- Q: “Severogorsk is tiny and should drop only for lowtier tanks” A: “Your opinion is very important to us” (SS: eg. it won’t be changed)
- Swedish Rikstanken (based on the L-120) apparently won’t be implemented, as it is armed with a 7,92mm machinegun (SerB: “And who do you want to knock out with such a caliber?”) (SS: the fact something is equipped with a 7,92mm MG does NOT mean it can be implemented, regular 7,92mm AP shells have less than 10mm of penetrating power, the Panzer I Ausf.C gun is very, very specific in this)
- if you start teamdamaging SerB in random battle, you will get a temporary ban
- SerB on alleged leak of T57 HT nerf: “We don’t comment leaks” (SS: there is news about a possible T57 nerf, I confirmed it with WG RU, T57 won’t be touched for now, so it’s just a hoax)
- if you sell the Superpershing for gold, there will be no compensation for gold camo or inscriptions
- on Live Oaks map (and some others), there are some very tricky steep shores, if you drive on them, you will slide into water without the possibility to do anything. This won’t be changed.
- official XP formula won’t be disclosed

8.8 Start Date

8.8 test server is supposed to start on 22.8.2013 (eg. on Thursday).
Two rounds of test are planned for now (22.8. and 29.8.)
The 8.8 is to go live on Russian server either on 8.9. or 9.9., on EU/NA/SEA it’s supposed to be between 10.9. and 12.9., for Korea it’s 17.9. – how much is this info reliable, I don’t know. But the test start is like 80 percent sure.

From SEO server:

- first, there is a new map being introduced in Chine, called “Empire’s Border”, you might remember some screenies being leaked a while ago, it’s basically a Great Wall map. Is it China-exclusive? No idea.
- 8.8 is introducing 7×7 (7/42) companies on Chinese server (that means the mechanism is ready)
- in 8.8, the Type 59 won’t be sold anymore. Just for comparison: on EU server (and that’s including the “flood” vehicles), there are roughly 78 thousand Type 59′s. Chinese server (while cca two times bigger than EU server) has 410 thousand and it’s expected to rise to 450k until this patch is out. The Chinese partner clearly doesn’t care that much about that.
- finally, the 8.8 is scheduled to come on Chinese server (and worldwide) on 10th or 11st of September (Russian server: either 3.9. or 8.9., allegedly it’s unclear from the e-mail)
