Storm answers from the closed betatester section of the forum - there’s no ETA on “matchmaker 3.0″ right now – there’s a lot of research to be done - new motion physics: medium future (SS: that usually means 3-6 months) - Storm considers MM and balancing fixes to have higher priority than Havok introduction - Type 62 will not be buffed in 9.6 - the HD E-100 model was made according to Panzer Tracts and the weld thickness was copied from there. But in the end, developers decided not to do it and leave it as it was (SS: historically, the weld parts were apparently weaker than the ingame model, I don’t know from head, would have to check) - developers considered improving the gold to credit conversion ratio to make this conversion more attractive, but decided not to do it in the end - Storm confirms that there will be no more limited MM tanks, this decision is connected “to gameplay and to matchmaker issues” - the game is being optimized gradually every patch - Havok development has nothing to do with motion physics, it’s different people doing it - new tree render (“speedtree”) will come as a part of the new render system WG is working on That’s all for today. Storm wrote that he’d be busy through the weekend and wouldn’t have much time to answer questions.
