Why are you redesigning Pagorki (Hills) map?
It's a fine map that allows opportunity for almost all styles of play.

Yes US heavies because of gun depression and T9 meds because of speed so the side with more T9 meds usually gets the hill, are extra strong there, and the side with the military base as opposed to the houses/village has a slight advantage but so what? It's definitely one of the better maps.



Reworked Komarin I understand, it accentuates the spotting issues, but Pagorki I don't understand.

Impressive list there Overlord.

Its looks several patches into the future but gives us a good idea of what to expect. Putting out information in this manner will halt (or at least greatly reduce) alot of the moaning / complaining that goes on. (yes i know im one of those. :Smile-hiding:  see how easily im satisfied  ;)  )

Thank you for a very informative post.. :Smile_honoring:

TD visibility being reworked, the assault mode where TD's might shine, tracking being reworked (yeah, im guessing arty wont detrack me as much as before), visibility issues being worked on  .... I'm happy.

Question about matchmaking: is installed equipment (gun, engine, tracks, rammer, consumables, etc) included in assigning match value, or still stock-market tank is worthy exactly same as fully upgraded and equipped one?

Installed equipment is not taken into account currently.

Added gold transfers between clan members.
PLEASE remove that. Please, please!

We don't want gold scammers and other nasty things like "you tell us the location of your team tanks on TeamSpeak for important clan match and we will accept you to our clan and give you 1000 gold".

Bad idea. Please never allow player to player trade.

Nice post, but i fear it is taking to long to keep the interest in the game for many people. It might be 4 month+ till we even see US TS's. But we will see how it will work out, not much we can do.

Ok. Is it considered to put it back into matchmaking? If yes (I hope, you are not throwing away that functionality) any idea when it can be implemented back? It was originally in the match-making system.

No, instead of that there will be individual tweaking for each tank.

Looks like a really nice list of upcoming items and fixes.  I'm really excited about release.  Is there some info available somewhere about the A-32, Pzr V/IV and M6A2E1?  I'm not really familiar with these.

One of the things that sounded really nice was the re-working of the de-tracking mechanics.  Here's hoping it works as intended and the constant state of being tracked on first hit and then being perma-tracked until dead is decreased significantly.  

Sad to hear that SPGs are "working as intended," that no additional changes to them are planned (like limits in number and size), and that even larger SPGs are being added.  Right now, the only negative thing about the game that makes me not want to enthusiastically subscribe on a long-term basis is the current implementation of SPGs.  Just about any battle with 3 or more large arty is such a soul-crushing experience, it's finally killing any enjoyment I get out of the game and causing me to play less.  Before, I'd just hate it and play though it.  Now, I'm finding it hard to even do that.  Even low-tier matches with 3+ arty per side really suck.


On the plus side...the fixes/buffs to German vehicles (especially the gun mantlets of some) are welcome.  I've driven heavies for all three nationalities and I think they are all fairly competitive with each other except for the gun mantlet issue with the German vehicles and the fact that the US T34 is really kind of "LOL" until it gets the 120mm gun and even then, it's just a little less "LOL" with a bigger gun.  Perhaps the re-working of the trees will sufficiently address this issue (among others).


All in all..good stuff coming, more or less.   :)

Pz V-IV i n wot tankopedia

Nice looking tank, but I can't find this info. What tier will it be? It seems a bit strong for T5 (830hp) and a bit weak (75L48) for T6.
