Q&A Experiment

Update: Comments are closed. Let me sort that out and find the answers now. The answers will appear in a new blog post.

This mostly concerns EU server, since NA doesn't have it that bad, you can ask Chieftain&Co.

Alright, this is something I have refused to do until now, but I might as well try it, let's see how it works. Basically, we all know the EU server Q&A sucks (I've written about in most of the time), so as an experiment:

Write your questions into comments in this forum. I will try to find an answer for you, or - if I remember how the developers answered recently - I will answer myself (I will write my opinion in italic, so it's clear what is an official developer answer and what is just my speculation).

I also have the possibility to relay SOME of the questions to the developers (I will translate them in Russian and ask a friend of mine to post them in the Russian Q&A thread), but judging from the official EU Q&A thread, I don't expect many of those, as people essentially ask the same stuff over and over and over.

A few "rules" (more like guidelines, but please respect them, since it's my time it takes to find the answers)

- Use the comments for asking the questions, please do NOT get into discussions under this post (respect the fact I'd have to sort it out), even if the question you see is really silly
- Don't ask for buffs or nerfs (developers never bother with those, the official answer is "we will buff and nerf as needed")
- Don't post offtopic stuff in the comments
- Don't post suggestions in the comments, I will NOT relay them - that's not what this post is for, use you official forum suggestion section (NA/EU has one, not sure about SEA)


  1. 1. Why are replacement premium tanks for the Chinese Type 59 and WZ-111 being created as opposed to placing them back in (or implemented on other servers)?

  2. is There Any Chances that Indonesian Flag will appeared in the Game?

  3. Will they look at using more small destruction targets, secondary capping areas or domination type victory mechanics so as to reduce the benefits of camping, rather than simply relying on artillery ?

  4. The staff at the EU-forum should be ashamed that we've come to this...

    Anyway, I'll ask the same questions I asked in the last Q&A thread there, that only got to the question part, not the answer.

    1. What you think of the chances that the map-making tools be released to the public, and then the devs review and balance what they get out of that?

    2. Aside from independent suspension, what else can we expect with client-side physics?

    There was a third question I asked as well, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was now, and the original thread was deleted. Will get back when I remember it.

    Thanks for taking your time.

  5. Is it possible to see the assault gun line from the stug 3 become its own branch of TD's all the way till Sturmtiger or just an addition to German TD's(As in more options)?

  6. What sort of mods are considered cheating and checked for with the new anti-cheat system ?

    I only use jimbo's sights is that ok to use ?

  7. Will there be stat changes to the existing t8 artis? Specially T92?

  8. We know that ventilation and BiA gives a bonus to Commander's Mentor skill. But what about consumables like chocolate, coke etc.? Do they also give a bonus to Mentor for that 1 battle?

  9. Are multi-threading optimizations in the works?

  10. Will the height reduction on the leopard 1 increase its camo values? Also anything new on the proposed increase of accuracy on the move?

  11. Are there any possibilities that british 10 tier heavy tank can change to another tank?
    Actually I know FV215B is not planned for 120mm.
    I know that Fv215B was planed for 183 and FV215B 120mm vesion was just for paper plan.
    And are there plan which include new british heavy or medium tank?

  12. What is know so far about skill-based matchmaking?


  13. Why do the ruskies get our beta tank, the M4A2E4, whilst we do not get the KV-220? Why not just make a seperate tester M4A2E4 like they did with KV-220?

  14. Is there a general timeframe set for the 7v7 "ranked" matches' introduction? This year, or next year maybe?

  15. Hi, can you please ask for me why Type 62 has commander/radio man and WZ131 (I think it is same tank as 62) and 132 loader/radio man? And if there is a posibility they will make crew roles on all 3 tanks same.

    It is not good when you have to choose if you want learn radio operator skills for wz 132 or type 62 and not be able to use them on other vehicle.

  16. 1.On a previous Q&A serB said that "BIA allows perks to be activated at 95%". But ingame I do not see the greyed out perk button light up after getting to 95% on a perk as second skill. Is the perk active now just not showing or am I missing something?

    2. Is there plans to make alteration to tanks that perform underwhelming to its peers instead of a straight buff or nerf? Such as giving different guns or different engines?

    3.If possible can you please tell us if the german second TD line will have comparable guns to the current TD line or it will have more powerful guns in exchange for virtually no armor? Will they follow the normal german trend of lowish gun depression or will they have gun depression like the dicker max?

    4.If the prem consumables that are now available for credits not used much or deemed too expensive will their costs be decreased? Like 10-15k instead of 20k.

    5.Does HE shells have more chance of causing ammo rack detonations? And does HEAT have the same chance of causing the same as AP/APCR?

  17. question only to SerB: Do you want to make out with my dog Majka ?

  18. Is it a possibility we will see more inter-war 1918 - 1936 tanks for World of Tanks, like prototype vehicles developed during this era and other noticeable vehicles that aren't included in the current tech trees?

  19. - will there be global map cross server Clan Wars (EU vs. RU vs. NA etc.) so clans can dish it out on a world wide scale

    saleTrol EU

  20. 1) Will there be anything (WarThunder like) like unlocking painting/ spec camos for how u play with tank? I mean for example after 500 win with 1 tank u will unlock camo with leafs, zimerit etc for this tank visible for every1 ( )

    2) Is there a possibility of adding a new module: "transmission" and do not count transmission as module: "engine"?

    3) Will germans have any more modern tank than Leopard 1? (Im not asking for a modern tank with rockets etc just asking for later tanks with more modern radio, engine etc than Leopard 1 have for example)

    4) Reticles: will there be in future stand non moving reticle? (reticle which will not catch on objects like a magnet when u aim on tank which is behind an object the reticle jump on this object [self-moving] instead of holding the direct point on which u aiming)?

    5) Will there be anything like better zooming in sniper mode for sniper tanks or for tank about we know they have better optics than others?

  21. With the introduction of a scout lines will there be a reassignment of roles for tanks like Panzer 38nA, M5A1 or A-20?

  22. For how long do you plan to develop WoT/keep it alive?

    Can't stop myself... Arghhhhhhhhhhhh...

    Did anyone from the dev team watch Girls und Panzer? If yes - how did they feel about it?

    Any chance for WG to buy a license and put any Girls und Panzer stuff (like emblems for example) in game?


  23. Anything about the Sherman Firefly lately? Is it still planned as an actual tank or have they changed there minds to make it a premium tank...?

  24. Are WG going to implement "damage by spotting' into user statistics, both on game client (service record) and web?

  25. Are there any chances to see other Porsche tanks (e.g.: Porsche Typ 245, Typ 250, Typ 255, Porsche E-25 design, VK 100.01(P))?


  26. Is there any chance of reworking FV4202´s armor plus its HESH shells?

  27. is There Any Chances that Russian Flag will appeared in the Game?

  28. Woho! Finally a chance to get a reply to my question!
    Would it be possible to make shells have mass and thus kinetical energy?
    No more zero damage hits. And you get to physically push a tank backwards ^^
    hit the side of T-50-2 and only tracked him? No worries, the impact will kill it.


  29. Is there any chance that the flag of the GDR will appear in the game?

  30. Ok, I will just repost :

    Will the WOT premium account be shared among World of Warplanes and World of Warships when those game will reach some open beta phase?. I heard that free XP will be shared, what about credits?
