6.1.2013 part 2

- the devs don't see the limited barracks capacity as an issue, as according to them, "the crews live mainly in tanks and go to the barracks only when they don't have a vehicle to get into"
- regarding the barracks slots for gold: the developers don't see the barracks as something "needed", it only makes the life easier and therefore the additional slots cost gold - if the player doesn't want to keep the tankers in the barracks, he doesn't have to.
- according to SerB, the ring at the end of the top gun (M68) of the M48 Patton is not a muzzle brake, SerB thinks it could be a counterweight, or some sort gas protection, it's historically accurate according to WG references
- the D-10T2S gun will be used on other vehicles (namely the Soviet second med line) "if necessery"
- Russian server (or rather, client) is supposed to get new crew voiceovers (by some known Russian actors)
- there will be no compensations, if an account banned by a moderator is cleared on appeal
- as for the question that being chatbanned does prevent you from playing well, as you can't communicate in battle: "don't break the rules"
- XVM isn't likely to get banned (SerB appeals to common sense while using it though)
- it is not planned to make the ramming damage bigger for situations, where a very heavy target crashes into a very light target with a small difference of speeds only (SS: imagine Maus crushing the Loltraktor - slooooooooooowly....)
- micro-freezes and micro-lags: SerB advises to vacuumclean your computer and to solve overheating issues if you have any. Or to check your internet provider, those are the most common reasons
- the weight of the GW E is fine
- devs don't consider the physics introduction rushed
- new soundtrack will be added continuously to the game
- Komarin and Swamp again confirmed to return, when it's done it's done
- Object 271 ("Kondensator") won't be introduced
- there will be some changes to the trees, eventually
- current maps will be changed in the future (SS: refers to the overhaul plan as the rework of the maps for new render is viewed as a failure)
- when there is a discount on premium shells, their use rises approximately by one round per battle on average
- the camo bonus difference of trees with leaves and "dead" trees without leaves is "considerable"
- Soviet and German trophy (captured) tanks in 2013? "unlikely"
- there are plans to reintroduce the post-game statistics for replays, not soon
- the fact Superpershing has very low gun HP is not a bug
- Panzer IIJ is not expected to appear in any shop
- destructable bridges are unlikely to appear, as it would seriously annoy the players
- British Lend Lease branch in 2013? "there is a chance, but not guaranteed"
- Improved Sherman (Sherman with a 90mm M3 gun installed) - so far there are no plans
- There MIGHT be tier 10 light tanks, in the distant future
- FCM50t stats: "if it stands out, we'll take action"
- damage statistics for each shot are not planned
- Q: "how will the multiturret mechanism look like" A: "It will look the way the technical limitations will allow it"


  1. - There will be tier 10 light tanks

    jesus wtf

  2. SS,ill use some for
    Hope you dont mind.

  3. - There will be tier 10 light tanks

    Damn it why, it's fine the way it is.

  4. We already have tier 10 lights, check all the Bats driving around :)

  5. Guys, keep in mind that the info about the lights is totally preliminary ("they aren't developed for now"). It'll be years.
