You might not be aware, but yesterday Russians and Belorussians celebrated Tankmen Day. There was a big event in Minsk organized by Wargaming and a Q&A with the Developers. WOT News has published a small part of it, but hopefully, we will get more information soon.

- Work on crew perks/skills is underway, but it’s a difficult and long process to complete. No further announcements at this point. (H: As far as I been told, it won’t be released this year, so Q1 or Q2 of 2019)
- There are planned changed for Tiers V, VI and VII as part of the game rebalance.
- Wargaming is currently working on rebalancing for Tier VIII, then naturally will come lower tiers.
- It’s likely a new Czechoslovak Premium will appear in the game. There was a request for one and a candidate.
- No other regular Czechoslovak tanks will be introduced to the game.
- There are plans to replace more tanks in the future and the same principle will be observed again: owners will get to keep it and get a brand new tank, but still too early to announce which ones.
- No plans at all to touch Grille 15, developers are happy how the tank is at the moment. All rumours about the model replacement are false/fake.
- Soviet tank destroyer T-103 is planned to be released next year, no further details, but Wargaming claims to have a “cunning plan for it.”
- No plans to return General Chat to the game.
- Wargaming has been experimenting with a bridge destruction and avalanche mechanic, but these are most unlikely to ever come to the game.
- Wargaming has no plans to introduce a gambling system to the game.
- On Premium tanks that Wargaming can’t rebalance, there will be a full compensation with Gold. (H: I’m not certain what this is about if Pref. MM tanks or any tank in general, no other details were given about it.)
- Incentives for old players are planned, but only (maybe) for December. (H: These could well be just for RU players, I can’t confirm any plans for other regions.)
