- premium TD’s will not get a viewrange nerf - developers are working on better anti-aliasing as a part of the next big update of the graphics system in the game - Storm states that reworked (larger) Murovanka ended up doing nicely (a good map) - removing the standard render from the game would not save any client space - WG will consider buffing 121 (Chinese tier 10) - AMX-30 branch will have “two vehicles” (SS: well, not really, I mean there will be a bunch of lowtiers up to tier 5 IIRC, then a gap, and then AMX-30 Prototype and AMX-30 coming from AMX-13/90) - when Havok comes, the level of allowed destruction will be the same as it is now - T28 (US TD) will be changed from the fake it is to a real project (early T95 variant from NARA archives) - the WT E-100 replacement is a real project and it is not on E-100 hull, it will “fit the Waffentr├Ąger concept” - a mechanism for players to easily find a platoon mate (“platoon finder”) to play with them is planned for this year - animated models (SS: as in, ventilators turning and such) are not tied to Havok - FV215b (120) was introduced into the game because “earlier, we considered Chieftain to be too modern. Now we don’t anymore.” - developers are working on Dx11 support, it wasn’t scrapped - there are two issues with the bushes, causing them to flicker in sniper mode. Only one will be fixed in 9.6 - XP for “tanking” will most likely come in 9.7 - some graphical bugs in various models (like a tank having too short a barrel) will have to wait until the tank is reworked to HD - Storm is aware of the issue where players get 4-5 maps all the time during one gaming session (too much map repeating). He states that it will not be fixed in near future, WG will think what to do with it. It’s a question of MM and server load - Q: “Which high pen shells will get nerf?” A: “All those, that we consider need it” - dynamic characteristics of tanks in a hangar should come this year, so should a new garage filter (SS: odd, didn’t SerB say those were scrapped or something?) - Storm states that the IM’s are skill-based, because “skilled players complete them faster than the unskilled ones” - Storm confirms that the feature where players would be able to disable maps they dont want to play was cancelled - Italians will definitely not come this year - AMX-13/90 will not be buffed - 7/42 format will not return to team battles - it’s possible alternative IM’s will be introduced - no plans to nerf SU-152 - LT’s will not get a penetration buff - no plans to allow players to convert free XP to crew XP - no plans to introduce multiple types of shells in one autoloader clip - Storm states that the reason why no more limited MM premium tanks will be introduced is that “it’s good for the future of WoT” - VK4502 Ausf.B (tier 9) will be switched to Maus prototype this year - it’s possible penalties for “unsportsmanlike behavior” will be increased - Object 907 won’t have the M-62 gun, because “it’s buffed enough as it is” - regarding tier 10 medium tank penetration nerf: “final solution of this issue was not yet decided” - some IM’s have incorrect descriptions, some will be fixed in 9.6 - regarding new Matchmaker 3.0 – there is an idea to completely scrap the battletier system, but so far, no comment. It will not come anytime soon. - Storm confirms: the probability of you getting a certain map is different for each tier (SS: as in, if you are getting the same one, switch tiers) - Storm states that the changes on Winterberg (compared to Ruinberg) were not announced specifically, because Winterberg doesn’t count as a copy map, but as a new map - IS-6 maximum speed is historical - S-Tank (Strv 103) will appear in the game - Swedish will most likely have a separate tree, but it will NOT come this year - AMX-12t and AMX-13/75 might be buffed in following patches, they will be investigated - there are no plans to buff Super Pershing for now - Naydin medal bug will be fixed in 9.6 - Maus will not be buffed, neither will IS-7 - T95 will not be removed from the game - 1vs1 pvp mode will not be implemented - Storm states that the decision to remove limited MM premiums from the shop was not yet taken as final - Smolensk map size is 1200 x 1200
