Q:It would be great to learn when the tier VIII premium tank destroyer Jagdtiger with the 88mm PaK43/3 L/71 gun will appear.


A: Generally, we don’t reveal vehicle release dates. Expect it in early 2012.

Saw this in your Q&A section. Does this mean they are doing for the Jtiger what you are doing for the T34 US Heavy? If anyone has any other sources that'd be great...this is the first time I've heard of this  :Smile_honoring:

Thank you for giving us a free garage slot for the french tank when they come out.

Q: It would be great to learn when the tier VIII premium tank destroyer Jagdtiger with the 88mm PaK43/3 L/71 gun will appear.
First I have hear of this. Is the Jagdtiger being move just the the American T34. Is this a different tank?

Q:Do you plan to add maps which will represent real WWI Battlefields? For example: Westerplatte, Normandia, Monte Casino

These are not WWI battles. These are from WWII.

Westerplatte was the first fight between between Polish and German armies during the Invasion of Poland.

I think we all know about Normandia

Monte Casino was in Italy. Famous site of a monastery that we bombed to break up German defenses.

Will the installed modules be displayed on tanks in battle?

    In the garage interface you will be able to see them. However, in battle you will not.

Why not?  They appeared to work quite well on the 7.0 test servers.  It was nice to be able to see if a particular tank had a camouflage net or enhanced view capabilities.  Helped with determining game style.

Quote

Are there any plans to add any of the following camo types:
    For specials
    Give away ones
    Anniversary
    Awards

    We plan to add some camos for Specials, but they will be used by Game Masters only. You can name them – event camo

Can you define the term "Game Masters"?

Will there be provisions for platoons/companies/clans to have special camouflage patterns for use only during the platoon/company/clan battles?  It would be interesting to have all tanks in a platoon/company/clan, regardless of nationality, to have matching colors/camo.

Quote

Will female crews be introduced?

    Yes, it's something currently on the development plan, but we cannot share information on when it will be implemented at this time.

How is this to be implemented?  Will these be a premium option?  Will we be forced to put female crew members in our new tanks on a random basis - luck of the draw?  It seems strange that you would add female crewmembers to tanks that never had them.  

I can see it if a player wanted anime based crewmembers, but that is not current option.

Quote

What about Overtargetmarker? Will the official version be introduced in 7.0 or will you continue supporting the mod?

    For 7.0 you will be able to use the new mode, made by the same author. You can find it here. Later we will add to the client similar functionality.

The link in original post goes to the Russian language forum.  Unfortunately, I do not speak nor read Russian.  What is this OverTargetMaker?  Is there any information on it in English?  We are on the North American server and forum and I'd like to know what this mod does and if it would work on our server.



New question:


Will it be possible in the future to completely ignore a player?  Currently ignore only means we do not hear that player's voice messages.  In random combat this is a useless feature - we wouldn't hear them anyway.  Why can't we have the option of not seeing an individual's text messages on the game screen?  This would include their alerts, attention to grid, typed texts, and all other messages.

Ignore means ignore, not still having to see their drivel on the screen.

Can you look into the battle tier assignments for the RAM-II? Most other premium tanks get a beneficial Battle Tier ranking, for example the Type 59's don't ever seem to see Tier tanks unless they are platooned. Hotchkiss and T-127 only see 1 tier above them.

What is the plan with the American Heavy tank line? I have heard the t30 is going to be a tank destroyer and the t34 will be premium? If so will we get the tanks replacing those for free?

They put in a link to some OTM's, is anyone able to get that to work? When I try it, I don't get any OTM at all, so I have to rely on my eyes to see the actual tanks, which is actually much harder than you would think. Anyone else having these problems, or know how I can fix it?

Nah, the JT is staying right where it is, this will be a different premium version armed with the 88L/71 and using the same armor layout, most likely a tier VIII.

Will you look at adding an icon to a tank if it is carrying gold ammo ? We currently have a star for a premium tank so make another for gold ammo. It would allow us to change our play style while facing them

how do you kill tanks that are consistently (in my opinion) in the wrong tier both tier II premium tanks are nearly invincible (I have had TEN CRITICALS and gotten killed by a pxkw 38H, and the new t127 is almost as bad!)?

So at this point it's very clear the initial design timeline you guys put out was....a bit too ambitious, which is perfectly fine.  Can we get an updated version of that but with much less scope.  Like, what all is currently planned in 7.1 that you are reasonably sure will be done in time for it?  I realize giving us a date by no means sets things in stone and would greatly prefer a finished product six months later than the scheduled release date. But having an idea what to look forward to is always nice.
