WoT Q&A – Falathi at NewMulti2k

Source: Rykoszet

Polish CM Falathi got interviewed by Polish CM NewMulti2k.

Q: Wheeled vehicles?
A: As the tests of the armored cars during the WWI event have shown, we can, as it was a working prototype. Right now we’re polishing the code for such vehicles, and it’s probable that we will soon have wheeled vehicles in-game.

Q: Studzianki map?
A: It’s postponed at least until all maps are given the shiny HD treatment.

Q: The return of historical mode?
A: Right now we’re focused on the Frontline mode, the Historical Battles are currently shelved.

Q: Multi-gun mechanism?
A: Sekrit dokumints)))) (according to Rykoszet, if everything goes well, ST will soon get an M3 Lee with working turret)

Q: Changes to the training room?
A: Nope, nothing planned.

Q: New personal missions?
A: No info here, who knows?

Q: How did the 30vs30 test go?
A: It ended quite well. We need to improve the mode, using the feedback we’ve gathered. The faster tanks are definitely at an advantage here, so that has to be adressed. Another round of tests will definitely be done on the sandbox, and then probably on the CT.

Q: Do you plan to roll back some 9.18 changes?
A: Some people like the changes, some don’t. The devs in general think that it’s a step in the right direction. If the data gathered in a longer timespan will show that something is wrong, we will start changing thihngs gradually. We won’t roll back 9.18 changes just because a lot of people have a negative opinion about it, because at the same time a lot more have a good opinion about it.

Q: Which tree has a greater chance to be the first one to get implemented – Polish, Italian or Hungarian?
A: A decision hasn’t been made yet, but the appearance of the Polish tree is almost sure. Nothing can be said yet, however.

Q: How long before HD maps can be tested?
A: Right now the maps are being transfered into HD quality, and soon as they are done, you will be able to test them. HD maps have a high priority, so it might happen rather soon. All maps will be HDified at once, unlike the tanks. There’s no set schedule yet. The work on them is a bit slowed down by the fact that an HD map has to have a slightly SD variant for weak computers.

Q: IS-6 buff?
A: Dunno. Compared to the Defender, it has a ROF and MM advantage, but that’s apparently not enough.

Q: EU3 server?
A: Won’t happen because of various technical difficulties And besides, two server ought to be enough for everyone.

Q: Server downtime compensation?
A: Nothing has been decided, but something might be done.

Q: Lower tier ranked battles?
A: Right now only Tier X is taken into account, but soon Tier VIII RB might be a thing, just like it was with CW.

Q: What are the criteria for premium store specials?
A: Specials like that are put up using such criteria as eg. the popularity of a given tank. Sometimes one server has a better special becasue of a specific event, like an anniversary. Each server has its own way of handling specials, but we’re trying to standarize them across servers, so the disrepancies are minimal. On a side note, the RU server is a bit different because of their economy altogether.

    1. I havent seen any RB with 15 Mauses or 15 KRV when they are clearly the best tanks for this gamemode. So chances are you wont see battles with 15 patriots or 15 defenders. Or actualy maybe, since unlike a tier X, you can just throw your wallet at WG to obtain one without grinding it.

  1. “Q: IS-6 buff?

    Yeah well IS-6 has to fight the defender, which, at the same tier and with the same class, has insane pen and unpenetrable frontal hull armor. And the cupolas are as small as on the IS-6.

    IS-6 needs an armor buff so it goes back to what it used to be: a bounce machine. The gun is fine for its tier, its the defender that is too good. 175mm pen used to be a standard at this tier with higher pens being only for german guns or fully-researched heavies… And now it’s the opposite, anything below 200mm pen is considered shit because people forgot how to flank (and maps dont allow them to either) and aim (thanks gold ammo and OP heavies).


    1. Yeah, just buff any if the premiums that have less than 200mm of pen. Cause apparently the defender has better armor than a maus. Seriously. I bounce more JP e100 heat shells of defenders than mauses


    2. yeah, IS-6 is a medium that’s made for flanking
      what an idiotic statement
      try to flank enemy in banana street in Himmelsdorf or any other coridor in the game
      You have an old premium tank?

      1. Lol, no. Yugo can build a full MT line, maybe also a SPG line, even tho no one would want it (probs).
        Romania can build a full TD line and also has a tier 10 MT, and low tier LTs/MTs.

        Check out TAP’s articles on Romania, and FTR’s articles on Romania and Yugoslavia


      2. Yugoslavian tech tree would work in World of Warplanes, and that would be a genuine, original, and unique, tech tree, with mostly historical planes, a few prototypes, and even fewer concept models. Yugoslavian tech tree in WoWs would make more sense as well, as Yugoslavian navy had their own unique ships, namely destroyers and torpedo boats- you could actually make a valid tech tree for destroyers, but not much more (aside from solid number of domestic submarines, but they are not implemented in the game). As far as tanks are concerned there could be a few interesting tanks, maybe integrated into EU tree, but other than that, no. As far as Romania is concerned, I don’t know what they had. I think Polish tanks will not have a lot of originals to offer, but, hey, can’t be much worse than Chinese tech tree.


        1. Poland has it’s genuine tanks designs dating 1920’s- late 1930′. In games terms this is material up to tier 4. Maybe could be extended, using “WG magic”, to T5.

          All the post war stuff was soviet sourced, with minor modifications/updates to keep the tanks from beeing obsolete.
          In wot terms, we had some T-34-85 (mid tiers) and T-55 variants that could make it to T9-T10.

          WG was refusing clone tanks for PL tree for very long. Currently, they are settled with paper designs found in archives.
          It looks like we are getting another paper branch with very liberal treatement of parameters from WG; think of Swedish HT line level (or more) of liberal fantasy.

          It might work nice, might also end up totally retarded like Japan HTs. Time will tell.


          1. I am sure people wont have any problems with them being paper tanks (why would anyone, actually?)
            Hopefully they get added soon.
            Oh, and if you don’t know what the Romanians have, they have the TACAM series and different Maresal versions (TD that inspired the Hetzer) from tier 1-7 (tier 7 being a proposal to arm the Maresal with a 150mm howitzer). After that, tier 9 would be the Model 89 (Romanian Gvozdika) and the TAA (check out TAP article) for tier 10. Tier 8 is problematic, maybe an ISU-152 (they were used by Romania) with different gun choices. Another tier 10 tank is the TR-580.


  2. Multiturret after 7 year of asking? (pretty much since the beta) Wow if they roll this out and every tank get it with multiple guns/turrets I actually come back to wot to try them out.
