Thanks to Maiorboltach for the writeup. Just a short Q&A from Aleksandr Ivanov, executive producer of World of Tanks - platoon mechanism will be reworked in 2015. Basically, you will be able to invite players into platoons straight in the battle. - Dragon’s Ridge will not return, in fact other “uncomfortable” maps will be removed. New maps will be added instead to replace them. - regarding viewrange nerf – so far, it’s just an experiment, too early to tell any details. More details should be known around spring 2015. - dynamic tank characteristics in hangar (SS: replacing gun changes the hangar stats) will most likely not be implemented due to “certain difficulties”
