- according to the developers, 8.11 TD nerf caused the decrease of amount of TD’s in hightier battles - according to the developers, the TD situation is like this: in the beginning, TD’s were actually quite unpopular despite their alpha and camo advantage and that changed only with the big arty nerf, where a certain number of artillery players transferred to TD’s - one of the reasons the potential damage stat got renamed is the fact the developers are preparing to implement rewards for soaking up damage (SS: “tanking” in Warcraft terms) - apparently, animated tank effects, such as automatic shell ejectors, are planned for “medium” future (as in, not far from now, but not soon) - after 8.6, there were no changes in accuracy and shell spread within aim circle - in 9.0, new premium and non-premium hangars will come, it will be “very cool” - independent suspension will appear on reworked models only - ASAP for 9.0 will come within next few days - at some point in the future, there will be massive vehicle rebalances - T-54 HD model will have the log on the back - concrete-piercing shells will not be introduced to WoT - arty shells exploding in mid-air and arty shells flying outside of the aim circle were caused by some bug in server connection between nodes during certain distribution setups - 122mm IS not having historical gold shells in historical battles? “How terrible” - tank names on minimap: when it’s done it’s done - apparently, the “potential damage” will be renamed to “damage, reflected by armor” or something like that - historical battles will have separate stats, like team battles - according to Storm, confrontation has to be switched off, not just switched off by default, because those few people, who would switch it on, would constantly suffer from long queues and problems with MM and there would be a lot of whining - in 9.0, the bug where missions don’t display the counter properly on the mission screen tab, will be fixed - according to Overlord, World of Tanks: Blitz is practically ready for beta
