Sooo ..What are you guys going to do to the stug and PZ IV in general ? Just making 3 separate models for historical battles, or have 3 models for random as well ?

Question: What happens when you have only loaded AP shells?

For all the hype I've been hearing about this update, there doesn't seem to be much, the new physics isn't coming in 9.0 and only a few tanks are going to be HD right now.

3 year of Malinovka, yet you need to "improve" the map?!

Let me guess, less bushes and trees, more other "terrain features".

I don't care if there's only a few improvements, as long as whatever they do doesn't result in crippled FPS or ping. Much better they do things slower with full optimisation and no downsides.

 

Edit - re above, they're changing Malinovka???!!!!!!!! That's my favourite map, the only one that's still really good for scouts! :-(

I'm also very interested in the changes about Pz IV and Stug, but knowing how WG "works" about splitting GERMAN tanks I know for sure that the currently mediocre Pz IV will be much better than all of its new relatives, same goes for Stug. Just one more reason why I should keep my KV-1, isn't it ?

 

Historical battles. If they were to implement this for real, the germans would dominate everything. Can't have that, what would the russian community say ?

 

We'll have to wait for the patch before we get happy or angry.

WG announced it will split Pz IV and StuG III. According to the old Russian heavy line splitting, does this mean free tanks with slot and 100% crew like back then? When the 2nd German heavy line was introduced, players didnt got nothing cause it wasnt "splitting". Now it is... :hiding:

was wondering, as many others, on how you will change the stug and the pz IV?
splitting in two both of them means that we will have 2 more german tanks? or will it be only for historical matters?

how about the building phisics?

the video says you can choose which campain you want to play in "historical mode", will the season in which the campain happened affect the module of the tanks? I mean: winter--> cold metal breaks way faster due to mechanical stress than in summer with higher temperatures...any hope in fixing the lag issues? and how about the arty problems as disappering shells, not turnig hulls, shell which land far far away and out the aiming circle?

You mean like how the germans won the largest tank battle in history - the battle of Kursk - right? Sure showed those russians...

The "improved" graphics does not look any better, at least on your video.

Historical battle sounds cool, hope that it will not be broken like the last two new game modes you introduced.

HD models? Would be nice if most of the tanks would get new models, but only few of them... 

Flying cupola! That's a nice one!

More realistic suspension. Also nice, but what about different tank behavior on different terrains that you showed us?

Map changes. It's usually to the better so i agree on this one.

 

All in all, pretty lame update considering the version numbering, release delay and all the hype that you created with all those teaser videos.

 

Realistically, this means that for the Havok engine we will need to wait 10.0 update, if Havok will ever be released.

So, suspension mechanics and turrets flying off.... What about Havok destruction and stuff? Not yet?

Yeah, but that was with the Russians having an almost 10 to 1 numerical advantage or something stupid. In teams of 15 V 15? No way on earth T-34s with stock 76mm guns are going to be able to take down the things the Germans will field. They will end up all camping in SUs.

I've just noticed it - in this video, during "opening scene" - there's ASAP written as "AS SOON AS POSSIBLLE". Is it intentional?

And they need to get a move on with putting the Sherman Firefly in game, or correctly balanced historic WW2 Western front battles 1944+ involving the Brit's aren't going to be possible.

First of all see the numbers of tanks and FIELD GUNS and troop displacement, also the air supremacy of the Red Army in that battle. There where many factors why the Red Army won. We all know that if that would have been only a tank battle then it might, MIGHT (not pushing an agenda here) have been different outcome of that battle!

The Germans had around 3.000 tanks of all types, the russians around 5.000 of all types. Hardly a 10:1 advantage.

Well, in that case they lost a thousand more tanks than they had. ;) Losses are 6064 recorded, for the Russians. Somewhere under 800 for the Germans...sound biased yet?
