Well, which one is better - Matilda BP or IV? I will not use it as crew trainer or farmer - just for fun/stats/missions from time to time... 

 

AFAIK BP is slower (terrible HP/ton ratio), but better gun... Which one you will buy, if you must chose between the two?

 

And yes, I know regular Matilda or Churchill III is better...

I can't seem to find the offer in the premium shop. Am I missing something. I can see the tanks, but they have no 30 days of time symbol on them. Am I being stupid here? It was billed as being available at 6:10?

Do something about your paying partner guys, Ultimatepay sucks!!!! I tried 8 times since morning to buy one of the packages with a Matercard credit card, every time the transaction fails. I checked with my bank, there's nothing wrong with my credit card, only your stupid payment engine fails.

 

Anyone else having problems with credit card payments?

1500 + 500( garage ).

If you view the offer on the Promotions page of the GiftShop, the tanks are offered at simply 75% off their normal price and without premium. But if you go back to the GiftShop Homepage, they are listed there too and there the price is different - there you are buying the 30 days prem (rather than the tank), and getting the tank & slot for free.

 

And which is best. For these prices (either with the prem from gift shop or 75% bought in game from the tech tree) why not get them all? If you have to choose:

The Valentine 2 will get you a good amount of wins (certainly above 50%), and will excel at damage and kills (cuz it's always top tier).

The Matilda IV will likely get you a better win rate than the Val, but not as high damage and kills

The Matilda BP will likely get you most wins, damage and kills out of all of them, as it's a little monster. It used to be bad but they buffed it (with an armoured colour, super thick gun mantlet etc) and now it's just ace.

 

This is based on my stats with all 3:

Valentine 2 - 84 games; 60% WR; 2.64 damage ratio; 1.68 kill ratio; 36.9% survival rate

Matilda IV - 147 games; 65% WR; 2.46 damage ratio; 1.5 kill ratio; 38.78% survival rate

Matilda BP - 97 games; 67% WR; 3.17 damage ratio; 1.7 kill ratio; 46.39% survival rate

 

That compares to my global stats - 54.61% WR; 1.06 damage ratio; 1.27 kill ratio; 22.96% survival ratio, although those figures are a little misleading in comparison to these prem fighting / sniping support tanks as I tend to play mostly active scout / skirmisher, which tends to win games but not with big damage and often with me dead :-) (Also I never platoon).

 

Other thing to consider is Matilda BP is the least reliant on prem ammo out of the 3 as it's got a good gun, so it will almost certainly make the most credits. They also all have low fire risk engines, so if you're flush and have preventative maintenance on the driver, you can get away without a fire ex and use a prem consumable (to really stomp everyone).

 

It's a close call, but even if the battles I've fought on these 3 tanks are too low to draw any absolute conclusions, I still reckon the BP is best of three. And it's as cute as a button.

 

EDIT - and btw, they all have ace camo factors (see link below), so I just run them with vents, binocs, camo net, and painted camo pattern - so they are also cheap & easy on equipment.

I bought Matilda BP. It is fun, when top tier, but not so, when you face KV-1S and ARL44, and you will face t6 a lot, unfortunately...

 

Considering gifting myself 30 days premium plus another Matilda BP(free) from another acc, and opening it after gold price went to normal...

Ok, serious question:

 

What happens if I buy a Valentines gift pack in the shop, send it to my friend, and that friend REFUSES the gift? Will the gift 1) Be "unpacked" and the tank put into MY account, or 2) Will I be able to send it as a gift to a new person? In case of 2) can that person be myself?

 

The Gift shop says this: "The recipient has the choice of whether to accept a gift or refuse it. If the recipient refuses the gift, or  does not respond within30 days, the gift will be automatically returned to the sender's account."

However, that does not really answer if the refused gift is unpacked into my account, or if I can gift a second person.

I was looking at this offer and was going to get either the Matilda IV or the Black Prince ( I already have a Valentine). Buy a month of premium account a get a free tank, that's quite good.

 

However, looking at the Offer of the Month I see you get 3,500 gold and a month of premium account. If you use 2,500 of the gold to buy another month of premium account, it leaves you with 1000 gold. You can buy 2 of the tanks on offer with the 1000 gold and have some change left. So I was thinking of buying the Offer of the Month but then I realised I don't particularly want the Matilda or Black Prince.

cazy Netherlands, to my knowledge 10 euro is 1.5 pack of cigaretts or so and almost a full crate of beer (yes 24 bottles), when disounted it actually goes for 10, but mostly about 13 :P

You may be right, but you forgot about the free garage slots which would (AFAIK, /me noob) each cost 300 gold on top.

Well, premium Valentine and Matildas are not very good tanks, but discounts were crazy. If you hate them (slow, low pen) you can always sell them later without regret...

 

Delayed receiving of gifts worked well - was compensated full gold plus slot, because I have already Valentine II and Matilda BP. Not that bad :)
