Well yes it would be simpler for WG, but you need to consider the people that owned them paid for a tier 8 tank that sees only as far as tier 9.

 

So if they dropped them to tier 7, and they kept their credit earning potential, their xp earning potential, and everything else they would have got if they were a tier 8, then maybe they might be able to appease the masses. 

 

*disclaimer: I'm aware there's more to a pref tier 8 than my simple points above.

 

That idea has merit, but that would mean Super Pershings, IS-6s, KV-5s and Jagdtiger 88s could face tier 5s! Imagine your KV-1, Sherman, T67 or even the humble Russian T-34 against these tanks.  The pain, oh the pain.  By fixing one problem, they would create another.

So I have a question...After the "fix" tier VIII pref prem tanks by removing the preferential part..what will happen to the lower tier pref prem tanks?  Such as the tier II Pz.Kpfw. 38H 735 (f), Tier V KV-220-2, Tier V   Excelsior  (to name a couple)?

Wont these end up "screwing MM" as well?? Or are WG going to "Balance" these tanks as well?. I dont think WG thought this out very good

The tier II Pz.Kpfw. 38H 735 now has standard tier 2 MM.

So 25 percent of the player base are the ones who put money into the game. I wonder if the 25 percent will shrink rapidly to about 4 percent. I am not aware of what the business strategy is where the paying customers are the ones you purposefully irritate. I wonder if they have realised that when you don't want to buy a prem tank anymore as it's left you with a bad taste in your mouth you aren't buying gold, prem account and just watching your prem account run out. 2 years plus of prem runs out in 3 hours to never be renewed.

How about this for an idea WG - +/- 1 MM - end of story. 

I like this very simple fix to MM.

 

But will you then get people complaining that they bought a certain premium because it had better chances due to it having a Preferential, and now it doesn't have that over other tanks. 

 

Or will WG drop the prices of those tanks that they remove the Pref from, then offer a small compensation for the price difference to existing owners?

 

Common sense would say to go the +/- 1 MM.

The problem then is the pref MM tank owners not only lose the thing that made them special, but they are by and large poor for their tier so would need a buff anyway.

Actually you are right on the money with this. I have stopped puchases of any kind and I know many others that have to.

Call-up to all interested tankers...

This goes out to all who like to help their fellow tankers worldwide. I guess you all had read the article or heart about the changes which seems WG is still head on, for the preferantial match making tanks.

 

We... and by that it means the most owners of pmm tanks in EU, especially germans, came to a point were we have to call-up all tankers worldwide.

The problem with WG's dumbest advance since release ever and no answer or even a statement since weeks, leave it to us to act.

 

Our suggestion is it, show WG how serious we are all together about their customer politics and communication.

Just stop playing the game for just 30 mins 3:00 pm ACST(UTC +9:30) every day til they come with solution for their selfmade problem.

 

I can't and i won't suggest it, cause it would harm WG financially, so it's upon you to decide how far you like to go with your protests. But for example, a lot of players in EU fully stopped playing, playing only necessarily matches, stopped paying or buying any of WG's stuff since WG is unbale to react propper and pull back with their plans for pmm tanks.

 

So if you have CW's or Campaign play on, if you have to grind further your tanks, feel free to do so. But please show WG once a day, even if it's only around that time and less than 30mins, that we are all tankers together. And that we won't accept everything WG throwing at us.
