Hey guys, looks like we may be seeing the return of the WTF auf E100! Here's the article from a Polski fan blog:

 

http://rykoszet.info...powroci-do-gry/

 

Long story short, they wanted to make the WTF auf E100 as the top reward for the upcoming personal missions and it looks like they've already made a HD model for it. That in itself doesn't mean much but then Murazor wrote on his FB "is the return of Waffentrager possible? :) " under this picture:

 

Spoiler

 

All sounds cool, right? BANG! WGs financial department gets involved to crush your hopes and dreams - the vehicle is now being tested as a possible tier VIII premium tank. Games balance not dead enough!

 

Obviously before we grab pitchforks and torches, this is just a possibility not a confirmed "rumour" but since Murazor himself got involved and there's a new model for it...

 

So what do you guys think? Not enough tier VIII German TDs? ;P

 

EDIT:

 

Short update:

 

http://rykoszet.info...er-auf-e-100-p/

 

Waffentrager auf E100 (P) is currently being tested on the supertest server as a tier X premium, probably as a reward. It could be just for the Chinese server (but I think it's going to be there in the next patch) so don't grab pitchforks just yet.

No, no more WarGaming™ tanks please, don't even care if balanced or not broken. Especially no to KongZhong™ tanks.

The return of the Waffelträger would be like reintroducing smallpox to Africa.

If he have non autoloading 128mm gun, it would be like Skorpion.

 

So i bet they give him autoloader, man time to look at another game  :confused:

I would buy it, but only if they made it as small as E25.

Smallpox wasn't that bad in Africa, I think you mean N+S America. Weirdly it still exists in India.

I've accidentally wiped the poll so cast again. I'm not going to touch it from now on just in case I f**k up something. Sorry guys! :(

Yeah. Was focusing more on not directly implying that spreading disease is something that Wargaming would do.

Yeah, it had the JagdTiger gun, which would be complete overkill on T8 given the upcoming ISU Nerf. I sure hope it's a fake due to misinterpretation of sources. Murazor isn't exactly a reliable source even though he got the "Head of balancing" title assigned.

This could be a very hard tank to balance at T8, I would imagine it being an auto-loading Skorpion which could get quite messy.

You had the T10 version didn't you?  How did you find that tank?  Did you do well in it?

So the E-100 version is tier VIII and the Pz. IV Waffentrager is tier IX.

 

Logic..

 

I don't think this is happening..  just doesn't make sense at all. The only way it would be balanced is if it gets a 105mm autoloader which would make the entire thing even weirder.

How exactly would it be a tier VIII premium if updated stats for HD waffle state "2000hp"?

Or you just wanted to create a shitstorm knowing this community happily jumps on every hype train?

It was cursed for me, I tried to play the support role carefully and hide for reloads, but my teams seemed intent on suiciding most of the time, and you could not really carry in that tank. I remember the last battle, it was on Highway and I did several thousand damage in town already and the remainder of my "team" successfully died while I was on reload again and I managed to unload that last clip before the vultures got me and I went to the garage and I sold this tank and I logged off for 6 months in sheer disgust. I really expected better teamplay from top tier teams, I was naive back then, but I have gotten over it now.

And if they wanted an 105mm autoloading candidate, there is an eminently suitable Austrian candidate (well what other nation would Austria fit better into?), the Kürassier K.

Tier 8 prem with original 6 shot autoloader I reckon.  That'll show all those defender owners & anyone who ever liked tiers 6-10. Oh wait, they'll probably be the same people buying this.  Oh wait some more, it'll be me!!!  Damn.  Looks like it's my fault the game broke so don't blame WG.  Soz all :(.

 

Lets face it, if they release the WT with anything less than the original gun but the original model it'll be nothing more than the HP pinata it was a lot of the time anyway & if it's the top personal mission reward, it's going to be tier x.

It was a tank that was seriously broken a 10% winrate tomato could take down at least one other tier 10 tank even if it got caught in the open. Conversely because of its low speed, long reload and paper turret the size of a kv1 it was difficult to actually carry a game in if you ended up 1 v multiple.  It should not return.

That tank should have never been in the game. It was impossible to balance. Please no.
