Q&A by Maksim Chuvalov with Amway921

47

Hello,

finally done translating this Q&A with Ctacello’s help:

-In the 100 Years of Tank event, the main task is to capture the enemy base.

-There will be a lot of exciting new gameplay elements (100 YoT Mode).

-The wheels in the armoured vehicles can be blown.

-The event will be cross platforms.

-The composition of the team will be less than 15vs15.

-The preparation of the 100 YoT mode started around the end of last year. This mode wasn’t inspired in Battlefield 1, we developed this mode before the announcement of BF1 trailer from E3 2016.

-There’s a potential for Swedish Tech tree to have all types of vehicles.

-Swedish tanks are not like the other nations, both visually and gameplaywise.

-Everything will be tied to the hydraulic suspension (it can be done in tier 8, 9 and 10)

-The suspension is currently in prototype phase.

-Hull control, height, lifting/lowering… these are what our departments are working on.

-If the players approve this new suspension system is very possible that we introduce it to vehicles like the STB-1.

-Some Swedish tanks have same speed backwards as they do forwards.

-We drastically changed parts of the Sandbox that players weren’t satisfied with. The second iteration will start in mid-autumn.

-We are currently making big changes to the matchmaker. The main objective is to not have unbalanced teams and to not annoy players. Its most likely gonna be introduced in the Test Server but we don’t know when.

-We are adding more diversified sounds in 9.16 and extra interface customization options.

-”Map Paris has a lot of variations for the attack”

-Stalingrad map is nearly completed, we have invested a lot of energy in it but there are some problems, gameplay problems.

-We are continuing to incorporate mods to the game and will introduce Hangar carousel (2lines) and Damage log.

-We are improving visibility, how the tank is spotted and how it displays. More information coming in September.

    “-Some Swedish tanks have same speed backwards as they do forwards.”

    Some other current tanks should also have this, but it was decided to nerf this capability because this was supposedly to unbalanced. Does this mean the current tanks who also should have this might also receive this?

      Well when we talk about “some tanks” i’m pretty sure that means the Strv. 103 and the Udes 03 (im not 100% on the Udes). The main reason for it, is the radio man in both tanks (I’ve seen pictures suggesting this would have also been the case for the Udes) faces in reverse and has his own set of steering and throttle controls.

      Considering the other tanks that this is the case for, such as the Porsche Tiger I kind of doubt it for game balance reasons. It seems as if the Swedish TD’s are likely going to be filling the role of the ultimate ridge-line snipers.

    /// having a kind of “shadow” (just vague shape” being spotted first would be cool
    So if you know your shapes : you can tell what tank it is… if you get closer: its spotted as usual 😀

    AHAHAHAHA console owners as usual will get destroyed by PC users…why do devs allow console players to go against PC users is beyond me

      its more likely that cross platforms means in this case – “it will be same on all platforms” rather than your (correct) interpretation

    Why stop at 2 lines for the Carousel ? When you have more than 100+ tanks 1 or 2 lines is the same. Why not put option to choose the numbers of lines (i used 4 lines).

      I’m of the same opinion. Although with the new tank selection system 2 rows are not enough if you have +200 tanks.

        You are right, and the new Filter is really nice, but I cannot understand why they have left out a non-elite tank filter? It is pretty obvious there should be a filter for all the tanks you still haven’t fully researched, right? 🙂

        thanks for all the nice content Rita!

        100 tanks 1 line
        200 tanks 2 line
        300 tanks 3 line
        400 tanks 4 line
        Etc…

        Great thinking right there! Not
        Why not just one real time filter?
        Duh!

        in eve online I had 400+ skills…
        Suggested filter (many agreed)…is ingame since- and nevvver had to search longer than 3s ever again.

        Or do u got 10000 bookmarks, instead of using google?

        I…guess not.

        BTW only tier filter was missing, last time I played.

        PS yes I’m gamedesinger for hire. :p

    So… Wargaming is finally buying community contributors? Murazor made a reputation due to his constant whining. WG hired him and now he sings praises to them. Amway was quite critical at times as well. Now he’s their spokesperson? Very good move by WG. Now if only they could buy Jove as well.

      That’s something I talked about months ago. Sorry for the rudeness but Murazor is the fucking idiot who created most of the hoaxes and hate wagons against Wargaming last year. The hoaxes in particular were being eaten easy by other bloggers like if it was grandmas soup… I kept on trying to warn the community of this BS and then people started giving me heat for warning them that they were being told something untrue so I just stopped… nowadays if something is fake you just wont see it on RSR, I still check if rumours are true even when they are stupid as they look but I just dont talk about them. But yeah… this is a common practice from gaming companies, they try to give a job to people who makes the most noise because when they sign a contract they lose their freedom of speech.

      Honestly… my life has been easier since that guy been in WG. The BS levels have gone down a lot since then.

        By the way, speking of Amway921. He recently made a video about FV 215b. He said that it will definitely get high poly model. And that, according to him, means that FV will not be replaced neither by Chieftain nor by uparmoured Conqueror. At least not in a foreseeable future. Would you happen to know something about this, Rita?

    So does that mean that Chinese and Japanese lines won’t get their TD/SPG lines? Or that the Swedish will get all lines upon release?

    Believe it when i see it.. i.e it wont happen.
    Meanwhile, heavy-spending gamers get enticed to spend money on other, fun, balanced games. No more cashcows for WG.

    In 4 years of playing WOT iv heard a lot of promises a lot of reassurances and ‘great plans coming’
    so far?
    Nothing much really, nothing much at all ever,, talk is cheap lots of cheap talk
    which is how Wargame seem to like it, is almost there standard PR practice now

    maybe they think the EU server players are just dumb and stupid, maybe there right? to believe a word they say regards fixes, plans and promises

    What a 180 degree about-turn in policy?
    I expect it to be released around the same time they include: HAVOK based physics
