Pretty much every tank is in HD graphics now apart from the STI, FV215b and BatChat, i know the BC is having changes in 9.20 or something and they are making it HD then.

 

The STI and FV don't have HD graphics, anyone know if they are changing anything with these two tanks, i'm only interested because the STI is one of my favorite heavy tanks and i enjoy playing is as it is. The FV because, i'll cut straight to it, is simply put THE WORST MOST APOLITICALLY AWFUL PATHETIC EXCUSE FOR A TANK IN THIS GAME AND I PHOOKENG HATE IT and im thinking about selling it to get some credits for the jap med line that im grinding, about to get the type 61.

 

So is there a reason why these two tanks HD models have been postponed or is it just some kind of phunny WG practical joke how the tier 2 french arty is HD but not a tier 9 Russian HT?

There are plans to replace the STI with the IS4 and put a STII, ( STI with double guns) at tier10. So thats prob why.

 

The FV also has rumours to be replaced, there was something about a superconqueror ( or chieftain).

I do believe WG has a very complex system to pick the next tanks to get HD models, its just rather hard to explain it in layman's terms

Well I don't know about putting the STII ingame, see MTLS balance issues. I do think they should swap the IS-4 and STI around, the turrets and names anyways, leave the gun stats and hulls where they are. It's never made sense to me that the STI which is an IS-4 with an experimental upgraded turret is a tier lower.

 

The problem with removing the completely fake FV215b, is afaik it's rather popular with players of your skill level, so they might be wary of winge of a purple hue. So WarGaming is probably taking longer than normal to decide because of that.

FV isn't getting a HD model because WG loves dangling a Chieftain-shaped carrot in front of UK tank enthusiasts even though they have no intention of getting it within reach of anyone outside CN server because WG hates the British and their tanks.

Stick with the conq, its a better tank, i have better average dmg in the tier 9 than 10, save yourself 6 million credits.

Could also be that someone with the first name of Victor, really likes "pwning noobs" with it on russian server. Anyone know his username to check this out?

Pretty sure that much of the ST-I/IS-4 line is still lacking HD.

T-150, KV-4 and ST-1 are all in the same boat.

if fv215b has to be removed because its fake how many others?

 

JPE100 for a start, Mauschen, probably most jap heavies, e50m, gw tiger, gwe 100, and probably plenty others

 

edit, e50 or e50m as only fag packet drawings but technical intention were drawn up, rear wheel drive, all in one engine and gearbox, external suspension etc
