A short Q&A with Viacheslav Ushakov. Originally from 19 December 2018.

Q: Why did the Santa vs Krampus event not appear on the CIS server?
A: This was an EU server idea. We don’t copypaste events between servers.

Q: Why can’t we get big boxes without paying?
A: Many streamers do giveaways, try your luck there!

Q: Why don’t you triple the team damage penalty, instead of removing it completely?
A: Because accidents happen, and we don’t want to punish the players for them.

Q: Why not implement quantity limits for gold ammo, instead of nerfing damage?
A: This would mean the ammo would be used against heavy armored targets anyway. It wouldn’t change anything.

Q: Do you plan to introduce more mods into the game client?
A: We’re constantly monitoring which mods should be integrated with the base game. Personally, I would like to see session stats.

Q: Will you allow us to pick which maps we want to play on?
A: Wait for premium account changes, tests will show.

Q: Do you plan to remove old, unused accounts to free up some nicknames?
A: We’re already doing that, sometimes unnanounced.

Q: Why is changing your nickname so expensive?
A: So you don’t molest our servers with queries.

Q: Any plans on enabling more players to get the Object 907 or the VK 72.01?
A: We haven’t decided yet. The list of event rewards will be finalized in 2019.

Q: The IS-3 has an automatic loading mechanism now, give it to the IS-7 now for historical accuracy!
A: Doing this would force us to rebalance other stats. Taking into account that the IS-7 is the most popular tank on our servers, we don’t want to risk it, because we know we won’t please all the players.

Q: Ten reports per day are insufficent, an increase maybe?
A: No plans for that.

Q: A rebalance of tanks relying on HE shells?
A: Yes, we’ll redo the Japanese tanks.

Q: What about the Italian TDs? A low tier prem? The Awful Panther?
A: TDs – not yet, low tier prems – maybe, the AFKpanther isn’t ready.

Q: Can you roll back the T-22 changes?
A: No, it would be too OP. That’s also the reason why it’s not available.

Q: An ELC rebalance?
A: Not now.

Q: Of all announcements, what awaits us the fastest?
A: Front Line, the mode is now 100% ready.

Q: My Buffon is commanding a Japanese tank, and I don’t like it. Will you enable us to change tanker nationality?
A: No, we’re not planning to.

Q: Any info about the T67?
A: It’s problematic, and will most likely be redone with many other vehicles.

The interesting one is :-

 

Q: Will you allow us to pick which maps we want to play on?
A: Wait for premium account changes, tests will show.

 

Looks like they won't be going with a version of the WoWs new premium solution.

Does it imply that premium account owners would have a map choice ? If that is the case, isn't it P2W ? I mean as a premium account owner, I will choose open maps for lights, city maps for heavies etc. Will this not give an advantage to the premium account player compared to the free account player ?

I said it before and I wil say it again, nerfing the damage of the gold will not fix the game it will be the end of it....

Not sure. If you are a HT and pick a city map, you still have to do dmg and win to do so, and thats no guarantee, even if you are not on an open map...

Guys, regarding the map exclusion: hold your horses.

What if they implement it that you can pick three maps you don't want but it applies to ALL your vehicles!?
(Or what if you can only pick it for the of your tanks....)

Otherwise it would be too desastrous for game play. Only lights and Arty on open maps, only heavies in cities.
Plus if they allow us to deselect maps they have the best AB testing and evaluating tool to assess which maps are liked and not!

Let's wait how they would actually implement it.

It will not be map choices, you will be able to block few maps, lets say 3 from rotation, wont make a big difference

It will come in handy if you need to do the arty missions.. Block the usual city maps untill your done.

Sounds pretty good to me.

Depends on how many times you can do it. If you can do it whenever you like and as much as you like it would be handy. If it is only once  month its a different story

True.. And it would make the missions kind of "rigged".

I still don't get it as to why this feature is required. There are other pressing issues with the gameplay such as MatchMaker, heavy armoured tanks, premium ammo spam etc which require more attention than this feature. Also if this feature can be used once a month still I think this will give the premium account players a slight edge over the free account players. The game is already losing its playerbase and this move will further catalyse this problem by alienating the free-to-play players which are required otherwise be ready to wait for few minutes to enter into a battle every time. 

 

Also, I am an average player but still I like the challenge that the random map rotation throws at us irrespective of the tank class that you chose to enter the battle with. Though we want to reduce the RNG but still it is required to some extent in the gameplay which makes it more unique / versatile every time you play.

Why the flying duck is team dmg going to be removed? This will hurt the game on so many levels. Also, if this going to be implement, I think it will be last drop for me. Imagine all the stupid kids harassing you, pushing, blocking etc and there will be nothing you could do. Now, even with the risk of turning blue, I tend to punish players that act like that. Imagine the frustration of being harassed and pushed and all you got is 10 useless reports. I don't know what WG is thinking, but I consider this to be the worst idea ever.

This is pure ignorance. Of  course it would change  something. Namely the amount of prem shells flying around. And consequently also the amount of prem shells flying towards heavy tanks, Which in turn would PRECISELY address the issue.

From the way they previewed it in that video it was basically an 'opt out' of 3 maps you don't like or don't want to play on. That presumably would be applying to all your tank and you probably would not get to change it more than say once a month.  

 

Don't see much issue with it being a premium player feature, sounds like exactly the sought of thing that should be a paying customer 'perk', as it makes the game more customisable to the customer but can't really be called an 'advantage' because it would depend on the tank you have, like I might chose Mountain Pass as a horrible map I don't want to play but Mountain Pass would favour any heavies I play for example.

I consider it a great idea, IMO most of the bad stuff seen in game is caused by team damage. 

 

And the team damage 'penalty system' is stupid, as seen in Claus Kellerman's 'biggest a**ehole' 2018 video where a platoon of FV4005s managed to do like near 13k worth of team damage to their team and didn't get banned meaning they could have done three more shots of team damage if they had wanted, for probably something like 16-17k worth of team damage or like 7-8 tanks worth of damage to their own team before they got banned from the game. Which just shows how stupid the current TK system is.

 

A player driving like a TD or other large alpha gun is able to shoot your for half or even all your HP and nothing will happen to them but a slightly higher credit cost, they can completely ruin your game, for something petty like you aren't spotting the 'right way' according to them in your light, which happens all the time, and they get away with it. 

 

This now completely removes that. 

 

It was great in Frontline, I had some moron T28 proto uselessly pinging shells off me because he thought I stole his kill. 

 

Plus the blockers and trollers most of the time are doing it to get people to TK them and get banned.

 

Not to mention all the arty that does team damage to people.

 

Great change IMO.

I would rather have the thing Mailand showed us in a youtub video on the press acount he was paying on. He could even pick what map he would like to play on.
