He does acknowledge that some of the premium tanks were unbalanced, but that it was something Wargaming fixed.

"Right now, especially with influencers and YouTube guys, who really dig into one game, I’m not aware of any big outcry. There were a couple of episodes, we listened, I met with YouTubers myself, we discussed, we fixed, and now we’re back to really, really fair play.”

He might have meant that in WGs opinion the newest premium tanks they released are no longer unbalanced. Which is true I guess looking at the latest prems but what difference does it make if the damage has already been done, and they keep selling these unbalanced tanks anyway! Only the Defender hasn't been on sale but they will definitely sell it again since EU servers were the only ones who haven't had it.

You can be pretty damn sure the Christmas loot boxes will have Obj252u / Defender in them this year.

 

After Type 59 last year, WG won't be able to resist making huge bank again.

"I’m not aware of any big outcry."  The clearest indicator in bold print that WG doesn't give a damn about player opinions, nor do they read the forums.

The difference is that the 252u is broken now, and if I'm honest the Type 59 is not. It used to be but nowadays it's kinda meh.

I think this, I think he means that they have shifted premium tank policy.

 

Off the top of my head, since the Skorpion, Defender, Patriot, Liberte period of 16/17, the more recent prems are ELC EVEN 90, Somua SM, Strv S1, Primo Victoria, Guard, T92, Mauerbrecker.

 

They are nowhere near the power level of those other tanks and certainly not OP, many of them are in fact underpowered. 

 

I also presume they are just hoping the meta balances the other tanks out, I mean really that is already seen with the Skorpion and Patriot for example. 

 

Other issue is the RU server seems to think the Defender is fine.

Thanks for the laugh...

I agree with Junglist and Simeon. WG have gone back to making certain that premium tanks are not as good as the tech tree equivalent. This has meant that the new light tanks in particular are very under powered as their tech tree equivalents got the nerf bat heavily when the tier X lights came out. Newer premium tank list which are all close or inferior to the tech tree equivalent;

Stg/guard - object 416

Stv1

Maubrecher

AMX Even 90

T92

Somua SM

Primo Victoria (ok it's very close to the Centurion MK1, but that's not a very strong tier VIII)

 

The lesson WG learnt was the Defender/Object 252U and they have not repeated that mistake.

That does seem to be true, despite the numbers suggesting otherwise:

"some people say it's OP/stronk, some say it's okay, but no one whines about it being broken"

 

http://forum.worldof...2#entry14926832

 

 

Also, there's been speculation that RU spams premium ammo like no other; i.e. making the Defender quite a bit less problematic to deal with:

" (...) p.s goldspam on RU is REAL......EU is nothing compared to Tier 8-10 on RU"

Yes. So the hype will build even more, and WG will make even more money than with Type 59.
