WoT – Insider Info 14.01.2018

Source: Rykoszet Insider

Today, the sekrit insider pulled up some nice info. First, it’s the incomplete list of Polish tanks which was used by WG. This was the base for the line which they want to create, so some adjustments might and will happen. According to unofficial info, one line is planned, albeit with some sidebranches at tier 8 for medium and heavy tanks. The list contains tanks which WG had data of, or didn’t, but they knew existed.

Light tanks

  • PZInż 140 (other name: 4TP)
  • TKS z n.k.m. 20 A (tested)
  • 7T
  • 7TP
  • 9TP
  • 10TP

Medium tanks

  • 14TP
  • 25TP KSUST
  • 20/25TP P.Habich
  • 20/25TP P.Markowski
  • 20/25TP
  • 20/25TP B.B.T.Br.Panc (Premium tier IV tested)
  • T-34-85M2
  • T-34-85M3
  • T-44
  • T-54AE
  • T-55AM Prototype

Heavy tanks

  • JS-2M
  • JS-3M
  • C.C.P
  • Pancernik

Tank destroyers

  • TKS-D
  • PZLInż.160\PZLInż.161

Arty

  • TKD

All of the tanks won’t be taken into account when making the initial branch, because WG will first test the best proposals.

In other news.

  • Italians will most likely be implemented this year, and if not, next year. The tree will most likely consist mostly of meds and TDs
  • There will be a lot of new prem tanks, such as the T42, planned as a VIII  tier USA tank

  • New prem tanks sales figures weren’t leaked, but WG isn’t happy about the Mauerbrecher selling so bad
  • The WT E 100 (P) is considered as the main prize for the next personal mission season
  • WG has data on CN, JP, and IT arty
  • There’s a chance the JP and CZ trees will get TDs

  • There are plans to expand the existing tech trees and add Yugo, Israeli, or Swiss tanks. The EU tree was scrapped and now it’s the ‘worldwide’ tree, which will have tanks from countries like Austria, Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cuba, Denmark, Egypt, Spain, Finland, Hungary, India, Pakistan, Holland, Peru, and Romania

  1. “Italians will most likely be implemented this year, and if not, next year. The tree will most likely consist mostly of meds and TDs”

    But WG have already confirmed that IT and PL tanks are coming this year. Also some Kongzhong dude said the IT tanks are coming sometime in the 2nd quarter of 2018.

      Think about the term “WG” again.

      It might actually very well be next year because WG’s tendency to postpone stuff.

      1. Multi turret\multi gun tanks will be a huge pain in the ass to balance so I don’t see WG rushing it. Wheeled vehicles are way more likely to come.

    Who would have figured a balanced version of a broken OP (and free) tank would sell badly? Nerf the shit out of the VK100 and people will have an actual reason to pay for the Mauershiet.

    >The WT E 100 (P) is considered as the main prize for the next personal mission season
    Jesus Christ, no one want this piece of piece of unbalanced trash back in any form. For the game’s sake.

      1. It would at least make the choice less obvious between the free and the paying version.

        Why would anyone spend a cent on a trash tank while they can get for free a vehicle having the exact same gameplay, but in ridiculously much better?

    1. honestly the demand for that piece of shit wtf 100 is so high that its inevitable that it will return. i think if its a reward tank thats harder to get than an obj 260 then that will limit the amount of them on the battlefield. id prefer it to come back from personal missions (where it would be exceptionally hard to obtain) rather than come back to the tech line or come from clan wars.

    2. There is nothing ‘balanced’ about the Mauerbrecher. It has all cons and no pros. Too slow moving, too slow turning, the ‘armor’ is a joke because even tier 6 tanks can easily damage it, and it is a massive target. The gun dpm isn’t high enough to ever allow this tank to pull out of a position. The VK 100 armor may be too good, but that doesn’t justify making the armor and armor weakspots on this tank so bad.

    3. The problem is that wg isn’t willing to admit that they broke the matchmaker with this 3/5/7 garbage. Who the fuck wants to be in a tier 8 tank that relies on armor when it’s just going to be gold spammed by super conqs all day?

      1. I agree completely that half the reason the Mauerbrecher sold so bad is likely that considering the current MM, its only real pro (armor) is completely useless since it’s up-tiered every game it plays.

