This seems unlikely. They would be removing historical tanks...what? Why remove content that they spent time developing too- it costs more money to gold tech tree lines if there are more tanks in the line too. Why lower revenue (looking at that 183 line). Then again, WG is not seemingly rational with many of their decisions

I love a lot of those tanks!! If they take all those out, it will be a huge mistake I'm my opinion!

They have removed tech tree tanks numerous times in the past and you can still play them if you have them in your garage.  

 

My recommendation for tanks they are removing:

If you like it, don't sell it.  Ever.  Exceptions no longer work for tech tree tanks.

If you used to have it and liked it, buy it back.

If you don't have it yet, but were interested in picking it up, grind it out as soon as you can.

 

For me, I had been putting off grinding out the Sherman Firefly.  I guess that just selected what I'm working on next.

Though they did want to make a slimmed down version for mobile with less power. Maybe that's part of it.

It isn't necessary for you to be a tool in every post.  A simple "what tech tree tank has been removed?" would have worked.

This just seems highly suspect. I can understand it from the standpoint of wanting a more paired-down game for mobile, but that would have been a decision before adding the content, which required work and money spent. There does not seem to be a legitimate reason for WG to put more work into removing content and reorganizing the setup of the game if there's no profit incentive. The best reasoning I can come up with is that this may reduce the time it takes for new players to get to higher tiers, where they will suck and want to spend money to buy premium tanks or skip past certain tanks in the mistaken belief that it will help them enjoy the game more. This would be damaging to the fabric of the game, to the retention rate of newer players, and hard to justify with evidence supporting the predicted player behavior.

Thanks SD.

 

Last year when I was rehabbing lower tier stats using wotbstars (RIP) I had identified a lower tier tank that was no longer available.  Since I had previously played it, I used an exception to get it back. 

 

I dug into this further, and after reviewing the tanks I retrieved through exceptions, it seems I was mistaken about the initial availability of the tank.  I withdraw my initial statement.

 

However, my brother, who plays on console, has stated that tanks removed from their tech trees (ex. WT auf. E100) remain in their users garages.  That, of course, is no guarantee that the Blitz development and management team would make the same choice.

wth. I really hope this isn’t true. It would be right in line with the great derp gun purge they just executed though. Blitz is getting big and they’re trying to save space. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled  it multiple times on my device to perform updates and manage storage space. I agree that this would be very damaging to the game as a whole if it’s true. It will mean a drop in the quality of content, gameplay, player quality, everything. It is somewhat unbelievable they would destroy the still newish Firefly line though, so maybe there is still hope.

But, judging by the past when all other rumors of bad changes have been true (prammo nerf, outrageous nerfs and buffs etc.) I’m going to start preparing. Grind to all the tanks being retired but kept in as premiums (as has been done several times on PC) and finishing all tanks I’ve driven that will be removed (60% and aced). Yep I’m sold. This is real. It will happen soon.

Yep, especially the German tech tree one, you can see they covered the section between the Leopard and Pz IV

Red is "ELIMINATED", yellow is Premium and orange is event-only according to Blitznews

 

I guess they're trying to simplify low tier and whoever owned the other tanks already get to keep them.

It's obviously an edit. It's not an official Wargaming made leak, but that doesn't disqualify the information automatically as they could have gotten it from an official source and edited it to make it visually presentable.

One possibility is that they’re removing tank models so they can increase the number of maps without making the client download larger...
