How are things going with physics? When will you add it to the Public Test?

It will likely be testable by summer.

Oh dear god yes! Thank you! :D

Why is the introduction of the Type-62, the WZ-111 and the Type-59 not happening for the EU/NA/RU servers? What’s the reason behind that?

The reason is different for each of these clusters. Moreover, the golden Type 59 will probably never be introduced on these servers.

Maybe I'm a complete noob here but WTH is a Golden Type -59?

You state that you are planning to have Tank Trees for 7 Nations. What are they?

USSR, Germany, USA, France, Britain, Japan, Combined Europe.

Ok......but say my tier6 tank is Polish, and my Tier7 tank is Italian, how do I change my crew over? Please don't tell me I need to get a new crew for every tier....

I remember, that some Developer promised a map with a secret facility on it, where Ratte would be standing somewhere as a part of décor. Are you working in that direction?

No, we are not. Sorry, it was a joke.


Awwwwwwwww......C'mon dudes........we aren't going to get the Ratte to play with, Can't we at least blow up it's testing facility....?

It is literally the gold-painted version of the Type 59, and it's only available on the Chinese servers (pic below). It's basically a Type 59 that makes much more than regular Type 59s. Also the price tag, if converted to USD, will be a little over $600 (that last zero is not a typo btw). In all fairness, it's intended more as a limited edition tank as I heard some were given out for a contest or a lottery or something, but probably placed in the store with exorbitant price just so that people that really want them without winning contest or lottery can still get them.

They sure don't answer much in those questions.

Yes, in a future update (without any specifics)

No, we do not have plans to add that.

I find nothing wrong with the S35 actually. The Pz V/VI on the other hand .... after 400+ battles I can't bring myself to watch it's win rate drop any further.

Excellent.  The horns are a good idea, a good way to quickly signal those next to you, that a lot of whiners complained about for no good reason.

"Since you plan to add the Sturmtiger, I have a question. If introduced as an SPG, will its shell have physics identical to the rest of SPG shells or will the rocket mine will have different flight physics? The case is that in real life the flight of such a mine was rather chaotic."

--The Sturmtiger will have gun firing physics similar to the current vehicles of this type.




I see what they did there....I know wargaming doesn't like giving "committed" answers, but rarely have I been so botherd by one (Don't get me wrong I understand the logic, I'd do the same thing).  Namely, due to its wording, they are not saying weather it is a SPG or TD.  

By this type I would like to assume they mean "assualt gun", and compared it to the KV-2 in the past as a "similar" tank.  If that is the case, it implys that the Sturmtiger is going to be a direct fire weapon with standard.....direct fire shooting, like current assualt guns in game (KV-2, ISU-152, Stug, Sherman 105mm)

However, it can also mean "this type" as the type presented in the question, which is SPG, meaning it can have an indirect shell like....all SPGs.


Hurrrrrrrrrrr, I was really hoping for clarification on this as I've long advocated that how you aim that tank will make or break it.  Maybe I'm just thinking too far into it, and maybe it was just poor wording on their part....(or maybe because I just got off work)  I don't know....

At least we got some good solid "yes/no" answers....that's always good.

Sorry, when it comes to vetting some of these questions, there needs to be some stricter criterion. A few of those can be found on the forums already or are borderline retarded and are wasting space for more valid questions.

I don't understand why they are set in stone that any server other then the Chinese one will not get the other 3 Chinese premium tanks.

Was wondering that one myself. :Smile-izmena:

The only thing that I can think of is some sort of backroom deal with the Chinese Govt to allow Wargamming.net to operate in counrty. :blink:

Otherwise from a business standpoint, well, its just  :P:P:P:P

Will you add a counter for the ‘Master Tanker’ achievement like the one for ‘Hunter’? It will allow us to know how many times we have killed the various types of vehicles.

It sucks that I can't find who asked this question, I hope he sees this. There is a WoT App called the dossier tool that has a counter for that, it shows all the tanks you have killed, along with all the tanks you need to kill. Here  you go.:Smile_honoring:

Every vehicle has a weakness. The "r2d2" is the weakness for the KV-5.
