 JagdWehrwolf, on 01 February 2012 - 08:27 PM, said: Overlord.
My question about Kwk 36/L56 remains unanswered, so not to break the rules I'll rephrase my question.
Taking a look at proposed complete tech trees and doing some research gave me this summary.
Tank Destroyers - Tier 6
Soviet Union - SU-100 - Armament ranges: Penetration 120 - 175, Damage 160 - 390, within four guns;
France - ARL V 39 - Armament: APX 75mm; Penetration data is scarce, but I think it's safe to assume it at around 100, while I'm not going to try to guess the Damage;
U.S.A - M36 Slugger - Armament ranges: Penetration 128 - 160, Damage 115 - 240, within two guns;
- M18 Hellcat - Armament: M1A1 76,2mm; Statistics well known;
Germany - Nashorn - Armament: Pak 43 88/L71; Stats well known;
- JagdPanzer IV - Armament ranges (excluding howitzer): Penetration 106 - 138, Damage 110 - 220, within three guns;
In case of French TD and Hellcat, again I'm assuming that historically mounted guns are gonna be stock.
And now my question(s) is/are: how after completing the tech trees developers are going to keep JagdPanzer IV competitive against other vehicles of its Tier? Could You explain what is intended purpose of Jagdpanzer in current WoT environment or, in other words, what does "works as intended" means? What are Your own experiences with that vehicle and base on them do You really think there is nothing wrong with it?
Regards.

Overlord: Dont remember using "works as intended" phrase as often as some say.
While JpIV can be considered as underdog among other tier 6 TDs, statistical gap is not that huge to pay much attention to it. There are other tier and class combinations with a more significant imbalance to be taken care of.

 FrostDX, on 01 February 2012 - 05:35 PM, said: First of all thanks for your answers. :Smile_honoring:
But some things are still a bit unclear to me:
1) Single repair bill doesn't mean anything, this is true. But it's still a fact that repair costs of VK3001H are higher than repair costs of KV-3. Even here it is listed that average repair cost of KV-3 is 3,6k credits, and average repair cost of VK3001H is almost 5,1k credits. What's so special about VK that makes it so expencive? Now I've checked in that wot.db and it turns out that from all tier VI tanks only VK3001H, VK3601H (it has 100hp more than VK3001H, so I can understand this) and AMX13 75 have average repair costs above 5k.
7) If it is possible for every crew member to achieve rank of a "Major", how come my driver is not getting this rank? He went from 0% to 100% in third skill and all that time he had rank of a Captain (Hauptmann)? On test server I even deleted his third skill, and started all over again, and trained him over 50% and still nothing. I addressed with this issue to the support but they told me that only tank commander can reach this rank. Now I'm completely confused :unsure:
8) Somehow I had a feeling that your sense of humor will kick in this one :D

Overlord: 1. Yup, there is certain inconsistency. We are planning to improve things a bit with repair coats in the upcoming update.
8. Currently you need to reset one of your secondary skills and take it once again to reach the highest rank. Or wait for the new skills to come.

 Hoffmannov, on 01 February 2012 - 05:14 PM, said: Dear Overlord,
i enjoyed the release of the French tanks, were i was looking forward to for a long time,
after grinding up the light/medium line, wich was realy fun to play and added a new dimension to the gameplay i developt an somekind of new playing what makes these vercicles very effective, deu to a non premium account it took me a longer time but had maximum fun.
altho when i am looking into the forums i see manny complain about how strong these tanks are,
and also here in Q&A i see simular thinks, (see the quotes above).
my question is simple and hope not impolite or asked bevore,
but what can you nerf on the french med/light line more then the guns? the armour is weak, modul/crew damage is huge, and i fear a speed nerf will kill them.
but on the other hand, the guns are exactly the reason why i play those tanks, accurate and revolver magazines, will that dissapear?
should i start worry that the french tanks become useless or are it just minor tweaking to balance them better? (especially first quote made me feel uneasy)
kind regards and looking forward to an early reply,
Hoffmannov
PS, can it be treu that the high win rate of lorraine and bat chat is deu to the fact that they are used often in clan wars? or because deu to the heavy to master low tiers that only motivated and skilled players contineu on this line?
my own result are for amx13 75/90 above unofficial stats and my lorrain/bat chat ar below unofficial stats

Overlord: We will handle the adjustment process carefully. Im not ready to announce the details until public tests since change of plans is quote possible.

