Today 11:00 General News Comments
Currently Tier 9 is the peak of a vehicle’s class development for medium tanks and tank destroyers in World of Tanks. Quite often players ask game developers whether they are going to introduce Tier 10 for these two classes of vehicles. It is about time to give the exact and precise answer to that question - Tier 10 Meds and TDs will most definitely be introduced!
At the moment new vehicles undergo a balancing process; therefore, it’s too early to speculate about final specifications of these long-awaited armored vehicles. However, it’s known that all Tier 10 Meds and TDs will retain the specific tech tree features which are particular for the nation they belong to.
