I am sorry Kandly but most of the players on the forum will not recommend other players to buy preferential tier VIII premium tanks merely on the basis of these buffs alone (edit apart from the Hype 59 edited because Homer is correct). To the contrary I suspect most posters will recommend players not buy those tanks. Please do not get me wrong, the buffs are a good beginning, and I believe WG are heading in the correct direction. My reservation is that the prototype is not yet a production model, and it is only half complete.

 

The reason is the MM.

 

WG have said that they intend to look at the templates used by preferential MM tanks. Until that work has been completed the buffs to the premium tanks are only half the picture. Until the other half is completed WG should not attempt to sell pref mm tier VIII premium tanks, because the likely up take might well be disappointing.

 

Here is the dev quote I rely on;

Next Steps

After the release of 9.18, the new matchmaker was introduced (with the 3-5-7 format). The problem is that this system is not efficient for preferential matchmaking vehicles, after all, they aren’t as effective against their own tier and the tier higher. So, what can we do about this?

Our initial plan is to look at ways of changing the matchmaker and the control of distribution between all 6 template possibilities. The main issue is that we cannot improve the current system without a full rework of the architecture and this is planned for the future.

We are actively disassembling the current matchmaker, making important changes and then adding them to the new system. It’s a complex adjustment and our team will need time to do this without breaking anything. and we will share any details in the future, along with the current status to that point.

The matchmaker and the changes needed deserve their own articles because of the complexity of the issue. It’s a going to be complicated in comparison to the individual tank changes listed above as it will effectively require delving into the entire architecture of the matchmaker. We understand you want as much information regarding this as you can get so we will release this as soon as we can.

Please do not try and sell the buffed tanks until the "next steps" are completed.

I disagree.

 

I recommend everyone buys Type 59. :P

Liking the changing subjectively will know more when I press battle later. MM by itself needs a overhaul. I understand you cant make everyone happy but t8 grinds are brutal right now and in most tanks in some maps you are 99.99 percent on the mercy of your higher tier teammate. A large map is always a welcome addition I hope I keep that opinion when I experience it personally.

Couple of questions i ve got here.

 

When the update will be installed on servers?

Since  Eu an Ru regions have difference in dates, when updates are applied, is there any way to play on all servers, whenever new update is installed?

For making clear my question, here's the problem - Eu server's client has a lot of language localizations (e.g. Espanol, Turkce), that are not available on Ru one. So i got EU client with mod, that alows me to play on any WOT server, but still, when update is released on RU server, for a period of time i cant play there, because of client's conflict. Even though, right now i have a preloaded 1.2 update, i still cant play before it was applied on EU servers.

 

Any solve to this? Or, maybe, there is a way to get all of localizations without usage of EU client?

You can make a separate installation for each region.

 

Or, for 24 hours you can just not play on the RU server.

Tbh the FCM didn't need a ROF or speed buff, it needed better accuracy, the gun is like a blunderbuss if you move even an inch... The extra depression is nice  though.

Considering you've made changes to Sand River, will the ASSAULT mode on this map be back???

Assault mode on Sand River was one of the most fun in the entire game for many players. Even if it was not balanced. It was fun.

WG, stop ruining your game.

 

Also, when are you going to buff Object 260??? It is way behind many other tier 10 tanks and considering how hard and time consuming the missions to get it are I think it should get a buff as soon as possible. It seems there are players who sold their Object 260. It is a shame, WG. And I am not going to struggle to get another way underpowered reward tank, even if it is the only one with double tracks in the entire game.

That's nice, but I don't understand why the M4A2E4 Sherman is available for purchase in-game in other regions, but not for EU.

Because in EU and NA (where it is not available) it was the beta test reward tank and they decided not to pull the same dirty stunt they did with the RU beta testers and just rename it then put a carbon copy on sale.
