when the tank moves around you can see the wheels/tracks moving indipendently up and down...
also i had some other questions. they were about how does the system works for howitzers. if you have the time read the post. if you don't its ok i'll see it when it will be ready :D

Jeremy Taylor: - We are working on making the track's motion as close to the reality as possible.
- I'll start the individual thread dedicated to the artillery in World of Tanks where you can ask any question you find appropriate.

Jeremy Taylor: - Not in 100% simulator style. We are making the MMO action. Windage calculatings and the corresponding arrangements will hurt the gameplay and fun of the game.
- Of course. We already have different types of locations and will add more.
- Buildings are destructible in our game. But you will not be able to turn the building completely into ruins (World of Tanks is MMO, complete destruction is tooooooooo excessive from technology standpoint). Trees are already knocked down, the same will soon concern hences.

Jeremy Taylor: Let's imagine that you're commanding a clan, say, of 80 players. You open the global map plan divided into multiple zones (mini maps), analyze the situation and decide where to send the tank brigade (say of 25 vehicles) to edge out the enemy from the interested area. If your brigade successfully destroys the enemy on this map, the corresponding zone comes under your control. Another 25 fighting vehicles you may send to fight on another area (mini map). The rest 30 tanks you may use, for instance, to make an alliance with another clan to edge out more powerful enemy from the tastiest territory. The scenarios may be different.

The more zones are under your control the more bonuses and extra features you get. Please ask more questions if something remains unclear.

In that game there are 2 sides who fight with 1 single but very long and moving frontline.
Instanced-only fights would give less immersion than a global map where you can see where the action really is.

Jeremy Taylor: The global map is divided into multiple instanced zones. Our game is MMO; though with outstanding graphics and myriads of cool features but still MMO. Making such a huge persisten global map is impossible from technology standpoint for this day. Anyway many thanks for that question.

Quote Obviously it would be nice to play scenarios where a smaller team would have to defend against a larger attacking team and thus introducing unbalanced battles which could be very rewarding if you still win as a defender being outnumbered (but in better positions e.g. with height advantages or strategically placed defense-structures). But I'm afraid that's a bit too much whishful thinking ;)

Jeremy Taylor: We will introduce many exciting modes and the one you adviced may be among them. Thanks for the vote as it gives more chances for this mode to appear in the game.

MGs on early tanks where later upgraded to the MG42 (the turret MG, anyway), and in some cases engines from early produced heavy tanks where upgraded to larger, more powerfull engines.
Just some ideas...

Jeremy Taylor: This is soooooo interesting question. There's one real challenge about Zimmerit and probably you may help us somehow. We are regularly consulting with military and tank building experts (besides having our own ones) and actually we found no sense in Zimmerit. There's a primary theory about Zimmerit that it was used for protection from magnetic mines. Therefore we actually don't know how we can use it in our game. If you have some thoughts about it please start the topic in our offtopic section or history section so we could discuss it in details (just not to loss the line of conversation on this thread). We would really aprecciate this.

View Postm4rek, on 19 February 2010 - 05:46 PM, said: It would probably be better if it was used for 'prestige only' items? However these would need to be well thought out as one game I played featured tanks based on a similar system, but by the time you got to them, the standard tanks were much better. Perhaps if the prestige items were generic improvements that could be applied to any tank? Like slightly more effective armour, improved engines or drive systems? Or at a clan level, a boost to whatever bonuses they get for holding a territory?

Jeremy Taylor: You'll be given much space for your tank's mechanisms and arms upgrading. But let me repeat myself: all modifications will be done within the bounds of historical accuracy. No chance to install the Tiger gun on your first level Leichttractor. That was not impossible in the first half of the 20th century; therefore this is not impossible in our game. You will be also able to get some extra powerful shells within you upgrading process. They will cost quite much game credits but their cost is also justifiable: during the WWII tank brigades could get only a very limited amount of such extra destructive shells due to their high production costs.

The maps will launch in random style so you could show your warfare skills on different locations. This doesn't refer to clan war mode where clans will fight for the certain areas of influence.

Jeremy Taylor: Our server is located in Germany. The ping of 100-200ms will guarantee more than comfortable game experience; those who live in Europe or Israel will have no lags or the such. If your ping is not enough that's only you who may experience some problems or lags, not the entire team with higher pings.
We will probably launch another one American server to guarantee smooth game experience for the US audience. We are testing different options for that moment.

And can we damage our own clan members? and alliance clans' members?

Jeremy Taylor: The limit of your clan is one hundred players. You will be fighting on the global map divided into hundreds of areas of influence for domination over those zones. Each zone represents a map with the certain limitation of the number of players on it. For this moment the limitation of one of the map we have so far is 60 players.
Imagine the situation. You're commanding the clan of 100 hundred players. You've got the aim to capture, say, 2 zones on the global map. Each zone (map) on the global map has its own limitation of the number of players to play on. One map can afford 60 players to fight on, another one - 40 players. You divide your clan and send your two divisions to fight.
The size of the map depends on its type. For instance, the desert map with a very few objects on it may hold much more than the city map, while the city map may hold approximately 50 players on it.

Jeremy Taylor: High level heavy tanks are clumsy with low turret rotation speed. Low level tanks are much faster and use this advantage for scouting and in battling. The light tank can damage or even destroy the heavy tank by "dancing" around it and shooting in vulnerable places.
Fights will not be one sided as before each battle the game divides players in two equal teams and each fighting vehicle has its own assignment (scouting, offensive, arty cover, etc.).
This is the hierarchy of factors and exactly in this order to win the battle in World of Tanks. Just like in real war actually:
1.Wise team cooperation,
2. Skills of each player,
3.The level of tanks
