- there is no special MM mechanism to equalize the number of TD's in both team
- despite the fact the VK2801 and Aufklärungspanzer Panther have similiar turrets (stat-wise they are identical), those aren't shared (not a bug) as turrets are never shared between tanks, it's a game decision
- apparently, the 8.5 patch introduced longer waiting times between battles, it will be investigated
- apparently, if you quit a battle and change server while the tank is still locked, on 2nd server it will be available (and the battle result won't be counted in). After relogging though, the battle result will display properly (it won't disappear)
- the Indienpanzer mantlet is apparently very fragile
- M55's amount of 203mm ammo carried (historically 10 pieces) will most likely be increased in WoT
- the adrenaline rush perk mechanics have not been changed in 8.5

Sorry, no more for today, if there is another batch later on, I'll make a 2nd issue.

  2. As a premium user these new benefits are AWESOME if they are considering them for real. Even one of the 3 would be enough.

    1. Until I'll see (hear) the original interview, I will consider them made up. Such a thing would be insanely difficult to implement, the current MM would melt down.

      Delete
    2. Besides hard to implement, it's hard to justify first and foremost. Secondly WG just doesnt seem like the kind of people to give anyone what they want even if they pay for it, especially when they're such big advantages. You might even call them Pay To Win.

  3. PA benefits... i prefer 2x crew than that "benefit" that i will never use

  4. I really hope it's a bullshit, because this will be so much of a p2w... Even though I'm a premium acc user I don't want to have an advantage over normal players, this will kill this game...

    1. I generally follow World of Tanks news and there has been no word of anything as radical on RU forums. I think the poster either misinterpreted something or made it up.

      Delete
    2. I agree, I'm a premium account user myself. As much as I believe there should be some kind of buff to premium accounts considering it has lost much of its advantages, I don't believe these are the changes that should be done.

  5. Does someone of you wonderful peaple how much does Adrenaline rush increase the fire rate(when activated of course)?

  6. 1.Tier Limit
    2.Restrictions in vehicle numbers (hardcap on HTs,Arty,TDs...)
    3.Map choice (system similar to practice maps)

    Wow, that would actually be great!

    1. That would be the stupidest idea WG ever had... not that it would fuck up MM no it would also be the biggest P2W ever...

      Delete
    2. While option to "customize" battles to your taste with PA would be great, MM with +-20% of players demanding different restrictions will simply cook off. If anything I'd vote for "balanced random battle" unlocked for PA users - hardcapped arty to 3, balanced amount of tank types and tiers. Such defined limitation might be manageable.

  7. That one about premium account answer seems very direct and over informative so i doubt there was any misunderstanding, just somebody making things up either as a troll or maybe they thought they figured out a "cunning" way to make their suggestion..

  8. If information from interview with storm is true, it would be very nice, because matchmaking system is so horrible.

  9. Interview sounds like real bullshit but, hell, wouldn't it be nice.

  12. That isn't even a good troll. Utter bollocks. Totally unworkable fantasy.

    Frank - surprised you fell for that enough to publish it. A bit naive. Within a week it will be quoted back at Serb/Storm as an unfulfilled WG promise, which will at least be amusing.

    1. Well, I wrote it's utter crap.

    2. Well I'm glad you removed the detail, but think you should remove the link too. You are the MOST trusted source of impartial information on WoT, and I like you that way. That post was like "Aliens abduct mother of quintuplets with 48 DD melons" story, with you saying "I'm not entirely sure this is fake".
      Regards as ever.

  13. "apparently, the 8.5 patch introduced longer waiting times between battles, it will be investigated" what the fuck does this mean, more than 30 seconds to wait?

    1. 20-30 secs from what I tried

    2. No more that 10 sec for me (~15 battles played, Ru server)

  14. Of course the whole thread is a fake. This is obvious, even if you don't check the author's reputation.

    Beside the fact, that the devs rejected some of those 'smart ideas' over and over again, can you imagine the resulting queues?

    Remember the massive effect which only the arty hardcap had and than think of some thousand premium guys selecting maps, various hardcaps, etc. simultaneously.

    NO WAY!


    By the way: How would a meeting of 30 tier X heavies at Himmelsdorf be p2w?

    I would drive arty and set the following parameters: any open map, 0 LT, 0 MT TD, 1 SPG (me) and MM has to fill the gaps with some random HT.

    Again no p2w, but "pay to troll" at least. ;)

  15. no arty or 1 per team limit.... would be really awesome

    So, it would only display the battle result from the first server.. but it wouldn't count any earned experience, credits or costs of repair?

    1. No, it will count. But you have to restart to see it.

    2. Does this just have to do with the various Russian servers, or are they finally adding cross-server play?

    4. Is it a way to use x2/x3/x5 stars 2 times?

    5. Principially it can apply for EU too, as we now have 2 servers.

  17. - the Indienpanzer mantlet is apparently very fragile

    Is this intended, or will the devs fix or at least look into it?

    1. If people would have looked at RL schematics they would have realized this long time ago.

      Delete
    2. Their minds are full of lies, once they say there will be no different Armorqualities and now this.

      Its exactly the same, a fragile mantlet means a less quality armored part, just give it the standardvalue in milimetres in standard quality like all tanks have.

      But it is shown that they have the option to adjust the quality of armor, I bet there are several hidden poor quality values and a lot of tanks. -.- *conspiracy*

    3. Bojan: where can I find RL schematics of that mantlet?

    5. Anon, they are talking about thickness not armor quality.
      Thickness is only 90mm and pretty much vertical at the spots so at close range vs anyone that aims it will not protect vs anything.

      Teorge MP - post above, tnx to Kellomies. :) I am pretty sure I saw high res version also but can not remember where ATM.

  18. I seriously hope that the whole Storm thing is fake.
    If they are actually thinking of implementing ideas 1 and 2, I hope to god they won't. I don't think they're THAT stupid anyway.
    Not only would it cause matchmaking to meltdown and horrifyingly explode akin to a nuclear bomb, it would also shove all of the artillery and perhaps tank destroyers into non-premium player's battles, horribly ruining their games.

    5. A quick exercise of Google-fu turned up this:
      http://forum.worldoftanks.com/index.php?/topic/27887-indien-panzer-1954/

      So, yeah. Take it up with the German designers who apparently thought it unnecessary to have a turret front for the mantlet to overlap.
      Now what was it you lads wanted WG to do about that again...?

    3. W8 the whole interwiev or just that part? other things he said were: Gold ammo hasnt influenced the game that much, there will be new game mods; they are working on BOT and AFK player problemČ they are happy about cureent CW and just want to upgrade it a little bit ( the interface etc.)Čthey wont lower their gold prices; they said that for balancing issues the wait 3 months after a tank comes out and that they read forums to see what plaers think about new vehicles

      that is prety much it

    4. Ah okay, that's enough... thank you. I'd still prefer the whole thing scanned, just to be sure.

  24. "apparently, if you quit a battle and change server while the tank is still locked, on 2nd server it will be available (and the battle result won't be counted in). After relogging though, the battle result will display properly (it won't disappear)"

    I tried testing it but it didn't work for me; tank was locked in battle even though I switched servers.
    It's a nice "idea", but it's even better without it so no individual can exploit and abuse it...
