Though you get the tank effectively free in the bundle, it's still a bundle, and this tank has been sold many times before.

I have to admit that this is definitely an improvement, last time this thing was sold it was bundle with 30 500 gold package for double the price :hiding:

 

thumbs up for trying WG !:medal:

Its sad with these bundles, as most people will NOT buy them, gladly I have that tank already, but I would not buy bundles of any kind.

One could always use a dedicated radio operator trainer. :P

 

I like these Collector's Gems, there hasn't been anything I'd want, so I've saved my money.

If you keep beating a dead horse vigorously it might move a little indeed.....

The fact that for most German heavy tanks this one can only train 3 crew makes it pretty poor really.

Damn, those Russians just love the fast money :/ 

10x20e = 200e, you will sell that much faster than that you will find idiots who buy 4x50e package now, 

 

Idiot WG

Used to be a good tank and was fun to drive. Now she has small chance against matildas and T4 (even T3) Tank destroyers. You have to spam the gold ammo. Do not buy her not worth it.

From a collectors point of view the collector in me would happily pay the same for this tank tier 4 tank as I would for the most expensive tier 5 (the Matilda BP at £6.04), if I wanted the gold I would also buy this pack as I'd be mad not to (get the gold I wanted plus a free tank, no brainer).

 

But I don't want the gold and the collector in me isn't daft enough to pay the same for a tier 4 heavy Tank as is currently being charged for a tier 8 TD (the Kanonenjagdpanzer).

 

Again I wonder why WG don't offer to options with these collectors gems, 1 with just the tank (as it is a "Collectors" tank they could get away with charging a bit more than normal) and 1 with the tank + bundle for those who need the gold/premium time. I honestly think it would make them far more money than trying to charge tier 8 prices for a tier 4 just because they stuffed some gold into it as well.

Do you remember that this "Collector's Gem" will be possible to play only on +/- 7 maps ...

because WG reduced the number of maps on lower tiers significantly, right ?

One premimum tier IV with not so many maps to play on now... + crew config not suitable... + gold? No thank you.

Still have lot of gold and can not use it in such "offers"... No, no and again NO!!!!!!!!

Another big joke, sorry... :confused:

It's a great bully tank (best MM, good premium round, troll armour), but rather limited for crew training due to configuration (2 radiomen, driver and commander)...

 

... just not for 50 EUR.

 

Unfortunantely, the added value of gold is pretty questionable, when you can't use it for many nice or interesting premium tanks.

I am wondering if WarGaming staff really reads the comments here... The "bundle" case comes back everytime... But they still persist. Maybe they get enough cows to milk anyway... :sceptic:

One day .. WoT will be over ... and you will still have over 1 million of unspent gold on your account ... bright future, isn't it ?

Unfortunately I have to agree with the posters above that say that this tank is just not worth it..

 

It has the wrong crew layout, with 2 radio-operators and no gunner, which sort off makes it useless in terms of crew training.. It needs gold to pen almost anything it meets... Matilda, hetzers etc just laugh at your shots whilst penning every shot they take at you, as I for one have never noticed that it has good armor...

 

I got it as a bonus with one of the Italeri kits, but it has been such a pain to play, that I actually sold it.
