    1. Actually, Valkyria Chronicles is a Japanese game just saying. It’s like saying Final Fantasy is an anime
      But yes I do agree they should stop with these “special” tanks like the “Black-series”….

        1. Yep indeed, but that doesn’t mean that this tank is based off from the anime, it’s based off from the original source material like the game. :)
          For example, FF has been adapted into an anime (movie or series I don’t know) aswell.

  2. Keep these terrible weeb tanks away from the game. Thank you.

    Think about it, WG balance departmant has wasted their time with these things, when they would have used that time to develop new lines like Japanese TDs or Cheiftain. Let that sink in.

  3. Seing how much time they waste on useless shit like Chinese TDs and dumb Anime tanks that simply don’t belong in this game outside of an April Fools mode, I am not even surprised of how long testing phases become and how useless they end up being.

    The time they spend on this shit is the time they cannot spend to balance the game or add new featutes.
    Nice choice of priorities WG.

        1. Name a TV show (fictional/drama) or Movie that’s all about tanks off top of your head (minus points if you had to google or look up your library); You could count them on one hand. Fewer, if they’re not mainstream. Girls und Panzer is simply the most recent one I can recall that’s about tanks.

          1. Players are generally drawn to this game because of historical/ military interest. History books, classes, documentaries on tv, war movies and even stories told by old relatives.

            I bet a large majority of players started playing because one of the reasons stated above, not because they saw a cartoon about girls driving tanks. More importantly one that didn’t even air in the 2 biggest WoT regions.

          2. There are so many war movies that are about the tank and its crew or have scenes that have tanks. Most were introduced to the game because they had had friends or family members who were tankers, or are tankers themselves, or were introduced by literature. Not by some third rate anime that people only give a crap about because of the tanks.

    Leave anime out of this Wargaming. It has no place in a 1st WW to early Cold War tank game.

                    1. Most tanks in Wot are engineering solutions (minus the t-22, which didn’t have enough internal space). I can appreciate the compromises and the varying design drivers but these valkarie tanks are just concept art, fantasy tanks unbound by real world scenarios and technological development.

                    2. Gallian tanks are designed mostly on mid-war French and early WW2 German designs, with occasional inspiration elsewhere (KV). They may not be built with IRL history in mind, but the do have their own ruleset and their proportions are not unrealistic. And while Edelweiss may not have actual blueprints, it does have a rough 3D layout of its internals.

                    3. They have lots of ballast for looks and stuff like camo (representing the side rather than acting as actual camo) and additional armor is more akin to thier origin. Some of the smaller models have somewhat big turrets for their size, but anything on Gallian side could be built with conventional engine and work IRL sans some more extreme designs imo.

                1. Why would you protrude the front off so significantly? Why not round it off like the Sherman? It’ll only make easier for it to be stuck in a ditch.

                  What are the ballistic purposes for the rounded rear?

                  Why are the front fenders covered in leather?

                  Why does that thin shroud exist on top of the gun mantlet?

                  Why are the plates welded together in the form of triangles?

                  Why is the front casted if its not going to take advantage of nice ballistic shape.

                  1. What’s with the shape of UFP – that one I’ve been asking that myself too. Generally wrote it off as lack of combat experience on Edelweiss since it precedes any other similiar tanks by decades. Although looking at the design artworks that bulged shape might be actually due to large transmission being at the front. (Early design sketechs have both bulky and flat variants, no idea why they went with this one in the end, but yes, this was probably a remnant of very early art style, in which the VC had very different vibe and was way closer to usual high fantasy stuff rather than pseudo-historical setting.) Why is it also to an extent on the prototype used by the Nameless I frankly have no idea, besides it being successor to Edelweiss.

                    What might be worth pointing out is that Edelweiss is a pet project of sorts and was not designed for mass production. It’s basically a huge idea testbed and was not even attempted for series production for being expensive AF and EWI has ended by the time it was finished anyway. Nameless prototype is an attempt to come up with something more mass-produceable (and modular) using ideas form Edelweiss. (Actual mass-produced tanks in its weight category came only after EWII I think.)

                    Thin shroud mantlet covers recoil mechanisms I think. Not covered by designbooks, but it does look like there are 2 hydraulic thingies underneath it.

                    Round rear of Nameless tank is actually not round in the game and not even on all designs either. Either way that is a radiator piece and not a part of actual armor.

                    Why are front fenders covered in leather – don’t know don’t care. Not exactly a part of tank design.

                    Why are there triangle welds – tbh I didn’t even notice that until you asked. That one’s prolly really just for show – no other VC tank seems to be using this kind of weld.

                    Well, there goes my evening.

                    Like

                    1. Well. if it weighed 35 tons, why why not extend it the tank or develop a small transmission because that is already huge as fuck.

                      So… While the whole tank is protected with relatively thick armor, the recoil mechanism that’ll dictate whether it will be able to fire is left exposed?

                      Well the leather part seems like it was done professionally so…

                      Regardless, the radiators are still pointlessly rounded.

                      Also, the side skirts barely cover the sides.

                    2. The tank already “exists”, so “why not do it differently” line of questioning is kinda pointless. There is definitely a reason for why the tank was made the way it is. What exactly is that reason will in the end be just a speculation from our side. That said, jp designers tend to take these sort of things far enough to have internals and functionality figured out, so I’d certainly not discard anything weird as de facto wrong.

                      LTvz35 tanks had their recoil cylinder right in the open above the gun, worked well enough for them. Any sort of armor profile is likely provided by WG anyway.

                      Like

                    3. That’s likely due to the recoil cylinder thickness being a similar thickness to the surrounding armor.

                      My guess is, is that someone with no clue on tank designs made an interesting design for the game.

They try to learn japanese through the anime they watch and usually end up pronouncing it wrong and looking like a complete idiot.

    I know there are many blueprint tanks in WoT but at least those make some sense unlike these stupid looking anime tanks that really don’t belong into this game.

    Think logically, most people started playing WoT bcause they are interested in history or enjoy WW2 era tanks so they come here to play around with KV-1, Tiger I, KT, T-34, IS and similar beasts of WW2.

    If you want anime tank in WoT you can just mod the game and have it like that but don’t enforce shit like that on others that don’t like mixing anime with WW2 genre.

    Keep this in a special mode and i will gladly try them out, just don’t defile other normal modes.

      These two don’t really seem to have a analog in the game already is the thing…

      I mean everything in WoWs works out because they have a analog to switch with. Even harikaze has Kinda a analog (save for the turrets.)

      But It probably will be just fine… This kinda rage and feeling always happens with these kinda things… doesn’t even have to be Anime.

  19. judging from the game’s really tricked out stats, Edelweiss would practically stand as a Panther II clone with the L/100 88 gun’s stats and softer armor while the Nameless is practically a KT clone. I just hope to God they don’t follow with VC’s stats of the tank running 60 km/h because hell even a goddamn Panther can’t run that fast or that autoloading mechanism. I’m guessing it fires AP/APCR/HE or AP/HEAT/HE to try and emulate that bullshit Ragnite round.

    though for armor, shooting its ass would insta-kill the engine yet its kinda amusing the tank’s original config had a short ass 8.8cm gun which should be as long as the KwK 40 L/43
