ans of the German tech tree will see the debut of two new vehicles—the Tier 4 DW heavy chariot and the Tier 6 VK3002 (M) medium tank. The VK3001H heavy tank will be moved to Tier 5, undergo rebalancing, and become a heavy tank, just as the VK3601H.
Update 8.8 will also introduce two new Chinese premium machines—the Tier 8 T-34-3 medium tank and the 112 Tier 8 heavy tank, as well as a new battle arena with autumn setting—Tundra.
Heavy chariot? So the German HT line would be DW (T4) -> VK30.01H (T5) -> VK36.01H (T6) -> Tiger H
Odd, Henschel's 30-ton tank would be a tier beneath Porsche's competing design.
.
So if I have a VK36.01 my crew would be retrained to HT?
.
.
Overall looking forward to this patch.
.
Edit: Grinding pziii/iv, and whew, good thing i researched the vk3001D first before the vk3001H, which i havent researched yet. So probably the revamped MT line would PzIII/IV (T5) -> VK3002M (T6) -> Panther? I'm looking forward to reverse-grinding this line all over again :)

"Update 8.8 will introduce some very cool new machines into the Soviet and German lines. Strengthened with the addition of even more medium and heavy vehicles, the game’s roster will offer players extra variety, while the rebalance within the German line will provide for a more well-rounded experience"

more German Nerf ?  :sad:

Buff would be nice...

But if it is nerf it will most probably be:
-German tanks accuracy will be nerfed so they can never hit any weakspots, let alone damage the tank-

Just changing the tank class from med to heavy doesn't mean much..
What numbers they are going to change will....

DW stands for Durchbruchswagen, it was designed as a tank to overcome trenches with it's armor.
Wagen = chariot/wagon

This was actually planned since... *sighs* Uhm... I'm not sure since it's been a while... patch 0.6.X?
Every time this was brought up in the Q&As, Overlord's blog, etc the devs said there won't be many changes to the VK36, because it already plays
like a heavy.

 

 

Playing without Mods would be boring.

VK3601 to be a heavy? Then most likely they're going to remove its top engine which gives it amazing acceleration so as to fit in to the "Heavy Meta"... sure smells like a nerf. Not to mention it's a nerf to the team too since it's pitted against its "equal peers" (e.g. KV-1S, M6, ARL 44) instead of having an advantage over its fellow Medium Tanks on its tier as a hybrid heavy-medium.
Booo! :angry: Don't you be touching my 3601 WG!

3601 as heavy....

as long as they keep its stats there won't be many tears from me. Konich and 88 L/56 is good enough against same tier heavy. And for tier 6 heavy, 3601 will have relatively low silhouette than other Heavies except KV-1S (M6 and ARL44 comes into my mind).

Of course, this mean i have abundance of heavy tanks on my garage.... need more medium in near future.

Back to World of Tanks for now.
