...and seeing as my kids can't stop dropping hints about what they want Santa to bring, I thought of the traditional pressies from WG to us at this time of year and wondered what we might be getting this year (hint, hint  :blinky: ).

A quick list for those not as steeped in tank lore as some are;
  • Tetrarch - Simply brilliant, most fun you can have in Tier 2. Never likely to sell it. Fast, excellent gun, just don't expect it to turn and/or stop incoming fire...
  • T1E6 - Not my cup of tea, but can see the appeal. Certainly making use of the slot. Gun just a bit too weak in my 'umble opinion.
  • LTP - Not a Chrissie pressie, but thought I'd include it as it was a freebie. Made of finest KV-1S grade bouncinium, good enough at it's tier but got rid of it as don't really play many Tier 3 games.
So on to 2013; anyone care to speculate/ guess/ stab in the dark?

Oh, and the first person to mention the Type 59; you may feel a slight drowning sensation after I fashion a voodoo effigy based on your avatar and flush it down the loo..........

Oh we are full of the joy of the season today, aren't we??

Personally, hope it's a British Tetrarch  :glasses:

I would settle for some gold..............or some empty garage slots..........or pretty much any free stuff to be honest :smile:

How about a British Mk1 from WW1 in tier 1.........awesome.  :teethhappy:

well i for one read something about the new tier 1 jap would appear in all accounts with +1 garage slot and 100% crew

maybe that's the *christmas* tank, and we *might* get something for new year instead

I can't verify this of course


what i'm Hoping for: A French premium light tank

what i'm guessing: A british premium light tank

what's not gonna happen but i want anyway: german premium spg

Well, it's a guarentee that whatever we get there will be some complaining about it.

I'll accept anything with gratitude.

True I agree with the above statement, someone will find fault no matter what, how ungrateful people can be even when its free.
Thank you WG for giving us a xmas prezzie, I would much rather have something from the game that I like, rather than real life as I hate xmas.

I enjoyed the two free garage slots WG have given me already (The car thingy and the LTP)

I hope that it will be French LT. I have plenty of soviet ones and they are all useless now - after removal of t-50-2 there is no USSR LT used in competitive play (or even in non-random modes), so I don't need a great crew. And low-tier gifts excels mainly in training crews (additional daily-doubles during 'crew exp x2' event are very handy).  I haven't got single French premium tank, so small premium French LT would be nice addition to my garage.
  
I enjoyed Tetrarch the most from Christmas /new years' gifts. It is precious little tank, i will keep it forever. But it was given long time ago, and the latest gifts (t1e6 and t7) aren't as fun to drive in my opinion. So I am rather pessimistic about next one.

British Tetrarch would be my guess. A simple cut and past job done at the Xmas party once everyone is well bladdered.  :sceptic:

So it looks like we guessed right. A British Tetrarch, only without the gun.

 

Good grief Charlie Brown.......:facepalm:

I loved the Tetrarch, still play it frequently even though it has been nerfed a bit since it;s heyday. Enjoying the LTP too but wasn't a big fan of the T7 Car or the T1E6 .

 

I'm wishing for a Free Teir 2 OR 3 British tank but i'm guessing it'll probably be a French one as a few others have mentioned.  :izmena:

Any idea where you heard about the Jap Tier 1 + slot from Panda? Be intrigued if thats the case, two slots over Christmas (assuming the patch is released 23/12 as reported elsewhere)
