Update 9.8 will see four Premium Tanks fall out of the parade for the last time.

SU-85i is nice... RAM is pretty good in close combat... the other two are awful. Really disappointed by Pz IVS.

Ram is shell rammer.

SU-85I OP.

Sexton I is a joke.

But Pz.IV Vaderturm?

For the tier,the turret is made out of concrete,gun is laser-accurate,and pen more than suitable...

FML dude...

I usually get high tier battles, where the turret is made out of cheese and my AP shells magically bounce even on the bums of tier 8 tanks... never had luck with it, it might sound like blasphemy but I like the Panther/M10 more.

Working as intended

I am confused.  I thought that only the restricted MM tanks were being removed - but the Panzer IV Schmalturm gets regular matchmaking so why is it being removed?

Same for the Sexton. I don't get it either. Oh, and the Ram. So, only one of the tanks actually gets pref. mm. Maybe they are just trying to squeeze one last bit of cash out of unpopular prem vehicles?

Just a hint, I'm not sure if it's legit or not, but I've read somewhere that the PzIV S will get it's side-golf ball catchers made as spaced armour when it gets to HD , Soon™:P:harp:

Yup, whilst simultaneously adding new premium vehicles which are practically carbon copies of existing vehicles in terms of overall perfromance, but just with a unique skin and premium tank credit earnings (Berlin trio, I am looking at you).  

 

Blatant cash grab is blatant.

From Q&A on Status Report blog yesterday - "Storm confirms: Panzer IV Schmalturm will be removed from sales because it's not popular".  Must admit I play quite a lot of mid-tiers at the moment and I rarely see the Pz IV S.  Compared to the T-25 it's pretty rare

THIS

the leak said thats the reason.. unpopular vehicles. PZ4S is a great tank though.. but its not a tier 8... and then theres the thing that PZ4S existed in the game before as a regular tier 5.. but it was removed and sold for money since

My conspiracy theory is that soon all premium tanks will be removed from the in-game store. There will only be an option of getting one by buying it through the premium shop.

I hope they do that. Only some exact wot players can make in game golds, so in-game store only works for them while we pay for gold.

WG WTF honeslty!!!???

 

1) You do realize that if you remove all premium tanks tiers 2-6 and add more premium tanks on tiers 7-8 then the insane amounts of pawels and tomato soups will buy the tier 7-8 vehicles and thus ruin the game-play in those tiers. All those lovely 300 avg dmg T34 players...

2) I have 0/4 of those and I was planning to have the RAM, Sexton and Su-85I in the future. (after 2-4 years because there are not enough gold gaining events) I have spent 0$ for this game and so I am screwed and will never have these 4 tanks...

3) Please put more premium time on those bundles and don't forget to add some gold and silver.

 

This is just plain stupid. Why do you need to remove unique tanks? I'm not sure about the majority of WoT players but I myself and most people on the forums are not meat bags whose money can be sucked out infinitely.

Quick, let's all buy them because they're about to become very rare tanks....have some of them already and never play them. WG are becoming extremely desperate now, what was ever the harm of leaving them in the store....why remove them other than it being another blatant money grabbing strategy from WG...it's freakin pathetic but I suspect loads will fall into the trap, and again another package deal with unwanted goods along with the tanks. I am really starting to give up on them now.

That must be it. Let's face it, these tanks are very unpopular. I barely see any while playing. I don't think they will be missed.

 

I like the Sexton, the others I haven't played much.