I'm not talking about a tactical decision, but when it really wouldn't matter to the outcome of the match which one of them i would shoot.
I always thought shooting a tier 5 tank with 300 HP is not the same as shooting a tier 9 one with the same HP. This will change my targeting completely now and for them it's just...some little bug, no big thing.....

May I ask if you can provide numbers on that seperated into this month, compared to a year ago. Also compare tier 5 med income income to tier 8 med income today and a year ago.

Overlord: Those were estimations from 7.1 only. The planned income of tier 5 tanks has always been around 5000k per round for standard account. So it's even a bit high.

View PostNateBlack, on 01 February 2012 - 03:56 PM, said: Overlord, here is a quite long question/ramble on game economy for you:
Recently I noticed (somewhere around 7.0) that tier 5/6 vehicles are very bad from a credit earning viewpoint. Seeing as we now know the credit bonus for damaging high tier vehicles was removed, it is now quite obvious that tier 5/6 just aren't being used like they used to be. The number of tier 8-10 vehicles have increased massively, as well as the addition of tier 8 premiums, players feel like they are being pushed into higer tier games with tier 5/6, giving them a hard time to earn credits even when they do manage to score some penetrating hits.
This make players play tier 5/6 even less, we have evidence that tier 5/6 play far more game where they are on the bottom of the list than they are in the top tier. Tier 8/9 are just so much more common, because we see that if you choose lower tier, you are far more likely to be on the bottom, and you have a far greater chance to earn credits in higher tiers, even without premium. Add premium tier 8 players, and you have a hole in games where tier 5/6 used to be top tiers. Numbers support all these claims, if you doubt that I can dig up numbers for you, but that'll take me some time.

Overlord: It HAS NEVER BEEN in the game. Once again. Which had not been there, could not have been removed.

Quote So now we have a huge numbers of tier 8+ vehicles in circulation. They are just way more profitable than tier 5/6, and players who try to grind credits in tier 5/6 are being punished, pushing them either to quit or climb the ladder to tier 8+.

Overlord: Avg income of tier 5 meds, eg, is 5700+ credits for standard account, for tier 7 meds - approx 2500, for tier 8 - about zero.

Quote Is this the game you want? When you removed the credits bonus for higher tier vehicle damage, did you realize what could happend? I would really like an anwser on this one, and if you are going anwser, please don't make it a two word response.
Cheers.

Overlord: See the above.

Turns out, during the balancing of the in-game economy, the bonus was removed. It just slipped our minds.
Mind-blowing is all I can say.
So guys with high tier tanks don't bother to kill your high tier opponents, go for unlucky Tier 4-5-6 and collect your credits. Posted Image
Works as intended™.

Overlord: It has been that way since the beta, ie the mechanics has worked always that way. The post on credit calculation contained mistake that there was such a bonus.
The destruction of the vehicle itself is not rewarded, you are getting credits depending on the amount of damage done mostly.
This is the fire without any cause really. :)

Overlord: This credit bonus is not active at the moment.
There was no intention to maintain and it has never been a "basic feature", unlike tank moving / firing.

TANK WIN_RATIO AMX M4(1945) 49.18% T29 49.06% PzKpfw VI Tiger (P) 48.36% IS 46.96% PzKpfw VI Tiger 46.21%
and the unofficial RU data sampling 500k random players from the RU server over the past two weeks looks like this:
TANK WIN_RATIO T29 50.80% PzKpfw VI Tiger (P) 49.70% AMX M4 (1945) 47.60% PzKpfw VI Tiger 47.45% IS 47.44%
then what does your data look like that makes it clear to you that the AMX M4 needs an adjustment?
Because looking at the numbers and considering the EU-server average win ratio is 48.95%, one might think other tanks out of that group need an adjustment instead.

Overlord: The figures don't feature avg exp per battle, credits income, premium ammo expenditure, etc. All of these are factors to be taken into account.

