WoT Blitz Q&A (July 2015)

 Here it is:

- The developers have ideas how to fix the "Baltic Shield" map. When it happens, it will be available for all tiers;
- No need to wait this year for "a legendary city map" - "it's worth waiting for";
- No plans for any hightier premius anytime soon;
- Patch 2.0 will bring iOS graphics settings;
- No plans to increase number of players in one battle, maybe in fun modes - but that won't come anytime soon;
- PC version has no influence on Blitz balance, Blitz vehicles are balanced based on Blitz statistics;
- There are plans for Object 907 and PT-76 but not soon;
- The upcoming British TD branch will be have its special "oneshot" characteristics (high caliber vehicles);
- Himmelsdorf is being worked on but it won't come in summer;
- Next patch is planned for August;
- Even today the game has mechanisms to detect and punish AFKers. Results are good.
- Inscriptions on gun barrels idea is good, developers are considering it;
- There will be marks of excellence on gun barrels but they will be very different from PC version and interesting;
- "Waffenträger" will lose 6 shells in order to balance it;
- For now only one British TD branch is planned (the one with FV215b 183);
- Next nation to be implemented won't be disclosed yet;
- In order to release autoloader tanks they have to be thoroughly tested in order not to break gameplay. They will come but it is unclear when;
- No plans to extend the quick command selection and make minimap interactive anytime soon;
- New tanks implemented later have better details, in the future the old tanks will be reworked to new details level;

FV3805 Restoration Project

Oh boy its out...

Hello Warriors,

The Mingles with Jingles is now out and our secret beans have been spilled!

Ive joined in a restoration project of the only SPG FV3805 left in the world (only 2 prototypes were built) which resides at the lovely Wight Military & Heritage Museum.

The Wight Military & Heritage Museum have more vehicles and weapons than they are able to fit in for display and they are working their way to get more space for them, its not easy as they operate mostly from donations but what makes it special is that visitors are able to get rides in the armoured vehicles including a FV432, T55, and Mark III Centurion.  Oh, and the staff are very lovely!

Our plan is to get the FV3805 running under its own power and be ready for the Tankfest 2017 arena. It will be operated and driven by an all female crew. And this is were I come in the picture, after invitation, I've agreed to become The Tank Museum very first tame woman tank driver and will be taking Tank driving and maintenance lessons in the future weeks!
Another of our goals is to make this beauty have Disabled Access, it wont be hard to build a
specially fabricated wheelchair slope in the rear hatch to enable wheelchair-bound ex-servicemen who will have the opportunity to be safely driven in the vehicle.

Other good news, you have the opportunity to join us in the restoration. No special skills required but if you do have any skills that may be useful for the project please feel free to list them in an email to:

Here are some photos of "my baby", have to say that I fell in love when I saw her, make sure to Follow this facebook page for updates!

Some photos taken by The Mighty Jingles of the FV3805 with a video to follow. thanks for the help and support Jingles

Gamescon 2015 Mission (EU)

Hello Warriors,

the mission for Gamescon 2015 that caused the Wargaming’s 17th Anniversary for EU being so poor is now in-game:

- From 6 August, 07:10 CET until 10 August, 7:10 CET

  • Collect 200.000XP
  • Be among the top 10 players of your team by XP
  •  Random Battles only
  • Dicker Max (50% Crew)
  • 1 Garage Slot
(They may still add something extra like discounts)

My question is... does the Dicker Max satisfy you as a reward and makes up for the anniversary shortage?

I personally like the Dicker Max, been playing it a bit more often in the last days and is always fun to make use of that gun depression.

 *You want a premium tank? You better work b**ch!* (Hate this music... but it came to mind)

Tier 2 - LT vz. 35
Tier 3 - LT vz. 38
Tier 4 - ST vz. 39
Tier 5 - Škoda T 24
Tier 6 - Škoda T 25
Tier 7 - Konštrukta T-34/100
Tier 8 - TVP VTU Koncept
Tier 9 - Škoda T 50

It is likely that the 0.9.10 preview is waiting for Gamescom as well (even though we do already know what tanks will it bring - the Japanese heavy branch).

VK36.01H patch 9.9 armour changes

Hello Warriors,

check out this interesting video of a VK36.01H armour changes in patch 9.9. The author has this to say: "A bit of a nerf to make the Japanese Tiger look good?"

What do you think?
