i love the world of tanks game but i am wondering. should there be a modern version of WoT with modern tanks build today. dont get me wrong, I love WW2 tanks, but i would be interested to see a version(Expansion pack maybe) of WoT that features coventional tanks. What does the community think about this? would you play a modern version of WoT?

i like the WW2 weapons better, but i would like to see a battle of modern tanks in WoT. most modern weapons don't seem to have the awesomeness of WW2 weapons(especially the M1 Abrams).

Meh, I might play it, but modern tanks don't.... I dunno, have the same charm if you will as the old tanks. Also, tech trees would probably be fairly limited in scope.

I suggested that it be like an expansion pack to WoT. You would have the option to choose whether to play modern or WW2 tanks. they wouldnt play together though, it would probably be unbalanced.

the problem is modern tanks have laser sights, and can shoot at people 7 km away :Smile_veryhappy: , and have infrared optics, and the list goes on..

There wouldn't really be that many. Most MBT's are about the same at this point.

YA THINK!?!?!?!?

Sorry, couldn't resist. But the ranges of modern tank battles are insane. Cross-map sniping in the current game would be the average engagement range of modern tanks....

Well, you would have the Abrams M1A2, Challenger II, and possibly the Type 99 and Type 10 dominate every other vehicle, and then the Merkavas and Leclercs running for their lives as they get repeatedly blown up.

So would we be driving around in a G6-52, a SPG capable of firing 8 rounds per minute and can shoot 6 rounds and make them hit simultaneously? Oh yeah, it also can drive at speeds of 70 km/h......

m1 abrams can shoot from 2 miles away which mean u can shoot from the other side of campinovka to the other side easily.
NO A BIG NO unless WG launches WoT2 filled with modern tanks only

<p>Theres actually a lot of reasons it wouldnt work nearly as well as WW2 does, besides ranges (which is actually irrevalant because most of the fighting in WoT happens at much closer ranges then the guns of that time period were capable of too).

1. Tech trees would be boring. Most tanks since the 60s follow the same design philsophy, theres very little variation like the 5 trees we get now. The USSR is the only moderately interesting one with all the T series, but even all those are similar in the long run.

2. Armor is much more complex. WW2 was basically "can you penetrate this much RHA at this angle?" Composites, ceramics, DU, ERA, the list goes on, and making a good combat system without ignoring that is just insanity, especially with how much speculation you need since no one has fired a modern round at a contemporary target in decades.

3.Modern combat w/o ATGMs is not modern combat. If they arent included in some fashion then its just no good.4. Fire control systems. No need to say anything else there./p>

I certainly would be interested in a standalone version.

Not necessarily.  If ATGMs were so essential to tank combat, then how come they are not equipped on Western MBT's?

To the subject, I wonder if modern MBT's could be included at the really steep xp and silver costs that their capabilities would logically imply (really expensive and high xp requirements).  I think it's been pointed out elsewhere that there may not be enough tanks in the modern era for a separate game, in addition, it could make people not even want to try WOT, since they won't have access to Abrams, Leopard 2, T-72 etc.

It might be better for WoT to just keep on releasing new tanks till it hits the modern age.

Because the MBT-70 failed miserably and the L44 was a terrific gun. But look to the TOW and the Hellfire for your real answer. They did see them as essential, just not in their tanks.

It's World of Tanks, not world of helicopters, hummers, APC's and drones.
