Wargaming released a video on YouTube about making Modern Tanks in WoT. I haven't heared any news about this topic since then. Anyone has some news about it?

Don't know what video you are referencing, but as far as I know they always drew the line at smoothbores.

OP you might want to check the date there too. Kinda strange from a player with 15k games in 2 years.

Because a picture says more than a thousand words:


But hey, maybe in 10 years time, they'll have finally run out of russian napkin tanks to add and will start adding modern tanks and introduce the israeli techtree. :D

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

Nah that was just a spoof vid they made. Besides, It wouldn't change anything if they added them tbh it would just still be tanks vs tanks balanced to a set of tier applicable stats, nothing new at all really, other than the aesthetics. Of course, it could never be just 1 extra tier, there would have to be several evolutionary steps along the way featuring all the tanks that came between our current tier 10 tanks and modern day tanks currently in use. So you would go from a T-62A to an T-14, the gulf in class and time gap would be ridiculous and actually look ridiculous too. There would have to be a tier 11 T-72, then a tier 12 T-90 and then finally the tier 13 T-14 but more likely one more tier or two in between since 15 tiers would almost seem more relevant to the time periods we would be dealing with.


Personally, I don't think they'red be anything gained, we already have lots of tanks and like I said, it would still just play the same as any battle, tanks vs tanks, stats vs stats, unless they added some new tank mechanisms that differ from what current tanks can, since we have siege mode and auto-reloaders at higher tiers, maybe something else at an even higher tier with modern tanks but it would be hard to imagine what that would be other than anti tank missiles and new types of ammo featuring new types of pro's and cons. Another 3-5 tiers could be interesting, I don't think it needs it though and I think the most important thing to remember here is this... current our playerbase is spread across 10 tiers and at times, there can be long waiting periods to get a battle, talks of WG adding bots to fill battles due to low player numbers so I think if that was stretched across even more tiers the waiting times for a battle would start to naturally get longer and longer.

This is one of the sad fact about our world that people judge too quickly without understanding the situation.There are billions of videos about dont judge too early to move people from 0 to 1 but we are still on 0.Sigh!


This  guy just jumped on the conclusion without reading comments or doing research!
