19/09/2015 Q&A

- Storm doesn't consider the size differences between objects a too big deal (in this case apparently the bus on the Stalingrad map is bigger than the Japanese heavy tank)
- it's possible that new motion physics will appear in 9.11 (10.0?) but it is also possible that it will be delayed, it's too important a feature to rush its release

There are a lot of small things to fix on new motion physics according to Storm:

- fixing the jumping small tanks like Tetrarch (a problem in suspension settings)
- fixing the loss of speed when going uphill (too much)
- fixing the turning intertia
- checking carefully the acceleration, there is a suspicion that some vehicles accelerate too slowly
- synchronizing all that with sound

- there will definitely be more motion physics tests
- there is currently no order in which the HD tanks are arriving to WoT. According to Storm there are many outsourcers and WG is releasing them as they come
- T34 in HD is being worked on along with T29 and T30
- the map ranking (limited pool of maps on tiers) will in the future be completely disabled for players with over 1000 battles
- the M46 Patton in HD fail (the model was reworked several times) was caused by Wargaming shifting it from one department to another and it got stuck somewhere in the middle and entered the game without proper checkups
