Just get a KV with the KV-2 turret, boom free slot when they implement the Russian changes. get a KV-3 and a IS-4 to get even more free slots.

Also Swedish tanks in the European tree, hmm had to look those up.

Strv 74... DAT TURRET. (and it just barely fits into the games timeframe I think)
Oh man, that does look pretty sweet...do want!

Thanks for removing my post and proving to me that people who speak against the will of the great Totalitarian Wargaming Empire will always be edited out. I don't care if this is their forum, we still have the right to express our opinions and speak our mind as American citizens. My opinion is that they really didn't tell us much with this information, and it seems to be shared by more than a few here. If they're going to go so far as removing people's posts and pretending they never said what they said, perhaps they should do it to people who aren't going to notice, and THEN CALL THEM ON IT.

Russian tree is actually a bit thin, how about the Object 279 as a Tier X?

So I am guessing that the British TOG II is going to be the British T10 heavy. Am I right?
Probably not, since the TOG II would have pretty terrible performance for a tier 10. It carried the 17 pounder in reality, which was only a 76.2mm gun despite its high armour penetration. Such a gun would be pretty much useless at tier 10. Also, the mobility was awful: max speed to rival the T95 for slowest tank ever, and not even 7.5 HP/tonne.

The Conqueror was a contemporary of the M-103 and T-10, which are both to be added as tier 9 tanks, so it will likely be the British tier 9. The British tier 10 will probably be some upgraded/upgunned variant. The FV215b was supposedly listed as the British tier 10 in the leaked alpha tree, but that may have changed.

WoT is based on "Analog" tanks. That means no guidance systems, no night-vision, no "smart weapons." Chances are, the threshold will maybe be in the mid 60's at the latest. After that, tanks began getting "smart."

Some people simply cannot be pleased with anything...

I look forward to these French mid-tier tanks in the medium line.  They sound like they have astoundingly different gameplay compared to the current tanks which is all for the best :3

The Archer was a tank destroyer, or more specifically a self propelled AT gun.

We all know that scouts are essential to win. Tanks scouting were used and we use them ingame. Now I ask, will Armored Cars like Sdkfz 234 Puma and M8 Greyhound be added in future?

How will we control tanks with two turrets? I've been wondering about that, will the cannons be assigned different buttons or will they both be fired with Mouse1? And how will the M3 with turret work, since surely a 20mm fires faster than the 75mm; just wondering.


Simple.

At the bottom of the in-game screen, there is already a selector for shell.

Simply have a division of this into Turret 1 and Turret 2.

For example.

You have 3 shell types on the first turret and 3 shell types on the second. All Turret 1 shells are labled "A" while the latter is designated "B".

To switch shells, you press and hold "Ctrl" and the letter/number designation for the shell. When you switch turrets (E.G. Shell A1 to Shell B1), the view changes so that the movement of the camera corresponds to the selected turret.

Why you dodging me man, I thought we were friends, but this.....its just unacceptable. Heres a pro tip, just answer the damn question or dont bother mentioning it! Look I know you guys have alot of work ahead of you making new trees and maps, but the lack of certainty in your answers creates unease among the gaming community. It makes us wonder if and when half those mentioned items of epic proportions, are going to be released at all in the next 2-3 years. We love all the work you put into this, its just we have the need to know whats next, and when you arent even sure about it we get nervous about how our great expectations will be shot down due to whatever issues may come. Try not looking clueless or "secret agent"(a term for with holding large masses of intel), when posting these Q&A, if you can answer it, post the answer, if not....well we can understand.
