6.6.2013

Random piece of fact: Czechoslovak community on EU server has a new community organizer. It's a girl (again) - I wonder why didn't they accept xkatana instead (he was considered earlier for the position), maybe he lacks boobs?

Also, Slavamakarov (surprisingly his real name is Slava Makarov, one of the producers/developer head honchos) confirmed that Superpershing will be taken away from the shop. It is not yet decided whether this will be a permanent thing, or just temporary. It's also not yet sure when that happens. He himself was the author of this proposal and it was approved by SerB and Storm, he doesn't view it as a compromise.

 - apparently, Maus ROF won't be buffed
- the system where only the best players of each team are rewarded (like in sport) won't be implemented, as WoT is a team game
- the new SU-26 top gun AP shell has the penetration of 80, while the golden HEAT shell has the penetration of 74. This is intentional, as the AP shell loses a lot of penetration over distance, while the HEAT one doesn't.
- automatic fire extinguisher test price (10k) is just an experiment, it's not definitive

Oh yes, and as a bonus (I forgot to add it to the last post):

Change of Lorraine 40t model (courtesy of MotorizedPatriot)

    1. No, that's the weird part. Allegedly no change.

    2. Yeah that was definitly the most urgent change to the lorraine...
      I guess they still researching, whether that 50 hp Buff (when they moved that tank to tier IX) made the tank op, or not /Sarcasm

    3. still..the lorry is still as useless as it is
      the lorraine worked very well when it was a tier 8
      moved to tier 9 without a gun buff...ridiculous

  2. I still don't understand how removing the Super Pershing is going to solve the existing "issue" with that "terribly" unhistorical angle. I really can't help thinking that they just want to remove the last cheap tier VIII premium, make a lot of money in the next weeks and finally introduce something else after that. Well, let's wait and see.

    1. This is what you get for stupid shitstorm because small change in angle ;D

    2. Do you really think they care about player opinions?

    3. Give everyone back their gold, remove the tank, fix the armor, put it back in the store. Over and done with. Everyone who wants it back will buy it again, everyone else will buy something different. I can't believe the amount of time they've spent fussing over this.

  3. So the Lorri finally gets the historical turret instead of pillow one :D

  4. ''- the system where only the best players of each team are rewarded (like in sport) won't be implemented, as WoT is a team game''

    Warthunder at least understand this part, you should reward a player for his performance, not whether he wins or not.
    That should be a bonus.

    1. Why don't you play War Thunder instead of WoT ? ;__;

      Delete
    2. No tanks :D

      Delete
    3. Why don't you come up with a decent argument?

      Delete
    4. Okay, I'm going to elaborate my question since you don't get it: If WoT is bad and Wa Thunder "understands" things you consider important and obvious than what you're doing on blog dedicated to Tanks and WoT saying that woT is bad and War Thunder is good ? Isn't it better to abandon WoT and play War Thunder instead ? Why wasting time whining here while you can play game that you'd really enjoy ?

      Delete
    5. I see reading is hard, he only said that WoT doesn't give a f... about a good player that lost thanks to that so called "team game", cause his team was picked by the handicapped mm system. Selfish play is already present in WoT, so why not make such rewards to make them play harder.

      Delete
    6. "the system where ONLY the best players of EACH team are rewarded (like in sport) won't be implemented, as WoT is a team game"

      Makes sense, but I hope they are still planning to change it so the best two players on the losing team get rewarded as if they had won.

      Delete
  5. Haha, I said that warthunder has one thing better than World of tanks and that means that I like warthunder more?
    You're a genius.

    I haven't even played it since they screwed up the economy with their low income/high aircraft prices.
    If you don't agree with me that okay, but don't accuse me of saying things I never did.

    1. Still, why whine about the game ? It won't change anything and you look like a douche ;__;

    2. It takes a douche to recognize a douche...

    3. Wow, Anon from 3:48, you really are a stupid faggot, and your continuous usage of that obnoxious emoticon makes you look like a retarded, inbred twat. WG won't pay you for protecting them in internet discussions, so end this damage control bullshit and get some reading comprehension skills. Cunt.

      Delete
    4. He didn't whine. He just stated something, and the WoT fanboys, that somehow can spew insults to WG about every little change, but can't stand ANY comparison to another game, tried to hound him.

      Delete
    5. Lovely Wot fanboyism is still present I see.

