February overview for US server showed some interesting thing. Does it mean we should expect removal of FCM from tech tree and buff like it was with 112?

That link is for the US server. EU has not heard such things.

Take a look at the French tech tree on the test server... it might reveal something.

They have expressed a want to fix pmm tanks since they are mostly subpar to bad. They have also removed some tanks from the trees before due to them having pmm so it seems probable. I'm just hoping they will buff it massively so I can wreck games with it :-D

Did you ever notice at least one difference between us, ru and eu server in terms of tech tree? Not saying its 100%, but we should be aware that it might happen

If it gets removed, nothing of value will be lost any way.

 

This poor thing got completely killed off by powercreep to the point that having one in your team is actively harming your chances to win.

FCM50t hasn't been worth it for years now unfortunately so nothing of value is lost.

Interesting thought.. They did not buff the Tog, t14 etc when they were removed a few patches ago but then again they were not really in need of it.

 

I cannot remember if the 112 was buffed because of forum outcries or just because the 113 ( its bigger brother) got a buff too, maybe a combination of both.

 

Either way it might get buffed and if it does they will remove it, then buff it, then stick it on special sale as all others before....

Well the thing is that before WG had a staff change... or 3. Removal of premiums with pref MM was a thing they wanted to do. All of them. Most mid tier tanks like the T14, Ram II, SU-85i, Pz IV S, Panther M10, Tog II & the Jagdtiger 88 along with other problem tanks like the Pak 40, Sexton I & the 105 leFH was removed. Tho the M10 was added back after it got buffed. But it was not the reasons for it's removal, unlike the 112. But after the 88, they did stop, as they had a staff change. 50t was next on the list to be removed iirc, along with the Matilda IV to name one. But it never did happen.

 

Since then there has been yet another staff change or two. And now they have said they see pref MM tanks as an issue and wanting to buff the IS-6 to give it +2 MM etc. So I would not be surprised if they wanted to go back to the old plan and start removing them again. Starting with that one.

FCM used to be the go to tank for rerollers/2nd accounts along with the IS-6.

Now it's useless so who cares...

I assume you mean that the FCM isn't on the 9.22 test server tree, and that the 'last chance' is getting it before patch day?

 

Seems a bit fishy to 'announce' that it's the last chance if they aren't planning changes to it. I smell a 'leak' soon.

with 112 it was like
1. removal of 112 from tech tree
2. huge buff to armor
3. sold only on website
4. added back to tech tree

I assume something simmilar can happen to FCM

As above the FCM 50t used to be the go to tank for re-rollers and stat padders. The FCM 50t used to be the poor man's Type 59.

But those days are long gone, and the power creep has not been kind to the majesty that once was the FCM 50t.

 

Will WG buff it?

 

I would be surprised if they did, as they have taken so very long trying to sort out what they do with the IS6/KV5. WG are pretty keen to sort out the IS6/KV5 as the RU server is by far their largest market and while the IS6/KV5 languish not being sold due to power creep WG are missing out on a good stream of income. That being said they re-sold the buffed M10/Warcrimes Panther, and the Lowe after it's buff probably also sells well now. So who knows what the future holds for the FCM 50t. I for one would welcome some buffs for the FCM 50t. I kept mine for nostalgia.

I feel conned by this tank.

 

My advice to all ... do not buy any Pref MM tanks.

Just buff all my Preferred MM tanks and give them normal MM

 

I look forward to owning an improved FCM50t, Jagtiger 88, IS6, Superpershing, PZIV S and of course Type 59.

as well as a few lower tier tanks

 

That's the way to get rid of PMM tanks

It will be removed from tech tree and shop so that it won't be discounted ever again but it will still be available for "collectors" at full price.

We all know that "last chance" means "will repeatedly appear in special bundles in the premium shop".
