Please note that the last article about 9.3 changes was not correct in one point. Birch Gun 25pdr did NOT get removed, its internal ID just changed. - the “XP for damage, blocked by armor” will not be reworked to incorporate damage done to tracks, because “tracks are not ‘tanking’” - M8A1 in the game is not called “Scott”, because Scott is the name for M8 HMC and not for M8A1 (which is generally not correct as well, the correct version would be M8 GMC). The turret that was removed from M5 Stuart in 9.3 is now in the game as stock M8A1 turret, turning the M8A1 into M8 HMC (“Scott”) and M8 GMC hybrid. - T92 Light Tank does not have an autoloader and will not have it in the game (SS: if it gets implemented) - T92 Light Tank will not come in 9.4 and it’s not a tier 8 light tank (SS: as in, it’s lower), it will not come this year - the Firefly branch will be a mix of LT, MT and TD’s (LT – M4A2, M3 Honey MT – Lee, Sherman, Firefly TD – the rest) - WG is aware that some vehicles do not have correct crew setups, this however will not be fixed for now - there is a potential candidate for AFK Panther replacement, “now there is the ‘small’ matter of actually replacing it” (SS: the candidate is SP.I.C.) - there are various ways of how to rework the German tree globally, but that won’t happen for the obvious reasons of such changes being too big - the alternative hulls will (as previously announced) most likely be tied to suspension changes - there will more likely be no more than two turrets and suspensions/hulls per tank, as there is no real need for more - the climbing ability of tanks in new physics will most likely be limited as it is now on maps in order not to break gameplay - new tank sounds: “when it’s done it’s done” - tanks turning on their roofs are not Havok-dependant - T-54 and T-62 burn when hit from the front not because of transmission, but because of fuel tanks - different e-sports formats will still be tested, it cannot be said which one will be final for now - there will be new tutorial for newbies - Japanese heavies will come sooner than TD’s - multiturret mechanism: “Noone needs it. We will make it at some point when we have no other things to do.” - Roaming mechanism is not finished yet anyway, it has low priority - Storm confirms that SerB was wrong when he hinted at implementing the Sturmtiger line. Sturmtiger will not come. - Tiger II in HD: “when it’s done it’s done” - developers are considering getting rid of trollplatoons (limiting tier differences in platoons) - a player proposed that the consumable price for new players on tier 1-4 would be cheaper than for experienced players (“sealclubbers”) – Storm states it’s not possible - regarding buffs of some premium tanks (Matilda IV and its low firepower) – “when there are issues with actual tanks, we will rework them” - developers do not consider KV-1S to be overpowered, the KV-1S/KV-85 split is not a nerf, but a “rebalancing” - T-150 will not be rebalanced, for now at least - rebalance of skills and perks will not come anytime soon - it’s possible that the top tier Italian medium tank will be the Leopard with autoloader
