2 years is a long time. Hardly believe they'll ever come but I suspect it's only to put in iconic Soviet vehicles (T-72).

 

In my opinion, though I wanted them in the past, I say it isn't worth it. Here's why:

 

  • Poor game balance

Existing vehicles have plenty of problems already and there seems to be no interest in solving them.

 

  • Poor map design

Goes without saying if you're not an HT fanboy.

 

  • It's just another grindfest

And to get to Tier X, it's already complicated. BPs will only make it faster to rush tiers.

 

It would make sense for vehicles too strong since they could be fighting against others with adequate armament (Type 5, etc). But this is just a waste of development time. There are already plenty of vehicles that could be introduced in the near future, which are historical, contemporary with WoT's line set and even premiums.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a purist.

  • Swimming Tanks
  • ATGMs
  • Researchable equipment
  • Vehicle-specific equipment
  • Armour kits
  • Combat Reserves
  • HP packs
  • Smoke grenades/IR clouds/Jammers

 

None of that would bother me, quite the opposite. I have no problems mixing current WoT with WoT Excal (minus the aircraft and few other unneeded aspects) but if we do, how much XP will it take for Tier XII? XV? XX? 500K XP? It's not gonna work.

 

The current model is already bad. Rather than taking too long (50K XP for an engine that won't carry over - TVP VTU, Obj. 430) to unlock modules, we'd be constantly unlocking new stuff like new sights that tell us how far we're aiming, panoramic sights for indirect fire (just an example...), Repair Parties for HTs (like WoWs) and the stock vehicle also offering viable options (Sherman Jumbo turrets) rather than "I have to go top config to be competitive). Then again, free XP sinks, right WG?

 

 

Overall, this game has a lot of potential that is going to waste. Two years is a long time, but certainly nowhere near enough for WG to address the issues that would make breaking the Tier X barrier viable.

In that article it says 4 months to handle the changes they mentioned for SPGs. I can only imagine the time it would take for a full Class-wide rebalance...

 

 

Anyway, your thoughts?

No thanks, I don't want modern tanks in this game.

Especially not one that'd destroy game balance with composite armour.

I hope that they do not put tiers XI and XII into World of Tanks.

 

I think that their earlier idea of World of AFV's was better. Whole new trees of post war vehicles leading up to modern tanks. Modern tanks would be a nightmare on small maps. A separate new game would be a much better idea in my view.

"The situation with tier XI and XII tanks should be cleared in the next 2 years"

 

This could mean absolutely anything from we adding 2 new tiers or leaving as it is. Could also mean we bringing out a new game WoT 2.0.

IMO this was more worrying from that Q&A - 'The chance of getting an unjust ban is about 2-3% per 10 thousand players'

 

Tha its thousands of players out of the active player base

Well at least then they can shove some tanks down and rebalance things not that it would make more of a difference.

 

T64 Hunter tier 12 vs E100 r.i.p ladz.

 

at least then they have the excuse of adding in the object 267.

Modern tanks have reactive armor and very very powerful shells. Adding them to the game is just stupid. TX tanks won't stand a chance against these tanks and If they are gonna have separate MM then why not create a whole new game for modern tanks? Just like WVs don't have a place in this game, modern tanks don't either.

You can probably take it as the statement of '5% of all shots are gold'.

I would like modern tanks, that was the thing that drove me to play Armored Warfare. That game went to hell, as everyone knows, so I’d welcome another option.

 

I see not much sense in having T-72s in the same game as Tigers, but I would jump ship this instant WG released a game with Cold War era and later tanks and AFVs. And I would pour money down its throat. (Although, if there was a way to migrate even a bit of the progress and time and money invested in WoT, I would not mind.)

well if they do mix the tiers i guess we'd prolly expect some massive buffs/nerfs which will break down the game even more

New game implies having to rebuy premium tanks and grind again crews.

 

They should just add Tier XI++ tanks in WOT, but enforce a +-0 MM rule so they will ONLY play in the same pool and not face WW2 era tanks (including the current tier IX and X) . An alternative could just as other already sugested a new game mode featuring tier XI++ only.

 

In any case this is a positive aspect in my opinion and could work if implemented properly.

I could live with that. Have the same client, but a different sandbox.

While i think 2 years is a very long time to decide on adding such tanks, i'd love to see the T-62M and T-64 in the game. Shooting crude ATGMs and making smoke screens to escape! :)

 

Playing those of course with the current tanks or in the current maps is impossible though.

Even though this seems like an upcoming Aprils fools joke like the Landkreuzer P1000 back then, I'd be fine with it as long as Tier XI+ would be set into a different environment where they have no encounter with Tier X and below.

current tanks already have railguns and attached rocket launchers,so why is this needed?
