As I explore in my newest video, the T71 is a pretty good little scout with a 6-round drum loader and doesn't bleed the credits of a tank like the Chaffee. These poor Tier VI 'dedicated' scouts. What will happen to them if higher tiered, better performing, and cheaper-to-run tanks are released? 'Dustbin' springs immediately to mind.
I've said it so many times I'm beginning to bore of it, but new tanks DOES NOT equal new content. If Wargaming.net want to increase the longevity of World Of Tanks they really need to start thinking about how to freshen up the game without just adding new things to grind for. At some point, we can imagine, that every known, planned, and dreamed tank will have been considered and possibly put into the game. What will keep us interested, playing, and paying then? Hopefully their business plan extends beyond the hope everyone will just switch to World of Warplanes and forget about the fact World of Tanks is getting a bit dry.
