[QUOTE=AnEvilGuy;20544613]Will I be able to upgrade my Panther to have a dual 88mm turret with infrared sights??[/QUOTE] Out of what I gather, no you won't be able to modify it that much, but you should be able to mount a larger cannon (Panther had a 75mm, you should be able to mount a 88mm, though probably not much bigger, not a Maus 152mm cannon for example). But I'm not a developer so to be sure wait for their answer.
[QUOTE=AnEvilGuy;20544613]Will I be able to upgrade my Panther to have a dual 88mm turret with infrared sights??[/QUOTE] Well, dual 88mm is a little too much for Panther's chassis. Coelian was supposed to have mere 37 or 55mm duals. The most advanced Panther's model in World of Tanks will be ausf F: [url]http://i82.photobucket.com/albums/j255/PaulusII/panther_ausf_f.jpg[/url] with Schmalturm and 88mm KwK 43 L/71. As for infra-red aiming, we'll be adding them when we work on night battles (shortly after initial release)
Soviet tree released (for you guys who don't get the newsletter): [url]http://worldoftanks.com/media/gallery/default/soviet_tree.jpg[/url] IS-4 and IS-7? I'm guessing it's the Russian response to the Maus, right? But if the IS-3 is the equivalent of the Tiger II (King Tiger), wouldn't the IS-4 be the response to the Maus, and IS-7 something bigger? At least if they are ranked by tier of power (as in size of cannon and armour). Or is the IS-4 somewhere inbetween the Tiger II and the Maus? [editline]05:24PM[/editline] Oh, just remembered the Tiger-Maus, is the IS-4 will be the equivalent of the Tiger-Maus I guess (if it's in the game).

Tiger II need a lot of help from his friends (Hummels, JandPanzers, etc) to crack IS-4. It has hard time piercing IS-4's frontal armor. IS-7 is more of a Maus opponent. Americans will also have some monstrous toy: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T28_Super_Heavy_Tank[/url] But the most important thing to keep in mind about World of Tanks is this: it's not about "Level 6 tank beats Level 5". Tanks have dozens of parameters, and it's a team battle with huge importance of terrain. So victory goes to the team which co-ordinates well or to more agile and smart tacticians. Believe it or not, light tanks, like Czhech t38 or Russian BT-2 are the most dangerous enemies of all heavy and super heavy tanks, as they can recon their positions and "light them up" for heavy artillery (Hummels, SU-14, etc.)
are the jagdpanthers/panzers viable to stay in forever? :3:
[QUOTE=Pinut;20556195]are the jagdpanthers/panzers viable to stay in forever? :3:[/QUOTE] THe jagdpanther is probably the highest tier anti-tank for the germans, or else pretty high up, I'm guessing.
[QUOTE=Pinut;20556195]are the jagdpanthers/panzers viable to stay in forever? :3:[/QUOTE] As Vittorio said, all tanks are useful, as they all have their role. I haven't played World of Tanks (of course), but in Men of War an M8 Greyhound that gets behind your frontline will do much more damage than a few King Tigers or IS-3s (on average), and since both games aim for realistic (within reason) tanks I guess it will be the same in WoT. I'm guessing most matches will go like this: Super-heavies: Will define the frontline, they'll be mostly immobile (unless heavily targeted by artillery) shelling each-other at long range from the front without doing too much to each other (they will focus more on not letting the opposing supers turn around and move than actually destroying them). Heavies: More or less the same as supers, just that they will aim for other heavies and keep the mediums at bay. Mediums: Will keep mediums and lights away from the bigger ones while keeping away from the frontline (and therefore keeping away from the larger cannons of heavies and supers), possibly following the lights and trying to get behind the enemy on some occasions. Lights: Will try to get behind the enemy (and once they do...). Artillery: Will stay put and hidden until they get their sight onto something worth giving away their positions for (heavies, supers and other artillery mostly), then they'll fire away as fast as possible, then full speed to a new position before the other artillery counter-fires. Organized clans will probably have more advanced strategies, but I believe most battles will go somewhat like the above. Anyway this is one of the games I'm most hyped for this year.

In World of Tanks teams of 30 vehicles each are pitched against each other on dozens of various maps. Map type and lay out changes everything. Our designers make sure there are no two maps alike (in terms of tactical schemes to be employed). You need to try :-)
[QUOTE=Glent;20556545]THe jagdpanther is probably the highest tier anti-tank for the germans, or else pretty high up, I'm guessing.[/QUOTE] No, the jagdtiger was better armor/weapon wise.
I demand a destroyed railyard map with blown up train cars/fallen over ones and shit.
Tanks but no dps. Sorry not my type of thing.
Fuck me, I didn't figure out it was a joke.
[QUOTE=Talkbox;20562084]Tanks but no dps. Sorry not my type of thing.[/QUOTE] What? You actually [B]want[/B] DPS (and therefore possibly auto-attack)? To each his own, but I had never before heard someone actually wanting DPS, I usually heard the opposite.
And here comes the Soviet tank tree :) [url]http://worldoftanks.com/media/gallery/default/soviet_tree.jpg[/url] Will the Is-7 beat Maus?
Is there going to be in-game voip?
[QUOTE=Talkbox;20562084]Tanks but no dps. Sorry not my type of thing.[/QUOTE] I'm guessing you want a healer tank and a tanking tank so you can go and raid the SS dungeons? Be glad some devs are making original stuff instead of that endless dwarves and elves wow crap.

I wanna be a truck that deploys a repair station behind some rocks on the frontlines and repair my buddies :buddy:

It was actually a really clever pun until you all ruined it.
Now this is a good idea for a contest: [url]http://www.worldoftanks.com/news/ideal_tank_contest[/url] That's awesome because it's creative and I'm guessing we will see the tank in the final game. The difference between WoT and WoW? If WoW had a "Design your perfect character" the entries would all consist of half-naked Night/Blood Elfs with huge tits. In WoT the entries will be awesome 80 tonne (or whatever) metal beasts.

Teaser #2 released [url]http://www.worldoftanks.com/gallery/video/1[/url] Still there's not a single hint about the gameplay of WoT.
Will we be able to apply our own camouflages to our tanks and stuff? Because right now you just have the standard olive-drab scheme for Russians and Panzergrau for Germans, which is highly unrealistic. American tree is out. [url]http://www.worldoftanks.com/media/gallery/default/american_tree.jpg[/url] Why is there an M4A5 Sherman? There was no such thing. Also, you guys have a bunch of experimental prototype tanks, but you don't even have an M26 Pershing? That tank actually saw some action.
M4A5 Sherman existed.
No US vehicle was ever built with the M4A5 designation. It was simply a number to signify Canadian Production. Since we are playing the US here, they didn't have anything called an M4A5, therefore it doesn't exist.

[QUOTE=Talkbox;21283701]now there's me watching that and thinking this game is going to be instanced to shit.[/QUOTE] It's not open-world. Luckily.
[QUOTE=Talkbox;21283701]now there's me watching that and thinking this game is going to be instanced to shit.[/QUOTE] Uninstanced PVP is only about who brings more friends to battle. Useless.
