Developers Corner  said: Pre-release Notes what to expect

Last updated February 10, 2011
With the release approaching there is an urgent need to make up for a certain information deficiency. This thread is an attempt to cover top 10 most important points, issues, plans.
1. Release: Hardwipe & Prices For Gold
These dates are still considered to be rough, but should give batter understanding of projected time-lines.
ETAs:
Pre-orders launch: February 20-25
Release date: March 10-15. Hardwipe confirmed.
Note! The exact dates will be announced on the websites. ETA's will be updated as we near the respective events.
The exact prices for gold are to be announced. There are some organizational issues that are to be sorted out first.
US server:
set in US dollars
EU server:
set in Euros
1USD=1EUR rate won't be in use, overall prices will be practically the same for both servers.
Note! Available payment systems and other related details are to be announced.
Pre-order packages will be available approx two weeks before the game goes live. All in all there will be 3 options to choose from, each one contains certain amount of gold with discount and a premium vehicle (A-32, Pz. V/IV, M6A2E1).
Pre-order stuff can be added to existing account.
2. Release Version and the Upcoming Major Update
Projected release version - v.0.6.3.x. It will be based on v.0.6.3.7 and contain 1 pre-order tank M6A2E1 that is currently missing.
Major update v.0.6.4 - preliminary patch notes:
New vehicles:
- 3 tier 8 SPGs: Object 261, Geschutzwagen-E, T92.
- 2 premium tanks: Lowe and KV-5.
- 2 tanks from full tress: Pz38 NA, KV-13.
Maps:
- 2 brand new maps.
- Completely redesigned Pagorki map.
- Reworked Komarin map.
New movement system that is supposed to remove about 70-80% of stuck cases.
Fixed hit boxes for several tanks (Maus, Jagdpanther, IS-7).
[Possibly] Reworked gun mantlets for Tiger II, VK4502, Ferdinand, Jagdtiger.
Added gold transfers between clan members.
Reworked detracking system. See new detracking mechanics section.
[Possibly] Reworked special graphic effects that is supposed to fix multiple fps drops.
Reworked the mechanics of credit and gold repair kits, fire extinguishers, first aid kits. Details to be announced.
Added advanced settings for voice chat and reworked some interfaces.
Added mute player function for voice chat.
Added individual adjustments of match-making value for each tank. Tanks of the same tier and type can be assigned with different values.
[Possibly] Added tier for company battle mode with limitations on max vehicle tier and/or overall tier of the company.
[Possibly] Fixed several cases of memory leak.
Reworked outlines of bases to reflect the actual radius more accurately.
Note 1! ETA to be announced.
Note 2! The update comes after the release.
Note 3! US TDs will be added with the update that comes after v.0.6.4.
Note 4! French tanks will be added after US TDs.
3. Visibility and Spotting Mechanics
Visibility and spotting system are being worked on. Below are some details.
Overall performance if the system will be optimized so as to consume less server resources
The rate of visibility checks will see significant increase (approx 3-5 times more frequent)
The number of "hard points" (special spots are verified during visibility checks and located on the vehicles) will be increased several times. That is supposed to make visibility mechanics more accurate and credible when determining sight between tanks.
The number of visibility "sight lines" each vehicle emits is going to be increased several times. Small objects (posts, stones, bushes etc) won't affect visibility mechanics the way they do it now, their influence is to be reduced.
"Camo" or visibility values are going to be reconsidered to reflect actual vehicle size and engine specs. Currently there is some mismatching, especially with German vehicles.
"Post-firing" visibility will be systematized and redesigned according to gun specs
ETA is to be announced.
4. Revision of Tech Trees
Currently we are considering possible revision of existing tech trees. The work is still in progress and there is no ETA for changes to arrive.
US tech tree, to a high extent, can be revised in the light of community feedback here.
5. Match-making System
The way match-making system performs currently is explained here (Dev breakdown with chart) and here (FAQ).
Plans for future:
Overall match-making will be improving steadily, this kind of work goes non-stop
Match-making spread for the majority of the vehicles is not planned to be decreased
Most of improvements will be done by means of changing match-making value ("weight") of the vehicles, that enables us to adjust the probability of getting into battles of a particular tier without changing actual match-making spread
It will be possible to assign unique match-making value to each individual tank (currently assigned according to tier and type, i.e. all tier 8 heavies have the same value)
Several adjustments will be made when tier 8 SPGs (soon) and tier 5 light tanks (not soon) are added
Match-making value for tier 9 medium tanks is to be increased that will bring them in battles of higher tiers
No match-making system for company battles
Company battles are going to be divided into several sub modes: according to overall tier of a company, limited to min/max tier of vehicles in it, faction-based company battles
Most probably overall tier division for companies will correspond to current battle leagues
6. Clan Wars
International clan wars beta will start in a few months after the release.
Non-exhaustive list of features for clan wars currently in development:
New territories on global map.
Special in-game maps for most important historical provinces.
Fog of war in special battles. Neither team is aware of its opponent's roster.
Reconnaissance.
Engineering structures in controlled provinces: bunkers, automated (bot-guided) weapon emplacements, mine fields etc.
Call for artillery- and air-strike covering the whole square.
New battle formats. One base per map, bigger teams.
Political features: diplomacy and alliances, super-capitals, revolts.
Volunteers functionality (replacement for mercenaries).
Nomad clans.
7. German Vehicles
Having re-assessed statistics on vehicles performance and following vigorous community feedback, including but not limited to topics here and here, some changes are going to be made to German vehicles.
1. Fixed hit-box for Maus (example)
Fixed issue with lower front hull armor plate and "mudguards" (see "armor-schielding" below)
8 additional armor groups for gun and mantlet that can be assigned with separate parameters.
Added "armor-shielding" mechanics for mantlet and possibly front hull. "Armor-shielding" decreases actual penetration power of the shell, allowing shell to go further with reduced penetration ability.
Reworked mantled to reflect non-homogenous armor, gun hole in the mantlet and areas where mantlet armor overlaps with front turret armor.
ETA - v.0.6.4.x update
Note! Tiger II, VK4502, Ferdinand, Jagdtiger might be reworked in the same way, when the performance of "fixed" Maus is assessed.
2. Reconsidered and systematized visibility values for tanks and especially TDs.
ETA - v.0.6.4.x update
3. Adjustments to max speed values of Tiger and Tiger II are under consideration.
8. SPGs & Balance
Current SPGs mechanics is working as intended. The role artillery carries out in battle coincides with projected designations
No major changes are planned
Implementation of tier 8 SPGs is not going to cause significant rebalancing of lower tier units
9. New Game Modes
Several new game modes are in development
Assault mode - one team is to defend the base, the other one is to capture it
Domination mode - there is one base in the center of the map and both teams are to capture it
Current maps will be reworked and adjusted to suit new game modes
At this time - no ETAs
10. New Detracking Mechanics
The size of front and rear trucks/wheels for each particular vehicle will be specified in %.
I.e. suspension/tracks will consist of 3 major parts:
- front (approx 15-20% of its length)
- middle
- rear (approx 15-20%)
Hits for each part are to be calculated separately:
Hitting the front and rear parts will detrack the vehicle the way it works currently, ie the damage done to leading wheel or idler.
The middle part will have more hit points and reduced chance to be damaged.
The above is supposed to reduce the effectiveness of plain firing at tracks. One will need to aim accurately to detrack the opponent (damage either front or rear wheel/truck)
The image below roughly represents new system.

