World of Tanks Q&A Digest with FlushDraw

World of Tanks Developer FlushDraw has been doing a few Q&A in the Russian Forum. Instead of translating the whole article, I’ve done a digest of what I considered the most relevant information.

Update: There was a translation error for the Bat.Chat 25t information. Article updated with correct information.

  • No plans to remove Premium Ammunition gold price;
  • IS-6 AP penetration might change in the near future, for now Developers are rebalancing other characteristics of Soviet tanks;
  • No plans to introduce the German TD E-10 for the moment;
  • The purpose of the Bat.Chat. 25t changes were to increase the gameplay difference from heavy auto-loaders and the Bat.Chat 25t. Characteristics of this tank are not still planed for the near future planned to be changed;
  • Trade-In events will always be announced in the game portal;
  • No plans to re-introduce Historical battles for now, Wargaming is busy with other modes;
  • Erlenberg won’t be removed from the game, it will be converted into HD together with all other maps.
  • World of Tanks Blitz is separate project and that’s why World of Tanks Premium Account doesn’t cover Blitz.
  • SPG Class was recently rebalanced, any further changes in the near future will be made if necessary;
  • T-55A will be rebalanced if necessary and if statistics show it’s needed;
  • Personal Missions for SPG Class will be changed if necessary;
  • FV215B 183 ammunition is sufficient for now, if proven necessary to change it, then it will be changed;
  • The probability of being on bottom tier ot top tier depends on the composition of the queue at the time of entry into the battle.
  • Predominance of high tier tanks in the queue increases the chances of getting matched with these tanks;
  • If a player has a few fights as bottom tier in a row, the matchmaker will try to find him a place as top tier. However, if the waiting time for such battle takes to long, then the matchmaker will find any suitable battle for that player;
  • No plans to introduce any fun modes for now, Wargaming is currently focusing all resources to release Frontline mode as soon as possible;
  • Wargaming will review the Leopard 1 performance characteristics, if necessary it will buff it;
  • High one-time damage and high penetration were the reasons behind ISU-152 nerf;
  • Hull traverse speed displayed in the garage is for hard terrain;
  • Changes to Ranked Battles weren’t introduced immediately because it was a test. The necessary changes will be introduced with the second test season;
  • No plans for now to introduce Italian tanks;
  • Situations like this, are a consequence of physics and it’s consistent with reality;
  • Team Damage won’t be removed because it’s one of the game mechanism.
  • Reason why Wargaming won’t disclosure the name of players banned for cheating/illegal mods, it’s because they don’t consider this information useful for other players. Also, it would allow the creators of such cheats/illegal mods, to find how Wargaming detects them. This allows Wargaming to collate it’s own data with their data to improve the internal mechanisms to find them.
  • Player complains about 112 gun, that negates all the recent buffs: Wargaming collects and closely follows the statistics of all tanks and, if proven necessary, makes the necessary adjustments.

      1. Has 0,3 accuracy which would be KINDA (since its the same as the SKORPION TIER 8 PREMIUM) nice if it didnt have the plain worst softstats on any tier 10 medium. (Dispersion is the same as on the 113 so its basically the same gun as on the 113. Try to snipe with that.)
        But it has 1.9 seconds of aimtime…yeah but they feel like 2,5 because of the stated above.
        Has 2600 dpm which would be KINDA (since your shots go anywhere and you bounce a lot cus its apcr) nice (That dpm is kinda bad for a tier 10 medium nowadays) if all your shots hit cus again your dispersion is… EDITED FFS.
        The only thing you have is 410m viewrange which would be nice if nobody used optics, you didnt had the same turning speed as the mutz and you werent as big as some russian heavies which render you able to flank and circle your opponents completely impossible… ooh if only the gun was as good as the mutz… (yeah its sad, I cry everytime) but nope.
        Gun deppresion… 9… which feels nice until you aim at the back of your tank where its actually 5 and you cant aim while retreating like the ******* skodas and everything else can.
        The penetration is… average at 268, you will bounce from heavy tanks a lot, same goes for russian mediums too. They will pen you always since you dont have any armor.

        Hell its so bad at aiming I discarted verstab and put gun laying drive… its horrendous, jesus.

        If anything with the current softstats this tank would need simmilar pen as the Strids.
        With better softstats maybe… nah it wouldnt work. I would like to be an sniping machine that dont requires gold to work.
        Anyway, dont play the Leopard 1 until its fixed. You are better playing an Skorpion Panther at tier 10.
        Thanks, remember Havok, rebalance 2.0 and **** you wargaming.
        (Sadly the people who care most for your game hates you.)

      2. The Object 140 has more armor, better gunhandling, more dpm, same mobility (due to softstats) and roughly the same pen. The only thing the Leo has over the Object 140 is alphadamage (but lower dpm) and 3 degrees of more gundepression. Yes, it has better accuracy, but it’s neglectable and accuracy doesn’t mean shit in WoT, given the shotdistribution and RNG.

        Also the Leo doesn’t fit in the current meta of corridor/city maps. If they want to make it work, they should give it the same softstats as the 140 (gundispersion and terrainresistances) and give it like .28 accuracy.

      3. Unless you actually are a masochist whichs loves to play underpowered tanks, dont care a single **** about your winning rate and all the russian bias going around and enjoy all possible outcomes this game has to offer~
        So bye, im going to play my Leopard 1 ❤

    Can you explain this one to me, I didn’t fully understand it.
    It can’t get nerfed right? Because it’s a premium tank?

  2. “T-55A will be rebalanced if necessary and if statistics show it’s needed;”

    Sure, “weak” T-54 needs buff desperately, but T55A which is just T-54 without armor doesn’t. WG logic at it’s best.

      Lie, I was farming Vk4503 gunmark, and only on the 14th time I got a top tier match…

      1. Yep it’s total bull. Had my record just a couple of days ago. 19 bottom tier games in a row….it would be fair to say I was raging by the end of it.

        The new mm is really really good in terms of balance and all tanks having a role but utterly terrible in terms of consistency….except that you are consistently bottom tier….

        The issue was the very next patch after the new mm where they made changes to the algorithms so the mm would specifically look for 3 tier games. Before that patch you could get into same tier games very often which was perfect for everyone. This has a huge impact at popular tiers like 8 and 10. Tier 10 are not all facing loads of other tier 10 anymore. Instead the tier 8 are being shit on game after game after game. The same applies to tiers 5-7.

        In conclusion this fuck up happened because WG decided to ‘fix’ something which didn’t need it…how surprising….

  3. “No plans to re-introduce Historical battles for now” I really hope they try again and use their new advanced (compared to older) AI for any slots not filled by players. Or have a Historical PVE mode all together.

  4. If memory serves, a few months ago they were talking about moving the IS-4 back to tier 9. When will this happen?

    Like

    1. I think the whole IS4 line tier 8 and upwards will get updates, they aren’t including it into 9.20 as its already a pretty massive patch. But yeah the IS7 is getting a buff and it was already better than the IS4.

      I’m only at the KV4 but I freaking hate that tank, the japanese heavies crush it and most new premiums don’t even have to aim at weakpoints to pen it.

  5. “Reason why Wargaming won’t disclosure the name of players banned for cheating/illegal mods, it’s because they don’t consider this information useful for other players.” – Or because they don’t actually ban cheaters (because they buy premium time) and just give randomly made up number about how many players they “banned”.

    “Also, it would allow the creators of such cheats/illegal mods, to find how Wargaming detects them.” – Yeah, right. Because publishing list of banned cheaters will reveal how they detect them?! Maybe on flat Earth that would actually make sense.
