This post is a last ditch effort of mine to get some clarification or hope restoration about my long lost favorite tier 10 TD. the good ol' 263. I remember when it was revealed that this unique tier 10 TD was gonna be replaced by another standard yolo machine with terrible DPM and stupid armor that we now know as the (B)Object 268v4. That the first thing i did was go on the forums to attempt to argue as to why you guys whould have dropped it. and i think the points i made back ended up being dead on. the 268 turned into the exact thing i hated it for being. Brainless, careless and generally too easy to play... oh and also boring and unoriginal. Now dont get me wrong i dont mind things as they are right now. but having this many samey type alpha TD as tier 10 is getting incredibly boring. and i miss the exact niche that the 263 occupied. I would love to hear if there is any possibillity of returning it. since it really didnt break the game at all. just for us people who actually ground it out and who miss it, finding the 268v4 so boring to play in comparison or just return it to purchase for bonds for those who did'nt grind it and give it back to the ones who did. i would just love to get to play my shopping trolly of death again.

 

Just as a side note since this seems selfish of me. by no means do I agree they should do this to every tank lost in the past. i am talking about the WTF E-100, FV(183). since those are super controversial. but just the tanks like the 263 and possibly the foch 155 and FV 215b just for all the people who lost their chance and deserve to get to play all of these super unique and awesome tanks that really never were anything special in their time by no means OP at all even. therefore I ask of you these two questions:

 

1. Will we ever see any of these return? if yes. which and to what extend?(availabillity)

2. Any reason why it has not been done yet(performance parameters)

 

I will be waiting for a satisfying response

Yup, I'd support having the old 263 back, as a premium maybe?

Does it hurt you to see so many words?

"I would love to hear if there is any possibillity of returning it. since it really didnt break the game at all."  Didn't even need AceDane's edit to see the question, but okay I guess :p

I really want this tank back. It was so much fun back in the day, and it still wasn't as over-powered as some tanks that are now in the game. So Wargaming please make the "old" obj. 263 come back!!!

Never understood why it was removed in the first place tbh, so a vote from me to have it returned.

I agree - bring it back - I used to enjoy playing the old 263 - even though I was not great in it, it could still deliver the odd good game - and I knew that if I got better then the results would to. I only played 1 game in randoms in the Bobject 268 v4 as it just felt wrong - press W and win. I would love to see the 263 back - I especially miss using it in CW  on certain maps/positions where the DDPM could really surprise a flanked group of tanks - while at the same time you would be vulnerable to good counterplay yourself, not just to spamming 2. Bring back tanks with weakspots and counterplay.

I think it's also a shame about the SU-122-54. That thing could pirouette like a ballerina. Only played it on test servers, didn't have the time or energy for that grind back then. I'd put those tanks back in a heart-beat.

The only tank i got mad when they replaced it. The tank was balanced with many drawbacks (fires, open top, etc.) but required some technique to play well. Instead now we got this "thing" that can't function properly because it can't be balanced properly and on top of that it caused, still does, many problems within the community!

Since it was just rebalanced and moved to tier 9 then no, it will probably not return in the same form as it used to be.

 

It was something else with the Foch 155, FV215b and 183 etc. because they were actually removed from their respective tech trees - this isn't the case with the 263 which is still in the game.

 

Just my two :coin:

That tier 9 is nowhere near what the 263 used to be. it is an entirely different vehicle so no the 263 i am talking about no longer exist in the game in any way other than the name the one i want back is the one listed as the 263B now. i think you may have misunderstood. what i want is that they bring back the tier 10 version. not that they by that have to remove the now tier 9 version or change the line back again. just that they give us back the versions they removed. That is not so unreasonable to ask for is it?

You will get it after I get my IS-4 back at tier IX with the S70 instead of that pea shooter and the armour nerfs undone.

Hope not with the amount of time we have been waiting for that buff :)
