You probably have all seen what SirFoch or Orzanel, etc. had to say about Obj. Cyka Blyat (because every C B can perform well in it).
But be warned, my thought is that they aren't that mad.
They want to make fuss about it. Then, they will give it predesigned statistics they had all the time. (Still on par with current powercreep of tier 8 premiums).

They just want to desensitize us.

 

Edit:
Remember how something similar happened to German ships in WoWS?

I'd argue that Obj.252U is flat out better than previous premiums just because of that alpha and armor profile. Frontal armor profile can contest even some tier 10s.

And that's exactly what they want you to hear. "It's OP, WG is going for P2W!"
They want fuss, sensationalism. And then they will release tank with different statistics, which they already have set.
They will be on par with current premium powercreep, so that it's not worse.

Either way, I'll throw every last premium HE of the 41st Year Type my tier 9/10 heavies are getting.

Let them cry as their armour fails to protect and get slapped with a good 500 damage per hit, if not more.

Might even go up to about 600 average depending on where I hit it.

 

I suppose we could make call for people not to buy it...

...but I realise fully well that it'd be pointless to do so.

That would sound plausible if it were any other company, but there's a strong possibility WG really is this clueless.

I doubt, it's company that employs 200 or more people. It would be silly if they ramped it up this fast. This is all fiesta for news.

But they are already harming the game and planning awful changes to the game mechanics. What kind of developer lies to the people just to get their attention. Trash tier tactic

Well already the Patriot and Scorpion are painfully powerful for premiums and the general "lets remove weakspots and nerf accuracy" that they keep going on about is going to make this game horrible to play in the next year if they go through with it. I really hate that they are planning these awful changes to the game I've spent a lot of money, time and grew to love over the years. At least they are making the arty a bit less ridiculous, maybe...

I would think this might happen if they haven't released the clown tanks and Skorpion which are superior to the tanks of the same tier.

Would you buy a new premium tank which is worse than your current one?

Exactly my thoughts. They want to make money, that's why they release new premiums.

Important part was that they would release it on current powercreep level of tier 8 premiums.
Of course they won't make it worse than all the other same russian HTs, what would be the point of it.

One thing I take from the current fuss around the Object is that it'll be worth hanging on to an IS-6 because there's a chance it'll be buffed in a year's time when it's no longer in the shop and regular tanks have been updated to keep pace with the premiums.

Because it is the right nation and class, or because it's playstyle suits me better, or because it's interesting, or just fun to play.

Of course, there are limits on how much worse it can be and still have some interest to buy.

On the other hand, I won't buy a clowntank regardless of how OP it is, as I simply refuse to pay for a constant insult.

Indeed, with some backbone to my claims.
They did similar thing with new german ships in WoWS. OP on supertest, and on day of release they nerf them.

Guess what, next OP premium showed up.

M4A3E8 Thunderbolt with 127mm (raw) frontal at tier 6, and some of it might be spaced because yay, why not.

I bet all the tomatoes are going to love that ~155mm effective frontal armour.

And best of all? It has more mobility than the jumbo sherman because why not.

 

WG, can we please get premiums for the nations that actually need them?

WoT has been given and seen off more death sentences than a Texas prision. This one won't be any different.

Well, it's certainly possible.
Yet, with powercreep for right price, LT changes, etc. seen more saying they had enough than ever before.
