4.4.2013

- SerB is now (or was recently) in Chicago
- WG doesn't have any info for now on one-turret 76mm Soviet Object 050 heavy tank, based on T-100 and about the IS project with cca 100mm armor and 152mm gun from 1940
- SerB states that the current German and Soviet branches are cca 70 percent complete
- the reason for various 100mm guns with different alpha are different shells used
- it's possible EU tree will have local modifications of foreign tanks (such as the local modifications of T-34, T-54, Shermans...)
- there was no Soviet self-propelled 11in (279mm) howitzer
- game mode without bases (just a deatchmatch) is not planned
- there will be no "compensation" for removed transitions from Henschel tanks to VK3002DB
- there might be a Maus buff upcoming, just a rumor tho (and not in 0.8.5)
- Tetrarch will not appear in any game stores
- each shell has individually set module damage secret parameter, that roughly equates to the caliber of the shell, but the caliber directly is not involved in the damage calculation
- Storm states that in recent years the quality of gameplay of newbies didn't get worse, it's roughly the same
- there are planned visual changes for the hangars (both premium and regular)
- Storm says there have been no changes in the earning potential of premium tanks...
- one Leopard will be added to the Hunter medal/archievement
- the MM will change so both teams have roughly the same amount of light tanks (so it doesn't happen that one doesn't have any and the other does)
- T92 elevation - 0 to 45 degrees
- the fate of premium artillery vehicles in connection with the T10 arty will be told "when the time is right"
- the "konisch" German gun does so high damage due to the shell's kinetical energy
- devs never considered it viable to change one regular game server into an additional test server, it's complicated

    1. how much patches usualy to buf a vehicle? (if they would buff ofc) 2-3? or is there no clear line in wg intentions about speeds of buff/nerf?

      Delete
    2. Well from what i've experience since i've starting from beta days it is 3 patches max before buff/nerf takes place.
      I've seen it done in 2 patches too. And i'm under correction they only look for people with W/R of 45-55%.
      So if you worse or better than that ratio you don't matter and neither does your opinion lol..

    3. @SS: Concerning the Maus buff rumor, do they actually discuss rumors in the Q&A?

      Delete
    4. I should have said "such rumors"

      I would have imagined:

      player: "Hey Serb, i heard u buff the Maus?"

      Serb: "RO 3 years"
      ....

  2. No Tetrach in stores makes sense, it should be in a British light tank tank spurring off to the Alecto in the TD line and followed by the Harry Hopkins in the Light line.
    I want a British Tetrarch now.

    Maus buff? Let me guess, max speed increase to 21km/h, +100 hit points or something equally meaningless.

    1. Personally i hope for 245mm pen to put the fear of god back into enemies :) Now it's just LoL Maus, easy Maus trap. Just angle tank and it will bounce from you :'(

    2. Sorry i'm stupid i meant to say 260mm pen... :o

    3. 260 would bring the good back into german tanks.

    4. Yeah, keep dreaming. We all know what WG means by "German buff", we've seen it so many times.

    5. Buffed with larger fuel tanks and transmission hit box?

      Delete
    6. Roof armor and gun elevation buff *trololol*

      Delete
  5. Oh great, more secret parameters. Question to WG - why the hell do you even bother to show SOME of tank parameters in garage, if there are tons of other hidden and top secret ones?

    Why not? So cap whores can still buff their eff with retarded capping while your team is leading 14 : 2?

    1. 99.99% of people that do that do not even know what efficiency is. They are newbs or noobs. It's still bloody irritating tho, whatever their reason.

    2. There is no problem with cap whores capping when team is leading 14:2...at least you win. Without bases, teams can just camp forever and lead to draws. Even worse is the scenario in which a light on one team and a heavy on the other team are the only survivors.

      Delete
    3. Boo hoo, someone capped and you couldn't get your precious top gun or whatever, cry me a river. I've seen too many games lost because stupid kill whores refused to cap when they should.

    4. Efficiency doesn't take cap points anymore. kthxbai

  8. "- Storm states that in recent years the quality of gameplay of newbies didn't get worse, it's roughly the same"

    But they're still noobs 15,000 games later, which is the real problem.

    1. Newbie skill level has stayed the same.

      Veteran skill level has declined to match.

  9. 11 inches (279mm) howitzer

    Is anyone have Info about this?

  10. "SerB states that the current German and Soviet branches are cca 70 percent complete."

    Did he include the 8.5 branch with the six new German mediums, or did the mean the 8.4 branch?

    If the meant the 8.4 branch, about 15 new tanks still should arrive. I assume this will be a second and third TD line (one Waffenträger and one Sturmgeschütz line, with each about eight vehicles).

    1. I hope that after the new light tonks we'll get some decent high tier Soviet tanks, just like it happened with the German ones with 8.4/8.5.

      Delete
    2. StuG line should end in the Sturmtiger :3

  11. ''Storm states that in recent years the quality of gameplay of newbies didn't get worse'' Probably Storm plays another game also called World of Tanks o.O

    1. maybe you've gotten better so newbies are comparatively worse than when you started

  12. - the MM will change so both teams have roughly the same amount of light tanks (so it doesn't happen that one doesn't have any and the other does)

    Hell yeah, less MM fails then. It's not funny when you got 0 scouts, enemy got 3+. Especially not on Malinovka.

    Veider, a dev responsible for balance among other things specifically said the Maus will be buffed in this video:
