Will the feauture also work for tanks that were owned/received/purchased previous to 9.16?

I had the T1E6 and T7 Combat Car in the garage (got it for free) ages ago but sold it in 2013. Will the recovery work on those? They are classified "rare tank", right? so theoretically there is no recovery period.

 Following the release of the update, you will be able to get back crew members as well as Premium and Special-event tanks dismissed and sold after the launch of version 9.16:

 guess, that answers it.

Yes, will I now be able to recover my CombatCar that I sold before they buffed it then wouldn't let me have back.

Well it says you can recover tanks that were sold after 9.16 so I recon no to anything already sold is gone for good.

 

Annoying but then imagine players sending in tickets about tanks they sold 4 years ago.

Can you please post the list of the new bugs that will be added into the game with the new update?

 

And why was the "tank gun pointer" thingy removed from the minimap?

To prevent abuse. You can recover a tank for a selling price anytime (the "1 tank in 3 days" rule is nothing, really)? Sell all special tanks (that you can recover anytime), enjoy free slots until you grind something you want (or not, people differ).

 

It's still done as something you shouldn't rely on to do regularly.

It must do as they are not for sale in-game, but are occasionally from the gift shop as special 'rare' tanks and as mission rewards. The CCar must count as a rare vehicle with no time limit surely?

Good to see people are even managing to complain about this. All is well in the universe.

If there was no cost it would act as a free extension to the garage.

This looks like a good feature, although I don't think there's anything that I've personally sold/dismissed that I'd want to use it for.

 

But I do think that it would be better to simply allow any premium/reward tank to be rebought for silver once it's been bought for gold or unlocked for an account (presumably for twice as much silver as it was sold for, since that's how tanks bought for silver work). That would just seem more simple and consistent. :)

 

Definitely looking forward to the 9.16 patch, anyway - looks like it'll have a lot of good updates and features. Good work guys. :)

Well I hope they fix the ammo bug thats been driving me crazy fired off a load of HEAT last night when I meant to fire HE.

 

Used to be able to reorder the ammo so I could have HE as the default.

Ohh.. I thought it was a problem due to XVM mod :teethhappy:..  I faced the same problem with Panzer IV H.
