Will it justify price tag of 100 Euro?

Well it's essentially a year worth of premium + like 6K gold + (free) tank. But yea, it's steep as hell, that price tag.

I've got the Hydro. Had it for ages.

 

It's rare, that's for sure, but it's pretty meh as premiums go - it's basically just a Pz.IV. So don't expect some super OP carrywagon.

I remember, when it was first available with the Razer Mouse, then WG said - noooo, it wil never be available on any other occasions or packages.

Yeeeah, that worked out well. ;)

 

I just really hope, they will put MicroMaus in these "gem" packages, as that is the only tank, which isn't tied to some preorder-like stuff and hasn't been available on sale for ages.

For 20€ we could talk about it but 100€ is just way to much. Id rather buy 2 or even 3 T8 prems for that money.

Hydro still have preferential MM so only sees tiers V and VI? If so surely that is its biggest selling point?

Pass... Hydro is just a different-looking Pz IV... Not worth the 100 euros i can spend on other stuff... Ill just wait for M6A2E1 to show up eventually.

Where did they say it? I looked around for quite a few minutes (because of discussion with friends) and couldn't find anything.

Hmm. Ironically, I'd probably rather buy it in an overpriced package with 5000 gold or so for, say, 30€, then in this package with the very decent value for money.

 

The problem is that I have enough gold, and Wargaming's policy assures me that I won't reach zero gold any time soon:

- Every special tank comes with another batch of gold, mostly enough for one or two months of premium time, or even direct premium time.

- Every new standard premium tank is delayed for a few months before you can buy it in-game, killing my immediate "must have" desire.

- It will be some time before I need new garage slots or barracks, and I won't ever pay gold for XP conversion, renaming, camouflage, gold ammo or things I even forget here.

 

So buying a special premium tank every quarter year or so keeps me in the game with premium. And since the Fury, most of them have been actually good tanks with higher tier, so much more interesting than the older special tanks.

Spending 100€ on an early and probably senseless replenishing of gold supplies in order to get a tank that I know is pretty meh is just not interesting; same goes for seal-clubber tanks like PzIIJ and BT-SV.

 

But if there are enough people for whom 100€ is not too steep, good for them and for Wargaming. :)
