Hello! A lil bit of backstory if you'd like to read it, I bought and played in the Jumbo for a fair while before 4.9 to complete some Merc contracts, eventually got enough to research the T20. Did so, however didn't buy it as I didn't really plan on going down that line. A few weeks later (today) I'm looking at the American Tech Tree and notice that I can Research the Pershing. Tentatively I convert 90k xp with gold expecting it to give me an error along the lines off 'Must have prerequisite packages to unlock'.

 

Only It never did. So now I've got an Elite Jumbo and a Pershing, despite never even purchasing the T20, and according to the tech tree I should have had to research and purchase at least a two packages on the T20 itself before even having the opportunity to research the Pershing.  

 

TL;DR - Researched and bought the Pershing despite never even owning the T20, nor researching any of it's packages. 

 

 

This could either be a UI bug/issue where there should be a line straight from the T20 to the Pershing, allowing instant research and purchase, or there's a slightly bigger issue allowing the research and purchase of tanks that you shouldn't be able to.

Hello, the packages aren't "required" once you start making your way up multiple branches, this is due to tank sharing the same modules. If you've already researched the required module needed to unlocked a specific tank on another vehicle, than the packages are not longer required since you already have the module needed. :honoring:

There is literally an Xbox 360 in a museum, and this is the best joke you can come up with?

T20 is much more fun than Pershing imo.

wgw is misleading as usual. packages without the cost of experience or with discounts on the purchase, already passed in other lines is a common situation. On the video a bug with a full discount on the tank passage and not the package. such a discount can not be.
