Jarod said he got one after the fact, today....looks like they fixed things to remove the "damage only in battles survived" condition.

This will be good for events like the current 300k silver for 30 victories.

I got my 30th after completing at least 45 that I counted. Must be a calandar / time issue....

Just bought a BatChat medium...this should be fun. Sold off a bunch of things I no longer used, and vehicle whose lines I'm not too interested in, any more.

This should be fun, even better once I get the 105 in it.

8.8 – Storm answers questions

Posted on by Silentstalker110 Comments ↓
Source: http://world-of-kwg.livejournal.com/234997.html
I am very tired so don’t be too harsh if I mistranslated something. Should be okay tho.
- in 8.8, the reload timer in seconds will not be added, problems were discovered with its implementation
- WG will implement a ping meter for various servers of each cluster into the hangar
- the arty mod showing “angles and horizont” (SS: not sure what is meant) won’t be officially added
- official mod portal will slowly be worked on
- getting stuck on rails in Ensk will be fixed

- Storm believes that the new ramming mechanism is better than the old one, but not ideal
- changes in German tanks: “There’s enough changes to fill 5 pages. You’ll see in the test”
- the platoon/company automatic re-login on appropriate server might not work for clanwars, SerB doesn’t remember
- SerB states that according to WG stats, the amount of crappy computers WoT works on is very high (like, too many people have bad hardware)
- there will be a general re-work of all the ingame equipment
- the increased crewmember save effect of the spall liner in 8.8 multiplies the base chance, not adds to it
- developers are still considering to add the “kill marks” (for example, rings on barrels) – there are issues with the fact that some barrels are too short and some countries did not draw kill rings on the barrels
- public test of 8.8 will be soon
- hull modules will definitely not be added in 2013
- currently, WG is working on second German TD line (SS: so it is ready in 8.9 if I understood it correctly), it’s secret so far, how many rounds will there be in its tier 10′s autoloader guns
- sixth sense won’t be nerfed
- the “Chinese leak”, that 8.8 will bring 7/42 companies on Chinese server only, was just a hoax, according to Storm
- Havok will definitely come in 2014, it’s too early to release a demo video
- there are no planned changes for KV-5
- new game modes are planned, but players shouldn’t expect “another gameplay” from them (SS: here I am not sure)
- the spall liner crew protection bonus will work only on HE non-penetrating hits
- Object 430 will probably appear this year
- the 150mm frontal E-50/E-50M armor will stay
- Chinese Great Wall map will apparently appear only on Chinese server, as it is considered “boring”
- Stalin inscriptions will return in 8.8
- Superpershing will recieve some sort of buff apart from the frontal armor nerf

I WANTED a Bat... so bad I almost took French lessons.
I got SOOO Pissed at the Lorraine I sold it twice and bought it three times.
I tried the test server..... and fell in LUST with the T-62a. I MUST HAVE!
I completed Bat grind pfffft it's French - who cares - sold the Lorraine for the LAST time!
Re-bought my T-54 (Favorite Tier 9) and GROUND the T-62a until it was MINE!
The deal with the Bat just happened... meh why not - The Lori put me through SO much.
- - - - ..... T-62a.... pffft It collects dust. THE BAT IS SO FUN!

When I'm in a slump - Bat, fixes it
When I'm needing to get 30 kills quick - Bat, fixes it

The Bat - fixes everything. You'll love it.
