- these factors are taken into account when rebalancing a vehicle, according to Storm: “winrate, popularity on its tier, skill of players playing it (its distribution), average XP, average damage, average damage stopped by armor – many various indicators” – later, Storm however adds that a vehicle won’t be nerfed based solely on the fact that it is very popular (SS: earlier, Storm stated however that a very popular vehicle is practically always an indicator of that vehicle being imbalanced) - it’s possible the Ardennes HB that is getting removed in 9.1 will return, but “no promises” - how the accuracy will be nerfed is not decided yet, developers are running experiments - T-44-85 has been “postponed for a long time” - tank models will be reworked also in standard client, not just in HD content, the “HD” concerns only texture resolution - Havok will work in both SD and HD clients - increase of the number of old render settings is not planned - the “Sturer Emil” (short version of the) name has been cut down because it doesn’t fit into the interface - Tiger nerf? “We will talk about Tiger nerf once it is published and not now” - players with “calculators” (very poor computers) form a bit less than 50 percent of WoT audience - it’s possible that the alleged new Nvidia SLI fix doesn’t work for all SLI configurations, Storm states that the only thing they can do is wait for a fix from Nvidia - the nasty bug, where you see your friends, who are actually online, as offline, will be fixed in 9.1 (SS: *waves at Akcido*) - Storm states, that it’s possible WoT will reach the amount of details as in Spin Tires, but only when the network possibilities allow it, which will be in 5-7 years - on future plans in WoT: “We have to rework a lot of content. Without losing the game performance.” - alleged Windstorm lag issue is not known to the developers, there are no proofs - Storm, when asked how many people got their Super Pershing during the event: “I don’t think I can disclose that info” (he adds that he has nothing to do with such events)
