- more detailed voiceover system regarding hits (helping players to figure out what happened) will be introduced relatively soon - it’s not yet 100 percent decided that the national battles (confrontation mode) will be removed - there are no plans to introduce new functions (SS: to buff) premium account - there are no plans to change the Ruinberg map - no special development is running regarding the loss of synchronisation between server and client, Storm states these issues are not caused by Wargaming, but by ISP’s - for now, the exact list of tanks for various historical battles won’t be disclosed - no exact details for “clan bases” will be disclosed yet - Storm doesn’t know exactly, when (if) the arty aim circle gets fixed - in 8.11, module crit chance did not change - no plans to buff IS-6 penetration - in 2014 there will be no researchable (regular) US medium tanks implemented - for now, there are no plans for Super Pershing changes - KV-5 will not be buffed (apparently it’s performing even better than is the average) - MBT-70 will not be introduced - SU-122-44 will not be buffer (if I understood it correctly, Storm wrote that if anything, it actually needs a nerf) - KV-1S split: when it’s done it’s done (SS: 9.1 or 9.2 was it? something like that) - regarding ingame sounds, Storm stated that current task of WG developers is to introduce new (“normal”) sounds of tracks, engine, shooting and hits, in far future, there might be dynamic sounds such as branches of trees hitting a tank when it is passing through it And now, some answers by Evilly, courtesy of Maiorboltach (I kinda summed it up, as usual) - Diaries of the Developers will show detail plans for this year apparently - Havok will run on a separate core (SS: if I understand it correctly) - while WG will try not to force players with very bad computers to have to buy new ones, Evilly states that progress doesn’t stand on one place, new hardware is being developed, developers will try to make the game comfortably playable for both those who have bad computers and those who have good ones - developers are looking into an option to have the HD textures download optional - one of the priorities this year is the “gameplay atmosphere”, including the locations (maps) - Evilly confirms Kharkov, Stalingrad, Konigsberg and Minsk maps - maps will furthermore be improved atmospherically, for example by adding weather - Ruinberg on Fire and winter Himmelsdorf were very well accepted by the public apparently - Evilly confirms for 2014 tier 8 Japanese premium medium, Soviet tier 8 premium medium (“light T-54″) and states that the German premium “early version of Panther” will appear (SS: almost certainly not true), he states that “several branches of regular vehicles” will appear in second half of 2014 (SS: almost certainly not true) - Evilly confirms that one of the regular branches in 2014 will be a British branch, but it’s all in flux - Evilly states that some British tier 10 tanks (SS: notice the plural!) will be replaced by other candidates (SS: FV4202 – most likely for Vickers MBT, FV215b (120) is unhistorical as well and I bet it will be replaced by something else, most likely the early Chieftain P6 Xlucine was measuring) - the FV4202 change will not come earlier than middle of the year apparently - other vehicle priority is prolonging the Americans and German LT’s to tier 8, this will likely not happen in the first half of the year - KV-1S will be split into two tanks (SS: apparently in 9.2), one will be tier 6, the other tier 7 (SS: one of the variants is current KV-1S will be moved to tier 7, it will be like a “lighter IS”) - it’s not yet finally decided, but it’s possible that the minimap tank names will come - there are no plans to ban XVM completely and punish its users
