    1. doubt it since we alrdy have a t55a ingame, its probably going to be a tier 8 that has the same playstyle as the t50 and the tvp, 3/4 shell autoloader, probably 240 alpha


        1. Well, that tank will make Grille 15 pointless, and by far its one of the weakest tier X TD. SU taran will have fully traversable turret with way better gun, so yea,


      1. It was more of a sarcastic remark, but whatever.

        They will probably give us 4-5 female crewmembers for free and 5 garage slots.


        1. Haha you’re being too generous, this is WG we’re talking about. We’ll probably get a free tier 3 tank and 250 gold, though Ive been here since 2011 so it’ll be smaller

    1. wont work mate!

      hardly anyone left playing WOT regular with 5 years never mind 8 years of playing, sorry but true

      more like anyone with 3+ years still playing WOT regularly is now ‘classed’ as Old player, sad state of WOT today

      Still interesting cannot wait for December, and also full Gold refunds on PMM tanks!
      ~ those that got the Type 59 in last Decembers €59 Xmas Box’s will be getting a lot of cash back then

    1. They should just make it bigger to reflect the original planned size, take away the OP camo after shooting, maybe give it some minor buffs to other stats and it will be fine.


      1. If they CANNOT Improve it! then a FULL GOLD refund, its there in black and white

        says nothing about nerfing it down anywhere, WG don’t nerf Premiums anymore remember very bad for Premium Shop sales.

        and again mate ~
        E25 its a T7 PMM
        so not in any of WG plans, just the Tier 8 PMM Tanks WG talking about this December


        1. But they are talking about rebalancing preferential MM tanks (“Pref MM tanks who can’t be rebalanced”), not improving them. Also technically reworking it is improving the health of the game. The Tier V-VII improvement is referring to regular premiums and tech tree tanks.

          Although I haven’t played with it or the lefh in ages I hope WG doesn’t just start removing them in the future. I would rather see them balance them properly and you could either keep it or ask for a refund like with the Superpershing.

          Yeah, currently they are busy with the Tier VIII tanks but in the future they will start working on the lower tiers as well.


  1. Oh look , possible screwing to the Preff MM tanks .. And They say there Happy with the Grill .I. … Stole my WT and give us a crap TD in it’s stead . No Turret to speak of then nerfed it after they put it out . But sure can dish out the preem tanks and add more Russian tanks ….


    1. WTF100 needed to go. Sure, nowadays it doesn’t seem that bad, but back then it was broken beyong fixing. And Grille turned out to be OP as shit, so they rightfully nerfed it. It just got powercreeped quite a lot, which is sad.


  2. “Pref MM tanks who can’t be rebalanced will be refunded fully in gold”

    No actualy WG if you take away what I paid for I kinda want my money back. I didnt buy gold, I bought a tank. And since most premiums nowadays are online-exclusive I don’t give a flying fuck about in-game gold. Unless you finaly decide to have an in-game premium shop for gold.

    But I’m guessing they dont want an in-game premium shop because too many people have tons of gold accumulated from stupid bundles they made over the years filled with gold people do not want. Or situations like these where they say “dont worry we’ll give you gold”.

    I cant use the gold. I dont want the gold. I didnt buy the gold. So dont give me gold. Let me keep my stuff or give me my money back, or give me actual options as a refund like access to internet-exclusive tanks.

    1. You have not read the license agreement … Once you spend your money you have no way to recover it … The goods in your account do not belong to you, the fact that wg decides to return the value in gold is an act of good faith…


      1. WG may not be legally required to give real money refunds, but that doesn’t mean it’s not still the right thing to do. This is a question of ethics, not legality.


  3. “Yes, tier V to VII tanks changes are coming (including T67). Stats will be revised (improved)”

    sure thing, improve the T67 – it needs more DPM and better mobility. *evil laughter*

    tier 5 to 7 surely need a reblancing, but especially the T67 is one of the last vehicles (tank just does not fit with that glass cannon), that needs improvements, IMHO. I love mine and working in the 3rd MoE right now, but playing this little terror-beetle with equipment, cola and a skilled crew is just pure sealclubbing sometimes.


  4. WG still refusing to admit the fixed MM model is flawed and disliked is just sad, because that is what will eventually lead to pref MM tanks being ‘impossible to balance’ (and the day it does happen I expect a shitstorm in the official forums).

    A new Czech premium is great news though. Here’s hoping it will be something good and worth its pricetag.

  5. So the devs are happy with the Grille 15 … the German Tier X TD with the lowest winrate. I can see why … it fits in nicely with the Leopard 1 and the Rheinmetall Panzerwagen, each the lowest Tier X of their class. Now all that remains to do is to nerf the rest of the German Tier X and the devs will be *really* happy, right?

    I wish I could have a talk to one these devs. I would love to hear his explanation why I should spend a single cent more on the bullshit this game has become.

    Well Wargaming better not sell any of these pref MM tanks in the near future for real money if they planned to remove them from the game. SOUND LIKE A RUSSIAN REFUND TO ME!

    From what I have read you can contest, through your credit card company or PayPal, within one year the purchase and get a monetary refund from Wargaming if the item you purchased is not what was advertised or was changed from what was advertised. However you risk the chance that Wargaming will shut down your account.

  7. «The T-103 USSR premium of VIII tier will appear next year. The devs have a cunning plan (supposedly a new line leading to the Taran according to rumors)»

    it’s not much but I’ve called it when they reworked the soviet TT a few months ago (when they introduced and/or replaced a bunch of Tier 10’s)

    my other predicions for the Soviet TT are:

    »»»the long rumored light TD line based on the ASU designs (yeah, they want their own Soviet E-25s):
    don’t know what they could have for tier 10 (the last time I saw a proposal for it was a few years ago) but most likely a TD based on a medium tank, basically something with mobility and some stealth (what happened to that tier 9 TD based on a T-54?)

    »»»multi-turreted/Super-heavy tank line:
    we all know it’s cuming, tat’s the reason they are working to implement a proper multi-turret/multi-gun mecahnism, it’s obviously not because of the French Super-heavies
