Thankfully not in the premium store. This thing is OP as fek and would totally ruin tier 8 gameplay.. It sh1ts all over the other tier 8 122m premium clones.

They'll just take an existing (premium) tank, slap some fugly camo on it, buff the gun stats and lower the version number.  Et voila!

Another OP clan wars tank. Brings nothing valuable to the game whatsoever. 

 

Oh joy.

I must say i quite like the gun stats (ignoring the horrendous aim time and accuracy). Decent pen and damage by the looks of things. Looks like more troll armour on the sides though and im impressed by the mobility.

Just a shame that more people cant have one :P

And there MUST be a point when WG run out of tanks to stick together for more premiums?!

Want an IS-5 in your Garage? Start preparing for the upcoming event on the Global map now: find a clan in the Recruiting Station! to buy one.

 

Good job WG.

I hope they'll make more campaigns to get already existing vehicles then.

Like top 5k players can choose to get either E25 or T23E3 (I'm not sure what it's called) and the 5001-10k player can choose let's say T-15 or Locust.

Some players would get extra tanks then. Good players would get tons of gold.

Balancing department? Asleep probably. Not a very smart addition to a game, in the hands of skilled CW players, what chance we have against it? WG, I give you thumbs down for this one.

This event will last for 10 to 15 days and you guys expect them to give away 11k t8 tanks for free?  The last couple of events  had 4.5k t7s so why expect them to give away more?

^ No, we expect them not to give ridiculous advantages to those least in need of advantages, cuz top players rolling snowball of advantage is becoming really rather obscene. Have you lot actually got any self respect, or do you want your mods & toons & OP reward tanks to do absolutely every last thing for you?

 

Edit - and as everyone else who isn't top, they'll have to pay real money for their 'prize' tonk, which of course they will cuz it's intentionally so OP. WG are trying to pay-off their top player opinion formers so they can rip off everyone else, either by making them pay, or by subjecting them to people who have got these OP tanks. And it will be like this next main campaign, I bet 6.5k free tier 10 reward tanks then another 8.5k for gold. Then we'll start to see some squealing.

Don't think it works that way dude read the new text again, the first 4,500 get one free but then ''we will provide the opportunity to the event participants to purchase a total of 6,500 IS-5 tanks with in-game gold'' in other words the remaining 6,500 don't go to the next 6,500 players in ranking but rather 6,500 random participants who purchase it first.
