I heard the Defender will not be sold on the EU server. How is that fair ? You have top players who straight away said it was op and bought it . I didn't like a fool because I had just bought the IS6. So now you have a scenario where top players have a tank that newbies don't so surely that means they have even more of an advantage. You have to let people  buy it or power creep other tanks OR nerf the defender or give people their money back and take it out of the game, BUT saying people will complain if it's sold. Obvious if YOU have a OP tank you don't want others to have an equal playing field as then it's not over powered anymore. Must admit I played this game for many years but at what level I play and if I pay for an account is in question. The only thing that keeps me here now is my friends and even they are leaving due to been disillusioned.

The decision to not sell the Defender in EU was based on player feedback. If you think we should revert this decision you would have to convince other players that it's a good idea, create a movement and shift the player perception of this particular vehicle.

​Have a Vote on it.  That would be fair.

So other regions were satisfied with the performance of the tank and didn't consider it overpowered?

Players in different regions perceive things differently. Strength and performance of the vehicle is not such an issue.

I wonder if the decision to sell Mutant or Pz 2 J again and again were also based on player feedback.

 

But WG will put Defender and Obj252u anyway in this year's Christmas loot boxes, you just have to wait a bit.

It's not an issue? You've killed the T8 competitive meta with the Defender and basically if you haven't spend 40€ on a premium tier 8 tank, you have nothing to do in CW/skirmishes. Of course, money can't buy skill, but huge percentage of the playerbase is unskilled so they whine about it being OP.  Personally, I don't care and I'm not giving my money to companies with their customer service like WG, but either everybody gets a chance to buy it, or nobody does.

If i create a movement that Wargaming gives me all the premium tanks in game for FREE, how many people would I need in my "movement" for you to do this?

​The Staff needs to make an Announcement so that All of the EU Players can be made aware to Vote, not just a small segment of the Community.

A part from the fact that it grossly over performs across the board, but hey who cares about statistics like that right?

 

Anyway, NA is a dying server so they a grabbing all the money they can get and RU cluster has "adapted" better (they shoot more gold and thus the armour is less of an issue).

 

Good call to not put it back in the shop on the EU server, skirmishes etc. are already complete ebola because of this tank, no need to create the plague as well.

 

Angelo51: Instead of routing the the OP flavour of the month tank to be sold again, try to become a better player on your own. It's more rewarding in the long run, trust me.

They sold the Mutant. Twice.

They sold the Type 59 again ( Xmas special ).

 

You do realise they will sell the Defender again at one point. Right? Just wait for enough powercreep to hit it. :)

Average daily population of the EU server is what 300k? 100 votes is nothing compared to that - you will be better convincing WG to make an ingame poll....

I would vote if I would find the poll, in what section did you hide it? if you want a representative poll, post it in the most visited section.
