  1. Hey Overlord, do you think the penetration of the E-25 is adequate for a tier 7 TD?
    I know it has a really high RoF, but firing fast without penetrating the target doesn't do much good.
    By the way, any words on the new german TD line? I've heard it is coming on 8.8. Is it true?
    There were also some rumors the new WFT E-100 will equip the JagdTiger's gun but with 6 rounds autoloader.
    Which tank should I pick to start grinding for this new line?

    1. vk3002 db has the same pen and is rather good atm, so if it is sufficiently mobile and camo'd it will be fine I guess

    2. It also has a turret, HP and armor.

    3. Afaik, German tds won't come in 8.8, most likely - one-two updates later.

  2. New winter map! Yay.
    I'm gonnna love the british arty and I can't wait to get them.
    I wish that the video didn't have an ending.
    Btw. Overlord, when can we expect the test for this update?

    1. It has just been deployed to supertest. Usually the update is tested there for about two weeks before public test is launched.

  3. ...this is starting to annoy me... WG should give us some new game modes, a tons of new maps... and day/night cycle with weather...

    And a IQ test for players would be nice...

    1. 1. Modes were never planned for 0.8.7. This is in pre-production right now.

      2. Planning to release at least one brand-new map per update.

      3. Working on day/night/weather thing.

      Delete
    2. And what do we do for the IQ? The matchmaker is deeply flawed... Before new vehicles, new maps and new sounds, it's much more important to have an enjoyable game.
      Yesterday I was in a game where the enemy had 8 heavies, our team had only 2. Whatever, maybe that wouldn't be a problem, but... big BUT! All my team rushed, game was over at 15-2 for the others. It was the most unbelievable lemming train, and a real killfest; the idiots were basically crowding in front of concentrated enemy fire, one by one...
      Solution: leagues based on Win Rate. Or at least multiply the „weight” of the vehicle with the WR stats.

      Delete
    3. WR is easy to inflate - you simply pimp out your tier 2 and go stomping newbie teams. It's not an effective gauge of how good someone is.

    2. Agony of WoT. People are asking for corrections to really old and disturbing issues, and all we're given are new vehicles/maps/sounds. Really?
      It's like coming down with cancer, and the patient is treated with cookies. It might make him feel a bit better right now, but he will surely die if the cancer is not removed.

      Delete
    3. Somebody see today Formula 1 ?...agony and end of Pirelli...Thats was happened when dont listen the players who actually PLAY, but only for money and circus. Go WG go...your way is paved !

  5. It would be kind of funny if the Maus couldn't fit under the new map's bridge because it's too tall to fit under it....

    It would be hilarious if the Maus BROKE the bridge because it's too tall to fit under it....

    It would by hysterical if the Maus broke the bridge by trying to cross it!

    I say these three things as I own a Maus! Would Wargaming ever consider implementing bridges with weight limits? It looks kind of silly to have a Maus and a JagdPzE-100 on a wooden bridge on Peal River.

    1. At least to consider this we do need full physics up and running - that's smth that might be possible when we integrate havok. More destructibility to all objects and tanks - right now our possibilities are limited.

      Delete
    2. What system is used to prevent small tanks from running over objects that larger tanks can?

      Delete
    3. Basic destruction criterion - weight*speed

    2. It will be replaced completely.

  9. The maps with the new render are always too bright, I would see dark maps too.

  10. 0.8.7. version, I think that there will be again many forum spammers who are blaming You, devs, for OP Arty, Invisible tanks, too accurate guns.. I think that forum itself needs some organisation, so maybe section where players could say that they exactly do not like in new versions or current versions.
    Anyway, 0.8.7. seems good to me. So what all can we expect in this new version? I hope that you know for bug which sometimes happens trough battles, disallowing players to switch spectator camera from their tank on another player.
    Will there be in future 2 versions any new stuff regarded to game play, not only maps, new tanks..?

    Kind regards to Developers and to Overlord, Hopefully, I will meet you one time, at least on battlefield, or somewhere in air, if you know what I mean(WoT, WoWP, or even in WoWS, when alpha test comes out, if I will be able to enter in it)..

  11. Finally, more British tanks. Still no Firefly or Achilles.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Awesome! Looking forward to v 0.8.7 very much.
    Overlord, I just have 2 quick questions.
    1.) Are Developers working on any new tank customization options? For example: different inscriptions, logos, camos etc?
    2.) Long time ago there were rumors that players would be able to paint their own tanks (basically creating your own camo). Are the Developers thinking about implementing this in the future versions.
    Thank you very much and keep up the excellent work Overlord.

    1. you can edit the *.dds file and create your own camo, since CBT 2010

      Delete
    2. ...but not so that others can see your masterpiece in game WITHOUT them having to install your files as well. There will be no "design your own camo" feature in this game as the demands made on WarGamings servers would be too high

  13. Looks like an interesting update. I may have to buy my 23rd premium tank in the E-25.

  14. I have waited for the E-25 since it was first mentioned. When was that? Two years ago? Too bad it is released now that I long since have tired of the game.:P
    WoWP could be fun, and i will try it out. But i may not get the E-25:(

  15. Sorry Overlord, you seem from the gods that descend from heaven and talk to poor mortal us, one of the few that seems reasonable.

    And speaking about being reasonable, the general feeling on WOT population right now is that WG is tweaking too much the game without proper testing (and no, im not an arty player hehe) and older/veteran players are starting to think that WG is soooo concerned about 50% win ratios on maps...tanks...players...etc that we are all going to end playing mirror maps with different tanks that perform all in the same way.

    I love this game, but i am a two year old veteran player that needs to keep interest going else new pastures will come along. Im sure WG already thought this, and yes..maps and tanks... start to feel the same... i have 95% of ingame tanks!

  16. Overlord, can you tell me when WG fix the problem with nvidia drivers. It started year ago and its still not fixed

    ReplyDelete
  17. Overlord: There had been talk about "rebalancing the American tanks" in 8.7 in the prior weeks. It might be a rumor. Could you comment on this? Thank you.

  18. If you remove T–50 2, a lot of paying players leave, it is the intention to lose money?

  19. T26E4 SuperPershing in 8.7 isn't change or what?
    Previous information said that before changing parameters will be possible to test the new T26E4 and decide whether to sell gold before the update refund or leaving the garage and acceptance of new parameters

    ReplyDelete
  20. Hey Overlord can you please tell us why WG hate the British tank tree so much? why they have no interest in fixing HESH? or any of the other problems and why the new arty top tiers are have worse stats than every other arty in the game?

    Its getting a little boring the insults the British tree is getting.

  21. Can you answer me why LOWE is so expensive being not the best tier 8 premium ?
    I will post untill i got an answer .

  22. When will I be able to get a refund for my Super Pershing?

    1. Yepp i sell it too asap!!! Its trash since gold ammunition is for credits to have. And when u nerf it, it will be the weakest tank in its tier class.

  23. Last year it was stated by WOT that there will come bigger maps... when will this be? And why does it take that long? Cant await a 30vs30! Also since the 8.6 patch the number of super-TDs in game increased that much, that it is a horror to play a heavy tank... will this change in the near future? I think it makes no sense to play an E-100 when both teams have 6-7 TDs like JPzE100, FV215b-183, T110-E3. Those games end in camping and become more and more static. A cap of all kind to 3 of a kind makes in my eyes more sense than stupid nerfing to death like u did with arty.

  24. There are plans to change the turret of the E-100 for the HenshelTurm, the current is aesthetically horrible.
