Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

I am just going to lead off with this, and everyone that posts " they are removing tanks from the game," will not be addressed. 

 

To summarize: 

Lower tier vehicles up to tier 6 are all getting more HP and added durability (health) to ammo racks. This will allow for a more forgiving learning experience at those tiers (my personal opinion). 

 

All the Tech tree changes are happening and I recommend you check out this link HERE

 

Many questions and what-if scenarios are included in the news article. 

 

Enjoy :D

Does this update include a "EASY" Button now? :teethhappy:

 

Joking aside, not a fan of this update but so it goes.    Can we hope there are more maps coming now?

New Maps? Obviously you are joking. Nonresearchable tanks for new players = potential buying gold and credits to get more tier ten tanks faster for the new players.

Of the tanks moving to a different tier - like the KV-1S to tier 6 - will there be a rework of characteristics? I don't think that is a particularly strong tank even at tier 5 for instance.

My god man, what about buffing the bad tanks? This stuff about adding HP and the removal of tech tree tanks has already been baked in. We know.  What about "balance" for the bad tanks we currently have ...

 

How else does this have to be explained or how this this possibly not be clear?

I unlocked and bought the French IX and X mediums, but now I see that was a waste of XP ? Anyone who has the eights gets them for free ?

 

All players who were approaching to the Tier IX tank (the AMX 30 1er prototype), but hadn’t researched it, and stopped at the Tier VIII tank (the Bat.-Châtillon 12 t), and also hadn’t researched any Tier IX vehicles, will gain access to the Tier IX tanks (+ 1 Tier) of the French nation in the Collectors' Vehicles tab, after the update goes live.

 

Guess it depends on what they mean by "gain access to"

All I know is, I get to keep my Sherman Jumbo WITH the howitzer and the base turret.  THAT makes me happy!

Probably going back to how it was before and merging with the KV-85.

So we didnt need to research these tanks after all ? Do we get some sort of compensation for the time and resources spent researching them since no research is needed any more?

These sound like sensible changes to me. I appreciate the tempered response by WG after the testing and sandbox.

I was looking forward to the tier VIII and up being reward tanks.  All of the grinding recently has been to unlock them...  so much for planning and acting accordingly...

Compensation? What does that mean comrade?

A bit disappointed that only up to tier 6 are getting HP buffs.  With the massive flood of tanks you guys have put into the game at tier 8 or higher that do ~700dmg instantly really kills the enjoyment of having 1500hp tanks.  Was really looking forward to all tiers getting a little HP increase...this is disappointing to read.

 

Another serious concern is what about my FREEXP I used to research all the low tier tanks in order to keep from getting low tier blueprints?  Can we expect to get FREEXP back on tanks being removed and no longer needing xp to buy?  I don't play low tier and used a lot of FREEXP on some tanks being removed from the tech tree.  I'd like that FREEXP back pls.

 

I might be mistaken and you might need xp to research these tanks before you can buy them from the collectors tab...but I'm pretty sure you don't.  It's my understanding they will be available for credits without a research cost...that won't be fair to players in my position. 

 

Please, correct me if I'm wrong.

I just hope that ammo buff to all low-mid tier tanks can actually benefit tanks with already low ammo capacity like the StuG III ausf. G because if it gets a really low increase of for example, from 36 to 40 it will be so bad for it since it would require a lot more ammo to take down lower tier enemies due to the HP buffs so on most matches it would end with no ammo during the late game. I'd say 50-55 ammo capacity would be good for it so I hope they increase the ammo capacity by checking every single tank and its needs instead of a general percentage to all tanks.
