Friday 13th, spooky! - individual missions slightly changed the popularity ratios of each vehicle class, but it’s too early to say whether these changes are permanent - it’s possible that one of the “Prokhorovkas” (Prokhorovka/Fiery Salient) will be removed (the one likely to stay is Fiery Salient) - Storm confirms that the shells are disappearing after the penetration of the track in some cases, this is not something that needs to be fixed according to him - after one player complained, Storm checked some bushes in the Airport and Monastery maps and yes, some are bugged (wrong camo values), it will be fixed in the future - it’s possible that all the limited MM premiums will be removed from the premium shop and ingame store: “Anything can happen. But I won’t confirm anything.” - HE shell mechanism won’t be reworked to become more complicated as it is now - HE shell buff? “If we buff tank HE shells, we will also have to buff artillery HE shells and that’s not what we want to do.” - second KV-1S turret was modelled after archive drawings, they are not publicly available on the internet (WG dug them up) - Wargaming does not want to transfer parts of server code to the client (to reduce the data transfer load), because it would potentially allow players to create their own servers based on WG code - the spotting bug video from earlier today was noticed by Wargaming, it will be investigated - Mantle and Dx12 support in the future? “I cannot say” - Storm is not aware of an alleged “IS-6″ project with rear turret and 152mm gun - Storm states that 9.6 freezes (lags) whenever an enemy tank is spotted (model is loaded) are caused by slow HDD loading - Leopard 1 in HD will come “relatively soon”, it will NOT have the late turret with improved armor (Storm states that the A1 version with anti-HEAT side armor is just heavier without any significant armor improvement, so it wouldn’t be better anyway). There are simply no plans to give Leopard 1 more armor. - Storm openly admits: the repetitiveness of maps (getting the same map over and over again) is an existing problem, WG will work on it - historical battles will not bring “hardcore mode” without hitpoints - WZ-120 and 113 tanks have the same gun but with different properties – this will be fixed during their rework to HD (no details about the fix though)
