Ok, just one thing Wargaming, please tell me that the SU-122-54 will come back at some point in the future. Please tell me that my time spent on the two predecessors is not entirely wasted. Come one man thats disheartening :(

I will miss it, it's one of the most sexy TD's in the game and I know for certain that Wargaming will bring it back in a couple of months as a "new" Russian Tier 8 premium TD as it's ideal for that.

Very similar to the new Chinese one in that respect and currently there is no readily available T8 TD for the Russians, only the ISU130 for Mods etc.

 

They will remove it just long enough so people who now own it don't get it for free.

Sadly they will remove this td. But could our votes change anything? I bet they could, if we got enough of them. My suggestion is not to remove su 122 54 from the game and then bring it back(like they did with lorr). My suggestion is to move it to tier 8. Adjust stats accordingly, make it a special tank(like fv 215b and foch 155). And leave it to players, who has it in garage. Who's with me?

Our votes me exactly zero to WG.  They've even ignored the Russian forum regarding the changes to the 263 line which they have been known to listen too.

 

I've literally just got the tier 9. Played it drunk a few games. Played it with the little gun. Twas fun from what I can remember. Sad I'll never get to play the 263 as a tier 10. Wish I'd have ground the line a lot sooner.

Was one of the tanks I happily sold when I got the 263 so I wont miss it. But what I do not understand is why they dont keep it as an extra option at tier 9 for those who want of love it.

If our opinion had any value, the whole change to Obj 263 would be indefinitely postponed.

Best looking TD yes. Most effective? Well. It's arguably the most popular TD in that line. But the line is not that popular as is before the announced change that is. Now you see them all over.

 

But we all know it will come back. But how is the question. Even the old T71 was tested as a Premium before it "came back" as a normal tank. And they might pull an 4202 trick and give us a mission for it. But I doubt it will be back in 2018. Considering how long the recent tanks have been on super test. Inc the auf Panther to name one.

Removing the SU-122-54 is just stupid... just make it an alternative T9 like the Jagdpanther II and Ferdinant. Or make it like a transition tank from the SU-101 to the SU-122-54 to the Obj. 704 or something.

SU122-54 is literally a piece of steaming crap now, why would someone want it in game??

Is just a crappy TD without a turret, zero armor and a kinda bad gun with low pen and that takes ages to aim....

THIS :great:

That's the premium soviet tier VIII TD i'd buy. SU-122-54 is not that different from the chinese tier VIII premium TD. Why would I need another prem like that?

Keep the line as it is, buff tier VII and tier VIII and just add the new, OP Obj. 268 V4 as another choice next to the 263. Done. Solved. Wargaming will have their OP tier X and we'll keep the 263.

That's a reason to give it a buff, not to remove it. Also, some people say it's a best, you may not like it, but it doesen't seem bad.

But Waffle, that'd be the best and most simple course of action which is just too much for WG to handle

You know, in Wargaming™ we don't EVER do things the simple way!

We face NEW challenges, to bring YOU - the players! SOMETHING NEW EVERY DAY!

You may complain at first, but you have no CHANCE of doing anything, because only WE know what's FUN in the game we do not even PLAY!

Well, the WZ at least has some armor and is a tier 8. If WG wanna come with that move of transforming the SU in a tier 8 premium TD then they better improve the armor to WZ levels. After all, the reason why the tank is beeing removed is 1) doesn't have a rear-mounted gun 2) doesn't have armor for the tier and according to the rest of the branch.

As you said-piece of steaming crap NOW. But if wg moves it to tier 8 with top config, improve gun handling? It would act similar to new chinese premium td(with a bit less armor). There are already paper tanks, that cannot bounce crap(like rhm). So why remove a good looking, historical vehicle? If they can tune it up.

Well, I would hope there will be a mission for it if that happens as I'd love to own this one as a tier 8 TD, have got quite fond memories of it and it was certainly a highlight in that line for me personally.

The mantlet of the SU-122-54 is insanely strong and lots of mediums autoaiming will hit that. You good traverse speed means you will keep up with them if they try to circle you.

Here is an old video of mine on this:

Great. Before, I thought I might wait to see the HD maps.... Now, I will just delete this game straight away when 9.22 release....

 

WG gipsy are removing a very historical tank for some shitty tier X.

The gipsy team at WG that did the Obj 268 V which sold well on the shitty chinese server as a premium, this shitty team made another Obj 268 IV. So WG want to use it globally with the cost of removing SU 122 54!!! WTF.... just WTF...

Is Stalin's grandson in this shitty non-productive team???

 

F.U.C.K. O.F.F. Just make Obj 268 IV a premium on chinese server again!!!

 

And leave obj 263 at tier X and Su 122 54 as it is!!!! Buff it if you need to !!!

 

AND, obj 268 IV looks so ugly with those trash bags and wood log on it!!! Just look old ugly Russian stinky ladies' decorations....

No it's not suitable for the 268 line at all; it has a turret and even inscription "103" on it's turret sides and in general a few unusual traits so it's definitely intended to be a premium. When though, that is a better question, because it is been on supertest for quite a long time already so it might be possible that it's scrapped (maybe it was too good as it has been nerfed many times, also it's basically a Russian skorp G that is THICC so maybe that's another reason).

 

There is also the KV-4 KTTS but it's most likely scrapped altogether
