- SerB states that (SS: unlike the accuracy), the penetration value within the 25 percent from average is distributed randomly (SS: in other words, with average pen 100, you have the same chance to get 78 pen and 100 pen, the average value is not advantaged anyhow)
- Q: "Everybody knows that fire in a tank is the worst thing that can happen! For the crew and the vehicle too! But I noticed that the fire in game doesn't hurt the crew! Do you plan to finish/fix this in the future?" A: "Everybody knows that stupid questions in this topic is the worst thing that can happen! For those who answer the questions and have to wade thru sea of stupid questions too. But I noticed that most of those who ask don't read previous answers and post stupid questions! Do you plan to finish/fix this in the future?" (SS: the answer is - the fire doesnt kill crewmembers because the vehicle would become too crippled and unplayable after a fire)
- Q: "I wonder why enemies, that are 650-700m away from me are not displayed?" A: "I wonder why despite the fact I hand out bans to those who ask stupid questions doesn't the stream of them dry out? Maybe I hand out too few bans?"
- Brothers in Arms and Adrenaline Rush effects are completely sufficient according to SerB
- it's possible that the changes to the camo system will be substantial
- only one player per battle can get the Sniper medal
- ARL V39 TD has one visibility checkpoint on the top of the miniturret on the hull - if it peeks above a bush, the vehicle will get spotted
- apparently, a new shell (penetration) model is being worked on, it will be a complex thing, the "gold T5 derp" issue will be handled as a part of it
- there will be patches 0.8.5, 0.8.6, 0.8.7, 0.8.8, 0.8.9 before 0.9.0 (eg. the camo re-work is a 2014 thing)
- Storm will tell soon, how the "new model of the game" will look (SS: unsure what this means, but something big is coming)

    - Just awesome xD

    p.s. Hope that big thing won't turn out to be a big flop.

    1. The real question about fire is why is always the LAST thing to be noticied by the crew.

      Delete
    2. THATS a good question and should be addressed as soon as possible. Artillery hits, "tracks are damaged. the driver is down. they damaged our fuel tank. Oh and by the way, the tank is on fir*boom*". This REALLY sucks.

    3. Russians had notoriously poisonous chemicals in their extinguishers way until the 70's so if you had to choose between your pants being on fire or having your lungs burn it's not so odd anymore.

  3. Tier 5 derp problems like the hordes of derping M4s and PzIVs so definately need to be fixed as soon as possible. Lots of them in every battle now all with well known clan names padding their stats clubbing seals does nothing for the credibility or enjoyment of the game. They need to fix it before the game loses people as a result.

    1. I dont know were youve been but playing tier 5 isnt classed as "stat padding or Seal Clubbing" for a while now, why because alot of people including me use tier 5s to make money and also because they face their own tier or higher and by tier 5 you should know somewhat, what your doing, if you dont well thats their own fault.

      The Devs have themselves to blame for the tier 5 derp problem by not balancing it in the first place, so dont have a moan at people for using the most powerful thing they can get, its a normal reaction unfortunately, hence the french, op when first released everyone wanted one because u could ass rape almost every other tank, its the same with derp guns, more or less easy kills.

    2. The HE shells should get a pen nerf, HEATs already bounce very often so they're fine as they are (I know they don't really bounce, just do 0dmg hits, but the crew says it's a ricochet so whatever). And I'm not crying as someone getting owned by tier 5 derps, I say it as someone who used to own with them a couple of weeks ago on M4. My friend did 11 kills with M4 in one round, I did 7 or 8. You mow down KV-1's and KV-1s'es like nothing with 2 shots to kill, even without gold shells, that's why I think a small pen nerf on HE would balance it out. I even found the German derp to be a viable weapon when I used it on Tier 6 VK3006H for some time, contrary to the American one on Tier 6 Jumbo which wouldn't work for me, for some reason. Just my 2 cents.

  5. Is it just me or does Serb become more of an dipshit each time he opens his mouth? Someday he will mysteriously disappear up his own asshole.

  6. "Storm will tell soon, how the "new model of the game" will look (SS: unsure what this means, but something big is coming)"

    Probably Havok physics. (At least that's what I think)

    3. Helicopters. I really miss helicopters in this game.

  7. today we hear that russians have tons off money in cyprus banks, and we hear they will have to pay taxes, now i see serb is in his mood again.

    i wonder if this is a coincidense? lol

    on a more serious note, looks like we can still expect lots of big news comming, especialy the new shell mechanics. would this be for all shells or just one type of shells? if one type i bet its hesh or heat

  8. "SerB states that (SS: unlike the accuracy), the penetration value within the 25 percent from average is distributed randomly (SS: in other words, with average pen 100, you have the same chance to get 78 pen and 100 pen, the average value is not advantaged anyhow)"

    Think this is translated wrong. Assuming it is distributed randomly and uniformly, if average=100 then the lowest pen value=75 and highest pen value=125.

