  • There is a bug that when players change Domination/Rampage mode it doesn’t allow them to press ready after selecting a tank (crew transfers while playing those modes seem to be causing the same), Dev team is aware of it.
  • Storm says that the team is focused on game balance, old problems and old promises.
  • Russian players are sceptic and surprised that Storm suddenly became extremely polite, Storm says that he decided to change this year and hopes to prove it.
  • On players’ complaints and requests to increase the number of maps, Storm says that it’s more likely that WoT will have less maps in the future. Less but better.
  • A player complained that he doesn’t like the new sounds and asked if it was possible to add the old sounds as an option in settings, Storm says it’s not possible because 2 different schemes are difficult to maintain.
  • There is a 9.13 bug that doesn’t allow players to preview their Clan Camouflages, Dev team is aware of it.
  • There is a surprising amount of complaints from experienced players who enjoy to play low tier battles, about the upcoming module simplification of low tier vehicles. Storm says that this was a long desired and coordinated decision with the sole intent to facilitate beginner players.
  • Stalingrad, Kharkov and Windstorm have shown worse FPS performance than other maps at medium settings.
  • WG has considered and deemed acceptable that maps may have different performances due to a variety of reasons. Also, each map is tested on all presets and configurations since 9.1. The team also continuously focuses on improving FPS.
  • Dev team is aware of the minimap bug where it stays locked on the location where the player’s tank got destroyed after switching to a teammate view.
  • Storm showed a screenshot on how the T29’s turret’s 127 mm side armor sightly “crawled” to the roof:

  • Storm says that SuperPershing’s Spring Equilibrator in-game model isn’t like in these pictures due to technical limitations of the tank animation elements:

  • A player reported that there is a bug where the cap circles go missing and resurface in areas meant for other mode (Encounter), unsure if Dev team is aware of it and there wasn’t a final answer given to him:
