In this interview, Slava Makarov mentioned that there are no more tanks, and that the only new content is events. Ridiculous! If they are not adding more tanks, they can finally focus on shaking up and rebalancing tech trees-a whole lot of new content in itself.

They could:

-make the Tiger II tier 7 next to the Tiger, Just like with the KV and KV 1S

-put all French td's one tier lower

-put all Polish tanks tier 3-5 one tier lower

-switch around GSOR and the light below it

-move up all French racecars one tier

 

I'm sure that it is not against the rules to say that Makarov maybe is not the best suited for interviews and PR out of all the WG staff.

What would you put as the tier 10 french td then? Some kind of 8 shell clip monster with 1 second intraclip reload?:teethhappy:

Tiger II is fine at tier 8. I don't want it downtiered and ruined.

No more tanks?

It's all good, new tanks coming up 2020.

I think its fine in a +-1 matchmaking but i wouldnt say its fine against tier 10, tiger ii would how ever be broken at tier 7.

The gun handling and accuracy is good and the armor can be quite trollish time to time from distance against tier 9.

That'll be tricky given they've said that at least 2 more lines are being introduced.

If you've played the E-75 you'd know how bad the Tiger II is when it's supposed to be the "King" Tiger.

 

The E-75 plays exactly like how the actual Tiger II should be played. It got reliable armor and a powerful gun, a brawler of a tank. Not some cowardly heavy sniper which it is in the game. 

I'd be fine if they even moved up the Tiger II to t9 and gave it the same stats as the E-75, they are practically the same tank, besides the stats.

Link? This sounds like an old interview since their goals for 2020 are quite opposite - less events, new tanks and long awaited rebalance.

Copy/paste Soviet tech trees for various European nations, copy/paste US/UK/German tanks for a Commonwealth line - we already have the Ram II (Canadian) and the Sentinel (Australian) for starter premiums. They could also keep up the trend for captured tanks, put some Italians in Aussie colours, for example.

I read the same on the armoured patrol website, but it looks kind of weird. Might be things lost in translation, i don't believe that nothing new will ever come. They'd leave a good cash cow behind.

Japanese TDs, maybe 1-2 swedish branches, new french meds, italian heavies, probably german TDs (with two guns). Yeah, no tanks at all. Also, there are plenty of american prototypes - probably enough for another medium and heavy branch (similar to M54). Maybe they should focus on making tech trees instead wasting good candidates as premiums and CW rewards.

Ignoring the fact that the whole article is a mess, which I am blaming on the translation (Google translate of the original is easier to read), I think he means the WoT playerbase is no longer expanding as everyone who might be interested is already playing.  Not so much there are no more tanks but there are no more tankers.

This guy nailed it.

From the article ...

 

“The peak of the project’s development has long been completed,” said Vyacheslav Makarov.The project reached its maximum in 2015, when at the same time about 1 million people could be on the servers.

 

Vyacheslav Makarov explained a certain drop in popularity by saying that “the tanks are over, there are no more tanks.”

I think you could take that either way - no new players or the popularity is dropping due to a lack of new content. Whichever it is, I think we can agree that the interview exists, which is what was questioned by everyone demanding a source for OP's post.
