Looks like a good tank, and I'm glad you have given people the option to apply the camo or not - certainly a good sign and I hope this continues going forward.

 

BUT - my problem with this is that we now have 3 French premium medium tanks in the game, and we have a total of 4 French non-premium tanks in the game. I think the ratio has got a little out of control. Call me silly, but surely it would of made sense to put the Lorraine at tier 8 leading to the Bat-Chats, and the CDC leading to the AMX 30's, leaving the M4-Rev as the only Premium.

"Having gathered your feedback in regard to the Patriot and Liberté, this time we have decided to make the custom camouflage optional: this means that it is completely up to you if you want to apply it or not - the patterns will remain available in the Exterior menu, next to the standard ones available for other French vehicles, and can be applied/ removed at will."

 

See, that wasn`t that hard now, was it? :)

Ah yes, WG has created yet another tier 8 premium for people to buy.

Seems like a good revenue generating strategy. :coin:

I'm not complaining.  It keeps their families fed and maintains the potentially Play4Free game going.

I like how it entered the armory and how it's possible to purchase it for gold. Not only can I get rid of a part of my huge stash of some 25k€, removing that feeling that I spent more money on the game that I can use; it is also useful for Wargaming, because it makes me desire more gold much sooner, meaning that I might just buy another bundle this year.

 

A win-win situation, well done. :)

 

Too bad it is not actually reality.

Actually, this was the only premium I was interested in lately because it's not blatantly overpowered like the Defender or the Patriot were (and arguably the Mle49).

 

It's a tank that requires finesse, skill and has a very high skill-cap if you are a good player while not protecting the newbs that should really not be playing tanks of this tier to begin with.

 

Also kind of you to include camo schemes as optional (although the ones on the Lorraine not eye-bleedingly bad) and a 100% crew.

Tempting. I was sad to see it go from T9.

 

Good job on the camo options, although the custom stuff isn't clownish in the first place, this is a good option going forwards.

Good Tier 8, then they ruined it by making it a tier 9. Good ££££ business sense to reintroduce it as a T8 premium though a little steep price wise, Will never see the tech tree with 3 already and far to many fools selling for gold only wouldnt make the bucks.

more tanks = more variability... premium tanks is not insta win, coz u get few newbies in each battle with these tanks and they will balance u very quickly :trollface:

All right. Never did like the Lorraine. Never hated it either. It was perfectly fine, just not a worthy tier 9 tank. Now it's on the tier it always belonged on. And it's the first premium that fits a Bat-Chat 25t crew 1:1 perfectly. Doesn't seem ridiculously overpowered, but still capable. Available in three different packages, including the completely basic one with no extras. Paintjob is completely optional and switchable.

Very good Wargaming, very good. If I was to nitpick, I guess it would be nice if it made it into the tech tree at some point, but I'm not expecting every single premium to go there. And since you made some effort to actually add in-game premiums very recently, I'm not going to deduct any points for this.

 

All in all, ticks all my boxes. First time I'll be spending money on the game in a long time. Because I like the tank, and because I feel like Wargaming has been listening for once. Or are at least pretending to. ;)
