Several new American vehicles, the Yoh tanks, well soon be sent to the Supertest. Check out our latest developer diary for a sneak peek at the newcomers and their entirely new mechanic.

Can't tell if you are too late or too early for April Fools day.

"Down, down, down."

"Would the fall NEVER come to an end!?!"

"I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?"

The WoT dev said aloud; "I must be getting somewhere near the centre of the earth."

Just confirm that the Japanese TDs will never, ever be added on WoT PC (they were added on Blitz 1.5 years ago already, and looks like it'll take at least another year before they come on PC), so I can finally stop my miserable, 7-8 year wait for them. Please. Thank you in advance.

 

On the other hand, I'm REALLY glad you didn't adopt the autoloaders for these tanks on Blitz. For those who don't know, on WoT Blitz, the tier 10 Yoh has a two shot autoloader with very fast intra clip reload, very similar to the Vz. 55. We really don't need more of those...so I'm glad WG didn't go with that. Also, another nice thing about these tanks is that they were actually real designs, despite their ridiculous design. Sure, they were never built and didn't get past wooden mockups/blueprints, but even that is already much better than outright fictional designs, something that Czech and Italian heavies (almost certainly) are.

 

The fact they're seemingly yet another bunch of hulldown monsters and the new mechanic that kinda screws over the whole idea of immobilizing a tank by tracking it worries me, though.

To be honest these are the same shenanigans you tried before with the WVs and much more blatantly with the soviet double barrel tanks; the same type of corporate language the likes of: "we might", "this is not set in stone", "These are just possiblities", "It's a project", "It's only supertesting", "Balance is important", the In Development orange tag and on and on... So why do not come foward and frontally say "These things are coming to the game and you are going to like them."

 

Well, at least now we know what might be in the Loot Boxes this year.

Yep. My first tought when I saw the video cover: "Hum... which country is September, 15th the same habit as April the 1st in Brits and December 28th in Spain and Hispanic America? Maybe in Russia?"

That turret in that angle seems like a joke or the engineer going out of ink. :P

And one premium tank. No, the link it´s working and the video is visible. It you can´t see it maybe it´s a problem of your browser. This is the link to the video: (17) Developer Diaries: American Yoh Tanks - YouTube

Why does every new line need a gimmick now, Sure new mechanics can be fun but we don't need them EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. The last time we got a normal line that didn't have some sort of mechanic or gimmick was the 60tp IIRC.

And look at it now - the 60TP is still a very popular line that isn't exactly breaking gameplay or anything. Then you have the Rinoceronte which literally has gimmick on top of gimmicks, yet it ended up being an utter failure and nobody plays it. You don't need gimmicks to have interesting, unique lines. At least these tanks don't have autoloaders/autoreloaders or anything, so that's at least something, but still...

Take a look for instance at the game and how many events are always going on (FL, SH, competitives, marathons, specials like Halloween...) sometimes even a few overlap at the same time.

There are bunch of other things and sure the reasons for all of them differ; But IMO at a higher level they all share aspects and looks like WG it's just trying to grab the attention of the costumers, which is something very much normal.

The thing is that lately they seem to be overdoing it a lot; Like the clown child in classroom, desperately seeking attention "Hey! Look at me, look at me!"

On top of that, add the somewhat shady way they have been doing things lately, specially during this summer; or sometimes just plainly odd ie: crew 2.0, which seems to be WG randomly throwing stuff at the wall "See what sticks."

This is getting silly.  Please transfer the time people spent on this into sorting out the existing game problems :(

I love it how players complained about the Wheeled YoloWagens and how shooting the wheels doesn't stop them in place. 
And now you're implementing this on tracked vehicles. Epic stuff, what can I say, thank you for listening
