- various “which tank is the most popular” polls have no influence on tank balancing - Q: “Will the rework of tanks to HD models be made based on historical battles or popularity amongst players” A: “One does not interfere with the other” - apparently, more things (such as destroyed tank models) are not scheduled to be pre-loaded into memory during map loading, because it would pointlessly clog the computer’s memory, while the “microfreezes” (when a tank gets destroyed, the game lags a bit loading the destroyed model) are bearable - ingame accuracy of a gun does not influence the chance of the shell to fly towards the aim circle center - accuracy ONLY influences the size of the aim circle, that means that for example a gun with 0.36 acc and another at 0.46 acc, if the aim circle of both guns is of the same size (SS: when for example the first gun moves with the turret), the chances to hit for both guns are the same - 25 percent penetration RNG will NOT be replaced by lower number, because a) it reflects real life randomness better than say 5 percent and b) in such a case, well-armored tanks would be too difficult to deal with - apparently, according to Storm, it will be needed to nerf arty soon again - Storm mentioned that some least popular maps could be removed altogether from the game, Windstorm will not be amongst them - league system for random battles will not be introduced - gold ammo for credits will not be removed - developers are slowly starting to deal with tier 2-5 balance (SS: goodbye, sweet T18) - retraining crews to different roles (SS: as in, radiomen to drivers for example) will come, “it’s done when it’s done” - apparently, Storm thinks that after the introduction of the new modes, noone will play companies anymore - 2014 will bring 3 new tier 8 medium premiums (SS: we’ll see :) ) - An option to re-buy once bought premium tanks for credits? Storm: “We’ll have to think about that” - the plans for new game modes, unveiled in today’s video, apply for this year - it’s not planned to implement the option to select, which HD content you want and which you don’t - the feature to get your unique/reward/premium tanks back is tested on US server, it will be available on RU, EU and ASIA as well
