In the livestream, RibbleStripe and Alexandra talked about ATGMs. That's a whole nother thing, but basically, they say it's too early to call them OP right now, but they will definitely NOT receive any buffs. They may be nerfed as soon as next update. They are waiting for more data.  Also, ATGM mechanics may be changed. If they can't be balanced after all attempts, they will be removed, but they don't want to do it. Once they are determined to fit in the game, they may be placed in other tanks, which they mention the MBT-70 as a potential recipient.

 

6.8 details

- Possibly Realistic tournaments, so tournaments using the Realistic gamemode

- SU-130PM will be released. They don't say if it's in crates or bundles, but I'm betting (hoping) for the latter.

- new map, called Halas(I don't know the spelling, this may be wrong) , summer Greek theme,  will be released

-UI update for the tech tree page

 

Also, Chinese New Year event begins Jan. 24th

Thank you for the summary.

 

Removing ATGM from the game has probably 1% chance. It would require TONS of complaints - and  - a drop in player populations & activity - and - WG being unable to balance the vehicles that have them.

They were reading comments during the stream. They're quite aware of how much negative criticism they've gotten (9-10 tiers ruined, I can't play anymore, missiles OP, etc), although they also mentioned some people's positive reception. They don't seem to think they're OP themselves, but are willing to do whatever necessary to balance them after they see 3 - 4 weeks of data. 1 week is too early, in their opinion.

Nice summary.  But if they don’t make more than a lip service effort to fix the new light tanks balancing issues before it drops then I’m quitting the game again.

Ribble stated on the live stream that we will not see many changes to ATGMs for 3 to 4 updates. Removal of the ATGM mechanic will be the very last resort.  So either adapt, or come back in 3-4 updates.

Mechanic changes, yes, but vehicle characteristics will probably be adjusted much sooner.

Not exactly. Changes are possible for 6.8. But the decision if ATGM should stay or not will be taken after a couple of updates.

Gee, thanks Ribble.  A 10-second inspection of hall of fame damage records would show that the T92 is putting up higher records than tier 9 TDs. Just one small example.  Missiles are absurd.

It's not about missiles. Those tanks performs well because of normal shells.

That’s fair. I think SOMETHING has to be done with 6.8 as a show of good faith. Surely WG has had enough games, had enough tickets opened,  and read enough forum posts to have some ideas to balance it. I signed to play WoT BEFORE blitz came out and have been playing blitz since it came out. I took a break because of a combination of health and game issues that were largely resolved when I started playing again, and started spending money again. But I won’t hesitate to walk away and take my wallet with me if nothing is done, because it’s clearly an issue.
