Hiya tankers,

 

First off, I apologise for adding 'another' New Balance topic to this section, but I feel it deserves its own thread. (And if mods disagree, then they can close it or move it to the SPG gulag in-game vehicles section. ;))

 

Secondly, I play arty, I admit it (predominantly for the Personal Missions), so hold the pitchforks ppl. Even though it may be an unpopular question to some / most of you, but I wonder what will happen to the SU-14-1 in the proposed* plans with New Balance? There is no mention of it in WG's official YT vid on NB on the list of T6+ tanks that are planned to be removed:

But when we look at the new tech USSR tree, the SU-14-1 is missing.

So,

-Will it be removed - removed; i.e deleted from the game?

-Will it be removed and turned into a special vehicle?

-Oversight by WG by forgetting to add it to the aforementioned list of T6+ vehicles being removed from the tech tree?

-Or just plain, lets-not-include-it-in-the-list-on-purpose-and-hope-people-dont-notice-it-in-order-to-avoid-a-crap-storm-over-an-arty-(potentially)being-turned-into-a-Special-vehicle?

 

*all subject to change of course

 

Would be nice if we got an official responce from a CM on this, but what do you think will happen?

 

Oh, and pls no "arty needs to be removed!" or "the SU-14-1 sucks anyway" comments. Thats not my purpose of this thread. Thank you.

Hopefully it gets removed removed. 

 

But is probably just an oversight and it'll be like all the other tier 6+ tanks being removed from the tech tree and they just forgot to put it on the graphic.

 

Maybe because it was arty, which is contentious at the best of times, they decided to just keep it off the graphics.

Maybe because it was arty, which is contentious at the best of times, they decided to just keep it off the graphics.  My guess too, but since ' the cats out of the bag' why not give an official statement on it already?

Makes sense to remove one of the two if they are to clean house.

In some other threads it was discussed that it will be removed. But we will know the details closer to the release date.

tbh, I am more worried about what happens to the rest of the arty.... it seems to get a major nerf one again.

All the more reason to not touch the tech tree.

 

My guess is they completely forgot about it.

Would it not make a bit more sense if they remove the S-51 since the 14-1 resambles the tech tree a lot more ?

It was mentioned somewhere that they have not decided.  My guess is it will simply be removed and owners will be compensated with the S-51 or credits and possibly exp as has happened when tanks have been removed in the past.

To mess with the tech tree because some "people" cant grasp it is amazing to me, can these people walk and talk at the same time? How thick have you got to be to struggle with the tech tree, seriously?

I'd love to have a Premium, credit-making, Tier VII Soviet SPG, so I can ruin the best MM matchups out there :D

WG have not talked about it, nor mentioned it in any of their announcements. It's just not there. And on the NA and EU stream regarding the changes, it was brought up. But no good reply was given. NA did seem to think that WG still has no idea how to do it yet. As it was just gone from test. And no compensation etc given. I suspect it's the last part they are still trying to figure out in that case.

 

I have it unlocked. But never played it, nor did I ever grind it. As I did have the line done up to the 212A when it was a tier 7. Then the line change did happen when tier X arty was added. I got the 14-1 ,but not 14-2 for some reason. So I had the tier 8 locked, but the 9 available for awhile. So whatever the compensation is. I'm sure I won't mind it as technically I never did grind it. If it stays. Then I'll buy it, free crew trainer and all that for my one Russian arty for missions.
