I really doubt WG cares if a line is too powerful or not. I bet player interest vs. cost is the main factor. The Chinese TDs are easy. They were already made up for the Chinese server, and the RU community gave thumbs up. Since most content is shared, EU gets it as well. Money for nothing.

 

Japanese TDs... well, they'd have to be either iconic or inherently interesting to function. Kind of why the medium tank line has died out. Simply not that interesting or even good beyond the Chi-Ri. Heavy tanks survive on being a bit broken and featuring derp guns at every fudging tank from T5/6-10. Because "derp guns are fun".

 

(While WG is notorious for doing exactly the opposite of what they claim to achieve, I get a feeling that the 'bush and rock forts' that cover half the map aren't that healthy for the game - in terms of forcing camping and punishing mistakes. They've nerfed TD viewrange and camo on shooting before. Maybe it's finally time to throw them out of the base, and properly balance 'risk and reward'? In that case, TDs without turrets and/or armor will likely be a fair bit less useful.)

Take a look at this.

Yes, Japanese TD line is perfectly doable and no, they are not too powerful. It is also surprising how they havent implemented them yet, but I guess they have their own priorities. Keep on mind that the Chinese TDs were originally meant to be Chinese server exclusive but our fellow friends Russkies wanted them so WG just decided to add them in the 9.20.The Japanese TD line would have lots of potential and possibilities to be quite a unique branch, probably one of the most unique ones still not implemented in the game.

 

That being said, there has been some talk about the Japanese TDs recently. Given the fact they are about to finish the HD models in next patches as well as the Balance 2.0 is probably nearing its finished state (as they have reviewed hightiers from most of the lines already), so they now have more teams with more free hands on focusing on making new tank branches happen. I would say that Japanese TDs have a pretty high chances to appear in 2018.

If that were so, tovarisch, why do we have any murikan tanks at all in the game then. :girl:

because there are good looking American tanks, whereas the Japanese TD's are just, like aids, but to the eyes
