Insider's view of MMO game development
more soviet tanks? are they going to be impenetrable fortresses too?
Hm, its gonna bounce a lot i see...stil BL9, hm, soviet bias again, OP soviet tanks again..mind as well give it S70.
BL-9 huh?Well, that's probably not a bad bargain, it's more accurate than most other heavy Soviet guns.I'll take it.
overlord will IS6 repleace KV5 ? or soviet would have 2 8 tier premium tanks?
When? I am about to get enough money for the KV 5 but I will hold for this one. Just need to know when it's going to be released. Please...
is that a jumbo inbetween? :X heard it will come
IS-6/Object252 not premium tankA bit interesting when the "IS-6" is in lower tier than IS-4 (at full tech tree)
There is no release date yet, and you all with the soviet bias nonsense are just full of lulz.
Hmm, this is weird... why would you be showing off a tank that won't make it into a patch for a while? We don't know anything about the Jumbo Sherman, M103, T110 or any idea of what the stats of the tier 5 lights are. Not that I don't mind pictures of new tanks, but maybe show us ones that will hit the game before 2012 :-)
will this new OP russian tank have the same credit making abilities that the other gold tanks USED TO HAVE untill you RAISED THE PRICE and then NERFED
Had the Is 6 2 kinds of cannons? The cannon in the last picture has an other end as the others.^^
BL9=10.5 on the Lowe, so they should be even.PS, it has less armor than the lowe, but at a steeper angle. I would expect them to perform at about the same level. Now we just need to wait for when the T34 becomes a prem, and then you'll have some pretty heavy tier 8 contenders...
Looks pretty nice, any rough idea of a price range?
nice armor,nice gun,price should be 15000gold
LOOK its a russian OP tank of course it will make it in they will have more shit in this game than any other line in it because the devs are russian pricks
why is everyone bitching about more soviet tanks? we have less tanks than the rest of the races since they've each gotten their individual updates, and I've had to wait so damn long for my soviet line updates that I've stopped paying for premium.
I wish a a MEDIUM TANK, tier 8 with good ablities as a premium tank. Thx! Heavy tanks are boring.GreetzAxel_Foley
All people that whine about soviets are OP tanks are americans. Dont get frustrated beacause 1 game is not about you. The game rules and your tanks suck so get used to it.
oh and the hating starts.... lolreminder that event though it is russian you dont have to grind for it ANYONE can get it.
I'll buy one. Looks cool. Better looking than the Lowe.
no love for the americans
I am not American, and Russian tanks are OP.
Does it mean that idea from full tech tree below gone?http://statcdn.worldoftanks.eu/comeu_v2_110412_release/uploads/ussr__full%28eng%29.jpg
oh again dont add new tanks at the game pls,change the gamestyle graphic environment pls look at the video i want to play like thishttp://www.gametrailers.com/video/exclusive-gameplay-red-orchestra/719541
Już widzę główny słaby punkt:P, a ogólnie jestem przeciwny czołgom premium!
You guys make me sick. There is no russian bias evident in this. The armor is actually rather lame and I'd imagine mobility is average, so all you're left with is a tank slightly worse than the IS-3, which already loses to the King Tiger and T32.
Thought this was gonna be a normal credit purchased Tank that was replacing the IS4 in Tier 9 ?
Look at all the scrubs hating
I'm guessing the tech tree is more of a guide as to where the Dev's are headed. When they get a new idea (good or bad depending on how you look at it) they try to incorporate it in the game.Overall I enjoy the game, although there are a few other things I would like to see changed/fixed.
looks pretty nice, but where is the tier 8 USA heavy premium?
this tank, maybe the next warrior.XD
Stop bitching about the SOviet tanks.. The American tanks are way better than they should be just to balance stuff out.. son in the words of Ahnold... STOP WHINING!!!
So the IS-6 will have a better gun than IRL. Than you should increase the Löwe front to 140mm according to IRL stathttp://ww2drawings.jexiste.fr/Files/1-Vehicles/Axis/1-Germany/03-sPanzers/PzKpfw7-Lowe/PzKpfw7-Schwere.htm
this will be high priced like the Lowe is now?
Just fix and balance overpowered SPGs instead of new content...
