Today we recieved information about FV 215b being replaced. What you think will be next line with similiar switch of tier X to start to grind already?

 

E50M or IS4 line? Other?

IS4 of course. Why would it be E50M?

Well, I don't think we're going to see any of the newer tanks go that way any time soon, so that rules out the Swedish, and Czech tech trees along with the Type 5. Leopard was a very famous and very real tank, so no. E50M, while kinda just an E50 and slightly fictitious as a result, people don't complain about how much it sucks, like they did with the FV and Foch, so no again. Waffle has already gone. 268 should be easy enough to fix. Honestly the only even vaguely plausible candidates that come to mind are the E5 and IS-4, but honestly, the FV and Foch were unusual in how much dislike they received from the community at large.

i remember to read somewhere (or maybe heard on gamescom?) that they plan to switch all non-existent tanks from top tiers so go figure...

 

However, they were saying earlier about that funky two gun mechanic that would be implemented in ST-II which was meant to replace IS4. Doubt they are ready for that... from the other side though it would happen just before christmas so im not sure either... everything is possible in that time,lol.

Will it definitely be replaced or will there just be two tier 10s like they did on Xbox?

​FV will become special tank like 155

 

Grille 15 still on their radar for changes / replacement. I think I read that in one of the Gamescon Q&As

FV 215B 183 is quite strong candidate too because it plays absolutely nothing like the branch before it.

 

Object 430 is another one because there are 3 tanks before it with rear mounted turrets.

IMO biggest chances have russian tanks now. They'd probably switch Godzilla among other british changes. Like leggasiini said, Obj 430 has really messed up road to the top (i dont mind but these are other playstyle than top) and they already said they want to change something with russian mediums trees (it was before vacations). 

New STG has something to it probably too. 

I guess ill speed up my russian lines after i get FV215b :)

The Type 5 is not getting replaced by anything.

 

...Unless you mean the FV 215 183. However, it is not being replaced next patch yet. There would have been news about it ages ago if that was the case.

They have mentioned the grille 15 and IS4 are the next trees to be reworked.

I don' think this 2 tanks will be removed. It shouldn't be difficoult to rebalance them, so why bother to create a new tank?

Grilel 15 they arent happy with the concept.

IS4 makes more sense as tier9 and STI as tier10.

Back in ye olden days, E50M was mentioned as a tank the developers didn't really like. Fictional variant of a "napkin tank".

 

Nowadays, that doesn't appear to matter that much.

From the looks of it, they're changing the T10 tanks that do not really fit into their tech trees. So from this we can speculate what tanks will be replaced next.

That's the one switch they have talked about where they kinda know what to switch it with. Tho iirc, they did say the ST-II was one of 2 candidates. And if the Russians are the next tree to get reworked, it might come sooner then you think. Considering the next few patches are balanced focused.

I thought they went away from that when they changed half the staff, just like the removal wave of limited MM tanks did suddenly stop after the Jagdtiger 88.

Xbox just did that, as they thought it was the best way to get both tier X's in. As they took the end version from the first test wave of the Chieftain and tossed it on the tech tree.  And not the Super Conq like we are getting now. The deal is that WG PC has a 2nd UK HT line planned, that ends with the Chieftain.
