0.8.6 - Storm on rebalance, part 2

Just a few more points from Storm's article discussion:

- the "economy change" won't be the gold shell hardcap
- the armor coefficient (see previous part on FTR, spall liner HE calculation) is 1,3, not 1,1
- it's Zlobny's call how much the arty will be nerfed, not Storm's
- it's possible that the shell credit reimbursement will be in 0.8.5 prices
- the normalisation of regular AP rounds wasn't touched
- Storm states that immediately after the patch goes live, we can expect anything, real results will show after like a month
- 7/42 will come this year

And a two late evening answers from the regular Q&A thread as a bonus:

- the new T10 tanks will have regular tank profitability, but crew-wise (switching the crews etc.) will work as premiums
- dry trees don't give a camo bonus

  1. I follow this blog just for a short period of time, maybe that is the reason why I don't know that, but what means:

    7/42 ?

    3. Actually it's max tier 8, but you must have 7 tanks adding up to 42 tier points.

    4. Basically what ESL 7v7 is, only made to fit into WoT's current TC system.

  2. From Storm by SS
    "- the normalisation of regular AP rounds wasn't touched"

    From Storm by _Quasar_
    "The normalization of all armor-piercing shells was reduced down to 2 degrees (from the current 5). "


    From me:
    ???????????

    1. WTF is going on? We can't even get consistent info on the same day!

    2. i think its meant for APCR shells

    3. @ morgotz
      Then it would be Quasars huge mistake in translation.

    4. Told you, Quasar's a moron. His "article" is a literal translation of Storm's post here: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/197291.html

      And Storm writes: Уменьшение нормализации всех подкалиберных снарядов до 2 градусов - reduction of normalisation of all SUBCALIBER shells to 2 degrees

      Delete
    5. He also wrote(translated?) this:
      "At the same time some short “mortar” guns will have their shell velocity reduced by one and half times, which is quite logical."

      If i understand it correctly, lets calc.
      Shell_Speed=1000m/s
      "by one and half times"= 1000m/s*1,5 = 1500m/s

      That would mean, 1000-1500=(-500m/s)????

      Okaaaayyy. The shell will kill the arti when fired?

      Maybe i did understand it the wrong way.

    6. I assumed they'll increase travel time to one time and a half the current one, but it's just my interpretation.

      its
      1000/1.5 = 666.66

    8. Lol, in this case I clearly understand Russian version, so I do not understand how Quasar could translate it wrong, especially that подкалиберных and subcaliber are very similar words. It seems that he just has no idea what is AP.

      And I see here one more problem. There is premium APCR ammo and there is also normal APCR ammoin the game (for example in tier X and some tier IX meds or T71). And there is also APCR ammo called ingame AP to "not to confuse people" (in German konisch gun). So all of them will have normalization changed or only premium ones? From storms wording всех it seens that all, so maybe this is why penetrations of top meds wasn't changed. But still do not know what happens with konisch.

  3. "- dry trees don't give a camo bonus"

    1. no there are no such plans , only russian retarded players ask for that

      Delete
    2. "only russian retarded players ask for that"

      Yes, clearly asking that people be restricted in how many armor-negating rounds they can carry = retarded.

      Neat that the reduction of normalization should limit the effectiveness of APCR/its various forms against angled armor...sad that my Matilda IV will no longer be able to pen KV-1 frontal weakspots at an angle with it. Oh well, sacrifices must be made.

  5. There was some talk about it being implemented (eg. 30% max gold rounds on vehicle), but it looks like WG dropped the idea.

    1. If it's a decent idea they get rid of it immediately.

    2. Not really.

  6. so now AP has better shell normalization than APCR???

  7. "- it's possible that the shell credit reimbursement will be in 0.8.5 prices"

    Could someone explain that part for me? I don't really get it.

    1. 152 mm HEAT shell from KV-2 will be deleted from game and people will get money back for them in credits

      Delete
    2. I know that but why does it say that "it's possible" it will be in 8.5 prices? In which other prices can that be doen?

      Delete
    3. in 8.6 many premium shells will have their costs increased.

      Delete
    4. Since this shell won't have any price in 8.5 it makes sense to use the actual price, doesn't it?
