Title, but I'll elaborate a bit as well.

 

I like the idea of collector vehicles and cleaning up the tech trees a bit as they were getting quite messy indeed. However, I think the collector vehicle stuff is not capitalized on enough. 

 

For instance: this would be the ultimate way to bring back some old vehicles that fell behind on their tech tree mates. SU-122-54 for example (okay it might need some buffs) which was not a bad tank as a concept, it was just ruined by the fact it didn't quite fit the same basic design as the rest of the branch. FV4202 105 as well, it's not very historical but I think it was a nice concept as a tank. And it would be fun to see that old thing back. Same goes for the OG M24 Chaffee by the way.

 

But I also see potential in adding new tanks to the game. I can imagine it's quite hard to make new branches all the time, especially for tech trees that have plenty of tanks in them. What if there's a single German medium that wouldn't fit any branch but would be nice for the game? Instead of milking them as premium tanks, could be a cool collector tank.

 

Basically what my main issue is, is that the majority of collector vehicles don't change for the people who are advanced at the game. Getting the JPanther II or T-62A as collector vehicle would mean for me nothing, I could've just rebought them when they were TT tanks.

 

I think it would be an interesting feature to add more tanks to the game without either making them boring rare premium tanks (especially at tier 9 and 10) or bond rewards. Plus it would be cool to see some tanks that time forgot back in to the game.

They did say this was the good aspect about the collector's tab. As in an easier way of adding new vehicles, old removed vehicles, or even small nations there. But I doubt we will see anything there soon, as it's still fairly new.

If I had to guess, they'd focus on the Polish mediums and then Italian heavies first, and then maybe experiment with it. I wonder how they'll make certain vehicles available since they did kinda imply that they could add tanks of other nations that don't warrant a tech tree, but to get the higher tier stuff you need to have progressed through the tech trees corresponding to the tank you want to buy.

You just fit it somewhere in a crossing like they did with the KV-13.

Won't be excited for Italian Heavies unless they have better than average aiming time and dispersion. A heavy with BIA, vents  and all gunnery perks still misses so much that it impacts the chance of winning, and crew grind. And this is on a 53% wr IS-2...

I literally don't see the point in any collector's vehicle now, unless you want to play a specific tank that has been moved over there.

As a person who has played the SU-122-54, and have not been able to Ace it yet before it got removed, I'd happily have it and other tanks return.

Seriously though, if I ever manage to Ace all tanks, but still won't have an Ace on the 122-54 because it's still unavailable, I'm gonna cry. :arta:

When the collector vehicles will be available?

Information temporarily unavailable just like the store, clan page or recruit page.

Not really, you have to grind another ruski Tier X first before you can buy the T-62a.

I don’t see much point in playing collector’s vehicles. How they should/could have implemented them was by allowing crew swap like in premium tanks but without bonus XP and bonus credits. Like other reward vehicles. I’m not going to dedicate a crew to a tank I occasionally play for fun that leads nowhere.

I actually approve of the idea of cleaning up tech trees. So I wouldn't say that's the solution and actually a good reason for collector vehicles.

I have quite a few of these vehicles already in the lower tiers. Some of them I was very surprised to learn had become "Collector" vehicles. Of the ones I do not have, I really wouldn't consider buying any of them unless I had to. Having said that, at this point in my playing time, I have already tried a number of them a second time and not enjoyed them even as a more experienced player.

 

But that means that I couldn't recommend that any new player tries many of them either. I can see that many of them will rust away in time. Many will have been rushed through or skipped anyway when in the Tech Trees.

 

One problem that I see in their appeal is that when players are new to the game and are playing the bottom tiers, they don't have the credits, XP and crews (possibly also Gold) to spare for vehicles that have no relevance in the grind. Many, more-seasoned, veterans will never go back down there once they reach the higher tiers.

They say they will add new collectors vehicles.......

 

But they also said there would be new multinational vehicles after the Rudy and look what happened there.

I really see no point in collectors vehicles,..while with TECH-TREE tanks you get exp to unlock equipment and tiers, with Premiums you get credit potential, with collectors you get-NOTHING!?

This "nothing" is usually why its designed for collectors, as they value collecting things that don't necessarily have a practical use or "value".

If you are not into collecting tanks, or want a specific tank that is a collectors only, then there is no reason to buy them, yet the tech tree is a bit more streamlined for an easier way/choice of progression.

They should have accelerated crew training tbh. Why waste 6 million on a T62A when the 140 is slightly better.