Premium tanks are ridiculous I cant believe how many people are willing to drop 30 bucks on a Lowe. They cost more then a full-on DLC for most games.
I am not American either, Soviet tanks are OP.
For people who say this is OP. it is gonna be just like the Lowe. only not as good. Think about it. the Lowe has a gun better than the Tiger 2 with worse armor. this will probably be around the same only with the same gun as the IS-3 and worse armor. so hey no big deal. Premium tanks are easier to kill than normal tanks. (they have become competitive as of late) but they still suffer from S.H.T.T.S (people with low skill driving a high tier tank)
Then there is some model fuck-up. Bl-9 is only in the last screen, others have the 122mm IS-2 gun.
The only thing I have a problem with in this game is the Fog of war. It needs to be removed to make it more realistic. I hate so much that a tank will vanish from sight from 200 to 300 meters away. oh and the American tanks do rock you just have to use different tactics than just barging in with an IS or a Lowe and blowing sh1t up meanwhile having rounds constantly bouncing off your tank..
BL-9?wasn´t it supposed to be the D-30T (a D-25T with higher RoF)?
The Bl-9 is a 122mm... That is whats on my Is-3
Q: I can't understand, when this tank Object252, is Premium, so whats the Full TechTree's tier9 soviet HTank?http://statcdn.worldoftanks.eu/comeu_v6/uploads/eu_art/tank_trees/ussr__full_eu.jpgIt's same normal and premium? Or what?

I think more tanks are good, but I would rather see more completion of the full tech trees than another premium tank. I already purchased an expensive premium. I bought the best one that you offered. Now you are offering another one that I probably would like better than the one I have but there is no reason for me to buy it since I already have a money maker.That being said, and not wanting to come off as being negative, I'm glad to see that the content of this game is steadily increasing. Like I said in my opening sentence, more tanks are good.
"Just fix and balance overpowered SPGs instead of new content... "Really? It's not the SPG's blowing me up that is getting boring, it's the single-serving battle type that's wearing thin imo.http://gankalicious.blogspot.com/2011/08/15-v-15-has-got-to-goand-other-musings.html
SPGS are not, nor have they ever been the problem. The problem is heavy tanks having far more in game impact then they actually should. SPG's are the ONLY thing that keep this from becoming world of heavy tanks.
I don't really think Russian tanks are overpowered. I would say the e-75 is way greater beast than eg. is-4. Artillery seems to do same kind of damage... Where's the problem?

"KruppZ said...I don't really think Russian tanks are overpowered. I would say the e-75 is way greater beast than eg. is-4."firstname.lastname@example.org
The E-75 is hardly greater than the IS-4. And this new Russian Tier 8 will be even better than the Lowe. If it gets the BL-9, with the penetration and damage it has now, will be a far greater credit earner then the Lowe.Also, still waiting on the M103. You know, the part of any nation's tank tree at the tier that actually requires attention?
Q: did you also change something on the Tiger 2 last patch?
Saw someone on here say something about the Russian tank having a better gun that it had in real life. The King Tiger only used the 88mm. Though longer and more powerful than the Tiger VI, it's still an 88mm, not the 105mm they give it in the game. They do all of this to balance stuff out. Because if they only made tanks that were actually around and made in WW2, the Tigers would rule. They had a goddamn kill ratio of 12:1. The only bad thing about em was rushed production and they were time consuming to make, which led to them breaking down a lot because they didn't have time to thoroughly test the design for flaws.
I sure hope you devs are putting focus on getting the M103 into the next patch with or without the T110. I get the feeling that if its going to take till the end of the year to get it you're going to lose a lot of players (including me) to the new upcomming games such as BF3, RO2 etc...

T-10 is gonna be the Tier 9 heavy that the 252 was supposed to be.
I'm so tired of people complaing about soviet tanks, suck it up and play. Of course they are overpowered when you go up against an is7 in a tier 5, Its just the WoT foodchain so live with it. The only way these ignorant complainers will be happy is if they drive a maus against a whole team of ms-1's. So please stop spamming good blog discussions because you got killed by another tank that happened to be russian, i bet you get killed by american and german just as much but your just to ignorant and self centered to admit it.

It's just another excuse to delay the M103 and T110 that are apperently never coming. I doubt they are even modelled yet....
Only skilled players stay with German tree. The unskilled ones leave after they recognize how tough they are to play. Don't come with stupid excuse of win ratio! Everybody knows a lot weak players go for Russian, so that is dropping the win ratio by a huge margin. The comparison IS4 and t34 is a joke. T34 is one of the tanks where you really need skills, but the IS4 is OP easy mode. What an idiot.
@"Only skilled players stay with German tree. The unskilled ones leave after they recognize how tough they are to play"That's why over 60% of players play German, right? Because more than 60% of the players are really skilled. Now, i've been playing WoT long enough to know that's not true at all.
@It's just another excuse to delay the M103 and T110 that are apperently never coming. I doubt they are even modelled yet..http://forum.worldoftanks.eu/index.php?app=core&module=attach§ion=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=12253You'd be surprised. That picture's 4 months old btw.

IS-4 is easy mode, everyone knows it. US and German tanks do require far more skill. I'm guessing this tank will be their replacement for the Lowe, to get everyone to buy one, giving them another cash infusion just like when the Lowe came out. Unfortunately for them, at this point, if they came out with the goddamn Millenium Falcon as a tank, I wouldn't spend a dime on it XD

I have on most higher tier German tanks >55% win rate and with my Russian tanks I do not get >50%. People should stop talking about:- Russian tanks are OP- German players are more skilledBecause both is simply not true. The game is relatively well balanced and fun.
Hey Overlord! Thanks for posting again same pictures that are we could seen a month ago on another site and not telling anything what people may actually want to know!

STFU yourself, retard.The KV-5 is now the better money maker.It's cheaper to afford, it does not face T10 tanks therefor increasing it's chances for survival and to achieve a win.The Löwe is more and more facing T9-10, reducing it's moneymaking ability by more facing stronger opponents and it's winning chances are less. Also the maintenance cost are higher.The IS-6 will outperform the Löwe and they will find a lousy excuse to make it cheaper in Gold than the Löwe.
The Lowe makes more money -because of it's gun and the tanks it faces-. It is, has been, and always will be on average a better credit earner then a KV-5.
Mathematically yes, but unfortunately your opponents shoot back, so in reality absolutely no.It's not, because it dies much faster than the KV-5, thanks to facing 4-6 T9/10 tanks in one match now. Also your win/loss ratio will get very bad. Enemies of lower tier are a safer income and a better win chance.
Overlord will Wargaming be demo'ing WoT at the Eurogamer expo in London. You are listed as supporting the show but not as having the game playable on the floor.
how much it will cost? like the lowe?
The IS-6 is a tier 8 heavy with total shit armor and hasn't been released yet, yet people are complaining about "ZOMG RUSSIAN BIAS" already.Let me tell you a thing or two about "OP Russian tanks"Its not a rule. A rule that consists almost entirely of exceptions is not a rule at all. The KV-3 and IS-4 are the only two can really be called OP to any serious extent. Take a look at the T-44 for example. If you're in a Panther II or a Pershing, and you're having trouble with enemy T-44's, its not the biased Russian devs who are the problem. It's you. The entire Soviet medium tank tree up until the T-54 is completely mediocre. The T-54 is itself easily the most overrated tank in the entire game. I previously said the IS-4 was. I retract such statement. The T-54 definitely has it beat as being over hyped. If you're in an E-50 or Patton and you're having trouble with enemy T-54's the problem, again, is [probably] you.Anyway, the Soviet TD's are completely on par with their opponents, the Jagdpanzer IV is just shit and the Jagdtiger has serious issues. The KV-2 is itself completely overrated and is rather easily destroyed by any other [non-premium] tier 5 in the entire game. The IS is clumsy as fuck, and the IS-3 and IS-7 are too poorly protected to be OP. Oh and LMAO at the person claiming the KV-5 to be an example of bias.
+++ for this guy above me
Why are she screenshots always so dark?
Obj. 252 is not tier 9 ?then which one gonna replace IS-4?
Not like: it looks like a Pz3/4 snuck into bed with an IS-3.
Oh, I might as well setup direct debit with WoT from my checking account. Take my money, gimme now please
To the guy who said the Loweis the better credit maker then the KV-5: LOL you're crazy.
