We have probably all read and shrugged off the news that Wargaming will be at the Tokyo Game Show this year. However, I believe that their active participation in this event over in Japan foreshadows something... Every time there has been a Tokyo/Japan event they have always released some content related to Japan. Two years ago it was the Japanese Heavies on PC and the Japanese line here, last year it was the Valkyrie Chronicles tanks and the O-47, so it is perfectly reasonable to expect something Japan related to come out of HQ within the next few weeks. Hopefully it will be the announcement of development on Japanese tank destroyers for PC and consul and maybe even Japanese heavies for blitz! Or it could be the STA-2 Japanese tier VIII premium for blitz! However, it will likely be another anime collaboration. Whatever happens, i expect to see something happen with the Japanese tech tree, it really needs some attention! Any devs care to chime in and drop a hint?

How are they impossible to add in blitz? Sure they might be large, but the hit skins everyone has along with the ease of switching to prammo would be their weakness. Durp guns at high tiers are not unheard of now thanks to the T49 and KpfPz 70.

Yes, but jap heavies are not good for game balance. Incredible armor, prammo with more damage instead of pen, and the ability to do damage to anything is ridiculous. It's no fun at all for anybody else.

New to tier X? Here’s the meta, with the all new tier x tier list.

Not impossible, but the devs definitely won't bring them to blitz.

You're thinking of the Heavy Tank No. 6 camo. It wasn't a skin for a tiger, it was a separate tank. It is a non-weeb Kuro. Since we already have that, I doubt we will get No. 6 at all :( .

Well I hope that the re selling of the Valkyrie tanks doesn't end up being the actual Japanese special content from the Game show thing :D

Good point Tomio, I hadn't thought of that. I'll remain hopeful with you. They did just introduce Chinese TDs to PC, and creating a Japanese TD line should be even easier considering what's out there in terms of designs, as I pointed out in Blartch's thread.

I don't use mods, but I would love one that let me put regular Japanese camos on my Kuro. It's probably not even possible, but I would love it if it were.

Everyone always says “they can’t.” When referring to adding the Japanese superheavies. Why not? The entire Chinese TD line that was just added didn’t even exist in blueprints, WG did it anyway. Helsing and Dracula were obviously OP, WG added them anyway. 

 

To be completely honest, the likelyhood of the IJA Heavies coming is much higher after the rebalance. The OI Exp no longer gets the glorious 100mm, the OI has reduced rear hull armor that can actually be penned... most of the armor is flat anyway, so HEAT city. The only ones that pose a real issue to the game anymore are the Type 4 and Type 5.

Jap heavies are too "Heavy" for the fast pace of Blitz.

This is what I've heard Wargaming staff say in person, as well as every post online, social media, etc.

 

They have many other things they could bring into the game before they ever give in to the few and do this.
