Techtrees are going to lose tanks after the Sandbox changes.

What tanks are worth a grind before they are no longer available ?

 

like:

- Jagdpanther II

- T62A

- T71 DA

- M4A3E2 Jumbo (will lose HE derp)

- ...

 

(is there a list of all tanks that will be removed ?)

And for what reason would you have those?

 

Just to have them?

Just to have vehicles that are not longer in game?

 

Does the fact that most of them are quite bad make you doubt purchasing them at all?

I have T-62 researched for more than 2 years now, did not buy it, and have no intention of buying it.

 

I mean probably some of them are fun to play, T71 from that list comes up, but to have something just to have it, and never use it.

In a game you might stop playing completely in the near future...seems pointless..but world is a strange place.

You can buy them for credits later right?

 

So no hurry i Guess.

After the changes, you can no longer buy them for credits (except maybe auctions), only the tier V and below tanks will be available still.

 

I don't think any is really worth it. Though JP and T71 in particular can be fun.

The 2 I will grind for sure, I suggest AMX30 too. 30B only if you're a real hipster.

T71 is amazing, one of the best tier for tier lights in the game IMO, and the AMX 30 is one of the best tier 9 mediums and again one of the best non-armoured tier for tier meds in the game IMO.

 

Jp2 is alright, can have some moments, T-62A and 113 are not bad tanks, there are just better tanks available. 

 

Jumbo without the turret and derp seems a bit pointless, buy yourself a Thunderbolt if you want an armoured Sherman.

 

Probably should expect though that with these tanks being removed they are unlikely to see any buffs or changes for a very long time.

Hmm, perhaps I should grind the AMX 30 then.

Only the Tier 1-5 taks that are removed. WG haven't said how the purchasing of the Tier 6+ tanks is going to be handled, which clearly means it won't be through credits imho. Most likely they'll sell them for gold as reward tanks, but bonds is also an option.

Well, I want the T62 and AMX30 as they are iconic real-world tanks (which is the reason I first got into WoT). Even if the T62 isn't that great I'd rather drive that than an Object that never existed.

AMX 30 is pretty meh and probably not worth the grind unless you are already close.

Well, yeah, 110k on the tier 8 AMX light. Doable in a few weeks I'd say. And I've got 15 mil credits lying around that I had ready for good offers in the auction.

This is just like your opinion, dude :P

 

KV85 is a must have as well if we include tier 6.

Not clear. You can buy lower tiers for credits. Anything above 5 is probably going to become event tonks. So, it makes sense to buy them before the patch.

imho. All in all, something like 12-14 vehicles.

You may want to have the Churchill game carrier. Just in garage is enough, no need to grind through it. Once the tree rework gets released, you will automatically have the AT-7 unlocked.

By the same logic the VK30.01 D might be another option for "accelerated research".

Not sure regarding the M7 and T21, or whether it needs the M71 DA to unlock the T69...

Just a note, they won't be removed, only moved.

 

Up to tier 5, to a special shop you can only access once you unlock a tier 6 of that nation. Once there, you'll be able to purchase those tanks with credits, no need for XP, and once you have them, you can grind their modules and they won't lead to any other tank.

 

From tier 6 and up, there are no details other than that they'll become reward vehicles, doing all the premium ones do except earning extra credits. So far WG hasn't said how they can be obtained, so I'd focus on at least those being unlocked so you can purchase them at a moment's notice.

So my first battle going back to that BatChat 12t as player returned and coming to grips with the game again.

 

 

Yeah, I'll grind the AMX 30.

this is WG dont forget, so the ones available for credits wont be anywhere near the same price as they currently are on the tech tree, also the `reward` vehicles will no doubt be available for a stupid amount of gold.

 

Dont let them kid you that these changes are for the good of the game, the only incentive behind this is greed.
