So in patch 9.21 on WoT PC the Death Star is being replaced by the FV217 Badger. DS will be a collector's item (like Type 59). I'm wondering if WG will do the same with Blitz at some point... Any thoughts?

Kill it.  Kill it with FIRE!

 

Regardless of my prejudice against the 183 I’d love them to swap it for the Badger just because it’s much cooler looking.  And the magic appearance of a turreted TD at the end of the line never made sense to me.


The point of the game is to win.  The purpose of the game is to have fun.  They are not mutually exclusive.

183 has a turret but it only reverses 45 degrees to each side...probably doesn't count. However, the 183 was the only real reason I want down the Brit TD line, so if they remove the 183 then i become sad. :(

The best ending for a heavy, slow lumbering line of tank destroyers is a glass cannon with a turret hue.

I think that was one of the main reasons WG wanted to replace it...

A tank the WG will never make avalible for sale again, or will only give out once in a blue moon (M60, Type 59, E25, etc.)

PC also has a constant influx of premiums which are completely better than their tech tree counterparts.  Blitz is balanced like PC was before the Czechs and Skorpion GG came out and it's better for it.

If they do replace 183, I’m all in to get Death Star before it’s gone

So i made submitted a ticket to wg saying exactly this:

People are consistently complaining about the death star being way to big of an alpha gun and too overpowered. I feel guilty as to how i play the tank and people dont like it. So i was wondering about the fv217 badger in replacement. Is that a tank that developers would be willing to change for better game balance and satisfaction? If not, please explain why.

Their response on my ticket the next day:

 

 

The technique in the game is balanced. Equality of opportunity is not equality in technical characteristics(TC). If any statistical technique starts to deviate from the balance, its TC's will be revised and changed.

At this moment, this tank has no serious deviation in the overall game balance. Please, note that each tank has its strengths and weaknesses, and each battle requires a specific combat strategy.

Then she does her closing statements to contact her and stuff. 

But to summarize: THE FV215B 183 WILL REMAIN IN THE GAME. (YAY)

It’s because some people in this game just HAVE to complain about a tank to let there anger out. And they do it on the 183, and it gets very annoying, because it’s not that OP.

The Death Star is fine and has a place in the game. It does not need a nerf.

The problem arises when there are more than 3 of any TD on a team in a high tier match. It creates a stagnant game play where every other class is hesitant to do their jobs. Lights and meds don't want to scout or flank. Heavies don't want to push.

The root problem is the overall balance of the tank types per team. In my opinion the teams should be layed out in the following way.

Lights. 2 max
Mediums. 3 max
Heavies. 3 max
Tank Destroyers. 2 max

The problem is tank balance per team, it isn't the Death Star. The Death Star is simply hated the most because it's the one that hits you the hardest.

Just my two cents.

Rest in Peace CJ.  You will be missed.
