Most of the line looks too generic to be worth it, it comes from the 14TrashP and, I don't know, not really excited about this line.

 

The tier 10 mechanic comes handy to get to early positions and relocating, so there's that.

Yes the biggest news here is a new tier eight T54 premium medium tank that will simply be a better T54 a tier lower with more gun depression and possibly a new broken EBR mechanic on it.

The tier 8's aren't getting the boost mechanic, and for all we know it has like 50mm of armor or something.

Shhh, you're raining on his constant negativity parade.

This would be one of the first times that they release a tier 10 tank where the tier 8 premium trainer does NOT have the same mechanic that the tier 10 does. Wargaming has already stated that trainers need to play like the other tanks that they train for. So even while they stated that only the tier 10 will have this mechanic, yeah, lets just remind wolks, "Things are subject to change". 

 

As Quicky said in his video today, things at wargaming are probably delayed because of Corona (the beer not the virus - apparently Russians drink a lot). So, he expects that this tank may be released probably towards Christmas. And guess what, now they have a new tier 8 premium tank to sell in loot boxes that, you guessed it, will probably have a special mechanic on it. So while they say the tier 8 won't have this mechanic, I am going to put my chips down on the red square that says it WILL have the mechanic.

As I wrote, on Reddit, when am I getting my Turbo Panther?  As we all know, the Panther 88, while dear to my twisted heart, just isn't "it".  So, let's fix the problem!!!

Well QB has done a vid on the tier X vehicle stats, but when he does it he mentions and shows

the memo that CCs got from WG.  In it it mentions one detail not mentioned elsewhere and

that is when the vehicle goes into drive mode, IT LOSES SOME CAMO!  No BS.  Go see it

being mentioned in the memo for yourselves by pausing the video at 3:30...

 

 

PS Edit.  Now that I think of it, if they can decrease camo on a vehicle in real time on a vehicle

when it goes faster then should add this feature to the BLOODY FRENCH WHEELIES.

I'm willing to bet that you'll see a lot of features, of this tank, get slapped onto the EBRs.  The reduced fire capabilities, alone, would do wonders.

 

PS>  I want my Turbo Panther, dammit!

You're right, that would be odd, and it is, but in the video WG specifically stated that *only* the tier 10 medium is getting the boost mode. I mean, I guess they can always change their minds, but that's where we are right now.

 

Also FWIW the tier 10 medium itself only has 80mm of armor; it would be very odd of the tier 8 premium has more than it.

German mediums have zero armor anyway, crap depression, so what is there to lose here?

They could have announced this before Tank Rewards was over last month. They knew this was coming.

 

Now all of us can regret picking the AT 15A over the Pudel.

 

Honestly, they keep most of what's coming pretty quiet to all of us. Some are better at speculating than others, but stuff happens with projects all the time so nothing 100% until it is announced. 

 

That is why it's better for us to say "Soon tm," then commit to something that might be coming then changing last minute.

I'm not sure where you're getting this "not mentioned elsewhere" thing from. That was mentioned in the video linked at the start of this thread, it's about 6:23 in.

The new mechanic seems unnecessary.

It sucks, that it happens, KRZY.  You and everyone else kind of get stuck in that crappy inbetween.  WG staff doesn't tell you and then we get upset at you for you not telling us what you don't know.  Meanwhile, you're just trying to get stuff done, for our betterment.

 

Still, what about my Turbo Panther?!?

So the nerf bat that was for the French wheelies are applied to the Polish mediums?

Naw you're still good. The AT-15A is still a much better vehicle than the Pudel, and these Polish mediums are easily at least 6 months off.
