Is there any chance you will release WoT Classic where you will not include all these new gimmick tanks and lets us just play game we loved. Pretty soon it will just be Ebr and 2 barrel bsmobiles and probably ufo tanks you will introduce next. 

 

I really loved to play scouts even when they went up to tier 8 and were a bit underpowered but they had a role. Also arty before the stun crap was fun even if it was a bit unfair. Think about it, you could still do your new monkey business for people that enjoy it but retain some older players who liked a different game

Define "classic" for you? As last year they had a 0.7.0 classic server, with 10 SPG pr team and +4 MM. So my Sherman faced IS-3's with no pyhsic engine so you can't cliff jump. That kind of classic? Or a bit less extreme?

 

But the video WG put out at the end of last year did hit of a new classic server. What version it will be based on remains to be seen. As 0.7.0 did still have the Luchs as a tier 3. So I did not get my +4 MM fun with that one this time.

Seems to me it is hard to pinpoint what without greater discussion because as you say some versions had 7 arties, some had 7 e25s, some 7 wte100 but im sure any of those would be better than this crap now. Also they removed some of the lovely maps in favor of same old same old we have today. I dont know how much of this is only rosy glasses of past times, but game really went to toillet fast

That was a long time ago though, When I quit it had 3 max and that was about 5 years ago. When I left they were working on the Chinese lines and the Swedes were coming up I think.
 That said, the game was way more enjoyable back then. There has been a big powercreep in the game, way too many tanks which makes a good balance nearly impossible and everybody and their mom is shooting gold rounds now. At least back then it was a smaller percentage and even then a few rounds.

E75 was my fav, my baby, perfect tankytank. Now, I can angle all I want, I get penned by lowtiers with their turboguns, hit and run, no need to aim, its a joke.


I turned to the arty's now, just playing casual arty, cant do much dmg in them anymore but its a lot less frustrating.

Ah yes, World of Tanks Classic, the best way to remember how horrible the game actually was back in the day.

No company in their right mind would re release an old version of their game. Please come back to the real world, it's not healthy for you back there in the dark ages.

Ever heard of World of Warcraft?  Pretty sure it happened in the real world and I didn't just dream it.

Thing is... that vanilla versions and remakes gets more hype then most new releases.

WOW classic is their day one version with the currently fined tuned engine, as it was widely loved. And last year's WOT classic was more or less their day one version without the currently fined tuned engine. And... tbh 0.7.0 was a fun trip down how the game used to look. It was far from... fun for anything more than a week tbh for most, nor widely loved. So if WG should keep a classic server going indefinitely. The argument of what version I suspect would heat up fast. As then it would not be a classic server as such. Just a "this was my favorite era" version more so than anything... classic.

Sadly, i missed the classic Server last year, i hope WG brings it back this year. 

 

Were all tanks unlocked last year, or did you had to grind them? Or did they Mirror your Standard account (like WG allowed twice with WoWS), where you get all the stuff/ premium on the PTS?
