- currently, Soviet tier 7 and 8 light tanks are not planned
- Object 120 will not appear in World of Tanks
- AI controlled tanks? "no comment"
- Clanwars are still considered to be in beta stage, that's the reason for the often CW breaks
- Q: "How come the AT-15A is such a poor farming machine and SU-100Y is much better?" A: "I won't give you any farming guarantees" (SS: which means - whenever a premium vehicle comes out, wait for a while before you buy it, according to SerB the fact it's a premium tank does not apparently mean it's going to be a viable moneymaker - statistically-wise, AT-15A seems to make about as much credits due to its low alpha as a regular T7 vehicle)
- regarding the (still existing) bug where when you buy a golden shells for silver and when you fire all of them, the game starts buying new ones for gold - "don't use automatic ammo reload"
- premium tanks profitability is set so, that in the hands of a statistically average player, a (for example) tier 8 premium tank has to earn more credits on everage than a tier 7 regular tank, there are no exceptions to this rule
- when calculating the profitability (SS: from the previous answer), premium account is not taken into consideration
- the gold price in the shop is proportional to the tank profitability, but the corellation between the two is not linear
- there will be a new tutorial (part 2) where the modules etc. will be described
- the same turret on different hulls can have different rotating speeds (SS: concerns the KV series)
- Storm considers these railway models in the new Live Oaks normal (SS: thanks god Storm doesn't work on the real railway)
- Dragon Ridge and Serene Coast will not return in 0.8.5
- this year, there will be winter maps, jungle maps - most likely not
- the idea that each nation could buy a special "test" crew, that acts as 100 percent for all the tanks, but doesn't gain any silver or XP was not considered
- the devs "did not promise" to return more settings to the old render (SS: not a long time ago, the devs mentioned they won't develop the old render anymore)
- Storm will investigate possible error in JpZ E-100 armor (E-100 has 130mm armor above tracks while the Jpz has only 120mm, despite the fact the hull is supposed to be identical)
- pushing enemies to their death (for example into a hole, water etc.) will count as a kill, this will be implemented in one of the following patches

  1. ""Regarding the (still existing) bug where when you buy a golden shells for silver and when you fire all of them, the game starts buying new ones for gold - "don't use automatic ammo reload" ".

    Typical WG explanation. Instead of fixing the bug they say do not use it, do not play. As you wish WG, War Thunder is waiting!

  2. SS, do you know about the "DW (Durchbruchwagen)" (Tier 5 Heay), which COULD also arrive with 8.5?

    Thanks.

    1. Well, I know it was confirmed by Storm to arrive at some point, but I don't know whether it will arrive directly in 8.5. Nothing too exciting anyway, it's basically a Panzer IV with worse engine and historically worse armor.

    2. Then it could be used as a tier 3 heavy :D

    3. Historical DW is T3-4 material

  5. Got the AT 15A yesterday, someone could had mention earlier found out it makes as much money as AT 7

    few reasons are the fault of not earning enough credits!

    1 you are slow and hardly get to fight the enemy
    2 low dmg
    3 low HP even if you defend you wont live for long
    as experience players shoot soft spots, and noobs shoot gold
    you take 2-3 hits and you are dead!

    1. Here's a tip for your future Premium tank purchases:

      Try them first on the Test server.

      Denii from EU server

    1. Well, that's the LL branch. Not in 2013 I think.

    2. Thanks for the info. I thought they were going to be prems though. They've changed their minds and made a LL/comenwealth branch in the tree?

  7. ""Storm will investigate possible error in JpZ E-100 armor (E-100 has 130mm armor above tracks while the Jpz has only 120mm, despite the fact the hull is supposed to be identical)""

    -Sure, investigate why such a fail tank designed by WG is not as good as they claim to be. Storm, ex Krupp leader designer will enter in blueprints to see where is the JP100 weakspot....no, wait! he just have to look at the model in their game and see the stats THEY put.

    OMG...investigate, how can they think the rest of the people be so naive and they the masterminds of the world, it just slip from my mind.
