Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/279323.html Hello everyone, Storm posted a list of changes, that will be made in the historical battles, based on the results of currently running test. These will include: - added the switching of sides (just like in random battles) – Germans in Kursk will no longer always start in the south, it will be random - all battles will have the amount of maximum MM weight points increased by 50-100 percent in order to increase the amount of tanks in battles - the ammo setups for some tanks will change, they will get less useless HE shells, some will get more gold shells (but Storm states it’s important not to overdo it, when it comes to the shell price) - some vehicles will get a hardcap on some battles, for example Tigers and SU-152 in Kursk - MM weights of Panthers and Tigers in Kursk will be fixed (they were too low) Reworked setups of tanks for individual battles Balaton – added SU-85, removed SU-76, added Nashorn and Jagdpanzer IV, removed the Jagdtiger Ardennes – changed the E8 gun to 76mm M1A1, added M4 Sherman with 105mm, removed Tiger I, added M10/Panther (premium), Panzer IV gun changed to L/48 Kursk – added premium Churchill, removed Panzer II Also, for lowtier tanks, there will be separate special missions for historical battles for them only (as extra incentive) From the discussion: - SU-85 in Balaton operation is historical - Marder won’t be added to Kursk, it would be too weak (it would get oneshotted) - T-70 will remain as the only scout in Kursk - the exploit, where under certain conditions it was possibleto override historical battle setups and force tanks in top configurations into battles was fixed – the bug had something to do with server instances switching - dynamic reward coefficient (for example XP/cred income bonus depending on current number of vehicles in queue) is not possible - noone will prevent you from selecting a popular tank (SS: like the Tiger for example), but you will have long queue waiting time - Jagdtiger was removed from the Balaton operation, as it turned out no Jagdtiger historically fought there
