14.05.13.

- according to EU "developer" Quasar, 8.7 might bring a tier 8 medium premium tank
- the CW event is taking shape: it is confirmed that lowtier tanks will have a place within it
- SerB states that while vehicles are sorted in the team list by MM weight, in case of equal weight, they are sorted alphabetically, but some mods mess this sorting up
- it's unclear whether the random/company player stats split will happen after all
- AMX-13/105 won't appear in WoT
- the roles of Chinese tank crews (where sometimes a commander acts as a radioman and sometimes it's the loader) won't be unified
- in 0.8.6, champion companies will have arty up to tier 8, the medium tier company will have arties up to tier 6 and junior companies up to tier 4
- tier point limits for companies won't change in 0.8.6
- compensations for players who specialized in one type of arty (for companies etc.), which gets changed are not planned
- press accounts are not transferrable (eg. they are not allowed to be played by other people than the journalists)
- the "ghost" houses on A3 in Live Oaks are apparently bugs
- it's possible maps in various times of the day (dusk, dawn, night, day) are possible, won't be implemented for now
- WoT Blitz doesn't have arty, because its maps are too small
- WoT now apparently has an anti-botting mechanism implemented, nothing will be disclosed about it
- modern tanks will never be implemented, SerB stated that for modern tanks (from the 1960's till now), a whole different game would have to be made
- apparently there was some cybersports account named Cyber_Sport_Federation, punished with 7 days for fixing battles (SS: I am not into cybersports, but I can find out more if anyone is interested)
- tanks in platoons don't have bigger MM weight than without them
- players with high winrates are NOT being put by the MM mechanism to the bottom of the team more often
- Q: "What will happen to VK2801 in 0.8.6 in connection with the HEAT nerf? It's not fun to drive a scout without a gun..." A: "Don't drive a scout without a gun then." (SS: VK2801 in 0.8.6 gets a 105mm HEAT nerf, but also a depression nerf from -10 to -8)
- the Leopard 1 ammorack positions are historical
- archievements for travelling certain distance with a tank are apparently not planned
- it's not certain that captured tanks will appear only after historical battles
- apparently the increased E-25 L/70 penetration is just arbitrary, not historical

0.8.6 UK Sexton I

0.8.6 Sexton I got moved to tier 3



0.8.6 HEAT Nerf

Two major guns, that were the most complained about - the German Panzer IV 105mm derp and the Sherman 105mm derp are getting penetration nerfs: specifically - the German 105mm from 150mm to 104mm and the US 105mm from 150mm to 101,6mm
