Howdy Tankers!


I know there has been a lot of discussion about the various premium tanks and what is available in the gift shop, each week when the specials come out.

When it comes to the following tanks,  there is no current plan to release them back into the gift shop:
PzKpfw V-IV Alpha
KV-220 Beta
M6A2E1
PzKpfw V-IV
A-32
MTLS-1G14
BT-SV
SU-85I
PzKpfw II Ausf. J
PzKpfw IV Hydraulic
KV-220
WZ-111
PzKpfw 38H735 (f)
PzKpfw B2 740 (f)
Tetrarch
T1E6
Type 59
Type 62
KV-5

The Type59 G will never introduced to this server.
The T23 has been completely removed from the game. There are no plans to re-introduce it.
There are not plans to put the M3 Stuart Lend Lease in the gift shop,  if we do re-introduce it,  it would be part of the upcoming tutorials.

I know this not the answer many of you have been looking for,  but I wanted to make sure you knew the status of these tanks.

I thought this was announced a few days after the gift shop was first released?

Were people still asking about it?

I thought they were going to continue to allow people to buy the Type 59, 62, and KV-5 during special sales.

At least give out some as a competition prize, maybe a competition that doesn't rely so much on luck as the "have one high exp battle" event you did when the Chinese tanks came out..

Edit: or maybe make a limited sale where you only put 100 or so into the shop?

Well, if you don't want my money.

I'm also curious, does WGNA actually get to decide which tanks are off limits, or are those things decided in Minsk?

Funny thing being, SerB stated most of the people who managed to get the top XP in chinese tanks on the RU server were running crews with 4+ skills which they trained up on their... Type 59, yep.

I really regret not having joined WoT a couple weeks sooner back then. I really hope you guys will reconsider selling it.

We never even got a chance to purchase the MTLS-1G14, SU-85I, BT-SV, PzKpfw IV Hydraulic, KV-220(maybe IDK), PzKpfw II Ausf. J(maybe IDK), or the WZ-111. Some of these tanks only touched the test. Despite what you say, I still want and MTLS-1G14 and a M6A2E1
