I have no idea, but if you are using your old xvm shortcut to go into the game, stop! use the regular game entry now.

Yah the news is a bit old, but I was doing some digging on the new German TD line ( ) in up coming 8.9

http://ftr.wot-news.com/2013/09/05/8...erman-td-line/


Tier 4 – Marder 38T (75mm PaK 40/3)



Tier 5 – Pz.Sfl.IVc (88mm FlaK 41 L/74)



Tier 6 – Nashorn (88mm PaK 43 L/71)



Tier 7 – Sturer Emil (128mm K40)



Tier 8 – Rheinmetall-Borsig Waffenträger (150mm L/29,5)



Tier 9 – Waffenträger auf Pz. IV (150mm PaK L/38)



Tier 10 – Waffenträger E-100 (150mm L/38 with autoloader)



(Yes - that IS the Jagdpanther E-100 gun as an AutoLoader! )

Picture of the new tree new line breaks off from Marder II

Actually that Marder 38t looks really interesting as well.

When I get a chance - selling the SP today - getting an E-25 and a Marder II to start spinning up a crew with the E-25 and JgdTiger 8.8 so I can run a new TD crew through two premium TDs and their base track.

I think I'll get more enjoyment out of the E-25 over the SP
My old Marder II has about 7K EXP sitting on it now - re-buy it with a 100% crew - train them up repair/repair/clutch breaking and wait for 8.9 to drop is my new - newer - newest plan.

Speaking of FTR, I enjoyed this little article.

Quote:
According to the eye-witness, the village was defended by a group of Soviet soldiers, led by a Lieutenant (the eye-witness remembers him well, as they played cards together). The squad’s anti-tank armament was composed of a single 45 mm AT gun. Against a number of tanks, a single AT gun isn’t much, and the village soon fell to the Germans. However, the Soviet gunner made his mark.

Nice of them to not put the 121 or the T-34-3 in the game - only in the gift shop - so you can't sell your Super P and put the money towards those eh?

I sold my Super P too. When it comes down to it, It is just pretty low on the list of tanks I enjoy playing.

Same used the SP to train the Pershing/Patton crew - then they are helping the T54E1 who are almost to the T57 (Which by the way is getting nerfed (confirmed now) in 9.0 along with the Foch 155)

That Tier 4 Marder uses the same gun as the Tier 3 FCM Pak 40?

New TD line to head up! I already have a crew! Unfortunately, I didn't come up through the Marder so depending on the rework, I may have to run a 350% crew in a tier 2.

I toyed with the same idea Papa - Jack the Ferd crew that is just about to tip its 4th skill - would be INSANE at tier 2

Ahh if I had disposable income it would be silly for a week or two.

Note to self... too much type - more play.

I have a couple of german TD crews that are on or near 3rd perk.

Something tells me the new line might be insane at Tier 2 if everyone does it