      Delete
    6. Poor guy. Got engulfed by the dense WT fanboyism tide ;__;

    7. Not that guy, but that emoticon is pretty fucking stupid.

  7. KV-5: cheap, earns lots of creds - removed from shop, Type 59: cheap, earns lots of creds removed from shop, SP: cheap, earns lots of creds - will be removed from shop. See a pattern here? The whole armor issue is just an excuse to get rid of the last cheap T8 premium.

    1. Saves a lot of controversy if they do that instead of raising the price of those tanks.

      But still, they will come back in the gift shops, I'm sure of it.

      Delete
    2. SuperPershing and KV-5 will on special events.
      Type 59, i dont think so. Its still overused and another bag of them rolling into server will break MM even more.

      Delete
    3. You just can't break the MM anymore...
      Wait...*Looks at test server*

      Nevermind.

  8. - the system where only the best players of each team are rewarded (like in sport) won't be implemented, as WoT is a team game

    Were in fact is WoT a teamgame ? CW and Company maybe but random is mostly a game were 2-4 players from each team decide if they win or not, the other 10 players most of the time ( iam talking here about 85% of all random games ) just leech and hope that a handful players win it for them.

    I can post a shitload of screenshots were you can see that YOU are doing it and not the team.

    A reward for the people who are the best is just an honor and fact that they were doing it and no one else ......

    1. ... and there are 0 players from each team decide if they win or not in WT random....
      (damn, i compared it again :/)

    2. LOL I've seen many battle in WT when 1-2 good players basicly won for the team (they shot down 10-10 planes in arcade) so this is not true... I don't get why there are many WT fanboys... the game isn't bad, but there are the same ammount of stupids...

      Delete
    3. I've seen many battles in WoT when 1-2 good players had 3-5 kills. And what does this tell us about teamwork now in WoT or WT?
      The "stupidity" depends on the player base, not the game. WT gameplay is simply different. Some is better, some is worse.
      I would like to stop comparing it. We could also take LoL. There teamplay is way more important, but I don't like this approach either.

    4. In War Thunder you have stuff like:

      Bomber-->Destroy the most ground units
      Hero bomber-->not sure how many but at least destroy half of all ground units.

      And no these are not medals, that give you nothing, these give you rewards.

  9. Ok,so they fix the turret but not the wrong inclination of front plate on the hull,good work....

    1. Is it an actual buff or just a cosmetic difference? Does this mean the Lorraine is getting a depression buff? More frontal armour?

    2. Only visual, nothing changed, it still remains the worst t9 medium in the game.

  11. Hmmm, I totally do not understand SP withdrawal. Same story as with KV5 - no reasonable reason (from player point of view). Cause I do not believe that reason is in price. In case of Lowe they just changed price from 7,5 to 12,5 and people were still buying it.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Personally I think the reason why they are going to remove the Super Pershing is because they have another US tier VIII premium med around the corner to replace it. (whatever that may be is anyone's guess but there are a lot of candidates)

    As for why WG likes having only one premium tank for each class per tier. I think it's for convenience (less tanks cluttering up the tech tree) and of course creating a sense of exclusivity and artificial scarcity to boost sales, a bit like how clothes go in and out of season.

  13. Any pics of this new community person (I'm very interested in the "boobs" part)?

  14. Why are you surprised? Of course it's boobs! Majority of players are male and it's easier to "organize" them if done by female. Moreover, "community" doesn't need someone skilled or knowlegeable about the game, boobs are sufficient and much more important. That's just how balls work ;) and it's too late for you to get them removed :P . Just watch esl stream and see how viewers behave.


    Can you ask a question on RU Q&A? I'm curious about sth.

    2. I'm interested in last 2-3months stats of premium ammo credits versus gold comparison.
      I wonder if it's still viable to keep gold option when anyone wanting to pay real money can do it via credits4gold. If removed it would invalidate "gold noob!" claims :P and made easier fine-tune balancing.
      Ask this the way you think is most successful, key argument to everything is stats (either by quantity or credits spent normalized to credit/gold exchange rate), i bet gold use is less than 10%.

      Delete
    3. PS: one more argument for removing is that in common reception premium ammo would be part of "normal" game without slightest hint of pay2win and whole game can be slowly balanced around it when needed (not that i'm on any side, that's just an observation).
