Hello everyone, last night, a stream took place on RU server – the topic was patch 9.6. Participating were various developers: Yuri “HuKoguM” Kuryavy, Aleksei “Inaki” Ilyin and Roman “Riot_Guy” Tabolin. It was not terribly informative, but here’s the transcript, courtesy of VK Ekspress. - the map Mines was imbalanced in favour of one base, it was slightly reworked in 9.6 with the specific goal of balancing the chance of both teams to capture the mountain - in a few patches, Prokhorovka will be reworked. The mountain will be moved and one other part will be opened - air strike and artillery strike SH consumables were implemented to “get rid of total defense tactic” - there are many new features planned for strongholds, including the bunker consumables - TD viewrange nerf is supposed to improve the battle dynamics and “teach TD’s to move” - not all developers finished the StuG missions yet, they have a lot of work - unlike Prokhorovka, the “island” on Fiery Salient was not changed - there’s a new “Wargaming TV” project on RU server, aimed at popularizing the “WG Stream” mod, there will be various e-sports streams on it and the mod will have a window, in which various bonus codes will appear - chat system update is just the first part of the “Chat 2.0″ system – in the future, it will be possible to chat amongst different Wargaming games, it will be also possible to chat with players outside of the game and other features
