As part of their tool kit to balance tanks, the Devs can alter a tanks silver/XP earnings to either incetivise or decetivise play of that tank.

 

Does anyone know if they publish that information?

Which was the last tank to be balanced innthis way?

When was the last tank balanced in this way and how often does it occur?

 

( In a dev video a while ago this was specifically mentioned as a tool they have, not just buffing/nerfing it's more tanky stats

It's actually a really good video by Jeff and covers all about balancing).

Didn't know they had ever done it and every time someone claims that a tank is getting less silver it's denied. It probably has been done at some point though and I've never seen any notices, but to be honest I don't read all the release notes.

Neither do I.

I'd imagine few people do read them. Most the player base only gets the information that's provided on the console portal/splash screens.

 

It's just a question Ive been meaning to ask since I watched the video with Jeff.

I imagine they would, but as they've never nerfed silver or xp earnings it's hard to know. I think they did buff a premium tanks silver bonus once.

The xp and silver bonus for each premium tank is available on the tankopedia page.

They've really only ever nerfed earnings in AI mode.

We do publish it, if it changes. That's something that very rarely happens and can really only think of one time. That was when the AMX Chaffee was changed to Tier 7, we changed the XP earning to compensate for the tier change so that it's XP earnings would remain the same.

The T23E3 had its silver earning changed in one of the earliest patches in the game.

I don't know whether ot not you were even a WG employee then. 


You can PM with with questions, if you wish. I don't bite.

This was early 2014, if I recall, so a very long time ago.

That tank got buffed quite a lot.

The FV 4202P also got a Silver earning buff a while back.  Went from 50-ish up to 60.
