  1. Don’t know how I feel about them putting FV215b (183) HD model onto test server when they dont know if they want the current or original sandbox test armor model

  2. As an owner of ISU130, im swear ISU120 problem is not all buff above. All that need it penetration. How the f*ck a slow, non-armor, tier 8 TD can survive at tier 10 battle with 215mm pen gun ?!!?

    I can deal with old stat, but pls buff ISU130 penetration up to 240mm. Current penetration even worse than stock KV4 and IS3 with 122mm D25T

    1. Welcome to world of Borsig….which has lower shell velocity, less armour, less hp etc etc. The list goes on.
      But noooo….RUSSIA MUST BE BEST!
      Gg WG…gg

      1. Teknokraatti says:

        RHM has amazing camo, full turret and low profile though. It also has a real premium shell that, honestly, has rather OP pen. I would know, I have one and quite like it.

      2. atomicemu says:

        Even after the buff it’s going to be flat-out worse than Ferdinand or Jagdpanther II…

      3. Normal AP : 490 damg/215 pen
        premium AP (APHE): 560 damg/189 pen

        Aim time 2s5
        Accr 0.4

        Yeah sure Isu130 – bezt tier 8 tonk destroyer ever

      4. So it’s the SU100Y gun…..in a tier where it belongs now just add a gold shell and it’s perfectly balanced and probably better than any other non Russian tier td

  3. dieroten says:

    Wait what ?? Why would they want to replace Lorraine 40 t. WTF man, that’s one of my favorite Meds that I enjoy to play on that tier without spamming HEAT like shit…. come on.

    1. abusemtex says:

      Do we know anything about the tier 9 MT replacement?
      Last time I checked it was announced to be a tier 9 reward tonk.

    2. dieroten says:

      But Lorraine 40 t is differrent prototype right ? Then, why would they even bother to replace a tank that have historical accuracy here.?? Why would they don’t remove fake tank like FV215B or VK 45.02 B instead ??

    3. abusemtex says:

      I just checked the stats of the formerly announced tier 9 prem.
      No way this is tonk is going to replace the 40t. That p.o.s. is worse than it’s tier 8 predecessor.
      LeL! Stronk commie logic.

  4. So I dont really understand :
    -this is a regular common-test ?
    -why 9.15.1 and not 9.16 ?
    -how do in-test purshases work ? Like you spend actual money for gold there but you dont have it back on live server ?
    -WG where is HD KV-2 ??

    1. B3RG says:

      Maybe 916 is a Ducati copyright
      Like 106,205,406 are Peugeot brands and the Porsche is called 911 because Peugeot protested against its original name “project 901”

  5. Rita, you write T95 / Chieftain; will be available for supertesters. But this tanks was the latest CW reward. So it can’t be new.

    ISU130, buffs all the way, and a viewrange buff too! Good for the lucky ones to have it.

    Nice to see the chinese top tiers finally get HD models. Looking forward to driving the 121 and the 113 in glorious HD!

    So Lorraine 40t is replaced. That is sad. The 40t was one of my favorite tanks. Perhaps it will return as a premium vehicle as they did with the FV4502? Anyway it will be interesting to drive the mini-bat.

  6. Treadhead1 says:

    I can’t wait for the T-34-1 HD model. I just can’t get myself to play the tank with the upgraded turret because it looks kind of… off in some way (stock turret looks ok but you can’t really use the good guns in that turret you know). But the new model actually seems to fix that.

  7. stormcrow99 says:

    HD tanks! Hooray! T-34-3? No… Instead we have an AT-1…
    M8A1, uhh, M22 Locust… But no Mini-Maus?
    Who the ****** makes this list up???

    1. Also remember when they said arty wasnt a priority in HD modellings and right after that Q&A we started to get arties in HD every patch. And “popular tanks will come first” thus why KV-2 is still not here but a tier 2 TD is

      1. GameGlitch says:

        They later stated that, since they out-source the HD model creation, they don’t necessarily have control over what is finished in what order. They currently just take as many of them as are available.

      2. stormcrow99 says:

        @Gameglitch I am aware of the outsourcing, hence I’m asking who is making the lists. Is someone on that side just going like “OMFG that tonk looks so kawaii let’s do that next” and arbitrarily picking them?

  8. OrigamiChik3n says:

    I’m curious about “Added a sound informing that an allied vehicle was destroyed”.

    What will happen when multiple allied tanks are destroyed at the same time? Will the sound engine crash while trying to playback 3-5 samples at once? Or maybe we will get echo effect: “allied-allied-allied-vehicle-vehicle-vehicle-destroyed-destroyed-destroyed”?

    1. Deathbot3001 says:

      I played it, the sound is like radio static. It took a few times to realize that’s what that noise is.

    2. It’s WG so if the tanks are Russian the game will have a ‘bug’ so that they come back alive with full hp and the next shot it fires is a granted ammo rack….

    1. Infernal969 says:

      No, thanks, I don’t want my STB’s turret turned into shit because STRONK HD REWORKS COMRADE LET’S NERF ARMOR AND NOT GIVE A SHIT DA BUFF IS-3 CYKA BLIN.

      1. hmmm yeah, you’re right…most HD reworks sucks. Like the rusty T34. This tank doesnt look as it would go into battle, it looks like it stood outside a museum for 70 years…and most HD models looked like covered in sugar powder.
        But opn the other hand…japanese HD med tanks look nice.

  9. Infernal969 says:

    lol, does that Bat.-Châtillon 25 t AP still have worse stats than the 13 90?
    If so, well done WG, you clearly know how to balance the game.

  10. Landric says:

    If the HD 113 from the sandbox is coming into the game with the current 113 mobility and gun stats, the E5 is about to lose its throne.

  11. still can’t understand why they will remove the Lorraine 40t instead of returning it to tier 8 as it was before, I know that it was considered OP back then but we have seen how french tanks have suffered with the years and right know the Lorraine was a “skill” tank at tier 9, maybe it would work as a tier 8 unless they want to make it a premium (since they really made a mistake with the CDC since it was a TD and they tried to make it work as a medium, solution: preferential matchmaking)

    if they do make the Lorraine a premium it has to be given for free to those who lost it first at tier 8 and now at tier 9, it’s just too much

    1. dieroten says:

      Lol too much free stuff that already given by WG…… But anyway lorraine is good at OP hands. I just personally unlock the tank 2 weeks ago and I love it because it’s have some insane mobility and more over it’s got good aim time and decent dispersion. Then why would they’ll remove it with worse tank….

  12. Anonymous says:

    Oh damn, my beloved FV304 gets nerfed a bit further. HD model is bigger, so the camouflage is a bit worse. But they put the armor from 25 each side down to 14 each side and the hull traverse speed from 27 down to 26,53. (all numbers with my trained crew)

  13. “Payments on the test server will be added.”

    The contrary is actually the case. Seems to be a mistranslation of the Russian CT news:
    “Платежи на тестовый сервер не производятся.”

    “Payments to Test Server are NOT executed.”

  14. _Ronin says:

    *logs in on test server*
    *looks at BC 25t AP in garage*

    4 crew members? Really, WTF WG? way to break a great line….The tank itself looks decend, but with a 4th crew member and nerfed reload? Could you bloody not?!

  15. siralexice says:

    I do not beta test for free WG’s games. They are making a lot of money from our free work.
    Even if beta testers would help make the game better, they should not do it for free.
    WG is earning real money from the hard work of the gamers doing the beta test.
