So with tier 10 lights confirmed release tomorrow I have a question.

 

If we have the T49, RU 251, T-54 Lightweight, AMX 13 90, M41 Bulldog, or T71 in our garage when the tier 10 lights go live, what will happen to them? I ask because every one of those gets bumped up a tier except the T71 which gets split into two different vehicles.

 

Additional tack on questions for two different light tanks.

 

AMX Chaffee has +4 matchmaking right now at tier 6 and I saw (while tankopedia had the changed) that it saw up to tier 9. Does this mean it will have scout matchmaking or some kind of hybrid matchmaking?

 

The Snakebite currently has preferential scout matchmaking (can't be top tier but only sees up to tier 8) and I noticed earlier on tankopedia that it still saw up to tier 8. Does it's matchmaking stay the same or does it go to standard matchmaking?

This is pretty cool. The new War Story sounds awesome, interesting way of having a German (or possibly French, judging by the commander's name) WS chapter. I'm excited for the earn op as well.

looks like the earn op is a Blitzen (got it free so 1 less tank for me), T-28E with F30, and the ISU-122 or 130? and maybe 6 other tanks

(But max pick of 3?)


Edited by greenteam117, 06 December 2017 - 05:50 AM.

my stats (only one image).

favorite tank(s) are : captured KV-1, champion, Gorynych KV-5, bogatyr, churchill III, Glory is-5, IS-2, Kaiju, Edelweiss, Nameless, e-100, type 5 heavy, T-10, The Hidden, M4A1 Revalorise, Hammer, IS-3, Fatherland, GuP, Lycan, T26E4, Boilermaker,Pz. II J PS, Valentine II, Honor T-28E (and maybe some other tanks that are not coming to mind) i pretty much like all the tanks that i own (i find it fun to earn premium tanks).

Hey WG, I got a question about this patch. Will we be allowed to keep heroine Marianne Durieux to be able to transfer to our normal tanks?

This has been true for every WS so far so most likely

I'd like to know this too, as I have an M41, and recently bought the Snakebite on the War Stories promo, and the AMX Chaffee on Cyber Monday- I'd like to know how my purchases have been affected, and whether that effect, if any, is adverse.

 Your passion for World of Tanks, as well as love for World War II history and its armored vehicles, inspires us to make World of Tanks the game it is today

 

So, filled with garish camos, fake tanks and War Stories lacking any basic historical knowledge then? :trollface:

 

But still, though I'm nowhere near a tier X light nice to see them drop and free ISU130 could be fun if I have the time to grind for it.

With Tier X Light Tanks coming out, will you adjust other Light Tanks to only see 2-tiers higher?

Any one else notice how they (WG) released this after all the forum staff had gone home so no one would be here to answer these questions?

​ I was going by the uniform ,goggles , Dust storm and desert setting in the picture.  It is alternate history , maybe France is a desert there..
