* Note: I did go back and update my post on the release of 7.5. Go check it out.
Fresh off the press, an interview with SerB, the head development/vision dude for World of Tanks, posted on other head developer Overlord’s blog.
My favorite part is the excellent resolution of the difficult question of what to with with tanks like the Brummbar and Sturmtiger, that do not really fit into an existing line in the game. They were not intended to be long range vehicles like the current SPG’s, and but also don’t quite fit the mold of a TD either:
Q: Can you tell me when will you add Brummbär and Sturmtiger in the game and in which line you will put those tanks?A: We have decided to form a separate subline [sic] of assault guns with these vehicles. This subline [sic] is not finished yet, as soon it is, we will announce it to players.
Q: Will you create bigger maps then currently maps which we have in game?A: Currently we are experimenting with 3×3 km maps with 30-45 tanks on each side. If everything is ok, bigger maps will allow us to introduce bigger battles.
