This past May saw us test changes to the KV Had they proven agreeable, they would have been applied to other preferential tanks. As the feedback and testing showed, the reason you take these tanks onto the battlefield or bring them into your Garage in the first place is their preferential status and unique characteristics. In response to your comments, we went back to the drawing board to work on another round of adjustments. Here's a look at where the current setup is falling short and how the upcoming changes address those areas. We'll kick-off the preferential tank revision by tweaking combat parameters. We originally set these parameters so tanks can play comfortably and competitively in Tier VIII-IX battles, where they are weaker than other machines in combat given their stats.
When accelerated training is turned off, premium tanks can accumulate combat experience which can be converted to free experience with gold. Premium tanks also benefit from a combat experience multiplier.
Preferential Matchmaking Vehicles in Update 1.2
The performance of premium tanks varies greatly from tank to tank. Many such as the IS-6 or Valentine II perform less well than regular tanks of their tier, and thus have preferential matchmaking which prevents them from facing vehicles of a much higher tier. Generally, most premium tanks fall somewhere between stock and fully upgraded vehicles of their tier. Many premium tanks such as the T34 and Type 64 get standard matchmaking and are expected to perform equally as well as corresponding tanks of their tier.
Premium tanks' gold values are displayed on their respective pages. A premium tank's credit value is equal to its gold value times Tanks displayed below with a gold icon next to their name are available for purchase either in-game or in the gift shop. Tanks with a blue star next to their name are gift tanks, tanks removed from the store, or any other tank that is in the game but not otherwise available for purchase in most cases.
Some of these tanks appear in gift shop bundles from time to time, and others are available through other purchase methods see specific articles for details.

I bought in when I make almost battles very op tank after a year it got a trash and now you want to make this tank unplayable?
These changes make the avg pen change too.
It it also means that if the maximum pen is higher, you got better chances on penetrating a better armoured vehicle. Same for lower, it guarantees that you pen more too. So, take it SuperPershing for example: Remember, still in Supertest. These are further changes, I think they will bring even more changes tbh.
If anything they should just increase the hit points of the JT 88 to around and buff the gun handling. They should increase jt88 penetration. Where is the former decision that the buff of the JT 88? Did they give up to buff its hitpoint from to ?
World of tanks premium preferential matchmaking
The vehicle receives significant improvements to all characteristics crucial for tank destroyers. Getting matched at the same position for several battles in a row slows progression and degrades the overall experience for all vehicles.
As you can understand, to find the optimal solution will take some time about half a year and we ask for your patience. We have already laid down a plan and work on the matchmaker is underway.
We will give more information when we have it in a separate article. Share on social networks or discuss on the forum. Video Screenshots Art Renders Soundtrack.
Failed to log in. Tanks with preferential status are likely to get matched into two- or one-tier battles, where their status combined with combat parameters does more harm than good. Improve the experience for preferential tanks while keeping the preferential matchmaking parameter and their unique characteristics intact.
