The matchmaker has rendered all of them nearly useless...you almost always get +1 with these vehicules nowdays...

I've never seen something posted by you to be even remotely constructive or intelligent in any way.

If you think you are some kind of cool troll, i hate to disappoint you but you are just a waste of space and not funny at all....

 

On topic: Or maybe WG will decide to fix the MM in this decade. :sceptic:

From what I#ve read on the usual blogs it's actually one option they're considering ...

One option is to get all the premium tanks back to the garage for credit that was sold for a long time from 2 to 5 years!

 

Sorry bad english!

Most likely they believe that making balanced T8 PMM tanks is too hard, or simply causes matchmaking (mostly on the player side) or team balancing issues. In practical terms the real problem is obviously that T8 tanks as a whole almost never sees T6/7 tanks. My data suggests about 40/60% of T8/9 matches for PMM tanks. Small sample size, but it's not that different from normal T8 tanks.

The idea is likely to rebalance for normal matchmaking in some way, so they can perform on-par with other T8 tanks.

Seeing as PMM was kind of a big deal with these tanks, that might be considered a 'nerf' almost regardless, hence they'll provide the option to sell for full gold value, much like the Super Pershing.

 

Another relevant solution might be to tweak the matchmaking for these tanks without buffing them too much. Can't really see that happening - though it be pretty f-ing funny to only be on top in 3-5-7 in KV-5.  

Jokes aside, the most sensible approach would have been to remove PMM tanks from sale back when they intended to. Then wait, buff them enough to be quite effective in T8 matches, and call it a day, keeping PMM. Sure, it wouldn't be that fair, but most of the rather good premium tanks have 'special' status already. Throwing another set of good tanks into the 'special sale only' pile would hardly be a new thing.

 

(The latter would also require WG to have found replacements in time for most of the lines - which they probably intended to, until a certain balancing guy got his hands on the models and utterly borked them. I have my doubts the Patriot started out as a heavy tank - it's a Jumbo Pershing after all, and both the S.Pershing and Sherman J. kept their class. It's hence likely to have been the replacement for the S.Pershing - just like the Liberté might've replaced the FCM 50t.)

"There isn’t an official decision yet, on what will be done. Wargamin wants to have all options open and available. There is an option to remove the preferential matchmaker, another one to redeem and compensate for something, but all these are still hypotheses, not final decisions. Anton personal opinion is to remove the preferential matchmaker and rebalance these tanks to the current meta."

Are you actually saying +1 tier is hard? I dont know which tank you have but my Panther\m10 is is one of the best tanks I ever bought. So you think you get to play a tank, earn credits with it and then  just get the money/gold  back in full?
And dont exaggerate. Its only +1 most of the time.

Being happy with all non-T8 PMM's but if some even remotely sensible option to get rid of T8's come there are few which I would let go without blinking twice. Yes IS-6, I am talking to you and same goes for jagdtiggy88, maybe 112 too.
