Some weeks ago, WG announced plan for changing premium tanks with pref MM.

The first was KV5.

 

Fellow players, do you have any news, any update?

 

ps.: a feedback from WG staff would be welcome too.

The thread about it in announcements has reached page 210 and nothing new from WG so far - which in itself is news ;)

They got scared and for a reason. Now they just try to wait it out.

Funny.

 

I agree that they got 'scared'. Just goes to show how badly certain people understand their own game - and maybe that the effect PMM has on the game all of a sudden wasn't that big. :D

It's not just the pref MM thing, WG has gone dead silent on all development related things recently, other than posting supertest "leaks" of the polish techtree. Like no idea what changes the next patch is supposed to bring other than polish content. Oh yeah, the crappy shop redesign noone asked for or expected as it was announced out of nowhere.

 

Well, Gamescom is coming up soon, probably they'll make some announcements there on the big stage.

The fact that WG haven’t responded, isn’t that news in the same category as the Pope wears silly hats?

I saw an interview where they stated that they would do something else because of the bad feedback they got. So I guess that they are planning something else:P

I did remember it as an interview but I could only find a forum post about it though I don't have the time to find the specific forum post, but I found a picture of it from armored patrol: https://thearmoredpa.../05/cabbage.jpg (I guess that somebody else can find the post)

Well, still blaming PMM tanks for the screwed up MM. Not expecting anything good from WG until they stop lying like that.

Well, only armoured tanks care if they are shot with prem. Doesn't matter against paper tanks.

And how im suppose to shoot a tier 8 premium in my tier 6 stock tank that has a tier 5 gun.

Think removing the premium shell will ruin the game more.

they have to rework all armor and gun values and that aint gonna happen

not really because tanks without armor must use this p2w ammo and others just get it.

so...armored tanks lose their main feature, armor, and others must PAY to fight them....that means ALL tanks are affected in a way or another

How? With WEAKPOINTS

yes, they must rework some tanks too...but anything else is all about ammo. Guns have nothing to do with this...only ammunition must be buffed on stock guns and reworked for all.

IMO the best thing they can do about pref mm tanks is to keep their pref mm status (because people bought them for this reason, and pref mm tanks are not to be blamed for the stupid mm). They should only give to every preff mm tank from tier 8 a relevant gun. As someone else said they should change the prem ammo as standard ammo for most of them (except for the chinese 250 mm heat ones).

 

i.e: give to is-6 as standard round 217 mm APCR and new 250 mm HEAT as prem ammo. KV-5 - 219 mm APCR and 250 HEAT as prem, etc.

 

For chinese tanks either buff the standard round around 217 - 220 mm or give to them the 110 gun (100 mm 62-100T, but that would be a nerf imo)

Something tells me they have quietly swept it under the rug for now. As it was something they talked about at every Q&A etc before. But not a word about it since the rage storm about the KV-5 change. Not even at tank fest did they mention anything about it at their Q&A. As the only reaction they did post was the refund issue. After that... nothing. 

 

Tho KV-5 as WG said was to be a test to see how it would work out. And the results from it would decide the faith of other premiums. WG might have seen it as a failure even before they got to it.

 I would not be surprised if the EU staff roaming this forum know as little as we do. It's not the first time we have seen communications issues even between offices on stuff like this after a major change in plans.

Considering the T26E4's gold pen, or even the WZ-111. 250 is not even much to ask. Tho I'm not to keen on having HEAT as gold ammo on everything tbh. T26E4 has 192 AP pen. That's the same or more as the +2 MM US mediums. WG's reason to buff it from it's old pen. It fights targets on the HT line more so then the med line. And needs the pen for it. And yet... IS-6 still sat on 175, while the T26E4 went from 170 to 192.

I'm wondering as well.

I'm actually looking foward to seeing some prems buffed.

I only think there will be a major shitstorm if WG try to remove pref MM from the Type 59 and E-25. Which is understandable.
