A little while ago we had 1960 era tanks in an ad titled World of Tanks WWII. Now we have stuff like this:
 
"New" Maps coming to console.
 
Screenshots from the PC version
 
I'd love new tanks and maps every week, so when does this update plan take affect?

I saw that ad for the "New" map Fjords as well. I just facepalmed and moved on.

 

"New content every week" may be referring to Wargaming changing the lineup of tanks available in the Premium Tech Tree every week. Beyond that, I haven't a clue.

 

EDIT: Speaking of the Premium Tech Tree, it hasn't been updated since February 27th. Two weeks ago. Guess this can't be the "New content every week" they are advertising then eh?

​Maybe the new content are the weekly ops?

I'd think that you would want your employees to be familiar with the product they're being paid to represent, but that's just me.

New content: remove 1 map in exchange for adding a previously pulled one each week.

Not true, when Nomahan and Live Oaks were added, None were removed.

In the March Overview they mentioned that the Premium TT will be closing up shop at the end of the month.  The indication is that they will start selling tanks out of it again down the road.  I’m gonna go ahead and predict that we’ll see a special event where every tank ever will be for sale at one time(but probably not the Black ones....but you never know) for maybe a weekend.

Not that patch no, it was in the current patch when Fjords was added, when Live Oaks was added none was removed.

 

But 3 maps are being reworked due to FPS Loss and Lag Issues and will return at some point but people look at it as a bad thing rather than a good thing :)

I believe Ice bound is being reworked as it was a terrible map.
Most battle weren’t really fought in the city, the Outer edges is where a lot of people camped up on the snow covered ridges on the one side.
Maybe they will simply get rid of the ridges that surround the map and that will be enough? Not sure though . Never really liked that map.

​I hated all 3 maps that were removed, but the 2 snow city maps can come back as long as Ghost Town - Thunderstorm stays gone forever. The game has been improved with the removal of these 3 maps IMO.

I liked Ice bound, but if its the cost to get live oaks back I can deal with that.

Marketing is far far better than whom ever is in charge of game mechanics. Kudos to the guys doing graphics and models etc. even the hated tanks are a sight to see..... the game mechanics though  sad to see such wasted potential.
