I was very shocked to see the new 8.2 patch notes, I had thought that the issue of there not being enough Chinese tank designs to fill a tech tree had pretty much put the issue to bed. However, we are now going to be getting a new tree full of designs taken from other nations and labeled as Chinese.

I personally see this as a blatant money making move. Wargaming simply want to appeal to the vast Chinese market by giving them a tree of their own. Never mind that it means using about 10 designs already in-game in other trees. I personally think that the Chinese tree is unimaginative and uninteresting. Also, the tier 10 is probably an improved variant of the WZ-111, a rip off of the IS-3. Great, an up-gunned IS-3 as a tier 10. This just gets better and better.

Please support this thread if you, like me would rather see some more genuine and original content. I mean its not like there's a shortage of designs out there that still have yet to be implemented. When they have brought in the British TD's and SPG's, Japanese, Italians, European tree, and possibly Commonwealth trees, then by all means fabricate a Chinese tree.

EDIT: I am seeing a lot of 'If you don't like it, don't play it arguments, and to be quite honest with you, I'm 99% sure that I wont be playing the new tanks. However my issue is with the order of the updates. This would appear to be really scraping the bottom of the ideas barrel. There are loads of great tank designs that could be implemented; why resort to Chinese copy-tanks?

Also, I find it kind of ironic how that was about the best trailer for WOT I have seen  :Smile_blinky:

At least its true to life. China designs are typically unimaginative rip-offs of existing things....

I'm OK with the release of modified Chinese tanks from other nations because this means the masters of modified tanks from other nations, the Israelis may be considered in the future. A "tank" nation with modified American M50/M51 Super Shermans, Magach-1 M-48 Patton, Soviet Tiran-3,4,5 Series T-54,T-55, T-62, French Modified Amx 13, British Sho't Mk 3/5 Centurion and Sho't Kal Mk 7/1 Centurion I'm still here waiting for you. =D

Wake up, we no longer live in a Euro-centric world (which includes the America's).....

If the young capitolists from the former Soviet Union choose to market to another part of the world, great.
This is capitolism!  You make your money by providing goods and services to those who will pay for them.
This is what made Euro-centrism possible in the first place.... and now it is available to a post communistic world.

I still don't understand how people are construing this as a money grab... sure a few people will convert free xp to get the tier 10's, but it's a tech tree, not a bunch of premiums... most people will unlock them without spending a dime.

Anyway, I don't support this thread.  Bring on the chinese tech tree.

I do believe this was a submission from the Chinese server side and NOT WG itself. As it is, I remember Viktor saying that they had a few 'Select Chinese individuals' who the Chinese server said were researching about tanks that could potentially fill a whole tree for them.

That and the running notion that every server must be equal so they are not going to implement it on just the Chinese server and be exclusive there.
