Source: http://world-of-ru.livejournal.com/2376657.html Hello everyone, Veider (one of the main WoT developers) appeared on a stream recently with a bunch of Russian players and answered some questions. Here’s a short summary from the link above - T-50 did recieve better MM spread in 0.8.7 - T-50-2 was an imbalanced moped - T57 Heavy and Foch 155 will be nerfed, but not too soon - the devs decided to nerf KV-1S, but are choosing how to do that - Maus and IS-7 are doing fine statistically, Tiger (H) will get a buff - Superpershing will not recieve a maneuverability and mobility buff - AMX50B might be buffed - Dickermax is fine, it won’t receieve bigger amount of ammo - TDs will not be nerfed when it comes to damage - the Soviet branch patch (8.8) will look like this: T6 – A-43 T7 – A-44 T8 – Object 416 T9 – see below T10 – Object 430 Explanation: Veider actually apparently said that tier 9 will be Object 140 (SS: as I predicted earlier), but it won’t – SerB denied that and said tier 9 will be some rear-turret variant of Object 430. As a result, 0.8.8 SOviet branch will most likely come without its top tiers. Object 430U might come as a heavy tank as the top of its own branch - There will be two prems: Chinese heavy 112 (still imbalanced, it’s being balanced currently) and Chinese medium T-34-3 - The T-44-122 will be a Soviet medium tank of tier 7 or 8, might come for supertesters in 0.8.8 - announced Japanese medium tank won’t come in 0.8.8 - second German TD line will start with Marder III on tier 3 or 4, Sturer Emil will have the 128mm gun, its top tiers will have casette autoloaders - E-10 TD won’t be implemented due to the devs not wanting to implement the lowering suspension mechanism - T-35 is already modelled, waiting for the multiturret mechanism - second branch of French TD’s is found, but it has been postponed, it has low priority for now - Chinese TD’s and arty branches are not yet found completely, works on them have not begun yet - prem arty will be of no higher tier than 5-6 - it’s possible there will be official WG mod portal - there will be no more “free” T34-style premium tanks - Havok physics: bending antennas, animations of house destruction and explosions, it’s pretty but it doesn’t affect gameplay, players will be able to enable it, if they have GTX-470 level or better graphics cards - it’s not 100 percent sure the Japanese will come this year - EU tree will come after the Japanese - big maps and teams (30vs30) are being worked on, but they face some serious issues - devs are actively working on new gameplay modes
