World of Warplanes Dev QnA – post your questions

23

I have some great news for everyone playing Wowp or considering to play Wowp. WG has agreed to host an exclusive Dev QnA for this blog. All you have to do is post your questions and the devs will be answering them as soon as possible.

I want to set up some special Rules though:

  • Check the comments to see if your question is already asked.
  • Keep the questions on topic, these are World of Warplanes devs and no WoT or Wows devs.

Share this with your friends who also may be interested in Wowp and most importantly, have fun asking 🙂

WoT Fjords translation to HD#2

8

WoT Express has just released a video on the reworked Fjords map into HD.

*Note* The translation may be a bit wonky

The video will show following things:

– Gameplay changes on the map Fjords when translated into HD, as well as video demonstration of new graphics.

3:16 Fjords in HD, with graphics settings on ultra.

12:05 exclusively gameplay changes on the map ( The middle hill is now passable as well as the removal of some boosts. )

Update 9.21: British Tank Destroyers

45

Some nice pictures of the vehicles and illustrations of armor profiles old and proposed from Wargaming plus the usual explanatory text. From Wargaming.

British non-turreted TDs are largely underappreciated due to their feeble armor. We address this long-standing issue as part of an all-around Tech Tree revision, increasing their protection to help them reclaim a place among conventional assault TDs. With thicker protection up front and on the sides, they no longer suffer from glaring armor weaknesses and can be an intimidating force leading the attack or helping allies. With that, let’s dive into the details!

These TDs are currently being tested and their exact parameters might change. We’ll be monitoring your feedback and game data to fine-tune the lineup by the time Update 9.21 hits production servers. We’ll update you on the final settings; meanwhile, please jump in to test the TDs and share your feedback with us!

Why Revise Them?

TDs on the FV215b (183) line won’t exactly set the Thames on fire (er, not that you’d want to) when it comes to mobility, but it’s not their job to win races. These Brits pick their battles and have enough damage potential to put heavily-armored enemies to sleep working as assault guns or supporting the team from the frontline. Thick armor, excellent DPM (over 2,000 at Tier V; sweet, huh?), a great fire rate, and easy gun handling let them meticulously destroy the opposition, compensating for below-average mobility.

WoT Erlenberg translation into HD#2

13

Rework of the map to introduce gameplay changes. The video also shows the borders and beyond. If your vehicle has a high enough power-weight ratio the river is crossable almost anywhere, baring almost vertical banks. Enjoy.

Timecodes (for video):

00:05 Exclusively gameplay changes on the map
02:47 Erlenberg in HD, graphics settings (preset): Ultra
08:19 Showing changes for the boundaries of the map area
09:46 P.S. 🙂 ( Here the graphics are set to low and the 125fps framerate cap has been disabled)

FV215b 183 to Badger Trade

33

A few brief points before the new Tier X British TD hits the tech tree and replaces the FV215b 183:

  • As usual by now, those who own the FV before the trade in will keep it as a special Tier X vehicle.
  • The FV215b 183 crew will be retrained for the Badger. As the Badger has one more crew member than the FV, the new crew will come with a 100% trained radio operator.
  • Going off vehicle changes in testing, the FV215b 183 will also receive an ammunition capacity buff. Going from 12 to 20 shells. Obviously subject to change.
