Supertest: Tier IX Special Tank Speculation

From our friends at rykoszet (who in turn reposted from wotexpress):

„Birds from Supertest chirp: “probably in the middle of May we will start testing the prize tank for one of the events that will take place this year, IX tier machine. You must be patient. “

It will probably be the award for the Frontline, because the ranked battles are still ahead. There is no information about the vehicle itself, except that it will be 95% special tank (not premium!) … The tank is completely new.”

  1. “The tank is completely new.” So neither the SU-122-54 nor the Tier IX Chinese TD that is apparently in the game files. Sounds good to me. And it will not be a premium tank, i.e. it won’t make extra credits. No surprises there. Not sure about the Emil 1951, though … will that be a ‘special tank’ or a genuine premium tank?

  2. Well i hope that it will be a very good tank (hoping for a med or a fast heavy of some sorts) but not op, already at prestige 5 so 5 more to go for me 😀

    1. Why, WG clearly said they don’t wanna me tier 9 prems, it will be very bad for the game and tier 8 prems would be irelevant…

    2. I read in some Q&A or other that Wargaming has ruled out releasing true Tier IX premiums, and I can’t say I blame them – to be fair, I would do the same if I were in their shoes, as this would create a whole new situation, with loads of implications, notably for Tier VIII premiums, which are an important source of income for WG.

      Having said that, perhaps they will start thinking about Tier IX premiums in earnest if they find that the market for Tier VIII premiums is saturated and fewer and fewer people buy them …

  4. I think they should let the “special” tanks earn more credits than tech tree tanks but the amount should be lower than premium tanks. So if tier 8 premiums get say a 10% credit boost, then a tier 8 “special” tank could only get a 5% or 2.5% credit boost.

            1. It’s def not the 777v2 because that is a tier 10 also, from what WG said it’s going to be a new tank, 777v2 is not a new tank

                1. Hmm just saw the news on the forum with the 777v2 as tier 9 going on supertest, but nothing yet if this tank will be the one for FL or ranked, hmm..
