The Chieftain Mk.VI is in the game files.

The Chieftain Mk.VI is available in the console version of WoT.

 

The Chieftain Mk.VI can be purchased on the Chinese servers run by WG's China partner Kongzong.

 

When will the second UK heavy line ending with the Chieftain appear in PC World of Tanks?

+1 million upvotes!

 

Should make a poll " Do you want the Chieftain line to be added to the UK tech tree - Yes / No" and post a link in all the other language forums. Someone brave enough to do the same on the RU server? :B

Chieftain is probably dead and buried like it's line and Japanese TDs. But hey, who knows, WG just finally decided to implement British LTs after how many years, so maybe Chieftain still has a chance to appear...

Why would you want a standard tank when the cw reward is far better?

If it will be a tech-tree tank WG will make sure it sucks.

If it will be a reward tank WG will make it OK.

 

More likely:

WG will probably choose some kind of elaborate and long-winded marathon type event or other money printing scheme for this tank.  They know it would be a popular and in demand tank and will try to capitalise accordingly...

Easiest option would be to put it in the bond shop for like 50k bonds :coin:

Why don't we have the Chieftain,which is the best heavy tank ever made,and it fits on the period covered by WOT,in a tanks game.Its like not having Messi or Ronaldo in Fifa.

Keep in mind that WG doesn't run console or the Chinese server the same way as normal WOT. They do their own thing. And can take anything from the dev server and just add it. It's why we got the WZ-111 in the first place. WG made it, forgot about it. China found it, released it with no testing. WG saw the numbers and stats and balanced it with that vs testing on their own. Console found the 2nd Chieftain test and slapped it on their tech tree, not testing or balance. It broke tier X instantly. They have balanced it about 20 times now. And since then... WG did start up testing again based on console. As it's not that long ago the "chieftain_test" accounts was spotted. 

 

Then again... console still has the WT auf E100. And the old Komarin. Just saying.

 

So with that in mind... Who knows. I doubt it will appear in 2019. As the global rebalance focus will come now after 1.5. And I suspect that will last until Xmas if not past it like the fist one did.

Aparentley they tried testing it in supertest but the Leyland Engine kept on breaking down or catching fire before the 30 second countdown was over ;-)
12:03 Added after 7 minutes
Seriously though I have heard it said that  if they released it as it is it would be too OP - and they aparentley dont know how to re-balance it without nerfing it too hard. It's an iconic tank so if it was an unplayable pos then there would be uproar - however if they released it as is then perhaps they think there will be uproar - I hope they find a way. In the meantime I'd be interested if someone from WG could explain why the console devs have found a way to release it when they can't - does console just not care about balance - or are there other factors we are not aware of? It would be good to understand why they can have it but we can't

I dont see how WG cant balance it, console devs have managed to get the Chieftain to a point where it feels fairly balanced and console WoT isnt that much different to PC. Ive been playing console for a while now and put in over 200 battles with the Chieftain so far after unlocking it a month or so ago.

Chieftain has serious firepower, the ROF is terrifying when in the hands of someone who knows how to maximise that damage output and potential, the ammo choices are limited to APCR and HESH which is situational at best. The armour is as you'd expect, incredibly strong in hull down positions but as per usual its a british tank where the cupolas are generally easy to hit if you don't suck at aiming for weakpoints. Mobility isnt too bad, enough to get you around, faster than an E5 but a lot slower than a 277 or T10 (ignore the tier difference) so you cant react to flankers so easily...

Console Chieftain should be used as a base plate for PC WG to work from, but i can guarantee there will be very minute changes to balance it for PC...

To be honest i think this is purely a marketing issue rather than balance, which leads me to believe that WG will either try to add it as a personal missions reward vehicle and probably the hardest to achieve, or they will be catastrophically stupid and make it a CW reward vehicle and ignoring the fact it would severely anger A LOT of their players

They could sell it as a premium T10, and then we both know which tank would be superior.

It kinda is. They don't follow everything PC does in terms of balance changes. They also have way more tanks we don't have. But we still have some tier X's they don't have. Maps are different. They have some of the old removed maps from PC still, and older versions of maps we have. They have made a few of their own etc. And again, they have the WT auf E100 still. And the Maus never got the massive buffs it got here to name a few. So their balanced version might not work too well here in our meta etc. But as a staring point for WG to work on it faster vs what they had the last time? That is def better.
