Source: http://maiorboltach.livejournal.com/25395.html Hello everyone, Russian server also had a “Clanwars stream” and Maiorboltach from the world-of-ru LJ community was kind enough to write a summary of what was said in the stream with Alexei “Orc” Plotnikov. There is some interesting new info, worth checking out. Some points I left out due to them being relevant only for RU server. - only 15k T23E3 tanks will be handed out on RU server (because “World on Fire” is a short event) - T23E3 has a premium tank status. According to orc, it has really good rate of fire and not bad penetration, T-34-85 gets killed really fast, it’s something like E-25 - T23E3 will be obtainable for non-CW players, it will be either sold, or will be a reward for some event - there was an idea that top 30k (on RU server) players, who don’t recieve the T23E3 would recieve credits equal to their fame points count, but it was decided not to do it - Chat 2.0 is still being worked on, the option to read whispers/chat with friends inside battle will come in very distant future - WG now has a system, that automatically detects rigged fights - there is no ETA on future game events (SS: as in the Super Pershing one probably), but they are in plans already - a completely new tournament format is being developed currently - Clanwars 2.0 are being worked on, a lot of resources were allocated to the Stronghold mode, but the work on CW 2.0 did not stop - Stronghold mode will be available for clans with at least 15-20 players. You will be able to build various types of buildings, which will bring various bonuses (XP and credit gains). You will be able to enter a mode resembling something like company battles (called “mining”), in which you will “mine resources”, which you will then use to build the stronghold buildings. In the next iteration of Stronghold mode, clans will be able to “mine” to one another and loot each other’s base. - WG has a special department, tasked with working to keep (and make return to the game) the WoT target group of people. It works very well. - the option of using mercenaries in CW is still being worked on, there is no final decision yet, probably won’t be implemented - the Stronghold mode will cause a boost in company game format battles, because it will be used for the “mining” etc. – therefore even less players will use current company mode and it’s possible the mode the way it is now will be removed and incorporated into the Stronghold mode. - currently, WG is focusing on the Stronghold feedback. This feedback will influence the decision over many features, planned for Clanwars. - map “Mountain Pass” will be reworked - Wargaming apparently DOES listen to any normally formulated petitions, especially petitions from clans and clans alliances, these are being especially paid attention to - SerB is currently strongly focusing on Lesta studio (World of Warships) - players can influence, what territory on CW map uses which ingame map, IF the players can provide data and argue correctly - many statistics (for example “top 15 players by points of fame in clan”) are not possible to create and implement officially, because the amount of data would break the database - Observer mode for CW/random battles will not be implemented, because it would cause exploits to appear - Type 59 will NEVER return to the shop - Clanwars between servers (RU/EU/US) will NOT be combined, the biggest problem are the time zones From second stream (“Galaxy TV”) - 3rd Campaign was postponed, because May holidays, vacations are starting etc. and too few people who otherwise would play CW are playing - Strongholds will appear either in 9.1 or 9.2 - T23E3 can be equipped with a stabilizer - Komarin map is being reworked - there is an idea to combine historical battles and CW, but the main focus lies on the Stronghold mode - there is a plan for a CW event, based on Spanish Civil War - currently it is being decided, which tank will be the reward tank for 3rd Campaign: T95E6 or Object 907 - 3rd Campaign will come after Stronghold mode is implemented - it will not be possible to completely destroy enemy stronghold - WG is specifically against he statistics module in XVM (“noobmeter”), not against its other (minimap etc.) features - 3rd Campaign will most likely work like the current “World on Fire” event – points will be awarded only for fighting - WG is developing special Clan Rating, that will be based on Strongholds - Clanwars 2.0 will not come anytime soon - WG employees’ accounts cannot pick maps they want to play, like Press Accounts can - if a nazi clan is banned because of its name, its nickname/tag is automatically blocked so noone can use it again - WG clan will not participate in Stronghold mode
