holy foch! 70%+ for a PREMIUM TANK?!

Edit: Out of curiosity: Is the MBP really THAT bad?

Edit2: Seems they corrected it to T4 Matilda, lol. But MPB for -50% wouldn't be bad imo, they are very rare.

Tiger P is the tank that everybody forgets in the events. I think this is descent to discount it now.

I know people whine about every event regardless, but this is rubbish, not even a discount on consumables or equipment?

At least if you'd have put barracks slots on 50%, we'd know you cared enough to bother with a proper insult.

Edit:
Well now that's a bit more like it!  Sorry to be that whiny guy...

Pity I have to tell my mate that his Piger isn't going to be pooing money everywhere now though.   :Smile_confused:
