WoT Grand Finals Q&A

Thanks to Vlad for translating.

– “Defender” will not be sold again for quite some time;
– An anti-cheat system is being developed which allows for mods to identify themselves, testing should start in autumn;

– There will be a new camouflage system which will be more diverse. We’re currently working on the interface, no deadlines yet;
– The Foch branch will be reworked, it’s bad from tier 8 upwards;
– Amount of arty in battles is lowering;
– No plans at all for T-22 medium;

– There are some problems with Maus and Type 5 Heavy, they’ll be fixed in the next few patches;
– We won’t remove preferential MM from the tanks that have it;
– There will be a possibility to use nicknames of inactive players;
– Malinovka will not be removed;

    1. Tbh, the entire line is mediocre and needs buffs, expect maybe the tier 5. Tier 2-4 kinda sucks aswell; the map changes on lowtiers made UE 57 lot worse than what it used to be.

    1. Actilully they are at most going at the soft stats as the type 5 was useless to begin with and they brought it back to life with the buff they gave it.. So im thinking they might be removing the goldshell to be a ap gold shell Thats my guess

  1. The french TD branch is going to be reworked? Sacre Bleu, I spilled my wine. I effing knew it, premium tank announcement equals branch dust off.

  2. “– We won’t remove preferential MM from the tanks that have it”
    Some pref. MM tanks (IS6, WZ-111) are useless now.
    They should receive a better gun and pref MM should be removed.

    Their advantage (the pref MM) is now is meaningless now. Most games are +-0 and +-1 tier anyway. When the game it +-2 tier, then there is only 3 +2 tier tanks.

      1. Nah, only something much simpler.
        But nevermind it. My problem is/was that on the Russian servers they have done this literally years ago.
        We are reaching that point just now… and not even now now but in months or more!

    There are really ppl out there asking for this? I could understand if they asked about Paris, Pilsen, Stalingrad or Kharkov being removed, but malinovka?

  4. Alright! So, as I was saying before, now it’s just the Defender that is a problem.
    By the end of the finals we will find out that there are no more Defenders, because they are not selling them anymore and thus no more OP tanks in WoT.

    I believe this was their last chance of fixing this.
    They had the choice of either keeping the money they made selling the OP tanks and making some quick bucks in the next 6 months then closing the shop, or they could accept to maybe lose some money, offer an attractive trade for the tanks that they retire in order to lower the losses (because it’s bits they are selling at the end of the day) and survive for a long time by focusing on balanced gameplay. I remember that people used to play dota over 10 years ago, and are still playing it today. WG could have achieved that if they accepted to lose some money in the short term after they crossed the line with the tanks they released, but winning in long term by making an enjoyable game for more people and selling balanced tanks.

    I feel that even the youtubers sailed away from the WG docks, and even if they have no idea where they are going yet, they feel that they should look for another destination. This is too bad, I was grinding some lines to reach some tanks I didn’t get to play yet, and I feel like WG is shitting on the whole progress I made up until now with this greedy move.
    Too bad, they had a good game.

    sure, sure, sure.. Yesterday I have submited ticket against one guy with cheat, I was spotting in Lakeville map in the bush near the lake. I got blind shot from one enemy tank I was spotting. Ok, one shot not a big deal. Then he shooted me again, ok then I decided to move more to other side behind the rock. The started shoot HE :) I hear from the sounds that was HE. There is a cheat when you hit something not spotted tank you got alert. For sure he was using this, but you know what was WG answer?

    “Please note that it is practically impossible for a player to be able to detect some such mod on another player, which is why sending us replays from your point of view with a feeling that a player is cheating is not enough. Many players have amassed a lot of experience in this game and can simply be playing very well and having a good game.”

    Ofc yellow player has such a skills to do it :) and then reload for HE :) sure sure.. I think they even can’t detect and aim cheat mods.

    1. I shoot bushes that are known for spotters all the time.
      Play enough games, and you know these spots by heart.

      Just because you don’t think it is possible, doesn’t mean it is a cheat.

