I've been playing this game a long time... a very long time. I owned the T34 when it was a tier 9 heavy. Wargaming gave us the M103 and we got to keep the T34 as the new tier 8 premium tank. The tier 10 T30 heavy became a tier 9 TD and we got the T110E5. Over the years WG has changed or removed tanks and they were very generous in their accommodations to the owners. One of the best was the tier 5/6 Russian heavy change and techtree branch addition that put 3 or 4 tanks in my garage. There was also a change in the British line that gave people a free premium if they owned the techtree version. 

 

Then things changed for a while.....

 

The tier 9 Lorraine was removed and came back as a premium. If you owned it, too bad. You only got the tier 9 replacement.

The tier 10 Waffle E100 was removed and we got the Grille 15 in its place. Then they nerfed the heck out of it. (I still don't understand this one especially with the introduction of the Foch 155 B).

 

Now.....

 

They keep changing tier 10s and letting us keep the old one as a premium 'legacy' tank.

 

The point is...... wait for it........ I want my free Lorraine and the Waffle E100 back.

 

I loved the Waffle E100. I was as big as a house and had no camo value at all, unlike the Foch 155 B. It was still ridiculously fun to play.

I think the Waffle just has too much of a reputation. To introduce it would leave them too open to rage and hate from people who despised it.

I know. Unlike the invisible Foch 155 B that can also clip out a tank, still bounce shots and get away with really good speed. At least the Waffle lit up like a Christmas Tree when it fired and everyone could shoot it.

WG only lets you keep tanks when the replace if they fill 2 important requirements: As a premium they suck (lookin at T34 and Fv4202) when released. Or they can't sell them anyway so there is no monetary loss to simply giving players the free tank (Foch 155, fv215b 183)

 

The Lorraine doesn't fit the requirements. WG knew it was going to be a very good premium, and it was also conveniently only released after they replaced it with the bat. so no free tank since they knew people would flock to buy it.

 

As for the waffle. Ya I loved mine, but I know it will never come back because it was way too good at killing pretty much anything if you could pen your entire clip, regardless of the skill of the player you're facing. As such everyone complained that it was disgustingly OP and as a cherry on top they touted the fact that it's as fake as chinese knockoffs

Sounds like a bad case of the "IWANTS".  You should see a doctor about that.

All true.

 

I only miss 2 tanks in this game. The Waffle and the old Hellcat.

The old Hellcat was a damn blast (literally) to play back in the day.

 

I would love if they would remove the 90mm on the Hellcat and give us back the mobility/speed that it used to have (and use the M1A2, or maybe some other higher pen 76mm gun).

I love playing the Type 64 now. I just imagine that I'm hitting them for 250-300hp.

well the Foch B hasn't been around long enough for it's reputation to have grown to that level. Besides they still have enough time at this stage to balance it more, then again.... *looks at Type 5*

Add the old FV304 into the bag, and I'm with you... I thought the KV-1S was fine, but honestly too powerful for it's placement at Tier VI, however the others were pretty good. But, as I've said a few times lately, give me the original FV304 as a Premium Tier VIII artillery, and I'd pay $50 in a heartbeat. Yeah, goes into the "I can dream" category, I know.

May the Waffle Rest in Turmoil and Turbulence. It had no peace in its time and deserves none in the afterlife.

If you want it back go to the Chinese server.

I would like the T-50-2 back but tough luck so far

Foch B clipped me out  4 shots in 6 seconds from the first, while I am in tier 9 full HP. :izmena:

I feel like 50% refund of credits and xp of the waffle should have been awarded to owners, and maybe a special waffle patern camo to show off on a diffrent tank lol...
