While i like seeing the brit tree get some love am i the only one that feels this game is getting really TD centric?   Might be just me but sure feels that way.  Now I brawl more TDs than meds.  And some do it better than meds do.

Disagree.  The Chinese TDs easily explained - it's their TD line.  The Brit TDs - more diversity.  WOTB TD centric, not the least.  As for any individual wagon's performance that is encountered in game, regardless of vehicle type, it comes down to the skill of the player (then add on provisions etc and crew skills).  That and MM, RNG lol.  Plus if you have over 5000 battles or are a long term player you disadvantaged since 5.5 lol.

 

Huzzah!

And educational indeed. 

 

 

​I guess u ever to those Unis educating the commoners of the belows...

i would rather say that grinding from tier 1-5 was educational in teaching both a bit of history, and some aspects of those lines, or some peculiar playstyles. 

 

In any any case I miss it, it was always interesting and special.

Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

The Firefly is solo and on pc the tds are linked to it.

Challenger - charioteer and fv4004 follow like pc.

The charioteer and fv4004 have been confirmed on facebook.

So this section I think is very plausible.

 

Then there is two possibilities for tierX

1. Badger - Fv215-183 

2. FV215-183 and FV4005

Option 1 is the best as its more logical yet WG hasnt allowed the transition like when the german tanks changed.

Option 2 will see two 183mm tds in the game derping everything and cause bulk complaints.

I really dont want to see tierx become a campfest due to influx of 183guns

Fake due to wrong layout or tanks shown? Hmm :popcorn:

What about swapping the rows and having the two td lines next to each other.

This will allow the tech tree transition period.

so at2 > badger

     Crusader [ Firefly > 183

                       Cromwell > fv4202

    Churchill > fv215b

 

We lost valentine from tech tree so acher and achilles are unlikely unless premium/collector tanks.

In the past i used to see 1 or 2 TD's per side per game that was one thing, Now i frequently have games with 3 or even 4 TD's in them when you consider that now WG matches vehicle types that would indicate that there are many more TDs rolling around than in the past.   This is what i mean by TD centric.

 

No idea what you are going on about vehicle type and provisions, you lost me there.

Ah yes, British td line of desperation. Desperate as in putting the biggest guns in poorly suited frames just to have a fighting chance against heavily armored Nazi and Soviet armor because there was nothing they could put up against them in time. Thank god neither did Allies go with Churchills Operation Unthinkable or try anything fancy until Conqueror and M103 came out. It really wouldnt have been pretty had it been the other way around. Looking forward to this line particularly to the FV 4004.

The adding of provisions to your wagon, opening up equipment slots and the more advanced your crew skills are (especially if maxed out) will give you an advantage every time.  That's what I meant.

 

I don't notice an increase of TDs motoring about to be honest.  Yes I occasionally see games where there are 2-3 TDs per team but then I see games where there are 3-4 heavies or lights per team far more often.

Looking at the Picts that were linked, moderately interested, but it does really depend on WG not using a stupid price for these!

Using gold might just be possible, but would really like WG to NOT fit some stupid low dmg, inaccurate not penning typical WG version of any British gun!

It's a new tech tree line, so no price

All of them real, but some of them only full size wooden mockups or technical drawings.

u are ruining my hopes of a free drunken Connor thing. 

Plus for many years I was so much anticipating that day when the entire server is grinding that line and all driving backwards at the same time. 

 

Madness !

I vote for Badger as the new end of the AT line, the FV4005 Stage II as the end of the new Firefly line, and the original FV215b (183) as a collector's tank (with seriously nerfed rate of fire to make the new FV4005 Stage II the more desirable tank, despite the latter's monstrous HE magnet paper turret and horrendous camo rating).

Ok, looking for an easily understandable brief for ex thick as mince squaddie here.  I know some of it is guestimation but, what TDs are we most likely looking at, where in the tech tree etc ?  Plenty of XP on all my TDs but should I be smashing my Firefly on the fields of Blitz to get that XP?  Where is Fugit the Int Offr?  Lol.
