this is a bigger screw up then microsoft and xbox 1.

It IS the best scout tank. So thats why they're going to rework "it" completely. Its performance is simply unrealistic. Although this game is not a simulator, they're trying to keep it somewhat plausable...thus the nerf/replacement.

The T-50-2 was never meant to go that fast. It was a slow infantry tank.

the t-50-2 in game is a more fake tank then the E-50m. one it is imposable to go full speed and not crush your tank and it was going to be a support tank then they made the mt 25 to replace the t-50-2 hence why they got the same guns.

Oh no! My OP scout is getting balanced! And its the SAME GUN.
How is that a problem?
I can't believe how hard the T-50 got hit though.

You've endlessly grinded to acquire a tank that WG is now planing to nerf/adjust/change...

Welcome to World of Tanks my friend. :sceptic:

Silly question but  - the T-50-2 is 50% off this week.  If I buy it for $363K and then after the swap to the MT 25, I find I don't like the new tank - what would the resale value be?  I am guessing that as a Tier VI, I might make a few coins but was just curious if that would really be the case.

And yet i dont remember the M4 Sherman having a gun that could cut through tanks twice as big as it is,and yet i walk into a tier 5 match and magically im seeing this everywhere.

The current selling price of a fully-equipped MT-25 on the test server is almost 490k credits. A completely stock vehicle sells for 440k credits. Buying a T-50-2 while it's on sale would net you nearly 80k in profit

I suppose it's part of the process to remove arty from the game...8.6 killed arty off as an enjoyable alternative/support vehicle, so scouts aren't really needed anymore. Hardly seen any arty since 8.6 either in pubs or clan wars. Was in a match today with a total of three arties, and someone announced an arty party...that's how few are being played now. Without arty to spot for or kill, there really isn't a use for scouts. So welcome to the World of Heavies, with 8.7, another class of vehicles will be rendered useless.

Game is definitely going downhill. 8.6 was a slap in the face to all who very painfully ground out tier 10 arties, 8.7 will be a slap to the the scout crowd, apparently.

Want to bet 8.8 nerfs the TDs into useless unenjoyability?

Problem is that the T50-2 is/was the BEST dedicated scout in the game, but post nerf not all that great in anything else. Granted you could be sneaky and take out arty and get side shots, but most of the new chinese/american/french lights do that way better due to having bigger guns and autoloaders with slightly lower speed. Now the MT-25 looks like the VK2801 russian style but it doesnt have the derp that the VK has, making it far less useful. Who cares that it gets a bit more maneuverability, fact is that its a slow to accelerate(for a scout) brick on treads. Yes the 50-2 was unrealistic, but whenever i point out ROF discrepancies between russian tanks and other nations tanks, i'm told its just a game and to deal with it, so why should this be made "realistic" when so much else is unrealistic anyway
