For the Record: Press Conference for Patch 9.0
Hello everyone, the following press conference (with Sergei “SerB” Burkatovsky and Anton “Evilly” Pankov) happened during the weekend Kubinka event. For those who don’t know: a special event for RU players was organized by Wargaming at the Kubinka museum. There were competitions, talks of historical tech and meeting with developers. Probably some other cool stuff as well. Thanks to LJ user “world_of_cactus” for posting it. * * Now, I hope I understood the stuff correctly, because somehow, it’s kinda difficult to understand SerB (in this case I fully admit I could be totally off, it’s hard to understand over the noise) Inside: - WG 80 million users worldwide - patch 9.0 lays down the ground for future updates (by introducing the HD standard) - connection of WG to museums and such, because “we remember our history and are proud of it” At this point SerB starts to talk about the past of WoT, how they started, improved graphics over time etc. - this year, they want to introduce two new modes, one is historical battles and the other is the “fortifications mode” - “fortifications” mode is not meant for only hardcore players like CW (SerB described how CW is hardcore) (from another video) - not all tanks will have viable (equally worth) alternative hulls There was something about Havok as well. Can’t understand it.
