Ok, we have some new tanks in WoT, but ...

Personally, I don't like Japanise heavies, especially because of their size. And they didn't exist in real world, only on papers / blueprints, right ?

 

It would be much better to have tanks, which existed and had been produced, even if there are some issues with tech tree completion.

Czechoslovak tanks are the right step. Sweden, Hungary, Italy, Poland ... all these contries produced tanks pre / during / post WW2, their tanks had to be in WoT much sooner than these Japanise dreams.

I suspect the answer lies more in the demographic, specifically the computer-gaming population of particular countries.

 

I'm sure there must be some way of introducing an Indian tank line such as British exports to attract some of the 1 billion customers there.

100% agree with you. Czechoslovaks are the 3rd biggest Wot community, that's why they made Czechoslovak tree, even though almost more than %80 of the tree is fictional,blueprint,unsuccesful crap prototypes etc. I assume Polish tree is next after Czechoslovak tree.

And those Japanese heavies shouldn't be in the Wot. Most important reason,, none of them are real!!, and they're soooooooo huge, sluggish,slow rof, boxy armor layout, andd these are soo ugly... These tanks just don't fit in the concept of the Wot. Free exp for sneaky mediums and coward arties.

I don't really like playing arties, and My highest is S-51 just because my friend likes arties so i picked S-51 just because I could play with him, but i think i'm going to start grinding for that 203mm gun .Japanese heavies are so large that missing it is impossible even with my derp gunners.

You have not seen this video, have you ?  ...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhEL4ak-iUs

 

Czechoslovak tanks had been so fictional, blueprints, unsuccessful, etc. .. that Germany had stolen everything after occupation of Czechoslovakia in 1939, and had built a lot of German tanks based on it.

You don't know much about history, right ?

Czechoslovak tanks

You mean,the tanks that were made by Nazis for the Nazis? :teethhappy:

They had no tanks at those days,in a direct meaning. They only had actual tanks,when they got absorbed by the Germany.

All right Czechoslavak buddy, Pz 35 (t) and Pz. 38(t) tanks were really great tanks for their time and very early stage of the war. That's all...Jerries decided to use those tanks, converted some of them into tank destroyers and artilleries, then what? Czechoslovaks wasted their time to develop new tanks for Jerries, but iirc Jerries preferred none of them. Just tell me succesfull, mass produced Czechoslovak tanks other than those Pz 35(t)& 38(t).

i really like wot, but these tanks are so extremely ugly that words cant even describe fully, they should not have been added to the game at all. We got fantastic graphics now, great looking tanks and now we unfortunately going to get "minecraft tanks" which after my opinion is overall going to decrease the gaming quality in all aspects versus increasing it, by adding tanks that not only are super ugly but in additional super fictional at another new level.

 

I guess with the size increase of the japanese heavies then this must be the successor to the Maus at somewhere between tier 11-13, at least this one looks cool :P

Czechoslovakia/Italy/Sweden/Hungary/Romania/Poland... they had very nice vehicles, not all for a full tree but still...far more interesting than SF vehicles. A Zrínyi, a Maresal, a P26, a 7TP, a Strv m/42, these are the vehicles I want to play.
