- suspension damage has no influence on "passability thru terrain" hiden parameter
- there will be no alternative German heavy "Lowe"branch
- SerB states that the rumors about secret tank mobility nerfs are just rumors
- entire crew might be killed by a single penetrating (!) HE hit, HE shells that don't penetrate are subjected to the "no more than half a crew killed by one shot" rule
- shells fired in 3rd person view do not fly closer to the aim circle center than in sniper mode (A: "Go play tetris")
- no actual info about the Expert medal (SS: a guy complained that his team, while hunting for the medal, abandoned defensive positions and started chasing the poor target 113 around and lost, SerB answers: "Stop with the 'mommy, why are we such retards' questions, we aren't the ones you should ask")
- the ability of one tank to push another is a complicated parameter, consisting of engine power, suspension quality, weight of the tank and terrain slope - these forces combine and get compared to the motion vector, it's not simply explained
- dynamic parameters in garage don't have high priority
- the bug where very thin fences slow down the tank a lot will be fixed
- subcaliber rounds do have normalisation (the same as AP rounds), normalisation is calculated after it is decided by the engine whether the shell ricochets or not (so it cannot influence stuff like the "auto-ricochet" rule)

  1. - there will be no alternative German heavy "Lowe"branch

    Damnit, I was hoping for one.

    1. Yes, it's a pity. Ah well, you'll get more made-up fake German tanks instead

    2. Yeah, if just WG could add Waffentragers finally - that'd be great.

    3. So there's currently nothing to be after the 3002DB? Or did I miss something?

    4. Yea, Woras is right. We want the Waffentragers, but first comes the DB line. :D

    5. Dude i really really hope they dont mess Waffenträger series up.

      Acutally we already have one "Waffentrager" in the Brit Tree (Church. "Gun Carrier" = Eng for Waffenträger)

      Now do me the favour and take the strengths of this tank and the weaknesses.

      Let me make a prediction for WT series:
      - slow and no turningspeed!
      - HUGE!
      - Driving Artyoneshots with no chance of finding cover

      + One hell of a DPM and pen

      somparing to the Church Gun carrier, you may say it certainly has a good gun, but ive never seen one performing well, bc if a group targets him hes dead in a matter of seconds.

      That is what i predict for german WT series, too.

    6. Well, the german WT line (for now) contains the "Sturer Emil" (20km/h, huge, -15° gun depression, 12,8cm PaK[less pen then the one on the JT]) and the Pz IV Sfl. (simply a Pz IV with a 88 Flak on top). Thease the two I want.

      The real "Waffentrager" in the line will be fast (around 30km/h) and !turreted!. So a bit different then the Churche GC. (I hope they are going to be good too.) ;)

    7. Basically they are rear mounted firing compartment - including Marder 3, Nashorn and Sturer Emil (Hummel goes into that family too), and WT series which we have no fucking idea what will it be - probably turreted but how much armor or speed they have - unknown.

    2. The "Neubaufahrzeug" Will become a premium tank. It's in the tech tree as "NbFz".

    3. Christ! The Grammar in that article is atrocious! It's like somebody just ran something through Google Translate!

  3. jesus...still no clarification about VK3002DB case??...imho the light-line to indie-panzer make no sence...why are there other high tier light then? VKDB must lead to some tier 8, no way that will stay in current status...

    1. DBs gonna lead to the Indien Panzer. Serb was just being a stupid troll.

      Hell Im sure WG has not been 100% clear on that just to piss people off.

      Delete
    2. Nope, no definitive answer. But yes, I believe the 3002DB will lead to it too. Anything else would cause another epic shitstorm.

    3. How about not caring about people and doing something which will make people spend gold on retraining and dropping skills?

      US tree anyone, Chinese?

      Why should they care about Germans, did they ever?

      They will just mash those light in between mediums and the other way around just to teach people a lesson not to grind tanks before official open test.

  4. "suspension damage has no influence on "passability thru terrain" hiden parameter"

    I would swear it had!

    1. ofc it had!

    2. And I'll be a 3rd anon who says it has an influence, just checked it on my WZ-131 - yellow tracks make it turn worse and bleed speed, I didn't check the acceleration alone.

      Delete
    3. And I'll be the 1st non-anon to say it doesn't do anything to me. From lights to mediums to heavies to tds to arty, I have not gotten slower or anything different from having the track get damaged.

  5. suspension damage influence the acceleration of the tank

  6. That's kind-of a shame about the no Krupp line of heavy tanks ... Kankou figured that was a possibility a few days ago with all the different Löwe variations out there. Even if that "Fail-Lowe" was a fake, that chassis should allow them to release the Leichter Lowe as either a tier 7 premie or part of a new branch.

  7. Hi. I hate SS because he is too arogant, but I still decide to share something from 8.5
