July 18-24 Poll Results

The results of the latest poll showed the majority of 3239 participants are waiting for new game modes (1487 votes or 45%). The votes were almost equally divided between "more tanks" (805 votes or 24%) and "improved physics" (677 votes or 20%). New features got tiny 8% or 270 votes.

New weekly poll is up.

  2. The very most important is to get better physics!!

    After that, game modes.

  4. Better physics which includes more realistic engine sounds. This would really improve the atmosphere of the game! :)

  5. Regarding the new poll I still think its too early to tell.

    The jagdtiger is the best all-rounder, 704 far superior 1on1. But the T95 I've only encountered once in my Jagdtiger but statwise i'd say its the strongest.

  6. Where is the "new poll"? URL?

  7. The biggest beast is the T95, no doubt.

    But the BEST, is something to discuss.

  8. jagtigers scare the crap out of me...everything else seems more manageable.

  9. So when are the M103 and T110 coming?

    Yes, but will you actually change project priorities to provide future game modes FASTER than new tanks or physics? Or, was this poll just for curiosity sake, and you won't actually do anything different?

  12. T95 is a beast but can be shoved aside by a T-54, it can't turn fast enough and often gets trapped on the side by tanks hugging it.

  13. What kind of physics are you thinking of? Itd be awesome to see tank parts fly off when they blew.. Tanks fly farther when theyre blasted cruising at full speed? Projectile flight? Some days, even though my recticle completely covers the enemy tank, I STILL miss. Drives me crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  14. "New features" is kinda generic, that's why nobody voted for it. If the poll would ask about "Multi-turret support" or "Camouflages", maybe more people would vote for it.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Sure they listen to their own polls, because they think thats good to do. And this was already planned for development a while back so this makes the poll rather pointless.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Q: so this makes the poll rather pointless.

    A: Not really. The poll confirms that we are on the same track.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Q: Yes, but will you actually change project priorities to provide future game modes FASTER than new tanks or physics?

    A: Different things are being worked on by different teams. We can reallocate resources to some extent and will consider this.

  18. As long as we get those new crew skills and perks you promised...

    ReplyDelete
  19. i vote for a crew softwipe then! because when u got 400% crew and just discover there are more awesome stuff to skill u just dont want to buy new crew and grind the shit outta them!

  20. Overlord, hello there.

    I would just like to point out something that I noticed.

    If you add physics, as in making tanks fly off the hill, it would add enough entertainment to keep players busy enough for you guys to make new tanks, fix the matchmaking, the spotting, etc.

    Just a helpful hint.

  21. Hey Overlord,
    Can we get an M1A2 Abrams as a new Tier 10 US Tank? I'm super serial about this too!!

    Yeah, as a Software engineer myself, I can definitely understand the whole "teams on projects" idea. I really do hope you take the poll results to heart and reallocate your resources to speed up the new game modes. The last thing you want is a game to get stale, and the current offering is too close to this right now. More game modes would definitely help to keep it interesting and keep people buying gold.

  23. @Xathanael

    Then German would have their Leopard II, Japanese will have Type 10 and Russians their T-90. :/

    Besides, this is a World War II game, not a modern warfare game.

    ReplyDelete
  24. It is not a WW2 game. The tanks go pre to post-war.

  25. i hope with "better physics" we dont will see t-54 dobule backflip, flipwhip and etc :D Pls stay realistic!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Q: i hope with "better physics" we dont will see t-54 dobule backflip, flipwhip and etc :D

    A: I'm pretty sure we will see all kind of strange bugs once the physics are implemented. The "funny screenshots" topics on the forums will be in abundance :)

  27. My T-54 will be doing 360 turret kill shots in mid air in due time... lol

  28. Q: Is there any plans at all to fix/get rid of Malinovka? If you put that option in the last july 18-24th poll, i believe that almost everyone would of picked it. But i would also like to see new game modes as soon as possible! :)-RazgrizOne

    ReplyDelete
  29. Overlord is there a chance to increase the rate of Himmelsorf?I'm tired of playing Malinovka with 5 tier6-7-8 enemy arties.

