- Q: "In 8.5, the Konisch gun damage for regular and gold shells was made the same, is it realistic?" A: "As soon as you provide us with the real life data on Konisch gun damage (measured in hitpoints), we will make it realistic"
- when smoke (as cover) is introduced, the cover mechanism of various objects (haystacks, walls etc.) won't be changed (they won't be added as camoproviding objects), there are too many of them
- various tanks have various tracks hitbox models, these models do not depend on the type of the suspension (torsion bars, Christie etc.), rather than on its shape
- you do recieve credits for caused module damage
- the archievements for the XP class badges (3rd Class to Master) for arty won't be revised
- trophy (captured) tanks will not be made for now
- some branches have regular vehicle - arty transfers, it is not yet clear what will happen to those transfers when the arty is stretched to tier 10, apparently they won't disappear all
- KV-1S to SU-152 transfer won't be implemented
- the Chinese TD and arty branches are not yet prepared, let alone modelled, no details will be told now
- shell (trajectory, impact) system won't be modified, it would get too complicated
- 0.8.5 test 2 will have a few minor bugs fixed
- Ferdinand won't be separated into the Elefant and Ferdinand tanks, because those two tanks are practically identical
- T-62A was the "ugly duckling" tank, the developers didn't want to implement it, but had to because they didn't find any proper alternative.
- the escort mode was tested but the devs decided it's not working and decided to scrap it
- WG cooperation with (implementation of) Raidcall, Teamspeak or Mumble? "No comment"
- Matilda 1 and Char 2C plans? "If there are any, I will tell"
- IS-3, IS-8 and 110 won't get a frontal armor buff on the spot where lower plate and upper plate meet
- it's not yet clear whether the Chinese TD branch will containt SU-100 and SU-152 copies
- Q (by a player named Mishkas88): "Will there be any changes in German tank properties in 8.5 test 2?" A: "No. And that 88 means you were born in 1988, right?" :)
- there are many factors as to what premium tanks will be implemented and what not
- apparently, the Chinese TD's are a mess - there is enough material to make two branches of them, but the devs are still thinking how to make it all fit together
- somewhere in the next few patches there will be a sound re-work, but music re-work is unlikely
- new anti-aliasing is scheduled for middle future (not as bad as distant - usually refers to 6 months - 1 year or so)
- there will be a new WG video, possibly explaining the shell penetration trajectory inside tank
- it's possible Korean War will appear in historical battles, Vietnam War most likely won't
- in the future, the sound engine will be updated
- visibility range restriction removal - doesn't have high priority, definitely won't come in 2013-2014
- HE shell splash has the shape of a sphere, not a circle
- the weird 2nd anniversary garage (SS: more like gay-rage) won't be optional
- T-70 will be made a 2-man vehicle before the 0.8.5 goes out

    I guess they should first implement any histoical battles, right? We WANT them!

    1. yeah u want them, but still they will be a total fail, cause i cant think of a player that wants to have to play stock t34 vs. stock tiger 1. Where the tiger 1 player just can roflstomp them while the t34 player has to rely on randoom ppl just to get a chance of dealing dmg...

      The should first implement garage battles. Those dont need someone who wants to play the victim for others..

  2. Do we really need a messed up sound rework by WG... we already have the Historical gun sounds and gnomefathers engine sounds.

    WG got outplayed hard by modders.

  3. Wow no further changes to the new german meds, even though people complained alot about retarded Leo Proto 105mm rof and Leo 1 too.

    We cannot let german tanks be OP can we WG? the US TD line was released as OP, their med line too, british TD line released as OP too.

    It's clear now we wont get JACKSHIT improvements for the Proto Leo and Leo 1. We will most probably get a super nerfed Indien panzer. Way to go ya german haters!

    1. Ever heard about "maybe it doesn't fit your play style" sentence?

      A tank like Leo is sure welcomed in my garage.. especially when I imagine what can become of it with all the gadgets and s... mmm.. mmmm :)

      Delete
    2. Yea maybe you are right. I had high expectations we will get some decent german meds. I have T-62A and batchat. The Leo's dont have shit over them. I can rape a Leo even with my T-54.

      Ahhh wth i will just have to understand we will never get some unique decent german tanks.

