Finaly we have an option to buy the massive TOG II - or so called Torture Over Game II.

Players should also have an option for: ( random TOG II battles :trollface:  ) .

NO FV201 (A45). Btw, when are you planning to update it's gun dispersion to make it better than the same gun on the lower tier TOG II?

 

What's wrong with the TOG's gun? It's one of the best on it's tier! APCR has pretty decent penetration of 239. IS-3 with 225mm AP penetration struggles only against a few tier 9's and 8's. (Newly introduced tier 8's are a pain ofc. GJ WG.)

This is really a poor focus. Who will buy the TOG II?!

 

I'd buy one if I didn't own one already. - It has preferential matchmaking and pretty decent carry potential if you don't get shot by 5 guys at the same time.

"What they may lack in alpha damage they make up for in incredible rate of fire."

 

Yeah, see, that's nowhere near true. UK has low alpha alright, but their RoF is in no way "incredible" and with the exception of Tortoise and maybe something in the other TD line their DPM is a joke.

£17.54 for the TOG II??

 

I'm sure I picked mine up not so long ago in the bundle with the T14, FCM36Pak40 etc. for about a tenner...

Is the FV good?

I already got 28 prem days left and i'm confused if i should buy the FV4202 or M4 REV from the frenches....did you liked the FV? Makes good credits? People say its ther worst tier VIII Prem

 

I`m the last guy to toot WG`s horn, but I feel a need to stand up for this tank.

 

IMO, after the latest buff FV is a fairly good tank. Of course there are better tier 8 premiums (OPject 252 etc.), but if you want a British trainer AND a tier 8 premium, FV is not a bad choice.

Also, that deal isn`t bad. 1 month premium=~10 euros. So the FV comes to about 20 euros which is a nice price for a tier 8 prem.

Ouch, so because you don't have a tier 8 Brit you don't get the x3. That's savage.

I still don't understand the setup for these specials. "Let's put a discount on the tanks that are cheap anyway, and then screw new players by only rewarding them for playing tiers that fall outside that discount. Also, only some shitty bundles in premium store, no in-game discount on low tier premiums or anything". Brilliant.

Dear WG

 

You used to give regular discounts on things like crew training, camo, garage slots and equipment. Christmas aside, these seem to have dried up since October. At this point in time, I need to spend 5161 gold on crew training, skill resets and camo (at discounted rates of course), and that is just on the tanks that are sitting unused in my garage. As soon as I have more garage slots (I would have bought at least 20 @ 3000 gold since Christmas), I would spend a further 2500 gold on crew training for the tanks I have left unbought because I am short of garage slots.

 

That's 10,661 gold I have not spent because there have been so few of these particular discounts, and that does not include the camo for the 5 tanks I would have bought if I had more space.

 

I am trying to expand my collection to include all of the tanks that actually existed, were in mass production and/or were in service, and with a job that big I would be a fool not to buy these things on discount.

 

I am just one player. These discounts are the lifeblood of the game and without them we are all stifled in our attempts to progress.

Well, today's gaming session was great for reminding me why I never play UK tanks any more. No point in playing vehicles that have nothing going for them except supposedly good accuracy and gun handling in a game in which accuracy is a complete joke. :sceptic:

I find it kinda funny that WG still use the (old) picture of the TOG in the premium shop before the remodel (HD and trackskirts on the front)

I'm surprised they never used this one after the seconds of hard work I put into it.

 

 

Though I have this vague memory of the pic being deleted and me being put on RO last time I posted it so maybe it's not that surprising, and perhaps this is not the smartest of posts.

At least put it in spoiler tags, that's a man's winky! I mean, what would the Pope say? :ohmy:
