What were you looking forward to, or what would have saved it for you? I'm curious 

 

actually new tanks added 

Joco and many other forum members have suggested literally hundreds of new tanks that could have been implemented.

But because that requires actual time, effort, skill, and money these devs just can't do it.

Damn that's brutal 

 

However, he isn't wrong, tho I'd rather not shut the game down. The devs for console have only released 1 tank that they say they made it from scratch (Grizzly). Just about every other tank is reskins or part swapping.

Taking reskins to a whole new level. You don’t even bother adding new tanks, but rather you mix and match tanks already in the game....pathetic.

"5 Tanks"
Oh my lord come on. You have people like Joco suggesting entire lines of historically accurate tanks, and including ideas on how to balance them. Instead you decide to add 5 tanks that are just mix matched versions of pre existing tanks that aren't historical what so ever.

 

What exactly were you expecting a 'Mercenary' line to be? An ATV, four Technicals, two Armored Cars, an APC, an Angolan Sherman, and a stripped-down T-55 with welded panels over the bore-hole from the last round that knocked it out of action?

 

Mercenary groups are not now (nor have they ever been) rolling out worldwide with sizable Armored forces - they do not have the logistical capability to deploy heavy armor on a consistent basis. Any effort towards including a Mercenary line was - by definition - going to be an exercise in fantasy; this at least takes what they've previously established with War Stories and provides a framework within which their 'alternate history' can exist while simultaneously offering some kind of explanation for why tanks from multiple nations are engaging in 15v15 battles across the world.

While I'm not disappointed in the content itself but I, and probably many others, were expecting a tech tree made up of tanks from nations that can't be their own solid line when it comes to the Mercenary line. This stuff is just copy paste designs :(

Exactly what I was expecting. A TT line of misfit tanks from nations not big enough to support a line itself. Don't get me wrong though, a game mode where it's all lights with kv-2 turrets sounds hilarious....but not in the regular game...especially when I'm in my historically acurate tank fighting back.

While its true that mercenaries don't have a large arsenal of tanks, we gave the name Mercenary to the expected TT because it best fit with the idea that the tanks from small nations couldn't have a solid TT for said small nation.

Knew it soon as Pain teased it all that time ago, no way console would have the effort or skill to actually research new lines of tanks, instead they do a bit of copy/pasting and some colour swaps.

 

We probably could have had the Italian tree by now had they not spent time playing swapsies.

 

I'm not even that disappointed, I knew it would be a halfarse job.

A long time ago, WG stated they were working on a new line and called it the “Mercenary Line”. This was supposed to be a combination of vehicles from nations that didn’t have enough tanks to create its own tech tree.

I'm quite interested about this update. The Mercenary tech tree will be a bit off the hist... wait people play wot for historical accuracy? Hmmm.... 

 

But hopefully they don't remove any maps when they add this update. Also I wonder if this update will bring the vehicle changes. If so this is going to be one big update... 20 days, hopefully they weave out any bugs.

People play WoT looking for tanks. The more historical the tanks are,the sensation of playing tanks is better IMO. 

This line of vehicles are closest to CROSSOUT more than a game of tanks

it's soo pathetic 

It's like a big slap in the face to Joco (not sure if he feels that way) or any community member that ever suggested new tanks.

Literally hundreds of suggestions could have been implemented, but instead they pull this crap

 

Why don't you do yourself a favour and quit WoT and the forums if you're so angry all the time? You'll get a bloody heartattack one day over basically nothing. It's a game, a hobby, a pastime. You had your fun and now it isn't any more. Then make a clean cut and step away for a while and find something else to enjoy. You're not getting younger and the grim reaper is closing in on all of us.

Remember, it's just a game!

war stories was pointles and boring right from the start of it and this is just the same as war stories with few minor twists, if i didnt read it totally wrong. And top of that those tanks looked hideous. Im not intressed at all and if they have used theyr whole time on this thing, like they have used theyr whole time on war stories before this, i dont think that they can make those things to the game, what the game really needs and have needet for a long time now, like pc sounds, better mm (not +-1 or pc:s 3-5-7) just changes to it to make more balanced teams etc. This year has been total lett down from them so far (only update was just for war stories) and looks like it just contiue on that same path

My few thoughts about last two weeks and the near future in WoTC:

1. Vacation time starts and some kids will stay at home.

2. Kids are now WoTCs target as it`s easier for WGCB team to provide something on their intelectual level (don`t ask why, you know perfectly why…;).

3. US education system is partly responsible for the WoTC state right now.

4. Let me help you Rai... Tomato is a fruit. Have fun helping with the game development. Say hi to plague and voli.

5. I`m sure that Jordan Peterson would be able to tell many things about why those people are so…

6. They say that overpopulation is the great problem of the future. Well in that case WoTCs servers are a light of hope.

7. Expect everything done in the most turded way by this company and you`ll never get desapointed.

Going back to earning my obj. 907 on CW now, have fun.

Oh boy...

THAT'S your holy grail update to save the game? Players have been raging about reskins for months and you present a whole freakin reskin techtree? 

Dear WG, are you smoking weed?

No new maps, no balance update, no clan wars.

But a reskin nation which tanks look like [edited]. Effin fugly. Eye Aids. 

After prem time expires i might pull the plug as well.

I'm really excited to see how this plays out. 

Mercenary lines are an interesting concept, with lots of potential ideas that could be implemented / exploited. However it's hard to know just what it will bring to the game until we see the implementation. It's how all these ideas are executed in game that is key. Good luck WG and don't let me down! 

:)
