There are plenty 'sub models' of tanks in world of tanks. 

Yet every tank has its strenghts and weaknesses and therefor is different - not just in stats, but often also in design. 


For example: There are plenty T34.'s around and each is different and has another name or addition to it. 34-85M... Rudy... 34-85S... 

 

So why do we have IS-2 ... and IS-2?

IS-2B has a different gun handling AND different armor model (like +10mm frontal armor) 

 

The Cromwell B(erlin 'just' has stat changes, but not even armor changes, as much as i recall **(could be wrong on that, don't memorize each detail)

Also: Premium tanks are 100% researched and can contain way different crew layouts!

 

So please name them different, like you did with Matilda + Matilda IV!

 

It might be a minor change, but non the less important change for Gameplay ... especially for clan fights and similar events.

I agree, Was stupid how they did it with crom and not is2.

 

That being said, Is this really priority? I think we can survive with it like that for awhile, while WG is(hopefully) working on the bigger issues at hand with the game

While this change to this string can be done in a few seconds. However, this was reported right after the tank was released and they didn't care about this minor issue what can be addressed damn quickly. The problem is that its actually only an issue for the EU/NA client as the both IS-2 have different names in the RU client. That might be the reason why they don't care about two different tanks with the exact same name in the other regions.

Didn't know that, After all this is the least of my concerns so i didn't research or it or anything.

 

But at the same time, there are bigger things to complain about i think.

There are for sure, but it just shows that nobody cares (or even have people how just make an offical request and follow them up) if even a change to a string what takes 15 seconds don't make it. Ofc it will not increase revenue or profit, but is just right from the quality standpoint.

 

And yeah its just 15 seconds at this is a text string in a PO/MO file.

there is only one Russian Is-2, the other is Chinese, so there is no problem in knowing which one is the premium

At the start of the battle, you would want to know what tanks they have. There is no way to tell what one they have as they are both called 'Is-2'.

The log on icon of the Russian version sticks out over the rear, that's how I tell

Well the Soviet IS2 is the real IS2, so maybe instead they should rename the Chinese version? Maybe just switch dictator and call it "Mao Zedong 2 / MZ2" ? ;)