  30. hmm, cant vote 4 mooaaar maps :(

  31. why is everyone, in every game, always screaming for CONTENT CONTENT CONTENT?
    I am tiered of this newschool com phenomenon. Every freaking new game does this, adds more and more content, more and more grind, more and more random. Noone cares that all those games live years with bugs that where already found in alpha(beta) testing. Core problems of those games get ignored just to be able to add more content.
    I just dont get it, why people and devs (their manager/bosses what ever) prefer content over badly needed bugfixes and redesigns and reworks of the game itself.

    fuck you com!

    ReplyDelete
  32. @Anonymous

    The reason for more and more content? Player retention. Eventually players get bored of the same old stuff over and over, and will leave. The only way to keep them playing is with new content. Bug fixes don't introduce new ways to enjoy the game, they just fix things that people have learned to live with.

    I agree, however, that the stream of content for World of Tanks could slow down just a touch so they could hammer through the bug fixes / mechanic reworkings faster.

  33. Can't wait for new game modes. Being stuck with random battles for over a year now, makes even 30 mins of gaming hard to overcome boredom. At the moment there are so many variants of tanks, so it would more or less just feel like a new skin. So i do hope it will rather be sooner than later, that we'll get some more interesting game modes :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. hmmmm......think I missed the "fix client" option somewhere

    ReplyDelete
  35. re, comment on it being pre - post ww2....not exactly, but closer to WW2 until the russians get gross enough tanks (but I'm ALL ears for a RATIONAL explanation for the dates beyond the one I've given)

    ReplyDelete
  36. 'not exactly' actually, until the devs give precise dates, that's exactly it. Twenties tanks like the T1 up till things like the T54.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I noticed on the test server that the post mortem bar is still present. Is there anyway to disable this very annoying "feature". It blocks the mini map and gives NO useful information

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'd like to play with completly different spoting behaviour. It should be closer to real battles. So: I see the enemy if I realy see it. I can point it on the map, so my allies can look at this point. But they can see the tank, if they really see it and it is not tracked all the time. If goes into the bushes and trees nobody can see it through the plants or other things. More like in BFBC2 or COD. I know - it makes the game other game and needs new maps design for having fun (flat, desert map would be like shooting ground, the forest would be impossible to find enemies). But it would be interesting to be able to choose such game mode :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. New game modes would be awesome I've read the posts regarding the game modes and the encounter battles and historical battles look like real winners! The game mode I'd really like to see is a Platoon Vs mode! Where 3 or 5 man platoons are all against each other on a large map.
    In regards to the new physics I think some improved explosion effects would be my top vote. Anyways can't wait for 6.6 thanks again for all the info Overlord.

    THE GAME BADLY NEED A DECENT SCOUT TANK TO BE USED IN CLAN WARS.

    THE GAME BADLY NEED TIER LIMITED CLAN WARS OPTION (EG PREDETERMINED TERRITORIES ALLOWING TIER 2-4 AND 5-7 CLAN WARS BATTLES ONLY)

    YOU COULD CONSIDER MINE LAYING TANKS... MINES PAYED WITH SILVER OR GOLD BY CLANS -AND- ON REGULAR SKIRMISH GOLD SPENDED BY A PLAYER ON A MINE LAYED THAT GAVE BENEFIT TO THE TEAM -ACTUALLY DAMAGINGDESTROYING A TANK- TO BE COMPLETELYPARTIALLY REFUNDED ANDOR PROVIDE A VALUE FOR MONEY PAYBACK (SILVER-GOLD-XP)

    ReplyDelete
  41. AND MORE.. THERE ARE ACTUALLY NO SMOKE-SCREENS IN GAME, AND THOSE WERE WIDELY USED. ARTY OR PARTICULAR TYPE OF TANK (MAYBE AGAIN THE SAME MINE LAYER TANK) SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO LAUNCH REALLY EFFECTIVE SMOKE GRENADES TO COVER TEAM MATES ADVANCE OR RETREAT.

