Again, none of the new premiums at a 30% discount, just old powercreeped ones. (with the exception of the STA-2 which is ok now)

What's this WG? Clearing out all the garbage Premiums that look like a joke compared to the new faceroll op wagons? This whole "sale" relies on ignorant and misinformed players to make a horrible mistake of buying one of these.

Any of these medium tanks worth it? I don't have any tier 8 premium tank and I need a good but cheap grinder

59-Patton is expecting an armor buff according to supertest and other improvements.

Patton Korea, meh, nothing special I guess, just another T25 Pilot 1 in my opinion.

8.8 Jagdtiger, I like it, had some nice matches in it, but needs some buffs now.

Panther 8.8, much better now, but still not the great sniper it's supposed to be.

STA-2, much improved by the latest buffs, definitely worth buying.

T-34-3 is expecting some armor buffs according to supertest and I think some other improvements.

 

I would say that the STA-2 stands out, at least for me, but I already have it along with most of the other tanks.

Only the 2 Pattons I am missing but I am not really tempted to spend the cash on them.

59 Patton - Punchbag for T9s and T10s - there is a reason you don't see many of them. Loses the T59's hard-hat and gets a big 'shoot me' turret in return.

Patton Korea - Probably the best of the list in my opinion - but let's be honest a Pershing is probably just as fun to play and doesn't cost a penny to acquire.

8.8 JT - Big slow bunker that unfortunately finds itself in a Tier full of similar bunkers which hit harder and faster. Keep looking for an excuse to buy one as a German TD trainer - but I have yet to find it.

Panther 8.8 - Panther II with faster firing gun - however since the P2 got the long(even longer) 8.8cm it's probably a better sniper.

STA - Fairly good - but still a soft medium in a tier dominated by heavies and a matchmaker that hates T8s. 

T-34-3 - Armed with the Chinese copy of the Russian 122mm - with added inaccuracy and comical gun handling on top. Armour buffs incoming - although you'll still struggle to hit anything further away than 100m.

 

Just a note - in all of the above cases, they all need a good load-out of premium to be competitive in the current MM - so if your main priority is credit-grinding you may wish to look elsewhere. I'd get the Korea Patton if I didn't already have the Pershing, T25 Pilot, M46, M48 and Super Pershing.

As far as I remember, none of tier 8s were on 30% discount sale, EVER, not even close so many premiums at a time, not on Christmas or anniversaries. Suddenly, when these are *Edited on by new premium tanks and by MM like never before, is it possible? That smells miles away, and most of us know that it is not a pleasant smell.*Edited

 

My personal guess is, that they did not sell much, or enough as planned, so they put this offer randomly to compensate for "losses".

Just a simple question to Wargaming staff and/or anyone who can enlighten me. -  What is the point of x5 xp multiplier missions only for a premium tank? 

 

Does this convert to x5 crew xp if crew training is accelerated?

I got the T-34-3 in anticipation of the armour and aim time buffs, and when tanks go HD there are usually some other tweaks.

yes, if you select accelerate crew training, then these 5x XP missions will boost your crew training significantly. Nice bonus.

They were, about 2(??) years ago, I remember it.

 

That is why, when they announced they were going for the highest ever discount on high tier premium tanks, I expected 50% discount.

Very tempting to get the 59-Patton and/or the T-34-3 but the former has a tumourous cupola and the latter, poor gun-handling and accuracy. If these are addressed we can talk. 'Till then, I'm afraid I'll have to pass.

 

Otherwise these are very good deals, WG.

 

But can we talk about instating  the Kanonenjagdpanzer on permanent sale? It's considered one of the worst vehicles in the game and it's rarely used, so I'm pretty sure there won't be any major backash if you do (that I can think of, apart from toms or pots). I could use proper German TDs and I value mobility over armour.

Premium tanks are a mixed bunch, the best of the bunch are the equal of standard tanks and that is exactly how it should be.

The point about this game is that you gain tanks by paying whether you pay with time money or both is up to you.

Skill means you pay less than the less skilled and that is how it should be.

However you gain your tanks there is no longer a reason to make premiums and standard tanks gimped other than to balance them in the game.

 

There are a number of older premiums that are gimped and they have preferential MM these should be buffed or retired Buff them and remove the special MM or just lose them

If they are removed then current owners get a choice of gold or a replacement premium tank tank.

 

If you want to encourage players to buy more premium tanks, use standard modules on them so if you buy one you might be unlocking modules on similar standard tanks.

This again fits the idea of paying with time or money.

Who cares for those underpowered tanks, where are Defender and Patriot?

We want real premium tanks.
