Is not a bad offer at all (FV4202 £27.80 + 30D £9.95 for £29.95), but premium account is a curse to keep me playing this game.

Nitpicky I know, but like the T34 from part1, it seems weird to be associating tanks developed after June 6th 1944 with this event. 4202 was according to the tech tree developed in 1956.

This extrs history is just GOLD (One of the best history channels for people who just want to know basic things about history), good job WG for supporting them and this D-Day series are amazing :), movie about british mathematicians trying to crack that german Enigma was great and I recommend it, anyways keep up the good work supporting such great channels, and ofcourse world of tanks has thought me how to recognise WW2 tanks :)

So in effect this gives you 30 days premium, 7300 gold for the FV and 300 gold for the garage slot - all for the same price as the 30 days prem plus 7000 gold 'cherry on the top' bundle
Seems good value

However the weekend after next is the Tankfest promotion where they are giving discounts on British tanks, a 15% discount on the FV then would make it worth waiting to buy the FV.  What do you think the chances of a discount on British premiums in the Tankfest promotion is ?

Again selling something... you can't just tell a story about history without foching selling something?!

 

"Today, Wargaming and Extra Crditsthe creative minds behind one of YouTube's best channels on gaming and history, present to you the second episode of the short series about the Invasion of Normandy. In this episode you will learn how deception, false information, and cracking the Enigma code had a huge impact on the development of the operation for the Brits."

 

Indeed this sentence is perfect for you WG and YOU will learn also one day!

You will learn how deception, false information, and cracking your community had a huge impact on the development of your game!

We wanted to have a tank coming from the nation of each episode's key topic. Therefore with the episode 1 covering the US, we had put a T34 in a bundle, and with the episode 2 covering the British, the FV had seemed as a good fit. We were not targeting the actual timeline, as we would not have been able to prepare content of the same level for all the bundles.
