completely unpredictable from now on :( - apparently, the RU servers are suffering from the same lag issues as the EU ones (SS: good, that means it’s not EU-specific) - Panzer IV will be grey even after the HD remodelling - Storm confirms the leaked Panzer IV model as valid, it’s still in the “old quality” as “the last of the Mohycans” (SS: from 9.0 on models will come in new quality only apparently) - HD Panzer IV model will not appear in 9.0 - apparently, Wargaming HD models will have more polygons than War Thunder models As for the lags… I have readers writing me every day to write something about them, but I have absolutely no idea, what to write. I have no idea what might be causing them, everyone keeps saying it’s something “along the way”. In Czech Republic, O2 (probably the biggest internet provider) seems to have issues with it – earlier (months ago), I was playing on the same connection at 20-30 ping. Then it jumped to 70-80 for no reason. Then random packet loss, but it wasn’t gamebreaking. Now, I am playing on both servers on 90-130 ping and tons of packet loss. Not much else I can say about it.
