- historical battles mode (Kursk, Balaton operation, Ardennes)
- graphic changes: new shaders, allowing for more realistic graphic sufaces (wood, metal etc.)
- following models will be available in HD: T-34/85, IS, T-54, Panther, Tiger I, Maus, Sherman, Hellcat, M103, Churchill I, Centurion 7/1, Tortoise
- turrets flying off during ammo rack explosion
- active independent suspension (each wheel reacting on surface)
- new graphic settings window
- fixed following maps for better gameplay balance: Serene Coast, Pearl River, Malinovka, Severogorsk
- improved soundtrack quality

Still not seeing stuff that I think is most important (meaningful changes to the MM, removing troll platoons, light tank overhaul, useful tutorials, etc.).  However, as others on the reddit thread mentioned, you can see the influence of WT on WG's development cycle.  Competition is always a good thing.

 

I'm going to call this right now - these Historical Battles will be as rare as Confrontation is now.  With the majority of players in German vehicles I bet you'll have to wait forever to get any of those scenarios set up.

HD Maus model was a priority?...

 

Or was just easy to upgrade.... not much difference between a low- and high-fidelity model of a rectangle :D

Turrets flying should be an interesting change.

 

I'll be interested to see if the map tweaks include removal of significant amounts of vegetation ala the previous map tweaks.   

 

Still no Waffle nerf.

 

Have been in only two confrontations since release.  Last week I even did the thing where u turn-off other match options (encounter and assault) just to see if it would land me in more.  Nope.  Still just the two.

I turned off other match options, got confrontation and standard match on circa fifty-fifty. Tier 5-6 (M4, T1 HT, Hellcat ;)) and 9 (T54E1, M103; yep, statpadding). Maybe it works on EU server, maybe it works with US tanks.

Something on the "The Wargamer" today about WG plans for WoT in 2014:

 

http://www.wargamer....-world-of-tanks

 

 

 

February 27, 2014 — Wargaming today released the trailer for a World of Tanks developer diaries series, focusing on major improvements the game will receive in 2014.

“It will be a truly transformative year for the game,” said World of Tanks Producer Mike Zhivets. “Enhancements planned for 2014 touch upon the very core of World of Tanks, and each of them will overhaul the look and feel of the title, inducing the tank combat experience we deliver with a whole new level of realism and immersion.”

Throughout 2014, World of Tanks will receive a revamped graphics renderer, adding a greater level of detail to vehicle models and providing for a more realistic gaming environment  [I added the bold and underline stuff].  The technical enhancements in the game will also extend to its physics engine, introducing a highly responsive gaming environment, dynamic suspension, blown-off turrets and damageable small parts, while its gameplay will be enriched with the highly requested Historical Battles and a new meta game functionality—Fortified Areas.

The company will explain each new feature in greater detail throughout the series of developer diaries.

Ive gotten a few confrontations. 

 

Im thinking the Historical battles will be selected and not part of the random circulation like company and team battles?

 

Looking forward to popping turrets.  Hatch volcanos would be just as graphic.

Looks like never at this point:

 

 

- multi-gun mechanism was postponed to year “who-the-fuck-knows” (SS: as in, shelved)

Which is odd because I was under the impression they were going to have something similar in WoWs and simply port it over to WoT.

Once upon a time it was supposed to be implemented with the French tanks when they came in...

yeah well given how much of a clue the useless morons that run this game have, id be willing to be my comments are just as likely to have an impact on their decisions as the best constructed argument ever made.

Of course. The alternative is too painful to consider.
 
If WT was nerfed seriously to not kill you in one burst when you go out in the open alone, then in few months you would be telling how the clueless completely killed it. Let's call it AMX 50B syndrom ;)

Umm... huh?

 

First, the 50B was never on the level of the waffle.  From the start it actually had a lot of weaknesses.

Second, No one ever asked for the Waffle.  Its historical basis is tenuous at best.

Third, If they nerfed it to where it was balanced I'd be saying 'about damn time' and not lamenting the change.  Comments like the one above make me wonder if you even read what I write.  We don't need two bojan's in this forum.

Fourth, the entire line is horribly OP and every way you can measure that shows it to be the case.  Whoever is responsible for balance for this game is just bad.  If you can offer a well thought out argument for how the waffle line is a good thing for the game I'm all ears but I know such an argument doesn't exist.
