I'm not sure why they never released the slugger as a prem tank, would be much easier to balance

Slugger... you mean the Jackson?

No, I may got it slightly wrong, but I meant this

That's the M36B1, which is a Jackson turret + gun on a Sherman hull (as there weren't enough Jackson hulls). It's saved for when WG wants to implement additional hulls, so it won't be implemented. Slugger is just another nickname for the regular M36.

Apparently, 'marketing has plans for the tank and it's out of the developers hands'.

Thought I heard it was "too hard to play" (hard vehicles get a lot of whine, as a lot of premium tank buyers can't play them properly).

 

Anyway, on-topic. There's not a lot of TD's left for the US, unless WG wants to implement Cromwell B-style carbon copies. SilentStalker made a list a while ago. Out of these:

- T88 -> No derp premiums.

- M36B1 and T35/T35E1 -> Saved for extra hulls.

- M56 Scorpion -> "too hard to play" or whatever excuse.

- T28 Concept -> Already a reward tank.

 

Which leaves:

- T24 -> Prototype T40. Tier 3.

- T42 -> Prototype T67. Tier 4.

- T53 -> Fixed 90mm on Sherman hull. Tier 5.

- T4 -> Pretty much fictional. Highly unlikely. Tier 6?

- T78 -> Chaffee hull with Jackson turret. Pretty much fictional, as the Chaffee didn't exist yet. Tier 6/7.

- 90mm Hellcat -> Elite Hellcat without the top turret. Tier 6.


 

So uhm, best we can hope for seems the T53.

I got this quote from Armoured Patrol. It's... two or three days old? Also, we're getting Kannonenjagdpanzer soon (assuming it survives the test this time) and I don't see why that thing would be any easier to play. 30mm armour at the best on tier 8 (so still basically autopen even for HE) with a similar gun (with worse traverse arc).

Interestingly, even though it's a gift and not a true premium, BT-7A breaks this rule.

Oh I got the email Quaksen, I've been waiting for this moment since QuickyBaby hinted it'd be out this month. Going to buy it now.

I have the scorpion, and am displeased.

Wish I had not spent the money.  I don't even run it anymore.

Great gun, but its so darn vulnerable.

Every time you shoot, you HAVE to relocate.

And there is no way you can carry a team with this tank, imho.
