– With the new graphics, we want to optimize it so the FPS remains the same as it was with the old graphics;

– We do not plan to change premium ammo mechanics and introduce limits on their amount;
– In 9.19, Brothers in Arms will work together with Sisterhood of Steel;
– Erlenberg will most likely be removed, we know about its’ problems;
“Arty is a perfectly fine tank class for autists, what do you dislike?” – Slava Makarov; [TN: seems this answer is a public favourite]
– We do not want to collect money from people to give it to other people, so there will be no compendium like in Dota 2;
– Statistically, less that 5% of all shots are premium rounds;
– We’re working on an updated version of our (WG) rating, there will be separate indicators for each vehicle;
– Murazor is working on buffs for Soviet vehicles: Obj. 268, IS-7, Obj. 140, T-62. Premiums will also be affected: KV-5, IS-6 and others; [TN: what a joke…]
– The first season of Ranked Battles will start on July 5th on the RU server and will last about a month;

  1. Didnt they state that they want to make Obj 140 and T62A more different from each other, not by buffing them?

    I mean, buffs to those tanks would be utter joke, lmao

    1. Agreed. Last tanks that need buff. Kinda like buffering Defender between CT and release by increasing ROF and side armor.

    really? erlenberg? its not even in the top 10 worst maps…

    why wont they remove:
    wind storm
    paris
    karkov
    stalingrad
    enks
    one of the versions of himmelsdorf
    pilsen
    wide park

    etc?

    1. Derpenberg is one of those maps where you can sometimes get those nice flanking shots, or notice a weak side and reinforce quick enough. I wonder if the problems they think they know about is that it isn’t corridor enough. Please remove ensk from high tiers

    2. WG needs to reduce its number of Maps in the game, there are to many open Maps (heavy tanks not comfortable to play)

      Erlenberg, is just the start I’m afraid of Maps removed in 2017 and beyond ~
      and after its planned removal (whatever anyone else says its irrelevant to WG) there will be no nothing, new Map to replace it ever.

      WG and its plans for WOT are about 10 ‘good Maps’ in the game (WG idea of a ‘good’ Map they knows best, as always) most will be city type brawling it ideally suits Heavy tanks ‘for comfortable fun play’

      10 Maps in the game is really good for the servers and ‘poor map rotation’ is solved in a stroke, as are the costs involved in staffing and running the servers (over 20 in Russia.

  3. 5% is a joke, it would be believable before that gave us the hit / damage marker that tells you what you were hit by, almost 50% of the time it is gold rounds

    1. It probably factors in low-tier autocannons. No one shoots APCR with those, and it very quickly multiplies due to them. Also lowtier pew pew guns in general.

      At tier 10 the number is more like 1/3. Maybe not 50%, depends what you play, but 5% is indeed not true.

      Liked by 2 people

    2. Simple: Lowtiers with autoguns. Let one autogun empty its clip on tier 1/2 with its 10 to 20 shells and you will need 20 goldrounds in high tiers to get back to 50% ;)

    are you fucking serious? They are actually going to go ahead with the autistic idea to implement bonds and improved equipment? For WG saying they are going to listen to their community more often they clearly don’t listen to jack fucking shit right now.

      Give the KV-5 the 107mm ZiS-24 gun. IS-6 will probably just get the 122mm BL-13, slight armor buffs and have the preferential MM removed

          1. They should do to them what they did to the Sucker Pershit and buff their pen a little bit. That would definitely help. With the mm full of Defenders, Cryslers and VK Bs they would be still obsolete tho :) If the KV-5 would get the KV-4’s gun I am sure it would lose its preferential mm but with a slight buff we could at least more reliably damage meds like the T-44 and Pershit.

            1. The super pershing is certainly not obsolete. Maybe if you’re bad, it might feel obsolete. The dpm and apcr pen + it’s ridiculously trolly armor make it easily able to compete with the new prems so long as you’re not trying to fight eachother hull down at range, in which case that’s your fault for doing so.

            1. ahhh right so I did. It might not be much justification or an excuse but I personally see there being a massive difference between the two

              Labeling an idea as autistic isn’t in any way offensive to any person such as in my case.
              Essentially calling players who play artillery autistic in Slava’s case is very much offensive.

              This will come down to personal opinion though, but I’ll apologize for my remark none the less.

              And also to you, Gary, for my rude remark regarding reading comprehension.

    This right here is WG commiting to WoT’s decline. If even other branches of the company understood that gold is a problem and they still refuse to adress the issue ; they just admit how greedy they are and how they don’t give a flying fuck about olayer feedback despite all the nice words they had just a day ago or during the Foch drama.
    Go fuck yourself WG.

  14. war gaming is being fucking stupid if their gonnqa buff the t62a and object 140 both those tanks are pretty much the universally loved and rated as being in the top 5 best tanks in the game. you are fucking high if you think they need buffed…
    also to the 5% of rounds fired are prem rounds thing thats total horse shit. since the damage indicator telling us what ammos hitting you came in i can say with a lot of confidence its minimum 15% i feel like its about 30% but it definitely at least 15%

  15. Rant incoming, don;t want te read negatives, I advice not to read :)

    “– Statistically, less that 5% of all shots are premium rounds;”

    Unless they show us these statistics from their own databases as ACTUAL PROOF, all their babbles about their “statistics showing…” things being “statistically fine…” are just a fallacy/straw man arguments.

    Is it just hollow PR talk to keep parts of the player base at ease and willing to spend on large transactions? I wonder….

    “– We do not plan to change premium ammo mechanics and introduce limits on their amount;”

    Just goes to show that “balance” isn’t actually high on their agenda at all. Their words vs. actions are in conflict with each other, more so than 3 years ago.
    A root cause (one of a few) of the issue thus still remains.

    They introduce really good things (QoL tweaks on tanks, implementation of mod features, mm rework) and offset these positive changes by introducing balance disturbing content additions and content changes.

    On the other hand they state very good & promising things for the future! While on the other they clearly refute themselves and obvious issues and hide behind their statistics arguments.
    Which cannot be independently checked! So thus they can continue to claim anything actually and keep the status quo.

  17. Premium ammo has 2 solutions that do not involve removing.
    1. SU100Y style. In which the premium ammo has less penetration, but higher Alpha. Then, it will truly become “”Skill Ammo””.
    2. The more popular sentiment, reducing alpha damage and keeping the higher penetration values.

    I am more for Option 1. Getting penned with less penetration for more alpha is the way to go I think.

    1. No, I don’t think that would be the best solution. That way, you won’t get punished for ‘spamming’ gold at lightly armored tanks. In fact, you will get rewarded for that.

      Last week I was getting shot 3 times by a T54 with HEAT, while I was driving a Leopard. Those shots would have gone in with regular AP too. He got punished for that with high ammocosts, but if those shots would have done more damage, it would have been rewarding.

  19. “Statistically, less that 5% of all shots are premium rounds”

    Wanna bet they have counted ALL rounds fired, including hundreds of machine gun and auto canon shells that low tiers fire in a single battle, and including all high pen rounds fired by tank destroyers, that don’t really need premium ammo most of the times, and including HE shells from arty and derp guns, which in many cases do not benefit from premium shells as much as regular guns do, or outright have no access to premium shells?

    Because I bet you that they did.

    Statistically, if I take a dog for a walk,both me and my dog have 3 legs. Statistics mean fuck all if there is no context to it.

    Yea, IS-7, O140 and T-62 are terribly underperforming tanks with like 38% average winrate. Let this Murazor retard do some more “balancing, so we get more Maus’es, Type 5’s and Defenders.
    And what can they change to IS-6? Give it more retard proof armor than it already has?
