Here you go folks the first look at the Italian tank tree hope you speak Russian :trollface:

 

The tanks you see in the videos are the tanks the Italian tree will be facing, but it shows the Italian tree and images of the Italian tanks, was not sure if the tree was real, but continued searching and found the same tree on several sites.

If you cant be bothered to watch the videos full tree shown at start of 3rd video.

 

Tiers 1 to 3

 

 

 

Tier 4 to 7

 

 

Tier 8 to 10

I would take it with a pinch of salt though.

2nd half of 2019, Dutch tech tree, I am calling it.

Low tiers US light tanks that were too crappy to be in the US tree or premium tank.

High tiers full of clones.

 

PS: I love how WG can't make up their mind  wheter they want to call the tier 10 Italian non autoloader tank a Lion, Lepardino or just OF-40

Nice and fun for Italian WoT players (which there are quite a few of; it's the sixth most populous country in Europe (fifth if Russia is excluded)), but I kind of fail to see where the gimmick is. Sweden has some interesting tanks, Czechoslovakia too. Italians look like a boring copy-paste at the higher tiers, and the lower tiers aren't that special, at least not in WoT terms.

 

The realistic assumption given the lack of a 'gimmick' is of course that it's gonna get some overbuffed (T10) tanks. OF-40 could be a buffed Leopard 1, with two alternatives:

1. Standard WG-buff as seen on AMX 30B. Unlikely; too uninteresting. Might not fit well with the M47 (which is essentially the elite US T9 M46 IIRC).

2. "Super-Leopard 1"; as promoted by e.g. Tajj7. Pretty much buffed gun parameters to reinforce its role as a non-brawler. More likely. Gimmick, consistent playstyle ...what's not to like (well, except that they're shafting the Leopard 1 owners of course). Likely solution, given that the OTO Centauro is an autoloader - Wargaming's focus on 'consistent gameplay' means they want a non-autoloader at the end.

 

Regardless, with two T10s off a T9, we can assume that the M47 will suck meatballs through a straw.

The realistic assumption is that most forumites are whiney self-righteous min-maxers who insist anything new must be significantly different and then whine at the lack of balance that results from anything new being significantly different.

If the FIAT 2000 remains as the tier 1, then it'll be all the memes; 40 tons, barely any speed/armour, and a 65mm derp.

Imagine Mittengard with 8 of them on each team. :trollface:

Should have done a European tree. Combine those nations that made a handful of tanks, not enough for their own tree. This Italian tree seems a bit bare really...

|They do mention in the trailer that the two new trees will bring a new mechanic with them.

 

Maybe wheeled vehicles will be that mechanic :P

Now you're assuming too much. I can assume a lot even from your short reply (and a few more parameters) too, but gonna refrain from that. Many of us know very well that you can make something different without it being overpowered.

 

Any (well, most) idiot(s) can understand that you need a product to be interesting in order to sell. Perhaps the idea is to make a really uninteresting line solely for marketing the game in Italy, but with the apparent work, effort and money being spent on developing WoT I doubt that would be cost-beneficial. It simply makes a lot more sense to make a new line somewhat interesting.

 

I don't expect you to know much about grinding tanks, anyway. T8's deemed the 'halfway-point' grind-wise; you appear to have one non-premium T8. I guess it's just a coincidence that it happens to be the most gimmicky T8 tank I can think of.
