- RU players will get additional bonuses to make the A45 marathon easier
- VK4502B will stay, Mauschen was shelved
- tier 7 VK4502B will not come for now

- developers are now testing the option of switching the mail tied to an account
- there will be seriously reworked Historical Battles with separate (unique) maps
- artillery will not be removed, it will be rebalanced
- there will be many free things and bonuses on RU server during the "WG birthday" (whether other servers will have these too depends on the local management)
