For the Record: 20.6.2013
- the devs are studying the issue with the MM (SS: arty being balanced against heavies) - VK4502B won’t be buffed, SerB thinks it’s doing fine - the aim circle won’t apparently be possible to turn on and off - aim circle is calculated on the server, but the shaking effect is doone by the client (hence it can be turned off) – it’s possible everything will be done server-side at one point, but it’s not certain - the airplanes collision model on the airport map is fine, you can shoot under its wings – it doesn’t count as a “box” - SerB doesn’t think that the arty is the most difficult type of vehicle to play for the newbies - SerB also states that a lot less people than previously will level up the arty branches after 0.8.6 – and that’s a good thing - When asked when gold actually counts as currency law-wise, SerB answers: “Without going into legal details, gold is an ingame valuable, obtainable for real life money. It has no relation to the gold metal, except for the name.” - regarding roaming: if you have an account on other server, when roaming is introduced, it will NOT be possible to unify the account on one server with the one on another (SS: in other words, if you are American, but played some battles on SEA server before making a new account on US server, you won’t be able to transfer the tanks from SEA to US account) - Q: “Guns too accurate in 0.8.6?” A: “How terrible!” - the delay between the actual detection and the point when the lamp lights up (Sixth sense perk) won’t be reduced - one of the roaming idea variants is that when a Russian account plays on EU server, the player will have _RU suffix (SS: I have a bad feeling about that…) - SerB likes comet, but he liked Cromwell even more, he played on it even after he unlocked the Comet - the reduced shell spread is a final decision, it won’t be removed - SerB talking about the arty-is-underpowered whiners: “Right now, the arty noobs will be flushed out. After that happens, there will be whine that arty is OP again.” - there will be no “switch one tier 10 for another tier 10″ possibility implemented - other territories than Asia will also be made as maps in the future And, a bonus question by a very “special” Russian player: Postal_a42: Will there be any special event for 22nd June? Storm: Don’t you feel ashamed asking such stuff?
