WoT – Various Stuff 06.09.2017

Source: Rykoszet

  • The real reason why the Chieftain Mk. 6 isn’t implemented yet, is because WG is trying to fill out a branch starting from the Churchill GC
  • There’s an idea to (re)move the Churchill GC and make a link like with the JP2 and Ferdinand in the German TD tree
  • Polish tech tree is slated for 2018/2019
  • Italians are also predicted for that time span, with the emphasis on 2019 so the Poles ‘quiet down’
  • CN TDs are a bulls-eye, so the JP super-heavy TDs will become reality
  • New prem tanks ‘soonish’. There’s an idea to move some prems from the Supertest to the regular trees

  1. “CN TDs are a bulls-eye, so the JP super-heavy TDs will become reality”

    I REALLY hope WG don’t fuck this up and use real TDs not some fantasy shit like with the Chinese line even if they have to unhistorically buff them to be viable.

    “New prem tanks ‘soonish’. There’s an idea to move some prems from the Supertest to the regular trees”

    U wot m8? WG just released a new Chinese TD, going to sell the new STG maybe this weekend and going to sell the new French AMX TD soon.

    1. You dont even need to buff the late model of Ho-Ri III to fit into tier 10, as recent information states that 1100 HP engine was at least planned. It would be basically like Japanese Object 263, with a smaller gun but more than twice better depression and better gun arc.

  2. ” JP super-heavy TDs ”

    But why? There is no need for that

    Especially with recent find that states that the final version of the Ho-Ri was supposed to have 1100 HP engine, so it would definitely be competitive enough for tier 10, even without autoloader, and thats with barely modifying its historical specs

    I cry if they make the branch full of fakes. Chinese TD line having full of fakes is atleast understandable due to lack of candidates, but you can build like 2/3 of the Japanese TD line with Wikipedia information alone.

    Dont do this to me WG ;_;

      1. Even the heaviest Ho-Ri variant weights at best around 50 tons. Its large vehicle for sure, about as big as the Ferdinand, but would you call it super-heavy, especially compared to the heavy tanks Japan has in-game? I wouldnt. The gun is also relatively small caliber.

          1. This argumentation is lagging quite a big. Nobody at WG responsible for QA knows how heavy these – really big – tanksdestroyers were.

            So it is very well possible that they meant with “super heavy” – super big – and thus the Ho-Ri TDs.

      1. Our problem isn’t WG adding a new line, but adding a make up line when they could make a real one.

        I don’t want to see casemated Type 4-5 TDs and stuff like that if it’s possible to do a historical line.

  3. China COULD have made a real TD line, but instead, they’ve added fakes. (There’s a FTR article about such a line actually)
    Are they gonna do the same with Japan?
    Oh, and more premiums, that’s just what we needed.

    1. There is a certain catch: those blueprints came from the Kongzhong, company that runs WoT in China and that created the Chinese TDs.

      It is confirmed that the entire TD line is well, fake. However, some of those “blueprints” are actually implemented in way or another as Chinese TDs. I think that those tanks mentioned in the FTR article, or atleast some of them, are all Kongzhong fakes, it was just not known that was the case back then.

      Then again, its China. We dont really know how historical the tech tree actually is. It is even possible that all obscure tank designs (including T-34-X series, tier 9-10 LT, 110, 112, 113, and 121/121B) in the tree are all fakes.

      In return you can literally go to just Wikipedia and you find IRL pictures of already like half of the branch, and thats just by visiting the Wikipedia.

      Then again, they said this in the Gamescom QA:

      “We have collected quite a lot of information on Japanese SPGs and tank destroyers and are now processing this information. Right now, it’s way too soon to speak about introducing any of these vehicles to the game. For now, the Polish tech tree has a higher priority.”

      So I still have hopes up and at least low/midtiers are likely historical. However, it is quite possible we will see TD(s) based on the superheavies at higher tiers.

        Inversely, it’s entirely possible they’re all real. We literally have no way of ever checking any of this out short of overthrowing the Chinese government.

          1. Oh, that’s easy. Chinese tanks appeal to the Chinese audience, where KongZhong makes their money from. So if there’s a lack of real designs, it would be very tempting for KongZhong to ‘speculate’ them. After all, who will be able to verify?

    Do they mean purchasable with gold, or they will make some premiums which are not released normal tanks with trees for them?

    Fuck that! I played the tank to get an ace but that was it!

    1. As i understand, currently some tanks on the supertest were considered as premium tanks. But WG is considering to use them as regular tanks rather than premium to complete new branches.

  8. “CN TDs are a bulls-eye, so the JP super-heavy TDs will become reality”

    i could be wrong but there’s a possibility that japan would have two seperate Td branch which will be located at top and bottom the first line is like the hybrid between thin skinned Td’s and French high tier autoloading gun the tier 7 Chi ri could be buff significantly since it will branch out as a Td variant ie ho-ri 1,2 & 3 the Td’s thin skinned btanch will start as tier 4 which branch out of the Type 4 Ke-ho fast maneuverable and highly undetectable Td with a good fast firing gun but very low pen much like the E25 but with low HP and View range making it a ambush TD the second Td line start also with the Tier 4 IE Type 95 Heavy tank the Td is open cased meaning it’s gun can be damaged easily however Hp and depression makes the Second line a CQC and detectable Td more like a mini branch line of Jagdpanzer E100 but japanese the armor on it is logically thin at tier 4 but when it goes higher tier the armor becomes greater and guns become naval line maneuverability is off since this behemoths are well armored and can’t win any encirclement combat so defending a choke point on map is a must also mobility is off since they lack of it for there armor maps which favors on this second JP line are Himmelsdorf,Krakov,mountain pass (bridge or the waterfalls),sacred valley (HT valley),Ruinberg,fishers man bay, ensk,Fjords,Ghost Town ,Live Oaks(Town),Lakeville(Center Choke point),Karelia(mountain valley/the rocky valley),Highway,Serene Coast,(coast),Siegfried Line,Stalingrad,Widepark(Bridge Choke point),Windstorm(Factory Choke point)

  9. the second td’s are big and can be spotted easily so finding cover is a to do list on every user of the branch having that said every T95 or HEAVY TANK DESTROYER users will feel at home when it they are using this Tanks in combat ie Defending choke points key point and Base …….of course it’s not camping if your defending right ? …….moving on there view range is Russian level meaning up close and personal the first one are stealth ambush Tanks much like ninja’s of japan while the second line are big slow high damaging Behemoths much like Shugoki of japan
