Wargaming publishes news according to the servers time zone. It's your problem if you find the news on different servers earlier.

The thing is, there won't be any increase in net profitability unless you die quite often.

I think they're referring to the regular Tier V Panzer IV Ausf.D, not the Hydrostat or the Anko Panzer ones: http://wotblitz.com/...ny/Pz_IV_AusfD/

 

Eh, I don't mind the update, the Leo 1 gets a profitability increase and a repair cost reduction.  If you get hit it's guaranteed to cost you cause its armour is paper.

 

 

Nope, they mean the Pz IV Anko, that's why it was listed under Japanese tanks. Kinda sad, I thought they said they weren't nerfing any premium tanks. Where's DysfunctionalDiversion's crying cat face? I need it.

Seems pretty legit. -50% repairs basically is tier X 30k repairs will be reduced to 15k.

Noobs make more money while seasoned players take a loss. 

 

WG's just telling us to buy premium and premium tanks.

They knocked the profitability down by a quarter. Unless you take a lot of damage, those repairs costs are not going to offset that whatsoever. Some tanks got a net buff, but for good IS-7 players, this was certainly a credit nerf.

Really.....Absurd move WG, don't touch my premium tanks, even my Anko. That IS a premium tank, NOTHING is "Free," we battled 50 victories to earn it. 50 victories or more battle attempts that COST us credits to battle in our tanks.

Anko is getting NERFed because there's close to 11000 people driving it more than 100 games, avg battle count among them is 233, avg wr is 52 ........ so it is a free credit earning and winning tank that people are using to grind credits. WG wants to remove the incentive to use it as a credit grinder and get them to drive something else. 

 

Similar thing with most of those tier III premiums that can't make credits because they've got a stupid tier I or II gun and have to go full on APCR ... cough cough PZ II J. Cost a small fortunate. No earnings, because if you want to win you're firing premium.

I know why they are nerfing, however, it still is a an absurd move by WG to remove that credit earning capability from this premium tank. Premium tanks that they said they wouldn't change but did. Are they trying to convey that Anko is not premium, but only a "special event tank?" If that is the case, what will stop them from doing the same to future special event tanks? By doing this, they remove the incentive for players to battle to earn another special event tank that just looks cool but doesn't profit the player by completing it....

How?

I’ve noticed a strong lack of Spare Parts. Is that intended?

No, it is not. This problem will solve itself with time. Many players have several dozens of vehicles in their Garages, so they don’t have enough Spare Parts for the entire vehicle fleet. But you will gradually collect enough Spare Parts to unlock new slots for purchased tanks in time.
