- it looks like no matter what happens with the KV-1S 122mm gun, the 100mm S-34 will be added either way - the reason for KV-1S balance is that it stands out in the statistics. Not terribly, but it does. So in any case it is necessery to somehow nerf the 122mm KV-1S, but what exactly is still being discussed - the German unhistorical engines removal was the balance team’s idea, not SerB’s. - Q: “Why remove unhistorical German engines when most of the players don’t care about their historicity anyway, but it did cost a lot of XP to level them up and it causes distrust between players and WG?” A: “We don’t care about distrust, conspiracy theorists would make up a conspiracy theory anyway” - gold shells use has not increased compared to before, according to developers, the gold ammo for credits was a good thing to do - no skill MM will ever appear: “If you get more skilled, you will have the right to pwn” - SerB wants to remove the new sliders from the test, he already wrote Storm about it - will the Object 140 have better accuracy on the move because of the improved suspension? “Tests will show” - officially there will not be an option to actually select, which national voiceover goes to which tank, but the modmakers will do something like that SerB says - SerB on constant WoT rebalance: “There is stability only in grave – in the sense that there is not one “live” MMO without constant rebalance” - the GW E tracks are too heavy (40 tons, 30 tons for other E-100 vehicles), these 10 tons will be moved from the trucks to the hull, it has no influence on gameplay, so it has very low priority - whilem the T-44-85 will carry the S-54 gun, its ballistic properties are allegedly the same as the ones of S-53, eg. 120 pen. It’s possible that the T-44-85 will recieve special shells to improve the penetration - maps Moscow, Stalingrad, Minsk and Kharkov (city maps) are being developed for random battles too - national voiceover subtitles in other language are not planned
