- Confirmed from supertest: developers now have a new way how to detect present mods (illegal mods) from replays for the whole battle (eg. if you report a cheater by a ticket, devs have a way of telling what mods is he using) - for now it's not automatized
- devs are not consulting gameplay issues with players, because all they get is whining
- the amount of credits for losses won't be lowered and for victories won't be increased - devs thought about it long time ago, but decided the current balance is just fine and the company mode proved that such a thing is irrational
- it's possible the difference between winners and losers income in companies will be lowered
- according to SerB, Gaijin War Thunder tanks don't have much chance to beat World of Tanks ("Don't hold your breath")
- with the new camos, players who already bought camos won't get gold/credits back to buy the new ones
- Storm on WoT conspiracy theories: "It's the same as in real life. Real life also has enough conspiracy nuts. According to them, the "reds" are to blame for everything, or the "whites", or the "greens". "
- Ersatz Panther will get the US stars, but won't get the US camos
- WoT for Linux will definitely not come. It's not decided yet, whether there will be WoT for Mac
- British arty will come this year
- it's unknown, whether the Japanese will make it this year
- 2nd German TD branch this year? "Everything's possible"

    2. ...and the word Gaijin (外人) was originally borrowed from Classical Chinese into Japanese. Same concept as "tetrahedral" coming from Greek, and "sapient" coming from Latin, both words used in English.

    2. about War thunder, i love how research or Tech Tree works

      for example, if they are Panzer IV, it will be researched into Ausf A, C, D, E, F, G, H and so on

    3. Maybe tanks won't be enough to beat WoT, but WaT already has a good aerial comvet simulator, and we gonna have ships aswell. WG is working on that damn WoWs for 3 years and it still isn't finished. Maybe WG has huge advantage in tank warfare, but they develope their games so slow that Gaijin could easily catch up with WG.

    2. Well... I will not change over to WT (I'm just one person though) due to among others
      - I have multiple tier 10 tanks and do not want to grind whatever is equal to tier 10
      - I have bought gold, premium and Type 59...
      I have invested a lot of time and a little money in WoT and I don't wanna "waste" all that
      -I don't see how WT can be so much better than WoT (woohooo.... they got friggin' airplanes in the same battle as tanks... great... in other words no awesome metal beast (E100(Yes, I love E100), Maus), and planes and the likes are one of the main reasons why you don't see bigger and bigger tanks today (HT, Super-HTs)

      And well... I don't have that much to complain about WoT in generally

    3. Germans only get P2s as Top tiers while Americans get Patton IIIs, French only get the AMX-13/75 while Russians get the IS-4.

    4. It was stated that those "leaked" tech's are fake and that the actual tree will be better/"more exciting" according to devs.

      As for WT vs WoT, i'm tired of playing on, let's face it, small maps, so i kind of welcome a larger battlefield and fight more than just tanks.

      Delete
    5. I feel sorry for you, in a compassionate way :)

      My imagination, too, was limited by the terrible and sterile grind that is WoT.

      I was desperately looking for an alternative, and read that WT will feature Tanks. I never was into air combat games, or any aviation for that matter, but I just tried WT and immediately felt comfortable with the controls. (so much so that I'm planning on buying some Saitek x52 HOTAS system.. jeez)

      "(woohooo.... they got friggin' airplanes in the same battle as tanks... great... in other words no awesome metal beast"

      are you kidding me? here's what will make many, if not most, WarGaming victims wet their eyes and pants...

      - various weather conditions
      - choice of daytime incl. night battles
      - AI targets (Army, Navy, Aviation, depending on the mission type)
      - Arcade battles in which you can play multiple vehicles in sequence, so if your plane/tank is destroyed, take the next one from your garage and do better
      - Secondary armaments, player- and AI-controlled
      - Real Visibility, no 1x1km maps, no 500m max. view range, no disappearing tanks 30m in front of you
      - no HP bar, a critical hit is a Critical Hit
      - have I mentioned choice of realism? Arcade, Historical, Full Real Battles
      - and more

      So many different ground units have already been spotted, including but not limited to tanks, half-tracks, SPGs, AA, mobile AA, etc. etc. .. imagine yourself and some friends in Wirbelwinds in defensive positions in the woods near a friendly airfield, shooting bandits all over the place.. jeez!

