Much better way to do this than the old 10% bonus for the entire month.

I hope not. Do you really want more newbies and noobs in high tier battles?

It was probably copy-pasted from  the previous TotM the ARL 44...

It is really nice that there is every month a special tank you get informed about, but: Does anyone really read the full article?

I mean, they put a lot of work in something, that just a few people read.

I saw a poll about the Twitter quiz participation the last week and I would bet that the result would also fit for "Tank of the Month".

By the time this article reaches the masses, most of them have already bought, played, and sold both tanks.

i had some good times with the M6, I know how it works, so i don't read the article. But those whoare planning to buy it, and start the heavy line, it might be very useful.

I would like to know this aswell seeing I currently already own the T1-heavy with all but the upgrade to M6 researched which is at half of the way. So for me going to the M6 and being able to buy it at a discount would be sweet before actually purchasing the tank and paying full price for it (would miss out on 125% credit income days though).

wtf is this shit, so last month ppl raged why only +10% income so now you make it 125% it sounds better its the same shit. no one will buy these tanks for this, if anyone already owns them theyll notice a slight difference in credit making. tank of the month should encourage buying the tank (make it cheaper or make it generate more xp so you won't have to grind with stock). the idea that +25% income is somehow much more appealing then +10% is plain wrong,

this is what we're having now:
From the 1st to the 15th August, you can earn 125% of your normal credit revenue on the T1 tank.  From the 16th of August to the 31st, you can earn 125% credits on the M6 tank!

So, the tank of the month is actually a tank of the half-month/fortnight?

Reported to the European Advertising Standards Authority (EASA) for inaccuracy. :Smile_great:

It is a comparably small bonus, but for quite a long time, so I am quite happy with it. 25% better earning can means something like 45% better profit?
Example with made up numbers:
average game - 15k income, 7k repair bill+ammo -> profit 8k
With 25% bonus - 18.75k income, 7k repair+ammo -> profit 11.75k -> 46.875% better profit.

Sure, it will be different number depending on the ratio of average income and repair+ammo bill, but it will be always higher then 25%.

Its still very little. Idk at least for me it is not worth it, I can't imagine anyone grinds this now for this abysmal bonus. I like trying out new tanks, last month I was at BDRg1B when the month hit so I was very disappointed to find I get only +10% income on ARL44, no discount on the price. This +25% income is not enough for me to grind it, rather roll some other tanks I already own for the money, meanwhile other bonuses would encourage ppl not just grinding for silver to try them out.

15k income for T1 is bad, 25-30k (depending on win/lose) is normal, and 35-40k is not uncommon, and 25% of 30k is a nice bonus :)

(i still thingk 25% ain that great, but 25% is worth the effort, 10% is clearly not...)

This is great news other than, it started yesterday and was posted this morning (Today, 06:22) so, that's one day less in playing and the worse part about it is, I don't have one of either of them, sucks for me. Good for those that have it, sucks for those that don't. I guess my only way to make anything from this Special is to, find these tanks in battle and destroy them. :Smile-playing:
Great Special for you players that have these tanks. Now, get out and that money. Have fun and enjoy this boost of income. :Smile_great:
