22.2.2013 - Part 2


- it's more likely the devs will remove the Soviet LL tanks (Churchill, Matilda, Valentine) than return the German premium ("captured French") ones (B2, H38)
- Storm suggests players use the Nvidia driver 306 series
- it's not possible to leave permanent track marks, the client wouldn't handle it
- the gold shells were not nerfed in order to richochet more (SS: that's a popular conspiracy theory)
- there will be no option implemented to change the look of your hangar just so (with one click) from festive to regular
- "a lot" will be changed in the camouflage system, SerB will tell "when the time is right"
- it's confirmed that the T8 German LT line will continue to the T9 Leopard prototype, much like the Chinese branch (XP-wise too)
- the T8 German LT properties will be "about the same as those of the AMX-13/90"
- Soviet medium premium tank will be apparently tier 7 and not 8 (SS: T-44A)
- there will be no free stuff for old players as a reward
- there will be no researchable modules for premium tanks
- it's possible the golden derp shell prices might rise ("we'll see")
- hangar details are set high "in order to look good", because performance is not that needed in it

  1. Does the T-44A get a 85mm gun?
    And the "Nah, we'll just remove the British." answer, is a good troll answer again :D

    1. Okay, just googled the T-44A.

  2. I am sorry, but could anybody tell me where does DB stands now? If it is going to be LT up to T8 and then two Leopards, what about DB?
    Thanks

    1. Looks like the DB won't lead to the Leopard anymore.

      I hope they'll convert the extra exp that we've been grinding on our DBs into free exp to help make up for it.

      I'm not holding my breath though...

    2. Unless they decide to still do the 2nd German medium line coming from the DB and have two paths (medium and light) to the Tier 9 Leopard prototype.

    3. Well, I doubt we will get any kind of refund, as it may lead somewhere in the future, so I guess DB will be dead end for now. Too bad.

    4. Sons of bitches! I grinded out 110k xp on the DB for the Leopard!

    5. They refunded us for the extra experience on the Ferdi (back when they first said the StuG E-100/JPzE-100 would be a tier 9 and later reversed their decision). It would be nice if they did the same with the DB. I have ~100k exp on it.

    6. There can be 2 lines leading to Leopard 1 - medium line with VK3002DB and light line.

      Delete
    7. You mean that T7 DB could lead directly to T9 Leo Prototype? Possible, yes.

      Delete
    8. No one said the DB wouldn't lead to the Leopard.

      Delete
    9. There will be 2 lines.The LT one and DB-->Indien Panzer-->Leopard proto-->Leopard I one (medium)

      Delete
    10. I am pretty sure one line will be something along the lines of:

      T6 - VK3002DBv1 T7 - VK3002DB T8 - Indienpanzer T9 Leo Prototype T10 - Leopard 1
      and the second one: T6 - VK2801 T7 - Aufklärungspanzer Panther T8 - RU251 and then it merges into T9 Leo Prototype

    11. To answer the first part of your question:

      The letter between the brackets indicates the manufacturer or designer.
      H - Henschel
      P - Porsche
      DB - Daimler Benz

    12. It's only party right:

      The small letters indicate country of origin:
      (t) Czech Republic
      (r) Russia
      (f) France

  4. "Dear devs, when you removed the B2 and H38 premium tanks from the German tech tree, you argued that it's necessery because the original vehicles will be in the French branch. Now there are the Soviet Churchills and Valentines, will you remove them too because we have the British branch?" A:"Nah, we'll just remove the British."

    ok, so its trollish answer, the real answer would go like, "people actually buy the ussr churchill and valetine so they are staying there cause we like money :) "

    1. Actually, people were buying the french captured tanks too...but whatever...russian bias...

      Delete
    2. People were buying Type 59 to and it was bringing them more money! The captured french tank were much like the Type, only tha they were in low tiers. That's why they were taken out, so the low tiers won't get flooded with them. I have the H38 and I would buy the B2 any time... A very well armored tank with a good gun and limited to tier 4 only, crazy! That's why I got the premium Valentine!

      So please stop with the russian bias all ready, I have all lines (except China) unlocked up to tier 7/8 and they're all balanced. German tanks are very good tanks.

      It's a company and it needs to make money. But it still keeps the balance on the server! If this was EA all games would have been Type 59 vs Type 59 by now. just look at NFS - World, that's a real pay-to-win game.

    3. I had the B2 for quite some time (won it in a competition, sold it). It's an amazing machine, I daresay it's a bit OP too, the fact it never meets anything above T4 means the only seriously dangerous enemy for it is the Hetzer, because it can twoshot it with a derp and the B2 gun cannot penetrate it from the front even with golden ammo, if the distance is bigger.

    2. SilentStalker, I read in the wiki today that the Churchill III is not longer available in the in game store, logged in and confirmed that is so.
      So he wasn't joking!
      Terrible news!
      Can you please ask him if it will go on sale on last time?
      In the gift shop perhaps.

  6. When he was asked about removing premium Churchill he said:
    "Nah, we'll just remove the British."
    What does that mean?
    Yes? No?

    1. Oh alright, thanks for fast answer, so fast I wrote you a follow up question without having time to read this first.

      I'm happy they won't scrap it.

      Cheers!
      Keep up the good work

  7. Could you please ask him a follow up question about the premium Churchill.

  8. NERF The tier 5 gold shells, don't up the price, people will still use it! NERF IT! 250 damage max! Thats what should be done!

    1. Ooooh, someone got one-shotted by an M4/PzIV? Here, have this jar of GTFO.

    2. Actually I would agree with him and I don't even really play tier 5. The game needs balancing, the patch that made premium shells for credits by far improved the gameplay on those very vehicles that were mentioned and vk2801. That tank got nerfed in a sense, so should they and what he mentioned is about right. If you like to constantly play with an M4, kick ass with that 350 damage and think ur pro, then you are a true noob.

  9. Conecrning British LL/French captured premium tanks:

    There is a bit of mistranslation here.
    Original poster of the question asked to re-introduce B2 and the answer meant "We wouldn't bring back B2, we better remove LEND-LEASE British premiums from shop".

    1. Awww, sounded funnier the way I translated it :) But you are right, I kinda skipped the last sentence of the question (was doing it really fast), that gave it a different meaning. Thank you. Will fix it.

  10. Which 85mm gun would the T44A get? The obvious one is bad enough in tier 6, in tier 7 it would make the T44A totally uncompetitive with other tanks as it's penetration, aim time and accuracy are totally rubbish. The question is will it mount the other 85mm gun available on the t-34-85? That gun since it was only in blueprints as far as I think, should be the gun that this tank would deserve. If that 85mm would be nerfed a little I could see the tank balanced in the game anyways.

    1. the 85mm that I think would be suitable is called D5T-85BM. I can understand that the T-44A would look much better and being OP compared to the t43 if it had that gun, so perhaps I could be wrong. Or perhaps the speed will be nerfed as the armour would be pretty tough for a tier 7 medium. Could anyone clarify anything for me about this, or at least give me their honest opinion into how you think the t44a will display itself?
