Some very interesting stuff, unavailable-for-purchase premiums being available for Bonds amongst a few.

So the Warhammer KV-2 was supposed to be just a skin for the regular KV-2 like the French one but because they didn't have skins for a 2nd turret and a couple of guns ready they did it as a one-off tank.  They really couldn't delay it for a day or two?

 

It would have saved a huge poopstorm.

 

I suspect they would have sold a lot less of them though.

(Not particularly fond of the translated Q&As, worth considering how accurate some of these are. I trust Harkonnen, but I don't necessarily trust WoT Express.)

 

Anyway: Buying HESH rounds with bonds? Really? Man, as I breathe I can taste the salt in the air already - and I'm not close to the shoreline! I might have a Dinger nearby, however. If you can't buy bonds, what will the Dingers do? This will destroy the Dinger spirit! Bond ammunition will be the end of the Dingers!

 

Nice to see a mention of the KV-5 changes being preliminary. Just seems so darn official when they put stuff on the front page - and combine it with a total reversal on the PMM tank rebalance logic. It went from "PMM must be removed to balance the tanks properly" to "we must rebalance the tanks because PMM must be removed". Same end goal, sure, but it just doesn't add up.

1 thing i dont understand:
  • KV-5 will receive an exclusive list of trade-in vehicles that will include some that are rarely sold.

It will be only the KV-5 have this beneficial?

Yes, people who own KV-5 will have a "special" list of trade in vehicles. Usually when you trade in your premium you can only get premium tanks from tech tree.

Bonds for a HESH round that behaves like a HESH round should would be something I'd happily pay for

 

"oh hello v4/430u/705a/etc, all silly angles and Stalinium eh? Lemme double tap 3 for speshulHESH and auto-overmatch that UFP and knock out every module you have"

 

The salt would be magnificent 

 

Other changes worry me though - game is rapidly morphing into Fortnite/PUBG clone...

Probably, although I can't say if the special list is going to be the same.

Oh, on a side-note...: Does anyone know what happened to the ability to leave comments on Harkonnen's TheDailyBounce site? For several weeks now there are no comments on any article, when I tried logging in to comment, something went wrong, the login process seems to be looping in a weird way...

 

Edit: Seems to have been fixed right after I posted this comment... :hiding:

So, ST-I may get a new mechanics... let's hope well... with the "fit the line" policy this may became a disaster...

 

Also removing a real tank (IS-4) for a fantasy one, even if it had blueprints, it's not a great move IMO. 

 

Let's hope everything go well!

They would. As I'm sure more then half bought it for the premium KV-2. Not the fact it was a Warhammer tank. As I've not seen many G1 B's with the skin on. If that was a premium too, I suspect more would have bought that as well. As it was fairly pricey for a skin a minority of players will see. As the setting is off by default. So if the rest later are skins only. I won't be getting them.

I'm sure they will. If not I suspect there would be a rage storm again. As they followed the new "protocol" when they removed tier X's too. As they all became a special vehicle.

If they return with the BR mode later as they said. It will keep far away from it. I'm sick of it as is that everyone have to follow the trend. Even COD BO4 said they would set new trends and be innovative and not do the same mistake again... then making fun off the wallrunning they did copy from the original COD creators with Titanfall....only to show 60 seconds later that they had copied every game there is, inc PUBG. Because why not. I'm willing to bet that BF5 will have a BR mode too.

-KV-5 will receive an exclusive list of trade-in vehicles that will include some that are rarely sold.

-Players will be able to buy a lot of things with them, from camouflages, some specific HESH rounds, to various Premium vehicles that were withdrew from sale, etc.

 

What I read:

 

-Type 59

I wonder.  Rarely offered for sale or rarely sold, in that they're so crap no one's daft enough to buy one?

Yes they will let you swap a tank they just went to great lengths to remove from preferential mm for another one with preferential mm.

I assume it's because the KV-5 is a "rare" vehicle that they will be able to trade it for other "rare" vehicles that they may have preferred to purchase, as a sort of compensation for not liking their rebalanced "rare" vehicle.

 

Since the IS-6 and StupidPershing (aamongst other) are available in the shop they will only be able to trade for other tech tree premiums.
