May I know when 5.5 will be released?

I have the same question, maintenance was yesterday, and WG always has a maintenance right before updates so I'm guessing there's a bug or an issue

Yesterday's maintenance was about a bug into mad games event. Some players mentioned that they could continue the event after 10 days, so, most likely this is what WG fixed. 

 

Hopefully 5.5 will not be released next coming week ...


Thank you for removing timers and spare parts, now please do the same with Military Honor !

Why don’t you look after the players who have been playing this game for some time, in the same way you are looking after new players, the pay a lot more than one off new players

Gravedigger needs buff, in Mad games it ok tank because of abilities. In normal game mode it cant do anything. 6 shots and mostly half dont pen, gun dep is so bad if you look at turret and space under the durret for gun to move, pen is so bad need to spam APCR, and at last that tank is for supposed to be rammer but nope.

The Gravedigger need nerfing not a buff. I have seen Gravediggers take apart Tiger II’s and other heavies from the front so the pen thing is a crock of crap. It’s also hard to pen the Gravedigger  from the front and I have seen it bounce a lot of side shots.  WG have introduced tanks which are effectively aimed at highs spending kids so the tanks are given an edge. I don’t mind tanks like the Lorraine or Nameless/Edelweiss but to stick a tank like the Gravedigger straight into the game was wrong in my op. Remember the T49 with the missile? This should have been the same. Gravedigger and the Scavenger for the event only. Let the rich boys play for a while and then get back to normal.

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."

 

Sure. For example, there are two same tier tanks. One of them (tank A) stays in tech tree, second (tank B) becomes collectible. If player researches tank B and proceeds towards tech tree without researching previous vehicles, he'll get those tanks after 5.5 release. Long story short - there won't be blanks in tech trees.

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

 

Nope, if you researched everything, it won't affect you.

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.

 

No, these tanks won't be available for free purchase. Event's, part-time and special offers are possible, but not in-game store.

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!

 

Tier 1 vehicles will be removed completely. Other vehicles mentioned in the news will be collectible. If you want to keep them in future you can buy them before 5.5 comes out.

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?

 

Yes.

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 those tanks before 5.5 release. This is why we announce update earlier than usually - you can get prepared for update.

Dear WG,

 

I hope there will be a balance update in 5.5. And if so, here are my suggestions

T26E4 Super Pershing. 

HP from 1400 to 1500. Because the normal Pershing has more health than the Super Pershing. That´s unfair because the Super Pershing is made to be a stronger version.

Engine power from 550 to 650. Because the Super Pershing is by far the slowest medium in tier 8. It is true that it´s slower than the normal Pershing but not too slow like it is right now. It just can not help other mediums because it´s to slow to get somewhere at the right moment.

 

FCM 50 T.

View Range: buff with +20%. It was designed to have a superb view range. But in Blitz it has one of the worst view ranges from all the other medium tanks in tier 8.

Engine power: 1000 to 1150. In WOT it has a 1250 engine power with gives the FCM a option to travel faster around the map for supporting. It should have the same ability in WOTB too.

Attachment: Give the FCM 50 T the antenna's which it has in WOT too. 

 

Thank you for reading WG. 

 

Greetings,

Jesse

Ok. How much earlier? Do we get discounts to buy slots/tanks before the update? Would be very welcome.

I even now dont understand about this sentence "To maintain continuity in the Tech tree, vehicles that haven't been previously reaserched may be added to your account. Each vehicle will come with a slot in the Garage."

 

Please answer this questions:

If i have researched Pz. IV trough the Pz. IV D, will the Pz. 38 nA be added to my accound without researching it?

If i researched for example Churchill GC will i get him in update or i need also to buy it?

Will i get garage slot for collectable tank if i have it in garage?

Will i get garage slot if i only have it researched and in update i get the tank?

What it means is this:

 

Example:

 

If you have the AT 7 in your garage, and you used the Churchill Gun Carrier to research the AT 7, and you got to the Churchill Gun Carrier by researching it on the Churchill I, and you haven’t researched or played the AT 8 or any of the previous British TD’s, then you will get them all added to your garage for free.  (Except the UC 2-pdr and the Valentine AT, which are becoming collector’s tanks.)

 

Why?  

 

Because under the new system, the AT 7 can only be researched through the AT 8, because the Churchill Gun Carrier is becoming a collector’s tank.  And you can’t have a Tier VII tank in your garage without having researched the earlier tanks in the line, otherwise the game will get confused and crash.  

 

So WG have to give you the Alecto, the AT 2, and the AT 8 for free (and all fully researched), along with free garage slots to hold them.

 

The same principle will apply to any tank that previously allowed you to change lines, if that tank is becoming a collector’s tank, and you haven’t played the alternative route to the next tank in the line.

 

Hope that explains things better.

So we got a 15-slot offer for 2500 gold. Thanks.

 

How about a smaller offer for those who can't afford to buy that much? Like 5-10 slots for 800-1500 gold.
