- the German LT branch will merge into the medium Leopard-1 one (RU251 - T9 Leo prototype)
- it's pointless to ask if T110E5 statistics are "historical", since that tank existend only on paper
- regarding the Chinese tanks' characteristics, all the data came from the Chinese partners, they come from the development documents on those tanks
- artillery vehicles were unarmored even in real life, the weight of the gun forced the developers to remove armor because of the weight
- there won't be a special voice command that the loader would say when the gun is loaded, SerB thinks the breech clanking is enough
- SerB on capturing bases: capture points are accumulated on each tank in the base circle separately, 1 point per second (maximum 3 per second in total, eg. 3 tanks) - if there are 4 tanks in the circle, only 3/4 "collect" capture points, if 5 then 3/5 etc.
- devs prefer open maps, because they load the server and client less, but city maps (such as "Ruinberg") are also in development (SS: I heard a rumor 8.5 will bring 2 maps - one winter city map (possibly Stalingrad) á la Himmelsdorf, one an open "Mexico" map)
- no player-designed maps option in forseeable future
- it's possible the devs will introduce a hangar option that you will be able to see the effective armor thickness on various places of your tank, but not soon
- no customizable decals/inscriptions on tanks
- Q: "Why can't we change the colors of the tanks the way you can change the color of the planes in WoWp?" A: "So we don't have pink tanks"
- SerB personally can affect events, resp. tanks sold during them, for example he specifically was against further sale of Type 59
- the VK3002DB top engine might be unlocked for the tank following after it, "tests will show"

Japanese time:

Q: There is talk on European forum about 20t STA LT variant. To be honest, it feels like an attempt to bring a LT8 out of thin air, but I'll ask: do you have info on anything like that?
A: LT based on STA is not planned. We have no info on 20ton version.

Q: The same goes for Chi-Ru medium tank. Also a fake? (earlier this name was attributed to a twin-barreled TD)
A: We don't have any reliable sources on Chi-Ru. Maybe it's a fake, maybe there was such a project.

Q: How did the Chi-To prototype differ from the planned mass-produced version? Which version will be introduced?
A: Most likely it differend by having a cast turret - such turrets were developed for Chi-To, Chi-Nu and Chi-Ri, but the work was not finished.

Q: What kind of premium Japanese tank will there be in advance before the whole Japanese branch, if any?
A: Won't tell for now. The branch is still worked on, so the tanks can be shifted here and there.

Q: If the upper limit of the O-I weight is 140t, what is the lower limit? Do you believe there was a significantly smaller 100t or less version?
A: We don't have any data on O-I variants lighter than 100 tons.

Q: Do these naval SPG's (one, two) count as TD's in the game?
A: Most likely yes, TD's.

- it's not planned to allow removing the tracks from Christie tanks (SS: for those who don't know, Christie suspension allowed the tank to drive on the roads without tracks)

  2. if people want voice warnings upon a shell loaded in the gun, they can use the Modern War Sound Mod v.3.1 (American version) or AGQJ Sound Mod :)

  4. "regarding the Chinese tanks' characteristics, all the data came from the Chinese partners, they come from the development documents on those tanks"

    Not to offend anyone, but given the megalomania of communist countries I would not trust the sources!

    I wonder what they do at WG all day, every important feature has an answer like this: Not soon, later, when is done, maybe, etc.

  5. "devs prefer open maps, because they load the server and client less" They are pretty cheap if they care this much about the server load... Yeah I know more server costs more money to run, but this is just bad... If we had the same ammount of city maps as open ones, there would be far less arty, and this hard cap wouldn't even be needed... And those arties who are remaning would some some skilled ones

    1. And Maus would be much more useful... SOme for E-100/JgPz E-100 and other slow tanks.

  6. Q: "Why can't we change the colors of the tanks the way you can change the color of the planes in WoWp?" A: "So we don't have pink tanks"

    Why is the color pink being discriminated?

  7. So, in connection with your previous post, it is confirmed the 3002DB will lead to a new branch, which will also be accessible through the light tanks. Tanks a million for you work. I appreciate it greatly. :)

  8. "SerB personally can affect events, resp. tanks sold during them, for example he specifically was against further sale of Type 59"

    trololo

    It won't stop people from asking though. Glad I bought mine when WG first starting to offer gift packages. Those are some pretty awesome deals to be had. Almost 15~20% discount when you do the math.
