As we all know, the patch will make the Foch 155 a buffed reward tank and anyone who owns it will get the new Foch 50 B for free. A lot of people are currently grinding the tree for this reason.

 

Problem: we don't know how much time we have. 1 week? 2 weeks? Longer? Nobody wants to start the grind if they can't finish it.

 

Request: I understand an exact release date can't be given, but can you release an official statement saying that the patch won't hit before a certain date? Meaning you can guarantee us X amount of time before it is released? That would be great, thank you.

 

I would be very disappointed if I continue my grind only to find out the patch is released a few days from now, before I finish, and I'm sure others are in the same boat! Please do us this favor.

It's not unheard for WG EU to have issues announcing the weekend special the day before, and official statements out of the very ordinary and pre-planned are practically unheard of.

 

Judging from the recent free XP special, they want you to be 'scared'. :D

Converting free exp is a last resort, so if the patch hits unexpectedly I won't be able to spend my money on time. This is in their best interest too!

 

It doesn't hurt to try. Positive thinking, guys. Ph3lan has the connections to make this happen if he wants to, I'm sure. It doesn't have to be a super official statement on their website or anything, just a comment on this forum that we will have at least X more days before the patch hits. Even if it's just a (conservative) estimate, I will be happy. Right now we have no clue, it could be in a few days, it could be in two weeks.. Internally they must have some sort of timeline.

"End of summer" is too vague. I'd like to know how much time I at least have left to do this. If someone from WG comes in here and says "don't worry the patch is at least 1 week away" or w/e then I will be happy.

The only ones from WG that comes here are moderaters those that have something with patch release to do dosent come here sorry to say it.

but reading what was said in the link postet i would guess around August 29-30.since there is 13 days betwenene first and 2`nd test so math means those dates unless they need a third CT test.

Let me put it this way:

9.18 was announced 1h before the servers were taken down for the actual update (time is no longer visible but notice the date of the announcement and the time for the downtime) and the German LT revision was posted after it happened, which is funny, considering that's where it was actually announced how compensations would be dealt.

Spoiler

 

tl;dr: don't hold your breath for news

The community managers can get this info if they want to. Devs don't post here but the community managers can contact the right people. The whole purpose of a company's webcare department is to provide an online link between the customer and the company. 

 

I haven't given up hope yet! I messaged Ph3lan.

While I managed to grind the required XP for the Foch 155 I can understand the stress others are going through. So here is another bump to this thread. :)

We should assume patch will hit at the end of august and be ready for that date. My bid would go for 23 august. Maybe 30 but most probably 23. Good luck to all.

Mods, can we get a helping hand here? We are not asking for an exact release date of 9.20 but the furthest date from now that will surely not be the release date so people grinding the Foch 155 might have an approximation of time left.

Well, I kinda understand your concern guys but it'll come when it comes. Our Community Team will let you know once they have information which they can forward to the Forums and other social media. 

Now my personal guess, and please note this is not a official statement of any kind since I don't know either when the update is gonna hit us so please don't quote me on that, is that its gonna be after Gamescom.
