I managed to keep the deathstar and FV215B heavy in my garage due to a decent heads up on their replacement so I was wondering if there are any whispers of others that will be being changed so I can spend a bit more time on those lines so I have a chance at sprinting to the finish before it happens

Cheers

They are likely considering T7/8-10 tanks for the most part when they want 'line consistency', not the whole line. The E3 and E4 are not that misplaced following that logic; the T8-10s all have more or less the same features. 

 

(Also consider that having some trash tank at T7-8 is good for draining free XP and/or your will to live.)

I heard talk about the E50m being replaced a while back. No idea if there was actually anything to it though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Apparently WG doesn't like the Jp E100 either, or at least it's 1050 alpha gun.

All tanks will be replaced during time, ALL tanks will be changed, buffed or nerfed. that's the main problem of this game. YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE. Because if tank is good, they nerf it, and if they buff some, it's nothing visible in real gameplay.

Simple answer: no, nothing.

 

Slightly more complicated answer: There has been some talk the IS-4 is underperforming and might be replaced/downtiered. However, that was quite some time ago. Given the recent changes to the Russian heavy tank branches, I rather doubt anything is planned for the IS-4 in the near future.

 

At any rate, WG has made it somewhat of a policy to announce changes like this well before they actually happen in order to get us to spend our free xp and money in order to get a soon-to-be 'rare' tank. Don't worry too much and simply play/grind whatever you like.

IS-4 - supposedly being replaced at some point by the ST-II but this has been in the talk for a year or so at least.

They did talk about reducing the alpha of the Jp E100 and the 183 over a year ago. Still nothing. E50M is the only WG TM tank. So why would they remove that?

 

There was a leak for the T57HT to be changed. Tho nothing from WG about it. Just "insider leaks" that are false, or don't happen over 50% of the time. So take that with a grain of salt still.

 

As direct from WG, the IS-4 was talked about for a dual barreled ST-II. That was before even the 155 change was announced. And we have not heard anything about it since either.

IS-4 is rumored to be on the chopping block in probably some patch after 1.0.

 

Jageroo maybe, i heard WG doesn't like it's 1050 alpha .... so off-c probably a weaker gun, with faster reload, more often exposure and same armor would 'balance' it out.

IS-4 seems like the strongest candidate for replacement right now, as they have talked about the ST-II for a while.

 

Jagdpanzer E100 doesn't fit the line when it comes to the gun (very high-alpha, derpy, low-RoF gun VS moderately high alpha, very accurate, very high RoF guns of the earlier tanks), so it's another tank to have a good chance to be replaced. That, or it simply could get it's gun changed, as the platform is kinda similar to the earlier tanks. Other possible tank that could be replaced is T110E4, though the entire line is still extremely inconsistent, so I wouldn't be surprised at all if they reworked the entire line at some point. They did mention that they are not happy with the Grille 15, either, but I guess they could just change it to be more like the WT auf Pz IV (so it would get massively nerfed mobility, but in return would get a fully traverseable turret, better penetration, better camo, possibly worse gun depression and possibly option for bigass gun with worse pen and accuracy). (inb4 they go a full cycle and replace the replacement with a replaced tank that got replaced by replacement that it would now replace, AKA WT E100...)

 

Not sure why is everyone pointing out the T57 Heavy. Other than it's different classification, it's quite similar to it's predecessors. If anything, it's more likely that they would change those tanks to be further more like the T57 Heavy instead of changing the T57 HT itself.

Wg has stated their opinion of this tank already many times, i dont know what they are waiting, but currently its still in the game. Its likely to drop to tier 7, because the real armor is supposed to be around 70-120mm and gun 8.8cm KwK 43 L/71. Is it going to stay on the tree? or come back as premium or gift vehicle? (like T-23E3 and FV4202)

I think we the reshaping of the German heavy line I doubt that would happen because they would need a replacement which also has a rear mounted turret
