Is it just me or does the Panther M10 look very bad, especially in relation to its price? I mean, I know premiums are supposed to be worse than elite vehicles of their Tier, but the Panther M10 is comparable to the stock Panther. It's slightly faster, the armour is slightly improved, but apart from that it's a stock Panther. Even its moneymaking capability is underwhelming, as many players saw on the test server.

150mm of penetration to deal with Tier 8s? I'm surprised people even break even with it when they're thrown into high-tier games.

I've heard that it's fun to drive on the actual server, so it's not really a moneymaker per se, but rather a tank that you play for fun with the added bonus of making a few credits while you're at it.

For this price I will take my wife for a dinner of her life and we will eat ourselves sick with some cool sea food.

I have nothing against your premium stuff WG, I own a few cheaper ones already but if you would consider lowering the price to 50% of this offer, I would actually buy these too.

But with the current prices your premium stuff is just over my "I give a F*ck" (Pardon my French) threshold...Too bad...for you I mean :Smile_Default:

Cheers.

From previous news about Early December Gift Shop:
"you will be able to get some vehicles which you haven’t even seen in the gift shop before and some that are no longer normally available for purchase in the game!"

- still patiently waiting as this second week offer is not what is described above...

Or massive discount on 6 months / 1 year premium. At least it would guarantee that those players would stick around for the next year for sure.

But i like the packages.

Note: the Panther M10 should always carry the information that it is a war crime tank.

T34 package: 12000g (T34) + 300g (slot) + 1250g (premium) + 1500g + 30x50g (consumables) = 16550g @ 50€. It's a benefit of 2050g since 14500g costs 49.95.
M-Panther Package: 5750g (MP10) + 300g (slot) + 1250g (premium) + 20x50g (consumables) = 8300g @ 26€. It's a benefit of a mere 1.25€ (correlation used for the gold-price).


WG starts to learn it, that the packages should be cheaper than the sum of the components. Still it's peanuts and I'm not tempted at all to invest any money in this, let alone in WG itself. A discount of around 5% isn't something you should be proud of.

On the plus side, better value than buying the items separately, on the downside the value is made up of padding like gold consumables no one sane uses in randoms, garage slots that you'd normally buy half off, and short term premium time. Sadly this still makes it best best gift shop offer in recent memory.

Quote

Just to give you a small tease of the events to come – you will be able to get some vehicles which you haven’t even seen in the gift shop before and some that are no longer normally available for purchase in the game! It will be a really fun month for everyone who remembers to check the gift shop out regularly!

And by "month" I guess you mean "the last week, maybe" since this offer runs to the 22nd and we're yet to see non-standard tanks.

and that crime should be? clever camouflage that didn't work out the way it was planned? how is it a warcrime to model your tank in such a way that it looks like the tank of an enemy so you can gain victory against an enemy that outnumbers you by a large margin.

it was actually rather clever, not that it worked but still it was skillfully done.