      Please don't let WarGaming make you give up your gamer's right to ever-improving immersion and entertainment.. try WT :-)

      Delete
    6. So far I tried WT's planes and, how to put that... I just find WoWP, even in CB more enjoyable :P That may be just a thing of being used to it and playing it, but generally the controls seemed somewhat plastic? I mean it's really easy to control your plane, but I rather struggle a little with WoWP's controls so that I can use my skill to my advantage. Also,most of the things mentioned for the WT are going to come also to WG's games. I think that both games are quite fun, but when it comes to planes I see bigger potential in WoWP.
      And 1 more thing - people whining about WT's better physics, bigger maps etc - remember everything is calculated on your PC, not on the external servers. So expect to encounter cheaters from time to time :P

    7. My biggest beef with WT/Gaijin:

      Gaijin's Russian bias put Wargaming's to shame. Any seasoned WT player will vouch for that.

    8. "imagine yourself and some friends in Wirbelwinds in defensive positions in the woods near a friendly airfield, shooting bandits all over the place.. jeez!" /end quote
      I imagine that would be very dull , if the planes don't show up there,if you happen to drive to the wrong spot or that the planes destroyed the targets before you got there, then you take 5 mins to go to the next spot . Just camping and shooting at aircraft the whole game ,tried that in planetside 2 was boring a hell. This whole combined arms thing gave me an eboner as well but in practice it is going to be boring for one side . Map sizes for aircraft and tanks are not really compatible . And the last and most crucial point :it after all the times i got shot by arty from a kilometer away, now i get creamed by someone in the clouds 2 kms up ?No thanks ,Lol in about 3 mins into the game (WT) you can get 8-10 tank kills easy in one pass . If those were player controlled tanks , oh the rage that will follow . And if the AA gets buffed compared to the current AI AA flyboys will whine .This combined arms thing is a nightmare to balance . If they make a tank only part of it , it will be inferior to WOT at least for a year or 2 . Be realistic . Don't be a fanboy :)

    9. Russian bias? The Russians are almost the least played nation in WaT. People play mostly Japanese and Germans.

      Look both games are F2P, why not give it a try? They are both very nice games. They have similarities but they differ in most aspects. If you want realism and real WW2 fealing you will like WaT, but if you want more intense battles stick with WoT.
      I like them both and intend to pley them in the future.

      Delete
    10. I'm realistic. I'm not a fanboy. I enjoy climbing for seemingly endless minutes, getting myself into an advantageous position to do my part in a Historical Battle.

      I like a good mix between Arcade and Realism, and that is what WT is giving me.

      Maybe you're different, and you like tanks disappearing right in front of you. Maybe you enjoy hitting an enemy tank full-on from 50m, trying to take his last shreds of HP, hear 'That one went right through!' and seeing that actually nothing happened, and he shoots, and you die.

      You say that WOT will be superior for at least a year or two, yet in so many respects WT is already a much better game than WOT is now, and if Army mode will be structured like Aviation, WOT is done for those that seek a more genuine gaming experience.

      Someone also mentioned that WoWP is better than WT - well, let Youtube be the judge of that. Just search for both titles, and you'll get fair comparisons.

      And Russian Bias? LOL? That comment proves the person never played anything but Arcade, and even there didn't know what to do with his machine.

      My highest nation in WT are the Germans, because they are great at energy fighting. Just saying.

      In WT, a great pilot in a low-tier machine can terrorize the battlefield, even when there are faster, more powerful, more heavily armored and armed planes. It's about skill. Try that in your PZ4, Sherman and T34 against a bunch of high-tier tanks.

      Lastly, I would like to stress that I have played both games (WOT for the last two years, WT since about a month), and that therefore I declare myself quite able to compare the two games.

      The argument that you should not change because you have invested so much into one game is simply not valid.

      Try it on for size, set up controls by performing the tutorials and maybe some test flights, and dont feel embarrassed or ashamed if you start to like it :-)

      Delete
    11. I said some time ago - wait a while, you will get your own russian bias in WT, it makes as much sense as in WoT but whatever.

      Delete
    12. You are declaring something to be superior before it even releases . That is the very definition of a fanboy. Pen no damage whines really ? AFter playing 2 years you are still whining a problem that can be corrected by adding a new crew voice file . Well some WG higher up said that WT can take our haters and now i see his sentiment was quite right .Please leave and take you whine with you . You will not be missed . Yea WOWP as it is now is a pos compared to WT no argument there.

      Delete
    13. Of course SerB can make this claim. Until the market proves him wrong, he can keep saying this, because his game is the established one. And also because his game has years of polishing and adding new features. Unless WT has ultrahuge team of code monkeys working 24/7, there is no way it can be so feature complete as WoT, and especially not so balanced. It reminds me of all those WoW vs insert-your-WoW-killer-here wars. Every time the game in question found it's customers, but it failed to cripple WoW, no matter how much some people were claiming it is better in every aspect. So please, if you thing WT is better, good call, it's your choice. But people can also have another opinion and by insulting their playstyle and preferences, you will get your insult back in your face... and these insults are really bad way to promote your game. Every insult made in defense of their favorite game makes me despise the game a bit more. So because of that, I don't have any urge to try WT now...

      Delete
    14. I am not declarding something superior before it releases - I am comparing the game engines of both WT and WOT to each other. Both are present games. Now kindly troll on somewhere else, WOT fanboy :-)

      'WOT = Feature complete' ?!

      wh00t? What do you consider a 'feature'?

      Tanks only, Main armament only, from Day 1 up till now, nothing in WOT has changed except the amount of tanks and the physics model.

      I did not insult anyone, I am merely trying to save all those poor souls whose imaginations were crippled by the lethargy that is WOT.

      Delete
    15. I would say WoT and WT can be shown as a CoD and BF example. Both are good games if you want fast paced gameplay or a big, mostly open map with land, air and sea battles. The choice is truly yours to take.

      Delete
    16. You really are no position to sit in judgement on which game engine is better , that is only your opinion . I played WT and the thing is i got bored after like 200 games (came back for the april fools lUlz :P). But i find myself get entertained thousands of games later in WOT.What you find enjoyable is just your opinion and does not spell the doom for any game/company .

      Delete
  5. I have a feeling thet WT will appeal to those who want more realism while WoT will be the arcadish one. Not a fan of airplane gameplay myself so I'm waiting for the tanks to come. But I certainly think that WoT will lose lots of players if WT gets it right.

    2. Realism control, yes; realism tank performance, a big NO.
      It is just another Russian biased junk and maybe even more serious than WoT. Don't make too much fantasy on it.

      Delete
    3. Heh . About the realism thing .. You say having no Hp is a good thing . What will occur is a lot of rage at the result of a shooting match where players will not be able to understand why their opponent got/ did not get damaged or the way they were . Lol refer to rage at no damage pens in WOT .

      Delete
    4. Realism? Try Red Orchestra 2, for instance.

  6. So they will still not increase the rewards for winning. The rewards difference between winning good players and winning AFKers remain embarrassingly low too.
    Did they not indicate a few weeks ago they wanted to increase the general skill level? Rewarding that skill level seems to me the most obvious route.
    I guess they are afraid of chasing away the botter/afk and failmonkey parts of the community.

    9. WaT also has protoype planes. But unlike WoT, their machines weren't just on paper. They were built and flown. And thus we now their chracteristics.

    11. <>

      If you have no clue, why even bother posting?

      Do you know how many variants there have been of the PZ-II, PZ-III and of the PZ-4? How many Hetzer, StuG, Jagdpanzer, Jagdpanther editions have existed? And those are only the tracked vehicles... think of AA vehicles, rocket launchers, mobile artillery...

      WOT only needs paper-tanks because for some dumb reason, it only features full-track tanks, and one is not allowed to control most of the full spectrum of WWII vehicles.

      If you enjoy sterile predictable tank-vs-tank encounters without real distances, real visibility and real damage, go ahead and stick to WOT :-)

    3. As ^ anon said, try both and then decide. Currently WT feels somewhat better as it has 3 modes for aerial fights and is closer to a sim game than WoWp who aims for the arcade'ish style as WoT. You can easily get started as the controls aren't difficult comparing to WoWp before 4.0 and even after the update they feel somewhat sluggish. Currently you also have a better aircraft type selection like bombers or dive bombers which are similar but different.