    ReplyDelete
  42. MAY I SUGGEST A 4TH MODULECONSUMABLE SLOT WITH MORE CHOICHE IN CONSUMABLESMODULES
    -ADDED FRONTAL ARMOR (CREWS WERE USED TO PUT SANDBAGS AND STEEL RAIL BARS FRONTALLY OVER WEAKEST TANKS) TO BE CONSUMED IF A FRONTAL HIT OCCOURS
    -ADDED MANTEINANCE KIT (AUTOMATIC CONSUMABLE SIMULATING EXTRA MANTEINANCE FOR THE TANK, THUS ADDING A 5% IN HULL AND TURRET ROTATION AND A PAIR OF kmh IN SPEED)
    -ADDED SELF SMOKE SCREEN (CONSUMABLE TO BE TRIGGERED SIMULATING CREW POURING OIL OVER EXHAUST SYSTEM -THAT HOW SMOKE SCREEN WORKS NOWADAYS TOO!- CREATING A SMOKE SCREEN FROM BACK OF THE TANK THAT WONT ALLOW ENEMY TO HIGHLIGHT THE THANK SHAPE WHEN AIMING AT IT FORCING TO SHOOT BLIND TRU THE SMOKE SCREEN)
    -USE YOU FUKING FANTASY ^_^

  43. If they would have asked about multi turret support that would have won. but they suck at making desicions that big. Guess what to all those people stuck with M3 I know how it feels. your a sitting elephant just waiting to be shot.

    1. A few different patch sizes,sandpapercarbon fiber rimsor a metal scraper, and a tube of glue), a set of tire levers, and an air pump.
      Inspect Tire
      With the wheel removed from your bike, inspect ICAbike01 the outer ICAbike01 surface of the tire to make sure there are no sharp objects like a thumb-tack or thorn stuck in the tread.
      Remove Tir
      Remove the valve cap and fully deflate the tube bycarbon bike rimsdepressing the valve stem with the hooked end of your tire lever. There are two main types of valve stems, a schrader valve and a presta valve. This tutorial is based on a schrader valve, but I will be covering the different valve types in another tutorial.
      Now it’s time to remove your tire, one side at a time. Choose a section of tire that is away from the valve and hook one of the tire levers under the bead, directly in line with one of your spokes. Pry one side of the tire bead over the edge of the rim, and then hook the end of the tire lever to the nearest spoke. Insert another tire lever two spokes away from the first, and a third another two spokes away. Now the middle lever should fall out, and you can continue the process. When the tire is loose enough you can just run a tire lever around the rest of the rim to pull the whole side over.
      After you have removed one side of the tire, the other side should come off very easily.
      Inspect Tube
      Now remove the tube from the tire, and try to keepcarbon bicycle rimstrack of where it was positioned in relation to the tire. Inflate the tube to approximately twice its original size. This will expand the hole making it easier to find.
      Listen carefully to the entire circumferenceof the tube; you should hear a hissing sound that will indicate where the leak is. As a last resort you can submerge the tube in water and watch for bubbles, but you’ll want to avoid doing this as you’ll need the tube to be completely dry in order for the patch glue to work.
      Once you’ve found the leak, take note of whether it is on the inner or outer side of the tube.
      If the hole was on the outer side of the tube, inspect the inner surface of the tire in that spot to make sure the object that caused the puncture is not still stuck in the tire. Double check the entire inner side of the tire by running your fingers along the entire surface, feeling for obstacles along the way.
      If the hole was on the inner side of the tube,inspect yourzipp 404entire rim to make sure there are no sharp burrs in the metal, and that the rim tape is properly protecting the tube from your spoke ends.
      Now that the rim and tire are clear, it’s time to patch the tube. Select an appropriate sized patch for the hole. Use the sandpaper or scraper provided in your kit to buff the surface of the tube for an area a bit larger than the patch. You need to buff the tube so that it is no longer shiny. If the molding line is running along the area where the patch is to be applied, you must sand it down completely, or it will provide an air channel. Once buffed, avoid touching that area with your fingers.
      Apply a dab of rubber cement, and then spread it into a thin coat, using your cleanest finger. Work quickly. You want a thin, smooth coat of cement; if you keep fiddling with it as it begins to dry, you’ll risk making it lumpy. The thinner the cement, the faster it will dry. It is very important to allow the cement to dry completely.
      Peel the foil from the patch and press the patch onto the tube firmly, squeezing the patch tightly onto the tube.
