"Will you do something about the E-75 front hull armour? It’s almost impossible to hit it with a 260mm penetration gun even though the armour is only 160mm."

    "Not just yet, but we will."

Great, there goes the only tier 9 heavy that could face the IS-4. I hate to cry russian bias, as I wholeheartedly believe it is not true, but I am not so sure now...

I love how the devs time and again ignore the things the players want and instead focus on making sure that no Russian tank is ever at a disadvantage.

"Will there be any weaponry changes in American heavy tanks?
  • Currently, we will not be adding anything special in terms of weaponry to American heavy tanks."
-  Instead they are lowering the effectiveness of AP rounds in v.7.0 to make them even more useless.


"What will happen to camouflage, bought for gold after the 7.0  release, once adaptive camouflage is introduced? Will the latter  automatically become adaptive or is it an all-together different  category at a different price?
  • Adaptive camouflage  will be a consumable, which you will have to purchase and use as a  consumable. Once in use, it will adapt any camouflage to a map allowing  you to be more discrete. Though we will not be introducing this in 7.1."
-  Cuz if there was one thing that EVERYONE was begging for it is MORE invisatanks


"In one of the video guides about tier IX heavy tanks,  it was  mentioned that a machine gun would be removed from the VK4502(P) front.  Will you be doing something about it in the next patch? My enemies like  to shoot this machine gun off and they are getting better with every  try.
  • We will leave the  MG where it is. Try to intimidate your adversaries with its size  instead. Perhaps then they will show you more respect!"
-  Instead of fixing that glaring weak-spot, that shouldn't be there, they recommend that you point that weak-spot at the enemy and dare them to shoot it.


"Will you do something about the E-75 front hull armour? It’s almost  impossible to hit it with a 260mm penetration gun even though the armour  is only 160mm.  
  • Not just yet, but we will."
-  So they are gonna make the IS-4 and IS-7 bounce way more incoming rounds from every direction and then "fix" the one German tank that actually bounces shots from the front.


"Will you increase camo in the Jagdpanther, Ferdinand and Jagdtiger?
  • Aren’t they nearly perfect already?"
-  This has to be a joke...  the JadgTiger especially has shit for camo.  A T-54 on the move, in the open, firing his gun, will always have better camo.  So NO... NO NO NO NO NO NO NO... Not even close to perfect


edit: i also totally agree with W0lfy's post below me. Well said.

Has this set of questions been compiled and answered by a person different to usual?
Some of the replies to questions (that many players take seriously) have been turned into a joke with silly or flippant replies, which in-turn is disrespectful and detracts from the concept of the the 'Question and Answer' series.
Rather than make fun of players questions (and what they consider legitimate concerns), please leave those ones out and attempt to answer the questions in the usual detailed manner rather than brief or joke replies.

Just one example:

Quote

Will other tanks than the French tanks be added in the 7.1 update?

    Most certainly. We are determined to expand and introduce new tank trees. The more the merrier.
What is wrong with answering this question in a detailed serious manner?
Many players are very interested to know when the Russian and American tech-trees will be updated.
If you are "Most certainly" adding tanks other than French ones in 7.1, what will those tanks be (obviously not new tank trees as you suggest) so are 'non French' tanks going to be the changes to the Russian and American tanks?

Looks like I'm almost done with this game. Despite my obsession with it, these devs are totally ruining the game.
These "You Ask, We Reply" things are the only way, it seems, that the devs actually listen to the community.
They need to be working on the problems, not adding new stuff and ergo new problems.

If any, what new tanks will be added in the 7.0 update?

where where these questions compiled, i never saw the thread in this subforum compiling questions anymore....

apparently not fast enough, it's too little too late, i'm sick tired of those fantasy E75 tanks bouncing my T95 monster gun unless they are perfectly still, looking the other way and by sheer luck the shot goes to where i aim it -lower hull-(those witha T95 know how bugged the gun is) and even then, pray it doesn't bounces.

so yeah, it needs a fix urgently, it should be being fixed for 7.0, not for some unknown point in the future....

You sound stupid, IS4 has awful armor for tier 9 (excluding T34), KTs pierce them no problem,Lowes pierce them no problem, they're slow, they have the lowest HP... Devs...E75 IS FINE, IS4 NEEDS MORE HP!!!!!

Only idiots who auto aim, Or aim at the upper hull of the E75 complain that it bounces... Any gun with more than 200mm CAN pierce its lower hull EASILY! Stop complaining some tanks are OP...

Compiled from the RU forums I hear.

And after months of seeing T95's taking E75's down by 30-45% HP in a single shot? Yeah, I call BS.

E-75 bounces everything?  :blink:

There are numerous tanks that can pen the front of an E-75.  Even the supposedly weak 88/L71 can do it.

There isn't a thing wrong with the E-75.  It's armor, mobility, and armament are very well balanced.

Physics are still a work in progress. We chose to release updates while we polish the physics system, rather than delaying finished content.

Answers like these are unacceptable:

"We are always working on skidding, slipping and being stuck. Haven’t you noticed?"

Ummm, no I haven't noticed because I still get stuck and it ruins my game match when I do.

"We will leave the MG where it is. Try to intimidate your adversaries with its size instead. Perhaps then they will show you more respect!"

This is a whimsical response and shows a lack of respect for the community.  It sounds like you don't even care what your answer is.

I appreciate the Dev Q&A, but please take them seriously or don't answer at all.

One last final note.  For the love of God, please add the freaking horns.

Well in the case of the mg portal it was a problem in real life. so just like the driver hatches on some tanks, the lower hul on the US T34 and R2 on the KV5 there being left as is for now.

The only real answer for that, to be honest, is "No." You have to remember that many of the game designers do not speak English as their first language. They were not intending to sound insulting with the response.

Where are the questions gathered? Do you randomly select answers from Q&A threads? Some questions are much more important than the typical questions that are answered.

Open a thread asking for questions, close it when you have enough to make a good Q&A, and then answer ALL questions. Its the inconvinent questions that are the most pressing, IMO.



I don't think we've ever had an official reply to the question asked numerous times about whether or not the devs don't change premium tanks (even the matchmaking for them) because it would change what the person payed for.
