-Next year, each episode of the Front Line will be more self-sufficient. And even if you only play Steel Hunter (Battle Royale WoT), you can get all the rewards. The rewards will be new. SH and LF will have a single progression, which will last a whole year with common rewards. However, playing all episodes or playing forcibly only in LF will no longer be necessary. You can play only in CO or LF and collect all the rewards.

 

– About LF this year: yes, maybe we went too far and there were too many episodes. Next year there will be fewer.

– Now the crew is in a very active stage of development. We collect crew builds, watch and play with them. We will simplify this system and talk about it a bit later.

Q: When you start events, you usually have a lot of problems, Halloween won’s been canceled altogether. Why is this happening and what needs to be done so that everything goes smoothly?

 

– This is our complex internal problem. We are now working on improving and changing some processes. In general, recently our staff has greatly increased in development. And to introduce people, to train, to enter into processes – all this is also a large amount of work in itself. In addition, part of the events was done with a sufficiently large participation of new people. Someone somewhere failed.
– We will try to make the conversion of crews fair and not offend anyone. How it will look in numbers, we still do not know. And even if we miscalculate somewhere and the player deceives us, we will survive this fact, that’s okay. The main thing at the exit is NOT to get imba crews with everything pumped.
– It will not be possible to change the nation of the new crew.
– If the 2019th was more by events, then the 2020th year in tanks will be more by the introduction of new features. Events in 2020 will be less than in the past year.
– Apart from the double-barreled gun, in 2020 there will be two new branches (HT Italy and the second secret).
– When entering a new balance, statistics will be taken into account. There will be a new tab with statistics for a certain period, which the player will see as relevant, and this is much better than it is now. As we see this: going into the profile, there will be two tabs: general statistics and current statistics. And once, clicking on the current statistics, you will remain forever in this tab. Going further into the statistics, you will already be in it. We want to do it as it would be more convenient, but maybe there will be some technical adjustments.

– We do not want to give details of HT Italy yet – there will be very interesting tanks, but two towers will not be there.
– In addition to the two maps already announced for the random in 2020 (Pearl River, Berlin), we have nothing more. There will also be improvements to the maps for FL and various events, such as Halloween.
– We closed team fights forever, nobody played in them. This is the main reason for the closure. And those who played simply farm bonds.
– We are planning a VERY big tournament for a decade of the game. Announcements – at the beginning of 2020. The birthday of the game, I recall, in August with us.
– Now we want to release one more final sandbox, in which there will be all supporting features: new simplified leveling trees, statistics (if technically possible) and all other balanced edits. Let’s see how it all works together, and if everything goes well, plus if a large number of players participate, we will get enough feedback and the feedback will be positive, we will think about how and when to release it. But tentatively this is the very end of spring.

– We have already announced new tanks for the 2020th year. Interaction with low tanks will be improved with him. It will become MUCH cheaper for low LVL, and there will also be some more improvements.
Also cleaning tree development. In a different way, pumping will go from low to high. There will no longer be such an abundance of different tanks at the very bottom of the trees. We want the player to play easier and more interesting.
– The map “Dragon Ridge” is definitely not in the 2020th year.
– A new communication system will be released.
– The number of “turbo battles” will be cut off quite a lot using various tricks with a balancer and a number of other things. Every two times in total as all measures are introduced. And that seems to be the ceiling. But sometimes it happens that one team plays sucks, and the second is good, and nothing can be done about it.

 


– Over the past four months, we have been looking at all the statistics on LT thoroughly, digging, picking (not only on the wheels). With the introduction of the British, even more attention was paid to this, because LT has become more (quantity). There is nothing beyond the danger, but we have different thoughts …

– Cluster consolidation (RU / EU / NA) – this is difficult primarily from the legal side. These are different laws, different rules, restrictions, taxes, etc. The problem is legal, not technical.
Although inside we have already made such a technology a long time ago and even tested it – roaming is called who remembers.
– Adding tournaments (and everything related to them) directly to the game client, we planned for the 2020th year. But, having looked at our RoadMap 2020, we soberly assessed our strengths and realized that we would not have enough strength and we would not have time to make it in the 20th year. We really hope that this is one of the main features that will go at the beginning of 2021.

And here the story is this: there are few interfaces, but it’s very expensive for us to make interfaces. Instead of these tournaments, it’s conditionally easier for us to get another Halloween event, and I won’t exaggerate. With good interfaces, trouble; with how we are doing interfaces now, it’s better, but also has its own technical nuances. Equipment, crew – this is also all tied to the interface. We are sending all our forces there now. There are a lot of new interfaces in tournaments and crew new, and I think it’s clear that we will choose from these two.
– The captured equipment will be rewarded for the Battle Pass (WoT).
Trophy equipment is equipment that has standard characteristics, but they can be improved by bringing them to the level of bonds forever. And it will be possible to remove this equipment for gold.
– There will be no revision of the price for the removal of bonds equipment (200 bonds).
– While changes to the drawings are not planned, however, right now we are working on features that are very closely related to them. It will deliver more useful blueprints to a player who develops a branch. Now they are wallowing randomly. We want to work on this moment. It is necessary to refine the delivery system. In the 2020th, it will be all.

2. Stories about innovations for clan players from Alexei Plotnikov (Competitive Gaming manager, Orc) in the press zone of the Stream of the Year event. Answers prepared by the clan community: WOT Confederation ( vk.com/clansstory ;).

– There will be no new tank.
– Event in January, not earlier than the 12th.
– Term – 2 weeks, at X lvl.
– In the strategic plan, the mechanics of cardinal changes will not undergo.
– There will be new mechanics that affect fights.
Mechanics TEST, will be tested at the event. Everyone will be given the same set of these buns, it will not be possible to replenish / buy.
– The “Workshop” will appear: in it it will be possible to craft premium equipment of LVL 8. It runs parallel to the fame points.
It will be precisely possible to assemble the tanks issued earlier (IS-5, KV-4 of Kreslavsky, Chieftain / T95 and T23E3). How many can be crafted tanks is still unknown.

“Workshop” – event ГК mechanics.
For participating in the battles, both teams will receive various materials that can be assembled into components, from which tanks will be assembled. For a better understanding – look at the mechanics of crafting in The Witcher 3. All participants in each of the teams will receive an equal amount of materials.

"– The number of “turbo battles” will be cut off quite a lot using various tricks with a balancer and a number of other things." Wonder what they mean with this.

Also would like to know how WG wants to nerf the 430U. :)

Lastly, I would like to get the VK72 in CW, would be nice if such reward tanks stay reward tanks.

I don't like the sound of this one bit.

 

It sounds like I'm going to get ripped off the money I've spent training and increasing crew members with different roles. And boy, it sounds [edited]shitty.

It's OK if you get screwed because "The main thing at the exit is NOT to get imba crews with everything pumped."

 

Think of the good of the game balance, not your wasted money.  

 

How can you be so selfish!

 

I'm sure they'll provide players with a "I spent (insert monetary amount here) on crew training and all I got was this lousy badge" badges.

 

This will more than make up for your pain.
