From Rita's blog. Source = https://ritastatusre...survival-guide/

WG are putting the Chieftain mk 6 into World of Tanks PC.

But only in a special mode :(

 

For goodness sake make a new line for UK and put Chieftain mk 6 at tier X, the forum has already shown you how to do it.

Without the risk of repeating myself...

You will get the 'opportunity' to purchase the Chieftain at some point in the future, I'm certain of it.

Probably get it for free when purchasing a massive amount of gold when they release it as the first Premium Tier X.

A WG employee I knew had already told me it was on the drawing board for WoT. He said it was a plan brought up and not confirmed. Tier X premium tanks called 'Hero' Tanks will (possibly) be available at some point the first of which being the obj 777 and chieftan mk6

 

Edit: The rumoured price tag for these vehicles are a ridiculous £100(ish) which tbh I would spend and play the game as tier 8 prem tank credit grind is painful with current mm.

Ehh, is it even actually confirmed that you get to drive the Chieftain? I dont see any kind of confirmation out there.

 

Anyway, they said that "we would like to have a line for it but there arent fitting lowtier candidates", even though 1) there ARE candidates and 2) considering how you can just unhistorically sabotage tanks (which is what WG does these days), you would very well have a full line of tanks with similar playstyle as the Chieftain. Personally I don't care about the Chieftain at all, considering it wouldn't likely suit my playstyle very well, but I still feel bad because it is probably THE most requested tank that is still not introduced.

It's classic marketing at it's very best.

You create an artificially inflated demand for a product, then tell everyone the can't have it.

We all know they are going to add a 2nd HT line, but what they will add as a tier 8-9, and when. Who knows.

You have shown how to do it. But even so they had to build, test and balance the tier 8 and 9 if they went for those, or what other options they have. And that's not in the game, the tier X kinda is. So it's not like it would be done faster. Issue was never how to do it. It was tested before, it was proven to be broken, they put it on the shelf to focus on other things. Console found it on the dev server, added it to their game, and it was fairly broken there until they nerfed it. Now it's not that bad there. And WG PC could simply take those stats. Then again PC have tested it on their own several times. It's not that long ago sine we spotted a "chieftain_balance_test" account on live. So who knows how "ready" their version is, or what they have done to it since.

 

 

But lets be fair, there are worse issues and other lines to be sorted before I feel they can add more. Yeah I want it to. But no point adding it rushed and broken like most lines before like you lot want them to. Thus I don't mind that they are taking their time. If not... I'm sure it will appear as a premium... because why not? Or a premium variant of the tier X anyway. Tbh it could be the tier X for the 2nd campaign if they can't find or balance the line. Tho then most would just rage, as they will "never" get it.

 

But that said... I'm getting really bored of the zombie meta now.

Two reasons to put the Chieftain into World of Tanks PC

(1) 4,400 were built.

(2) It comes with some fun camo schemes;

I think that many people who request it think it will be good. The disappointment once people realise that it isn't going to be good will be crushing.

Don't forget that Stillbrew is off the table, composite armour is a no-go in WoT. This means that you are left with a paper thin heavy.

I don't want it because it's good, I want it because it's the bloody Chieftain! If I'd only care about good I'd be playing 907 etc.

I went to play AW 2 years ago because Chieftain. Their versions of it are quite good now, they used to suck a lot.

Reasons Chieftan won't come into World of Tanks:

 

1. It's not Russian.

2. It's not German, American or Chinese.

3. It's British.

4. They might have to devise upgrades that make sense (eg an engine that increases horsepower significantly and weight slightly, as opposed to the other way around.)

5. They will have to go to the bother of nerfing it if people like it.

6. There are already enough Brit tanks that they've made ridiculously slow.

7. In Hong Kong... you would already be dead.

8. ???

9. Profit.

Speaking as someone who hasn't even gotten the Object 260 yet, I'd be absolutely ok with that. :great:

Honestly, this could be the best solution. They wouldn't need a line for, nor would it have to be really good. People would still do the missions to get it. Cause it's Chieftain and cause it's an achievement to complete all the missions.

They don't make an immediate profit but they'll have more players engaged with the game and grinding up regular lines to get to the tanks that can complete the missions, some of whom will short-cut their grinds by converting xp using gold or buying premium tanks and/or time so in the long run they'll have more players, more activity and more purchases.

 

It really comes down to the business model and given WG have recently stated there'll be no WoT 2.0, we can only assume they're looking at the long haul rather than short term.
