Saw the quickybaby review of this tank the other night, will be useful for a few weeks until it gets hit with the nerf bat.

Any info about price?

I assume it will come in certain packages (like Fury did) with gold and other stuff

 

Saw a few videos and if the price is right I might even get it. Looks like a fun tank.

The link at the top of the article goes to this page which states 5,000 Gold. http://worldoftanks.eu/encyclopedia/vehicles/france/f69_amx13_57_100_grandfinal/

It's roughly the same price as the Panther 8.8 which is £20.10 currently.

 As if that isn’t enticing enough, it also comes with a stylish WGL decal on its turret. Not that this French beauty would need any make-up to look great, of course…

 

Are you bloody serious? Make-up is used to make something look better. A WGL sticker on a tank DOES NOT MAKE IT LOOK BETTER! It's more free advertising! It's like having a tattoo of the place where you work!

Will you give it out on other events ( such as the one in hungary in may?). It would be nice to get some nice stuff there as well.

Thanks in advance,

your milk cow.

This 5% additional camo rating is a very poor choice. Intuitively a plain colored tank with a huge white stripe should have less camo than a regular plain colored tank.
A better solution would be to give it a hidden high camo rating and just state no camo paint can be applied.
Really bad choice imho.

I hope you can remove that  WGL decal, because it makes that tank very ugly (at least for me) or at least allow to replace that WGL text and icon with french icon or other decal. I get it is unique and just for this event, but would be nice to customize it to your liking because not everyone likes such white lines and advertisement on it.

I doubt, most likely they will leave at it is. At least all russian youtubers were talking, that it won`t be sold after this anymore, read it as - will be sold only in special events for special price, most likely on every WGL event .. so I doubt it will be changed in its looks.

Will it be possible to buy with gold in garage? And will it be just a special vehicle sold only during the event?

 

I think there will be 2 vehicles: AMX 13 57 and AMX 13 57 GF and the first one will be sold after the event too... is that truth?

if they let us buy the tank alone for 5k gold i will buy it, but if they put it in some kind of stupid pack alongside 180 days of premium of 25k gold i'll just pass it and never buy it...

It says no emblems either, but the emblem is located on the hull and not the turret... would make no sense to not let us change at least that :facepalm:

I really really hope this defacing of a tank is a huge mistake because i sure as hell dont want to drive around in an advertising billboard.

 

If its not a mistake (as in not being able to remove that spam) i hope wargaming will pay attention to how this thread will develop and never repeat such an incredible feat of fail marketing ever again.

 

Edit: Making a tank unique by giving it decals that wont be on other tanks is a very good idea but only when it fits those tanks in a way that fits the game.

The fury tank having its name on the barrel and the equipment on it work because you would expect a ww2 tank to have that stuff on it same for the T-34-85 "Rudy" when it comes out.

I should not have to explain why a billboard tank in a combat setting is just a very bad idea.
