8.6 and 8.7 additional info

So, not enough info for today you say? Arty stats and 105mm HEAT nerf not good enough?

Very well then! From yet another WG insider (even though, as always, I can't guarantee this is true):

- 8.6 will be finished before 23.6 and work on 8.7 will be finished soon after (cca 2 weeks) - actual release date is not yet set
- there will be big changes in Clanwars. To quote the source:

"New areas: US (D'oh), Southern Africa (including but not limited to: South Africa, Somaliland, Madagascar), Mongolia, and, *drumroll*: Atlantis. There will be a few big events each with a ton of medals. And WG is working on a very big CW campaign with 4 stages, each stage has its own objectives and respective medals. Total amount of new medals: 58."

    2. If confused me aswell because its hard to believe:)

      do they really plan to release 8.7. two weeks after 8.6?

    3. If its just a CW Update, why not?

    4. 21.6 Is 21/6/2013 for 8.6? And for 8.7 update ETA is 5/7/2013

    5. Not at all just a clan wars update. The arty rebalance seems to be very complicated so it takes lot of time to work but the 8.7 might consist of something much simpler to implement and maybe it requires little testing so that's why it can come to us after two weeks from 8.6

    6. If 0.8.7 will be only CW update, then there will not be any testing servers. Simply - CW live server is still in beta phase so we are testing CW on daily basis.

  2. They will finish the development of 8.6 in June 21 or May 21 ?

  3. Looks like WoT will be getting some proper endgame content. Nice!

    1. CW's still in beta isn't it? Not sure if that counts as "proper".

      Other game modes, AND a release version of CW (like, isn't i supposed to be an open cross server competition?), that I could agree with being proper end game. In as much as a shooter has an "end game" (what, not supposed to be running my T1 Cunningham still after 5k+ battles?).

    2. I still play my T1Cunningham after 11k battles :)

      "CW's still in beta isn't it? Not sure if that counts as
      "proper"."
      Ok, lemme fix that for you;

  4. Then.. there is a possibility that we will be testing some of the features for 0.8.7 in 0.8.6 [ If it's by schedule to be finished that soon after ] or... the 0.8.7 will be a really minor update?


    What are your guesses?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Just a guess: German TD's. Lots of hints on that. Another alternative could be Havok and 3rd possibility is CW-only patch.

  5. Atlantis? da fuq?

    1. It will be that huge event, it was tested on RU clan wars many months ago

  6. Thank you Frank for the headsup, do you have any info on the content for 8.7?

    1. That would be great. I'm waiting for the Sturen Emil since Winter 2011....

      Delete
  7. Frank,
    did i understand that correct, that about 2 weeks after 8.6 the 8.7 Patch is ready for Rollout or just ready for the Testserver?

    ReplyDelete
  8. yes, thats exactly what is CW missing now ... MEDALS !!!

    jesus, please, wake me up and tell me that this is a dream

    WG is getting more and more stupid these days

    1. It's not a dream, I received translation request for those last week.

  9. Stages?
    Sounds like introduction of America on US server.

    Actually it was quite nice as stages were tier limited.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Atlantis. Well, this actually made me laugh.... :)

    1. Russian server had an Atlantis event a while back. Atlantis itself when it popped up on the map was controlled by a WG clan people had to fight.

      I suspect those 3 leaked "premium" tier10's are somehow linked to those CW events, medals or w/e.

      Delete
    2. That's a very fictional setting in my humble opinion. Reminds me more of Greek mythology than of tank warfare...

      Delete
    3. Atlantis - a whole new contenent you ask? WG had to put all the BS they have been pumping out somewhere.

      Herman etc.

      Delete
    4. Atlantis, home of the Ratte boss "end game" content. :P

      With his (her?!?!) White Tiger lieutenant attendants.

      Better bring a healer.

      Delete
  11. and when will the test 0.8.6?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh Medals, finally, that's exactly what we needed. Now we only should hope and wait for in game buffs for certain action like those in CoD and and big explosion and and make the tunks shoot once after me is dead, ok?*

    *for Sheldons, it was sarcasm.

    Seriously... Atlantis? How about that map on the moon then? [facepalm]

    1. Light tanks on the moon, flying from crater lip to crater lip rolling in the process shooting tanks below.

      you know you want to.

      Delete
    2. I'd play that map. But remember, gravity may be 1/6th, but mass isn't.

  13. I don´t see where is a big nerf to the HEAT shells in lowtier. Now you have 100 instead of 150mm penetration. OK. No more damaging higher tiers frontally. But 100mm are still enough to lame in T5 battles. The problem here is not the penetration. It neve was. It is the enrormous dmg you deal with one shot.

    1. Have in mind that HEAT doesn't get normalized when hitting armor, so it's effectively less than 100, I'm not sure but I'd say 85-90- which is quite easy to bounce with a lot of tier 5 tanks.

      Delete
    2. Have in mind that HEAT dont lose penetration over distance and the most enemys T5 dont have big slopes. :P

      With my experiences in the LL Matilda i can say, that 86mm pen is able to dmg most of the enemys reliable.

  14. Frank, what do you think: will the VK 36.01 finally become an Heavy in 0.8.6?

    ReplyDelete
  15. frank when will the test 0.8.6 update?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yeah, any guesses on when the test server for 8.6 would start?

      Delete
    2. who the fuck knows? no one other than devs themselves. Just wait for devs to announce it.

  16. FRANK PLS ANY INFO ON ADDITIONAL FRENCH MEDS AND HEAVIES

  17. If Atlantis doesn't feature Graeco-Roman columns, crystal spires and togas - on scarecrows if need be - I'll be sad. :c

    1. Lmao, togas on scarecrows. That gave me a good laugh :)
