WG talked about this somewhere. There will be a legacy vehicle in your player history that is not actually a playable vehicle in the game, the tier 10 Obj 430 that currently exists. Your stats in the 430 will still show up as tier 10 430 stats, even though no such vehicle can be played after the patch. 

It's gonna be called 430B i believe. But does that mean that T10 430 MOE will go on this 430B ? Or will it transfer to T9 430 ? 

 

It would sounds like the T9 430 will have a clean sheet when 9.22 hits.

So if I don't finish the grind then I am moved to an other tree without a tier 10. 10/10

Yes. It's going to suck if you just miss the 430 before the patch.

They do not mention where the XP on the 430v2 goes like they did with the T-10/257 change. Does the accumulated XP stay with the v2 no matter what? If so, then that could mean having to start back over on the T-44 line if you want the 430U.

Damn I dont think I will make it time to at least unlock the 430. I still have to get the engine plus the 260k exp for the actual tank.

You've got about a week. The patch will be available for download tomorrow, but they won't activate it until around Wednesday.

I missed out on the FV's, but I'm ready for this one. I've moved on to grinding credits for the 113 & 5A On Track event in mid-February. :)

FUCK and I wasted the Xmas credit reduction for the 5a already.

Well, it's still not as bad as missing out on the Foch and FV's. You can still get it. It's just going to take a lot longer. :(

One thing remained which I don't understand:

430 picture, 6. fact:

Marks of Exellence, statistics and medals will remain on the tier X 430.

But on which tank exactly?

430 will be a tier 9 tank, 430U will be the tier 10 replacement.

So which tier 10 430? We don't get it as a new premium like the 215fv (at least I didn't find that kind of information).

Anyone?

the tank will stay on service record the same way WTE100 stats did

meaning that if you play the 430 badly now, the stats will be preserved to shame you forever :^)

Didn't the WTF100 stats migrate to the Grille 15?

I just checked and I'm wrong about the Grille 15 stats.

The Lorraine 40t stats did move to the Batchat AP. I've never owned a BC AP, but have 129 games in it according to my stats. So, it does happen. WG isn't known for consistency, I suppose.

Eh I guess i'll get a discounted 113. Btw I did not care about the Foch and the Deathstar. Not pain-grinding those lines was worth it more.

Doesn't seem to be the case. On the test server at least, 430 stats turn into 430U stats. 

Basically fv/cax style switch.

Will the 257 have a new 100% crew? Or does the t10 crew get trained on that and t10 left crewless?

I read on the armoredpatrol comment section that the 257 side armor was ninja buffed to 45mm for release. Can someone confirm this?

The 120 vs 122 over match delineation did seem a little convenient and arbitrary.

Absolutely.  Most of the whining about RU bias is probably just bullshit pubbyspeak, but the prevalence of tanks that cannot be overmatched by 120mm NATO rounds is one glaring example of RU bias that truly does exist.  The absurdity of tanks like the STRV 103 being essentially immune to something like a 50B or Super Conq, but an IS can shit all over them?

In other news, I am pretty hyped about my new 257 that I'm going to use to spread socialist propaganda all over the free world with.

"In the Tech Tree, the announced vehicles will be marked with a special symbol in order to inform players that corresponding vehicles will be added in the nearest updates"

Well that clears things up... 

And yes,  257 hull "insignificantly" improved armor. 

(from rita's)

The comment I read claimed it was buffed from 40 to 45 mm, that means immune to everything below 136 mm will bounce. It is still not a confirmation, but based on the wording of the announcement I am pretty sure they did it.

It was already retarded before.

hmm can´t even find a thing about this on the russian blogs. I think we have to wait till tomorrow to be sure. 

Anyway. Having it not overmatchable by 122mm guns is somewhat a good thing for the balance. It is just stupid that the mighty russian 122mm boom stick will autopen it ,while NATO 120mm guns have a hard time doing dmg. In this regard there is at least a little balance now.

Balancing something that was seen broken by making it better to make it "fair" is not really balancing though is it

T-44-100 becomes the tier 8 Cromwell B, but with better gun handling!  Look at that power to weight and terrain resistance!

Yeah. I don't understand the T-44(-100) buffs. I mean, tier 8 mediums suck. So, they could use a buff, but why make one tank so much better than its peers in almost every way. Mobility, gun handling, armor, DPM, etc etc etc.
