Please, which 92 tanks will be removed exactly - and when?

There was a official YouTube to see with some basic report about the upcoming changes.
Among others, they showed the planned techtrees for USA, Russia and Germany.
At the Russians, 13 tanks are to be removed.

Some players have better informations due to game testing.

So, there is already very precise information from the community,
- which tanks are removed from the tech tree
- which tanks are fully researched when the predecessor is in the garage
- which tanks come one level higher
- the old prices, new prices and compensation

Some players are smart enough to take advantage of this opportunity:
- The so called "Collectors Tanks" receive a bonus of 1.5 for crew experience
- you can save time on the development of the following tanks
- you can save money if you buy the affected, already researched tanks again (and even sell them again with profit)

TL/DR
Can we have a exact list of the 92 tanks that are going to be removed?
When will the 92 tanks be removed from the tech tree?

 I think there is such a list, i just dont remember when/where i have seen it. You can either go and look for it yourself or wait for someone to bring it to you.

The thing to keep in mind here is that nothing is removed as such. The low tiers that are 90% of the tanks removed will just get their own section. And you can buy then from there anytime you want. As long as you have a tier 6 or higher in that nation. The list taken from the site is still subject to change. But at the last update, it was as follows.

- Any tank you are grinding when it's removed will automatically unlock the next tank for you. So if you do grind the JP II, the tier 9 will be unlocked regardless of how far you are in the grind. That goes for any one of them. Tho the only one we don't know 100% how they will do it is the T21. As the next tank after it, the T71DA is also getting removed.

 

- The changes atm that we know of are as follows for the UK. Crusader is going from tier 5 medium to a tier 6 light. Covenanter from tier 4 to 5. The low tier Crusiers from I to VI will be moved around, and be the new tier 1 to 4. Tier 4 Valentine will go from tier 4 to 3, and the Valentine AT is the new tier 4 TD. For the US the T54E1 is now a HT. USSR moved the BT-7 to tier 4, SU-76M to tier 4, KV-1S to tier 6. German made the VK 30.01 to a medium... again. And the tier 6 medium VK 30.01P is now a HT.

 

- Compensation? You get to keep anything you have in your garage regardless. You get the next tier for free if they remove anything you are grinding.  And if they add any new tank on lower tiers vs where you are on the line. You get that for free. That's about it.

I don't think they should do anything with the tech tree. It's fine as it is.

 

I doubt clutter is the reason... All the lines and routes to each particular tier 10 tank are clearly visible.

 

What really bothers me is how they'll handle tier 6+ tanks in this change... On the test, they locked the Sherman Jumbo in an undesirable configuration (top turret with 76mm gun), without the option of switching modules and using the stock thick turret and the 105mm derp, which is the superior configuration. Let us choose the modules the tanks had...why is it allowed on lower tier tanks, but not on tier 6+ tanks?

There will be an exact list in the CT when the change is about to go live.

 

Nothing is set in stone until then and announced changes have been changed before.  Even at CT changes can happen.

 

If you decide you are going to chase unlocking certain tanks before then you do so at the risk that they may not be removed at all or the way they are to be removed might change.

 

Many have made mistakes by acting prematurely before.

This. I would still recommend grinding the lines if you can tho. But don't buy any of the mid to high tiers you don't have on the removed list yet until it's closer to patch day. As wasting 12 million on the tier X's you don't have now, only for them to stay later anyway is a bit of a waste. So save your credits at least if anything for now.

Well if it's WG then sometime soon TM as they don't seem to do anything these days when it's patch day. Patch day these days just seems to be another excuse to try and sell you something or that's what it feels like.

That is debatable, not everyone enjoys derps...

Also the change of the tech tree will propel newer players to "normal" tiers faster while also keeping 'veterans" that want to grind a "new" line away .The dedicated sealclubbers of low tiers will keep clubbing each other pretending their are good at the game.

From my PoV that is a win win situation...Unless you are one of those people that think that being blasted by a Hetzer or any other low tier broken tank is supposed to teach you something,..

just a curious question

 

tanks like SU-76M and Su-85B, or the german VK30.01 and 30.02, will they be merged into a single vehicle or the lower tier 1 just removed?

SU-76M, USSR, Tier III, will become Tier IV.
You can think of a replacement of the former SU-85B on that place.
In my opinion, the configuration of the SU-85B will stay untouched
because it will be a "Collector - or Special Tank".
 
Same goes for the other examples you have given.
 
It is not clear how WG is going to deal with the Tier III + IV arties when the Arty is planned to start at Tier V.

Just to make it clear.

I am grinding the T-54 and I have the XP needed to research the T-62A or the Obj.140 ( just 1).

Now if I research and buy the T-62A will that mean that after the patch the T62A will become a special vehicle AND I will get the Obj. 140 unlocked and available to buy? It seams fair because I researched one of the tier 10s available before the patch no?

As a person who tend to know everything about the 92 tanks that will be removed from the techtree, you can start to give answers here.