    3. I really feel your pain, it must be terrible having a gun with the same penetration as the best heavy tanks on a medium and yet only the same RoF as the other L7 armed T9 tank. With such terrible DPM it's no wonder the cent 7/1 only has a 53% WR on the EU server, it's so obviously underpowered - and a tank with the same DPM but considerably more mobile is totally worthless as a medium of course. End russian bias now!

    4. @ above me better add sarcasm tags or otherwise they will believe u...

      to opener: Maybe the tank is not the Problem ;)

    5. Seriously, I have no idea what are people whining about this time.
      I thought LeoPTA is a crap in the first few games Im driving it on the test server. Then I tried to use the stock 9cm, it works way better.
      And the Leo1, everythings are good, nothing to complain at all IMO. It is not just the best German tank ever, but also very nice tier10 med.

    6. Not sure if trolling or just stupid...
      But hey try to provide realistic data that vk2801 would not have been capped to 60 km/ max ...

    7. dafuq this blog is fucked up... that last post should have gone below this: http://ftr-wot.blogspot.de/2013/04/1042013.html?showComment=1365615369027#c6360614993582806032

  4. "the weird 2nd anniversary garage (SS: more like gay-rage) won't be optional"

    No chance getting rid of that eye-cancerous, FPS-dropping, ugly, childish crap?

    Now seriously tho, I tried copy-pastaing the old "hangar_premium.pkg" renamed as "hangar_premium_12apr.pkg" but my game just keeps freezing... Any possible workaround?

  5. - Ferdinand won't be separated into the Elefant and Ferdinand tanks, because those two tanks are practically identical

    This Question already asked many - many times...

    - T-62A was the "ugly duckling" tank, the developers didn't want to implement it, but had to because they didn't find any proper alternative.

    Why Not Object 907 instead?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Because it was a sorta competing design with T54. Object was discontinued because T54 entered mass production. WG used their logic and didn't put T54's brother as it's research child.

  6. - the archievements for the XP class badges (3rd Class to Master) for arty won't be revised

    ?? Why were they asking about this?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. In connection with arty nerfs.

      Delete
    2. Why would they be any different to other tanks, e.g. top 1% of XP earner in last weekm top 5% etc?

  7. And as soon as WG can provide realistic data that VK2801 had 60 km/h speed, we will not bitch about it!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. well, in Panzer Tracts 20-1 and 20-2 the only references to VK 28.01 speed indicate "could maintain a sustained speed of 30 km/hr", so maybe it could be getting another nerf :P

      Delete
    2. So what kind of data about VK 28.01 speed can provide you?

      Delete
    3. the one I provided above, which is AFAIK the one WG is using.

      Delete
    4. note that my nerf reference is tongue in cheek.

      other vehicules referred to in those books that have 30 km/h as a "everywhere" speed have a max speed of 60 km/h in good roads.

      Delete
    5. Exactly my point, if it is true that VK28.01 had only 30 km/h
      it means clearly this tank is not a scout!
      and WG classified is as a scout meaning you can fight even tier 10
      second since they nerff it, i can't do shit with it!
      Too slow to evade shots
      Too slow to catch a scout

      Tried playing as a medium
      Fail, no armor, poor canon!
      (And yeah the canons are good if you hit soft spots!)

      So this tank should be again a tier V light tank and not a scout
      I am upset cause when it was good I even bought premium camo!

  8. "- KV-1S to SU-152 transfer won't be implemented"

    transfer, as in tech tree link?

    (not that I think it should be done. as it is, from 0.8.5 the soviets will have 2 crossover points from the tank branches to the TD branch, same as the US and German trees. now, a crossover point for the French would be something interesting, IMO.)

  9. - Q: "In 8.5, the Konisch gun damage for regular and gold shells was made the same, is it realistic?"

    Whoever this is can take realism and shove it where the sun does not shine. This and rof buff to 7,5cm l70 on VK3002(D) are some of best changes in the patch.

  10. Konisch buff makes already good tank even better, as it makes L/70 pretty much obsolete except pure RoF for permatracking things.

    [dream]can we get Konisch for other tanks? JgPzIV, VK30.02D?[/dream]

  11. "And that 88 means you were born in 1988, right?"

    And what is this supposed to mean?

    1. "88" is commonly used by Neo-Nazis and white supremacists as an abbreviation for "Heil Hitler."

    3. Thank you for clearing this up.
      (Even though after reading about it on wiki that 88 nazi-thing to me seems just like some bullshit as much as "666" and "13" things)

      Thanks again tho. ;)
