Anybody else have a game instance called "New Balance Test" automatically installed? Seems like the ammo changes are getting their own client (most likely because of the 1.8 CT currently on)

 

Clicking the link on WGC leads to a 404.

Ammo balance test was not done on CT last either iirc. So they might run a new one again. Could be the HESH tests they wanted to do after they did HE. Unless they already did those.

They rebalance tech trees, it is a post about it on Armored Patrol. They gonna remove 92 tanks from the tech tree. They also added Cavalier at tier 5 before Cromwell. Now the british lights are constant from tier 1 to 10 with Crusader being transformed in light tank again.

 

I need to buy fast T-62A, AMX 30 Proto, AMX 30B, Hetzer, Jpanther 2, KV-13 etc.

 

And I didn't unlocked yet the AMX proto....I also invested some blueprints in them, will WG refund me the blueprints ?

I think I read that we'll be getting rewards for playing it.  Important test that they need to be as close to regular randoms as possible - rather than 15v15 ShitBarns.

Are they removing them from the tech tree or from the game? 

If its the tech tree than I would have to buy those tanks in order to keep them right? Same as it was with 2 FV's that were removed from tech tree?

Removed from the tech tree so they become the Black Market tanks or Bond Shop tanks for either 22kk credits or 15k bonds :D

 

So yes, better buy them now.

So far, i get a Rubicon 2.0 vibe. (92 tanks to be removed, mostly the historical ones). HE nerf when people asked for a APCR/HEAT/HESH lower penetration (not damage, but penetration). More corridor maps incoming. HP buffs when people were asking for armor buffs. Grind events after grind events instead of fun modes. Removal of the crew instead of easing the XP crew grind and the implementation of a commander with more grind XP than what the entire crew needed (just take a look at WoWp and WoWs and you will know what to expect). 

 

I am not sure what is happening at Minsk, but this looks bad. Really bad.

They will be removed from the tech tree and you will be able to buy them in a new section of the shop called "Collectors vehicles" if i understood correctly. You wont need to have researched previous lines and they will come with top modules.

I have one thing to say: New Balance will result in a very different WoT than the one we all know. 

Fan favourites such as the Hetzer, KV-1S (as we currently know it at Tier V), SU-85B, Pz. 38t n.A., Pz. 1 C, T67, Hotchkiss H35, UE 57 and more are all gone. Not to mention all the low-tier French mediums, all arty below tier V. 

 

Don't even mention the high-tiers like the AMX 30 and 30B, the JPanther II, 113, T-62A... Darnit!! I hope we'll still be able to buy removed tanks if they've been researched... 

 

The KV-1S has been moved to tier VI, to replace the KV-85...
The Cavalier and T6 Medium have been added to the UK and US lines respectively.

 

I will hurry and get those juicy low tier tanks before this patch lands. What do you guys think of this?

Btw, the Cavalier and T6M are visible in the Upcoming tankspage of the wiki. Check it out, there are some really interesting things in there. Note that it isn't an official source of info, AFAIK. But hey, at least you get to see the American WTF E100: the T58 Heavy!

Top configuration?! Some people prefer a certain gun, other another gun (see Hetzer, M2 Medium, Stug IIIB and so on).

Great, thanks for the info.

Now next question that I have...and I know there is still little to no information about this, and I dont expect an answer :P The question is, what currency will these "Collector vehicles" be available for, would that be credit or bonds or gold? :confused:

 

I'd rather spend 20 mil credits now and buy them from tech tree than pay some absurd amount of bonds or gold later on :P just thinking out loud :ohmy:

No, the collectors vehicles is only about low tier tanks. The tanks that I posted in the photo (from tier 6 to 10) are gonna be available either in next years BM, Bond Shop and other Events.

 

Collector vehicles will be availalbe for credits as they said in the video but it is only for the tanks from tier 1 to 5

Blitz removed all low tiers and a few mid-tiers a year ago. And people that had them got to keep them as "reward tanks". As in 1.5x crew xp etc.

 

But as I have all the tech trees done. I just need credits to buy all the stuff that's gonna get removed. As I also have over 50 free slots since WG have been so generous of late.

That depends on what their plan is. It will be a reward tank then if that's the case. So then one gun is all you get. As blitz removed low tiers for two reasons when they did it. To make it less confusing for new players. And to make it easier for them. The last part included removing derp guns on tier 4 and down. So the M2 medium there, only has the 37mm gun. Tho if WG's plan is not with regards to derps. Then how knows.

Since I've almost got the AMX30 unlocked I guess it's time to use some blueprints and to buy it. Before I'm stuck with 160K XP on the Bc12t......

Low tiers you will have to still research guns etc. Top tiers you are gonna have everything unlocked from the go i believe.

Edit: nvm the lefh is unchanged. My other premiums are though.
