Developer Q&A

And now, it's time for another Q&A session with PAINGOD and MaxChaos24 from the development team in Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore!

Do you have a plan to add TS-5, US tier VIII TD?

  • [PAINGOD] I’m sure we will but no plans yet as PC just released it.

When is PAINGOD going to write a blog or make an appearance in Weekly Stream?

  • [PAINGOD] Well I write for this column every week. I stopped doing the blog as I could not possibly respond to all of the posts which made me feel bad. I can surely show up in the Weekly Stream if you like, I just figured you’d all like fresh faces and I always have plenty to do.

Could you please provide us with data about Pz.Kpfw. V/IV, Tiger 131, and Absolution vs. the AVG for their tier and class.

  • [MaxChaos24] Here are the charts looking at the Players Win Rate (Horizontal Axis) to Tank Win Rate (Vertical Axis)

Will you ever look to re-balance tanks that you have nerfed? I.E. The AMX 30B?

  • [PAINGOD] We are always looking at tank balance and especially follow up on tanks we’ve made changes to. The AMX 30B is still performing above average currently even after the changes we made.

On PC the Type 61 received an HD update along with the STB-1. Is there a reason the type 61 did not receive the updated HD model when the STB-1 did? If balance is an armor update that is not needed, is it possible to get the new visuals for the Type 61?

  • [PAINGOD] Right now the Type 61 is our own HD model. PC updated their model in version 9.21 after the one we are on right now which is 9.20.1 so it will get its update when we move up.

Just wondering how many users (%) switch the radar mini-map to the square minimap, and would it be possible to make the square mini-map default for users?

  • [PAINGOD] 61% use the default radar, 39% use the minimap

Would we see fully destructible environments like the Mech mode for the normal game?

  • [PAINGOD] Fully? Probably not. The Old River City map was much smaller than our normal maps which let us pull that off. I think you’ll see more destructible objects going forward but not a map that can be completely flattened. That would also result in there being no cover which is probably not as fun in a single life tank battle.

When Kanonenjagdpanzer 105 will be released?

  • [PAINGOD] Pretty early summer of this year.

Are there any plans for Caernarvon Action X and Excalibur being added this year?

  • [PAINGOD] Yes, both will make their debut mid to late summer this year.

Are there any plans to add more War Stories?

  • [PAINGOD] Not at this time.

Do you have any plan to provide the full information, such as Patch Notes, in the game client instead of having to visit a website to read the full details?

  • [PAINGOD] I was just thinking that the other day while looking at patch notes for another game. Why don’t we do this?

Are we going to see Matchmaking changes for platoons so that platoons get matched against the same tier platoon?

  • [PAINGOD] I can file a ticket to investigate how feasible it is with our current matchmaker. I think I’ve mentioned here recently matchmaking changes are currently on hold for a few reasons.

Is there any chance of having an in-game leaderboard for Top 100 players in every tank?

  • [PAINGOD] No current plans. We can file a request and see.

Any plans to add the Krokodil E100?

  • [PAINGOD] No current plans. It actually never came up before, I had to look it up to know what it was. We’ll add it to the new tank request list.

Are there any plans to change spawn locations on Erlenberg?

  • [PAINGOD] Looked it up and the map is pretty balanced for all game modes except Team Destruction. So, we’ll update the spawns for that mode for sure.

Any plans to introduce a Plain King Dragon?

[PAINGOD] I don’t think that’s come up before either, as far as I know. We’ll add it to the new tank request list.
