Nice that you compensate anyone who bought the tank before.

You think so? They sold it for real money and refund in gold. Good money earning strategy ;)

anyone who bought it accepted the price :-) any compensation is good customer service

Only need read a more and I found it

 

Should a player prefer a full refund, they must contact Customer Support, in which case the tank, gold and garage slot will be removed from their account.

Do you think that they have done this because no one was buying the tank at it's high price?

I don't understand how could WG realise only now that they should sell this tank 40% (!) cheaper... What is the test server for? Of course, they couldn't see purchase stats there but if the tank is bad, it is bad.

I really guess this way. I didnt see so many Panther 8,8 out there and im really playing a lot (25-30 games each day, 3-4 hours)

Interesting, 

First off a few people bought the tank. Secondly, that thing, I wont say it sucks but it has a ridiculously high skill cap, not everyone is capable of driving that tank therefore not everyone will like it. Money isn't the primary issue here WG. If people find that a tank is easy to master, compared to other premiums or its fun to drive, people will buy it regardless of the price. But if a tanks stats are way too mediocre then.. regardless of the price not many will purchase it. Ofc the only thing you have going is that it is one of the few German medium tank prems and the only tier 8 German med premium. 

A small alteration in the tanks stats would get its sales up.

Just my opinion.

A test server is still only a test server - the player portfolio differs and the statistics are only limited, because you don't have the vast numbers of games played on live servers. It can prevent some very big screw-ups, but fine tuning is sadly always dependent on live servers.

Hi.

I purchased this tank yesterday.. Make 9 battles on it. And 9 defeats. Win ratio 0%. Half of team are IX X. This tank maybe has 1500hp but has no armor and you die after 2 hits. Avrage dmg is 200-300. Its no problem to penetrate t34 from front.. Bit if you see IX or X.. Forget it. You dont have chances until you flank them from behind. Hehe good luck with that. Basically its Panther with 8.8 gun. Nothong more. Math making should be max to VIII tier. Maybe IX. But on X you just a Hp meat ball. Its good Wg decides to reduce prize for it. Cuz is not worth it to buy it at all. Usless on IX or X. Mm changes required.

Regards.

+1 to WG for realising the seriously overpriced Panther 8,8 isnt worth 41 Euros.

 

Seriously the FCM 50t is a better medium tank overall (& has limited MM!!!) and there was no real reason to buy a worse medium tank for the same price.

Plus you could train your german medium crews with 3 other much cheaper german premium meds.

 

Now there is a choice to buy a slightly worse medium for a much better price. Now it makes sense.

 

I ll probably catch one myself from the in game shop via gold when i get a 15% discount ;)

Luckily I didn't bought it. But I still doubt that it's worth buying. I will better wait for AMX CDC.

Nice, I might consider buying it now. It's nice that those who bought it before'll get compensated too.

But on the test server a player can test the paper stats of the specific tank. How fast it turns, how fast it accelerates, what's the gun "bloom", aiming speed, rate of fire and so on.

I will never buy a tank that I haven't tested before. Nobody from the super test cant tell me how good the specific premium tank is.
