ASIA Server has recently received two new Premium tanks: Nameless and Edelweiss, two tanks from Valkyria Chronicle. While Wargaming has mentioned before they are exclusive to ASIA Server, there has been several questions raised after Quickybaby stream with these two tanks in particular.
While there has been some players who expressed they wanted these tanks, feedback from the rest of the community generally has been negative in regards of Wargaming introducing fantasy tanks into World of Tanks.
In order to make things clear, MrConway has published the following in the official EU forum:
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.
I’m pleased to read this, mainly because I’m quite OK for Wargaming to release paper tanks, but I was never OK with Wargaming starting to introduce fantasy/cartoon/anime tanks.
But what about Wargaming NA? Unfortunately I don’t have any confirmation on their stand yet, but if I get more information about it, I’ll definitely post about it.
Update #1 – 22:50
Quick update! NA is not getting Valkyria Chronicle tanks also. The information comes from The_Chieftain in the NA forum.
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.