Nice I like it ... Good job devs u have a good game goin! .. I used to think it was biased till I got my Russian IS that make no money at all by the way... It is all about the players and every tree has it's downside and ups so all u whienners shut up this is an awesome free game! And this tank will just make it better! Can't wait give it to me now!
SO... Germans got Lowe, which one is better than KV-5. Soviets need a new good premium vehicle to be competitive with other nations in this segment. It is so important that American tech tree is forgotten.
"Thank your ovi and devs!! said... Nice I like it ... Good job devs u have a good game goin! .. I used to think it was biased till I got my Russian IS that make no money at all by the way...

Judging from the group picture the IS 6 should have a camo value similar to the löwe.
@ Overlord, is it possible to hit the MG on that Turret or will it be like on the IS-7?
Overlord...i can't understand something...who will get this tank? Owners of IS-4's or you will need to buy it? I got IS-4 ONLY for IS-6...it would nice to let players chose what tank they want: IS-6 or ...the other tier 9 who will be put instead of IS-6.

Q: nice armor,nice gun,price should be 15000gold A: Armor is actually not that nice as you might think.
Hi Overlord !When will tracer be arty?
Q: did you also change something on the Tiger 2 last patch? A: Nope, we didn't.
This tank is comming becouse kv-5 is to bad.
Q: @ Overlord, is it possible to hit the MG onthat Turret or will it be like on the IS-7?A: It wont be a part of the hit box ofc.
Hi Overlord,Can you give us an idea of what the armor will be like? e.g. close to the armor of IS-3 or lower?Thank you!
I have an IS4 and E75. The IS4 is way better, why? E75 sucks big time if the enemy team has arty. You get one shot by tier 7 arty way too often. In brawl you get shot in the mudguards. I don't believe the stats WG is releasing to protect the OP Russian tanks.
Its scheduled grand celebrations dedicated to the 67th Anniversary of Slovak National Uprising for the 29 August? To commemorate this major resistance event World of Tanks team can be announces Slovak National Uprising Special discounting prices for the following vehicles 50%:Pz. 35tPz. 38tPz. 38NAT-15T-25HetzerIn addition, you can increasing the profitability (credit income) for the tanks above by 100%. Thanx. It will be great.
Q: Can you give us an idea of what the armor will be like? e.g. close to the armor of IS-3 or lower?A: Front hull will be 100-120 mm.
So is this going to be a replacement of the KV-5 then? Or will there be the two T8 premium Russian tanks?
Why Lowe got 120mm front hull in wot since it has 140mm in real?Looks like WG is creatong another russian OP tank with same armor as Lowe, but with big chance to bounce, better mobility, turning and gun. Premium tanks should have 10cm gun max.
Overlord,will IS-4's owners receive this tank?
Q: So is this going to be a replacement of the KV-5 then? Or will there be the two T8 premium Russian tanks? A: Nope, not a replacement. It will be a completely new tank.
Q: Overlord,will IS-4's owners receive this tank? A: Nope, why should they? :)))
You've already posted screenshots of the IS-6. Can't you show us something like the M103, which is supposedly finished now? Or maybe more of the sherman jumbo, which is actually getting added in the next patch, unlike the IS-6
On IS-6 there will be a gun BL-9 or D30?
BL9? Why? Soviets not OP enough WG?

Ups the object 252, my bad, got confused with all the numbers ^^
Two questions:1) Will it be fun to drive?2) How much?
Dear Overlord!Are you devs planning on doing anything about the number of arties per game or maybe make them harder to play? At higher tiers (9-10) you're lucky if you get 1/5 games that have less then 5 tier 7+8 arties on EACH team. Those artypartygames really make me and others not wanting to get in to our highest tiers to play, cause every game is decided by the arties and there's no way of countering them and their mad accuracy.. Whenever i drive my Maus i find myself scooting to the first building/mountain I can safely get to, only to remain there for the full duration of the game doing nothing because peaking out from your corner is certain death!This is not contributing in any way to a fun and interesting gameplay and should be looked at!Any response on this matter would be greatly appriciated!Hugs from Severinster on the NA server! :)

Q: On IS-6 there will be a gun BL-9 or D30? A: With 99% probability - D-30.
According to the RU forum, the IS-6 will get a D-30 and no BL9 (used google translator).
Overlord do you know ( or guessing ) the D-30 approximately penetration? what shall we count on?
Overlord, I have researched the is7 today, but i dont have it on the garage (money hehe), when you make the changes, Is my tank will still be investigated?. Same for the is4 and the KVs, i dont have they on the garage but, will i receive the new replacement tanks?Thx, i hope your answer.
I have the same question of the techt trees :)
OMG you give him bl 9 then pu bl9 on the KV 5 thats not fair. KV5 is underpowered with huge weakspots.
nice tank if it gets bl9.makes me happy i dident get the kv5.oh, and nerf e75s front armour, my bl10 bounces more on that then vk45p >=/

What armor-piercing and the damage will be at a gun d-30?175/390?
"oh, and nerf e75s front armour, my bl10 bounces more on that then vk45p "Oh you can't penetrate the E-75 front with that op bl-10 and you want nerf..... I can penetrate the E-75 lower hull with 88 L/71.But if they nerf the E-75 they should nerf the following tanks: KV the most OP tank in the game in his tier. KV-3, IS-4, OPject 704,T-54 is op too.
Win ratio is the worst possible way of determining strength, unless you are counting a team made entirely of that tank and fighting a team made entirely of the tank you want to compare it to, and then randomly place players in the two teams a few hundred times. At that point the strength of the tank may show through. Bad teams=bad ratios period end of story. One tank is not going to make the difference in 90% of the fights.
My favorite response to any of this is.. To Devs: Please nerf Paper, Scissors are fine.Thanks, Rock
"PS: It's BL-9 gun."You gotta be f..king kidding me. You Are Giving A RUSSIAN Tank Of TIER 8 A Tier 10 Gun? AGAIN? Stop Favoring the bloody russian tanks. How are we supposed to play if there is evidently No balance in this game? I like my American tanks but if you'll keep creating new tanks the way you create them then I'll have difficulties with being accepted to a clan, because every1 is going to be requesting Russian tanks only.
>BL-9>Tier 10 gunUhhh... nice try.
Q: Will US and Ger also got new T8 premium tanks?
Q: Will US and Ger also got new T8 premium tanks? A: US will get T34.
Overlord, why is the price of IS-6 is 15000 gold higher than the Lowe? Whats the big difference between those two tanks? So assume that IS-6 is better than Lowe?
Quote: Overlord said... Q: Will US and Ger also got new T8 premium tanks? A: US will get T34. UnquoteT34 premium is going to be T8?It's T9, isn't it?SnortschP.S.:Even a rough timeline for the US heavies would be nice, I'm racing for the T30 right now,would love to know how much time I've got.
Well, it is a bit annoyingly frustrating to see pics of the object 252. It is a premium tank that should really not be a priority while we are all asking for pics and news about M103 and T110 which are supposed to replace under perfoming tanks.I think that you merely do not have any news to feed us with, as I do no think that you, Overlord, only answer to questions you like (well you do :p but not in order to frustrate players!).But I have thus one question : why is there so few infos about those 2 heavies, which are so badly wanted/needed ?Why developers do not give you anything to show us seeing how waited those tanks are?
"A: US will get T34."Q: What is the estimated date the T34 will get replaced and become a premium?Thanks
Overlord, can you specify the date of T110 introduction? For players who are heavily grinding to get T30 its quite vital information.
Why did WG implemented a left over HP of 1% when using APCR shells, it happens a lot since last patch. Before it was rare now it happens a couple of times a match? Do you guys really think players don't get it? Your secret manipulation?
E75 is a piece of crap, if the other team has arty. By now every arty player knows about the weakness and on open maps the E75 go down like flies. I rather have an IS4 on my team.
DO SOMETHING WITH THAT CRAP 150MM GUN ON THE E100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BL9....yeah sure.Sell Löwe and Buy IS-6.WG.net really knows how 2 make money
A good money politic from WG. Tehy shipping out this tank, the poor idiot player will buy the IS6 and after a few months the developers will nerf this tank to just as Löwe. Of course tehy dont mentoning that tank values are changing, and they shipping out another premium tank. Truly you guys from WG are disgusting.....
It doesn't matter to me, Russian tank are the easy mode. That's why loser chose them. Do you want to be loser on OP tanks and everybody knows it.
German tanks get released with major flaws. Russian tanks get released OP. That's how it is since closed beta nothing changed. Only now they defend it more with weird statistics, that's all.
Overlord posted something interesting in the EU questions and answers forum:Question:Can you please publish a development roadmap, or even just the plan for next few (or even just the very next 6.7) patches? I just wonder which tank trees will be affected so I can decide what to focus on.Answer:It will be published, working on it at present.
Overlord said... Q: Will US and Ger also got new T8 premium tanks? A: US will get T34.------When?Its not fair that one nation has no heavy premium, and other has two.And thank you for making us KV5 owners idiots for the second time...It is obvious that the guy who was ranting how KV5 is better money maker then Lowe has neither of the two. Or has Lowe and doesn't know how to play it.Fact is that KV5 has sub par gun for its tier and weaker front armor than Lowe. Its (R2D2) easily penetrated by Panzer IV. Tested it personally.So much about "survivability"...
Yup all this mentioned above, imbalances that are too much, secret changes, delivering tanks with flaws, again only one nation of course, makes me retire. I'll play only tourneys and clan games, no more PUGs. Waste of time. I had lately too many games where I got into heavily outclassed matches. Other team 3 tier 8 arty and ours 2 tier 7 and 1 tier 6 and 1 tier 5. I have a feeling they reintroduced the platoon handicap or a handicap on players with a high winratio. So long guys, I'll wait until clan members let me know it's back to normal.
It's amazing, you people have no priorities!, must be a russian thing...
Nice so the 30€ I spent on the KV5 should be given as credit towards buying this new tank.Selling us a sub par tank only have us spend more doe re mi on another is a bit shady at the least.
Why cant people learn to play! (L2P)Russian tanks are Not OP, they however, suck.. I even laugh when I see a IS-4, sooo overrated!And im shocked over how few have heard T-10 will be there instead of obj.252, dont any of ya pay attention? :O
t34 is the new american premium?so let me gues this one...the t30 turret with the 105mm gun? -> biggest joke t8 ever unless u up the armour by freaking loads
Q. any clue on the is4 switch date?
I grinded my way to T34 recently. You should be ashamed of yourself... It is the only tank with stats worse than its predecessor. In fact, it is almost exactly the same as tier VII T29. I need to grind 110000 exp to get at least better gun.Person who put it as tier IX should have been fired on the spot, and you should be busting your balls to replace it as soon as possible. Shame on you!
If you want an easy grind go for Russian tanks.
Can Overlord answer us?? IS6 replace KV5 or no? 2x tier8?MANY THANKS
To above. Plz don't say it so loud. Now more morons will chose Russian, lower therefor the overall win ratio and Russian tanks get buffed. Lol, somehow a hidious cycle.
Anonymous said... If you want an easy grind go for Russian tanks.****I did it simultaneously, and when I got stock IS4 it was slow and I had IS3 gun, so it wasn't roses immediately, but at least the superior armor was there. And now with killer gun and new engine in my IS4 I'm king of the battlefield, and in my T34 I'm scared if tier V tanks spot my glass hull. Hell, I'm scared to fire the gun because my hull could shatter... :)
I play all trees since closed beta. Russians=easy mode (rare bad tanks), American=medium (ups and downs through grind). German=challenge (only a few good tanks and hard grind). Russian again easiest grind, best alpha in general, on distance German precise guns ricochet a lot, due to lack of penetration on distance. Russian best brawlers and faster most of the time. German tanks are slow and big easy arty bait. Camo value of Russian tanks top secret. Higher XP with Russian tanks.
Overlord, seriously, please double check on things before you write. There have been numerous times now where you gave us the wrong info. This is just another example now with the BL-9/D10T fiasco. Look how everyone's up in arms over this because of that info.
Only players with Russian tanks say they are not OP. They try to hide that they suck and chose the easy butto. They are also worried about nerfs. Don't worry they don't nerf your OP babies. They want that losers like you keep playing, lol
Q: How mutch will this beast cost?

