Will those of us that put months into grinding t62a, amx30b and 113 be reimbursed the xp needed to grind them lines now they will be available for credits??  I have t62a and i am allready on tier9 of the amx line. Should i continue bothering with the amx line or just wait untill i get it for the credits instead?

I thought they were getting converted into 'special' vehicles?

Although I have been known to be wrong on occasion...:hiding:

I think OP assumes they will be sold on the Black Market at some point, this is a huge assumption...

 

Slightly off topic but is anything actually worth actively grinding out and keeping?

 

I don't know a thing about Chinese HTs but isn't the AMX inferior to say a Patton (which I already have) and the T-62a is pointless if one owns an Object 140? (Which I have also).

In the sandbox result page WG did post. They stated the following.

 

Block Quote

 If these changes go into the main version, these vehicles, including those of Tier VI–X, will be accessible and available for purchase with credits. There’s no need to rush into researching these vehicles as you will be able to buy them at any time after the potential update goes live.

 

That also did put some speculation on the "special vehicle" part for those tanks. As collectors tanks did not have universal crew slots or 1.5x crew XP.

Ground out the T62A today, overall quite happy but, most importantly, the grind was actually enjoyable - T54 is a great tank :)

According to the sandbox results article, they will be available for purchase at any time. The article itself was rushed and written loosely, so I did ask around, but didn't get a definitive answer, probably as it's not 100% decided yet. If I were to guess, there should be some kind of restriction before you can obtain a tank (probably having researched and/or bought the tank of the respective nation and same tier), because I highly doubt they will make a T10 tank instantly available for credits, even if they sold it for 2x or 3x the current price. That would mean a new account could skip to T10 straight ahead with a few hours of credit grind, which is simply contradictory to what is Wargaming trying to achieve. I guess we will have to wait until around mid-March to see what will future bring.

From what I understood, all the tanks up to tier5 will be in the game and anyone will be able to buy. They won't be researchable through the tech tree.

From tier6 and above they will become special. They will not become premiums, but they will be like prizes of in game missions. maybe even in the bond shop.

I have researched all the vehicles in the game and now I am starting to buy back these.

I hope they do remove a couple of tanks from the tech tree and turn them into "special" vehicles. It makes things a bit more interesting.

They arent very exciting prizes are they? The 113 is abysmal, the t62a is ok but the 2 other ru t10s are better, not sure on the french one, I assume its bad as U never see them in battle.

 

Actually you very rarely see any of the 3 tanks in a battle.. I wouldnt be making an effort to grab them while they are still in the tech tree or later when they are prizes... just no real point

If you have researched it but not bought it does it mean you have wasted your time. Do I need to buy it now to get the cheaper rate if it is to increase. Or just put it down bad luck that I researched a duff tank.

Pretty much this ^

 

I don't think WG will just let players buy T10s after 4-5 hours of creating an account and grind credits. 

 

There'll be some other conditions or absolutely high price compared to the tank quality. 

Overall, wait till we see what will happen after march. :)

The initial idea for those as they were tier 2 to 5 was that you needed a tier 6 or higher in that nation to buy them. So I suspect for the T-62A if they do it like that for them too. You might need a tier X in the Russian tech tree unlocked first.

That was the first statement. It changed once the tests were over and the results came in. Now they are mentioning the same for tier 6 to X for credits at least. But not if they will be the same price or 3x more. Or even if they get to have a special tank status, or the same as the rest. As in modules are all there, vs locked-in elite mode. That they did not mention in detail. But as mentioned above, everything is still subject to change as per the norm.

i really dont care about those craptanks like 113 and 30b, t62a is still workable just because of turret armor and amazing gun handling.

If T62A becomes a speshul vehicle, does that mean you can put any Russian medium crew in it? So it will be like a reward vehicle?

 

Sounds pretty gud, mine doesn't have a crew at the moment at all.
