Changes to Low-Tier Vehicles

 

We continue to work with newcomers and, following the gradual unlocking of content and introduction of mixed-type battles and ribbons, we plan to rework Tier I–VII vehicles. In the upcoming Update 5.5, researching vehicles in the Tech Tree will become much easier, unnecessary modules will be removed, and some vehicles will be given Collector vehicle status.

Three German Giants

 

In Update 5.5, we'll put the German heavy vehicles' Tech Tree in order and replenish it with three Tier VIII-X tanks. A new Tier X tank VK 72.01 (K) with rear placement of the turret will take the place of the Maus and become a logical continuation of the VK 45.02 B, which has a similar configuration. Meanwhile, the Maus will head a new branch consisting of its previous projects: the VK 100.01 (P) and Mäuschen.

Update 5.5

 

Commanders, get ready to meet the new update on November 13! In Update 5.5, we added new German vehicles and camouflages, increased profitability in rating battles, and preserved the Wasteland map in regular battles. We also reworked more than 60 vehicles and improved the gameplay of low-tier vehicles.

I do not understand the below sentence from the news, could you please explain it?

 

"To maintain continuity in the Tech Tree, vehicles that haven’t been previously researched may be added to your account. Each vehicle will come with a slot in the Garage."

Discount on garage slots could be nice before 5.5 hits us. I have been selling my tanks 4 pr. day for past 3 days, to get space for tanks being removed.

 

And I have the same question as above. Does it apply in any way, if you have all tanks researched?

Hello. I am french and i have a question about the new version. All tank i have research and that i can buy to play again (if i want) will disappear?
T1 and others that i have try and come to 100% could be buy with gold? It s unfair! Let us tank that we have research (and rebuyable) and give new players the new trees.
Your proposition is like erasing our past in wot!

good question, I have the same one! plus I think that there should be a buff in terms of reload speed in T57 heavy, its ridiculously high to meet the new german tanks that enter the game in 5.5

Could WG please clarify what is happening to the Tier VI American light tank, the T37? 

 

It was originally planned to become a collector's vehicle in the 5.1 Supertest, along with the T21.  The M24 Chaffee is confirmed as being moved from Tier V to Tier VI.

 

Does this mean that there will still be 2 American light tanks at Tier VI in the Update 5.5 tech tree?  The Chaffee AND the T37?

Can we please have some clarity on what is happening to tanks being removed from the tech tree that we have researched and owned but have since sold? Will we get all these as collector's tanks with free garage slots, or do I have to buy back any that I want to keep before update 5.5 kicks in?

You have to buy them back BEFORE Update 5.5.

Another complete wargaming fiasco.... they've got incompetence down to a fine art.

So will all the tanks that are being made collector's tanks all be available to buy with gold? Including the ones you could previously only win in special events?  I wish they'd explain things better.

My bet is the update will be in three days. They will hope that everyone sells thier "collectable" tanks for gold to get the Gravedigger.That will remove loads from the game in one fell swoop.

Good choice, if you really do this to permit to newbies a better appropriation of the game mechanics.

God choice to not delete the tanks we have in our hangars but transform them to premiums.

 

I regret you not do it with the tiers 1 because if i understand, you will just erase them like you did for Mark 1. 


I suppose, you will be able to commercialize them in events or in hangar as premiums and I hope you will rebalance them too to permit collectors to continue to play them.

This point is important, because much tanks like Tankenstein, which was OP when you sold it the first time, is now unplayable now with the whole tanks sold out after him.

Have a nice day.
I wait this update with interest :)

Ich möchte gerne von meinem PZ.35t die 2cm Flak 38 behalten und andere Waffen und Panzer auch. Ich habe für diese Kanone Forschungspunkte gesammelt und dann behalte ich diese auch.

Yes all the time to get this tank to 100% was lost. Could you explain what are the tank i can get free? I must buy all in three days while i could sold and buy some when i would. Its unfair!

You want just sell garage place and make money. You have no consideration for your players. I think this will be probably the last time of playing on wot in this futur months.
