I owned a PzIV when patch 8.0 came out. On it I had three items of equipment: Medium gun rammer, Vents and Optics. Now, after 8.0, when I go into my garage my PzIV has no equipment. Clearly these were removed with the patch. Were they moved to my depot or sold? (Hard to tell from what I currently have in my depot.  I have all three in the depot now, but they could have been there before - I have heaps of equipment sitting around in my depot.)

It also looks like the 75L70 gun was sold with the patch, not moved to the depot, and any of its shells then on the PzIV sold.  I knew the gun was going, but didn't remove it myself as I figured it would end up in the depot.  I wanted to mount it in the VK3601H, as this is what I intend playing instead of the PzIV from now on.  The shells could have been used on the VK3601H or my StuG III.

As long as they reimbursed us the full cost (not half-cost) for the gun and shells, it doesn't make any difference (and even if they did only pay us half price, the cost isn't that great anyway).  It would just be nice to know where everything went.  The patch notes don't give this level of detail, it seems.

The force-removal of the equipment is actually a good thing.  I am going to play one battle in my PzIV and then sell it, so have saved 30 gold by not having to remove the equipment myself.

In general, when one logs in after a patch it would be good to get a series of messages saying what transactions took place with the patch. For example, the gold we received for the outgoing camouflage, any modules or equipment which were force-sold. Also messages showing which modules and equipment which were force-removed and sent to depot.

Where are the experience points that I used to buy the 75L70 cannon? Did anyone get some kind of free exp. refund for its removal?
Or was I robbed again? :Smile_veryhappy:

Removed gun, thats very sad, but the research points = 4600 and credits = 52.000 from the guns shouldnt be gone.
Patches before we were compesated with free experience points and credits added, why not this time ?

So I am the only one who has equipment still on?

Thats....weird.

I was planing to having it removed for free so I can mount them on M36 or VK32 DB for new German line grind, but it seems WG gave me the finger....

My tank was intact, apart from the turret. I replaced L70 gun with L48 myself yesterday, just to make sure it doesn't vanish. I had Ventilation and Rammer installed and it was still there in 0.8.0 so I sold it along with the tank.

I'm actually happy to have mine force-removed. I don't use gold, so I'd have waste 600k credits buying new Vents and Rammer. I found them in the depot in good shape, as for the gun, I don't know where it is, didn't feel like looking for it right now.
As for XP paid for it, I don't believe it needs to be reimbursed, as you'll have it researched and ready to use for higher tier tanks.

Well, the gun I can understand they don't refund. You can use it on other tanks... but the turret? At least the EXP for the turret?

I wouldn't trouble myself so much. I had 1.000 battles on the old Panzer IV, and I've had 6 on the new. It will be a real test of my patience to get that six into double figures, the tank is so lousy.

For me the equipment was moved to the depot. Good thing as I want to sell the crap Pz IV. The L/70 gun just got replaced with an inferior cheaper L/48 gun with no compensation, while the shells of the L/48 and L/70 should be the same.

Turns out that the equipment was moved to the depot, but the 75mm/L70 gun and its shells simply disappeared, with no compensation.  I raised a ticket with Support, asking them where everything went, and that was the outcome.  They replaced the L70 gun with the L48 gun, and didn't reimburse players for the L70 or charge them for the L48.  SImilarly the L70's shells were removed, and replaced by the L48's shells (in WG's defualt split between AP and HE).  (And no, the L48 and L70 don't use the same shells, as you would think, considering their different penetration and damage powers).

Bit of a ripoff, as the L70 is more expensive than the L48, as are its shells.  I actually had an L48 in my depot before the patch, and wanted to use the L70 on my VK3601(H) (my replacement for the PzIV).  I should have removed the L70 and replaced it with the L48 myself, before the patch.

So lesson for players the next time WG decide to screw up a tank by messing with any of its modules: pre-empt the removal by removing the module yourself, before the patch, as WG will surely screw you over in the transaction within the patch.

New info guys (if someone is still interested):

Greetings Tank Commander,

Thank you for your reply.

Having a closer look at your issue, it's normal the equipment has not been removed. The issue remains for those for whom the equipment was removed.
Unfortunately we can not manually reattached them to the tank. We re sorry that when it comes to patch, some glitches may appear, but that's also the thrill of the online gaming industry. ;)

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

So, all of you who had equipment removed from PzIV actually had a glitch doing them a favor and saving them 30 gold.

The rest of us got the finger from the bugged system, for reason unknown, so it is still on it (and no, I cant play it in its current state, meaning I got 650k lying on a tank I will not use).

Dat WG.... :Smile_smile:
