- T34 (US premium tank) will be “reworked”, when it gets turned to HD - position on recoilless guns will most likely not change - Chinese tanks will not be changed (SS: the player was suggesting that the British are getting changes because they are unpopular) - height of ingame T-54 is correct - +/-1MM will not be introduced, “it would not be interesting to play” - 50 percent of players play with improved render, 50 percent use the original old render - the change of crew role (SS: radioman to driver for example) will come soon - the “70 people develop WoT” number is without testers, with testers it’s cca 100 - Storm explains the “T-54 Model 1945″ premium Soviet tier 8 medium tank: “The decision has already been made and the models are already being created. We didn’t want to have a large number of T-44′s – if we are to make many clones anyway, T-54 fits the role more as the most mass-produced tank in history” - choosing your tanks in team battles depending on the map? “This year I hope” - in the past, developers mentioned they want to add extra features for premium account to compensate for some premium features lost, such as the platoons. In the end this did not happened, because “we didn’t figure out nothing suitable” - the combat UI is still using ActionScript 2 version - Not much time left until AFK’ers, standing on the base and not moving will get no XP from battle - Q: “How come it often happens that I get the same map three times in a row out of 5 battles?” A: “We can’t do anything about it.” - Ruinberg on fire had its chance to drop reduced, but other maps’ chances to drop will not be changed for now - maps with only one mode (only random battle, without encounter and assault versions) will also not have their chances to drop changed - IS-6 to be reworked? “If there are any issues with the model, we will fix them when the model is reworked to HD” - it’s not yet known whether the HESH mechanism will be reworked, but it’s possible - equipment and perks/skills are scheduled for rework in the future - larger ignore/friend list? “Wait for 2.0″ - the game taking too much CPU/GPU resources in hangar? “I can’t say anything about that” - developers are (as an anti-TD measure apparently) considering reducing the viewrange of all the tanks, apart from light tanks - regarding the company mode: “We have to completely rework the company searching mechanism, based on the one used in team battles” - the 5 second friends list timeout (SS: not sure what this concerns) is a “DDOS protection” - Q: “I suggest reworking the camo like this – if a tank was spotted and it did not move anywhere, it will remain spotted.” A: “That’s roughly what we are going to do” - the tier 6 KV-85 will keep the 122mm D-25 gun (SS: or D-2-5, identical gun, different breech – anyway the KV-85 has really bad depression, -2 or so) - Storm on what will appear in 9.3: “RU251, LTTB, T-54 Light, reworked Chaffee, T37, Walker Bulldog, T49, new KV-1S, KV-85″ - XP for tanking? “When it’s done it’s done” - KV-1S will split into KV-1S (tier 5) and KV-85 (tier 6) - 150mm E-100 HE shells will not be buffed - 37mm Sh-37 gold shells will not be buffed - Sturmtiger was basically scrapped for now, because it’s not possible to balance it in the game - mid-tier artillery will not be buffed - GWE buff? “If it stands out statistically” - no plans to ban noobmeter - composite armor, active/reactive armor, smoothbores and guided missiles will not appear in the game - FV215b will be switched for Chieftain because “Chieftain was a real existing tank, that’s the main reason.” - Challenger (MBT) prototype is too modern for WoT, same goes for T-64 - it’s possible that Chinese tier 10 heavy will be reworked, “but no guarantees” - quick (one button) transfer of equipment from tank to tank? “Maybe, but it has low priority” - Storm does openly state the FV215b (120) is made up (Storm: “SerB’s construction bureau”) - no further AMX50B buff is planned for now - there are no plans to completely rework the interface - no current plans to rework player statistics - 1×1 and 3×3 “arena” mode will not come (Storm: “it has practically zero audience”) - official WG rating in the battle will not be displayed (“everyone will use XVM anyway”)
