Developer Q&A

When will we see the Krupp Steyr WT and Pz III K premium tanks on console?

You’ll see the Pz. III Ausf K Tier 5 German Medium tank very soon, like less than 2 weeks. The Krupp-Steyr Waffentrager German Tier 7 TD will be coming in two flavors in January and February.

In a previous Q&A it was mentioned you were talking about Free XP Premium Tanks, any progress?

Being able to purchase select Premium Tanks for Free XP instead of Gold is currently in development. It should show up in the next release or the one right after that. So late this year or very early next year.

When will we get to see actual armor values instead of ranges in the armor viewer?

I don’t have an exact date but just looked up the ticket and raised the priority of the request.

Any plans to do a trade-in system for premium tanks?

The Premium Tank Trade Up program is in the final stages of testing and you should see it launch before the end of the year.

Has any thought been giving to selling premium skins like other games as well as tanks? For example the Banshee Comet skin purchasable to apply to your tech tree Comet, no XP or Silver boost just a purely aesthetic skin.

While desire for the feature internally is high, the cost of development of such a system has kept the feature on the back-burner for now.

When will we see French Heavies and FV217 Badger?

Sometime after the first of the year as the rest of this year is seeing the new Soviet Heavies and the new Polish nation tanks.

Is WG looking at either changing the way PMM tanks get viewed in the new platooning system or eliminating PMM tanks on console?

We’re looking this over now in combination with a new matchmaker.

Will WG be selling crew customization for silver as they did when they came out or was that a one and done event?

Don’t see any reason we can’t run that promotion again. I’ll ask the events team to look into it.

Do you have a strategy in place to win back old players and attract new ones?

We have campaigns we run on all platforms every month for new users and winning back old users. It’s a weekly stat we watch closely and are always making adjustments to the campaigns.

Is NA on the Chicago servers that were talked about in May yet?

Yes, all of North America is now playing on the Chicago servers for both Xbox and PS4.

Can we get old military hangar garage back as an alternative garage, so you could choose between new Mercenaries themed jungle garage and old "classic" garage?

Right now we don’t have a system for more than one garage at a time. It’s something we are looking into though so we could make all sorts of custom garages for players to choose from.
