These "Special" Tanks have been removed from the game for quite some time now. For those who are unaware, these tanks are: Foch 155, FV215b, FV215b 183. They were completely cut off from the tech tree and remained almost untouched until the black market. After having a look at WoT Console, it seems these tanks are still where they were. This forum will be about your views on this, should they return? Or have they had their time at the top of the tree?

A variation in tank abilities would make the game more interesting, otherwise it becomes

 

. Russian Obj

. Load Gold

. Autoaim

. Repeat

 

As would adding back in the general feature that machine gun ports were a weak point.

At the moment nobody has to know anything to do OK, the just have to drive the right tank.

I remember Foch 155's driving up straight into the enemy and face-hugging them through clip reloads and then slapping around tripple 850's. For the Deathstar see the debates about the FV4005. And the 215b? Great gun, but such a total collection of weak points. Things changed for a reason.

Won't happen, they're too convenient a way for WG to bleed credits from the system.

They also have the WT auf E-100 in the tech tree still. As WG don't run the PC version directly. So they can do what they want with it. Tho on the WT auf E-100 they split the tier X's vs removing it. They also split the Badger and 183. And have 3 tier X UK HT's split from the Conq. Tho no Foch B added yet, so they still have the 155. As that's their policy, they split. WG PC removes.

O can somehow see the reason behind removing instead of splitting.

Who on Earth would get a Grill15 when it can get a WTaufE100? Or a Badger when you can get a Deathstar?

No, No, Yes, Yes.
I couldn't give a damn about Foch 155 as an example. Weak sauce TD, didn't had the time to grind it, don't really give a damn about it. I happened to have FV 215b and FV 215b 183, but that's only because I actually already had them, before their removal from the tech tree happened. Not all tanks are available all the time and not all tanks are meant to be owned by everyone.
