Today we have some new info to share from the ST: to the testing goes new German premium heavy tank of Tier VIII VK 168.02 (P). This super heavy tank with impressive armor will be tested in two versions:

  • 15 cm gun - this version of the tank will have high alpha-damage, but lower mobility
  • 12.8 cm gun – this version of VK 168.02 (P) will be more maneuverable with better aiming parameters

Based on test results, we will determine the final version of the armament for this tank. By the gameplay, regardless of the chosen gun, it will be a perfectly armored tank, meant for pushing directions or deterring opponent’s attacks.
Historical background: in the summer of 1942 Porsche company received an order for development of a breakthrough tank with the greatest possible armor and armament horsepower. VK 168.02 (P) became an evolvement of Typ 205 Mäuschen draft project. The main difference was the front location of the turret. The project didn’t go beyond the sketches.

How about more new maps and less new tanks?

This tank... (like the VK100 and Mauschen) is probably a bad idea.

They're overhauling their tools for making maps, which means work is stalled on wholly new maps until the HD map update(s) goes live

Yay, another premium T8 vehicle in the most broken tier ever. Why the hell are you making more T8 premium tanks?

+1

I would prefer new maps or return some of the old ones.

Because this game lost his glamour playing four or five maps all day.

How many more premium tanks wargaming is gonna introduce before the game is dead.

Many player I know left the game because of the drab postal stamp size boring maps.

 

PS. I play on the EU server since 2011 and most of the people I started out with are gone.

This high alpha super heavy [edited]needs to bloody stop. The only vehicles at tier 8 that should have 700+ alpha are the TDs. This is bloody absurd.

No more tier 8 premiums for me, what's great now will be dog meat in a few months. I've given up on the new maps.

How about adding more personal mission tanks and less premiums...

 

I hope the super testers reject this tank...

MMORPG:And how do you get that feedback from players? Is it just purely from forum feedback or does it come from other sources?

WoT: So, we establish channels with the community on the forums

What could possibly go wrong with giving a tier 8 a gun with the highest alpha damage in the game, minus the deathstar and jagzilla?

I'm sure nothing bad.  Like completely screwing up tier 8's like the Defender did/is.  No, surely that won't occur.

So this tank weighs 68 tons more than a VK100.01P, has the same hit points, has the identical turret, will probably have the same 12.8cm gun, has the same speed, and has much weaker frontal hull armor (140mm compared to 200).  In fact, its side hull armor is thicker than the front, albeit without any slope.

What did they spend the extra 68 tons on?  Bicycle storage?

 

Seriously Quema... not to shoot the messenger but this seems to be just silly.  So tell me up front; is it gonna be another Defender?   Should I rush to buy it because it's crazy overpowered and you'll refuse to sell it a second time once everyone sees how OP it is?   Or is it gonna be another IS-6?  Just be straight with me, man.

Oh good. More T8 prems instead of new maps or map overhauls to fix the old ones.. Oh well, more over-confident wallet warriors for my Udes to eat..