  4. if they bring back the wt e100 as a personal mission reward tank then im ok with it as long as its as difficult to obtain as the obj 260. if its easier to get then they willl have killed the game at tier 10.

    also mauerbracher selling badly? this surprises no one who looked at it. the tank was a german super heavy which had no speed armor which had very little use and at best an ok gun. meanwhile look at the obj 252 its fast has an ok gun and better armor than the mauerbracher. why would anyone buy the mauerbracher when the obj 252 is the yard stick? its like comparing the jagdtiger 88 to the skorpion g…

    1. Well we don’t know if it even will be the same as the removed one. Or a nerfed version with 4 rounds and 3 rounds on the 15cm gun with a longer reload etc. And with orders staying as is. That is up for debate if it will be “easier”

      Like

      1. i dunno if they can make that tank balanced… i mean its the only tank that was put into the game then was nerfed in nearly every subsequent patch after it was released. (wasnt it about 8 patches in a row it was nerfed?)
        as for the orders that’s a great point actually i completely forgot the orders system. if orders are carried over from the obj260 personal missions then they could probably accumulate enough to completely skip the final stage of the new set of personal missions. the only thing i can think of that they could do would be to have a sort orders v1 for the 260 and then orders v2 for the wtf100 but i think that would kinda defeat the purpose.

        1. In current meta game WTF E100 should be pretty easy to balance. Standard german 12.8 with 490 alpha and 4 shot autoloader with ~45s reload. Considering it has no camo and armor it should not be too hard to outplay.

  5. “New prem tanks sales figures weren’t leaked, but WG isn’t happy about the Mauerbrecher selling so bad”
    Weird, according to wot-news.com (the site, that scans all players profiles), at least on EU Server Mauerbrecher sold same amount as any other premium tier 8 that was only available for such a short time (same as t92 for example, even close to the patton-59, that already was sold multiple times)

  6. Really tired of seeing yet more premiums coming into the game…..there’s just too many of them I think and now it looks like there will be yet more. Not good for the long term.

  7. «There will be a lot of new prem tanks, such as the T42, planned as a VIII tier USA tank»

    these 2 lines worry me, the US TT is the only one that has not received new lines and/or lines reorganization for more than 2 years, it can be said to be the last TT were you go from low to top tiers and there is not “gameplay progression”
    this means that in many cases you have to re-learn a different gameplay from tier to tier aggravated by some vehicles that are clearly UP when uptiered, with A LOT MORE PREMs being added you clearly reduce the options, especially when it comes to vehices that were actually built like the T42
    in my opinion the T42 was an important option with regards to a alternative medium line with higher mobility than the M48 line, with this the options are reduced but still possible

    let’s wait and see, and hope for the best

      1. It’s the turret that would eventually end up on the M47 (top turret for the M46 in-game), if they give it that turret (complete with unhistorical armor buff), it might actually be pretty good.

        That said, I really hate playing tier 8s with <300 alpha, so I'll pass unless they either fix mm or buff tier 8s to have the alpha (and, to a lesser extent, the pen) to actually be competitive in this garbage meta.

        1. either way the Insider confirmed it as a premium, appart from that it will be different than the current tier 8 mediums since it will be a heavier M41 with a bigger gun, expect it to rely heavily on flanking, in theory it should play like a “lighter”-medium with decent flanking capability

  8. “Belgium tanks”

    As a belgian guy myself i don’t know if this is realy good. I mean, we could have the folowing:
    Tier 1: ft 17 =» it is actualy french and already in game
    Tier 2: t15 light tank, english design and build, and would need unhistorical gun/ ammo to work ( had only a hmg, no canon)
    Tier 2/3 t13 tank destroyer, english design and build
    Tier 3/4 amc 35 french designed and build medium
    Tier 5: cati-90 a carden loyd carier with a 90mm gun on top of it.
    Rest: sherman, pershing, walker buldog, jagdpanzerkanone, leopard,…

    I mean,..everything we have is either low tier, completly unknown to everybody and is designed and build in another country,
    Or is high tier, designed and build in another country and most important: already in a tree where it belongs.

    The only thing wich might make a little bit sense is the cati-90, and it is still a UK chasis so,…
    Or: we will see some wheeled vehicles, and the only ones that ever made world fame where ww1

  12. Italy only gets mediums and TDs. Really? Some of the most interesting designs the Italians produced would be low tier light tanks. Italy has enough different designs of light tank to easily have one each from tier I to V, while VI and above might be pushing it. Most of the major Italian car manufacturers had a go at designing early light tanks. Names like Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Maserati. It would be a shame not to model the diversity of early Italian light tank designs, all of which got built and used in North Africa.
