So here we go:

1- Will tier 10 meds and td's have the same credit earning ability of tier 10 heavy's?
2- If no, will they be able to stay in the "green" side if we use premium or not?
3- Will you adjust all tier 10 heavys or only maus and E100 after 7.5 (when tier 10 meds and td's come)?
4- What will be the hp ratio of tier 10 meds and td's, will it be similar to tier 8 ratio or different?

1- Will a alpha tester get 2 special airplanes on release, for participating in alpha and closed beta?
2- When will you think about adding more planes to existing trees? During open beta?

1- When will the alpha test begin?
2- I am an alpha tester of WoWP, does it mean i have to wait for getting accepted into the alpha or do i get a direct entry to it?


Are you thinking about WoT 2.0?

Are you thinking about World of Spaceships (it would be like EVE ships but had the Wot progression, with different classes and weapons)?

What will happen to tier 9 meds and TD's after the introduction of tier 10 meds and TD's in 7.5, because they are currently considered to be tier 9.5? Will they get nerfs? If so, what will be changed?

1. What happens with those who already have BatChat 25t in the garage when 7.5 comes, will we get it as tier 10 med? if not, grinding for the same tank again is just... no.
2. What about Japanese tanks, when will you post some info about them ?

EDIT: Wtf with -1 repping ?

Tier VII+ on reduced pricing when there is another special (maybe not 50%, but somewhere between that and 25%)?

1. Why does WG ignore community suggestions, wishes and opinions?
If I'm wrong and WG has been taking community ideas into account then please, give me a few examples.
Just as a counter-example, the "Krokodil" design got the wast majority of votes on every poll, yet you introduce a very unpopular and just as imaginary ferdi-like design.

2. Can we expect a rework of the arty system that includes more than just some random miniature nerfs/buffs? Maybe something like a redraw delay for targets >700m away or even better, a replacement for the magical satelite view?

3. How is that WoWB comming along? When can we expect the registration for alpha test to open and what will be entry conditions?

-Is there any chance we will see premium tanks from the IDF(Israeli Defence Force) Sutch as those based on the sherman (M-50, M-51, Makmat 160mm and M-50 155mm) and variations of Centurions and Pattons? Or just the many variations of the sherman from various countrys?

-Is there any chance the M50/60 Sherman (a chile sherman mounting an 60mm hyper velocity cannon) will have place in world of tanks?

-Any chance we might see the T-122 (T-34/122); Egyptians, Syrians and Cubans have different models of this self-propelled howitzer armed with Russian D-30 122 mm howitzer.

-Any chance we might see more modified versions of T-54? We have the Chinese version but this tank is probably one of the most widely modified and used world wide so there has to be more versions of it from other countries that would be interesting to introduce to WoT.

Does he agree that maps that were 50-100% bigger would make the game much better tactically and historically?

If so, will he make a new game engine capable of rendering such maps a priority?

Do you ever plan to give the whole(RU+EU+SEA+NA!) community a chance to actual influence your development priorities? Based on regulary, detailed polls to updates for example.
(The idea is not that community decides how something is done, but at least what is important.)

Is there any chance you could cut back on your "random factor"?
Nothing against a little random damage or matchmaking, but even decide game mode random or placing  4+ arties into citymaps is just a bridge too far.

When are British tanks coming (actual date not update 7.5 or whatever)?

Will we be able to choose which maps we play on in normal battles?

Are you ever going to have a combined 'global server' where EU, RU and USA are all mixed together?

When is tankers voice by nation being implemented because it used to be on the settings and not work and now it has gone completely?

When will WoBs be released, how is it coming on so far and will Britain be in as standard or will we have to wait for an update after release?

Some questions:


1.When will War Gaming listen to players
  If they do so already why don't they take obvious things such as the "red screen of death" and the "Krokodil/Jadg E-100" matters seriously?

2. When will the British Tech tree come out?
  Will we get the British tier 1 tank for free and an extra garage slot?

3. Will the Type 59 be permanently removed from the store?
  If yes when? And will the Type 62, Type 59 G or WZ-111 ever be available on the EU, NA and SEA servers?

4.Will War Gaming ever develop weekly updates like for example Minecraft?
Surely it would be much more efficient?


1. When will open beta start?

2. Will a British Tech tree be included?


1.Release date?

2. What will it include?

i have a few.

1.Why wasnt Britian included in the first nations of WOWP and WOB?
2. When can we see improved sounds such as the Maybach HL230 ?
3.Will there ever be add on armour modules for some tanks such as side skirts & extra plating obviously at a cost of weight?
4.Nation specific Voices? when can we hope to get them?
5.what update will the first wave of British tanks be in? rumors of it being in 8.x or even as early as 7.7
6.Have you finalised on the Brit SPG and TD line? what wil feture in Tier 9 TD ?
7.Will the E-10 have the "height adjustable" suspension as a workable feature for WOT and will this open a path to possible S Tanks like the Strv 103 or an early prototype of this tank which fits within the games time frame?
8.Will the players ever get to pick a map of their preference or have a map filter?
9. when can we see more city maps such as himmelsdorf?

When Physics comes out, will we really be able to move to every spot we can see?

What new possibilities are comming with the new physics?

Will Tanks ever have real holes from shots in them instead of just some "hit texture" ?

Thx for answers :)
