Quite curious as to why the Ram II is being removed, it has standard MM and isn't excessively overpowered for a premium, it is simply a more mobile church III with less armour.

3 out of the 4 have not been in the game that long at all.

 

Why remove any of them at all?

 

Blatant money grab!

So WGContent was fired and replaced by WGNews? I hope the new one knows how to proof read and much better in copy & paste.

How long do you consider long Mowie? They've all been around over 12 months and apart from the 85i they're not very good.

Outrage is too exhausting to maintain for years on end. Numpty fatigue has set in.

The rage of 2013/2014 has sullenly ceded ground to apathy and despair, there is no viable alternative.

That's not nice crow.. the Ram has feelings, now I must go get a rammer for my ram.. and ram some things. That little tank is a monster, WITHOUT premium rounds, I think the dirty gold spamming scrubbies at tier 5 make it a tad imbalanced by sheer weight of scum.

Sexton 1, most OP tonk in the game. Glad to see the battlefield will no longer be plagued by this monster slaughtering baby seals by the dozen.......

Did WG remove the TOG from sale in both premium shop and in-game shop without giving announcing that they were going to do so?

 

If yes they did not inform anyone regarding the removal from sale, why have double standards by informing us about the 4 tanks mentioned in this thread and not mentioning anything about the removal of TOG?

Most definitely, got the RAM II and the Pz IV (though I am absolutely crap in the Panzer). I was thinking about getting the other two in the sale but forgot about them. Doubtful prems will go on sale before they are ditched though. Are the Sexton or the SU-85i actually any good?

Pretty sure they announced the removal of the TOG II, I remember thinking I was glad I got mine in a sale some time before the announcement.

Not selling well? Announce you're removing it...

WARNING!!! THE ABOVE POST WILL CONTAIN SARCASM. My day job does not allow sarcasm, so its use may be obscure and liberal.

Sarge: What a way to go. Killed by my own mechanical creations. I'm sure there's a philosophical lesson to be learned from all this.
Simmons: Something about the dangers of technology and the unwavering pride of mankind?
Sarge: No, something about hiring better help that doesn't just stand around watching you die!

I don't believe we should kill all the stupid people. Just remove some of the warning signs and let nature take its course...

So here's hoping with the removal of the CANADIAN RAM M3 based tank, WOT will replace it with the AUSTRALIAN M3 based the SENTINAL, (Look it up) and its giant [edited] gun.

It would be nice to actually get some Aussie & NZ content other than  2 flags and 2 animal emblems.

The sexton is (I don't play TD's), you've got the potential to 1 shot most tanks Tier 4 and below if you pen as most tanks in those tiers aren't well armoured. It fires very quickly as well and with a decent brit SPG crew in it the accuracy is reasonable. Not sure if I'd say OP but its probably along the lines of the french prem SPG which had to be moved from T4 -> T5 and was also removed from sale etc.

Sexton likes PzIIJs very much :)

I don't remember seeing any news from WG Asia about removing the TOG II from sale, I only got to know about it from the WoT EU and NA website. Oh well, good for them if they did announce it.

So, basically, remove all pref tanks and low tier seal-clubbing tanks?

 

Then the Locust is next!
