I'll do a brief translation, you'll read the full version later if you're interested.

 

- Grand Battles were in development for quite a while, they had to minimise performance related issues.

- They don't exclude the possibility of making it available for Tier 8's.

- Chance of getting into GB depends on the amount of Tier 10's in queue.

- Sunny Valley map will be available in HD before it goes live.

- They want to minimise the amount of researchable/useless guns (Tiger's derp gun, etc.)

- T54 got buffed because UFP was getting penned too often.

- Chinese premium tonks buffs are coming soon.

- They have some ideas about KV-5, not ready to announce em obviously.

- For low-end PC's HD maps will use a different technology.

- Havok technology will be used for visual improvements (not for destructible objects).

- Theoretically they can make night maps now, but they haven't decided if it's needed.

- They don't want to release 3-5 HD maps at a time, they want to do as many as they can.

- They're making sure people with crap PC's will enjoy new maps as well.

- RB's are tested on live servers.

- 9 HD maps will come out in 1 patch.

- They have Music 2.0 available for new maps. It will change according to what's happening in the game.

- Certified mods will be introduced to reduce/eliminate cheaters.

 

Meh.

Still they haven't even properly balanced matchmaking for anything that isn't Tier 10 *and* they are still actively punishing platooning by pretty much always giving you bottom tier, but let's not worry about important details like that!

 

Pretty visuals people!

You need a new pitchfork dude. :teethhappy:

RB's and GB's will improve Tier 8 MM, I'm pretty sure.

IMO it´s even worse. They mentioned around 9.18-ish they could adjust the new matchmaker 'on the fly', making it much more dynamic than the old more rigid system and now they seem to come back on this.

Spoiler

It was not a Q and A

It was a class in how not to answer questions put by the players but a lesson in pure utter waffle 

The game is broken beyond belief and that's the truth of it

Remember when they promised to address the issue of the whole Fochgate thing and the state of balance and pay-to-win stuff at Tankfest that never happened? Yeah. Pointless submitting questions that weren't "Gee whizz, why is your game so gosh darn awesome?!".

Not really, you'll still get actively punished for platooning so not really. Unless a platoon actually gets exactly the same MM weight as if you were playing solo, then the problem will persist.

Like usual WG has looked into the most discussed aspects of the game currently discussed by the playerbase and are then planning to try and improve on those aspects.

Like.

 

The HD maps everyone is discussing here on the forums, and the T-54 buff and Ranked Battles etc.

T54 got buffed because UFP was getting penned too often.

hahahaha, by this logic they should buff almost all tanks.

So to summarize: they have a butt load of crap we don't need, and nada, zilch, zip of what we do need?

I don't think it's funny at all. If this is the 'logic' Wargaming developers have sunken too, that's just extremely sad. Try shooting it somewhere else as a lower Tier. Ah no right, flank it with your slower vehicle...
