1. Any chance for derp premium tank? Something like M4 maybe?
2. Will WoT someday release premium tank that will fill the gap between 1500-1750 gold tier 5 tank and 7500-12500 credit printing tier 8 tank? Too much tier 8 credit printing tank will hurt the MM.
3. How effective will be the new gold camo and credit camo to raise tank camo? Will the new gold camo give much more bonus than the credit camo?
4. Any plan for gold, garage slot + prem tank bundle again? Something like in the pre ordered packaged?

My understanding is that the gold camo will be "adaptive".  It will pick the best camo for the map you select automatically.  The credit camo you pick what you want.  If you happen to get lucky and get the right one for the map you are on, you get the same bonus as the gold 1%.  If you pick the wrong one you get no bonus.

Someone noticed that the Panther II and Tiger II cost the same amount to repair from 0 health, give or take depending on module damage and such, even though the Panther II has 300 less hp than the KT. Is this working correctly, or is it an oversight from when the Panther II was a Tier 9?

High tier mediums are always more expensive to repair per HP than heavies of the same tier, in particular since mediums are balanced over only 9 tiers. That said, the Panther II did indeed have the same cost per HP while it was still at tier 9, thus I cannot say for sure whether there was an oversight or not.

Here are the numbers for all mediums tier 7+, ordered by repair cost per HP (module damage not included), it's quite interesting:

  • Type 59 5.7
  • VK3002DB 5.75
  • Panther 5.8
  • KV-13 6.0
  • T20 7.25
  • T-43 8.10
  • Pershing 8.6
  • T-44 8.95
  • Panther II 9.4
  • E-50 9.4
  • T-54 9.94
  • Patton 10.80
The Panther I was at 8.75 when it was still tier 8, and T23/Pershing had the same respective values that Pershing/Patton have now.

Also, the E-50 and P2 cost the same per hp, suggesting that the E-50 took on the old P2's number, but the P2 didn't take on the old P1's number. Thanks for the numbers!

One other question I've been wondering about. The Tier 5 premiums are terrible credit generators, worse than their non-premium counter parts in that tier. With my Ram-II, for example, I struggle to get over 15k net profit (without premium.) I can easily hit that in most games with tanks like the Pz4, T1 Heavy, SU-85, or M4 Sherman. At this point, I don't have any real reason to play the Ram-II, as it's not better than non-premiums in any category at all, which makes it a disappointment. Has this been intentionally done, or could we expect a slight increase in credit generation some time in the future for these tanks?

What benifit does Wargaming see tank locking bring to the game?  This is possibly a very destructive move on Wargamings part. Many members of my clan are deeply concerned about this, and its affect on our clans ability to compete in UC.

Overlord only posts in this thread about once a week at the moment. I would suggest that if you have a question post it in the same thread on the eu server http://forum.worldof...stions-answers/ - he's much more active there.

Likely also a little easier for him too since all the questions will be in the same place...

We're getting a nice, juicy special for Memorial Day, right? 5x XP? Doubled crew training? All TankSinatra shots do 10x damage?

Do you mean Veteran's Day?

In the US Memorial day is in May/June.

Can you provide us with an update on patch 7.0 as to whether or not it is still expected for November?  I have not heard any mention of it being on test servers, and with the size of it we expect it to be in test for some period.  The last schedule we heard was 7.0 in November and 7.1 before the end of the year.   This is starting to look less and less likely.

Also, can you update the in development section?  There have been bits and pieces of information as to what is in 7.0 from multiple sources, but I cannot find one set of official patch notes that seem to cover all of the things that have been posted.

When can I expect garage slots to go on sale for 1/2 price again? i bought gold 2 months ago and have been waiting for slots to go 0n sale again and they havent, and at this point my training is stopped for want of new slots.I will wait untial they go on sale or just not play till they do. Many freinds also await next garage slot sale. When will this be?Veterans day maybe? Also was suprised that you ran event for artillery branch birth but not for birth of USMC, which was today, 1775.

Overlord,

First, I appoligize if this has already been addressed..search function for me doesn't want to work.

We are aware that tracers are coming back. My question is what was the reason for removing them in the first place? IMO if beta tracers are put back into this game the complaints against arty will go away. As it is right now, the only thing that arty really needs to fear is a scout. I miss the good old days of playing arty and actually doing counter-arty. Right now they can realistically sit in place a whole match unless a scout manages to slip by the line.

Thanks
