Hello everyone,

(specificly WG, as they can actually do something about it XD) When the FL mode was added for a first round of "live" testing it came with the T-44 and T32 FL editions, this allowed even those without tier VIII (which includes me atm) to play the mode. Now, about a month later the FL mode has been removed/deactivated, probably so it can be improved with the feed back gained during the last month, yet the two tanks remain. You can't take them into random battles, you can't use them in the FL mode (as it's not here atm) so they don't really serve a purpose. However, any equipment placed on them is stuck there which is kinda annoying. Normally this wouldn't be such an issue as one could just sell the tank (like when WG gives you a prem for trial) and get the money back, but since you can't actually sell the tanks this comes down to about 2.5M credits being locked. I don't know wether this is planned (perhaps so people can use the tanks in a different round of FL) or an oversight, or even going to be fixed in the next patch. But either way, it would be nice to get the option to remove the tanks from the garage, either trough:

 

-Removing the tank from the garage, moving the ammo, consumables and equipment to the depot and the crew to the barracks.

-Adding an option to sell the tank, 1 or 0 credits refund and the standard sell a tank procedure.

 

Either way it would be nice to get either my money or the equipment back as it's currently being pointless on tanks I literally can't play.

With regards,

Thuis001

Likewise.

 

I can move the crew and consumables myself, but are WG delaying the removal in the hopes that we pay 10 gold per equipment while getting tired of waiting?

Atleast you are not a whining  "I WANT MY 2 GARAGE SLOTS " Back that you stole from me.

you can move the crews Barracks your self

As for the tanks are they such a issue unless you are a window licker that are sitting and looking at the garrage whole day.

I was thinking the same. I won't pay 30 gold though, so they can be in my garage forever :teethhappy:

Last time we had 'event tanks' in the garage was Halloween, and they hung around after the event until the next patch, which if WG are to be believed will be next week.

For me it indeed is a problem, because I though T32 is usually a nice tank and I haven't played it for years, because I have the E5. this FL thing is trash and I put equipment on it, which I want back and use on tanks I recently bought.

This is not the first time it takes ages before tanks are removed. Same happened with the Leviathan special.

Is it wise to move the crews back in to the barracks, along with any equipment mounted, or will that be done automatically ?

Maybe sell any ammo loaded ?

out of curiosity though, can we snag the crews for ourselves?

lets just say that a extra med crew and a HT crew could be very useful to me

Should be done automatically. Selling ammo was a thing before but I think they changed that. Doesn't hurt to try though.

It happens every time, why do you think this will be any different?

 

Event tanks always hang around until patch day.

We're keeping the crews, it's on the detailed regulations page.

The Rampage rental tanks gave you a new ammo load each time you completed the qualifying missions so you could sell that repeatedly. You can't do that with these ones and you can't use the ammo in any other tank, even the regular versions of the same tanks, because it's got a special FL suffix on each shell. I sold it when I first got the tanks and discovered I couldn't use it in my regular T-44.

 

What confuses me is why so many of us are still waiting when some have already had them removed (link)? :confused:

I already have the standard versions so didnt use them so no equipment on them

I moved the crews out as for the tanks they can stay go or whatever.

If FL comes back maybe we will get the same tanks or some other fl tanks.

 

It could be fun to be able to earn permanent ownership of the fl tanks by achievements in FL games.

They could become reward tanks able to be used in all games

Ah yes, it was the Rampage thingy. I believe one could also save some credits by unchecking the auto repair. WG killed the refined hustle game. :(

You can put the crew anywhere you like, if they are trained for the FL tanks then at some point they will be retrained to something else for free, if you retrain them yourself they won't be touched since all they do is the equivalent of a find/replace in and Excel document.
