Nothing much today (don’t forget to change your password on EU and US server for free 300 gold). If you are however interested, there are two things I wanted to link. First is yet another Chieftain’s Hatch article, this time about the Sherman PR from 1942. Some interesting read. Second is an article by Listy on Overlord’s blog about the British WB1 tank. Never heard of it before? No worries, noone has. I kept teasing Listy about this project for months because it’s his “white whale” – there are scraps of information, but noone knows what it really looked like. Good luck finding more though :) In two days, Storm is planning a big stream, where he will allegedly (according to RU staff) talk about future features. In Russian of course, but that’s what FTR is here for. Should be interesting (topics will cover for example Havok, gold ammo etc.). He will also be playing WoT on Ru server, of course. Damn, he should come to EU using roaming. That should be fun! - no plans to unify gold and premium account in WoT and WoT Blitz - T110E5 will apparenty not be nerfed - Q: “What will there be in WoT 2?” A: “WoT 2.0? What is that? :)” - during ammorack explosions, remaining shells are not “used up” – you don’t have to buy them all back even though they all explode. This is so the players don’t suffer. - it’s completely possible that new premium tanks will come soon - it’s completely possible some of the removed maps (Port, Dragon Ridge) will return to the game after they are reworked - there will be no “zombie mode” in WoT, it was only mentioned as April 1st joke - crew visual models are not planned - M6A2E1 buff confirmed (it loses its top battletier, thus getting limited MM) - three man platoons are not planned - the AFK and leaver punishment system will come in 9.3 – the only thing that was removed was the suicider punishment system, which needs to breworked - there will be new tier 8 premium tanks - “many new and nice, interesting things” will come in stronghold mode - the XP bonus for “tanking” will not appear in 9.3, it will be reworked and it will come later - Q: “Storm, what is the fate of 7/68 mode? What about team battles for tier 10?” A: “7/52″ (SS: take it how you will) - apparently, according to Storm, the XVM minimap with tank names option mod is very resource-requiring - on very weak computers (“calculators”), XVM can cause up to 30 percent FPS drop - about half of WoT players have very weak computers
