When the Pudel came out I thought it was the sign of a new Polish tech tree being added to World of Tanks. That's what happened before the Czech tree was added and before the Swedish tree was added. But as far as I can see there are no news to be found anywhere about a Polish tech tree. All there is to be found are speculations on what such a tree would look like. So if no Polish tech tree is forthcoming, what's the point of a Polish premium tank, which happens to be a complete clone of an already existing tank in the German tech tree?

I think we will see a polish line at some point.

To get people to give them money.  WG knows there is a large percentage of this player base who are extremely gullible, and WG uses that knowledge to their advantage every chance they get.

Minsk Developer Q&A with CCs

32

Good day everyone,

Today we have a fairly substantial Q&A from a CC meeting with the developers in Minsk. Courtesy of MatchyHK:

 

Q: When will polish tanks come?

A: We still working on the Poland tech tree, we already found all vehicles to that tree. So we will try to release this tanks as soon as possible. But it’s too early to announce any dates yet.

 

Q: When will polish tanks come?
A: Next year!

I think it is perfectly acceptable to drop a premium tank into the game a release ahead of the tech tree release, but to do it 6-12 months before? That doesn't sound right. I think I go with the money grab scenario, to be honest.

Go with whatever you want... just remember, what you find "perfectly acceptable" & what WG believes may be 2 different things.

I bought the tank and am training the BIA crew by playing it strictly in Stronghold Skirmishes. If they ever do a Polish line, I will have a 6 or 7 skill crew ready to go. If not, well... I'm having fun with it in Strongholds anyway. 

I have plenty of money... I let WG grab a bit of it once in a while.

Sure but it's also an opportunity to get ahead on crew training.

 

It's almost identical to the VK 30.02M, in of itself a fantastic vehicle, so it's not as though anyone buying the Pudel is buying a hunk of garbage. Like the M4 "Improved".

Best thing I can say about the M4 unImproved is I got it for free.

It sounds much like when the Type 59 was first made available, or when the Matilda Black Prince was introduced.

WOT is very big in Poland and they did the tank for those players. That is also why we will see a Polish tree before an Italian tree.

Will the T-34-85 Rudy migrate to the Polish tree?

I can't tell you what you should do with your money and I won't. But releasing a premium before they even know if and when there's going to be a line is using the uncertainty to flog copy tank.

Since we don't even know anything about the Polish line, how do you even know they will be medium tanks?

The Type 59 was released a long time ago when there were only, what, three or four nations in the game, right?

Yeah, I heard WOT is really not that big in Italy. None of the war games are. SIM is apparently the most popular computer game in Italy. ;)

Don't feel bad.   We'll never see a Canadian premium or tech tree.   The Ram at this point does not count, as it is an "American tank" in this game.  Maybe WG doesn't get it, or they just don't give a damn, but all the excuses I've seen in the past why we don't have a Canadian line, I get that.  But now a Polish line?  Seriously?

:(
