    Ok but what do they mean if adding the Strv S1?
    Is already in the game client and can be seen in the compare tab.

    If it go on sale I’m getting my hands on it!

    Seriously? Adding back the Panther/M10 when it was specifically removed because of the preferential matchmaking it has? Of course I’m salty because I won’t be a special little flower that has one of them but at the same time it’s purely a cashgrab because they made it competitive (i mean it was fine before it’s just that the skillcap was significantly higher) so people will buy a somewhat cheap crewtrainer. Don’t really like the direction where WG is going (also referring to better premium tanks nowadays).

    And none of those tanks is worth jack shit against Skorpions, Libertes, Patriots and Defenders.
    Well, unless you are a wallet warrior, WG’s favourite kind of shitter.

      The vk 4503 is a pretty good tank for its tier, it is a tiger 1 with better gun handling and angled armor with the same thickness resulting in better effective armor
      The Panther m10 has pref mm and just received enormous buffs.

      Maybe it’s because 3 of them are tier 7s and only tier 8 has preferential matchmaking you muppet lol
      Amount of blind hate coming from this community is disturbing.

        Against regular tier 8s having 175-200 pen gives you a fighting chance. Against Patriots, Defenders and Libertes it makes you a cannon fodder. Let’s not even start with bushwankers in their Skorpions. Boy, what a great purchase that would be.

        Sir, weakspot on Liberte has 60mm AFAIK. Patriot has worse lower plate than is3, and defender has such a pathetic gun that it deserves that immunity for 175 mm guns. Unless they highroll ofc because everything with 210 pen gets right trough. Also, noticed some really weird tracking +damage shots on it at very bullshit angle. And Skorpions masterbaiting in Bush are just as annoying as any other TS masterbaiting in Bush. Except they have terrible camo, are easy to hit and have really wanky gun that has aspirations of being an arty. 0.28 accuracy my ass.

      Shouldnt you be happy instead, if there were no “Walletwarriors” as you nicely call them, there would be no money to fund all the people making the game, i.e no game for you to play.
      Think a bit before you throw crap at others…

      I’d also like to add that these so-called “wallet warriors” are the people who keep this game free for people who don’t want to (or can’t) spend a penny on their games. Never understood the blind hate towards people who choose to spend their money on a game they like.

    Guys I don’t think they will be on sell. They will be up for comparing vehicles, if this is true then more premium tanks will be available to display and we will likely see more in the weeks to come.

    Wasn’t Panther/M10 removed from the tech tree because it had preferential match making? If it’s returned in it’s former state, it would go against WG policy “no more tanks with preferential MM” (of course, WG breaking their promise is hardly surprising). Stripping it off the preferential MM on the other hand would go against “not nerfing premium tanks” and “we would be forced to compensate players if we do”.

    ‘Adjusted the 907 armor parameters’ ? I’ve been playing quite a bit since it became HD because the armor got a lot more reliable in my opinion. Could one of the Status Report authors look further into this please?

    1. The size of ammo rack module was decreased (don’t confuse with number of shells) and the armor of the side was improved due to the change of the armor angle.

      It looks like we got another small buff to the tank.

    Normally I’d hold my tongue and I’ve only ever made a few replies on this blog but as a tank collector this is pretty aggravating, I’ve been slowly building up a nice collection of tanks on my account over time and the only ones I truly lack are the founders pack tanks and the Type 59.

    I just find this to be quite insulting, because there seems to be a huge double standard going on, if they’re truly going to do this and start pissing off us collectors then they shouldn’t mind pissing off people by releasing a Type 59 for a 1 day sale.

    It just sucks that some “collector” tanks are handed out like candy but not all those other tanks, because if we released those tanks people would get mad at us.