Green areas will be limited to the size of leading wheel and idler.
This post will be timely updated.

Tank Reviews #4- T-29 (T-20, 34 variant)
History: It was an American tank project started in March 1944 to counter the new German tanks. Because the M-26 Pershing wasn't considered well for fighting Tiger's and such, they got to use the experimental data on a new tank, the T-29 (Keep in mind that the T-29, T-30, and T-34 are identical except for the fact that they had different guns and engines),
Armor: This is interesting. The T-29's turret probably has more armor than the Maus has frontal. So, if you are in a hull down position, which mean that only your turret is visible, you are very invincible to lighter and weaker tanks. Your gun is protected by a very thick mantle plate. The main weak point of American heavy tanks seem to be the hull. It's quite low in-game actually, but nevertheless the hull is your weakest point. See, you can't underestimate the armor of the T-29/T-series. My IS-4 auto-aimed at the back of its turret and the shell bounced off once. So try not to auto-aim these tanks, you will probably find yourself bouncing it. The hull armor does need to be watched though, it can be penetrated by weaker guns but the turret is the major feature.
Firepower: Your first gun is mostly from the T-1/M-6 and it can't really do much. It's more like a ping-pong shooter on a giant turret, but once you get the 105, you will start kicking some tank butt. Try to stick with the supporting role at first because there isn't much you can damage, but as you get the better and final gun, you will find that it's fun, almost. They favor more turret defense, and they are more supportive. They can do whatever style you want, but it's best to do a supportive type with your current gun. For the T-34 and T-30, the 120 and 155mm guns really kick some butt. These can deal massive damage, and the T-30 is basically a tank destroyer with a turret.
Mobility: The T-series has great maneuverability. In fact, the are almost comparable to Soviet tanks. There really isn't much to say about maneuverability. Although at first it may seem sluggish and unresponsive, it accelerates faster than the Soviet and German heavies and it keeps up with the speed. It's not bad for a heavy tank. Compare it to the faster heavies.
Fear Factor: These things have a major fear factor in them. Although most might ignore the T29, the T-34 and T-30 are something to be reckoned with. Their huge turret armor ad huge guns distract you from targeting their hulls, and when you finally manage to hit the hull, you deal some damage but by then their 120 and 155mm guns are already done with totally knocking out and destroying your poor tank. Never ignore any of these tanks, although they are supportive, when used correctly they can we very very deadly.
Overall Factor: These are honest good tanks, and when compared to the IS and Tiger, most people would say the T-29 is the better. Again, in the the end it's up to you, but these are great all-round tanks, it's just their hull armor that is a little weaker, but be afraid, be very afraid. T-29 Power!
