– Slava doesn’t like the Rampage mode
– initially, premiums were not intended to be significantly worse than regular tanks, just not as good – it is unclear whether this statement will have any direct consequences
– the corridors are not as easy to handle, since even open maps become corridor – for example one can shoot across the whole map so movement without being attacked is possible only in small areas; heatmaps show that Prokhorovka is a corridor map like this
– the MM is being reworked right now
– the roles/tasks of classes will be made more “obvious”
– Slava was given the task to make a list of current shortcomings of tanks – he wrote 72 pages (only listing, without any solution propositions), which not only contained problems within the game, but also an assessment of various WG departments
– responding to complaints about the useless new maps, Slava wrote that they are trying to bring back an old, experienced map designer whose work was highly appreciated
– “We really screwed up things last year, but everything can be fixed.”
– it’s problematic to assemble the big picture, however it’s obvious that Slava has particular issues about  Pankov regarding his work quality
– on a reminder about PvE, Slava answered that there are certain technical problems, which were only solved recently
– Slava also worked on Master of Orion, he says that over there, work is progressing quite well
– the usual remark “engine’s crap, gib new one” was replied in a way that WG has been working the past two years on a new one
– Pasholok posted a photo of Swedish artillery with a 14-round-drum, likely didn’t mean anything
– answering to the remark “you invented tanks, and they broke them”, Slava said that “not quite, but VERY VERY close, Rubicon had the chance to solve these issues”
– as an answer about the roots of hate towards arty, Slava answered with an already stated sentence: “Because it kills tanks behind cover (which was quite intended), but leaving cover is useless because then they’re killed by everyone else (which was not intended and didn’t happen in the past)”
– Slava tries to push a ranked mode
– Slava doesn’t like cybersports
– to the question: “Old WoT has too much to fix, make a new one,” Slava answered: “That’s another story”
