Question for the community; how many people want wargaming to resell the valkyria tanks, and are they still ridiculous when compared to the recent merc tanks?

I do. I've desperately wanted Edelweiss for so long.

I don't want that they are sold.

There is a difference between completely fictional tanks and tanks that were never build but their parts were. That is where I draw the line.

The Nameless for example is meant to look quite like a Tiger II but the parts are out of shape and were never planned or build that way.

All Merc tanks are made of parts that were produced or at least planned to be produced.

They can't sell them due to licence issues.

But they're working on it. 

 

Edelweiss used to be a great heavier tier VIII Light tank ans could hunt the opposing Light Tanks with ease, now that there are tier X Lights, its role shifted a bit to some kind of firefighter running on all fronts to provide support where needed. 

Imagine an armored CDC without gun depression but with a lot more armor.

 

Nameless, when it doesn't get spammed with prammo, is pretty tough and despite being less agile than its medium friend, can still deploy very quickly on the battlefield, especially considering the fact that this is a well armored heavy tank. Hide lower plate, beware of high hull and poor gun depression...

 

Loved both, did not take much time lately to play them.

I hope so. Hafen and Lupus will be a day one buy. I love the edelweiss.  Think of pershing. Make it faster and give it a smaller turret. Its the best jack of all trades. If they sold the skins like company of heroes 2 does, will buy them too. They look great.

 

 

 

 


“Greatness is a transitory experience. It is never consistent. It depends in part upon the myth-making imagination of humankind. The person who experiences greatness must have a feeling for the myth he is in. He must reflect what is projected upon him. And he must have a strong sense of the sardonic. This is what uncouples him from belief in his own pretensions. The sardonic is all that permits him to move within himself. Without this quality, even occasional greatness will destroy a man.”

I kind of agree with you. I really don’t like fictional tanks, but your view of what is fictional and what my view is are different. But I do believe that AT LEAST ONCE we all have seen a fictional tank whether in anime, book, or another video game. and wonder, “I wonder how that would stack up with irl tanks?”

Well, yes. I would love to know what a Scorpion or Grizzly from the Halo series would be like in WoT, but I think they would be somewhere around tier 19 or even higher. Then there are the Siege Tanks from StarCraft(the first one). They look similar to the Grizzly but just from the dates when the games take place I would say the Siege Tank would be about two or three tiers lower than the Grizzly. 

What other interesting tanks do we have?

Maybe the Akula from Act of War. Don't know where that might be.

Any others? Nothing else appears in my mind that is interesting. I focus on tanks with tracks.

@Merun the whole wh40k universe Imperial Guard tanks.
They got light tanks, medium tanks, heavy tanks, super heavy tanks, arty and tank destroyers both turreted or not.
And not just the "modern" ones, Forgeworld developped many "ancient" concepts and made them available such as the Malcador and the Macharius (the Macharius Vanquisher being one of my favorite tank designs ever).

Some interesting points here, I own both nameless and edelweiss and i really love them both. I personally would like them to be sold again so people who missed it to get their hands on them (without experiencing the anime tank focus fire i did lol). I might even post tips for both tanks in this thread for those who would like to play them to their fullest potential. (Btw i have some interesting fun facts about each tank)

Hopefully never. Wacky fake tanks have no place in WoT.

At least tech tree tanks were designed for use in real life, not for some anime game or whatever is what they were made for.

Over half the tanks in this game are fictional. Some where straight up created by wargaming. I don't see an issue with adding girls und panzer tanks or the like. we already have tanks like the *bleep* beach party. and T.A.N.K so why not

I want the Valkyria Chronicles tanks and, to a lesser extent, the GuP tanks. There are no licensing issues as far as I can see. They are currently available in WoT Blitz, they even have 2 or 3 new ones. Basically I believe it's an issue with demand. Assuming WG pay a lump sum for the license to sell them over a given period, WG need to be sure that they'd get a sufficient return on their investment, i.e. they need to know they can shift enough to make a profit. Maybe they didn't sell in sufficient numbers last time, but I've seen quite a few players asking about them during RaiBOT01's Thursday stream. The Nameless gets a mention every week and I think the Edelweiss would too but Nameless is easier to spell :).

Would we get a gold refund if we still have our virginity? :trollface:
