Sadly confirms that both the camo and XP shift to a lower tier rather than staying with the tank. Le sigh...

Not to mention that it doesn't even acknowledge the existence of at least 6 other regular LT's in the Soviet line.

All this talk about Lights and they they completely ignore 37.5% of the tanks in the category.

Take the T-80 and the A-20 for instance, in the wiki they both get MM up to battle tier 7 - presumably they are taking the +3 matchmaking off which means they should feature in the patch notes?

What is the point of leaving XP on a T8 light when you get the T9 as part of the changes?

 

Not everyone has the gold need to convert to free xp, how about a 1 to 25 conversion as part of the restructure or better still move the XP to the T9 where it will be useful.

 

XP earned on a light tank with a premium account has already been paid for, not fair to have to pay to make it usable twice

I imagine the elc drivers would be similarly pleased with their 90mm nerfs. But I guess we could save that and all the other pleasing aspects of the patch for later notifications.

"Finally, changes to the branch structure won’t affect XP you’ve earned on light tanks. They stay at the Tier they were earned on."

 

lol RIP.

 

This is the first time that exp grinded didn't move with the tank iirc?

 

How many thousands of hours did players spend for those tier 8 LT exp anticipating it goes with the tank?

How much money would WG make via gold transactions for converting those exp to free exp?

How much hate does WG think this would cause? Given they even gave this a real thought that is..

 

And my last question, Is it worth it? This ridiculous money grab?

Nope, your T49 will become tier 9 with 0 exp. All your tier 8 exp will remain in tier 8 which is the bulldog even if you don't own a bulldog.

That is clear and understandable

the question is - if I have T49 only in my hangar, after patch will I just get the same T49 on tr9 or T49 PLUS a Bulldog on tier 8 as it was done on test server or will I have to buy a Bulldog if I want to play tier 8 battles?

What happens to the tanks if they are only researched and not bought?

For example, if we have the current 1390 and have researched both the BatChat 25t AP and AMX 30 but not bought because of low credits. Will they stay researched after the tech tree changes in 9.18?

They have given it no thought . They simply don't care . They have genuinely just gone [edited] it . Lets just throw this shit out there and see if it floats

A total of 5 days testing ( that was broken into 2 lots ) With a peak of 1400 players and forced tank selection . Skewed data much ? Current course I'd say no one is going to bother with converting and just leave the exp sit and rot .

No idea who is driving the Bus at WG . You have to wonder though just what the hell is going on .


Sig number 6 gone . In Armageddon - Day 1.  Note the date .

You're a weird mob . I'd like to go quietly into the night . I understand Mods are here to stay . I understand Mission / SH / CW rigging is here to stay .

I'll not bother the forums with these things . Let me go in peace . Not sure though why I cannot try and get cheap gold if it's ok for others to do .

found on RU cluster:

if you do not have new tier 8 tank in hangar you will get tank+slot+50% crew

if you have one (like LTTB or Bulldog) you will get 1.2M credit

The wiki is wrong.  Both the A-20 and the T-80 have standard MM.  The T-80 never had scout MM, the A-20 was changed about a year ago.

Is it WG intention to intentionally attack two factions of WoT the LT's and SPG players, what is really going on at WG are they not making enough $$$ for their shareholders? Not only are the LT drivers copping the sneaky changes on tier levels, but some LT's are losing DPM??? But I'm sure I read that the LT drivers will be losing spotting dam as well? And thought us SPG drivers were having a bad day......
