Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/279019.html Hello everyone, Storm wrote that recently, he returned from a personal trip and wants to know your opinion on test 9.0 What did you like? What didn’t you like? Specifically: - historical battles - reworked tanks - performance (FPS drops) - new UI - new post-effect in sniper mode From the discussion: - the five empty class slots on the queue screen is a bug - currently, playing lowtier tanks in historical battles will be stimulated by additional XP and credits, later by the possibility to respawn - respawn in HB: “when it’s done it’s done” - dynamic characteristics of tanks in hangar aren’t impossible to implement, the developers just didn’t bother until now - the fact tiers were removed from the queue screen in 9.0 (SS: see the screenshot in the first answer of today’s post) is not caused by Wargaming wanting to hide that info from players, but by something else (SS: as in, something technical), Storm will tell later why - it is possible that the ammo rack explosion mechanism will me altered: when a tank burns, each “tick” there will be a small chance of ammo rack explosion (regardless of damage to the ammo rack module itself). - Confrontation mode will be fixed and will return at some point - Tiger’s “flat roadwheels” a player complained about are fine, they won’t be reworked - the amount of smoke in 9.0 (SS: maps are more “hazy”) is “atmospheric” (SS: as in, making the map look better) and allows the maps to be made bigger (SS: I hope they at least make this optional, at longer distances I am getting FPS drops) - Storm knows about the increased system load of the new hangar: “It’s more complex, it’s logical it will stress the system more” - new serverside tank motion will most likely come in 9.2 - the T-54 frontal plate mudguard is not a part of the collision model, because it’s made of wood - T-54 armor in test 9.0 is not yet final - the appearance of Jagdtiger in historical battles is correct, “it fought there according to some data about the 512. Heavy Anti-Tank Batallion” - it is not planned to increase test server capacity - more graphic settings are planned in the future, that’s why graphic setting window was reworked, they wouldn’t fit the old one And what about you? What did you like, didn’t like? Write in detail, I will send the link for Storm to see (if he chooses to do so).
