Developer Q&A

What is your key demographic?

Largely the same as Xbox Live, 18-45 year old males.

Any plans to add earnable Tokens that allow you to bypass one Mercenary stage of your choice?

That’s a cool idea that I’ll ask that team to look into.

Are there any plans to release a normal paint scheme version of the King Dragon?   

I don’t think that’s come up before but I’ll suggest putting it in the Roadmap.

Do you plan on changing the Platoon rules for PMM tanks so they can platoon with a tier lower than their tier?

That’s a bit TBD at this time.  There are some more matchmaking changes in the works that may affect how we handle that.

When will we see better and Stricter MM Parameters like Tank Type/Tier/Autoloader balancing in games? 

We would love to but with 5 classes, 10 tiers, special rules for Arty, Scouts and PMM already adding more complexity to Matchmaker would result in longer matchmaking times and higher chances of lower quality Matchmaking, not better.