      1. please read again what I wrote.. I also shoot to possible bushes for scouts, but I don’t make more than 2 shots to the same place. Also, why that guy just decided to load HE after 2 hits? Around was more 2-3 bushes, but he shooted to other bushes just for 1 time.

        1. 1. how do you know where he shot besides the shots that hit you?
          2. You seem to be using a cheat mod as well, since you should not know who is shooting you if they are not spotted.
          3.switching to HE makes sense in that situation, because speculative shots cost credits, and HE is cheapest shell.

          1. Man, you are really joker, I was in sniper mode and watching that guy, that’s how I know he shooted me, cause I saw his every shot. I think he loaded HE, cause he knows, that was only 1 scouts and it’s paper armor, so for me that make a sense not for credits, but for damage.

        2. Why did he switch to HE?
          Maybe because it was obvious a light tank was spotting him?
          Also, many good players can tell where they are getting spotted from, no cheats needed.

        1. Good luck flanking a Maus on a citymap/corridormap, before the absolute latest part of the game while your team is winning.

          Oh, wait. You can’t pen a Maus in most of the tier 8 meds and lights, unless dead on from the sides.

          Gut balans, da!

    1. Having around 5% extra winratio on ALL skill levels is balanced?

      The buff was absolutely titanic. Lets not forget that arty change was also a buff for super-heavy like Maus, as arty was probably biggest counter to it. Not anymore.

    – While you’re at it, allow players to buy permanent camo for credits aswell, or, allow us to earn camo tokens from missions that can then be used to buy a permanent camo of your choice for free.

      1. Don’t forget to put HP buff as the cream in the top.

        I think it can keep gun handling buff and HP buff, but reduce its DPM a bit (between original DPM and current) and nerf a little bit of its side armor. Some turret traverse nerf might be nice as well.

  9. Well they did admit the Maus was overbuffed. But oddly enough they never said that about the Type 5. I don’t mind the Derp gun, nor is the biggest issue I have with it the gold ammo damage. It’s the shell velocity. As unlike the KV-2 derp. The gold shell goes faster then most AP shells.

    That and I don’t get why so many are upset about them not making new maps. The same people have done nothing but complain about the last few maps. So if they don’t like anything they make. why so sad about it?

    1. Because Pilsen and Paris are god awful city maps where one flank cannot support the other that are purely built for heavies just like 80% of the other maps in the game where the team with more heavies wins 90% of the time. People want more open maps where they can actually be effective in their light/medium tanks but all of those maps but 2 have been removed because idiots whine when people out position them and shoot them in the side

      1. could not agree more the dumbed down Maps in the game now are the worst part of the game as its where ALL tanks play no choice at all.

        its Pilsen your in a T8 Medium/ Light tank enemy team has 7 Heavy Tanks 3 are T10 .. so its, Go fuck yourself ok! no choice but to desert click out
        (remember back in 2014 ‘deserters’ who clicked out were so common WG bought in ‘new rules’ to force you to play shit maps you hated.

  10. So that big, big news about the whole premium issue is just “we will stop selling them… for now”. Deja vu anyone? Something to do with E-25 maybe?

  12. “Malinovka will not be removed” one of the 2 maps left in the game where fast unarmoured tanks can actually be effective and people have been calling for it to be removed? Yeah this is exactly what is wrong with this game. You take that map out and the only true light/mobile med map in the game is prokhorovka and I see morons complaining about that still all the time because people can actually out maneuver them and wreck them when they play dumb in their heavy unlike on all the other corridor maps.

    And Maus and Type 5 will be fixed in the next few patches? How about fixing them in a micro patch ASAP. Not only is the map meta totally in favour of heavies and the arty change totally in favour or heavies, but the retarded buff given to them will now take “patches” to change? Honestly there is no point in playing anything but heavies atm as 90% of the time the team with the most heavies win.

    “Just flank the Maus/Type 5” Yeah good luck with that, you’ll only get a chance to flank them if they are massively stupid or the game is nearing it’s end in which case killing them will make no impact on the game whatsoever as you would have already won or lost by that point

      why 4000?
      fuck knows, incompetence internal politics hand in hand with inter-department little kingdom building is my guess (Russians remember
