Vallter.

Do you not think the time has come where the XP required to get the perks should be adjusted.

It takes 210,000 to get the first perk, another 420,000 for the 2nd and then keeps doubling from there.

To achieve the total of 9 perks it is going to take 107,000,000 XP. This is an obscene amount that I don't think will ever be reached by any player.

After the 2nd perk has been earned why can't each of the next 7 perks be capped at 500,000 XP or 10,000 XP per percentage point.

I think that by changing this players will find it more of a challenge to get the 9 perks than attempting to get something, that is in my opinion, out of reach.

Please take this into consideration.

Thanks.

In one of the video interviews, it was mentioned that tier 8 scouts are on the drawing board. I know everybody is still in "tier 10 mania" for 7.5, but the more I think about it, the more intrigued I get over the idea. Is it still too early to comment? Any tidbit of information would do really :)

May be wrong place but...

I know going afk isn't cool and can be used to get "free" experience. But can you really get expelled for doing it? I have a 3 month old baby. Sometimes, I have to get up suddenly. I ask this only because some guy threatened just now to report me because I admitted I was afk during a battle.

It's the chronic abusers of this that WoT is weeding out. If you are like me there are times when you have to step away during a map for personal reasons.

Don't sweat it.

Nice specials on the SEA server, did not see the promo code.

Also saw that they are removing the KV5 from the store like they did with the type 59.  NA server won't be far behind on that one.

Why does this game have no realism to it what so ever. Tanks should not disappear right in front of you. In real life war. Tanks would use trees and shrubbery or even buildings to hide. If you try to use trees or shrubbery they really do nothing for you. Will or do you have any plans on the visual aspect of the game

So, since you nerfed HE so bad, why do you even offer derp guns? It's really annoying to do 35dmg with a gun that is supposed to average 400. This is beyond ridiculous

Hey thanks for takin time for this. I was wondering if you guys were thinking about putting in some towed AT units, like the german PAK 40s?

@goosehtr, they have said only fully tracked vehicles. Can't see towed AT unless they are AI controlled.

There is a mod available for the Marder that makes it looks like a PaK 40 if that is what you are after.

I've mentioned this already in the Q&A, but we are looking at ways of speeding up perk experience gain.

I suppose you could say they will already exist to an extent in 7.5, since the 13 90 is being bumped to tier 8. But yes it's a possibility.

Yes, it was announced two days before your post.

What gun are you referring to specifically?

I just started playing this game (so please be gentle) and I got addicted quickly.  I do have a slight issue (besides the fact that I suck) and that is during random battles the matching in the rooms I get is usually 2-3 tier tanks above me.  So even with a tier 3 Marder II I have no chances.  Frequent one shot kills from the front and last night I fired 6 rounds into a Lee while he just looked at me.  Pretty sure he was laughing!  That was one in the rear, two into his left flank, and the rest into his front.  All called for bounces and no penetration.  Is there a way to adjust match making?

Matchmaking is getting adjusted in the next patch to reduce the tier spread in a battle. You'll still see tier 5 tanks in your Marder so the one shots will continue, best to avoid being shot at if you can when you're in a Marder.

Side note just in case, matchmaking is entirely controlled by the server, players cannot change it at all.

Yes, you can have multiple install folders.

It's generally best to not fire at the front of an M3 Lee in a tank lower than its tier, as you'll commonly bounce off of the front armor.

That's generally the case for all low tier (and even middle tier) TDs. ;)

Hello,
I'm playing a Tier4 pzIII tank that was matched against Tier7 tanks. I thought the current fixes were supposed to limit tank matches to 2 tiers above only? ex. Tier4,5,6
