I just thought that instead of adding a lot of tank prototypes (some of them have never worked irl or was ineffective), you could rather add real modern tanks. What I want to say: after a player research his first tier 10 tank, then he will be able to open "advanced research", where could be modern tanks of his researched nation (after reaching Is-7, only russian modern tanks will be possible to buy). It will open in a different window, so it will not mess with current research tree. Modern tanks can have tiers like 11, 12, 13 and so on, or X-1, X-2, or even start from the beggining - 1, 2, 3, because...

 

...battle with these tanks should not mess with current tanks, so new tier 11 tanks will fight against other tier 11, or 12 (depends on the tank), but not with current tanks (tier 10 or 9), like for the tier 1 tanks. Also I think there can be a "new" way of research (advanced research) for every tank, for example "M1 Abrams" can be upgraded to the M1A1 and M1A2. Same for the other tanks, if they have alternatives.

 

So, what do you think about that? I like modern tanks and if I could play with them in WoT, it would be great. Share your opinions.

Better and easier to put them a seperate game.

Lets see, Chieftain, Challenger, Challenger 2, & various versions of the CVRT ( Scorpion/Scimitar) not much

for the British tech tree after tier 10

Britain can get quite a few vehicles in after Tier 10, not just the Chieftain, Challenger and Challenger 2 since you also have the Olifant and Vickers MBT.

No, thanks. You are basically asking for an entirely new game.

How about no.

I would've preferred if WoT had just tanks from 1915 to the end of 1945.

Because quite frankly, post-war tanks are boring to me.

The OP wrote "I just thought that instead of adding a lot of tank prototypes (some of them have never worked irl or was ineffective), you could rather add real modern tanks." I take

this to mean vehicles that entered service. As the game is at present based on tracked vehicles, & doesn't include armoured personnel carriers, so excludes the AFV432 & Warrior

types. We could add the Abbot & AS90 SPG's as well, but arty is often unpopular.

But we all know that the tech trees won't ultimately be balanced without prototypes.
