- according to Yuri Pasholok, there was a plan for an artillery vehicle based on the IS-4 chassis, but no details were discovered
- additional equipment/consumable slots are not planned, not even for gold
- according to SerB, things get sometimes forgotten in the patchnotes
- Firefighting skill does not enhance the speed of the automatic (golden) fire extinguisher
- new Chinese premium vehicles in near future? "If we decided to implement, I'll tell you"
- more models for destroyed tanks are planned
- gold consumables for silver confirmed (unknown ETA)
- no extra balancing for platoons planned (SS: for example matching of tiers, so both team has platoons with same tier vehicles)
- according to SerB, the most common battle result is somewhere between 15:7 and 15:9
- Soviets won't get a special branch of vehicles constructed by N.Astrov (SS: T-30,60,70,80,SU-76M, ASU-57, ASU-85, but also the ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" and others) because there wouldn't be enough vehicles for such a branch
- the frequency of spot checks will possibly be increased, but SerB states the algorithm is quite requiring server-wise
- SerB states there won't be an option for a player to see who added him as a friend (friendship in WoT is not symmetrical, eg. a player can add you but you don't have to add him). There will however be a function that will allow you to accept private chats only from people in your friendslist
- T-60 and T-50-2 are in two different branches, the introduction of T-60/70/80 will not influence the characteristics of T-50-2
- guns with muzzle brake reduce camouflage of the vehicle more than guns without it when shooting (they will demask you more)
- you get extra XP for base capture points you accumulated even if the battle ends by destroying the enemies, you get this extra XP for capturing enemy base even if the enemies capture your base first
- IS-7 will get a buff ("let's wait for test with details")
- there won't be any "East Germany" (DDR) premium tanks for now - but if there ever are, it will most likely be T-34/85 premium (T-55 is tier 9)
- the map in the Development section scheduled for 8.5 is the Pearl River

  3. - gold consumables for silver confirmed (unknown ETA)

    So after that every noob can have automatic fire extinguisher so lighting up tanks wouldn't mean much....and i wouldn't be surprised if they increase the criticals(module damage) bcs you now it would be your fault for not having big repair kit when it's available for credits....they are fucking up this game indeed!!!

    Oh and IS7 buff :facepalm:

    1. Wooohoo IS-7 buff - oh yeah oh yeah.

    2. pressing the manual fire extinguisher is always faster than the automatic one. that is if you are able to hit a button a little faster than a 80 year old with down syndrome. a skill that many wot-players don't possess though

      Delete
    3. Actually even a good player will at average take 2-3 ticks of fire damage where as automatic takes only the first. So Better stop using your scripts before WG notices them and bans you ( it is bannable offence just like autoclickers for clipped guns etc. )

      Delete
    4. a good player presses the button before the first tick. as i said, most players react like retards

      2-3 ticks.. lol

      Delete
    5. It's impossible to press button before 1st tick even if you spam it lol.

      Delete
    6. i consider myself a good player and i usually have 2 ticks, sometimes 3

      Delete
    7. It is a limit in the game, you always have atleast 2-3 ticks of fire, from what I have seen. the manual extinguisher takes some activation time also.

      Delete
  4. it will most likely be T-34/85 premium (T-55 is tier 9)

    mean "no way there will be T-55, just 34/85" right?

    1. yeah... nerf of one unnamed nation tanks... we all know which one it is... :D

      Delete
    2. Because they don't nerf anything else, right? All nations got silent nerfs in one patch or another. Butthurt German players everywhere...

  6. - T-60 and T-50-2 are in two different branches, the introduction of T-60/70/80 will not influence the characteristics of T-50-2

    So as I understand T-80 will be end-line tank or part of something else?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Personally I think T-80 (tier 4) will simply lead to T-50-2

      Delete
  7. Sure there isn't enough N.Astrov tanks to make a single branch for them, but I don't see why the devs couldn't add them to other lines that have similar statistics for their tiers. For example, here's the beginnings of a possible Soviet TD line:

    2: SU-45
    3: OSA-76
    4: ASU-57
    5: ASU-76
    6: ASU-85

    Slakrrrrrr

  8. IS-7, one of the most used tank in enerything will be buffed? FFS WHY??? Just the reason WHY???

    ReplyDelete
  9. Whats wrong with the IS-7? I played it in test server and its frontal armor is amazing.

    1. IS7 is slooooow, shoots sloooooowly, aim even sloooooooooower .. Its pretty much the most sluggish T10 tank, where it actually should be the fastest of them all ..

      Delete
    2. You sir, should be tortured by playing only german heavies. The world is full with imbeciles and you represent them well... IS7 is still a good tank, but it lost his importance in cw mainly after the T110 was introduced, i hope that buff will come with the general balance patch, otherwise it will be another case of russian bias.

  10. Could someone ask SerB why the pz1c was ninjanerfed?Now you cant reach the maxspeed of 79 km/h so easy as at the beginning.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hope they are planning to buff the lorraine 40t too, it's one of the worst tanks in-game by average winrate.

  12. so a muzzle brake is meant to provide more camo when shooting but in world of tanks muzzle brake provide less camo? are you sure you didnt get it wrong or is this some sort of retardation by WG?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, you get it backwards. Muzzle brake is not meant to provide more camo when shooting in real life, IRL muzzle brake is designed to reduce the gun recoil. A side effect is that it produces a very distinctive side flash, that is visible much more than regular shot without muzzle brake. Thus both in real life and in WoT, muzzle brake makes the shots more demasking.

      Delete
    2. Muzzle Brakes reduce recoil but produce huge dustclouds in the process. Nothing wrong here.

    3. Looks like was some sort of retardation in your side, bud.

  13. Hmm, SerB or someone else 'forgot' to write the ELC pivot nerf in the patch notes.

  14. Maybe its just hitpoint buff to IS-7

    1. Man this tank dont need a buff it needs a REAL NERF!!!

      Delete
    2. It doesn't need a nerf. Don't get all excited. The IS-7 is just fine as it is. I think they should just leave it alone. People obviously think the tank is good as a lot of people play it.

      -Ridge

      Delete
    3. It's not "fine". It pretty much sucks, thanks to bad acc, aimtime, mediocre mobility and UFP that gets penetrated without issues by all other T10 heavies BUT IS-7 - because IS-7 has around 40% chance to bounce, because it has the worst gold pene at T10 too.

  15. I didn't get it. We will get East German tanks?

    ReplyDelete
  16. IS7 is second worst tier 10 atm after maus. And its used in CW only in africa pr0 clans...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Finaly, IS-7 needed this buff badly, this poor tank was silent nerfed with each update and now is close to useless. Super bad accuracy, half of hits are dings, bad aiming time, bad pene... laughtable gold ammo.

    ReplyDelete
  18. ^^ Sound like Mause and no buff plans for it. But russian must have....we will see

    ReplyDelete
  19. Lol... IS7 will get a buff but IS4 (witch actualy needs it more) wont get? IS4 is to sluggish to have such a crap front armor with only 140mm at a crap angle...

    ReplyDelete
  20. All of you complain about the IS-7 or the IS-4 being so sluggish... What about the Maus and the E-100 have you guys even tried playing with such a huge firebox glacias? Your engine gets damaged almost every game and you're the slowest tanks on the battlefield... I mean sure the E-100 has a humongous gun, but you have to run gold in it to even make it worth your time taking it into battle.