do you know when testserver back so we can test this
Hi Overlord,Tank looks sweet can you please add the ability when this tank is released to either choose this or keep the KV-5 for KV owners. Cause i rather change to this tank instead of keeping the KV-5
"you play since closed beta and you still dont know how to play ? terrible"That's from a player who only knows how to play OP tanks, lol. That's terrible.Check at the hall of fame which tanks rake in most average XP. Lol guess what it's Russian tanks. Loser.
I agree, yes you can hide behind the argument every nation has it's pro and cons. But the reality is the Russian tree has a lot little benefits. I have a better win ratio and better XP ratio on my Russian tanks. They could change the bonus of XP for close combat, but they won't. So it's easy to say they are bias. Same with the sniper medal, this would be a medal made for German tankers. Long range hits, but it's funny this medal is easier to achive during a brawl, since there is no min distance required to get this medal. You can add up the list and go and on. What annoys me more, is actually people who take the easy way denying it. It's all the little stuff that adds up. I don't care, just don't like the lies.
@ Overlord.What tank is going to be T 9 in sted of object 252 (IS 6) (the ussr tree seys that object 252 is front of IS 7 but what tank will replace it)?
The DT30 must have better penetration than the DT25 cuz that sort of penetration is a pain in tier8+ matches. It should have similar penetration to what the löwe has, which would give you a BL9 with less damage, a bit less penetration and a lot more precision, so to put the BL9 on the IS-6 would just be fair compared to the löwe.And for the record I hate to play the KV-3. IT is hard to use against tier 7, and it is mathced in tier10 to tier 8 matches a lot more than tier 7 and 6. You can say that the KV is OP in it's tier, but it never plays in tier 5 matches anymore... I find myself using HE all the time in KV and KV-3 simply because I'll always end up in high tier matches (against löwe) and tanks I cannot penetrate (and they one-shot me).I would use the löwe gun all the way to Tier 10 on any tank if I could. The sluggish accuracy of the Soviet guns is reason enough..I only play soviet tanks by the way. up to tier 6 heavy and tier 7 mediums. I must be one of the noob players btw since i play soviet tanks and find tanks like the panther, panther II, löwe etc very hard to face because of their very nice guns and that they are hard to penetrate.. So don't pay any attention to what I've written. ;-PThe only tank I really felt that I was on top in was the BT-2 and the T-34, but this has changed for the T-34. Now it is just used as 1-shot target practice for high-tier tanks..my 2 cents..
Lol the player above is funny, he is so spoiled sitting in his Russian tanks, that he is complaining about German tanks in higher tiers than he owns. That just shows how spoiled Russian tankers are. That was honest, I like it.
nah.. panther is tier 7 medium like my KV-13.. ,-PI have to complain because it's pointless to be the best tier 5 in the universe if you only play against tier 8+. An for the "playing against higher tiers" I find myself rather playing against soviet tanks than the mentioned germans. But that must be their ever so superior skills of course. On the US side I only fear the T29 really.. and the pershing is a pain.. (but thats tier 8 and i'm only tier 7, so i ought to be ass-raped by it...)Tanks i would like to have played (since i don't like to face them) are P4, Vk3601, löwe, panther and T-54. I don't look forward to t-43 and T-44 since they have the same low-penetration IDIOT that i used on the T-34-85..The reason why i'd like the german tanks might be because i'd rather have high penetration than high damage. (panther T8 gun). Hmm looks like the tier 7 panther has a tier 8 gun, whilst tier 6, 7 and 8 soviet mediums only have a tier 7 gun with 175 penetration... hmmmm must be OP som other way then..
A simple question that has more traits to theUS tanks Overlord.Could you make your team correct the commandercuppola on the T29, T34 and T30 being correctedto their REAL versions. Actualy what we have in game is a very wrongdesigned top turret. The commander cuppolais sticking out by some 20cm+ than it was inreal.A good source of information isFirepower A History Of The American Heavy Tankby R.P Hunnicutt. ISBN: 0891413049The profile you find in that book clearlyshow that for the T29, the T34 and T30the commander cuppola was not stickingout of the turret so much. Only on some prototype of the T30E1 had aspecific High profile commander cuppola.That change would be much appreciatedas it would be more accurate historicalyand limit the size of that weakness.Especialy as it was not realy a weaknesshistoricaly speaking.Thanks in advance.
