WoT: Steel Hunter AMA with Game Designer Daniil Shek

A member of the Steel Hunter Development team, Game Designer Daniil Shek, will be answering some questions about the mode.

Q1. Will Steel Hunter be available as a permanent mode with or without upgrades and changes to the mode?

A1. We are currently working towards this question. We have few ideas about the mode’s future, and currently we are collecting all the data to make decisions. So it’s a mystery even to us 🙂

Q2. How is the loot distributed on the maps?

A2. That’s a pretty simple one, anywhere you can drive your tank loot can be spawned. The system tries to distribute the loot randomly between those places every wave of loot spawns.

Q3. Why do all SH tanks start very slow and sluggish unlike tanks in Random mode that can be researched and upgraded with modules? Makes the start of the mode very slow.

A3. It depends on its class. The light and medium based tanks do not feel slow at the beginning of the battle. We are balancing tanks not as vehicle which stay the same from the beginning to the end, as every game has its own phase. Some of them are powerful at the beginning in one way but have a disadvantage in others, so its a trade-off for some classes. And one more thing to mention, it also helps ensure all players get an opportunity to get involved in the battle.
