Most notable points:

  • Wargaming is looking into further limiting SPG per game, no details yet.
  • Wargaming is close to having a possible solution for “Premium Ammunition”. It will bring great changes to HESH and hopefully fix the issues with the Type 5 Heavy.

Frontline line mode will return soon, at the moment Wargaming is trying to further improve the performance on low-spec PC’s. They are also planning some changes in the economic side of the mode.

 

Great! :great:

 Wheeled vehicles will be classed as “Light Tanks” and will start at mid range from Tier V to X. The reason for this is, according to Wargaming, armoured cars from the 30’s and 40’s weren’t meant to fight tanks. (Hark: If this is their reason, in my opinion, this is stupid. There are plenty of armoured cars that could be matched against low tier tanks.)

  

 

haha, so no German Puma? ... Im sad :<

With a lot of luck, the Puma could count as Tier V... however, I rather doubt it, if it has a turret and the 5 cm gun.

Type 5 has been super trash, then trash, then OP and broken and then borderline OP but still broken like it is now, but it never has been a properly balanced but enough competitive tank. I wanna see that day finally happen :v

 

Inb4 their solution is to buff the standard HE instead so there's "a reason" to use it over premium HE so we cant complain about p2w anymore :trollface:

"They are also planning some changes in the economic side of the mode". Translation:  not enough p2w ammo was used so we will make sure you WILL

“There aren’t any plans to introduce new SPG branches, this is mainly because players hate them, Wargaming doesn’t want to add more toxicity.“

Err so WG know we hate them? Wasn’t they supposed to remove them if the rework didn’t work and people still had a negative opinion of them?

I don’t understand why these will be classed as LTs as we all know LTs are majority garbage and the wheeled ones sound even worse...

Limited to 1-2 per game so now you will never have an arty free game. Ever.

 

Congrats, you all asked for it.

I think it might be wiser to limit them per map, for example not allowing arty on city maps.

 

...but that would help the arty players. :trollface:

 

However, it would also help the heavies, allowing them to thrive in city maps without worry of getting splashed when they peek a corner.

 

In addition to that, how about they don't allow superheavies to spawn on field maps with no cover?

 

Now wouldn't that be a win-win?

Really doubt it. There's really only 3 serious solutions for premium ammo.

1. Drastically reduce the price to something on par with regular ammo. Gold ammo will become the new silver and everyone is equal again.

2. Seriously nerf premium ammo in some way. You get 50% more penetration? You do 50% less damage. It will encourage smart use of gold ammo instead of just pressing '2' at the start of the battle and going gold only like 20% of the players seems to do.

3. Remove it entirely.

 

It won't happen for two reasons. Premium spam requires a premium account which is the game's primary income. And it would require a massive rework of all tanks and maps to rebalance everything again.

No change to premium ammo will fundamentally be good for players, as it is needed for their profits.

Great! :great:

 

I have a lowish spec pc and the only problems were a little stuttering right at the start of a round as all the tanks drove away, but it only lasted a few seconds then it was as smooth as, for the rest of the round :great:

Even powerful PCs had FPS issues in this mode, you could see this in Skill's or Orzy's streams. It isn't about HW, it's about code optimization.

 

Also i am surprised no one commented on this part...

 There are plans to introduce new “perks” of having a Premium Account and they might come very soon. (H: I and other CC’s have talked about this several times with Wargaming, some interesting stuff was proposed and I think overall will add a lot of value for money into having a Premium Account.)

 

+50% XP and +50% credits are not enough anymore to retain paying customers?

 

Is the game economy, under the auspicious rein of 3-5-7, effed up even for premium accounts?

New perks like premium accounts are top tiered more often.