I have a T-54, Panther II, IS-4 and T30. The Russian tanks are way OP. T-54 is such an easy tank to play. T30 sucks so bad, almost as bad as the T34 after the update. You really need to stop working on stupid premium tanks and get the American line fixed. Also worse off, this game is completely unplayable unless you have a premium account at Tier 9/10 levels. I lose money with standard account and I'm ranked in the to 3000 and have 175 snipers. I can't buy my IS-7 because I cannot afford it! Seriously double your credit multiplier on ALL tanks or you'll eventually piss off too many people and we'll all quit. I'm not buying premium again until it's fixed.
I bought a T-25 and it was totaly waste of gold. Totaly useless tank, any improve of gold or exp income.I'm totaly disappointed.And what about 105mm ammo for german tanks? Why russians 107mm cost 254 and germany 105mm more than 1000!?Please fix this two issues. Now isn't reason for buy preemium tanks, because any profatibility isn't there. And about germany top cannon, now is better to buy 88mm, because player can be in + with money, with 105 it is not possiblee even with premium accounts
Overloard question when the T30 move to Tier IX TD happens will it still be elited out or will it have the canon and turret upgrades it did to research that where done in real life that made it the T58 Tank please say u will it would be awesomehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T30_Heavy_Tank
So why you don't play German if they much better?
Everyone complaining about Soviet bias and all that jazz is pretty foolish and I would bargain they were mentally retarded.Anyway, this looks pretty cool. Nothing I'm interested in investing in, since I have the T34 and the Lowe, but it should be nice to see a different premium on the battlefield that can actually do something. I expect that when it comes out, everyone will be crying that it's OP and that there's Soviet bias, blah blah blah. I think it's fine. From paper stats, it should perform similar to the Lowe, as someone stated earlier, and it should be a fairly easy tank to engage. Provided it's not super fast, it won't make the Lowe obsolete unless it's price tag is far, far, far under the Lowe. If it's 7,500 G, then you'll a HUGE amount of these on the battlefield, since it's cheaper. This does unfortunately make the KV-5 completely and utterly useless now.That happens with premium content, oh well, just give me my damn M103/T110 :C
Overlord said... Q: On IS-6 there will be a gun BL-9 or D30? A: With 99% probability - D-30. August 26, 2011 2:03 PM ---------Dear Overlord, you really confuse me. You said "PS: It's BL-9 gun." after the picture, and the last picture surely looks like a BL-9 gun on IS-6. But you also said 99% D-30 gun on IS-6 above.....totally confuse. Which one is correct? If D-30 is correct, why you said it's BL-9 gun at the begining and why that picture with BL-9 gun is here?
Hola Overlord,Since the Object 252 is now being released as a Tier 8 Premium tank, what will be the new tank to take the IS-4's Tier 9 slot when it is converted to Tier 10? AND, When will a revised tech tree image be released to match?Thanks
Can we get more info and possible pics on the Jumbo Sherman. I think that should be priority number 1-10 on this blog.=)
what WILL be the new tier 9 to replace the Is-4 and IS-6/Object 252?Why are you screwing up your own planned tech tree Overlord?
Anonymous said...what WILL be the new tier 9 to replace the Is-4 and IS-6/Object 252?The IS-10 will be the new Tier 9. It's basically an up-armored IS-3. Don't be fooled by the name - while the number is higher, that doesn't mean it's the more advanced tank. The IS-10 could be considered a "cousin", rather than a "successor" to the IS-4.But yes, I agree that this tank isn't the tank we should be getting information on. We should be learning more about tanks that players really care about, like the Jumbo Sherman, US Heavies, and to an extent, French tanks.
Yeah of course premium tank... Looks like you really need more money, eh WG ?? Do something about the game because its dying... Just take 5 mins and check forum and you'll see how many angry and disappointed players are out there...SHAME ON YOU !
If u suck with Russian tanks then u must be tremendous lamer.
"Face 4-6 T9/10 tanks along with the Rest of T7/8 in a Löwe in one match, then we'll see, how much you rofl afterwards.Lame liar. 'I feel your pain brother :) from an undergunned T32 and Tiger II withouth the long 105mm. Tey i'm not complaining.Note: undergunned not underpowered.
