For the Record: Storm asks: “What would you like to see in WoT”?
Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/285427.html Hello everyone, Storm is asking: “What would you like to see in WoT in general?” – by “in general”, he means stuff like “I want big maps” or “I want more new tanks” etc. – anything, really. So, what would you like? From the discussion: - the option to set your activity status in chat (DND, AFK etc.) will be implemented - new chat is developed, but it was seriously delayed, because it’s difficult to make it work for a million people at once - an indepenedent, separate client only for chatting with WoT/WoWp users is planned, based on HMRR protocol - “simulator mode” (hardcore mode without hitpoints): “If we ever do such a thing, it will have minimal priority, in other words ‘hell if I know when.” - ETA on fortifications? “I won’t say exact time not to jinx it, but quite soon” - there is a plan to make currently useless skills and equipment more useful, developers are thinking about now - regarding wishes for large flat maps: “And you have played such maps before? Shooting two pixels is not fun. We tested that many times.” - big maps are an interesting matters, if the issue with slow tanks is solved, but 2-3km viewrange is questionable - instead of implementing map choosing for random battles, Storm wants to remove 10 least popular maps from the game. This is just an idea and it is not yet sure which maps, but developers like it - disabling maps you don’t want to play will NOT be implemented. Storm states that they wanted to do it, but they ran some simulations and the waiting queues would be too long. - WoT will not be integrated into Steam
