Hello,

 

With the latest tech-tree changes update, what will happen in the (special) case of the HWK-12 which also leads to Leopard PT A? Since HWK-12 will be purely scout line in the tech-tree after the changes accordingly to latest update information.

 

For example:

If the tank RU-251 is already researched, and you (want/)have additionally earned 100k XP (out of 227k XP) on HWK-12 to research the tank Leopard PT A.

Which of the following things will happen?

1. Leopard PT A will be researched once changes applies.

2. Leopard PT A will no longer be able for research through HWK-12 and 100k XP will be "uselessly" locked on it unless its converted to freexp.

 

*Could any of the official WG staff answer the above question to avoid assumptions?

 

Regards,

QuattroX

I was wondering the same thing with the TD line, with the situation on jpanther -> Ferdinand and jpanther II. Hope we get an answer ;)

In the past this has gone one of two ways.

 

They drop or delay the change, or the exp gets locked on the tank unless you use it before the patch.

 

You have maybe a month or so, I suggest you get the Leo unlocked.

And for example, if i have the jpather II researched, and not the ferdinand (the jpanther will get removed from the tech tree, what happens to the xp invested in it?, will it be moved to the jpanther?

They didn't say what would happen then, based on previous changes I would expect the exp to move to the Jagdtiger.  Although when they removed the T-50-2 they put the exp on something completely random (KV-1S IIRC).

For your case we do not have a definite answer yet but keep you updated as soon as we have one.

In your case it should be relatively easy

 

The Jagdtiger and the Ferdinand both should be researched

Thanks all for the replies. I guess its a wait-and-see type of action for now. But I hope we will know as soon as possible in order for us to be able to react to whatever WG decides.

Bump to not be forgotten. Maybe with the new test server update there is more information? Still seems it leans toward "useless" xp route...

After the patch you'll end up with a bunch of xp on the HWK that you can convert with gold. Go for the Leo PTA before 1.19 hits live or your previous work will basically be wasted. On the plus side, if you research the PTA you'll get the entire line before it researched as well.
