Straight from Wargaming (confirmed info): map Simferopol will NOT come, at least not anytime soon. It was decided to mothball it. - women form no more than two percent of WoT playerbase - the main playerbase of WoT consists of men from 28 to 35 years - lately, the number of clans was increasing (for various reasons, from CW to the fact the people want a clantag) - the info above led to the development of Strongholds, as clanners needed some sort of “ecosystem” - developers are experimenting with Stronghold mode “bunkers”, created in some sort of building (their strength depends on the level of the building, the bunkers are being tested on Malinovka) - these bunkers and other SH consumables will be deployed by clan commander via a “tactical tablet” - current version of premium account/tank XP is temporary, premium tanks (or account, unclear) will be buffed further - Storm won’t participate in WoWs development “Tanks are 200 percent enough for me” - Stalingrad will be further fixed (players complained about the “small yards”, Storm added that the map is difficult as it is even without them) - PvE mode: “when it’s done it’s done” - 3-caliber rule will not be cancelled (“tell that to players shooting big guns at light tanks”) - a player proposed a theory, that some of the lags are caused on the client side by energy saving CPU functions (EIST, C-States, Turbo Boost). Storm: “Until you present us with evidence of these “mysterious” lags, it’s unlikely we will do anything”
