WoT Q&A 18.07.2017

Anton “Evilly” Pankov interviewed by official Polish WoT Youtube channel:
– We wanted to add Polish content in the past already, and now we have a particular candidate to add into the game – Pudel. We’ve searched for quite some time for a fitting model and eventually settled on the Panther, the tank was captured by Polish resistance fighters.
– We certainly know about the attention that the “Rudy” and the according TV series is getting and understand that this is important. With the addition of the Pudel, we won’t take measures to move the “Rudy” to the Polish tree at once. We’d like to offer players the option to keep the “Rudy” as a Soviet tank or to move it to the Polish tree, but this will be done much later.
– We currently have a prototype tree. We’re searching for unique tanks of this nation and have quite some successes in this regard. Also, we’ll have to solve the question as of how the Polish tree will interact with other European trees, which we’re thinking about right now, how the crews will work.

Again, Anton Pankov, this time on livejournal:
I had a thought that “hamsters” shouldn’t be able to farm ranks simply by throwing enough battles in. Could you limit battles per day to at least 20-25? – No, battle limit is not a solution. Maybe additional ranks and more irrevocable ones, but that’s just thinking aloud.
– The portal now has these ugly tiles. Please, return to the normal list of news etc. These tiles make my eyes go wild and I can’t understand shit, information is sewn all across the screen. Yes, this might look good on mobile, but why the fuck introduce this on PC? – I, as an oldfag, am shocked as well, but we’ll have to get used to it.
– Why don’t you make it harder to earn each subsequent rank? E.g. for rank 2, you have to be in top 12, for rank 3 in top 10 etc. – Too harsh, it’s simpler to increase the amount of ranks and to make the intermediate ones irrevocable.
By the way, Anton, please don’t make retarded conditions to win in the marathon (in July). The allied vegetables/tomatoes get even worse from that… – Ok :)
On supertest, another Tiger has arrived, but I don’t get why you have to test identical tanks… Jap. Tiger, Tiger 131, Tiger 217… The conveyor is there already. – For 217, we have a very insidious plan.
We know about your plans already. You’ll just strap on a different looking log, and that’s it. – Aren’t you a shrewd one :)

– I’ve collected tons of feedback regarding ranked and passed it on, there will be lots of work between the seasons. Priorities are – maps, matchmaker, economy, maybe rank advancement principles. We’ll account for this in the next season, we won’t implement changes in the currently running one.

    1. It sounds like it’s just not complete yet.

      He said in the same interview that they will show it soon nad consult the community before they start to work on it (I assume before starting the resource consuming stuff like modelling).

    1. Isreali tanks?
      How many tanks did they manufacture themselves between the first world war and the mid 60’s?

    Well, I would do this instantly. Having seen the series, I want Polish voices on my Rudy :O

    1. From what I remember, the Liberte is the style. You need to rebuy the Tier 7 AMX M4 45 (it is on discount this weekend on EU) and grind around 85K’ish and then click accelerate crew training to get the crew nice and good.

      1. They originally planned full line, then just tier 8-10 but then they just pulled the tier 8-10 as well for unknown reasons.

        Thats why I asked, because I was wondering if they are planning to implement the full line afterall.

  2. The ranked battles should be about skill,not three series per side farming 4k damage. Thats why after playing an hour every day and getting to rank four I just couldn’t play it anymore. Sad to see that they aren’t planning on rebalancing some of the tanks that have fallen behind. Looks like it is a good time to grind the Chinese heavies though. It looks like the 113 is what I always wanted in the IS7.

    1. I agree with you, making advancing ranks being based on exp done, just makes ppl farm damage to advance rank, that way its not a skill based gameplay, its a who farms more battle, ppl keep behind doing nothing to help his team win the battle just so in the final screen they appear on top, even if they were pure cancer to their team.

      But they will never implement things like exp for damage blocked, and these things that makes you a great team player, cause WG does not care about team play.

      What win a game for your team? a guy that blocked 10k damage that could have gone to their team mates, or a guy that does 3k dmg using all that help from the guy that blocked the damage? the guy that blocked the damage gets nothing of a reward, while the guy that farmed gets all the rewards, pretty fair huh?

    1. The bit about the crews is not in the interview, dunno where it came from.

      “Interact” migh mean that for example they will add tank X and not tank Y because nation Z has a tank similar to X on the same tier.

  5. Would love to hear a statement about the anime tanks. They shouldn’t introduce that retarded stuff on EU and NA. I’d rather see another OP Soviet heavy tank…
