T-50-2 MT-25 (Russian bathtub) switch is imminent.  :hiding:

P.S. Someone wrote the thread title with too much haste.

T-50-2 --> MT-25, logical switch. Good, good.

And what's with ripping off us T-50-2 owners?
That new tank costs significantly less experience (not to mention it's way easier to get it through KV-1S now) than T-50-2 and we get one skill-less crew member. What about the rest of crew that has 2+ skills + 1 crew member that has none?

I invested my time on it, and now you are ripping me off!

Good stuff. New maps are always great. Getting some olds back would be nice as well, but hey... So the russians will get a new branch in 8.8? Hmm... I am split about this. On one hand I love new vehicles, on the other I have been hoping to see more French vehicles for more than half a year now. I really like new stuff, but don't you think American, Russian and German already have enough vehicles? French have been around for more than a year now but yet they don't have a single vehicle more than necessary to have a "full" techtree. Brits will have more vehicles after this update!
I like the patch and, I am looking forward to see those russian Meds. The only thing I wonder: do you hate the French?

I actually hate the T-50-2 but I agree with all people who have it. It is really cheaky and a rip off that Wargaming wants to switch those tanks. If they do something like that to one of mine I would stop playing. Simple as that. It was bad enough when they downgraded the VK28.01 just because Polish and Russian kiddies were crying so much.

Wargaming should think a little more and not bring updates every month or every 3 week but rather every 3 months. I am sorry but in 3 months you lean a lot more about the game, weak spots in MM or balancing and so on. In three weeks you just cant have the same results. Wargaming is doing everything wrong possible! How can you throw away such a good platform?

They should really think about this and try and understand that a lot of people, maybe the ones who don't yell the loudest and aren't always the most present in the forum, would like things to slow down a little. Give more time and thought into a lot of aspects.

So my time invested in grinding for the T-50-2 is useless now, crew trained on 178% level is ripped with the new radio operator,
we're getting a new arty branch after the arty is nerfed (they'll make it a bit OP to atract players, then they will rebalance it too)
some minor changes for a few maps
a new map ... based on a concentration camp
6700 gold for a tier VII Hetzer/StuG
worst patch since I remember
Also, who the hell tought that giving out patch a month after previous patch is a good idea? WG slow down ffs, chill

Is there going to be any refund for the experience, trained crew members and gold spent on camo for the T-50-2?

I'm still confused why you have to play a heavy in order to get to a scout of the same tier. There are already 2 other vehicles coming from the KV-1S. There must be a better option.

So when he says the new soviet top tier medium will be 'interesting and unique in it's own way' toward the end of the vid....does this translate to 'it's going to be as weak and easily penned as the british tier 8-10s and the german leopard variants? Or does he mean 'it's a Russian tank and therefore it'll travel through all terrain faster than any other nations tanks, have an amazing gun, share the same invisibility cloaks, have armour that the Hulk wouldn't be able to penetrate, and generally prove once and for all that Russian tanks are ftw? Just asking.

And secondly, isn't the new map named after a Russian concentration camp? If so, meh, go figure! Sounds like a case of 'do as we say...don't do as we do'

Yeah no words anymore whatsoever. Bet they realized that 80% will sell this tank and they dont want so much "free" gold on server.
My SP stands untouched for over 2 month now, i just wait for the refund to come and then bye bye SP.
Tank was good prior the gold ammo thing, now its just crap or lets say a lot harder to master. As i dont want to shoot "premammo" all the time i became useless on battlefield.