**twitches.*** Overlord is out to get me and my precious!
All joking aside, you seemed to have painted yourself into a corner here. There's not much you can do to make the Chaffee better than the AMX, without either rewriting history, or seriously punishing those going along the medium line in the French tree. I can make money without premium at Tier VI, in a tank with better matchmaking than my Chaffee, but fills the same role.
Equally with a little luck I can make money at Tier VII, but can break even. All without premium. Again the tank for fills the same role, but is cheaper to run. That's the underlying problem. The Cahffee is more expensive to run than two tanks that are higher tiers.
This to my mind is a fundamental imbalance and a bit of a embuggerance for the game.
I suppose the easiest way to get around this issue is the M41. Then you balance that in consideration to the French Lights. Of course other nations might ask for a TVI tank. I'm sure you can find a Soviet tank that fits the bill. The Germans are a bit harder, but one of the other versions of a VK2801 could be your bigger tank (TD, or Flak panzer).
Anyway new question: This is a hypothetical.
In the future if a new class of Tank is implemented on top of an existing tree, would the "end of line" tax be removed? For example on the US light tree. If you did eventually add an M41 Light tank, would the Chaffee get normal T5 matchmaking and credit income/cost? What about the buy EXP? Especially for those who brought while expensive?

Overlord: We are considering options you wouldn't even think of. ;)
ps: poor AMX
As for Chaffee, stat-wise it's the best tier 5 LT.

View PostFrostDX, on 31 January 2012 - 08:59 PM, said: A lot of questions, so I'll try to keep them short:
Q1: Why are repair costs of VK3001H so much higher than repair costs of KV-3?

Q2: How are credit earning calculated in CW battles? I heard that wining team gets a % of credits that defeated team earned - is this true, and if true - how much does the wining team gets?
Q3: Have you considered buffing accuracy of 15cm L38? Low penetration is something I can play with, but in combination with bad accuracy it is really painful to play with this gun. Currently it's only good for bullying lower tiers, french tanks and Tiger H, but against some more serious opponent bigger accuracy is needed since it doesn't exactly has the brute force.
Q4: It is said that penetration drops with distance - how much it is lowered?
Q5: Dmg is not affected by distance?
Q6: Do you plan to feed those poor drivers (talking about crew members) in IS-7 so that they can stop "eating" my shells in 0.7.2? (I'm talking about that drivers hatch that takes no dmg, no matter how many times I penetrate it)
Q7: Is the rank of a "Major" achievable only by Tank Commander?
My E-100 driver had the rank of a Hauptmann with third skill @0% (I deleted his skills several times), now he has all 3 additional skills @100%, and he is still Hauptmann.
Q8: Regarding tier 5 lights: T-50-2 is fastest and most agile one, Chaffee has the best gun, but what is the main advantage of VK2801? (besides best ramming potential)
Q9: It is obvious that traverse speed changes when we change engine, but this is not shown in tank specs (eg difference in traverse speed of E-75 with 650hp and 1200 hp engine with same suspension is huge, but it's not displayed in garage) - do you plan to make this change visible in tank specs?

1. Single repair bill is not informative.
2. Same as in company battles, the winner gets 50% of the credit and exp income of the loser.
3. No.
4. Depending on the gun.
5. No.
6. Yes.
7. No, it can be reached by all crewmen.
8. HP, armour, ability to mount 105mm howitzer.
9. Probably.

View PostListy, on 01 February 2012 - 01:59 PM, said: This I knew, but it does raise the question: What's the point of the Chaffee? As a Tier VI Light (AMX-13/75) in the French tree has as good a gun, camo, armour (AKA: non-existent) and is lower in profile than the M24. In addition to all that the AMX-13/75 has a better matchmaking. However its significantly cheaper to run.
Is It time to introduce the M41 Light tank, and give the M24 normal income? You'd make allot of people very happy if you did that.
IF I didn't know better I'd say you're deliberately victimising all the tank choices I make and make them worse than the equivalent! :P

Overlord: Probably it's AMX-13/75 that is OP currently.

View PostZeZergling, on 01 February 2012 - 12:14 PM, said: Overlord, is there a concern WoT is becoming too 'top heavy'?
I mean, a concern that that the playerbase has too many high tier tanks and the ability to play them nearly all the time, to the detriment of the middle and lower tiers?
From my experience playing on the NA server, it seems like the game is becoming VERY top heavy; while playing tier 5 and 6 tanks, the vast majority of battles have a maximum tier of 8, 9 or 10.
I estimate only 1 in 20 games (or less) have tier 5/6 as max.

Overlord: With a good influx of new players and overall credit earning system this shouldn't be a problem in the near future.
