VALKYRIA CHRONICLES NOT COMING TO EU & NA SERVERS


In response to the recent feedback from the community in regards to the Valkyria Chronicles tanks that were recently introduced on the ASIA server, Wargaming have commented to reassure the EU and NA communities that the tanks will not be coming to their server. This news is probably welcome by a vast majority of the community, but some will be disappointed from the decision no doubt.

Mr.Conway from EU Community Team;
Just to clarify this for Quickybaby and all of you: We have no plans to release any of these tanks on the EU server.

This is of course something we considered, but judging by the feedback we have seen from the EU server, the majority of you don't want to have these "fantasy tanks" available here.

Please do however remember that this is a game and that we have no aspirations to be a historical tank simulator.

The_Chieftain from NA Community Team;
Any time I’ve asked about the VC tanks on NA, I’m happy to say, I’ve been told they are not in the pipeline.

POLISH PREMIUM TANK - PANTHER AUSF.G PUDEL


The First Polish tank has been added to the Supertest server, the premium Tier 6 Panther Ausf.G Pudel. Also taking the crown of the best looking panther to date.

The tank is a sample of the most mass modification of the German tank Panther - Pz.Kpfw. V Panther Ausf.G. Two German tanks Panther Ausf.G. Were captured by the Poles on August 2, 1944 during the Warsaw Uprising. The rebels painted national colors and other emblems on the tanks, which is the distinctive element of the tank in the game. The tank became known under the nickname "Poodle" (in the original Pudel).
