Dear wargaming,

 

On the off chance any one of you might be reading this, I only have one request. Please, and I mean PLEASE don't make the fv215b(183) a special vehicle. Give us who are relatively new to the game a chance to get it; to give it a true spin. I don't want to grind to the fv4005, because the 215-183 has its own special quirks.

 

So please, just please rethink the removal of the 215b (183), for it is a legendary tank that people will hate to see go.

 

Yes, I know it won't be removed per say, but it will be "specialised" for lack of better words. Please just keep this magnificent tank up to grind towards. You could just split up the tier X branch like you did with the soviet mediums. After you research the tortoise, you can choose between the FV215B(183) and the FV217 "badger".

 

Sincerely,

A player stuck at the alecto who really wants the 183.

-Pro_Auda

Change is about 30 to 40 days away. If you are on the Alecto.. I would start grinding like a mad man.

 

And considering all the planning that goes into to a patch, and the work they put into the new tier X.... I doubt they will put it on hold so a few more will get it. Because when you get it. There is always someone else that want's to grind towards it suddenly that's new. And we start all over again.

 

Sure they could split it. But... I suspect that goes against the new "consistency" thing they have going of late. As the 183 is the odd one out on that line.

Wait till you get to the AT2. Then you'll wonder if it's all worth it.

Agreed. It's just a game and it's just not worth it to nolife that hard.

I managed to do the FV215b grind while not no-lifing, because I was already on the Churchill VII, I had like a month and spent like 20€ to skip high-tier stock grinds.

Now now AT2 is probably the best in the line, T6 to 8 aren't good, Tortoise is at times ok, deathstar can be a 1 shot wonder....

GL with the grind...

No, that tank is gamebreaking and a bad design. I am dissapointed they arent taking this opportunity to remove the tank entirely, which would be good for the game. But alteast this will limit their number.

It is really not that fun after they nerfed the gold ammo.

The whole line is something like 700k XP ... Totally doable for 30 days. 23-25k XP per day.

im always surprised how we can play this game without so much issues  when half of the tanks, mechanics or maps are "broken" 

i asked so many times and not once  someone tried to explain how you messure brokeness

 

what is ok and what is broken ? and why is it broken?   no one want to tell  and probably even couldnt even if he/she wanted to

 

something like a scale? some  stats?  for me it always seemed like "i dont like it" clad in words that should make it independant from the person and their feelings

 

whats broken for you isnt neccessary broken for me or everybody on the server

and if there are no objective aspects to look at it how can it be broken?

 

also OP do you think the russian speaking developers come here and use google translate just to read your post ? even more to you think they would listen to you  when everything else being writen here is ignored ?   is it strong selfconfidence or something else ?

 

even if you were to go to the russian forum (the only one that seem to have at least some impact on the developers) would your post make them change their plans ?

even if you think about these deadlines earn them money   more ppl running premium accounts, buying boosters, exchange exp for free exp 

with thesestuff they can earn money or at least drain the players so that they might need some more stuff in the future

 

so will they  give up on their money and listen to a player that not even plays 2 games per day?

 

also i doubt you would even play that tank when you loost at least 30-40k credits per round   andthat could go easily up to -70k and that without rations or premiumconsumables  so if you go for it loosing more than 100k per match dont seems impossible  

with your is6 performance you would need about 5-20 farmgames to compansate 1  game with it ...

 

killshots are bad for you  getting 300 damage for paying 8k a shell...

not penning your target

not hitting at all 

its just some rare situations with scoring 2k damage per shell that might  fuel some desire to play it

But, do you want a new player rushing the tiers straight to tier 10?

yeah yeah and with the 5x event that daily ration would be 2 games ^^

 

thought i tried the grind for the foch 155 even owning the T8 one it was so painfull i gave up after like 30k exp since playing it was a pure torture if you work at the same time on the tvp you feel like quitting after less than 5 games a day

the british line is at least more decent to play than the french one

Dude, that is weakscauce talks. When I got my very first Tier 10, which was the Leopard 1, I grind from the Tier 8 Indien Panzer to Tier 10 within 8 days, the same patch they introduced it into the game. Without Premium Account at that time.
Get your act together :justwait:
Tier 6 and 7 on the Brittish were cancer for me. Tier 8 is much more of a sweet cupcake for me. French TDs - much more pleasant experience, for me at least.

Splitting it would mean I'd have to buy and grind through Tortoise again to get the badger. You want to screw over people who already own the 183.

With XP boosters on grinding a tier 10 is piece of cake now, a month should see it easily done

unicum + prem account + 100% xp booster = 40k xp in 2 hours on a tank that doesnt suck [edited], lets say 35k on a tank that sucks; 2h a day = 23 days -> no nolifing and by the time the patch hits tonk is in garage. I grinded fv215b (started on church VII) in 4 days, i think excluding free xp that was ~500k xp in 4 days at something like 42-45k xp per 2h. Just gotta commit.

If you can play for 2h+ per day.

AT 2 is fine. More than fine, really. Best tank in the line.

I would not listen to this. People seldomly know what's good for the game and WG has been improving every patch. The players are the biggest issue. Not necessarily the vehicles, in a general sense.

In his account, he can do as he pleases. Including rushing through tiers. Besides, as of now, there are plenty of poor players in Tiers VIII+ so, one more will hardly change anything.
