- T78: Chaffee hull with a Jackson turret? Sounds like a pretty decent tier VI TD to me.

I think they still want to keep that reserved in case 'alternate hulls' become enabled, which they've been talking about for years.

 

My guess is there is more chance of seeing T53. It is worth noting that a T24 3D model used to exist, though it would be more a Tier IV or so. I haven't seen that model in a very long time, though, it's been pulled from the development server chute. There are other TDs which can be thrown in, such as M78 or T72. Problem is most are not above Tier VI.

 

Isn't that something that could be solved with balancing factors? Unless they had tiny little pea-shooter guns, things like RoF, ground resistance, accuracy, view range, camo... Those are all balancing factors in the game that wouldn't detract from the "historical" attributes of the tank.

Adding new premium arty would be a great idea, though they do at the risk of making it look like there are just trying to get more people to play arty. Oh well, haters gonna hate.

If I were a betting man, I'd go with seeing an M13/40 in WoT at some point in 2018 (It's another vehicle we used to have a 3D model of, together with the L6). I have not seen anything to indicate that it has been approved, however, let alone more tanks in the line.

 

Let the rivets fall where they may.

​I was hoping they gave up on the "alternative" hulls idea already. It adds nothing of value. In most respects the hull is the tank. Guns, engines, suspension, and even turret are basically accessories to the hull. If you change any of those you get a modified version of that tank. If you switch hulls, it is now a completely different animal. Different hull types should just be represented with different tank models. We have Pz IVA, Pz IVD and Pz IVH on the German tree now at tiers 3, 4, and 5 respectively. Why try to combine all those variations into one tank at a single tier?

You don't like arty ("hate" in fact, by your own words) and yet you want more arty in the game?

 

My brain feels like it got stunned by artillery.  I'm struggling for words.

 

There was another thread about this a day or two ago and I'll say the same thing again.  WG already painted themselves into a corner with arty.  Adding more arty would leave them in a painted corner on a 1 meter square, 2 mile high island, with a minefield below.  I'm not sure why they'd want to do that.

​Can't they just make an imaginary TD? Something turreted at tier 8 with 300mm all round armor, 60 km/h top speed, with a 8" battleship gun equipped with a rapid fire10 shot autoloader. 300mm pen (so they can shoot each other) and 750 damage. Call it the T1000 Dominator. Charge $100 for it, I'm sure they will sell like hot cakes!
