This famous Tier VIII American medium tank has been present in the game for a long time now, and it has earned a reputation as a tough and reliable beast. Now it is reborn and waiting for your orders!
Really? I've heard this tank called many names, some justified, some not, but never ever have I heard anyone call it this :p...

Otherwise, seems to be a decent update :).

yeah, "limited" time, making people think that nobody will be able to buy them again, just like type 59, kv-5, pz B2 or 38H, but the truth is that you plan to put the option of buying it through the game.

Also, even if you have gold, you need to spend extra money by buying through gift shop to get it, nice way to get more $$$... you could say it's to "avoid having the game flooded with the same op tank" (as if you didn't test it 10000000 times by now to realize if it's op like type 59 was) but I think we all know the truth

"The famous Tier VIII pseudo-medium de-facto undergunned heavy tank has been present in the game for a long time now and has earned a reputation of tough tank unless your enemy has more than one brain cell and knows how to hit ridiculously big weakspots!
Now it is nerfed to oblivion and ready for fail." - fix'd that for you.

But with all seriousness - header says NEW premium tanks while SP is anything BUT new. Post-nerf version is not all that different from previous one (the main nerf were not armour nerfs but changes in accuracy mechanics which happened before the nerf) so yeah, no reason to call it new.

And I see that magical T-44-85 didn't make it, right? What is it, was it too undergunned, like SP actually IS?

Yes....and then you nerfed it beyond all hope and it's currently a shadow of it's former self.....

So not exactly a good sales pitch if you ask me :smile:

That SuperPersher must really be worth its price... if it cost around 5 bucks maybe.

Why do I get the feeling, that the chi-nu-kai is too expensive. I wanted to buy one, but with that price of 9euro, i would be far better if I buy a month premium. At this point the premium japanese vehicle does not look like a deal to me.

Sadly we don't have much control over the conversion rate between the Russian Ruble and the American Dollar.

The gift shop is an alternative way for players to purchase premium tanks. If we only sold tanks in-game then there would be no option for someone to send one to a friend or family member. The two new tanks added with update 8.9 will later be available via the in-game store, likely when the next patch is released.

I'm not too angry about the conversion rate since everyone is robbing the Europeans. It would however make me look at WG in a slightly better way.

I also think that people haven't realized that WG Paris is only a puppet obeying orders from the puppeteer (WG HQ).

Are you all kidding?! You asked "à cors et à cris" (just translate) new prem tanks and cheapper (that is now done) and you found a way to whine? This community is sick.

We are talking about the price difference, and i think that a price of an 100% virtual "tank" must be the same for all WG customers.
Or maybe we are paying the shipping costs, that explains everything  :trollface:

All too expensive for what they are. Also, a warning to potential buyers, the Type 64 DOES get tier 10 games.

SP seems like a bargain...27 euros for T8 tank that earns you decent money and trains your crews.Hell I might even get myself one.

I knew there was something I didn't like about this tank but I had forgotten what it was. Thanks for reminding me! I'll put my credit card away now...
