7.5.2013 part 2

- flipping the tanks - it's possible a part of client physics will come earlier, but turning the tanks over is tied to client physics so it won't come before Havok introduction
- RU251 (tier 8 German LT) will come "later"
- regular to free XP transfer for credits won't be implemented
- IS-7 mantlet doesn't have any 0-armor (bugged) spots
- T-50-2 won't apparently be replaced by MT-25 in 0.8.6
- there won't be an arty hardcap (of 3 pieces or less per team) implemented
- the 3-4 weeks for 0.8.6 is to be taken only very roughly according to SerB, more like "not before", it's not yet even sure if the "June" date (from Russian "In development" means a date when the test starts or release)
- regarding the WG staff checks to avoid leaks: "no comment"
- regarding new maps being used for assault and encounter: "we add modes on maps if possible"
- it's possible San Francisco map with Golden Gate will appear in WoT
- it's possible that at some point some maps will be made exclusively for encounter or assault, but it's not planned for now
- Supersherman and FL-10 Sherman as French premiums or even Israeli tree possible? "All variants are possible, but we don't comment on further branch development."
- Westfield assault will return when it's fixed
- kinetic model for shells (mass) is not planned
- new game modes - not anytime soon
- French hightier premium TD's in next 2-3 patches? "Wait for announcements"
- bigger battles (30vs30 etc.) - not anytime soon
- increase of model polygons won't come this year
- regarding T10 arty rebalance: "Tests will show"
- in 0.8.6, there will likely be a bridge between KV-2 and arty branch
- historical battles are still planned, but it's too early to tell
- the steam-powered KV Yuri Pasholok found documents about had apparently around 400 brake horsepower
- SerB thinks 0.8 arty accuracy is okay
- apparently Tiger is really unsuitable to become a premium vehicle (SS: absolutely no idea why would anyone ask that)
- SerB on trolling players: "Not players, but retards. Those are different categories."
- S-51 significant nerf confirmed ("it's tied to the specifics of arty rebalance")
- there is not enough German arty vehicles for another full branch
- M7 second turret weight is okay according to SerB
- new platoon search system will be implemented
- transfers of credits from one player to another are not planned, but it's possible the gold will be transferrable
- HEAT shell damage nerf for 0.8.6? "No comment, wait for tests"

  1. "SerB thinks 0.8 arty accuracy is okay"

    Possibly if splash, RoF and ammo count went up. I'm still struggling to woek out what will happen to my M7 Priest if it is demoted to T3.

    1. RoF will most certainly go down xD

    2. Retrain your crew for the M37, problem solved.

      Delete
    3. Go check his ecent stats with SPGs, he seems don't even know how to play them.

    4. ^SerB i mean

    5. ;) I think my recent stats with the Priest are acceptible!

      The joke is that you drop the M7 a tier, drop it's RoF, Engine, etc and you're left with something like the M37, presumable the M37 then would need to be buffed... and you wonder what it is achieving at all.

      I do have a M37 in the garage (and a T57 fwiw) but I can't be bothered playing it as the Priest is more fun.....for now.

      Delete
    6. I think they're doing it because historically the M37 was the succesor of M7, so it should be better in game as well. However, I have no idea why didn't they put them in this order from the beginning...

    7. but if the effectively swap the stats and tiers shouldn't they face up to the fact that they might as well just rename/model the tanks......the current situation has some historical issues (though historical sequencing of trees is of secondary importance to the tanks within them) but the actual SPgs are some of the more appropriately balanced ones in terms of gameplay.

    2. "You have to play 100 battles to transfer gold".

      Nope, too much effort :D

    3. 1 night for botting program ;)

  3. - SerB on trolling players: "Not players, but retards. Those are different categories."

    So, he stands in front of mirror and trolls himself? :D

    1. Nope. He stands in front of you and trolling you. This pretty much makes you a retard.

      Delete
    2. No, he doesn't, there is no one in front of me, so you must be standing also in front of mirror and looking at yourself. Therefore you are the retard, now if you don't mind get on your knees and start sucking cuntface.

  4. - there is not enough German arty vehicles for another full branch

    Not enough artys? Lol
    I bet I could even make up three branches of arty if I go through all of my Panzer Tracts/Panzer Variants books...

    1. Actually, no. You'd have a real problem with anything above tier 6.

      Delete
    2. What about the proposals by Krupp and Rheinmetall based on modified 38D chassis?

      Delete
    3. Well... as far as I know, those Waffenträgers actually end on 150mm guns (I am not even sure if they were capable of accurate indirect fire). There was a 210mm mortar on 38t chassis proposal, but again, arty-wise, that's like tier 8. One possibility would be Sturmpanzer Bär, but that thing was so heavily armored it would be ridiculous.

      Delete
    4. Could we find room for this? Or is the complete lack of transverse a problem. I suppose something like would would cause some problems but the splash damage would be fun to see.

      NEMO.

    5. I can´t remeber if it was just in the WoT Forums or also an answer from WG but it wont happen (at least i wouldn´t belive it), as it has no use with a 10 minutes reloadtime in a 15 min match and beeing a bit of inaccurate... Its just like the "Ratte"

      Maybe someday with 30 vs 30, bigger Maps and matches with 20-25 minutes per Round, but you know, it wont happen in the next time and even then i won´t bet on it to happen.

      Delete
    6. Karl-Gerät won't appear (obviously) because of the shell power, but due to the fact its historical rate of fire was like one shell per 15 minutes

      Delete
  5. Transferrable gold... Now that would pretty much be the end of new account promo codes.

    great soviet purge incoming from SergeIosif "DerP" BurchatovStalin

    or even Israeli tree possible?
    Trilandian q possible

    - transfers of credits from one player to another are not planned, but it's possible the gold will be transferrable
    Good because of gift system for forum microcontests run by players
    Bad because of WHINERS ("my cat is sick,can you give me 300g,so I could feel better?")

  7. An Israeli tree? You have got to be joking. SerB already said no mini-trees.
    How could he even consider such an abortion of a tech tree before a tree from a country that actually bothered designing and making their own tanks for decades such as Czechoslavkia or Italy or even Sweden.

    1. Because it's doable.

    2. Second copycat tree will be too much.

  8. Super-Sherman for Frenchy Prems? The hell? Why would they recieve them as Premmy's?

    ReplyDelete

    1. This was more related to the Sherman with FL-10 turret

      Delete
    2. Because FL-10, M 50 and M 51 was developed by french.

      Delete
    3. They weren't, only the guns were AFAIK. The FL-10 is an Egyptian conversion - not sure who did it.

      Delete
    4. Israeli and Egyptian conversions probably appropriate as French premiums. Hope to see the Super Sherman added first. French still without a prem medium anyway.

      Delete
    5. SS, initial engineering M50/51 Super Sherman conversions was done in France, by French for Israelis.
      Same for FL-10/Sherman for Egyptians.


      Delete
    6. Ah okay, I wasn't sure, I thought the French only engineered the "leightweight" CN guns and the turret conversions were done by the ISR. Thanks for correcting :)

      Delete
  9. Hi Frank are the "improved armor mechanics" already beeing tested on Supertest? If yes what are the changes what is it like?

  10. i think i will sell my artys when they nerf it that hard:(

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't know if this has been asked before but is there any plan to change the hesh shell mechanic ?

    ReplyDelete
  12. The main reason why Tiger is no suitable as premium vehicle is the fact It is already in tech tree.

  13. - transfers of credits from one player to another are not planned, but it's possible the gold will be transferrable

    Any hint when?