    1. *rolls eyes* I took the 78 just as an example obviously. The point is, 75, 78, 100, 115, 125... they all have the same chance to "drop".

      Delete
    2. So as I understand there is no gaussian/nromal distribution, compared to the spread of the shells.

  9. Storm will tell soon, how the "new model of the game" will look (SS: unsure what this means, but something big is coming)

    Is this somehow related to new and better tank models?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes, that's planned. But I think they also plan to change the penetration mechanics.

      Delete
    2. Tank/game rework related to Havok engine... sounds plausible. Chunks of tanks being blasted off by bigger shells "lol someone shot my ass off"

      Delete
    3. Might be interesting to see people panicking when their first shot tears off the tumor on top of T34/E5/other tank and they no longer have an easily exploitable weakpoint to shoot.

  10. I'm curious what will be after 0.9.9 , maybe 0.10.0?

    1. I wouldn't be surprised at all XD

    2. Maybe 1.0; 1.1?

  11. What we are expecting: larger maps, better MM, more game modes, better sounds (guns, engines etc), improved spotting and tons of other stuff that would make the game better.

    What we will probably get: new overpriced camos, shitty small maps where half of the actuall map is water, more copy-paste tanks and other bs that is just there to make money instead of improving gameplay.

  12. - apparently, a new shell (penetration) model is being worked on, it will be a complex thing, the "gold T5 derp" issue will be handled as a part of it
    _______________________________
    Why i have the feeling that this is actually just a nerf for derp guns(PzIV,M4 etc) but they're trying to mask it as so called "new penetration mode"

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. well I damn hope its a nerf because derp guns are just pure "cheating" since the gold-ammo-credits thingy [ At least the small caliber ones.. not KV-2 etc ]

      Delete
    2. Umad? 105mm isnt a small caliber ffs... nothing wrong with it, its their fault when someone wants to pay for prem ammo so thats the thing but still with it its not OP.

      KV-2 Derpgun on Tier6 is OP of 130mm of the SU-100Y on T6 ridiculous just ridiculous, but thats ok cause these are russian tanks... and dont give the germans an adequate tank like Brummbär on T7 with 150mm or 150mm version of Hetzer.

      Delete
    3. Yeah KV-2 is OP with 20sec reloaded and good aim and aiming time. I know it hurt when he takes you 900damage. But dont cry.

  13. New model of the game? This sounds like financial model of the game...
    WIch in turn sounds like more pay2win is coming. Brace yourselves

    1. Where on Earth do you get that idea from? They already announced that they love Sprem, and that they're going to make gold consumables go the same way, because making it free2play makes them MORE money (from premium sales).

      The big re-make is the camo system for sure, plus the Havok physics graphics plus garage/historical battles plus re-done shell mechanics plus I'm guessing the new replay system and maybe some other client changes.

    2. Dont forget the mainstay of WoT advancements: MORE TANKS

  14. "- there will be patches 0.8.5, 0.8.6, 0.8.7, 0.8.8, 0.8.9 before 0.9.0"

    Isn't this an obvious troll answer? He's just listing all the numbers between current 0.8.4 and 0.9.0. What is there to indicate all those versions have been tasked and scheduled to the dev team?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not a troll answer. There are some people who assume 0.9.0 might come after 0.8.7 or so

      Delete
    2. Blegh. Five updates still before 9.0. This means 5 updates were they are just adding tanks instead of properly improving the game. 8.0 was awesome, after that they only added tanks. I want 9.0!

      Delete
  15. Can the F**** I**** be anymore arrogant: "A: "I wonder why despite the fact I hand out bans to those who ask stupid questions doesn't the stream of them dry out? Maybe I hand out too few bans?", I mean SerB, what a mor******, and a master in customer relations, I will not pay WG anymore, SS could forward this.

    ReplyDelete
  16. So we're getting bigger maps, bigger teams, and a change to the camo and penetration mechanics. That means I'm going to have to learn the game all over again, and I haven't finished learning the current one.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Q: SerB, why do you keep reading and answering to stupid questions when you hate them so much?
    A: Actually I love such questions because it gives me an opportunity to spill my bitterness, frustration, anger and all out bad character over someone without having to fear any consequences!
