Hello!

 

Check out the new Dev Diaries going over the American Heavy Yoh tanks.  Are they ugly? Yes!  Am I still excited for more American Heavies? Yes!

Aesthetically more Yuck than Yoh, if you ask me.

American medium line next?  Or does Minsk only introduce new lines if they have some moronic gimmick to make them "special"?

It give the Russian heavies something to hit god help us if rng allows a miss on a U.S tank.

 

Also, Yoh is code for Yolo more fodder for the Russian heavy - gg,  good job Developers

 

As you may note this is sarcasm......

I dunno.  Making a line of these seems kinda risky.   Shouldn't Wargaming just release them one at a time as premium tanks?  They are American, after all.

Funny thing about "new" .."track concept " in reality all tanks have it already. A tank is NEVER FULLY IMMOBILIZED BY SHOOTING OFF ONE TRACK.. The other is more then sufficient to back up and move forward in a turn. In fact this is how tanks turn all the time ! Shooting off one track is just a phony game mechanic to make the game go quicker. It really isn't fair to most casemate tds.

American tech tree hasn't had some fresh blood in awhile. I always love me a good weird looking tank.

I love how ugly/cool these look. Regardless of the track system, they look so funky!

If only we could get an actual T54 and T95 medium lines. The T54E1 and E2 (Renegade) are medium tanks and it was non-sensical to change them to heavies for NO good reason. Well, probably because heavy tanks are more expensive premiums. So far tanks that could be in those two lines are used as nothing more than Clan Wars and reward vehicles.

 

Also there are still the M60A1 and A2 tanks that should be in the tech tree.

 

But WG insists on stupid gimmicks is required to get people interested. Seems like the game is becoming World of Tank Gimmicks.

 

Still, it is about time the US tree has gotten an update.

I actually agree. Also when WG implemented the hand-brake turn, I find it silly that only lights and mediums get to enjoy that feature. Make the more mobile class even more mobile. While the tank class that mostly have no turret cannot have handbrake turn.

What if... hmm I know it may sounds revolutionary but, What if: You focus on making the game fun and balanced, instead of adding napkins tanks!?!?

I know I know! Its a radical though process...

 

Also, tier10 hull on a tier8 tank... HHHMMMMMM??? Wonder why it sounds so familiar... .cough: cough:  Defender cough: wheeze:...

I'd be more happy if they upped the turtle slow speed of many American tanks and gave them guns that could pen more than soft butter. What value is good gun handling if it just makes it easier to bounce shots?

These were speculated for Blitz back in June;

The Chieftain did an article about them in February 2013;

The Armored Patrol covered them in September with an excellent Mark Felton video;
