- Storm himself in’t happy with the 0.8.6 sounds. Some sounds will be reworked or moved back to the 0.8.5 version in 0.8.7 (namely the tank being hit and explosion sounds). - the T-44 will have the sound of shifting gears and various engine RPM sound on various speed implemented, based on real life T-44 sounds - apparently, the Russian weekend event with double XP/income for top players is VERY popular - Wargaming’s statistical data on how many people played/play arty won’t be disclosed - Type 59 won’t be rebalanced (like the Superpershing) - the fact whether arty gains enough XP per battle in 0.8.6 will be known after 2 weeks or so (when first statistic results come in) - Storm states that it is not true that the 0.8.6 brought reduced performance (FPS) for a lot of people. In fact, he says it’s the other way around, 0.8.6 increased FPS for a lot of people (SS: including me), if you have lower FPS in 0.8.6, Storm suggests to write a support ticket and ask there. Otherwise the complaints on FPS drops are normal after each patch. - upcoming patches will bring new game features and optimalisations - Pz38H (“Micromaus”) had its MM weight reduced - general light tank rebalance is not planned - it’s possible destructible sand hills (SS: not sure what exactly is meant here, but I don’t think it’s the terrain dunes, more like small sand terrain features) will be introduced, but not soon - dynamic amount of complaints per day (SS: the more you play, the more times you can report someone in game) will not be introduced for now
