Interview with Konstantin Soldatov on Wargaming.FM

– “Sandbox” (rebalance test server) will come in June;

– It’s not good that everyone on the test is shooting gold, maybe something will be changed;
– The replacement of Waffle E100 is the last change in tech trees before the global rebalance;
– Football this summer – watch the news;
– Replacement of “Domination” is not to be expected in the near future;
– There is a 2nd season of personal missions planned, but no deadlines yet. Mistakes from the 1st season will be accounted for;
– Identification (certificates) of mods – one possible realization of combatting illegal modifications;
– No marathons to be expected;
– Bonus for “tanking” is postponed for now;
– Bonuses for medals – was discussed, but nothing more. Medals are supposed to be commemorative anyway;
– Bug with clan camo will be fixed, but not in 9.15;
– No return of the Waffle is planned, not even a reworked one;
– No buff for Lรถwe is planned;
– There is a solution for the new “mortar” exploit, will be fixed, but not in 9.15;

  1. \”โ€“ Wheeled vehicles are not planned;\”

    Confirmed : WG hates pumas.
    Call PETA.

      1. A 100km/h French armored car with a long 90mm would beg to differ :^)

        Also, does the T-50-2 count as an armored car? :\’D

        1. Yeah – with FCS and range finder – too modern.
          T-rocket-F1 counts as F1.

          1. A Panhard EBR from 1951 with an FL11 turret from an AMX 13 turret is hardly too modern.

            If I were asking for something from the 80\’s, you could laugh at my face and call me an idiot, but the EBR is a pre-war chassis design, with a 50\’s turret place on top.
            The SU-122-54 is a more modern vehicle (in terms of design), with more modern rangefingers…

            1. Same situation as with multiturret – too damn lazy and incompetent ๐Ÿ˜€

                1. But they did have tech for it.
                  The Havok.
                  The fucking Impossible for WG.
                  The Everlasting Promise.
                  The EU/NA Master Race trumps over RU toasterland.

  2. Not in the plans, no date for that, not certain, no, no, and more no. Even the stuff they announced ages ago.. I wonder when the hell WG think the Russians can get themselves a pc that was decent 5-6 years ago. Because still my old backup pc plays the shit out of this game..

    1. Seriously, they promised the 215b change four years ago. FOUR years. \”Nothing certain\” since that. Retards.

  3. Hey Seb, not interrested in a new attempt to send questions to devs? ๐Ÿ™‚

    (maybe with fewer questions or not sayin\’ those come from the Armored Patrol if you are afraid not to get answers ^^ )

    1. I can answer more than half of your question:
      – no ETA
      – currently not planned
      – maybe in the future
      – no

  4. Sooo… basically, they fully adopted the Soonโ„ข way of working.
    Mhm, yeah, yeah I see.

    *rages internally*

  5. โ€œNo marathons to be expectedโ€
    โ€“ Whaaat? What does this mean? There wonโ€™t be any more marathons to get free tier 8 premiums? ๐Ÿ™

    โ€œWheeled vehicles are not planned;โ€
    โ€“ I really, really hope that WG NEVER adds wheeled vehicles to either WoT or WoT2.0, it simply looks silly and rediculous. Just look at Armored Failfare, they have armored cars and it just looks stupid :/

    โ€œFV215b was planned to be replaced by Chieftain, but nothing certain yetโ€
    โ€“ Fine, then add it as a new branch, but get it into the game ASAP WG, many people want this tank :/

    1. Look at Crossout – goddamn spectacular wheels physics. Thats why I stopped playing CRAB since I ragequited from one stone and fuck it all ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. I\’m not fimiliar with the vehicles in Armored Failfare so I have no idea of what vehicle you\’re talking about ๐Ÿ˜› A while ago I saw a video of a car driving around in AW, looked like some kind of lightweight gocart on nitro ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

        1. Lets just say like this:
          1. Rock. Box. Tin can. Hitbox that has no textures.
          2. Spin 180.
          3. ALT+F4.

          1. Hahahahahaha ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Hitbox without textures ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
            Good job Armored Failfare ๐Ÿ˜€

            1. Thats nothing. How about missing effects when arty is shooting at you.
              Or when AI shoots from side or ass.
              Or still spawn on you. And you die.

              1. Hahahahahaha ๐Ÿ˜€ Wasn\’t it also something about bots being able to shoot without turning their turrets? ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

                1. \”Oh, M1A2. His turret is turned to other si-\”
                  *M1A2 shoots from the side of his turret*
                  *gun taken out*
                  *gun fixed*
                  \”Well there goes my comfo-\”
                  *Incoming arty*
                  *gun damaged*
                  \”Why I even bother….\”
                  *incoming arty*
                  *gun damaged*
                  *incoming arty*
                  *gun damaged*

                  1. Yeah. Sad part is that it seems WoT will soon have the same arty… if not even worse ๐Ÿ™ 240 mm debuffers with quick reload :/
                    *incoming arty*
                    *commander injured*
                    *heal commander*
                    *incoming arty*
                    *gunner injured*
                    *heal gunner*
                    *incoming arty*
                    *driver injured*
                    *heal driver*
                    *incoming arty*
                    *loader injured*
                    *heal loader*
                    Wouldn\’t surprise me if that\’s the new meta after major rebalance ๐Ÿ˜€
