Q&A from gamescom

– Sweden did not actively participate in WW2, but in case of an attack, they could produce high-quality vehicles oriented on good armor;
– Strv m/42-57 Alt A.2 – this vehicle is very diverse in its usage and can occupy different roles. The tank will be good for training a Swedish crew;
– There are currently more than 400 vehicles in the game and the developers try to diversify the game. A bright example for this is the new tier 10 Swedish TD – Strv 103B, which will bring a series of novelties. Which, we cannot say now;
– The new mode incorporates a real site from WW1 and we’re proud of this;
– We’re also presenting the Mark IV, carefully modelled, even with the assisting wheels at the back. You will not be able to play it though (it will be bot-controlled), but you will have other means to prove yourself in battle – you will have wheeled vehicles with high-caliber machineguns;
– For us, this will be a possibility to try out new mechanics as well as present new impressions to the players;
– If the wheeled vehicles recieve good feedback, we might implement some in the game, but no promises whatsoever;
– There will also be a unique garage for this event;
– We really like the Swedish national voices;
– Paris will come in 9.16;

    The problem is that WoT timeframe wheelies that are capable of combat end with tier 3. And only starts again in WoT2.

      1. The French have good options too. EBR 75 / 90 at tier 5/6 or 6/7 (depending on Scout MM), and lots of post-war stuff up to T10, I’d assume it ending with the AMX-10RC.

          1. Probably, I dont think it’d be possible to stretch the line to T10 without the current Scout MM system (Which I hate with a passion) or without a few obscure vehicles / prototypes.
            My best guess, at a non Scout line would be (From T5, because pre war French ACs arent my thing)
            5. AML-60; A very bad derp gun stock, with upgrade to a 20mm, I’d assume itd be Luchs-like at best.
            6. EBR-75; Same guns as current AMX 13 75, though, I’d assume T6 might be too low, simply due to the autoloader, might need to go to 3-4 shells.
            7. EBR-90; Same comments as bove, but with AMX 13 90.
            8. ?…
            9. ERC-90; might work better at T8, but ehh, still pretty new (1977), but I’d say it fits well. Could easily use better shells for 250 or so pen, albiet with tiny damage.
            10. AMX-10RC; questionably out of WoT’s timeframe (1981), but I dont THINK it had a smoothbore gun. Good comparison to T10 mediums though.

            I’ll admit, I threw this together out of boredom, but it’s atleast “something”, lol.
            I would have put the VBC-90 at 10, but 1985 is a bit too far, and 105-90 is stupid.

                1. Well, autoloaders AND wheels (At 6/7*), but yeah, pretty much.
                  That’s assuming WG even tries it, but I can be hopeful.

    1. But this is world of TANKS and it should remain as that. Do we really need the armoured cars and wheeled vehicles as well as halftracks? Personally I don’t think so.

        1. Really depends on the specifics, there’s atleast a “few” that would help diversify it.
          Too mindlessly tired to list them right now though

    This sounds funny to me.
    Tanks are 100 years old now, we make a WWI mode but you can’t play the Mark IV TANK because we are too derp to make multiturret/gun system after all these years, but you can run around with an armored car instead, happy 100th tank birthday!

  3. new Paris Map?
    really yet another city corridor Map to go with Pilsen crap, so is it – World of Heavy Tanks now

    what about the other 11 new open maps ‘lost in super test’ for most of this year?

    new Match Making?
    well WG will very likely tailor it to its WOT ‘business model of fast cash flow’ which is there for all to see
    – which has nothing at all to do with ‘fair comfortable play’ and balanced teams
