Dear All,


Recently, we have heard many rumors about Tier X premium vehicles. It's quite interesting to read players analysis and find out more about possible parameters of these tanks.  
I would, however, like to clarify a few things before it will go any further.

These vehicles are not premium tanks and therefore players will not able to purchase them from the in-game store or gift shop. Also, these vehicles cannot be researched and they won't be included in any branch or Tech Tree.

These tanks are made as a part of special high-level content, on which we are currently working. They will be comparable with other Tier X tanks of their types.
Unfortunately, we cannot share any more details. Please, wait for an official announcement. Thank you!

Special 'hello' to conspiracy theories fans!  :smile:

Kind regards,
Supercharge

I want to ask this:
Is Wodka the nourishment at WG ?
This german VK4502 rip-off is soooo ugly, please, for gods sake... please choose another design.
WG have already buggered the JGPZ E100, not this thing too.

Well, if we are not beeing fooled there are two options:


-It is a "fight the monster tank" game mode, where 15 players have to take down one of these.
-It is a super fair game mode, where everyone has the same 3 tanks available.

My reaction after seeing RU tank - WOOOOOOOW

After seeing US tank - WOOOOOOOOW

After seeing German tank - KILL IT WITH FIRE!

But any additions are welcome, just don't keep them away for too long.

That german tank looks like the WG interpretation of the VK 7001 (K). It´s a heavier Krupp design variant of the already well known Löwe we already have as a tier 8 premium tank. Other names for the VK 7001 (K) were "Krupp-Maus" or "Tiger Maus", There have been several studies with weights of 110 to 170 tons. No idea, which one this could be, but the gun looks like the 15cm gun we already know from the E-100.

However, the design with the rear mounted turret was considered to be the "leichter Löwe", while the tank we know uses the design of the "schwerer Löwe".
Well, we will see :-)

it would've been horrible if there were t10 premium tanks that are just as good as T10 tanks and maybe even make easy profit....

but T10 tanks that only a small part of playerbase can even achieve, that's even worse!... cant wait hearing what the hell this is going to be. O.o

So then CW seasons should be close. They talked about nice rewards for the winners (not only gold). Most likely these tanks are part of the rewards. But the question remains: What's the purpose of this tank?
1) Just another T10
2) Something special that other tanks don't have (so will be used in CW battles, giving advantage for the owners)
3) "Premium" tank that will be better moneymaker then t8 premiums

Now thinking about it - probably "premium T10" - slightly weaker then other T10s, but incredible moneymaker. This will force mass interest to the CWs (or at least they hope). Most of the clans that are not part of alliance are not interested in CW, but the introduction of seasons in CW will change that. With this move they hope to involve more players in CW (so they will have goal and grind $$$ more T10s of course).
