Gameplay


Q: Will you add any obstacles for the cannon? Right now cannon passes through every object.

Q: Will you match the tank company battles by tier or other criteria?
A: There will be four divisions of tank company battles: up to tier 10 (included), up to tier 8 (included), up to tier 6 (included), up to tier 4 (included). We will also add special limitations for some types of light tanks and SPGs. Each level of divisions will have a limitation on points number (the total number of tank tiers in a company).

A: We will change the reflective spot and a tank’s view sector within the update v.7.0.

Currently not, although in future we might have "super platoons" with 5 users.

Is there any posability that you can make the training room available for just one person? As I am A field commander, I need to be able to go in and plan my stratagy before clan wars. It makes it difficult to plan a battle when I have to wait for another clan member to give up his time, to come and sit there while I devise my strategy.

Thank you,

Do you have plans to incorporate Voice into the Random Battles. It would make team coordination much easier and more efficient!

I have been noticing a large number of tanks now that are way out of period like the T-54 and T-59 which really are MBT's like a M1a2 Abrams. They seem to unbalance the game for the German tanks. Any plans on adding year of origin or some similar parameter to the game to aide in the balancing. It is touch to match 1942 technology to 1960's

Is there any plans to ether nurf the tear 7 and higher spg’s or add an option to choose if you want to play a map with spg’s. is ee a lot of people dislike playing maps with spg’s and I will ad mit I am one of them. they take the skill away from the game especially when there are 4 or 5 on a map if your arty’s are good your tem wins if your artys are bad you loose regardless of how good your tankers are. Arty’s where never as accuret as they are in this game.

I've heard talk that the T34/M103 change is being delayed from patch 7.1, is this true, and if yes - when can we expect a release date for it?

At one point I was enthusiastic about real-world physics being implemented in WoT.  Now I'm not so sure.  I feel that it might turn the game into a tank driving game instead of a tank shooting game.  In other words, you would have to concentrate so much on driving it safely that you would have much less time to think about tactics.  There are many steep gradients in the maps that could lead to tip-overs which would take that tank out of the match.  Are there still plans to implement real-world physics?
