I know Wargaming has said somewhere that we won’t be receiving new tank lines until early next year, which just makes me wonder what’s being worked on since we haven’t had new tanks added in forever, the last “big balance update” wasn’t even a big update and didn’t address the tanks that really needed balancing. Like it would make sense to release a new tank line soon around the holidays to draw people back to the game when they’re anticipating to spend money on the game because that’s what people do around the holidays. And then with new tank lines, could we expect the Swedish mediums or the French wheeled lights first?

That’s not going to become in-game content this year..... unless it’s a bare bones proto in a separate mode.  They’ve acknowledged that it’s not going to be a fast thing.

 

As to the OP....  “content” isn’t always new tank lines..... But a good rule of thumb for when to anticipate the arrival of such things like new tanks is to 1) look at their original live-release date on PC, then 2) add anywhere from 12-18 months to that date.  
 

I would add a side note that since this is Console(a mostly independent game) that “content” may also turn out to be console-exclusive content you didn’t expect because you(or someone else) were too focused on wishing we were PC.  For better or worse that’s what Mercs were...... We’ll always receive the new PC tanks eventually on console, but you never know what may appear in the meantime.

I doubt we see much in the way of remarkable content ie new lines, maps, features etc the rest of this year save the reward tier X maybe and a smattering if premiums maybe. It’s too late in the year for any major content updates. I wish that we were given an actual content roadmap but I’ve wasted that since the game went live and wel...

I understand all this, but people don’t want new mercenary tanks, they want the French wheeled light tanks. They want the Swedish mediums. They want another balance update as well that actually addressed the balance of tanks that need balancing, which hasn’t happened in a while and needs to be thought about again

The question I answered was what was being worked on.  I just went bare bones. 

 

I imagine they are working on those Swede and French lines as well as they have to figure out how to incorporate the mechanics, particularly the French tanks.  WG just doesn't say what they are working on, though they have brought the monthly overviews back, which is awesome.  But I don't think they mentioned the Monster crews in the overview.  

 

They like to intro things in January, because people receive $$$ for Christmas, holiday, end of year as well.  People don't tend to put a digital tank under the tree, but they get MS gift cards.  There will be plenty of sales in November and December for other stuff.  People will go play other games and when they finish come back to tanks--happens all the time.

We don’t need (edit)ing tanks,tank lines or ops.  Need new (edit)ing content and the drop of the 360!

Lines and biggest stuff that surely will come starting from May 2020 to December 2020:

 

- French wheeled carts Probably with it's mobility WAY too nerfed, or probably not, because all the garbage and bumps with the clown car physics can balance them.

- New map full of bullscrap I would call it Trainwreck as it would be just that. Probably with reduced visibility variant

- Swedish Mediums + Hydropneumatic suspension + Medium tanks rebalance: More nerfs for the Leopard I and the Obj.430 U because those were buffed on PC and we are different.

- British Light Tanks: ...Those are gonna be extra fun.

- Double Barrelled Russian Heavy Bias: Who else can't wait to sit for a whole minute to see how you double shot lands out of the map?

There’s always been a process for bringing PC tanks over to console and that process has rarely(if ever) taken less than 6mos and is usually a minimum of a year.  Just because they’re not here now doesn’t mean they won’t be coming.... they’ll just come when they’re ready.

 

Also... I didn’t suggest they were making new Merc tanks, I was suggesting that more console-exclusives are always possible. What would YOU like to see on Console that IS NOT on PC?  Think about that for a bit... we’re not PC and our Devs have some freedom to make original content. (And constructive feedback always takes precedent over the usual salt from players who should just suck it up and buy a PC instead so they can play the game the want this one to be)

 

Also.... balancing is nearly always subjective.... one person’s OP nemesis is another person’s trash they can’t make work.  Not a single balance update, no matter how “rational” or “sensible” or “well informed” it may be, will EVER make everyone happy so keep your hopes low on that front.

Swedish mediums would be cool. 

 

Our maps are way way too small for the French wheeled vehicles to be effective. Assuming they would be brought in at the same design as pc. And that’s usually a bupkis assumption these days.

That sadly is more than a simple request for this dev team... I'm answering out of sarcasm i would love to see all that :confused:
