Can someone from WG please shed some light on this. I asked this question in "The New Alpha in Town: Meet the Object 430U" topic, but didn't get an answer. Here is the link with announcement:

 

https://worldoftanks.eu/en/news/general-news/update-922-obj430u/

 

And here is the quote regarding the replacement:

 

View PostFrom the article "The New Alpha in Town: Meet the Object 430U":

So, if you’re planning to explore the top vehicle from the A-44 line, it might make sense to keep the XP points amassed on the Object 430 II until we introduce it to the tech tree. On the other hand, getting the 430 before 9.22’s release can save you time on your way to the 430U.

 

I hope it's just a poor wording, because from this it looks like you plan to take away tier X tank from players that bought it without giving them the new tier X tank in that line when it becomes available in the game, and just give them tier IX tank instead.

 

Tier X Obj 430 costs 6.100.000 credits, while tier IX Obj 430 II costs 3.450.000 credits (tier IX Obj 430 will probably have similar price because that's also the price of T-54).

You also need a lot more XP to research tier X tank than you need to research tier IX tank. To get Obj 430 from Obj 430 II (with all the modules) you need 436.700 XP. To get Obj 430 II from Obj 416 (with all the modules) you need 251.700 XP.

 

So it makes no sense that people who own Obj 430 before the next patch don't get the new tier X replacement when it's added to the game, because they invested all those XP points and credits in tier X tank.

On the test server you get the 430U and the 430 as tier 9 IIRC.

you get the replacement tank, the Obj430U.

I don't see why they would/should hand out the new, unknown tier 10 following the Obj430II for free...

 My bad, I somehow missed that.
