The responding person was Evilly, Russian chief community manager. You’re going to like this… Here goes: - players from 80 countries play WoT - King of Jordan plays on EU server - Evilly states that while the M40/43 shell is flying, he has time to have a cup of tea - 0.8.7 will come by the end of July or beginning of August and will bring British arty and the Chinese premium 112 - 0.8.8 will bring 2nd branch of Soviet medium tanks with Object 430 - Superpershing will recieve a new gun (current M26 Pershing’s top gun) and its maneuverability will be improved - current IS-7 ingame armor is thicker than it was in real life, but it will stay as it is - tanks don’t roll over on their backs, because the game is unplayable that way - 2nd German TD line will be after 0.8.8, it’s top vehicles will be the Waffentragers, tier 10 will have a 4-round autoloader (SS: I WAS RIGHT! Damn, I really was :) 4 rounds and not 3… that means 128mm FlaK 45 I think, expect amazing accuracy and brutal penetration, but low alpha) - until Fall 2013, the economic model in the game (prices etc.) won’t be reworked - Type 59 was removed from shops because there were too many of them and because there will be another tier 8 Chinese premium MT - multiturret mechanism won’t come anytime soon, there are higher priority tasks - hourly premium account is not profitable from economic point of view - no details are known, but there WILL be special tier 10 tanks (like M60, VK7201 and Object) available for random battle players - in the future, Germans will shoot more accurately on extreme distances - in the future, all 3 of WG projects will be somewhat compatible, but not as much as those of Gaijin - Evilly doesn’t like the AMX40, but likes to own in E50M - this year will also bring a premium medium French tank - Chinese tree has a TD branch upcoming, either by the end of 2013, or in 2014 - it is yet not decided whether Sturmtiger will come as TD or artillery, if it becomes an arty, it will have a very short range, it won’t come in 2013 - there might come an event analogical to the White Tiger event (SS: as a partnership advertisement of the Russian White Tiger movie, a special Tiger P was implemented into the game and in a special mode it was fighting against 15 T-34/85′s) - Clanwars implemented into the client will come either until the end of the year, or in 1st quarter of 2014 - roaming test is planned for autumn, it will be released around New year - vehicle velocity doesn’t depend on full/empty ammo rack - there will be an option to switch whole chat off - game engine won’t change, but it will be improved - national crew voices will come - during WG’s birthday event, players will recieve a free lowtier tank - Soviet premium medium tank (early T-44 with 85mm gun) will come this Fall - WG is working on an official mod portal - there will be massive changes in graphics – weather and night battles will come, as well as turrets being ripped off by explosions and pieces of armor flying off when hit - garage battles are really complicated to do in randoms, so they will be done in CW’s/companies, possibly this year - historical battles won’t come in 2013, there are problems in balance - Type 59 will never return to the shops, ever - skill MM will never come to randoms - 30 vs 30 battles have been postponed, the stress on client computers is way too big - AMX ELC didn’t recieve a fully rotating turret, because it’s not a turret and the head of the crewman is sticking out - minefields will come to clanwars, they will work as consumables - Xbox and PC WoT won’t be unified - no premium T9-T10 tanks - combat missions aka “miniquests”, awarding top 3 damage dealers of the team, will come apparently again during the WG birthday event
